Terms & Conditions
Terms & Conditions
This page together with the documents referred to in it sets out the terms of business on which we supply any products to you (“Goods”). You should read these terms of business carefully and in full before ordering any Goods. By ordering any of our Goods, you agree to be bound by these terms of business.
By placing an order you confirm that you have read and understand our Terms and Conditions and agree to them. If you do not agree to or understand our Terms and Conditions, you must not order Goods from our website.
1. Who we areThis website: condoms.uk (“the Site”) is operated by Condoms.uk of PO Box 222, Colwyn Bay, LL29 0FU and referred to throughout these terms of business as “we” or “us”.
2. Service availabilitySome restrictions may be placed on the extent to which we accept orders from certain countries or territories - these will be shown as part of the checkout process.
3. Who you are
By placing an order through the Site, you warrant to us that:
- you are legally capable of entering into binding contracts;
- you are at least 18 years old.
4. Our contractOnce you have placed your order, we may send you an e-mail acknowledging receipt. Please note that this does not mean that we have accepted your order. Your order constitutes your offer to us to buy Goods from us. All orders are subject to acceptance by us, and any such acceptance will only be made following the conclusion of these two steps: (1) by sending you an e-mail stating that the Goods have been dispatched and (2) the Goods have been given to the courier for delivery (the “Dispatch”). There will be no contract between us until both steps of the Dispatch occur.
5.1 Your order will be fulfilled by any delivery date set out in the Dispatch email. If the Dispatch email does not specify a delivery date, then your order will be fulfilled within 30 days of the date of the Dispatch, unless there are exceptional circumstances. If this happens, we will try to arrange for your Goods to be delivered as soon as possible, but we will not be liable to you for any losses caused as a result of such delay. Please note delivery times may vary depending on where you are located. Please refer to the product page for additional shipping details for a particular item.
5.2 Please ensure your address is completed correctly and a valid phone number is available at order. We do not take responsibility for lost or undelivered items if the address is incorrect.
5.3 You must be available to take delivery at the time or times when delivery could be possible. If no one is available at your address to sign for your order, the delivery partner may leave you a note and you will need to contact them to rearrange delivery.
5.4 In certain circumstances the delivery partner may provide you with optional services when delivering your order, such as: (a) signature release: opting out of the requirement to provide a signature on delivery; (b) leave with neighbour, reception or security: re-directing the delivery to a neighbour, reception or security; (c) reschedule a new delivery date: selecting a delivery date that best suits you; and/or (d) re-directing to a collection point: collecting your package from a collection point nearby. By selecting any of these services, including through any default preferences you may have selected with the delivery partner separately, you acknowledge and agree that we shall bear no responsibility or liability for any loss or damage that may result from delivering your order in that way.
6. Price and payment
6.1 The price of any Goods will be as quoted on the Site from time to time in pounds sterling (£), except in cases of obvious error. The price must be paid prior to any order being finalised.
6.2 Whilst we try to ensure that all details, descriptions and prices that appear on the Site are accurate, there may be cases where errors occur. If we discover an error in the price of any Goods that you have ordered, we will inform you of this as soon as possible and, give you the option of reconfirming your order at the correct price or cancelling it. If we are unable to contact you, your order will be treated as cancelled.
6.3 The prices quoted are exclusive of VAT (and the amount of any additional VAT will be indicated to you as part of the order process, if you are required to pay VAT).
6.4 It is your responsibility to find out about any and all customs fees, duties and taxes and pay these to the relevant authorities, as we do not have control over these costs.
7.1 Delivery charges for orders of Goods to be delivered to anywhere on the mainland UK, the Isle of Man or the Channel Islands are stated on the Site – unless any delivery restrictions apply to particular Goods or places. In relation to international delivery, the countries or territories that we can deliver to will be listed in the country dropdown box and delivery prices will be shown as part of the checkout process.
7.2 Alternative delivery options may be available. Please check our Site regarding estimated delivery times and prices for these.
8. The Goods
8.1 Once the Goods have been delivered to you intact, we provide no guarantee or warranty. It is your obligation to take care of the Goods and we accept no liability in relation to them once delivered to your address.
8.2 We attempt to be as accurate as possible in the description of the Goods displayed on the Site. However, we cannot guarantee that all details are always accurate, complete or error free. Please contact us if you would like more information about the Goods. The images of the Goods on the Site are for illustrative purposes only, and although we attempt to display colours accurately, we cannot guarantee that your computer's display of the images accurately reflects the true colour of the Goods.
8.3 The Goods sold are supplied for your domestic and private use only. You agree that you will not use the Goods for any commercial, business or re-sale purposes. We shall have no liability to you for any loss of profit, loss of business, interruption of business, or loss of business opportunity.
8.4 You should follow all instructions contained on or within the Goods. We shall accept no liability or obligation to you due to incorrect use. Use of the Goods in conjunction with each other, or with other products, can have unintended consequences to health and/or the risk of pregnancy – we accept no liability to you and provide no guarantees as to the effectiveness of the Goods for any purpose.
