PART C: GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF SALE
These general terms and conditions of sale (“General Terms and Conditions of Sale”) apply to any order you place through our Website. These General Terms and Conditions of Sale apply regardless of how you access the Website. You must read these General Terms and Conditions of Sale carefully. By placing an order through the Website, you confirm that you have read, understood and agree to these General Terms and Conditions of Sale in their entirety and you agree to be bound by them. If you do not agree to these General Terms and Conditions of Sale in their entirety, you must not order any product or service through the Website.
Our cages, nets and traps were originally designed for the study of butterflies and moths, but are also suitable for the study of a variety of other insects. However they are not suitable for use with or exposure to species which are likely to bite, claw, or cause similar failure of fabric products. Any fabric item can be damaged by piercing, cutting, or abrasion/rubbing in the environment in which it is being used. To avoid damage we recommend that you carefully locate your cages or traps to avoid uneven, sharp, or rough surfaces or objects, and also minimise the potential for contact with predatory creatures. Climate specific tests on our fabrics have shown they can withstand a minimum of 12 months UK weather. However due to the wide range of other parameters outside our control we are unable to advise on, or guarantee the durability of, our materials or products in any given physical environment or for any specific purpose.
We sell small samples of material for testing purposes so that customers can test (or otherwise consider) whether our material is fit for their specific purpose before making their main purchase.
We do not replace products which have suffered failure during use as a result of chemical or mechanical damage (caused by, for example but not limited to: gnawing, abrasion, piercing, and so on) or from failure to follow our erection, cleaning, or storage instructions. Minor holes in our fabrics can be mended by hand darning, larger holes must be patched.
The insects pictured on our website illustrate a small number of the wealth of species in the UK and worldwide; they are not necessarily indicative of species that will be suited to rearing or study using our products.

OPENING AN ACCOUNT AND PLACING AN ORDER
Acceptance of Your Order
Completion of the online checkout process does not constitute our acceptance of your offer to purchase products or services from us. We will notify you by email as soon as possible to acknowledge that we have received and are processing your order. Our acceptance of your order will take place only when we despatch the product(s) or on commencement of the services that you ordered from us. Prior to despatch of the product(s) JoTech Ltd has the right to decline an order for any reason, including legal and regulatory reasons. The duration of our contract with you will start from when you receive the order despatch email and last until the last day of your right to return the products. If we cannot supply you with the product or service you ordered, we will not process your order and inform you of this in writing (via email) and, if you have already paid for the product or service, we will offer you the option to wait for the product to become available, or will refund you in full as soon as reasonably possible, but in any event no later than 14 days after receipt of your payment. If the fulfilment of an order (or any aspect of it) would be illegal or unlawful, including by reason of breach of export controls or sanctions rules, JoTech Ltd has the right to stop or cease to fulfil the order at any time, including after notification to you that the order has been received and is being processed. You acknowledge that JoTech Ltd shall not incur any liability in such circumstances.
Please note that in the case of any bespoke products it is your responsibility to ensure that your instructions are clear and complete and that we are therefore able to interpret your requirements correctly. It is also your responsibility to ensure that goods are safe and fit for purpose. Your approval of a bespoke design and / or test net must only occur when you have considered and are thoroughly satisfied with all aspects of the fabric, design, and fit, have considered how the net will perform in its final environment, and when any design or material limitations of the product (including possible points of failure) fall within your project parameters. We therefore recommend that you thoroughly test our products (including any sample materials, cage, trap, net, or frame) ideally in the environment in which it will be used, before signing-off production. We will produce all items to the specification and / or dimensions laid out in our business quote, but once the product has been approved cannot be held responsible for any design error, inaccuracy, lack of clarity or omission in your brief, or failure of the product we have supplied to perform as expected (including material failure).
Accepted Payment Methods
You may pay using any payment method specified in the checkout process. JoTech Ltd may change the payment methods at any time but this will not affect any existing order. The availability of a certain payment method may depend on your geographical location.
