6.2. You may not use alternative email addresses to refer themselves or refer friends/family that use the same delivery and/or billing address as you.
6.3. The mass recruitment of referrals who do not fall within your friends and family category, referred by any means including via a website, a blog, online advertising or magazines or forums, or by using the names of brands which work in partnership with the Website or by reproducing a part of the Website's catalogue, is strictly prohibited and shall not be deemed a Referral. However, you are not limited on the number of friends and family that you refer to the Website, so long as they genuinely are friends and family.
6.4. You may also refer friends and family via Facebook or Twitter, by clicking on the appropriate link on the 'Share With Friends' referral section on the Website. Please note that this will take you to the Facebook or Twitter website (as appropriate) so you should be aware of the terms and conditions applicable to the use of those websites.
6.5. You may be eligible for an account credit ("Account Credit") for each Referral that you make to us. Account Credits can be used by you for redemption against purchases made on the Website.
6.6. In order for a Referral to generate an Account Credit, the following must apply:
- the individual to whom the Referral has been sent must: (i) not already be a customer or have previously purchased anything from the Website in the past; (ii) go on to make a purchase from the Website;
- the Prospect must make a purchase from the Website within 180 days of being sent the Referral and must not return their purchase within the allowed returns period (as set out in these terms and conditions). Where the Prospect makes a purchase containing multiple items, an Account Credit will be awarded unless the Prospect returns all of the items ordered; and
- as stated above, the Referral must be to a friend or family member.
6.7. The following additional terms and conditions relate to Account Credits:
- Account Credits can only be issued to and redeemed by a customer who has a valid account.
- Account Credits can only be redeemed by the customer to which the Account Credit was originally issued, and cannot be transferred or assigned to any other person.
- Account Credits can only be redeemed at the time at which an Order is made by following the instructions provided to you through the Website from time to time. An Account Credit cannot be used in relation to an Order after the Order has been placed.
- Account Credits usually have an expiry date which will be communicated to you when the Account Credit is issued. Typically, Account Credits will expire 12 months after the date of issue, unless otherwise notified. You must redeem the Account Credit before the expiry date (if applicable) or it will expire. No replacement Account Credit will be issued for an expired Account Credit.
- There is no restriction on the total sum of Account Credits you can accumulate, however, you may not collect more than one Account Credit per Prospect. You may use any number of Account Credits, up to the total value of an Order, when making a purchase. This excludes delivery charges which cannot be paid for with Account Credits.
- Account Credits may be redeemed against Orders which include promotional offers from Vulpine.
- If you return an item purchased using an Account Credit, Vulpine will issue the refund as an Account Credit of the same value used, with the remainder due refunded to your payment card or PayPal or Amazon account (as applicable), where part payment was made via your payment card or PayPal or Amazon account.
- Account Credits have no cash redemption value and you shall not be entitled to any payment from Vulpine in respect of redemption (or expiry) of an Account Credit.
- One account is permitted per person. Any person found to have multiple accounts will forfeit all accrued Account Credits and his/her account of the Website.
- Vulpine may at its sole discretion deem an Account Credit void.
- If there are any other restrictions or conditions applicable to the Account Credit, these will be notified to you at the time of issue or redemption.
6.8. The value of the Account Credit for each Referral is as set out on the Website from time to time. Please note that we reserve the right to amend the value of an Account Credit as set out on the Website from time to time. We calculate the value of an individual Account Credit due to you as at the date on which the referred individual makes their first purchase, which could be a different value from the amount that was stated in the 'Share With Friends' referral section on the Website on the date when you originally sent the Referral. We will send you an email as soon as the referred individual has made their first purchase which will set out the value of the Account Credit as of that date so you are clear how much your Account Credit is worth.
6.9. If Vulpine should become aware of any breach by a customer in the use of the referral system, including any breach of the referral terms set out in this section, it reserves the right to take any steps it feels is appropriate, which may include without limitation, the deletion of the customer's account and/or removal of Account Credits from the customer's account.
6.10. Vulpine reserves the right to terminate any referral rewards scheme at any time and will not credit any outstanding referred accounts that qualify for credit under the scheme after the scheme's termination. Vulpine will however honour any Account Credits that are valid as at the date of the scheme termination, unless otherwise notified to the contrary.
