Conditions of Use
The following terms and conditions apply to all transactions on the glowing-embers.co.uk website (also referred to as Glowing Embers).
It is the customer’s responsibility to read through and accept the Conditions prior to making any purchase.
1. Effect of agreement
In entering into a contractual agreement for the supply of goods, you (the customer) duly accept these Conditions.
In almost all cases, the prices for goods are displayed on the website. In some instances you may need to telephone us for a price. Usually the price stated is that which must be paid for the goods supplied. On the rare occasion when a price is incorrectly stated on the website or quoted incorrectly, we will contact you to apologise and advise you of the error and indicate the actual price appropriate to those goods. Should you have already paid the price initially quoted; an option to have the amount paid refunded onto your debit/credit card will be provided. We will make every reasonable attempt to contact you to inform you of this change. If we are unable to contact you we may place the order on hold or cancel the order. If we cancel the order a full refund will be provided.
All prices shown and quoted are inclusive of VAT.
Costs may vary if ordering goods for delivery abroad. For a quote please telephone 01376 555182. Some areas of the UK and Ireland may incur additional delivery charges and you accept to pay these charges where required.
We ask you to understand that very occasionally deliveries may be late as a result of circumstances completely out of our control associated with the delivery services we employ. We cannot accept liability for any consequential cost that you may incur as a result of these unforeseen delays. Where we know of a potential delay we will try to inform you of this as soon as possible (the usual method of communication in this instance is via email). If goods do not arrive when expected, please telephone us to let us know. Where you have paid for a specific date for delivery and the goods do not arrive on or before that date, a refund of some or all delivery charges may be provided.
5. Faulty or damaged goods
You must check your goods on delivery. In cases of damaged goods, this should where possible, be communicated to the delivery driver and signed for 'as damaged'. Please then email email@example.com as soon as possible. In cases where we advise you to return the goods, we will reimburse you for the delivery costs at the rate of standard Royal Mail parcel delivery. You will then have the option of accepting replacement goods, or receiving a full refund, including the initial cost of delivery.
6. Availability of goods
We stock a considerable range of goods available for immediate purchase. Some items may be sent to you directly from the manufacturer and purchase of these goods may be subject to their available stock. If we are unable to send your goods within a reasonable time or when we have promised delivery, we will inform you as soon as possible. A full refund will be provided if you have already paid for goods and you wish to cancel the order.
In UK law, Distance Selling Regulations (DSR) provides you with a statutory right to cancel your goods order and receive a full refund for any home delivery item. To cancel, you can email us or write to us at Customer Services within 14 calendar days commencing the day after the day of delivery of your goods – please provide your order number to aid in processing this cancellation. You are liable for taking reasonable and due care of the goods. Please note, this excludes item which are cut to order such as, for example flue liner and stove rope.
