ORDER AND CONTRACT CREATION
We reserve the right to make delivery of the Goods by instalments. If the Goods are to be delivered in instalments, each delivery will constitute a separate contract.
Nothing in these Conditions shall operate to deny or limit any of your rights as a consumer by law. In the event of conflict between the terms of the Contract and any such rights, the latter shall prevail in favour of you as a buyer who does not purchase Goods in the course of any kind of business.
All Goods offered for sale are subject to availability and subject to our acceptance of the order. No order shall be deemed accepted by us unless and until it is confirmed unconditionally by us via email.
The technical steps required to create the Contract between us are as follows:
1. You place the order for your Products on the Website by adding the products to your basket and pressing the confirm order button at the end of the checkout process. You will be guided through the process of placing an order by a series of simple instructions on the Website.
2. You fill in all the details required to complete a purchase and make a payment. You shall be responsible for ensuring the accuracy of the details provided by you during the order process and we will not accept an order unless all details requested from you have been entered correctly.
3. We will send to you an order acknowledgement email detailing the products you have ordered. This is not an Order Confirmation. You should check that the details in this order acknowledgment are correct, and keep a copy of it.
4. You will receive an order dispatch confirmation for your order via email once your order has been shipped. The completion of the Contract will take place on the dispatch to you of the Goods ordered unless we have notified you that we do not accept your order, or you have cancelled it. The Contract will relate only to the Goods stated in the Order Confirmation. We will not be obliged to supply any other Goods which may have been in your order until you receive an e-mail confirming those goods.
You should check that the details in the Order Confirmation are correct, and keep a copy of it.
Non-acceptance of an order may be a result of one of the following:
The product you ordered being unavailable.
Our inability to obtain authorisation and confirmed receipt for your payment.
The identification of a pricing or product description error.
You not meeting the eligibility to order criteria set out in the Terms & Conditions.
The contract will be concluded in English.
DESCRIPTION OF PRODUCTS
Each product displayed for sale on the Website is subject to its product description which sets out additional Specific Conditions related to that Product; including, without limitation, terms and conditions concerning estimated delivery dates and times, warranties and returns eligibility.
We will take all reasonable care to ensure that all details, descriptions and prices of Goods appearing on the Website are correct at the time when the relevant information is entered onto the system. Although we aim to keep the Website as up to date as possible, the information, including Product Descriptions, appearing on this Website at a particular time may not always reflect the position exactly at the moment you place your order. We will notify you of any material changes to this information which shall be deemed to have been accepted by you unless we receive a notification in writing within 7 days upon notification. It is your responsibility to provide us with a valid e-mail address for such communications.
While we make every effort to provide accurate and helpful information, commentary and other materials posted on our Website are a guide only and not intended to amount to advice on which reliance should be placed. We therefore disclaim all liability and responsibility arising from any reliance placed on such materials by any visitor to our Website, or by anyone who may be informed of any of its contents.
“Order Price” means the price at which we have agreed to accept your order and is deemed inclusive of delivery charges and any VAT or other sales tax. “Delivery price” is quoted for delivery inIreland unless otherwise specified.
“Product Price” quoted on the Website is the sale price of the product that includes VAT or other sales tax which is chargeable on the sale of the Goods but exclude delivery costs and any costs related to importing products to a country outside the UK.
We reserve the right, by giving notice to you at any time before delivery or performance of our obligations to you, to change the price of the Goods to reflect any increase in the cost to us due to any factor beyond our control. In the unlikely event of this occurring, you shall be entitled to cancel the order at any time before delivery. Delivery prices are for Irish delivery only unless otherwise stated.
All prices on our Irish store will be displayed in Euro.
By placing an order you agree to payment being charged to your debit/credit card account or electronic payment account as provided on the order form before the shipment of the Goods. Payment can be made by any major credit or debit card or through an electronic payment account as explained on the order form. However, we do not accept the following: Diners Club, JCB, Laser, Discovery. When you pay for your order by card, we carry out certain checks which include obtaining authorisation from your card issuer to ensure you have adequate funds and for security reasons. This may involve validating your name, address and other personal information supplied by you during the order process against appropriate third party databases including the card issuer, registered credit reference agencies and fraud prevention agencies. By accepting these Conditions you confirm that all the details you provide to us for the purpose of purchasing the Goods are correct and that the payment card you are using is your own.
Payment will be taken out of your account before delivery of the goods.
We will take all reasonable care, in so far as it is in our power to do so, to keep the details of your order and payment secure, but in the absence of negligence on our part we cannot be held liable for any loss you may suffer if a third party procures unauthorised access to any data you provide when accessing or ordering from the Website.
The place for delivery of the Goods will be agreed between us and you during the checkout process, which may be an address other than billing address.
We offer standard delivery to anywhere in Ireland. We can, at our sole discretion, accept orders from individuals located outside Ireland and ship overseas subject to you paying for the additional shipping or postage costs. You will have an opportunity to cancel your order in case these costs are not acceptable.
Any dates quoted for delivery of the Goods are indicative only. Time for delivery will not be of the essence of the Contract and we will not be liable for any loss or expenses sustained by you arising from any delay in the delivery of the Goods however caused.
