  2. Order and Acceptance
    2.1 You may place an order for Product(s) and/or Services directly with Dell either online or by telephone. The placing of an order by you represents your offer to buy subject to these Consumer Terms. Please note that the Contract between you and Dell is formed only when Dell accepts your order by issuing you with an Order Confirmation in writing.
    2.2 Any Products and/or Services forming part of your order which are not detailed in Dell's Order Confirmation do not form part of that Contract. If you notice any inaccuracies or errors in your Order Confirmation, you must contact Dell promptly upon receipt, and ideally immediately, so that Dell has an opportunity to correct any mistake or clarify any misunderstanding before commencing delivery/performance.
    2.3 Dell may make minor changes to the specification of the Product you order if for example there is a scarcity of a particular component or for any other reasonable grounds notified to you. Any such minor change will be to at least an equivalent or better specification and will not adversely affect the material functionality or performance of the Product or performance of the Service. Any such change will be set out in your Order Confirmation. If you notify Dell of your acceptance of any such minor change to your order, or subsequently accept delivery of items listed in the Order Confirmation that are subject to a minor change, and use them (or unseal the Software delivered to you), this conduct will constitute acceptance by you of the minor changes in the order.
    2.4 If Dell is unable to fulfil your order, Dell will notify you, and any payment received by Dell will be promptly returned.
     
  3. Price and Payment
    3.1 Dell requires payment in full prior to delivery/performance, and will suspend delivery and performance until full payment is received.

  4. Delivery, Ownership and Risk
    4.1 The place of delivery and estimated delivery date of Product(s) and/or Services will be stated on the Order Confirmation. If the estimated delivery date cannot be met, then Dell will notify you with a revised estimated delivery date. If delivery is not made within 30 days from the original date of your order and you have not subsequently accepted delivery or agreed to a delivery date outside the 30 days, you may cancel your order without charge and obtain a full refund. This right is in addition to your "cooling off" rights set out in clause 8 below.
    4.2 It is important that you examine the Product(s) carefully upon delivery. If you discover that anything listed in your Order Confirmation is missing, incorrect or damaged, you will promptly notify Dell in writing or by email. This will give Dell the opportunity to suggest an appropriate solution, which may include a price refund, replacement, or repair services.
    4.3 Once Dell delivers Product(s) to you (or your representative) you will take on risk of damage to or loss of the Product(s).
    4.4 Ownership of Product(s) will pass to you once Dell receives payment in full, or when Dell delivers the Product(s) to you (or your representative), whichever is later. That transfer of ownership of the Product does not mean that you own any Intellectual Property in the Products or Services you purchase from Dell. Ownership of such Intellectual Property remains with Dell and any applicable software licensors. If the Contract is terminated before that passing of ownership occurs, Dell may recover any Product(s) supplied to you and you agree to assist Dell in such circumstances.

    5.8 Dell will pass to you, to the extent that Dell is permitted to do so, the benefit of any warranty or guarantee given by the manufacturer or supplier of Third Party Product or Third Party Software. Without prejudice to your rights against Dell, Dell may therefore ask Third Party Product manufacturers and/or Third Party Software licensors to fulfill their obligations to you under such warranties and guarantees and seek to ensure that such manufacturers and/or licensors do so with reasonable skill and care and within a reasonable period.
     
  6. Services
    6.1 Dell warrants that Services shall: (i) conform to their Service Descriptions, and (ii) be performed with reasonable skill and care during the applicable Service period. You must provide Dell with all reasonable information, cooperation and courtesy to enable Dell to provide Dell Services.

    7.2 In the absence of licence terms accompanying Dell Software, Dell grants you a non-exclusive, non-transferable license to access and use Dell Software for the duration of the Service period and/or the life of the Product as applicable.

  8. Cancellations, Cooling Off and Returns
    8.1 Subject to clause 8.2 below, you have, for a short period, the right to cancel your Contract and return the Product. That period ends on the expiry of the period of seven (7) working days beginning on the day after the day on which:
    (a) you receive your Order Confirmation; or
    (b) if you are purchasing Product(s), those Product(s) are delivered to you;
    whichever is the later ("the Cooling Off Period").
    8.2 Your right to cancel under clause 8.1 will cease if the Contract is for:
    (a) the supply of Services to you and Dell has commenced providing the Services to you in accordance with your Contract; or
    (b) the sale of Software to you, which is delivered to you sealed, and it is unsealed (electronically or otherwise) by you or by someone acting on your behalf.
    If those Services or Software can be used by you independently of any other Product(s) or Services sold under the same Contract, this early cessation of the right to cancel will not apply to the Contract insofar as it applies to those other Products.
    8.3 Your right to cancel under clause 8.1 is in addition to your rights to cancel in the event of non or delayed delivery under clause 4.1 above, and your rights to cancel Extended Warranty Services under clause 6.5 above.
    8.4 In order to exercise your right to cancel your order pursuant to clause 8.1, you must notify Dell in writing of your wish to cancel and Dell will then arrange for collection of the Product(s) at a reasonable time. Dell will provide you with a return address and a return number which must be clearly stated on the packaged Product(s) to be returned. You must return all cancelled Product(s) to Dell in original condition. Return freight costs will be payable by you. Dell will refund you the price, less direct return freight costs it has paid on your behalf, as soon as possible and in any case within 30 days of receipt of the notice of cancellation from you. Please note that you must take reasonable care of Product(s) in your possession during the Cooling Off Period, and, if a Product is returned to Dell in a damaged state, you will be responsible for any part of that damage which occurred whilst it was in your care or control.
    8.5 Once the Cooling Off Period has ended, you do not have the right to return your order, unless Dell agrees in the circumstances set out in clauses 4.2 or 5 above or as provided in this clause 8.
    8.6 Where Software or operating system elements are included with hardware in Product Descriptions, you may not obtain a refund on return of only that Software or operating system element. To cancel in accordance with clause 8.1, you would need to cancel the Product order during the Cooling Off Period.
