5 THE BUYER'S STATUS

5.1.1 they are legally capable of entering into binding contracts;
5.1.2 they are at least 18 years old;
5.1.3 they possess a valid credit or debit card;
5.1.4 they are resident in the UK; and
5.1.5 they are accessing the Website from the UK.
6 THE SELLER'S STATUS
The Seller may also provide links on the Website to the websites of other companies, whether affiliated with the Seller or not. The Seller cannot give any undertaking that products purchased from third party sellers through the Website, or from companies to whose website we have provided a link on the Website, will be of satisfactory quality, and any such warranties are disclaimed by us absolutely. This disclaimer does not affect the Buyer's statutory rights against the third party seller. If the Buyer would like information about their legal rights, the Buyer should contact their local trading standards or citizens advice bureau. The Seller will notify the Buyer when a third party is involved in a transaction, and the Seller may disclose the Buyer's personal information related to that transaction to the third party seller.
7 HOW THE CONTRACT IS FORMED BETWEEN THE BUYER AND THE SELLER
First the Buyer requests a Box of Products to be sent to them. The Seller will then select Products for the Box in accordance with the Buyer's expressed preferences. The prices for the Products will be the Seller's standard list prices. When a Box is ready to send to you, the Seller will send you a Dispatch Confirmation. This is when the contract between us is formed. The contract will relate only to those Products listed in the Dispatch Confirmation. The Seller will not be obliged to supply any other Products.
8 PRICE AND PAYMENT
8.1 The price of the Products and the Seller's delivery charges will be as quoted from time to time, except in cases of obvious error.
8.2 Product prices and delivery charges are liable to change at any time, but changes will not affect orders in respect of which the Seller has already sent the Buyer a Dispatch Confirmation.
8.3 The Seller carrys a large number of Products and it is always possible that, despite the Seller's best efforts, some of the Products may be incorrectly priced. The Seller will normally verify prices as part of its dispatch procedures so that, where a Product's correct price is less than the Seller's stated price, the Seller will charge the lower amount when dispatching the Product to the Buyer. If a Product's correct price is higher than the price stated by the Seller, the Seller will normally, at its discretion, either contact the Buyer for instructions before dispatching the Product, or reject the Buyer's order and notify the Buyer that the Seller is rejecting it.
8.4 If the pricing error is obvious and unmistakeable and could have reasonably recognised by the Buyer as an error, the Seller does not have to provide the Products to you at the incorrect (lower) price.
8.5 Payment for all Products must be by credit or debit card. The Seller accepts payment with MasterCard and VISA.
8.6 The Buyer's credit or debit card account will be debited only when the Buyer has decided to keep some Products or the Buyer's right to cancel its order has expired i.e. 10 working days (not including weekends or bank holidays) after the day on which the Buyer receives the Products (please see the Cancellation Policy (clause 9) for further details of the Buyer's rights to cancel).
8.7 Payment is due on receipt of returned Products the day the Box arrives back with the Seller. Upon the Buyer receiving its invoice via email, payment is required IN FULL for items kept from the Box or any items worn/damaged. We do not offer payment plans or credits.
8.8 When the Seller receives the Buyer's order the Seller carries out a standard credit check on the Buyer and debits the Buyer's payment card a £20 deposit, which is non-refundable but redeemable against any of the Products that the Buyer chooses to keep, once the Seller receives the Box back and the Seller checks which Products the Buyer has kept. This is to make sure that the Buyer is credit worthy and that the Buyer's payment card is valid for the transaction. Products will not be dispatched until the credit check and the payment of deposit from the Buyer's payment card have been completed satisfactorily.
9 CANCELLATION POLICY
Details of the Buyer's right of cancellation, and an explanation of how to exercise it, are provided in the Dispatch Confirmation. The Buyer has 10 days from the day of delivery of a Box of Products to cancel the agreement for some or all Products in the Box, and return the unwanted Products in accordance with the Seller's Return Policy. This does not affect the Buyer's other statutory rights as a consumer which means that the Buyer has seven working days starting from the day after delivery to cancel the agreement.
The Buyer's order will be fulfilled by the delivery date set out in the Dispatch Confirmation or, if no delivery date is specified, then within 30 days of the date of the Dispatch Confirmation, unless there are exceptional circumstances.
11 RISK AND TITLE
11.1 The Products will be the Buyer's responsibility from the time of delivery i.e. when the Products are delivered and signed for. Any garment that is returned to the Seller must be in 100% re-saleable condition, in its original packing and with any tags or labels; if a garment is not in 100% re-saleable condition then unfortunately the Seller cannot accept it as a return and will charge the Buyer for it.
11.2 Ownership of the Products will only pass to the Buyer when the Seller receives full payment of all sums due in respect of the Products, including delivery charges (if applicable).
A refund would only be necessary if the Seller charged the Buyer incorrectly after the Buyer received a faulty Product which was subsequently returned to the Seller or the Buyer charged the Seller within 7 working days starting from the day after delivery but the Buyer subsequently cancelled the agreement. In these cases the Seller will refund the Buyer for the full amount within 30 days of the return of such faulty Product or the cancellation of the agreement respectively to the same card the Buyer paid with for such Products.
13 REMEDY FOR BREACH
All Products supplied by the Seller must be as described, fit for purpose and of satisfactory quality. If the Products are faulty, the Buyer is entitled to a repair or a replacement. If the fault cannot be fixed within a reasonable time, or without causing the Buyer significant inconvenience, the Buyer is entitled to a full or partial refund.
14 LIMITATION OF LIABILITY

