Terms & Conditions – Northern Bees
These terms describe your relationship with us and your use of our website. They are legally binding, and you accept and agree to them by using this website. These terms change from time to time, so please read them carefully each time you use this website. Your attention is drawn to the section below entitled ‘Restrictions on our liability’, as it restricts our liability to you – even if we are negligent. Your statutory rights as an individual buying something which is not for use in a business are not affected by these terms.
English is the only language used on this website.
In these terms:
- ‘us’ and ‘we’ mean D B Engineering (Ripon) Ltd.
- ‘including’ and ‘in particular’ are used to illustrate particular examples, but they do not limit the scope of these terms in any way.
- ‘loss’ means any loss or damage of any kind. It includes: (i) associated costs and expenses incurred in connection with any loss or damage or any related claim or legal proceedings, and (ii) compensation paid to third parties.
You: You confirm that:
- you are accessing our website from within the United Kingdom
- you are over 18 years of age
- you are using your own payment card
- you are resident in the UK at the delivery address you give in the order form. If any of these are not true, you will compensate us in full for any loss we suffer as a result.
This website includes information which we have sourced from third parties and which we make available free of charge. We have taken reasonable care when selecting those third parties, but we have no control over the information itself and we do not accept any responsibility for its accuracy.
The pictures on this website are for illustrative purposes only, and the items delivered may be different in detail. For example, they may be a different colour. Some items may not be available, in which case we may substitute an appropriate alternative. We may change our prices at any time, although this will not affect any orders we have already accepted.
You may only order items by adding them to your electronic ‘basket’ and then proceeding through the electronic ‘checkout’. Further instructions will appear at each stage, and any charges you will have to pay will be clearly identified. Your order will be acknowledged when you submit it, but this does not mean that we have accepted it. Each item in your order constitutes a separate order. If we accept your order for all or any of the items, we will send you a further e-mail saying so. If we accept your order there is a legally binding contract between you and us. It consists of
- the information on this website
- these terms
- your order our
- e-mail acknowledging your order
- our e-mail accepting your order
It does not include anything else. Nothing on this website amounts to an offer to supply any items, and we are not obliged to sell you anything until we accept your order. We may decline to accept any order, or any part of an order, without giving any reason. You may be required to help us verify your age before we accept your order for certain items.
You must pay when ordering. You may pay for most items using most widely accepted credit or debit cards. Payment in connection with this website is subject to the general account terms.
We try to deliver all items within 2 to 3 working days (ie excluding Saturdays, Sundays and Bank Holidays), but longer delivery times apply to some items and this will be stated where this applies. We will try to deliver items the next working day if you select ‘express delivery’. We may deliver the items we have agreed to supply at different times. We usually deliver by courier. We only deliver items to addresses within Mainland UK. We reserve the right to deliver them only to the address identified with the card or account you have used to pay. Our obligation to deliver the items is fulfilled when someone first tries to deliver them at the address you have specified in your order. You must report any errors or damage which are apparent at the time of delivery to the carrier. For more information about delivery charges please see The Delivery Information Page.
You may cancel your purchase within the cancellation period without having to give any reason, and we will refund the full price of the item (and all VAT and delivery charges associated with that item) to the card or account you used to place your order. The cancellation period begins the day after you have received the item concerned and lasts for 7 working days. To cancel, you must notify us by telephone, letter, e-mail or fax. If you do cancel your purchase, you must return the unwanted item to us. Unless the item concerned is one we substituted for the item you ordered, you must return at your own expense and if you require us to collect it from you we will charge you for the costs involved. You must take reasonable care of the item until it is returned to us, and we may charge you for any damage if you do not.
We may cancel your order for an item at any time before it is delivered to the delivery address if we have made a mistake in the price for that item quoted on this website and a reasonable person would have realised that we had made such a mistake – such as where the price quoted is unusually low and it is not clear from the accompanying message that this was intended. If we cancel your order, we will refund the full price of the item (and all VAT and delivery charges associated with that item) to the card or account you used to place your order, but we do not have any further liability for cancelling.
All orders awaiting in store pick up must be collected within 14 days or the order will be cancelled.
