You represent and warrant that you are at least 18 years old and that all registration information you submit is accurate and truthful.
Individuals under the age of 18 must at all times use the services only in conjunction with and under the supervision of a parent or legal guardian who is at least 18 years of age. In all cases, the adult is the user and is responsible for any and all activities.
when applicable only one promotional code can be used at a time;
the colours which are shown for the Goods on the Site will depend on many factors – including your display settings;
all sizes and measurements are approximate;
all Goods are subject to availability – the relevant Seller may not be able to supply your order;
any delivery estimates given on the Site or by email are estimates only; and
the Goods and promotions which are offered on the Site may not be available in-store, and vice-versa.
You make an offer to purchase a product from a Seller (your "Order") by completing the staged process on the Site as set out below:
Adding product to your shopping basket
Checkout step 1 – login or register
Checkout step 2 – Register card details, if not already registered
Checkout step 3 – Enter delivery address and confirm payment
Confirmation of order
You are responsible for ensuring that your login details, password and all other details in relation to your account remain confidential at all times.
The Sellers reserve the right, at their sole discretion, to limit the number of items purchased per person, per household, or per order. These restrictions also may be applicable to orders placed by the same account, the same credit card, and also to orders that use the same billing and/or shipping address, or are placed by dealers.
b. Acceptance of Your Order
Your Order only constitutes an offer to purchase Goods from a Seller, and does not form a binding contract until accepted by that Seller. Where you order more than one product Your Order contains a series of offers for each product individually.
On receipt of your Order, the relevant Seller will send you an Order acknowledgement email to the email address which you provide in the Order/registration process. This Order acknowledgement email will contain your Order number, details of the Goods ordered and a delivery estimate. Note that this email is only to acknowledge that your order has been received, and is not acceptance by the relevant Seller of any offers to purchase Goods.
Each Seller must receive full payment both of the price of the Goods and any delivery charges before it can accept any offers. Where You select to pay by credit or debit card the presiding banking institution or payment gateway operating on behalf of the relevant Seller will process the payment at the time of preparing Your Goods for dispatch. Depending on the financial institution that You choose to make payment from an international transaction fee may be charged by that financial institution on Your purchase. Please note that this fee is not charged by the Sellers or Marketplace on the Seller’s behalf and as such neither the Sellers, nor Marketplace on behalf of the Sellers, can refund you any amount levied in this respect.
An offer made by You to purchase Goods shall only be deemed to be accepted by the relevant Seller when that Seller dispatches that product to You and sends You an Order dispatch email which includes details of the Goods. Each Seller reserves the right to refuse any offers in an Order prior to acceptance. If Goods are not available the relevant Seller will include details of the unavailable product in the Order dispatch email. Goods which are not available will not be included in the contract for Goods which are dispatched.
You will not be charged until your order is verified, payment authorised, and your order has entered the shipping process. Each Seller reserves the right to decline your order at their sole discretion. Some of the reasons your order may be declined are if the Goods are unavailable, if pricing is in error, or if there are problems concerning credit or an issue of fraud is detected. If your order is declined, the relevant Seller (or presiding banking institution or payment gateway on behalf of that Seller) will credit your credit card for any amount charged with respect to such order. Each Seller reserves the right without prior notice to discontinue or change the specifications for Goods, locations where Goods are delivered, and prices on Goods without incurring any obligation to you.
Delivery charges may apply and these will be displayed in the order process. All customs and import duties will be discharged by the relevant Seller. In the event that You are asked to discharge such costs by the relevant Seller’s nominated carriers, please retain proof of payment and provide the same to the Seller(s) who will refund the same.
All prices are, unless otherwise stated, inclusive of applicable taxes.
Part 2 – Delivery
Each Seller currently displays their own delivery policies which are available on every product detail page.
Each Seller endeavors to ensure that the Goods that you order are provided by the agreed delivery date and where applicable time, however delays are occasionally inevitable due to unforeseen circumstances. Neither the relevant Seller nor its nominated carrier shall be under any liability for any delay or failure to deliver the Goods within the estimated time frame.
Risk of loss and damage of Goods passes to you on the date and time of delivery of the Goods.
Part 3 – Returns Policy
This Part 3 sets out the terms which govern Your right to return any Goods that You do not want to keep.
When a Seller delivers your Goods to You it will include a returns slip, and information on how to return Goods to that Seller. If You want to return any items You must complete the returns slip and enclose this with the items You are returning.
You can, at any time within 28 days of receiving full price Goods purchased from this Site, or 14 days of receiving sale items, cancel your contract and return such Goods to the relevant Seller within the respective 28 or 14 day period.
You must then, within the periods referred to within the preceding paragraph, return the Goods to the relevant Seller by sending them in a securely wrapped parcel in accordance with the instructions below:
Write Your name, address, postcode and order number on the returns form.
Complete the returns form and enclose it with Your Goods in accordance with the instructions contained therein.
Ensure Your Goods are in a securely wrapped parcel and place a returns address label on the parcel.
Take the parcel (with enclosed returns form) and the dispatch note to the Post Office. The clerk will stamp the proof of posting on the dispatch note which You should retain until you receive your refund.
Please remember to complete the returns form with Your returned Goods.
Once you decide to return the Goods You must not use them and must take reasonable care of them while they remain in Your possession. The Goods must be returned intact, undamaged as soon as reasonably possible. Each Seller or presiding banking institution or payment gateway on that Seller’s behalf will refund to the payment card the price paid for the Goods upon acceptance the return, less any agreed costs.
Items purchased online at www.boutiquelocal.co.uk cannot be returned to any Seller(s) store.
For reasons of hygiene, Sellers are unable to refund or exchange earrings. Please ensure that under-garments including but not limited to, g-strings and swimwear are tried on over your own underwear. Each Seller reserves the right to refuse returns of items where it is apparent that this has not been done. Please ensure you return Goods in their original condition and packaging, unworn and unwashed, with all labels intact. In addition, Goods marked as ‘Final Sale’ shall not be refunded. Under the Distance Selling Regulations, you have a right to cancel your order for any item purchased on this website for a full refund. This does not apply to items personalised or made to your specification; audio/video recordings or software that you have unsealed; items that due to their nature cannot be returned; perishable goods (e.g. food and flowers) and periodicals/magazines.
Please return goods using a trackable service such as Royal Mail Recorded Delivery as the Seller cannot accept any responsibility for items lost during the return process.
Your rights under this Part 3 are in addition to the cancellation rights under the Consumer Protection (Distance Selling) Regulations 2000 as amended or superseded from time to time. If you wish, you may notify the Seller(s) that you wish to cancel your contact before the end of the statutory cancellation period (7 days from the day after you receive the Goods). You must then return the Goods to the Seller(s) in the manner specified in the above paragraph.
Nothing under these terms and conditions affects your statutory rights.
