None of the information below affects your statutory rights. We are a UK based company and all contracts for the sale of goods entered into by Starboard Locker Limited on the website will be subject to the laws of England and Wales.
Acceptance of Order
Once you have made your choice and your order has been placed, you will receive an email acknowledging the details of your order. This email is NOT an acceptance of your order, just a confirmation that we have received it.
Unless you cancel your order, acceptance of your order and completion of the contract between you and Starboard Locker Limited will be completed when we email you to confirm the goods have been dispatched. The sale contract is therefore concluded in England, and the language of the contract is English. Neither our third party payment processor nor our nominated courier has the authority to accept an order on behalf of Starboard Locker Limited.
We reserve the right not to accept your order in the event, for example, that we are unable to obtain authorisation for payment, or that shipping restrictions or additional carriage charges apply to a particular item, that the item ordered is out of stock or does not satisfy our quality control standards and is withdrawn.
We may also refuse to process and therefore accept a transaction for any reason or refuse service to anyone at any time at our sole discretion. We will not be liable to you or any third party by reason of our withdrawing any merchandise from the Site whether or not that merchandise has been sold, removing, screening or editing any materials or content on the Site, refusing to process a transaction or unwinding or suspending any transaction after processing has begun.
Whilst every effort is made to make sure details on our website are accurate, we may from time to time discover an error in the pricing of products. If we discover an error in the pricing of a product in your order, we will let you know as soon as possible. We shall be under no obligation to accept or fulfil an order for a product that was advertised at an incorrect price, or additional carriage charges apply, and reserve the right to cancel such an order that has been accepted or is in transit. If you order a product that is priced incorrectly for any reason, we will email or telephone you to inform you that we have not accepted your order and/or that the relevant part of your order has been cancelled. If you have already paid for the goods, we shall refund the full amount as soon as we are able. In the event that products are recalled in transit, we will process your refund once the products have been returned to us.
