You're wrong.

CIC is not offering to contract with you.
They are inviting you to treat.
You then offered a contract to them, which they declined.

CIC displayed an invitation to treat.
You offered CIC an offer to contract.
They declined your offer; i.e no acceptance.
No contract.

Simple.


In fact, so simple, its even on Al Gore's internet;
Quote:
An invitation to treat is an action inviting other parties to make an offer to form a contract.
These actions may sometimes appear to be offers themselves, and the difference can sometimes
be difficult to determine. The distinction is important because accepting an offer creates a binding
contract while "accepting" an invitation to treat is actually making an offer.



EDIT

Oooops ... I just remembered; you have a law degree.
So you already know all this!
Wasn't my intention to teach your grandmother how to suck eggs ...
