This agreement shall be governed by the laws of England and you agree to the exclusive jurisdiction of the English courts.
You acknowledge that, if any part of this agreement is held invalid or unenforceable, all other clauses, terms and parts of clauses will remain in force and shall continue unbroken.
No clause or action by you or us at any time may be construed as waiver of any part of the agreement
Delivery, cancellations and returns
We will confirm your orders by email. If you do not receive the email, please contact us and we will re-confirm by reply.
We reserve the right to decline any order for any reason without explanation.
You may cancel your order at any time by sending us notification by email, but we can only accept a cancellation if we have not yet sent your order.
We always try to send your purchased products as quickly as possible after you place your order in line with our delivery terms. But because of the complexities of the Internet and postal services we do not guarantee an actual delivery date, time, or schedule. We send items by the postal or courier service stated at the time of order, and we bear no liability for the failure of any third-party to meet their delivery obligation or promise.
You may decide that the item you purchased is not suitable or otherwise unwanted. We will refund your payment in full provided that:
- You notify us within 10 days of us sending the order to you
- and we agree and authorise the return. We will not reasonably refuse authorisation
- and you return the item to us in its original condition and unused. For some low-cost items where it is not cost effective to return, we may accept other proof that the item will be disposed of. We will advise when this is the case
You may be liable for the cost of returning goods at our discretion.
Products may become unavailable, and you may cancel or amend your order if any products become unavailable.
You must ensure that our delivery to you can be accepted. Additional delivery costs incurred by us due to your not making suitable acceptance arrangement may be charged to you at our discretion.
You bear the risk and cost of returns, except where we agree to bear the cost at our discretion.
We are based in the UK, and may choose not to send our product to an overseas shipping address (some locations experience delivery issues from time to time). At our discretion, we will cancel orders where we do not feel we can safely and promptly delivery your products.
Payments and refunds
We do not directly process any credit card or debit card payment and you acknowledge that we incur a non-returnable transaction fee for each payment (which is deducted by PayPal from the amount paid by you through PayPal). We do not hold any credit card or debit card information. To prevent fraud, we will only refund to the PayPal account you used to make payment, and you therefore agree to maintain the PayPal account from which you made payment for the life of your use of our site, so that payments and refunds may be properly processed.
We will wait until payment is cleared and completed by PayPal before we send any purchased items. We are not responsible for delays or problems with the PayPal payment service.
We will only send an order when payment has been made in full, and we will not part-ship any part of an order unless we agree before you place an order.
We consider “unreasonable repeated return or refund requests” to mean more that 8 such request from you in any rolling 12 month period.
Where payment is made and processed through PayPal (a 3rd party payment processor) we receive that payment less a PayPal transaction fee, which is deducted form the amount paid to us by PayPal. For unreasonable repeated return or refund requests which we do not consider to be caused by us, we will refund amounts reduced by the PayPal transaction charge we incurred during the processing of the originating payment and any refund.
Where, at our discretion, you are unreasonably requesting repeated refunds for products shipped to you, we reserve the right to terminate your use of the site and we will refund all payments for products that we have not yet shipped, and cancel all further orders. You agree to cease placing further orders if we inform you that your use of the site is terminated.
Payment disputes with PayPal or your card provider are between you, PayPal and the card provider. We have no responsibility or liability for your payment transactions.
Misuse or suspected misuse on your part (such as suspected money laundering or tax evasion) will result in your access to the site being terminated immediately. We will always report suspected, suspicious, or illegal use of our service to the proper legal authorities and police.
Any payment that is not completed, fraudulent, rejected by PayPal or charged-back to us in any way, will result in the cancellation of your order. If you charge back the payment to us after we have sent your order, you acknowledge that remain liable to for making payment in full within 5 days of us sending the order.
We will endeavour to make refunds as soon as practically possible, normally with 2 working days of agreeing to do so, but always with 30 days after agreeing to do so. Refunds are provided in line with out policies and on the basis of goodwill, and the payment of a refund does not indicate any error or liability on our part.
Where we offer or provide something for zero cost, or free, you acknowledge that this is offered as goodwill, has zero (£0) value, zero (£0) refund value, comes without any contractual obligations on our part, and that you remain bound by this agreement.
