The contract between us (Contract) will only be formed when we send you the Order Confirmation.
8.2 The Contract will relate only to those Products we have confirmed in the Order Confirmation. We will not be obliged to supply any other Products which may have been part of your order until we have confirmed acceptance of your order for those other Products within a separate ‘Confirmation of your order’.
9.1 Order cancellations are subject to BSH’s prior approval.
9.2 You must call Customer Service on 1300 369 744 and provide us with your order number, order date and full details of the order that is being cancelled.

10.4 Delivery is deemed to occur when the Products are unloaded at the buyer’s premises (or other premises agreed by the parties).
