Where it is not possible to accept your order to buy goods of the specification and description at the price indicated, we will advise you by email, and offer to sell you the goods of the specification and description at the price stated in the email and will state in the email the period for which the offer or the price remains valid.
We sometimes issue promotional codes that give benefits such as discounts, free delivery and free gifts. These codes may only be used by the person to whom they are issued, are not transferable. If we find that you were not entitled to use the code or did not meet all the Terms and Conditions of its use after accepting your order, we may reverse the benefit that you obtained.
9/ PAYMENT TERMS
We will take full payment immediately upon placing an order. We accept no liability if a delivery is delayed because you did not give us the correct payment details. If it is not possible to obtain full payment for the goods from you, then we can refuse to process your order and/or suspend any further deliveries to you. This does not affect any other rights we may have.
10/ DELIVERY CHARGES
Delivery charges can be found by adding the respective product(s) to the basket and selecting your country for delivery. Charges are calculated automatically and dependent on the shipping method selected and weight or size of the products.
Our delivery charges are set out clearly on the basket page.
We will deliver the goods to the address you specify for delivery in your order. It is important that this address is accurate. Please be precise about where you would like the goods left if you are out when we deliver. We cannot accept any liability for any loss or damage to the goods once they have been delivered in accordance with your delivery instructions [unless this is caused by our negligence].
We will aim to deliver the goods by or before the date quoted for delivery but delivery times are not guaranteed. If delivery is delayed substantially beyond the estimated time, we will agree a mutually acceptable resolution, including resending the order or a full refund.
You will become the owner of the goods you have ordered when they have been delivered to you. Once goods have been delivered to you, they will be held at your own risk and we will not be liable for their loss or destruction.
Further information can be found on our Frequently Asked Questions.
12/ RISK & OWNERSHIP
Risk of damage to or loss of the goods passes to you at the time of delivery to you. If you choose to use your own courier then the risk passes to you as soon as the goods are handed to your courier. You will only own the goods once they have been successfully delivered.
13/ CANCELLATION RIGHTS
Under The Consumer Contracts [Information, Cancellation and Additional Charges] Regulations 2013 SI 2013/3134 you have the legal right to cancel your order up to 14 calendar days after the day on which you receive your goods. W & D Strings has extended this offer to 60 days from the date of delivery. You do not need to give us any reason for cancelling your contract nor will you have to pay any penalty.
Should you wish to cancel your order, you may contact us via email to request authorisation.
If you have received the goods before you cancel your contract then you must send the goods back to our contact address at your own cost and risk. If you cancel your contract but we have already processed the goods for delivery, you should not use or unpack the goods when they are received by you and you must send the goods back to us at our contact address at your own cost and risk as soon as possible.
Once you have notified us that you are cancelling your contract, and we have received the goods back, we will refund any sum debited by us back to your original payment source within 5 calendar days.
We may make a deduction from your refund for any loss in the value of the goods supplied if the loss is the result of unnecessary handling by you [for example using the goods prior to cancellation].
You shall send back the goods without due delay, not later than 14 days from the day on which you communicate your cancellation from this contract to us.

14/ CANCELLATION BY US
We reserve the right not to process your order if:
