1. INFORMATION ABOUT US
1.1 We operate the website www.boodles.com. We are Boodle and Dunthorne Limited, a company registered in England and Wales under company number (472968) and with our registered office at 178 New Bond Street, London W1S 4RH. Our VAT number is GB163537754.
2. SERVICE AVAILABILITY
2.1 Our site is only intended for use by people resident in the countries listed on this page. We do not accept orders from individuals outside those countries. Where orders are inadvertently accepted from outside those countries, we reserve the right to cancel the order without liability to the Customer. The Customer will receive a full refund for any payment made, subject at our discretion to our withholding our reasonable costs and always pursuant to 6.4 below. Some restrictions may be placed on the extent to which we accept orders from specific countries. These restrictions (if any) can be found on our Serviced Countries page. Please review our Serviced Countries page before ordering Products from us.
3. YOUR STATUS
By placing an order through our site, you warrant that:
(a) you are legally capable of entering into binding contracts; and
(b) you are at least 18 years old;
(c) you are resident in one of the Serviced Countries; and
(d) you are accessing our site from that country;
(e) there are no trade embargoes within that country which would prevent your import of the Product.
4. HOW THE CONTRACT IS FORMED BETWEEN YOU AND US
4.1 After placing an order through the site, you will receive an email from us acknowledging that we have received your order. Please note that this does not mean that your order has been accepted. Your order constitutes an offer to us to buy a Product. All orders are subject to acceptance by us, and we will confirm such acceptance to you by sending you an email that confirms that the Product has been dispatched (Dispatch Confirmation). This process also applies where orders are placed by telephone or other Distance Sales. The contract between us (Contract) will only be formed when we send you the Dispatch Confirmation or the order is otherwise dispatched.
4.2 The Contract will relate only to those dispatched Products. We will not be obliged to supply any other Products which may have been part of your order until the dispatch of such Products. Where we have been provided with an email address, this will be confirmed in a separate Dispatch Confirmation.
4.3 Boodles has in place a policy of ethical sourcing of stones and other materials for the Products. However some countries have embargoes relating to the ban of certain stones or raw materials, such as Burmese rubies into the United States of America. In certain circumstances a Product may not be returned to Boodles due to similar embargoes by the EU or UK. It is you responsibility to ensure that the Product you are buying does not breach the rules applicable in the country to which the Product is shipped so preventing us from supplying the Product to you (and potentially incurring costs if the Product is returned to us from the border), and that if required, it is capable of return to us in the UK as we are unable to offer you a refund. If you have any doubts or queries, you should contact our customer sales team for further information and see 6.3 below.
5. OUR STATUS
5.1 We may also provide links on our site to the websites of other companies, whether affiliated with us or not. We cannot give any undertaking that products you purchase from third party sellers through our site, or from companies to whose website we have provided a link on our site, will be of satisfactory quality, and any such warranties are DISCLAIMED by us absolutely. We will notify you when a third party is involved in a transaction, and we may disclose your personal information related to that transaction to the third party seller.
If you are contracting as a consumer, this DISCLAIMER does not affect your statutory rights against us. If you would like information about your legal rights you should contact your local trading standards or Citizens Advice Bureau.
6. CONSUMER CANCELLATION RIGHTS
6.1 If you are contracting as a consumer under the Regulations, you have a statutory right to cancel for any reason and receive a full refund, except in the case of certain products listed in clauses 6.3 and 6.4. You will receive a full refund of the price paid for the Products in accordance with our refunds policy (set out in clause 10 below). Your statutory right to cancel a Contract starts from the date of the Dispatch Confirmation. If the Products have been delivered to you, you may cancel at any time within fourteen days, starting from the day after you receive the Products, or where the Products are dispatched in stages, 14 days from the date you received the last delivery.
6.2 To cancel a Contract, you must inform us of the cancellation within the period stated above. We have also provided a cancellation form for your use, though you need not use the cancellation form provided. If you use the cancellation form provided, we will acknowledge receipt of your cancellation in writing. If the Products have been delivered to you, you must also return the Products to us as soon as reasonably practicable. For orders within the UK, we will cover the cost of return delivery by accepted means. Costs for the return of products from outside the UK may, at our entire discretion, be payable by the customer. You have a legal obligation to take reasonable care of the Products whilst they are in your possession.
6.3 Please see our terms and conditions of business which contain important provisions relating to the return of certain Products which contain stones or materials which may be the subject of UK or EU trade embargoes and which are therefore not capable of return. In such circumstances, we are unable to offer a refund.
6.4 You will not have any right to cancel a Contract for the supply of any made-to-measure order or personalised products.
6.5 Details of your statutory right of cancellation, and an explanation of how to exercise it, are provided in the Dispatch Confirmation. This provision is in addition to and does not affect your other statutory rights as a consumer under the Regulations or under any other English or applicable European law or regulation for the protection of the customer. Clause 25.2 provides an alternative form of resolving any dispute you may have with us,that we are unable to fully resolve ourselves.
