3 OUR CONTRACT WITH YOU
3.1 Offer and acceptance. When you place your order, you are offering to buy the product(s) or services from us. Our acceptance of your order will take place when we email you to accept it, at which point a contract will come into existence between you and us.
3.2 If we cannot accept your order. We will inform you of this and will not charge you for the product or service. If we have charged you, you will be refunded any price you have paid. This might be because the product is out of stock, because of unexpected limits on our resources which we could not reasonably plan for, because we have identified an error in the price or description of the product or because we are unable to meet a delivery deadline specified.
3.3 Produce and service availability is displayed on our website. We rely on our computer systems for stock control and, consequently, information may occasionally be inaccurate. In such circumstances we will contact you to try to resolve the issue, but we reserve the right to cancel the contract and refund you in full.
3.4 We will assign an order number to your order and tell you what it is when we accept your order. It will help us if you can tell us the order number whenever you contact us about your order

4 OUR PRODUCTS
4.1 Products may vary slightly from specification/pictures.
We try to provide accurate measurements/dimensions in respect of products but these may not include protruding features such as controls or handles. Images of the products on our website are for illustrative purposes only. Although we have made every effort to display the colours accurately, we cannot guarantee that a device's display of the colours accurately reflects the colour of the products. Your product may vary slightly from those images.
The packaging of the product may vary from that shown in images on our website.
4.2 We sell returned and refurbished items. In such circumstances the product description will be as stated on (or linked from) the relevant product page. Your rights under these terms and conditions are based on such descriptions.
4.3 Graded Stock means second hand or used devices which are graded according to the condition of the handset. For example:
(a) Grade A means Pristine - These devices will be in Pristine condition and look as good as new. Cosmetically, the gadget will look near perfect. If the gadget has any imperfections, they will be very minor. The screen will be unmarked. These devices are ideal for people who want to save money on refurbished tech but want to maintain the highest quality in their handset. This device has been fully tested, is in full working order and has been restored to the latest operating system.
(b) Grade B means Excellent - These devices will be in Excellent condition. Cosmetically, the gadget may show signs of slight use, including minor scratches to the screen and casing. It won't have cracks on the screen or casing. These devices are ideal for people who want to feel safe in the knowledge their phone looks great regardless of whether they are using a case to cover up any minor scratches. It’s been fully tested, is in full working order and has been restored to the latest operating system
(c) Grade C+ means Very Good - These devices are in Very Good condition. The screen will have minimal cosmetic issues. There will be signs of wear and tear on the casing and rear of the device. The previous owner likely used a screen protector, but no case. These devices are ideal for someone that will put the phone straight into a case but still want a clean screen, whilst saving money! The device has been fully tested to ensure it is in fully working order.
(d) Grade C means Good - These devices are in good condition. There will be some minor signs of wear and tear on the screen and casing. The previous owner didn’t use a case or screen protector as they weren’t too bothered about minor marks. These devices are ideal for someone who is not fussed about scratches and only cares about the quality of the software, whilst saving as much as possible. This device has been fully tested to ensure it is in full working order.

7.4 All orders delivered via DPD (over £50) must be signed for – it is your responsibility to ensure you are available to receive delivery.

This will be updated on your order within My Account on www.4gadgets.co.uk. If you are unable to receive your delivery the second time, your order will be returned to our warehouse and you will need to arrange for your order to be re-shipped at your own expense.

We will not be responsible for supplying the products late or not supplying any part of them if this is caused by you not giving us the information we need within a reasonable time of us asking for it.

8 YOUR RIGHTS TO END THE CONTRACT
8.1 You can always end your contract with us. Your rights when you end the contract will depend on what you have bought, whether there is anything wrong with it, how we are performing and when you decide to end the contract:
(a) If what you have bought is faulty or misdescribed you may have a legal right to end the contract (or to get the product repaired or replaced or a service re-performed or to get some or all of your money back), see clause 11;
(b) If you want to end the contract because of something we have done or have told you we are going to do, see clause 8.2;

