Other applicable terms
- Our Acceptable Use Policy, which sets out the permitted uses and prohibited uses of our site. When using our site, you must comply with this Acceptable Use Policy.
You must be at least 18 years of age to use our website; and by using our website or agreeing to these terms and conditions, you warrant and represent to us that you are at least 18 years of age.
By ordering any of our Products, you agree to be bound by these Terms and the other documents expressly referred to in it.
By using our website, you accept these terms and conditions in full; accordingly, if you disagree with these terms and conditions or any part of these terms and conditions, you must not use our website.
If you register with our website or make a purchase on our website, we will ask you to expressly agree to these terms and conditions.
Changes to these terms
We reserve the right to change these Terms at any time. Updated versions of the Terms will appear on this Site and are effective immediately. You are responsible for regularly reviewing the Terms. Continued use of this Site after any such changes constitutes your consent to such changes.
Contract for Sale
The advertising of products on this site is an ‘invitation to treat’. You will indicate by completing the appropriate order form on the site the products that you wish to order. At the same time, you will complete an authorisation for us to recover, through your credit or debit card, payments due to us. This means that your order is an offer, not a contract of sale between you and KJS Retail Limited, so prices and stock availability won’t be contractually confirmed until you receive the ‘confirmation of despatch’ email which is sent out once credit card authorisation has been confirmed and stock levels have been checked. For the avoidance of doubt, the ‘order confirmation’ email that is sent out once you have placed an order is just an acknowledgement of your offer and should not be taken as our acceptance of that offer.
Receipt of Order
KJS Retail Limited must receive payment in full for your order before it can be accepted. All payment for Products and for the cost of delivery where applicable must be made before the Products are dispatched.
Payment online will be made by credit or debit card or PayPal where this is chosen. We do not accept payment by cheque or other means. In all cases, delivery will not occur until we are satisfied that the payment has been made.
Once payment has been received and stock is checked, we will send you an email receipt confirming your order. Please keep this receipt for your records.
If your item is out of stock we will inform you on receipt of your order, and give you an estimated delivery date, which may be subject to change due to unforeseen circumstances. If you prefer not to wait, you may cancel your order and obtain a full refund. Please note that all delivery dates given are estimates only, therefore we cannot be held responsible for any loss or inconvenience caused by delays to delivery of out of stock items.
KJS Retail Limited reserves the right to refuse to supply any person for whatever reason.
The images of the Products on our site are for illustrative purposes only. Although we have made every effort to display the colours accurately, we cannot guarantee that your computer’s display of the colours accurately reflects the colour of the Products. Your Products may vary slightly from those images, this includes variations in the design of the lace on our products.
Although we have made every effort to be as accurate as possible, because our Products are handmade, all sizes, weights, capacities, dimensions and measurements indicated may vary from those listed on the website.
As each country’s sizing varies any sizing guides listed on our website are for recommendation purposes only. Please contact us at email@example.com should you have any queries regarding sizing.
The packaging of the Products may vary from that shown on images on our site.
All Products shown on our site are subject to availability. We will inform you by e-mail as soon as possible if the Product you have ordered is not available.
Price of Products
The prices of the Products will be as quoted on our site. We use our best efforts to ensure that the prices of Products are correct at the time when the relevant information was entered onto the system.
Prices for our Products may change from time to time, but changes will not affect any order which we have confirmed with a Dispatch Confirmation.
The price of a Product includes VAT (where applicable) at the applicable current rate chargeable in the UK for the time being. However, if the rate of VAT changes between the date of your order and the date of delivery, we will adjust the VAT you pay, unless you have already paid for the Products in full before the change in VAT takes effect.
The price of a Product does not include delivery charges.
It is always possible that, despite our reasonable efforts some of the Products on our site may be incorrectly priced. If we discover an error in the price of the Products you have ordered we will inform you to inform you of this error and we will give you the option of continuing to purchase the Product at the correct price or cancelling your order. We will not process your order until we have your instructions. If we are unable to contact you using the contact details you provided during the order process, we will treat the order as cancelled and notify you in writing.
Please note that if the pricing error is obvious and unmistakeable and could have reasonably been recognised by you as a mispricing, we do not have to provide the Products to you at the incorrect (lower) price.
