6.1 All Products are delivered by private courier, Fedex or Royal Mail and must be signed for by you, or the person that you have told us will accept delivery on your behalf. The individual accepting delivery may also be required to provide proof of identification in order to receive the Products. It is your responsibility to check, or ensure the person you nominate to accept delivery has checked, that the parcel containing your Products has not been tampered with in any way before accepting delivery.
6.2 The time for delivery will depend on how long it will take us to obtain the materials required to manufacture your Product, or if applicable, whether we already have the Product in stock. We will contact you (usually by e-mail) with a delivery date no later than when your Products are dispatched.
6.3 For delivery to destinations in the UK, delivery for Products made to order will usually take place within 6 to 8 weeks after the date on which the Contract has been formed or we have received your payment (whichever is later). However, if we already have the Product in stock, then the estimated delivery time for destinations in the UK will be shorter than this and you will usually receive your Product:
6.4 Please note that delivery to destinations outside the UK may take longer. Occasionally our delivery may be affected by an Event Outside Our Control (see clause 14 for our responsibilities when this happens).
6.5 If you (or the person you have nominated to accept delivery) are not available at the delivery address to take delivery on the delivery date we have notified to you:
(a) (due to their high value) the Products will be returned to us (at our cost) and you will need to contact us to rearrange delivery; and
(b) you may be charged for any delivery costs that we incur in respect of further attempts to deliver the Products to you.
6.7 Please note we cannot guarantee delivery by a specific date within the estimated delivery period (even if you notify us of any such request when placing your order).
This section only applies if you would like your Products to be delivered to a destination outside of the UK.
7.1 If you would like us to deliver your Products to a destination outside the UK, please contact us using the contact details set out in clause 17.3 before placing your order. We will try to accommodate any such request, but we reserve the right, at our discretion, to decline any such request made or order received.
7.2 If you order Products from us for delivery to a destination outside the UK:
(a) please note that additional delivery charges may apply (see clause 8.2 for further information);
(b) the time for delivery may be longer than that set out in clause 6.2. We will provide you with an estimated time for delivery when you contact us pursuant to clause 7.1 or we contact you;
(c) your order may be subject to import duties and taxes which are applied when the delivery reaches that destination. Please note that we have no control over these charges and we cannot predict their amount;
(d) you will be solely responsible for payment of any such import duties and taxes referenced in clause 7.2(c) above. Please contact your local customs office for further information before placing your order. We will not be liable or responsible if you do not pay any such import duties or taxes;
(e) you must comply with all applicable laws and regulations of the country for which the Products are destined. We will not be liable or responsible if you do not comply with any such law; and
(f) if you return any Products to us from a destination outside the UK, you must ensure that the return parcel is marked clearly with the wording “Return to supplier” or wording having similar effect.
7.3 Nothing in these Terms shall affect your rights as a consumer under the applicable law in the jurisdiction in which you are resident.
8.1 Subject to clause 8.6,the price of the Products will be:
(a) in respect of orders placed through our site, the price quoted on our site at the time you submit your order (subject to clause 8.2 for Products to be delivered outside of the UK); or
(b) in respect of all other orders, the price set out in the order form issued by us.
8.2 For Products to be delivered to destinations in the UK, the price includes delivery charges. If you would like your Products to be delivered to a destination outside of the UK, please contact us in accordance with clause 7.1 and we will notify you whether any additional delivery charges will apply and the method(s) by which you may place your order.
8.3 All prices are shown in pounds sterling. The price of a Product includes VAT (where chargeable) at the applicable current rate chargeable in the UK for the time being. However, if the rate of VAT changes between the date of your order and the date of delivery, we will adjust the VAT you pay and notify you of this change, unless you have already paid for the Products in full before the change in VAT takes effect.
8.4 Prices for our Products may change from time to time (including where the prices of the materials required to make our Products fluctuate), but changes will not affect any order you have already placed and that we have accepted.
8.5 We take all reasonable care to ensure that the prices of Products are correct at the time they are quoted to you, however please see clause 8.6 for what happens if we discover an error in the price of Product(s) you ordered.
8.6 It is always possible that, despite our reasonable efforts, some of our Products may be incorrectly priced. We will normally check prices before accepting your order so that:
(a) where the Product’s correct price is less than the price we stated on our site or in the order form issued by us (as applicable), we will charge the lower amount when we take payment; and
(b) if the Product’s correct price is higher that the price stated on our site or in the order form issued by us (as applicable), we will contact you as soon as possible to inform you of this error and we will give you the option of continuing to purchase the Product at the correct higher price or cancelling your order. We will not process your order until we have your instructions. If we are unable to contact you using the contact details you provided during the order process, we will treat the order as cancelled and notify you in writing.
However, if the Product’s correct price is higher that the price stated on our site or in the order form issued by us (as applicable) and we mistakenly accept and process your order where such a pricing error is obvious and unmistakeable and could reasonably have been recognised by you as a mispricing, we may cancel a supply of the Product and refund you any sums you have paid.
(a) for orders placed through our site: debit card or credit card;
(b) for orders placed over the telephone or by e-mail: bank transfer or debit or credit card; and
(c) for orders placed at events held at your property or at a third party’s premises: bank transfer or debit or credit card.
