4. OUR CONTRACT WITH YOU

4.1. How we will accept your Order. Our acceptance of your order for Goods made via the Website (Order) will take place when we e-mail you to accept it, at which point, a contract (Contract) will come into existence between you and us.

4.2. If we cannot accept your Order. If we are unable to accept your Order, we will inform you of this and, depending upon whether payment has already been taken by us for the relevant Goods (see paragraph 13.4), will either not charge you for the relevant Goods or refund you for the relevant Goods (as applicable). This might be because the Goods are out of stock, because of unexpected limits on our resources which we could not reasonably plan for, because we have identified an error in the price or description of the Goods provided via the Website or because we are unable to meet a delivery deadline you have specified in connection with your Order.

4.3. Order number. We will assign a number to your Order and tell you what it is when we accept your Order. It will help us if you can tell us this number whenever you contact us about your Order.

5. OUR GOODS

5.1. Goods may vary from Website pictures. The images of Goods on the Website are for illustrative purposes only. Although we have made every effort to display colours accurately, we cannot guarantee that a device’s display of the colours accurately reflects the colour of Goods. Any Goods which you order via the Website may vary slightly from those images.

5.2. Goods packaging may vary from Website pictures. The packaging of Goods may vary from that shown in images on the Website.

6. YOUR RIGHTS TO MAKE CHANGES

If it is possible, we will let you know about any changes to the price of the Goods, the timing of supply of the Goods and/or anything else which would be necessary as a result of your requested change(s); we will also ask you to confrm whether you wish to go ahead with the relevant change(s). If we cannot make the change(s) or the consequences of making the change(s) are unacceptable to you, you may want to end the Contract (see paragraph 9).

7. OUR RIGHTS TO MAKE CHANGES
7.1. Minor changes to the Goods or these Terms. We may from time to time change Goods and/or these Terms:

7.2. More signifcant changes to the Goods or these Terms. In addition, we may make more significant changes to Goods or these Terms, but if we do so, we will notify you and you may then contact us to end the Contract before the changes take effect and receive a refund for any Goods paid for but not received.

8. PROVIDING THE GOODS

8.1. Delivery costs. The costs of delivery of the Goods will be as displayed on the Website.

If our supply of Goods is delayed by an event outside our control, we will contact you as soon as possible to let you know and we will take steps to minimise the effect of the delay.

8.4. If you are not at home when the Goods are delivered. If no one is available at your address to take delivery and the Goods cannot be posted through your letterbox, a note will be left for you informing you of how to rearrange delivery or collect the Goods from a local depot.

(b) delivery of the Goods 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.

8.7. Setting a new deadline for delivery. If you do not wish to treat the Contract as at an end straight away, or do not have the right to do so under paragraph 8.6, you can provide us with a new deadline for the delivery of the Goods, which must be reasonable, and you can treat the Contract as at an end if we do not meet the new deadline.

8.8. Ending the Contract for late delivery. If you do choose to treat the Contract as at an end for late delivery under paragraph 8.6 or paragraph 8.7, you can cancel your Order for any of the Goods or reject Goods that have been delivered. If you wish, you can reject or cancel the Order for some of those Goods (not all of them), unless splitting them up would significantly reduce their value. After that, we will refund any sums you have paid to us for the cancelled Goods and their delivery. If the Goods have been delivered to you, you must either post them back to us or (if they are not suitable for posting) allow us to collect them from you. We will pay the costs of postage or collection. Please contact us for a return label or to arrange collection.

8.5. If you do not re-arrange delivery. If, after a failed delivery of Goods to you, you do not re-arrange delivery or collect them from a delivery depot, we will contact you for further instructions and may charge you for storage costs and any further delivery costs. If, despite our reasonable efforts, we are unable to contact you or re-arrange delivery or collection, we may end the Contract and paragraph 11.2 will apply.

If you do not wish to treat the Contract as at an end straight away, or do not have the right to do so under paragraph 8.6, you can provide us with a new deadline for the delivery of the Goods, which must be reasonable, and you can treat the Contract as at an end if we do not meet the new deadline

8.8. Ending the Contract for late delivery. If you do choose to treat the Contract as at an end for late delivery under paragraph 8.6 or paragraph 8.7, you can cancel your Order for any of the Goods or reject Goods that have been delivered. If you wish, you can reject or cancel the Order for some of those Goods (not all of them), unless splitting them up would significantly reduce their value. After that, we will refund any sums you have paid to us for the cancelled Goods and their delivery. If the Goods have been delivered to you, you must either post them back to us or (if they are not suitable for posting) allow us to collect them from you. We will pay the costs of postage or collection. Please contact us for a return label or to arrange collection.

8.9. When you become responsible for the Goods. The Goods will be your responsibility from the time we deliver
them to the address you gave us when you placed your Order.

