Your acceptance of the Terms and Conditions is given when you make a purchase from Kingdom of Origin. It is important to read these Terms and Conditions carefully before buying goods from our website. These terms tell you who we are, how we will provide goods to you, how you and we may change or end the contract, what to do if there is a problem and other important information. If you have any questions about any aspects of our website, please contact us.

2.3 How we may contact you. If we have to contact you, we will do so by telephone or by writing to you at the email address or postal address you provided to us in your order.

2.4 “Writing” includes emails. When we use the words “writing” or “written” in these terms, this includes emails.

3. General Information

We will endeavour to make sure that all information on our website is accurate and correct at all times and will try to resolve all information errors on the website as soon as reasonably possible. If you believe that such an error has affected your purchase, please contact us although we must stress, this does not admit liability on Kingdom of Origin’s part.

4. Our contract with you

4.1 How we will accept your order. Acceptance of your order and formation of a contract of sale takes place when your order has been dispatched and we have sent you an email confirming this. You agree that your order is an offer to purchase the product(s) listed in your order to us on the terms and conditions set out herein. You agree that an order is engaging in a contract with Kingdom of Origin Limited. All orders are subject to acceptance and availability. Items that are placed in your shopping basket are not reserved and may be purchased by other customers. We will inform you if we are unable to complete your order.

Please note that after submitting an order to us, we will send you an order acknowledgement email. This email will include your order number, details of the items you have ordered from us and delivery details. Please note that this email is an acknowledgement of your order only and does not constitute an acceptance of your order.

When placing an order for the first time, you may be required to or may be offered the option to register with us and complete certain required fields on a form. Where we ask you to provide and use identifying names and passwords to access restricted parts of our website, it is on the condition that you shall be responsible for ensuring that such details are kept confidential and secure at all times.

Order status may take up to 2 hours to update after your order has been placed. Please note that payment will be debited from your card when your order is in the process of being prepared for dispatch.

4.2 If we cannot accept your order. If we are unable to accept your order for any reason, we will inform you of this and will not charge you for the product. This might be because the product is out of stock, because of unexpected limits on our resources which we could not reasonably plan for, because a credit reference we have obtained for you does not meet our minimum requirements, because we have identified an error in the price or description of the product or because we are unable to meet a delivery deadline you have specified.

4.3 Your order number. We will assign an order number to your order when we send you an email acknowledgment following the placing of your order. It will help us if you can tell us the order number whenever you contact us about your order. This is not an order confirmation or order acceptance from Kingdom of Origin.

4.4 Different Countries. Kingdomoforigin.co.uk ships to the United Kingdom, Europe (Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Russia) and the United States of America. Import duties and taxes will be the responsibility of the customer should goods be ordered from our website for delivery outside the UK. These costs cannot be predicted and are outside our control.

4.5 Currency. Your card will be charged in the currency you choose: GBP £, EUR € or USD $. You may change the shipment country and the currency displayed at any time. Prices for shipment to the UK will be shown in GBP £. Where shipment is outside Europe to the Americas, prices are shown in USD $. Prices for shipment to all other countries will be shown in EUR €.

4.6 Pricing. Prices shown on the website are in Pounds, Dollars or Euros and are inclusive of VAT at the applicable rate. Prices do not include delivery costs.

All prices and offers remain valid as advertised from time to time. The Pounds, Dollar or Euros price of a product displayed on the Website at the time the order is accepted will be honoured, except in cases of obvious error.

Product prices are set at the beginning of each season using existing currency exchange rates. These prices are subject to change if the applicable currency exchange rate changes before your order is accepted or the items are subject to markdowns at any time during the selling period.

If you are a customer whose credit/debit card is not denominated in Pounds, Dollars or Euros, the final price will be calculated in accordance with the applicable exchange rate on the day your card issuer processes the transaction. All orders are placed with Kingdom of Origin Limited, which is a UK entity. Your card issuer or payment method provider may therefore apply other international bank charges. We have no control and cannot predict the amount of these charges. Please contact your issuing bank before placing your order if this applies to you.

