The Afrotherapy.com website is owned and operated by Afrotherapy, registered office: Unit 7, Carberry Enterprise Park, 36 White Hart Lane, London, N17 8DP.
These Terms and Conditions govern your use of the Afrotherapy.com website and your relationship with Afrotherapy (“AT”, “we” or “us”). Please read them carefully as they affect your rights and liabilities under the law. If you do not agree to these Terms and Conditions, please do not register for or use the AT Site. By using the AT Site you agree to be bound by these Terms and Conditions. Nothing in these Terms and Conditions affects your statutory rights.
1. Proprietary rights
1.1 The content of the AT Site is protected by copyright, trademarks, database and other intellectual property rights. You may retrieve and display the content of the AT Sites on a computer screen, store such content in electronic form on disk (but not any server or other storage device connected to a network) or print one copy of such content for your own personal, non-commercial use, provided you keep intact all and any copyright and proprietary notices. You may not otherwise reproduce, modify, copy or distribute or use for commercial purposes any of the materials or content on the AT Sites without written permission from us.
1.2 No licence is granted to you in these Terms and Conditions to use any trademark or service marks of AT or its licensors.
2. Prices and VAT (Sales Tax)
2.1 Our prices are stated in Pounds Sterling (£) and include Sales Tax (VAT) at the rate of 17.5%. If your order qualifies with us for UK Tax Free Shopping the Sales Tax (VAT) will be automatically deducted during checkout and a service charge of £5 will be made.
2.2 Our VAT Number in the UK is 777 8504 76.
2.3 We clearly show you the price you have to pay for our products. If, by mistake, we have under-priced a product, we will not have to deliver that product to you at the stated price, provided that we tell you before we post the product. You can then decide if you still want the product.
3. Acceptance of your order
3.1 Our products are sold for personal use only. There will be no contract of any kind between you and us unless we actually dispatch the products to you. Your order (including payment) is an offer to buy from us, so nothing we do or say will amount to any acceptance of that offer until we actually send the product to you. At any point up until then, we may decide not to send the products to you and to give you a full refund. If an item is out of stock, we will let you know and unless you then request your payment be returned we will hold your payment until the product is next in stock. At the moment the goods are dispatched (and not before), a contract will be made between you and us.
4. Cancellation and return
4.1 You have the right to cancel your order at any time up to 7 working days after the day following the delivery of the goods by contacting our Customer Services department by telephone, email or post. Your right to cancel is on the basis that we will be able to re-sell the goods to another customer as new when you return them to us; so please do not use or open any sealed packaging. If you have any questions about the goods or need help on deciding whether or not to keep them, please contact Customer Services for more information.
4.2 If the products have already been posted to you (or on your behalf to any other person), you (or the other person) must return the products to us at the time of cancellation and we will credit your credit or debit card with the price of the products within 30 days beginning with the day on which notice of cancellation was given. You should only return products once authorised by a Company representative to do so and you will be provided with the relevant returns address. When returning goods we recommend that you use recorded delivery, or obtain a proof of posting (a proof of posting can be obtained free of charge at any Post Office).
4.3 If you do not return the goods within 7 days of your cancellation, we will make a charge in respect of the cost of recovering the goods. If you do not return the goods or fail to make them available for collection within 30 days of your notice of cancellation, you will be deemed to have accepted the goods, at which point a new purchase contract will be made and you will be charged for your order at the price set out on the web site.
