. It is always possible that, despite our best efforts, some of the goods or services we sell may be incorrectly priced. We will normally check prices before accepting your order so that, where the correct price for the goods or services at your order date is less than our stated price at your order date, we will charge the lower amount. If the correct price at your order date is higher than the price stated to you, we will contact you for your instructions before we accept your order.

16.6 We can charge interest if you pay late
. If any charges remain unpaid for more than 28 days we may charge interest to you on the overdue amount at the rate of 2% a year above the base lending rate of Bank of England from time to time. This interest shall accrue on a daily basis from the due date until the date of actual payment of the overdue amount, whether before or after judgment.

. 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. For example, if you miss a payment and we do not chase you but we continue to provide the service or goods, we can still require you to make the payment at a later date.
19.6 Which laws apply to this contract and where you may bring legal proceedings
. These terms are governed by English law. You can bring legal proceedings in respect of the goods or services in the English courts. If you live in Scotland you can bring legal proceedings in respect of the goods or services in either the Scottish or the English courts. If you live in Northern Ireland you can bring legal proceedings in respect of the goods or services in either the Northern Irish or the English courts. If you live elsewhere in the European Union you can bring legal proceedings in respect of the goods or services in either the court in the country in which you reside or the English courts.
19.7 Alternative dispute resolution
. Alternative dispute resolution is a process where an independent body considers the facts of a dispute and seeks to resolve it, without you having to go to court. If you are not happy with how we have handled any complaint, you may want to contact the European Commission Online Dispute Resolution
platform. You can submit a complaint via their website at https://webgate.ec.europa.eu/odr/main/index.cfm?event=main.home.show&lng=EN.
