6. MISCELLANEOUS

The goods we sell are of a technical nature and are continuously evolving and improving. Whilst we endeavour to publish as much up to date information as is practical about the goods, manufacturers and suppliers may change details such as ticking’s, fabric, materials, finishes, fillings, colours, fibres and dies without giving any prior notice. Therefore all images and descriptions are for giving an approximate idea of the goods only at that time. The Sleep Group endeavours to keep all images and descriptions accurate and up to date but cannot be held responsible for any inaccuracies which may occur.

We shall not be liable to you for any failure or delay in performance of our contract. If it is due to an event beyond our reasonable control including, without limitation, acts of God, war, industrial dispute, fire, flood, tempest and national emergencies and if so delayed we shall be entitled to a reasonable extension of time for performing such obligations.

These terms are subject to English law and the parties agree to submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of the English Courts.