8.10. When you own the Goods. You will own the Goods once we have received payment in full from you for them.

8.11. What will happen if you do not give required information to us. We may need certain information from you so that we can supply certain Goods to you. If so, this will have been stated in the description of the relevant Goods on the Website. 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 (and paragraph 11.2 will apply) 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 Goods late or not supplying any part of them if this is caused by you not giving us the information we need within a reasonable time of us asking for it.

8.12. Reasons we may suspend the supply of Goods to you. We may have to suspend the supply of Goods to:

(a) deal with technical problems or make minor technical changes;

(b) update the Goods to reflect changes in relevant laws and regulatory requirements; or

(c) make changes to the Goods as requested by you or notified by us to you (see paragraph 7).

8.13. Your rights if we suspend the supply of Goods. We will contact you in advance to tell you that we will be suspending the supply of Goods, unless the problem is urgent or an emergency. If we have to suspend the supply of Goods, we will adjust the price so that you do not pay for Goods while they are suspended. You may contact us to end the Contract if we suspend it, or tell you we are going to suspend it, in each case for a period of more than 14 days and we will refund any sums you have paid in advance for the Goods in respect of the period after you end the Contract.

8.14. We may also suspend the supply of Goods if you do not pay. If you do not pay us for Goods when you are supposed to (see paragraph 13.4) and you still do not make payment within 14 days of us reminding you that payment is due, we may suspend the supply of the Goods until you have paid us the outstanding amounts. We will contact you to tell you we are suspending the supply of the Goods. We will not charge you for the Goods during the period for which they are suspended. As well as suspending the provision of the Goods, we can also charge you interest on your overdue payments (see paragraph 13.5).

9. YOUR RIGHTS TO END THE CONTRACT

9.1. You can always end the Contract. Your rights when you end the Contract will depend on what you have bought, whether there is anything wrong with it, how we are performing and when you decide to end the Contract:

(a) If what you have bought is faulty or misdescribed, you may have a legal right to end the Contract (or to get the Goods repaired or replaced or to get some or all of your money back); see paragraph 12.

(b) If you want to end the Contract because of something we have done or have told you we are going to do, see paragraph 9.2.

(c) If you have just changed your mind about the Goods, see paragraph 9.3. You may be able to get a refund if you are within the cooling-off period, but this may be subject to deductions and you will have to pay the costs of return of any Goods.

(d) In all other cases (if we are not at fault and there is no right to change your mind), see paragraph 9.6.

9.2. Ending the Contract because of something we have done or are going to do. If you are ending the Contract for a reason set out at (a) to (e) below, the Contract will end immediately and we will refund you in full for any Goods which you have paid for but which have not been provided.

The reasons are:

(a) we have told you about one or more upcoming significant changes to the Goods or these Terms which you do not agree to (see paragraph 7.2);

(b) we have told you about an error in the price or description of the Goods you have ordered and you do not wish to proceed;

(c) there is a risk that supply of the Goods may be signifcantly delayed because of events outside our control;

(d) we have suspended supply of the Goods for technical reasons, or notify you that we are going to suspend them for technical reasons, in each case for a period of more than 14 days; or

(e) you have a legal right to end the Contract because of something we have done wrong (including because we have delivered late – see paragraph 8.6).

9.3. Exercising your right to change your mind. For most goods bought online, you have a legal right to change your mind within 14 days and receive a refund. These rights, under the The Consumer Contracts (Information, Cancellation and Additional Charges) Regulations 2013, are explained in further detail in these Terms.

9.4. When you don’t have the right to change your mind. You do not have a right to change your mind in
respect of:

(a) Goods sealed for health protection or hygiene purposes, once these have been unsealed after you receive
them;

(b) sealed audio or sealed video recordings or sealed computer software, once these Goods are unsealed after you receive them; and

(c) any Goods which become mixed inseparably with other items after their delivery.

9.5. How long do I have to change my mind? You have 14 days after the day you (or someone you nominate) receives the Goods, unless:

(a) The Goods are split into several deliveries over different days. In this case, you have until 14 days after the day you (or someone you nominate) receives the last delivery of the Goods to change your mind about the Goods.

(b) Your Goods are for regular delivery over a set period. In this case, you have until 14 days after the day you (or someone you nominate) receives the frst delivery of the Goods.

9.6. Ending the Contract where we are not at fault and there is no right to change your mind. Even if we are not at fault and you do not have a right to change your mind (see paragraph 9.1), you can still end the Contract before it is completed, but you may have to pay us compensation. A Contract is completed when the Goods are delivered and paid for. If you want to end a Contract before it is completed where we are not at fault and you have not changed your mind, just contact us to let us know. The Contract will end immediately and we will refund any sums paid by you for Goods not provided but we may deduct from that refund (or, if you have not made an advance payment, charge you) reasonable compensation for the net costs we will incur as a result of your ending the Contract.