7. Placing an Order
7.1. Products may be ordered by clicking on the items you wish to purchase and then following the prompts that will appear on-screen. You may check and correct any input errors in your order ("Order") up until the point at which you submit your order to us by clicking the "Place Order & Pay" button on the checkout page.
7.2. If you click on the "Place Order & Pay" button Vulpine will treat this as an offer by you to purchase the Products subject to these terms & conditions. You are responsible for ensuring the accuracy of your Order. When you place an Order we will send you an Order acknowledgement email containing all of the details of your Order. This is not an acceptance by us of your Order but is simply a confirmation that we have received your offer to purchase the Products. All Orders are subject to acceptance by us. We are not obliged to accept your Order and may, at our discretion, decline to accept any Order.
7.3. Non-acceptance of an Order may be as a result of (but is not limited to) one of the following: the Product ordered being out of stock; our inability to obtain the authorisation of payment; the identification of an error within the Product information, including price and promotion (see further below); or you not being aged 18 or over.
7.4. You do however, acknowledge that by clicking on the "Place Order & Pay" button, you enter into an obligation to pay for the Products and at this point you will be charged for the total value of the Order. This amount will be refunded to you in full in the event that we are unable to fulfil your Order for any reason. You will receive your refund as soon as possible and, in any case, within 14 days of being informed that we are unable to fulfil your Order.
7.5. Our acceptance of your Order will take place when we send you a despatch confirmation email ("Despatch Confirmation"). If you have ordered Products, this will confirm that the Product(s) have been despatched. The contract between you and us in relation to the Product(s) ordered ("Contract") will only be formed when we send you the Despatch Confirmation. After entering into the Contract, we will be under a legal duty to supply you with goods that are in conformity with the Contract.
7.6. The Contract will relate only to the Product(s) whose despatch or supply we have confirmed in the Despatch Confirmation. We will not be obliged to supply any other Product(s) which may have been part of your Order until the despatch or confirmation of such Product(s) has been confirmed in a separate Despatch Confirmation.
7.7. In the event that an item is out of stock, you will be informed as soon as practically possible. Where all items in an Order are unavailable, the Order relating to the unavailable item will be cancelled and a full refund will be made including any delivery charges. Where some items in an Order are unavailable, those that are available will be despatched and a refund will be made for those that are unavailable. Delivery charges will still apply (see the Delivery and Returns page on the Website for detail). You will receive any applicable refund as soon as possible and, in any case, within 14 days of being informed of the unavailability of any items.
8. Pricing and Payment
8.1. The price of the Products shall be the price listed on the Website on the date of your Order.
8.2. Prices are inclusive of VAT but exclusive of delivery charges which will be automatically added to the total amount due once you have selected your delivery destination and chosen delivery method. Delivery charges are as set out in our Delivery and Returns page on the Website. Please note that VAT will not be charged where you are purchasing Products from a territory where VAT does not apply or which is VAT exempt. Not all Products are eligible for VAT and the rate of VAT may vary by delivery destination.
8.3. All prices displayed on the Website are quoted in UK Pounds. Prices must be paid in full, including delivery charges, except where discounts are offered as detailed on the Website.
8.4. Prices and delivery costs are liable to change at any time, but changes will not affect Orders in respect of which we have already sent you a Despatch Confirmation.
8.5. The Website contains a large number of Products and it is always possible that, despite our best efforts, some of the Products listed on the Website may be incorrectly priced. We will normally verify prices as part of our despatch or confirmation procedures so that, where a Product's correct price is less than our stated price, we will charge you the lower amount. If a Product’s correct price is higher than the price stated on the Website, we will normally, at our discretion, either contact you for instructions before despatching the Product, or reject your Order and notify you of such rejection.
8.6. Payment for all Orders must be made by credit or debit card or via Paypal or Amazon account on the checkout page. We accept payment by most major credit and debit cards, including Visa, Mastercard and Visa Debit.
8.7. You should be aware that online payment transactions may be subject to validation checks by your card issuer and we are not responsible if your card issuer declines to authorise payment for any reason. Please note, it is possible that your card issuer may charge you an online handling fee or processing fee. We are not responsible for this.
8.8. You guarantee that you are fully authorised to use the credit/debit card supplied, or the PayPal or Amazon account used, for the purposes of paying for your Order and that this credit/debit card or PayPal or Amazon account has sufficient available funds to cover all of the purchase price of the Products.
