Order and acceptance
An order can only be made on-line using the Website www.thefinecottoncompany.com by following the instructions given on the Website. We must receive payment in full before your order can be accepted and your order constitutes an offer to us to purchase our goods described in your order.
After placing an order, you will receive an e-mail from us acknowledging that we have received your order. Please note this does not mean your order has been accepted. All orders are subject to acceptance by us, and we will confirm such acceptance to you by sending you an e-mail that confirms the goods have been dispatched.
Your contract with us
Our acceptance of your order forms a legally binding contract between us and will only be formed when we send you the despatch confirmation. The contract is binding on you and us and on our respective successors and assigns. You may not transfer, assign, charge or otherwise dispose of a contract, or any of your rights or obligations arising under it, without our prior written consent. We may transfer, assign, charge, sub-contract or otherwise dispose of a contract, or any of our rights or obligations arising under it, at any time during the term of the contract.
Despatch and delivery
We will endeavour to despatch the goods to you within three working days after sending the order confirmation. A list of our delivery charges is listed on our website. Please note that the delivery charges apply to addresses within the United Kingdom, Europe and Worldwide.
Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for further details of overseas delivery charges.
We will arrange for the delivery of the goods to the address you specify - please ensure you include a postal code (PO Box addresses are not acceptable). Delivery times may vary and we do not guarantee to deliver within a specific period of time. Please be aware that a signature may be required upon delivery so please provide a delivery address where a person will be able to sign for your goods.
Risk and ownership
Risk of loss and damage to the goods passes to you at the time of delivery, or if you fail to take delivery, the time when we tried to deliver. Ownership of the goods only passes to you when the goods have been delivered and provided we have received cleared payment in full.
Prices and payment
Payment for all products must be made by credit or debit card at the time of placing an order. We only accept payment by Visa, MasterCard, Delta, and Switch. All credit/debit cardholders are subject to validation checks and authorisation by the card issuer. If the issuer of your payment card refuses to or does not, for any reason, authorise payment to us, we will not be liable for any delay or non delivery of your order.
All prices are shown in £s sterling and include VAT but exclude delivery costs, which will be added to the total amount due.
Prices are liable to change at any time, but changes will not affect orders in respect of which we have already sent you a despatch confirmation. It is possible that, despite our best efforts, some of the prices on our website may be incorrect. We are under no obligation to provide the goods to you at the incorrect (lower) price, even after we have sent you a despatch confirmation, if the pricing error is obvious and unmistakeable and could have been reasonably recognised by you as a mis-pricing.
Our security policy
Our designated bank uses the SAGE PAY online secure finance system. Should your credit/debit card be used fraudulently as a result of being used to buy from our website due to circumstances outside of our control such as hackers, we will use our reasonable endeavours to work with your credit/debit card company to assist you.
