These Shopping Cart Terms & Conditions are supplemental to any additional terms that might apply to your use of this Website and which may be set out separately. These Shopping Cart Terms & Conditions will apply to any contract between us for the sale of Products to you ("Contract").

Placing an Order
4. By placing an Order with us you will be deemed to have read, understood and agreed to these Shopping Cart Terms & Conditions. If you are unclear about any aspect of these terms, then you should contact us before placing an Order with us either by telephone on +44 (0)20 3301 7219, by email at: email@example.com or by post using the address given below.
5. By placing an Order via this Website you are making an offer to us to purchase/acquire the Products detailed in your Order upon the terms described in your Order. Our Website's shopping pages will guide you through the steps you need to take to place an Order with us. Our order process allows you to check and amend any errors before submitting your Order to us. Please read and check the details carefully at each stage of the order process.
6. Once you have placed an Order we will send you a confirmation that your Order has been received but this is not a confirmation that your offer to purchase/acquire the Products has been accepted by us. A Contract between you and Bible and Gospel Trust for the sale/acquisition of our Products will only exist once an Order has been accepted, processed and despatched to you.
7. Where a payment is due from you in order to satisfy an Order your credit/debit card will be authorised when your Order is placed and processed but you will not be charged for the value of the Products until the point that they are despatched to you. This does not affect your statutory rights.
8. All dates quoted for delivery are estimated delivery dates only and may be subject to change and we can accept no liability for any loss or damage (whether direct or indirect) for delivery at any time other than the estimated date for delivery. Details of our delivery charges and policy can be obtained upon request.
9. We aim to hold sufficient stocks of all Products advertised on our website. However, occasionally an item will be out of stock and availability of Products is subject to change without notice. If an item becomes unavailable this will be highlighted in your online shopping basket. The stock status for your order will also be notified to you on your Order confirmation.
Your right to cancel & our returns policy
10. As a consumer, you have a legal right to cancel a Contract (and receive a refund) if you change your mind or decide for any other reason that you do not want to receive or keep a Product. Please note, this cancellation right does not apply in the case of items which have been personalised and any Products which are unsealed after their delivery.
11. Your legal right to cancel a Contract starts from the date of the Order Confirmation (the date on which we email you to confirm our acceptance of your Order), which is when the Contract between us is formed. Your deadline for cancelling the Contract is the date 14 days after the day on which you receive the Product or, if the Products are delivered in instalments, 14 days after the day on which you receive the last instalment of the Products ordered.
12. To cancel a Contract, you just need to let us know that you have decided to cancel. You can contact us to cancel a Contract by email, by telephone or by post using the contact details set out below. If you are emailing us or writing to us please include details of your Order to help us to identify it. If you send us your cancellation notice by email or by post, then your cancellation is effective from the date you send us the email or post the letter to us.
13. If you cancel your Contract we will:
- refund you the price you paid for the Products. Products to be returned must include a copy of the paperwork for the original purchase in the package. Please note we are permitted by law to reduce your refund to reflect any reduction in the value of the Products, if this has been caused by your handling them in a way which would not be permitted in a shop environment;
- 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; if you elected for express delivery, the additional costs will not be refunded; and
- make any refunds due to you as soon as possible and in any event within the deadlines indicated below:
i. if you have received the Product and we have not offered to collect it from you: 14 days after the day on which we receive the Product back from you or, if earlier, the day on which you provide us with evidence that you have sent the Product back to us. For information about how to return a Product to us, see paragraph 15;
ii. if you have not received the Product or you have received it and we have offered to collect it from you: 14 days after you inform us of your decision to cancel the Contract.
14. We will refund you on the credit card or debit card used by you to pay.
15. If a Product has been delivered to you before you decide to cancel your Contract:
- then you must return it to us (to the returns address set out in clause 7.10) without undue delay and in any event not later than 14 days after the day on which you let us know that you wish to cancel the Contract; and
- unless the Product is faulty or not as described (in this case, see clause 7.7), you will be responsible for the cost of returning the Products to us.
16. If, at the time that you take delivery of them, any Products delivered to you are not of satisfactory quality, do not match the description in your Order or are not fit for their purpose you may return them to us and we will be more than happy to offer you an exchange. Alternatively, if you have paid for the Products and you wish to have a refund we will provide one. If you have returned the Products to us under this paragraph 16 because your Order was wrong, or if the Products are faulty or not as described, we either exchange the Products or refund the price of the Products in full, together with any applicable delivery charges, and any reasonable delivery costs you incur in returning the item to us. None of your statutory rights are affected by these Shopping Cart Terms & Conditions.
17. To return any Products to us, please enclose the invoice (which comes with your Order) or a copy of it (and we strongly recommended that you retain a copy for your records if at all possible) and clearly mark whether you would like a refund or exchange. Pack the items back in the parcel with the invoice (or copy) and send it back to: Chelwood House, Cox Lane, Chessington, Surrey, KT9 1DN, UK
18. When returning items you are strongly recommended to obtain proof of posting. We cannot accept responsibility for parcels lost in transit.
19. We will contact you with an estimated delivery date, which will normally be within 60 days of the date of the Order Confirmation (the date on which we email you to confirm our acceptance of your Order).
20. Delivery of an Order shall be completed when we deliver the Products to the address you gave us and the Products will be your responsibility from that time.
21. You own the Products once we have received payment in full, including all applicable delivery charges.
22. If we miss the 60 day delivery deadline for any Products then you may cancel your Order straight away if any of the following apply:
- we have refused to deliver the Products;
- delivery within the delivery deadline was essential (taking into account all the relevant circumstances); or
- you told us before we accepted your Order that delivery within the delivery deadline was essential.
23. If you do not wish to cancel your Order straight away, or do not have the right to do so under paragraph 22, you can give us a new deadline for delivery, which must be reasonable, and you can cancel your Order if we do not meet the new deadline.
24. If you do choose to cancel your Order for late delivery under paragraph 22 or paragraph 23, 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 or allow us to collect them, and we will pay the costs of this. After you cancel your Order we will refund any sums you have paid to us for the cancelled Products and their delivery.

25. Prices (if any) are subject to change without notice, but changes will not affect any Order you have already placed.
