BY USING OUR SITE YOU ACCEPT THESE TERMS
By using our site, you confirm that you accept these terms and that you agree to comply with them. If you do not agree to these terms, you must not use our site. We recommend that you print a copy of these terms for future reference.
OUR RELATIONSHIP WITH THE SELLERS
We cannot give any undertaking, that the products you purchase from an individual seller (a “Seller”) through our site will be of satisfactory quality, and this and any other such warranties (whether express or implied) are disclaimed by us absolutely to the fullest extent permitted by law. This disclaimer does not affect your statutory rights against the Seller.
We do not review or control, and are not responsible in any way for, listings provided by Sellers and at no time do we possess any items offered for sale by Sellers through our site.
YOUR RELATIONSHIP WITH THE SELLERS
All orders of products that you make through our site shall be with the relevant Seller with IWCTE acting as the commercial agent. Each order you place shall be deemed to be an offer by you to purchase the products subject to the individual terms and conditions of the Seller (the “Individual Seller Terms and Conditions”) and the applicable details on the product page.
No order shall be deemed to be accepted by the Seller until we (acting as the commercial agent of the Seller) issue an email acknowledgement of order. We may refuse to process a transaction for any reason or refuse service to anyone at any time at our sole discretion. We will not be liable to you or any third party by reason of so refusing or by reason of unwinding or suspending any transaction after processing has begun. The contract between you and a Seller will relate only to those products notified in the email acknowledgement of order.
Purchases for products from Sellers may only be paid for using the payment methods we make available from time to time through our payment facility. In accepting or otherwise processing your payments related to the purchase of items from Sellers, we act in the capacity as commercial agent of the Seller. In respect of all payment methods, the Seller acknowledges and agrees that the valid payment by you to us for the purchase of item(s) between you and the Seller will satisfy your obligation to pay the Seller for the relevant item(s) and consequently, any debt obligations owed by you to the Seller for the purchase of such items shall be extinguished at that time. You acknowledge that these terms, and/or any transaction made by you via www.itwontcosttheearth.com, do not create or imply any partnership, joint venture or trust relationship between us, you and/or the Seller. The Seller will not seek recourse (legal or otherwise) against you for payment of items if you have validly paid us. All prices shall be shown and payable in pounds sterling. You accept that item prices do not vary according to your location; delivery charges will vary depending on the destination to choose to have the item delivered and shall include VAT or other sales taxes where applicable.
Your shopping basket on our site will display the products you have chosen, the Seller who shall provide them and details of postage and packing. Full details of delivery costs/methods shall be provided in the Individual Seller Terms and Conditions and shall vary for each Seller. Any delivery times quoted are in working days.
