You agree not to reproduce, duplicate, copy, sell or resell any goods that you order.

2. The order process
When placing an order, you warrant that all information you provide is accurate and complete. You agree that your order is an offer to buy the product(s) listed in your order on the terms set out in this document.
All orders are subject to acceptance and product availability. At our sole discretion, we reserve the right to refuse to accept and therefore process an order for any reason, from anyone, at any time. This includes not processing a transaction or stopping a transaction after processing has begun. Examples of reasons why we may not accept an order are: that we are unable to obtain authorisation for payment; shipping restrictions apply to a particular item; the item ordered is out of stock; an order appears to be placed by dealers, resellers or distributors; or that you breach our terms and conditions. If your order is not accepted, we will send you an email explaining why.
After you submit an order to us, we will send you an email acknowledging your order. This email will include your order number, details of the items you have ordered, delivery details, payment method, cost (including VAT and delivery costs). Please note that this email does not constitute acceptance of your order.
You must check all the details on this order acknowledgement email are correct and contact us as soon as possible if anything is incorrect.
Acceptance of your order and formation of a contract of sale between you and www.theposterpoint.co.uk takes place when we dispatch the order to you. We will send you an email to confirm despatch.

If your delivery address is outside the UK, you may have to pay import duties, taxes and additional charges for customs clearance. Your local customs office will add these and we recommend you check rates with them.
Orders sent by standard delivery to a UK address usually take between 3 and 5 working days to arrive. All our orders are sent by courier and require a signature on delivery. The courier will attempt three deliveries. You will be sent a tracking link when your order is despatched so you can keep an eye on its progress and make sure someone is in to receive your lovely posters. Delivery times are indicative only and we will not be liable for any delay in the delivery of products. Delay in delivery will not entitle you to cancel the order unless you have given 7 days’ written notice requesting delivery to be made.
4. Prices and payment
Prices for our products are correct at the time of listing. We reserve the right to change the price of any product at any time without notice and if we discover an error in the prices listed for goods we will not be under obligation to sell at that price. Prices on product pages are listed inclusive of VAT. They exclude delivery charges, which are added during the checkout process. They are displayed before you decide to place an order.
Please note that discount offers and codes cannot be used on sale items.
We accept payment by Visa, Mastercard and American Express debit and credit card; by PayPal; and by purchase order.
If you pay by debit or credit card, payment information is encrypted using secure socket layer technology (SSL) and stored with an AES-256 encryption. The payment gateway meets all PCI-DSS requirements and additional generally accepted industry standards. Your purchase transaction data is stored only as long as is necessary to complete your purchase transaction. Once complete, your purchase transaction information is deleted.
Unfortunately the transmission of data over the internet is not completely secure. We will keep details of your order secure in so far as it is in our power, but in the absence of negligence on our part we cannot be held liable for any loss you may suffer if a third party procures unauthorised access to data you provide when you are accessing or ordering through our website. Once we have received your information, we will use strict procedures and security features to try to prevent unauthorised access.
You warrant that the credit/debit card you use is yours, or that you have authorisation from the owner to use it. You also warrant that there are sufficient funds in your account to cover payment of the product(s) ordered. All credit and debit card transactions are subject to validation checks and authorisation by the card issuer. If the card issuer refuses to authorise payment, we will not be liable for any delay or non-delivery.
If you pay by PayPal, you will be directed to the PayPal site to log into your account and complete the order as usual. We’re sorry but security rules mean we can only send your order to the address that appears on your transaction details page.
We accept school purchase orders. The process is straightforward and involves us creating an account for you and validating the purchase order number and school details before we process your order and despatch the goods. We will include a paper invoice with your order and send an electronic version to the account email address. You must pay the invoice in full within 30 days of the date of the invoice. Payment should be made by direct transfer to The Poster Point bank account given on the invoice or by sending a cheque to The Poster Point, Conyngham Hall, Bond End, Knaresborough HG5 9AY. All amounts due must be paid in full, without deduction or withholding. For more information, see ‘Using a purchase order’.
