Sales Terms

By placing an order for Products, you agree to the terms set out in these Sales Terms:

A. Registration

  1. In order to purchase Products from this website, you need to register your details with us. On registration, you must provide us with accurate and complete registration information and it is your responsibility to inform us of any changes to that information (to your email address in particular) by updating your details in the My Account page.
  2. On first registration you will choose a password which together with your email address forms your ID. None of our employees or agents will ever ask you for this password. Do not disclose this password to anyone under any circumstances whatsoever.
  3. You are responsible for all use of your ID and for preventing unauthorised use of your ID. If you believe there has been any breach of security such as the disclosure, theft or unauthorised use of your ID or any payment information you must notify us immediately by contacting us at enquiries@hollandparkpress.co.uk
  4. Your registration does not in itself entitle you to purchase Products from us and we are not obliged to accept any or all orders that you place with us.

B. Formation of contract

All orders for Products are offers made by you to purchase such products and shall be considered as accepted only when you receive a confirmation email from us to the effect that your order has been processed and your Products have been dispatched. This will form a contract, which incorporates these terms and conditions, between you and us (the “Contract”).

C. Prices

  1. All prices for the Products are inclusive of taxes but exclusive of delivery charges.
  2. The price of a Product is the price displayed on the day of your order.
  3. All Products are subject to availability.

D. Payment

  1. Payment authorisation must be provided by you on the date that you place an order for any Products.
  2. Payment must be made by credit/debit card. We accept payment by MasterCard, Visa Credit, Visa Debit, Maestro (in the UK), Visa Electron, Solo, JCB, Commercial cards and American Express. Payment will be debited from your account before dispatch of the Products to you.
  3. Upon receiving your order we will carry out a standard pre-authorisation check on your payment card to ensure there are sufficient funds in order to complete the transaction. No payment is debited from your card during this pre-authorisation check.
  4. On some occasions, we are required by the card issuer to perform additional security checks on the payment card, which can delay the order until the card has been authorised.
  5. You confirm that the credit/debit card that is being used is yours and that you therefore have full entitlement to use the card to purchase the ordered Products.
  6. All product prices and delivery charges are shown in UK pounds sterling. Your payment card company will perform any currency conversion, if necessary.

  5. We have no control over these charges and cannot predict what they may be. Customs policies vary widely from country to country, so you should contact your local customs office for further information.
  6. When ordering from us, you are considered the importer of record and must comply with all laws and regulations of the country in which you are receiving the Products. You are responsible for notifying your local customs office of your purchase. Please be aware that cross-border deliveries are subject to opening and inspection by customs authorities.
  7. Average delivery times will be 10 to 15 days.
  8. All delivery times are estimates only and, while we will endeavour to avoid delay, we will not be liable to you for any loss or damage arising from delay in delivery.
  9. If we are unable to perform the whole or part of the Contract due to any cause or event beyond our reasonable control we may, at our option, by notice in writing to you, cancel or suspend the Contract in whole or in part without liability and without prejudice to our rights to receive payment of the price for all Products previously delivered.
  10. If you receive the wrong Products or Products are damaged in transit, you must contact us within 28 calendar days of the delivery date and confirm to us what has happened. Please see also to the terms and conditions of our Cancellation and Returns policy.
