9. Returns and Substitutions (clause 9 only applies if you are a consumer)
9.1 If you are a consumer, you have a legal right to cancel a Contract under the Consumer Contracts (Information, Cancellation and Additional Charges) Regulations 2013 during the period set out below in sub-clause 9.3. 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.
9.2 However, this cancellation right does not apply in the case of any Products which become mixed inseparably with other items after their delivery.
9.3 Your legal right to cancel a Contract starts from the date of the ‘New Order’ (the date on which we email 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:
End of the cancellation period
Your Contract is for a single Product (which is not delivered in instalments on separate days).
The end date is the end of 14 days after the day on which you receive the Product.
Example: if we provide you with an ‘New Order’ on 1 January and you receive the Product on 10 January you may cancel at any time between 1 January and the end of the day on 24 January.
Your Contract is for either of the following:
The end date is 14 days after the day on which you receive the last instalment of the Product or the last of the separate Products ordered.
Example: if we provide you with a ‘New Order’ on 1 January and you receive the first instalment of your Product or the first of your separate Products on 10 January and the last instalment or last separate Product on 15 January you may cancel in respect of all instalments and any or all of the separate Products at any time between 1 January and the end of the day on 29 January.
Your Contract is for the regular delivery of a Product over a set period.
The end date is 14 days after the day on which you receive the first delivery of the Products.
Example: if we provide you with an ‘New Order’ on 1 January in respect of Products to be delivered at regular intervals over a year and you receive the first delivery of your Product on 10 January, you may cancel at any time between 1 January and the end of the day on 24 January. 24 January is the last day of the cancellation period in respect of all Products to arrive during the year.
9.4 Cancellations made within 24 hours of the time noted on the ‘New Order’ will be refunded in full, in accordance with sub-clause 9.1, however for cancellations made after the expiration of 24 hours of the time noted on the ‘New Order’ we reserve the right to recover any reasonable costs incurred with regards to labour, materials and administration fees.
9.5 This returns policy is limited to items that have not been customised from their original state as displayed on our website (please contact us to discuss this further, as management has the ability to waive these limitations on a case by case basis. In the unlikely event that the Product turns out to be faulty, damaged or different from those you ordered, we will repair the item free of charge or refund the item in full).
9.6 Returns of orders will be confirmed only where you have returned the item in its original condition, unworn and together with its original packaging and certificate where applicable. Non-return of the certificate will be charged at £100 for a replacement certificate and you may be charged an additional replacement cost for packaging and any other collateral material. You will need to bear the costs of shipment and insurance.
9.7 Should you not like the Product we will arrange to remount the diamond (where one or more were selected) in a design of their choice, without charge, save for any additional metal, diamonds or labour required and a nominal £50 administration and processing charge.
9.8 All returned Products are subject to verification and authentication by our team. A Product with any element of personalisation, engraving, bespoke items, designs by or for the client, may be considered for return and refund on a case-by-case basis. For Health and Safety reasons, earrings cannot be returned. For security reasons we recommend that you do not use the name Hatton By Design anywhere on the packaging of your returned. To arrange a return we would require you to contact our Customer Services either by calling 0330 022 0441 or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
9.9 The Product remains our property until it has been paid for in full. In case you receive goods you have not paid for and you are requested to return the same to us, you have to do so immediately without delays. We will incur the costs of delivery but may charge you interest in the amount of 2% above the WorldPay rate to be calculated form the day you have received the goods.
9.10 Because you are a consumer, we are under a legal duty to supply a Product that is in conformity with this Contract. As a consumer, you have legal rights in relation to a Product that is faulty or not as described. These legal rights are not affected by your right of return and refund in this clause 9 or anything else in these Terms. Advice about your legal rights is available from your local Citizens' Advice Bureau or Trading Standards office.
10.1 Estimated timescales are specified when you place an order. We will endeavour to deliver the Product within the estimated timescales; however delays are occasionally inevitable due to unforeseen factors. We will not be held liable for any delay or failure to deliver the Product within an estimated timescale. Occasionally our delivery to you may be affected by an Event Outside Our Control (see clause 16 for our responsibilities when this happens).
10.2 Orders can be collected by hand, directly from us at our office, with an appropriate proof of Identity such as passport or driving license.
10.3 Risk of loss and damage of a Product passes to you after the item has been delivered to you.
10.4 If no one is available at your address to take delivery, we will leave you a note that the Product has been returned to our premises, in which case, please contact us to rearrange delivery.
10.5 Delivery of an Order shall be completed when we deliver the Product to the address you gave us or you or a carrier organised by you collect them from us and the Product will be your responsibility from that time.
10.6 You will own the Product once we have received payment in full, including all applicable delivery charges.
(This sub-clause 10.7 only applies if you are a consumer.)
10.7 If we miss the delivery deadline for a Product then you may cancel your Order straight away if any of the following apply:
(a) We have refused to deliver the Product;
(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.
10.8 If you do not wish to cancel your order straight away, or do not have the right to do so under sub-clause 10.7, 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.
10.9 If you do choose to cancel your Order for late delivery under sub-clauses 10.8 or 10.9, 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 Product has been delivered to you, you will have to return it to us or allow us to collect it, 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 Product and its delivery.
11. International delivery or non available
We currently only deliver to addresses in the United Kingdom.
12. Price of products and delivery charges
12.1 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 sub-clause 12.5 for what happens if we discover an error in the price of Product(s) you ordered.
12.2 Prices for our Products may change from time to time, but changes will not affect any order you have already placed.
12.3 The price of a Product includes VAT (where applicable) at the applicable current rate chargeable in the UK 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 Product(s) in full before the change in VAT takes effect.
12.4 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.
12.5 Our site contains a large number of Products. It is always possible that, despite our reasonable efforts some of the Products on our site may be incorrectly priced. We will normally check prices as part of our dispatch procedures so that:
(a) Where the Product's correct price is less than the price stated on our site, we will charge the lower amount when dispatching the Products to you. However, 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; and
(b) If the Product's correct price is higher than the price stated on our site, we will contact you as soon as possible 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.
