Terms & Conditions of Online Sale (Jewellery & Watches)
About these terms and conditions
These are the terms and conditions on which we supply products to you, whether these are goods, services or digital content. Because we provide a range of services and products on line, there are some general terms and conditions which apply to everything we do, and there are some which relate to specific types of product or services which we provide.
Please read these terms carefully before you submit your order to us. These terms tell you who we are, how we will provide products to you, how you and we may change or end the contract, what to do if there is a problem and other important information. If you think that there is a mistake in these terms, please contact us to discuss.
We are Ramsdens Financial Limited ("We"). We are registered in England and Wales under company number 03045495 and have our registered office and main trading address at our store at Unit 16, Parkway Centre, Coulby Newham, Middlesbrough, Cleveland, England, TS8 0TJ. Our VAT number is 654256431.

Email us at one of the following:
General Enquiries will be handled by our Customer Services Team at firstname.lastname@example.org
Complaints will be handled by our Servicing Team at email@example.com
If we have to contact you we will do so by telephone or by writing to you at the email address or postal address you provided to us in your order.
Our contract with you
Our acceptance of your order will take place when we email you to accept it, at which point a contract will come into existence between you and us.
If we are unable to accept your order, we will inform you of this and issue a full refund. This might be because the product is out of stock, because of unexpected limits on our resources which we could not reasonably plan for, because we have identified an error in the price or description of the product or because we are unable to meet a delivery deadline you have specified.
Our Website shows ‘one off’ items which may also be on sale in one of our high street branches. Ramsdens operate a dual real time IT system to limit this situation from occurring, in the unlikely event than an online purchase is completed at the same time as in branch, the item will be allocated to the customer that successfully completes payment. If this happens to be an in branch customer, any online payments taken will be refunded back to the account.
Our website is solely for the promotion of our products in the UK. Unfortunately, we do not deliver to addresses outside the UK. Please note that we cannot deliver goods to addresses in the Channel Islands.
Your right to make changes
If you wish to make a change to the product you have ordered please contact us. We will let you know if the change is possible. If it is possible we will let you know about any changes to the price of the product, the timing of supply or anything else which would be necessary as a result of your requested change and ask you to confirm whether you wish to go ahead with the change.
Providing the Products
If you are picking up your order from a local store, you will need to go in person, and take with you the payment card you used to pay online as well as your receipt. These requirements are for your peace of mind, as they allow us to ensure your details are completely secure.
If you fail to collect your order from your selected Ramsdens location within 30 days of the collection date then your Order will be marked as “not-collected” and may be cancelled at the sole discretion of Ramsdens.
If you have asked to collect the products from our premises, you can collect them from us at any time during our opening hours. Please be aware that opening hours vary across our branches, so please check online here.
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.
If you do not collect the products from us as arranged or if, after a failed delivery to you, you do not re-arrange delivery or collect them from a delivery depot we will contact you for further instructions and may charge you for storage costs and any further delivery costs. If, despite our reasonable efforts, we are unable to contact you or re-arrange delivery or collection we may end the contract.
If we process a refund for you, the date the monies reach your bank account is dependent upon your bank processing the refund which could take from 2 to 10 Working Days.
The product will be your responsibility from the time you collect it from us.
You own the goods once we have received payment in full.
Our right to end the contract
We reserve the right to cancel any order for jewellery and watches at any time and issue a full refund. This right does not apply in relation to an order for goods or services other than jewellery and watches.
Your rights to end the contract
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 you are ending a contract for a reason set out at (a) to (e) 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:
