Terms & Conditions

SYRINGA UK Ltd (The Company)

1. PRICES

 All prices are subject to change without notice and subject to a delivery charge specified at the time of ordering and any free delivery offers would only apply to the United Kingdom and could be withdrawn at any time without notice. Orders placed during special offers will be honoured on that date and time providing there’s available stock. Unless otherwise agreed in writing, all orders are executed subject to prices ruling at the date of dispatch and no price list of the Company, whether published or not, shall affect the right of the Company to charge for the goods in accordance with this clause. The delivery charges on internet orders are based on delivery in UK mainland (excluding some post codes) so there will be extra charges if delivery is required elsewhere. The Customer will be informed of the total price of the order before the order becomes binding and if there are any price changes before delivery then the Customer will have the option of cancelling their order and getting their money back. Any clerical error or omission in any sales literature, quotation, price list (including the Internet), acceptance of offer, invoice or other document or information issued by the Company shall be subject to correction without any liability on the part of the Company. Web site prices may be different to retail prices.

 

2. ORDERS

 Web orders may be placed 24/7. Please see Section: 5 for delivery details. We try to process all orders as quickly as possible, usually within 1 working day of receipt of order and payment, unless items are out of stock. Internet orders will only be dispatched once payment is received.

For trade account customers, our payment terms are strictly 30 days. If an item is out of stock we will contact you as soon as possible to offer you an alternative or a refund or to place it on back-order. For this reason it is important you give us a correct phone number or email address. Confirmation of telephone instructions should be clearly marked as such.

 

3. PAYMENTS

 All payments are in UK pound sterling. We accept all major Credit / Debit cards through PayPal as well as Pay Pal account payments. In the case of goods purchased by credit card, the validation and checking is done through the PayPal service. We also verify abnormal orders and requests for card payments. All credit card details are held in the PayPal system and we only receive a transaction reference. Our server DOES NOT store card details.

For trade account customers, our payment terms are strictly 30 days. Please contact Syringa UK Ltd at sales@syringa-uk.co.uk to open a trade account.

 

4. CANCELLATION

 The Customer has the right to cancel an order and receive a full refund of the price of the product(s), excluding the shipping charge which is not refundable, paid to the Company from the moment the order is confirmed up to and including 7 working days from date of receipt of the delivered products providing the products are returned to the Company unopened, unused, in the original packaging and in a resalable condition. Naturally, in the interests of both the Customer and the Company, the Company would appreciate due notice of intended order cancellation before the products are dispatched for delivery since the Customer would be responsible for the cost of returning the products once they are dispatched.

 

5. DELIVERY

Delivery dates and times are given in good faith by the Company to indicate estimated delivery dates and times but shall not amount to any contractual obligation to deliver at the date and time stated and is subject to payment clearance, locality, human error, Royal Mail or courier company error, delay and system failure. The Company will accept no liability for direct or consequential loss or damage arising from delay in delivery or if the Customer is not in to sign for the delivery. In the instance of collection orders paid for by credit card, the cardholder must be present before or on collection.

All Standard orders are delivered using Royal Mail Class 2 which is a 3 to 5 day service. Next Day deliveries are at an additional cost and only applicable in the United Kingdom.  All orders must be placed before 13H30 for same day dispatch. Orders placed on Friday before 13H30 through Next Day service, will only be delivered on the next working Monday. All Standard orders will be delivered 3 to 5 days after the day of dispatch according to Royal Mail's standard terms and conditions. Items with free delivery go out as Standard delivery. 

Please note: we unfortunately cannot guarantee Next Day Delivery since we use either a courier or Royal Mail (depending on which service you choose) and cannot be held responsible for this third party's performance or lack thereof. Royal Mail 24 does not guaranty next day delivery but strongly endeavours to do so. We do not reimburse our customers for a late delivery if we have dispatched the order timeously, without delay and according to your instructions. We process all orders as quickly as possible, usually on the next working day, unless items are out of stock (see 2. ORDERS). The Company can help you find out why your delivery is late but any complaints you might have regarding a late delivery should be taken up with the courier company or Royal Mail since you have been let down by their poor service, not the Company's. 

All product weights for delivery are calculated including any product packaging.  If you are unable to accept your delivery on the day that we inform you it will arrive, Royal Mail will leave a ‘Something for you' card at the delivery address. This shows the address and opening hours of the local delivery office for you to go and collect it at. We cannot be held responsible for any spoilage or loss of your goods if you were not there to receive/sign for your delivery. Likewise, the courier will leave a card for you to follow up on. 

Trade account customers are eligible for free delivery, UK mainland, on any order over £55.00 excl. VAT. The appropriate shipping method must be selected by the customer at check-out.

If however, your expectations have not been met, please let us know in writing by email and we will gladly arrange a refund for you providing the products are returned to the Company unopened, unused, in the original packaging and in a resalable condition. A reasonable time will be allowed for the Customer to inspect the goods to ensure the order complies with The Sale of Goods Act 1979. Generally 7 working days from date of receipt of goods is considered reasonable. Any requests for refunds must be made within 7 working days of receipt of the delivery. Outward delivery charges are not included in the refund policy and the cost of returning any goods is the Customer’s responsibility as per the Distance Selling Regulations.

Otherwise your personal information will be held securely in accordance with the law.

Cookie Information: the two cookies used in the MediGenix site are as follows:

1.) PHPSESSID - Contains a PHP "session ID" which expires when the browser is closed. The "PHPSESSID" cookie is required so the site can recognise the same user clicking from page to page. Without it, every page would be treated as the first visit to the site, and anything added to the shopping basket would be instantly forgotten. Online shopping would therefore, be impossible.

2.) Session - Contains a PHP "session ID" which can also contain an email address and encrypted password. This expires after one year. The "session" cookie is intended for the user's convenience. The MediGenix site creates this with a copy of the initial session ID so the user can be classed as "returning" and the contents of their shopping basket will still be available. If the user signs in with an email address and password, these login details are also saved so they can remain logged in when returning (the password is encrypted). If the user signs out, their login details are removed from the cookie.

Any other cookies are created by 3rd party scripts, such as Google Analytics and any information about the cookies they use can be obtained through them. When visitors use our website, information such as the ISP's domain, the time accessed and the pages visited will be stored by us simply to analyse the web traffic and improve content of the site.

If you have any questions/comments about privacy, please email deirdre@syringa-uk.co.uk. 

If you have issued your consent you may receive information about new products or exclusive offers from time-to-time. You have the option to unsubscribe from receiving these emails whenever you want to by simply letting us know at customercare@syringa-uk.co.uk. We don't send spam and promise not to pester you with unnecessary emails as we hate them as much as you do.

 

12. SECURITY

 We have an effective security policy that we review regularly. As explained above under PRIVACY, all credit card details that are entered by you the Customer are done so on a secure server and are not available to anyone else and nor are they stored by us. Customers are responsible for ensuring only authorised personnel access their accounts. If for any reason you are concerned about this, please contact us on hendrik@syringa-uk.co.uk
