Purchase of Products

Orders
We will take all reasonable care, in so far as it is in our power to do so, to keep the details of your order and payment secure, but in the absence of negligence on our part we cannot be held liable for any loss you may suffer if a third party procures unauthorised access to any data you provide when accessing or ordering from the Website.

Product descriptions
Descriptions of Products shown on the Website include approximate measurements. Colours shown on screen are reproduced as accurately as electronic processes allow. We try to ensure that our Website is as accurate as possible. However, we cannot be held responsible for any inaccuracies or errors which may arise.

All our prices are shown in pounds sterling and include VAT, at the prevailing rate. Delivery charges are additional to the cost of your Products.

Contract creation
The technical steps required to create the contract between you and us are as follows:

  • You place the order for your Products on the Website by completing the checkout process. You will be guided through the process of placing an order by a series of simple instructions on the Website.
  • We will send you an order acknowledgement e-mail detailing the Products you have ordered. This is not an order confirmation or order acceptance.
  • When your order is despatched from our workshop we will send you a despatch confirmation e-mail.
  • Order acceptance and the completion of the contract between you and us will take place only on the despatch to you of the Products.

Acceptance of your order
We do not have to accept your order and reserve the right to refuse or cancel any order once it has been placed. This may be done, for example, if:

your payment is not authorised or has been marked as fraudulent, or potentially fraudulent, by the payment system;
payment has been made using a card not issued in a country we dispatch to, or not where the billing address is;
there is an error on the website regarding the price or description of a product;
the items ordered are no longer in stock or in production;
you have not selected the correct delivery option for your shipping location (in this case we will contact you to try to rectify the problem)
we have tried contacting you about your order and have not heard back within a reasonable period of time; or
if the items you have ordered are unavailable for any other reason, you will be notified as soon as possible.

By placing an order with us you are confirming that any information you have given is true and accurate and that you are authorised to use the card on which payment was made.

Force majeure
We are not liable for any breach of agreement, for delay or failure to perform if the delay or failure is due to acts of God, civil commotion, riots, floods, drought, fire, legislation or other cause beyond our reasonable control. This does not affect your statutory rights.

Consumer Contracts Regulations 2013
This legislation offers you the following cancellation rights when you buy online or by phone:

You are entitled to cancel your contract if you so wish, provided that you exercise your right no longer than 14 days after the day on which you receive the goods or services.

Please note that you do not have a right to cancel an order if you are contracting as a business, or if you have previously inspected the Products. Neither do you have the right to cancel an order for bespoke items once we have started making them. Furthermore, your right to return Products does NOT apply to goods made to your specification (bespoke or made to measure). However, in the case of a made to measure pole, we can take back or cancel orders for standard components, such as the rings, finials and standard brackets.

If you wish to exercise your right of cancellation, you are obliged to retain possession of the goods and take reasonable care of them. To exercise the right to cancel, you must inform us of your decision to cancel your contract by a clear statement, including details of your name, geographical address, details of the order you wish to cancel and, where available, your phone number and email address. You can cancel by email: sales@blacksmithcollection.com, or call 01769 580004, or write to: The Blacksmith Collection Ltd, West Park, Kings Nympton, Umberleigh, EX37 9TN, U.K.

If you decide to cancel, you should return the goods to us at your cost within 14 days of such cancellation and we will reimburse to you (by the method used to pay for the original transaction) the amount in relation to goods to which cancellation rights apply. This does not include the cost of delivery if the order contains made to measure items.

We may make a deduction from the reimbursement for loss in value of any goods supplied, if the loss is the result of unnecessary handling by you. We will make the reimbursement no later than 14 days after the day we receive back from you any goods supplied.

Refunds and exchanges
We'll refund the price of the Product (and delivery charges, where applicable) or exchange the Product only once it's been received by us.

If you need to return or exchange an item please contact us by email or phone.

We are happy to pay carriage costs on any damaged products provided that we have agreed this with you before you send them back. Should you simply not like the goods and wish to return or exchange them our standard carriage costs will apply.

Please note that we will not accept returns of items cut to length, or made to measure, although there may be standard items supplied with the made to measure item which are eligible for return or exchange.

Where you are returning standard items supplied as part of a package with a made to measure item, we will refund the amount that you were charged for those items as part of the package. This may be less than the list price for buying the items individually, as a package discount may have been applied.

We can quote for collection by our courier, but this can be expensive as we are charged for both the collection and delivery. You may wish to return items by post, in which case we recommend that you use an insured form of postage.

Please make sure that you enclose details of your original order and your requirements for the return or exchange.

Products should be returned in their original packaging and in fully resaleable condition.

Whilst we try to be flexible with returns, we reserve the right not to refund or exchange any products returned more than 3 months after purchase.

Our usual refund policy does not apply to made to order products, which cannot be returned or exchanged unless faulty. We can, however, provide an exchange or refund for any standard items within a made to measure order.

None of the above affects your statutory rights when goods are faulty or not as described.

Delivery & delivery charges
If you wish to return any goods, you will be liable for the cost of return delivery. We will, however, refund any delivery charge you've paid when a product is found to have been damaged, faulty or incorrect due to our fault, but not otherwise.

Delivery charges vary according to the type of goods ordered. Our delivery charges are set out in our website. You will may be required to pay extra for delivery of certain items and it might not be possible for us to deliver to some locations.

We will deliver the goods to the address you specify for delivery in your order. It is important that this address is accurate. We cannot accept any liability for any loss or damage to the goods once they have been delivered in accordance with your delivery instructions (unless this is caused by our negligence). We will aim to deliver the goods by the date quoted for delivery but delivery times are not guaranteed and therefore time is not of the essence.

You will become the owner of the goods you have ordered when they have been delivered to you. Once goods have been delivered to you they will be held at your own risk and we will not be liable for their loss or destruction.

Description of Products
We will take all reasonable care to ensure that all details regarding Products appearing on the Website are correct at the time when the information was entered onto the system. Although we aim to keep the Website as up to date as possible, the information including Product descriptions appearing on the Website at a particular time may not always reflect the position exactly at the moment you place an order. We cannot confirm the price of a Product until your order is accepted in accordance with our order acceptance policy. Any weights, dimensions and capacities given about the goods are approximate only.
