Our acceptance of your order will take place when we email you the order confirmation, at which point a contract will come into existence between you and us.
    • Input errors. Before you place your order, you will have the opportunity of identifying whether you have made any input errors by checking the final summary prior to payment. You may correct those input errors before placing your order by changing/removing them in/from your basket/cart.
    • If we cannot accept your order. If we are unable to accept your order, we will inform you of this in writing and will not charge you for the product. For example, this might be because the product is out of stock, because of unexpected limits on our resources which we could not reasonably plan for, because we have been unable to complete successfully our Multi-Pay approval process, or because we have identified an error in the price or description of the product.
    • Your order numbers. We will assign an order number to your order and tell you what it is when we accept your order. It will help us if you can tell us the order number whenever you contact us about your order.

    • Product packaging may vary. The packaging of the product may vary from that shown in images on our website.

     

    5. Our rights to make changes

    • If for any reason you have delayed placing your order following your review of our products on-line please bear in mind that we do reserve the right to make variations to our product specifications and you may wish to check again the specification and other details of the product (including the price we charge for the product and any related delivery charges) you are ordering.


    6. Providing the products

    • Delivery costs – Great Britain and Northern Ireland. We offer free standard delivery to all addresses in Great Britain and Northern Ireland.
    • How we deliver. All products ordered through our website for delivery in Great Britain and Northern Ireland are delivered by standard delivery.  Smaller items (such as accessories and spare parts) are generally delivered by post.  Larger items are generally delivered by a third-party courier service. We will notify you which delivery method we will use when we send the Order Confirmation.
    • Delivery times. Where the standard delivery service applies, we aim to get your purchase to you within one day. For these purposes, “working days” are Monday to Friday, excluding bank holidays as applicable in England, and “weekend days” are Saturday and Sunday.  If you place your order before 19.00 on a working day, or before 14:00 on a weekend day, this period runs from the close of business on that day.  If you place your order after 19.00 on a working day, or 14:00 on a weekend day, this period runs from the close of business on the next following day.  We do what we reasonably can to meet the delivery times set out in this section.  However, these cannot be guaranteed.
    • Tracking your order. If your order is being delivered by courier you can track your parcel by clicking on the link in the email that we send you to confirm dispatch.
    • Courier deliveries. All courier deliveries must be received in person at the delivery address, and a signature must be provided. Our courier delivery service providers may notify you by telephone or email in advance of attempting to make a delivery.
    • Additional courier delivery attempts and collection. If an initial delivery attempt by our courier is unsuccessful, our delivery service provider may make one further attempt to deliver your products.  If the second delivery attempt is unsuccessful, our delivery service providers will leave a card at your address, with instructions on how you may collect your product. Such instructions will include a time limit for collection.
    • Delivery problems. If you experience any problems with a delivery, please contact us by telephone on 0800 093 0875. If our delivery service provider is unable to deliver your products, and such failure is due to your or your nominated recipient of the products unavailability at the delivery address or delivery otherwise proves impossible in circumstances that could not reasonably be regarded as our responsibility (we set out examples below), and you or your nominee do not collect your products from our delivery service provider within the time specified on the card left at your address, then we may agree to arrange for re-delivery of the products, providing that we reserve the right to charge you for the actual costs of re-delivery (even where the initial delivery was free-of-charge). An indicative list of the situations where a failure to deliver will be your responsibility is set out below:
      • you provided the wrong address for delivery;
      • there is a mistake in the address for delivery that was provided;
      • the address for delivery is not reasonably accessible;
      • the address for delivery cannot safely be accessed; or
      • where in person receipt is required, there is no person available at the address for delivery to accept delivery and provide a signature.
    • If you do not re-arrange delivery. If you do not collect the products from us within the time limit specified on the card left at the delivery address, and you do not arrange redelivery of the products, we will contact you for further instructions and may charge you for storage costs. If, despite our reasonable efforts, we are unable to contact you or re-arrange delivery or collection we may end the contract with you.
    • When you become responsible for the goods. A product which is goods will be your responsibility from the time we deliver the product to the address you gave us or you or a carrier organised by you collect it from us.
    • When you own products, we sell to you; You own the products once we have received payment in full.
    • We are not responsible for delays outside our control. If our supply of the products is delayed by an event outside our control then we will contact you as soon as possible to let you know and we will take steps to minimise the effect of the delay. Provided we do this we will not be liable for delays caused by the event, but if there is a risk of substantial delay you may contact us to end the contract and receive a refund for any products you have paid for but not received.

