Products are offered subject to availability. If a Product is not available, you shall be informed thereof as soon as possible. Such information may be provided to you:

  1. a) at the time of placing your order. If a Product that can be bought online is unavailable it will state that the desired Product is out of stock; or
  2. b) following the validation of your order. If a Product becomes unavailable prior to delivery, you will be contacted via email.

4.5. If we are unable to supply you with a Product, for example, because that Product is not in stock or no longer available or because of an error on our Website, we will inform you of this by email and you can decide how you wish to proceed with your order or let us know if you wish to cancel your order.

4.6. If you have already paid for the Products, NAOS will take the necessary steps with Shopify or PayPal (as applicable), NAOS’s designated payment partners, to deduct the price(s) of the Product(s) that is/are unavailable from the amount debited from your bank account as soon as possible.

If Products have been delivered to you and there is a payment incident or in the event of incomplete or partial payment, you undertake, at your cost, to return the Products to us at our first request.
  2. b) On the date of delivery, the risks (in particular of theft or damage) concerning the Products are transferred to you.

4.10. Samples:

Any samples offered are subject to availability. Any samples provided by NAOS for you to try are for your personal use only.

  1. PRICES AND PAYMENT

5.1. The prices of the Products are given in pounds sterling. We use our best efforts to ensure that the prices of Products are correct at the time of completing an order. However, please see Clause 5.7 for what happens if we discover an error in the price of the Product(s) you ordered.

5.2. The price of a Product includes VAT at the applicable rate chargeable in the UK on the date of the order. However, if the rate of VAT changes between the date of your order and the date of delivery, we will adjust the VAT you pay, unless you have already paid for the Products in full before the change in VAT takes effect.

5.3. In the event that you are using a valid promotional code provided by NAOS, this cannot be used in conjunction with another offer or promotion.

5.4. The price invoiced to you is the price stated on the Dispatch Confirmation (as defined below) sent via email by NAOS.

5.6. You accept NAOS’s right to modify its prices at any time, however the Products will be invoiced on the basis of the tariffs in force when the order is recorded, subject to the availability of such Products. The tariff in force is that stated on the Website, unless there is a typographical error.

5.7. Our Website contains a large number of Products. It is always possible that, despite our reasonable efforts, some of the Products on our Website may be incorrectly priced. If we discover an error in the price of the Products you have ordered we will contact you to inform you of this error and we will give you the option of continuing to purchase the Product at the correct price or cancelling your order. We will not process your order until we have your instructions. 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 in writing at the postal address provided during the order process.

Please note that if the pricing error is obvious and unmistakeable and could have reasonably been recognised by you as a mispricing, we do not have to provide the Products to you at the incorrect price.

5.8. Payment:

All payments must be made immediately over the internet. Unless the server is unavailable, you may pay with a credit or debit card. MasterCard, Visa and Maestro cards are accepted. We recently added ApplePay and Paypal.

  • the expiry date;
  • the name of cardholder; and
  • the 3-digit safety code on the back of the card (MasterCard and Visa only).

NAOS reserves the right to refuse all orders or deliveries if the limits stated in the Introduction above are exceeded, if there is an existing dispute with you, in the event of total or partial failure by you to pay for that order or a previous order or if credit/debit card payment authorisation is refused by the banking organisations.

As part of the fight against online fraud, information concerning orders will be checked by Shopify Payments and PayPal.

You undertake to supply the exact delivery address when placing your order for the Products, which can be different to the billing address you provide.

9.3. If no one is available at your address to take delivery, we will leave you a note to advise that the Products have either been left with a neighbour who has signed for the delivery or to advise that the Products have been returned to our premises. In the latter case, to rearrange delivery please contact our NAOS Customer Care Department by email at info@naos-store.co.ukor by telephone on 0800 055 6822 (Monday to Friday 9am to 5pm).

9.4. Delivery of an order shall be completed when we deliver the Products to the address you give to us when completing your order on our Website and the Products will be your responsibility from that time.

9.5. You own the Products once we have received payment in full, including all applicable delivery charges.

9.6. Delivery problems:

NAOS will not be liable or responsible if your delivery is affected by an Event Outside Our Control (see Clause 13) including in the event of overly long delivery time caused by the transportation services, and in the event of the loss of the Products ordered. If a delivery is late, you must inform our NAOS Customer Care Department as soon as possible, by email sent to info@naos-store.co.uk

Orders should in any event be delivered at the latest thirty (30) days after the date on which you receive a Dispatch Confirmation email from us.

9.7. Upon receipt of the Products ordered, you must check that the Products are as per your order completed on our Website. Any delivery anomalies (missing or broken Products, parcel damaged, etc.) must be noted by you on the delivery note including the returns form presented to you when the parcel is delivered and must imperatively be notified to our NAOS Customer Care Department, by email sent to support@naos-store.co.uk

  1. a) we have refused to deliver the Product(s); or
  2. b) delivery within the Estimated Delivery Time was essential (taking into account all the relevant circumstances) and you specifically communicated this to us before we accepted your order.

