Terms & Conditions
These Terms and Conditions govern the use of www.marketroyale.co.uk (the "Web Site") and the provision of the goods advertised for sale on this Web Site (the "Goods"). and applies as between the user (""you") of this Web Site and Steven Handley trading as Market Royale of 60 High Street, Chobham, Surrey, United Kingdom GU24 8AA, (""we or us") the owner(s) of this Web Site. Your agreement to comply with and be bound by these Terms and Conditions is deemed to occur upon your first use of the Web Site. If you do not agree to be bound by these Terms and Conditions, you should stop using the Web Site immediately.
No part of this Web Site is intended to constitute a contractual offer capable of acceptance. Your order constitutes a contractual offer and our acceptance of that offer is deemed to occur upon our accepting payment for the Goods and when we send you a confirmatory email of the order to you. We will then send a dispatch email to you indicating that your order has been fulfilled and is on its way to you (the 'Dispatch Email'). The contract between us will be formed when the Dispatch Email is sent to you. We reserve the right not to accept orders.
Please note that in some cases, we accept orders as agents on behalf of third party sellers. The resulting legal contract is between you and that third party seller, and is subject to the terms and conditions of that third party seller, which they will advise you of directly. You should carefully review their terms and conditions applying to the transaction.
Persons under the age of 18 should use this Web Site only with the supervision of an Adult. By placing an order through the Web Site you warrant that you are at least 18 years old.
These Terms and Conditions do not apply to customers buying Goods in the course of business.
If Goods are being ordered from outside the United Kingdom, import duties and taxes may be incurred once your Goods reach their destination. We are not responsible for these charges and we undertake to make no calculations or estimates in this regard. If you are buying internationally, you are advised to contact your local customs authorities for further details on costs and procedures. As the purchaser of the Goods, you will also be the importer of record and as such should ensure that your purchase is in full compliance with the laws of the country into which the Goods are being imported. Please be aware that Goods may be inspected on arrival at port for customs purposes and we cannot guarantee that the packaging of your Goods will be free of signs of tampering.
Please also note that you must comply with all applicable laws and regulations of the country for which the Goods are destined. We will not be liable for any breach of any such laws.

We accept no liability for any losses or damages incurred as a result of your Account details being shared by you.

Please be aware that purchases can only be cancelled until they are dispatched. In the event that an unauthorised purchase is dispatched prior to your notifying us of the unauthorised nature of the purchase, we accept no liability or responsibility and you should make contact with the carrier detailed in the Dispatch Email.

