Your order constitutes an offer to us to buy a Product. All orders are subject to acceptance by us, and we will confirm such acceptance to you by sending you an e-mail that confirms that the Product has been dispatched (Dispatch Confirmation). The contract between us (Contract) will only be formed when we send you the Dispatch Confirmation.
4.2 The Contract will relate only to those Products whose dispatch we have confirmed in the Dispatch Confirmation. We will not be obliged to supply any other Products which may have been part of your order until the dispatch of such Products has been confirmed in a separate Dispatch Confirmation.
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. If you would like information about your legal rights you should contact your local trading standards or citizens advice bureaux. We will notify you when a third party is involved in a transaction, and we may disclose your personal information related to that transaction to the third party seller.
6.1 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 Products subject to returns policy section 10. In this case, you will receive a full refund of the price paid for the Products in accordance with our refunds policy (set out in clause 10 below).
6.2 To cancel a Contract, you must inform us in writing. You must also return the Products to us as soon as reasonably practicable, and at your own cost. You have a legal obligation to take reasonable care of the Products 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.
6.3 You will not have any right to cancel a Contract for the supply of any Products which are bespoke orders to your specific requirements.
6.4 Details of your statutory right of cancellation, and an explanation of how to exercise it, are provided in the Dispatch Confirmation. This provision does not affect your other statutory rights as a consumer.
Your order will be fulfilled by the delivery date set out in the Dispatch Confirmation or, if no delivery date is specified, then within 30 days of the date of the Dispatch Confirmation, unless there are exceptional circumstances.
8.1 The Products will be your responsibility from the time of delivery.
8.2 Ownership of the Products will only pass to you when we receive full payment of all sums due in respect of the Products, including delivery charges.
9.1 The price of the Products and our delivery charges will be as quoted on our site from time to time, except in cases of obvious error.
9.2 Product prices include VAT. 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.
9.3 Product prices and delivery charges 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.
9.4 Our site contains a large number of Products and it is always possible that, despite our best efforts, some of the Products listed on our site may be incorrectly priced. We will normally verify prices as part of our dispatch procedures so that, where a Product's correct price is less than our stated price, we will charge the lower amount when dispatching the Product to you. If a Product's correct price is higher than the price stated on our site, we will normally, at our discretion, either contact you for instructions before dispatching the Product, or reject your order and notify you that we are rejecting it.
9.5 If the pricing error is obvious and unmistakeable and could have reasonably recognised by you as an error, we do not have to provide the Products to you at the incorrect (lower) price.
9.6 Payment for all Products must be by credit or debit card. We will not charge your credit or debit card until we dispatch your order.
10.1 If the product is defective in any way or has a fault, a replacement or refund will be made as long as the product is in the same condition as despatched and is within 7 days of receipt of goods and is in the original packaging.
Please note you should check all wallpaper and paint products for faluts before use. If the product is defective in any way, or has a fault, a full replacement or refund will be made at no charge, We always recommend that you order a sample first to avoid any confusion regarding colour, scale of pattern, finish etc. You can also reserve a roll with most suppliers for 10 days. Products which are made to measure, printed to order or specially mixed cannot be exchanged or refunded unless faulty. Single rolls of wallpaper may not be returned. If you want to return the goods for any other reason ( you may have changed your mind) please be aware, that since all wallpaper orders are bespoke (specifically sourced to your requirements, and made by batch) we CANNOT accept a return and therefore refund. Please note that paint orders for specially mixed colours are non returnable as they are either specially formulated by mixing machines or specially manufactured.
For these reasons we strongly advised you to consider carefully before youplace your order.
10.2 If you return a faulty Product to us:
(a) Because you have cancelled the Contract between us within the seven-day cooling-off period (see clause 6.1 above), we will process the refund due to you as soon as possible and, in any case, within 30 days of the day on which you gave us notice of cancellation. In this case, we will refund the price of the Product in full, and any applicable delivery charges. However, you will be responsible for the cost of returning the item to us.
(b) for any other reason (for instance, because you have notified us in accordance with clause 22 that you do not agree to a change in these terms and conditions or in any of our policies, or because you consider that the Product is defective), we will examine the returned Product and will either provide a full or partial refund or repair or replace any defective Product. We will notify you of any decision to refund, repair or replace any Product via e-mail within a reasonable period of time and will usually process any refund due to you or send any repaired or replacement Product as soon as possible and, in any case, within 30 days of the day we confirmed to you via e-mail that you were entitled to a refund or repaired or replacement Product.
10.3 In the event of a wallpaper complaint, please contact customer service at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 08001522722, a sample of the imperfection and a roll label must be submitted for each roll claimed. No claim will be allowed for any wallpaper hung in excess of one roll. If a problem is encountered, do not continue to hand or cut the goods. The seller cannot be held responsible for any LABOUR charges or consequential losses incurred. The user must accept responsibility once work has commenced. Ensure that all rolls of wallcovering are examined prior to application for batch number, design, colour, shading and imperfections.
10.4 We will usually refund any money received from you using the same method originally used by you to pay for your purchase.
10.5 These terms and conditions will apply to any replacement or repaired Products provided to you.