8.9. From time to time we may run promotions where we issue discount codes. Discount codes will usually be emailed to you or advertised on the Website. These can be used in part-payment of the price of Product(s) ordered online, subject to the terms and conditions under which they were issued (as indicated in our relevant promotion from which you got the code). Discount codes can only be used during the period of validity or for the number of uses stated and only in respect of the relevant Product(s) stated. We may also set a minimum spend against which a discount code can be used. Discount codes cannot be redeemed for cash. Only one discount code may be used per transaction, unless otherwise stated.
9. Restrictions on the Number of Units Purchased
9.1. The number of units of any particular Product that you may purchase may be limited to a specific number of units, if applicable this will be stated on the Website. Attempts to purchase more than this amount may result in your entire Order being rejected. For the avoidance of doubt, placing single or multiple Orders where the total number of units purchased exceeds the stated amount of a given item is not permitted.
10.1. Your Order will be fulfilled by the delivery date set out in the Despatch Confirmation or, if no delivery date is specified, then within 30 days after the date of the Despatch Confirmation, unless there are exceptional circumstances. Until the point of Despatch an estimate of the despatch date is provided in the “My Account Orders" section of the Website.
10.2. Your Order will be delivered to the delivery address you specify when placing your Order, unless you opt (where available) to collect it from one of the collection points offered from time to time.
10.3. A current description of how collection works can be found in the Collect + FAQ on the Website. If you opt for the collection service, your entire Order will be delivered to your chosen collection point and will be available for collection by you from the date notified to you by the applicable Collect + location. When collecting your Order, you should take with you the Despatch Confirmation along with some form of identification (see the Collect + FAQ on the Website for a list of acceptable identification).
10.4. If your delivery address is geographically remote, for example certain outlying islands or other isolated locations, it is possible that we may not be able to deliver there. If that is the case, we will notify you before we accept your Order. We reserve the right not to deliver to any country that is prohibited by applicable export laws.
10.5. Deliveries are made by Royal Mail (within the United Kingdom) or other national mail service, or courier. It is not possible to specify a precise time at which a delivery will take place. Please note that the courier may require deliveries to be signed for.
10.6. Deliveries will be made to your door. Our courier will not be responsible for any additional carrying, unpacking or positioning of Product(s). If you order a large, heavy or bulky Product, you should check carefully, before ordering, that its dimensions (allowing for packaging) will allow it to pass freely through the doorways, corridors and, if relevant, stairways of the delivery address.
10.7. Products comprised within the same Order cannot be delivered to different addresses.
10.8. Products delivered in the United Kingdom with a value of £15 and over will usually be sent via tracked delivery and you will be provided with a tracking number (see below for further detail here). Products delivered in the United Kingdom with a value of under £15 will usually not be sent via tracked delivery.
10.9. Lost packages:
- A delivery tracking number will usually be given (you can find this in the Despatch Confirmation or by visiting the "My Account > Orders" section of the Website) so that you can track the progress of your Order. You should allow up to 24 hours from the receipt of the Despatch Confirmation for the tracking number to be available, although this may be available sooner.
- If you cannot trace your Order via this tracking number you must get in touch with us via the Website, on email: firstname.lastname@example.org, or go to the courier's website (if applicable and as detailed on the Despatch Confirmation).
- We will begin an enquiry as soon as is practicable after you contact us, and you will be updated with any progress in tracing the Order by email. Please note that it may take up to (and in some circumstances beyond) 21 working days for the postal service or courier to trace the Order. If the Order is traced it will then be sent to you in accordance with our normal delivery procedure. If the Order cannot be traced, we will notify you and either send you a replacement Order free of charge, or where this is not possible (due to the Product(s) being out of stock, for example) proceed with a full refund for your Order (including delivery charges if any).
11. Delivery Across International Borders
11.1. If your Order crosses an international border, it may be opened and inspected by customs authorities.
11.2. If your Order is for delivery outside the UK/EU, it may be subject to import duties and taxes. You will be responsible for payment of any such import duties and taxes. Please note that we have no control over these charges and cannot predict their amount. Please contact your local customs office for further information before placing your Order.
11.3. Please also note that you must comply with all applicable laws and regulations of the country for which the Order is destined. We will not be liable for any breach by you of any such laws.
