At Vertbaudet we pride ourselves on the quality of our products. So much so that we offer a 6 month guarantee on any item you buy. We will refund the cost of any item that doesn’t live up to your expectations. Your statutory rights as a consumer are unaffected.
• Conditions of Sale
Our contract with you
After you have placed your order we will send you an order acknowledgement by email. Your order is only considered accepted (and a contract formed between us) when we dispatch the goods to you.
We will not be held wholly or partly responsible for any circumstances beyond our reasonable control, which cause the delay or failure to deliver the goods or services, or to comply with any other obligation.
Postage and packing costs just £3.99 per order, no matter how large or small, or free when you spend £60 or more. This charge remains the same whatever the size of your order. When goods are in our warehouse and are in stock we deliver within 5-10 working days of approving your order. If delivery is likely to be longer, we will give you a likely delivery date. If, for example, an item is unavailable, we may send an alternative, which you can return, free of charge, if it is unsuitable. We reserve the right to accept in part or in full, or decline, any order or request for credit.
• Your use of the products
All our products are for domestic use only. If you intend to use them for business, then you must check that they are suitable. You may also invalidate any warranty if the products are used for business purposes.
Using the product for domestic purposes: We will be responsible for any loss that you suffer as a result of a product’s failure, provided the reason for its failure was reasonably foreseeable by both you and us when the contract was completed.
Using the product for business purposes: We will not be responsible for any economic loss including, but not limited to, loss of profit, revenue, contracts, savings, loss of data, goodwill or reputation. Our maximum liability will be limited to the replacement value of the product.
Whether products have been used for domestic or business purposes, Vertbaudet does not, by law, limit or exclude its liability for death or personal injury caused by negligence, breach of duty, gross negligence or willful misconduct. This clause does not affect the rights given to you by law as a consumer.
• Returning goods to us
We provide a free exchanges and returns service so you can return items without paying return postage. You have 14 days from receipt of your order to return any item. Items must be returned in original condition. Once we receive items, we refund the cost of those items using the method you used to pay. The standard delivery or Next Day Delivery P&P charge you paid (if any) will not be refunded but you will not pay return postage.
We recommend you use the above free returns service where we manage the safe return once you hand items to your local Hermes courier but you also have the right to return items under Consumer Protection (Distance Selling) Regulations 2000 by giving notice of cancellation in writing or another durable medium within 7 working days starting on the day after the day of delivery. However, if you opt to cancel under the Regulations, you must arrange and pay for the return of items and take care to ensure returned items are received undamaged. Once we receive items, we will refund the cost of those items using the method you used to pay. If you cancel an entire order transaction and the order was delivered by standard delivery (rather than Next Day Delivery), we will also refund the £3.99 P&P charge you paid (if any. If you cancel an entire order transaction delivered by Next Day Delivery, the terms are slightly different. Next Day Delivery is an additional service provided under a separate contract and can only be cancelled under the above Regulations by giving notice of cancellation in writing or another durable medium up to the point at which we start to provide that additional service. If, after choosing and paying for Next Day Delivery, you cancel an entire order transaction under the Regulations within 7 working days after delivery, we will only refund the £3.99 standard delivery charge and not the additional £1.99 charge for Next Day Delivery.
Contact details for cancelling orders under the Regulations are as follows::- Returns Dept, Vertbaudet, 2 Navigation Walk, Bridge Street, Wakefield, West Yorkshire, WF1 5RH; or firstname.lastname@example.org.