10. HOW TO END THE CONTRACT (INCLUDING IF YOU HAVE CHANGED YOUR MIND)

10.1. Tell us you want to end the Contract. To end the Contract with us, please let us know by contacting us. If you are doing so in writing, you may (but shall not be obliged to) use the form appended to these Terms for this purpose.

10.2. Returning Goods after ending the Contract. If you end the Contract for any reason after Goods have been dispatched to you or you have received them, you must return them to us. You must then either post the Goods back to us or (if they are not suitable for posting) allow us to collect them from you. Please contact us for a return label or to arrange collection. If you are exercising your right to change your mind, you must send the Goods within 14 days of telling us you wish to end the Contract.

10.3. When we will pay the costs of return. We will pay the costs of returning Goods:

(a) if the Goods are faulty or misdescribed; or

(b) if you are entitled to and subsequently end the Contract because we have told you of an upcoming change to the Goods or these Terms, an error in pricing or description, a delay in delivery due to events outside our control or because you have a legal right to do so as a result of something we have done wrong. In all other circumstances (including where you are exercising your right to change your mind) you must pay the costs of return.

10.4. What we charge for collection. If you are responsible for the costs of return and we are collecting the Goods from you, we will charge you the direct cost to us of collection. You will be advised of such costs at the time when you contact us to arrange for our collection of the Goods.

10.5. How we will refund you. We will refund you the price you paid for the Goods (including delivery costs) by the original method you used for payment. However, we may make deductions from any such refund as described below.

10.6. Deductions from refunds if you are exercising your right to change your mind. If you are exercising your right to change your mind:

(a) We may reduce your refund (excluding delivery costs) to reflect any reduction in the value of the Goods, if this has been caused by your handling of 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.

(b) The maximum refund for delivery costs will be the costs of delivery by the least expensive delivery method we offer at the relevant time.

10.7. When your refund will be made. We will make any refunds due to you as soon as possible. If you are exercising your right to change your mind then:

(a) If we have not offered to collect the Goods, your refund will be made within 14 days from the day on which we receive the Goods back from you or, if earlier, the day on which you provide us with evidence that you have sent the Goods back to us. For information about how to return Goods to us, see paragraph 10.2.

(b) In all other cases, your refund will be made within 14 days of your telling us you have changed your mind.

11. OUR RIGHTS TO END THE CONTRACT

11.1. We may end the Contract if you break it. We may end the Contract at any time by writing to you if:

(a) you do not make any payment to us when it is due and you still do not make payment within 14 days of us reminding you that payment is due;

(b) you do not, within a reasonable time of us asking for it, provide us with information that is necessary for us to provide the Goods; or

(c) you do not, within a reasonable time, allow us to deliver the Goods to you.

11.2. You must compensate us if you break the Contract. If we end the Contract in the situations set out in paragraph 11.1, we will refund any money you have paid in advance for Goods we have not provided but we may deduct or charge you reasonable compensation for the net costs we will incur as a result of your breaking the Contract.

11.3. We may withdraw the Goods. We may write to you to let you know that we are going to stop providing the Goods. We will provide you with as much notice as we are reasonably able to in advance of our stopping the supply of the Goods and will refund any sums you have paid in advance for Goods which will not be provided.

12. IF THERE IS A PROBLEM WITH THE GOODS

12.1. How to tell us about problems. If you have any questions or complaints about the Goods, please contact us.

12.2. Summary of your legal rights. We are under a legal duty to supply Goods that are in conformity with this Contract. See the box below for a summary of your key legal rights in relation to the Goods. Nothing in these Terms will affect your legal rights.

12.3. Your obligation to return rejected Goods. If you wish to exercise your legal rights to reject Goods, you must either post them back to us or (if they are not suitable for posting) allow us to collect them from you. We will pay the costs of postage or collection. Please contact us for a return label or to arrange collection.

13. PRICE AND PAYMENT

13.1. Where to fnd the price for Goods. The price of Goods (which includes VAT) will be the price indicated on the Website when you placed your Order. We take all reasonable care to ensure that the price of the Goods indicated on the Website from time to time is correct. However, please see paragraph 13.3 for what happens if we discover an error in the price of the Goods the subject of your Order.

13.2. We will pass on changes in the rate of VAT. If the rate of VAT changes between the date of your Order and the date we supply the Goods, we will adjust the rate of VAT that you pay, unless you have already paid for the Goods in full before the change in the rate of VAT takes effect.

