Section B: Terms of Sale
6OUR AGREEMENT FOR THE SALE OF GOODS AND THE ORDERING PROCESS
6.1 The Website displays Goods which are advertised for sale and gives information about them. By advertising Goods on the Website, We are inviting You to place an Order with Us. If You place an Order, We are not obliged to accept that Order and the Contract between Us will only be formed if and when We accept Your Order. You may include any number of items within a single Order, subject to any restrictions set out in these Terms and each Order which You place will be a separate Contract between Us. We reserve the right to refuse to supply Goods to any person.
6.2 Any terms and conditions appearing or referred to in the Order or otherwise stipulated by You shall have no effect. Any variation of the Contract must be confirmed in writing by Us.
6.3 The following paragraphs explain the process which You will need to go through to place an Order and how the Contract for the sale of Goods between us will be formed. This section also explains important information about payment and delivery.
Step 1 – Choosing your Goods
You can select a product for purchase by clicking on the item which You are interested in and then clicking on “Add to Bag”.
Step 2 –Reviewing Your Bag
You can review the products which You have added to Your bag. You can change the contents of Your bag by amending the quantity of Goods You want to order (subject to a maximum of two per item, per size), removing any unwanted items by clicking ‘Remove’ and viewing the bag total value. You can also enter any promotional code which You may have. Entering a valid promotional code and clicking ‘Redeem’ will update the bag total. You can then continue shopping and adding to Your bag if You wish or if You don’t want to buy anything else, go straight to the next step.
Step 3 – Going to Checkout
Once You have finished shopping, You can proceed to Checkout by clicking on “Checkout Now” or by hovering over the bag icon in the top right-hand corner of the page and then clicking “Checkout”.
Step 4 – Completing the Address Details
You must then complete Your billing address. This is the address to which Your credit or debit card statements are normally sent. If You would like Your Goods to be delivered to a different address, You can tell Us by completing the delivery address section. Additional security checks may apply if an address other than the billing address is selected for delivery.
Step 5 – Your Order Summary and Payment Information
You will then see Your Order summary page. This includes details of the Goods in Your Order and Your billing and delivery address. You should check the details at this stage very carefully as this is the final stage in the Order process at which You can correct any mistakes or change the Goods which You want to Order. If You decide that You want to change something, You can correct errors in address details by clicking on “Edit Address”, add products to Your Order by clicking on “Continue Shopping” or remove items by clicking on “Bag”. You will also be asked to choose Your payment method and to add Your payment card details. Please check this information very carefully.
Step 7 – Placing Your Order
You will be asked to confirm that You have read the Terms and Conditions. You will then be asked to confirm all Your details and pay by clicking on “Confirm and Pay”. At this point Your details will be submitted to Us.
Step 8 – Order Confirmation
Once We have received confirmation that Your payment has been authorised, a screen will appear, thanking You for Your Order. You will be given an Order reference and an e-mail will be sent to You to acknowledge Your Order. It will confirm the Goods, price and any delivery charge. Print a copy of the Order acknowledgement and e-mail and keep them for Your records.
6.4 We may refuse Your Order if we decide it is reasonable to do so which may include where:
6.4.1 We are unable to obtain authorised payment or the payment process is incomplete; or
6.4.2 We identify a product or pricing error on the Website; or
6.4.3 You fail to meet any criteria for eligibility of purchase which We impose from time to time; or
6.4.4 You fail to submit all necessary and relevant details to allow Us to fulfil the Order; or
6.4.5 Goods are unavailable or out of stock.
6.5 We may contact You by telephone or email to verify details before We are able to process and dispatch Your Order or We may be unable to accept it. For example, We may do this if Your Order is of particularly high value.
7PRICE AND PAYMENT
7.1 Prices and delivery charges are as published on the Website when We accept Your Order. Prices do not include VAT and are in Euros. Delivery charges are shown separately.
7.2 We may amend prices at any time. Where there is a difference between a price at the time the Order is made and when it is accepted, We will inform You by email or telephone and ask You if You wish to proceed. If you decline and for any reason payment has already been taken, it will be re-credited to Your credit or debit account.
7.3 Offers and promotions on the Website are subject to availability and We may change or withdraw them at any time and without notice. Nothing shall oblige Us to maintain offers or promotions for any period. Additional terms may apply, details of which will be displayed.
