3. Our contract with you
3.1 How we will accept your order. Our acceptance of your order will take place when we email you to accept it, at which point a contract will come into existence between you and us. Any quotation or estimate given by us to you does not constitute an offer to provide services or contract to you.
3.2 If we cannot accept your order. If we are unable to accept your order, we will inform you of this and will not charge you for the service. This might be because of unexpected limits on our resources which we could not reasonably plan for, because a credit reference we have obtained for you does not meet our minimum requirements, because we have identified an error in the price or description of the service or because we are unable to meet a delivery deadline you have specified.
3.3 Your order number. We will assign an order number to your order and tell you what it is when we accept your order. It will help us if you can tell us the order number whenever you contact us about your order.
3.4 We only sell to the UK. Our website is solely for the provision of our services in the UK. However, we do accept orders from addresses outside the UK. If you wish us to provide services outwith the UK, please e-mail us in the first instance at firstname.lastname@example.org before trying to place an order.
4. Our rights to make changes
4.1 Minor changes to the service. We may change the service:
(a)to reflect changes in relevant laws and regulatory requirements; and
(b)to implement minor technical adjustments and improvements, for example to address a security threat.
4.2 Updates to digital content. We may update or require you to update digital content, provided that the digital content shall always match the description of it that we provided to you before you bought it.
5. Your rights to end the contract
5.1 You can always end your contract with us. Your rights when you end the contract will depend on what you have bought, whether there is anything wrong with it, how we are performing and when you decide to end the contract:
(a)if you want to end the contract because of something we have done or have told you we are going to do, see clause 5.2;
(b)if you have just changed your mind about the service, see clause 5.3. You may be able to get a refund if you are within the cooling-off period, but this may be subject to deductions; and
(c)in all other cases (if we are not at fault and there is no right to change your mind), see clause 5.5.
5.2 Ending the contract because of something we have done or are going to do. If you are ending a contract for a reason set out at (a) to (e) below the contract will end immediately and we will refund you in full for any services which have not been provided and you may also be entitled to compensation. The reasons are:
(a)we have told you about an upcoming change to the service or these terms which you do not agree to;
(b)we have told you about an error in the price or description of the service you have ordered and you do not wish to proceed;
(c)there is a risk that supply of the services may be significantly delayed because of events outside our control;
(d)we have suspended supply of the services for technical reasons, or notify you we are going to suspend them for technical reasons, in each case for a period of more than 7 days; or
(e)you have a legal right to end the contract because of something we have done wrong.
5.3 When you don't have the right to change your mind. You do not have a right to change your mind in respect of:
(a)digital products after you have started to download or stream these; and
(b)services, once these have been completed, even if the cancellation period is still running;
5.4 How long do I have to change my mind? How long you have depends on what you have ordered and how it is delivered.
(a)Have you bought services (for example, photography, videography, aerial footage, measured survery, property or floor surveying), if so, you have 14 days after the day we email you to confirm we accept your order. However, once we have completed the services you cannot change your mind, even if the period is still running. If you cancel after we have started the services, you must pay us for the services provided up until the time you tell us that you have changed your mind.
(b)Have you bought digital content for download or streaming (for example, software), if so, you have 14 days after the day we email you to confirm we accept your order, or, if earlier, until you start downloading or streaming. If we delivered the digital content to you immediately, and you agreed to this when ordering, you will not have a right to change your mind.
5.5 Ending the contract where we are not at fault and there is no right to change your mind. Even if we are not at fault and you do not have a right to change your mind (see clause 5.1), you can still end the contract before it is completed. A contract for services is completed when we have finished providing the services and you have paid for them. If you want to end the contract in these circumstances, just contact us to let us know. The contract will not end until 1 calendar month after the day on which you contact us. We will refund any advance payment you have made for services which will not be provided to you. For example, if you tell us you want to end the contract on 4 February we will continue to supply the service until 3 March. We will only charge you for supplying the service up to 3 March and will refund any sums you have paid in advance for the supply of the service after 3 March.
6. How to end the contract with us (including if you have changed your mind)
6.1 Tell us you want to end the contract. To end the contract with us, please let us know by doing one of the following:
(a)Phone or email. Call customer services on 0131 357 2527 or email us at email@example.com. Please provide your name, home address, details of the order and, where available, your phone number and email address.

(c)By post. Write to us at 93 George Street, Edinburgh EH2 3ES notifying us that you wish to end the contract with us.
