In this Part of the Terms and Conditions when we refer to a "working day", we mean a day excluding a Saturday, a Sunday, a bank holiday or other public holiday or local holiday in Ayrshire or holiday that is customary in the UK textile manufacturing industry or any other day when we advise that we are closed.

6                 Purchase Process

Display of Goods

6.1             Please remember that shopping online is very different to shopping in person in a "bricks and mortar" retail environment. Whilst we aim to show Goods as accurately as possible, the images on the Website are for illustrative purposes only and the Goods may look different in the flesh. In particular you acknowledge that:

(a)              the colours which are shown for the Goods on the Website will depend on many factors including your display settings;

(b)              we reserve the right to amend the specification of the Goods if required by any applicable statutory or regulatory requirements;

(c)              all Goods are subject to availability; we may not be able to supply your order;

(d)              any delivery estimates given on the Website or by email are estimates only;

(e)              although we have made every effort to be as accurate as possible, because our Goods are handmade, all sizes and measurements are approximate and you agree that:

(i)         a margin of + or - 5% in the metreage of the Goods delivered to you;

(ii)        a tolerance of + or - 5% in the stated weight per running metre of the Goods; and /or

(iii)       any other minor discrepancies (in our reasonable opinion) in the Goods,

will not diminish our right to receive payment for Goods, will not affect the performance of the contract between us and will not be treated as a breach of our obligations under the contract.

6.2             The display of any Goods on the Website is an advertisement and not an offer. You make an offer to purchase Goods from us, for the value, and at the price, specified in the online order form by:

(a)              completing the staged process on the Website; or

(b)              placing an order by telephone by contacting us on +44 (0) 1292 267615 during our office hours which are between 9am and 5pm (GMT) on a working day. If you provide us with an email address, we will follow the process for online sales set out below. If you do not provide us with an email address, we reserve the right to follow an alternative process of sale, which you will be advised of when you call,

(in either case your "Order").

You are responsible for ensuring that the terms of your Order are complete and accurate and for giving us any necessary information relating to the Goods (including designs and other specifications relating to the manufacture of the Goods) within a sufficient time to enable us to fulfil the Order. Our order process allows you to check and amend any errors before submitting your Order to us. Please take the time to read and check your Order at each stage of the order process and please remember that, in order to be valid, any promotion codes must be entered at the time of placing your Order.

6.3             Your Order only constitutes an offer to purchase Goods from us, and does not form a binding contract until accepted by us. Where you order more than one item your Order contains a series of offers for each item individually.

6.4             On receipt of your Order, we will send you an acknowledgement email to the email address you supplied on the Order process. This email is NOT acceptance by us of any offers to purchase Goods; it is just confirmation that we have received your Order.

6.5             Subject to any alternative process of sale of which we have advised you of, we will notify acceptance of your offer to purchase a product by sending an email advising that your Order has been accepted and despatched ("Acceptance Email"). This Acceptance Email constitutes acceptance by us of your offer and only at this stage is a binding contract created.

6.6             Your Order will be processed between 9am (GMT) and 5pm (GMT) on a working day only. For example, if an Order is placed between Friday at 5pm (GMT) and Monday at 9am (GMT), the Order will not be processed, and an Acceptance Email will not be sent, until Monday at the earliest. We reserve the right to refuse any offer in your Order prior to the acceptance from us of that offer.

6.7             We must receive full payment of the price of Goods and the delivery charges before we can accept any offers to purchase Goods from the Website.

6.8             We reserve the right to refuse any Order at our discretion and to correct any typographical errors or inaccuracies or omissions on our Website. Non-acceptance of an Order may, for example, result from one of the following:

(a)              our inability to obtain authorisation of payment; or

(b)              the identification of a mistake or omission within the product information, including price or promotion, or delivery or payment terms or return policies.

In these circumstances, we will inform you by email and we will not process your Order. If you have already paid for the Goods, we will refund you the full amount as soon as possible.

7                 Availability

7.1             All Orders are subject to availability and, as a consequence, you should be aware that we may not be able to fulfil your Order. Please remember that Goods in your shopping basket are not reserved and may be purchased by other customers.

7.2             Unfortunately, we cannot ensure permanent availability of all items although we will try our hardest. Once we have received your Order, if something is out of stock or is otherwise unavailable we will notify you by email or phone that the item is unavailable and suggest alternative Goods you may wish to order. On being notified that the item is unavailable, you can choose to (1) order an alternative item by emailing us details of the item you would like to order; or (2) cancel the Order by notifying us by email.

7.3             If an item is temporarily out of stock we will notify you by email or phone of when we might be able to deliver that item to you and give you the option of accepting a longer delivery period; ordering one or more alternative items or cancelling your Order.

7.4             Any unavailable item will not be included in the contract for the Order of Goods which is despatched. Where you order an alternative item, this is considered to constitute a separate offer to purchase Goods from us, and a binding contract will not be created until this offer is accepted by us by an Acceptance Email.

7.5             We reserve the right to withdraw any Goods from the Website at any time before we accept your offer to purchase those Goods, and we will not be liable to you, or anyone else, for withdrawing Goods.

8                 Payment

8.1             All prices and charges on the Website are in UK Pounds Sterling and unless otherwise stated are inclusive of UK value added tax ("VAT") and any other applicable taxes. Delivery charges will also apply; these are displayed separately in the order process. If you order Goods from our Website for delivery outside the UK, they may be subject to import duties and taxes which are levied when the delivery reaches the specified destination. You will be responsible for payment of any such import duties and taxes.

8.2             Prices for our Goods may change from time to time but changes will not affect any Order which we have confirmed with an Acceptance Email.

8.3             Payment for Goods ordered online must be made through our Website using Visa, Visa electron, MasterCard, Maestro, Switch, Solo, American Express or PayPal. No other method of payment is accepted. You will be required to provide accurate payment details and you confirm that the payment details provided upon ordering will be valid and correct. You confirm that the debit/credit card that you use belongs to you or that you have been specifically authorised by the owner of the card to use it.

8.4             Our Website contains a large number of Goods and, as a consequence, it is always possible that, despite our best efforts, some of the Goods listed on our Website may be incorrectly priced. We try to ensure that all pricing on the Website is accurate and we will normally verify prices as part of our despatch procedures so that, where the correct price of the Goods is less than our stated price, we will charge the lower amount when despatching the Goods to you. If the correct price of the Goods is higher than the price stated on our Website, we will normally, at our discretion, either contact you for instructions before despatching the Goods, or reject your order and notify you of such rejection. We are under no obligation to provide the Goods to you at the incorrect (lower) price, even after we have sent you an Acceptance Email, if the pricing error is obvious and unmistakeable and could have reasonably been recognised by you as an error.

8.5             Any promotion codes that we offer are non-transferable and there is no cash alternative. Furthermore, promotion codes cannot be used in conjunction with any other promotion code or offers, and must be redeemed by the relevant published redemption date. In order to be valid, a promotion code must be entered at the time of placing your Order over the Website.  

8.6             Where you pay by credit or debit card we will process the payment at the time of preparing your Order of Goods for despatch.

8.7             All refund payments will be paid to you in UK Pounds Sterling and will match the amount you paid in UK Pounds Sterling for the Goods and delivery (if the delivery charge is refundable). Refunds of international customs duties and sales tax are excluded outside of the EU.

8.8             Additional exchange rate information for overseas customers

For overseas customers or for customers whose credit or debit card is not denominated in UK Pounds Sterling, the actual price charged to the customer will be subject to the exchange rate applied by the customer's credit or debit card company on the day they process the transaction.

9                 Delivery

9.1             We will deliver the ordered Goods to the delivery address you supplied in your Order (although we are unable to deliver to PO boxes). If the Goods are returned undeliverable, we will treat the contract as cancelled, and the money paid to us, excluding the delivery charge, will be refunded to you.

9.2             For Delivery within the UK

9.2.1          Delivery arrangements will depend on the location of the delivery address in the UK.

9.2.2          If your UK delivery Order is acknowledged by email as received by us before 12 noon (GMT) on a working day and the item of Goods ordered is in stock we will endeavour to deliver your Order within 30 working days. However, sometimes during busy periods or due to factors outside of our control, deliveries may take longer and deliveries to certain areas may take longer to arrive. If your Order is acknowledged by email as received by us after 12 noon (GMT) on a working day or on a non-working day it will be deemed to have been received the following working day before 12 noon (GMT) for delivery purposes. We may commit to try to deliver Goods to you more quickly than is specified in these Terms and Conditions. Whilst we will try to honour any such commitment we do not guarantee that we will be able to do so. Any Orders which are required for same day delivery must be received before 12 noon (GMT).

9.2.3          UK delivery Orders will be delivered by courier on working days only and a signature acknowledging receipt of the Order at the delivery address will be required. UK delivery may incur a charge as detailed in our 'UK Delivery Information' section. Click here.

9.3             For European/International Delivery

9.3.1          Please note that in the event of deliveries outside of the UK, delivery arrangements will depend on the location of the delivery address and delivery times will vary depending on which country you are requesting delivery to.

9.3.2          Customers will be required to sign for all deliveries. The costs of delivery to countries outside of the UK will vary depending on which country you are requesting delivery to. The applicable costs will be notified to you before you place your Order.

9.3.3          If you order Goods from our Website for delivery outside the UK, they may be subject to import duties and taxes which are levied when the delivery reaches the specified destination. You will be responsible for payment of any such import duties and taxes.  Please note that we have no control over these charges and cannot predict their amount or notify them to you. Please contact your local customs office for further information before placing your Order.

9.3.4          Please also note that you must comply with all applicable laws and regulations of the country for which the Goods are destined.  We will not be liable for any breach by you of any such laws.

9.4             There are some delivery restrictions on where we can deliver and these will be given to you on request by contacting us at customerservice@beggandcompany.com

9.5             An estimated delivery time will be given in the Acceptance Email notifying you that your Order of Goods has been despatched. Although we will use all reasonable means to ensure that your Order of Goods is delivered within the time specified, we cannot accept responsibility for late deliveries that are due to circumstances outside our reasonable control, such as postal delays. However, where reasonably possible, we will inform you if we become aware of any unexpected delay in delivery and you may either cancel your Order or agree a further delivery time with us.

9.6             When the Goods have been delivered to you, and you have paid the price, you will become the owner of those Goods, at which point they will be at your risk, and you will be liable for any subsequent damage, loss or destruction.

10               Returning Goods & Refunds

10.1           We only accept returns in the following circumstances:

(a)             Where you cancel under the Distance Selling Regulations 2000

If you are a UK or EU customer then, under the Consumer Protection (Distance Selling) Regulations 2000 (the "Regulations"), you may cancel your Order for any reason within eight (8) working days of receipt of the Goods ("Statutory Period") for a refund of the price of the Goods together with the delivery charge. To cancel your Order please write to us at customerservice@beggandcompany.com or Alex Begg & Co., 17 Viewfield Road, Ayr, KA8 8HJ. This right to cancel for any reason is known as the 'cooling-off' period and is in accordance with the Regulations. The right to cancel the Order under the Regulations will only apply if you are a UK or EU customer. 

However, this cancellation right does not apply in the case of any made-to-measure or custom-made products made to your specification or products which are clearly personalised, for example, any Goods that are provided as part of our monogramming service.

If you cancel your Order within the Statutory Period and the Goods have been delivered, or are subsequently delivered to you, you must return the Goods to us within 14 days of cancellation and take reasonable care of them while they are in your possession. Details on how to return the Goods are given below. If Goods are not returned to us you will be charged for the direct costs incurred by us in recovering the Goods. Your obligation to take reasonable care of the Goods while they are in your possession extends to ensuring that items are not soiled or damaged while in your possession.

If you cancel your Order within the Statutory Period we will refund the price of the Goods, to the debit or credit card used in the original transaction within 28 days. Please note that refunds for Goods bought as gifts can only be given to the debit or credit cardholder (the original payer). If, however, we consider that reasonable care has not been taken of the Goods while they were in your possession or the Goods are damaged or soiled we will seek to recover the cost of the Goods from you. This does not affect your statutory rights.

(b)            Where your Goods are damaged, faulty or otherwise not as described

When your Goods are delivered please check that the Order is complete and not damaged. If your Order is visibly damaged, do not accept the Order and please advise us by email at customerservice@beggandcompany.com and return the Goods to us at Alex Begg & Co., 17 Viewfield Road, Ayr, KA8 8HJ.

If you have accepted the Goods and subsequently discover that they are damaged/ faulty or mis-described, you are entitled to a refund, price reduction or replacement. Where a replacement is not possible, a refund will be offered.

Do not continue to use your Goods once you have discovered a defect. As soon as you detect that your Goods are defective, please advise us by email in advance at customerservice@beggandcompany.com and return them to us indicating what the issue is and whether you would like a refund, price reduction or replacement. Please return the Goods with all original packaging provided.

If you are entitled to a refund on damaged, faulty or mis-described grounds, we will refund you as follows any Goods from your Order which are damaged, faulty or mis-described or where we ascertain on return that there is a quality problem, we will refund the cost of your Order and all delivery charges, including the postage cost of returning the Goods.

We will refund you on the credit card or debit card used by you to pay.

10.2           We do not accept returns of any made-to-measure or custom-made products made to your specification or products which are clearly personalised, for example, any Goods that are provided as part of our monogramming service unless those Goods are damaged, faulty or mis-described.

10.3           Return Process

To return your Order of Goods via post:

  1. Notify us in writing at customerservice@beggandcompany.com within 14 days of receipt of the Goods stating your name, address, order number and reason for the return.
  2. We will email to confirm that we have received your email.
  3. After receiving our confirmation email you can return the Goods to us with all original packaging provided (at your own expense). Postage on returns, refunds and exchanges will not be refunded unless the item is defective.
  4. Take the parcel to your local post office. Please retain your proof of postage stamp.
  5. Please send your parcel(s) to Alex Begg & Co., 17 Viewfield Road, Ayr, KA8 8HJ.
  6. On receipt of the returned Goods, we will email to confirm your return has been processed and refund to the original method of payment the full price paid for the Goods returned to us, provided, where the return is not due to the Goods being damaged/ faulty or mis-described, the returned Goods are in a saleable condition.

Please ensure returned items are in good condition and are carefully packed.

If you have any problems with your purchase, we can offer help and assistance. Please email us at customerservice@beggandcompany.com. Nothing within these Terms and Conditions affects your statutory rights.

Part 3 – General terms relating to our relationship with you

12               We will not be liable for any loss, damage, expense, costs, delays or other liability whatsoever (including without limitation any financial losses such as loss of profit) which you may incur as a result of any event beyond our reasonable control (including without limitation any failure of transmission, communication, computer or other facilities or your inability to access the Website for any reason or any failure, error or delay in sending or receiving of any notice or communication or instruction through the post or any electronic medium or for any use of, or content displayed on, our Website).

13               Nothing within these Terms and Conditions operates so as to exclude, limit or restrict our liability for death or personal injury or for any other liability the exclusion of which is expressly prohibited by Scots law.

14               These Terms and Conditions do not affect your statutory rights as a consumer.

15               We may transfer our rights and obligations under a contract formed between you and us to another organisation, but this will not affect your rights or our obligations under these Terms and Conditions.

16               All notices which we need to give to you under these Terms and Conditions will be sent by us to your registered email address.

17               These Terms and Conditions set out the entire agreement between you and us in respect of the sale, purchase and use of the Goods. They supersede any previous agreement or understanding in relation to the subject matter of these Terms and Conditions.

18               This contract is between you and us. No other person shall have any rights to enforce any of its terms.

19               If any provision of these Terms and Conditions is held by any competent authority to be invalid or unenforceable in whole or in part, then that provision shall be deemed severable from the Terms and Conditions and the validity of the other provisions and the remainder of the provision in question shall be unaffected.

20               If we fail to insist that you perform any of your obligations under these Terms and Conditions, or if we do not enforce our rights against you, or if we delay in doing so, that will not mean that we have waived our rights against you and will not mean that you do not have to comply with those obligations. If we do waive a default by you, we will only do so in writing, and that will not mean that we will automatically waive any later default by you.

21               The interpretation, construction, effect and enforceability of this agreement shall be governed by Scots Law, and you and we agree to submit to the non-exclusive jurisdiction of the Scottish courts for the determination of disputes. All rights not expressly granted are reserved to us.
