The following terms and conditions of sale of 01DIRECT apply to all orders, sales and deliveries of its products that it sells in its sole capacity as distributor, via catalogue, promotional materials, website or telephone calls. The products sold by 01DIRECT are directed exclusively at clients acting in their professional capacity (hereafter referred to as the ‘Client’). Therefore, when placing an order with 01DIRECT, the Client agrees that he or she is acting as part of his or her professional activity and therefore is not regarded as a consumer as defined by UK consumer law, this being a crucial factor in entering into a contract with 01DIRECT.
2. Quotes and orders
Only written quotes are valid, and for the duration specified therein. Otherwise, the duration is 1 month. Orders can be placed online, by phone, mail or fax, with the company letterhead or stamp, or by email.

Product prices and service offers, applicable taxes, shipping fees and related fees are indicated on the invoice issued by ONEDIRECT. Unless there are specific contractual provisions, offers and price lists correspond to the prices valid at the time of designing the catalogue and website updates and are not binding beyond that point. Orders accepted are subject to price increases imposed on us by our own suppliers and circumstances beyond our control that would make delivery impossible or more costly.

This amount may be increased if the recovery fees exceed the amount of the late penalty.
