1.23 Please note that postage and packaging charges will be added to your purchase at the checkout. You will be notified of this charge prior to payment.
1.24 All online credit and debit card payments can be made using the secure online payment services. All prices on our website are inclusive of VAT. However, if the rate of VAT changes between the date of your order and the date of delivery, we will adjust the VAT you pay, unless you have already paid for the products in full before the change in VAT takes effect.
1.25 Every effort is made to ensure the pricing and availability displayed on the website is accurate. In the event of an error or if a product is no longer available or is out of stock, we will inform you of this by email and reserve the right to either cancel your order or contact you to make alternative arrangements. If you have already paid for the products, we will refund you the full amount including any delivery costs charged as soon as possible.
1.26 We also reserve the right to alter product pricing without notice, but changes will not affect any order you have already placed.
1.27 Please note that the Title in any products ordered from us does not pass to you, the purchaser until we have received and processed a valid payment (including all applicable delivery charges), and your order has been shipped.
Order and Dispatch
1.28 When an order is place and the payment made an automatic email is sent confirming your order details. Your offer is only accepted by us once we have emailed you to confirm the dispatch of your order. Product items not included within the dispatch email are not accepted by us as part of the order and therefore not subject to a contract between you, the purchaser and ourselves.
1.29 We reserve the right to delay or refuse orders where a transaction contains incomplete details, where a transaction cannot be verified or where fraud is suspected.
1.30 All orders received by us are shipped subject to availability. The product(s) will be dispatched within 4 business days after receipt of ordering and payment verification. Please note flat rate standard shipping of $10 within USA has weight restrictions.
1.31 If a product is out of stock and we cannot dispatch within 4 business days, we will contact you via email with 24 business hours to explain when we can dispatch the products and/or to offer you a full refund.
1.32 We cannot be held responsible for disruption to shipping caused by industrial disputes or action outside our reasonable control. If such disruption occurs you will be offered delivery via an alternative delivery or fulfilment company or a full refund.
1.33 For standard delivery, please allow for up to 7 working days for delivery following the dispatch of your order. Delivery shall be completed when we deliver the products to the address you gave us and the products will be your responsibility from that time. If we miss any given delivery deadline then you may cancel your order straight away if any of the following apply:
(a) we have refused to deliver the products;
(b) delivery within the delivery deadline was essential (taking into account all the relevant circumstances); or
(c) you told us before we accepted your order that delivery within the delivery deadline was essential.
If you do not wish to cancel your order straight away, or do not have the right to do so, you can give us a new deadline for delivery, which must be reasonable, and you can cancel your order if we do not meet the new deadline. If the products have been delivered to you, you will have to return them to us or allow us to collect them, and we will pay the costs of this. After you cancel your order we will refund any sums you have paid to us for the cancelled products and their delivery.
Cancellations, Returns and Refunds
1.34 Under the Consumer Contracts (Information, Cancellation and Additional Charges) Regulations you have the right to cancel your online purchase from the date of the dispatch confirmation (the date on which we e-mail you to confirm our acceptance of your order), which is when the contract between us is formed, and ends 14 days after the day you receive your goods. Advice about your legal right to cancel the Contract is available from your local Citizens' Advice Bureau or Trading Standards Office.
1.35 To meet the cancellation deadline, please notify us via email at email@example.com. Alternatively you can copy and paste cancellation form at the end of these terms and conditions into an email, complete and send or print and post to us before the cancellation period has expired.
1.36 If you cancel your purchase we will refund you the price you paid for the products. However, please note we are permitted by law to reduce your refund to reflect any reduction in the value of the goods, if this has been caused by your handling them in a way which would not be permitted in a shop. If we refund you the price paid before we are able to inspect the goods and later discover you have handled them in an unacceptable way, you must pay us an appropriate amount. We will also refund any delivery costs you have paid, although, as permitted by law, the maximum refund will be the costs of delivery by the least expensive delivery method we offer (provided that this is a common and generally acceptable method). Any refunds made will be made on the credit card or debit card used by you to pay. No right of cancellation, refund or return otherwise exists once you have used your products, unless the product is defective and you are returning it for this reason.
1.37 Whilst in possession of the goods you are under the duty to retain them and take reasonable care of them. You must send the goods back to our Returns Address at your own cost (unless we delivered the item to you in error or the item is not as described or is damaged or defective) as soon as possible once you have cancelled the order.
1.38 If the original packaging surrounding the product has been damaged or destroyed we will only issue a refund if the product is being returned due to a defect.
1.39 If the original packaging of a defective product has been damaged or destroyed you should ensure that the returned product is adequately packed for shipment back to us.
1.40 Subject to clause 1.35, you are responsible for paying any postage or shipping costs incurred when returning the product. If the product is defective we will refund any postage costs incurred.
1.41 All returns must be sent via Standard Mail Services to our Returns Address and recommend you use registered post, so that a record of the return is available for you. We will not issue refunds for any items lost or stolen in transit to us.
1.42 Where a return is lost or stolen in transit to us, you should claim compensation from the company that shipped the return.
1.43 In circumstances where we have agreed to refund shipping charges, note that we will not refund any courier, overnight or express element of any delivery.
1.44 We reserve the right to make a charge not exceeding our direct costs of recovering the goods if you do not return the goods or return them at our expense.
1.45 Once you have notified us that you wish to cancel the order, any sum debited to us will be refunded to you as soon as possible and in any event within 14 days of us receiving the returned goods.
1.46 You will not have any right to cancel an order for the supply of any of the following goods:
