Terms & Conditions

By using this site and placing orders herein, you are agreeing to the following terms and conditions and that you are authorised to place an order.

1.      Ordering and Availability

1.1 All items offered on our website are subject to availability and price change. If an item ordered is out of stock we will notify you within seven working days of your order being placed. We keep stock of our common items, but due to the specialist nature of our products some are built to order which may take up to 6 weeks. We will advise you within seven days of placing an order what the anticipated delivery date will be. You have a right to cancel if the delivery time-frame will exceed 6 weeks.

1.2 Orders for any of our products can be placed via our Secure Online Server or by post or telephone, at which time an Invoice or Quotation will be raised. Credit card payments are accepted via our secure server only. Payments are also accepted by cheque or BACS transfer. Cheques should be made out to Acrone Ltd. We will advise you of our bank details if you wish to use BACS.

1.3 Acceptance of your offer to purchase shall only be deemed to be complete when we have sent a confirmation email of the despatch of the goods to the postal address that you have provided (whether or not you receive that email), or by the goods having been despatched. We reserve the right to refuse or reject any offer to purchase at any time - if an offer is refused, we will refund your payment in full.

1.4 Our products are priced in Pound sterling. Overseas payments may be made at the exchange rate quoted at time of invoice, and all currency conversion charges are paid by the purchaser.

1.5 We aim to process and despatch all orders as quickly as possible. If your order will take longer than we  informed you at time of order we will advise you so that you have the opportunity to cancel.

1.6 All orders are checked by us for the security of both you and us. We (or our payment provider) may request proof of address and/or proof of identification from you before your order can be processed. If this is the case we will contact you giving you full details of what is required.

1.7 All internet orders must be accompanied by active credit or debit card information. This information is handled and authorised by our third party payment provider and we cannot be held responsible for any misuse of your details originating at the payment provider. You should satisfy yourself to the payment provider's Terms and Conditions before placing your order.

2. Payment and Ownership of Goods

2.1 We accept payment by all cards accepted by our payment provider. Your card will be debited upon placing the order. Should you return your goods for a refund your card will be refunded in accordance with the terms and timescale of the payment provider. In these Terms and Conditions of Business:- "Goods" means goods or products offered for sale by us. Your payment is accepted as a deposit under your offer of purchase and is therefore not to be considered a sale until your offer has been formally accepted by email from us or on despatch of your order by us.

2.2 Goods supplied by us remain our property until the offer to purchase has been accepted and the deposit converted to a payment for such goods. If payment is declined by your cardholder, or your cheque is not honoured by your bank, whether before or after despatch of the goods to you, we will treat the order as cancelled.

If the goods have been despatched we may:-
a) Require you to return the goods and the promotional products to us in good condition within 7 days; or
b) Require you to pay in full by satisfactory alternative means within 7 days.

3. Website Accuracy

3.1. Our Website designers work extremely hard to ensure our website is as accurate as possible and in order to achieve this our website is updated regularly.

3.2 Whilst we endeavour to be as accurate as possible with the information on our site, some inaccuracies may be present.  If inaccuracies are noted during ordering, we will inform you immediately, correct the detail and give you an opportunity to change or cancel your order.

3.3. Pictures of products are as a representation only and should be used only as a guide. We will advise you of any specification change at time of order.

4.2 All orders placed before 12AM will be despatched the same day. All orders placed after 12AM will be despatched on the next working day unless we have advised you about our anticipated delivery date.

4.3  Time for delivery is given as accurately as possible but is not guaranteed. The customer shall have no right to damages or to cancel the contract for failure for any cause to meet any delivery or completion time stated nor shall the customer be entitled to make, or to purport to make, time for delivery of the essence of the contract.

4.4 The date for delivery shall in every case be dependent upon prompt receipt of all necessary information, final instructions or approvals from the customer.

4.5 Failure by the customer to take delivery of or to make payment in respect of any one or more instalments of goods delivered in accordance with the contract shall entitle the Seller to treat the contract as repudiated by the customer either in whole or in part.

4.6 The Seller will endeavour to comply with reasonable requests by the customer for postponement of delivery of the goods or completion of the services but will be under no obligation to do so. Where delivery or completion is postponed, otherwise than due to default by the Seller then, without prejudice to all other rights and remedies available to the Seller, the customer shall pay all costs and expenses, including a reasonable charge for storage and transportation so caused.

4.7 The Customer shall notify any delivery shortfall or damage to the Seller, within 2 working days. Delivery issues raised after the Customer has signed for the goods shall be accepted only at the discretion of the Seller. The Customer may be required by the Seller to provide photographic or sample evidence of any damage claimed.

A charge (as above) will be made for any goods that are returned back in an un-saleable or incomplete condition. This will be deducted from your refund if applicable or charged against your debit or credit card details as provided at the time of ordering.
Refunds are processed through our payment provider and the time it takes for transfer of funds is subject to their terms and conditions.
