A binding contract, on these Terms, will come into existence when we accept an order from you.
You will have the opportunity to review and amend that order before you finally confirm it.
When you make an order with us, we will send you an email acknowledging that order and its value. The acknowledgement is not an acceptance of your order and we have the right to decline any order for any reason before we accept it.
We will tell you, by email, when we have despatched your order (or any part of it), and that email will count as our acceptance of that order.
We may (for stock availability reasons) despatch any order in one or more batches but we will tell you when we accept the order if we propose to do that.
If, for any reason, we cannot supply the Product you have ordered, even after we have accepted your order, as long as we refund all money you have paid us, we will have no further liability to you.
You warrant that you are buying the Product for your personal use and not as part of a business.
You will own the Product as soon as we have passed it to our carrier and, unless we have agreed to insure them in transit, they will be sent at your risk.
DÖTCH BAG CLUB Limited prices its Products in a series of currencies but payment is taken in US Dollars (the amount will be shown to you at the time you place your order) and the currency exchange rate you will be charged will be that charged by your bank at the time it processes the transaction. We have no control over that rate.
We will display the total price of your order, including all delivery charges, at checkout.
Our prices include local taxes and duties only for EU countries if delivery is made by DHL. For all other deliveries, you must pay all taxes and duties appropriate to your location. We will supply a commercial invoice showing the price we have been charged for the Product to assist in the valuation of the Product. This invoice does not include our operating and other costs.
We always try to describe all of our Products accurately but we can never guarantee that small changes will not occur in manufacture.
The colour and nature of our Products may vary from time to time. This is usually due to the natural products we use and should not alter the quality or performance of that Product.
The images we use may not look the same on our screens as they will on yours.
All measurements/sizes we publish are subject to minor variations in manufacture.
Any Product you buy from us will be despatched to you in the manner you have selected on the Site but, although we will do our best, we cannot guarantee that any delivery time quoted will be met and we will not be liable for any delay which may occur.
We can deliver only to the address, and in the manner, you have specified when ordering.
If we offer free delivery on any Product, delivery will be by the method we choose.
We will do our best to comply with any delivery instructions you specify but cannot guarantee to do so and we will have no liability if we do not comply with them. If you have any such instructions, they must be clearly displayed in your order.
Please ensure that you provide the correct delivery address as any mistakes cannot be rectified and/or compensated for once we have shipped your order.
If delivery of your order is not possible for any reason, which may include (but not by way of limitation) an incorrect address, no one being available to sign for or collect the order, an additional charge will be made to cover the additional delivery and administration costs.
You must ensure that we can make the delivery. We have the right to charge additional delivery charges if a delivery is refused.
If you are a trade customer, delivery may take longer to ship and we are not responsible for any delays which may occur.
Delivery charges and information are shown.

CANCELLATION AND RETURNS
If you are buying any Product from us as a consumer then the following provisions apply.
We cannot offer Cancellation or Return on Products which we have personalised for you. You will be entitled to a refund, repair or replacement only of defective Products and, then, subject to the following terms.
If you do not want the Product, our Cancellation and Returns Policy will apply.

Refunds, repairs and/or replacements will be issued only upon our receipt of the returned Product in unused, original condition, in the original packaging and with all original labels and original tags attached and any with seals present unbroken and intact.
You will need to ensure that the return is suitably packed to avoid damage and we recommend that you insure the Product to its full value whilst it is in transit to us. We suggest that you obtain a Certificate of Posting or other proof that you have sent the Product to us, as you may need this to claim on any insurance policy you take up.
We will only issue a refund when the Product has been returned to us and we will thoroughly inspect all returned Products before issuing any refund to ensure that they comply with these Terms.
We may reduce the amount we refund to you in the following circumstances:
- you have used and enjoyed the Product;
- you do not tell us in a timely manner;
- if the individual packaging has been opened;
- if we gave you a discount when you made your order because the Product was old or damaged.
If you have used or damaged the Product, you will not be entitled to any refund.
If you receive a Product which:
- is of unsatisfactory quality; or
- is not fit for its purpose; or
- does not match the description of the Product that you ordered from us; or

- has been damaged in transit,
You must tell us, by emailing us at: email@example.com, as soon as possible and within 30 days of delivery, to arrange for its return. We may ask for photographic evidence of any issue, and the Product must not be returned until you have heard from us. We will pay the reasonable return shipment costs.
You agree, for the purposes of the Consumer Contracts (Information, Cancellation and Additional Charges) Regulations 2013, that we may confirm the terms of the agreement between you and us and the Product we are selling by email.
Any failure to comply with these provisions may mean that your right to a refund is lost.
If you are not buying as a consumer we will not accept returns.
We will provide you with a postal address upon you notifying us that you will be returning your order.
PLEASE NOTE THAT OUR POSTAL ADDRESS IS A HANDLING FACILITY AND DOES NOT HAVE SALES OR OTHER STAFF WHO CAN HELP WITH ANY RETURNS.
