These Terms apply only to use of this Site by, and orders from, customer in the United States of America.  Orders from persons in other countries are subject to the terms at  http://www.talkingtables.co.uk/terms-and-conditions.

These Terms discusses important limitations about the way you may use and rely upon materials you find on the Site.  Read these Terms carefully.  By using the Site, you will be deemed to have accepted these Terms.  If you do not accept these Terms or if your right to use the Site has been terminated (see below), you may not use the Site.

YOUR ACCOUNT AND PASSWORD

If you choose, or you are provided with, a user identification code, password or any other piece of information as part of our security procedures, you must treat such information as confidential. You must not disclose it to any third party.  We have the right to disable any user identification code or password, whether chosen by you or allocated by us, at any time, if in our reasonable opinion you have failed to comply with any of the provisions of these terms of use.  If you know or suspect that anyone other than you knows your user identification code or password, you must promptly notify us.

ORDERS AND PRICING

Our shopping pages will guide you through the steps you need to take to place an order with us (an “Order”). Our order process allows you to check and amend any errors before submitting your Order to us. Please take the time to read and check your Order at each page of the order process.

The total price required for a purchase on the Site depends on a number of factors that may change between the time you start adding items to your cart and the time you submit your Order. Items on the Site have a price associated with each item. In addition, your total purchase price may be affected by factors such as your shipping address. You must review your complete Order, including the final total purchase price and the final individual item prices, before you submit your Order.

Your submission of an Order is an offer by you to purchase the items selected at the prices indicated immediately prior to your submission of the request. This offer remains open until we email you to confirm that it has been accepted or that it has not been accepted (e.g., because an item has become unavailable).

After you place an Order, you will receive an e-mail from us acknowledging that we have received your Order. However, please note that this does not mean that your Order has been accepted. We will confirm our acceptance of your Order by sending you an e-mail that confirms that the Products have been shipped. 

If we are unable to supply you with a Product, for example because that Product is not in stock or no longer available or because we cannot meet your requested delivery date or because of an error in the price on our Site, we will inform you of this by e-mail and we will not process your Order. If you have already paid for the Products, we will refund you the full amount including any delivery costs charged as soon as possible.

Our Site contains a large number of Products. It is always possible that, despite our reasonable efforts, some of the Products on our Site may be incorrectly priced. If we discover an error in the price of the Products you have ordered we will contact you to inform you of this error and we will give you the option of continuing to purchase the Product at the correct price or cancelling your Order. We will not process your Order until we have your instructions. If we are unable to contact you using the contact details you provided during the order process, we will treat the Order as cancelled and notify you in writing. Please note that if the pricing error is obvious and could have reasonably been recognized by you as a mispricing, we do not have to provide the Products to you at the incorrect (lower) price.

We reserve the right to cancel any Orders containing pricing errors, with no further obligations to you, even after your receipt of the order confirmation mentioned above or a shipping confirmation. We may, at our discretion, either contact you for instructions or cancel your Order and notify you of the cancellation.

PAYMENT; TAXES

You can only pay for Products using a debit card or credit card. We accept all major cards (including American Express). Payment for the Products and all applicable delivery charges is in advance. We will not charge your debit card or credit card until we ship your Order.

Items sold on the Site may be subject to sales tax.  Prior to submitting your Order, you will see an estimate of the tax to be collected. The amount of tax actually charged on your Order will depend on various factors, including the items purchased and the shipment destination.
