These terms and conditions apply to any provision of services or materials by Shimin Insurance to the Client.
All Goods sold by Shimin Isurance are sold subject to the Company’s standard terms and conditions (as detailed below) which form part of the Client’s contract with the Company. Terms and conditions on the Client’s order form or other similar document shall not be binding on the Company.
The prices, quantities and delivery time stated in any quotation are not binding on Shimin Insurance. They are commercial estimates only which the Company will make reasonable efforts to achieve.
For email invitations, online fulfilment projects and direct marketing files (as provided by Prime Prospects) it is a requirement of the Company, that the email piece, online form or mail piece shall be approved by the company before an order can be confirmed and any data despatched.
Unless otherwise agreed, Shimin Insurance shall be entitled to sub-contract all or any part of the work.
The Company will use its best endeavours to supply the services or materials within the quoted time (normally within a maximum of seven days from order or otherwise as agreed) but time will not be of the essence within the contract.
The Client acknowledges that the rights to the Goods are owned by Shimin Insurance and that the Goods are protected by United Kingdom copyright laws, international treaty provisions and all other applicable national laws.
The risk of loss or damage to the Goods shall pass to the Client upon delivery of the Goods.
Shimin Insurance reserves the right to increase a quoted fee in the event that the client requests a variation to the work agreed.
In view of the nature of the service, any order – once confirmed by the Shimin Insurance – is not cancellable. Cancellation of the Order by the Client will only be accepted on condition that any costs, charges and expenses already incurred, including any charges that will be levied by a sub-contractor on account of their expenses, work or cancellation conditions will be reimbursed to the Company forthwith.
All written notices to be served on or given to the client shall be sent or delivered to the client’s principle place of business and shall be treated as having been given upon receipt.
Shimin Insurance will take all reasonable steps to ensure the protection from loss, damage or destruction of the services or materials it supplies to the Client (or which may be received from the Client).
Unless otherwise agreed in writing by Shimin Insurance, the Client (and their clients) shall be entitled to use the services and materials provided as follows:
Both parties shall maintain strict confidence and shall not disclose to any third party any information or material relating to the other or the other’s business which comes into that party’s possession and shall not use such information and material without written permission by the other party. This provision shall not, however, apply to information or material which is, or becomes, public knowledge by means other than by breach or by a party to this clause.
Subject to the prior written consent of the Company the Client shall not induce to employ, whether as an employee, agent, partner or consultant, any employee of the Company directly associated with delivery of the Goods.
The Client acknowledges that the Company is required to uphold at all times, in letter and in spirit, the British Codes of Advertising and Sales Promotion.
