Guest brosville

much to my amazement, our local trading standards people are a bit over-keen ,and insist on detailed terms and conditions being displayed on the website - I was given the job of applying them to a friend's - he handed me 8 sheets of A4 covered with civil service bollockese! I 'phoned the local office, and enquired politely if I had to paste the entire eight pages of rhubarb - "no" - "well, can you give me an idea of the precise shortened form that you would find acceptable "no"- could you point me to a website that is complying so that I could get a rough idea of what I should put? - "no" - "so if I precis it, would you check that it's acceptable? - "no" - "so how do I know if I've got it right or not?" - "we'll let you know!" - so I wandered off, and after much head scratching, came up with the following - thankfully the following has been "vetted" by the East Sussex Stasi, and has found to be correct - do use it as you wish - hopefully it'll save a few people from the wasted day I had sorting it out! :blink:


Terms & Conditions

"The Small print" - (terms and conditions)If you buy from us over the internet, you are entering into a legally binding contract - we are an English company, and trade under English law; prices are inclusive of VAT at the current rate - we provide a VAT receipt which you can use to reclaim it from Customs & Excise (if applicable).

Postage is added to the cost of the goods at the time of purchase, which are either sent by Royal Mail or Interlink

We offer a seven "working" days "no quibble" guarantee - email us immediately if you want to return goods, and we will arrange a refund.

Any manufacturer's guarantees offered with new goods are in addition to, and don't affect your normal statutory rights

Second hand equipment is offered with a 3 month guarantee, unless expressly marked - again, in addition to your normal rights

In the event of a complaint of any sort, just get in touch, preferably by email, and we will do our utmost to resolve the matter swiftly & amicably - it is as much in our interest as yours that any problems are dealt with quickly (and painlessly) -

We don't track you, install spyware, fill your mailbox with spam, or otherwise indulge in "dirty internet tricks""The Small print" - (terms and conditions)"

I got so p*ssed off with their attitude, I went for brevity and clarity - a few titchy paragraphs, condensed from eight sodding pages!
