HOW WE USE YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION
IF YOU ARE A CONSUMER
This clause shall only apply if you are a consumer on our Site.
If you are a consumer, you may only purchase Products from our Site if you are at least 18 years old.
As a consumer, you have legal rights in relation to Products that are faulty or not as described. Advice about your legal rights is available from your local Citizens' Advice Bureau or Trading Standards office. Nothing in these Terms will affect these legal rights.
IF YOU ARE A BUSINESS CUSTOMER
This clause only applies if you are a business customer on our Site.
If you are not a consumer, you confirm that you have authority to represent any business on whose behalf you use our Site to purchase Products.
These Terms and any document expressly referred to herein constitute the entire agreement between you and us. You acknowledge that you have not relied on any statement, promise or representation made, or given by, or on behalf of us set out in these Terms or any document expressly referred to within them.
HOW THE CONTRACT IS FORMED BETWEEN YOU AND US
Our order process allows you to check and amend your order before submitting it. Please take the time to read and check your order carefully at each stage of the order process.
All Products shown on our Site are subject to availability. After you place an order, you will receive an e-mail from us acknowledging that we have received your order. However, please note that this does not mean that your order has been accepted. Our acceptance of your order will take place when product availability has been confirmed. Once you have our Order Confirmation, a binding contract will be formed for purchase of the Product. Payment details will be taken at the time of order, but this does not mean the order is confirmed, until after stock has been allocated.
If we are unable to supply you with a Product, for example because that Product is not in stock, or no longer available, or because of an error in the price on our Site, we will inform you of this by e-mail and we will not process your order.
If following Order Confirmation and process of your payment the Product is no longer available you shall be refunded any payment taken from you using the credit or debit card you used to pay for the Product.
OUR RIGHT TO VARY THESE TERMS
We may revise these Terms from time to time in the following circumstances: a) changes in how we accept payment from you; b) changes in how we conduct business; or c) changes in relevant laws and regulatory requirements. Every time you order Products from our Site, the Terms in force at that time will apply to the Contract.
Whenever we revise these Terms in accordance with this clause, we will keep you informed and give you notice of this by stating that these Terms have been amended and the relevant date at the top of this page.
YOUR CANCELLATION RIGHTS IF YOU CHANGE YOUR MIND
This clause shall only apply if you are a consumer on our Site.
If you are a consumer, you have a legal right to change your mind and cancel a Contract under the Consumer Contracts Regulations 2013 during the period set out below. This means that during the relevant period if you change your mind or for any other reason you decide you do not want to keep a Product, you can notify us of your decision to cancel the Contract and receive a refund. Advice about your legal right to cancel the Contract under these regulations is available from your local Citizens' Advice Bureau or Trading Standards office.
You do not have the right to change your mind and cancel the Contract where a Product has been made to your specifications and is clearly personalised i.e. commissioned artwork.
You may cancel a Contract from the date you receive the Order Confirmation, which is when the Contract between you and us is formed. If the Product has already been delivered to you, you have a period of 14 (fourteen) days in which you may cancel, starting from the day you receive the Product.
If you have received the unwanted Product once you have changed your mind, you must pay the cost of returning it to us unless we have agreed otherwise. We will process the refund due to you using the credit or debit card you used to pay for the Product and refunds will be processed without undue delay, and in any event no later than 14 days after either (i) we received the returned Product; or (ii) the day on which you provide evidence to us that the Product has been returned.
If the Products were delivered to you: a) you must return the Products to us in accordance with the Customer Returns Policy and within 14 days of receipt, unless the Products were split into different deliveries over different days in which case you must return the Products within 14 days from the date the last Product was received, in the original packaging and including any certificates provided with the Product; b) you have a legal obligation to keep the Products in your possession and to take reasonable care of the Products while in your possession. If the value of the Product is diminished as a result of your handling of the Product beyond what is necessary to establish the nature, characteristics and functioning of the Product, we may recover that amount from you, up to the value of the Product, by either: (i) deducting that amount from the refund due to you; or (ii) otherwise requiring you to reimburse this amount.