(d) In all other cases (if we are not at fault and there is no right to change your mind), see clause 8.7.
8.2 Ending the contract because of something we have done or are going to do. If you are ending a contract for a reason set out at (a) to (e) below the contract will end immediately and we will refund you in full for any products which have not been provided and you may also be entitled to compensation. The reasons are:
(a) we have told you about an upcoming change to the product or these terms which you do not agree to (see clause 6.2);
(b) we have told you about an error in the price or description of the product you have ordered and you do not wish to proceed;
(c) there is a risk that supply of the products may be significantly delayed because of events outside our control;
(d) we have suspended supply of the products for technical reasons, or notify you we are going to suspend them for technical reasons, in each case for a period of more than 30 days; or
(e )you have a legal right to end the contract because of something we have done wrong
8.3 Exercising your right to change your mind (Consumer Contracts Regulations 2013). For most products bought online you have a legal right to change your mind within 14 days and receive a refund. These rights, under the Consumer Contracts Regulations 2013, are explained in more detail at clause 9.6
8.4 When you don't have the right to change your mind. You do not have a right to change your mind in respect of:
(a) perishable goods such as food, flowers, newspapers or magazines cannot be returned;
(b) gift cards;
(c) downloadable software products;
(d) books with obvious signs of use;
(e) sealed audio or sealed video recordings or sealed software, once these products are unsealed after you receive them;

(g) any item that is returned more than 30 days after delivery;
(h) digital products after you have started to download or stream these;
(i) services, once these have been completed, even if the cancellation period is still running;
(j) health and personal care items, products that are intimate or sanitary goods, hazardous materials, or flammable liquids or gases
(k) products sealed for health protection or hygiene purposes, once these have been unsealed after you receive them; or
(l) any products which become mixed inseparably with other items after their delivery
8.5 How long do I have to change my mind? How long you have depends on what you have ordered and how it is delivered.
(a) Have you bought services? If so, you have 30 days after the day we email you to confirm we accept your order. However, once we have completed the services you cannot change your mind, even if the period is still running. If you cancel after we have started the services, you must pay us for the services provided up until the time you tell us that you have changed your mind.
(b) Have you bought digital content for download or streaming? if so, you have 30 days after the day we email you to confirm we accept your order, or, if earlier, until you start downloading or streaming. If we delivered the digital content to you immediately, and you agreed to this when ordering, you will not have a right to change your mind.
(c) Have you bought goods?, if so you have 30 days after the day you (or someone you nominate) receives the goods, unless:
(i) Your goods are split into several deliveries over different days. In this case you have until 30 days after the day you (or someone you nominate) receives the last delivery to change your mind about the goods.
(ii) Your goods are for regular delivery over a set period. In this case you have until 30 days after the day you (or someone you nominate) receives the first delivery of the goods.
8.6 Ending the contract where we are not at fault and there is no right to change your mind. Even if we are not at fault and you do not have a right to change your mind (see clause 8.1), you can still end the contract before it is completed, but you may have to pay us compensation. A contract for goods or digital content is completed when the product is delivered, downloaded or streamed and paid for. A contract for services is completed when we have finished providing the services and you have paid for them. If you want to end a contract before it is completed where we are not at fault and you have not changed your mind, just contact us to let us know. The contract will end immediately and we will refund any sums paid by you for products not provided but we may deduct from that refund (or, if you have not made an advance payment, charge you) reasonable compensation for the net costs we will incur as a result of your ending the contract.