13.3. What happens if we got the price wrong. It is always possible that, despite our best efforts, some Goods may be incorrectly priced. We will normally check prices before accepting your Order so that, where the correct price for Goods at the date of your Order is less than our stated price at such date, we will charge the lower amount. If the correct price for Goods on the date of your Order is higher than the price stated to you, we will contact you for your instructions before we accept your Order. If we accept and process your Order where a pricing error is obvious and unmistakeable and could reasonably have been recognised by you as a mispricing, we may end the Contract, refund you any sums you have paid and require the return of any Goods provided to you.

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 (http:// www.adviceguide.org.uk) or call them on 03454 04 05 06. The Consumer Rights Act 2015 says goods must be as described, ft for purpose and of satisfactory quality. During the expected lifespan of goods, your legal rights entitle you to the following:

  • Up to 30 days: if your goods are faulty, you can get an immediate refund.
  • Up to 6 months: if your goods can’t be repaired or replaced, in most cases, you’re entitled to a full refund.
  • Up to 6 years: if your goods do not last a reasonable length of time, you may be entitled to some money
    back.

13.4. When you must pay and how you must pay. We accept payment for Goods in the manner described on the Website. You must pay for Goods before we dispatch them. We may charge any credit or debit card which you use for the purposes of payment for any Goods at any point between our acceptance of your Order and the date on which we dispatch the Goods to you.

13.5. We can charge interest if you pay late. If you do not make any payment to us by the relevant due date, we may charge interest to you on the overdue amount at the rate of 4% a year above the base rate of The Bank of England from time to time. This interest shall accrue on a daily basis from the due date until the date of actual payment of the overdue amount, whether before or after judgment. You must pay us interest together with any overdue amount.

14. OUR RESPONSIBILITY FOR LOSS OR DAMAGE SUFFERED BY YOU

14.1. We are responsible to you for foreseeable loss and damage caused by us. If we fail to comply with these Terms, we are responsible for loss or damage you suffer that is a foreseeable result of our breaking the Contract or our failing to use reasonable care and skill. Loss or damage is foreseeable if either it is obvious that it will happen or if, at the time the Contract was made, both we and you knew it might happen, for example, because you discussed it with us during the sales process.

14.2. We do not exclude or limit in any way our liability to you where it would be unlawful to do so. This includes liability for death or personal injury caused by our negligence or the negligence of our employees, agents or subcontractors; for fraud or fraudulent misrepresentation; and for breach of your legal rights in relation to the Goods.

14.3. We are not liable for business losses. We only supply Goods for domestic and private use. If you use the Goods for any commercial, business or re-sale purpose, we will have no liability to you for any loss of profit, loss of business, business interruption, or loss of business opportunity.

15. HOW WE MAY USE YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION

15.1. How we will use your personal information. We will use the personal information you provide to us in connection with an Order:

(a) to supply the Goods to you;

(b) to process your payment for the Goods; and

(c) if you agreed to this during the ordering process, to give you information about similar Goods that we provide, but you may stop receiving this at any time by contacting us.

15.2. We will only give your personal information to third parties where the law either requires or allows us to
do so.

16. OTHER IMPORTANT TERMS
16.1. We may transfer our rights and obligations to someone else. We may transfer our rights and obligations under these Terms to another person. We will tell you in writing if this happens and we will ensure that the transfer will not affect your rights under the Contract.

16.2. You need our consent to transfer your rights or obligations to someone else. You may only transfer your rights or your obligations under these Terms to another person if we agree to this in writing.

16.3. Nobody else has any rights under the Contract. The Contract is between you and us. No other person shall
have any rights to enforce any of its terms.

16.4. If a court fnds part of the Contract illegal, the rest will continue in force. Each of the paragraphs of these Terms operates separately. If any court or relevant authority decides that any of them are unlawful, the remaining paragraphs will remain in full force and effect.

16.5. Even if we delay in enforcing the Contract, we can still enforce it later. If we do not insist immediately that you do anything you are required to do under these Terms, or if we delay in taking steps against you in respect of your breaking the Contract, that will not mean that you do not have to do those things and it will not prevent us taking steps against you at a later date. For example, if you miss a payment and we do not chase you but we continue to provide the Goods, we can still require you to make the payment at a later date.

16.6. Which laws apply to the Contract and where you may bring legal proceedings. These Terms are governed by English law and you can bring legal proceedings in respect of the Goods in the English courts. If you live in Scotland, you can bring legal proceedings in respect of the Goods in either the Scottish or the English courts. If you live in Northern Ireland, you can bring legal proceedings in respect of the Goods in either the Northern Irish or the English courts. In addition, we can give you certain information in writing required by law about our alternative dispute resolution provider and you may also use the European Commission’s online dispute resolution platform to resolve a dispute with us: please visit https://webgate.ec.europa.eu/odr.
