YOUR RIGHT OF CANCELLATION

NOTE: This clause 7 only applies if you are a consumer and if you are a UK or European Community citizen. If you are purchasing Products from outside of the European Community please see clause 8 below.

7.1 You have a legal right to cancel a Contract during the period set out below in clause 7.3. This means that during the relevant period if you change your mind or for any other reason you decide you do not want to keep a Product or Products, you can notify us of your decision to cancel the Contract and receive a refund. If you are a UK citizen, advice about your legal right to cancel the Contract is available from your local Citizens’ Advice Bureau or Trading Standards office.

7.2 However, this cancellation right does not apply in the case of any made-to-measure or custom-made products and/or products made to your specification or clearly personalised.

7.3 Your legal right to cancel a Contract starts from the date of the order confirmation, which is when the Contract between us is formed. If the Products have already been delivered to you, you have a period of 7 (seven) working days in which you may cancel, starting from the day after you receive the Product. Working days means that Saturdays, Sundays and public holidays are not included in this period.

7.4 To cancel a Contract, please contact us in writing to tell us by sending an e-mail headed ‘Notice of Contract Cancellation’ to enquiries@beaumontshoes.com. You may wish to keep a copy of your cancellation notification for your own records. When you send us your cancellation notice by e-mail, your cancellation will become effective from the date you sent us the e-mail.

7.5 [If you refuse delivery or if for any other reason delivery of the Product does not occur then the Product will be returned to us by our shipper and we shall assume unless you advise us to the contrary that you have cancelled the Contract.]

7.6 In the UK returns are free, outside of the UK please note that you must cover the cost of the return shipment, as our returns policy does not apply to orders cancelled under the Distance Selling Regulations. The cost to return will be equal to the original delivery cost and will be deducted from your refund. This is also stated in our Returns & Refunds section. We do not refund the original delivery cost.

7.7 Please use the Returns Label we will provide for you. Otherwise we recommend that you insure the return shipment as you are under a duty to take reasonable care of the Product(s) and will be liable for damage to the product(s) until we actually receive them at our warehouse. We also recommend that you use a secure, trackable means to return your order to us. Product(s) that are the subject of cancellation must be shipped Beaumont Shoes 73 Hurst Road Ashford, Kent TN24 9RS, United Kingdom. You should retain proof of sending, in case of a dispute.

7.8 Product(s) should be returned to us with their original packaging and footwear must be tried on carpeted surfaces only. Product(s) must be unused, unworn and in an unaltered condition. Product(s) must be sent from the country that the order was delivered to.

7.9 Subject to compliance with clause 7.8 above, we will refund the full value of your order, including shipping costs if within the UK, within 30 days of receiving your notice of contract cancellation. Outside of the UK, we will only refund the cost of the product, not the delivery cost, and the return shipping cost will also be deducted from your refund. The return shipping cost will be equal to the original delivery cost.

7.10 Please note you may only use your right to cancel the order under the DSR’s if you give us formal written notice of cancellation any time after your order has been placed, up until 7 working days from the day after you received you order, as described above in Clause 7.4.

PRICE OF PRODUCTS AND VAT CHARGES

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.

8.3 Sales made to customers outside of the EU are dealt with in clause 9 below.

INTERNATIONAL SALES AND DELIVERY

9.1 We ship DDU (delivery duty unpaid) to certain destinations outside the EU. Product prices displayed on our website are inclusive of UK VAT. If you are not liable to pay VAT, this will be removed at checkout. As the recipient, you are liable for all import duties, customs and local sales taxes levied by the country you are shipping to; payment of these is necessary to release your order from customs on arrival.
