Orders for products, services or both through the Online Store
By placing an Order via the Online Store you are making an offer and commitment to purchase products, services or both in accordance with these Terms. An Order is subject to acceptance or rejection by 4Seasons Gaming in its discretion after receipt of the Order. Provided you have not accepted delivery of the products, where possible, 4Seasons Gaming may in its discretion permit an Order to be cancelled, but cancellations cannot be guaranteed once any applicable payment is received for the Order. The Order cannot be cancelled by you once you accept delivery of the products.
Once you have placed an Order in accordance with these Terms you will receive an email confirming the details of your Order and receipt of payment (where applicable) (Confirmation Email). Where your Order is not accepted by us, your Account will be updated indicating that your Order has not been accepted. If you do not receive a Confirmation Email, please login to your Account to check the status of your Order.
Notwithstanding anything to the contrary, we may at any time following receipt of your Order accept, decline, or limit your Order for any reason whatsoever, whether or not your credit card has been charged or we have otherwise received payment from you. We will issue you with a refund if your credit card has been charged or we have received payment from you, and your Order is cancelled by us.
Changes to products, services and pricing
We may modify prices and product and service offerings at our discretion for any reason (including but not limited to changes in market conditions, product discontinuation, and changes in availability, manufacturer changes, errors in advertising, and in other circumstances).
All updates and modifications to the Website including any changes to the Content, Online Store, and all product and service pricing and offerings will be subject to these Terms. Any information we provide in relation to the availability of products is a guide only and is subject to change without notice. We will not be liable for any lack of availability of products that you may order through the Website.
Returns and refunds of an Order
We do not normally provide a refund if you have simply changed your mind about an Order, so please choose carefully.
In order to obtain a refund, exchange or to repair a product purchased from 4Seasons Gaming, including those products which carry a manufacturer's warranty, you must have clear proof of purchase; typically, a receipt or invoice.
To return your product (including warranty returns for faulty products, or where you have been sent the wrong item), please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
and we shall provide an appropriate request form. We will review your request, and at our option, issue you a Return Authorisation number. If we issue you a Return Authorisation number, please clearly print it on the outside of the package when returning your product to us. You acknowledge that by issuing you with a Return Authorisation number, we are not representing that your warranty claim is valid or that you will be entitled to have your product repaired or replaced, or a refund provided in relation to that product.
In relation to returning faulty products, warranty periods are strictly enforced by manufacturers. It is therefore important that you immediately apply for a Return Authorisation number as soon as you become aware of the need to do so. When we receive your product, we will assess whether the product has a fault and can be accepted as a warranty claim. We may be required to consult with the manufacturer or their repair agent to determine the fault and resolution. If we have to send your product to the manufacturer or their repair agent, we will ask them to assess the product and provide their assessment within a reasonable timeframe. Where the assessment finds that there is no fault with the product, or that the product has been damaged due to use of the product by you for a purpose for which it is not intended, outside its recommended parameters or specifications, or circumstances otherwise beyond our control, we may require, at our option, that you compensate us for any fees incurred by us in relation to the assessment. Once your product assessment is completed, we will inform you whether your warranty claim is accepted and whether we will repair, replace or refund your product.
