3 Prices and VAT
3.1 All our prices are stated in Pounds Sterling (£) and include Value Added Tax.
3.2 Our VAT number is 68491773.
3.3 We clearly show you the price you have to pay for our products. If, by mistake, we have under-priced a product, we will not have to deliver that produce to you at the stated price, provided that we tell you before we post the product. You can then decide if you still want the product.
4 Order acceptance
4.1 Our products are sold for personal use only. There will be no contract of any kind between you and us unless and until we actually dispatch the products to you. Your order is an offer to buy from us, so nothing that we do or say will amount to any acceptance of that offer until we actually send the products to you. At any point up until then, we may decide not to send the products to you without giving any reason. At the moment that the goods are dispatched (and not before), a contract will be made between you and us, and you will be charged for the products.
5 Delivery and charges
5.1 The cost of packing and delivery is clearly displayed for your approval prior to confirming your order. For detailed packing and delivery information please refer to thehairshop.co.uk.
5.2 Our despatch within the UK is usually 24-48 hours. Our delivery is usually within 4-7 days. Reasonable allowance should be made for orders made over the weekend and at National Holidays. We do our best to deliver within 30 days of the date of your order but shall not be liable for loss occasioned by delay in delivery arising out of any cause beyond our control.
6 Cancellation and return
6.1 You have the right to cancel your order at any time up to 7 working days after the day following the delivery of the goods by contacting our Customer Services department by telephone, email or post. Your right to cancel is on the basis that we will be able to re-sell the goods to another customer as new when you return them to us; so please do not use or open any sealed packaging. If you have any questions about the goods or need help on deciding whether or not to keep them, please contact Customer Services for more information.
6.2 If the products have already been posted to you, you must return the products to us at the time of cancellation and we will credit your credit or debit card with the price of the products within 30 days beginning with the day on which notice of cancellation was given. You should return products to The Hair Shop, 39/40 Buckingham Gate, London SW1E 6BS UK enclosing a copy of the original invoice. When returning goods we recommend that you use recorded delivery, or obtain a proof of posting (a proof of posting can be obtained free of charge at any Post Office).
6.3 If you do not return the goods within 7 days of your cancellation, we will make a charge in respect of the cost of recovering the goods. If you do not return the goods or fail to make them available for collection within 30 days of your notice of cancellation, you will be deemed to have accepted the goods, at which point a new purchase contract will be made and you will be charged for your order at the price set out on the web site.
