Please read these terms and conditions carefully and make sure that you understand them, before ordering any Products from our site. You should understand that by ordering any of our Products, you agree to be bound by these terms and conditions.

You should print a copy of these terms and conditions for future reference.

By continuing to browse and use our site you are agreeing to accept and comply and be bound by our terms and conditions.

  1. Information about us

    1. We operate the website www.waltzingmousestamps.com. I am Claire Brennan. My  main trading address is 25 Greenburn Way, Lisburn, County Antrim, Northern Ireland, BT27 4LT. My VAT number is No. GB 103 9972 07.

  2. Your status

By placing an order through our site, you warrant that:

      1. you are legally capable of entering into binding contracts; and

      2. you are at least 18 years old.

  1. How the contract is formed between you and us

    1. After placing an order, you will receive an e-mail from us acknowledging that we have received your order. Please note that this does not mean that your order has been accepted. Your order constitutes an offer to us to buy a Product. All orders are subject to acceptance by us, and we will confirm such acceptance to you by sending you an e-mail that confirms that the Product has been dispatched (Dispatch Confirmation). The contract between us (Contract) will only be formed when we send you the Dispatch Confirmation.

3.2 The Contract will relate only to those Products whose dispatch we have confirmed in the Dispatch Confirmation. We will not be obliged to supply any other Products which may have been part of your order until the dispatch of such Products has been confirmed in a separate Dispatch Confirmation.

  1. Consumer rights

    1. If you are contracting as a consumer, you may cancel a Contract at any time within seven working days, beginning on the day after you received the Products. In this case, you will receive a full refund of the price paid for the Products in accordance with our refunds policy (set out in clause 8 below).

    2. To cancel a Contract, you must inform us in writing. You must also return the Products to us as soon as reasonably practicable, and at your own cost. You have a legal obligation to take reasonable care of the Products while they are in your possession. If you fail to comply with this obligation, we may have a right of action against you for compensation.

    3. You will not have any right to cancel a Contract for the supply of any of the following Products:

                       Digital Products

  1. Availability and delivery

Your order will be fulfilled as soon as possible and within 30 days of the date of the Dispatch Confirmation, unless there are exceptional circumstances. Backordered items may require extra time as these items are out of stock at time of ordering.

  1. Risk and title

    1. The Products will be your responsibility from the time of delivery.

    2. Ownership of the Products will only pass to you when we receive full payment of all sums due in respect of the Products, including delivery charges.

  2. Price and payment

    1. The price of the Products and our delivery charges will be as quoted on our site from time to time, except in cases of obvious error.

    2. Product prices include VAT if applicable. However, if the rate of VAT changes between the date of your order and the date of delivery, we will adjust the VAT you pay, unless you have already paid for the Products in full before the change in VAT takes effect.

    3. Product prices and delivery charges are liable to change at any time, but changes will not affect orders in respect of which we have already sent you a Dispatch Confirmation.

    4. Our site contains a large number of Products and it is always possible that, despite our best efforts, some of the Products listed on our site may be incorrectly priced. We will normally verify prices as part of our dispatch procedures so that, where a Product's correct price is less than our stated price, we will charge the lower amount when dispatching the Product to you. If a Product’s correct price is higher than the price stated on our site, we will normally, at our discretion, either contact you for instructions before dispatching the Product, or reject your order and notify you that we are rejecting it.

    5. If the pricing error is obvious and unmistakeable and could have reasonably recognised by you as an error, we do not have to provide the Products to you at the incorrect (lower) price.

    6. Payment for all Products must be made through PayPal, our payment gateway. It is possible to use Credit cards and debit cards in the PayPal gateway even if you don't have a PayPal account. Please see the PayPal site for information on which cards may be used at this time.

  3. Our refunds policy

    1. If you return a Product to us:

      1. because you have cancelled the Contract between us within the seven-day cooling-off period (see clause .1 above), we will process the refund due to you as soon as possible and, in any case, within 30 days of the day on which you gave us notice of cancellation. In this case, we will refund the price of the Product in full, and any applicable delivery charges. However, you will be responsible for the cost of returning the item to us.

      2. for any other reason (for instance, because you have notified us in accordance with clause 19 that you do not agree to a change in these terms and conditions or in any of our policies, or because you consider that the Product is defective), we will examine the returned Product and will notify you of your refund via e-mail within a reasonable period of time. We will usually process the refund due to you as soon as possible and, in any case, within 30 days of the day we confirmed to you via e-mail that you were entitled to a refund. We will refund the price of a defective Product in full, any applicable delivery charges and any reasonable costs you incur in returning the item to us.

    2. We will usually refund any money received from you using the same method originally used by you to pay for your purchase.

  1. Warranty

We warrant to you that any Product purchased from us through our site will, on delivery, conform in all material respects with its description, be of satisfactory quality, and be reasonably fit for all the purposes for which products of that kind are commonly supplied.

      3. loss of profits;

      4. loss of anticipated savings;

      5. loss of data; or

    1. Nothing in this agreement excludes or limits our liability for:

      1. death or personal injury caused by our negligence;

      2. fraud or fraudulent misrepresentation;

      4. defective products under the Consumer Protection Act 1987; or

      5. any other matter for which it would be illegal for us to exclude or attempt to exclude our liability.

  1. Import duty

    1. If you order Products from our site for delivery outside the UK, they may be subject to import duties and taxes which are levied when the delivery reaches the specified destination. You will be responsible for payment of any such import duties and taxes. Please note that we have no control over these charges and cannot predict their amount.

We may give notice to you at either the e-mail or postal address you provide to us when placing an order, or in any of the ways specified in clause 12 above. Notice will be deemed received and properly served immediately when posted on our website, 24 hours after an e-mail is sent, or three days after the date of posting of any letter. In proving the service of any notice, it will be sufficient to prove, in the case of a letter, that such letter was properly addressed, stamped and placed in the post and, in the case of an e-mail, that such e-mail was sent to the specified e-mail address of the addressee.

  1. Transfer of rights and obligations

    1. The contract between you and us is binding on you and us and on our respective successors and assignees.

We will use our reasonable endeavours to bring the Force Majeure Event to a close or to find a solution by which our obligations under the Contract may be performed despite the Force Majeure Event.

  1. Waiver

    1. If we fail, at any time during the term of a Contract, to insist upon strict performance of any of your obligations under the Contract or any of these terms and conditions, or if we fail to exercise any of the rights or remedies to which we are entitled under the Contract, this will not constitute a waiver of such rights or remedies and will not relieve you from compliance with such obligations.

    2. A waiver by us of any default will not constitute a waiver of any subsequent default.

    3. No waiver by us of any of these terms and conditions will be effective unless it is expressly stated to be a waiver and is communicated to you in writing in accordance with clause 13 above.

  2. Severability

If any court or competent authority decides that any of the provisions of these terms and Conditions or any provisions of a Contract are invalid, unlawful or unenforceable to any extent, the term will, to that extent only, be severed from the remaining terms, which will continue to be valid to the fullest extent permitted by law.
