5. Prices and VAT
Our prices, as stated on our website, are in pound sterling (£) and include VAT, where applicable. You will be charged in pounds sterling even if you don't live in the UK. We reserve the right to alter prices at any time. Where you have requested delivery to a UK or EU address, the price paid for the product will usually include VAT at the applicable rate, and the applicable amount of VAT will be shown on your email sales notification.
If you have requested delivery to a non-EU address, the products will normally be zero-rated and not subject to UK VAT, however the total amount charged for your order will not change.
Products delivered to destinations outside the EU may be subject to taxes, fees, levies or other charges as a result of local legislation or customs formalities and we advise that you check the import charges applicable in any non-EU country before ordering products to be delivered there.
The recipient of the order is responsible for all customs formalities for the import of the products and will be required to pay any additional charges for international delivery, including import duty, formal customs entry, taxes, levies and other charges that may be levied outside the EU. The recipient of the products, not the person placing the order, will receive a separate request for payment of these charges. If you are ordering products to be delivered to someone else, please ensure they are made aware that they will be responsible for these additional charges.
You (or the recipient of the products if different) will be the importer for all international deliveries of the products. Therefore, before placing an order, it's your responsibility to check that any products ordered comply with state and federal government import regulations, and that there are no local requirements or restrictions which may affect receipt of your order.
7. Cancellations and Returns
We aim to dispatch orders within one working day. If you want to cancel an order without incurring a cost for returning unwanted items to us, you will need to do it before your order is dispatched. If you do cancel an order, please call us on 01304 80 50 90 or via e-mail to email@example.com If you would like to change anything about an order, we would recommend that, in the first instance, you give us a call or email us.
You have a legal right to cancel a contract which starts from the date we confirm your order has been dispatched, which is when the contract between us is formed.
You can return products by sending them to our Returns Address below. Unless the products are faulty or not as described, you will be responsible for the cost of returning them to us. You have a legal obligation to keep the products in your possession and to take reasonable care of the products while they are in your possession.
Where the products have already been delivered to you, we will process the refund due to you as soon as possible and, in any case, within 7 calendar days after the day on which we receive the returned products.
We have a legal duty to supply products that conform with the descriptions and specifications in the contract between you and us. As a consumer, you will always have legal rights in relation to products that are faulty or not as described which are not affected by your cancellation rights above. If you have returned the products to us because they are faulty or mis-described, we will refund the price of a defective product in full, any applicable delivery charges, and any reasonable costs you incur in returning the item to us.
