Terms & Conditions
Welcome to the Palmers Department Store Ltd website terms and conditions for use. These terms and conditions apply to the use of this website and by placing an order with us you agree to be bound by the terms and conditions set out below.
The Contract Between Us
Before Palmers Department Store Ltd can accept your order we need to have received your full payment via SagePay, PayPal or Google Checkout. Once we have received your payment we will confirm that your order has been received by sending an email to you at the email address you provide in your order form. Our confirmation of receipt of your order will amount to an acceptance of your order (unless it specifically says otherwise) and will create a legally binding contract between us.
Our Right To Refuse Your Order
We reserve the right to refuse your order for any reason, whether or not payment has been received by us, if:
• we have run out of stock for the goods you have ordered
• we do not do standard delivery to your area
• one or more of the goods you ordered was listed at an incorrect price due to a typographical error or a mistake in the pricing information that we have received from our suppliers
If we do need to refuse your order we will notify you by phone or e-mail and will re-credit to your account any payment that we have received from your credit card as soon as possible (which will always be within 30 days of your original order). Unfortunately we cannot offer any further compensation for any disappointment you experienced.
Recycling of electrical and electronic equipment
Recycle your electrical devices free at your local recycling centre. To find your nearest centre, visit the Recycle More website and type in your postcode.
Unwanted electrical equipment is the UK’s fastest growing type of waste. Many electrical items can be repaired or recycled, saving natural resources and the environment. If you do not recycle electrical equipment it will end up in landfill where hazardous substances will leak out and cause soil and water contamination – harming wildlife and also human health.
We are proud to support your local authority in providing local recycling facilities for electrical equipment. To remind you that old electrical equipment can be recycled, it is now marked with crossed-out wheeled bin symbol. Please do not throw any electrical equipment (including those marked with this symbol) in your household bin.
The Waste Electrical or Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Directive requires countries to maximise separate collection and environmentally friendly processing of these items. In the UK, distributors including retailers must provide a system which allows all customers buying new electrical equipment the opportunity to recycle their old items free of charge. As a responsible retailer, we have met the requirements placed on us by financially supporting the national network of WEEE recycling centres established by local authorities. This is achieved through membership of the national Distributor Take-back scheme (DTS)
To find out more information on WEEE recycling and to locate you’re nearest recycling centre please visit the Recycle More website.

In the event of a complaint please contact us directly; we endeavour to resolve any issues or queries as quickly and as effectively as possible. Due to the nature of our products once they have been used we cannot accept their return, therefore please ensure that you thoroughly inspect your goods before you use them. We can only accept the return of used items if they are faulty. If you do receive a faulty, damaged or incorrect item please contact us via email: email@example.com, or phone: 01439 844 291.

To cancel your contract you must notify us in writing or email. If you have received the goods before you cancel your contract then please send the goods back in a pristine condition, unopened, to our contact address at your own cost and risk. If you cancel your contract before you have received the goods but we have already processed them for delivery please do not unpack the goods when you receive them and send them back to us at our contact address at your own cost and risk as soon as possible.
Once you have notified us that you are cancelling your contract, any sum debited to us from your credit card will be re-credited as soon as the goods have been returned to us and inspected for any defects; payment will be processed as soon as possible and always within 30 days of your order.
If you cancel the contract but do not return the goods to us in the condition they were in when delivered to you or do not pay the costs of delivery, we will be entitled to deduct the direct costs of recovering the goods from the amount to be re-credited to you.
If the goods we deliver are not what you ordered or are damaged, defective or the incorrect quantity, then we shall have no liability to you unless you notify us, in writing, of the problem within 10 working days of the delivery of the goods in question (except where you are dealing as a consumer within the meaning of the Unfair Contract Terms Act 1977).
If you have not received the goods that you ordered within 30 days of the date on which you ordered them, then we shall have no liability to you unless you notify us, in writing, of the problem within 40 days of the date on which you ordered the goods.
If you notify us of a problem under this condition then at your option we will either:
• make good any shortage or non-delivery;
• replace or repair any goods that are damaged or defective; or
• refund to you the amount paid by you for the goods in question and we shall have no further liability to you
Save as precluded by law we will not be liable to you for any indirect or consequential loss, damage or expenses (including loss of profits, business or goodwill) howsoever arising out of any problem you notify to us under this condition and we shall have no liability to pay any money to you by way of compensation other than to refund to you the amount paid by you for the goods in question under the clause above.

Third party Rights
