2. Right to cancel under “Distance Selling Regulations”
2.1 Note that this section of our terms and conditions (right to cancel) does not apply to goods to which the right of cancellation under the Distance Selling Regulations does not apply including goods which by their nature cannot be returned or which are made to your specifications.
2.2 If you are a consumer (i.e. acting for purposes outside a business) located within the European Union, you have the right (ending 7 working days following the day after delivery of goods) to cancel the contract by email to [firstname.lastname@example.org] or any of the other methods specified in the Distance Selling Regulations in which case we will refund the price paid for the goods plus delivery charges attributable to the cancelled item. You are required to take reasonable care of items.
2.3 If you cancel, you must return the goods (including all component parts) at your expense to the address shown on our “contact us” page. We will charge you the direct costs of recovery if you do not comply or if you return them at our expense. We request that when returning goods:
2.3.1 you use recorded delivery and retain proof of posting;
2.3.2 you use (a) any returns form which we may make available on our website or alternatively (b) you include a note explaining the reason for your return as well as the order number and your name, address and a contact phone number; and
2.3.3 you carefully package the goods – in the original packaging.
2.4 Your above rights under the Distance Selling Regulations are not affected by any separate returns policy on our website.
3. Display of goods on our website
3.1 We will take reasonable care to ensure that representations and descriptions of goods appearing on our website are correct. We have made every effort to display as accurately as possible the appearance / colour / texture / finish of our goods. However, what you see will depend on your monitor and computer equipment and so you acknowledge and accept that there may be minor differences between the actual goods and the way that they appear on the screen. For example, the colour tone may differ.
4.1 Payment is in advance by the means stated on our website. Despatch of the goods is subject to our receipt of full payment in cleared funds.
4.2 The price for the goods you order is as stated on our site at the time you send us your order. VAT or sales tax is included unless we say otherwise.
4.3 If we have mis-priced any item by mistake, we are not obliged to supply the item at that price provided we notify you before we despatch it. If we do notify you, then you can decide if you want to order the item at the correct price but, if you don’t, we will provide a full refund of any payments already made.
5.1 Your order is an offer to buy from us.
5.2 You must ensure that your order and any other information you supply to us is correct and you must promptly update us if there are any changes.
6. Acceptance / unavailability
6.1 There will be no binding contract of any kind between you and us unless and until we accept your offer by actually despatching the goods to you. Until then we may decline to supply the goods to you without giving any reason. Nothing else that we do or say will amount to acceptance of your offer. If any goods are unavailable, we will notify you of the unavailability as soon as possible and will arrange for a full refund if you have been charged.
7.1 Delivery will be to the address which you specify when ordering. We may deliver different parts of your order on different dates.
7.2 Delivery costs are charged extra at the rate shown on our site when you place your order. These will depend on the delivery method chosen. NB The delivery charges do not include customs or import duties which may be applied to your order by the relevant authorities. It is your separate responsibility to pay for these.
7.3 We will use our reasonable endeavours to arrange delivery within the time specified on our website or, if none, a reasonable period. We are not liable for any losses arising from delay in delivery to the extent that this is due to circumstances beyond our reasonable control.
7.4 An extra delivery charge may become payable if no-one is present to accept delivery and either you haven’t provided alternative delivery instructions or else you don’t collect the item from a holding depot within 7 days.
7.5 Risk of damage or loss to the goods passes to you on delivery or if you wrongfully refuse delivery when delivery is attempted.
8.1 Nothing in this agreement in any way limits or excludes our liability for negligence causing death or personal injury or for fraudulent misrepresentation or for anything which may not legally be excluded or limited.
8.2 You must give us a reasonable opportunity to remedy any matter for which we are liable before you incur any costs remedying the matter yourself.
