  1. Scope
    These Standard Terms apply to the supply of all products and services by Bourse Company Services Limited, unless we otherwise agree in writing.
  2. Agency
    We accept orders and instructions only on the basis that those instructing us do so as principals and are liable directly to us for payment of our account.
  3. Use of third party contractors
    We may, as your agent, directly or through an intermediary ask another contractor ("Third Party Contractor") to carry out some or all of any work which you instruct us to carry out for you. We shall pay the charges of Third Party Contractors on your behalf and recharge them to you with our own fees. We will take all reasonable care in selecting and instructing a Third Party Contractor. However, we have no control over the activities of a Third Party Contractor and therefore accept no responsibility for the services provided to you by that Third Party Contractor or for any errors or omissions in its work or products.
  4. Adequacy of instructions
    We provide services only on the basis that those instructing us give us all proper, necessary and timely instructions, authority and information (including the execution of all documents required) to enable us to undertake lawfully and effectively the business instructed, and that those instructing us indemnify us accordingly.
  5. Printing and publication
    We accept material for printing and/or publication on the basis that those submitting the material are responsible for ensuring it is free from defamatory matter and does not infringe copyright or any other third party rights, and that those instructing us indemnify us accordingly.
  6. Third party reliance
    Our services, including search reports and information services, are provided solely for the use of our client and that client's own client on whose behalf the work has been commissioned and shall not be used or relied upon by any other third party.
  7. Delivery of products and services
    Products are delivered using first class post, fax or email (as appropriate), unless otherwise stated. Where you request an alternative method of delivery, you must meet those costs. Services are provided using reasonable skill and care. The description and price of goods and services and delivery details will be provided in the confirmation of order and/or invoice despatched with the product or service. Products and services will be provided in accordance with the timescales set out in the Consumer Protection (Distance Selling) Regulations 2000 unless otherwise agreed with you.
  8. Payment
    We may require cash payment in advance before providing any goods or services. Where we have agreed credit terms for you our invoices are due for payment 30 days from their date.

  9. Search and other reports
    We accept no responsibility for the accuracy of any part of any search or other reports where it is apparent that it is not derived from information in a public register, or for any inaccuracy, omission or other error in any public register upon which our search or report is based.
  10. Non completion of services
    Where you instruct us to undertake any service, you will be responsible for our costs in providing that service whether or not it proceeds to its conclusion.
  11. Right to cancel
    Under the terms of the Consumer Protection (Distance Selling) Regulations 2000 you may have the right to cancel the contract between us within 7 working days of the day after the date on which you receive any product from us or the date on which the contract for the provision of services is concluded. This right to cancel does not apply to products which have been personalised or made or supplied to your specifications or to services once performance of those services has started with your approval. Where we provide a product to you, if you cancel you must return the product to us, at your own cost, in its original condition.

    Except in respect of claims for death or personal injury resulting from negligence or as otherwise prohibited by law, our liability for loss or damage in contract, tort (including negligence or breach of statutory duty), misrepresentation, restitution or otherwise, arising in connection with the performance or contemplated performance of our services under these Terms and Conditions shall not exceed £1,000,000.

  13. Data protection
    Bourse will use personal information which we hold about you to provide our services and products to you, for credit control and market research purposes and to inform you about our services and products, legal developments and training sessions or events which we believe may be of interest to you. We may share your personal information with other companies in our group.

    In order to provide services to you we may be required to pass your personal information to parties located outside of the European Economic Area in countries which do not have data protection laws equivalent to those in the UK.