If you have returned the Product under this clause because it is faulty or significantly not as described, we will refund the price of the Product in full, and any applicable delivery charges.
As a consumer, you will always have legal rights in relation to Products that are faulty or not as described. These legal rights are not affected by the returns policy in this clause or these Terms. The Seller is under a legal duty to supply Products that are in conformity with the Contract. See the box below for a summary of your key legal rights in relation to the Product. Nothing in these Terms will affect your legal rights. Summary of your key legal rights This is a summary of your key legal rights. These are subject to certain exceptions. For detailed information please visit the Citizens Advice website or call 03454 04 05 06. The Consumer Rights Act 2015 says goods must be as described, fit for purpose and of satisfactory quality. During the expected lifespan of your Product your legal rights entitle you to the following:
up to 30 days: if your Product is faulty, then you can get an immediate refund;
up to six months: if your Product can't be repaired or replaced, then you're entitled to a full refund, in most cases;
up to six years: if your Products do not last a reasonable length of time you may be entitled to some money back.
OUR CANCELLATION RIGHTS TO END THE CONTRACT
We may end the Contract for a Product at any time by writing to you if you do not, within a reasonable time, provide us with information that is necessary for us to provide the Product following a request by us for the information from you.
If we end the Contract in the situations set out above, we will refund any money you have paid in advance for Products we have not provided.
The cost of delivery shall be as notified to you before you place your order. We shall deliver the Products to you as soon as reasonably possible and in any event within 30 days after the day on which your order is confirmed. If the supply of the Products is delayed by an event outside of our control, then we shall contact you as soon as possible to let you know and we shall take steps to minimise the effect of the delay. We shall not be liable for delays caused by any such event, but if there is a risk of substantial delay you may contact us to end the Contract and receive a refund for any Products you have paid for but not received.
Delivery will be completed when the Products are delivered to the address you gave us.
In the event of a late delivery, where the delay is not due to reasons outside of our control, you are entitled to end the Contract or negotiate a new delivery timescale with us.
The Products will be your responsibility from the completion of delivery.
You own the Products once we have received payment in full, including all applicable delivery charges.
We may need certain information from you so that we can supply the Product to you, for example, your full name, address, email address, and contact telephone number. If so, this will have been notified to you before you place your order. We will contact you to ask for this information. If you do not give us this information within a reasonable time of us asking for it, or if you give us incomplete or incorrect information, we may either end the Contract or make an additional charge of a reasonable sum to compensate us for any extra work that is required as a result. We will not be responsible for supplying Products late or not supplying any part of them if this is caused by you giving us the information we need within a reasonable time of us asking for it.
PRICE OF PRODUCTS AND DELIVERY CHARGES
The prices of the Product (which includes any applicable UK taxes) will be the Price as quoted on our Site. We take all reasonable care to ensure that the price of the Product advised to you is correct.
Prices for our Products may change from time to time, but changes will not affect any order for which we have issued an Order Confirmation.
The price of a Product includes VAT (where applicable) at the applicable current rate chargeable in the UK for the time being. However, if the rate of VAT changes between the date of your order and the date of the Order Confirmation we will adjust the rate of VAT that you pay, unless you have already paid for the product in full before the change in the rate of VAT takes effect.
The price of a Product does not include delivery charges. Our delivery charges are as quoted on our Site and may be subject to variation from time to time. Delivery options and charges will be notified to you on the Site before you place your order.
Please note that if the pricing error is obvious and unmistakeable and could have reasonably been recognised by you as a mispricing: we (i) in the event that your order has not yet been processed, do not have to provide the Product to you at the incorrect (lower) price; or (ii) in the event that your order has been processed, may end the contract, refund you any sums you have paid and require the return of the Product provided to you.
