Liability, Payment and Warranty Terms

Terms & Conditions:

The “Stop That Thief” program is delivered by Westhere Ltd and supported by West Mercia Police and the National Farmers Union. The role of Westhere Ltd is to source and install quality and effective security equipment at a cost-effective price. The systems are designed to be self-monitored, eliminating the need for central monitoring and annual service contracts. The system owner assumes the responsibility of regular system testing and replacement of sensor batteries where used in PIR’s, door contacts and other devices.

Acceptance of a Stop That Thief quote by return e-mail or verbally means you are agreeing to adhere to our terms and conditions which are detailed below:

Liability:  Westhere Ltd nor any other associated company connected too or working on behalf of Westhere Ltd cannot be held liable for losses due to theft or damage after the security equipment has been installed. All systems are designed to be self-monitored. The system owner assumes the responsibility of regular system testing and replacement of sensor batteries where used in PIR’s, door contacts and other devices. Regular testing is required to ensure that the system is functioning correctly, and it is recommended that a test log is maintained for future reference.

Try Before You Buy:  The Stop That Thief program operates an equipment only 21 day try before you buy scheme which includes alarm panels and linked intruder detection devices only, this is to ensure you are entirely happy with the equipment installed before full payment is made. In the event that you wish to have the equipment removed for any reason, please contact us directly within the 21-day period, and it will be removed at no cost. No liability will be accepted for the restoration of holes and associated damage caused as a resulted of the initial installation. Please note that installation charges are NOT part of the “Stop that thief” try before you buy scheme, therefore should you wish to return all or part of the equipment because it does not meet your expectations you will remain liable for the quoted installation cost. Please note that all CCTV and lighting equipment is NOT part of the “Stop that thief” try before you buy scheme and cannot be returned if it does not meet your expectations. If you are concerned or unclear about any aspect of your CCTV or lighting equipment or installation, then please clarify this with the installation engineer before installation commences so that they can demonstrate the equipment and confirm its location prior to installation.

Payment Terms:  Upon completion of the installation, Westhere Ltd will raise an invoice for the full amount which is payable in full within 21 days of the installation. You will not be entitled, due to any alleged minor defect, to withhold more than a proportionate amount of the outstanding balance. If you elect to withhold any amount after the due date because of any alleged defect you must give Westhere Ltd notice in writing before the final date on which payment is due and, in that notice, you must state the reasons you are withholding the payment.
