Ordering products

 Your order constitutes an offer to purchase products from us, and does not form a binding contract until accepted by us. On receipt of your order, we will send you an order acknowledgement email to the email address provided by you in the order process. This order acknowledgement email will contain your order number and details of the products ordered. This email is an acknowledgement of receipt of your order.  It is not an acceptance by us of any offer to purchase products.

An order shall be accepted by us only when we dispatch the products to you and send you an order dispatch email that includes details of the products, price and payment method. We reserve the right to refuse any order before acceptance and we shall notify you accordingly.

Please ensure that all information in your order is complete and accurate and in particular, you must not use a false name or a known invalid credit card to order products from us. You may only purchase products from us if you are at least 18 years old. 

Price

We must receive payment of the whole of the price for the products that you order and the delivery costs (if any) before your order can be accepted. Payment is to be made by debit or credit card or PayPal. We are not liable for the failure or other acts or omissions of any third party payment system or provider.  

Prices and delivery costs are set out on our website and are subject to change from time to time.

Our Products

Our products are subject to availability. We will inform you as soon as possible if the products ordered are not available and we may offer an alternative product of equal or higher quality and value or provide a refund for sums paid.

However, please note that whilst we try to display the colours of the products accurately, the actual colours you see will depend on your device and we cannot guarantee that your device's display of any colour will accurately reflect the colour of the product on delivery. and accordingly, there may be a slight variance in the size, colour, dimensions, measurements and weight between the products you receive and the description on our website.   

Two Year Warranty

The products on delivery to you shall be of satisfactory quality, comply with their description and fit for their purpose.  Then for two years from the date of delivery, we warrant that the products will remain of satisfactory quality and fit for their purpose. 

If there is any defect in the materials or workmanship of the products on delivery or during the two year warranty period (subject to the exceptions below) then please  Contact Us.  You should also send us appropriate evidence, including photographs, of any defect if we ask you to do so.  We shall repair the defect,  replace the product or refund the price for the product as we reasonably determine.    

The warranty does not apply in the following circumstances:

  • deliberate damage, or reckless misuse;
  • commercial use of the products;
  • inappropriate storage conditions;
  • if you have tried to repair or engaged a third party to try repair the fault
  • fair wear and tear;
  • minor imperfections reflecting the nature of the materials

Delivery

We will use all reasonable endeavours to deliver the products in accordance with the delivery timescale set out on the website.  If you do not receive the products within such timescale, you should notify us accordingly and we shall investigate the delivery. 

Products for delivery outside of the United Kingdom may be subject to additional charges such as import duties and taxes, which are levied once the products reach the specified destination. We have no control over these charges and cannot predict what they may be.  You are responsible for such charges and so we recommend that you contact the local customs office for further information as to the amount of such charges (if any).  Please also note that products for delivery overseas may be opened and inspected by customs authorities.

Right to Cancel 

You may cancel your contract with us for the products by contacting us within 28 days from the date you receive the products, clearly stating the following: your name, geographical address, your phone number,  email address and full details of the order you wish to cancel.

You must take good care of the products (and not use the products) whilst they are in your possession. You must promptly return the products to us (and in any event within 14 days of the notice to cancel). You must return the products using the returns label we provide to you with the original packaging and labels attached to the products. We strongly recommend that you obtain a certificate of posting. Please also make sure you package the products appropriately to avoid damage.   

We will refund any sums paid for the products returned and, if you return the whole (not part) of the order, we will refund the delivery costs you paid (if any) up to the price of standard delivery. We will refund you using the same means of payment that you used to purchase the products.

If you do not return the products that you have cancelled, or you do not pay the costs of returning them to us, or the products are damaged during the course of returning the products or otherwise, we shall be entitled to deduct from the amount to be refunded to you the direct costs of recovering the products or to reflect the loss or damage to the products.

These provisions do not apply to the products which are personalised.

  • we have insufficient stock to deliver the products you have ordered;
  • we do not deliver products to your delivery address;
  • we cannot obtain authorisation for your payment;
  • we cannot verify that you are aged 18 or over; and/or
  • one or more of the products you ordered was listed at an incorrect price due to a typographical error.
