2.     Orders and Acceptance

2.1.         When you have placed an order with us by pressing the “Proceed to Payment” button, an email will be sent to you acknowledging your exact order details.  All orders are subject to acceptance and availability. Our email is not an order confirmation or acceptance of your order and does not conclude the contract to purchase products from us. We reserve the right to reject any offer to purchase products made by you at any time.

2.2.         Order acceptance and the conclusion of the contract between you and us will only take place when we confirm by e-mail to you that your order has been despatched unless the order has been cancelled in accordance with these Conditions.  Acceptance will be complete when we send our order despatch confirmation e-mail to you.  We do not take payment for your product until the order is ready for despatch to you.

2.3.         We reserve the right to withhold any order from despatch in order to process further security checks. This can delay an order for up to 48 hours. All first orders must be shipped to the registered address of the cardholder that you provide to pay for your product.

3.     Pre-Order Items and Bespoke Items

3.1.         Occasionally, we may be waiting for deliveries from our suppliers and may give you the chance to make an advance payment for certain pre-order products to enable you to make an advance purchase. This is to ensure that you receive the product in priority once stock has been delivered to us. Your rights in respect of advance purchase are the same as those for any other purchase on our Website.

3.2.         Products received into stock may be pre-allocated to satisfy advance payment pre-orders and customers making advance payments will receive products in priority to customers on the waiting list or customers ordering through this Website for immediate delivery. Please note that we may be unable to deliver selected advance payment products due to supplier problems or quality check issues identified when we receive an order into stock. In such circumstances, we will notify you by e-mail and refund the advance payment to your credit card within 30 days of being advised that the product has become unavailable.

3.3.         Bespoke goods are any goods specifically personalized and/or tailored to your specifications.

3.4.         Orders for bespoke goods cannot be cancelled or changed once work has started on them.

3.5.         Bespoke goods which are delivered as described and are in good condition may not be refunded. We reserve the right to charge for re-posting of bespoke goods returned in error.

3.6.         We are not responsible for customer generated mistakes, errors or defects including spelling, typographical or grammar errors; poor image quality derived from low resolution images, order quantity, or other ordering errors. To prevent these errors from happening, please review your order carefully before submitting.

3.7.         Faulty goods will be rectified free of charge. Any problems with any part of a bespoke order must be reported to us within 7 days of receipt. Please e-mail sales@hbyharris.com who will contact you in regards to the fault and how to return the goods.

Such checks may include credit card number or credit reports (including credit reports for your spouse if you reside in a community property jurisdiction) and be carried out to authenticate your identity, to validate your credit card, to obtain an initial credit card authorisation and to authorise individual purchase transactions. We may share your personal data with such third parties as are necessary to enable us to do such checks.

We insure each product you purchase during the time it is transit from our premises to you. You will be asked to sign for any product(s) delivered at which point responsibility for your purchased product(s) passes to you. 

7.     Product Warranties and Availability

7.1.         We have taken all prudent steps to present products on the Website as accurately as possible. However, we accept no responsibility for variances in colour or style due to the settings on your computer monitor or mobile device. There may be minor differences between the specifications given for products on the Website and the product that you receive as we do offer products for sale which are not mass produced.

7.2.         Whilst every effort is taken to ensure all products offered on our Website are always in stock, occasionally some products will be temporarily out of supply and cannot be restocked.  If products that you order are out of stock or subject to a delay, we will try to contact you at the e-mail address you provided when placing your order.

7.3.         All products advertised on the Website are for the personal use of consumers only. You must not resell or apply any trade marks to any product that you purchase from the Website and they must not be used for any form of advertising or promotional purpose. We reserve the right to restrict multiple quantities of a product being shipped to one address or customer.

8.     Delivery 

8.1.         Postage and packaging charges are as per the charges displayed on the Website when you place an order. Please allow up to 5 working days for delivery.  Please note that unfortunately we do not offer guaranteed delivery on a Saturday, Sunday, Bank Holidays, Christmas Day, Boxing Day and New Years Day.

8.2.         We endeavour to dispatch all orders within 24 hours and, in any event, within 2-3 days. However, please allow up to 7 days for delivery as external factors may cause delays. Your order will be shipped once: (a) payment has been approved; and (b) your delivery/billing address has been verified. Please be aware that any orders placed after 3pm will not be dispatched until, at the earliest, the following day.

9.2.         If there is a fault with your products, please contact us within 7 days of purchase, via email and we will provide you with a replacement (if available) or a full refund.

9.3.         Under the UK Consumer (Distance Selling) Regulations 2000, you are also entitled to cancel your order for a full refund. To cancel your order, please email us within 7 working days after your receipt of your purchase.  Please quote your order reference number when doing so.

Returns Policy

Doing this assist us in giving you a quicker reply when we receive the product when organising a possible replacement or refund. Your product must be returned unused and, where possible, in the original packaging.  Please therefore keep the original packaging until you are certain you wish to keep your product. If you do not retain your original packaging please use similar packaging that will provide similar protection as your product must be received by us “as new” and in a condition for resale.

9.6.         Return costs will only be refunded if the product is faulty, or if it differs from the advertised product. We are unable to accept responsibility for any parcels returned to us until we safely receive them. Where the delivery of an order is refused, we reserve the right to deduct from the refund both the original delivery cost plus the cost of returning the goods to us.

10.  Events beyond our reasonable control: We will not be held responsible for any delay or failure to comply with our obligations under these Conditions if the delay or failure arises from any cause which is beyond our reasonable control. Examples of such delays or failures may include strike action or failure by our delivery companies to deliver your products on time due to exceptional circumstances such as strike action, hazardous weather conditions or accident.
