4. How we use your personal information
5. Our contract with you
5.1 By placing an order for Products through our site you warrant that you have legal capacity under applicable law to enter into a binding Contract.
5.2 Our shopping pages will guide you through the steps you need to take to place an order with us. Our order process allows you to check and amend any errors before submitting your order to us. Please take the time to read and check your order at each page of the order process.
5.3 After you place an order, you will receive an e-mail from us acknowledging that we have received your order. However, please note that this does not mean that your order has been accepted. Our acceptance of your order will take place as described in clause 5.4.
5.4 We will confirm our acceptance to you by sending you an e-mail (Dispatch Confirmation). The Contract between us will only be formed when we send you the Dispatch Confirmation.
5.5 If we are unable to supply you with a Product, for example because that Product is not in stock or no longer available or because of an error in the price on our site as referred to in clause 11.5 or because the content you provide in respect of Bespoke Products (as defined in clause 7.2) does not meet our requirements set out in these Terms, we will inform you of this by e-mail and we will not process your order. If you have already paid for the Products, we will refund you the full amount including any delivery costs charged as soon as possible.
6. Our right to vary these Terms
6.1 We amend these Terms from time to time. Please look at the beginning of these Terms above to see when they were last updated.
6.2 Every time you order Products from us, the Terms in force at the time of your order will apply to the Contract between you and us.
6.3 We may revise these Terms as they apply to your order from time to time to reflect changes in relevant laws and regulatory requirements.
6.4 If we have to revise these Terms as they apply to your order, we will contact you to give you reasonable advance notice of the changes and let you know how to cancel the Contract if you are not happy with the changes. You may cancel either in respect of all the affected Products or just the Products you have yet to receive. If you opt to cancel, you will have to return (at our cost) any relevant Products you have already received and we will arrange a full refund of the price you have paid, including any delivery charges.
7. Your consumer right of return and refund
7.1 If you are a consumer in the European Economic Area (EEA), you have a legal right to cancel a Contract, subject to clause 7.2, during the period set out below in clause 7.3. This means that during the relevant period if you change your mind or decide for any other reason that you do not want to receive or keep a Product, you can notify us of your decision to cancel the Contract and receive a refund. Advice about your legal right to cancel the Contract is available from your local Citizens' Advice Bureau or Trading Standards office.
7.2 The cancellation right provided for in this clause 7 does not apply to Products that are made to order to your specification or are personalised, including without limitation customised mobile phone covers made in accordance with your instructions (Bespoke Products).
7.3 Your legal right to cancel a Contract starts from the date of the Dispatch Confirmation (the date on which we e-mail you to confirm our acceptance of your order), which is when the Contract between us is formed. Your deadline for cancelling the Contract then depends on what you have ordered and how it is delivered, as set out in the table below:
End of the cancellation period
Your Contract is for a single Product (which is not delivered in instalments on separate days).
The end date is the end of 14 days after the day on which you receive the Product.
Example: if we provide you with a Dispatch Confirmation on 1 January and you receive the Product on 10 January you may cancel at any time between 1 January and the end of the day on 24 January.
Your Contract is for multiple Products which are delivered on separate days.
The end date is 14 days after the day on which you receive the last of the separate Products ordered.
Example: if we provide you with a Dispatch Confirmation on 1 January and you receive the first of your separate Products on 10 January and the last instalment or last separate Product on 15 January you may cancel in respect of all instalments and any or all of the separate Products at any time between 1 January and the end of the day on 29 January.
7.4 To cancel a Contract under this clause 7, you just need to let us know that you have decided to cancel within the relevant timescale set out in clause 7.3. The easiest way to inform us of your decision to cancel your Contract is by cancelling your order through your registered account on our site or by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org
. If you inform us of your decision to cancel by email or through your registered account on our site, we will e-mail you to confirm we have received your cancellation. We do not recommend that you inform us of your decision to cancel through any of our online social media accounts, as we cannot guarantee that your request will be seen by our customer service team. If you cancel your Contract, please include details of your order to help us to identify it. If you send us your cancellation notice by e-mail or through your registered account, then your cancellation is effective from the date you send us the notice. For example, you will have given us notice in time as long as you do so before midnight on the last day of the cancellation period.
