5. How the contract is formed between you and us
5.1 To book a Scan, please call on us the number provided on our Contact Us page [Contact Us]. If we can accommodate your request, a deposit of £20 will be charged to your debit or credit charge at the time of booking (Deposit). The Deposit is non-refundable, except as provided in sub-clause 7.3 below. Once we are in receipt of the Deposit, we will provide you with a date and time for your Scan (Appointment). Payment of the balance of the cost of the Scan (Price) will become due and payable in accordance with clause 6.3 below when the Scan has been completed.
5.2 We will confirm your Appointment to you in writing, either by post or by email (Appointment Confirmation). The Appointment Confirmation will contain details of your Appointment and any preparation that we require you to take in advance of your Scan. Failure to follow the instructions may result in cancellation of your Appointment or additional costs being charged
5.3 When you arrive at our Premises for your Scan, you will be asked to read and confirm your acceptance to these Terms, and read and sign our Consent Form, a copy of which is in the Schedule to these Terms. You must sign the Consent Form before we will carry out the Scan.
5.4 Subject to sub-clause 5.5 below, the Contract between us will only be formed when we have received from you a signed and dated copy of both these Terms and the Consent Form.
5.5 In the event that you are 16 years or under at the date of the Appointment, you will need to attend the Appointment with a parent or guardian. The Contract between us will only be formed when we have received from you copies of both these Terms and the Consent Form signed and dated by both you and your parent or guardian.
5.6 We intend to rely upon these Terms and any document expressly referred to in them in relation to the Contract between you and us. Any variations from these Terms will not be valid unless confirmed in writing by us.
6. Price and Payment Terms
6.1 The Price of our Scans will be as quoted on our site from time to time. We take all reasonable care to ensure that the Prices quoted on our site are correct at the time when the relevant information was entered onto the system. However if we discover an error in the Prices, please see sub-clause 6.6 for what happens in this event.
6.2 The Price of a Scan includes a paper report and printed thermal black and white images. DVDs, CDs and USB containing the documents or images are included in the price and will be charged separately if required (unless it is applicable to your package).
6.3 An invoice will be provided to you before completion of the Scan detailing the Price due and payable by you in respect of the Scan. You shall pay in full the amount specified in any such invoice supplied by us at the time.
6.4 Our Prices may change from time to time, but changes will not affect any Price which we have already confirmed with an Appointment Confirmation.
6.5 The Prices include VAT (where applicable) at the applicable current rate chargeable in the UK for the time being.

If we discover an error in the Prices, we will inform you of this error and we will give you the option of continuing to book the Scan at the correct price. Please note that if the pricing error is obvious and unmistakeable and could have reasonably been recognised by you as a mispricing, we do not have to provide the Scan to you at the incorrect (lower) price.
7. Cancellation and refunds
7.1 In the event that you are unable to make the Appointment (or in specific cases of foetal position compromise), we may, but shall not be obliged to, offer you an alternative date and/or time for a Scan (or rescan, in cases of foetal position compromise), depending on our availability at the time.

13.4 Each of the paragraphs of these Terms operates separately. If any court or relevant authority decides that any of them are unlawful or unenforceable, the remaining paragraphs will remain in full force and effect.
13.5 If we fail to insist that you perform any of your obligations under these Terms, or if we do not enforce our rights against you, or if we delay in doing so, that will not mean that we have waived our rights against you and will not mean that you do not have to comply with those obligations. If we do waive a default by you, we will only do so in writing, and that will not mean that we will automatically waive any later default by you.
13.6 These Terms are governed by English law. This means that a Contract, and any dispute or claim arising out of or in connection with it will be governed by English law. You and we both agree to that the courts of England and Wales will have non-exclusive jurisdiction.
