Terms and conditions of use

WE HATE ALL THE MUMBO JUMBO OF TERMS TOO, BUT SOMEONE SAID WE HAD TO, SO HERE GOES ...

1. These conditions shall apply to all sales transactions between AmicaSoap UK and any person placing an order with us for the supply of any goods.

1a. Your purchase from us indicates your willingness to abide by and accept the following rules.

2. PRICE

2a.   All prices quoted on this website are accurate at the time of publication and are quoted in pounds sterling.

2b.   The price includes delivery to mainland UK and does not include the delivery to outwith the UK.

2c.   For international delivery charges, a quotation based on your country will be provided at the checkout area but this is merely a quotation based on prices and weights available to us at that time by Royal Mail and/or other third party couriers. If we under-charge for international delivery, we reserve the right to amend the delivery charge.

3. SECURE ONLINE PAYMENT

3a.   All our payments are handled through PayPal and Stripe which are world recognised secure payment merchants.

4. DELIVERY

4a.   We accept orders and delivery to UK and international residential or business addresses.

4b.   We discourage the use of third party parcel drop or parcel proxy addresses or where a third party becomes involved in the acceptance and redistribution of your order, and as such we will not be responsible for any lost or delayed orders if addressed to such services.   If you have not received an order placed with us after 10 working days of the expected delivery date, you would be required to correspond with the third party service as we would have received confirmation of delivery from our end by this time.

4c.   We make every effort to dispatch orders within 24 hours of receiving your payment. The exception to this would be for items we have to make on special order, or for items that have unexpectedly went out of stock.   Normally our maximum turnaround for dispatch is 2-3 working days and once dispatched our mail is normally delivered within 2-3 working days, although Royal Mail can take longer than this and we advise allowing upto 10 working days after the expected delivery date to receive your order.

4d.   Occasionally, when weather conditions are severe or bank holidays are imminent, deliveries can take a little longer. Deliveries outside UK Mainland will normally be between 7-10 working days, depending upon the destination, but we ask you allow up to 20 working days for international orders.

4e.   Royal Mail, or any other courier we assign to deliver your order, will attempt delivery and if the recipient is not at home a card will be left with written instructions asking them to contact their local depot to re-arrange delivery or to collect. It is then the recipient's responsibility to contact the courier and re-arrange delivery or collection. It is the Purchasers responsibility to ensure that a recipient or representative is present to sign for the delivery.    If the delivery is returned to us, we will charge a postage fee to resend the order, and if this isn't agreeable we will cancel the order and refund your payment LESS the cost of postage it took to send your order.

5. YOUR RIGHT TO CANCEL

5a.   You have a right to cancel your entire order in writing within seven days of receipt and receive a refund of all charges. You will then need to return the item(s) to us by post. Orders which are returned to us are returned at your own cost and we would advise that you use a tracking service for the return as we cannot accept liability should we not receive your order.

6. OUR RETURNS POLICY

6a.   If you change your mind you may return your order to us within 14 days of receipt, and all items must be unopened and unused.   We will be happy to offer you an exchange or a refund provided that the products are returned complete, in perfect condition, unused, unopened and with the original packaging.   Return of an item is at your own cost unless the item is faulty.   If you wish to return an order/item for exchange, we reserve the right to apply a postal charge to cover our additional expense.

6b.   Any item which has been returned and opened will not be eligible for a refund or exchange due to health, safety and hygiene reasons.

7. DAMAGED OR FAULTY GOODS

7a.   If the Goods are damaged or found to be faulty, the Purchaser should contact us via this website within three days of receipt of Goods with clear details of the damage or issue.   If we accept the damaged goods, we can send you a return envelope or you are free to post the damaged goods back at your own cost to which we will refund once received.   Damaged goods can be exchanged or we can offer a full credit or refund.

8. PRODUCT VARIATIONS

8a.   As with all handmade products, colour and texture variations occur occasionally, and naturally as part of the handmade manufacturing process and nature of the raw ingredients we use.

9. COMPLAINTS AND CUSTOMER SERVICE

9a.   The Purchaser should inform us immediately of any problems using the contact us form on this website. Complaints are taken very seriously and will be looked at and responded to within 2 working days.