4.7 VAT. If you are in the UK and choose to have the goods shipped to the UK, prices will be shown inclusive of VAT (where applicable) at the current rate. If the country of shipment is outside the UK but within the EU, prices will be shown in euros inclusive of VAT. All other countries are shown a price excluding VAT as no VAT will be due on these orders.  For any queries in respect of VAT, we recommend contacting HMRC or for more information you can also visit hmrc.gov.uk/vat.

8.2 Insurance. Kingdom of Origin insures each purchase during the time it is in transit until it is delivered to your specified delivery address.

8.3 Signature. We require a signature for any goods delivered, at which point responsibility for your purchased goods passes to you. If you have specified a recipient who is not you for delivery purposes (for example as a gift) then you accept that evidence of a signature by them (or at that delivery address) is evidence of delivery and fulfilment by us, and transfer of responsibility in the same way.

8.4 Instalments. We shall be entitled to supply your purchases in instalments and each instalment shall be deemed to constitute a separate contract with us, and we shall be entitled to supply only part of an order.

8.5 Timings. Please note that we aim to dispatch all orders within 48 hours. Delivery times appearing on the site are estimates and are to be used as a guide only and commence from the date of dispatch. In any event, we will deliver the goods to you within 30 days of the day on which we accept your order. Kingdom of Origin is not responsible for any delays caused by destination customs clearance processes.

8.6 Delivery costs. The costs of delivery will be as displayed to you on our website.

8.7 Delays. We are not responsible for delays outside our control. If our supply of the products is delayed by an event outside our control, then we will contact you as soon as possible to let you know and we will take steps to minimise the effect of the delay. Provided we do this, we will not be liable for delays caused by the event, but if there is a risk of substantial delay you may contact us to end the contract and receive a refund for any products you have paid for but not received.

9. Returns and Exchanges

9.1 Right to cancel under the Consumer Contracts (Information, Cancellation and Additional Charges) Regulations 2013 (ICACRs)

If you are based in the EU, then under the Consumer Contracts (Information, Cancellation and Additional Charges) Regulations 2013 (ICACRs), you have the right to cancel your order with us within 14 days provided you give us written notice.

The cancellation period will expire 14 days from the day after the day on which you (or someone you nominate, other than a carrier) receives the last item of your order. To exercise the right to cancel, you must inform us by email to: koocares@kingdomoforigin.co.uk

For orders cancelled under the ICACRs, we will issue you with a full refund including the shipping cost paid by you. We may make a deduction from the reimbursement for loss in value of any goods supplied, if the loss is the result of unnecessary handling by you.

We will make reimbursement without undue delay, and not later than: (i) 14 days after the day we receive back from you any of the goods supplied; or (ii) (if earlier) 14 days after the day you provide us with evidence that the good have been returned; or (iii) if no goods were supplied, 14 days after the day on which we are informed about your cancellation.

We will make reimbursement using the same means of payment as you used for the initial transaction, unless you have expressly agreed otherwise; in any event, you will not incur any fees as a result of the re-imbursement.

In the event that we have sent goods to you and you have cancelled your order, we may withhold reimbursement until we have received the goods back or you have supplied evidence of having sent the goods back, whichever is the earliest. If we do not receive the goods back, we may arrange to have them collected from you at your cost.

You shall return cancelled orders to: KINGDOM OF ORIGIN at Studio 40, The Manor, Tur Langton, Leicestershire, LE8 0PJ, without undue delay and in any event not later than 14 days from day on which you communicate your cancellation of the contract to us. The deadline is met if you send the goods before the period of 14 days has expired.

You will have to bear the cost of returning the goods. You are only liable for any diminished value of the goods resulting from the handling, other than what is necessary to establish the nature, characteristics and functioning of the goods.

9.2 Returns

When you place an order with us on kingdomoforigin.co.uk, you have 14 days from receipt of your order to request your returns number. You will receive your returns number by email. Any unsuitable items must then be returned within 14 days of receiving your returns number.

All returns should be sent back to us in the original packaging provided and the items should be returned unworn and in perfect condition with all Kingdom of Origin garment tags still attached. Returns that are damaged, soiled or returned without their original packaging and labels may not be accepted and may be sent back to you.

Before your parcel leaves our warehouse, it is properly checked and controlled by our packing team. If you receive an item which is damaged, please contact us at koocares@kingdomoforigin.co.uk immediately.