If you place an order on our Website, then you acknowledge and agree that: (i) JoTech Ltd will charge you through the payment method you have selected for your order and such other amounts that may accrue in connection with the order; (ii) that you will provide valid and current information for (a) yourself and (b) if applicable, another person, but only if you have first obtained their express consent to do so; (iii) that JoTech Ltd may use tools, software or services of payment processors to process transactions on their behalf; and (iv) if your payment is not received by JoTech Ltd for any reason from your card issuer, you agree to promptly pay all amounts due upon request and using the method that JoTech Ltd reasonably prescribes.
The price of products is shown in UK Pounds Sterling (£ GBP). You will be charged according to the applicable exchange rate at the time your order is accepted.
TAXES AND IMPORTATION CHARGES
All our products are subject to the standard rate of 20% VAT for orders placed in the UK. For certain shipping destination countries and/or products, you may be required to complete paperwork and/or pay applicable taxes when the goods reach the destination country. You acknowledge that such taxes are set by the shipping destination country and therefore may vary from country to country. You also acknowledge that you will be fully responsible for the completion of such documents and for paying all applicable taxes directly to the relevant authority (and for reclaiming them in the event of a cancellation of your order or the return of products, to the extent permitted in the these Terms) as determined by the authorities of the shipping destination country, and JoTech Ltd shall have no responsibility or liability in connection with the foregoing. In addition, should the shipment be refused entry to the country, confiscated or destroyed by the relevant overseas customs agency as a result of your failure to arrange documentation or to pay charges relating to importation, JoTech Ltd will not: pay for or supply you with replacement goods, reimburse you any sums you have already paid to us, or be held liable for any consequential loss or any other costs caused or incurred by you as a result of your failure to successfully complete the process of importation.
SHIPPING AND DELIVERY
Our shipping charges are calculated on checkout and include labour, packaging, and postage. Your goods will normally be shipped by Royal Mail or Parcelforce, however on occasion we do use third party agents who arrange onward shipping using a variety of couriers. A signature will normally be required on all items worth more than £20. Please ensure there will be someone at your nominated delivery address to accept the shipment.
Delivery (including delivery charges and timescales)
Delivery charges and timescales vary depending on the products ordered, the service selected and the delivery address. If no fixed date or timeline has been agreed upon, we aim to perform our deliveries within 30 days. Please note that certain products may be subject to alternative delivery charges, restrictions and/or timescales. Delivery to customers outside the UK may take longer than 30 days due to customs clearance or other importation factors. If delivery cannot be made to a customer due to the customer not being present at the address at the time allotted by the carrier or if a customer refuses to accept the products, JoTech Ltd reserves the right to deduct the outward shipping cost from the customer's refund for the order. All risk in the products you order (including risk of loss and/or damage to the products) shall pass to you when they are delivered to the delivery address or safe place specified in your order.
Where the supply of your product(s) or service(s) is delayed or prevented for reasons beyond our control (for example, courier strikes, material shortages, import delays or higher than anticipated demand) we will make every effort to keep you informed but shall be under no liability to you for such delay or failure. For the avoidance of doubt, this paragraph does not exclude or effect in any way any statutory right that is afforded to you to cancel an order when a product is delayed or not provided. From time to time our office is temporarily closed for special occasions (eg Christmas) which can cause delays or disruption. For such events we post a prominent notice on our Website giving estimated standard dispatch dates.
LOST, DAMAGED, OR INCORRECTLY SUPPLIED PRODUCTS
Most of our products are manufactured in house, and every effort is made to ensure that these reach you in perfect condition. If there is any problem with your purchase, please do not hesitate to contact us. You should check all products you receive against your order. If the products you receive are damaged or incorrectly supplied on delivery then you must note the details of any damage or error in supply on the order documentation or if you are unable to view the items on receipt, you must inform us (by post, phone or email only) within two working days. In the case of damaged goods, photographs that clearly show the nature and extent of the damage must be provided, as these will be requested by our courier. Do not return the products to us unless we ask you to do so. In the case of missing parts, we will supply these within 30 days. In the case of damaged or incorrectly supplied goods, we will offer you a refund or exchange. Any refunds will be made within 14 days of our offer to the debit/credit card account provided when you placed your order and will be subject to our right to withhold amounts for products which are damaged on return or for which we arrange collection.
