Terms and Conditions
This page tells you the terms and conditions on which we supply the products listed on our website www.secondnatureonline.co.uk (“our site”) to you. Please read these terms and conditions carefully before ordering any products from our site.
You should understand that by ordering any of our products, you agree to be bound by these terms and conditions.
These terms and conditions do not affect your statutory rights as a consumer.
Second Nature uses SSL to keep our customers details secure at all times. We do not hold any payment details at any time. Order and delivery details are held on a secure server with brute force protection as standard at a server and site level.
Payment details are held by our payment providers – Paypal and Sagepay. Transactions are verified by Visa and Mastercard.
Your order to buy on our site constitutes an offer, which can then be accepted by Second Nature by the dispatch of the products ordered (a “Sale” or “Purchase”). All products presented for purchase on our site are subject to availability.
Please be aware that for products dispatched overseas Second Nature is not responsible for the payment of any import duty, customs charges or any other fees levied locally for such products, and that you may be asked to pay any such duty, charges or fees at the point of delivery.
Processing of Orders
We endeavour to process your order within 24 hours of receiving it, and to pack it and prepare it for dispatch within 48 hours. Delivery will normally be within 1 – 3 working days from order time but please allow 3-5 working days. Second Nature will use all reasonable endeavours to meet the above guidelines but would appreciate your understanding that this is not always possible.
We try and hold all items in stock but if we do find that your item is unavailable, we will inform you as soon as possible and will provide you with an estimated delivery time. You will also have the option of cancelling the order and obtaining a full refund if the item is not expected back in stock or if the waiting time is more than you prefer!
Second Nature makes every effort to ensure that products arrive in perfect condition. However, in the unlikely event of a product arriving damaged, customers should contact us as above within 5 days of receipt of the product. In order to help us investigate the damage it will be useful if you can provide photographic evidence of damage both to the product and/or its packaging. We would ask that you return the item within 10 days – in most cases a refund or replacement will be offered.
If ordering fragile goods from overseas it may not be possible to insure the items in which case they will be transported at the buyers risk. We take great care to pack fragile goods but if they cannot be insured against damage then we cannot take responsibility for breakages.
Price and Payment
The price of any products will be as quoted on our site, except in cases of obvious error. These prices include VAT where applicable but exclude delivery costs, which will be added to the total amount due as detailed on our site. Prices are liable to change at any time, but changes will not affect orders already placed.
Risk and Title
The Products will be at your risk from the time of delivery. Ownership of the products will only pass to you when we receive full payment of all sums due in respect of the products, including delivery charges.
Events outside our control
We will not be liable or responsible for any failure to perform, or delay in performance of, any of our obligations under these terms and conditions that is caused by events outside our reasonable control (“Force Majeure Event”). A Force Majeure Event includes any act, event, non-happening, omission or accident beyond our reasonable control and includes in particular (without limitation) the following:
- Strikes, lock-outs or other industrial action;
- Civil commotion, riot, invasion, terrorist attack or threat of terrorist attack, war (whether declared or not) or threat or preparation for war;
- Fire, explosion, storm, flood, earthquake, subsidence, epidemic or other natural disaster;
- Impossibility of the use of railways, shipping, aircraft, motor transport or other means of public or private transport;
- Impossibility of the use of public or private telecommunications networks; or
- The acts, decrees, legislation, regulations or restrictions of any government;
Our performance under any Sale is deemed to be suspended for the period that the Force Majeure Event continues, and we will have an extension of time for performance for the duration of that period. We will use our reasonable endeavours to bring the Force Majeure Event to a close or to find a solution by which our obligations under these terms and conditions may be performed despite the Force Majeure Event.
