Online Purchases

Entering into a contract

The images of the range in the online shop are intended as an illustration and do not constitute binding offers for sale. By completing the order process by clicking on the "Order & Pay Now" button the customer makes a binding offer to enter into a purchase contract. The customer thereupon receives an automated confirmation of receipt of order by e-mail (order confirmation). This order confirmation does not constitute acceptance of the offer. The contract with Ginger&Browns Ltd. is only concluded when Ginger&Browns Ltd. sends the ordered product to the customer and the shipping to the customer is confirmed by e-mail (shipping confirmation).

Images

The photographs on the Ginger&Browns Ltd. website are illustrative only, colours may appear differently on a screen to the product in reality, and patterns for fabric can vary as they are a handmade product. The photos have been edited sympathetically to ensure the image represents the product as fairly as we can.

Sizes

All sizes are approximate. The buyer should be aware, particularly with handmade items, that the true sizes can vary around the stated size. For uniformity, Ginger&Browns has used inches over centimetres, as items like collars and coats are often standardised this way.

Prices

All prices include VAT where applicable.

Shipping charges

Ginger&Browns Ltd. delivers to the UK only Mainland, excluding the Highlands. The price for delivery is £3.99, or £9.99 depending upon the weight and size of your order. The charge can be seen at check out before the order is complete.  Customers will not incur additional shipping costs should a delivery be divided into several consignments for technical or logistical reasons. We do not charge for selecting the click & collect option.

Dispatch & Delivery

Delivery is available in the UK mainland excluding the Highlands.

Ginger&Browns Ltd. will always aim to dispatch an order within 3 working days, rare exceptions may take longer. The quantities displayed as available are a guide only. The stock check is kept as up-to-date as possible, but as it applies to both the online, and physical store, it is possible for a customer to purchase the last item online and in-store simultaneously. Items that become out of stock in this fashion will be re-ordered at the earliest possible opportunity, and dispatched within 24 hours of receipt in store. Due to the nature of the items we sell, such as being handmade, it may take 2-3 weeks for the item to arrive. If the item is to take longer than 7 working days before dispatch, Ginger&Browns Ltd. will contact the buyer to let them know the new estimate, or process a refund.

Click & Collect orders will aim to be processed and ready within 24 hours of order receipt. An email confirming your order is ready to collect will be sent to the email address given at checkout. Simply bring a print out, or show us the confirmation email on your phone upon collection. As with the stock-check disclaimer above, any simultaneous purchase of the last item will result in the buyer being notified at the earliest opportunity, and a new estimate or refund will be given.

Ginger&Browns Ltd. reserves the right to use the delivery company of their choosing, but Ginger&Browns Ltd. will not be held responsible for delays caused by the delivery company, after it has left our premises. Ginger&Browns Ltd reserves the right to request the buyer allows more time to allow for delivery, when this advice is given to Ginger&Browns Ltd. from the delivery company.

In the event that Ginger&Browns Ltd. is unable to deliver the ordered product because Ginger&Browns Ltd. itself is not supplied by its own suppliers, without culpability on the part of Ginger&Browns Ltd, Ginger&Browns Ltd. may withdraw from the contract. In such a case, the buyer will be contacted without delay and propose a comparable product. If a comparable product is not available, or if the customer does not wish to have that product delivered, Ginger&Browns Ltd. shall refund the payments made by the customer.

Items that are damaged when they are delivered, or are missing from a delivery must be reported within 24 hours of receipt, to info@gingerandbrowns.co.uk Allowing Ginger&Browns Ltd. to raise a complaint with the carrier. Failure to do so will not affect the customer’s statutory guarantee rights.