If purchases are cancelled for any reason prior to dispatch you will be refunded any monies paid in relation to those purchases.
If you terminate your Account any non-dispatched purchases will be cancelled and you will be refunded any monies paid in relation to those purchases.
Goods, Pricing and Availability
Whilst every effort has been made to ensure that all graphical representations and descriptions of Goods available from us correspond to the actual Goods, we are not responsible for any variations from these descriptions. This does not exclude our liability for mistakes due to negligence on our part and refers only to variations of the correct Goods, not different Goods altogether. Please refer to clause 16.1 for incorrect Goods.
Where appropriate, you may be required to select the required size, colour, number and other features of the Goods that you are purchasing.
We do not represent or warrant that such Goods will be available as stock indications are not provided on the Web Site.
The price of any Goods will be as quoted on our site from time to time, except in cases of obvious error.
These prices include VAT but exclude delivery costs, which will be added to the total amount due.
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 Email.
Our site contains a large number of Goods and it is always possible that, despite our best efforts, some of the Goods listed on our site may be incorrectly priced. We will normally verify prices as part of our dispatch procedures so that, where a Good's correct price is less than our stated price, we will charge the lower amount when dispatching the Goods to you. If a Good'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 Goods, or reject your order and notify you of such rejection. We are under no obligation to provide the Goods to you at the incorrect (lower) price, even after we have sent you a Dispatch Email, if the pricing error is obvious and unmistakeable and could have reasonably been recognised by you as a mis-pricing.
Payment for all Products must be by credit or debit card. We accept payment using 'Google Checkout' and 'PayPal'. We will not charge your credit or debit card until we despatch your order.
We shall assign an order number to your order and inform you of it in the confirmatory email. Please quote the order number in all subsequent correspondence with us.
You may within 5 calendar days of placing an order amend or cancel an order by providing us with written notice, with the exception where the order has been dispatched. If you amend or cancel an order, your liability to us shall be limited to payment to us of all costs we reasonably incur in fulfilling the order until we receive your amendment or cancellation, except that where the amendment or cancellation results from our failure to comply with these Terms and Conditions you shall have no liability to us for it.
We will notify you in the Dispatch Email when your goods are to be dispatched to you. The message will contain details of estimated delivery times or if no delivery date is specified, then within 7 days (mainland UK deliveries only) of the date of the Dispatch Email unless there are exceptional circumstances. Deliveries not to mainland UK addresses could take longer.
The Goods will be at your risk from the time of delivery.
Ownership of the Goods will only pass to you when we receive full payment of all sums due in respect of the Goods, including delivery charges.
If you receive Goods which do not match those that you ordered they will be accompanied by an explanatory note detailing the changes, stating reasons for the changes and setting out your options. If you do not wish to accept the Goods, you should contact us within 7 days. You will be given the option to have the Goods replaced with those ordered (if available) or to be refunded through the payment method used by you when purchasing the Goods. Refunds and replacements will be issued upon our receipt of the returned Goods in the same condition in which they were dispatched by us.
If any Goods you have purchased have faults when they are delivered to you, you should contact us within 7 days.
If Goods are damaged in transit and the damage is apparent on delivery, you should sign the delivery note to the effect that the Goods have been damaged. In any event, you should report such damage to us within 7 days.
Unless otherwise stated Goods returned must be in their original condition with all packaging and documentation. Upon receipt of any returned Goods, the price of the Goods, as paid by you and any reasonable shipping costs you incur, will be refunded to you through the payment method used by you when purchasing the Goods.
If any Goods develop faults within their manufacturer's warranty period, you may be entitled to a repair or replacement under the terms of that warranty.
You may cancel a contract at any time within seven working days, beginning on the day after you received the Goods. In this case, you will receive a full refund of the price paid for the Goods in accordance with our refunds policy.
To cancel a contract, you must inform us in writing. You must also return the Goods to us immediately, unworn, undamaged and preferably in the original packaging, and at your own cost and risk. You have a legal obligation to take reasonable care of the Goods while they are in your possession. If you fail to comply with this obligation, we may have a right of action against you for compensation.
Details of this statutory right, and an explanation of how to exercise it, are provided on the website. This provision does not affect your statutory rights.
If you wish to return Goods to us for any of the above reasons, please contact us at ‘email@example.com’ to make the appropriate arrangements.
We reserve the right to exercise discretion with respect to any returns under these Terms and Conditions. Factors which may be taken into account in the exercise of this discretion include, but are not limited to:
Any use or enjoyment that you may have already had out of the Goods;
Any characteristics of the Goods which may cause them to deteriorate or expire rapidly;
Any discounts that may have formed part of the purchase price of the Goods to reflect any lack of quality made known to you at the time of purchase.
Such discretion to be exercised only within the confines of the law.
If any Goods are returned, other than in accordance with clause 16.6, we will examine the Goods with regard to clause 16.10 and inspect their condition generally and will notify you of your refund via email. We will usually process the refund due to you as soon as possible and, in any case, within 30 days of the day we confirmed to you via email that you were entitled to a refund.
In addition to any warranties in these Terms and Conditions you also have legal rights in relation to Goods which are faulty or which otherwise do not conform with these Terms. Advice about your legal rights is available from your local Citizen's Advice Bureau or trading standards office.
