3. Order processing

3.1. 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.

3.3. We may not always be able to accept your order and we may choose not to accept your order at our sole discretion. This might be because the product is 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 product or because we are unable to meet a delivery address or deadline you have specified.

3.4. If we are unable to accept your order, we will inform you of this as soon as reasonably possible. If any payment has already been taken you will be reimbursed in full for any sums paid to us for that order.

4. Our products and services

4.1. Each product purchased is sold subject to its description which sets out additional conditions related to that product including, without limitation, terms and conditions concerning estimated delivery dates and times, any warranties, after-sales service and any guarantees.

4.2. We will take all reasonable care to ensure that all details, descriptions and prices of products appearing on our website are correct at the time when the relevant information was entered into the system. Although we aim to keep the website as up to date as possible, the information including the product descriptions appearing on the website at a particular time may not always reflect the position exactly at the moment you place an order. We reserve the right to change specifications, product descriptions, product quality and pricing displayed on our website or in our stores at any time without notice.

4.3. The images of the products 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 products.

4.4. The packaging of the product may vary from that shown in images on our website.

4.5. If we are making the product to measurements you have given us you are responsible for ensuring that these measurements are correct.

5. Your rights to make changes

If you wish to make a change to your order please contact us as soon as possible. We will let you know if the change is possible. If it is possible we will let you know about any changes to the price of the product, the timing of supply or anything else which would be necessary as a result of your requested change and ask you to confirm whether you wish to go ahead with the change. If we cannot make the change or the consequences of making the change are unacceptable to you, you may want to end the contract (see Clause 8 - Your rights to end the contract).

6. Our rights to make changes

6.1. We may make minor changes to your order to reflect changes in relevant laws and regulatory requirements.

6.2. In addition, we may make other changes to the products or changes to these Terms after you have placed an order, but if we do so we will notify you and you may then contact us to end the contract before the changes take effect and receive a refund for any products paid for but not received.

7. Delivering the products 

7.1. During the order process we will let you know when we will provide the products to you. If the products are goods we will deliver them to you as soon as reasonably possible and we will contact you with an estimated delivery date within 30 days after the day on which we accept your order.

7.2. If our supply of the products 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 products you have paid for but not received.

7.3. If you have asked to collect the products from one of our stores, you can collect them from us at any time during our store opening hours (opening hours vary – for further details please contact us). 

7.4. If you do not collect the products from us as arranged or if, after a failed delivery to you, you do not re-arrange delivery or collect them from a delivery depot we will contact you for further instructions and may charge you for storage costs and any further delivery costs. If, despite our reasonable efforts, we are unable to contact you or re-arrange delivery or collection we may end the contract.

8. Your rights to end the contract 

8.1. Your rights when you end the contract will depend on what you have bought, whether there is anything wrong with it, how we are performing and when you decide to end the contract:

8.1.1. Faulty Products 
Under the Consumer Rights Act 2015, if any product delivered to you is faulty or unfit for purpose, provided you notify us within the first 30 days of purchase, you can ask us to send you a full refund or, if you prefer, an exchange or replacement. 

8.1.2. Something we have done wrong 
If you are ending the contract for a reason set out at (a) to (e) below the contract will end immediately and we will refund you in full for any product(s) which have not been provided.
The reasons are:
- we have told you about an upcoming change to the product or these Terms which you do not agree to;
- we have told you about an error in the price or description of the product you have ordered and you do not wish to proceed;
- there is a risk that supply of the product may be significantly delayed because of events outside of our control; 
- we have suspended supply of the products for technical reasons, or notify you we are going to suspend them for technical reasons, in each case for a period of more than 3 months; or 
- you have a legal right to end the contract because of something we have done wrong. 

8.1.3. Change of Mind Policy 
Under the Consumer Contracts (Information, Cancellation and Additional Charges) Regulations 2013, you have the legal right to cancel your purchase during the cancellation period. The cancellation period begins on the date that the contract is formed (the date when we accept your order in accordance with Clause 3.1) and continues until the end of 14 days starting on the day after you receive the product.

You do not have a right to change your mind in respect of:
(a) any product which become mixed inseparably with other items after their delivery;

(b)  product(s) that are made to order, made to measure, custom made, bespoke or clearly personalised; and 

(c)  gift cards, gift vouchers and eGift cards. 

9. How to end the contract with us 

9.1. To end the contract with us, please let us know by doing one of the follow: Call us on +44 0131 220 5811 or email us at info@aetla.co.uk. Please provide your full name, home address, details of the order (including order number) and, where applicable, your phone number and email address.

9.2. If you end the contract for any reason after products have been dispatched to you or you have received them, you must return them to us. You must either return the goods in person to where you bought them, post them back to us at 46 St. Stephen Street, Edinburgh, EH3 5AL or (if they are not suitable for posting) allow us to collect them from you. Please call customer services on +44 0131 220 5811 or email us at info@aetla.co.uk for a return label or to arrange collection. If you are exercising your right to change your mind you must send off the goods within 14 days of telling us you wish to end the contract.

9.3. We will pay the costs of return: 

(a) if the products are faulty; or 

(b) if you are ending the contract because we have told you of an upcoming change to the product or these terms, an error in pricing or description, a delay in delivery due to events outside our control or because you have a legal right to do so as a result of something we have done wrong,

In all other circumstances (including where you are exercising your right to change your mind) you must pay the costs of return. 

9.4. If you are responsible for the costs of return and we are collecting the product from you, we will charge you the direct cost to us of collection.

