1.2     All goods and services sold on our website are intended for those working in the hairdressing or beauty trade.  However, we recognise that private individuals may also want to enjoy our products and nothing in these terms and conditions is intended, or will have the effect, of limiting your legal rights as a consumer where you are purchasing from us as a consumer (i.e. for purposes that are wholly or mainly outside your trade, business, craft or profession). In these terms, the customer (whether a business customer or a consumer) is also referred to as “you” and “your”.


2.   Scissor Warehouse Contract

2.1     In these terms reference to the “order” is a reference to your order for the goods and/or services set out in your online submission or telephone request.

2.2     Please note that there will be no legal contract between us for the provision of our goods and/or services until we formally accept your order. On acceptance of your order, there will be a legally binding contract between us for the sale of the goods and/or supply of services set out in the order. Any such contract will incorporate the chosen contract payment plan and will be subject to these terms. 

2.3     Our acknowledgement of receipt of your order or acceptance of any deposit or pre-payment from you does not itself constitute an acceptance of your order; we will confirm acceptance separately and any deposit or other pre-payment received from you will be refunded in full within 3 working days if we do not accept your order for any reason. 

2.4     Please check these terms and the information set out in your order carefully before submitting your order to ensure that they are complete and accurate.  We cannot be liable for any inaccuracies in your order or to agree to any changes in your order requested after you have submitted it, but this is without prejudice to your right to cancel the order as set out in these terms and under applicable any relevant consumer laws.


3.  Your Right to Cancel and returns

3.1     Please note that where you are purchasing from us as a consumer nothing in these terms is intended to exclude or limit your statutory rights of cancellation rights including under the Consumer Contracts (Information, Cancellation and Additional Charges) Regulations 2013.  We have designed our cancellation policy to mirror those rights, whether you are purchasing from us as a consumer or not.

3.2     If you wish to cancel you order, you must give us written notice of cancellation within 14 days of the day you receive the last of the first instalment of your goods from us or, where we are providing a service to you, within 14 days from entering into the contract with us (i.e. the date we accept your order).  We will accept email notification to the address set out above.

3.3     If you do cancel your order in accordance with these provisions, you will have an additional 14 days within which to return the goods to us.  You will be responsible for the costs of the return of the goods to us but we will refund the cost of the original delivery charge.  Until the goods are returned to us, you must take reasonable care of them to keep them in good condition.  All goods must be returned to us unused and in their original packaging.    

3.4     Please note that you are not entitled to cancel the order once you or anyone authorised by you has used any goods comprised in the order or where any of the goods have been manufactured trimmed or otherwise worked on by us to meet your particular specifications.

3.5     If you have explicitly agreed that any services that you have ordered from us (including modification or installation of goods or other bespoke work to be supplied by us) may commence before the end of the 14 days cancellation period and you subsequently cancel the order in accordance with your 14 days cancellation rights. you will still be required to pay our reasonable charges for the services provided before we receive notice of your cancellation.

3.6     The above provisions do not affect your right to cancel and return goods to us at our cost if the goods are received by you in a damaged or faulty or not satisfactory condition or are otherwise not in conformity with the terms of the contract (e.g. the wrong item or wrong quantity or missing items).  If this applies, please notify us of the damage or defect or nature of unsatisfactory goods or other breach and we will arrange collection of the affected goods at our expense. 

3.7     Where we determine that the goods were damaged, defective or not of satisfactory quality or otherwise not in conformity with the contract, we will arrange a full refund (including any original delivery charges) or, if you agree to this, the provision of replacement goods of at least the same quality and value of your original order.  Any refund will usually be made within [14] days of determination.


4.  Contract Payment Plan and Ownership of Goods

4.1     The Contract Payment Plan referred to in your order forms part of the Scissor Warehouse Contract and sets out the payment schedule for amounts payable and dates that the payments are due from you. Unless otherwise expressly stated, all payments are inclusive of VAT.

4.2     Unless otherwise expressly agreed with you, the normal term for our Contract Payment Plans is 12 months with payments being due by way of 12 equal monthly instalments starting from the date your order is accepted by us.  Please note that this is an exempt credit agreement and not regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority.

4.3     Before placing your order please ensure that you can afford the payments under the Contract Payment Plan and that your chosen payment method will be valid for the whole of the payment period.  It is your responsibility to ensure that all payments are made in accordance with The Contract Payment Plan schedule and we will be unable to extend credit beyond 12 months.

4.4     Unless expressly agreed between us, all payments due under the Contract Payment Plan will be processed to the card or other payment method used to place your initial order and by placing your order you authorise us to take payments using that payment method for the whole of the Contract Payment Plan scheduled and any overdue payments under it. You must notify us immediately if your chosen payment method ceases to be valid for any reason.

4.5     You may settle the balance due under your Contract Payment Plan early and continue to enjoy the full benefit of your chosen Contract Plan for its full term.

4.6     Ownership of Scissor Warehouse scissors, and any other items or products included in your accepted order will pass to you only on the date of their full and final payment in cleared funds under the Contract Payment Plan.  Ownership of the products will remain with us until that time notwithstanding delivery to you.  On cancellation of your contract for any reason other than our fault, including cancellation for your non-payment, all goods owned by us must be returned to us at your expense. 


5.   Failure to Make Payments in accordance with The Contract Payment Plan

5.1     Failure to make payments on time or for the correct amount will lead to the payments being in arrears and you being in breach of contract. Where a recurring debit or credit card payment arrangement has been agreed with you but any payment request is declined by the card issuer, we are entitled to submit further requests for payment to your debit or credit card issuer until the payment has been satisfied.  We will normally make up to three further attempts at intervals of two days to recover payment in this manner. 

5.2     If your preferred payment method becomes invalid during the contract period, or if the charge is refused for any other reason outside of our control, you authorise us to use any other payment method that you have provided to us in respect of the contract in order to recover the outstanding payment.

5.3     If such further requests for payment or alternative payment methods remain unsuccessful we will try to contact you to resolve the situation.  If we are unable to get an immediate response from you at this stage or we are unable to immediately resolve the situation to our satisfaction, we may pass your details onto a third party debt collecting agency acting on our behalf.

5.4     Without limiting any other rights that we may have in respect of your default in payment, if you fail to make any payment by its due date for payment, we may:

          (a) charge a fee of £20 for each default in payment in respect of its additional administrative costs in dealing with your default and/or
