This is a summary of your key legal rights. These are subject to certain exceptions. For detailed information please visit the Citizens Advice website www.adviceguide.org.uk or call 03454 04 05 06.
If your product is goods, for example watches, the Consumer Rights Act 2015 says goods must be as described, fit for purpose and of satisfactory quality. During the expected lifespan of your product your legal rights entitle you to the following:
a) Up to 30 days: if your goods are faulty, then you can get an immediate refund.
b) Up to six months: if your goods can’t be repaired or replaced, then you’re entitled to a full refund, in most cases.
c) Up to six years: if your goods do not last a reasonable length of time you may be entitled to some money back.
12 Title And Risk
12.1 The Goods will be your responsibility from the time of delivery.
12.2 Ownership of the Goods will only pass to you when we receive payment in full of all sums due for the Goods, including delivery charges.
13 Price and Payment
13.1 The price of the Goods will be as set out in order pages of our website when you placed your order. Prices are liable to change at any time, but price changes will not affect Orders that we have already confirmed in writing.
13.2 The price of the Goods includes VAT. However, if the rate of VAT changes between the date of the Order and the date of delivery, we will adjust the VAT you pay, unless you have already paid for the Goods in full before the change in the rate of VAT takes effect.
13.3 The prices exclude delivery costs, which will be added to the total amount due.
13.4 It is always possible that, despite our best efforts, some of the Goods we sell may be incorrectly priced. We will normally check prices as part of our dispatch procedures so that, where the Goods’ correct price is less than our stated price, we will charge the lower amount when dispatching the Goods to you. If the Goods’ correct price is higher than our stated price, we will normally, at our discretion, either contact you for instructions before dispatching the Goods, or reject the Order and tell you. If the pricing error is obvious and unmistakeable and could have reasonably been recognised by you as a mis-pricing, we do not have to provide the Goods to you at the incorrect (lower) price.
13.5 Payment for all Goods must be made in advance by credit or debit card. We accept all major credit and debit cards. Payment must have been received and have cleared before Goods will be shipped. Therefore, we will charge your debit or credit card before we dispatch your order.
13.6 If you do not make any payment to us by the due date we may charge interest to you on the overdue amount at the rate of 4% a year above the base lending rate of the Bank of England from time to time. This interest shall accrue on a daily basis from the due date until the date of actual payment of the overdue amount, whether before or after judgment. You must pay us interest together with any overdue amount.
13.7 Without limiting any other remedies or rights that we may have, if you do not pay us on time, we may cancel or suspend the supply of any other Goods until you have paid the outstanding amounts.

14.1 We are responsible to you for foreseeable loss and damage caused by us. If we fail to comply with these terms, we are responsible for loss or damage you suffer that is a foreseeable result of our breaking this contract or our failing to use reasonable care and skill, but we are not responsible for any loss or damage that is not foreseeable. Loss or damage is foreseeable if either it is obvious that it will happen or if, at the time the contract was made, both we and you knew it might happen, for example, if you discussed it with us during the sales process.
14.2 We do not exclude or limit in any way our liability to you where it would be unlawful to do so. This includes liability for death or personal injury caused by our negligence or the negligence of our employees, agents or subcontractors; for fraud or fraudulent misrepresentation; for breach of your legal rights in relation to the Goods; and for defective Goods under the Consumer Protection Act 1987.
