Please read the following carefully. Your use of the firebox.com web site ("Firebox.com") and purchase of the products (or services) ("Products") on it means that you agree to these terms and conditions ("Terms").
When you place an Order for a Product in any of the ways described above ("Order") you are offering to buy it for the price stated, subject to these Terms.
When you place your Order online we will send you an email to confirm that we have received it. This email confirmation will be produced automatically so that you have confirmation of your Order details. The fact that you receive an automatic confirmation does not necessarily mean that we will be able to meet your Order. Once we have sent the confirmation email we will then check availability and contact you with a further email. If the Product is available and the details of the Order are correct, this email will be deemed an acceptance and will specify delivery details and confirm the price of the Products purchased. If the Product is not available we will also let you know by email. Please be aware that once you have successfully placed an order and it has been released to our warehouse we are unable to amend any of the order contents or details provided.
Firebox may cancel any sale and not supply Products if it is reasonable to do so and may change or discontinue the availability of Products at any time at its sole discretion. If an Order is cancelled, any payment made for the Products will be refunded in full. This does not affect your Statutory Rights.
All new Orders are deemed separate and each is treated individually.
Products marked "Firebox UK First" are those where Firebox.com is (or was originally) the first UK-based Internet retailer to supply this product to the UK market.
The price for each Product is shown on firebox.com and includes relevant sales taxes (such as VAT) at the current rate.
We always try to make sure that the prices on firebox.com are accurate but errors may occur. If we discover an error in pricing of the Products in your Order we will inform you as soon as possible using the contact details you supply us with. We will then give you the option of reconfirming your Order at the correct price or cancelling it. (If we are unable to reach you we will treat the Order as cancelled). If an Order is cancelled, any payment made for the Products will be refunded in full.
You will be notified of the delivery costs automatically before you submit your credit card details, based on the delivery address you specify. For more information about our delivery charges for despatches to UK addresses click here.
Prices are quoted on Firebox.com in UK pounds - outside the UK your credit card company should exchange the amount charged to the currency of your country at the current rate but you may use the Firebox "currency converter" to estimate the price in your currency. Please note that the "currency converter" is only a guide and may not accurately reflect current exchange rates. Please note that both charges and refunds are in UK pounds and Firebox.com Ltd cannot be held responsible for any loss due to exchange rate fluctuations.
Non-EU customers are responsible for Import Duty/Tax in their respective countries. Unfortunately we cannot advise you what these costs will be - please consult your local customs office for more information.
You must pay for your Order before it is delivered and you can do so by credit card, debit card or gift voucher.
Firebox.com Gift Vouchers / Promotional Codes
We try to keep firebox.com as up to date as possible but cannot guarantee that particular Product will always be available. If we can't supply a Product you will not be charged for it and we will refund or re-credit your account with the amount debited by us.
All offers are available while stocks last. If we are unable to supply a Product you have Ordered, we will notify you as soon as we can after receiving your Order. If this happens, you may cancel your Order and we will refund you the money you have paid for it.
Firebox delivers to destinations inside and outside the UK.
You will be notified of the delivery costs automatically before you confirm your payment. For more information about our delivery charges for despatches to UK addresses click here.
Delivery outside the EU may be subject to local import taxes, which are your responsibility where they apply. If so, the shipping company should advise you the charges due or else you should consult your local customs office. Unfortunately we cannot advise you what these charges will be and Firebox is not responsible for them. If these local import/custom charges are refused or not paid by the customer, then the item could be returned to Firebox or possibly destroyed if too expensive to return. Please note: If this happens, we may not be able to refund you for your order. We would not be able to refund any original postage costs paid and can only refund for the returned product/s minus any costs incurred in returning them to Firebox.
Firebox offers a range of delivery services depending on the address we are delivering to, and carrier weight/size restrictions. For Mainland UK addresses we offer Standard Delivery (3-5 day service), 1st Class Delivery (1-2 day service), Courier Delivery (signed for) and Saturday Delivery. Please see the Checkout page for details on these services for your postcode. Each Product has a link on the product page stating the estimated delivery time for that Product and you should refer to these for more details about usual delivery times.
Orders are despatched either by TNT (3-5 day untracked service) Royal Mail (1st Class) or by courier (Parcelforce or DPD depending upon the weight and contents of the package). Our couriers require a signature and operate between 8am and 6pm on weekdays, so please specify an address where someone will be able to sign for your order between these hours. We will make every effort to deliver within the time stated on firebox.com but we will not be liable for any loss caused to you by late delivery.
For International Express Services (via DPD or Parcel Force) an estimated time of arrival is provided at checkout. These are based upon the carrier estimates for delivery and are indicative but not guaranteed.
For international deliveries with Spring Global (untracked) most deliveries arrive within 3-7 working days dependent upon the destination; however please allow up to 15 days for delivery before contacting us.
If the Products are not delivered within the estimated delivery time which we quote, please contact us by telephone or email and we will try and ensure that you receive your order, as quickly as possible, or if you wish you may cancel your order and we will refund the money you have paid. Please note that while items sent by Royal Mail usually arrive within 1-2 days, Royal Mail stipulate that only items still not delivered after 15 working days can be officially classified as lost. Please Order from Firebox with enough time to prevent any loss or disappointment resulting from the delivery time as Firebox cannot be responsible for this.
