Your acceptance of these Terms and Conditions is given when you place an order with us. These Terms and Conditions tell you who we are, how we will provide products to you, how you and we may change or end the contract, what to do if there is a problem and other important information. If you have any questions about any aspects of our Website, please contact us using the details below.

2.4 “Writing” includes emails. When we use the words “writing” or “written” in these Terms and Conditions, this includes emails.

3. Website Information. We will endeavour to make sure that all information on our Website is accurate and correct at all times and will try to resolve any errors on the Website as soon as reasonably possible. If you believe that such an error has affected your purchase, please contact us although this does not mean we accept liability for any such errors.

4. Our Contract with you.

4.1 We accept orders when payment is taken. We will contact you by email to confirm that we have received and accepted your order and then we will confirm dispatch and tracking details to you by email also. These emails will include an order number, a tracking number, details of the products you have ordered and delivery details.

4.2 Sometimes we reject orders. All orders are subject to acceptance and availability. Sometimes we reject orders, for example, because a product is unexpectedly out of stock, you are located outside our delivery areas or because the product was mispriced by us. When this happens, we let you know as soon as possible, and you will not be charged for your order, and we will refund any sums you have paid. Any items placed in your shopping basket are not reserved and may still be purchased by other customers. We will notify you by email if for any reason we are unable to complete your order.

5. Charges.

5.1 We charge you when you order, and your order shall not be completed until you have made payment. Order status may take up to 2 hours to update after your order has been placed. 

5.2 Where VAT is applicable, we pass on increases in VAT. If you are in the UK and choose to have the products shipped to the UK, prices will be shown inclusive of VAT (where applicable) at the current rate. If the rate of VAT changes between your order date and the date we supply the product, we adjust the rate of VAT that you pay, unless you have already paid in full before the change in the rate of VAT takes effect. US will show a price excluding VAT as no VAT will be due on these orders.  Delivery to any EU Country may be liable for Customs Duty and Local Taxes. Please note that these fees are the sole responsibility of the purchaser and are non-refundable. You will pay any additional fees directly to the carrier and orders with multiple items may be dispatched in separate parcels. You will only be charged for one delivery fee; however duties and taxes are charged upon delivery of each item. Failure to pay this additional duty or tax will result in your parcel being returned to us. We recommend that you speak to your local Customs Office if you have any queries regarding this. 

5.3 If you are a customer whose credit/debit card is not denominated in Pounds, Euros or Dollars, the final price will be calculated in accordance with the applicable exchange rate on the day your card issuer processes the transaction. All orders are placed with The Little Blazer Company, which is a UK entity. Your card issuer or payment method provider may therefore apply other international bank charges. We have no control and cannot predict the amount of these charges. Please contact your issuing bank before placing your order if this applies to you.

5.4 We can end our contract with you for a product and claim any compensation due to us if you don't make any payment to us when it's due and you still don't make payment within 14 days of our reminding you that a payment is due.

5.5 Payments – we accept all major debit and credit cards including Visa, Mastercard, Amex and Shop Pay, Apple Pay and Google Pay. Payment will be debited and cleared from your account upon acceptance of your order.

5.6 You confirm that any payment method that you use is yours or that you have been specifically authorised by the owner of the payment method to use it. All credit/debit card holders are subject to validation checks and authorisation by the card issuer. If the issuer of your payment card refuses to authorise payment to us, we will not be liable for any delay or non-delivery.

5.7 We reserve the right to cancel your purchase without prior notification. Examples of occasions we may choose to cancel your purchase are your card details have been flagged by our fraud screening processes or are declined by our fraud screening process.

5.8 We take reasonable care to keep the details of your order and payment secure, but in the absence of negligence on our part we cannot be held liable for any loss you may suffer if a third party procures unauthorised access to any data you provide when accessing or ordering from our Website.

5.9 Discount Codes. Discount codes may be issued from time to time for seasonal offers, promotions or may be gifted by us. Discount codes can only be used once and therefore, cannot be used in conjunction with other discount codes. Unless otherwise specified, the discount code should not apply to items on sale.
