2. Use of our Website
3. How We Use Your Personal Information
4. Our Products and Services
4.1 The images of the Products on our Website are for illustrative purposes only. Although we have made every effort to display the colours accurately, we cannot guarantee that your computer's display of the colours accurately reflects the colour of the Products. The Products ordered by you may vary slightly from those images.
4.2 We have made every effort to be as accurate as possible when describing the Products and Services. All sizes, weights, capacities, dimensions and measurements of Products indicated on our Website have been provided by the manufacturers of those Products.
4.3 The packaging of the Products may vary from that shown on the images on our Website.
5. Prices and Delivery Charges
5.1 The prices of the Products and Services will be as quoted on our Website at the time you submit your order. We use our best efforts to ensure that the prices are correct at the time when the relevant information was entered onto the system. In some cases, we may need to obtain further details in order to provide a quote for the price of Services. The price of Services may therefore vary from the prices on the Website depending on your circumstances. Please see clause 5.6 for what happens if we discover an error in the price of the Products or Services that you have ordered.
5.2 Prices for our Products and Services may change from time to time, but changes will not affect any order that you have placed, and that has been accepted by us.
5.3 The price of our Products and Services excludes VAT (where applicable) at the current rate chargeable in the UK for the time being unless stated otherwise. However, if the rate of VAT changes between the date of your order and the date of delivery, we will adjust the VAT you pay, unless you have already paid for the Products and / or Services in full before the change in VAT takes effect.
5.4 The price of our Products does not include delivery charges which will need to be added to your order unless it qualifies for FREE DELIVERY. Our delivery charges are as advised to you during the check-out process, before you confirm your order. For more information on our delivery charges, please refer to our Delivery Policy [below].
5.5 Your rights to a refund on cancellation are set out in clause 12. We will invoice you for the outstanding balance for Services on or any time after we have performed the Services. Each invoice will quote the order number. You must pay each invoice in cleared monies within 30 days of receipt of the invoice.
5.6 We supply a large number of Products and Services. It is always possible that, despite our best efforts, some of the Products and Services on our Website or otherwise may be incorrectly priced. If we discover an error in the price of the Products and / or Services that you have ordered, we will contact you to inform you of this error and we will give you the option of continuing to purchase the Product and / or Services at the correct price or cancelling your order. We will not process your order until we have your instructions. If we are unable to contact you using the contact details you provided during the order process, we will treat the order as cancelled and notify you in writing. Please note that if the pricing error is obvious and unmistakeable and could have reasonably been recognised by you as a mispricing, we do not have to provide the Products and / or Services to you at the incorrect (lower) price.

9. How The Contract Is Formed Between You And Us
9.1 Our shopping pages will guide you through the steps you need to take to place an order with us. Our order process allows you to check and amend any errors before submitting your order to us. Please take the time to read and check your order at each stage of the order process.
9.2 We will acknowledge your order when you place it. This does not mean that your has been accepted. We will contact you to confirm our acceptance of your order (Acceptance Confirmation) which shall include, where you have purchased Products, sending you a tracking code by email when your order is shipped to enable you to check progress of your delivery online. The Contract between you and us will only be formed when you receive the Acceptance Confirmation.
9.3 If we are unable to supply you with a Product and / or Services because that Product and / or those Services are no longer available, we will inform you of this by e-mail and we will not process your order. If you have already paid for the Product and / or Services, we will refund you the full amount including any delivery costs charged as soon as possible.
9.4 In the unlikely event that a Product that you have ordered is out of stock, the estimated delivery time will be longer and you will be contacted by us in order to set a new delivery date and to arrange a new date for performance of the Services if necessary.
10. Delivery of Products
10.1 We will contact you with an estimated delivery date (for more information on when you can expect Products ordered by you to be delivered, please see our Delivery Policy [below]). Occasionally our delivery to you may be affected by an Event Outside Our Control (please see clause 18 for our responsibilities when this happens).
10.2 Delivery of an order shall be completed when we deliver the Products to the address you gave us when placing your order or you or a carrier organised by you collect them from us and the Products will be your responsibility from that time.
10.3 You own the Products once we have received payment in full, including all applicable delivery charges (if any).
This clause 10.4 only applies if you are a consumer
10.4 If we miss the delivery deadline for any Products then you may cancel your order straight away if any of the following apply:
10.4.1 we have refused to deliver the Products;
10.4.2 delivery within the delivery deadline was essential (taking into account all the relevant circumstances); or
10.4.3 you told us before we accepted your order that delivery within the delivery deadline was essential.
10.5 If you do not wish to cancel your order straight away, or do not have the right to do so under clause 10.4, you can give us a new deadline for delivery, which must be reasonable, and you can cancel your order if we do not meet the new deadline.
10.6 If you do choose to cancel your order for late delivery under clause 10.4 or clause 10.5, you can do so for just some of the Products or all of them, unless splitting them up would significantly reduce their value. If the Products have been delivered to you, you will have to return them to us or allow us to collect them, and we will pay the costs of this. After you cancel your order we will refund any sums you have paid to us for the cancelled Products and their delivery in accordance with the relevant provisions of clause 12.8.
10.7 Our free delivery service is available for deliveries to anywhere in the mainland UK and some selected areas of Scotland. Please contact us to find out the precise costs of delivery (if any).
10.8 In some circumstances, your order may be subject to import duties and taxes which are applied when the delivery reaches that destination. Please note that we have no control over these charges and we cannot predict their amount.
10.9 You will be responsible for payment of any such import duties and taxes. Please contact your local customs office for further information before placing your order
10.10 You must comply with all applicable laws and regulations of the country for which the Products are destined. We will not be liable or responsible if you break any such laws or regulations.
11. Performance of Services
11.1 We will supply the Services to you on the date agreed between us in writing. We will not begin to supply any Services before the end of the cancellation period unless you expressly request that we do so in writing and acknowledge that your cancellation rights will be lost once the Services have been fully performed.
11.2 We will make every effort to complete the Services on time. However, there may be delays due to an Event Outside Our Control (please see clause 18 for our responsibilities when this happens).
11.3 We may need certain information from you that is necessary for us to provide the Services. We will contact you about this. If you do not, after being asked by us, provide us with this information, or you provide us with incomplete or incorrect information, we may make an additional reasonable charge to cover any extra work that is required or we may need to suspend the Services. We will not be liable for any delay or non-performance where you have not provided the necessary information to us. We may also have to suspend the Services if we have to deal with technical problems, or to make improvements as agreed between you and us in writing. We will contact you to let you know in advance where this occurs, unless the problem is urgent or an emergency. You do not have to pay for the Services while they are suspended under but this does not affect your obligation to pay for any invoices that we have already sent to you.
11.4 In some circumstances, we may be unable to provide you with the Services that you require and may therefore request that a third party provides those Services to you (Third Party Services). We will let you know where this is the case. By placing an order for Third Party Services, you will be entering in to a direct contractual relationship with the third party providing those Third Party Services. You must unconditionally accept these Terms and Conditions of Supply and the terms and conditions of any third party (in respect of the Third Party Services that they supply to you) if you want to proceed with your order.
12. Your Consumer Right of Return and Refund
This clause 12 only applies if you are a consumer
12.1 If you are a consumer, you have the benefit of a 14 day cooling off period where you have a legal right to cancel a Contract for Products and / or Services under the Consumer Contracts (Information, Cancellation and Additional Charges) Regulations 2013. Garden Benches Direct extends this cooling off period to 30 days in respect of Products that are garden benches only (for the avoidance of doubt, the 30 day cooling off period does not apply to Products that are not garden benches or to any Services).
12.2 This means that during the relevant period set out in clause 12.4, if you change your mind for any reason and you do not want to keep a Product and / or receive Services, you can notify us of your decision to cancel the Contract and receive a refund. Advice about your legal right to cancel the Contract is available from your local Citizens' Advice Bureau or Trading Standards office.
12.3 However, this legal right to cancel does not apply in the case of:
12.3.1 Products made specifically for you or clearly personalised; or
12.3.2 any Products that have been assembled, unpackaged or in any way used; or,
12.3.3 any Products which become mixed inseparably with other items after their delivery.
12.4 Your legal right to cancel a Contract starts from the date of the Acceptance Confirmation (the date on which we contact you to confirm our acceptance of your order), which is when the Contract between us is formed. Your deadline for cancelling the Contract then depends on what you have ordered and how it is delivered, as set out in the table below:
End of the cancellation period
12.4.1 Your Contract is for Products not delivered on separate days:
The end date is the end of:
(a) 14 days after the day on which you receive a Product where the Product that you have purchased is not a garden bench; or
(b) 30 days after the day on which you receive a Product where the Product that you have purchased is a garden bench.
Example: if we provide you with an Acceptance Confirmation on 30 September and you receive the Product on 1 October, you may cancel at any time between 30 September and:
- the end of the day on 15 October where the Product that you have purchased is not a garden bench; or
- the end of the day on 31 October where the Product that you have purchased is a garden bench.
12.4.2 Your Contract is for Products delivered on separate days:
The end date is the end of:
(a) 14 days after the day on which you receive the last of the Products in respect of all Products that are not garden benches; or
(b) 30 days after the day on which you receive a Product where that Product is a garden bench or the end date stipulated in clause 12.4.2(a), whichever is the later.
Example: if we provide you with an Acceptance Confirmation on 30 September and you receive the first of the Products that you have purchased on 1 October and the last of them (being a garden bench) on 15 October, you may cancel at any time between 30 September and:
- the end of the day on 29 October in respect of all Products that are not garden benches; and
- the end of the day on 14 November in respect of the garden bench.
Your Contract is for Services:
The end date is the end of 14 days after the day on which you receive the Acceptance Confirmation.
Example: if we provide you with an Acceptance Confirmation on 1 February whereby we agree to assemble your garden bench, 15 February will be the last day of the cancellation period (subject to clause 12.8.2).
12.5 To cancel a Contract, you just need to let us know that you have decided to cancel. The easiest way to do this is to complete the cancellation form on our Website. A link to the cancellation form is also included in our Acceptance Confirmation. If you use this method we will e-mail you to confirm we have received your cancellation. You can also contact us by e-mail, post or telephone to cancel a Contract. If you send us your cancellation notice by e-mail or by post, then your cancellation is effective from the date you send us the e-mail or post the letter to us. For example, you will have given us notice in time as long as you post your letter in time for it to be taken with the last post on the last day of the cancellation period or e-mail us before midnight on that day.
12.6 Please provide your name, address, telephone, number, the full product details and your order number to help us to identify your order and process your refund.
12.7 If we have to contact you or give you notice in writing, we will do so by e-mail or by pre-paid post to the address you provide to us in your order.
12.8 If you cancel your Contract we will:
12.8.1 refund you the price you paid for the Products. However, please note we are permitted by law to reduce your refund to reflect any reduction in the value of the Products, if this has been caused by your handling them in a way which would not be permitted in a shop;
12.8.2 refund you the price you paid for the Services but only to the extent that they have not been performed. You must pay for the supply of the Services for the period for which they have been supplied up until the time of cancellation. The price for Services supplied shall be determined in proportion to the full value of the Services to be performed under the Contract. We will not begin to supply any Services before the end of the cancellation period unless you expressly request that we do so in writing and acknowledge that your cancellation rights will be lost once the Services have been performed in full;
12.8.3 refund delivery costs (where you have paid for delivery) limited to the least expensive delivery method we offer (provided that this is a common and generally acceptable method). For example, if you place your order on a Friday and we offer delivery of the Product on the following Monday at one cost but you choose to have the Product delivered at the weekend at a higher cost, then we will only refund what you would have paid for the cheaper delivery option; and
12.8.4 make any refunds due to you as soon as possible and in any event within the deadlines indicated below:
(a) if you have received the Product and we have not offered to collect it from you, you will receive your refund within 14 days after the day on which we receive the Product back from you or, if earlier, the day on which you provide us with evidence that you have sent the Product back to us;
(b) if you have not received the Product or you have received it and we have offered to collect it from you, you will receive your refund 14 days after you inform us of your decision to cancel the Contract; and
(c) in respect of any Services that you have prepaid for, you will receive your refund 14 days after you inform us of your decision to cancel the Contract.
12.9 If you have returned the Products because they are faulty or not as described, we will refund the price of the Products in full, together with any applicable delivery charges, and any reasonable costs you incur in returning the Products to us.
12.10 We will refund you on the credit card or debit card used by you to pay. If you used vouchers to pay for the Products and / or Services we may refund you in vouchers.
12.11 If a Product has been delivered to you before you decide to cancel your Contract:
12.11.1 then you must return it to us without undue delay and in any event not later than 14 days after the day on which you let us know that you wish to cancel the Contract in accordance with clause 12.5. You can send it back or return it to [our warehouse] at [Cardinal, Harling Road, Sharston Industrial Estate, Manchester, M22 4UX]. If we have offered to collect the Product from you, we will collect the Product from the address to which it was delivered. We will contact you to arrange a suitable time for collection using the email address or telephone number provided by you when you placed your order; and
12.11.2 you will be responsible for the cost of returning the Product to us unless the Product is faulty or not as described (in this case, see clause 12.9). We charge £50.00 to collect each large Product from you such as a garden bench. We will let you know the precise costs of collection prior to collecting any Products and we will only do so if you agree to pay the costs of collection.
12.12 We are under a legal duty to supply Products and / or Services that are in conformity with a Contract. If you are a consumer, you have legal rights in relation to Products that are faulty or not as described and Services that are not carried out with reasonable skill and care, or if the materials used are faulty or not as described. These legal rights are not affected by your right of return and refund in this clause 12 or anything else in these Terms and Conditions of Supply. Advice about your legal rights is available from your local Citizens' Advice Bureau or Trading Standards office.
