Orders and contract information
Please take the time to read and check your order at each stage of the order process
If you order via the website, after you place an order you will receive an e-mail from us acknowledging that we have received your order. However, please note that this does not mean that your order has been accepted. We will confirm our acceptance to you by sending you an e-mail that confirms that the Products have been dispatched (“Dispatch Confirmation”). The Contract between us will only be formed when we send you the Dispatch Confirmation.
Every time you order Products from us, the Terms in force at the time of your order will apply to the Contract between you and us.
If we are unable to supply you with a Product, for example because that Product is not in stock or no longer available, we will inform you of this (usually by e-mail) and we will not process your order. If you have already paid for the Products, we will refund you the full amount including any delivery costs charged as soon as possible.
Our right to vary these terms
We may revise these Terms as they apply to your order from time to time to reflect changes in relevant laws and regulatory requirements and our business practices.
If we have to revise these Terms as they apply to your order, we will contact you to give you reasonable advance notice of the changes and let you know how to cancel the Contract if you are not happy with the changes. You may cancel either in respect of all the affected Products or just the Products you have yet to receive. If you opt to cancel, you will have to return (at our cost) any relevant Products you have already received and we will arrange a full refund of the price you have paid, including any delivery charges.
Returns and refunds
Prior to dispatch of the Products you are able to cancel your order at any time.
You have a legal right to cancel a Contract. This right starts from the date of the Dispatch Confirmation (the date on which we e-mail you to confirm our acceptance of your order), which is when the Contract between us is formed.
Your deadline for cancelling ends 14 days after the day you receive your Products (and if we deliver in instalments this date is 14 days after the date the last Products are delivered). This means that during the relevant period if you change your mind or decide for any other reason that you do not want to receive or keep a Product, you can notify us of your decision to cancel the Contract and receive a refund. Advice about your legal right to cancel the Contract is available from your local Citizens' Advice Bureau or Trading Standards office.
Please be aware that this cancellation right does not apply in the case of sealed audio or sealed video recordings or sealed computer software, once these Products are unsealed after you receive them.
If you cancel your Contract we will:
refund you the price you paid for the Products. However, please note we are permitted by law to reduce your refund to reflect any reduction in the value of the goods, if this has been caused by your handling them in a way which would not be permitted in a shop.
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 (provided that this is a common and generally acceptable method). For example, if we offer delivery of a Product within 3-5 days at one cost but you choose to have the Product delivered within 24 hours at a higher cost, then we will only refund what you would have paid for the cheaper delivery option.
make any refunds due to you as soon as possible and in any event within the deadlines indicated below:
- if you have received the Product, 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;
- if you have not received the Product, 14 days after you inform us of your decision to cancel the Contract.
If you have returned the Products to us because they are faulty or mis-described, we will refund the price of the Products in full, together with any applicable delivery charges, and any reasonable costs you incur in returning the item to us.
We will refund you on the credit card or debit card used by you to pay.
Unless the Product is faulty or not as described, you will be responsible for the cost of returning the Products to us.
Because you are a consumer, we are under a legal duty to supply Products that are in conformity with this Contract. As a consumer, you have legal rights in relation to Products that are faulty or not as described. These legal rights are not affected by your right of return and refund in this clause 6 or anything else in these Terms. Advice about your legal rights is available from your local Citizens' Advice Bureau or Trading Standards office.
How to cancel your order
To cancel a Contract, you just need to let us know that you have decided to cancel. The easiest way to do this is to complete the cancellation form which can be obtained by emailing us at email@example.com or contact our customer services team by telephone on 01422 329471 or by post to Empire House, 11 Mulcture Hall Road, Halifax, HX1 1SP. If you are e-mailing 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 e-mail or by post, then your cancellation is effective from the date you send us the e-mail or post the letter to us.

You can send it back to Empire House, 11 Mulcture Hall Road, Halifax, HX1 1SP.
We will contact you with an estimated delivery date which will be within 30 days after the date of the Dispatch Confirmation (the date on which we e-mail you to confirm our acceptance of your order). Occasionally our delivery to you may be affected by an Event Outside Our Control. Our responsibilities when this happens is set out in clause 12.
If no one is available at your address to take delivery, we will leave you a note that the Products have been returned to our premises, in which case, please contact us to rearrange delivery.
Delivery shall be completed when we deliver the Products to the address you gave us or you or a carrier organised by you collect them from us and the Products will be your responsibility from that time.
You own the Products once we have received payment in full, including all applicable delivery charges following dispatch of the Products to you.
If we miss the 30 day delivery deadline for any Products then you may cancel your Contract 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.
If you do not wish to cancel your order straight away, or do not have the right to do so under this clause 8 above, you can give us a new deadline for delivery, which must be reasonable, and you can cancel your Contract if we do not meet the new deadline.
If you do choose to cancel your Contract for late delivery under these Terms, you can do so for just some of the Products or all of them. 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.
Unfortunately, we do not deliver to addresses outside the UK. You may place an order for Products from outside the UK, but this order must be for delivery to an address in the UK.
Price and delivery charges
The prices of the Products will be as quoted in a babyballet® Directory at the time you make your order. We take all reasonable care to ensure that the prices of Products are correct at the time when the relevant information was entered in a babyballet® Directory.
Each babyballet® Directory contains a large number of Products. It is always possible that, despite our reasonable efforts, some of the Products in a babyballet® Directory may be incorrectly priced. If we discover an error in the price of the Products you have ordered, we will contact you to inform you of this error and we will give you the option of continuing to purchase the Product at the correct price or cancelling your order. We will not process your order until we have your instructions. If we are unable to contact you using the contact details you provided during the order process, we will treat the order as cancelled and notify you in writing. Please note that if the pricing error is obvious and unmistakeable and could have reasonably been recognised by you as a mispricing, we do not have to provide the Products to you at the incorrect (lower) price.
Prices for our Products may change from time to time, but changes will not affect any order you have already placed.
The price of a Product includes VAT (where applicable) at the applicable current rate chargeable in the UK for the time being. However, if the rate of VAT changes between the date of your order and the date of delivery, we will adjust the VAT you pay, unless you have already paid for the Products in full before the change in VAT takes effect.
The price of a Product does not include delivery charges. Our delivery charges are as advised to you during the order process, before you confirm your order.
How to pay
You can only pay for Products using a debit card or credit card. We accept all major credit and debit cards with the exception of American Express: Payment for the Products and all applicable delivery charges is in advance. Upon receiving your order we carry out a standard pre-authorisation check on your payment card to ensure there are sufficient funds to fulfil the transaction. Goods will not be dispatched until this pre-authorisation has been completed. Your card will be debited once the order has been accepted.
We take the following cards