7.4 We must receive payment for the Goods in full before they are dispatched.
7.5 We accept payment via PayPal and most major credit and debit cards including Visa, MasterCard, Switch, Maestro and American Express. You must only use a card if You are the named cardholder. By placing an Order, You confirm that You are the authorised cardholder. All credit and charge card holders are subject to validation and security checks as well as authorisation by the card issuer and any additional terms imposed by the issuer. If the issuer does not authorise payment, We will not accept Your Order and will not be liable for any delay or non-delivery. Should an order need to be refunded due to time constraints a standard charge of 3% will be levied to cover administration fees.
7.6 If We do not have sufficient stock of Goods, We will notify You by e-mail or telephone and Your credit or debit card transaction will be cancelled so that You will not be charged. We will do this as soon as possible and by no later than 30 (thirty) days from the due delivery date. We will not be responsible for any compensation if Goods which You order are not available for any reason.
If Things Go Wrong
8.8 We warrant that the Goods which we supply are of satisfactory quality and are fit for the purpose for which Goods of that nature are commonly supplied.
8.9 If You return Goods to Us for a reason other than if You change Your mind, We will inspect the Goods and either replace them or refund the full purchase price for Goods which We reasonably accept are defective or faulty or which are otherwise not in accordance with the Contract. This is subject to You returning the Goods to Us within a period of 14 (fourteen) days from delivery where you believe they are faulty for any reason. This is known as the “Warranty Period”.
8.10 Our promotional items are not intended for use by children under 3 years of age, or babies. Some of our promotional goods may contain small or sharp components, which may represent a hazard if detached or tampered with. Adult supervision is recommended with all of our products. Please keep out of reach of children and babies.
8.11 We will replace the Goods or refund You provided that the defect or fault is not caused by usual wear and tear, damage caused deliberately or accidentally, Your negligence or if You fail to follow product instructions or if the Goods have been misused, altered or repaired without Our approval. Any refund will also include any delivery charges which You have paid and Your cost of returning the Goods to Us. If We do not find any fault or defect then Your cancellation and refund rights are limited and we will return the good to you. this does not affect your statutory rights. Taking account also of Clause 9 below, the remedy in this Clause 8.10 represents our entire liability to You for any claim under the Warranty Period or any other warranty or condition in respect of the Goods which the law provides in so far as We are permitted to limit Our liability to You. Artwork is for representation purposes only. The finished product may alter slightly due to the nature of the product.
Colours / shades /tones may alter + or – 10% tolerance, unless a Pantone reference is provided. Computer monitors are not an accurate representation of colours on screen. Silicone may merge between 1 or more silicone colours resulting in a tertiary colour.
The buyer understands that that printed wristbands that are not also embossed or debossed will fade over time. Should the wristbands be needed for long-term wear, here at www.siliconewristbandsdirect.co.uk suggest that debossed or embossed (printed/unprinted) bands are purchased. We will not accept returns for printed ONLY wristbands where the print has started to fade or rub off. This is a natural effect of simply laying ink onto silicone and fading/rubbing is unavoidable especially when using swimming pools etc.
Proofs of all work may be submitted for the Buyer’s approval and no responsibility shall be accepted for any errors in proofs which may be passed by the Buyer. The Buyer’s alterations and additional proofs necessitated thereby shall be charged extra. When style type or layout is left to the Seller’s judgement changes therefrom made by the Buyer shall be charged extra.
Designs. No responsibility is accepted for wristband designs whether designed by the Seller or produced to the Buyer’s design. The Buyer must ensure that any such designs do not infringe any copyright design or other rights and shall indemnify the Seller against any costs claims or demands resulting from any alleged infringement of copyright design or other rights of third parties.
Drawings. All drawings specifications and illustrations in the Sellers catalogues sales or promotional literature or elsewhere are included as a guide only and unless specifically stated to the contrary shall not form part of the contract.
Illegal Matter. The Seller shall not be required to print any matter which in its unrestricted opinion is or may be of illegal libellous or improper nature or any infringement of the proprietary or other rights of any third party or unsuitable for any reasons for publication. The Buyer shall indemnify the Seller for and against all costs claims and demands which may arise in any proceedings brought against the Seller arising from the nature of the matter printed or its form or content. The indemnity shall extend to any amounts paid in settlement of any claim.