9.5. We will refund you the price you paid for the products including delivery costs, by the method you used for payment. However, we may make deductions from the price, as described below:

(a) We may reduce your refund of the price (excluding delivery costs) to reflect any reduction in the value of the product(s), if this has been caused by you handling them in a way which would not be permitted in a shop. If we refund you the price paid before we are able to inspect the goods and later discover you have handled them in an unacceptable way, you must pay us an appropriate amount.

(b) The maximum refund for delivery costs will be the costs of delivery by the least expensive delivery method we offer. For example, if we offer delivery of a product within 3-5 days at one cost but you choose to have the product delivered within 24 hours at a higher cost, then we will only refund what you would have paid for the cheaper delivery option.
9.6. We will make any refunds due to you as soon as possible. If you are exercising your right to change your mind then your refund will be made within 14 days from the day on which we receive the product back from you or, if earlier, the day on which you provide us with evidence that you have sent the product back to us. For information about how to return a product to us, see Clause 9.2.

10. Our rights to end the contract 

10.1. We may end the contract for a product at any time by writing to you if:
    (a) [you do not make any payment to us when it is due and you still do not make payment within 10 days of us reminding you that payment is due];
      (b) you do not, within a reasonable time of us asking for it, provide us with information that is necessary for us to provide the product(s); or 
        (c) you do not, within a reasonable time, allow us to deliver the product(s) to you or collect the product(s) from us. 

          11. Price and Payment

            11.1. You must pay the full price of your order before we will send any part of it. We accept online payment in a secure environment by credit or debit card, and Apple Pay. We currently accept Visa, Visa Debit, Visa Electron, Maestro and MasterCard. All prices are shown in pounds sterling.
              11.2. The price of the product (which includes VAT) will be the price indicated on the order pages when you placed your order. We take all reasonable care to ensure that the price of the product advised to you is correct. However please see Clause 11.3 for what happens if we discover an error in the price of the product you order.
                11.3. If the rate of VAT changes between your order date and the date we supply the product, we will adjust the rate of VAT that you pay, unless you have already paid for the product in full before the change in the rate of VAT takes effect.
                  11.4. It is always possible that, despite our best efforts, some of the products we sell may be incorrectly priced. We will normally check prices before accepting your order so that, where the product's correct price at your order date is less than our stated price at your order date, we will charge the lower amount. If the product's correct price at your order date is higher than the price stated to you, we will contact you for your instructions before we accept your order. If we accept and process your order where a pricing error is obvious and unmistakeable and could reasonably have been recognised by you as a mispricing, we may end the contract, refund you any sums you have paid and require the return of any goods provided to you.

                    12. Limitation of Liability

                      12.1. If we fail to comply with these Terms, we are responsible for loss or damage you suffer that is a foreseeable result of our breaking this contract or our failing to use reasonable care and skill, but we are not responsible for any loss or damage that is not foreseeable. Loss or damage is foreseeable if either it is obvious that it will happen or if, at the time the contract was made, both we and you knew it might happen, for example, if you discussed it with us during the sales process.
                        12.2. We shall have no liability for losses, damages, costs, claims and / or expenses which arise as a consequence (whether direct or otherwise) of: 
                            12.2.1. information provided by you being incomplete, inaccurate, illegible, out of sequence, misleading, missing, late or deficient in any respect whatsoever; and / or 
                              12.2.2. any other failure attributable to you and / or a third party.
                              12.3. We do not exclude or limit in any way our liability to you where it would be unlawful to do so. This includes liability for death or personal injury caused by our negligence or the negligence of our employees, agents or subcontractors; for fraud or fraudulent misrepresentation or for breach of your legal rights in relation to the products.

                              13. Data Protection 

                              We believe strongly in protecting your privacy and personal data. Any personal data collected and processed by us is governed by our privacy policy. Please read our privacy policy for further information on how we process your personal data. 

                              14. Severability 

                              If any provision of these Terms shall be deemed unlawful, void or for any reason unenforceable, then that provision shall be deemed severable (deleted) from these Terms and this will not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining provisions.

                              15. Assignation 

                                15.1. We may transfer our rights and obligations under these Terms to another organisation. We will always tell you in writing if this happens and we will ensure that the transfer will not affect your rights under the contract.

                                15.2. You may only transfer your rights or your obligations under these terms to another person with our prior written consent.  

                                  16. Third Party Rights 

                                  These Terms do not give rise to any rights under the Contract (Third Party Rights) (Scotland) Act 2017 for any third party to enforce or otherwise invoke any term of this agreement.

                                  17. Intellectual Property Rights 

                                  The content on our website including all jewellery design, copyright, trademarks and other intellectual property rights it contains, including the name Aetla is the sole property of Aetla or our licensors.

                                  18. Waiver 

                                  If we fail, at any time, to insist that you comply with your obligations under these Terms, or if we do not exercise any of our rights under these Terms, this does not constitute a waiver of such rights and does not mean that you are free to ignore your obligations. We can still require you to comply at a later date.

                                  19. Entire Agreement

                                  These Terms and any document that we have referred to within them (including via hyperlink) represent the entire agreement between us and you and takes precedence over any other previous agreement or representation made to you whether oral or in writing. You acknowledge that, in entering into a contract with us, you have not relied on any representation or promise given by us or anyone else except as set out in these Terms.

                                  20. Governing Law and Jurisdiction  

                                  These Terms and any dispute or claim arising out of or in connection with it or its subject matter or formation (including non-contractual disputes or claims) shall be governed by Scots Law and the courts of Scotland shall have exclusive jurisdiction.
