Terms & Conditions
We are Childrensalon Ltd. We operate the website at childrensalon.com (the "Site").
We are a company registered in England and Wales with company number 04997666. Our registered office is 9 High Street, Tunbridge Wells, Kent, TN1 1UL, England. Our registered VAT number is 929 3652 93. If you need to contact us, see our Contact us page.
If you place an order on the Site you will also be contracting with Childrensalon Services Limited whose registered office is at 21 Decimus Park, Kingstanding Way, Tunbridge Wells, Kent, TN2 3GP, (VAT number 159 9120 84) ("CSSL") for certain services relating to your order.
Ordering Products From the Site
When you place an order via the Site for a product, we will send you an order confirmation email listing each product you have requested to buy and an estimated delivery or collection date for those items. Our order confirmation email is not acceptance of your order by us.
Once payment has been made for the products you have ordered, we will instruct CSSL to arrange for the products to be delivered to you or made ready for collection (depending on which option you select when placing your order) and to send you a despatch/ready for collection email. This email confirms that your order has been accepted by us and that a contract is formed.
Where products are despatched/made ready for collection separately, our acceptance of your offer in respect of each product takes place when we despatch such product/make such product available for collection.
We reserve the right not to accept your order. This may occur where we are unable to obtain authorisation for payment, shipping restrictions apply to a particular item, or the item ordered is out of stock or does not satisfy our quality control standards and is withdrawn.
Price and Payment
The price of any products will be as quoted on our Site from time to time, except in cases of obvious error. These prices are shown in GBP and include UK VAT (if applicable) but exclude delivery costs, which will be added to the total amount due. See our Delivery Policy for more information on this.
If you have selected an alternative country where UK VAT is not chargeable because the product is to be exported from the UK to a non-EU country, or if you have selected a product where VAT is not chargeable, then VAT is automatically excluded from your purchase.
All prices and offers remain valid as advertised from time to time. The GBP price of a product displayed on the Site at the time of order is accepted and will be honoured, except in cases of obvious error or if there is legal reason why we cannot honour the order at that price.
Prices shown in any currency that is not GBP may be an approximation at the existing currency exchange rate. The final price you pay will be calculated in accordance with the applicable exchange rate on the day your card issuer processes the transaction. Please note that we do not have any control over how much your card issuer may charge for such transactions.
Import duty or tax costs may be invoiced to you directly from an import broker appointed by CSSL, your local courier company, your national Government or any local Government or controlling body that has the power to raise such duties or taxes in accordance with the law in your country. We have no control over how much tax or duty any such body may charge and we recommend that you contact your local customs authority to determine a landed cost price prior to completing your purchase.
We are unable to offer price adjustment on items originally purchased in a sale or on any special promotion items that are temporarily reduced in price. Once an item has been purchased at a discounted sale price, no price adjustment will be offered should the item be further reduced.
Promotion codes are non-transferable and there is no cash alternative. Furthermore, they cannot be used in conjunction with any other promotion code or offers, and must be redeemed by the date published, if provided.
We accept payment via the payment methods shown in our FAQs.
By placing an order on the Site, you confirm that the payment details provided by you are valid and that, if you are using a credit/debit card, it belongs to you or you have been specifically authorised by the owner of the credit/debit card to use it. You confirm that when your order is accepted and processed by us, payment will be made in full.
Availability of Products
We will always try to fulfil orders, but our only responsibility to you where a product is no longer available, or if we are unable to supply a particular product for whatever reason, is to make sure we do not charge you for the product.
All orders are subject to acceptance and availability, and items in your shopping basket are not reserved and may be purchased by other customers.
With our prior written permission, it may be possible for you to hold an order for later purchase. If we give that permission we will do our best to prevent that item being sold to another customer but we cannot guarantee it. In all cases, holding orders will be subject to a limited amount of time.
We do not accept advance payment for out of stock items but you may choose to use a feature of the Site (if it is available for the product in question) to register your email address with us for notification of arrival of the selected merchandise not held in stock.
If you have registered your email address for notification of the arrival of a specific product shown on our Site, we will attempt to notify you by email within 24 hours of the product becoming available on the Site. On occasion certain products that are in particularly high demand may sell out during this period. The notification to you of the returning stock does not imply that the product is being held for you.
We will store a record of your transactions for a minimum of one year subject to any unforeseen event. You may view your purchases in your account up to, and usually beyond, this time. If you do not wish us to store a record of your purchases in your account please Contact us to discuss.
Delivery and Collection
You may choose to collect your products from our store ("Click and Collect"), arrange for your products to be collected by your own courier, or you may choose to have your products delivered to an address of your choice.
Where you select Click and Collect we will send you an email to notify you when your product is ready for collection. You will need to bring this email with you, along with some ID, when you collect the product.
All products will be packaged and prepared for delivery or collection by CSSL and you will be contracting separately with CSSL in this regard. If you have opted for your products to be delivered by us, CSSL will arrange delivery of your products to your chosen address. You agree to be bound by CSSL's terms and conditions in relation to your contract with them, which shall be no less than the Royal Mail's terms and conditions of delivery.
All delivery charge prices shown on the Site or confirmed to you, as levied by CSSL, are inclusive of any applicable UK VAT. We collect from you any delivery charges levied by CSSL on behalf of CSSL and we pass those sums to CSSL on your behalf.
If you have opted for your products to be delivered by CSSL, CSSL's delivery charge will be itemised as 'delivery' on the delivery and order confirmation pages of the Site and in emails from us and CSSL.
You will be the importer for all international deliveries of products. Therefore, before placing an order for a product, please check that your import of any products complies with any applicable import regulations, and that there are no local requirements or restrictions which may affect receipt of your products.
CSSL insures products during the time they are in transit until they are delivered to your specified delivery address. CSSL (or their delivery agent) requires a signature for any goods delivered, at which point responsibility for your purchased products passes to you. If you have specified a recipient who is not you for delivery purposes (for example as a gift) then you accept that evidence of a signature by them (or at that delivery address) is evidence of delivery and fulfilment by CSSL and transfer of responsibility in the same way.
Delivery dates are estimated from the point of despatch and are not guaranteed. Neither we nor CSSL are responsible for any delays caused by destination customs clearance processes.
You have the right to cancel your order, provided you give us written notice within 21 days after you receive a product.
If you cancel your order you must return the product to us, including all branded packaging. You have a duty to take good care of the products while they are in your possession.
You can still try the product on or inspect it to see if it is right for you, but we ask that you treat our products with the same care as you would in our store. Please try to keep the tags on, do not remove hygiene seals or stickers and retain the original packaging (including authenticity cards, dust bags and leather tags) as neatly as you can.
You will be responsible for the cost of sending the product back to us if you change your mind. If we do not receive the product back we may arrange for collection of the product from you at your cost.
To let us know you have changed your mind and wish to cancel your order, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please keep a copy of your cancellation email. Once you have emailed us, please follow the instructions in Delivery and Returns on how to return the product to us.
We will issue you with a refund within 30 days of receipt of cancellation, including the cost of delivering the products to you, if applicable (unless you arranged your own courier).
We issue refunds via the payment method you used to place the order. If you would like to exchange your product(s) rather than be issued with a refund, please see our Returns FAQ.
