Terms & Conditions
By using this Website and/or placing an Order, you agree to be bound by the TOS. We may from time to time modify the TOS, and will notify you by updating the TOS posted on our Website. Your continued usage of the Services will signify agreement to be bound by the modified TOS.
Use of the Website is provided on a temporary basis and we reserve the right to withdraw or amend the Services without notice. We do not give warranties in respect of the Services, nor are we liable if the Website is unavailable at any time or for any period. From time to time we may restrict parts or all of this Website.
You may place a request to purchase a Product advertised for sale on the Website (Order) by following the onscreen prompts displayed alongside the Product(s) you are interested in. You will have an opportunity to check and correct any input errors in your Order up until the point at which you submit your Order by clicking the "Submit Order" button on the Order review page (Order Form) and successfully provide your name, contact details, billing address, shipping address and payment details (Checkout).
All Orders placed by you are subject to acceptance by us. We may choose not to accept your Order for any reason.
After submitting an Order to us, you will be sent an Order acknowledgment email with your Order reference and details of the Products you have requested to purchase (Order Acknowledgement). Please note, this email is an acknowledgement and is not an acceptance of your Order. You may also receive a payment acknowledgment email from Paypal, depending on what payment details you supplied. You will not be charged for Products, until your Order has been confirmed, and Products are ready for dispatch.
If your Order includes Products which are not available from stock, we will contact you by email or phone to ask how you wish to proceed. You will have the option to wait until the Products are available from Stock, or cancel your Order.
Acceptance of your Order and the formation of a contract between us will take place when we send you an email confirming that the products you have Ordered are being dispatched to you (Order Confirmation), unless we have notified you that we do not accept your Order or you have already cancelled it in accordance with the provisions below.
Price & Payment
The prices of Products advertised for sale on the Website are as set out on the Website. All prices are in pounds (£) sterling, inclusive of VAT, but exclude delivery charges. Delivery charges, where applicable, are clearly displayed when you Checkout. Delivery charges will be automatically calculated and added to your Order at Checkout. Prices and delivery charges displayed are valid and effective only in the United Kingdom.
Prices may change at any time prior to (but not after) acceptance of your Order.
We cannot accept your Order until you have paid for it in full.
Payment can be made by PayPal, Visa, Electron, MasterCard, Delta and Maestro Credit/Debit cards. You confirm that the credit/debit card that is being used is yours. All credit/debit card holders are subject to validation checks and authorisation by the card issuer.
We will also carry out a standard pre-authorisation check on your payment card to ensure sufficient funds to fulfil the transaction. Items will not be dispatched until this pre-authorisation check has been completed. Your card will be debited once the Order has been accepted.
If the issuer of your payment card refuses to authorise payments, we will not be liable for any delay or non-delivery.
We take all reasonable care to make our Websites and Services as secure as possible. All payment card transactions on this site are processed using PayPal.
Please note, refunds can only be made to the credit/debit card used in payment. In the event this is not possible, a Gift Voucher to the value of the payment will be issued. Please see the Returns Policy for more information.
In the unlikely event that the price of a Product has been incorrectly advertised on the Website, we will contact you by email to ask whether you wish to proceed with the Order at the correct price. If you are not happy to proceed, or we are unable to obtain your instructions, we will cancel the Order. Unless we have already confirmed despatch of your Order, we will not be obliged to supply Products at the incorrect price.
Gift vouchers/cards, store vouchers and shopping sprees (Gift Vouchers) may be purchased in standard or custom denominations of pounds (£) sterling, and can be used in full or part payment for any Products advertised for sale on the Website and for any applicable delivery charges, with the exclusion of the use for purchase of new Gift Vouchers.
When used in full payment for Orders that are of a lesser total value than the Gift Voucher, the remaining balance will be credited in the form of a replacement Gift Voucher to the value of the remaining balance.
The Gift Voucher is redeemed solely by entering the unique code (Gift Voucher Code) at the time of Checkout, into the Discounts field.
You will receive your Gift Voucher Code from the MakerBase Team within 48 hours of purchasing the Gift Voucher from the Website. The Gift Voucher expires 12 months from the day after receipt of the Gift Voucher Code.
As per our Returns Policy, you may cancel the Gift Voucher within 7 days of receipt of the Gift Voucher Code, for a full refund, provided the Gift Voucher Code has not been used.
