These terms and conditions were last updated on 01/11/2009. Use of our website and the sale and purchase of goods from the website are governed by our terms and conditions as set out below. We or Our means Directory Technologies Ltd trading as and / or our Retailers . You or your means the person accessing, using or ordering from our website over the Internet.

Disclosed agent acts as agent in the sale of goods which are supplied by our fulfilment Retailers directly to you. The contract of sale then exists between you and the Retailer. These terms and conditions cover all sales made through this website and each of our Retailers must comply with our terms and conditions of trading.
Prices, description and availability of goods
All prices are shown in GBP (Pounds Sterling). Prices other than those in GBP are shown for guidance purposes only. All goods are sold subject to availability. Both price and availability information is subject to change without notice, hence any subsequent purchases of the same product cannot be guaranteed at the same price. Where goods are temporarily out of stock we will endeavour to contact you so that you may choose between a refund on the item, having it shipped when it is back in stock or selecting an alternative product. Whilst we take the utmost care to ensure the product descriptions, pictures, information and prices are accurate we do not accept liability for any inaccuracies, errors or omissions. Despite our best efforts, a small number of the half million items displayed on our site may be mispriced. No contract exists between you and our Retailer partner for the sale by our Retailer partner to you of any product unless and until our Retailer partner accepts the order by taking payment for the goods. Our Retailer partners aim to verify prices as part of their payment processing procedures. Orders are accepted at our Retailer partners' sole discretion and we and our Retailer partners maintain the right to decline orders without giving an explanation. Colours may vary slightly from those shown on the website due to the limitations of Internet technology.

Sales tax
Value Added Tax (VAT) is calculated on shipping destination. It is included in the price for orders shipped to destinations within the European Union (EU). For orders shipped to destinations outside the EU the price excludes VAT but orders may be subject to local sales tax or import duty. These are not included in our prices and customers remain liable for payment of these taxes or duties on or following delivery.
Orders shipped outside the EU but paid for with a card registered to an address within the EU are subject to VAT. This VAT will not be displayed in the shopping basket but will be added to the amount charged to your card.
Payment methods
All orders must be paid for by credit or UK debit cards. Unfortunately, we do not accept payment by cheque or postal order, and you cannot pay in installments. All our Retailers accept Visa (including Delta) and Mastercard. Some also accept American Express, Maestro, Solo, and Eurocard. You can find out which cards a Retailer accepts by adding the product to the basket, proceeding to checkout, and viewing the drop down 'card type' menu. All prices are in pounds sterling (£) and credit / debit card transactions for orders outside the UK will be converted by the card company at their current exchange rates. When ordering from more than one Retailer you will see individual transactions for each Retailer on your card statement.
Delivery arrangements
Your shopping basket displays the goods you have purchased, the Retailer who will supply them and an indication of the delivery timescale. We will notify you if your goods are not able to be despatched within this timescale, e.g. some made to order goods may take longer. The delivery costs for each Retailer vary and are shown depending on the shipping destination and the delivery service selected. Any delivery times quoted are estimates, based on availability and normal delivery time in working days.
Please note that there are some products that we do not ship to certain destinations, which will be indicated in the shopping basket.

Cooling off period and cancellation / returns
We want you to be satisfied every time you shop with us. Our "no quibbles" guarantee means that if for any reason you are unhappy with the goods purchased you may cancel your order and return the goods to the Retailer within 7 working days from receipt of the goods, you will receive a refund within 30 days of cancellation. It is your responsibility to take care of the goods before returning them, and they must be returned in a state where they can be resold. This does not affect your statutory rights as a consumer. We will not accept return of:
Goods made to the customer's personal specifications
Pierced earrings / body jewellery
Bulk Orders are only returnable at the suppliers discretion.

Most Retailers will provide returns information in with the delivery note/invoice. Where you wish to return goods and do not have returns information, you can contact customer Care for the returns address of the particular supplier(s) you ordered from. Whichever way, it is vital that you enclose a covering letter with the return detailing your name, full address, order number and reason for return (please also specify whether you require an exchange or refund). We recommend that you use Recorded Delivery, as proof of shipping is not proof of receipt.

Unless the goods are defective, damaged or not as specified on your order acknowledgement, you are responsible for the cost of returning goods to the Retailer. We recommend that you use Recorded Delivery, as proof of shipping is not proof of receipt. If however the goods are faulty then the postage costs will be refunded.
