Acceptance of your order will take place when we email you to confirm the goods have been despatched (‘Despatch Confirmation Email’). No contract will exist before the email has been sent.
There will be occasions when we cannot accept your order, for example the product may be out of stock or we may have found an error in the price or the description of the product.
If we cannot accept your order we will inform you either in writing or by telephone. If we cannot contact you we may treat your order as cancelled. Accepted orders will be given an order number and we’ll tell you what it is in the Despatch Confirmation Email.
You can review the orders you have placed with us and their status by clicking "My Account" on the homepage at www.curvykate.com.
3. Our products
Whilst we make every effort to display the products accurately, we cannot guarantee that a device’s display will accurately reflect the colour of the products. The images on our website therefore are for illustration purposes only and products may vary slightly from their pictures.
4. Price and payment
The price of the product will be the price indicated on the order pages when you place your order. We take all reasonable care to ensure that the price of the product advised to you is correct.
Prices on our site represent the price you will pay. For UK customers this includes VAT at the current rate. For customers in the Channel Isles (Jersey, Guernsey, Aldernay, Sark and Herm) we will, on request refund the VAT on any items you have chosen to keep. Refunds must be requested within 60 days of the original order being placed.
It is always possible that despite our best efforts we may get the price wrong.
Where the product’s correct price is lower than our stated price we will charge the lower amount and refund any excess paid.
Where the product’s correct price is higher than our stated price we will contact you for your instructions before we accept the order.
If we accept the order and a ‘Despatch Confirmation Email’ is sent and a pricing error is obvious, unmistakeable and could reasonably have been recognised by you as mispricing, we may require the return of any products provided to you and we will refund any sums you have paid.
We accept payment by the methods detailed within the checkout process. You must pay for the goods before we dispatch them.
We will from time to time offer promotions and/or promotion codes on our products.
To redeem a promotion code, enter the code when prompted during the checkout process and click Apply. Providing your purchase meets with the promotion code requirements your discount will be applied.
Promotion codes cannot be used against orders for gift cards.
Promotion codes are only valid for a limited time and may be withdrawn at any time and without notice.
Only one promotion code may be used per order.In the event of part of the order being returned, the value of the discount applied on that order will be spread between the goods proportionately.
6. Delivering the products
The costs of delivery and estimated delivery times can be found here. We are not responsible for delays that are outside our control.
All orders are dispatched from the United Kingdom, worldwide. When goods are dispatched outside of the UK by Curvy Kate it is our duty to declare their full value on the packaging.
For EU orders, delivery duty and customs charges will be covered on your behalf.
For countries outside the UK & EU, depending on the customs authorities, you could be liable for paying additional duty/tax, and this is dependent on the types of goods that you are purchasing plus their total value, although some items can be imported without any customs charges at all. The customs charge is imposed by customs authorities in each individual destination country and unfortunately, we can’t take any responsibility for it.
Please refrain from asking us to mark down the value of your parcel as we are obligated to declare the full value of goods so that we comply with import regulations. In addition to this, if we receive your parcel back due to unpaid customs charges then we may deduct part of your refund in order to cover return charges and fees incurred.
For any questions regarding customs charges to pay, please contact your local customs authority prior to making your purchase.
7. Your rights to make changes
We want you to be 100% happy with your order.If you wish to return a product you may do so provided this is done within 90 days of the original despatch date.
