3. Ordering from us
3.1 You are deemed to place an order with us by ordering via our online checkout process. As part of our checkout process you will be given the opportunity to check your order and to correct any errors. We will send you an order acknowledgement, detailing the products you have ordered.
3.2 Our acceptance of an order takes place when delivery is made. When delivery has taken place the contract will be made, unless we have notified you that we do not accept your order or you have cancelled your order:
3.3. We may refuse to accept an order:
a. Where goods, services or information ordered by you are not available;
b. Where we cannot obtain authorisation for your payment;
c. If there has been a pricing or product description error; or
d. If you do not meet any eligibility criteria set out in our terms and conditions;
e. If we do not deliver to your area.
3.4 Where we do not accept your order but have processed your payment, we will re-credit your account with any amount deducted by us via PayPal as soon as possible, but in any event within 30 days of your order. We will not be obliged to pay any additional amount as compensation for disappointment.
3.5 We cannot guarantee that colours in the website are fully equivalent to the item’s actual colour. This depends partly on the colour settings of your computer and monitor. Product packaging may vary to that displayed online.
3.6 For all items made from a natural material, such as stone, fleece, fabric, leather, glass or wood, or that involve hand craftsmanship, it is not possible to guarantee the goods supplied will have the exact colour, shade and pattern or finish as shown on the website. Please only order if you are fully confident of the finishes, sizes and colours of the product you have chosen. Samples of fabric may be available on request.
3.7 Products made from fabric, such as wash bags, cushions, tea towels etc may have a different pattern placement to that shown online, and therefore may vary from the image shown online.
3.8 Images online are as accurate as possible to match the product, but computer monitors vary greatly. Samples are intended as a representation of colour and texture only, and will not show the whole design. Fabric roll batch variations can occur. Natural fabric will often have small slubs within the weave. This is not considered to be a fault but part of the charm of the fabric. On receiving your fabric, please inspect carefully before cutting, as cut lengths cannot be returned, nor can we be held responsible for any making up costs of curtains, blinds or upholstery. If fabric is being sent directly to a third party, i.e., a curtain maker, we recommend that they have a sample of the fabric. It is the customers’ responsibility to check that the correct design and colourway has been received. Once cut or handed to a third party we cannot accept responsibility for any errors that may occur.
3.9 Payment is taken at the time your order is placed. We only display through this website some of the items in our current range. We aim to hold stock of all styles and sizes whilst a product is active. We list availability information for products sold by us on the website on each product page.
3.10 If an item is listed as ‘out of stock’ it will not be available for purchase, you are advised to check regularly on the website for availability or contact Solsken for further information.
3.11 Where the supply of your product(s) is delayed or prevented for reasons beyond our control (for example, material shortages, import delays or higher than anticipated demand) we will make every effort to keep you informed but shall be under no liability to you for such delay or failure.