If your item is faulty, we can offer alternatives such as repair or exchanges. For more information, please contact our customer services team at the email address above.

Item(s) must be returned from the original shipping country with all relevant returns paperwork. Please ensure that the returns address label provided is attached to the outside of the box. Please note that we may not refund item(s) that are sent without the proper returns paperwork. Orders sent back from a different destination may incur additional charges and be delayed in customs.

If you need any assistance with regard to returns and exchanges, please email customer services on koocares@kingdomoforigin.co.uk

9.3 Refunds

All successfully returned items will be credited to your original method of payment. The original shipping charges will not be refunded. If your return was purchased in a currency other than your local currency, refunds will be paid in the same currency. Due to fluctuations in currency rates the amount refunded may be slightly higher or lower than the price originally paid. On receipt of return, we shall process the refund as soon as possible. If you have any queries, or wish to discuss the returns procedure in further detail, please email client services on koocares@kingdomoforigin.co.uk

10. Payment

Payment can be made by Visa, MasterCard and American Express. Payment will be debited and cleared from your account upon completion of the order process on the website. You can also use PayPal, removing the need to enter your credit card details. When you select the PayPal option at checkout, you will be directed to the PayPal site to ‘Log In’ to your PayPal account and review the total amount to pay before clicking ‘Pay Now’. Once you click ‘Pay Now’ your transaction is complete and you will be returned to kingdomoforigin.co.uk

You confirm that the credit/debit card that is being used is yours or that you have been specifically authorised by the owner of the credit/debit card to use it. All credit/debit card holders are subject to validation checks and authorisation by the card issuer. If the issuer of your payment card refuses to authorise payment to us, we will not be liable for any delay or non-delivery.

To help ensure that your shopping experience is safe and secure, we use special security systems to encrypt your payment details, making it virtually impossible for these to be read over the internet.

For your security, you will always be asked to enter your CVV code at checkout. We receive authorisation to charge your account once the order is placed and the pending transaction will be settled upon dispatch. For security and fraud prevention, all orders made with a credit or debit card are subject to authorisation and our fraud team may ask for further details before an order is processed.

We have the right to cancel your purchase without prior notification. Examples of occasions we may choose to cancel your purchase are: your card details have been flagged by our fraud screening processes or are declined by our fraud screening process.

We take reasonable care (in so far as it is in our power to do so) to keep the details of your order and payment secure, but in the absence of negligence on our part we cannot be held liable for any loss you may suffer if a third party procures unauthorised access to any data you provide when accessing or ordering from the website.

12. Our Liability To You

You have certain rights under the law, including that any items you order through this website will be of satisfactory quality, fit for their intended purpose, and will conform to your order and any description given on this website.

If we fail to comply with these Terms, we are responsible for loss or damage you suffer that is a foreseeable result of our breach of the Terms or our negligence, but we are not responsible for any loss or damage that is not foreseeable.

In no event shall our maximum aggregate liability exceed the greater of one hundred pounds (£100.00) or the sum you have paid us for the item in relation to which you have a claim. Because some countries do not allow the exclusion or limitation of liability for consequential or incidental damages, in such countries, our liability is limited to the maximum extent permitted by the laws of that country. Nothing in any warranty given in this clause affects your statutory rights.

We do not exclude or limit in any way our liability for (i) death or personal injury caused by our negligence, (ii) fraud or fraudulent misrepresentation, (iii) any breach of the terms implied by section 12 of the Sale of Goods Act 1979 (title and quiet possession), (iv) any breach of the terms implied by section 13 to 15 of the Sale of Goods Act 1979 (description, satisfactory quality, fitness for purpose and samples), (v) defective products under the Consumer Protection Act 1987, or (vi) any other liability which cannot be excluded by law.

16.5  Even if we delay in enforcing these terms, we can still enforce them later. If we do not insist immediately that you do anything you are required to do under these terms, or if we delay in taking steps against you in respect of your breaking this contract, that will not mean that you do not have to do those things and it will not prevent us taking steps against you at a later date.

16.6  Which laws apply to these terms and where you may bring legal proceedings. These terms are governed by and construed in accordance with English law and subject to the exclusive jurisdiction of the English Courts.
