TERMS & CONDITIONS
Terms and Conditions
These are the terms and conditions of supply for www.stratum-london.com (the “Site”). The Site is operated by Stratum Concept Limited (“Stratum”, “we”, “us” and “our”). We are a limited company, registered in England. Our registered company number is 08878772, and our registered office is at 26 Margaretta Terrace, London, SW3 5NU.
We reserve the right to change these terms and conditions from time to time by changing them on the Site, although no such change will affect any order you have already placed with us. These terms and conditions were last updated on 28.07.2017.
Ordering and Availability
Products may be ordered by clicking on the items you wish to purchase and then following the prompts that will appear on-screen. You may check and correct any input errors in your order up until the point at which you submit your order to us by clicking the “Add to Basket” button on the checkout page.
After placing an order, you will receive an email from us acknowledging that we have received your order and giving you an order reference number. 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.
We are not obliged to accept your order and may, at our discretion, decline to accept any order. All Products are subject to availability and we reserve the right to refuse orders of more than 20 units of stock. You do, however, acknowledge that by clicking on the “Add to Basket” button, you enter into an obligation to pay for the Product(s) in the event that your order is accepted by us. Where we accept your order, we will confirm such acceptance to you by sending you an email that confirms that the Product has been despatched (a “Despatch Confirmation”). The contract between you and us in relation to the Products ordered (the “Contract”) will only be formed when we send you the Despatch Confirmation. After entering into the Contract, we will be under a legal duty to supply you with goods that are in conformity with the Contract.
The Contract will relate only to those Products whose despatch we have confirmed in the Despatch Confirmation. We will not be obliged to supply any other Products which may have been part of your order until the despatch of such Products has been confirmed in a separate Despatch Confirmation.
Your order will be fulfilled by the delivery date set out in the Despatch Confirmation or, if no delivery date is specified, then within 30 days after the date of the Despatch Confirmation, unless there are exceptional circumstances.
Your order will be delivered to the delivery address you specify when placing your order.
If your delivery address is geographically remote, for example certain outlying islands or other isolated locations, it is possible that we may not be able to deliver there. If that is the case, we will notify you before we accept your order. We reserve the right not to deliver to any country that is prohibited by applicable export laws. Orders cannot be delivered to PO Box or similar addresses.
Products comprised within the same order cannot be delivered to different addresses.
Deliveries are made by [Royal Mail] in the UK and [xxxx] in the rest of the world and take place on Monday to Saturday (or other normal working week days in countries that do not follow a Western pattern of working week), excluding bank and public holidays, usually within the hours of 8am and 5pm. It is not possible to specify a precise time at which a delivery will take place. Please note that the courier may require deliveries to be signed for.
Deliveries will be made to your door.
If you order Products for delivery outside the United Kingdom, the order may be opened and inspected by customs authorities and may be subject to import duties and taxes which are levied when the delivery reaches the specified destination. You will be responsible for payment of any such import duties and taxes. Please note that we have no control over these charges and cannot predict their amount. Please contact your local customs office for further information before placing your order.
Please also note that you must comply with all applicable laws and regulations of the country for which the products are destined. We will not be liable for any breach by you of any such laws.
Risk and Ownership
Products ordered will be at your risk from the time of delivery. Ownership of the Products ordered will also pass to you on delivery, provided full payment of all sums due in respect of the Products, including any delivery charges, has been received.
Price and Payment
The price of Products is as quoted on the Site from time to time.
Prices include UK sales tax (“VAT”) but exclude delivery costs, which will be automatically added (at the cost shown) to the total amount due when you view the items in your shopping basket.
Prices and delivery costs 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 Products listed on the Site may be incorrectly priced. We will normally verify prices as part of our despatch procedures so that, where a Product’s correct price is less than our stated price, we will charge you the lower amount. If a Product’s correct price is higher than the price stated on the Site, we will normally, at our discretion, either contact you for instructions before despatching the Product, or reject your order and notify you of such rejection.
Payment for all orders must be made by [credit card, debit card or via Paypal] on the checkout page. We accept payment by most major credit and debit cards. We will not charge your credit or debit card until we despatch your order.
Please note that online payment transactions are subject to validation checks by your card issuer and we are not responsible if your card issuer declines to authorise payment for any reason. Please note that it is also possible that your card issuer may charge you an online handling fee or processing fee, for which we are not responsible.
Except in relation to certain Products set out below, you may cancel a Contract at any time before your order is delivered and up to 14 days afterwards, beginning on the day after your order (in its entirety) is delivered to you.
If you cancel, you will receive a full refund of the price paid for the Products in accordance with our refunds policy (see below).
To cancel a Contract, you must clearly inform us, preferably:
· in writing, giving us your name, address and order reference; or
· by completing our cancellation form available on the Site and returning it to the address specified in that form.
