(1) You place the order for your goods on this website by pressing the confirm order button at the end of the checkout process. You will be guided through the process of placing an order by a series of simple instructions on the Website. You are able to correct errors on your order up to the point at which you click on ‘place order’ on the final page of our ordering process.
(2) We will send to you an order acknowledgement email detailing the goods you have ordered. This is not an order confirmation or order acceptance from Shrinking Violet Designs.
(3) Order acceptance and the completion of the contract between you and us will take place on the despatch to you of the goods ordered unless we have notified you that we do not accept your order, or you have cancelled it. Goods are therefore at your Risk from this point onwards.
We may not be able to accept your order for one or more of the following reasons:
We do not file details of your order for you to subsequently access direct on this website, and therefore, please print out these terms and conditions and the order acknowledgement for your own records. If you wish to obtain specific details of your previous orders please contact us.
Your country may also charge import duty and/or tax, and as the buyer (or importer) you are responsible for paying any of these additional costs. These are outside our control and do vary from country to country. You will be able to gain information about any additional charges by contacting your customs office.
To avail of this cooling-off-period, please package the goods securely and send it to us at our returns address on or before the seventh working day after the date that the item was delivered to you. When we have received and checked your return, a full refund will be given and issued direct to your card. Please be aware that the length of time before the credit shows on your account will vary according to your card issuer.
Please note that unless your item is faulty or has been delivered to you in error, your right to return does NOT apply to goods which are not returned to us in a saleable condition or if you have ordered the goods from a non-member state of the European Union. They must not exhibit signs of wear, and should have all original tags and packaging reasonably in place. Please, therefore, be careful when trying goods on – remove make up, perfumes or deodorants that will leave marks on the garment.
In the unlikely event that the goods you receive are either not what you ordered or are in some way faulty, please contact us to get a returns authorisation code and return it to us. On this form, you will need to state the reason the goods are being returned and whether you would prefer replacement goods or a refund. The decision as to whether or not goods are faulty is entirely at our discretion. If returned goods are not, in our reasonable opinion, faulty, we reserve the right to charge you a reasonable fee to cover postage, packing and handling if you wish us to return the goods to you again.
Please note we are unable to process refunds from the business premises or the company’s registered office.
