GENERAL INFORMATION ABOUT THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS
By placing an order with us you will be deemed to have read, understood and agreed to these Terms and Conditions (“Terms“). If you are unhappy with any aspect of these, then you should contact one of our customer service advisors before placing an order with us. This website and our Terms have been designed for use within the United Kingdom and under English law. Whilst we are happy to consider requests for products and enquiries from outside the United Kingdom, we give no warranty, express or implied, that the use of this website or the placing of any order through this website from outside the UK complies with any applicable non-English laws or regulations. Accordingly, any products or promotions not permitted under your local law are not offered to you. We amend these Terms from time to time. Please look at the top of this page to see when these Terms were last updated. Every time you order products from us, the Terms in force at the time of your order will apply to the contract between you and us. If we have to revise these Terms and this has a material impact on your order, we will contact you to give you reasonable advance notice of the changes and let you know how to cancel the contract if you are not happy with the changes.
PLACING AN ORDER
After you place an order, you will receive an e-mail from us acknowledging that we have received your order. However, please note that this does not mean that your order has been accepted. Our acceptance of your order will take place as described below.
We will confirm our acceptance to you by sending you an e-mail that confirms that the products have been (or are about to be) dispatched (“Dispatch Confirmation“). The contract between us will only be formed when we send you the Dispatch Confirmation.
If we are unable to supply you with a product, for example because that product is not in stock or no longer available or because we cannot meet your requested delivery date, we will inform you of this by e-mail and we will not process your order. If you have already paid for the products, we will refund you the full amount including any delivery costs charged as soon as possible.
DELIVERY RULES AND RESTRICTIONS
A delivery charge will be added to your order value where appropriate, please see delivery times and charges http://www.rachelvosper.com/delivery. Please allow two additional days for deliveries to Scottish Highlands, Aberdeen, Northern Ireland and other rural areas. Orders are processed for delivery on working days only (Monday through Friday, excluding Bank Holidays).
All orders require a signature upon delivery. If you are not there to sign for your order, our delivery company will leave a card explaining that their driver has tried to deliver a parcel for the first time. They will then automatically attempt to re-deliver your items the following working day (Monday to Friday). To ensure secure and undamaged delivery of your order, our delivery company will not be able to leave your order ‘hidden’ at the address. We will take all reasonable care to deliver your order to the delivery address stated on your order. However we will not be liable for non-delivery or misdelivery as a result of incorrect data entry. If products are returned to us as undeliverable either because of an incorrect address or because of customer failure to contact the courier company or collect the goods from the depot where requested, we shall refund the price of the products less delivery costs incurred by us in sending out the goods plus any additional costs charged to us by the courier company for returning the goods to us. If the products we deliver to you are damaged or we have sent you the incorrect goods or quantity, please contact us within seven (7) days of delivery at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please do not sign for any packages that are damaged or opened.
Rachel Vosper Gift Vouchers can be exchanged for merchandise at Rachel Vosper, both online at www.rachelvosper.com, by phone on 020 7235 9666, and at our London boutique. Gift Vouchers cannot be exchanged or refunded for cash. Gift Vouchers can be used towards the purchase of goods at a higher price than its face value upon payment of the difference. For Gift Vouchers used towards the purchase of merchandise at a lower price than its face value no change will be given but the balance may be applied to future purchases. Rachel Vosper is under no liability for replacement or refund should vouchers be lost, stolen, damaged or destroyed whether they have been redeemed or not. Furthermore, we reserve the right to refuse any vouchers that have been modified, damaged or defaced. Gift Vouchers are only valid with a unique voucher code. The Gift Voucher will expire on the date indicated on the Gift Voucher; at expiry, any remaining balance will be lost. If any product purchased with a Gift Voucher is exchanged or refunded, any money owing will be added to the balance on the Gift Voucher.
YOUR CONSUMER RIGHT OF RETURN AND REFUND
If you are a consumer, you have a legal right to cancel a contract under the Consumer Contracts (Information, Cancellation and Additional Charges) Regulations 2013 during the period set out below. This means that during the relevant period if you change your mind or decide for any other reason that you do not want to receive or keep a product, you can notify us of your decision to cancel the contract and receive a refund.
