3. Our contract with you

3.1 How we will accept your order. 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.

3.2 If we cannot accept your order. If we are unable to accept your order, we will inform you of this by email and will not charge you for the product. 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 deadline you have specified.

3.3 Your order number. We will assign an order number to your order and tell you what it is when we accept your order. It will help us if you can tell us the order number whenever you contact us about your order.

4. Our products

4.1 Products may vary slightly from their pictures. 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. Your product may vary slightly from those images.

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

5. Providing the products

5.1 Delivery costs. The costs of delivery will be as displayed to you on our website.

5.2 When we will provide the products. We aim to deliver the products to you as soon as reasonably possible and in any event within 30 business days after the day on which we accept your order or we will either contact you with an estimated delivery date or update the website with additional information, or post additional information on our Social Media accounts.

5.3 We are not responsible for delays outside our control. 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.

5.4 If you are not at home when the product is delivered. If no one is available at your address to take delivery and the products cannot be posted through your letterbox, the mail provider will leave you a note informing you of how to rearrange delivery or collect the products from a local depot.

5.5 If you do not re-arrange delivery. If, after a failed delivery, you do not re-arrange delivery of the products 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.

5.6 When you become responsible for the goods. A product which is goods will be your responsibility from the time we deliver the product to the address you gave us.

5.7 When you own goods. You own a product which is goods once we have received payment in full.

5.8 What will happen if you do not give required information to us. We may need certain information from you so that we can supply the products to you, for example, an accurate delivery address. If so, this will have been stated in the description of the products on our website. We will contact you in writing to ask for this information. If you do not give us this information within a reasonable time of us asking for it, or if you give us incomplete or incorrect information, we may either end the contract or make an additional charge of a reasonable sum to compensate us for any extra work that is required as a result. We will not be responsible for supplying the products late if this is caused by you not giving us the information we need within a reasonable time of us asking for it.

5.9 Liability for Import, Export Taxes, Duties and other Charges and Fees. We are not and cannot be responsible or liable for any Import or Export Taxes, Duties, or Charges and Fees of any kind, in any country, which may be levied on the goods purchased from us. All Import or Export Taxes, Duties, or Charges and Fees of any kind are the sole responsibility of the customer.

6. Our Refunds and Returns Policy

How long do I have to change my mind? You have 28 days after the day you (or someone you nominate) receives the goods to change your mind.

Tell us you want to return a product. Please let us know if you want to return the products by emailing us at zzz@sleepthiefbaby.com. Please provide your name, home address, details of the order and, where available, your phone number and email address.

Returning products. You will be provided with the appropriate Return Address.

We will pay the costs of return:

(a) if the products are faulty;

(b) if you are returning products because we have told you of an upcoming material 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.

How we will refund you.

We will refund you the price you paid for the products including delivery costs (if applicable above), by the method you used for payment in line with the timeframe detailed below. However, we may make deductions from the price, as described below.

Deductions from refunds if you are exercising your right to change your mind. If you are exercising your right to change your mind:

(a) We may reduce your refund of the price (excluding delivery costs) to reflect any reduction in the value of the goods, if this has been caused by your 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 repay 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.

When your refund will be made.

We will make any refunds due to you as soon as possible. If you are exercising your right to change your mind then:

(a) 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.

(b) In all other cases, your refund will be made within 14 days of your telling us you have changed your mind.

7. Our rights to end the contract

7.1 We may end the contract if you break it. We may end the contract for a product at any time by writing to you if:

  • you do not make any payment to us when it is due;
  • you do not, within a reasonable time of us asking for it, provide us with information that is necessary for us to provide the products, for example, the delivery address; or
  • you do not, within a reasonable time, allow us to deliver the products to you.

7.2 You must compensate us if you break the contract. If we end the contract in the situations set out above, we will refund any money you have paid in advance for products we have not provided but we may deduct or charge you compensation for the net costs we will incur as a result of your breaking the contract.

8. If there is a problem with the product

8.1 How to tell us about problems. If you have any questions or complaints about the product, please contact us. You can email our customer service team at zzz@sleepthiefbaby.com.

8.2 Your obligation to return rejected products. If you wish to exercise your legal rights to reject products you must post them back to us. We will pay the costs of postage. Please email us at zzz@sleepthiefbaby.com for a return label or to arrange collection.

9. Price and payment

9.1 Where to find the price for the product. The price of the product (which includes VAT, where applicable) 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 9.3 below for what happens if we discover an error in the price of the product you order.

9.2 We will pass on changes in the rate of VAT. If there is applicable VAT on the products, and 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.

9.3 What happens if we got the price wrong. 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.

9.4 When you must pay and how you must pay. We accept payment all major debit and credit cards. You must pay for the products before we dispatch them.

10. Our responsibility for loss or damage suffered by you

10.1 We are responsible to you for foreseeable loss and damage caused by us. 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.

10.2 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; for breach of your legal rights in relation to the products and for defective products under the Consumer Protection Act 1987.

10.3 We are not liable for business losses. We only supply the products for domestic and private use. If you use the products for any commercial, business or re-sale purpose we will have no liability to you for any loss of profit, loss of business, business interruption, or loss of business opportunity.

11. How we may use your personal information

How we may use your personal information. We will only use your personal information as set out in our Privacy Policy.

12. Other important terms

12.1 We may transfer this agreement to someone else. 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.

12.2 Nobody else has any rights under this contract. This contract is between you and us. No other person shall have any rights to enforce any of its terms.

12.3 If a court finds part of this contract illegal, the rest will continue in force. Each of the paragraphs of these terms operates separately. If any court or relevant authority decides that any of them are unlawful, the remaining paragraphs will remain in full force and effect.

12.4 Even if we delay in enforcing this contract, we can still enforce it later. If we do not insist immediately that you do anything you are required to do under these terms, or if we delay in taking steps against you in respect of your breaking this contract, that will not mean that you do not have to do those things and it will not prevent us taking steps against you at a later date. For example, if you miss a payment and we do not chase you but we continue to provide the products, we can still require you to make the payment at a later date.

12.5 Which laws apply to this contract and where you may bring legal proceedings. These terms are governed by English law and you can bring legal proceedings in respect of the products in the English courts. If you live in Scotland you can bring legal proceedings in respect of the products in either the Scottish or the English courts. If you live in Northern Ireland you can bring legal proceedings in respect of the products in either the Northern Irish or the English courts.
