TERMS AND CONDITIONS RELATING TO SALES OF PRODUCTS

Information that we are required to give you

— A description of the main characteristics of the Products is contained on the Website and will also be contained in our Order Confirmation, described below.
— The price of Products (including delivery and packaging charges) and arrangements for payment are as described in these Terms.
— The arrangements for delivery of Products are as shown below.
— You have a right of cancellation as set out in these Terms.
— The language of the contract will be English.

CONTRACT

Your order shall constitute an offer to us to purchase the Products specified in the order. At the same time you shall complete an authorisation for us to recover, through your credit or debit card, payments due to us. We may accept or decline the order. Please note that acknowledgement of an order by us does not constitute acceptance of that order or that a contract has been made. We will confirm acceptance to you by email confirming that the order is accepted and that the Product is ready for dispatch or has been dispatched (“Order Confirmation”) at which point a contract will come into existence between you and us. We shall at the same time notify you of the identifying number (in these Terms the “Identifying Number”) for your order and it would be helpful if you can quote your Identifying Number in any subsequent communications.

We reserve the right at our discretion to decline to accept any order and/or to supply Products. This might be because the Product is out of stock, because we have identified an error in the price or description of the Product or because we are unable to meet a delivery deadline. If we are unable to accept your order, we will inform you of this and will not charge you for the Product, or, if you have already paid for the Product(s), we shall refund the payment.

If you have any difficulty completing an order please telephone +44 (0)20 7591 2250.

ENTIRE AGREEMENT

Each confirmed order shall constitute a separate contract between us and shall be governed by these Terms. These Terms constitute the entire understanding between us in relation to any Products ordered and supplied through the Website. They supersede any other terms stipulated by you, whether in any order or during negotiations or any course of dealing established between you and us.

All descriptions, images or illustrations of Products provided on this Website or otherwise communicated to you are for guidance only and intended merely to present a general idea of the Products. Although we have made every effort to display the colours accurately, we cannot guarantee that a device’s display of the colours accurately reflects the colour of the Products. Your Product may vary slightly from those images.

PRICE

The prices of the Products shall be as quoted on the Website from time to time, except in the case of obvious error. All prices on the Website are inclusive of United Kingdom VAT and packing and exclusive of postage/delivery. For items shipped outside of the EU VAT will be deducted from the price on confirmation of the shipping country. A summary of delivery charges and other relevant information can be found at our delivery and shipping information page.

The prices of the Products are given in both Pounds Sterling and Euros. Payment for the ordered Products may be made in either currency.

It is always possible that, despite our best efforts, some of the Products we sell may be incorrectly priced. We will normally check prices before accepting your order so that, where the Product’s correct price at your order date is less than our stated price at your order date, we will charge the lower amount. If the Product’s correct price at your order date is higher than the price stated, we will contact you for your instructions before we accept your order.

If we accept and process your order where a pricing error is obvious and unmistakable and could reasonably been recognised by you as mis-pricing, we may end the contract, refund you any sums you have paid and require the return of any Products provided to you.

Please note that only the following credit cards are accepted for payment:

— Visa (including Delta and Electron);
— Mastercard (including Maestro and JCB);
— Switch (including Switch Solo); and
— American Express.

You must pay for the Products before we dispatch them. We will not charge your credit or debit card until we dispatch the Products to you.

DELIVERY

We shall deliver Products ordered by you through a courier or postal service of our choice to the delivery address that you have given us.

We deliver within the UK, EU and internationally. Please note we do not deliver to Japan, South Korea or PO Box or BFPO addresses. For Japanese orders please visit our Japan website and for South Korean orders please visit our South Korean website.

Please note that customs, duty and import fees (including tariffs and tax) (“Fees”) may apply if your Products are shipped to a destination outside of the European Union. These Fees are not included in our delivery charges. Our Products are delivered duty unpaid. This means that we are responsible for transportation costs in the delivery of the Products (in accordance with the delivery charges set out below), but not for paying any Fees relating to your Product which are imposed at the destination. You are responsible for paying all such Fees directly to the relevant authorities.

When a parcel is delivered you will be asked to sign for it as proof of receipt. If you are not there, a card will be dropped through your door stating how to get your parcel.

Risk of loss or damage to the Products shall pass to you at the time of delivery.

DELIVER TO SHOP

For our UK and European stores we provide a free of charge in-store collection service. This option can be selected when you proceed to place your order through the Website.

If you authorise somebody else to collect the Products from our shop on your behalf, they will also be required to present the information above. Please note, the valid photo ID required is yours not the person collecting the order.

If you wish to return your collected Products, you may do so in the store which you collected the Products from. You may alternatively exchange your Products for items available in the store which you collected the Products from. Refunds (including part-exchange/part-refund, if applicable) cannot be issued in store and will be processed via our Website within 7 days of return.

Your right of cancellation described in this section is in addition to any other right that you might have to reject the Products, for instance because they are faulty (see below).

If you have any questions or complaints about the Product, or if your Product is faulty, please contact us by calling our customer service team at +44 (0)20 7591 2255 or emailing us at shop@margarethowell.co.uk.

If what you have bought is faulty you may have a legal right to end the contract (or to get the Product repaired or replaced or to get some or all of your money back).

If when you receive your Product you discover a fault or it is not as described, you have 30 days from receipt of the Product to return the Product to us and receive a refund.

If a fault occurs in the Product after 30 days of receipt of the Product, we will offer you an exchange (for the equivalent amount) or if we can we will repair the Product.

RETURNS POLICY

If you exercise your right to cancel your contract with us in accordance with these Terms, we will refund you the price you paid for the Products, including standard delivery costs, by the method you used for payment. However, we may make deductions from the price, as described below.

If you are exercising your right to change your mind:

(a) We may reduce your refund of the price (excluding delivery costs) to reflect any reduction in the value of the Products, if this has been caused by your handling them in a way which would not be permitted in a shop. You are entitled to inspect the Products after delivery. However, you must take reasonable care of the Products and not let them out of your possession. If we refund you the price paid before we are able to inspect the Products and later discover you have handled them in an unacceptable way, you must pay us an appropriate amount.

(b) The maximum refund for delivery costs will be the costs of delivery by the least expensive delivery method we offer. For example, if we offer delivery of a product within 2 – 3 working days at one cost but you choose to have the Product delivered within 24 hours at a higher cost, then we will only refund what you would have paid for the cheaper delivery option.

If you are exercising your right to change your mind then your refund will be made within 14 days from the day on which we receive the Product back from you or, if earlier, the day on which you provide us with evidence that you have sent the Product back to us.

If you are returning a faulty Product for a refund in accordance with these Terms, we will refund you the price you paid for the Products, including standard delivery costs, by the method you used for payment.  Your refund will be made within 14 days of us agreeing that you are entitled to a refund.
