Your status

Consumer Rights

If you are contracting as a consumer, you may cancel a Contract at any time within 7 working days, beginning on the day after you received the Products. Provided you comply with this clause and the Returns Policy (clause 11), and take reasonable care of the Products, you will receive a full refund of the price paid for the Products in accordance with our returns policy (set out in clause 11 below).

To cancel a Contract, you must inform us either by writing to us at Carp Gear t/a Bruces Bait and Tackle, Unit D Northfield Point, Cunliffe Drive, Kettering, Northants. NN16 9QJ... or by sending an email to sales@carpgear.co.uk.

If the Products have been processed for delivery or have been delivered at the time you notify us of your wish to cancel the Contract, then the Products must be returned to us at your own cost and risk. We will arrange for the Products to be collected from you either by us or by a third party and will make a charge for providing this service.

You have a legal obligation to take reasonable care of the Products while they are in your possession. If you fail to comply with this obligation, we may have a right of action against you for compensation.

Ordering Products

After placing an order, you may receive an email from us acknowledging that we have safely received it. This does not mean that your order has been accepted. All orders are subject to acceptance by us, and we will send you an email to confirm acceptance. The contract between us will only be made when we send you the email confirming acceptance of your order and we have taken payment.

Availability

All items are subject to stock availability. We will inform you as soon as possible if, for any reason, the Products you have ordered are not available. Please note that, on rare occasions, stock may become unavailable after we have accepted your order. In such circumstances, we may need to cancel the Contract with you. In such circumstances, if we have taken payment from your credit card or debit card we will refund the amount paid by you in full and we will not have any other liability towards you.

Ordering Errors

You are able to make changes to your order up to the point at which you click on the 'submit order' button on the Payment & Confirm section of the checkout process.

Prices

The price of the Products will be as quoted on the Carp Gear website, except in cases of obvious error. Please be aware that these prices exclude delivery costs.

Due to the large number of Products on the Carp Gear website, it is always possible that some of the Products listed on our site may be incorrectly priced, despite our best efforts. We will normally verify prices as part of our order-handling procedure so that, where a Product's correct price is less than our stated price, we will charge the lower amount when dispatching the Product to you. If the Product's correct price is higher than the price stated on our site, we will normally, at our discretion, either contact you for instructions before dispatching the Product, or reject your order and notify you of the rejection. We are under no obligation to provide the Product to you at the incorrect (lower) price, even after we have sent you an order acceptance, if the pricing error is obvious and unmistakeable and could have reasonably been recognised by you as a mis-pricing.

Payment

We accept payment with credit or debit cards via PayPal, cash, cheques, gift vouchers. By submitting an order to us through the Carp Gear website, you are confirming that the payment details provided on your order are valid and correct. We will process your credit or debit card details immediately after you place your order.

Please note that delivery of the Products to you is conditional upon payment first having been made in full.

Delivery

We aim to fulfill all orders within 28 days of acceptance. However, if you are located in a remote area, delivery may take a little longer.

When you have chosen the Products you want to buy from us, the delivery address will default automatically to the billing address you have entered for your payment card. If you want us to deliver your order to a different address, you can choose this option as you go through the checkout process. Although we will make every reasonable effort to ensure your Products are delivered within the timescales given above, unfortunately we cannot guarantee that they will not be affected by unforeseen issues affecting our delivery partners. Under these circumstances, delivery charges will not normally be refunded.

Returns Policy

If you have cancelled the Contract in accordance with clause 4 above and the Products have been processed for delivery or have been delivered to you then we will arrange for the Products to be collected from you. Following the collection of the Products from you, we will check that you have taken reasonable care of the Products. Subject to our being satisfied that you have taken reasonable care of the Products, we will process the refund to you as soon as possible, and, in any case, within 30 days following the day on which you have given notice of your cancellation of the Contract. In these circumstances, we will refund the price of Products in full, including the cost of sending the item to you. However, we will deduct a collection charge of 50 pounds from the amount due to you.

If you have cancelled the Contract in accordance with clause 4 above and the Products have not been processed for delivery, then we will process the refund due to you as soon as possible and, in any case, within 30 days follows the day on which you gave us notice of cancellation of the Contract. If you cancel the Contract for any other reason (for example, if you think the Products are defective or they do not match their description), we will collect the Products from you and examine the returned Products. We will notify you of our decision regarding a refund within a reasonable period of time. We will usually process any refund due to you as soon as possible and, in any case, within 30 days of the day we confirmed to you via e-mail that you were entitled to a refund. Products returned to us because of a defect will be refunded in full, including a refund of the delivery charges for sending Products to you and any charge we may have levied for the collection of the Products. In all cases, please ensure that the despatch note is returned with the Products as proof of purchase. We recommend that you take a copy for your own records.

We will refund you using the same method you used to pay for the Products.

Unfortunately we cannot stop an order once it's been confirmed by us. If you change your mind about your order after this point you can return the Products to us in accordance with this returns policy.

This returns policy does not affect your statutory rights in respect of defective Products.

Title and Risk

The Products will be at your risk from the time of delivery even if you have given us notice that you wish to cancel the Contract. Ownership of the Products will only pass to you at the time of delivery or (if later) when we receive full payment of all sums due in respect of the Products, including any delivery charges.

Your Information

We process information about you in accordance with our privacy policy. By using our site, you consent to such processing.

14. Our Liability

In the event of a fault in our Products (including a defect or a Product not matching its description) notified to us within a reasonable time after delivery we will (subject to confirmation of the fault and provided that the Products have been treated by you in accordance with the manufacturers guidelines and care instructions), exchange the Products or refund you in full (including any delivery and collection charges) but we shall not have any other liability towards you.
