Why we have terms and conditions ("T&Cs")
- they contain the rules which apply to your use of the Site, including material you might upload to the blog and in reviews;
- they set out all the rules which apply to your purchase of a Product; and
- they contain information which we need to tell you, for example your rights under the Consumer Contracts Regulations.
- If you use the Site, purchase a Product or upload any material onto the Site, you are confirming to us that you agree to the then current T&Cs. They are legally binding on us both.
The steps required by you to enter into a contract with us are that you place your order for the products by clicking on the pay now button at the end of the checkout process once your product information, payment details and personal information have been submitted. You will be guided through the ordering process by our website and its instructions. Please take time to ensure that your order details are correct.
Once you have submitted an order, we will send you an acknowledgment email detailing the products you have ordered. This email acts simply as an acknowledgment that your order has been submitted and will be processed by us, not that the order is confirmed or accepted.
Please note all orders are subject to stock availability. We will inform you by email as soon as possible if the product you have ordered is not in stock. We will not take payment from you until the product is ready for dispatch. If you have already paid for the product and it is not in stock, we will refund you the amount you have paid.
Your order will be accepted and confirmed by us when the products have been dispatched. A further email will be sent to you when your ordered products have been dispatched. The contract between you and us will only be formed once you have received an email confirming dispatch of the order.
Non-acceptance of an order may arise from a number of reasons including (but not limited to):-
- not being able to take payment from you;
- a pricing or product description error on our behalf;
- you not meeting any eligibility criteria;
- unavailability of stock;
- if we reasonably consider that you intend to re-sell the products on a commercial basis; or
- attempting to purchase more than four products of any type of product within a single order.
Please note we will not file a copy of the contract between us.
Pricing and Payment
The prices of the products will be as quoted on our website from time to time. We take all reasonable care to ensure that the prices of products are correct at the time when the information was entered onto the system.
We will normally check prices as part of our dispatch procedures. If the products are incorrectly priced, then where the product’s correct price is less than the price stated on our website, we will charge the lower amount. However, please note that if the pricing error is obvious and unmistakeable and could reasonably have been recognised by you as mispricing, we do not have to provide the products to you at the incorrect (lower) price.
Where the product’s correct price is higher than the price stated on our website, we will contact you in writing as soon as possible to inform you of this error. We will give you the option of continuing to purchase the product at the correct price or cancelling the order. We will not process the order until we have your instructions. If we are unable to contact you within seven (7) calendar days using the personal information you provided to us, we will treat the order as cancelled and notify you in writing.
The price of the product does not include delivery charges. Our delivery charges are as quoted on our website from time to time.
You can only pay for your products by using a debit card, credit card, PayPal, or Klarna. The cards we accept are shown at the time of ordering.
Please view our Klarna FAQ’s for more information.
Payment for the products and all delivery charges is in advance. However, we will not charge your debit or credit card until immediately before we dispatch the order.
We will aim to deliver your order by the estimated delivery date set out on the website or our emails to you regarding a service, unless there is an event outside our reasonable control .
If we’re unable to meet the estimated delivery date due to any act or event beyond our reasonable control such as (but not limited to) natural disasters, floods, earthquakes, epidemic, IT failures or attacks, strikes, late deliveries by couriers or other delivery organisations, civil commotion, terrorist attacks or threats of such terrorist attacks, impossibility or delays resulting from using railways, shipping, aircraft, motor transport or other means of transport, then we will inform you of a revised estimated delivery date. You will have the right to cancel your order and to be refunded if you are not happy with the revised estimated delivery date.
Delivery will be completed when we attempt to deliver the products to you or a person identified by you to the address you gave to us or other address or location which is agreed between you and our courier.
The products will be your responsibility from the completion of delivery being attempted.
You will own the products when we have received payment in full for the products, including any delivery charges.
You will be liable to pay for any customs and duty charges
Delivery within UK
Please note that we deliver only within the United Kingdom. You may place an order if you live outside the United Kingdom, but this order must be for delivery to an address in the United Kingdom. United Kingdom means England, Wales, Scotland, Northern Ireland, Guernsey, Jersey, Isles of Scilly and Isle of Man. Please note that delivery will take longer where the items are delivered to more remote destinations.
We are currently unable to offer international delivery, PO Box delivery, delivery to hotel addresses or British Forces Post Office delivery.

We’re sorry that we cannot make changes or cancel an order once you have placed it. If you wish to return an item or are not happy with an item, please return it using the Returns Process. It is your responsibility to return the item to us.

Unless they are faulty, all products must be returned in a re-saleable condition. This means the product and its packaging, labels and tags are undamaged and unused. We will not accept worn, damaged, altered or used goods. We reserve the right to reduce the amount of monies refunded (up to the value of the contract price) where the value of the goods are diminished from your handling of the goods which goes beyond what is necessary to establish the nature, characteristics and functioning of the goods. We shall evaluate the condition of the product by considering if your handling goes beyond that which might reasonably be allowed in a shop and the general wear of the product.
If we have to contact you or give you notice in writing, we will do so by email or by post to the address you provide to us when ordering the products..
FAULTY OR INCORRECT ITEMS RECEIVED
If the item you received is faulty or if you have received an incorrect item to which you ordered, please contact our customer service team to use the same returns method as described above. Please mark the return reason as faulty for faulty items and not as described for items that were not correct as per your order.
Any refund made will be made on the credit card or debit card used at the time of ordering the products or services or by PayPal. Refunds will usually be processed within five (5) working days of products being received back or us accepting a cancellation for services.
If the product is faulty or not as described, your legal rights are not affected by the above returns policy. Please say if you consider the products are faulty or not as described.

Our Rights to Make Changes

We accept no liability for any losses or damages arising out of or in connection with our breach of these terms or our failure to use reasonable skill and care to provide services which are not reasonably foreseeable.
