a) an Agency Agreement for the supply of services (the "Agency Agreement") from the Company; and
b) a Supply Contract for the supply of the vehicle(s) and/or finance (the "Supply Contract") with the third party providing the vehicle and/or its finance (the "Third Party").
2. The Company will, on receipt of your signed Order Confirmation act on your behalf, as your agent, to source the vehicle(s) and/or finance for the vehicles as described in the "Vehicle Order Details" section of the order confirmation (the "Acceptance").

4. If you are contracting as a consumer and you would like a seven day cooling-off period to apply, you will need to specifically inform the Company in writing prior to or when you return the Order Confirmation (the "Notification"). Upon receiving the Notification, the Company will not begin the sourcing of any vehicle and/or finance until the expiry of the seven-day cooling-off period.
5. Please note that any results provided by the Search Service or in the Order Confirmation may be based on vehicle stock availability at the time. The Company cannot reserve or hold any vehicle if you request a cooling-off period and cannot guarantee the supply of the vehicle and/or finance on the rates stated in the Order Confirmation following the expiry of that cooling-off period.
6. If you send the Notification to the Company in accordance with clause 2.4 above, you will be entitled to cancel the Agency Agreement by following the procedure set out in clause 5 below.

3. Where the Company also provides the finance for the vehicle and enters into a Supply Contract with you, you will also be subject to the terms and conditions of our Supply Contract, which we will advise you of directly. In the event of any inconsistency between these terms and conditions and the terms and conditions of the Supply Contract, these terms and conditions will prevail to the extent that they apply.

3. You will not have the right to cancel the Agency Agreement once the Company has begun the provision of the services agreed under the Agency Agreement. The Company is likely to begin performing the services by searching for vehicles and/or finance to meet your requests as soon as it sends you the Acceptance.

1. The Company may terminate the Agency Agreement if any of the following occur:
a) you are unable to or do not accept delivery of the vehicle at your nominated address in the United Kingdom on the agreed date for delivery and you have failed to give the Company more than three working days notice that you are unable to accept delivery;
b) you fail to ensure that a new delivery date is agreed or that the vehicle is collected from the Company within fourteen days of the date that the Company notifies you that the vehicle is available for delivery;
c) you fail to pay the purchase price and any other sums due under the contract in full in accordance with these terms and conditions;
d) the Company reasonably believes in its sole discretion that the contract has been formed upon the basis of a genuine error (due to an administrative mistake) on the Company's website in relation to any term of the contract and the error is drawn to your attention; or
