By accessing or using victoriastortontales.uk (‘our web site’) you agree to be legally bound by these terms and conditions as they may be modified and posted on our web site from time to time.

2. Nature of our web site
Our web site is a place for you to view, select and order products from Tormedia Publishing (the ‘Products’) and to make use of related services such as wish lists and downloads of material related to the Products. Our web site describes the Products in more detail.
3. Buying products on our web site
To order a product you will need to follow the ordering procedures set out on our order page. Details of our prices for the Products, and the procedures for payment and delivery are displayed on our web site.
Any times or dates stated on our web site for delivery are estimates only. Tormedia Publishing will make all reasonable effort to deliver goods within the time specified, but does not accept liability for any failure to deliver within that time.
You must pay by credit or debit card or send a cheque at the time of order. When paying by cheque your order will not be sent to you until your cheque payment has cleared. The price of any Product is the price in force at the date and time of your order. We may change the price of any Product before you place an order. We try to ensure that our prices displayed on our web site are accurate but the price on your order will need to be validated by us as part of the acceptance procedure (see clause 3.4 below). We will inform you if a Product’s correct price is higher than that stated in your order in which case you may cancel the order and decide whether or not to order the product at the correct price. We reserve the right to so inform you at any time prior to delivery and, notwithstanding any prior communication, no contract is formed until delivery.
Tormedia Publishing is entitled to refuse any order placed by you. We will acknowledge receipt of your order by email to the email address you have provided or verified to us while ordering. Any delay will be corresponded to you via email or telephone at our earliest convenience. Please note on some items made to special order delivery times may be extended and an approximate delivery time advised.
Payment will be taken on order of your goods using the card details provided with your order.
You undertake that all details you provide to us for the purpose of purchasing goods or services which may be offered by us on our web site will be correct, that the credit or debit card which you use is your own or that you have the cardholder’s permission to use it and that there are sufficient funds or credit facilities to cover the cost of any goods or services. We reserve the right to obtain validation of your credit or debit card details before providing you with any goods or services.
You may return any Products you have purchased within 14 working days of delivery for any reason (including if you simply change your mind). To do so you must notify us in writing or other durable medium (including email) within those 14 working days. You will then be entitled to a refund from us which will be paid as soon as possible but in any event within 30 days. You must keep any Products you intend to return to us in perfect condition while in your possession, must arrange for and pay the costs of returning the Products to Tormedia Publishing at the address in section 16 below and must take reasonable care to ensure that they are received by us undamaged. Alternatively, at your request, we will collect the Products from you, but the cost of this will be charged to you and we may deduct this from the refund. Any Products returned in a non-saleable condition will not be entitled to a refund.
If: (a) the Product delivered is not what you ordered (or is a Substitute Product), or does not correspond with its description; or (b) the Product delivered is not of a satisfactory quality Tormedia Publishing will, at its option, deliver to you a replacement Product or refund to you the price paid and your reasonable costs of returning the Product.
