Terms & Conditions of use and purchase
This page (together with the documents referred to on it) tells you the terms and conditions on which we supply any of the products (Products) listed on our website www.puddlecrafts.co.uk (our site) to you. Please read these terms and conditions carefully before ordering any products from our web site. You should understand that by ordering any of our products, you agree to be bound by these terms and conditions.
You should print a copy of these terms and conditions for future reference.
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 acceptance by us, and we will confirm such acceptance to you by sending you an e-mail that confirms that the product has been despatched (the "Despatch Confirmation"). The contract between us ("Contract") will only be formed when we send you the Despatch Confirmation.
- The Contract will relate only to those products whose despatch we have confirmed in the Despatch Confirmation. We will not be obliged to supply any other products which may have been part of your order until the despatch of such products has been confirmed in a separate Despatch Confirmation.
Availability and Delivery
- Your order will be delivered as quickly as possible. Please see our delivery & returns page for more detailed information.
Risk and Title
- The products will be at your risk from the time of delivery. This means that once we have received payment, shipped the parcel and have a valid certificate of postage, the contract is complete and the items are your ownership and you bear any risk in not receiving the order.
- 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.
Price and Payment
- The price of any products will be as quoted on our site, except in cases of obvious error
- Prices are liable to change at any time, but changes will not affect orders in respect of which we have already sent you a dispatch confirmation email.
- 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 so that, where a product's correct price is less than our stated price, we will charge the lower amount when dispatching the product to you. If a product's correct price is higher than the price stated on our site, we will normally, at our discretion, either contact you for instructions before dispatching the product, or reject your order and notify you of such rejection.
Our refunds policy

- If we fail, at any time during the term of a Contract, to insist upon strict performance of any of your obligations under the Contract or any of these terms and conditions, or if we fail to exercise any of the rights or remedies to which we are entitled under the Contract, this shall not constitute a waiver of such rights or remedies and shall not relieve you from compliance with such obligations.

- If any of these terms and Conditions or any provisions of a Contract are determined by any competent authority to be invalid, unlawful or unenforceable to any extent, such term, condition or provision will to that extent be severed from the remaining terms, conditions and provisions which will continue to be valid to the fullest extent permitted by law.
