Description of products

Whilst many component parts of our products are standard, all products available for purchase are described on their specific design page on our website. We always try to represent each design as accurately as possible via photography and copy points provided by designers, artists or photographers.

We have a policy of continuous product development so we can provide you with what we consider the best design combined with best performance, and thus reserve the right to amend the specifications of products, their price, packaging and any service associated at any time, without prior notice. Before ordering, we thus invite you to have a close look at the product description and design: we choose every design with great care in order to provide you with an exclusive limited edition humptie.

We use our best efforts to provide you with the best images and description, but unfortunately cannot guarantee that colours and details in website images are 100% accurate representations of the product. Therefore colour variations may occur from one print run to another.

Sales

If your order is delayed for any reason (manufacturing process, quality control issue, or other quality or manufacturing issues), we will notify you of the situation as soon as possible and advise you by email when you should expect delivery. Should for any reason the delay cause you to not wish to proceed, you may cancel your order and you will be reimbursed in full.

Prices

Prices are shown in a number of currencies and calculated on an ongoing basis by way of a recognized currency convertor XE.com (terms apply). Purchases made will be charged in Pounds Sterling(£). International credit card providers or banks will determine the actual exchange rate and may add an additional processing or administraton charge in relation to such payment which international card holders will be liable to pay.

All prices shown on the website for both products and delivery services are inclusive of any applicable UK VAT. This means that the total price you pay us for products, or delivery, is always the same, regardless of whether or not UK VAT is chargeable. Where delivery has been requested to an EU address, the price paid for the product and the delivery service will usually include UK VAT. Where delivery is made to a non-EU address, both the products and the delivery service will normally be zero-rated, with no UK VAT chargeable on either. However, the price paid for the products and delivery services will remain the same as shown on the website.

The price of delivery will be stated when you place your order.

The total purchase price including delivery charge will be displayed in your check out page prior to confirming your order.

Soon after receiving your order you will receive an e-mail from us confirming the details, description and price for the products ordered together with some information on your rights to return your goods. Payment of the total price plus delivery must be made in full before dispatch of your products.
