Terms and Conditions of Sale

1. Introduction

1.1     These terms and conditions shall govern the sale and purchase of products through our website. 

1.2     You will be asked to give your express agreement to these terms and conditions before you place an order on our website.

1.3     This document does not affect any statutory rights you may have as a consumer (such as rights under the Sale of Goods Act 1979 or the Consumer Contracts (Information, Cancellation and Additional Charges) Regulations 2013).

2. Interpretation

2.1     In these terms and conditions:

  • "we" means ‘SWYM’; and
  • "you" means our customer or prospective customer,
  • and "us", "our" and "your" should be construed accordingly.

3. Order process

3.1     The advertising of products on our website constitutes an "invitation to treat" rather than a contractual offer.

3.2     No contract will come into force between you and us unless and until we accept your order in accordance with the procedure set out in this Section 3.

3.3     To enter into a contract through our website to purchase products from us, the following steps must be taken:

  • you must add the products you wish to purchase to your shopping cart, and then proceed to the checkout;
  • if you are a new customer, you must then create an account with us and log in;
  • if you are an existing customer, you must enter your login details;
  • once you are logged in, you must select your preferred method of delivery (if appropriate) and confirm your order and your consent to the terms of this document;
  • you will be transferred to our payment service provider's website, and our payment service provider will handle your payment;
  • we will then send you an initial acknowledgement; and once we have checked whether we are able to meet your order, we will either send you an order confirmation (at which point your order will become a binding contract) or we will confirm by email that we are unable to meet your order.

3.4     You will have the opportunity to identify and correct input errors prior to making your order by editing item(s) in your shopping cart.

4. Products

4.1     The following types of products are or may be available on our website from time to time:

  • tickets for events such as camps or conferences.

4.2     We may periodically change the products available on our website, and we do not undertake to continue to supply any particular product or type of product.

5. Prices

5.1     Our prices are quoted on our website.

5.2     We will from time to time change the prices quoted on our website, but this will not affect contracts that have previously come into force.

5.3     It is possible that prices on the website may be incorrectly quoted; accordingly, we will verify prices as part of our sale procedures so that the correct price will be notified to you before the contract comes into force.

5.5     In addition to the price of the products, you will not have to pay a delivery charge unless one is clearly stated.

6. Payments

6.1     You must, during the checkout process, pay the prices of the products you order.

6.2     Payments may be made by debit or credit card or PayPal account.

6.3     If you fail to pay to us any amount due under these terms and conditions in accordance with the provisions of these terms and conditions, then we may withhold the products ordered and/or by written notice to you at any time cancel the contract of sale for the products.

6.4     If you make an unjustified credit card, debit card or other charge-back then you will be liable to pay us, within 7 days following the date of our written request:

(a)      an amount equal to the amount of the charge-back;

(b)      all third party expenses incurred by us in relation to the charge-back (including charges made by our or your bank or payment processor or card issuer);

(c)      an administration fee of £25.00; and

(d)      all our reasonable costs, losses and expenses incurred in recovering the amounts referred to in this Section 6.4 (including without limitation legal fees and debt collection fees),

          and for the avoidance of doubt, if you fail to recognise or fail to remember the source of an entry on your card statement or other financial statement, and make a charge-back as a result, this will constitute an unjustified charge-back for the purposes of this Section 6.4.

7. Deliveries

7.1     Our policies and procedures relating to the delivery of products are set out in this Section 7.

7.2     For non-physical products, such as entry fees to events, there will be no delivery charge as the booking confirmation will be automatically emailed to you and this will act as your proof of purchase.

7.3     Booking confirmation will be sent by email and this will normally happen within a few minutes of your confirmed payment. Should you not receive the email, it is possible it has been flagged as ‘spam’ and dealt with accordingly by your email system. If you have not received your booking confirmation within an hour of paying for the order, we request that you contact us by email for further advice.

8. Distance contracts: cancellation right

8.1     This Section 8 applies if and only if you offer to contract with us, or contract with us, as a consumer - that is, as an individual acting wholly or mainly outside your trade, business, craft or profession.

8.2     You may withdraw an offer to enter into a contract with us through our website or cancel a contract entered into with us through our website (without giving any reason for your withdrawal or cancellation) at any time within the period:

  • beginning upon the submission of your offer; and
  • ending at the end of 14 days after the day on which you receive confirmation of the payment, or 14 days before the event you have ordered and paid for, whichever is the sooner.

8.3     In order to withdraw an offer to contract or cancel a contract on the basis described in this Section 8, you must inform us of your decision to withdraw or cancel (as the case may be). You may inform us by means of any clear statement setting out the decision. In the case of cancellation, you may inform us using the cancellation form that we will make available to you. To meet the cancellation deadline, it is sufficient for you to send your communication concerning the exercise of the right to cancel before the cancellation period has expired.

8.4     If you cancel a contract on the basis described in this Section 8, your booking confirmation will become null and void.

8.5     If you cancel an order in accordance with this Section 8, you will receive a full refund of the amount you paid to us in respect of the order including the costs of delivery to you, except as otherwise provided in this Section 8.

8.7     We will refund money using the same method used to make the payment, unless you have expressly agreed otherwise. In any case, you will not incur any fees as a result of the refund.

8.8     We will process a refund due to you as a result of a cancellation on the basis described in this Section 8 within the period of 14 days after the day on which we acknowledge receipt of your cancellation.
