3.2 If we cannot accept your order. If we are unable to accept your order, we will inform you of this in writing and will not charge you for the product. This might be because the product is out of stock, because of unexpected limits on our resources which we could not reasonably plan for, because we have identified an error in the price or description of the product or because we are unable to meet a delivery deadline you have specified.
3.3 Your order number. We will assign an order number to your order and we will detail your order number in our confirmation email to you. It will help us if you reference your order number whenever you contact us about your order.
4.1 Products may vary slightly from their pictures. The images of the products on our website are for illustrative purposes only. Although we have made every effort to display the colours accurately, we cannot guarantee that a device's display of the colours accurately reflects the colour of the products. Your product may vary slightly from those images. Although we have made every effort to be as accurate as possible, any sizes, weights, capacities, dimensions and measurements indicated on our website have a 5% tolerance.

6.2 When we will provide the products. During the order process we will let you know when we will provide the products to you, depending on the delivery option you select at checkout.

We always use our reasonable efforts to deliver your order to you as soon as reasonably possible and within the estimated delivery date. If for any reason this is not possible, we will deliver the products to you within 30 days after the day on which we accept your order.
6.2.1 Please note the following in relation to delivery:
188.8.131.52 We may choose to send any orders for rugs separately to the rest of your order. They may therefore be delivered at a different time to the rest of your order.

220.127.116.11 We do not include weekends or bank holidays in any estimated delivery date we provide to you (regardless of whether you elect the express delivery option or not). Your estimated delivery date is therefore the number of working days until your order will be delivered to you.

If no one is available at your address to take delivery and the products cannot be posted through your letterbox or otherwise require a signature, our couriers will either leave the parcel in a safe place at your premises or leave you a note informing you of how to rearrange delivery or collect the products from a local depot.
6.6 If you do not re-arrange delivery. If you do not re-arrange delivery or collect the products from a delivery depot after a failed delivery to you, we will contact you for further instructions and may charge you for storage costs and any further delivery costs we incur. If, despite our reasonable efforts, we are unable to contact you or re-arrange delivery or collection from the depot we may end the contract and get the products returned to us. We will deduct our expenses in doing so from any refund we issue you.

If the products you have ordered are all delivered together, you have 14 days after the day your products were delivered to the address specified on your order. If your products are split into several deliveries over different days (for example, if you ordered a rug as part of your order), you have until 14 days after the day the last delivery was made to the delivery address on your order to change your mind about the products.

