Terms & Conditions

Terms & Conditions

This is the legal bit, which might be boring and rarely read but it is important, so I do urge you to read, mark and inwardly digest all this stuff before you buy anything.

By accessing or using any part of the site, you agree to be bound by these Terms and Conditions. If you do not agree to all the terms and conditions of this agreement, then you may not access the website or use any Services provided therein.

These Terms and Conditions apply to all users of the site, including without limitation users who are browsers, vendors, customers, merchants, and/or contributors of content.

By agreeing to these Terms and Conditions, you represent that you are over the age of majority in your country of residence, or that you have given us your consent to allow any of your minor dependents to use this site.

Definitions

This website is operated by Dante Books. The following definitions apply throughout the site, including in these Terms & Conditions of Service.

The terms “we”, “us” and “our” refer to Dante Books. The term “Service” (capitalised) implies our engagement with anybody who visits our site and/or purchases a product from us. “Terms”, “Terms & Conditions” and “Conditions” (all capitalised) all mean the Terms and Conditions of Service stated herein.

The Contract 

Any contract for purchases made through the website will be with A.P. Dante, whose trading entity, DanteBooks is situated at Flat #1, 1 De Grouchy Lane, Southampton. SO17 1XD.

We must receive payment of the whole price for the goods that you order before your order can be accepted, and the contract formed. Once payment has been received, we will confirm that your order has been received by sending an email to you at the email address you provide when placing the order. By despatching the items you have ordered, we signal our acceptance of your order, which brings into existence a legally binding contract between us on the terms and conditions stated herein, and any term sought to be imposed by you in your order will not form part of that contract.

We are entitled to withdraw from the contract in the case of obvious errors or inaccuracies regarding the goods appearing on our website. If an error or inaccuracy is discovered with regards to the advertised price of the goods that you have ordered, we will contact you as soon as possible by email. This will be to inform you of the correct price of the goods, and to ask you if you wish to continue with the order at the amended price, or to cancel the order altogether.

You are entitled to withdraw from the contract in the circumstance set out here. This right to withdraw applies to individuals only, it does not apply to business buyers.

You may withdraw your order for goods at any time up to the end of the fifth working day after you have received the goods provided always that you have not removed the goods from the sealed package in which they were delivered. You do not need to give us any reason for withdrawing your order nor will you have to pay any penalty. You must notify us by email of your intention to withdraw your order.

The only circumstance in which you cannot withdraw your order is where you have taken the goods you have ordered (or the ones in relation to which you want to withdraw) out of the sealed package in which they were delivered. In which case you should refer to our Refunds and Returns policy.

To withdraw your order, you must notify us by email at the email address set out in our website.

If you have received the goods before you withdraw your order then, unless you have lost your right to withdraw because you have taken the goods out of their sealed package, you must send them back to our return address at your own cost and risk. Refer to our Refunds and Returns policy if you wish to return an item having removed it from its original packaging.

If you withdraw your order after the goods have been shipped but before you have received them, you must not unpack the goods when they are received by you and you must send the goods back to our return address at your own cost and risk as soon as possible.

Once you have notified us that you are withdrawing your order, any sum you have paid to us will be refunded to the account from which the original payment was made as soon as possible and in any event within 30 days of your order.

Nothing in the contract creates any right which is enforceable by any person who is not a party to the contract.

Faulty or Damaged Goods

If on receipt goods are found to be faulty, damaged, not as described, or not as ordered, you must contact us by email at the email address set out in our website. On receipt of such notification from you we will respond with any remedial action proposed or required within 3 working days.

Availability of Goods  

In some circumstances, we may place a limit on the number of copies of a particular book or product that you can order. If we have insufficient stock to deliver some or all of the goods ordered by you, we will notify you as soon as possible which parts of your order we will accept and which we will reject. Sums debited (if any) by us from your debit or credit card, or from any other source of payment in respect of goods we are unable or unwilling to supply to you will be re-credited to your account and we will notify you by email which parts of your order have been satisfied and which have been rejected. Any refund will be made as soon as possible and in any event within 7 days of your order. We will not be obliged, nor will we be liable, to offer any additional compensation for any disappointment suffered.

Products and Prices

We reserve the right to modify products or prices and to discontinue any product offering or other service without notice at any time. We shall not be liable to you or to any third-party for any such modification, suspension or discontinuance. We have made every reasonable effort to display as accurately as possible images of products for sale in our store, but we cannot guarantee that your computer's display of any image will be accurate. Images will faithfully reflect the item offered for sale but we do not warrant that images will be of the actual item as they may be 'stock' photos.

Multi-Buy Offers

If you choose to purchase a product from a multi-buy offer, but do not purchase enough products to qualify for the special discount, the product will be charged at the normal price. Please note that on 4 for 3 promotions (and other such multi-buy offers), the lowest priced title will always be the 'free' item.

Delivery

We will ship the goods ordered by you to the person and address you provide at the time you make your order. Delivery will be made as soon as possible after your order is accepted. All delivery times quoted on the website are provided by the carrier in good faith and are estimates only. You will become the owner of the goods you have ordered when the goods are dispatched to you by us.

eGifts

Orders for eGifts cannot be exchanged or refunded, except in accordance with your statutory rights. Risk in the eGift shall pass to you upon electronic delivery of the eGift. You are able to cancel your eGift order at any time up to 7 days after the day your order was placed. However, you agree that your right to cancellation is waived upon the electronic delivery of your eGift, as detailed in the order confirmation email you receive.

 

Our Liability

If the goods we deliver are not what you ordered or are damaged or defective or the delivery is of an incorrect quantity, we shall have no liability to you unless you notify us of the problem, by email or in writing, within 5 working days of the delivery of goods in question.

If you do not receive goods ordered by you within 30 days of the date on which they were dispatched to you, we shall have no liability to you unless you notify us of the problem, by email or in writing, within 35 days of the date on which the goods were dispatched to you.

If you notify a problem to us under this condition, our only obligation will be, at our option, to make good any shortage or non-delivery; to replace any goods that are damaged or defective; or to refund to you the amount paid by you for the goods in question to the original method of payment, unless such method is no longer valid in which case, we will issue a store credit to the value of the refund due.

We will not be liable to you for any indirect or consequential loss or damage arising out of any problem you notify to us under this condition and we shall have no liability to pay any money to you by way of compensation other than to refund to you the amount paid by you for the goods in question. We expressly exclude any liability to you or any third party for any loss of profit, administrative inconvenience, disappointment, or other direct, indirect or consequential loss or damage.
