The www.usnireland.ie website ("the Website") is the property of USN
in Ireland Ltd ("USN"). Registered company number 387398. By accessing
any part of the Website and/or purchasing any goods through the
Website, you shall be deemed to have accepted this legal notice
in full and you agree to be bound by the following terms and conditions.
1.1 USN has taken reasonable care in the preparation of the content of the Website. However, to the extent permitted by applicable law, USN disclaims all warranties (express or implied) as to the accuracy of the information contained in any of the materials on the Website.
1.2 USN shall not be liable to any person for any loss or damage, which may arise from the use of any of the information contained in any of the materials on the Website.
1.3 Certain links in the Website (typically a banner advert or icon) will lead to sites which are not under the control of USN. When you activate any of these you will leave the Website and USN has no control over and will accept no responsibility or liability for the material on any site which is not under the control of USN. Links to a third party website on the Website are provided solely for your convenience. If you decide to access any of the third party websites linked to the Website, you do so entirely at your own risk.
2. Products and Pricing
2.1 Products may be withdrawn for sale from the Website at any stage without any prior notification. We also reserve the right to amend prices of products without prior notification. All prices on the Website are in Euro, and that is what will be deducted from your debit/credit card. If you are purchasing using a non-Euro credit card (e.g. sterling) the exchange rate is applied by your bank and not by USN.
2.2 In the event a product or service is listed at an incorrect price due to typographical error or error in pricing information received from our suppliers, we shall have the right to refuse to meet or to cancel any orders placed for that product or service whether or not the order has been confirmed and your credit card charged. If your credit card has already been charged for the purchase and your order is cancelled, we shall immediately issue a credit to your credit card account in the amount of the charge.
Once you have entered your personal details including debit/credit card information, and have proceeded past the checkout stage of the purchase process, it is deemed that you wish to purchase the product or products in the shopping cart. It is also assumed that you wish to have your debit/credit card deducted accordingly.
4.1 Products are delivered on the premise that they are for your own personal consumption, and not for re-sale. Delivery times quoted are estimates only, and USN shall not be liable for any delays caused except to the extent caused willfully or negligently by USN. Delivery times will normally be up to 2 days for delivery to Republic of Ireland and up to 7 days for all other countries. In the unlikely event that the item you ordered is not in stock, we will contact you and let you know the expected delivery date. If you decide not to pursue with your order, we will cancel the order and issue a full refund.
4.2 If you order products on the Website, and your delivery address is outside of Ireland, these products may be subject to import taxes/duties imposed by the relevant country of residence of the customer. USN have no control over the imposition and rates of these taxes and cannot predict their amount, or pre-charge them. Therefore, these duties are your responsibility. It is advisable to contact your local customs office for further details.
5. Safe Payments
5.1 We want to reassure you that when you shop on the Website, you can do so with complete confidence. When you purchase from us, you give us some personal information, such as your name and address, in order for us to fulfil your order. We will never, ever share these details with any other party. We will only contact you if there is a problem with your order, or if you have agreed to receive marketing materials.
6. Returns Policy
6.1We understand that from time to time, a product may not reach you in the condition you had expected it. If for some reason you wish to return the product, please contact us by email first within 10 working days of purchase at email@example.com stating the reason for return. We will issue a replacement product or a full refund for the wrong item being dispatched by us (once we receive the returned product). We will take postage and packaging charges into account.
6.2 Returns for any other reason will receive a refund (once we receive the returned product). The cost of postage and packing in this instance must be borne by the customer.
6.3 All returns must reach us by 20 working days of receiving your order. Items must be unused and unopened. The original packaging and labelling must still be attached. These conditions do not affect your statutory rights as a consumer.
6.4 If a refund is deemed necessary, we can only refund the debit/credit card which was used originally for purchase.
