Once you click on the “Continue to secure payment” button we shall treat the order as an offer by you to purchase the Products subject to these terms and conditions of sale. You are responsible for ensuring the accuracy of your order. After you place an order, you will receive an acknowledgement from us that we have received your order.

If we accept your offer we shall confirm each order on-line via the internet and by e-mail. We will send you an e-mail confirming that the order is processed and payment received (“Order Confirmation”). The contract between us (“the Contract”) will only be formed when we send the Order Confirmation to you.

All Products will be delivered to the delivery address that you indicate when you complete the Delivery Details section of your Order during the checkout process. Risk of damage to or loss of the Products shall pass to you at the time of delivery even if the Products have not been received by you in person.
Products will be dispatched with your National Art Pass or Gift National Art Pass. Free standard delivery is by Royal Mail second class service. Please allow ten working days for delivery. Express delivery is available at a cost of £6.95. Occasionally our delivery to you may be affected by a Force Majeure Event. See clause 8 for responsibilities when this happens.

To receive your goods for Christmas, orders for standard UK delivery must be placed by 9 December 2016. Orders for Express delivery must be placed by 22 December 2016. For overseas destinations, cut-off times vary, so please order by 1 December 2016.
Express delivery service means that you will receive your National Art Pass(es) within 2 working days from the date on which your application was submitted.
We shall confirm each order in writing by sending you a delivery note along with your Products.
Delivery shall be completed when we deliver the Products to the address you gave us when you placed the order and the Products will be your responsibility from that time.
You own the Products once we have received payment in full, including all applicable delivery charges.
If we miss the delivery deadline for any Products then you may cancel your order straight away if any of the following apply:
(a) we have refused to deliver the Products;
(b) delivery within the delivery deadline was essential (taking into account all the relevant circumstances); or
(c) you told us before we accepted your order that delivery within the delivery deadline was essential.
Alternatively and if you do not wish to cancel your order straight away, you can give us a new deadline for delivery, which must be reasonable, and you can cancel your order if we do not meet the new deadline.
If you do choose to cancel your order for late delivery, you can do so for just some of the Products or all of them. If the Products have been delivered to you, you will have to return them to us, and we will pay the costs of this. After you cancel your order we will refund any sums you have paid to us for the cancelled Products and their delivery.

8. Cancellation and Returns of Products
We hope the notebooks and/or tote bag you purchased (along with your National Art Pass) are absolutely perfect but if you are not totally satisfied with these, all you need to do is return them to us within seven days of receipt and we will either issue a refund or send you a replacement; the choice is yours.
Returning an item is very easy:
Call us on 020 7225 4800 or drop us a line at email@example.com to let us know you’ll be returning the item(s), so that we can keep an eye out for your parcel.
Return the items to: Art Fund, 2 Granary Square, King’s Cross, London, N1C 4BH
Please remember to include a note with your name and email address, and the details of whether you would like a refund or a replacement to be sent.
What happens next?
Once we receive your parcel, we will email you to let you know that it has arrived safely. We will then send you a replacement or issue the refund for the cost of the items within seven working days. If you cancel your Contract we will:
(a) refund you the price you paid for the Products. Please note that we are permitted by law to reduce your refund to reflect any reduction in the value of the Products, if this has been caused by your handling them in a way which would not be permitted in a shop; and
(b) refund any delivery costs you have paid, although, as permitted by law, the maximum refund will be the costs of delivery by the least expensive delivery method we offer; if you elected express delivery, the additional costs will not be refunded.
If a Product has been delivered to you before you decide to cancel your Contract (and provided you are still entitled to do so) you must return it to us without undue delay and in any event not later than 14 days after the day on which you let us know that you wish to cancel the Contract. You will be responsible for the cost of returning the Product to us, unless the Product is faulty. We strongly recommend that you either use recorded/signed for delivery or obtain a free certificate of posting from the Post Office as we are not responsible for your parcel until it has been received by us. Products lost in transit will not be treated as returned.
None of this affects your rights to claim for defective or faulty goods or workmanship under the Sale of Goods Act 1979 (as amended) or the Supply of Goods and Services Act 1982. However, in the case of faulty goods, the cancellation policy detailed above will not apply if the fault arises from, in our reasonable opinion, fair wear and tear, deliberate damage, accidental damage, negligence, abnormal working conditions, failure to follow manufacturer instructions, misuse or alteration or repair of the goods without manufacturer approval.
Art Fund Services will confirm any cancellation by email and will process the refund within seven days from receipt of your cancellation. In order to obtain the refund the Products must be returned to us at the following address: Supporter Services Art Fund , 2 Granary Square, King's Cross, London N1C 4BH.
9. Limitation of Liability
Art Fund Services’ liability to you under the contract for the Products is limited to refunding the price of the Products (including the delivery charges, if applicable) as provided for in Clause 8. Subscription fees for a National Art Pass are non-refundable once paid and a National Art Pass has been issued.
Art Fund Services is not responsible to you to any greater extent and in particular is not liable to you for any indirect or consequential loss (including, without limitation, financial loss such as loss of profit, or otherwise) that you may incur as a consequence of its failure to comply with these terms and conditions of sale.
For the avoidance of doubt, nothing in these terms and conditions of sale shall serve to exclude or limit our liability in respect of death or personal injury caused by our negligence or the negligence of our officers or employees.
We will not be liable or responsible for any failure to perform, or delay in performance of, any of our obligations under the Contract that is caused by events outside our reasonable control (a so-called “Force Majeure Event”). Our performance under any Contract is deemed to be suspended for the period that the Force Majeure Event continues and we will have an extension of time for performance for the duration of that period. We will use our reasonable endeavours to bring the Force Majeure Event to a close or to find a solution by which our obligations under the Contract may be performed despite the Force Majeure Event.