Copyright. The Buyer hereby acknowledges that the copyright in the drawings specifications and other literature supplied by the Seller and the design copyright in all goods manufactured by the Seller shall rest in the Seller.
8.12 If You believe that Goods have a defect then You should not make any further use of them before returning them to Us. After the Warranty Period, refunds and exchanges shall be at Our discretion except that Your statutory rights are not affected. These are Your rights granted by law and which cannot be changed by Us.
8.13 If You wish to return Goods in accordance with Clause 8.9 You may should:
8.14.1 contact us by email and we will send you an address to send a sample of the defective band to. We will inspect the band and contact you by phone to discuss the options.
8.14 Finally, whenever You return Goods to Us either because You believe they are faulty or because You change Your mind, We ask that Goods are returned to Us, either by recorded delivery or courier so that You have proof of posting. We will not be responsible for Goods which are lost or damaged in the post.
9.1 NOTHING IN THE CONTRACT OR ELSEWHERE WILL EXCLUDE OR LIMIT OUR LIABILITY FOR DEATH OR PERSONAL INJURY CAUSED BY OUR NEGLIGENCE OR ANY LIABILITY FOR FRAUDULENT MISREPRESENTATION OR FRAUD OR LIABILITY WHICH WE ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR IN RELATION TO CONSUMER PROTECTION RIGHTS OR FOR ANY OTHER MATTERS WHICH IT WOULD BE ILLEGAL FOR US TO EXCLUDE. YOUR STATUTORY RIGHTS ARE NOT AFFECTED.
9.2 TO THE EXTENT THAT WE ARE LIABLE TO YOU IN RESPECT OF BREACH OF CONTRACT, FOR NEGLIGENCE OR FOR ANY OTHER LEGAL LIABILITY IN RELATION TO THE GOODS OR THIS CONTRACT OR OTHERWISE, OUR TOTAL LIABILITY TO YOU WILL BE LIMITED TO THREE TIMES THE PRICE OF THE GOODS WHICH ARE THE SUBJECT OF THE LIABILITY, PAID BY YOU TO US AND ANY LOSSES WHICH ARE FORESEEABLE AS A DIRECT CONSEQUENCE OF US BREAKING OUR CONTRACT WITH YOU.
9.3 EXCEPT UNLESS WE EXPLICITLY STATE ELSEWHERE, WE SHALL NOT BE RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY INDIRECT OR SPECIAL LOSSES WHICH HAPPEN AS A SIDE EFFECT OR CONSEQUENCE OF ANY MAIN LOSS OR DAMAGE OR FOR ANYTHING WHICH WE OR YOU COULD NOT REASONABLY ANTICIPATE. THIS INCLUDES BUT IS NOT LIMITED TO THE FOLLOWING, HOWEVER THEY ARISE:
9.3.1 LOST PROFITS;
9.3.2 LOSS OF INCOME OR REVENUE;
9.3.3 LOSS OF SAVINGS;
9.3.4 LOSS OF DATA;
9.3.5 LOSS OF USE OF MONEY.

10.1 We aim to deliver the Goods within the indicative timescales shown on Our Website. However time is not of the essence for delivery or performance which means that We will not be responsible if Goods are delivered outside those times and We will not be liable for the consequences of any delay. If We are unable to deliver the Goods within the indicated timescale, We shall use reasonable efforts to tell You this by e-mail and give an amended delivery time. We will not be liable for the consequences of any delay. Our liability to You is capped at the limits set out in Clause 9.2 above.

10.3 Ownership of the Goods will only pass to You when We receive full payment including delivery charges (if applicable). The Goods will be at Your risk from the time of delivery and You should therefore take reasonable care of them.
10.4 If the Goods or quantity which You receive are not as You ordered due to Our error then You should inform Us by telephone, email or letter using the contact details set out at Clause 8.1, as soon as possible after You receive the Goods and become aware of the error. We will make good any error. We will also reimburse to You any delivery costs which You incur in sending the incorrect Goods back to Us. Any Goods which You receive in error and intend to return should not be used by You.
10.5 Goods will be delivered to the address which You provide in the Order process however delivery practices may vary depending on which carrier is delivering the Goods. You must provide a valid address for delivery. The delivery method which We use may vary depending on the nature and number of the Goods. We shall select what We think is the most appropriate delivery method for the Goods
