(20) Items, pricing and availability

  • Whilst every effort has been made to ensure that all graphical representations and descriptions of items available from the Trust correspond to the actual items, we are not responsible for any variations from these descriptions. In particular all items are sold on the understanding that they may show evidence of previous ownership.
  • The Trust does not represent or warrant that items will be available as we cannot take into account sales that have taken place during your visit to the Web site. If an item that is ordered has already been sold, we will make every effort to find a satisfactory replacement in as short a time as possible and keep you informed of progress. If we cannot fill the order within 14 days we will offer you a full refund and an opportunity to be placed on a waiting list for that item.
  • All pricing information on the Web site is correct at the time of going online. The Trust reserves the right to change prices and alter or remove any special offers from time to time and as necessary.
  • If prices are changed during the period between an order being placed and the Trust processing that order and taking payment, you will be contacted prior to your order being processed with details of the new price.
  • The Trust is not VAT registered.

(21) Delivery

  • The Trust will notify you by email when your items are to be dispatched to you.
  • If the Trust receives no communication from you within 10 days of delivery regarding any problems with the items, you are deemed to have received the items in satisfactory condition and with no problems.

(22) Returns policy

Your order constitutes a contractual offer and our acceptance of that offer is deemed to occur when we send you an email indicating that your order has been fulfilled and dispatched.

We are anxious to ensure that your purchases meet your expectations, so we are happy to accept returns and offer replacements or full refunds in the situations listed below. In each instance you should contact us within 10 days to arrange collection and return. You will be given the option to have the items replaced or to receive a refund of the price you paid through the payment method you used when placing the order. Refunds or replacements will be issued when we receive the returned items, which must be returned in their original condition with all packaging and documentation.

  • Items which do not match those that you ordered, or have major faults not described on the web site.
  • Items damaged in transit (you should report such damage to the Trust immediately).
  • Items bought in error can only be returned if their packaging remains unopened and the items can be re-sold without additional work on the part of the Trust. In this instance you are responsible for paying shipment costs in both directions.
  • If you wish to return items to the Trust for any of the above reasons, please contact us to make the appropriate arrangements.

We reserve the right to exercise discretion with respect to any returns under these Terms and Conditions. Factors which may be taken into account in the exercise of this discretion include, but are not limited to:

  • Any use or enjoyment that you may have already had out of the Items;
  • Any characteristics of the Items which may cause them to lose value;
  • The fact that the Items that the packaging has been opened;
  • Any discounts that may have formed part of the purchase price of the items to reflect any lack of quality made known to the customers at the time of purchase.

(23) International customers

If items are being ordered from outside the United Kingdom, import duties and taxes may be incurred once your items reach their destination. We are not responsible for these charges and we undertake to make no calculations or estimates in this regard. If you are buying internationally, you are advised to contact your local customs authorities for further details on costs and procedures. As the purchaser of the items, you will also be the importer of record and as such should ensure that your purchase is in full compliance with the laws of the country into which the items are being imported. Please be aware that items may be inspected on arrival at port for customs purposes and we cannot guarantee that the packaging of your items will be free of signs of tampering.
