2 Existence

- The seller expressly rejects the T&Cs in writing to the buyer prior to acceptance (see clause 1.4 & 1.4.1 for definition of acknowledgement and acceptance)

- Both the buyer and the seller enter into a wider Agreement in which the T&Cs outlined in this document are expressly rejected and bespoke terms and conditions are set up and agreed in writing

- Either party has legitimate claim that the T&Cs outlined are not being met either through force majeure or through a lack of any reasonable attempt to meet the conditions

3 Transfer of Rights and Responsibilities

3.1 The seller has no right to transfer any of their accepted rights and responsibilities implied either by English statute law or stipulated in these T&Cs or any other Wider Agreement which form the contractual obligations between buyer and seller to any other third party without the express permission and agreement in writing between the buyer and seller prior to acceptance of these T&Cs

5.2 In the event that any information is passed to a third party without the permission of both parties then it will be deemed reasonable that the affected can lay claim to damages and recompense resulting from the breach of trust such as, but not limited to loss of earnings, loss of potential earnings or lost sales opportunities

6 Safeguarding of Children

6.1 It is expected that any service or delivery of goods that reasonably requires the seller or his associates to enter onto any Training 2000 site must be done so by person(s) of good character without any prior indication of criminal activities

6.2 Where applicable it will be expected and detailed in a wider Agreement prior to commencement of trade that certain persons will be required to under the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) enhanced check and the Barred List application form check. Where applicable, those persons that do not meet this criteria will not be allowed on site and may be removed from site by reasonable force through our onsite security services

6.3 It is reasonable to assume that contact may occur between the seller’s associates and students or vulnerable adults at Training 2000. In the event that any sensitive information is divulged to the associates they must accept the responsibility to report this information immediately to their nominated contact or make every reasonable effort to report this information to a responsible person(s). In the event that any information is divulged the person(s) must take responsibility to record all information and ensure that they not paraphrase any details during their report of the incident

The use of photographic material without the express consent of the students or vulnerable adults involved

Any person(s) found to be in violation of this code of conduct will be removed from site immediately

7 Purchase Orders

7.1 Prior to any acceptance of goods or services the seller must be in receipt of an authorised purchase order, without which no Agreement or contract will deemed to be in place and therefore no goods, services or invoices will be accepted or processed

7.2 To be classified as an authorised purchase order this must include:

Order date

Vendor name and address

9 Delivery

9.1 All deliveries to Training 2000 are to be made directly to the Security Office signposted on site who will determine the most efficient method of completing the delivery, especially in the case where heavy lifting or specialist lifting equipment is required. For any specialist instructions prior to delivery the seller must ensure that they contact Training 2000 on 01254 54659 to make prior arrangement

9.2 The seller and any third party delivery company will bear all responsibility and liability for damages. The seller warrants that goods will be delivered in a timely fashion and any quality defects as a direct result of delivery will be compensated

9.4 Transfer or ownership, title and risk shall be deemed to have taken place once the Seller and, or, his delivery contractors are in possession of a signed delivery note from the Buyer

10 Force Majeure

10.1 It shall be expected that the terms and conditions stipulated within this agreement and within English statute law must be upheld to the best of the seller’s abilities at all times. However, it is also accepted by the buyer that occasions may occur where it is more difficult or not feasible for continued supply of the goods or service contrary to these T&Cs. During such time the buyer and seller both agree that the contractual arrangements already agreed to will be temporarily suspended until such time as both parties agree normal service can be reinstated. During this period the buyer also agrees that it can bring no charges for lack of goods or services to the seller; similarly the seller recognises that in all reasonable endeavours the buyer may not be able to process any due invoices in light of exceptional circumstances or forces preventing them from doing so. In the above cases it is expected that both parties hold appropriate risk management policies to ensure that disruption in such exceptional circumstances is kept to a minimum

11 Conflict Resolution

11.1 These T&Cs take precedence on the rulings and procedures that bind this agreement unless otherwise overridden by a wider Agreement

11.2 The buyer accepts that situations may occur which are not expressly covered within these T&Cs and therefore if any conflicts arising from uncertainty within the stipulations it is expected that both parties must meet and discuss a resolution to the uncertainty in a timely manner as quickly as possible so as to minimise impact on business relations

11.2.1 It is expected that within this period of resolution that, where possible, trading continues until such time as a resolution is made or the T&Cs are rejected and a counter offer is made or both parties cease to trade

11.2.2 During this time, the party who is at fault, unless otherwise agreed in writing, will pay for all costs associated with the delay or failure in deliveries or service

11.3 In the event of a meeting not resolving the situation within one calendar week the option of termination and the cease of trading as outlined in clause 2.2 will apply

11.4 Following a lack of resolution and the rejection of ceasing to trade as per clause 2.2 then resolution can be borne out of arbitration followed by a litigation process
