2.3.1 The prices stated by us at the time we receive your order are non-negotiable except where we discover an obvious error in the price of the Goods you have ordered as referred to in condition 2.2.6 above. All prices on our website are displayed by default in Pound Sterling (GBP) however we do allow international customers to view approximate prices in various other currencies for guidance purposes only. Your card will be charged in Pound Sterling (GBP). If you have selected an alternative currency the prices quoted are for guidance purposes only. The exact amount you are charged will depend on the exchange rate and other charges applied by your card issuer. We are not liable for the guidance prices displayed in non Pound Sterling (GBP) currencies as these are provided by a third party agency. 


2.3.2 Prices are liable to change at any time, but changes will not affect orders in respect of which we have already sent you a Shipping Confirmation Email. All product prices are set at the beginning of the season when the items become available on the website. These prices will be subject to change in the event of incremental change in the relevant currency exchange rate or when the items are reduced in price during sale periods. 


2.3.3 Our Website contains a large number of Goods and it is always possible that, despite our best efforts, some of the Goods listed on our Website may be incorrectly priced. We will normally verify prices as part of our dispatch procedures so that, where the correct price of an item is less than our stated price, we will charge the lower amount when dispatching the item to you. If an item’s correct price is higher than the price stated on our Website, we will inform you as soon as possible after receiving your order and give you the option of reconfirming your order at the correct price or cancelling it. If we are unable to contact you we will treat the order as cancelled. 


2.3.4 We are under no obligation to provide Goods to you at the incorrect (lower) price, even after we have sent you a Shipping Confirmation Email, if the pricing error is obvious and unmistakable and could have reasonably been recognised by you as a mis-pricing. 


2.3.5 All GBP prices displayed on the Website are inclusive of VAT at the prevailing rate charged in the EU. All prices exclude delivery costs, which will be added to the total amount due. Exceptions will occur if you are making an offer to purchase from a country where VAT is not chargeable.


2.3.6 Prices that are reduced for sales and promotions are only valid for a limited time. We reserve the right to adjust prices, offers, goods and specifications of goods on the Website at our discretion at any time before (but not after) we accept your order. 


2.3.7 A transaction where the customer is responsible for Delivery Duty Unpaid (DDU) will be additionally responsible for paying the relevant taxes and duties as defined by your local customs and import broker. We recommend you contact your local customs authority to set these costs before the transaction is completed.

2.4.1 We will not deduct the price from your Card until payment has been authorised and the Goods are ready to be dispatched. We may delay dispatch until receipt of authorisation for payment to be taken from the Card provided. You can pay using your credit or debit card or via PayPal.

We do not store your card details. All orders are processed through a secure checkout system provided by Sage Pay or PayPal. BAW will not be held liable in the absence of negligence in the event that you incur a loss if a third party obtains access to the details you provide when processing an order from the website.

We make every effort to deliver goods within the estimated timescales, however delays are occasionally inevitable due to unforeseen issues affecting DHL and may be subject to customs delays. BAW shall be under no liability for any delay or failure to deliver the Goods within the estimated timescales and under circumstances, with reasonable margin, delivery charges will normally not be refunded.

2.5.5 For security of all parcels, we and DHL require proof of delivery for all orders. BAW and DHL are unable to authorise parcels to be delivered without a signature.

2.5.5 (a) BAW will only deliver goods to the delivery address that you specified when you placed your order. You are responsible for providing accurate delivery addresses when placing your order and BAW will not be liable if the address that you have given and that we provide to DHL to deliver to is incorrect.

2.5.5 (b) If the intended recipient is not at the delivery address when DHL attempt to deliver, they will leave a card at the delivery address confirming that they have tried to deliver and provide instructions for the customer about how to collect the parcel or rearrange for delivery. 

2.5.5 (c) If you rearrange with DHL to redeliver the parcel to a different address to that stated on the Shipping Confirmation Email, this may incur an additional charge that is out of our control and BAW accepts no liability for the cost or safety for the redelivery of this parcel. 

2.5.6 All customers are responsible for clearing custom duties and taxes that may be imposed by your government.  Please contact your local customs office for further information. To ensure quick delivery to you, DHL will contact you prior to delivering your parcel to facilitate payment in advance via credit/debit card or by cash upon receipt at the door. For this reason, your telephone number is a required field in our checkout process so please ensure it is accurate (with your full country code). If you have not cleared the charges in advance, they will be payable upon receipt at the door. Customers will receive a separate invoice from DHL for any applicable custom duties and taxes, which is to be treated as a direct invoice between DHL and the customer. BAW takes no responsibility or liability for this third party invoice. 

2.5.7 Customers ordering parcels to the Russian Federation must provide a business or commercial address. BAW takes no liability for any parcels that are delivered to a non-business or non-commercial address.

BAW takes no liability for parcels being sent to China (People’s Republic) without a CR Number or with an incorrect CR Number provided by the customer, although BAW may attempt to contact the customer if a CR Number was not provided or provided incorrectly.

 

2.6. RETURN AND EXCHANGE OF GOODS POLICY 


2.6.1 If you are unhappy with your goods, we will offer a refund or exchange as long as the goods are returned unworn, unwashed and in a saleable condition. All items must be returned and arrive back to us within 14 days of receipt of the goods for a refund or exchange. All goods must be returned in their original packaging without any of the original labels and tags removed.
 Please note that due to hygiene reasons Hats (including but not limited to beanies, snapbacks, baseball caps) and Underwear are excluded from our Returns + Exchanges Policy and cannot be returned or their purchase refunded. When trying on items of clothing, please ensure that you are not wearing make up, perfume, aftershave or deodorant which may leave marks or a scent on the item as we will be unable to accept the return or exchange of any item where there is evidence that these instructions have not been followed. If goods are returned used, damaged or soiled, these will not be accepted and regrettably a refund or exchange will not be issued and the consumer will be liable to pay the cost of returning the goods back to them.

Refunds will be made for the original purchase amount in GBP against the original invoice, excluding the original delivery charge within 30 days on the original card used to make the purchase. 

We do quality check our stock carefully before dispatch to our customers, but in the unlikely event that you receive goods that are damaged, faulty or incorrectly supplied, we will refund or exchange the product including the original delivery charge subject to our inspection.

We will only offer exchanges for the same product in a different size subject to stock availability. We regret that we cannot be held responsible for non-delivery of returned goods. The parcel remains the customer’s responsibility until it reaches us so please keep your certificate of postage safe as your proof of return. We monitor the number of returns and exchanges made by our customers and we may refuse to accept orders if goods are returned repeatedly, although this does not affect your statutory rights. If you wish to return to us any Goods:


2.6.1(a) in respect of which you find a defect within 7 days after delivery, we will examine the returned item and, subject to confirmation of the defect by us, we will refund the price of the item.  We will usually process the refund due to you as soon as possible, and in any case, within 30 days of receiving the defective product. You will be refunded in full for the item and also refunded the original delivery charge for sending the item to you and the cost incurred by you in returning the item to us for all international customers. For UK customers we will provide a free returns label. Please note that due to Health and Safety at work regulations we require any used faulty goods to be in a clean condition before accepting them for a refund. We reserve the right to refuse Goods which are soiled as they would be rejected by our suppliers.  If we do not agree that there is a defect in Goods you return or if we refuse Goods for being soiled we will notify you by post or email to confirm our justification;
