For orders placed via the Site, DLUK accepts Paypal, and Credit or Debit Cards such as Mastercard, Visa, American Express, Delta and Visa Electron cards. When making your payment, it is imperative that you provide the information that DLUK specify is required, for example, cardholder's name as it is shown on the card and address exactly as it appears on the card statement. Your card will be debited when DLUK confirms that it has accepted your order. Ownership or title to the product shall not pass to you, the buyer, until DLUK has received payment in full.
Applicable Delivery charges for orders are based on pre-determined weight bands supplied by the courier companies contracted by DLUK and by Royal Mail Post Office. The charge covers packing, handling and delivery. Orders are usually responded to within 24 hours. For all products other than those ordered from the Frames Online UK - Bulk Supply range, orders will normally be despatched within two working days for courier and Royal Mail First Class delivery options, and three working days for Royal Mail Second Class/Airmail post. These targets may exceptionally be extended up to 7 working days, particularly applicable if a product requires manufacture to order.
Delivery method will depend on option(s) available and selected on website. Generally delivery for smaller items (up to around 2kg) within the United Kingdom will be by Royal Mail First Class post. Larger items to Mainland UK are normally delivered by courier service (1-3 working days); for UK Deliveries outside the Mainland (such as Northern Ireland, Scottish Islands, and Isle of Man) delivery will normally be Parcel Force which on average takes 3-5 working days.
Delivery outside the United Kingdom is usually by Royal Mail Airmail, which can take up to a week (or more in some cases depending on local conditions) for goods to arrive. Only small deliveries (up to 2kg) can normally be accepted for worldwide despatch without prior arrangement. Due to greatly increased risk of breakage during transit, high cost, and safety considerations it is DLUK's policy to avoid despatch of any product containing glass by Airmail, unless by prior arrangement. Overseas orders of A4 framed products will generally use Acrylic 'glass' rather than traditional fragile glass.
Products ordered from the Frames Online UK - Bulk Supply range will normally be despatched via pallet within 7 working days, but this may exceptionally be extended up to 14 working days. Please allow up to 14 days for delivery. Please note all orders with the sole exception of downloadable digital products will incur a delivery charge.
Most courier companies will try several attempts to deliver items, and DLUK will endeavour to contact customerson knowledge of a failed delivery attempt to liase a successful delivery. If it is necessary for the courier company to return goods to supplier, DLUK may charge additional delivery charges for the consignment to be despatched again.
If you would like your goods delivered to a different address to your home address, then please fill in the details in the appropriate area on the online check out form. Please note that we can only accept one address per order. You will still need to supply us with your own name and address.
Please note items may be dispatched in more than one package, and will not necessarily arrive at the same time. If you have not received your goods within a reasonable timeframe, please contact DLUK on +44 (0)1983 716160 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
3.5 Out of stocks
If any item you have chosen is unavailable, DLUK will contact you via phone or your email address and set out the options that are available to you.
3.6 Return of goods policy
We want you to be completely satisfied with your purchases, as do the producers who made them. Please let us know if you are not entirely satisfied with our products or our service, so that we can rectify the situation. We try to ensure that the products are the same as our original samples, although sometimes differences do occur. Items are described and photographed as accurately as possible, but please note that sizes, colours and designs may vary.
If the product is damaged in any way or has become broken in transit please call us on + 44 (0)1983 716160 or email: email@example.com. The company will seek an equitable solution to promptly resolve the situation, and will normally offer the customer a replacement, credit, or refund. Customers are advised not to sign delivery receipts as correct unless goods have been unpacked and examined, otherwise the delivery receipt should be annotated as 'unopened'. Where possible customers are advised to take digital photographs of damaged items, these may be requested to support insurance claims and improve future processes.
3.7 Cancellation Policy
Please note that you have a legal right to cancel your order within 7 days of the date of receipt of the goods (provided the goods are returned to us new and in an unused condition in the original packaging together with a copy of the delivery note).

By returning, packing securely and enclosing the delivery note and sending it back to: DLUK a refund will be provided within 30 days of the date of cancellation. The cost of delivery may not be refunded unless the goods are faulty and we cannot accept any responsibility for any loss or damage to goods in transit when being returned.

If you are not satisfied with your goods, you may return them in mint condition in the original packaging, together with a copy of the delivery note for a refund.

3.9 Services Only Order (i.e. Photography & Digital Filming)
These services will be subject to separate contract, that covers the exigencies of the service provided. It is highlighted that whilst every reasonable precaution is taken to ensure a successful service (i.e. by having readily available back-up equipment, use of multiple cameras, and dual SD back-up); the limit of liability in the unlikely event of failure to provide service is to the full retail amount paid cost of the service.
4.0 DLUK values customers and will do its utmost to ensure to customer service.

The company will not condone any abuse to its employees including management staff and directors. This includes any abuses connected with protected characteristics under the UK Equality Act of 2010; but also any physical attacks, verbal or written abuse where foul language or personal derogatory statements are involved. The company will fully support the employee (including Management/Directors) subjected to such abuse, whether from customers or other employees . Such behaviour will result in a permanent ban of the individual from all DLUK premises and withdrawal of any future business facility. In the case of an employee, disciplinary action will be taken following investigation procedures, and will likely to result in instant dismissal for gross misconduct. Additionally, in all cases if a criminal act has been committed, the police will be informed.
