T&Cs can seem very complicated and one suspects that there may be catches in it for you, the buyer.  When writing our T&Cs, we tried to think like you (the buyer) so that our T&Cs are clear, concise and transparent. 

Security

Orders are fully encrypted before being sent to us via a secure server. The transfer of purchase details from the Friendly Fire and Safety website to SagePay is encapsulated using SagePay's own encrypted and digitally-signed protocol.

Any communication between the buyer and SagePay is encrypted to the maximum strength supported by the purchaser’s browser using 128 Bit encrypted sessions. Purchasers are also protected from fraudulent use of their card in a "cardholder not present" environment by their card issuers. The card issuers provide the right for shopper to dispute a transaction if the goods/services did not arrive or if the card was used fraudulently.

Choosing the Right Products

Photographs are intended to be as representative as possible. Computer monitor resolution may affect colour interpretation. It will be the buyer’s responsibility to ensure that products are suitable for their purpose before placing an order. We have approved suppliers of products who are subject to change due to reasons such as new products, better quality products and provision of alternatives.  As such, brand of product may vary from the pictures you may see on our website. If the buyer is unsure about the appropriateness of goods, they must discuss their requirements with Friendly Fire and Safety before ordering.

Friendlyfireandsafety.com will always endeavour to give you the best possible advice however, the responsibility for ensuring that you are adhering to fire safety legislation, building regulations, other regulations or best practice remains with you. There is regulation with regards to the maintenance of many fire safety products. Fire extinguishers, for example, must be serviced every 12 months. You are responsible for setting up any service and maintenance programmes required for your products purchased from us. Please note that all mains-powered electrical fire safety equipment must be installed by trained electricians.
