Online Purchases

Entering into a contract

The images of the range in the online shop are intended as an illustration and do not constitute binding offers for sale. By completing the order process by clicking on the "Order & Pay Now" button the customer makes a binding offer to enter into a purchase contract. The customer thereupon receives an automated confirmation of receipt of order by e-mail (order confirmation). This order confirmation does not constitute acceptance of the offer. The contract with Gus & Bear is only concluded when Gus & Bear sends the ordered product to the customer and the shipping to the customer is confirmed by e-mail (shipping confirmation).


Images

The photographs on the Gus & Bear website are illustrative only, colours may appear differently on a screen to the product in reality, and patterns for fabric can vary as they are a handmade product.

 

Sizes

All sizes are approximate. The buyer should be aware, particularly with handmade items, that the true sizes can vary around the stated size. 


Prices

All prices include VAT where applicable.


Shipping charges

Gus & Bear delivers to the UK only Mainland, excluding the Highlands. The price for delivery is £3.99, or £6.99 depending upon the weight and size of your order. The charge can be seen at check out before the order is complete. Customers will not incur additional shipping costs should a delivery be divided into several consignments for technical or logistical reasons. 


Dispatch & Delivery

Delivery is available in the UK mainland excluding the Highlands. We will always aim to dispatch an order within 3 working days, on rare occasions this may take longer. The quantities displayed are a guide only. The stock applies to both the online, and physical store, it is therefore possible for a customer to purchase the last item online and in-store simultaneously. Items that become out of stock due to this will be re-ordered as soon as possible, and dispatched within 24 hours of receipt in store. We will notify you if this occurs with an item you have purchased within 24 hour of your order.

Some of the items we sell are handmade; it may therefore take 2-3 weeks for the item to arrive. If the item is to take longer than 7 working days before dispatch, Gus & Bear will contact the buyer to let them know the new estimated dispatch date, or process a refund.

Gus & Bear reserves the right to use the delivery company of their choosing but will not be held responsible for delays caused by the delivery company, after it has left our premises. We reserve the right to request the buyer to allow more time to allow for delivery, when this advice is given to Gus & Bear from the delivery company.

In the event that Gus & Bear is unable to deliver the ordered product because Gus & Bear itself is not supplied by its own suppliers, without culpability on the part of Gus & Bear, Gus & Bear may withdraw from the contract. In such a case, the buyer will be contacted without delay and propose a comparable product. If a comparable product is not available, or if the customer does not wish to have that product, Gus & Bear shall refund the customer.

Items that are damaged when they are delivered, or are missing from a delivery must be reported within 24 hours of receipt, to info@gusandbear.co.uk. Allowing Gus & Bear to raise a complaint with the carrier. Failure to do so will not affect the customer’s statutory guarantee rights.

In order to fulfil customer orders Gus & Bear needs to pass on the buyers delivery address, email address, and if available a contact phone number to the delivery company authorised to delivering the goods. This forms part of the contract with Gus & Bear. The customer does not have the right to object. This information will not be given to any other party.

We will carry out the reimbursement through the same means of payment used in the initial transaction.

We may withhold reimbursement until we have received the goods back or the buyer has supplied evidence of having sent back the goods, whichever is the earliest.

Goods must be returned un-damaged, with all original labels and packaging intact.

You are only liable for any diminished value of the goods resulting from the handling other than what is necessary to establish the nature, characteristics and functioning of the goods.

The buyer shall be contacted via email within 48 hours of notice of withdrawal. The buyer must return the order without undue delay and not later than 14 days from the day of this email.


Exclusion of the right of withdrawal

The right of withdrawal does not apply to goods that are:

Not pre-produced, and an individual selection or determination by the consumer is authoritative for their manufacture or goods that are clearly geared towards the consumer's personal requirements; goods that may perish quickly or goods whose sell-by-date would quickly run out, such as treats or food.

That are not suitable for returns for reasons involving health protection or hygiene if their seal has been broken post-delivery,

That were post-delivery inseparably mixed with other goods.


Guarantee and liability

Payment methods

Payment for goods is to be made Paypal or by Visa, Mastercard, or Maestro & Visa debit card. Unfortunately, we cannot accept payment sent in the form of cash or cheques and are not responsible for loss.
