2.3 The Order shall only be deemed to be accepted when Wahlberg issues an Order Confirmation, at which point the Contract shall come into existence.

2.5 Any samples, drawings, descriptive matter, or advertising produced by Wahlberg and any illustrations contained in Wahlberg's catalogues or brochures are produced for the sole purpose of giving an approximate idea of the Goods described in them. They shall not form part of the Contract or have any contractual force.
2.6 A quotation for the Goods given by Wahlberg shall not constitute an offer. A quotation shall only be valid for a period of 30 Business Days from its date of issue. The offer is signed when the buyer accepts in writing via mail or letter.
3.1 The Goods are described in the Specification.
3.2 Wahlberg reserves the right to amend the Specification if required by any applicable statutory or regulatory requirements.

I. Each delivery of the Goods is accompanied by a delivery note which shows the date of the Order, all relevant Customer and Supplier reference numbers, the type and quantity of the Goods (including the code number of the Goods, where applicable), special storage instructions (if any) and, if the Order is being delivered by instalments, the outstanding balance of Goods remaining to be delivered; and

A waiver of any right or remedy under the Contract is only effective if given in writing and shall not be deemed a waiver of any subsequent breach or default. No failure or delay by a party to exercise any right or remedy provided under the Contract or by law shall constitute a waiver of that or any other right or remedy, nor shall it preclude or restrict the further exercise of that or any other right or remedy. No single or partial exercise of such right or remedy shall preclude or restrict the further exercise of that or any other right or remedy.
Third party rights. A person who is not a party to the Contract shall not have any rights under or in connection with it.
Except as set out in these Conditions, any variation to the Contract, including the introduction of any additional terms and conditions, shall only be binding when agreed in writing and signed by Wahlberg.