in all other circumstances (including where you are exercising your right to change your mind) you must pay the costs of return.
9.4 If you are responsible for the costs of return and we are collecting the product from you, we will charge you the direct cost to us of collection.
9.5 We will refund you the price you paid for the products including delivery costs, by the method you used for payment. However, we may make deductions from the price, as described below.
9.6 Deductions from refunds if you are exercising your right to change your mind:
(a) We may reduce your refund of the price (excluding delivery costs) to reflect any reduction in the value of the goods, if this has been caused by your handling them in a way which would not be permitted in a shop. If we refund you the price paid before we are able to inspect the goods and later discover you have handled them in an unacceptable way, you must pay us an appropriate amount.
(b)The maximum refund for delivery costs will be the costs of delivery by the least expensive delivery method we offer. For example, if we offer delivery of a product within 3-5 days at one cost but you choose to have the product delivered within 24 hours at a higher cost, then we will only refund what you would have paid for the cheaper delivery option.
(c) Where the product is a service, we may deduct from any refund an amount for the supply of the service for the period for which it was supplied, ending with the time when you told us you had changed your mind. The amount will be in proportion to what has been supplied, in comparison with the full coverage of the contract
9.7 We will make any refunds due to you as soon as possible. If you are exercising your right to change your mind then:
(a) If the products are goods and we have not offered to collect them, your refund will be made within 14 days from the day on which we receive the product back from you or, if earlier, the day on which you provide us with evidence that you have sent the product back to us. For information about how to return a product to us, see clause 9.2.
(b) In all other cases, your refund will be made within 14 days of your telling us you have changed your mind
9.8 Once your return is received and inspected, we will send you an email to notify you that we have received your returned item. We will also notify you of the approval or rejection of your refund. If you are approved, then your refund will be processed, and a credit will automatically be applied to your credit card or original method of payment, within a certain amount of days.
9.9 Late or missing refunds (if applicable). If you haven’t received a refund yet, first check your bank account again. Then contact your credit card company, it may take some time before your refund is officially posted. Next contact your bank. There is often some processing time before a refund is posted.

12 PRICE AND PAYMENT
12.1 The price of the product (which includes VAT) will be the price indicated on the order pages when you placed your order (excluding delivery). We take all reasonable care to ensure that the price of the product advised to you is correct. However please see clause 12.3 for what happens if we discover an error in the price of the product you order
12.2 We will pass on changes in the rate of VAT between your order date and the date we supply the product. We will adjust the rate of VAT that you pay, unless you have already paid for the product in full before the change in the rate of VAT takes effect.
12.3 What happens if we got the price wrong. It is always possible that, despite our best efforts, some of the products we sell may be incorrectly priced. We will normally check prices before accepting your order so that, where the product's correct price at your order date is less than our stated price at your order date, we will charge the lower amount. If the product's correct price at your order date is higher than the price stated to you, we will contact you for your instructions before we accept your order. If we accept and process your order where a pricing error is obvious and unmistakeable and could reasonably have been recognised by you as a mispricing, we may end the contract, refund you any sums you have paid and require the return of any goods provided to you.
12.4 You must pay for all goods, products and services in advance. We accept payment via the methods stated on the order page.
12.5 If you think an invoice is wrong, please contact us promptly to let us know. You will not have to pay any interest until the dispute is resolved. Once the dispute is resolved we will charge you interest on correctly invoiced sums from the original due date.
OUR RESPONSIBILITY FOR LOSS OR DAMAGE SUFFERED BY YOU
13.1 We are responsible to you for foreseeable loss and damage caused by us. If we fail to comply with these terms we are responsible for loss or damage you suffer that is a foreseeable result of our breaking this contract or our failing to use reasonable care and skill, but we are not responsible for any loss or damage that is not foreseeable. Loss or damage is foreseeable if either it is obvious that it will happen or if, at the time the contract was made, both we and you knew it might happen, for example, if you discussed it with us or notified us during the sales process.
13.2 We do not exclude or limit in any way our liability to you where it would be unlawful to do so. This includes liability for death or personal injury caused by our negligence or the negligence of our employees, agents or subcontractors; for fraud or fraudulent misrepresentation; for breach of your legal rights in relation to the products as summarised at clause 11.2; and for defective products under the Consumer Protection Act 1987.
13.3 When we are liable for damage to your property. If we are providing services in your property, we will make good any damage to your property caused by us while doing so. However, we are not responsible for the cost of repairing any pre-existing faults or damage to your property that we discover while providing the services.
13.4 If defective digital content which we have supplied damages a device or digital content belonging to you and this is caused by our failure to use reasonable care and skill we will either repair the damage or pay you compensation. However, we will not be liable for damage which you could have avoided by following our advice to apply an update offered to you free of charge or for damage which was caused by you failing to correctly follow installation instructions or to have in place the minimum system requirements advised by us.
13.5 We are not liable for business losses. We only supply the products for domestic and private use. We will have no liability to you for any loss of profit, loss of business, business interruption, or loss of business opportunity.
13.6 Subject to the preceding provisions of this clause 13, our aggregate liability to you is limited to a sum equal to the amount paid by you for the relevant item of goods, service or content in respect of one incident or series of incidents attributable to the same cause.