We comply with the Distance Selling Regulations. If no delivery dates are specified, the majority of orders will be delivered within 30 days of the original order date. However we cannot guarantee the delivery by the specified date.
You must inspect the Goods on delivery. If you are asked for your signature on delivery, you must examine the Goods before signing for it. A signature on that document will constitute conclusive evidence against you of receipt of the quantity of Goods indicated on that document free from any apparent defect or damage.
We reserve the right to deliver the Goods in instalments. If the Goods are to be delivered in instalments, each delivery will constitute a separate contract. You may not treat the Contract (as a whole) as repudiated if we fail to deliver any one or more of the instalments or if you have a claim in respect of any one or more of the instalments.
CANCELLING YOUR CONTRACT
You are entitled to cancel your order at any time prior receiving the Order Confirmation. After receiving the Order Confirmation you have a statutory right under the Customer Protection (Distance Selling) Regulations 2000 to cancel any order for Goods at any time prior receiving the Goods or up until seven working days after receiving them. If you exercise this statutory right to cancel and return the Goods in the original packaging with a copy of your invoice, we will provide a full refund on the price paid for the Goods and the original delivery charge. The following Goods are excluded from these regulations:
Newspapers, magazines and other periodicals
Bespoke or personalised goods
Unsealed audio and video material or software
Goods that deteriorate (such as food)
Services already begun with your consent
You shall also have the right to cancel an order for Goods in the case of faulty or defective Goods at the earliest opportunity after you have discovered the fault or defect – as long as the fault is not due to misuse (including use contrary to the manufacturer’s instructions) or normal wear and tear. In all cases of cancellation, the notification to us must be made in writing within seven working days (or 30 days in the case of faulty, defective or wrongly delivered goods) and should include the order number and details of the claim. Upon receiving your cancellation notice, we will contact you providing all relevant instructions. You must then immediately return the Goods to us at your own cost and risk. In the case of faulty, defective or wrongly delivered goods we will refund the cost of return postage provided you provide proof of postal cost. Your refund will be paid on safe arrival of the Goods at our Premises. For more information on returning Goods, please see our Refunds and Returns guide.
We may cancel the Contract in the unlikely event that the price and/or description of an item listed on the Website has been incorrectly advertised. We will not be under any obligation to provide those Goods to you. If we discover the error before sending an Order Confirmation, we will at our discretion, either reject your order and notify you of such rejection, or inform you as soon as possible and give you the option of cancelling your order or reconfirming it at the correct price and/or description. If we discover the error after sending you an Order Confirmation we may, at our discretion and without incurring any liability to you, cancel the Contract provided that the error is, in our reasonable opinion, obvious and unmistakable and could have reasonably been recognised by you. We will notify you if we cancel the Contract and you will receive a full repayment of the amount paid to us as full and final settlement of all and any claims you may have as against us for non-delivery.
RETURNS AND REFUNDS
All Goods which are returned by you to us must be returned with appropriate packaging and the original invoice. Since you are liable for damage to Goods due to insufficient packaging by you, the best option is to return them with the original packaging as supplied by us. The Goods must be in an unused condition (except only in the case of Goods which have been discovered upon use to be faulty) to ensure part or full refund in respect of such Goods. All returns need to be returned to the standard returns address provided on the delivery slip for a full refund to be possible. You will be liable for the costs of returning the Goods to us. Please retain a certificate of posting as proof of your return.
Your parcel is your responsibility until it reaches us, so we recommend using Registered Post. We cannot accept responsibility for parcels that get lost on the way to us.
In the case of faulty Goods, please ensure there is a copy of the postal cost receipt returned with the faulty item(s) so that we can reimburse this amount. Please do not return by courier as we will not accept full courier charges.
We will issue you with a refund for the price you paid for the Goods on receipt of the returned Goods and always within 30 working days of the notice of cancellation. Once processed, a refund may take up to 4 days to appear in your account.
In the case of a valid claim for faulty, defective or wrongly delivered Goods, we will refund to you the Order Price (or in the case of an order containing multiple items, the relative proportion of the Order Price) within 30 days. We will have no further liability to you in respect of the matters referred to in this condition.
In the event that we accept an order from you and that for reasons beyond our control we are unable to supply the Goods ordered by you then you will be offered a similar Good of equal or higher value or if preferred a full repayment of the amount paid to us as full and final settlement of all and any claims you may have as against us for non-delivery.
You accept that e-mail and other electronic communications can be used as a long-distance means of communication and acknowledge that all contracts, notices, information and other communications that we provide to you electronically comply with any legal requirement that such communications be in writing.
RISK AND PROPERTY
Risk of damage to or loss of the Goods will pass to you on receipt of delivery at the agreed address. Notwithstanding delivery and the passing of risk in the Goods, property in the Goods will not pass from us until we have received in cleared funds full payment of the Order Price and all other sums which are due, owing or payable by you to us in respect of the Contract or any other Contract between us and you.

Except as provided in this condition, we will not be liable to you for any indirect or consequential loss or damage, costs, expenses (including loss of data, reputation, office time or profit) or other claims for compensation whatsoever arising out of or in connection with the sale of the Goods or their use or resale by you.
