Terms & Conditions
Welcome to the Sitec ESP Terms and Conditions.
These terms and conditions apply to any products and services that you may purchase from us.
Please read all of these terms and conditions carefully before you order any products from our website because by ordering any of our products, you agree to be bound by them. If you accept these terms and conditions, please tick the box during the checkout process to show that you have read and agreed to them. Please understand that if you do not accept these terms and conditions, you will not be able to order any products from our website.
1. Our website
1.1. The Sitec ESP brand and www.sitecesp.com website are wholly owned and operated by Sitec ESP Limited of 70 Gracechurch Street, London EC3V 0HR, United Kingdom, registered in the UK with company registration number 11147820.
2.1. If you want to order any products from our website then you will need to provide us with certain details.
2.2. You will be asked to enter information such as your name, address, email address and telephone number. You are responsible for ensuring that all of the information you provide to us is true and accurate.
2.3. In providing our services and supplying our products, we may share your private information with outside parties, necessary in fulfilling your orders.
3. How is the contract formed between you and us?
3.1. The technical steps required to create a contract between you and us are as follows:
- You will be guided through the ‘checkout’ process by a series of instructions. If you want to correct any errors you have made, you can do so by clicking the ‘back’ button.
- You place the order on our website by finalising payment via the payment gateway presented at the end of the ‘checkout’ process.
- We will send you an email to acknowledge that we have received your order. This is not an order confirmation or acceptance of your order because we will have to carry out stock and identity checks first.
- Finally, we will then send you an email to confirm that your order has been dispatched to you (if you have chosen to have your products delivered to you and it is not a ‘direct delivery’ product). At this point, your order has been accepted by us and the contract is formed between you and us (unless we have notified you that we do not accept your order or you have cancelled it – please see Cancellations below).
3.2. Because products may not all be stored by us at the same location, we may sometimes not be able to deliver them all for you at the same time so don’t worry if your delivery seems to be incomplete. You will still only be charged one delivery charge though. If you have any queries about your order or worry that it may be incomplete, then please contact Customer Services.
3.3. The contract will be concluded in English.
3.4. The details of your contract will be held by us. If you have a registered account with us and require any information about orders you have placed with us, you can log-in to your account here. Otherwise, please contact Customer Services.
4.1. Payment for goods and services may be made using major credit/debit cards or via direct bank transfer.
4.2. All payments for orders must be received in full during order placement.
5.1. We will do our best to try and deliver the products to you in accordance with the timescales set out in your dispatch confirmation email. However, we cannot always guarantee that we will meet these dates due to factors beyond our reasonable control.
5.2. We will deliver the order to you at the delivery address you entered during order placement.
5.3. Please note that we will deliver to the threshold of the building, but you will be required to carry the objects into the property so please ensure that there will be someone at the delivery address who will be able to do this.
5.4. If you provide us with an incorrect delivery address and your order is signed for by someone else as a result, we cannot be responsible for any loss you incur as a result so please ensure that you have entered all your details correctly.
5.5. Where the order was returned because we failed to meet the due date and/or time for delivery, then we will redeliver the order to you at no additional cost. In all other cases, you will be required to pay any additional delivery charges we incur in the order being returned to us and then redelivered to you.

6.2. The price of the products and our delivery charges will be as quoted on our website from time to time.

6.4. Our website contains a large number of products and it is always possible that, despite our best efforts, some of the products listed on our website may be incorrectly priced. Where we recognise that we have charged the incorrect price, we will contact you to see what you want to do. 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 goods to you at the incorrect lower price.
6.5. Payments will be taken immediately on order. Payment for all products must be made by one of the methods offered.
7. Discounts and offers
7.1. We may run special offers and/or discounts on our website from time to time at our discretion.
