Terms and Conditions
Terms and Conditions
1. All orders placed are subject to stock being available - if any item is out of stock, it will be sent as soon as possible. If there is likely to be a long delay, we will endeavour to contact you to advise of this. If the product description page for any of the items ordered states 'pre-order' in red letters (above the price) then no payment will be taken for the order. Payment will be taken immediately for all other orders. If an item becomes unavailable, we will contact you to advise of alternatives and give you the opportunity to cancel the original order. All orders from the web can be cancelled provided we have not already shipped the goods to you.
2. Order Acceptance - the receipt of our email order confirmation does not constitute the acceptance of an order, or confirmation of an offer to sell. Additional verification of information may be required prior to the acceptance of any order. An acknowledgement of your order will be sent to you via email when you place your order. Clove Technology reserves the right to decline the order for any reason.
3. Payment for the goods and delivery and applicable taxes can be made by any method shown on the website at the time you place your order. Payment shall be due before the delivery date. Credit account invoices shall be payable by the customer within 30 days of date of invoice.
4. Goods will be delivered to the delivery/shipping address given when you place your order unless you are contacted by Clove Technology. If you fail to take delivery we will try and contact you to re-arrange the delivery - we reserve the right to charge a further delivery charge if required. Every effort will be made to deliver your goods as soon as possible after your order has been accepted, however Clove Technology will not be liable for any loss or damage suffered by you through delays in delivery.
5. We will not accept claims for lost or undelivered packages until 28 working days have passed, from date of dispatch. Of a 7 day week, 5 of those 7 are classed as working days. After 28 working days, if the package has still not arrived we will ship a replacement package or offer a full refund, whichever is preferred by those who placed the order. Refunds will be processed within 30 days after the claim has been made. If we can provide proof of delivery of a package then a refund or replacement shipment will not take place.
6. Any claims for damage, faults and mis-shipped items must be made within 7 working days of receipt of goods.
7. (Only applicable to consumers under the distance selling regulations.) You will have the option to withdraw your order for goods before they are shipped and also within 7 working days of the goods being received. In order for you to do this we do require you to send notice in writing (by email, fax or letter) within 7 working days of receipt. We will provide you with a returns authorisation number and the goods can then be returned at your cost in unused condition and complete in original packaging. The only circumstances in which you cannot withdraw your order is where you have used, altered or damaged the goods which you have already received, or in the case of software unsealed or with damaged seals. You do require a valid returns authorisation number before goods are returned.
8. Our transactions are currently made in Sterling, so you may incur a commission or transaction charge from your card issuer. If you do purchase goods from overseas and then decide to return them to us and we agree upon inspection to refund for these, be aware that there could be a currency fluctuation on the refund you are given which is out of our control and cannot be recovered from ourselves.
9. The privacy and confidentiality of your personal information is important to us. Therefore it is our policy not to disclose or sell this information regarding your orders and products you purchase to any outside organisation. Clove Technology may use such information to communicate special promotions and offers to you by email or post, unless you notify us that you do not want to receive such communications.
10. EU residents pay the VAT inclusive price. Non EU/Exempt pays the exclusive price. Clove Technology is not liable for any customs duties that might be incurred when the goods are shipped. It might not be possible for us to deliver to certain locations.
11. All goods remain the property of Clove Technology until paid for in full. Risk passes to yourself on delivery.
12. Goods are not supplied on a trial basis. Where the purchaser does not want the goods they can only be returned at the prior agreement of Clove Technology and may be subject to a restocking fee of up to 25% or 20 pounds whichever is the greater. In accordance with the Consumer Protection (Distance Selling) regulations 2000, you will have up to 7 days to return the goods for any reason.
13. Prices are subject to change without notice - however, when an order has been placed we will always endeavour to honour that price. However in the rare circumstances where we have to increase the price we will advise you and offer you the opportunity to cancel the order. Every effort is made to ensure that the prices shown on our website are accurate at the time you place your order. If an error is found, we will inform you as soon as possible and offer you the option of reconfirming your order at the correct price, or cancelling your order.
14. Clove Technology is not liable for any customs duties that might be incurred when the goods are shipped. In some countries the import of some of our smartphones and devices may be restricted, or require an import licence from you, the buyer. It is up to you as the buyer to make yourself aware of any such restrictions. If the goods get refused import and are returned to us this may incur further charges that have to be met by you as the buyer.