7.5 If you cancel your Contract under this clause 7, we will refund you the price you paid for the Products. However, please note we are permitted by law to reduce your refund to reflect any reduction in the value of the Products, if this has been caused by your handling them in a way which would not be permitted in a shop. We offer standard delivery (by Royal Mail 1st class post or by standard airmail as applicable) free of charge. Please note that if you choose to have any Products delivered by any enhanced delivery method at an additional cost, you will not receive a refund of the cost of such enhanced delivery.
7.6 We will make any refunds due to you as soon as possible and in any event within the deadlines indicated below:
(i) if you have received the Product, 14 days after the day on which we receive the Product back from you or, if earlier, the day on which you provide us with evidence that you have sent the Product back to us. For information about how to return a Product to us, see clause 7.8; or
(ii) if you have not received the Product, 14 days after you inform us of your decision to cancel the Contract.
7.7 We will refund you on the credit card or debit card used by you to pay.
7.8 If a Product has been delivered to you before you decide to cancel your Contract:
(a) then you must return it to us without undue delay and in any event not later than 14 days after the day on which you let us know that you wish to cancel the Contract. You can return it to us at C1 Barrow Close, Whitehills Business Park, Blackpool, Lancashire, FY4 5PS;
(b) unless the Product is faulty or not as described (in this case, see clause 8), you will be responsible for the cost of returning the Products to us.
8. Faulty or mis-described Products
8.1 We are under a legal duty to supply Products that are in conformity with your Contract and these Terms.
8.2 As a consumer, you have legal rights in relation to goods that are faulty or not as described. These legal rights are not affected by your right of return and refunds set out in clause 7 or anything else in these Terms.
8.3 If you consider that any Product we have supplied is faulty or mis-described, please notify us by email at email@example.com
and include a photograph of the faulty or mis-described Product.
8.4 If any Products you have purchased from us are faulty or mis-described, provided you return such Products to us if requested in accordance with our reasonable instructions we will refund the price of the Products in full, together with any applicable delivery charges, and the reasonable costs you incur in returning the Products to us.
8.5 Advice about your legal rights is available from your local Citizens' Advice Bureau or Trading Standards office. Nothing in these Terms will affect these legal rights.
9.1 We will contact you with an estimated delivery date, which will be within 30 days after the date of the Dispatch Confirmation (the date on which we e-mail you to confirm our acceptance of your order) unless we agree otherwise or the delivery address is outside the EEA in which case a later delivery date may apply. Occasionally our delivery to you may be affected by an Event Outside Our Control. See clause 16 for our responsibilities when this happens.
9.2 If no one is available at your address to take delivery, we will leave you a note that the Products are being held at your nearest postal depot or have been returned to our premises, in which case, please contact us to rearrange delivery.
9.3 Delivery of an order shall be completed when we deliver the Products to the address you gave us in accordance with your instructions and the Products will be your responsibility from that time.
9.4 You own the Products once we have received payment in full, including all applicable delivery charges, and they have been delivered to you.
9.5 If we miss the applicable delivery deadline for any Products then you may cancel your Order straight away if any of the following apply:
(a) we have refused to deliver the Products;
(b) delivery 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.
9.6 If you do not wish to cancel your order straight away, or do not have the right to do so under clause 9.5, you can give us a new deadline for delivery, which must be reasonable, and you can cancel your order if we do not meet the new deadline.
9.7 If you do choose to cancel your order for late delivery under clause 9.5 or clause 9.6, you can do so for just some of the Products or all of them, unless splitting them up would significantly reduce their value. If the Products have been delivered to you, you will have to return them to us or allow us to collect them, and we will pay the costs of this. After you cancel your order we will refund any sums you have paid to us for the cancelled Products and their delivery.
