1. INFORMATION ABOUT US
www.orthotix.co.uk is a site operated by Dacey Ltd T/A Orthotix (we). We are a limited company registered in England and Wales under company number 2100725 and our registered office is at Sanatorium Road, Canton, Cardiff CF11 8DG, which is also our main trading address. Our VAT number is 433460177.
2. SERVICE AVAILABILITY
Our site is only intended for use by people resident in the United Kingdom. We do not accept orders from individuals outside the United Kingdom. However any overseas trade enquiries can be made to our Customer Service team for consideration.
3. YOUR STATUS
By placing an order through our site, you warrant that:
(a) you are legally capable of entering into binding contracts; and
(b) you are a resident in the United Kingdom.
4. HOW THE CONTRACT IS FORMED BETWEEN YOU AND US
4.1 After placing an order, you will receive an e-mail from us acknowledging that we have received your order. Please note that this does not mean that your order has been accepted. 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 (the 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.
5. CONSUMER RIGHTS
5.1 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. 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 9 below).
5.2 To cancel a Contract, you must inform us in writing. You must also return the Products to us immediately, in the same condition in which you received them, and at your own cost and risk. 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. This provision does not affect your statutory rights.
6. AVAILABILITY AND DELIVERY
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.
7. RISK AND TITLE
7.1 The Products will be at your risk from the time of delivery.
7.2 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.
8. PRICE AND PAYMENT
8.1 The price of any Products will be as quoted on our site from time to time, except in cases of obvious error.
8.2 These prices include VAT and a standard (2-3 working days) delivery cost. Next working day delivery is available but will be an additional charge.
8.3 Prices 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.
8.4 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 of such rejection.
8.5 We are under no obligation to provide the Product to you at the incorrect (lower) price, even after we have sent you a Dispatch Confirmation, if the pricing error is obvious and unmistakeable and could have reasonably been recognised by you as a mis-pricing.
8.6 Payment for all Products must be by credit, debit card or independent third party such as paypal. We accept payment with Visa, Mastercard, Maestro, Electron and Solo. We will not charge your credit or debit card until we despatch your order.
9. OUR REFUNDS POLICY
9.1 When you return a Product to us:
(a) because you have cancelled the Contract between us within the seven-day cooling-off period (see clause 5.1 above), we will process the refund due to you as soon as possible and, in any case, within 30 days of the day you have given notice of your cancellation. In this case, we will refund to the original payment method, the price of the Product in full, excluding the cost of sending the item to you. You will also 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 paragraph 18 that you do not agree to any change in these terms and conditions or in any of our policies, or because you claim that the Product is defective), we will examine the returned Product and will notify you of your refund via e-mail within a reasonable period of time. We will usually process the refund due to you 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 for the defective Product. Products returned by you because of a defect will be refunded in full, including a refund of the delivery charges for sending the item to you and the cost incurred by you in returning the item to us.
