If your parcel actually wasn't delivered correctly, you must notify Ralph & Co within 48 working hours of confirmed delivery. You can let us know straight away on firstname.lastname@example.org.
Unfortunately, if there is a problem and we are not notified within 48 hours, although we will do our very best to remedy the issue we will not be held liable for any delays, charges, returns and or losses. This is a 'time is of the essence' clause.
If your parcel has been returned to Ralph & Co due to incorrect postage details supplied by you, we are not able to refund your postage costs. If you qualified for free delivery we reserve the right to deduct £4.95 postage from your payment card to re-send the parcel.

Here at Ralph & Co, we've done our very best to design a website that's both appealing to the eye, fun to use, informative and accurate. However sometimes we make mistakes and sometimes so do manufacturers who supply us with product information and advice.

Sometimes, customers may wish to change something in their order so if you want or need to change your order after this time, please email us as soon as possible on email@example.com to avoid disappointment.

When you make a purchase with Ralph & Co we'll send you an email confirmation of receipt. We're predominantly an online only business and whilst we try our very best to list our inventory as accurately as possible, we can only accept your order and agree the contract of supply when we dispatch your items - this is because we may be out of stock of something you've ordered, or if we think a mistake has been made but we're pleased to say this 'should' never happen.
By purchasing from us you agree that the information you supply to us is accurate and supplied truthfully to the best of your knowledge. Please understand that we cannot be held liable for delivery errors if you have supplied us with incorrect information.

We accept most credit and debit cards in existence. All orders must be paid for before we dispatch your goods to you. Ralph & Co does not store any credit or debit card numbers or other payment details, instead our third party payment services (PayPal and Shopify) handle this for us.
International orders are shipped using a courier partner. You, the customer, are responsible for any VAT/tax payable, duty, handling/processing fees, customs clearance charges and any other non mentioned fees required by the country of importation.
As clever as we are, there is no way for us to predict the destination country's actions, customs rules, regulations and laws, so please research this before your purchase from us and be prepared to meet these said costs. We cannot be held liable for any costs, mistakes (if yours) or return fees.
