FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

 

Is ordering online secure?



Yes. We take the utmost care with the information that you provide us when placing an order on our website (or through any other means). The server that hosts our bookstore encrypts the transmission of all credit card and personal customer information using the Internet- standard SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) protocol. During the encryption process, information is scrambled into small bits of code that cannot be read as they travel to us over the Internet. Once we receive the encrypted information, we use a private, one-of-a-kind key to decode it.

Refunds and Returns

If you're looking to return a faulty or incorrect item, please get in touch so we can get this sorted for you.


We operate on a NO REFUNDS POLICY. If you want to exchange for a different colour, the price of both colours must be the same as the price at which you bought the original product. We permit this within 14 days from the date you receive your order, if the product qualifies for an exchange is left to our discretion.

You’ll know if the new item has the same product code as your original item, because the size or colour will be available in the drop down menu on the product page for the original item you ordered.

If the item is out of stock in the size or colour you have opted for, then a refund will be processed instead.

If you want a different item, the item you want is sold under a different product code, then you'll need to place a new order.

When you return your order, just pop your returns note in the parcel with the following details marked on it:

  • Your order number

  • Which items you’d like exchanged

  • The new size or colour you’d like of the items to be exchanged


If you haven’t indicated on your returns note that you’d like an item exchanged or the new size or colour required, then you should immediately contact us with the full details of your order and exchange.
