PRIVACY POLICY

To comply with the latest laws on data protection, introduced on 25 May 2018, we have moved our privacy policy to a separate document, with no technical jargon, which can be found here.


ORDERS

You can submit an order by selecting the goods that You wish to purchase then proceeding to the checkout area of the plumbpal.co.uk website ('the Website'). Any orders submitted by You are accepted subject to satisfactory payment information being received, processed and accepted by Us. Once such payment information has been received, processed and accepted by Us We will send You an e-mail acknowledging and accepting Your order ('the Order Acknowledgement'). We shall be under no contractual obligation to supply any goods or services to You until the Order Acknowledgement has been sent to You. By submitting an order You will be signing up to receive a daily email or text from Us displaying the current "deal of the day". If You do not want to receive this there is a facility to unsubscribe from either option once received.


PRICE

The price of the goods shall be the price displayed on the Website at the time which You place Your order, however, We reserve the right to amend the price if the price has been altered by an unauthorised third party or that the price is wrong by genuine mistake of Our employees, agents or affiliates. In these circumstances We shall inform You of the actual price as soon as possible but in any event before goods are dispatched and You will have the opportunity to cancel Your order.


GOODS

Although We make every effort to ensure that Our Website correctly states whether or not goods are in stock, there may be occasions where You submit an order for goods which are out of stock. In such cases We shall endeavour to supply a product of the same or greater quality and/or specification for the same price as the original goods ('the Substituted Goods'). If You are unhappy with the Substituted Goods, You may return the Substituted Goods within a period of 14 working days beginning on the day after the date in which You receive the Substituted Goods for a full refund of the price of the Substituted Goods and of the delivery costs. If We are unable to supply Substituted Goods We will inform You of this fact and shall return payment to Your account. Please note that all sizes and measurements of goods are approximate (although We do try to make sure that they are as accurate as possible) and colours or designs may vary slightly from those depicted on the Website. When this happens the goods supplied are not Substituted Goods.


DELIVERY

Goods ordered by You prior to 1pm on working days will, to the best of our ability, be delivered the next working day. Goods ordered by You shall be delivered within a reasonable period of time (usually no more than 3-5 working days). However, any dates for delivery which We indicate to You are (unless specifically agreed with Our Customer Services Team) given as an estimate only and Your delivery date can never be guaranteed. You may contact Our Customer Services Team to track the delivery of Your order at any time. In addition to this, if You have not received Your goods within 28 days of receiving the Order Acknowledgement We kindly request that You contact Our Customer Service team. Upon receipt of correspondence supporting your claim we will issue replacement goods in the post or, if the goods are out of stock issue either Substituted Goods or a refund. We reserve the right to levy a further delivery charge if the reason that goods were not delivered to You was that the goods were not collected by You from CityLink (or any other carrier that We have used), or if You failed to arrange a re-delivery directly with CityLink (or any other carrier), and We issue replacement goods to You. Please note that our standard delivery service is only available to mainland UK addresses.
