Our detailed Terms and Conditions exist to protect ourselves and our customers from misunderstandings or fraud. If you are daunted by them, the spirit if not the letter of our T&C can be summed up in three short points.
www.openair.co.uk is owned and operated by Open Air Cambridge Ltd, company registration number 2514202.
All prices displayed are in Pounds Sterling and are inclusive of VAT (where applicable) at the rate in force at the time of publication. If sold VAT free they may be subject to import duties and taxes in your home country. We reserve the right to alter the price of goods and delivery charges without prior notice.
Availability of Goods. All products are offered for sale subject to availability. If an order contains some items not currently in stock we may, at our discretion part despatch your order. In such cases only ONE charge for post and packaging will be made.
All product descriptions (sizes, weights, colours, etc.) are intended as a guide only and are obtained from our suppliers or the manufacturers of the goods. If any specifications are of paramount importance to your order please verify the goods are as required before ordering. All descriptions relating to the suitability of a product for a particular purpose are to be taken as a guide only.
All orders for goods submitted to us from the order page will be treated as an offer by you to purchase the goods subject to these terms and conditions. You are responsible for ensuring the accuracy of your order including any errors or omissions in the delivery address.
When we receive your order you will be sent an automated confirmation e-mail containing an order number. This number should be quoted in all correspondence relating to your order. When your order is received by us it will be checked for any errors or omissions. In the event that any details of your order require amending we will inform you for your approval before proceeding.
For orders paid by Credit or Debit card the billing address provided must be the address that the account is registered to. This will be used by the payment processor to determine the validity of the payment. Orders may be refused if the address cannot be verified as part of this process.
We will normally despatch orders to the address that has been verified along with the payment of the order (e.g. the payment card provider or PayPal). If the delivery is requested to be made to a third part address an identifiable place of business is preferred. Further security information may be sought by us for deliveries made to a non-verified residential address which may lead to delays or cancellation of the order.
We reserve the right to refuse or cancel your order at any time if we feel it necessary, in which case we will contact you to let you know as soon as possible. We do not ship to mail forwarding companies and will refuse orders in such cases.
No contract will exist regarding any order until it is confirmed as dispatched.

Post and Packaging (P&P) charges are a contribution towards our cost of preparing and delivering your order.

All charges refer to delivery within the UK mainland and may exclude certain postcodes (eg Scottish Highlands and Islands) . Please select the appropriate area during checkout, for accurate P&P charges.
UK orders will be despatched using Royal Mail services or via the courier service DPD Local. The despatch method will be at our discretion, unless you choose a specific carrier during checkout. International orders may use other delivery methods depending on location.
Most orders will require a signature at the time of delivery.

All times quoted for delivery are approximate only and we shall not be held liable for any delay in delivery of the goods howsoever caused. Where a number of "Working Days" is quoted for delivery these days exclude weekends and public holidays.
Where delivery by a certain date is of importance to you please state this on your order under Special Instructions. We will do our best to accommodate such requests, but cannot guarantee delivery times caused by circumstances beyond our control.
Whilst every reasonable effort shall be made to keep to any predicted delivery date, time of delivery shall not be of the essence and the company shall not be liable for any losses, costs, damages or expenses incurred by the customer or any other person or company arising directly or indirectly out of any failure to meet any estimated delivery date.
Most orders will require a signature at the point of delivery. If a signature cannot be obtained, the normal procedure is for the delivery person to leave a card with instructions to you regarding how you can obtain your parcel. This may mean re-arranging delivery or visiting your local Post Office or Interlink depot.
In the event of a parcel being refused, or not collected, any cost incurred by us in retrieving or resending the goods will be payable by the customer.
Upon receipt of your order the package should be inspected to ensure no damage has occurred in transit. When packages are signed for it is on the basis that they are in good condition with no signs of having been mishandled or opened. Packages showing signs of damage or of having been opened should be rejected. If in doubt packages should be signed for with “unchecked” written next to the signature
In the unlikely event of a delivery arriving with items missing, damaged or incorrect we will, at our option, make up the shortages or replace the damaged/incorrect goods free of charge.
Alternatively we may refund the price paid for the missing or damaged/incorrect goods.
Any claim for shortages, defects or incorrect items should be made in writing by email or over the phone within 48 hours of delivery (excluding days when our office is closed). Failure to do this will be taken as acceptance of your order.

Upon receipt of the returned items we will provide a refund by the same method as the original payment.
Postage and Packaging charges from the original invoice will not be refunded unless items are returned due to an error on our part.
Refunds for unwanted goods delivered 'post free' may be reduced to cover the full cost of carriage of the initial delivery. Where part of an order that has been sent "Post Free" is returned and the adjusted order value falls below the post free threshold we reserve the right to deduct a delivery charge from any refund as if only the retained items had been ordered.
If unwanted items are returned relating to orders that are delivered outside the UK or the European Union (EU) a minimum 12% re-stocking fee will be deducted from any refund due. Carriage charges will not be refunded or reimbursed. Authorisation for such retuns must be obtained before making any return.
Unwanted goods that are returned to us beyond the above time limits, and without prior agreement, may either be returned to the sender or a re-stocking fee charged; whichever course of action is taken is entirely at the discretion of Open Air.

All warranties exclude failure due to wear and tear, misuse, modification, lack of care or maintenance or use for purposes for which the product was not originally intended.
Where orders have been delivered outside the UK we may refer any warranty claim to the agent of the manufacturer or brand of the item(s) in (or responsible for) the country where the goods were delivered.
