HOW THE CONTRACT IS FORMED
The information set out in the Terms and the detail contained on this website do not constitute an offer for sale but rather an invitation to treat. No contract in respect of any items shall exist between us and you until your order has been expressly accepted by us (whether or not funds have been deducted from your account). If we do not accept your offer and funds have already been deducted, these will be fully refunded. To place an order, you will be required to follow the shopping process online and click on “Authorise payment” to submit the order. After this, you will receive an e-mail from us acknowledging that we have received your order (the “Order Confirmation”). Please note that this does not mean that your order has been accepted. Your order constitutes your offer to us to buy one or more items from us. All orders are subject to acceptance by us, and we will confirm such acceptance to you by sending you an e-mail that confirms that the item has been dispatched (the “Delivery Confirmation”). The contract for the purchase of an item between us (the “Contract”) will only be formed when we send you the Delivery Confirmation. The Contract will relate only to those items whose dispatch we have confirmed in the Delivery Confirmation. We will not be obliged to supply any other items which may have been part of your order until the dispatch of such items has been confirmed in a separate Delivery Confirmation.
AVAILABILITY OF ITEMS
All orders for items are subject to availability and in this regard, in the event of supply difficulties or because items are no longer in stock, we reserve the right to give you information about substitute items of an equal or higher quality and value which you can order. If you do not wish to order the substitute items we will reimburse any monies that you may have paid.
REFUSAL OF ORDER
We reserve the right to withdraw any items from this website at any time and/or remove or edit any materials or content on this website. Whilst we will use our reasonable endeavours to process all the orders submitted to us, there may be exceptional circumstances which mean that we may need to refuse to process or accept an order after we have received it or sent you an Order Confirmation, which we reserve the right to do at any time. We will not be liable to you or any other third party by reason of our withdrawing any item from this website, removing or editing any materials or content on this website or for refusing to process or accept an order after we have received it or sent you an Order Confirmation.
Subject to availability (see Clause 7 above), and unless there are any exceptional circumstances, we will endeavour to fulfil your order for items listed in the Delivery Confirmation by the delivery date set out in the Delivery Confirmation or, if no estimated delivery date is specified, then within a maximum of 2 days of the date of the Delivery Confirmation. If we fail to deliver the items within 2 days of the date of the Delivery Confirmation, you may cancel the Contract and we will reimburse you the price paid for the items and any delivery costs paid.
If our supply of the items is delayed by an event outside our control then we will contact you as soon as possible to let you know and we will take steps to minimize the effect of the delay. Provided we do this we will not be liable for delays caused by the event, but if there is a risk of substantial delay you may contact us to end the Contract and receive a refund for any items you have paid for but not received. With regard to the
virtual gift card, we will send it to you on the date indicated by you when you place your order.
Please note however that we do not deliver on Saturdays or Sundays, except in the case of the virtual gift card, which will be delivered on the date indicated by you.
For the purpose of these Terms “delivery” or “delivered” shall be deemed to have occurred when you or a third party nominated by you acquires physical possession of the items, which will be evidenced by the signing for receipt of the items at the agreed delivery address. The virtual gift card will be deemed to be delivered in accordance with the Terms and Conditions of the Gift Card, and in all cases on the delivery date of the virtual card to the e-mail address indicated by you.
UNABLE TO DELIVER
If we are unable to deliver, we will try to find a safe secure place to leave your parcel. If we cannot find a safe and secure place, your item(s) will be returned to our depot. We will leave a note explaining where your parcel is and how you can rearrange delivery. If you are not at the delivery location at the time agreed, please contact us again to rearrange delivery for another mutually convenient day.
If after 14 days from the date your order is available for delivery, the order could not be delivered for reasons not attributable to us, we shall assume that you wish to cancel the Contract and it will be terminated. As a result of the termination of the Contract, we will return to you all payments received from you, including delivery charges (except for any additional costs resulting from your choice of any delivery method other than the ordinary delivery method that we offer) without any undue delay, and at any rate, within 14 days of the date on which this Contract has been terminated. This clause shall not apply to the virtual gift card, for which the delivery is governed by the Terms and Conditions of the Gift Card and clause 9 above.
RISK AND TITLE
The items will be at your risk from the time of delivery.
Ownership of the items will only pass to you when we receive full payment of all sums due in respect of the items, including delivery charges, or upon delivery (as defined in Clause 9), whichever is the later.
PRICE AND PAYMENT
The price of any items will be as stipulated on our site from time to time, except in cases of obvious error. While we try to ensure that all prices on the website are accurate, errors may occur. If we discover an error in the price of items you have ordered, we will inform you as soon as possible and give you the option of reconfirming the order at the correct price or cancelling it. If we are unable to contact you, the order will be treated as cancelled and if you have already paid for the items you will receive a full refund. We are under no obligation to provide the items to you at the incorrect (lower) price (even after we have sent you a Delivery Confirmation) if the pricing error is obvious and unmistakable and could have reasonably been recognised by you as incorrect price. The prices on the website include VAT but exclude delivery costs, which will be added to the total amount due as set out in our Shopping Guide. Prices are liable to change at any time, but (other than as set out above) changes will not affect orders in respect of which we have already sent you an Order Confirmation. Therefore, except as provided above, price adjustments on previous orders are not permitted.
Once you have finished shopping all the items you wish to purchase are added to your basket and your next step will be to go to the checkout process and make payment. To do this, you must follow the steps of the purchase process, completing or verifying the information requested in each step. Throughout the purchase process, before payment, you can modify the details of your order. There is a detailed description of the purchase process in the Shopping Guide. Also, if you are a registered user, a record of all the orders placed by you is available in “My Account” area.
Payment can be made by Visa, Mastercard, American Express and Stripe.
To minimise the possibility of unauthorised access, your credit card details will be encrypted. By clicking “Authorise payment” you are confirming that the credit card is yours or that you are the legitimate holder of the gift card or the credit voucher card. Credit cards are subject to validation checks and authorisation by your card issuer, but if your card issuer fails to authorise payment to us, we will not be liable for any delay or non-delivery and may not be able to form a contract with you.
VALUE ADDED TAX
All purchases done through the web site are subject to the Value Added Tax (VAT).
The prices displayed on this website include VAT.
You may cancel your order for any reason up to 30 days from the date on which you receive the Delivery Confirmation, by notifying us of your decision to cancel using the following contact details: by using the contact form on our website, or by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org. To meet the cancellation deadline, it is sufficient for you to have sent your communication concerning your exercise of the right to cancel before the cancellation period has expired.
If you have been charged for any items, we will process a refund, which will include the cost of standard delivery to the original delivery address. Please refer to our Returns and Exchanges Policy in our Buying Guide for further information.
You do not have the right to cancel the Contract when it is for the delivery of any of the following three categories of “Excluded items”:
1. Items that have been made to your specifications or clearly personalised.
2. Sealed products, once they are unsealed/unwrapped after you have received them
3. Sealed items that are not suitable for return for health protection and hygiene reasons, and that have been unsealed after delivery, or if the hygiene label is no longer in place.
When you receive the items, you may handle them to establish their nature, characteristics and functioning. Acceptable handling of the items is that which would reasonably be allowed in a shop. Items should not have been damaged, soiled, washed, altered or worn (other than to try the item on) and any labels or tags must be intact. If your handling goes beyond what is acceptable and the items are damaged or diminished in value, we may deduct from the amount we reimburse to you, or you may be liable to us for, an amount equal to the diminished value of the items.
Please return the items using or including all their original packaging, instructions, and other documents, if any, accompanying the items.
To return an item:
a) Send an email to email@example.com to get the address where to send the items
After examining the items, we will inform you of whether you have the right to reimbursement of the amounts paid. Delivery costs will be reimbursed when the right of withdrawal is exercised within 14 days and all the items which the relevant parcel consisted of are returned. The refund will be paid as soon as possible and, in all cases, within 14 days from the date on which you notified us of your intention to cancel. Notwithstanding this, we may withhold the reimbursement until we have received the items back, or until you have supplied sufficient evidence of having sent back the items, whichever is the earlier. The refund will always be paid using the same payment means you used to pay for your purchase.
You are responsible for the cost and risk of returning the items to us, as indicated above.
