Prices listed in £GBP and are not inclusive of Delivery costs. All items include VAT.
We may change the advertised price of a Product at any time. The price you pay will be the price in force at the time of your Order. The price on your Order will be validated by us as part of the acceptance procedure. We try to ensure Prices displayed on our website are correct at all times. Should a Pricing error arise, we will inform you if a Product's correct price is higher than that stated on your Order and you may choose to either proceed with or Cancel the Order.
Payment is usually by credit or debit card and is taken when the Order is placed. This is to protect us from card fraud.
Seasonal Imports Limited is entitled to refuse any Order placed by you.
If your Order is accepted, we will confirm acceptance to you by online electronic means ("Confirmation") to the email address you have given us on the Order. The Order will then be fulfilled around the estimated date set out in the Confirmation or, if the Confirmation does not contain such a date, within 30 days. If you do not receive a Confirmation email, please contact us to ensure your Order has been accepted.
You undertake that all details you provide to us for the purpose of purchasing Products or services which may be offered by us on our website will be correct, that the credit or debit card which you use is your own and that there are sufficient funds or credit facilities to cover the cost of any Products or services. We reserve the right to obtain validation and verification of the authenticity of your credit or debit card details before providing you with any Products or services.
All Products depicted on this website (as may be varied from time to time) are available almost everywhere in mainland UK, and by special arrangement to the Channel Islands, Republic of Ireland, Isle of Wight, Isle of Man, the Scottish Islands and mainland europe.
All Products are subject to availability. If the Product you Order is unavailable, we may provide to you a substitute of an equivalent quality and price without notice ("Substitute Product"). In the event that we are unable to supply the Product or any substitute Product to you at all, we shall notify you as soon as possible and shall reimburse your payment in full.
Arranging and anticipating delivery
Delivery is not included in the advertised Product Prices and is applicable within mainland England, Wales and Scotland. Delivery to Republic of Ireland, Isle of Man, Isle of Wight, Channel Islands, the Scottish Isles and mainland Europe may be arranged subject to additional Delivery charges.
Extra Delivery charges to remote or outlying areas within the UK mainland may arise, in which case we will agree the charges with you as soon as possible, where applicable. More information on extra charges will appear clearly on the individual Product pages.
Any times or dates stated on our website or confirmation emails regarding Delivery are estimates only. Seasonal Imports Limited will make all reasonable effort to deliver Products within the time specified, but does not accept liability for any failure to deliver within that time.
Orders received on Saturdays, Sundays or public holidays and Orders received after 2pm on weekdays, will be processed the next working day.
We do not normally deliver on Saturdays, Sundays or public holidays, but please contact us if this is the only time you can accept delivery.
Whilst we agree to use all reasonable effort to ensure that Delivery is made around the Delivery time advertised, you will acknowledge that actual Delivery is often via third party suppliers and carriers and can therefore be beyond our control.
Incorrect personal details may lead to problems or delays in Delivery, so before placing your Order, please ensure that you have included the full address details, including accurate postcode of the Delivery address and your daytime contact telephone number and e-mail address so we can notify you in the event of a Delivery problem.
When the delivery arrives
Delivery will be deemed as successfully made once the Product has arrived at the address specified. No signature is required for proof of Delivery, except where carriers use this for their own confirmation. Products may be left at the Delivery address without the Recipient's permission except where third party suppliers require signed confirmation or the Recipient has expressly requested Products not be delivered in their absence.
Products will be deemed your responsibility once they have been received by you, your agent or the intended Recipient. Any loss or damage to the Products shall then be at your own risk.
In case of Delivery to certain locations such as hospitals, airports, hotels, ships and other business premises, the signature of any person authorised to accept Delivery on behalf of the organisation shall be accepted as proof of Delivery.
Should Delivery be refused at the Delivery address, and re-requested for another date, we may charge for the second Delivery, since we met our Delivery obligations with the initial Delivery attempt.
It is the Recipients responsibility to sign for the correct number of packages as shown on the carrier's Delivery consignment note. Shortages must be noted on the consignment note where possible. You should notify us of the shortages within 3 days of Delivery.
If boxes look damaged on Delivery we recommend the contents are inspected before accepting and signing the Delivery note.
Cancellations and returns
We endeavour to provide the best Customer Service possible. Should anything go wrong, we will make every effort to resolve the issue. However, should the problem be unsolvable, or you prefer to amend or Cancel your Order, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
You are entitled to Cancel any payment at any time where fraudulent use has been made of your credit or debit card by another person not acting on your behalf or as your agent and be re-credited by us to the extent that such sums are not reimbursed by the card issuer.