13. Manufacturer’s Guarantee and Defective Products
13.1 Some of the Products we sell to you come with a manufacturer's guarantee. For details of the manufacturer’s guarantee and any applicable terms and conditions, please refer to the manufacturer's information provided with each Product.
13.2 If you are a consumer, a manufacturer's guarantee is in addition to, and does not affect, your legal rights in relation to Products that are faulty or not as described. Advice about your legal rights is available from your local Citizens' Advice Bureau or Trading Standards office.
13.3 In the unlikely event that there is a defect with a Product that manifests itself within the period of 6 months starting with the date on which the Products were delivered, you will be expected to give us a reasonable opportunity to repair or fix the defect. We will use every effort to do so as soon as reasonably practicable and you will not have to pay for this.
14. Our Right To Vary These Terms and Conditions of Supply
14.1 We amend these Terms and Conditions of Supply from time to time. Please look at the start of these Terms and Conditions of Supply to see when they were last updated and which terms were changed.
14.2 Every time you order Products and / or Services from us, the Legal Terms in force at the time of your order will apply to the Contract between you and us.
14.3 We may revise these Terms and Conditions of Supply as they apply to your order from time to time to reflect changes in relevant laws and regulatory requirements or for any other reason.
14.4 If we have to revise these Terms and Conditions of Supply as they apply to your order, we will contact you to give you reasonable advance notice of the changes and let you know how to cancel the Contract if you are not happy with the changes. You may cancel either in respect of all the affected Products and / or Services or just the Products and / or Services that you are yet to receive. If you opt to cancel, you will have to return (at our cost) any relevant Products you have already received and we will arrange a full refund of the price you have paid for those Products (subject to clause 12.8.1 and clause 12.11), the Services (subject to clause 12.8.2) and the delivery charges (subject to clause 12.8.3).
15.1 If you experience a problem, you can make a complaint to us by contacting our Customer Support Aftercare Team by using the contact details at clause 1 within the cancellation period as more particularly set out at clause 12, unless the problem manifests itself after expiry of the cancellation period, in which case, a complaint should be made as soon as reasonably practicable.
15.2 We may conduct an investigation in to the matter which will require your full co-operation. A failure to act quickly and comply with the provisions of this clause 15 may result in a complaint not being upheld. This is likely to include photographic evidence in the case of a damaged Product. You agree to provide any form of evidence reasonably requested by us in respect of any complaint or claim.

This clause 16 only applies if you are a business customer
16.1 We only supply the Products for internal use by your business, and you agree not to use the Products for any resale purposes.

16.5 Except as expressly stated in these Terms and Conditions of Supply, we do not give any representation, warranties or undertakings in relation to the Products and / or Services. Any representation, condition or warranty which might be implied or incorporated into these Terms and Conditions of Supply by statute, common law or otherwise is excluded to the fullest extent permitted by law. In particular, we will not be responsible for ensuring that the Products are suitable for your purposes.
17. Liability If You Are A Consumer
This clause 17 only applies if you are a consumer
17.1 If we fail to comply with these Terms and Conditions of Supply, we are responsible for loss or damage you suffer that is a foreseeable result of our breach of these Terms and Conditions of Supply or our negligence, but we are not responsible for any loss or damage that is not foreseeable. Loss or damage is foreseeable if it is an obvious consequence of our breach or if it was contemplated by you and us at the time we entered into a Contract.
17.2 We only supply the Products for domestic and private use. You agree not to use the Products for any commercial, business or resale purposes, and we have no liability to you for any loss of profit, loss of business, business interruption, or loss of business opportunity.

17.3.4 defective Products under the Consumer Protection Act 1987.
18. Events Outside Our Control

20.4 Each of the paragraphs of these Terms and Conditions of Supply operates separately. If any court or relevant authority decides that any of them are unlawful or unenforceable, the remaining paragraphs will remain in full force and effect.
20.5 If we fail to insist that you perform any of your obligations under these Terms and Conditions of Supply, or if we do not enforce our rights against you, or if we delay in doing so, that will not mean that we have waived our rights against you and it will not mean that you do not have to comply with those obligations. If we do waive any default by you, we will only do so in writing, and that will not mean that we will automatically waive any later default by you.
20.6 These Terms and Conditions of Supply are governed by English law. This means a Contract and any dispute or claim arising out of or in connection with it or its subject matter or formation (including non-contractual disputes or claims) shall be governed by, and construed in accordance with the laws of England and Wales.