You agree that proof of delivery supplied by our delivery company is sufficient evidence to establish that goods have been received. If you specifically ask us to leave an item with a neighbour, or in an unsecured or "safe" place (eg porch, outhouse, side-passage etc) then this request is entirely at your own risk, and JoTech will not be held liable for any theft of goods or consequential loss which occurs as a result of us complying with your instructions. With goods sent via the Royal Mail, please note that we may not be able to progress any order for lost goods until 15 working days after the approximate date on which goods should have been delivered - this is Royal Mail policy.
RETURNS AND REFUNDS - OUR GOODWILL POLICY
With certain exceptions as listed below, or where items have been purchased on behalf of a business or institution, if you are a UK customer and change your mind you can apply for a refund of unwanted goods under our goodwill policy. Applications must be made within 14 days of the receipt of your goods. To return your items, you will need to return all or part of your order within 14 days at your own cost through your preferred carrier. Items must be unused, returned in the original packaging, and in a re-saleable condition. If you choose to return any products to us, we will not be responsible for any loss or damage to them in transit and, for this reason, we recommend that you use a recorded delivery service. If returned products are lost or damaged in transit, we reserve the right to charge you (or not to refund any amounts attributable to) such loss or damage. The following are excluded from the goodwill policy and cannot be returned: eGift Cards, made to measure (bespoke) orders, sales of net plastic or geotextile cut to length for your order, and orders which have been specifically manufactured to meet your quantity requirements (any order with 10 or more identical items). If you are a non-UK customer please note you may have cancellation rights governed by local legislation. Nothing in these General Terms and Conditions of Sale will affect these statutory rights.
Within the UK please note that any refund will be the full price you paid for the goods less any non-recoverable transaction costs incurred by us. Non recoverable costs include a] any PayPal, WIX Payments, credit or debit card, or bank transaction fees b] express or additional shipping costs over and above our lowest shipping charges (we will refund the equivalent of our lowest shipping price only); c] and deductions relating to wear, tear, or damage to the goods whilst in your possession (including during return shipping). Outside the UK the refund will be for the invoiced price minus; the original shipping costs, and also minus a 20% re-stocking fee on the remaining balance.

TERMS SPECIFICALLY RELATING TO THE PURCHASE OF eGIFT CARDS
These additional terms and conditions tell you about the legal terms and conditions which apply to your purchase and use of digital Ento Nets Gift Cards (eGift Cards) and apply to pounds sterling eGift Cards purchased online through the Ento Nets website (www.insectcage.co.uk).
Ento Nets reserves the right to update and change the terms and conditions of our eGift Cards at any time. This does not affect your legal rights. Use of your eGift Card constitutes acceptance of our Terms and Conditions and we therefore recommend you read them carefully. It is your responsibility to check these gift card terms from time to time to ensure you are aware of any changes which may have been made. eGift Cards remain the property of Ento Nets who maintains the right to cancel the card in its sole discretion in situations where it is deemed necessary to do so (such as to comply with applicable laws or as a result of circumstances beyond its control).
The value of your eGift Card can be redeemed online at www.insectcage.co.uk. Only one gift card may be used per online order. Gift Cards may be used to pay for the whole or any part of an online order.
An eGift Card must be used within the redemption period, which is up to 24 months from the date of issue. After 24 months it will expire automatically. A gift card cannot be used after the expiry date; any remaining balance will be removed and the card will become invalid and no longer available for use. We have no obligation to remind or inform you of a gift card’s expiry and it is your sole responsibility to ensure that any balance is used in full prior to expiry.
The eGift Card balance cannot be exchanged for cash or redeemed against the purchase of another card.
The maximum amount that an individual eGift Card can hold is £100.00. Ento Nets will provide you with specific denominations to choose from, or you can select any amount up to this maximum to load on to your eGift Card.

Any goods paid for using a gift card that are subsequently returned for a refund will be credited on a new eGift Card.
