PART 2: TERMS OF SALE
- Ordering Products
7.1. You must be at least 18 years old to place an order for Products via the Website (an "Order").
7.2. In order to submit an Order via the Website you can either proceed as a guest or you can register an Account and then follow the procedure set out on the Website to submit your Order. You should check all of the information that you enter and correct any errors before submitting your Order, as once your Order is submitted we will begin processing it immediately.
7.3. Your Order constitutes an offer to us. We will confirm our acceptance of your Order by sending you an email confirming the information you included in your Order and providing a delivery estimate (the "Confirmation Email"). These Terms and Conditions and the Order will become legally binding on you and us when we send you the Confirmation Email and each Order shall incorporate the Terms and Conditions and shall be a new and separate Contract between you and us.
7.4. In the event that we have overbooked or misplaced any Products or we discover any Products are faulty prior to despatching them and are therefore unable to fulfil your Order, we will notify you immediately and refund you the full amount.
8.1. The costs of delivery will be as displayed to you on the Website.
8.2. We will provide you with a delivery period during the Order process, and will confirm such delivery period in the Confirmation Email.
8.3. If our supply of the Products is delayed by an event outside our control then we will contact you as soon as possible to let you know and we will take steps to minimise the effect of the delay.
8.4. If no one is available at your address to take delivery of the Products, we will leave you a note informing you of how to rearrange delivery or collect the Products from a local depot.
8.5. If you do not collect the Products from us as arranged or if, after a failed delivery to you, you do not re-arrange delivery or collect them from a delivery depot we will contact you for further instructions. If, despite our reasonable efforts, we are unable to contact you or re-arrange delivery or collection we may end the Contract and clause 13.2 will apply.
8.6. You have legal rights if we deliver the Products late. If we miss the delivery deadline for any Products then you may treat the Contract as at an end straight away if any of the following apply:
8.6.1. we have refused to deliver the Products;
8.6.2. delivery within the delivery deadline was essential (taking into account all the relevant circumstances); or
8.6.3. you told us before we accepted your Order that delivery within the delivery deadline was essential.
8.7 If you do not wish to treat the Contract as at an end straight away, or do not have the right to do so under clause 8.6, you can give us a new deadline for delivery, which must be reasonable, and you can treat the Contract as at an end if we do not meet the new deadline.
8.8 If you do choose to treat the Contract as at an end for late delivery under clause 8.6 or clause 8.7, you can cancel your Order for any of the Products or reject Products that have been delivered. If you wish, you can reject or cancel the Order for some of those Products (not all of them), unless splitting them up would significantly reduce their value. After that we will refund any sums you have paid to us for the cancelled Products and their delivery. If the Products have been delivered to you, you must either post them back to us or (if they are not suitable for posting) allow us to collect them from you. We will pay the costs of postage or collection. Please contact us using the details set out in clause 17 for a return label or to arrange collection.
8.9 A Product will be your responsibility from the time we deliver the Product to the address you gave us. You own a Product once we have received payment in full.
9.1. The prices for the Products and delivery are set out on the Website and are inclusive of VAT (if applicable).
9.2. It is always possible that, despite our best efforts, some of the Products may be incorrectly priced. We will normally check prices before accepting your Order so that, where a Product's correct price at the time of your Order is less than our stated price at that time, we will charge the lower amount. If the Product's correct price at the time of your Order is higher than the price stated to you, 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 mispricing, we may end the Contract and refund you any sums you have paid.
9.3. If your payment is not authorised, your Order will not be fulfilled.
- Cancellation and refunds
Cancellation/changes to an Order
10.1. You have a legal right to change your mind and cancel the Contract between you and us within 14 days of delivery of your Products without giving a reason. This right, under the Consumer Contracts (Information, Cancellation and Charges) Regulations 2013, is explained in more detail below. Please note that the right to change your mind does not apply to any bespoke Products you purchase from us (i.e. Products that we create to your specification or are clearly personalised).
10.2. The cancellation period will expire 14 days from the day on which you acquire, or a third party other than the carrier and indicated by you acquires, physical possession of the Products. You may cancel the Contract in respect of all Products delivered or in respect of certain of the Products only. Where you order multiple Products in one order or a Product is delivered in separate parts, lots or pieces, the cancellation period will expire 14 days from the day on which you acquire, or a third party other than the carrier and indicated by you acquires, physical possession of the last Product, part, lot or piece that makes up your Order.
To exercise the right to cancel, you must inform us of your decision to cancel the Contract with us by making a clear statement (e.g. a letter sent by post or email). The easiest way to do this is to contact our Customer Services team, their contact details can be found in clause 17.