Save in respect of clause 6.3, this clause 6 only applies if you are contracting as a consumer.
7. AVAILABILITY AND DELIVERY
7.1 The Products which we display cover a selection of designs available through our shops and concessions in the UK and Ireland. Whilst we make every effort to give you an accurate impression of our Products, please note that images may not be to scale and colours shown are as accurate as internet and photographic technology reasonably allows.
7.2 Not all stock will be available at every shop. If you intend to visit one of our shops, we would advise that you confirm with the particular shop beforehand to confirm the availability of the Product you are considering purchasing. We will normally arrange to have Products transferred to a shop for viewing and sale purposes.
7.3 Your order will be fulfilled by the delivery date set out in the Dispatch Confirmation or, if no delivery date is specified, then within 30 days of the date of the Dispatch Confirmation, unless there are exceptional circumstances.
8. RISK AND TITLE
8.1 The Products will be your responsibility from the time of delivery.
8.2 Ownership of the Products will only pass to you when we receive full payment of all sums due in respect of the Products, including delivery charges, where applicable.
9. PRICE AND PAYMENT
9.1 The price of the Products and our delivery charges will be as quoted on our site from time to time, except in cases of obvious error.
9.2 Product prices include VAT, where applicable. However, if the rate of VAT changes between the date of your order and the date of delivery, where applicable, we will adjust the VAT you pay, unless you have already paid for the Products in full before the change in VAT takes effect.
9.3 Product prices and delivery charges are liable to change at any time, but changes will not affect orders in respect of which we have already sent you a Dispatch Confirmation.
9.4 Our site contains a large number of Products and it is always possible that, despite our best efforts, some of the Products listed on our site may be incorrectly priced. We will normally verify prices as part of our dispatch procedures so that, where a Product's correct price is less than our stated price, we will charge the lower amount when dispatching the Product to you. If a Product’s correct price is higher than the price stated on our site, we will normally, at our discretion, either contact you for instructions before dispatching the Product at the correct price, or reject your order and notify you that we are rejecting it.
9.5 If the pricing error is obvious and unmistakeable and could have reasonably been recognised by the average customer as an error, we do not have to provide the Products to you at the incorrect (lower) price even where we have provided a dispatch confirmation.
9.6 Payment for all online Products can be made by either credit/debit card or by bank transfer. If you are paying by credit/debit card, we will obtain pre-authorisation from your issuing bank/credit company to apply the debit against you card and we will charge your credit or debit card at the point of Dispatch Confirmation being sent. We reserve the right to apply the debit earlier if we deem it appropriate. If the Product is not available, we will credit monies taken back to the card account from which they came.
If you are paying by bank transfer we will confirm receipt of payment with you once your funds have arrived in our bank account. We will then contact you to arrange shipment of the Product. If the Product is not available, we will return monies taken to the bank account from which they came. We sell in pounds sterling, you are responsible for any shortfall as a result of currency fluctuation where payment is made other than n pound sterling.
10. OUR REFUNDS POLICY
10.1 If you return a Product to us:
(a) if you are contracting as a consumer under the Regulations, because you have cancelled the Contract between us within the fourteen-day cooling-off period (see clause 6.1 above), we will process the refund due to you as soon as possible and, in any case, within 14 days of the day on which you returned the Product to us. In this case, we will refund the price of the Product in full.
(b) for any other reason (for instance, because you have notified us in accordance with clause 24 that you do not agree to a change in these terms and conditions or in any of our policies, or because you consider that the Product is defective), we will examine the returned Product and will notify you of our findings and (where applicable) confirm your refund (or our reasons why we believe you are not entitled to a refund) via email within a reasonable period of time. We will usually process the refund due to you as soon as possible and, in any case, within 14 days of the day we confirmed to you via email that you were entitled to a refund. We will refund the price of a defective Product in full. Refunds will not be available where we reasonably find that the Product has been damaged following delivery to you. For refunds not covered by the Regulations, where we accept that the goods are faulty, we may, at our discretion refund a proportion of the price where we find that the Product has suffered wear and tear as a result of your possession of it. Please refer to your obligations contained in clause 10.3 below.
10.2 We will refund any money received from you, normally by using the same method originally used by you to pay for your purchase. We will not be liable to you for any fluctuation in currency exchange rates.
10.3 If you wish to return a Product to us, either under the rights provided by the Regulations or if you believe the Product is damaged or is the subject of a fault, and you are relying upon your statutory rights and/or you believe that the Product is covered by our warranty, you should not make further use of the Product. Use of the product can in circumstances outside of the Regulations lead to a reduction in the amount of refund you may be entitled to.
We warrant to you that any Product purchased from us through our site will, on delivery and for the following 12 months, conform in all material respects with its description, be of satisfactory quality, and be reasonably fit for all the purposes for which products of that kind are commonly supplied.