If you have any questions, you can contact us by mail: firstname.lastname@example.org
Returns of defective items
If the item that you have received is defective, please notify us through the contact form on our website, or by emailing us at email@example.com, and return the item in accordance with the
Returns Methods described in a) or b). Please provide proof of purchase, for example a copy of the E-ticket attached to the Delivery Confirmation. We will examine the item and if we deem it to be defective, we will provide a full refund including delivery charges, and the refund will be paid using the same means of payment that you originally used to pay for your purchase. These provisions do not limit any applicable statutory rights.
RIGHT OF WITHDRAWAL
You have the right to withdraw from your order within 14 days, without giving any reason, although please note you have no right to withdraw items that are classed as ‘Excluded Items’ as mentioned above. The withdrawal period is counted from the day of the delivery of the last item(s) in your order.
The easiest way to exercise your right of withdrawal is to contact us through the contact form on our website, or by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org, and returning the goods to us using one of the
returns methods described above.
However, to meet the withdrawal deadline, it is sufficient for you to let us know about your decision to withdraw from your order before the withdrawal period has expired.
You may also use the model cancellation form as set out in the Appendix to these terms, although it is not obligatory.
Effects of withdrawal
We will refund all payments received from you, including the costs of our standard delivery option to the original delivery address, without undue delay and in any event no later than 14 days from the day on which we are informed about your decision to withdraw. We will use the same means of payment that you used to pay for your order and this will not cause you any extra fees.
We may withhold the refund until we have received the items back, or you have supplied evidence of having sent back the items, whichever is the earlier.
You must send back the items or hand them over to us without undue delay, and in any event no later than 14 days from the day on which we are informed about your decision to withdraw. Please use one of the returns methods described above. If you do not use one of these returns methods, you will need to bear the cost of returning the items to us.
You are only liable for any diminished value of the items resulting from their handling, other than that which is necessary to establish the nature, characteristics and functioning of the items.
LIABILITY AND DISCLAIMERS
Nothing in these Terms shall exclude or limit in any way our liability:
a. For death or personal injury caused by our negligence; b. For fraud or fraudulent misrepresentation; or
b. For any matter for which it would be illegal or unlawful for us to exclude or limit, or attempt to exclude or limit, our liability.
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, but we are not responsible for any loss or damage that is not foreseeable. 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, if you discussed it with us during the sales process.
We are not liable for business losses. We only supply the items for domestic and private use. If you use the items 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.

However, you may transfer our guarantee in respect of defective products, which is stated in clause 15, to a person who has acquired the item. We may require the person to whom the guarantee is transferred to provide reasonable evidence that they are now the owner of the relevant item or property, for example by providing proof of purchase or producing a letter or chain of letters from the original Purchaser and subsequent Purchasers (where appropriate) transferring the benefit of the guarantee to the new owner of the property in question.
We may transfer, assign, charge, sub-contract or otherwise dispose of a Contract, or any of our rights or obligations arising under it, at any time during the term of the Contract. For the avoidance of doubt, any such transfer, assignment, charge or other disposition will not affect your statutory rights as a consumer or your rights under the Contract or cancel, reduce or otherwise limit any warranty or guarantee which may have been provided by us to you, whether express or implied.
EVENTS OUTSIDE OUR CONTROL
We will not be liable or responsible for any failure to perform, or delay in performance of, any of our obligations under a Contract that is caused by events outside our reasonable control.

f. Any shipping, postal or other relevant transport strike, failure or accidents. Our performance under any Contract is deemed to be suspended for the period that any event outside our control continues, and we will have an extension of time for performance for the duration of that period. We will use our reasonable endeavours to bring the event outside our control to a close or to find a solution by which our obligations under the Contract may be performed despite the event outside our control.
If we fail, at any time during the term of the Contract, to insist upon strict performance of any of your obligations under the Contract or any of these terms and conditions, or if we fail to exercise any of the rights or remedies to which we are entitled under the Contract, this shall not constitute a waiver of such rights or remedies and shall not relieve you from compliance with such obligations. A waiver by us of any default shall not constitute a waiver of any subsequent default arising from the Contract or the Terms. No waiver by us of any of these Terms shall be effective unless it is expressly stated to be a waiver and is communicated to you in writing in accordance with the paragraph on Notices above.
If any of these Terms or any provisions of the Contract are determined by any competent authority to be invalid, unlawful or unenforceable to any extent, such term, condition or provision will to that extent be severed from the remaining terms, conditions and provisions which will continue to be valid to the fullest extent permitted by law.
