If you ask us to vary your order and agree with us an appropriate variation to the price and to the time scale for delivery, we agree to make the supply in accordance with those variations. We may vary the price by an amount sufficient to cover any significant increase in the cost of materials or other costs we incur to fulfil your order. We may also substitute suitable alternative materials without notice to you unless such substitution will result in delay in a fulfilling your order. If we are to fulfil your order within a reasonable time due to materials being unavailable for reasons beyond our reasonable control, we may cancel the order with no further obligation to you.