However, this cancellation right does not apply in the case of made to measure products (although this does not affect your statutory rights in the event that such products are faulty or not fit for purpose). Your legal right to cancel a contract starts from the date of the Dispatch Confirmation (the date on which we e-mail you to confirm our acceptance of your order), which is when the contract between us is formed. Your deadline for cancelling the Contract then depends on what you have ordered and how it is delivered, as set out in the table below:
|Your Contract||End of the cancellation period|
|Your contract is for a single product (which is not delivered in instalments on separate days).||The end date is the end of 14 days after the day on which you receive the product. Example: if we provide you with a Dispatch Confirmation on 1 January and you receive the product on 10 January you may cancel at any time between 1 January and the end of the day on 24 January.|
|Your contract is for either of the following • one product which||The end date is 14 days after the day on which you receive the last instalment of the product or the last of the separate products ordered.|
|is delivered in instalments on separate days. • multiple products which are delivered on separate days.||Example: if we provide you with a Dispatch Confirmation on 1
January and you receive the first instalment of your product or the first of your separate products on 10 January and the last instalment or last separate product on 15 January you may cancel in respect of all instalments and any or all of the separate products at any time between 1 January and the end of the day on 29 January.
|Your contract is for the regular delivery of a product over a set period.||The end date is 14 days after the day on which you receive the first delivery of the products. Example: if we provide you with a Dispatch Confirmation on 1 January in respect of products to be delivered at regular intervals over a year and you receive the first delivery of your product on 10 January, you may cancel at any time between 1 January and the end of the day on 24 January. 24 January is the last day of the cancellation period in respect of all products to arrive during the year.|
To cancel a contract, you just need to let us know that you have decided to cancel. The easiest way to do this is to complete the cancellation form. If you use this method we will e-mail you to confirm we have received your cancellation.
If you send us your cancellation notice by e-mail or by post, then your cancellation is effective from the date you send us the e-mail or post the letter to us. For example, you will have given us notice in time as long as you get your letter into the last post on the last day of the cancellation period or e-mail us before midnight on that day.
If you cancel your contract we will:
- refund you the price you paid for the products. However, please note we are permitted by law to reduce your refund to reflect any reduction in the value of the goods, if this has been caused by your handling them in a way which would not be permitted in a shop. Please take care to read our Product Care Information enclosed with your order for more information about what handling is acceptable.
- refund any delivery costs you have paid, although, as permitted by law, the maximum refund will be the costs of delivery by the least expensive delivery method we offer (provided that this is a common and generally acceptable method). For example, if we offer delivery of a product within 3-5 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.
- make any refunds due to you as soon as possible and in any event within the deadlines indicated below:
- if you have received the product and we have not offered to collect it from you: 14 days after 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 have not received the product or you have received it and we have offered to collect it from you: 14 days after you inform us of your decision to cancel the contract.
If you have returned the products to us under this clause because they are faulty or mis- described, we will refund the price of the products in full, together with any applicable delivery charges, and any reasonable costs you incur in returning the item to us.
We will refund you on the credit card or debit card used by you to pay. If you used vouchers to pay for the product we may refund you in vouchers.
If a product has been delivered to you before you decide to cancel your contract:
- then you must return it to us without undue delay and in any event not later than 14 days after the day on which you let us know that you wish to cancel the contract. If we have offered to collect the product from you, we will collect the products from the address to which they were delivered. We will contact you to arrange a suitable time for collection;
- unless the product is faulty or not as described you will be responsible for the cost of returning the products to us. If the product is one which cannot be returned by post, we estimate that if you use the carrier which delivered the product to you, these costs should not exceed the sums we charged you for delivery. If we have offered to collect the product from you, we will charge you the direct cost to us of collection (which will not be materially inconsistent with the sums we charged you for delivery).
When returning a product, please complete the reverse side of the invoice (which comes with your order). Pack the items back in the parcel, attach the invoice and send it back to the following address: Rachel Vosper, 69 Kinnerton Street, London SW1X 8ED. When returning items you are strongly recommended to obtain proof of posting. We cannot accept responsibility for parcels lost in transit. We will only refund or provide an exchange for the costs of postage where the item returned is faulty.
As you are a consumer, we are under a legal duty to supply products that are in conformity with this contract. As a consumer, you have legal rights in relation to products that are faulty or not as described. These legal rights are not affected by your right of return and refund in this clause or anything else in these Terms.