9.10. If you do choose to cancel your order for late delivery under Clause 9.8 or 9.9, you can do so for just some of the Products or all of them, unless splitting them up would significantly reduce their value. If the Products have been delivered to you, you will have to return them to us, and we will pay the reasonable costs of this subject to inclusion of an applicable returns delivery receipt. After you cancel your order we will refund any sums you have paid to us for the cancelled Products and their delivery.

  1. YOUR CONSUMER RIGHT OF CANCELLATION, RETURN AND REFUND

10.1. If you are a consumer, you have a legal right to:

  1. a) withdraw from the Contract at any time before the Contract is entered into (i.e. the period from when an order is placed until the Dispatch Confirmation email is sent); or
  2. b) cancel a Contract at any time from when the Contract is entered into (i.e. from the date the Dispatch Confirmation email is sent) until 14 days after the day on which you receive the Product(s).

For example: if we provide you with a Dispatch Confirmation email on 1 January and you receive the Product on 10 January you may cancel at any time between 1 January and the end of the day on 24 January.

10.2. This means that during the relevant periods at 10.1 a) or b) above if you change your mind or decide for any other reason that you do not want to receive or keep a Product, you can notify us of your decision to cancel the Contract and receive a refund. Advice about your legal right to cancel the Contract is available from your Citizen’s Advice Bureau or Trading Standards Office.

10.3. However this cancellation right does not apply in the case of a Contract for the supply of sealed goods which are not suitable for return due to health protection and hygiene reasons, if they become unsealed after delivery. Certain Products are cellophane wrapped and/or contain a seal to be removed before use and fall within the category of ‘sealed goods’.

10.4. To cancel a Contract, you need to let us know that you have decided to cancel. We will email you to confirm we have received your cancellation.

To complete an order form cancellation ( exchange or refund ) please contact us at support@naos-store.co.uk

If you contact us please quote your order number to help us identify your order. If you send us your cancellation form by email or post, then your cancellation form is effective from the date you send us the email or post the letter to us. For example, you will have given us notice in time as long as you get your cancellation form into the last post on the last date of the cancellation period or email us before midnight on that day.

10.5. If you cancel your Contract you will need to pay the cost of returning the Product(s) to us and do this as soon as possible and, in any event, no later than 14 days after the date you communicated the cancellation of the Contract. NAOS does not accept returns with delivery charges due.

  1. a) You must send Product(s) back with the Product Return and Refund Form received with your order to:

NAOS Customer Care Department

BDM Logistics

Armada Point, 16 Armada Way, Beckton,

London E6 7AB

  1. b) You shall assume all reasonable risks linked to the return of Product(s) and take reasonable care thereof whilst in your possession. If you fail to return any Product the direct cost of recovery of that Product by NAOS shall be borne by you.
  2. c) If you return all of the Product(s) you have ordered you should also return any free samples or free promotional products you may have received within your order.

10.6. If you cancel your Contract we will:

  1. a) refund you the price you paid for the Products. We will refund you using the same means of payment you used for the initial transaction (unless expressly agreed otherwise). Please note we are permitted by law to reduce your refund to reflect any reduction in the value of the goods, if this has been caused by your handling them in a way which would not be permitted in a shop;
  2. b) refund, only where the full order is returned, any delivery costs you have paid to receive it, although as permitted by law the maximum refund will be the cost of delivery by the least expensive delivery method we offer. For example, if we offer standard delivery of a Product within a certain timeframe at one cost but you select express delivery of a Product within a shorter timeframe at a higher cost, then we will only refund what you would have paid if you had selected the cheapest delivery method we offer. For the avoidance of doubt, if the Standard Delivery method we offer is free then you will not be refunded any delivery costs even if you opted for another delivery method which was not free;
  3. c) make any refunds due to you no later than 14 days after the day on which we receive the Product(s) back from you or, if earlier, the day on which you provide us with evidence (i.e. date stamped written statement from an established postal service provider listing the sender and the recipient) that you have sent the Product(s) back to us.

10.7. If you have returned a Product to us because it is faulty, damaged or you have not received the Product you ordered, we will examine the Product as quickly as possible. If the non-compliant nature of the Product is confirmed by us, we will refund the price of the Product in full. Where the full order is returned we will refund any delivery costs you have paid, although as permitted by law, the maximum refund will be the costs of delivery by the least expensive delivery method we offer (as set out in 11.6 b) above).

We will pay the reasonable delivery costs you incur in returning the Product(s) to us subject to the inclusion of a returns proof of postage receipt. We request that you return such Product(s) to us via the Post Office ‘Royal Mail Signed For’ delivery method.

10.8. Because you are a consumer, we are under a legal duty to supply Products that are in conformity with the Contract. As a consumer, you have legal rights in relation to Products that are faulty or not as described. These legal rights are not affected by your right of return and refund in this clause or anything else in the General Conditions of Sale. Advice about your legal rights is available from your local Citizens’ Advice Bureau or Trading Standards office.

10.9. The right of cancellation can only be exercised by you, the purchaser of the Product, and not by a third party.

14.4. If we fail to insist that you perform any of your obligations under these Terms, or if we do not enforce our rights against you, or if we delay in doing so, that will not mean that we have waived our rights against you and will not mean that you do not have to comply with those obligations.
