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 www.adviceguide.org.uk or call 03454 04 05 06.

The Consumer Rights Act 2015 says products must be as described, fit for purpose and of satisfactory quality. During the expected lifespan of your product your legal rights entitle you to the following:

up to 30 days: if your products are faulty, then you can get an immediate refund.

up to six months: if your products can't be repaired or replaced, then you're entitled to a full refund, in most cases.

up to six years: if your products do not last a reasonable length of time you may be entitled to some money back.

                 

12            PRICE AND PAYMENT

12.1        Where to find the price for the product. The price of the product (which includes VAT) will be the price as set out on the Website or as indicated at one of our pop-up shops. The price online and in person should be identical. We take all reasonable care to ensure that the price of the product advised to you is correct. However please see Clause 12.2 for what happens if we discover an error in the price of the product you purchase.

12.2        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. If you place an order online for delivery and the product's correct price at your purchase date is different from the price stated to you, we may contact you for your instructions before we accept your order. If we accept and process your order for delivery 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 products provided to you.

12.3        When you must pay and how you must pay.

12.3.1     All payments are to be made through the Website through our third party payment provider Sage Pay. You must pay for the products in full before we will dispatch them.

13            OUR RESPONSIBILITY FOR LOSS OR DAMAGE SUFFERED BY YOU

13.1        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 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.

13.2        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; for breach of your legal rights in relation to the products as summarised at Clause 11.2 and for defective products under the Consumer Protection Act 1987.

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

14            OTHER IMPORTANT TERMS

14.1        Nobody else has any rights under this contract. This contract is between you and us. No other person shall have any rights to enforce any of its terms.

14.2        If a court finds part of this contract illegal, the rest will continue in force. Each of the Clauses of these terms operates separately. If any court or relevant authority decides that any of them are unlawful, the remaining Clauses will remain in full force and effect.

14.3        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.

14.4        Which laws apply to this 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 products in the English courts. If you live in Scotland you can bring legal proceedings in respect of the products in either the Scottish or the English courts. If you live in Northern Ireland you can bring legal proceedings in respect of the products in either the Northern Irish or the English courts. If you live in Ireland, you can bring legal proceedings in respect of products in either the Irish or English courts. If you live in the Channel Islands, , you can bring legal proceedings in respect of products in either the courts in the Channel Islands or England.

14.5        Alternative dispute resolution. Alternative dispute resolution is a process where an independent body considers the facts of a dispute and seeks to resolve it, without you having to go to court. If you are not happy with how we have handled any complaint, you may want to contact an alternative dispute resolution provider we use. You can submit a complaint to ADR Group via their website at http://www.consumer-dispute.co.uk/.
