9.1   You agree that a contract for the sale and purchase of a product or products will come into force between you and one or more of the Makers (Sellers) listing their products for sale on www.themakerplace.co.uk, and accordingly that you commit to buying the relevant product or products, in the following circumstances:

(a)     You (The Buyer) must add the products you wish to purchase to the shopping cart, and then proceed to the checkout;

(b)     if you are a new user, you must either create a buyer account with the website and log in; or checkout as a Guest, otherwise, if you have registered for an account, you must enter your login details;

(c)     once you have logged in, or chosen to proceed as a Guest, you must confirm the order and your consent to these terms and conditions;

(d)     you will be transferred to the website of the appointed payment service provider, Stripe, and the payment service provider will handle your payment to the seller (Maker); you must submit payment in full via credit or debit card;

(e)     www.themakerplace.co.uk will then send you an automatically generated acknowledgement of payment;

(f)      once the seller (Maker) has checked whether they are able to meet the buyer’s order, the seller will send to the buyer an order confirmation (at which point the order will become a binding contract between the seller and you (the buyer)) or the seller will confirm by email that they are unable to meet your order. By completing and submitting the electronic order form you are making an offer to purchase goods which, if accepted by the seller, will result in a binding contract. Neither submitting an electronic order form or completing the checkout process constitutes our acceptance of your order. The contract of sale will be formed only if your order is explicitly accepted by the seller via an email confirmation.

10 .  Terms and Conditions of Sale

10.1   As the seller is a trader and the buyer is a consumer, the provisions of Section 11 shall be incorporated into the contract of sale and purchase between a buyer and a seller.

10.2   Both buyers and sellers undertake to comply with the agreed terms and conditions of sale and purchase

11.   Distance contracts: cancellation right

11.1   The buyer may withdraw an offer to enter into a contract with a seller through our website or cancel a contract entered into with a seller through our website (without giving any reason for the withdrawal or cancellation) at any time within the period:

(a)     beginning upon the submission of the buyer’s offer; and

(b)     ending at the end of 14 days after the day on which the goods come into the buyer’s physical possession or the physical possession of a person identified by the buyer (when completing the order form on the website) to take possession of them (or, if the contract is for delivery of multiple goods, lots or pieces of something, 14 days after the day on which the last of those goods, lots or pieces comes into the buyer’s physical possession or the physical possession of a period identified by the buyer to take possession of them).

11.2   In order to withdraw an offer to contract or cancel a contract on the basis described in this Section 15, the buyer must inform the seller of the buyer’s decision to withdraw or cancel (as the case may be). The buyer may inform the seller by means of any clear statement setting out the decision. In the case of cancellation, the buyer may inform the seller using the cancellation form that we or the seller will make available to the buyer. To meet the cancellation deadline, it is sufficient for the buyer to send the communication concerning the exercise of the right to cancel before the cancellation period has expired.

11.3   If the buyer cancels a contract on the basis described in this Section 11, the buyer must send the products back to the seller (to the address specified by the seller on our website) or hand them over to the seller or a person authorised by the seller to receive them. The buyer must comply with this obligation without undue delay and in any event not later than 14 days after the day on which the buyer informs the seller of the decision to cancel the contract. The buyer must pay the direct cost of returning the products.

11.4   If the buyer cancels an order in accordance with this Section 11, the buyer will receive from the seller a full refund of the amount paid to the seller in respect of the order including the costs of delivery to the buyer, except:

(a)     if the buyer chose a kind of delivery costing more than the least expensive kind of delivery that the seller offers, the seller reserves the right to retain the difference in cost between the kind of delivery the buyer chose and the least expensive kind of delivery that the seller offer; and

(b)     as otherwise provided in this Section 11.

11.5   If the value of the products returned by the buyer is diminished by any amount as a result of the handling of those products by the buyer beyond what is necessary to establish the nature, characteristics and functioning of the products, the seller may recover that amount from the buyer up to the contract price. The seller may recover that amount by deducting it from any refund due to the buyer or require the buyer to pay that amount direct to the seller. Handling which goes beyond the sort of handling that might reasonably be allowed in a shop will be “beyond what is necessary to establish the nature, characteristics and functioning of the products” for these purposes.

11.6   The seller will refund money using the same method used to make the payment, unless the buyer has expressly agreed otherwise. In any case, the buyer will not incur any fees as a result of the refund.

11.7   Unless the seller has offered to collect the products, the seller will process a refund due to the buyer as a result of a cancellation on the basis described in this Section 11 within the period of 14 days after the day on which the seller receive the returned products or (if earlier) after the day on which the buyer supplies to the seller evidence of having sent the products back. If the seller has not sent the products at the time of withdrawal or cancellation or has offered to collect the products, the seller will process a refund due to the buyer without undue delay and, in any case, within the period of 14 days after the day on which the seller is informed of the withdrawal or cancellation.

11.8   The buyer will not have any right to cancel a contract as described in this Section 11 insofar as the contract relates to:

 

(a)     the supply of newspapers, periodicals or magazines, with the exception of subscription contracts for the supply of such publications;

(b)     the supply of goods which are liable to deteriorate or expire rapidly;

(c)     the supply of non-prefabricated goods that are made on the basis of an individual choice of or decision by the buyer, or goods that are clearly personalised;

(d)      the supply of sealed goods which are not suitable for return due to health protection or hygiene reasons, where such goods have been unsealed by the buyer; and

(e)     the supply of goods which are, according to their nature, inseparably mixed with other items after delivery
