10. MAKING AN ORDER
10.1. Follow the onscreen instructions on the Webstore to make an order.
10.2. Items which you select for purchase will automatically be placed in your shopping basket (“record bag”). To remove an item from your shopping basket, simply click on the “remove” (or similar) button next to the item as it appears in your basket.
10.3. Once you have pressed the “checkout” or similar button you will be asked to provide certain information to allow us or a service provider engaged by us to process your order (including your selected payment method and card details).
10.4. You will receive an order summary confirmation on screen and/or by email (provided that you have provided us with a valid email address) acknowledging that we have received your order – this doesn’t mean that your order has been accepted. Your order represents an offer to us to purchase a particular item which is accepted by us only when we send you an email (“Dispatch Confirmation”) confirming that particular Product has been dispatched.
10.5. All orders are subject to acceptance & availability. All titles listed on our site are either in stock in the shop or, to the best of our knowledge, are available from one of our suppliers.
(a) If we need to order the title in from our supplier, this may add additional days to the order process which are dependent on the individual supplier’s turnaround time. If something you’ve ordered is out of stock or otherwise delayed, we will notify you as soon as we have further information. You may then amend your order if you choose or wait until all items are available for us to dispatch.
(b) If we discover that any of the titles you have ordered are in fact deleted or otherwise unavailable, we will email you as quickly as possible & credit you for the relevant title. Any other titles in your order will be sent & charged as normal.
10.5. Pre-orders: We do not allow you to mix pre-orders with standard back catalogue stock and each pre-order item will be treated as a separate order. However, if the webstore has previously allowed (or now erroneously allows) you to mix pre-orders together which have different release dates, the webstore will consider them as one order and calculate postage accordingly. If that is the case, we will hold your order until all titles are available to send out.
10.6. We may reject your order for any reason prior to acceptance. If we reject your order after payment has already been taken, we will provide you with a refund in accordance with our refund policy set out in Section 13.
11.1. We can accept payment by Credit & Debit Cards (Visa, Visa Debit, Visa Delta, Visa Electron, Visa Connect, Mastercard, Maestro and American Express); Record Tokens (issued by Book Tokens Limited) & BACS transfer for payment. Prices appear on the Webstore and are inclusive of VAT unless otherwise stated. We may change the prices for Products and Services at any time by posting new prices in the Webstore.
11.2. By paying using your credit or debit card you confirm that the card is yours and that there are sufficient funds or credit available to cover the charges.
11.3. Prices may exclude delivery charges, which may be added to the total amount and will be calculated and displayed on screen prior to your payment details being taken.
11.4. It is always possible that, despite our best efforts, some of the items listed on our Webstore may be incorrectly priced. We will usually verify prices as part of our dispatch procedure so that, where a Product or Service’s correct price is less than our stated price, we will charge the lower amount. If a Product or Service’s correct price is higher than the price stated on our Webstore, we will usually, at our discretion, either contact you for instructions or reject your order and notify you of such rejection. We are under no obligation to provide the Product or Service to you at an 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.
11.5. Billing to your credit or debit card and / or Record Tokens will take place at the time of your purchase.
11.6. Rock Box Records Limited may use a third party service provider to process payments, but will ensure that any payment processor engaged by Rock Box Records Limited will use security to encrypt credit or debit card data.
12. CANCELLATION, DELIVERY AND USAGE RULES
(a) You may cancel your purchase of physical products at any time within 14 days for any reason, beginning on the day after you receive the Product(s). In this case, you will receive a full refund of the price paid for the Product(s) in accordance with our refunds policy set out in Section 13 below. For clarity, where your order was for Products of a “hybrid” nature (e.g. a physical product and digital content) and we have begun the process of delivering your digital content order or you have already accessed your digital content, we will process a partial refund proportionate to the relevant physical element of the order in accordance with our cancellation policy as set out in this Section 12.1. Where you order multiple items that are delivered in separate batches, your 14 day cancellation period does not begin until the day after the last item has been received by you.
(b) To cancel, you must inform us clearly. We recommend the best way to do this is by emailing email@example.com. Please return the Product to us immediately in the same condition you received it (at your own cost and risk). You have a legal obligation to take care of the Product while it is in your possession. If you fail to do so, we may have a claim against you for compensation. You may, but are not obliged to, use the form of cancellation attached as a Schedule to these Supply Terms to notify us of your cancellation.
(c) Details of our refunds policy can also be found at Section 13.
(d) This right to cancel does not apply:
i. where vinyl records, CDs and/or DVDs (or other such audio or audio-visual Products) have been unsealed;
ii. where the Product has been made to your specification;
iii. to digital content which has been downloaded or streamed (see Section 12.1 above); or
iv. where the Product, by reason of its nature, cannot be returned.
(e)Your statutory rights are unaffected by Section 12.1 (d) above.
We will aim to deliver the goods by the date quoted for delivery but delivery times are not guaranteed. If delivery is delayed due to any cause beyond our reasonable control, the delivery date will be extended by a reasonable period & we will contact you to arrange an alternative time.
12.3. Risk and Title
Products purchased will be your responsibility either from the time of delivery to the address you gave us or the time of collection from us. You own the Products only once we receive payment in full for the Products, including delivery charges.
13. RETURNS & REFUNDS POLICY
13.1. If you cancel your purchase of Products within the 14-day cooling-off period detailed in Section 12.1 above, we will process the refund due to you as soon as possible and, in any event, within 14 days of the day we receive the returned Product or, if earlier, within 14 days of you providing evidence of having sent back the Product. In this case, we will refund the price of the product in full (excluding postage), provided that you have taken reasonable care of it. If audio, video or software Products provided to you in a separate sealed packet are opened, you may not be entitled to a refund. You will be responsible for the cost of returning the item to us.
13.2. If you seek to cancel your purchase because you claim that the Product is defective or that there has been damage or error on our part, we will examine the returned Product and will notify you of your refund or otherwise via email within a reasonable period of time.
13.3. In the event that we have to cancel your order after payment has been taken, we will notify you of our need to cancel your order and supply you with a refund as soon as possible.
13.4. Products returned by you because of a defect will be refunded in full, including a refund of the delivery charges for sending the item to you and the cost incurred by you in returning the item to us.
13.5. We reserve the right to not process returns sent to us without prior permission or returned damaged.
13.6 When returning items to us, you will need to take reasonable care to ensure they are not damaged in transit & that they are labelled clearly with the correct address & reference number (as provided by us): Rock Box Records Limited, Website Returns, 34 Obelisk Way, Camberley, Surrey, GU15 3SG.
13.7. We will always make any refund using the same method originally used by you to pay for your purchase. Where Record Token(s) were used as full or part payment, the refund will be made first to Record Tokens. Should you no longer have the Record Token you used to pay for some or all of your order, we will refund to a new virtual card and send you the card number and PIN to the email address on your order. We will not send a physical card.
14. CANCELLATION BY US
