2. About SODA
SODA stands for School of the Digital Age, and SODA is the trading name of Broadwalk Limited, a company incorporated in the United Kingdom (company number 10458381), with its registered office at 9th Floor, 107 Cheapside, London, United Kingdom, EC2V 6DN (‘SODA’).
3. The Services and the SODA Market Place
SODA operates the Website as a digital retailer and marketplace via which Products [and services] are promoted by SODA and carefully selected Vendors.
The services SODA offers allow you to search through the Website and facilitates the Order of Products [and services] from us and other Third Party Vendors.
When you purchase Products via the Website you are purchasing them either from
SODA or from another Vendor, being a Third Party Vendor. If the seller is another
Vendor than SODA this will be clearly identified on the Website and the identity of the Vendor is [shown on the order confirmation page when you place an order].
SODA is authorised by the Third Party Vendors to conclude Contracts for Sale on their behalf but SODA is not a party to a Contract for Sale unless you are purchasing the Products from SODA directly. SODA is authorised to act as the agent of the Third Party Vendors (who act as principals) to conclude and enter into the Contract for Sale with you. This means that unless you are purchasing a Product directly from SODA it is the Third Party Vendor, not SODA, who is legally responsible for selling the Product to you.
SODA also provides some ancillary services such as providing you with customer service assistance and payment processing (acting by its payment processor) on behalf of the Vendors.
Your Order for Products is subject to these Terms and Conditions and they are
incorporated into the Contract for Sale between you and the relevant Vendor.
The identity of the Vendor is shown on the product listing page of the product(s) for purchase.
Images of Products on the Website are for illustrative purposes only and the actual Products may vary from the pictures or descriptions displayed on the Website. Although SODA tries to make sure images and descriptions are accurate it is possible that they may not be completely accurate. We recommend you read labels, warnings, and other directions before Product use and that you do not rely solely on the information presented on the Website.
As a consumer, you have legal rights in relation to Products for example if they are faulty or not as described. Nothing in these Terms and Conditions will affect these legal rights. In SODA’s agreements with suppliers and Third Party Vendors SODA requires that the Products comply with applicable UK laws and regulations.
5. Ordering products & services through the Website
By completing the check-out process and submitting an order by clicking the ‘Place Order’ button on the checkout page you are offering to purchase the Product [or service] from the relevant Vendor (which could be SODA or a Third Party Vendor). By submitting the Order and providing your payment card details you authorise SODA (acting by its payment processor) to charge the relevant account to take payment for your Order on behalf of the relevant Vendor. Neither SODA nor the relevant Vendor will be responsible for any losses you may suffer if the payment method you use to pay for an Order if you do not have sufficient funds to cover all costs of that Order.
All Orders are subject to availability and confirmation, which is determined by the
relevant Vendor. When you place an Order, you will receive an acknowledgement
message from SODA confirming receipt of your Order with relevant details. This
acknowledgement email is only an acknowledgement that your Order has been received and it does not constitute acceptance of your offer to buy the Products or services Ordered. Your offer is accepted and Contract for Sale is formed, only when SODA sends you a dispatch confirmation email to notify you that the Vendor has accepted your Order and dispatched the Product. Only those Products listed in the dispatch confirmation email are included in the Contract for Sale between you and the Vendor.
[In case of purchase of services the Order will be considered accepted when we send a confirmation email to your registered email address for providing such services.]
The Vendor reserve the right not to accept your order if, for example, the Product
Ordered is out of stock, has been withdrawn or is otherwise not available, or if SODA is unable to obtain authorisation for your payment or if you do not meet the eligibility criteria (e.g. you are under 18).
The acknowledgement email and the dispatch confirmation email will be sent to the email address associated with your Account or, if you check-out as a ‘guest’, to the email address entered during the checkout process.
