Terms & Conditions

Last updated 20/05/2024

 

Only Frets Terms & Conditions:

At Only Frets our aim is to  help all consumers.

We’ve kept our Terms and Conditions as clear as possible, and give you all the information we can about your online or in-store transactions so that you completely understand the whole process, from order to delivery and beyond. It’s really important to us that your online/telesales shopping experience meets expectations, so please spend a few minutes and read on. You’ll need to accept our T’s & C’s every time you make a purchase – they might change from time to time, so do check the date at the top of the page.


Our contract after you have ordered:
Firstly, don’t panic if you make any mistakes during your order, you can correct any input errors right up until you confirm payment. Once you’re happy everything is correct and you’ve submitted an order you’ll be given an Order Reference Number and details of the products (and/or services) you have ordered. You’ll then receive an email headed ‘Order Acknowledgement’ recognising receipt of your order. We will then send a further email headed ‘Order Confirmation’. This second email also lets you know how your products will be delivered to you. If we have to cancel all or part of your order for any reason, we will email you to let you know.

If you have placed an order by telephone and you don't have an email address, we'll give you the Order Reference Number over the phone and post you a copy of your receipt.

We take all reasonable steps to ensure all details, descriptions and prices of products and services are correct at the time the information was entered onto the system. Sometimes we have to hold our hands up and admit we have made a mistake by unintentionally publishing inaccurate information on the site (e.g. the price, description or availability of a product you have ordered). In this instance we may have to cancel your order at any time, even if you have received your Order Confirmation email, and you will receive a full refund of any charges already paid.

If you choose our Collect In Store service you will be given a reference number and details of your order. You will be asked to pay online and provide a copy of the confirmation email at the time of collection.


Prices and payments
We are based in the UK and all our prices are in UK pounds. The total cost of your order will be the price of the products you order and the delivery charge (if any). This will be clearly laid out in your Shopping Basket before you submit an order. Payment is deducted once an order is submitted.

When deciding whether to accept your order we may use certain information about you, including any received from our accredited identity verification partner. For example, we may pass on your details for them to check against certain public and private databases. This will help to protect you and us from fraudulent activities.


If we identify a transaction as being potentially fraudulent we may ask our courier to return the goods to our warehouse, we may cancel your order even though you will have received the Order Confirmation email.

Restrictions - age requirements and limits on orders
Some of our products have a minimum age requirement and by ordering you are confirming that you are of the required age. Your age may be checked using an approved age verification service.

Some additional products also carry a maximum product limit per customer in a 90 day period.
Where these product restrictions apply the relevant products will be highlighted on the product display page.


Delivery
You’ll find all the finer details about our delivery (including where we deliver to) here.

Missing, damaged or incorrect orders
We want you to be absolutely satisfied with your product and would recommend that, where practicable, you unpack and check it for damage as soon as it arrives. If you receive a damaged product please contact us as soon as the damage is discovered via our email address at info@onlyfrets.com

We do everything we can to ensure your order arrives at your door complete and in pristine condition. If you don’t receive all your products at once, you can check that they have been dispatched using our tracking facility detailed in the confirmation email. If it’s not on its way, you can chat now to one of our helpful colleagues using our email address. In the unlikely event that the product is faulty, please follow the instructions in the delivery documents.


Returns and after sales policy
If you purchased online, you can return your item within 30 days even if you have opened it for inspection. It must be returned as new and where possible, in its original packaging. If you purchased in store, you can return your item within 30 days in its unopened and sealed packaging along with proof of purchase (excludes paint).

Following The Consumer Contracts (Information, Cancellation and Additional Charges) Regulations, we will accept items back even if you have opened the goods to inspect them. You are entitled to a refund as long as you inform us of your decision to cancel within 14 calendar days from the day after delivery of the goods. You can examine the goods as you would in a shop but to obtain a full refund you must not start using them, install them or input any data/software. The goods must be in an ‘as new’ condition and returned in the original, undamaged packaging, along with any accessories and free gifts received with them.

Once we have received the goods back from you, we will give you a refund for the cost of the product plus the delivery charge paid (except for the additional costs arising if you selected a type of delivery other than the least expensive type of standard delivery offered by us).

We may make a deduction from the refund for any loss in value of the goods if the loss is a result of any unnecessary handling by you.

Refunds can take up to 10 days to be credited to your payment card once we’ve received your returned item.

We cannot refund/cancel your purchase if
•    You return your product to a store without proof of purchase
•    There is a contract for services with the product and you have started using the services; this would include, for example, any subscriptions.

However, if you purchase digital content and agree and consent to the immediate performance of the contract, you will not be able to ask for a refund.
