Terms and Conditions
Every item is described as accurately as possible and represents excellent value for money. The correct price is that which is displayed on this website, at the time that we receive your application, save in the case of a mistake where a pricing error is discovered or for reasons beyond our reasonable control, e.g. alterations to the rate of value added tax. If the correct price is higher than the price displayed on the website, you may return the goods within our 14 day approval, in new condition.
We reserve the right to adjust the VAT element if this changes from 20% (as advised by HMRC).
Price Policy on Clearance/Sale Prices
In some instances items may have been sold at their original prices on the website or in the catalogue of one of our Scotts & Co. (Scotts Ltd) sister companies and items may not necessarily have ever sold previously on this company's website. Details of all the Scotts & Co. (Scotts Ltd) brands are available on request.
We always strive to bring our customers the best possible offers and deals whilst ensuring to operate fair commercial practices without misleading our customers.
Where we detail price reductions on our website the following pricing policy shall apply: The 'WAS' price shown next to an item on this website is the highest price at which the item has been offered for sale in the last 12 months by us or one of our sister company publications (details on request). Some items have been offered for sale at a price lower than the 'WAS' price during the last 12 months but, unless otherwise indicated, the 'NOW' price shown is the lowest price at which the item has been offered by us. Details of intervening prices are available on request. In all cases the 'WAS' price will have applied for a continuous period of 28 days or more.

Customer Satisfaction Guaranteed
You can return items to us for a “goodwill” refund or exchange. All we ask is that the item is returned to us within 14 days, unused and in its original packaging together with proof of purchase and in fully resalable condition. “Goodwill” refunds are not given on software, personalised and perishable items, pierced earrings, hygiene-sensitive items including pillows, mattress-toppers and duvets, unless faulty. This does not affect your statutory rights.
If any goods which form part of a bundle offer are returned for a refund, then the remaining items will revert to their normal catalogue price and you will be refunded accordingly.
Under the Consumer Contracts (Information, Cancellation and Additional Charges) Regulations 2013, you have a statutory right to cancel your order within fourteen days of receipt of your goods and receive a full refund, apart from items personalised for you. If an item has already reached our despatch channels and it is too late to cancel, we ask that you return the item(s) to us. Personalised products are bespoke and made for your specification, should you wish to cancel a personalised order whilst we will endeavour to affect your cancellation, an item may already be in the process of personalisation and cancellation may not be possible.
We guarantee to replace or refund any item that does not meet with your complete satisfaction. All we ask is that the item is returned to us within 14 days, unused and in its original packaging with all original documentation.
What is your returns policy on customised or personalised products?
Products which are defined as customised, bespoke or personalised are manufactured according to the customers' specifications, and therefore are non-returnable unless faulty.

Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations
On 1 July 2007 the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations were implemented in the UK in order to protect our environment. Along with other retailers, Scotts & Co.

Visit www.recycle-more.co.uk to find out where your nearest recycling point is. Unfortunately we cannot accept electrical items back for recycling. Instead Scotts & Co. (Scotts Ltd) has contributed to the funding of an alternative network of UK recycling facilities as stated above.
