All communications, comments, feedback, suggestions, ideas or other submissions offered to Aftershock shall be and remain the property of Aftershock. In turn, Aftershock shall be free to use the content of such communications (including ideas, inventions, concepts, techniques) for any purpose including development and/or marketing of goods and services. By participating in surveys, competitions or promotions of this site or by requesting promotional information or updates, you hereby agree that Aftershock Online may use information about you for marketing, product development or promotional purposes and is under no obligation to pay the user any compensation for any submissions.
Products seen on Aftershock Online (www.aftershockplc.com) have limited availability and are subject to supply. Descriptions, specifications, colours and pricing are subject to change at any time and without any notice.
Each product purchased is sold subject to its product description. We will take all reasonable care to ensure that all details, descriptions and prices of products appearing on the website are correct at the time when the relevant information was entered onto the system. Although we aim to keep the Website as up to date as possible, the information including product descriptions appearing on this Website at a particular time may not always reflect the position exactly at the moment you place an order. We cannot confirm the price of a product until your order is accepted in accordance with our Order Acceptance Policy.
Prices displayed on the site are quoted in GBP Pounds Sterling (£), U.S. Dollars ($) and Euros (€).
5. Refusal of Transaction
We will take all reasonable care, in so far as it is in our power to do so, to keep the details of your order and payment secure, but in the absence of negligence on our part we cannot be held liable for any loss you may suffer if a third party procures unauthorised access to any data you provide when accessing or ordering from the Website.
The technical steps required to create the contract between you and us are as follows:
You place the order for your products on the Website by pressing the confirm order button at the end of the checkout process. You will be guided through the process of placing an order by a series of simple instructions on the Website. We will send to you an order acknowledgement e-mail detailing the products you have ordered. As your product is shipped from our warehouse we will send you a dispatch confirmation email.
Order acceptance and the completion of the contract between you and us will take place on the despatch to you of the products ordered unless we have notified you that we do not accept your order or you have cancelled it in accordance with our conditions set out below.
Non-acceptance of an order may take place in the following circumstances:
- The product you ordered being unavailable from stock.
- Our inability to obtain authorisation for your payment.
- The identification of a pricing or product description error.
- You not meeting the eligibility to order criteria set out in the main Conditions of Use.
The contract will be concluded in English.
All prices are stated in either Pounds Sterling (£), US Dollars ($) and Euros (€) and are calculated on a weekly basis. Prices are inclusive of VAT (where applicable) at the current rates and are correct at the time of entering the information onto the system. The total cost of your order is the price of the products ordered plus delivery charges.
Payment can be made by any of the methods specified in the payment section of this website and payment will be debited and cleared from your account prior to despatch of orders.
You must 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 for any delay or non-delivery.
7. Discount Codes
Discount vouchers are given to you via an online code. This code will be sent to you by e-mail or mail at the relevant time. Certain codes will appear directly in your account.
Only one voucher code is usable per order. Under no circumstances can it be converted into currency. The vouchers have an expiry date which can not be changed. No new voucher can be sent or given to replace an out-of-date or unused voucher.
The use of a voucher code necessarily implies that the value of the basket (before the calculation of carriage costs) is higher than the value of the voucher, except where the particular conditions of usage of said voucher specifies a minimum amount of purchase (before the calculation of carriage costs). In this case, the value of the basket (before the calculation of carriage costs) will have to be higher than the value of the minimum purchase necessary specified for the use of the discount code.
Aftershock Online refuses to deduct from an already confirmed and paid order, the value of a discount code where the code:
- Was not entered
- Is erroneous
Use of discount codes
In order to benefit from the reduction associated with a discount code, you should click in your basket on the link "Do you have a discount code?".
After selecting the code, you should click on the "Redeem" button. The discount will then be taken from the amount of the order.
Refunding of an order containing a discount code
In the event of a total cancellation of an order which has used a discount code, we will refund you the amount debited at the time of the order (minus the delivery costs in the case of returns) and will give you another discount voucher equivalent to that used at the time of order with the same validity date.
In the event of partial cancellation, we will calculate the amount to be refunded (minus the delivery costs) and take into account the eligibility of the discount voucher used on a lower amount than the initial order placed.
If the initial order would not have enabled you to use the discount code, we will refund you the value of the product minus the amount of the code, and will give you a code equivalent to that used at the time of the order with the same validity date.
8. Shipping & Returns
Our charge for Royal Mail 1st Class Standard Delivery is £4.00 per order on all orders to all mainland UK addresses. Royal Mail Special Next Day Delivery is £5.95 per order on all orders to all mainland UK addresses. Areas inside the EU will be charged at £15 per order and areas outside the EU will be charged a flat rate of £20 per order.
