We will take all reasonable care, in so far as it is in our power to do so, to keep the details of your order and payment secure, but in the absence of negligence on our part we cannot be liable for any loss you may suffer if a third party procures unauthorised access to any data provided by you when accessing or ordering from the Website.

We may send multiple orders received at the same time in one package or send your order in more than one package if some items are not in stock or on back order.

SHAKESBEARD® accepts no liability for loss of an order, where the customer requests that their order be left in a safe place or with a neighbour in the event that there is no one at the customer shipping address to accept delivery.

9. Price and Payment

All prices are in £ GBP Pounds Sterling. All prices are correct at the time of entering the information onto the system. We reserve the right, however, to change prices at any time without notice to you.

Payment can be made by any major credit or debit card. Payment will be debited and cleared from your account before the dispatch of your goods or the provision of the service to you.

In the unlikely event that the price shown on the checkout page is wrong, and we discover this before accepting your order, we are not required to sell the goods to you at the price shown. We always try and ensure that the prices of goods shown on our website are accurate, but occasionally genuine errors may occur. If we discover an error in the price of the goods that you have ordered we will let you know as soon as possible and give you the option of reconfirming your order at the correct price or cancelling it. If you cancel your order and you have already paid for the goods, then you will receive a full refund.

You confirm that the credit or debit card that is being used is yours. All credit/debit cardholders are subject to validation checks and authorisation by the card issuer. If the issuer of your payment card refuses to or does not, for any reason, authorise payment to us we will not be liable to you for any delay or non-delivery.

You may only use one discount code with each order. We reserve the right to reject or cancel any orders where one or more discount codes are added to the basket.

10. Eligibility to Purchase

To be eligible to purchase goods on this Website and lawfully enter into and form contracts on this Website under English law you must:

  • if an individual, be 18 years of age or over and
  • register your real name, address, phone number, e-mail address and any other details requested; and

By offering to purchase goods and services you represent to us that you are 18 years of age or over.

11. Offers and Promotions

To redeem a discount via use of a valid promotional code; the code must be entered at the checkout page of the initial order process. Promotional discount codes can only be redeemed ONCE per person. Each offer is valid until the time specified in relation to the promotional voucher. Each promotional code is valid for online product purchases from https://www.shakesbeard.co.uk only and is not valid in conjunction with any other promotion or discounted offer and cannot be applied retrospectively. No cash alternative is available. These offers exclude the purchase of Gift Vouchers and sale items.

Such promotions entitle you, at the time of ordering, to a saving on a new product order placed through the website. We reserve the right to decline to accept orders where, in our opinion, a promotional code is invalid for the order being placed. We reserve the right to withdraw any offer or promotion and alter these terms and conditions at any time without prior notice.

Free gifts are offered from time to time and must be claimed at the time an order is placed. Options to claim free gifts (where applicable) will appear during the checkout process. Simply choose from any of the free gifts available where the order meets the criteria for the offer to become valid. If a gift or gifts are not showing as expected, then it could be because the order does not meet the required criteria. Typical criteria usually requires that a customer places an order that meets a minimum order value that will trigger an offer to display, i.e. “Claim a Free Personalised Beard Brush when you spend £100” In this instance the order would need to meet a minimum order value of £100 after any discounts or promotions have been used that might reduce the overall order value. If you believe that you have met the criteria for an offer but the offer is still not showing at checkout, then it could be because you are viewing the checkout page in a older previously cached version of the web page. In which case we would suggest clearing your browser cache and/or resetting your browser to see if that resolves the issue. If in doubt contact us prior to placing the order so that we may assist as failure to claim a free gift at the time of placing an order may invalidate any claim to such offer as our offers and promotions change frequently.

Anyone found to be abusing promotions by intentionally manipulating browser code will be banned from shopping with us and any outstanding or future orders will be cancelled.
