Sale of goods law
1. Non-exclusive distribution agreements
These distribution agreement templates set out the obligations of a supplier and a distributor in relation to a non-exclusive distributorship - that is, a distributorship granted on the basis that other distributors may be appointed with respect to the same market. All the agreements include provisions covering the scope of the appointment, the specific duties of the parties, order procedures, charges, payments, confidentiality and liability. In addition, all the agreements include a schedule containing terms and conditions of supply.
2. IT support terms and conditions
These terms and conditions should be used in relation to general IT support services provided to businesses. They are not suitable for use in relation to contracts with consumers. All these templates include an optional data protection clause to help services providers who are acting as processors (rather than controllers) comply with their obligations under data protection law.
3. Terms and conditions of sale via website
These terms of sale can be used in relation to the online sale of physical products. All of these terms of sale templates have the same basic structure. They define the order process through which products may be ordered; they describe how prices are specified and how payments must be made; they detail the delivery process for products orders; they set out information about warranties given by the seller and limitations of liability; and they establish the circumstances in which orders may be cancelled. The B2C versions of the terms of sale include a set of clauses detailing consumer rights under the distance selling rules.
4. Manufacturing agreements
These agreements provide a framework within which a manufacturer and a customer may contract for the manufacturing and supply of products. The agreements assume that the products will be specified by the customer. All versions of the manufacturing agreement include, as schedule, a set of terms and conditions governing the specific legal basis upon which products are supplied. These terms and conditions cover, for example, the passage of title and risk to the customer.
5. Delivery policies
Designed for use in relation to an ecommerce website, these delivery policies describe the delivery methods used as well as delivery timetables. They should be used alongside our terms and conditions of sale via website documents. They can be used for both B2B and B2C stores.
6. Returns policies
These policies should be used to document discretionary returns and refund offers in relation to website sales. They are not intended to regulate statutory returns, which are covered by our terms and conditions of sale via website documents. If you are not proposing to offer customers rights going beyond the statutory basics, you do not need any of these policies.
7. Exclusive distribution agreements
These template distribution agreements can be used by a supplier granting exclusive rights to a product distributor. Typically, the exclusivity will relate to a particular geographic marketplace. Both versions of the agreement include a schedule containing terms and conditions governing product supply (including transfer of title, transfer of risk and supplier warranties).
8. Online shop terms and conditions
9. Terms and conditions of supply
These terms and conditions cover the sale and supply of physical products by one business to another. The core obligations in the agreement cover the manner of supply or collection, responsibility for transportation and insurance, the passage of title and risk, customer obligations in relation to onward sales, and charges. These terms and conditions should not be used in relation to B2C contracts.
