Terms & Conditions
This section of the UK Camera Club Ltd and trading names ukcameraclub.co.uk and UK Camera Club (“The Company”/”We”) website explains the terms and conditions that you are agreeing to when you use and/or shop from the Company's website. If you do not agree to these Terms you should not use or order from our website.
These Terms and Conditions do not affect your statutory rights.
1. Use of the Website
1.1 The www.ukcameraclub.co.uk website (“the Site”) is provided to you free of charge for your personal use subject to these Terms and Conditions. By using the Site you agree to be bound by these Terms and Conditions.
1.2 The materials on this Site are directed solely at customers who access this Site from the United Kingdom. The Company does not represent that any product referred to in the materials on this Site is appropriate for use, or available, outside the United Kingdom. Those who choose to access this Site from locations outside the United Kingdom are responsible for compliance with local laws if and to the extent local laws are applicable.
2. The Contract Between Us
2.1 Once we have received your order we will confirm that your order has been received by sending a confirmation e-mail to you at the e-mail address you provide on your order form. This e-mail is an acknowledgement of your order.
2.2 Your order is an offer to buy from us. We must receive payment of the whole of the price for the goods that you order from us (“the Item/Items”) including any delivery charge before your order can be processed. Nothing that we do or say will amount to any acceptance of that offer until we actually dispatch an Item to you, at which point a legally binding contract will be made between us. At any point up until then, we may decline to supply an Item to you. If we decline to supply an Item to you and you have already paid for it, we will give you a full refund of any amount already paid for that Item in accordance with our refund policy in Section 6 below. After your order has been dispatched, you cannot amend your order (but please see our Cancellation Policy in Section 5 below). Where Items are dispatched separately, our acceptance of the order in respect of each Item takes place when that item is dispatched.
2.2a Please note that your credit card will be charged directly at the moment of transaction.
2.3 All orders are subject to availability. If your order cannot be fulfilled, you will be offered an alternative or given a full refund. We accept payment by most major credit or debit cards through our secure system. All credit and debit card holders are subject to validation checks and authorised by the card issuer. If the issuer of your payment card refuses to authorise payment to us we will not be liable for any delay or non-delivery. We will tell you if your payment details cannot be authorised and may invite you to pay by another method. We also reserve the right to conduct further security checks if we deem this to be appropriate and necessary.
2.4 We reserve the right to refuse to sell an Item, if we feel that the product or the price for such product has been put on to the website in error.
2.5 If we do not have the exact stock item to send, we will, in certain circumstances, send an exact same functioning item, but from a different supplier. This does not affect your statutory rights. Items which are not in stock will be sent as soon as they become available to us and an expected delivery date will be sent by us to you, but this is an approximate time and not a binding agreement for delivery.
2.6 You undertake that all details you provide to us for the purpose of ordering or purchasing goods or services are correct, that the credit or debit card you are using is your own and that there are sufficient funds to cover the cost of the Item or Items ordered. You must choose a user name and password on completion of registration. You are responsible for all actions taken under that user name and password and shall only use the Site under your own user name and password. You must make every effort to keep your password safe and you should not disclose it to anyone. If it is compromised, you must change it. You may not transfer or sell your user name to anyone, nor permit, either directly or indirectly, anyone to use your user name or password. If there are any changes to the details supplied by you, it is your responsibility to inform us as soon as possible.
2.7 It is a crime to use a false name or a known invalid credit or debit card to order. Anyone caught wilfully entering into an erroneous or fictitious order will be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. We track the electronic “fingerprints” of every order placed on the Site to enable us and all legitimate crime prevention prosecution authorities to trace individual users engaging in criminal activities on the Site.
3. Descriptions, Prices and Product Information
3.1 We have taken care to describe and show Items as accurately as possible. Despite this, variation in Items may occur. If there is anything which you do not understand, or if you wish to obtain further information, please contact us by e-mail.
3.2 We take great care to ensure prices are accurate. All prices include VAT where appropriate. If, by mistake, we have under priced an Item, we will not be liable to supply that Item to you at the stated price, provided that we notify you before we dispatch the Item to you. In those circumstances, we will notify the correct price to you so that you can decide whether or not you wish to order the Item at that price. If you decide not to order the Item, we will give you a full refund on any amount already paid for that Item in accordance with our refund policy in Section 6 below.
3.3 All prices are expressed inclusive of any VAT payable unless otherwise stated.
3.4 The price of an Item does not include the delivery charge, which will depend on the delivery method you choose. The rate applicable for the delivery charge will be calculated at the date you place your order. For more information on delivery arrangements, see Section 4 below.
3.5 If for any reason we are unable to supply a particular Item, we will not be liable to you except to ensure that you are not charged for that Item.
