TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF SALE AND USE OF SITE
1. Returns and Refunds (Your right to cancel)
Under the Distance Selling Regulations the customer is given the right to return unwanted goods. This "cooling-off" period gives you 21 working days in which to cancel your order without giving a reason. The period starts the day after the day that goods are received. During this time you are only required to cancel the order and are not obliged to return the goods within the 21 working days. Goods must be returned in uword condition with full packaging and labels still attached.
Please note: Distance Selling Regulations DO NOT apply to Business to Business contracts. Business Customers are defined as Sole Traders, Partnerships, Limited companies etc. purchasing goods from us by Internet, Mail Order, Over the Phone or by Proforma Invoice for use at their business. SEE BELOW for Business to Business terms & conditions.
If you wish to cancel an order within the 21 day cooling-off period, you may do so providing the goods are in a re-saleable condition. This means unused and complete with original packing. To execise this right please contact us by any of the methods displayed on this website. We will need confirmation in writing, as well as your name, address and invoice number.
Please ensure when returning goods that you use a reputable delivery service that can provide evidence that they have delivered the goods back to us. We can arrange a reasonably priced courier collection service for larger items, please contact us for details. Please ensure that items for return are packed with sufficient care to ensure damage does not occur in transit. We will not accept responsibility for damage to returned items caused by insufficient packaging. In most cases, sufficient packaging means inside a strong cardboard box with adequate internal cushioning around the product.
When exercising the right to cancel, goods are to be returned at the customer's cost. However, refunds are not dependent on the goods being returned. If goods are not returned to us after a customer has exercised the right to cancel, we require that they are made available for collection. The direct cost of collection will be deducted from the refund. We will refund the full amount of the goods (excluding delivery/collection costs) within 30 days of your cancellation. In the event that the Arthur & Ascot UK Ltd is to refund full or partial payments, refunds will be made by the same means in which the original order was placed. Customers who paid by credit or debit card will be refunded directly to their credit or debit cards. Customers who paid by cheque will be refunded by cheque. All refunds will be made within 30 days of agreement to make a refund.

If you are ordering from outside the EU, the Distance Selling Regulations do not apply and you will not be entitled to a full refund if you wish to cancel. If you wish to cancel an order from outside the EU please contact us. The buyer is responsible for all customs and excise charges for the goods entering your country, if payment of these charges is refused, Arthur & Ascot UK Ltd is charged this amount and we will recover the monies from the buyer.
3. Faulty Goods and Warranty Issues
This section is in addition to individual manufacturer’s warranties and details the process by which some products can be returned to Arthur & Ascot UK Ltd under warranty for repair or replacement.
Please notify us within 7 days of delivery if you believe you have received faulty goods. Faults occurring after the 7-day period are still covered by the Sales of Good Act (1979) and also by the individual manufacturer's warranties that come with our products.
Please call in advance before returning faulty items as it may be that we can rectify problems without the item being returned. If this is not possible, we will pay for faulty goods to be returned to our premises (UK only) and forwarded to you after replacement/repair, for a period of up to 30 days after you receive them. Outside the United Kingdom, shipping must be paid by the warranty holder. If goods returned during this period are found to be without faults, or if a fault is caused by damage or misuse, you will be responsible for paying our collection and subsequent delivery costs before they can be returned to you. If the fault is the result of damage or misuse, you will also be responsible for the cost of any repair or replacement that you request. Misuse includes failing to take reasonable care of the product.
After 30 days has elapsed from receipt of an order, the customer is responsible for the cost of returning faulty goods. If a fault is found to have occurred due to accidental damage, misuse or expected wear and tear you will be informed of the cost of repair/replacement and return delivery. When payment is received, the goods will be returned to you. If the product has a manufacturing defect that is covered by guarantee we will assist in organising warranty support. Please note that with many products Arthur & Ascot UK Ltd does not deal directly with warranties/repairs and will pass your details to, or ask you to contact the company that does. Repairs and replacements will be subject to that company's Terms and Conditions in such cases.
Arthur & Ascot UK Ltd cannot be held responsible for the manufacturer’s warranties of a product if the manufacturer of that product ceases trading, goes into liquidation or is declared bankrupt.
