2.1.1 you are legally capable of entering into binding contracts; and
2.1.2 you are at least 18 years old;
3 HOW THE CONTRACT IS FORMED BETWEEN YOU AND US
3.1 After placing an order, you will receive an email from us acknowledging that we have received your order. Please note that this does not mean that your order has been accepted. Your order constitutes an offer to us to buy Goods. All orders are subject to acceptance by us and we will confirm acceptance to you by sending you an email that confirms that the Goods have been dispatched (the Dispatch Confirmation). The contract between us (Contract) will only be formed when we send you the Dispatch Confirmation.
3.2 The Contract will relate only to those Goods whose dispatch we have confirmed in the Dispatch Confirmation. We will not be obliged to supply any other Goods which may have been part of your order until the dispatch of such Goods has been confirmed in a separate Dispatch Confirmation.
4 OUR STATUS
4.1 Please note that in some cases, we accept orders as agents on behalf of third party sellers. The resulting legal contract is between you and that third party seller, and is subject to the terms and conditions of that third party seller, which they will advise you of directly. You should carefully review their terms and conditions applying to the transaction.
4.2 We may also provide links on our site to the websites of other companies, whether affiliated with us or not. We cannot give any undertaking, that products you purchase from third party sellers through our site, or from companies to whose website we have provided a link on our site, will be of satisfactory quality, and any such warranties are DISCLAIMED by us absolutely. This DISCLAIMER does not affect your statutory rights against the third party seller. We will notify you when a third party is involved in a transaction, and we may disclose your customer information related to that transaction to the third party seller.
5 CONSUMER RIGHTS
5.1 If you are contracting as a consumer, you may cancel a Contract at any time within seven working days, beginning on the day after you received the Goods. In this case, you will receive a full refund of the price paid for the Goods in accordance with our refunds policy (set out in clause 9 below).
5.2 To cancel a Contract, you must inform us in writing. You must also return the Goods to us immediately (informing us in writing of your intention to return the Goods prior to postage). Failure to inform us in writing of your intention to return the Goods prior to postage may result in a delay in the process under clause 9.
5.3 Upon us receiving notification of your intention to return the Goods, we shall contact you with further instructions on how to proceed with your return.
5.4 You must return the Goods in the same condition in which you received them and at your own cost and risk (we recommend that the Goods be returned via recorded and/or special delivery). The returned Goods should be in their original packaging, in unused and resalable condition and should be accompanied by all corresponding order details. You have a legal obligation to take reasonable care of the Goods while they are in your possession. If you fail to comply with this obligation, we may have a right of action against you for compensation.
5.5 You will not have any right to cancel a Contract for the supply of any Goods constituting underwear.
5.6 Details of this statutory right, and an explanation of how to exercise it, are provided in the Dispatch Confirmation. This provision does not affect your statutory rights.
6 AVAILABILITY AND DELIVERY
Your order will be fulfilled by the delivery date set out in the Dispatch Confirmation or, if no delivery date is specified, then within a reasonable time of the date of the Dispatch Confirmation, unless there are exceptional circumstances.
7 RISK AND TITLE
7.1 The Goods will be at your risk from the time of delivery.
7.2 Ownership of the Goods will only pass to you when we receive full payment of all sums due in respect of the Goods, including delivery charges.
8 PRICE AND PAYMENT
8.1 The price of any Goods will be as quoted on our site from time to time, except in cases of obvious error.
8.2 These prices exclude delivery costs, which will be added to the total amount due as set out in our Delivery Guide.
8.3 Prices are liable to change at any time, but changes will not affect orders in respect of which we have already sent you a Dispatch Confirmation.
8.4 Our site contains a large number of Goods and it is always possible that, despite our best efforts, some of the Goods listed on our site may be incorrectly priced. We will normally verify prices as part of our dispatch procedures so that, where the correct price of the Goods is less than our stated price, we will charge the lower amount when dispatching the Goods to you. If the correct price of the Goods is higher than the price stated on our site, we will normally, at our discretion, either contact you for instructions before dispatching the Goods, or reject your order and notify you of such rejection.
8.5 We are under no obligation to provide the Goods to you at the incorrect (lower) price, even after we have sent you a Dispatch Confirmation, if the pricing error is obvious and unmistakeable and could have reasonably been recognised by you as a mis-pricing.
8.6 Payment for all Goods must be paid via paypal, credit or debit card. We will not dispatch your order until payment for the goods is recieved in full.
9 REFUNDS POLICY
9.1 When you return Goods to us:
9.1.1 because you are a consumer and have cancelled the Contract between us within the seven-day cooling-off period (see clause 5.1), we will process the refund due to you as soon as possible and, in any case, within 30 days of the day you have given notice of your cancellation. In this case, we will refund the price of the Goods in full (except where an item is custom made via our bespoke service, no refund or exchange will be given). However, you will be responsible for the cost of returning the item to us;
9.1.2 for any other reason (for instance, because you have notified us in accordance with clause 20 that you do not agree to any changes in these terms and conditions or in any of our policies, or because you claim that the Goods are defective), we will examine the returned Goods and will notify you of your refund via email within a reasonable period of time. We will usually process the refund due to you as soon as possible and, in any case, within 30 days of the day we confirmed to you via email that you were entitled to a refund for the defective Goods. Goods returned by you because of a defect will be refunded in full, including a refund of the delivery charges for sending the item to you (provided that you have returned the item(s) to us by recorded and/or special delivery); and
9.1.3 Goods that have been personalised/bespoke/custom made will not be refunded or exchanged in any circumstances.
9.2 We will usually refund any money received from you using the same method originally used by you to pay for your purchase. Where payment has been made by paypal, credit or debit card, we will refund the payment to the paypal account, credit or debit card used to purchase the Goods.
