    • Your order number. We will assign an order number to your order and tell you what it is when we accept your order. It will help us if you can tell us the order number whenever you contact us about your order.
  4. Our products
    • Products may vary slightly from their pictures. The images of the products on our website are for illustrative purposes only. Although we have made every effort to display the colours accurately, we cannot guarantee that a device's display of the colours accurately reflects the colour of the products. Your product may vary slightly from those images.
    • Making sure your measurements are accurate. If we are making the product to measurements you have given us you are responsible for ensuring that these measurements are correct. You can find information and tips on how to measure on our website or by contacting us.
    • Bespoke Products. Within our product range we also manufacture bespoke products, please see the ‘Bespoke Products’ section below for the specific terms applicable to those items.

    • We are not responsible for delays outside our control. If our supply of the products is delayed by an event outside our control then we will contact you as soon as possible to let you know and we will take steps to minimise the effect of the delay. Provided we do this we will not be liable for delays caused by the event, but if there is a risk of substantial delay you may contact us to end the contract and receive a refund for any products you have paid for but not received.

    • When you own the product. You own the product once we have received payment in full.
  6. Your rights to end the contract
    • You can always end your contract with us. Your rights when you end the contract will depend on what you have bought, whether there is anything wrong with it, how we are performing and when you decide to end the contract:
      • If what you have bought is faulty or misdescribed you may have a legal right to end the contract (or to get the product repaired or replaced or to get some or all of your money back), see clause 8;
      • If you want to end the contract because of something we have done or have told you we are going to do, see clause 2;
      • If you have just changed your mind about the product, see clause 3. You may be able to get a refund if you are within the cooling-off period, but this may be subject to deductions and you will have to pay the costs of return of any products.
    • Ending the contract because of something we have done or are going to do. If you are ending a contract for a reason set out below the contract will end immediately and we will refund you in full for any products which have not been provided and you may also be entitled to compensation. The reasons are:
      • we have told you about an error in the price or description of the product you have ordered and you do not wish to proceed;
      • there is a risk that supply of the products may be significantly delayed because of events outside our control;
      • you have a legal right to end the contract because of something we have done wrong.
    • Exercising your right to change your mind (Consumer Contracts Regulations 2013). For most products bought online you have a legal right to change your mind within 14 days and receive a refund. These rights, under the Consumer Contracts Regulations 2013, are explained in more detail in these terms. PLEASE NOTE: this cancellation right does not apply in the case of Bespoke Products.
    • Our goodwill guarantee. Please note, these terms reflect the goodwill guarantee offered by us to our UK customers when delivering to a UK address, which is more generous than your legal rights under the Consumer Contracts Regulations in the ways set out below. This goodwill guarantee does not affect your legal rights in relation to faulty or misdescribed products. PLEASE NOTE: this guarantee does not apply in the case of Bespoke Products.

Right under the Consumer Contracts Regulations 2013

How our goodwill guarantee is more generous

14 day period to change your mind.

30 day period to change your mind.

Consumer to pay costs of return.

We pay the costs of return.

