2. About the British Council
2.1 The UK Charity operates in different countries through local branch and/or affiliated offices as well as locally incorporated subsidiaries (which together, including the UK Charity, are “British Council Entities”).
2.2 The Online Shop is run by the UK Charity but the Products are sold either by the UK Charity or another British Council Entity. The Online Shop will clearly indicate to you whether the UK Charity or another British Council Entity is selling the Product to you – the entity selling the Product will enter into the Contract with you for the supply of that Product and will be the “British Council” for the purposes of these Terms.
2.3 If both the UK Charity and another British Council Entity are selling Products to you then you will have one contract between you and the UK Charity (for the Products the UK Charity is selling) and another contract between you and the other British Council Entity (for the other Products). Both contracts will be on these Terms.