11.4. By confirming your purchase, you agree that, where applicable, you will act as the importer of record for any products purchased and hereby authorise North Lane Group to nominate a customs agent or their delegated sub-agents to act as your direct or indirect representative.

12. Risk and Ownership
12.1. Risk of damage to or loss of the Products will pass to you on delivery at the agreed address. Ownership of the Product(s) ordered will also pass to you on delivery, provided full payment of all sums due in respect of the Product(s), including any delivery charges, has been received.

13.2. To cancel a Contract, you must clearly inform us, preferably:

14. Returns Procedure
14.1. You will need to obtain a return authorisation number ("Return Number") for the Product(s) you wish to return, which you can obtain on the “My Account > Returns” section of the Website. You will need to include the Return Number on the packing slip sent to you with the Product(s) together with your return.
14.2. You must return the Product(s) to us within 14 days after the day of notifying us of the cancellation, in the same condition in which you receive them (which does not interfere with your right to take any reasonable steps to examine the Product(s) and make sure they conform to your Order).
14.3. You have a legal obligation to take reasonable care of the Product(s) while in your possession. Items should be returned with the original branded Product packaging and tags still attached, and the Products must be in an unused condition (except only in the case of Products which have been discovered to be faulty upon use). You should not return Products if (in our reasonable opinion) they have been damaged as a result of fair wear and tear, deliberate damage, accidental damage (by you or a third party other than our couriers), negligence, abnormal working conditions, failure to follow manufacturer instructions, misuse or alteration or repair of the Products without manufacturer approval. [If you have assembled a Product (such as shoes with cleats, for example) and you wish to return it, you must take all reasonable steps to un-assemble the Product (so long as this will not cause damage) before return]. If you fail to comply with this obligation, we may have a right to deduct the cost of any deterioration (due, for example, to your having used the Product(s)), up to the price of the Product(s), from the refund to which you are otherwise entitled.
14.4. To return the Product(s), you should package the parcel securely (making sure you include a note of your name and address and the Return Number (enclosing any returns slip, if we have providedone inside the parcel) and then return it to us by recorded delivery mail or other form of certified mailor, if the Product(s) are too bulky to return by mail, then by a suitable carrier, to the following address: Vulpine Returns c/o Whistl, Rushden 2, Belkin House, Shipton Way, Rushden, NN10 6GL, United Kingdom, or to the address shown on your returns slip if different.
14.5. You are responsible for the risk of returning the Product(s) so we advise you to use a recorded delivery service and take out enough carriage insurance to cover the value of the contents. You should retain the proof of postage until our receipt of the Product(s) is confirmed by email.
14.6. Except in the case of faulty Products, you are responsible for the cost of returning Products.
14.7. If you are returning faulty Products, please ensure there is a copy of the postal cost receipt returned with the faulty Product(s) so that we can reimburse this amount. Please do not return by courier as we will not accept full courier charges unless otherwise agreed by us in writing.
14.8. Details of the consumer rights described above and in Section 13, and an explanation of how to exercise them, are provided in the Despatch Confirmation. Nothing in this Section 14 or Section 13 affects your legal rights.

15.1. If you cancel a Contract between us within the 14-day cooling-off period (see above), we will process any refund due to you as soon as possible and, in any case, within 14 days after the day on which we receive the Product(s) back or, if earlier, the day on which we receive evidence that you have returned the Product(s) to our returns address (see above). We will refund the price paid in full (subject to any deduction we are entitled to make due to your use of or damage to the Product(s)), including the cost of standard delivery, although please note that delivery charges will be refunded only where an entire Order is returned. However, we will not refund your cost of returning the Product(s) to us. If you received any promotional or other discount when you paid, any refund will only reflect the amount you actually paid.
15.2. If the Products have not been despatched from our warehouse at the time you cancel a Contract we will process any refund due to you as soon as possible and, in any case, within 14 days of the email we send you to confirm that we have received and are processing your cancellation request.

16. Faulty Products
16.1. If any Product you order is damaged or faulty when delivered to you or has developed a fault, you may have one or more legal remedies available to you, depending on when you make us aware of the problem, in accordance with your legal rights. If you believe a Product was delivered damaged or faulty or has developed a fault, you should inform us as soon as possible, preferably in writing, giving your name, address and order reference. Nothing in this section affects your legal rights.