15. Clove Technology's total liability in contract, tort (including nor breach of statutory duty), misrepresentation or otherwise arising in connection with the performance or contemplated performance of this agreement shall be limited to the price paid for the goods. If you are a business customer we shall not be liable to any indirect or consequential loss or damage (whether for loss of profit, loss of business, depletion of goodwill or otherwise), costs, expenses or other consequential costs.
16. These terms and conditions do not affect consumer statutory rights.
17. Errors and omissions excepted.
We will at certain times offer voucher codes that can be used on the website. These codes are entered at the checkout stage and will offer discounts or free offers. To use simply enter the voucher code at checkout. These voucher codes cannot be used in conjunction with any other offer. We reserve the right to remove these voucher codes at any time without any notification. If two voucher codes have been used incorrectly then we will use our discretion to use the best voucher for you the customer, provided it is still valid. If an invalid voucher code is used, the order will be processed in the normal way without the reduction the voucher would have given.
We often post information about new products on the website ahead of their launch in order to give customers the opportunity to pre-order the device. If we have stated in the description that an item is a pre-order then it means you can place an order to give you the opportunity to get one of the first devices when the product is released. The price shown can sometimes be an estimate and whilst we try to make this as accurate as we can, it may change up or down when the product is launched. Payment details are not taken when a pre-order is placed. When the launch date and price are confirmed we will email you, giving you the opportunity to either proceed with payment or cancel your pre-order.
UNLESS IT STATES ON THE PRODUCT PAGE IN RED LETTERS THAT THE ITEM IS A PRE-ORDER PRODUCT YOU WILL BE CHARGED FOR THE ITEM.
Clove Technology offer a custom case design and production service. This can be found at http://cases.clove.co.uk .
All cases are custom made to order with your design. Whilst every endeavour is made to dispatch orders as quickly as possible, due to the custom nature of the product delays may be incurred. These will always be kept at an absolute minimum.
During the creation process you will be asked to confirm/approve the design. We will not accept returns or refunds for claims where the product is the same as the approved design. Image positioning, colours and text are your responsibility to check before order. Only if there is a printing or dispatch error, will a return be accepted.
The service is managed by a 3rd party company that has been approved by Clove Technology. As such your details will be securely passed to them for order processing & dispatch.
Payments are currently accepted via PayPal only.
Due to the service of http://cases.clove.co.uk being managed by a 3rd party, any order with http://www.clove.co.uk must be placed and will be processed separately.
Any claims for damage, faults and mis-shipped items must be made within 7 working days of receipt of goods.
We will not accept claims for lost or undelivered packages until 28 working days have passed, from date of dispatch. Of a 7 day week, 5 of those 7 are classed as working days. After 28 working days, if the package has still not arrived we will ship a replacement package or offer a full refund, whichever is preferred by those who placed the order. Refunds will be processed within 30 days after the claim has been made. If we can provide proof of delivery of a package then a refund or replacement shipment will not take place.

D. All returns must be in stock condition in the original boxes in 'as new' condition with all documentation.
E. If a machine proves faulty within the first 28 days we will deal with it as quickly as possible to resolve the problem, provided the warranty card (if supplied) is still blank.

After 28 days, or if the warranty card has been completed, the machine will be returned directly to the repair centre.
F. You are responsible for ensuring the safe delivery of returned items and any cost incurred for this are the responsibility of the purchaser. We will not normally make any charge for these goods to be returned back to you if you are based within the UK, however if the product needs to be returned outside the UK then we will need to charge you the cost of carriage for this return at a reduced rate to normal delivery. We do also reserve the right to levy a handling charge in the event of the returned goods being "no-fault found".
G. Opened software will not normally be accepted for credit. Faulty disks will normally be replaced.
H. Devices that have been modified (i.e rooted/hacked) will not be accepted for return, refund or replacement.
The Waste Electrical or Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Directive requires countries to maximise separate collection and environmentally friendly processing of these items. In the UK, distributors (including retailers) must provide a system which allows all customers buying new electrical equipment the opportunity to recycle their old items free of charge. Those establishing their own take-back scheme must as a minimum offer all customers buying new electrical equipment free take back of their old electricals on a like-for-like basis. Unwanted electrical equipment is the UKs fastest growing type of waste.
Many electrical items can be repaired or recycled, saving natural resources and the environment. If you do not recycle, electrical equipment will end up in landfill where hazardous substances will leak out and cause soil and water contamination – harming wildlife and also human health. We are pleased to offer our customers the chance to recycle their old electrical items when purchasing a new item from us.
To remind you that old electrical equipment can be recycled, it is now marked with a crossed-out wheeled bin symbol. Please do not throw any electrical equipment (including those marked with the crossed out wheeled bin symbol) in your bin.