     

    7. Price and payment

    • Where to find the price for the product. The price of the product (which includes VAT) will be the price indicated on the order pages when you placed your order. We take all reasonable care to ensure that the price of the product advised to you is correct. However please see clause 2 for what happens if we discover an error in the price of the product you order.
    • What happens if we got the price wrong. It is always possible that, despite our best efforts, some of the products we sell may be incorrectly priced. We will normally check prices before accepting your order so that, where the product’s correct price at your order date is less than our stated price at your order date, we will charge the lower amount. If the product’s correct price at your order date is higher than the price stated to you, we will contact you for your instructions before we accept your order. If we accept and process your order where a pricing error is obvious and unmistakeable and could reasonably have been recognised by you as a mispricing, we may end the contract, refund you any sums you have paid and if we so require, arrange for the return of any product to which this subclause applies at our expense but with your understanding of the situation and assistance in our being given the opportunity to collect the product
    • When you must pay and how you must pay. We accept payment with Mastercard, Visa and American Express. Unless we have agreed that you can make payment under our Multi-Pay arrangement, you must pay for the products in full before we dispatch them. We will not charge your credit or debit card until we dispatch the products to you.
    • Multi-Pay. You can request on the payment option page to make payment under our Multi-Pay arrangement. The terms of the Multi-Pay arrangement require between 2 and 12 monthly instalment payments (depending upon the products you are purchasing and the detail of our Multi-Pay offer for the Products). Access to the Multi-Pay arrangement is subject to acceptance by us. Where you have requested Multi-Pay, your order will be subject to a validation procedure (which we will complete as promptly as possible). The Multi-Pay option may not be available to you if you have placed and we have accepted multiple product orders for delivery to the same address or through the use of an identical payment card. Multi-Pay is not available if payment is made with a prepaid card.
    • We can charge interest if you pay late. If you do not make any payment to us by the due date we may charge interest to you on the overdue amount at the rate of 2% a year above the base lending rate of HSBC from time to time. This interest shall accrue on a daily basis from the due date until the date of actual payment of the overdue amount and any interest due. Under Multi-Pay arrangements interest will be calculated by reference to the instalment due date and shall also be applied following any cancellation of the Multi-Pay arrangement interest falling due from the date by which you are required under Clause 6 to make payment of the outstanding balance due whether before or after judgment.
    • We are also entitled to cancel the instalment payment arrangement if you do not make payment of an instalment on time. With your order confirmation you will be provided with confirmation that we agree to accept payment under the Multi-Pay facility. Should any payment of an instalment not be paid by the due date advised to you in that confirmation for that instalment we shall be entitled to notify you (we will do this in writing) that the Multi-Pay arrangement is cancelled. You will in such circumstances be required to make payment in full of the outstanding balance of the purchase price within 28 days of the date we make you aware of cancellation.
    • Credit and debit card chargebacks. Credit and debit card providers may allow you to reverse a transaction on your card under a process referred to as “chargeback”. There are specified grounds upon which chargeback may be available, such as goods that are supplied to you not being as described or being defective, or non-delivery of goods. If you submit a claim for a chargeback which is not justified in the circumstances, then without prejudice to our other rights, you will be liable to pay us, within 28 days following the date of the chargeback, for the following amounts: (i) where products to which the chargeback relates have been delivered to you, an amount equal to any sum  repaid by our bank as a  result of the chargeback claim; (ii) the amount of any charges made to us by our, or your, bank or payment processor or card issuer in connection with the unjustified chargeback; (iii) all our other reasonable costs, losses and expenses incurred in connection with the unjustified chargeback.
    • Termination. Without prejudice to our other rights, if you submit an unjustified credit card, debit card or other chargeback, then we may end the contract between us for the supply of the products in question, together with any other contract between us for the supply of other goods or services.

