These Terms and Conditions govern your use of the website (“Site”) and your relationship with us (“Shores of Africa”, “we” or “us” or “our”). Please read them carefully as they affect your rights and liabilities under the law. If you do not agree to these Terms and Conditions, please do not register for or use the Site, as you will be bound by these Terms and Conditions. Nothing in these Terms and Conditions affects your statutory rights.
These Terms and Conditions were updated in October 2020.
1.1 When you register with the Site you must ensure that the details provided by you on registration or at any time are correct and complete. You must inform us promptly of any changes to the information that you provided when registering as a member by updating your personal details in the login area.
1.2 When you register to use our site we will ask you for a password. You must keep this password confidential and must not let anyone else use it. You are responsible for all activities and orders that are submitted using your password. If you think anyone else has your password, please let us know so that we can cancel it.
1.3 We may suspend or cancel your registration immediately at our reasonable discretion or if you breach any of your obligations under these Terms and Conditions. You can cancel this agreement at any time by emailing us. If you cancel, you must stop using the Site.
1.4 The suspension or cancellation of your registration and your right to use the Site shall not affect you or our rights or liabilities.
2. Proprietary rights
2.1 The content of the site is protected by copyright, trademarks, database and other intellectual property rights. You may retrieve and display the content of the site on a computer screen, store such content in electronic form on disk (but not any server or other storage device connected to a network) or print one copy of such content for your own personal, non-commercial use, provided you keep intact all and any copyright and proprietary notices. You may not otherwise reproduce, modify, copy or distribute or use for commercial purposes any of the materials or content on the site without written permission from us.
2.2 No licence is granted to you in these Terms and Conditions to use any trademark or service marks of Shores of Africa or its licensors including, without limitation, the trade marks, or service marks Shores of Africa.
3. Prices and VAT (Sales Tax)
3.1 Our prices are stated in Pounds Sterling (£) and VAT is not charged as our company is not VAT registered.
3.2 We clearly show you the price you have to pay for our products. If, by mistake, we have under-priced a product, we will not have to deliver that produce to you at the stated price, provided that we tell you before we post the product. You can then decide if you still want the product.
4 Acceptance of your order
4.1 Our products are sold for personal use only. There will be no contract of any kind between you and us unless we actually dispatch the products to you. Your order (including payment) is an offer to buy from us, so nothing we do or say will amount to any acceptance of that offer until we actually send the product to you. At any point up until then, we may decide not to send the products to you and to give you a full refund. If an item is out of stock, we will let you know and unless you then request your payment be returned, we will hold your payment until the product is next in stock. At the moment the goods are dispatched (and not before), a contract will be made between you and us.
5. Delivery and charges
5.1 The cost of packing and delivery is clearly displayed at “checkout” for your approval prior to confirming your order.
5.2 Our delivery within the UK is usually 3 to 5 working days. Reasonable allowance should be made for orders made over the weekend and at National Holidays. We do our best to deliver within 30 days of the date of your order but shall not be liable for loss occasioned by delay in delivery arising out of any cause beyond our control.
6. Cancellation and return
Please see cancellations and returns policy page (Please include link to page)
