Terms & conditions
The contract between us
Any contract for purchases made through the Glenn Colquhoun website will be with Glenn Colquhoun T/A Old King (sole trader, herein referred to as 'Glenn Colquhoun') whose office is situated in Levin, New Zealand. Old King is a wholly New Zealand owned business.
All prices stated are in New Zealand Dollars and your account will be charged in NZD. We must receive payment of the whole of the price for the goods that you order before your order can be processed. Payment of the advertised price will be taken at the point of order. Charging your payment method does not mean that an order has been accepted. Once payment has been processed, we will confirm that your order has been received by sending an email to you at the email address you provide. The email will include your name, the order number and the total price charged. Acceptance of your order (which will happen when we dispatch your order) brings into existence a legally binding contract between us on these terms. Any term sought to be imposed by you in your order will not form part of the contract.
We will not process any orders in the case of errors or inaccuracies regarding the goods (including the advertised price of the goods) appearing on our website. If an error or inaccuracy is discovered with regards to the advertised price of the goods that you have ordered, we will contact you as soon as possible by email and reserve the right to cancel your order.
This Site is for personal and non-commercial use. You may not use the site to place orders which will be, or are being, sold on to a third party. If you are suspected of using the site in this way then we reserve the right to withdraw from any relevant contract(s) and cancel your order(s).
Your right of cancellation
If you are an individual and are not buying goods on behalf of a business, you can cancel your order without giving any reason within 14 days from the day on which you receive your items (or the last item if they were shipped separately). You must notify us of your cancellation. You can notify us through our online contact form.
You will be responsible for the cost of returning the item to us, unless we delivered it to you in error or it is faulty. You must send the item back to us no later than 14 days from the day on which you notified us of your cancellation, by following the instructions we send you.
We will refund the price of the item no later than 14 days from the day on which we receive the item back from you or, if earlier, the day on which you provide evidence reasonably acceptable to us that you have sent the item back. We'll refund the same means of payment as you used to make your purchase.
Availability of goods you order
If we have insufficient stock to deliver the goods ordered by you, we will notify you as soon as possible and any sum debited by us from your payment method will be credited to your account and we will notify you by email at the address given by you in your order form. The refund will be made as soon as possible and in any event within 30 days of your order. We will not be obliged to offer any additional compensation or to supply the goods in this situation. We try to update our website as quickly as we can to minimise disappointment but this process can take a couple of hours. Please note that the price the goods are offered for are as displayed in your online basket, but that is subject to the rest of these terms.
Delivery of goods to you
We will post, or arrange a courier on your behalf, for the goods ordered by you to the person and address you give us at the time you make your order. Delivery will be made as soon as possible after your order is accepted and in any event within 30 days of dispatch of the order. All delivery times quoted on the web site are estimates only, depending on where in the world they books are being sent to, and based on availability, normal processing and handling times. You will become the owner of the goods you have ordered when the goods are dispatched to you from our office.
Goods & Services Tax (GST)
All prices displayed on our website are in New Zealand Dollars, inclusive of your local Tax (GST, or applicable local sales tax, VAT and similar taxes). When ordering goods from us for delivery overseas (outside New Zealand), you may be subject to import duties and taxes that are levied once the package reaches your country. Any additional charges for customs clearance must be borne by you; we have no control over these charges and cannot predict what they may be.
Customs policies vary widely from country to country, so you should contact your local customs office for further information. Additionally, please note that when ordering from us, you are considered the importer of record and must comply with all laws and regulations of the country in which you are receiving the goods.
Nothing in this contract creates any right which is enforceable by any person who is not a party to the contract.
We shall have no liability to you for any failure to deliver goods you have ordered or any delay in doing so or for any damage or defect to goods delivered that is caused by any event or circumstance beyond its reasonable control.
