About you

By placing an order through our Site, you confirm that you are at least 18 years old and legally capable of entering into binding contracts, and that you fully understand and agree all of these terms and conditions insofar as they relate to you. You must bear the risks associated with use of the Internet.

In placing an order with us, it will be necessary for you to submit personal information. We take your privacy very seriously and will treat all of your personal information in accordance with UK data protection law. Additional information is detailed below in the Data Protection section of these terms.

How the contract is formed between you and us

How we will accept your order. After placing your order you will receive an email acknowledging that we have received your order. Our acceptance of your order will take place when we email you to confirm that your order has been  accepted and is being processed (“Process Confirmation”). A contract will come into existence between you and us when we issue the Process Confirmation.  Where you have placed an order for more than one product, the contract will only relate to those products for which we have issued a Process Confirmation.

If we cannot accept your order. If we are unable to accept your order, we will inform you of this and will not charge you for the product. This might be because the product is 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 product or because we are unable to meet a delivery deadline you have specified.

Worldwide Delivery

Providing the products

Delivery costs. The costs of delivery will be advised to you before you place your order.

When we will provide the products. During the order process we will let you know when we will provide the products to you. We will deliver products to you as soon as reasonably possible and in any event within 30 days after the day on which we issue the Process Confirmation.

We are not responsible for delays outside our control. If our supply of the products 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 minimise the effect of the delay. Provided we do this we will not be liable for delays caused by the event.

If you fail to accept a delivery or rearrange delivery after a failed attempt. If after a failed delivery 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.

Price and Payment

Where to find the price for the product. The price of the product (which includes VAT) will be the price indicated on the order pages when you placed your order.

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

What happens if we got the price wrong. It is always possible that, despite our best efforts, some of the products we sell may be incorrectly priced. We will normally check prices before accepting your order so that, where the product’s correct price at your order date is less than our stated price at your order date, we will charge the lower amount. If the product’s correct price at your order date is higher than the price stated to you, we will contact you for your instructions before we accept your order.

Products

Products may vary slightly from their pictures. The images of the products on our website are for illustrative purposes only. Although we have made every effort to display the colours accurately, we cannot guarantee that a device’s display of the colours accurately reflects the colour of the products. Your product may vary slightly from those images.

Product packaging may vary. The packaging of the product may vary from that shown in images on our website.

Making sure your measurements are accurate. If we are making the product to measurements you have given us you are responsible for ensuring that these measurements are correct. You can find information and tips on how to measure on our website or by contacting us.

Cancellation, returns & refunds

Your rights to make changes or cancel the order

Faulty goods. Check the products as soon as possible after you receive them. If you think a product is defective please contact us as soon as possible and in any event within 30 days of receipt of the product and we will arrange for the product to be inspected or collected for inspection to confirm any defect.

Our aggregate liability to you (whether in contract, tort or otherwise) for loss or damage shall in any event be limited to a sum equal to the amount paid by you for the Products in respect of one incident or a series of incidents attributable to the same cause. This does not affect your statutory rights as a consumer.

Our responsibility for loss or damage suffered by you

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 this 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 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; for breach of your legal rights in relation to the products.

We are not liable for business losses. We only supply the products for domestic and private use.

General

  1. How we may use your personal information

    How we will use your personal information. We will use the personal information you provide to us:(a)            to supply the products to you;

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

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

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

    Other important terms

    We may transfer this agreement to someone else. We may transfer our rights and obligations under these terms to another organisation You may only transfer your rights or your obligations under these terms to another person if we agree to this in writing.

    Nobody else has any rights under this contract (except someone you pass your guarantee on to). This contract is between you and us. No other person shall have any rights to enforce any of its terms.

    If a court finds part of this 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.

    Even if we delay in enforcing this 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 this 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 products, we can still require you to make the payment at a later date.

    Which laws apply to this contract. These terms are governed by Scottish law.
