Description of Products and Availability
The advertising of Babyblack 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.
Babyblack 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. All prices are displayed inclusive of UK VAT but exclusive of delivery charges. For goods delivered to addresses outside of the UK any duties or tax are the responsibility of the recipient, and are not included in the prices displayed on the website. Our website contains a large number of products and it is always possible, despite our best efforts, that some of the products listed may be incorrectly priced. We will verify prices in any Order acknowledgement email sent to you. We have made every effort to display as accurately as possible the colours of our products that appear on the website. However, as the actual colours you see will depend on your monitor, we cannot guarantee that your monitor’s display of any colour will accurately reflect the colour of the product on delivery. All products are subject to availability. We will inform you as soon as reasonably possible if any products you have ordered are not available.
Placing an Order
When placing an Order you are requested to read and agree to these Terms and Conditions. Any Order(s) placed by you must be placed in accordance with 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 receipt of your Order we will send you an Order acknowledgement email detailing the product(s) you have ordered and confirming prices. If you do not receive this Order acknowledgement email within 3 working days of placing your Order please contact customer services. The Order acknowledgement email 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 dispatched (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(s) you have ordered is dispatched 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 the eligibility criteria set out in Access to and use of the website. The contract between you and us will be concluded in English. The details of your specific contract will not be filed by us.
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.
Due to circumstances beyond our control prices may have to be altered, including any variations in the rate of sales tax. If this occurs, you will be notified and requested to reconfirm your Order at the altered price.
Babyblack is under no obligation to accept or fulfil an Order that we believe violates the terms of any offers, or for products incorrectly priced on the website. We therefore reserve the right to cancel an Order even after it has been accepted. If you Order a product that is priced incorrectly or mistakenly included within a special offer, we will contact you immediately to inform you that your Order has been cancelled.
Please note; if we accidentally ship your Order before we notify you of mistakenly including items or priced incorrectly, 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.
If you would like to ask us any further questions, please contact customer services firstname.lastname@example.org.
