3 Ordering Online
3.1 Having decided what you might like to purchase and adding it to your shopping cart our system will produce a final summary of what you are about to order and the cost involved. This constitutes our quotation for the products and delivery concerned. If you go ahead and place your order, this constitutes an offer to us to buy the goods. All orders are subject to acceptance by us, and no contract shall exist between us until we have confirmed your order by issuing your "Order Confirmation".
3.2 55-degrees.co.uk cannot accept your order until you have paid in full for the goods ordered and the delivery costs. Once payment has been processed for your transaction we will email you with your Order Confirmation and your Order Reference Number which will form the contract between us.
3.3 The contract will relate only to those goods whose despatch we have confirmed in the Order Confirmation. We will not be obliged to supply any other goods which may have been part of your order until the despatch of such goods has been confirmed in a separate Order Confirmation.
3.4 All correspondence concerning your order, including your Order Confirmation email, will be sent to the email address you provide on your order details. You are responsible for ensuring this email address is correct. As long as your Order Confirmation is sent to that email address, our sending it creates a legally binding contract between us whether or not you receive the email.
3.5 We may decline any order prior to issuing your Order Confirmation but will inform you of this as soon as possible, and will endeavour to advise you of our reasons for doing so.
3.6 The default setting on our website is for prices to be quoted inclusive of VAT at the current rate. In either case the prices shown are exclusive of postage and packaging which are separately calculated once the total quantity of goods being ordered is known.
3.7 All orders will be accepted in UK Sterling (GBP) only, and payment may be made only by credit or debit card.
3.8 The price of any goods will be as quoted on our site from time to time, except in cases of obvious error. Our site contains a large number of products and it is always possible that, despite our best efforts, some of the products listed on our site may be incorrectly priced. We will normally verify prices as part of our dispatch procedures so that, where a product's correct price is less than our stated price, we will charge the lower amount when dispatching the product to you. If a product’s correct price is higher than the price stated on our site, we will normally, at our discretion, either contact you for instructions before dispatching the product, or reject your order and notify you of such rejection. We are under no obligation to provide the product to you at the incorrect (lower) price, even after we have sent you an order confirmation, if the pricing error is obvious and unmistakable and could have reasonably been recognised by you as a mispricing.
3.9 We endeavour to ensure all descriptions, images and specifications are accurate at all times. In doing so we are aware that photographs can look different depending on your monitor settings and, as such, they are published for illustrative purposes only and we cannot guarantee that your monitor's display of any colour will accurately reflect the colour of the product on delivery.
3.10 Title in the goods shall not pass to you until you have paid for them and their delivery in full however all risk of loss of or damage to the goods shall pass to you upon delivery.
3.11 Please check your order carefully before submitting it. Whilst we are happy to replace or exchange any faulty or damaged goods and to comply with your cancellation rights set out in section 4 below, we cannot be held liable for user errors in the ordering process.

In such an event we will refund you in full in accordance with our Refunds section as set out below. This provision does not affect your statutory rights.

5. Goods Damaged in Transit
5.1 If the damage is immediately obvious on delivery then refuse to sign for the goods and they will be returned to us. In this instance please notify us immediately so we can liaise with the courier concerned and get a replacement item sent to you as soon as possible.
5.2 If you discover the damage subsequent to delivery having taken place then the goods should be returned to us immediately for our inspection.
5.3 Under no circumstances must items be used or worn when damaged. Before replacement goods or refunds can be issued, goods must be returned for our inspection and, if necessary, they may have to be returned to the manufacturer for testing.
5.4 Postage and packaging fees will be reimbursed for justified damage claims. Please keep receipts as necessary.
6.1 When you return a product to us:
(a) because you have cancelled the contract between us within the 28 day cancellation period (see section 4 above), we will process the refund due to you as soon as possible and, in any case, within 14 days of the day you have given notice of your cancellation. In this case, we will refund the price of the product in full. However, you will be responsible for the cost of returning the item to us.
(b) for any other reason (for instance, because you claim that the product is defective), we will examine the returned product and will notify you of your refund via e-mail within a reasonable period of time. We will usually process the refund due to you as soon as possible and, in any case, within 14 days of the day we confirmed to you via e-mail that you were entitled to a refund for the defective product. Products returned by you because of a defect will be refunded in full, including a refund of the delivery charges for sending the item to you and the cost incurred by you in returning the item to us.
6.2 We will usually refund any money received from you using the same method originally used by you to pay for your purchase unless the original transaction was made more than 6 months previously in which case payment may be made via cheque instead.
6.3 If you are returning any items to us, we would strongly recommend that you obtain a certificate of posting from the post office and also consider insuring your parcel so that you can claim in the event of any loss or damage. We are unable to compensate you for parcels that are damaged or mislaid in transit.
6.4 This policy does not affect your statutory rights and it is the customer’s responsibility to ensure the safe return of any items to us. You can find out more about your right to cancel a contract formed at a distance as set out in the Consumer Protection (Distance Selling) Regulations 2000 from your local consumer advice centre (eg Citizens Advice Bureau).
