Terms & Conditions
The terms “we”, “our”, “us” and “The Serpents Lair” throughout these Terms & Conditions refer to The Serpents Lair Limited.
This site is owned and operated by The Serpents Lair Limited. All rights to (and in) this website are owned by us. Any unauthorised use, copying or modification is prohibited. On purchasing goods for sale from our website serpentslair.co.uk your contract is with The Serpents Lair Limited, and these terms and conditions therefore apply.
Material on this website is directed at viewers over the age of 18 in the United Kingdom (UK). We make no representations with regard to any of the material in relation to other countries or states. Those accessing this website from locations outside the UK are responsible for compliance with their local laws and customs. The contract between us shall be governed by and interpreted in accordance with Scottish law and the Scottish courts shall have jurisdiction to resolve any dispute between us.
PRODUCT DESCRIPTION AND PRICING
All information including prices are correct at time of publishing and include VAT at the current rate applicable in the UK. Customers outside the UK are not entitled to any discount or refund to account for the differences in VAT or local taxes.
Every reasonable care has been taken to ensure that product descriptions and the colours shown are accurate. However, all measurements quoted are approximate and the reproduction of colours is as accurate as the photographic processes and your viewing screen or system will allow.
Any product specification changes made by suppliers are outside our control. If the changes to the product are such as to be considered minor or within the norms of manufacture (for example modifications and product design updates that have no bearing on the products performance, or changes to stitching, logos or trim detail that does not change the overall look or finish of the product) it will not be considered to be a replacement or substitute product. However, if deemed unsatisfactory, you have the right to return the product(s) as indicated in the CANCELLATION section of these TERMS & CONDITIONS.
We endeavour keep our website up to date, however occasionally content may include errors or mistakes. We reserve the right to withdraw any offers, promotions or products from sale which have been incorrectly displayed or priced on the website, or correct the price with immediate effect. We will not accept an order if there is a pricing or promotional error. If this occurs on your order we will contact you with the correct pricing or promotional details. If you decide not to go ahead with the order at the new price, or we don't hear from you within 7 days, we will automatically cancel the order for goods and refund the payment card you used when placing the order.
We reserve the right to withdraw any offers, discounts and promotions without prior notice. Promotions where an item is to be supplied free, unless otherwise stated, the cheapest priced item is always the one considered to be free.
Promotional codes which enable customers to obtain discounts or offers are non-transferable and may only be used by the person to whom they are issued. Any voucher or promotional codes will only be accepted on orders from the customer to whom they were issued, and have no monetary or redeemable value for any other purpose.
Promotions and Promotional codes offered on the website and in marketing material are subject to the Terms and Conditions as set out on these pages and are also subject to additional Terms and Conditions which can be viewed by following this link: Additional Promotional Terms and Conditions
All goods must be paid for at the point of ordering, including the cost of post and packaging as applicable. We use Amazon to securely process your card payment. Our stock system is live and normally we only accept orders for products we have in stock at the warehouse. However all products are subject to availability and in the unlikely event that we are unable to supply a product, we will inform you of this as soon as possible. A full refund will be given if you have already paid for the product(s).
Please ensure the delivery address details you provide are correct. Orders with incorrect Post Codes or address details may be delayed or non deliverable and if so we accept no liability for any resulting delay or loss. We cannot accept orders for delivery to a PO Box address as a signature may be required at the point of delivery. Orders received before 12.00 (noon) Monday to Friday are normally processed and dispatched on the same day or the next working day (excluding weekends and Bank Holidays). Products with an item number starting "DD" are dispatched directly to you from our supplier or manufacturer, normally within 2 working days. If for any reason normal shipping dispatch times are altered or suspended due to holidays or temporary warehouse closure, a message will be clearly posted on the site informing customers. Delivery will be made as soon as possible after dispatch of your order and in any event within 28 days of your order. Please click here for full details of delivery/shipping and charges.
The Serpents Lair Limited has no liability for any delay or failure to deliver your parcel due to circumstances beyond our reasonable control. For orders to addresses outside the UK it is your responsibility to ascertain as to whether the items are considered legally importable and to pay any additional importation costs that may be payable.
You may cancel your order up to 7 working days, starting from the day after the products were received (excluding Saturdays, Sundays and Bank Holidays) in line with the Consumer Protection (Distance Selling) Regulations 2000. You need to inform us in writing that you wish to exercise this right within the 7 working days, starting the day after you received the goods. On written notification that you are cancelling your contract any monies debited to us from your payment card will be re-credited to you within 30 days of your order, providing the goods are returned in an acceptable unworn condition within that time. Please be aware that due to the intimate nature of underwear and swimwear products you cannot cancel the contract if you have worn or washed the product, unless it is faulty. Please see the RETURNS section of this website for full instructions concerning returning products to The Serpents Lair Limited
