you are legally capable of entering into binding contracts;

Description of products and availability.

The advertising of James Galt branded products ("product", "products" or "goods") on this website is an "invitation to treat" and a contract between us and you will only be created in accordance with the terms as described in Placing an Order and Acceptance of your Order ("contract").

James Galt has taken every care in the preparation of the content of this website, in particular to ensure that as far as reasonably possible, prices quoted are correct at the time of publishing and that all products have been fairly described.

Placing an Order

When placing an order you are requested to read and agree to these terms and conditions. Any orders placed by you are subject to these terms and conditions. If you are unsure about any of the content of our terms and conditions please contact Customer Services before you place an order.

Acceptance of your Order

After placing your order an order acknowledgement page will be displayed detailing the product(s) you have ordered and confirming prices. If this order acknowledgement page is not displayed please contact Customer Services.

The order acknowledgement is not an acceptance of your order. Acceptance of your order and formation of the contract will only take place once we have confirmed your credit or debit card authorisation for your order, and the products you have ordered have been despatched (unless we have notified you that we do not accept your order or you have cancelled it in accordance with the terms as described in Cancellations). We will send you a despatch confirmation email when the product you have ordered is despatched from our warehouse.

We reserve the right to decline any order you place and/or to supply any product ordered as a result of the product you ordered being unavailable from stock, our inability to obtain authorisation for your payment, or if you do not meet our eligibility criteria. The contract between you and us will be concluded in English. The details of your specific contract will not be filed by us.

Delivery

The products ordered by you will be at your risk from the time of delivery, and ownership of them will only pass to you when we receive full payment of all sums due in respect of them, including delivery charges if applicable.

Cancellations

If you are contracting as a consumer, you may cancel a contract at any time within seven working days, beginning on the day after you received the products.  In this case, you will receive a full refund of the price paid for the products as well as the delivery charge. 

In addition to the cancellation right set out above, if you are unhappy with your purchase we will refund a product within 14 days of receipt, provided it is returned to us in a fully re-saleable condition. If we find that the product has not been returned to us in a fully re-saleable condition we reserve the right to refuse a refund for the product, or deduct up to 20% of the original selling price from the refund amount.

To cancel an order, please contact Customer Services. If you wish to exercise your right to cancel your order after the products you ordered have been despatched, please follow the procedure set out in Returns Procedure (below).
You have a legal obligation to take reasonable care of the products while they are in your possession. If you fail to comply with this obligation, we may have a right of action against you for compensation.

Returns Policy

This returns policy is specific to online purchases only.
We will only normally refund the delivery charge for sending the product to you if:

  • the product is damaged, faulty, or does not match your order; or
  • if you exercise your right to cancel your order within 7 working days (See Cancellations, above)

Please note this only applies to cancellation of the complete order; a return of part of your order will not result in the delivery charge  being refunded. We will also pay for the cost of returning the product to us when the original order was delivered to a UK address (excluding Channel Islands).

Where products were delivered to addresses outside of the UK and to the Channel Islands, the cost of returning the product to us is the responsibility of the original recipient of the order. In the case of unwanted goods being returned, we will not refund any duties or taxes that were imposed when the order was despatched to the recipient.

Products should be returned in their original packaging. If you do not have this packaging, please contact Customer Services.

No waiver by us of any of these terms and conditions shall be effective unless it is expressly stated to be a waiver and is communicated to you in writing in accordance with Notices above.

Severability

If any of these terms and conditions or any provisions of a contract are determined by any competent authority to be invalid, unlawful or unenforceable to any extent, such term, condition or provision will to that extent be severed from the remaining terms, conditions and provisions which will continue to be valid to the fullest extent permitted by law.

Entire agreement

These terms and conditions and any document expressly referred to in them constitute the whole agreement between us and supersede any previous arrangement, understanding or agreement between us, relating to the subject matter of any contract between us.

We each acknowledge that, in entering into a contract, (and the documents referred to in it), neither of us relies on any statement, representation, assurance or warranty (Representation) of any person (whether a party to that contract or not) other than as expressly set out in these terms and conditions.

Each of us agrees that the only rights and remedies available to us arising out of or in connection with a Representation shall be for breach of contract as provided in these terms and conditions.

Nothing in this clause shall limit or exclude any liability for fraud.

Our right to vary these terms and conditions
