Medi shall not be liable in any way for any such variation or the consequences thereof.
5.1 Any time or date given for delivery of the Items whether specified in the Order or otherwise given by Medi shall be taken as an estimate made by Medi in good faith but shall not be binding upon Medi as a term of the Contract or otherwise.

5.3 Medi will not be liable for delays in the delivery caused by their distributors or any other third party.

5.5 Where Items are delivered by instalments under the Contract each installment shall be deemed to be sold under a separate Contract and any failure on the part of Medi for the delivery of a particular installment or any defects in workmanship or materials affecting any particular installment shall not entitle the Purchaser to repudiate the Contract with regard to any installments remaining deliverable or to refuse or withhold payment for any Items delivered.
5.6 The Purchaser agrees that section 32(3) of the Sale of Items Goods 1979 shall not apply to Items sent by Medi.

8.1 All prices quoted are inclusive of VAT and unless specifically stated are based upon costs current at the date of quotation.
8.2 The Purchaser is responsible for the payment of all costs relating to the delivery, packaging and other applicable taxes and levies in relation to the Items.
8.3 The price of Items may be subject to variation to take account of variations in labour, materials or other costs since the date of Medi’s quotation or (if no quotation is issued) the Purchaser’s Order. Medi accordingly reserves the right to adjust the invoice price payable by the amount of an increase or decrease in such costs after the price is quoted and the invoice so adjusted shall be payable as if it were the original Contract price.
9.1 All prices on the Website are quoted in pounds sterling (£). The price of any Item will be as quoted on the Website from time to time, except in cases of manifest error.
9.2 The Website contains a large number of Items and it is always possible that, despite Medi’s best efforts, some Items listed on the Website may be incorrectly priced. Medi will normally verify the price as part of its despatch procedures so that, where an Item’s correct price is less than the price stated on the Website, the Purchaser will be charged the lower of these two prices. If an Item’s correct price is higher than the price quoted on the Website, Medi will, at its sole discretion, either contact the Purchaser for instructions before despatching the incorrectly priced Item or reject the Order in respect of the Item and notify the Purchaser accordingly.
9.3 Medi accepts payment via Visa, MasterCard, Maestro/Solo, Visa Debit/Electron or PayPal.
9.4 If the Purchaser is shopping from outside the UK, the Purchaser`s credit card company will convert the transaction to the Purchaser`s own local currency. Payment of any additional charges levied as a result of such currency conversions shall be the Purchaser’s sole responsibility. Any customs or import duties levied once the Item reaches the Purchaser`s destination country will be the Purchaser’s responsibility as Medi has no control over these charges and cannot predict them.
9.5 The Purchaser’s credit/debit card will be authorised as soon as is reasonably practicable after the Purchaser’s Order is placed and processed but the Purchaser will not be charged for the value of the Items until they are despatched.
9.6 Prices and availability of Items are subject to change without notice but changes will not affect orders in respect of which Medi has sent a confirmation of despatch. A postage and packing charge will be added to the Order where relevant and as quoted on the Website.
9.7 A confirmation email will be sent when an Order is placed.
9.8 If the Purchaser fails to make any payments when due Medi may at its option and without prejudice to any other rights or remedies which it may have under the contract:
9.8.1 suspend any further deliveries until payment is made; and/or
9.8.2 repudiate the Contract;
and Medi shall be entitled to charge interest (both before and after judgment) on the outstanding balance of all overdue accounts from the date of the invoice until the time of payment calculated on a daily basis at a rate of 4% above the base rate from time to time of Natwest Bank Plc.
9.9 Time for payment is of the essence for the purposes of the Contract.
9.10 The Purchaser shall not be entitled to withhold payment of any amount payable under the Contract (or any other contract between the parties) because of a disputed claim of the Purchaser in respect of faulty Items or any other breach of contract, nor shall the Purchaser be entitled to set-off against any amount payable under the Contract (or any other contract between the parties) to Medi any monies which are or are purported to be payable by Medi.

In these circumstances, Medi will refund the price of the Item in full. However, the Purchaser will be responsible for the cost of returning the Item to Medi.
11.4.2 If the reason for the returning of the Item is that the Purchaser believes the Item to be defective, Medi will carry out such tests as are reasonably necessary to test the functionality of the Item. If, having conducted such tests, Medi comes to the reasonable conclusion that the Item is of a satisfactory quality within the meaning of the Sale of Goods Act 1979 as amended, Medi shall be under no obligation to offer any refund and may at its sole discretion elect to either:
188.8.131.52 offer a partial or full refund as Medi deems fit;
184.108.40.206 send the original Item back to the Purchaser at the Purchaser’s expense; or
220.127.116.11 carry out such reasonable alternative action as Medi deems fit.
11.5 When returning Items, it is the Purchaser’s responsibility to arrange and pay for the return of the Items to Medi. The Purchaser should ensure that all parcels are sealed and well protected and that the Purchaser has completed and enclosed the return form.
11.6 Medi strongly recommends that the Purchaser obtains proof of posting of any returned Items as Medi cannot accept responsibility for returned Items that are lost or damaged in transit.
11.7 Postage and packing costs incurred by the Purchaser in connection with returned Items are not refundable unless the goods are faulty or incorrect.
11.8 For reasons of hygiene Medi is unable to refund or exchange pierced earrings.