3.6 To ensure availability of all our products, customers may be limited to a maximum number of Items.
3.7 The Company has made every effort to reproduce colours on the Site as accurately as possible. However, different computers reproduce colours in slightly different ways, and so exact colour matches are not possible over the Internet. This means that when you order products from the Site, colours may differ from what you see on the screen. If you are not satisfied with the colour of the Item you have ordered, please see our refund policy in Section 6 below.
3.8 The Company reserves the right to make a 10% restocking charge for any Items which are returned whether pursuant to Clauses 5 or 6 below or otherwise. The Company also reserves the right to make a charge if it has to collect Items from your premises. Your statutory rights are not affected.
4.1 Delivery will be made to the address specified when you complete your order. We use a variety of delivery methods, depending on the size of the Item you order and the speed with which you wish to receive it. Whilst we make every effort to deliver all your Items within 5 days of the date of your order, we shall not be liable if we fail to do so in part or in full due to circumstances beyond our control. We shall contact you to let you know if we are having any problems getting an Item to you within that time. Sometimes a signature is required at delivery. By placing an order you are authorising us to accept signature from another person on your behalf if you need to sign for an Item and you are not present at the time of delivery.
4.2 When an Item is delivered, risk of damage to or loss of the Item passes to you.
4.3 Free Delivery Offers are generally for the UK customers only, unless otherwise stated.
5. Cancellation of Order
5.1 You have the right to cancel your order up to 14 days following the receipt of an Item by contacting us on 0333 305 1950 or emailing email@example.com. If the Item(s) have not been dispatched, we will cancel the order and we will refund payment in accordance with our refund policy in Section 6 below. If the Item(s) have been dispatched to you and we are unable to stop the delivery, you can refuse to sign for the delivery so that the Item(s) are returned to us and we will refund in accordance with our refund policy in Section 6 below.
5.2 You cannot cancel your contract:
a) If you have used the Item(s);
b) If you have taken any software out of the sealed package in which it was delivered to you;
c) If the Item(s) are film, sensitised materials, developing or printing matter; or
d) If the Item(s) were made to your individual specification or personalised at your instruction.
6. Returns and Refunds
6.1a Non-faulty Items
You must within 30 days of receipt let us know by contacting us on 0333 305 1950 or at firstname.lastname@example.org if you wish to return an Item. You are required to take reasonable care of Items - this is a duty that you agree to. You are requested to return an item with its original packaging to ensure it is not damaged on the return journey to us. If you exercise your right to cancel your order after the goods have been dispatched, you will be responsible for returning the goods to UK Camera Club (within 14 days of notifying us) at your own risk and cost, therefore we strongly recommend you use an insured and tracked delivery method, such as Royal Mail Special Delivery. If you do not return an Item within 30 days of delivery, you will be deemed to have accepted the Item. We will issue a refund to you within 7 days of receiving the returned item.
6.1b *Our 30 day returns promise is subject to the goods being returned in "as new" and saleable condition in the original sealed box/packaging. We reserve the right to refuse your return or reduce your refund to reflect any reduction in the value of the Item if you have used the Item beyond normal handling or inspection. UK Camera Club do not sell products on a trial basis.
6.2 Faulty Items
We have found that many problems can be overcome by simply referring to the 'troubleshooting' section of your manual. If the goods still seem to be faulty please email us at email@example.com to discuss the fault.
If the fault has occurred within the first six months after delivery, you can request a repair or replacement of the faulty goods. However, we reserve the right to choose a solution when the choice of the customer is disproportionate or impossible to fulfil. In the majority of cases, it is likely that we will elect to send an item for repair in the first instance. If the repair is unsuccessful, you can then claim a replacement or a full refund.
After six months, where you can demonstrate that the fault was present at the point of original sale, you can still request a repair or replacement and we will deal with this request in the same way as set out above.
In all cases, we reserve the right to inspect the product and verify the fault. If no fault is found, the product will be returned to you.
6.2.1 All cameras and lenses are sold with 24 Month Warranties. If you have any problems with your purchase in this time and would like to submit a warranty claim please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to ensure that the dialogue is in writing. If we arrange for an Item to be repaired, please also send a copy of the invoice which accompanied delivery. Failure to show that you have purchased the Item from us may result in the repair becoming chargeable. If a repair is chargeable, we will tell you in advance. Repair turnaround time is dependent on the relevant manufacturer’s current workload. We will not accept any claims for losses you suffer during this time.
6.2.2 If a fault is caused by accident, misuse or negligence, or it occurs outside the warranty period, the Company shall not be liable and it will not be covered by the manufacturer’s warranty. Service estimates for an Item not covered by the manufacturer’s warranty will be chargeable to you. An estimate will be e-mailed (or sent to you by post if we do not have an e-mail address for you) and confirmation of acceptance is required within 10 days. Where such acceptance is not received, the Item will be returned not repaired and a charge may be payable.
