Thank you for using the Conwy Pearls website (the ‘Website’). This section provides you with information about the terms and conditions that govern your use of the Website (the ‘Terms and Conditions’). If you have any questions about this section of the Website, please do not hesitate to contact us.
- The Contract between You and Us
We must receive payment in whole for the price of the goods that you order before your order can be accepted. Once payment has been received by us we will confirm that your order has been received by sending an e-mail to you at the e-mail address you provide in your order form. This is not an Order Acceptance from Conwy Pearls. Our acceptance of your order takes place on the dispatch to you of the products ordered unless we notify you that we do not accept your order, or you have cancelled your order. Our acceptance of your order brings into existence a legally binding contract between us. Only adults (persons aged 18 and over) are entitled to enter into legally binding contracts and as a result are the only people entitled to transact through this site. Any other individuals who are unable to perform legally binding contracts are prohibited from ordering goods using this site. If you do not qualify do not use this site.
- Pricing, Delivery and Discount Codes
2.1 The prices payable for goods that you order are as set out in our website.
2.1.1 All our prices are in UK pounds sterling. You will be billed in UK pounds and if you purchase from outside the UK, currency fluctuations and credit card charges may make a difference to the amount billed on your credit card.
2.2 You may be required to pay extra for delivery; it might not be possible for us to deliver to some locations. Our delivery charges are set out in our Website.
2.3 We may, from time to time, offer promotional discount codes (either directly or via third parties), which may apply in respect of any, or certain specified, purchases made though this Website.

- Right for you to Cancel your Contract
3.1 Subject to 3.3 below, you may cancel your contract with us for the goods you order at any time up to the end of the seventh working day from the date you receive the ordered goods. You do not need to give us any reason for cancelling your contract, nor will you have to pay any penalty.

With UK orders, the first exchange will be sent free of charge but subsequent exchanges will have standard delivery charges applied. International exchanges will be charged standard delivery.