14.5 Nothing in these Terms and Conditions limits or excludes the Seller’s responsibility for fraudulent representations made by it or for death or personal injury caused by the Seller’s negligence.

When using the Website, the Buyer accepts that communication with the Seller will be mainly electronic. The Seller will contact the Buyer by e-mail or provide the Buyer with information by posting notices on the Website. For contractual purposes, the Buyer agrees to this electronic means of communication and the Buyer acknowledges that all contracts, notices, information and other communications that the Seller provides to the Buyer electronically complies with any legal requirement that such communications be in writing. This condition does not affect the Buyer's statutory rights.
All notices given by the Buyer to the Seller must be given to Olivia Darby and Emily Watkins at contact@TheLittleOutfitters.com . The Seller may give notice to the Buyer at either the e-mail or postal address the Buyer provides to the Seller when placing an order, or in any of the ways specified in clause 15 (Written Communications). Notice will be deemed received and properly served immediately when posted on the Website, 24 hours after an e-mail is sent, or three days after the date of posting of any letter. In proving the service of any notice, it will be sufficient to prove, in the case of a letter, that such letter was properly addressed, stamped and placed in the post and, in the case of an e-mail, that such e-mail was sent to the specified e-mail address of the addressee.
No waiver by the Seller (whether express or implied) in enforcing any of its rights under this contract shall prejudice its rights to do so in the future.
18 FORCE MAJEURE
The Seller shall not be liable for any delay or failure to perform any of its obligations if the delay or failure results from events or circumstances outside its reasonable control, including but not limited to, acts of God, strikes, lock outs, accidents, war, fire, failure of any communications, telecommunications or computer system, breakdown of plant or machinery or shortage or unavailability of raw materials from a natural source of supply. The Seller's performance under these terms and conditions including any Contract is deemed to be suspended for the period that the force majeure event continues, and we shall be entitled to a reasonable extension of time for performance for the duration of the period that the force majeure continues.
If any term or provision of these Terms and Conditions is held invalid, illegal or unenforceable for any reason by any court of competent jurisdiction such provision shall be severed and the remainder of the provisions hereof shall continue in full force and effect as if these Terms and Conditions had been agreed with the invalid illegal or unenforceable provision eliminated.
