c. Shopping on the website


The following Terms and Conditions apply to how we supply any goods displayed for sale on our Website ("Goods") which you purchase through our Website. You should read these Terms and Conditions carefully before you submit an order for Goods to us.

Nothing in these Terms and Conditions affects your statutory rights.



  • 9.1 The placing of Goods on our Website is an invitation to accept offers for such Goods and is not an offer to sell at the listed price nor is it binding on us. We are under no obligation to accept your order (whether or not the order has been confirmed and the credit card been charged). Our acceptance of your order will take place when we email you to accept it, at which point a contract will come into existence between you and us.


  • 9.2 If we are unable to accept your order, we will inform you of this in writing and will not charge you for the Goods. This might be because the Goods are out of stock, because of unexpected limits on our resources which we could not reasonably plan for, because we have identified an error in the price or description of the Goods or because we are unable to meet a delivery deadline you have specified.


  • 9.3 In the event Goods are listed at an incorrect price due to a typographical error, we will notify you of the correct price by e-mail and we will give you the choice of either purchasing the Goods at the correct price or cancelling your order. If you confirm you want to purchase the Goods at the corrected price we will deliver the product to you. If payment has been charged for the purchase and you subsequently cancel your order on the basis of the Goods being listed at an incorrect price we will, on return of the Goods, immediately issue a refund.



  • 10.1 The images of the Goods on our Website are for illustrative purposes only. Although we have made every effort to display the colours accurately, we cannot guarantee that a device's display of the colours accurately reflects the colour of the Goods. Your Goods may vary slightly from those images.


  • 10.2 We may change the Goods:
  • a) to reflect changes in relevant laws and regulatory requirements; and
  • b) to implement minor technical adjustments and improvements. These changes will not affect your use of the Goods.



  • 11.1 The prices for Goods are inclusive of VAT but exclusive of delivery charges. Delivery charges are as set out in the check out process.


  • 11.2 Payments must be made by credit, debit card or Paypal accounts and we shall not despatch any Goods until we receive confirmation of payment. Your payment will be processed by a Secure Connection at the time you place your order on the relevant section of the Website.


  • 11.3 Where Goods are to be supplied from stock, such supply is subject to availability of stocks at the date of your order.


  • 11.4 Delivery is restricted to the United Kingdom and Europe. Notwithstanding paragraph 4, we aim to deliver Goods to UK mainland addresses within 7 working days from despatch (excluding weekends and bank holidays). We will inform you as soon as we can if we are unable to deliver the Goods within 30 days of your order and you may agree an alternative delivery period or you may cancel the order.  If our supply of the Goods is delayed by an event outside our control then we will contact you as soon as possible to let you know and we will take steps to minimise the effect of the delay. Provided we do this we will not be liable for delays caused by the event, but if there is a risk of substantial delay you may contact us to end the contract and receive a refund for any Goods you have paid for but not received.


  • 11.5 Please ensure on delivery that the Goods are undamaged. If they are damaged you need to notify us straight away. You should keep your delivery note and packaging. You will own the Goods once we have received payment in full.


  • 11.6 Risk in the Goods passes to you when the Goods are signed for at the delivery address stipulated in your order. We accept no responsibility for any damage or loss to the Goods after risk passes.



  • 12. 1 You may cancel your order for Goods at any stage before the Goods are despatched and up to 14 calendar days after Goods are delivered. To cancel your order under this paragraph 12.1, you must notify us at our address in writing, (including e-mail, letter, or text message) or by telephone and return the Goods to us within 14 days of this notification or provide evidence of the Goods having been returned.  We will refund you the amount paid for the Goods provided that the Goods are complete, unused, in 'as new' condition and with any accessories.  We hold the right to reduce the amount of money refunded should the Goods returned show evidence of use beyond the handling necessary to see whether the Goods are as expected.


  • 12.2 If you cancel prior to despatch of the Goods we will make a refund to you in accordance with paragraph 14 of these Terms and Conditions.


  • 12.3 We reserve the right to cancel any Order prior to delivery. If an Order is cancelled by us, we will make a refund to you of any payments made in respect of the Order and you will have no further liability to make any payments to us.



  • 13.1 If the Goods are defective, incorrect or damaged on delivery, please notify us as soon as you become aware of any problem and return the Goods to us. On cancellation for whatever reason you must return to us the Goods we have delivered to you within 14 days.


  • 13.2 All Goods being returned should be logged at https://trutex.gfs-returns.com and posted at a Post Office or Hermes drop point. Returns are free of charge. 


  • 13.3 We ask that you allow us to (at your option) repair, replace or refund you for the price paid for any Goods which are found to be defective, incorrect or damaged on delivery.



  • 14.1 Refunds will be made (less any applicable discount) by re-crediting your payment card account from which the money was originally debited. All refunds will be made within 14 days of us receiving the returned Goods or upon evidence that you have returned the Goods to us.


  • 14.2 A full refund will be issued if the Goods are returned with no sign of unreasonable use which would lead to the diminished value of the Goods. The refund will include reasonable standard postage costs if postage costs have been incurred.



Our secure server software encrypts all your payment card details. The process scrambles all the information, allowing no unauthorised third party to intercept the data. Your browser will confirm that you are shopping in a secure environment by showing either a locked padlock icon or an image of a padlock next to the payment details in the relevant area of the Website.



In the event that we fail in meeting our high standards of customer service please do not hesitate to contact [email protected]. We will do our very best to deal with your complaint as soon as possible and make every effort to reach a satisfactory conclusion on your behalf in order to retain your valued custom.

  • 17.3 Save in respect of death and personal injury we shall not be liable (whether in contract, tort (including negligence) or otherwise) for any claim arising under or in connection with Goods purchased from the Website or your use of the Website unless you give us written notice of the claim within three months of becoming aware of the circumstances giving rise to the claim or, if earlier, three months from the time you ought reasonably to have become aware of such circumstances.
