Phoenix Hearing Instruments reserves the right to decline to trade with any company or person. Orders can only be modified, suspended or cancelled with prior approval and the customer must pay any expenses relating to the modification or cancellation of an order. Non-standard items are classified as indent items and require an irrevocable order. Products are constantly under review and Phoenix Hearing Instruments reserves the right to discontinue any product or change its design at any time. Phoenix will not be liable in any circumstances for a failure to supply any product ordered by a customer. The customer must inspect the goods as soon as it is reasonably possible after delivery and Phoenix Hearing Instruments shall not be liable for any shortage in delivery unless notice is given to Phoenix Hearing Instruments within 7 days of delivery.

Goods not in stock at the time of receipt of the order will be automatically placed on backorder, unless otherwise requested.

Phoenix Hearing Instruments will not accept any cancellation of orders unless by prior agreement and then only upon terms which will compensate Phoenix Hearing Instruments for the cost of the cancellation. Restocking fees may therefore apply.

The title of goods shall only pass to the customer following full payment of the relevant Phoenix Hearing Instruments invoice. Phoenix Hearing Instruments retains ownership of these goods and reserves the right to reclaim these goods from the customer's premises if the invoice(s) is/are not paid within the terms of this contract. The customer will be responsible to pay all expenses incurred by Phoenix Hearing Instruments associated with the recovery of goods.

The customer MUST contact Phoenix Hearing Instruments prior to returning any products. A Return Authorisation will be issued in approved cases and details including the original invoice number and date of purchase must be supplied by the customer. Any product that is returned must be received by Phoenix Hearing Instruments within 7 days of the original delivery, and must be unmarked, undamaged, unaltered and in the original packaging. Certain products are excluded from the right of return and may not be returned under any circumstances e.g. special orders, customised stock items.

Phoenix Hearing Instruments reserves the right to waive or amend specific warranty on individual products. Phoenix Hearing Instruments shall not be liable for defective goods if the defect arises because the customer has allowed repair or alteration of the goods without the written consent of Phoenix Hearing Instruments or has subjected the goods to conditions outside the manufacturer's stated instructions on storage, usage, installation or maintenance.
