2. Information we give you

2.1.

We will give you this information in a clear and understandable way. Typically, we will do this before you buy the goods from us. Some of this information is likely to be obvious from the context. Some of this information is also set out in this contract, such as information on our complaint handling policy (see clause 11).

We will give you information on:

the main characteristics of the goods you want to buy


who we are, where we are based and how you can contact us


the total price of the goods including any value added tax or any other taxes (or where this cannot reasonably be worked out in advance, the manner in which we will work out the price)


all additional delivery charges (or where this cannot reasonably be worked out in advance, the fact that such additional charges may be payable)


the arrangements for payment, collection, delivery, performance, and the time by which we will deliver the goods


our complaint handling policy

the fact that we are under a legal duty to supply goods that are in conformity with the contract