7.5 What to do once you have posted your parcel back to us.

7.6 Make sure you keep your postage receipt from the courier or other registered delivery service. You must have a valid postage receipt (including parcel weight) for all return parcel enquiries as you will need to provide us with this (including the tracking number) in case your parcel becomes lost in transit. Any non-delivery cases will not be valid without this receipt. It will be your responsibility to begin a claim against the courier or other delivery service provider for any parcel lost in transit. We do not accept any liability for this.
7.7 What if there is a problem with my product? If there is a problem, please follow the steps outlined in clause 9 to help us resolve the issue for you.
7.8 Deductions from refunds if you are exercising your right to change your mind. If you are exercising your right to return your products under clause 7.1 then please bear in mind that:
7.8.1 We may reduce your refund of the price to reflect any reduction in the value of the products if such a reduction has been caused by your handling of the products in a way which would not be permitted in a shop. If we refund you the price paid before we are able to inspect the products and later discover you have handled them in an unacceptable way, you must pay us an appropriate amount by way of compensation for the damage and we will contact you about this at the relevant time.
7.8.2 The maximum refund for delivery costs will be the costs of delivery by the least expensive delivery method we offer. 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.
8.1 How we will refund you. We will refund you the price you paid for the products by the method you used for payment.
8.2 When your refund will be made. We will make any refunds due to you as soon as possible and within 14 days from 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 7.
9.1 How to tell us about problems. If you have any questions or complaints about the product, please contact us. You can telephone our customer service team at 0161 794 9213, write to us at email@example.com or submit a form to us via our Contact Us page which you can access here.
9.2 Summary of your legal rights. We are under a legal duty to supply products that are in conformity with this contract. See the box below for a summary of your key legal rights in relation to the products. Nothing in these terms will affect your legal rights. Summary of your key legal rights This is a summary of your key legal rights. These are subject to certain exceptions. For detailed information please visit the Citizens Advice website www.adviceguide.org.uk or call 03454 04 05 06. Under the Consumer Rights Act 2015, goods must be as described, fit for purpose and of satisfactory quality. During the expected lifespan of your product your legal rights entitle you to the following: a) Up to 30 days: if your goods are faulty, then you can get an immediate refund. b) Up to six months: if your goods can't be repaired or replaced, then you're entitled to a full refund, in most cases. c) Up to six years: if your goods do not last a reasonable length of time you may be entitled to some money back.
9.3 Your obligation to return faulty products. If you wish to exercise your legal rights to reject products you must post them back to us following the procedure set out in clause 7.4. Clause 7.6 also applies to your return of faulty products. We will pay the costs of postage for faulty products. Please refer to our FAQs page here to find our returns policy for faulty products.
9.4 Our obligation to replace faulty products. We will replace your faulty product(s) subject to you returning it or them. If you do not want us to replace your product(s), we will refund you the price you paid for the product(s) (including delivery costs) by the method you used for payment.
10.1 Where to find the price for the product. The price of the product (which includes VAT) will be the price indicated on the product page on our website and the order pages when you placed your order. We take all reasonable care to ensure that the price of the product advised to you is correct. However please see clause 10.2 for what happens if we discover an error in the price of the product you order.
10.2 What happens if we got the price wrong. It is always possible that, despite our reasonable efforts, some of the products we sell may be incorrectly priced. We will normally check prices before accepting your order so that, where the product's correct price at your order date is less than our stated price at your order date, we will charge the lower amount. If the product's correct price at your order date is higher than the price stated to you, we will contact you for your instructions before we accept your order. If we accept and process your order where a pricing error is obvious and unmistakeable and could reasonably have been recognised by you as a mispricing, we may end the contract, refund you any sums you have paid and require the return of any products provided to you.
10.3 When you must pay and how you must pay. We accept payment with all major credit and debit cards except for American Express. You must pay for the products before we dispatch them. We will not charge your credit or debit card until we dispatch the products to you.
11.1 We are responsible to you for foreseeable loss and damage caused by us. If we fail to comply with these terms, we are responsible for loss or damage you suffer that is a foreseeable result of our breaching these terms or our failing to use reasonable care and skill, but we are not responsible for any loss or damage that is not foreseeable. Loss or damage is foreseeable if either it is obvious that it will happen or if, at the time the contract was made, both we and you knew it might happen.
11.2 We do not exclude or limit in any way our liability to you where it would be unlawful to do so. This includes liability for death or personal injury caused by our negligence or the negligence of our employees, agents or subcontractors; for fraud or fraudulent misrepresentation; for breach of your legal rights in relation to the products as summarised at clause 9.2; and for defective products under the Consumer Protection Act 1987.
11.3 We are not liable for business losses. We only supply the products for domestic and private use. If you use the products for any commercial, business or re-sale purpose we will have no liability to you for any loss of profit, loss of business, business interruption, or loss of business opportunity.
12.1 We may transfer this Agreement to someone else. We may transfer our rights and obligations under these terms to another organisation. We will always tell you if this happens and we will ensure that the transfer will not affect your rights under the contract.
12.2 You need our consent to transfer your rights to someone else. You may only transfer your rights or your obligations under these terms to another person if we agree to this in writing.
12.3 Nobody else has any rights under this contract. This contract is between you and us. No other person shall have any rights to enforce any of its terms.
12.4 If a court finds part of this contract illegal, the rest will continue in force. Each clause of these terms operates separately. If any court or relevant authority decides that any of them are unlawful, the remaining paragraphs will remain in full force and effect.
12.5 Even if we delay in enforcing this contract, we can still enforce it later. If we do not insist immediately that you do anything you are required to do under these terms, or if we delay in taking steps against you in respect of your breaking this contract, that will not mean that you do not have to do those things and it will not prevent us taking steps against you at a later date.
12.6 Which laws apply to this contract and where you may bring legal proceedings. These terms are governed by English law and you can bring legal proceedings in respect of the products in the English courts. If you live in Scotland you can bring legal proceedings in respect of the products in either the Scottish or the English courts. If you live in Northern Ireland you can bring legal proceedings in respect of the products in either the Northern Irish or the English courts.
