You confirm that the credit or debit card being used is yours. Please note that all credit/debit cardholders are subject to validation checks and authorisation by the issuer of the card. If the issuer of your payment card refuses to pay or does not for any reason authorise payment to KoBeau, we will not be liable for any delay or non-delivery of Products. We retain the legal ownership of all Products until full payment has been made by you and received by us and legal ownership of the Products will immediately transfer back to us if we refund any payment for the Products to you. Risk in the Products transfers to you upon delivery.

14.               Your cancellation rights

14.1           As you are a consumer, you have a legal right to cancel a Contract under the Consumer Contracts Regulations 2013 from the date of the Dispatch Confirmation until the date which is 14 days after you receive the Products. This means that during the relevant period if you change your mind or decide for any other reason that you do not want to receive or keep a Product, you can notify us of your decision to cancel the Contract and receive a refund.

14.2           Your right to return goods does not apply to goods (i) made to your specification; or (ii) which have been clearly personalised; or (iii) which by reason of their nature cannot be returned or are liable to deteriorate or expire rapidly; or (iv) where sealed goods have been supplied which are not suitable for return due to health protection or hygiene reasons, if they become unsealed after delivery.

14.3           To cancel a Contract, you just need to let us know that you have decided to cancel. The easiest way to do this is by e-mailing us at ko@ko-beau.com. In any such e-mail or written communication, you must include details of your order, including your order number, to enable us to identify it. Your cancellation is effective from the date you send us the e-mail or post the letter to us.

14.4           If you cancel your Contract we will:

(a)                Refund you the price you paid for the Products. However, please note we are permitted by law to reduce your refund to reflect any reduction in the value of the goods if this has been caused by your handling them in a way which would not be permitted in a store. If we refund you the price paid before we are able to inspect the goods and later discover that you have handled them in an unacceptable way, you will be liable to pay to us an appropriate amount.

(b)               Refund any delivery costs you have paid, although the maximum refund will be the cost of delivery by the least expensive delivery method we offer (as permitted by law).

(c)                Make any refund due to you as soon as possible and in any event within 14 days after the day on which we receive the Products back from you or, if earlier, the day on which you provide us with evidence that you have sent the Products back to us.

(d)                Refund you on the credit card or debit card used by you to pay. If you used vouchers to pay for the Products we may refund you in vouchers.

(e)                Exchanges. If you indicate in your correspondence with us that you would rather receive an exchange than a refund then this will be processed within 7 working days of receiving your returned goods and will be delivered via standard delivery. In these circumstances, a new Contract will be deemed to have been formed between us in relation to the new Product you have selected (and your various rights of cancellation and return as set out herein will apply to that Product). In the event that we are not able to satisfy your request for an exchange then we will refund you the cost of the Products and the original Contract between us will be cancelled.

14.5           If a Product has been dispatched to you or you have received it before you decide to cancel your Contract:

(a)                you must return it to us in its original packaging without undue delay and in any event no later than 14 days after the day on which you let us know that you wish to cancel the Contract;

(b)               Products should be returned to the following address – 

KoBeau Limited
107-111 Fleet Street
London
EC4A 2AB
UK

(c)                you should have regard to any labelling and packaging guidelines produced by Royal Mail or any other courier used;

(d)                unless the Product is faulty or not as described you will be responsible for the cost of returning the Products to us;

(e)                if sending by post, we recommend that you obtain proof of postage as we do not accept responsibility for items lost in transit; and

(f)                 if you cancel your order but do not return such goods to us within 14 working days of notifying us of cancellation, we shall be entitled to withhold payment of any refund.

15.               Your other statutory rights to return Products under the Consumer Rights Act 2015

15.1           Because you are a consumer, we are under a legal duty to supply Products that are in conformity with the Contract. As a consumer, you have legal rights in relation to Products that are faulty or not as described. These legal rights (which are summarised in general terms below) are not affected by your right of return and refund in clause 15 (above) or anything else in these T&Cs.

15.2           The Consumer Rights Act 2015 states that goods must be as described, fit for purpose and of satisfactory quality. During the expected lifespan of your Products your legal rights entitle you to the following:

(a)                Up to 30 days: if your goods are faulty, then you are entitled to an immediate refund.

(b)               Up to 6 months: if your goods cannot be repaired or replaced, then you are entitled to a full refund in most cases.

(c)                After 6 months (depending on the type of Product): if your goods do not last a reasonable length of time then you may be entitled to some money back.

16.               Sale

All sale and promotional items have been displayed and available to buy at the original, higher price for at least 28 days online before being reduced to the reduced price stated either on the Site or in-store. Some items within the sale are promotional, therefore the prices of these items are subject to change and may increase after the sale period. Standard UK delivery of Sale purchases may take up to 7 working days. Sale items may take longer to arrive due to the volume of orders placed during our sale period. Please note that while all products remain in pristine condition, due to the nature of the sale some external packaging may appear slightly worn. Sale items cannot be gift wrapped. Please note that an item could go out of stock during checkout and your purchase is only confirmed once dispatched.

17.               Our liability for loss or damage suffered by you

We are responsible to you for foreseeable loss and damage caused by us. If we fail to comply with these T&Cs we will be responsible for loss or damage that you suffer that is a foreseeable result of our breaking this contract or our failing to use reasonable care and skill. Loss or damage is foreseeable if either it is obvious that it will happen or if, at the time the contract was made, both we and you knew it might happen (for example, if you discussed it with us during the sales process).

We do not exclude or limit in any way our liability to you where it would be unlawful to do so. This includes liability for death or personal injury caused by our negligence or the negligence of our employees, agents or subcontractors; for fraud or fraudulent misrepresentation; for breach of your legal rights in relation to the Products as summarised at clause 16; and for defective Products under the Consumer Protection Act 1987.

We only supply Products for domestic and private use. You agree not to use the Products for any commercial, business or resale purposes. We have no liability to you for any loss of profit, loss of business, business interruption, or loss of business opportunity.

18.               Questions and complaints

If you have any questions about these T&Cs or if you wish to contact us to complain about any matter in regard to the Products, please e-mail us at ko@ko-beau.com.

If after contacting us and following our complaints procedure you still feel that your complaint has not been resolved satisfactorily, please access the Online Dispute Resolution platform. 

19.               Transfer of rights

We may transfer our rights and obligations under these T&Cs to another organisation and we will always notify you in writing if this happens (but this will not affect your rights or our obligations under these T&Cs). You may only transfer your rights or your obligations under these T&Cs to another person if we agree in writing.

This Site, any content contained herein and any contracts entered into as a result of usage of this Site are governed by English law. The parties to any such contract agree to submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of the courts of England and Wales. All contracts are concluded in English.
