For the Online Sale of Goods to Consumers
Updated Aug 2018
This website is operated by:
Design Brands Limited (referred to as "we/our/us") The Vine Works, Church Street, London, W4 2PD
Registered in England and Wales Company Number: 11403514
VAT Number: GB299607934
As user of this website (“site”) (referred to as "you/your") you acknowledge that any use of this site including any transactions you make ("use/using") is subject to our terms and conditions set out below.
These terms and conditions shall govern the sale and purchase of products through our website. This does not affect any statutory rights you may have as a consumer (such as rights under the Consumer Contracts (Information, Cancellation and Additional Charges) Regulations 2013 or the Consumer Rights Act 2015).
In these terms and conditions "we" means Design Brands Limited "you" means our customer or prospective customer, and "us", "our" and "your" should be construed accordingly.
3. ORDER PROCESS
No contract will come into force between you and us unless and until we accept your order in accordance with the procedure set out in this Section 3.
To enter into a contract through our website to purchase products from us, the following steps must be taken: you must add the products you wish to purchase to your shopping cart, and then proceed to the checkout; you will be transferred to our payment service provider's website, and our payment service provider will handle your payment; we will then send you an order confirmation and an email to notify you once the item has been shipped. We use Stripe integrated checkout systems, completely secure, PCI compliant and SSL enabled.
Our prices are quoted on our website.
We reserve the right to change the prices quoted on our website, but this will not affect contracts that have previously come into force.
All amounts stated in these terms and conditions or on our website are stated inclusive of VAT at the current rate.
It is possible that prices on the website may be incorrectly quoted; accordingly, we will verify prices as part of our sale procedures so that the correct price will be notified to you before the contract comes into force.
In addition to the price of the products, you will have to pay a delivery charge, which will be notified to you before the contract of sale comes into force.
You must, during the checkout process, pay the prices of the products you order.
Payments may be made by credit and debit cards including Visa/Mastercard/American Express.
If you fail to pay to us any amount due under these terms and conditions in accordance with the provisions of these terms and conditions, then we may withhold the products ordered and/or by written notice to you at any time cancel the contract of sale for the products.
If you make an unjustified credit card, debit card or other charge-back then you will be liable to pay us, within 7 days following the date of our written request:
(a) an amount equal to the amount of the charge-back;
(b) all third party expenses incurred by us in relation to the charge-back (including charges made by our or your bank or payment processor or card issuer);
(d) all our reasonable costs, losses and expenses incurred in recovering the amounts (including without limitation legal fees and debt collection fees)
and for the avoidance of doubt, if you fail to recognise or fail to remember the source of an entry on your card statement or other financial statement, and make a charge-back as a result, this will constitute an unjustified charge-back for the purposes of this Section.
Our policies and procedures relating to the delivery of products are set out in our delivery policy document.
7. DISTANCE CONTRACTS: CANCELLATION RIGHT
This Section 7 applies if and only if you offer to contract with us, or contract with us, as a consumer - that is, as an individual acting wholly or mainly outside your trade, business, craft or profession.
You may withdraw an offer to enter into a contract with us (without giving any reason for your withdrawal or cancellation) at any time upon the submission of your offer; and at the end of 14 days after the day on which the products come into your physical possession or the physical possession of a person identified by you to take possession of them.
If you cancel a contract on the basis described in this Section 7, you must send the products back to us or hand them over to us or a person authorised by us to receive them. You must comply with your obligations referred to in this Section 7 without undue delay and in any event not later than 14 days after the day on which you inform us of your decision to cancel the contract. You must pay the direct cost of returning the products.
If the value of the products returned by you is diminished by any amount as a result of the handling of those products by you beyond what is necessary to establish the nature, characteristics and functioning of the products, we may recover that amount from you up to the contract price. We may recover that amount by deducting it from any refund due to you or require you to pay that amount direct to us. Handling which goes beyond the sort of handling that might reasonably be allowed in a shop will be "beyond what is necessary to establish the nature, characteristics and functioning of the products" for these purposes.
We will refund money using the same method used to make the payment, unless you have expressly agreed otherwise. In any case, you will not incur any fees as a result of the refund.
Unless we have offered to collect the products, we will process a refund due to you as a result of a cancellation on the basis described in this Section 7 within the period of 14 days after the day on which we receive the returned products or (if earlier) after the day on which you supply to us evidence of having sent the products back. If we have not sent the products to you at the time of withdrawal or cancellation or have offered to collect the products, we will process a refund due to you without undue delay and, in any case, within the period of 14 days after the day on which we are informed of the withdrawal or cancellation.
You will not have any right to cancel a contract insofar as the contract relates to the supply of goods which are not suitable for return due to health protection or hygiene reasons.
