Our record of any order placed by you verbally shall be conclusive as to the type and quantity of produce and the point and date of delivery.

All goods are offered subject to their being available upon receipt of order.
3. Delivery. Unless otherwise specified the price includes delivery to any premises specified by you within our direct transport local delivery area, full details of which are available on request. The risk in all goods passes to you when they first enter those premises or are placed in store under clause 5. We reserve the right to choose the method of transport, to charge for deliveries outside our direct transport area and to charge you with all manufacturers’ carriage charges for special items. Delivery times are approximate and we will at all times use our best endeavours to comply.

The Data Protection Policy employed by MH Electrical Distributors Limited has been developed as an extension of our commitment to combine the finest quality services with the highest level of integrity in dealing with our clients, suppliers, associates and staff. The Policy guides how we collect store and use information about individuals and organisations. It will be continuously assessed against new technologies, business practices and the changing needs of everyone we deal with.
Our Data Protection Policy recognises two kinds of personal data that deserve different levels of protection:
Personally Identifiable Information includes, for example, e-mail addresses, billing information, employment status and 'click stream' data that tracks visitor activity on a Web site or online service.
A subset of that category, Sensitive Data, deserves additional safeguards. Sensitive Data includes, by way of example, Clients' confidential data, individuals' home telephone numbers, Bank Account, Income Tax and National Insurance numbers, interview notes, CV's, etc. If your relationship with us includes providing MH Electrical Distributors Limited with Sensitive Data, we will protect that information with extra care. We will not distribute Sensitive Data outside of MH Electrical Distributors Limited, if you so request, and will give you the chance to opt out of sharing this information within our own organisation.
MH Electrical Distributors Limited collects Personally-Identifiable Information and Sensitive Data only when there is a legitimate business need to do so.

Our Privacy Policy provides the following:

Notice: We will inform you about why we are collecting Personally-Identifiable Information and how we intend to use it. We need to collect and store your name, address, and other basic Personally-Identifiable Information, for example, to provide you with the service you requested, as well as for billing purposes.
Opt Out: From time to time, companies and organisations that have a product or service that we believe may be of interest to you approach us, we may share your Personally-Identifiable Information with these companies in an effort to help you find these resources. We will, however, always gain your permission before disclosing Personally-Identifiable Information to third parties that are not affiliated to MH Electrical Distributors Limited;
Security: We will maintain appropriate safeguards to ensure the security, integrity and privacy of your Personally-Identifiable Information;
Review and Correction: We are continuing to enhance our procedures to enable you to review and correct, upon request, the Personally-Identifiable Information we collect from you. Currently, we need you to make such a request in a manner that can be verified;
MH Electrical Distributors Limited will not sell personal data in any form, including mailing lists. All its data are for internal use only:
MH Electrical Distributors Limited will continue to oversee implementation of and compliance with our Policy and will adapt the Policy to reflect changes in technology and the expectations of everyone we deal with. To ensure that we are following our stated Policy, we also conduct periodic and random audits of our Web sites and other systems.
MH Electrical Distributors Limited Data Protection Policy has been developed out of respect for the privacy preferences and choices of our candidates, suppliers, customers, associates and staff. We have established procedures to ensure that every reasonable effort is made to address your concerns. If you have any questions or comments on MH Electrical Distributors Limited and its data protection policy please contact one of our Directors.
