1 THE WEBSITE

The website is made available free of charge.

We do not guarantee that our website, or any content on it, will always be available or be uninterrupted. We may suspend or withdraw or restrict the availability of all or any part of our website for business and operational reasons. We reserve the right to change data, references, product specifications, pricing or otherwise amend the content, in full or in part, at any time without notice.

2 ORDERING ONLINE

You can browse products and educational support information on Medical Shop. 

If you decide to purchase a product, click on 'BUY NOW’ and you will be redirected to an online retailer site which includes, but is not limited to Amazon.co.uk where you will then be able to place the product in your basket and follow the checkout procedure. From time to time, products are sold through other online retailer partners, who will be clearly identified prior to redirecting you to their site. In some cases, such as Amazon.co.uk, the partner site acts as our agent and your contract of purchase is with us. In other cases the partner site is our distributor and your contract of purchase is with the partner. 

We reserve the right to change product specifications, including pricing, at any time before your purchase of a product and without notice. The images of the products on our website are for illustrative purposes only. Although we have made every effort to display the colours accurately, we cannot guarantee that your device's display of the colours accurately reflects the actual colours of the products. Your product may vary slightly from those images.

The prices displayed on the website are only the prices at which Owen Mumford Limited offers the products for sale, through agents such as Amazon.co.uk. Where products are sold through independent retailers we have no control over the prices charged.

If you would like to download the educational support information available free of charge on medicalshop.co.uk, you will be required to create an account. This will enable multiple PDF downloads of support and information documents, which have been prepared to support people living with the common conditions associated with the products listed.

3 PAYMENT

Payment for product orders will be taken by the online seller. Our default platform for sales transactions is Amazon.co.uk.  In order to purchase the product/s you have selected, and if you do not already have an existing Amazon account, you will need to follow the Amazon.co.uk account set up and payment requirements.

Whilst online retailers offer secure shopping on their websites – we recommend that you always check security information and security guarantees for your own peace of mind.

Support and educational documents are provided free of charge – and can be accessed by creating a Medical Shop account.

This warranty is offered to you as a purchaser (“you”) by the Owen Mumford entity whose details are set out on the relevant product packaging (“we” or “us”). You cannot transfer this warranty to anyone else. This warranty is in addition to, and does not affect, your rights as a consumer or purchaser under the laws of your country.

This warranty applies for twelve months from the date of purchase (the “warranty period”).

If the product is or becomes materially defective during the warranty period, please notify us providing details of the defect and we will provide you with a replacement product. Subject to the laws of your country, we shall have no further liability to you after we have provided you with a replacement product.

When you contact us, we may ask you for details of the batch number or other form of identification of the product in order for us to further investigate the defect. We may also ask you to return the product and any provision of a replacement device is subject to us receiving the defective product from you.

This warranty will not apply to defects which are attributable to:

  • fair wear and tear;
  • handling, storage or use of the product other than in accordance with our instructions,
  • improper handling, storage or use of the product; or
  • damage or breakage caused by accident or by external causes beyond our control.

11 LIMITATION OF LIABILITY

If you use the products for any commercial, business or re-sale purpose we will have no liability to you for any loss of profit, loss of business, business interruption, or loss of business opportunity.

13 OTHER IMPORTANT TERMS

If a court finds part of this contract illegal, the rest will continue in force. Each of the paragraphs of these terms operates separately.

Even if we delay in enforcing this contract, we can still enforce it later. If we do not insist immediately that you do anything you are required to do under these terms, or if we delay in taking steps against you in respect of your breaking this contract, that will not mean that you do not have to do those things and it will not prevent us taking steps against you at a later date.

These terms are governed by English law and you can bring legal proceedings in respect of the products in the English courts.
