Terms & Conditions
Terms of Sale
Please read these terms of sale carefully as you will be legally bound by these terms should you agree to them when ordering through our website.
You will be asked to expressly agree to these terms of sale before you can place any order for products from this website.
In these terms of sale, “we” means Auto-Click (and “us” and “our” will be construed accordingly); and “you” means our customer or potential customer for products (and “your” will be construed accordingly).
(3) Order process
The advertising of products on our website constitutes an “invitation to treat”; and your order for products constitutes a contractual offer. No contract will come into force between you and us unless and until we accept your order in accordance with the procedure detailed below.
In order to enter into a contract to purchase products from us, you will need to take the following steps:
We will not file a copy of these terms of sale specifically in relation to your order. We may update the version of these terms of sale on the website from time to time, and we do not guarantee that the version you have agreed to will remain accessible. We therefore recommend that you download, print and retain a copy of these terms of sale for your records.
The only language in which we provide these terms of sale is English.
Before you place your order, you will have the opportunity of identifying whether you have made any input errors by confirming the final details at the final stage of the checkout process. You may correct those input errors before placing your order by selecting the back button to correct any errors.
(4) The products
The products offered are as the item description shown on the relevant product page.
Images are for reference only. Colours are indicative but are not guaranteed due to Manufacture date, design changes, and product updates.
You agree (unless explicitly requested at checkout) to the substitute of any product/s which are either obsolete, depleted, out of stock due to unusual world wide demand or other sourcing issues beyond our control (including Covid-19 restrictions). This may on occasion include pattern and/or replacement parts.
Any terminals, pins, sockets, TPAs, wedge locks, seals, or any other such part excluding the housing, are supplied gratis (completely free of charge), and may not be original parts by the housing manufacturer unless explicitly stated on the product page. Parts supplied in addition to the housing FOC do not form part of the sale, do not come with any warranty, and will be supplied based on our current stock. Terminal size or part number may not be specified. Original and specific parts are available to buy separately for additional cost if required.
If any part/s of any order is/are not in stock, you agree to receive a partial delivery of any order for which any part is out of stock or put on to back order. If any part is unlikely to come in to stock within 14 days, we will refund the amount for such part/s and deliver the remainder of the order.
Any claim for shortage, damage or incorrect supply must be made to us in writing by email within 72hrs from the date of delivery.
Any claim under quality issues must be made in writing by email within 30 days of delivery.
Any claim made outside of this time will not be valid.

In addition to the price of the products, you [will/may] have to pay a delivery charge, which will be as stated when you pay for the product.
