your submission of an order amounts to an offer to enter a contract to buy the products from us; you cannot then withdraw or cancel your order except as specifically stated in these terms and conditions.

no order is accepted from you until our website displays an order confirmation message. this message is displayed after you have completed your purchase and a receipt is sent to you by email as confirmation of your order.

we reserve the right to refuse to process or cancel your order where your payment method has been flagged for suspicious activity. you agree to compensate us in full for all reasonable costs and expenses (including legal costs) in obtaining payments that not been made in accordance with these terms and conditions.

 

VAT.

we are a VAT registered business and our VAT registration number is ‍315 997 661. we charge VAT on all orders including the cost of shipping that are shipped to addresses in the UK and European Union (EU). we do not charge VAT on orders that are shipped to an address outside the UK or EU.

 

DELIVERY.

these terms and conditions incorporate our returns policy and returns procedure which can be found here.

additional shipping charges will apply to your order at checkout based on what you order, the quantity that you order and your address.

we aim to dispatch all orders within 2 business days, however processing times may vary. we cannot guarantee delivery on a specific day and will not be held liable for delays outside of our control. all shipping times displayed on our website are estimates only and you agree that you will not hold us responsible for delivery delays.

at this time we don’t offer express postage or alternative postage services for environmental reasons.

we typically use local postal services to deliver our products, and proof of delivery is not obtained. once the product has been properly dispatched and us under the control of the local postal services.

if there will be a change to your delivery date due to an issue with product availability, or other issue prior to the product being dispatched, we will contact you and provide a revised estimated delivery date.

unfortunately we are unable to deliver to the UAE, Hong Kong, China, Japan, Australia and New Zealand. if you place an order from one of these locations, your order will be refunded in full.

 

UNDELIVERED PRODUCTS.

if you think a product hasn’t been delivered, please check with your local postal provider to see if they’re holding it. if you’re a UK customer, this is likely to be your local Royal Mail delivery office (https://www.royalmail.com/delivery-and-collection-office-finder).

you must report all lost or undelivered items online within 7 days of the expected last day of delivery shown in your confirmation email.

to notify us of an undelivered product, please contact us.

if you change address after placing an order, you need to tell us immediately to ensure that your order is not sent out to the wrong address. please ensure that you inform us immediately as you will not be refunded or credited for any products posted to the address that you specified during checkout if you didn’t let us know before the product was sent.

we reserve the right to not accept orders from you if it becomes apparent that, in our sole opinion, the postal service in your area is too unreliable.

if an order of yours is returned to us by the delivery courier for whatever reason (including but not limited to: delivery was not attempted due to force majeure or any circumstances beyond our control, delivery was attempted but no one was available to claim the delivery, delivery was not possible or the delivery address you entered at checkout was incorrect or does not exist), then a re-delivery charge equal to the original shipping price for your order will apply.

if you are dissatisfied with any product you receive from us, please contact us.

 

FAULTY, DEFECTIVE AND DAMAGED PRODUCTS.

if any of our products are inherently defective or damaged in transit to you, then subject to us agreeing that the relevant product is defective or has been damaged in transit, we will provide you with a replacement, or if the same product is unavailable or a refund.

we will bear the delivery costs incurred by you in returning the defective or damaged product to us as long as you provide us with documentary evidence supporting those delivery costs prior to sending the product and provided we agree that the product is defective or damaged.

we make no warranties or claims whatsoever about (e-co)mmerce mailers after their best before date has elapsed, which is 12 months from the date of their manufacture. we strongly recommend that all (e-co)mmerce mailers are thoroughly tested before shipping after their best before date. customers use all expired (e-co)mmerce mailers at their own risk.

 

CHANGING YOUR MIND.

although we discourage change of mind returns due to their environmental impact, you have the legal right to change your mind within 14 days of receipt of your order and obtain a full refund from us. (e-co)mmerce mailers are a perishable product with an expiry date, just like fruits and vegetables. for this reason, we can’t accept returns more than 14 days after your purchase is delivered.

when you’re returning (e-co)mmerce mailers because you’ve changed your mind or ordered the wrong size, you’ll be responsible for all shipping costs and ensuring that your order is returned to us undamaged. if your return arrives damaged or doesn’t arrive at all, you won’t be issued a refund.

we will process your refund as soon as possible and in any case no more than:

  1. 14 days from the day that:
    1. your return is received by us; or
    2. you provide evidence that your return has been delivered to us; or
  2. if you cancel your order before we ship it, within 14 days from the day on which you inform us about your decision to cancel your order.

confirmation of your order of a pre-order product does not guarantee availability of the product but represents your offer to buy the product when it is generally released for sale. we reserve the right not to accept your offer at our sole discretion. your offer is only accepted once we advise you that we have posted the pre-ordered product to you.

when you place a pre-order you will need to pay the full upfront price of the product (subject to any discounts or offers that we may offer from time to time at our sole discretion). you may cancel your pre-order and get a full refund of your pre-order payment at any time before 14 days after the product is delivered to you.

pre-orders will be shipped to you as soon as is practicable, subject to availability, in order that you may receive them as soon as possible after their release date. depending on your delivery address, delivery may take longer for you than other customers and it is possible that other customers who order pre-order products after they are released for general sale may receive their orders before you.

all release dates and anticipated postage dates listed by us are subject to change. as a result, we cannot be liable for any changes to release dates or anticipated postage dates or pre-order windows advertised by us. if you have made a pre-order and the release date or anticipated postage date of the product you have pre-ordered changes by more than 5 business days, we will inform you via email as soon as practicable, giving you the opportunity to cancel your pre-order and get a full refund of your payment.
