5. Goods provided
The Products include but are not limited to the following:
5.1 Pre-Selected Magazine Pack: this comprises a preset amount and type of magazines depending on which pack you select. Magazines are selected by DLT to suit your business type. From time to time DLT reserve the right to add new titles and withdraw existing titles without prior notice to You.
5.2 Custom Magazine Packs:
these provide You with the opportunity to select your specific magazine subscriptions from a pool of available titles up to a quantity of 8, 12, 18 or 24 magazines. Magazines selected by You are ordered as subscriptions sold through DLT and accordingly your subscription is with DLT rather than the magazine publisher.
5.3 DLT do not supply cover mounts or free gifts that may accompany magazines from time to time. At your request DLT will pass your details onto the publisher who at their discretion may forward any such items to You.
5.4 DLT may also supply magazine supplements, magazine protectors, magazine racks and coffee. Our current Product range appears on the Site.
6. Price and payment
6.1 The price of any Products will be as quoted on the Site from time to time, except in cases of obvious error. If the error could reasonably have been recognised by You as a mispricing, we may end Your Contract, refund to You any amounts You have paid and require the return of any Products you have received. Please see paragraphs 6.6 and 6.7 below.
6.2 Payment may be made in advance by credit/debit card, BACS or cheque. Alternatively you can pay on invoice or DLT can arrange to collect the amount due by Direct Debit either quarterly or monthly at no extra charge to You.

If this happens DLT will notify You accordingly within a reasonable time. Where a magazine’s correct price is less than our stated price, DLT will charge the lower amount when dispatching the magazines to You. If a magazine’s correct price is higher than the price stated on our Site, DLT will normally, at our discretion, either contact You for instructions before dispatching the magazines, or reject your order and notify You of such rejection.
6.7 DLT are under no obligation to provide the magazines to You at the incorrect (lower) price, even after DLT have sent you an Acceptance Confirmation, if the pricing error is obvious and unmistakable and could have reasonably been recognised by You as a mis-pricing.

7.2 VAT registered customers in European Union member states other than the United Kingdom must submit their VAT numbers to DLT for inclusion by DLT on their invoices for the purposes of zero-rated intra-community supplies of goods.
