Checking and correcting

It is up to you to check that your order is correct. You can correct any inputting errors prior to the submission of your order. If, however, you realise that you have made a mistake then contact us and we will see whether it is possible to amend the order. 

Invoices

Invoices will be sent by e-mail after the transaction has been authorized.

Orders cannot be withdrawn without our agreement

By submitting your order via our eStore you are irrevocably offering to buy the goods on these terms and conditions. Our Returns policy is set out below.

Acceptance of orders

We are not obliged to supply goods or services to you until we have confirmed acceptance of your order. This is when the contract is made. We confirm acceptance by an email, which will come from “Granta eStore”.

Risk

Most of the products sold via our eStore are software, delivered via download or online subscription.  We will provide instructions for accessing these products by email.  In the unlikely event that you are unable to access these products, please use the Returns process described below. 

For physical products, such as books, risk of loss or damage to the goods passes to you when the goods leave our premises. We usually ship these products using a courier, with damage during transit covered by the courier’s insurance.

Ordering allows us to use your personal data

By submitting your order you are also allowing us to use your personal details for the purposes of supplying the goods or services concerned (including passing your details onto couriers and other subcontractors for the purpose of fulfilling your order). The basis upon which we obtain and use personal data is set out in our Privacy Statement (http://www.grantadesign.com/privacy.htm).

Where applicable, delivery charges are clearly shown within the eStore – they will always be listed at the point of order confirmation.

Software products available by download or Internet subscription will normally be made available to you via an e-mail, which will normally be sent immediately, but may take a short while to arrive.

Physical products, such as books, will normally be shipped to you within five (5) working days.

VAT

Security

Ordering Online

The Granta eStore encrypts all personal information including name, address and credit/debit card details using industry standard Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology. This is intended to ensure that information passed between your computer and this site cannot be read in the unlikely event that it is intercepted by someone else.

For other products (e.g., books, courses) our liability to you for any losses and costs connected with the sale of products or services to you shall not exceed the amount you originally paid us for the products or services in respect of which your claim relates.

Nothing in this statement limits our liability to you in the event of death or personal injury resulting from our negligence or based on a proven claim against us of fraudulent misrepresentation.
