Please read these terms carefully before ordering any Products from our site. By ordering any of our Products, you agree to be bound by these terms. If you refuse to accept these terms then you will not be able to order any Products from our site.
1. Information about us
www.demellierlondon.com is a website operated by DeMellier London Ltd (“we” or “us”). We are registered in England and Wales under company number 07164165 and with our registered office at Broadway Studios - Studio 2.3, 20 Hammersmith Broadway, W6 7AF London, United Kingdom.. Our VAT number is 988181369.
2. Your status
By placing an order through our site you warrant that you are legally capable of entering into binding contracts and that you are at least 18 years old.
3. How the contract is formed between you and us
After placing an order you will receive an e-mail from us acknowledging that we have received your order. Please note that this does not mean that your order has been accepted. Your order constitutes an offer to us to buy a Product. All orders are subject to acceptance by us and, if we accept your offer, we will confirm such acceptance to you by sending you an e-mail that confirms that the Product has been dispatched (“the Dispatch Confirmation”). The contract between us (“Contract”) will only be formed when we send you the Dispatch Confirmation, and will be deemed to incorporate these terms.
The Contract will relate only to those Products whose dispatch we have confirmed in the Dispatch Confirmation. We will not be obliged to supply any other Products which may have been part of your order unless and until the dispatch of such Products has been confirmed in a Dispatch Confirmation.
4. Right to cancel
You may cancel a Contract at any time within fourteen days beginning on the day after you received the Product. In this case, you will receive a full refund of the price paid for the Product in accordance with clause 8.
To cancel a Contract, you must email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. You must return the Product(s) to us within fourteen days, in the same condition in which you received them, and in accordance with our Returns Policy (Returns and Repairs >). You have a legal obligation to take reasonable care of the Products while they are in your possession.
Please note that your order can only be cancelled before being shipped from our warehouse. If the warehouse has already processed or shipped your item we are unable to cancel it but you have 28 days to return the order back to us and upon receipt we will issue a full refund.
You will not have any right to cancel a Contract for the supply of any Products made to your specifications or clearly personalised or which by reason of their nature cannot be returned.
This provision does not affect your statutory rights.
5. Availability and delivery
We offer goods for sale that are in stock and available for dispatch. Occasionally, however, we may be waiting for stock. Consequently you may from time to time be given the possibility of pre-ordering certain Products. The delivery timing will be featured on the site and payment will be completed when placing the order. This will ensure that you receive the Product in priority once the stock has been received by us. Your rights regarding such Products are the same as those for any other Product purchased on our site. In the unlikely event that the Products that you have ordered and paid for are unavailable then you will be offered a full refund.
Please note that Products are not reserved for you while they are in your shopping basket.
Delivery takes place when we or our delivery agent leaves the Products at the address that you specified for delivery when you placed the order. We will normally ask for a signature from someone at that delivery address.
Unless there are exceptional circumstances your order will be fulfilled by the delivery date set out in the Dispatch Confirmation.
6. Risk and title
Title in the Products will pass to you on the later of:
(a) the date on which we receive payment in full for such Products; and
(b) the date and time of collection of such Products for delivery to your nominated address
Once a Product has been received by you all risk of damage to, or loss of, the Product shall pass to you. In the event that you elect to collect the Product by a third party on your behalf DeMellier all risk of damage to, or loss of the Product shall pass to you upon the collection of such Product.
In the event that a Product is subsequently imported into a country/region other than the country/region to which DeMellier delivered the Product or of the store from which you collected the Product, you shall be responsible for complying with all local import requirements, laws, regulations and rules and paying all import taxes and duties as may be applicable in respect thereof.

For orders shipping within the US, sales tax will be charged at checkout on orders shipping to the following states: California, Connecticut, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, Texas, Virginia and Washington.
International pricing is calculated according to the current rate of exchange between the UK currency on our website and the local currency of the specified shipping destination. We reserve the right to update such exchange rates regularly at our sole discretion, and you acknowledge that such updates may affect product pricing on the Website.
Prices are liable to change at any time, but changes will not affect orders in respect of which we have already sent you a Dispatch Confirmation.
Our site contains a large number of Products and it is always possible that, despite our best efforts, some of the Products listed on our site may be incorrectly priced. We will normally verify prices as part of our dispatch procedures so that, where a Product's correct price is less than our stated price, we will charge the lower amount when dispatching the Product to you. If a Product's correct price is higher than the price stated on our site, we will normally, at our discretion, either contact you for instructions before dispatching the Product, or reject your order and notify you of such rejection.
We are under no obligation to provide the Product to you at the incorrect (lower) price, even after we have sent you a Dispatch Confirmation, if the pricing error is obvious and could have reasonably been recognised by you as a mis-pricing.
Payment for all Products must be by credit, debit card or through PayPal. We accept payment by Visa, Visa Debit, Visa Electron, American Express and MasterCard as well as ApplePay and GPay.

Please note that in the unlikely event a piece of hardware should break after 12 months we will replace the piece of hardware provided we still have that piece of hardware in stock, as we are unable to order additional hardware units once a style has been discontinued. Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with any repair queries.