9.2 For debit and credit card payments, we only accept Visa and Mastercard. We do not accept payments by PayPal.
9.3 Payment for the Products and all applicable delivery charges is in advance before delivery. We will take payment as follows:
(a) if you place your order through our site, we will take payment from your debit or credit card when you submit your order through our site;
(b) if you place your order by another means:
(i) and elect to pay by debit or credit card, we will take payment from your card immediately after we confirm your order by sending you an order form; or
(ii) and elect to pay by bank transfer, you must effect the transfer within 48 hours of receiving the order form and payment will be deemed to have been made when we receive the full amount due in our account in cleared funds. If you wish to pay by bank transfer, please let us know and we will provide our bank account details to you.
We reserve the right to cancel your Contract if you fail to make payment in full by the relevant time set out above.
10.1 If you are a consumer in the EEA, you have a legal right to cancel a Contract, subject to clause 10.2, during the period set out below in clause 10.3. This means that during the relevant period if you change your mind or decide for any other reason that you do not want to receive or keep a Product, you can notify us of your decision to cancel the Contract and receive a refund. Advice about your legal right to cancel the Contract is available from your local Citizens’ Advice Bureau, Trading Standards office or equivalent consumer protection organisation in your jurisdiction.
10.2 The cancellation right provided for in this clause 10 does not apply to Products:
(a) that are made to order to your specification;
(b) that are clearly personalised;
(c) for which the price is dependant on fluctuations in the financial market which we cannot control and which may occur within the cancellation period set out in clause 10.3; or
(d) that are sealed and are not suitable for return due to hygiene reasons if they become unsealed after delivery (for example jewellery for piercings).
Please note that many of our Products are likely to fall within one or more of these exceptions.
10.3 Your legal right to cancel a Contract starts from the date on which we confirm our acceptance of your order, which is when the Contract between us is formed. Your deadline for cancelling the Contract then depends on what you have ordered and how it is delivered, as set out in the table below:
|Your Contract||End of cancellation period|
|Your Contract is for a single Product (which is not delivered in instalments on separate days).||The end date is the end of 14 days after the day on which you receive the Product.
Example: if we confirm acceptance of your order on 1 January and you receive the Product on 10 February you may cancel at any time between 1 January and the end of the day on 24 February.
|Your Contract is for multiple Products which may be delivered on separate days.||The end date is 14 days after the day on which you receive the last of the separate Products ordered.
Example: if we confirm acceptance of your order on 1 January and you receive the first of your separate Products on 10 February and the last instalment or last separate Product on 14 February you may cancel in respect of all instalments and any or all of the separate Products at any time between 1 January and the end of the day on 28 February.
10.4 To cancel a Contract under this clause 10, you just need to let us know that you have decided to cancel within the relevant timescale set out in clause 10.3. The easiest way to inform us of your decision to cancel your Contract is by e-mailing us at VIPservice@shen.london or by calling us at 0203 633 0633. You may use a copy of the cancellation form available on our site, but you are not required to do so. If you are e-mailing or writing to us, please include details of your order to help us identify it. If you send us your cancellation notice by email or post, then your cancellation is effective from the date you send us the e-mail or post the letter to us. For example, you will have given us notice in time as long as you get your letter into the last post on the last day of the cancellation period or e-mail us before midnight on that day.
10.5 If you cancel your Contract under this clause 10 we will:
(a) refund you the price you paid for the Products. However, please note that all returned Products will be subject to the checks set out in clause 10.8 and we are permitted by applicable law to reduce your refund to reflect any reduction in the value of the Products, if this has been caused by your handling them in a way which would not be permitted in a shop (please note that Products returned further to cancellation under this clause 10 should not show any signs of wear and all security tags must show no signs of tampering or removal). If we refund you the full price paid before we are able to inspect the Products and later discover you have handled them in an unacceptable way, you must pay us an appropriate amount; and
(b) refund any delivery charges you have paid, although, as permitted by law, the maximum refund will be the costs of delivery by the least expensive delivery method we offer (provided that this is a common and generally accepted method); and
(c) make any refunds due to you as soon as possible and in any event within the deadlines indicated below:
(i) if you have received the Products, 14 days after the day on which we receive the Products back from you or, if earlier, the day on which you provide us with evidence that you have sent the Products back to us. For information about how to return Products to us, see clause 10.7; or

(b) if you paid by bank transfer, by bank transfer to the account from which your transfer was made.
In any event, you will not incur any fees as a result of the refund. We may withhold reimbursement until we have received the Products back or you have supplied evidence of having sent back the Products, whichever is the earliest (see clause 10.5(c)).
10.7 If the Products have been delivered to you before you decide to cancel your Contract:
(a) then you must either:
(i) return them to us without undue delay and in any event not later than 14 days after the day on which you let us know that you wish to cancel the Contract.

(ii) allow us to collect them from you. Please call us on 0203 633 0633 or email us at VIPservice@shen.london to arrange collection. Unless the Products are faulty or not as described (in this case see clause 11), we will charge you the direct cost of collection we incur.

18.5 If we fail to insist that you perform any of your obligations under these Terms, or if we do not enforce our rights against you, or if we delay in doing so, that will not mean that we have waived our rights against you and will not mean that you do not have to comply with those obligations.
