The website www.playspirations.co.uk (the “website”) is owned and operated by Playspirations Limited (“Playspirations”,or “we”, “us” or “our”). We are a company registered in England and Wales (company number 12787029).

By using our website and each time you buy items on our site you agree to be legally bound by these Terms. If you do not agree, please do not use our website.

We reserve the right, from time to time, with or without notice, to change these Terms at our sole discretion, and the latest version will appear on our website with the date that it was last updated. By using the service after any changes have been posted, you agree to the new Terms.

Use of the Website

 

Your privacy and personal information are important to us. Please also read our Privacy Policy which sets out how we collect, process and use your information.

While we try to make sure that the website is accurate, up-to-date and free from bugs, we cannot promise that it will be. Furthermore, we cannot promise that the website will be fit or suitable for any purpose. Any reliance that you may place on the information on the website is at your own risk.

While we try to make sure that the website is available for your use, we do not promise that the website is available at all times nor do we promise the uninterrupted use by you of the website. It may be necessary, from time to time, to restrict access to the website in order to undertake necessary maintenance work. We will make every effort to ensure that any down time or restricted access is kept to a minimum.

 

We reserve the right to prevent or suspend your access to the website if you do not comply with any part of these Terms or any applicable law.

Ordering goods from us

 

Please read and check your order carefully before submitting it, we cannot be held responsible for mistakes made when placing an order on the website. 

Payment

 

We take payment from your card at the time we receive your order, once we have checked your card details and stock availability. Payment must be made with a valid credit or debit card acceptable to us. Where you have input a different delivery address to registered card address we reserve the right to refuse the order where we suspect fraud.

We will do all that we reasonably can to ensure that all of the information you give us when paying for your order is secure by using an encrypted secure payment mechanism. However, in the absence of negligence on our part, any failure by us to comply with these Terms or our Privacy Policy or breach by us of our duties under applicable laws we will not be legally responsible to you for any loss that you may suffer if a third party gains unauthorised access to any information that you give us.

Delivery

 

For our estimated delivery times, please check the relevant product page on our website, our FAQs or contact us. Whilst we try our best to deliver your items within the estimated delivery timescale, this may not always be possible, and we are not liable for any delay.

We use third party service providers at our discretion to deliver your products. If you want to discuss alternative delivery options, please contact us before you place your order.

 

Delivery of the goods will take place when we deliver them to the address that you gave to us (either directly, or by leaving it in a safe place or with a neighbour). You are responsible for the goods once we have delivered them to you.

Nature of the goods

 

Some of our products are perishable and have a natural lifespan. For more information about how to care for your items, please see the Care Guidance section within the product pages.

The Consumer Rights Act 2015 gives you certain legal rights (also known as ‘statutory rights’). For example, the goods should:

 

- be of satisfactory quality;

 

- be fit for purpose; and

 

- match the description, sample or model.

We must provide you with goods that comply with your legal rights.

Any goods sold:

 

- at discount prices;

 

- as remnants; or

 

- as substandard;

 

will be identified and sold as such. Please check that they are of a satisfactory quality for their intended use.

If we can’t supply certain goods (because, for example, our suppliers haven’t supplied components to us) we may need to substitute them with alternative goods of equal or better standard and value. In this case:

 

- we will aim to let you know if we intend to do this but this may not always be possible; and

 

- you can refuse to accept such substitutes, in which case we will offer you a refund or a replacement and let you know how long such an offer remains open for.

The packaging of the goods may be different from that shown on the website.

While we try to make sure that all weights, sizes and measurements set out on the site are as accurate as possible, there may be a small tolerance of up to 10% in such weights, sizes and measurements. We use natural pigments to colour our products and therefore there may also be variations in colour from the image shown online.

 

Please ensure that you check all the components before giving them to a child to ensure their safety. Children should be supervised at all times whilst using our products.. For more detailed safety guidance, please check the relevant information in the product description.

Nothing in this document affects your legal rights under the Consumer Rights Act 2015 (also known as ‘statutory rights’). You may also have other rights in law.

Your right to cancel and return

 

Except in respect of bespoke items, you have the right to change your mind within 14 days from when you receive your items.

To exercise this right to cancel, please email us at playspirations@gmail.com within those 14 days. You don’t have to give us any reason.

If you do change your mind, please send back the goods (at your expense) within 14 days of letting us know that you wish to cancel. We will reimburse to you all payments received by us from you. We will do this within 14 days after the day we received the items back from you. We may make a deduction from the reimbursement for loss in value of any goods supplied, if the loss is the result of unnecessary handling by you.

Other than for defective products, returns outside the time frame set out above may be accepted at our sole discretion.
