These terms of sale apply to all goods supplied by SMC INTERNATIONAL, whose registered office is at B10/B11, Meghdoot Building, 94, Nehru Place, New Delhi 110019 (the “Supplier”, “Our”).
No contract exists between you and the Supplier for the sale of any goods until the Supplier has received and accepted your order and the Supplier has received payment in full (in cleared funds). Once the Supplier does so, there is a binding legal contract between us.
By way of clarification, an acknowledgement of your order will be sent to you via e-mail when you place your order, but acceptance of your offer to buy the goods will not take place until after your payment is taken and you receive your acceptance e-mail. It is at this point that a binding legal contract is created and any contract is subject to these Terms and Conditions.
The contract is subject to your right of cancellation (see below).
The Supplier may change these terms of sale without notice to you in relation to future sales.