6.2 When we will pay the costs of return. We will pay the costs of return:
(a)if the services are misdescribed;
(b)if you are ending the contract because we have told you of an upcoming change to the service or these terms, an error in pricing or description, a delay due to events outside our control or because you have a legal right to do so as a result of something we have done wrong.
In all other circumstances (including where you are exercising your right to change your mind) you must pay the costs of return.
6.3 How we will refund you. We will refund you the price you paid for the services, by the method you used for payment. However, we may make deductions from the price, as described below.
Deductions from refunds. If you are exercising your right to change your mind, we may deduct from any refund an amount for the supply of the service for the period for which it was supplied, ending with the time when you told us you had changed your mind. The amount will be in proportion to what has been supplied, in comparison with the full coverage of the contract.
When your refund will be made. We will make any refunds due to you as soon as possible. If you are exercising your right to change your mind then your refund will be made within 14 days of your telling us you have changed your mind.
7. Our rights to end the contract
7.1 We may end the contract if you break it. We may end the contract for a service at any time by writing to you if:
(a)you do not make any payment to us when it is due and you still do not make payment within 7 days of us reminding you that payment is due;
(b)you do not, within a reasonable time of us asking for it, provide us with information that is necessary for us to provide the services, for example, the address of a property, the location of the keys (and how they can be obtained), alarm details, alarm codes and whether or not the owner of a property is to be present or in attendance;
(c)you do not, within a reasonable time, allow us to provide the services to you; or
(d)you do not, within a reasonable time, allow us access to your premises to supply the services.
7.2 You must compensate us if you break the contract. If we end the contract in the situations set out in clause 7.1, we will refund any money you have paid in advance for services we have not provided but we may deduct or charge reasonable compensation for the net costs we will incur as a result of your breaking the contract.
8. If there is a problem with the service
8.1 How to tell us about problems. If you have any questions or complaints about the services, please contact us. You can telephone us at 0131 357 2527 or write to us at firstname.lastname@example.org and 93 George Street, Edinburgh, EH2 3ES. Alternatively, please speak to one of our staff at our offices.
8.2 Summary of your legal rights. We are under a legal duty to supply services that are in conformity with this contract. See the box below for a summary of your key legal rights in relation to the services. Nothing in these terms will affect your legal rights.
Summary of your key legal rights
This is a summary of your key legal rights. These are subject to certain exceptions. For detailed information please visit the Citizens Advice website www.adviceguide.org.uk or call 03454 04 05 06.
If your product is digital content, for example a digital photograph, the Consumer Rights Act 2015 says digital content must be as described, fit for purpose and of satisfactory quality:
if your digital content is faulty, you're entitled to a repair or a replacement.
if the fault can't be fixed within a reasonable time, or without causing you significant inconvenience, you can get some or all of your money back
if you can show the fault has damaged your device and we haven't used reasonable care and skill, you may be entitled to a repair or compensation
If your product is services, for example floor planning or photography, the Consumer Rights Act 2015 says:
you can ask us to repeat or fix a service if it's not carried out with reasonable care and skill, or get some money back if we can't fix it.
if you haven't agreed a price upfront, what you're asked to pay must be reasonable.
if you haven't agreed a time upfront, it must be carried out within a reasonable time.
9. Price and payment
9.1 Where to find the price for the service. The price of the service (which includes VAT) will be the price indicated on the order pages when you placed your order. We take all reasonable care to ensure that the price of the service advised to you is correct. However, please see clause 9.3 for what happens if we discover an error in the price of the service you order.
9.2 We will pass on changes in the rate of VAT. If the rate of VAT changes between your order date and the date we supply the service, we will adjust the rate of VAT that you pay, unless you have already paid for the service in full before the change in the rate of VAT takes effect.
9.3 What happens if we got the price wrong. It is always possible that, despite our best efforts, some of the services we sell may be incorrectly priced. We will normally check prices before accepting your order so that, where the service's correct price at your order date is less than our stated price at your order date, we will charge the lower amount. If the service's correct price at your order date is higher than the price stated in our price list, we will contact you for your instructions before we accept your order. If we accept and process your order where a pricing error is obvious and unmistakeable and could reasonably have been recognised by you as a mis-pricing, we may end the contract and refund you any sums you have paid.
