HOW THE CONTRACT IS FORMED BETWEEN YOU AND US
After placing an order, you will receive an e-mail from us acknowledging that we have received your order. Please note that this does not mean that your order has been accepted. Your order constitutes an offer to us to buy a product. All orders are subject to availability and acceptance by us, and we will confirm such acceptance to you by sending you an e-mail that confirms that the product has been dispatched. The contract between us will only be formed when we send you the dispatch confirmation. We will not process your order until payment has been received in full. If you make a mistake with your order, you may be able to correct it by contacting us on [email protected] prior to your order being dispatched. If your order has already been dispatched, please return the products to us in accordance with our returns policy.
The contract will relate only to those products whose dispatch we have confirmed in the dispatch confirmation. We will not be obliged to supply any other products which may have been part of your order until the dispatch of such products has been confirmed in a separate dispatch confirmation. We are entitled to refuse any order made by you for any reason. All details you provide to us requesting goods or services must be true and accurate, you must be the authorised user of the credit or debit card used, and there must be sufficient funds to cover the cost of the goods and services. It is your responsibility to inform us of any changes to these details as soon as possible.
YOUR RIGHT TO CANCEL THE CONTRACT
If you are an EEA customer you have a right to cancel a contract under the Consumer Contracts Regulations at any time within 30 calendar days. In the case of an order for a single product, the cancellation period begins on the day after you received the product. In the case of an order for multiple products, the cancellation period begins on the day after you received the last product in your order (in the event that the products are delivered on different dates).
YOUR RIGHT FOR A REFUND OR EXCHANGE
If for any reason you are not completely satisfied with the goods we will be happy to offer you a refund or exchange, providing the following conditions are met:
- Items must be returned within 14 days
- Items must be in a resalable condition (as new)
- Items must be complete with all tags and packaging in a reusable condition.
We cannot accept any used items that do not meet these conditions and any such items will be returned to the purchaser. Returns received after 14 days of receipt will only be accepted at the discretion of Pockets.
If alterations are needed they must be paid for by the customer. Once an item has been modified in any way it will no longer be suitable for a return or exchange.
ITEM OUT OF STOCK
If the product that you have selected is not available will be notified by email and the order will be cancelled, any payment already made by the customer will be refunded in full.
It is your responsibility to check the washing instructions as stated by the manufacturer on each individual garment's labels. Any information provided by this website is given to aid the buying process only, we shall not be liable for any damage, costs, or expenses caused by incorrect washing.
TRYING ITEMS ON
When trying on items please ensure that you are in a smoke and scent free environment, and not wearing perfume, aftershave, or a deodorant which may leave a scent or mark on the item. We will be unable to accept the return of any item where there is evidence that these guidelines have not be adhered to.
Depending upon your location the cost of items on the Pockets website may be estimated in your local currency based on recent exchange rates. However, the true price of the order will be based on the UK price in pounds sterling at the time of purchase. If the purchase is made by a customer living outside the EU, the goods will be sold excluding UK VAT. The customs office may hold your goods if the local import taxes are not paid. Pockets cannot undervalue orders when arranging delivery. The customer takes full responsibility for any postal charges, return shipping costs, customs charges and handling fees should they refuse to accept a parcel due to import duties or taxes.
Pockets are pleased to be able to offer EU and International delivery to most countries worldwide. Please look at the list of available countries at checkout, to determine if your location is available.
Pockets use DPD and DHL Express for all UK orders. International orders (including to EU countries) are shipped via DHL Express Worldwide. Goods will be insured during the time it is in transit up until it is delivered to you or an agreed recipient.
We require a signature for any goods delivered, at which point responsibility for your purchased goods passes to you. If you have specified somebody else to accept the delivery, then you accept that evidence of a signature by them (or somebody at the specified delivery address) is evidence that the delivery has been fulfilled by Pockets.
Orders placed over a public holiday or weekend will not be dispatched until the next working day. The delivery times indicated are based on working days (Monday to Friday) and delays may be incurred during public holidays.
Please be aware that in the interests of credit card fraud detection and prevention, it is Pockets policy to undertake several checks to ensure the validity of any transaction before goods are dispatched to a customer.
If you have chosen our new HubBox Click & Collect option you will also receive a notification when your order arrives at the designated collection point - please take your HubBox reference number as proof of collection.
PRICE AND PAYMENT
Payment for all items is required prior to dispatch. Prices displayed on the website are in pounds sterling, and include UK VAT but exclude delivery charges. Delivery charges are shown separately when ordering and must also be paid when the order is placed. Payment must be made by the means specified on the website, and shall not be deemed to be made until we have received cleared funds in respect of the full amount stated in the order. Please note that we are unable to accept payment by cheque, postal order, email, bank transfer, or cash on delivery.
As an online store, we will often run short timed sales promotions, allowing you to get items at a lower price for a certain period. Prices are subject to change without notice but changes will not affect orders which we have already accepted. It is not possible to get the difference refunded should you see that the price has changed at a later date.
Our site contains a large number of products and it is always possible that, despite our best efforts, some of the products listed on our site may be incorrectly priced. We will normally verify prices as part of our dispatch procedures, and if an incorrect price is identified we will contact you to ascertain if you wish to proceed with the order at the correct price. We are under no obligation to provide the product to you at the incorrect (lower) price, and it is at Pockets discretion to do so.
At present payment for all products must be by credit or debit card, we also accept payments via PayPal.
As the cost of your order will be based on the UK price in pounds sterling, the cost of the order in your local currency will depend on the exchange rate at the time of purchase. Whilst prices may be viewed on the website in Euros and Dollars this is an estimate based on recent exchange rates, and may not be an exact reflection of the final order price. We can offer tax-free pricing for non-EU customers, but customs and import duties are the responsibility of the customer.
Only one promotion code can be used per order.
Where items are purchased in bulk, Pockets reserves the right to charge a shipping surcharge. The customer will be notified of this surcharge prior to dispatch and given the opportunity to cancel or amend the order without penalty.
All goods sold by Pockets are individually identifiable, guaranteed to be genuine and sourced from official distributors. Returns will not be accepted under any circumstances where labels and tags have been removed, or the garment altered in any way.
