2. Ruling Conditions
All contracts of sale made by the Company are subject to these conditions and any printed conditions on the Buyer’s order form or other documents shall not apply unless, and to the extent only that, they shall have been expressly accepted by the Company in writing. These conditions can be varied or added to or suspended only by agreement in writing between the parties or by typed or written amendment on the face of this document or some attachment to this document.

For the purpose of the recovery of its goods, the Company may enter upon the premises where they are stored and repossess them.

All matters relating to the formation, performance and discharge of the Contract shall be governed by English Law.