You must also return the Products to us within 14 days after the day of notifying us of the cancellation, in the same condition in which you receive them (which does not interfere with your right to take any reasonable steps to examine the Products and make sure they conform to your order). You have a legal obligation to take reasonable care of the Products while they are in your possession. If you fail to comply with this obligation, we may have a right to deduct the cost of any deterioration, up to the price of the Product, from the refund to which you are otherwise entitled.
You will not have any right to cancel a Contract for the supply of Products that have been personalised or made to your own bespoke specifications (if we offer such options), unless such Products were damaged or faulty when delivered to you or have been incorrectly delivered.
To return the Products, you should package the parcel securely (making sure you include a note of your name and address (enclosing any returns slip, if we have provided one) inside the parcel) and then return it to us by courier to the following address:
We advise that you take out enough postal/carriage insurance to cover the value of the contents. Please save your proof of posting/despatch and tracking information until your refund has been processed. You will be responsible for the cost and risk of returning the Products to us.
Details of the consumer rights described above, and an explanation of how to exercise them, are provided in the Despatch Confirmation. Nothing in this section affects your legal rights.
Refunds and Exchange
If you cancel a Contract between us within the 14-day cooling-off period (see above), we will process the refund due to you as soon as possible and, in any case, within 14 days after the day on which we receive the Products back or, if earlier, the day on which we receive evidence that you have returned the Products to our returns address (see above). We will refund the price of the Products in full (subject to any deduction we are entitled to make due to your use of or damage to the Products), including the cost of standard delivery. However, we will not refund your cost of returning the Products to us.
We will refund any money received from you using the same method originally used by you to pay for your purchase, unless agreed otherwise.
Subject to stock availability, we will exchange Products that are returned to us within 14 days of being received by you. Please note we can only exchange an item for the same item in a different size.
If any Product you order is damaged or faulty when delivered to you, you may have one or more legal remedies available to you, depending on when you make us aware of the problem, in accordance with your legal rights. If you believe a Product was delivered damaged or faulty, you should inform us as soon as possible, preferably in writing, giving your name, address and order reference. Nothing in this section affects your legal rights.
Whilst we have taken reasonable steps to depict Products as accurately as possible through the photographs and other images featured on the Site, the detailing (such as colour, pattern and texture, etc.) you see on-screen will depend on your monitor and, as such, may not exactly reflect the actual detailing of a Product when you receive it.
Any information on the Site regarding sizing of products is included as a guide only. If you are in any doubt as to the size of any product you require, we recommend that you contact us prior to placing an order (see Contacting us).
Online Dispute Resolution
When consumers have a problem with a trader regarding a product or service they bought, they can settle their dispute out-of-court through the European Commission’s Online Dispute Resolution (“ODR”) procedure.
Should you have a problem with Stratum products or services, you may access the ODR platform here.
Nothing in these terms and conditions shall limit or exclude our liability to you:
· for death or personal injury caused by our negligence;
· for fraudulent misrepresentation;
· for breach of any statutorily-implied term as to ownership of the Products;
· under Part I of the Consumer Protection Act 1987; or
· for any other liability that may not, under English law, be limited or excluded.
Subject to this, in no event shall we be liable to you for any business losses and any liability we do have for losses you suffer arising from any Contract shall not exceed the purchase price of the relevant Products and is strictly limited to losses that were reasonably foreseeable. Losses are foreseeable where they could be contemplated by you and us at the time your order is accepted by us.
We will not be liable or responsible for any failure to perform, or delay in performance of, any of our obligations under any Contract that is caused by events outside our reasonable control.
Ownership of Rights
All rights, including copyright, in the Site are owned by or licensed by Sus. Any use of the Site or its contents, including copying or storing it or them in whole or part, other than for your own personal, non-commercial use is prohibited without our permission. You may not modify, distribute or re-post anything on the Site for any purpose.
You may not transfer or assign any or all of your rights or obligations under any Contract.
All notices given by you to us must be given in writing to the address set out at the end of these terms and conditions. We may give notice to you at either the email or postal address you provide to us when placing an order.
If we fail to enforce any of our rights, that does not result in a waiver of that right.
If any provision of these terms and conditions is found to be unenforceable, all other provisions shall remain unaffected.
These terms and conditions may not be varied except with our express written consent.
These terms and conditions and any document expressly referred to in them represent the entire agreement between you and us in relation to the subject matter of any Contract. We are required by law to advise you that Contracts may be concluded in the English language
only and that no public filing requirements apply.
If any court or competent authority decides that any of the provisions of these terms and conditions is invalid, unlawful or unenforceable to any extent, the term will, to that extent only, be severed from the remaining terms, which will continue to be valid to the fullest extent permitted by law.
These terms and conditions shall be governed by and construed in accordance with English law, and you agree that any dispute between you and us regarding them or any Contract will be subject to the exclusive jurisdiction of the courts of England and Wales.
Please submit any questions you have about these terms and conditions or an order you have placed or ordering in general by email to email@example.com or write to us at:
