How to purchase products from thumbsup.com
You can choose to register with This website, but you do not have to in order to purchase a Product from it. If you do register, it will make the process of making a purchase quicker the next time you use the Site. In registering, you will be providing certain personal information to us.
Products may be ordered by clicking on the items you wish to purchase and then following the prompts that will appear on-screen. You may check and correct any input errors in your order up until the point at which you submit your order to us by clicking the “commit to buy” button on the checkout page. You will also have to agree to these terms and conditions before you can place your order.
You will then be transferred to our secure third-party payment gateway to process your payment details.
We will then send you an initial order acknowledgement by email and once we have checked whether we are able to meet your order and whether payment has been successful, we will either send you an order confirmation by email (order confirmation) (at which point a contract between you and us shall be formed), or alternatively, we will confirm by email that we are unable to meet your order.
Where we are unable to accept your order due to the requested Products being out of stock or unavailable, we will aim to advise you when we expect the requested Products to be in stock/available and you will be given the opportunity to proceed with the order or receive a full refund. If you want to proceed with the order notwithstanding that there will be a delay in delivery of the Products due to them being out of stock or unavailable, we will send an order confirmation at which point a contract between you and us shall be formed. After entering into the contract, we will be under a legal duty to supply you with Products that are in conformity with the contract.
Once the order confirmation has been sent to you, we will deliver the Products in accordance with the relevant delivery section below.

Cooling Off Period
If you change your mind about your order which is made by post, telephone or online via our Site, you may cancel your order within 2 hours of your order and up to fourteen (14) days afterwards, beginning on the day after you receive the Products. In this case, you will receive a full refund of the price paid for the product in accordance with our refunds policy (available here).
To cancel (change your mind about) a contract, you must inform us:
in writing, either to the address noted at the end of these terms and conditions or by emailing us at [email protected] giving us your name, address and order reference.
You must also return all Products that you have received to us with the original packaging within fourteen days after the day of notifying us of the cancellation, and at your own cost and risk. Returned Products must clearly show the order number obtained from us on the package and should be sent to the address noted at the end of these terms and conditions.
You have a legal obligation to take reasonable care of the Products while they are in your possession. If you fail to comply with this obligation, we may have a right to deduct the cost of any deterioration from you up to the price of the Product, from the refund to which you are otherwise entitled.
You will not have any right to cancel a contract for the supply of any of the following Products:
perishable items or cosmetic grooming products or other items which cannot be returned for health or hygiene reasons;
any products which become mixed inseparably with other items after their delivery unless in each case such Products were damaged or faulty when delivered to you or have been incorrectly delivered.
To return the Products, you should package the parcel securely (making sure you include a note of your name and address (enclosing any returns slip, if we have provided one) inside the parcel) and then return it to us, either by courier or by recorded delivery mail or other form of certified mail, or if the Products are too bulky to return by mail then by a suitable carrier, to the following address:

Please save your proof of posting/despatch and tracking information until your refund has been processed. You will be responsible for the cost and risk of returning the Products to us, except in the case of items which we substitute if the precise Products you order are not in stock.
Nothing in this section affects your legal rights.
If you cancel a contract between us within the fourteen-day cooling-off period (see clause 8(a) above), we will process the refund due to you as soon as possible and, in any case, within fourteen days after the day on which we receive the Products back or, if earlier, the day on which we receive evidence that you have returned the Products to our return address (see above). We will refund the price of the Product in full, including the cost of standard delivery. However, we will not refund your cost of returning the Products to us.
We will refund any money received from you using the same method originally used by you to pay for your purchase unless otherwise agreed.
If any Product is damaged or faulty when delivered to you or has developed a fault, you may have one or more legal remedies available to you, depending on when you make us aware of the problem, in accordance with your legal rights. If you believe a Product was delivered damaged or faulty or has developed a fault, you should inform us as soon as possible, preferably in writing, giving us your name, address and order reference. Nothing in this section affects your legal rights.
It is not possible to describe every detail of the Products available to purchase on the website. Each description is therefore abbreviated and to the best of our ability, is correct at the time of its input onto the Site.

If any part of provision of these terms and conditions are found to be unenforceable, this shall not affect the validity of any other part or provision.

These terms and conditions shall be governed by English law.
