This confirmation e-mail amounts to an acceptance by BCSA of your offer to buy goods from www.steelconstruction.org.
4. This confirmatory e-mail will contain all relevant information concerning your order.

27. BCSA may amend these terms and conditions from time to time, and place the new version on the web-site. When BCSA does so, BCSA will mention the fact on its home page (www.steelconstruction.org).
