PART B – BUYING GOODS
This PART B sets out the terms that apply to your purchase of goods from the Site.
Placing your Order
Once you have selected the goods which you would like, you will be asked to register your personal details with us by completing a registration form. Registration is not required; however we encourage registration in order to facilitate the checkout process during future orders on the Site. You always have the option to complete your order as a “guest” without registering on the Site. You will also be asked to provide details about your debit or credit card in order to allow us to take payment after our acceptance of your order. We use a third party card authorization service to verify that your details are correct and to administer payment on our behalf, your personal details, including your credit card details, will be transferred to such third party and you specifically consent to your data being transferred for such purposes. When you place an order for goods via the Site, your order constitutes an offer to purchase goods from us which will become binding after our acceptance as detailed below. Where you order more than one item, your order comprises a series of offers for each item individually. In cases where we find a lack of correctness in our verification of your details relating your credit or debit, the purchase process can by delayed, suspended or interrupted.
After placing an order with us, you will access an order confirmation webpage and receive an order confirmation email (together the “Order Confirmations”). The Order Confirmations set out the final details of the order which you have submitted to the Site. Please take care when placing your order. You will be able to add to or amend your order after we send the Order Confirmations for one hour after the placement of the order by amending it online or, if later, by contacting our Customer Service at 08000261505. If you wish to add or amend your order later than one hour after the placement of the order but before the issue of the Shipment Confirmation detailed below, you cannot amend it online and you should contact our Customer Service using the details above.
The Order Confirmations contain details of the goods you have ordered, the total cost of the order including delivery and an order number. Once your order has been shipped, we will send you a shipping confirmation email and the relevant invoice will be made available to you on the Site in the section Order History. The invoice email constitutes the VAT receipt for your goods. You should print off a copy of the invoice email together with a copy of these Terms of Sale and the Additional Policies and keep them safe. You will need to refer to these details when contacting us about your order.
All orders are subject to acceptance by us. We will confirm acceptance to you by sending you an email that confirms that, all or part of, the goods ordered by you have been dispatched (the “Shipping Confirmation”). The contract between you and us, which shall incorporate these Terms of Sale, will be formed only when we issue the Shipping Confirmation to you. The contract will relate only to those goods whose dispatch we have confirmed in the Shipping Confirmation. We will not be obliged to supply any other goods which may have been part of your order, until the dispatch of such goods has been confirmed in a separate Shipping Confirmation.
Although we hope to be able to supply all goods ordered, we reserve the right, at our discretion and without the need to give reasons, not to accept any offer at any time before the relevant goods have been dispatched. Should we refuse your order we will notify you as soon as reasonably possible.
If You submit an order for prescription spectacles, You represent that you are not registered blind or partially sighted and accept that you will be required to submit details of a prescription from a suitably qualified person obtained within the last 24 months and, when requested, any other detail of your current prescription (including any notes on the prescription). Your order will be subject to receipt and verification of such prescription. You consent to us contacting your optician to verify your prescription. If considered necessary or appropriate before an order is accepted, we have absolute discretion: (a) to contact directly, or request that you contact, the optician who provided your prescription to verify and/or discuss your prescription; (b) to request that you obtain your pupillary distance measurement from your optician; or (c) request that you obtain a new written prescription from your optician.
We will take payment from your credit or debit card at the time your order is shipped. You will receive an email or post mail detailing what items have shipped from your order and the cost to ship these items (the “Email”). If your order is split into multiple shipments, we will charge you only for the items actually shipped at that time. The Email will include information of the items actually shipped at that time only, a summary of these terms and conditions, information on the purchased good, on the right of withdrawal, on the methods of payment and on the applicable taxes, and all information mandatory provided by the law. We will contact you if we have any problems taking payment from the card details you provide during the order process.
All prices shown on the Site are inclusive of VAT and other applicable taxes. We do not charge you any fee for delivering the items to your shipping address.
Except where otherwise set out in these Terms of Sale, the price payable by you for the goods is the price given by the Site at the time you place your order.
Whilst we try to ensure that all the prices on the Site are accurate, errors may occur. If, before our acceptation, we discover an error in the price of the goods you have ordered we will inform you as soon as reasonably possible. You will then be given the option of re-confirming your order at the correct price or cancelling your order.
If we are unable to contact you using the contact details you provided during the order process, we will treat the order as cancelled and notify you by email.
The Order Confirmations will include general information about your order and will include a delivery date for your goods. We will then send you a separate Shipping Confirmation email. The Shipping Confirmation email will include a tracking number that you may use to track your order on our delivery service provider's website and confirm the delivery date.
Delivery will take place at the delivery address specified by you during the order process. Note that if you purchase an item, for instance, on the French Site, you may only indicate a shipping address located in France, or if you purchase an item on the German Site then you may only indicate a shipping address located in Germany, and so forth.

once the goods have been delivered to you and you have taken the physical possession of the goods, you become the owner of those goods and from that point they will be at your risk.

Missing items will be re-ordered and damaged/incorrect items will be returned and, subject to these Terms of Sale, replaced and delivered free of charge.
