No contract exists between the purchaser (futhermore known as the “client”, “you”, “yourselves”, the “consumer”, the “customer”) and the supplier for the sale of any goods until the supplier has received and accepted your order.
An acceptance of your offer to buy the goods will be sent shortly after your order. However, we do have the right to terminate the contract in the event that the goods are unavailable, mis-priced or cleared funds are not received.
The contract is subject to your right of cancellation (see below).
We may change these terms of sale without notice to you in relation to future sales.
Orders & Deliveries
The goods you order will be delivered to the address registered as your payment address, except that deliveries are not made outside the United Kingdom.
We will inform you as quickly as possible if delivery cannot be made to your address for reasons under the suppliers control.
Prices quoted on our website are valid only for orders placed via our website. Quoted prices may be different on products offered via any of our retail stores.
Prices are checked regularly, however if we find the price has changed when we receive your order we will contact you and ask if you wish to proceed prior to the order being confirmed.
If you deliberately fail to take delivery of the goods (otherwise than by reason of circumstances under control of the Supplier) then without prejudice to any other right or remedy available to the Supplier , the Supplier may:
Store the goods until actual delivery and charge you for reasonable costs (including insurance) of storage; or
sell the goods at the best readily obtainable price and (after deducting all reasonable storage and selling expenses) account to you for any excess over the price you agreed to pay for the goods or charge you for any shortfall below the price you agreed to pay for the goods.
If you fail to take delivery because you have cancelled your contract under the Distance Selling Regulations we shall refund or re-credit you within 30 days for any sum that has been paid by you or debited from your credit card for the goods. On exercising your right to cancel you shall be required to return the goods to the Supplier. Should you fail to return the goods, the Supplier reserves the right to deduct any direct costs incurred by the Supplier in retrieving the goods as a result of such failure.
Dates and times of delivery are estimates only. DA Computers aim to ensure that all goods are delivered on time, however we do not accept liability for goods delivered on an unspecified day. We may also deliver the goods in several consignments but will not levy any additional delivery charges for this unless you are otherwise advised during your order.
We do not accept any liability for shortage of goods delivered, or damage to deliveries unless we are notified in writing within three working days of the goods being delivered.
Upon receipt of your order you will be asked to sign for the goods received in good condition. If the package does not appear to be in good condition then please refuse the delivery. If you are unable to check the contents of your delivery at the point of delivery then please sign for the parcel as "UNCHECKED". Failure to do so may affect any warranty claims that you make thereafter.

The goods are at your risk from the time of delivery.
Ownership of the goods shall not pass to you until the Supplier has received in full (in cash or cleared funds) all sums due to it in respect of:

Your right of cancellation
Non business customers have the right to cancel your order within 7 working days. If you wish to cancel your order you must do so in writing or by email within 7 working days of receiving the goods. The goods must be unopened and in the original packaging, with all the seals intact. All goods are inspected on arrival and refunds will not be issued if the goods are not in this condition. They must be in a re-saleable condition and must be returned to us at your expense. We will refund the total amount paid for the goods within 30 days of receiving the returned goods.
If you wish to return unwanted goods you must obtain a returns number (RMA) by completing our returns procedure. When we receive your completed form we will issue you with a returns number which you will receive by e-mail. Please note that packages arriving to us without a valid RMA number will be rejected or returned.
Except in the case of faulty or misdescribed goods, if you do not return the goods as required, we may charge you a sum not exceeding the direct costs of recovering the goods.
Proof of postage is not necessarily proof of delivery and you are therefore strongly advised to send your package by registered post or courier and to maintain sufficient insurance to cover the value of the goods. You must also take reasonable care to ensure the goods are not damaged in the meantime or in transit.
You do not have the right to cancel the contract if the order is for computer software which has been unsealed by you, for customised goods (such as custom built PC’s), or for consumable goods which, by their nature, cannot be returned, except where a fault is discovered which could not have been discovered otherwise than by unsealing the goods.
