ANTIQUE SILVER TERMS & CONDITIONS
Terms of Business
If you buy any goods from this website, the purchase is governed by UK law, as are these terms. The seller of the goods is Bryan Douglas, a registered UK business whose main office is at 12 &14 London Silver Vaults, Chancery House, Chancery Lane, London WC2A 1QS. We are a privately owned family business that has been trading since 1992. These terms and conditions do not affect your consumer statutory rights.
Bryan Douglas warrants that all goods promoted for sale on this website are of satisfactory quality and meet any description stated for them on this website. All prices quoted are in UK Pounds sterling.
We accept PayPal, most major credit & debit cards, cheques, and bank transfers. We do not store or record any credit / debit card details. Goods will not be posted if the order is not paid in full including postage and packaging charges. All prices displayed are quoted in UK Pounds Sterling, and must be paid in full, together with any applicable delivery charges.
We give you the right to cancel your order without giving a reason as required by the Distance Selling Regulations.
The cancellation period begins on the day after the day on which you receive the goods and ends on the expiry of 14
working days. This is described as the cooling off period. You may be charged for the cost of returning the goods
to us if you cannot present them in person. But all other monies are refunded including the initial cost of shipping
the goods to you. Where you exercise your right to cancel, we will refund your money within 30 days of the
cancellation date. This section has been introduced to incorporate the new European Directive on distance selling
which is incorporated into UK law by the CONSUMER CONTRACTS (INFORMATION, CANCELLATION AND ADDITIONAL CHARGES) REGULATIONS 2015.
Further information on this can be found here.
Delivery Prices & Timescale
The cost of delivery for all on-line purchases is included within the price of every item that you see on our website. You should expect delivery of your order within 30 days from the date of your invoice unless we have agreed a longer time with you. If we cannot deliver the goods within this time you will be told immediately and we will arrange another delivery date/time. If we cannot agree on another date/time, then we will offer either a full refund or store credit, whichever is easier for you.
The currency converter that is used on our website uses average exchange rates from various on-line sources such as Reuters. Please be aware that the rates used by your bank or credit card issuing company may vary. So the currency conversions shown are for information purposes and should be used as a guide only. Therefore we are NOT offering to enter into any transaction based on a displayed foreign currency conversion. Please contact your bank or credit/debit card-issuer directly if you want to know exactly what exchange rate will be used.
Returns (please contact us first)
Bryan Douglas always ensures that customers are satisfied with their purchases and service. Any goods that are bought from
the website that are damaged in transit can be returned to Bryan Douglas, unused, with receipt, for a full refund. If for
any other reason you are not entirely satisfied with your goods then please contact us as soon as possible, before
you return them, with the original receipt. Depending on the circumstances we will endeavor to provide you with either
a full refund or a replacement piece of similar quality and price. Our policy is designed to reflect the CONSUMER CONTRACTS
(INFORMATION, CANCELLATION AND ADDITIONAL CHARGES) REGULATIONS 2015, which establishes that consumers are allowed a reasonable
opportunity to establish that the goods are in conformity with the contract. This means that in certain circumstances the
packaging will have been opened, and possibly even discarded. Where it is reasonable for a consumer to have taken such action,
the goods will not be returned in an "unused" condition.
We have an effective system for handling complaints. Our complaints procedure is easy to use and confidential. Once you make a complaint we do the following:
- Acknowledge your complaint within 5 working days
- Advise you how long it will take to resolve the complaint (we endeavor to resolve all complaints within five working days)
- Keep you informed throughout the process