9.4 When you must pay and how you must pay. We accept payment with those credit and debit cards specified on our website when you place an order. When you must pay depends on what you are buying:
(a)For digital content, you must pay for the products before you download them. Please note that in the context of digital content we will provide to you (at the e-mail address provided by you for this purpose) a low resolution, watermarked slide show of the relevant digital content for examination purposes. On payment in full of all sums due to us, we will release to you (or your appointed representative or agent) the full marketing high resolution digital content.
(b)For services, we will invoice you for the balance of the price of the services when we have completed them. You must pay each invoice within 30 calendar days after the date of the invoice.
9.5 We can charge interest if you pay late. If you do not make any payment to us by the due date we may charge interest to you on the overdue amount at the rate of 5% a year above the base lending rate of The Royal Bank of Scotland from time to time. This interest shall accrue on a daily basis from the due date until the date of actual payment of the overdue amount, whether before or after judgment. You must pay us interest together with any overdue amount.
9.6 What to do if you think an invoice is wrong. If you think an invoice is wrong please contact us promptly to let us know and we will not charge you interest until we have resolved the issue.
10. Our responsibility for loss or damage suffered by you
10.1 We are responsible to you for foreseeable loss and damage caused by us. If we fail to comply with these terms, we are responsible for loss or damage you suffer that is a foreseeable result of our breaking this contract or our failing to use reasonable care and skill, but we are not responsible for any loss or damage that is not foreseeable. Loss or damage is foreseeable if either it is obvious that it will happen or if, at the time the contract was made, both we and you knew it might happen, for example, if you discussed it with us during the sales process. Please note that we will not be liable to you if the information that you provide to us is incorrect, inaccurate or incomplete in any way.
10.2 When we are liable for damage to your property. If we are providing services in your property, we will make good any damage to your property caused by us while doing so. However, we are not responsible for the cost of repairing any pre-existing faults or damage to your property that we discover while providing the services.
10.3 If defective digital content which we have supplied damages a device or digital content belonging to you and this is caused by our failure to use reasonable care and skill we will either repair the damage or pay you compensation. However, we will not be liable for damage which you could have avoided by following our advice to apply an update offered to you free of charge or for damage which was caused by you failing to correctly follow installation instructions or to have in place the minimum system requirements advised by us.
10.4 We are not liable for business losses. We only supply the services for domestic and private use. If you use the services for any commercial, business or re-sale purpose we will have no liability to you for any loss of profit, loss of business, business interruption, or loss of business opportunity (in each case whether direct or indirect).
10.5 With regard to the keys to an alarm located at a property at which we have been asked to provide services, whilst we will take reasonable care regarding the use of such keys and/or setting and/or disabling any alarm or security device we will have no liability to you (other than in respect of providing a replacement key or lock which has been lost/broken on account of our negligence) in connection with:-
(a)lost or broken keys;
(b)broken or seized locks; and/or
(c)the operation of any alarms or security devices at such property and you acknowledge that our employee’s or consultant’s operation of such alarms and/or security devices is a matter of goodwill to assist you.
11. How we may use your personal information
12. Other important terms
12.1 We may transfer this agreement to someone else. We may transfer our rights and obligations under these terms to another organisation. We will always tell you in writing if this happens and we will ensure that the transfer will not affect your rights under the contract.
12.2 You need our consent to transfer your rights to someone else. You may only transfer your rights or your obligations under these terms to another person if we agree to this in writing.
12.3 Nobody else has any rights under this contract. This contract is between you and us. No other person shall have any rights to enforce any of its terms.
12.4 If a court finds part of this contract illegal, the rest will continue in force. Each of the paragraphs of these terms operates separately. If any court or relevant authority decides that any of them are unlawful, the remaining paragraphs will remain in full force and effect.
12.5 Even if we delay in enforcing this contract, we can still enforce it later. If we do not insist immediately that you do anything you are required to do under these terms, or if we delay in taking steps against you in respect of your breaking this contract, that will not mean that you do not have to do those things and it will not prevent us taking steps against you at a later date. For example, if you miss a payment and we do not chase you but we continue to provide the products, we can still require you to make the payment at a later date.
12.6 Which laws apply to this contract and where you may bring legal proceedings. These terms are governed by Scots law and you can bring legal proceedings in respect of the products in the Scottish courts.
13. Ownership of intellectual property
13.1 All intellectual property rights (including copyright) in or relating to any content, items, deliverables and all other output from the provision of the services or supply of content (including images, photographs, property or floor plans, surveys, video or digital content, movies, documents, computer code, method of operation, and any systems, procedures or products developed or created as a result of this Agreement) (“SquareFoot IPR”) shall belong to and upon its creation vest in SquareFoot.
