The ordering process and order confirmations
Your order constitutes an offer to us to buy the relevant product. All orders are subject to availability and to acceptance by us. We will send you an email acknowledging receipt of your order. Please note that this does not constitute acceptance by us. The contract for purchase of the product is only formed when we send you an email confirming the dispatch of your order shipment.
We reserve the right not to accept an order for any reason (including, but not limited to, where we have not been able to obtain authorisation for payment, shipping restrictions apply or a product is out of stock).
Prices and payment
The price of a product shall be as stated on this website at the time you place your order except in the case of obvious error. Our prices may change at any time but price changes will not affect orders we have confirmed with you. If the price of a product is obviously wrong, we will not be obliged to provide the product to you at that price.
Customers have the option to view pricing in GBP. Prices shown are inclusive of UK VAT (where applicable) at the current rate. If the country of shipment is outside the UK but within the EU and dependent territories prices will be shown inclusive of VAT.
At the time of checkout, all other countries are shown a price excluding VAT prior to purchase as no VAT will be due on these orders.
Prices shown are exclusive of any customs duty charges which can be incurred at the time of arriving in the destination country.
We accept payment by the following debit or credit cards only: Mastercard, Visa, Visa Electron, UK Maestro. Payment will be debited from your account at the time the order is submitted to us online.
You confirm that the credit/debit card that is being used is yours. All credit/debit card holders are subject to validation checks and authorisation by the card issuer. If the issuer of your card refuses to authorise payment we will not accept your order and we will not be responsible for any delay or non-delivery and we are not obliged to inform you of the reason for the refusal.
We are not responsible for your card issuer or bank charging you as a result of our processing of your credit/debit card payment in accordance with your order.
Insurance and Delivery
A. White (U.K.) Limited insures each order during the time it is in transit until it is delivered to your specified delivery address. We require a signature for any goods delivered, at which point responsibility for your purchased goods passes on to you. If you have specified a recipient who is not you for delivery purposes (for example as a gift) then you accept that evidence of a signature by them (or at that delivery address) is evidence of delivery and fulfullment of the order, and transfer of responsibility in the same way.
We aim to dispatch all orders within 48 business hours. Estimated delivery times are to be used as a guide only and commence from the date of dispatch. Prices do not include customs duty fees. A. WHITE (U.K.) Limited is not responsible for any delays caused by the destination customs clearance processes.
Returns and Exchanges
Cancelling Your Order Under the Distance Selling Regulations
If you are based in the EU, under the Consumer Protection (Distance Selling) Regulations 2000 (DSRs), you have the right to cancel your order with us provided you give us written notice. Notice can be given any time after your order has been placed, up until 7 working days from the day after you received you order. Notice of contract cancellation under the DSRs must be given in writing using the form and be sent to: Alexander-White.com Customer Service; Corser House, 17. Green End, Whitchurch Shropshire SY13 1AD: or by email to: email@example.com.
For orders cancelled under the DSRs, we will issue you with a full refund including the shipping cost. However, you will need to return the entire order to us by secure means to ensure it reaches us in good condition, at your own cost. Cancelled orders should be returned to: A. WHITE (U.K.) LIMITED, Corser House, 17. Green End, Whitchurch Shropshire, SY13 1AD, United Kingdom. All items must be returned unused and in their original condition, from the original delivery country.
We recommend that you insure the return shipment as you are under a duty to take reasonable care of the goods and will be liable for damage to them until we receive them at our warehouse. In case of dispute, we also recommend you retain proof of sending. Refunds will be issued within 30 days of us receiving your cancellation notice. If we do not receive the cancelled order back, we will arrange to have it collected from you at your cost.
Please note you may only use your right to cancel the order under the DSRs if you give us formal written notice of cancellation any time after your order has been placed, up until 7 working days from the day after you receive you order, by email or post as described above.
Our free collections service (see below) is not available for orders cancelled under the DSRs.
Returns and Exchanges Using our Free Collection Service
As an alternative to using your rights under the DSRs, you may prefer to return or exchange items using our free returns and exchanges collection service. You must request your Returns Merchandise Authorization (RMA) number within 14 days of order receipt and return your unwanted items within 14 days of receiving your RMA number, for a refund of the value of the item only, or an exchange for the same item in a different size, based on stock availability. If you wish to exchange your item for an alternative product, we suggest that you return it for a store credit and purchase the new item separately.
The 14 days notice begins on the day after you receive your product and respectively, the day after receiving your RMA number.
Please refer to our Returns & Exchanges instructions and Returns Policy for further information.
Shipping is complementary on the replacement item, but exchanges made to destinations outside of the UK will be processed for customs clearance and therefore any relevant import duty and tax charges will apply.
Please note our free collection service is not available for orders cancelled under the DSRs.
We will refund the purchase price of products returned and our lowest delivery charge relevant to you within fourteen days (beginning on the day after the day we receive the products back from you) We will not refund the cost of returning products to us outside of our free collection service.
Please note that if you fail to take care of returned products, or fail to return the product to us, we will be entitled to reduce the amount we refund to you to take into account the reduction in value of the product or to withhold the refund.
Return of faulty products
If a product is of an unsatisfactory quality or does not meet the description given on the Website at the time you placed your order, please contact us as soon as possible on firstname.lastname@example.org. Upon return, if we confirm unsatisfactory quality, we will refund the purchase price, delivery charge and any reasonable costs you incur in returning it to us.

Our total liability to you for any loss or damage arising in connection to this Agreement will be limited to 150% of the value of products purchased by you.

These Terms are personal to you. You may not transfer your rights or obligations under these Terms to anyone else without our written consent. These Terms are not intended to give rights to anyone except you and us.
We will do our best to resolve any disputes over these Terms.
