1. Product Descriptions on our Website

1.1 We will take all reasonable care to ensure that all Product Descriptions are correct at the time when the relevant information was first entered on to the website. We have made every effort to display as accurately as possible the appearances, colours, textures or finishes of our Products. What you see will depend on your computer equipment, screen or monitor and we are therefore unable to guarantee that a Product's images are an accurate representation of the actual merchandise. Please refer to our  Returns Policy  if you are unhappy with your Order.

 

2. Order process

2.1 Orchard Clothing Ltd. takes all reasonable care, in so far as possible, to keep the details of your Order and payment secure, but in the absence of negligence on our part we will not be liable for any loss you may suffer if a third party procures unauthorised access to any Personal Information you provide when accessing or placing an Order on the Website.

2.2 The technical steps to place your Order and create a contract of sale between you and us are, as follows: 
      a) You place an Order on the Website by pressing the ‘Place Order’ button at the end of the checkout process. You will be guided through the process of placing an Order by a series of simple instructions on the Website.  
      b) We will send you an email confirming your Order which will detail the Product(s) that you have ordered. This email does not constitute an acceptance of your Order by us. 
      c) We will send you a dispatch confirmation email when your item is dispatched from us or our supplier. Alternatively, in relation to our ‘Collect' service, we will send you an email to confirm that your Order is ready for collection. Upon sending either of these emails, your Order will be taken to have been accepted by us unless we have notified you that we do not accept your Order, or you have cancelled it.  
      d) Subject to us having accepted your Order, we will then arrange for delivery of it to you at your nominated address or make it available for collection on the date and time nominated by you.

2.3 The contract between you and Orchard Clothing Ltd. will be concluded in English and subject to the laws of England and the jurisdiction of the English courts.

2.4 We shall be entitled to supply Products ordered as part of one Order in installments and each installment shall be deemed to constitute a separate contract between you and us. This may mean that Products are dispatched or available for collection separately. We also reserve the right to supply only part of an Order.

2.5 Non-acceptance of your Order (or parts of your Order) may be due to any one or more of the following non-exhaustive reasons: 
      a) a Product you ordered is out of stock; 
      b) we are unable to obtain authorisation for your payment; 
      c) we have identified an error with a Product Description; 
      d) there is a system or procurement failure; 

 

2.6 Orchard Clothing Ltd. is a reseller of goods from third party suppliers; therefore, if we are unable to procure an item you have ordered with us due to a discontinuation of the product, we will cancel and refund you as soon as this is brought to our attention and notify you via the contact email you provided when placing your order with us.

2.7 Further to 2.6 (above), if Orchard Clothing Ltd. need to place an item you have ordered on a back-order for delivery at a future date (thus leading to part-delivery of your order (see 2.4)), a full refund for the cost of the product is available upon request, along with the understanding that this item will be cancelled. Orchard Clothing Ltd. will not be held responsible for any consequential loss caused by non-fulfilment of these products due to extraneous circumstances (supplier stock levels) out of our control. We endeavour to inform our customers of any possible delays with their order, however, if an error has occurred and the customer does not receive notification of any delays, refunds for the products are available upon request along with the understanding that the product will be cancelled from your order.
