Terms and Conditions
Where we use the words ‘we’, ‘us’, our’, ‘company’ or ‘ourselves’, we are referring to the company trading as Simply Divine Things.
Where we use the words ‘you’, ‘your’, yours’, or ‘customer’, we are referring to the person who is browsing our site, whether intending to purchase or not.
All prices are displayed in pound sterling unless you have chosen to shop in another currency. The prices shown do not include postage and packaging costs. These will be calculated when you view your basket and select your delivery zone.
In order to purchase something, you will need to select “add to basket” displayed next to the item you want. You will then be required to complete the checkout process via “view basket”. You may choose to register your details with us for quicker shopping next time you visit us.
We will email you to say your order has been received after passing through the checkout, however it will not be accepted until payment has been received and cleared, and we have issued an Order Accepted email.
Should you have any difficulties while making a purchase, please contact us and we will be happy to help.
Where there is an event beyond our control such as a natural disaster or power cut, should this affect any order you have placed, we will endeavour to contact you as soon as possible.
Whilst we make every effort to ensure all prices are accurate, sometimes mistakes can happen, and we reserve the right to refuse a sale where an item has been priced incorrectly.
VAT is included in all prices at the current rate of 20% for all buyers within the EU. Should you require a VAT invoice or refund, please contact us within 30 days of your purchase.
Where you are purchasing an item that has colour, please be aware that computer monitors are all configured differently and therefore may look different to real life. While we make every effort to ensure a colour match, we cannot be held responsible for items not matching your expected colour. Where in doubt, please order a sample by contacting us at email@example.com.
Should there be any errors in item descriptions, prices or stock levels, at our discretion we will decide to refund your payment in full or contact you and ask if you wish to continue with your purchase under different terms, be that a different price, or a wait for new stock.
Where we use other company names or design names, these do not belong to use, and mean that we have used a particular company’s items in order to make our own items. The companies used have no connection to us whatsoever, and we do not sell their goods as our own.
Some of our ranges come with special usage instructions. Where this is the case, it will be stated in the product description. We will not be held responsible if these instructions have not been followed when using these items.
Our items are not for commercial resale.
Payment is to be made in pound sterling (GBP) and will not be accepted in any other currency. You may pay using your credit/debit card or bank account via Paypal, direct bank transfer, uncrossed/crossed postal order or by sending us a personal cheque, with your address and order number on the back, made payable to Simply Divine Things.
Orders will not be accepted until they have been paid for in full, and that payment has cleared fully. Personal cheques and crossed postal orders take up to 7 working days to clear, and e-cheques take up to 15 working days to clear, so please bear this in mind.
Gift or e-Vouchers
Gift vouchers are available in £1, £5, £10, £20 or £50 denominations. They have an expiry date of at least one calendar year after issue and this will be clearly marked on the voucher. The voucher will be issued in paper form, however we are also able to email to you. Each voucher can only be used once. If purchases cost more than the value of the voucher, payment for the difference can be made via our normal accepted methods. If the purchases are less than the value of the voucher, another e-voucher will be emailed to you for the remaining amount you have left to spend.
Vouchers are valid on all items for sale on our site, except gift vouchers, and can also be accepted as payment/part payment towards delivery costs.
It is the responsibility of the customer to treat the voucher as cash, and look after it as such. We reserve the right to refuse payment via a voucher if we believe there is any fraudulent or unlawful practise involved.

Wherever possible we will provide replacement goods, however in the event that we cannot, a full refund will be issued to the value you paid including postage and packaging costs.
Once you have received your purchase/s, you are legally the owner of the items and are such responsible for them.

Deductions from refund amounts will be made where items are returned that are not in their original condition. All refunds are issued in pound sterling. Where you have purchased goods as part of an offer i.e. Buy one get one free, or three for two, all items included in the offer must be returned, or those kept will be charged to you at full price. None of the above affects your statutory rights.
Security and Privacy
Any offer/discount can be withdrawn/removed/changed by us at any given time. Where an item is advertised as reduced in the sale, it has been available at the full price for at least 30 days either on www.simplydivinethings.co.uk or in our Ebay store.
Any discount e-voucher will be issued with an expiry date and whether you are entitled to a percentage discount or an amount in pound sterling. We will not accept these vouchers after the expiry date. These can only be redeemed once, and no cash alternative is available. Where items are returned for a refund, the amount refunded will be the same as you have paid, taking into account any discounts you have received. This does not affect your statutory rights.
Where you have qualified for a “recommend a friend” discount e-voucher, you will receive this 30 days after your recommended person has spent the minimum amount as specified on the e-voucher, and has not returned their purchase/s.
If you choose to return part of an order that has been purchased with a discount then the refund issued will be proportionate. If you have received a discount due to multiple items purchased and you do not return the whole order, the discount may be fully removed from your order and this will be reflected in your refund amount. If you have received a free gift/s with your order and choose to only return the paid for items, your refund amount will have the value of the gifts deducted.
