Your commitment to Sea Watch when ordering goods

The majority of people who take out an adoption or membership with Sea Watch do so in order to support the work that the organisation is engaged in. A very small number of people have been known to order goods and then cancel their payment method. Whilst Sea Watch respects that occasionally, for reasons beyond their control, supporters are not able to honour their original commitment and contact the Charity in order to reschedule their support, some people may have no intention of honouring their commitment. Therefore, by agreeing to these terms and conditions, you are honouring to pay the amount specified on completion of the order form. For those who cancel their payment methods before completion of their committed support, Sea Watch reserves the right to insist on payment of a minimum £42.00 within any 12 month period to cover all production, mailing and staff costs attributable to dealing with the order and cancellation.

It is your responsibility to ensure that any account from which you are making payments to Sea Watch has sufficient funds to cover your support. Sea Watch will not be liable for any bank (or similar) charges incurred due to any failure to ensure adequate monies are maintained in your account.

Order Processing

You confirm that all the details provided are correct - Sea Watch cannot be held responsible for errors in information provided by the customer.

If your online order is accepted, we will send you an e-mail confirming acceptance of your order, and details regarding how you can cancel and by when. Please note it is your responsibility to ensure that you have ordered what you intended. If you receive more than one confirmation email, Sea Watch would urge you to check to ensure that you have not placed more orders than you originally intended. Sea Watch will not presume that repeat orders are a mistake, but will act on all orders received unless notified otherwise within the 2 days of receiving the order or until such time as the contract has begun.

Your right to Cancel

Pursuant to The Consumer Protection (Distance Selling) Regulations 2000 (hereafter referred to as the Regulation) regulation 13(1)(a) the contract to supply your adoption will begin as soon as payment has been received from yourself.

In the terms of the Regulation the adoption pack is considered to be goods personalised to the consumerís specifications.

This means that, with the exception of the conditions detailed under Refunds and Exchange, you will not have the right to cancel once the contract has begun.

Cancellation

Pursuant to the above paragraph and The Consumer Protection (Distance Selling) Regulations 2000 a notice of cancellation will be accepted if you:

(a) leave your notification at the address last known to you and addressed to the supplier or other person by name (in which case it is to be taken to have been given on the day on which it was left);

(b) send it by post to the address last known to yourself and addressed to the supplier or other person by name (in which case, it is to be taken to have been given on the day on which it was posted). Please post to the address below under Refunds and Exchange;

or

(c) send it by electronic mail, to the business electronic mail address last known to you (in which case it is to be taken to have been given on the day on which it is sent). Please email .

If payment has been taken when you choose to attempt to cancel then our refunds policy, as detailed below, applies.
