Your contract with us
When you purchase Products from our site your order does not mean it has been accepted by us; your order constitutes an offer to us to buy a Product. We will confirm acceptance to you by sending you an e-mail stating that the payment has been processed and that your Products have been dispatched (‘Dispatch Confirmation’). The contract between us (‘Contract’) will only be formed when we send you the Dispatch Confirmation.
The Contract will relate only to those Products whose dispatch we have confirmed in the Dispatch Confirmation. We will not be obliged to supply any other Products which may have been part of your order until the dispatch of such Products has been confirmed in a separate Dispatch Confirmation.
TheSimpleStories.com has made every endeavour to ensure photographs, dimensions and Product descriptions represent our Products as accurately as possible. In some instances, there may be a slight variation in appearance and colours of the actual Products due to the production process, the lighting in which they were photographed or your computer’s monitor settings. All descriptions, photographs, specifications or illustrations contained on Emily Rollings’ website are issued or published for the sole purpose of giving an approximate idea of the products described on the website and will not form part of the contract with you and no warranty or guarantee shall be expressed or implied in the contract with you in this regard.
TheSimpleStories.com generally uses Royal Mail postal services. For all mainland UK orders we aim to deliver within 5 working days, delivery times for other destinations will vary.
Please note that some products will not fit through a standard letterbox so it is likely that if you are not in to receive the items in person in the UK Royal Mail will leave a card explaining how to rearrange delivery. Sometimes due to unforeseen circumstances such as severe weather or during busy times like Christmas, deliveries may take a little longer. If you have not received your delivery within 7 working days, please contact us on email@example.com
Please note that any import duties and taxes are your responsibility.
It is your responsibility to provide the correct delivery address at checkout.
