OUR CONTRACT WITH YOU
When you submit an order to us, this does not mean we have accepted your order for the Product. Our acceptance of the order will take place as described below. If we are unable to supply you with the Goods, we will inform you of this and we will not process your order.
The terms and conditions for sale of our Products will become binding on you and us when you are issued with an Order Confirmation email (“the Order Confirmation”) which is your confirmation that we are able to provide you with the Products, at which point a contract will come into existence between you and us.
We shall assign an order number to your order and inform you of it when we confirm the order. Please quote the order number in all subsequent correspondence with us relating to the order.
Many of our products and/or services are subject to a ‘Service Agreement’. This is a separate contract covering additional terms and conditions relevant to a particular service and/or project, as agreed to by us and the service recipient. Any service agreement will act in addition to these terms & conditions.
Where a service agreement is required, an agreement can be distributed electronically or by post. When distributed electronically, a digital signature may be used as a legally binding signatory method. A record of orders and contracts can be viewed from your GCPBS account.
RETURNING FOR REFUND
All items, excluding printed products and services covered by a service agreement, as sold on the GCPBS website (“the Products”) are subject to a seven day cooling off period.
You have a legal right to cancel an order during the seven working day period set out below. This means that, during the relevant period, if you change your mind or for any other reason you decide you do not want to keep a product, you can notify us of your decision to cancel the order and you are entitled to a full refund of the purchase price of included: unopened and unused products, services which have not been initiated, and tickets for events which are more than 14 days from start. We will process the refund due to you as soon as possible and, in any case, within 30 calendar days of the day on which you gave us notice of cancellation as described below.
This seven working day period begins from the date of the Dispatch Confirmation, or if the Products have already been delivered to you, starting from the day after the day you receive* the Products. To be eligible for a refund you MUST report your request to our Customer Service Team within the seven day period. You may wish to keep a copy of your cancellation notification for your own records.
Upon submitting an eligible request to return items, our Customer Service Team will provide you with instructions on how to proceed. If you are resident in the UK, you will be supplied with a printable free-post label to affix to your package. Unfortunately, we are unable to refund postage costs to UK residents who choose a return postage method other than the free-post returns label we supply. Residents outside of the UK will not qualify for free return postage.
Requests for a refund made after the seven day cooling off period (for the purchase price and delivery costs of any Products) may be denied.
*For tracked items, this will be the day that the tracking states “delivered” on the relevant postal carrier’s website.

- A warranty is voided if it has been modified or tampered with. Warranties will also be void if Products have not been used by you within their given usage instructions, and without due care by you.
Should you wish to return an item carrying a warranty (as outlined above) (“Warranty Items”) due to fault or defect, you must contact our Customer Service Team as soon as the fault is found.
