Returns & Refunds Policy

This clause 8 only applies if you are a consumer.

8.1          If you are a consumer, you have a legal right to cancel a Contract during the period set out below in clause 8.2. 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. Advice about your legal right to cancel the Contract is available from your local Citizens' Advice Bureau or Trading Standards office.

8.2          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:

 

8.3          To cancel a Contract, you just need to let us know that you have decided to cancel in writing.  You can e-mail us at support@slaintbrand.com

8.4          If you cancel your Contract we will:
(a)        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.

(b)        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.

(c)        make any refunds due to you as soon as possible and in any event within the deadlines indicated below:
(i)         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.  For information about how to return a Product to us, see clause 8.7;
(ii)        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.

8.5          If you have returned the Products to us under this clause 8 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.

8.6          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.

8.7          If a Product has been delivered to you before you decide to cancel your Contract:
(a)        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;

(b)        unless the Product is faulty or not as described (in this case, see clause 8.5), 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;

8.8          If you elect to cancel your Contract by either refusing the Products (other than for reasons set out in 8.5) at the point of delivery or not paying any import charges or other taxes, all charges related to the return will be your responsibility (the party ordering the Products) and will be deducted from the refund.

8.9          Because 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 8 or anything else in these Terms. Advice about your legal rights is available from your local Citizens' Advice Bureau or Trading Standards office.


Delivery Policy

9.1          We will contact you with an estimated delivery date, which will be within 30 days after the date of the Dispatch Confirmation (the date on which we e-mail you to confirm our acceptance of your order). Occasionally our delivery to you may be affected by an Event Outside of Our Control. See clause 14 (in our Ts & Cs) for our responsibilities when this happens.

9.2          Delivery of an Order shall be completed when we deliver the Products to the address you gave us and the Products will be your responsibility from that time.

9.3          You own the Products once we have received payment in full, including all applicable delivery charges.

9.4          Any delivery date indicated is an estimate only.  As a guide, please allow up to 5 working days for delivery within the EU and 7 working days for International delivery from receipt of Dispatch Confirmation. This is subject to goods being in stock and you should allow for a longer delivery time during the holiday periods. All deliveries are sent from Tilburg, The Netherlands.

This clause 9.5 only applies if you are a consumer.

9.5          If we miss the 30 day delivery deadline for any Products then you may cancel your Order straight away if any of the following apply:
(a)        we have refused to deliver the Products;
(b)        delivery within the delivery deadline was essential (taking into account all the relevant circumstances); or
(c)        you told us before we accepted your order that delivery within the delivery deadline was essential.

9.6          If you do not wish to cancel your order straight away, or do not have the right to do so under clause 9.4, you can give us a new deadline for delivery, which must be reasonable, and you can cancel your Order if we do not meet the new deadline.

9.7          If you do choose to cancel your Order for late delivery under clause 9.5 or clause 9.6, you can do so for just some of the Products or all of them, unless splitting them up would significantly reduce their value. If the Products have been delivered to you, you will have to return them to us or allow us to collect them, and we will pay the costs of this. After you cancel your Order we will refund any sums you have paid to us for the cancelled Products and their delivery.

 

Price of products and delivery charges

10.1        The prices of the Products will be as quoted on our site at the time you submit your order. We take all reasonable care to ensure that the prices of Products are correct at the time when the relevant information was entered onto the system. However please see clause 10.5 for what happens if we discover an error in the price of Product(s) you ordered.

10.2        Prices for our Products may change from time to time, but changes will not affect any order you have already placed.

10.3        The price of a Product includes VAT (where applicable) at the applicable current rate chargeable in The Republic of Ireland 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.  Where you are located outside of the UK or EU, the VAT amount will be deducted during checkout.

10.4        The price of a Product does not include delivery charges. Our delivery charges are as advised to you during the check-out process, before you confirm your order.

10.5        We cannot be held responsible should local customs authorities wish to confiscate any particular item ordered, or charge any import duty on such items. You are responsible for paying the duty. We cannot guarantee that the sale and delivery of our goods to your particular country or location is permissible, so please be aware of your own geographic import restrictions and duties that may apply by law.

10.6        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 contact 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.
