TERMS AND CONDITIONS FOR BUYING PRODUCTS AND JUST BROWSING

Welcome to Neat Hampers (Neat Hampers).

In these terms, we also refer to Neat Hampers as “our”, “we”, or “us”.

And you are you!

What are these terms about?

These terms apply when you use this website, being www.neathampers.co.uk, and any other websites we operate with the same domain name and a different extension (“Website”).

These terms also apply when you purchase products and services through this Website (“Products”).

 

How do I read these terms?

We separated these terms into three parts, so they are easy to read and understand.

Those parts are:

  • Part A: Terms for when you buy Products (applies when you buy)
  • Part B: Terms for when you browse and interact with this Website (applies when you browse)
  • Part C: Liability and warranties, and interpretation provisions (applies to both buying and browsing)

Please let us know if you have any questions about these terms, and don’t continue using this Website or purchase any Products unless you have read and agree to these terms.

 

I’ve returned to your Website, do I need to read these terms again?

Once you place an Order, the terms accepted at the point of sale will apply to your purchase of those Products. However, please note that we may change any part of these terms at any time by updating this page of the Website, so you may find that different terms apply next time you use this Website or purchase Products. You can check the date at the top of this page to see when we last updated these terms.

 

  • For When You Buy Products…

YOUR KEY INFORMATION

The Consumer Contracts (Information, Cancellation and Additional Charges) Regulations 2013 say that up to 14 days after receiving your Products, in some cases, you can change your mind and get a full refund.

The Consumer Rights Act 2015 (applicable in the United Kingdom) requires that all our Products are as described, fit for purpose and of satisfactory quality and so nothing in these terms affects statutory rights.

If this Act applies to you, subject to your compliance to use the sample to test your Product and keep the cellophane wrapper of the Product intact, you’re entitled to a refund of the Product if your claim is made not more than 30 days after the date of purchase.

This is a summary of some of your key rights in the United Kingdom. For detailed information from Citizens Advice please visit www.citizensadvice.org.uk or call 0808 223 1133.

The information above summarises some of your key rights. It is not intended to replace the contract below, which you should read carefully.