13.2 You (and your agents) are entitled to a non-transferrable, non-sub licensable worldwide licence to use the SquareFoot IPR for the sole purpose of marketing and promotion of your property for sale or rent, or for the sole purpose of documenting and promoting work that you have carried out on a property that is not for sale or rent (including but not limited to interior design, architecture, building and construction works and property staging). This licence cannot be used for any other purpose whatsoever, save with our express prior written consent.
You (and your agents) are not entitled to:-
(a) transfer the licence to the purchaser or tenant of the relevant property or to any other party; or
(b) modify, edit, adapt, sell, licence or transfer any of the SquareFoot IPR (or any part thereof) or create any derivate works from the SquareFoot IPR, save to the extent expressly permitted by law.
Your licence will expire on the earlier of:-
(a)the date 12 months’ after the date on which the licence is granted; and
(b)the date of sale or rent of the relevant property or withdrawal of the relevant property from marketing for sale or rent.
13.3 From time to time, we may use the Squarefoot IPR (as it may determine) for marketing and promotional purposes (including using certain Squarefoot IPR on its website) without seeking your further consent.
13.4 You agree to sign such documents as may be necessary to ensure that we have ownership of the SquareFoot IPR.

5. Acceptable Use Policy
This acceptable use policy sets out the terms between you and us under which you may access our website: www.squarefootmedia.co.uk (“our site”). This acceptable use policy applies to all users of, and visitors to, our site.
Your use of our site means that you accept, and agree to abide by, all the policies in this acceptable use policy, which supplement our terms of website use.
www.squarefootmedia.co.uk is a site operated by 39MANSIONHOUSE LIMITED (trading as SquareFoot) (“we” or “us”). We are registered in Scotland under company number SC293024 and we have our registered office at 93 George Street, Edinburgh, EH2 3ES. Our VAT number is 873277493.
You may use our site only for lawful purposes. You may not use our site:
· In any way that breaches any applicable local, national or international law or regulation.
· In any way that is unlawful or fraudulent, or has any unlawful or fraudulent purpose or effect.
· For the purpose of harming or attempting to harm minors in any way.
· To send, knowingly receive, upload, download, use or re-use any material which does not comply with our content standards.
· To transmit, or procure the sending of, any unsolicited or unauthorised advertising or promotional material or any other form of similar solicitation (spam).
· To knowingly transmit any data, send or upload any material that contains viruses, Trojan horses, worms, time-bombs, keystroke loggers, spyware, adware or any other harmful programs or similar computer code designed to adversely affect the operation of any computer software or hardware.
You also agree:
· Not to reproduce, duplicate, copy or re-sell any part of our site in contravention of the provisions of our terms of website use.
· Not to access without authority, interfere with, damage or disrupt:
· any part of our site;
· any equipment or network on which our site is stored;
· any software used in the provision of our site; or
· any equipment or network or software owned or used by any third party.
We may from time to time provide interactive services on our site, including, without limitation:
· Chat rooms.
· Bulletin boards.
Where we do provide any interactive service, we will provide clear information to you about the kind of service offered, if it is moderated and what form of moderation is used (including whether it is human or technical).
We will do our best to assess any possible risks for users (and in particular, for children) from third parties when they use any interactive service provided on our site, and we will decide in each case whether it is appropriate to use moderation of the relevant service (including what kind of moderation to use) in the light of those risks. However, we are under no obligation to oversee, monitor or moderate any interactive service we provide on our site, and we expressly exclude our liability for any loss or damage arising from the use of any interactive service by a user in contravention of our content standards, whether the service is moderated or not.
The use of any of our interactive services by a minor is subject to the consent of their parent or guardian. We advise parents who permit their children to use an interactive service that it is important that they communicate with their children about their safety online, as moderation is not fool proof. Minors who are using any interactive service should be made aware of the potential risks to them.
Where we do moderate an interactive service, we will normally provide you with a means of contacting the moderator, should a concern or difficulty arise.
These content standards apply to any and all material which you contribute to our site (“contributions”), and to any interactive services associated with it.
You must comply with the spirit and the letter of the following standards. The standards apply to each part of any contribution as well as to its whole.
· Be accurate (where they state facts).
· Be genuinely held (where they state opinions).
· Comply with applicable law in the UK and in any country from which they are posted.
