27.              Purchasing from Terry Freedman Ltd

27.1          When you place an order to purchase a product directly from Terry Freedman Ltd, we will send you an e-mail confirming receipt of your order and containing the details of your order. Your order represents an offer to us to purchase a product which is accepted by us when we send e-mail confirmation to you that we've dispatched that product to you, or which contains the information you require in order to access the product or service you have purchased.

27.2At the moment, we do not sell anything from the website directly from ourselves; our online payments are handled by 3rd parties, such as PayPal, e-Junkie, Lulu or SWREG. You will therefore be taken to the 3rd party’s website in order to complete the transaction. Please see the appropriate website for details of the steps required to conclude the transaction, and how it treats your data. Please note that when purchases are made, except in the case of Lulu, we receive the purchaser's details via email, to which access is password-protected.

27.3          It should be noted that some services, such as SWREG gives all prices in US dollars, and that the exchange rate used by SWREG may not always be exactly the same as the current one. Similarly, because the exchange rate fluctuates, the actual exchange rate may sometimes differ from the one used on our website. For these reasons, the British pound price quoted for a product may be different from the one actually charged by SWREG, and the US dollar price quoted may be different from the one actually charged by PayPal. In all transactions, you will be able to see the actual price before you pay, and will be able to abort the process if you do not wish to purchase at that time.

27.4          We handle offline payments ourselves, if you send us your purchase order and payment direct.

27.5          Postage and packing rates are published on the relevant website as required, so you will be able to know these in advance of placing your order. If you place an order online for a physical product, the delivery charges should be itemised in the purchase order generated.

Delivery times

27.6          Delivery of digital goods and subscriptions is usually instant on completion of the payment process.
