Terms and conditions

Welcome to the La Muse website (the "Website"). Please review the following terms of use (the "User Terms") that govern your use of our website. Please note that your use of the website constitutes your agreement to follow and be bound by the user terms.

General

By using the Website you confirm that you are at least 18 years old, or, if you are under 18, that you are accessing the Website with the consent of your parent of guardian.

In the case of registered users, we reserve the right to terminate access in the event of unauthorised access or use of an account, or breach (in our opinion) of the User Terms.

 

Price and Delivery

The price you will pay for the goods is the price in the e-mail confirmation. E&OE

You shall be given an estimated time for delivery at the time your order is placed. If the goods are not available for delivery with 30 days of being ordered you shall be entitled to cancel your order and receive a full refund of any monies paid. Where goods become available for delivery at different times we reserve the right to deliver them in stages.

Once the goods have been delivered to you, you will hold them at your own risk and will be liable for their loss or destruction. We will not be liable for the loss or destruction of the goods once they have been delivered to you.

If you place your order online we'll send you an e-mail to let you know when we've dispatched your order. Your order should arrive within not more than 28 working days of dispatch. This maximum delivery period shall have elapsed before we will consider claims for lost in transit consignments.

 

Returns policy

If you decide you do not require the goods, you may return the goods to us within ten days from the date on which you received them provided they are returned in their original packaging and in perfect condition. We shall refund the purchase price of the goods within 30 days of the order being cancelled. Goods supplied direct from a manufacturer will be subject to the returns conditions of that manufacturer. If any goods are returned damaged we reserve the right to levy a charge commensurate with our costs of processing the sale. Goods must be returned using a signed delivery service - like Royal Mail Recorded or Special Delivery.