  • When you don't have the right to change your mind. You do not have a right to change your mind in respect of:
    • Bespoke Products (see clause 11);
    • products sealed for health protection or hygiene purposes, once these have been unsealed after you receive them.
  • How long do I have to change my mind? You have 14 days (or if you are a UK customer, 30 days) after the day the products are delivered, unless you have ordered multiple products and these are split into several deliveries over different days. In this case you have 14 days (or if you are a UK customer, 30 days) after the day the last product in your order is delivered to change your mind.
  1. How to end the contract with us (including if you have changed your mind)
    • Tell us you want to end the contract. To end the contract with us, please let us know by doing one of the following:
      • Phone or email. Call customer services on +44 (0) 207 603 1084 or email us at info@augustine-studios.com. Please provide your name, home address, details of the order and, where available, your phone number and email address.
      • Online. Complete the form on our website or email us at info@augustine-studios.com.
    • Returning products. If you end the contract for any reason after products have been dispatched to you or you have received them, you must return them to us. You must post them back to us at [20 Exhibition House, Addison Bridge Place, London W14 8XP] or (if they are not suitable for posting) allow us to collect them from you. Please contact us for a return label or to arrange collection. If you are exercising your right to change your mind you must send off the products within 14 days of telling us you wish to end the contract.
    • When we will pay the costs of return. We will pay the costs of return if the products are faulty or misdescribed. In all other circumstances you must pay the costs of return.  
    • What we charge for collection. If you are responsible for the costs of return and we are collecting the product from you, we will charge you the direct cost to us of collection. The costs of collection will be the same as our charges for standard delivery.
    • How we will refund you. We will refund you the price you paid for the products including delivery costs, by the method you used for payment. However, we may make deductions from the price, as described below.
    • Deductions from refunds. If you are exercising your right to change your mind:
      • We may reduce your refund of the price (excluding delivery costs) to reflect any reduction in the value of the products, if this has been caused by your handling them in a way which would not be permitted in a shop.
      • The maximum refund for delivery costs will be the costs of delivery by the least expensive delivery method we offer. For example, if we offer delivery of a product within 3-5 days at one cost but you choose to have the product delivered within 24 hours at a higher cost, then we will only refund what you would have paid for the cheaper delivery option.
    • When your refund will be made. We will make any refunds due to you as soon as possible. If you are exercising your right to change your mind then:
      • Your refund will be made within 14 days from the day on which we receive the product back from you or, if earlier, the day on which you provide us with evidence that you have sent the product back to us. For information about how to return a product to us, see clause 9.8.
      • In all other cases, your refund will be made within 14 days of your telling us you have changed your mind
  1. If there is a problem with the product
    • How to tell us about problems. We are under a legal duty to supply products that are in conformity with this contract. If you have any questions or complaints about the product, please contact us. You can telephone our customer service team customer services on +44 (0) 207 603 1084 or email us at info@augustine-studios.com.
  2. Price and payment
    • Where to find the price for the product. The price of the product (which includes VAT) will be the price indicated on the order pages when you placed your order. We take all reasonable care to ensure that the price of the product advised to you is correct. However please see clause 3 for what happens if we discover an error in the price of the product you order.
    • We will pass on changes in the rate of VAT. If the rate of VAT changes between your order date and the date we supply the product, we will adjust the rate of VAT that you pay, unless you have already paid for the product in full before the change in the rate of VAT takes effect.
    • What happens if we got the price wrong. It is always possible that, despite our best efforts, some of the products we sell may be incorrectly priced. If the product's correct price at your order date is higher than the price stated, we will contact you for your instructions before we accept your order. If we accept and process your order where a pricing error is obvious and unmistakeable and could reasonably have been recognised by you as a mispricing, we may end the contract, refund you any sums you have paid and require the return of any products provided to you.
    • When you must pay and how you must pay. We accept payment with Visa, MasterCard, JCB and American Express. We also accept payment by bank transfer, if you require use of this method of payment please contact us for further information. You must pay for the products before we dispatch them.
  3. Our responsibility for loss or damage suffered by you
    • We are responsible to you for foreseeable loss and damage caused by us. If we fail to comply with these terms, we are responsible for loss or damage you suffer that is a foreseeable result of our breaking this contract or our failing to use reasonable care and skill. Loss or damage is foreseeable if either it is obvious that it will happen or if, at the time the contract was made, both we and you knew it might happen, for example, if you discussed it with us during the sales process.
    • We are not liable for business losses. We only supply the products for domestic and private use. If you use the products for any commercial, business or re-sale purpose we will have no liability to you for any loss of profit, loss of business, business interruption, or loss of business opportunity.
  4. Bespoke Products
    • Please note that if you are ordering a Bespoke Product and a term in this section conflicts with any other provision in these Terms, then the terms in this section apply.
    • Bespoke Products are pieces made to your specifications, for example using a design or material which you specifically request and which is not available as standard on our site. You can find more information at ‘Our Bespoke’ section of the site.
    • You can order a Bespoke Product by contacting us at customerservices@augustine-studios.com. We will then discuss your options and requirements with you and a design, price and timescale.
    • Bespoke Products may take longer to produce. When you order Bespoke Products we will confirm the delivery timescales with you by e-mail.
    • Once the price and timescale has been agreed by you we will ask for 50% of the payment to be made, including delivery charges. The balance must be paid before we dispatch the Bespoke Product.
    • Once we have received payment from you a Contract will have formed.
    • Please note that the consumer right to cancel a contract under the Consumer Contracts Regulations 2013 (as referred to in detail in the ‘Your Rights to End the Contract’ section above) does not apply to Bespoke Products. If for any reason you wish to cancel an order for Bespoke Products you should contact us immediately, we may be able to cancel your order and charge cost price, but this will not be appropriate in all circumstances and you may still be charged the full price. Certain Bespoke Products may be returnable but this will be assessed on a case by case basis and at our absolute discretion.
  5. How we may use your personal information
    • How we will use your personal information. We will use the personal information you provide to us to supply the products to you, to process your payment for the products and if you agreed to this during the order process, to inform you about similar products that we provide, but you may stop receiving these at any time by contacting us.
    • We will only give your personal information to third parties where the law either requires or allows us to do so.
  6. Other important terms
    • Our intellectual property. All intellectual property in the products shall at all times and without limitation vest in and remain our property.
    • If a court finds part of this contract illegal, the rest will continue in force. Each of the paragraphs of these terms operates separately. If any court or relevant authority decides that any of them are unlawful, the remaining paragraphs will remain in full force and effect.
    • Which laws apply to this contract and where you may bring legal proceedings. These terms are governed by English law and you can bring legal proceedings in respect of the products in the English courts.
