Terms and Conditions
These terms and conditions govern Encyclopædia Britannica (UK) Ltd's (EBUK) performance relating to the sale and supply of goods to the customer. EBUK reserve the right to amend these terms and conditions from time to time by updating this text page; and the customer is bound by any such modifications or revisions
2. Contract with customer
The contract between EBUK and the customer comes into existence upon EBUK's acceptance of the customers order i.e. when payment has been received. EBUK is entitled to withdraw from contracts in the case of obvious typographical or arithmetical inaccuracies appearing on EBUK's Web site.
3. Pricing and Availability
The prices of the goods are those specified on EBUK's Web site. The price, as displayed, is inclusive of VAT (at the standard UK rate). There will be an additional charge for delivery. Orders are subject to availability. In the unlikely event that the goods are unavailable, the customer will be notified by email. Price and availability information is subject to change without notice.
4. Delivery of Goods
EBUK will deliver goods ordered to the delivery address supplied by the customer except for credit/debit orders over £100, EBUK will only deliver to the cardholder/billling address and not an alternate delivery address. Availability permitting, all orders paid for by credit/debit card and with the delivery address in the U.K. will be delivered within 7 to 10 days, other delivery destinations may take longer. Orders paid for by cheque require 10 days for clearance and are then despatched in the same way. EBUK is entitled to deliver in part. Despatch of goods constitutes fulfilment of contract.
5. EBUK's Warranty
If the goods delivered are not what the customer ordered, or are of incorrect quantity, or are damaged or defective, EBUK will, if the customer returns them within a reasonable period, at the customer's option either give a full refund or where possible make good any shortage or non-delivery or replace any damaged or defective goods.
6. Return of goods
If for any reason the customer is unhappy with their purchase, they can return it to EBUK for an exchange or refund, providing EBUK receives it within 30 days from the order date. Returned products must be received by EBUK in good condition and all component parts, including any promotional gift that may have been included in your purchase. A note explaining the reason for return should also be enclosed. This does not affect your statutory rights. The customer bears the cost of returning goods for refund or exchange, except in cases of faulty, damaged or wrongly supplied goods. (EBUK requests that you use registered post or recorded delivery when returning goods and that proof of postage is retained).
7. Governing Law and Jurisdiction
Contracts between EBUK and the customer will be governed by English Law and all disputes will be submitted to the non-exclusive jurisdiction of the English courts.
