Unless otherwise specified, for all orders for delivery outside the United Kingdom:

7.3 Items are offered subject to them being in stock at the date of receipt of the Customer’s order. Camlab will endeavour to adhere to delivery dates however, time for delivery shall not be of the essence, and shall not be capable of being made of the essence by notice. Failure to meet quoted or expected delivery dates shall not entitle the Customer to make a claim against Camlab for loss.

7.7 Any liability of Camlab for non-delivery of the goods shall be limited to replacing the goods within a reasonable time or issuing a credit note against any invoice raised for such goods.
