Terms and Conditions of Sale
Payment and Delivery
Full payment is required in advance for all purchases unless otherwise agreed. We reserve the right to decline acceptance of an order if we deem there is a good reason for doing so. If we export an order to you at an address outside the UK, the total order charge made does not include any international customs and/or brokerage fees you may incur, or any applicable local sales taxes imposed by your own country of residence. Value-Added Tax (VAT) will be added to orders automatically if applicable and this amount will be calculated and shown before you commit to the order. Ownership of goods remains with Quiet PC LLP until paid for in full.
For trade credit account customers, credit terms are that payment is due 30 days from the date of the invoice and payment needs to be received promptly in accordance with these terms, otherwise the account may be put on hold pending payment in full of the outstanding amount.
Individual product prices do not include delivery and a delivery charge will be automatically added to each order placed. This charge will be shown on the order form before you confirm your order. We use a variety of different carriers in order to fulfil orders, and an opportunity to select a preferred carrier method is given at checkout, but we reserve the right to use other methods and/or carriers without notice. The final decision on carrier choice is made by us depending on product weight and intended destination.
For orders received on a working day before 15:30 UK time and which include only items which are in stock, we will endeavour to make a same-day despatch, or as soon as possible afterwards. At times of very high demand, despatch times may be slightly increased although this is rare. Deliveries sent to UK addresses will normally take one working day to arrive after despatch, although extremely remote locations may take longer.
We will endeavour to show the stock status of all products on the ordering page. If you order any product(s) which are not in stock, then your order will be placed on hold until all the products you have ordered are available, and then your order will be shipped complete. If you would prefer to receive items which are in stock first, without the whole order being held up, then please place separate orders for products which are in stock and products which are out of stock. Please note that for technical reasons, your credit card will be charged within 1-2 days of placing the order on the website, not when the product is despatched. If you are unhappy with this arrangement, please wait until items are shown as being in stock before placing an order.
Money Back Guarantee/Returns (RMA)
In the unlikely event that a product from Quiet PC LLP does not meet with your expectations, you may return the item to us. You must ensure that any returned goods are complete including all fittings and are undamaged, resalable and in their original packaging. Responsibility for shipping costs when returning goods lies entirely with you, the customer. Before returning goods, you must notify us of your intention to do so by contacting us. At that time we will provide you with a returns (RMA) number which you need to quote on the outside of the returned package and along with your name and address on a covering letter inside the returned package. Goods returned without an RMA number will not be accepted. If we do not receive your goods within 14 days of the RMA number being issued to you, then the RMA number becomes void and you will need to request a new RMA number.
If you notify us that you wish to send goods back to us within seven working days of your receipt of them, then we will refund both the product cost and the original shipping cost within 30 days if you are returning the complete order only. Postage will not be refunded for a partial return. The seven working day "cooling off" period starts on the first working day after you receive your goods. If you notify us that you wish to send goods back to us within 30 days of your receipt of them, then upon our receipt of the returned goods we will refund the original product cost only within 30 days of our receipt. The 30 day "money back guarantee" period starts on the first day after you receive your goods.
We cannot accept returns of software which has been opened. All goods must be returned as supplied with regard to packaging and general condition. In the event that goods are returned in unacceptable condition, refunds will made at our discretion and any refund made will be subject to a restocking fee. All special order items and items sold to trade customers are subject to a restocking fee. Please ensure your parcel is sensibly and suitably packed and protected.
All complaints will be acknowledged within five working days and usually sooner. Please submit complaints by email or in writing. We are committed to resolving any issues as quickly as possible.
For retail purchases direct from our website, Quiet PC LLP warrants that the products it sells are free from defects in material and workmanship for a minimum period of two years from the date of original purchase. For goods sold to trade customers, the warranty period is the manufacturer's warranty period only. Quiet PC LLP will, at its discretion, either repair or replace any product which proves defective by reason of improper workmanship or materials. Repair parts or replacement products will be provided by Quiet PC LLP on an exchange basis, and will be either new or refurbished to be functionally equivalent to new.
New goods supplied to replace previously purchased goods which have failed during their warranty period will not serve to extend the warranty period which started when the failed goods were originally purchased. This warranty does not cover any damage to products which results from accident, abuse, misuse, incorrect installation, incompatibility, natural or personal disaster, or any unauthorised disassembly, repair or modification. Note that all items sold as B-Grade have a one year warranty period only which is provided by Quiet PC LLP, and no manufacturer warranty applies.

Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE)
Quiet PC LLP is fully compliant with the government's Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment directive (WEEE) which came into effect on 1st July 2007. This legislation aims to reduce the amount of obsolete I.T. equipment going into landfill by forcing suppliers to pay for its safe disposal. Therefore we are now members of a government-approved "distributor take-back scheme" which offers recycling services for obsolete products which are no longer required. To find your nearest disposal point, please visit the recycle-more website.
The amount of WEEE which consumers throw away is increasing by around 5% each year, making it the fastest growing waste stream in the UK. Much of the country's WEEE ends up in landfill, where the lead and other toxins it contains can cause soil and water contamination. This can have a harmful effect on natural habitat, wildlife and also human health. Many electrical items that we throw away can be repaired or recycled. Recycling items helps to save our natural finite resources and also reduces the environmental and health risks associated with sending electrical goods to landfill.
Householders should be aware of the "crossed out wheeled bin symbol" which is printed on products or packaging as shown below. All new electrical and electronic equipment is marked with this symbol in order to encourage customers to recycle old unwanted electrical and electronic goods rather than disposing of them along with general household waste, thereby reducing the impact on the environment.