     

    8. Your right to cancel

    • Our goodwill guarantees. Please note, this clause 8, together with clause 10 reflect the goodwill guarantee offered by Euro-Pro Europe Limited whose registered office is at 3150 Century Way, Leeds, LS15 8ZB to our Great Britain and Northern Ireland customers.  We are under a legal duty to supply products that are in conformity with this contract.  This goodwill guarantee does not affect your legal rights in relation to faulty or misdescribed products.  Our goodwill guarantee is in additional to these legal rights.  Advice about your legal rights is available from your local Citizen’s Advice Bureau.
    • Consumer Contract Regulations 2013. Please note that under the Consumer Contracts Regulations 2013, for most products bought online you have a legal right to change your mind and cancel the contract within 14 days and receive a refund.
    • Right to cancel. The provisions of this clause 8 are more generous than your legal rights under the Consumer Contract Regulations 2013. Under these terms, we agree to extend the period within which you can cancel the contract so that you have 30 days after the day you (or someone you nominate) receives the product(s) to cancel the contract, unless your products are split into several deliveries over different days, in which case you have until 30 days after the day you (or someone you nominate) receives the last delivery to cancel the contract.
    • How to tell us that you want to cancel. In order to cancel a contract under this clause 8, you must inform us of your decision to cancel your contract by clear statement. You can do this by one of the following ways:
      • Phone. Call customer services on 0800 093 0875.
      • By post. Print off the form [https://sharkclean.eu/uk/customer-care/contact-us and post it to us at the address on the form.  Or simply write to us at that address, including details of what you bought, when you ordered it or received it and your name and address.
    • Return of products. If you cancel a contract under this clause 8, you must return the products to us within 14 days of cancellation. The Consumer Contracts Regulations 2013 provide that you should pay the costs of returning the goods to us. However, we make available a free return arrangement. You will be advised at the time of cancellation as to how to take advantage of this – it involves taking the product safely and securely packaged to a nominated collection point.
    • Collection of products. Instead of the free return arrangement, when you cancel the contract under this clause 8, you may elect instead to have the product collected from the original delivery address, at a charge of £15 inc VAT. Please have a debit or credit card available when you contact us if you wish to take advantage of this option.
    • Sending products back to us. If you cancel under this clause 8 and do not want to use the free return arrangement or the collection service referred to above, then you should return them at your own expense to the following address: Customer Services, 3150 Century Way, Leeds, LS15 8ZB
    • How a refund is made. If you cancel a contract under this clause 8, we will refund you by the method you used for payment.

  • Recycling your old electricals is easy! Recycle your electrical and electronic devices free at your local recycling centre. To find your nearest centre, visit the Recycle More website and type in your postcode.

    1. Why recycle?

    • Unwanted electrical equipment is the UK’s fastest growing type of waste.
    • Many electrical items can be repaired or recycled, saving natural resources and the environment.
    • If you do not recycle electrical equipment will end up in landfill where hazardous substances will leak out and cause soil and water contamination – harming wildlife and also human health.
    • We’re proud to support your local authority in providing local recycling facilities for electrical equipment.
    • To remind you that old electrical equipment can be recycled, it is now marked with the crossed-out wheeled bin symbol.
    • Please do not throw any electrical equipment (including those marked with this symbol) in your bin.

     

    2. What is WEEE?

    • The Waste Electrical or Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Directive requires countries to maximise separate collection and environmentally friendly processing of these items.

     

    3. How are we helping?

    • In the UK, distributors including retailers must provide a system which allows all customers buying new electrical equipment the opportunity to recycle their old items free of charge.
    • As a responsible retailer, we have met the requirements placed on us by financially supporting the national network of WEEE recycling centres established by local authorities.

    Our approach to slavery and human trafficking

    We are committed to ensuring that there is no modern slavery or human trafficking in our supply chains or in any part of our business.

    Shared core values are at the heart of the SharkNinja business: they define who we are, how we work, what we believe in, and what we stand for. We understand the fundamental importance of ethical trading and are committed to earning the respect of our personnel, customers and suppliers worldwide. This statement is made by SharkNinja to affirm our commitment to upholding basic human rights and prohibiting forced or involuntary labour in the production of SharkNinja products. All SharkNinja personnel are expected to comply with our approach. We expect our business operations, our people and every company that we work with to conduct business ethically and legally throughout our organisation.

     

    Our supply chains

    SharkNinja sources critical components from China, where our products are manufactured. We seek to only deal with reputable suppliers who share our zero-tolerance policy in respect of human rights including welfare, trafficking and slavery.

    We conduct routine internal social compliance audits with our first-tier suppliers. These audits include assessing employee labour; workers’ pay, working hours, benefits and rights, in addition to environmental and workplace safety. During these audits, we speak with randomly selected employees to assess their voluntary employment, their employment freedom and ensure they hold identification documentation, along with other legal requirements. Our audits are conducted in alignment with SA8000 standards, the leading standard for factories and organisations across the globe.

    We also require our first-tier suppliers to conduct their own audits of their suppliers. We oversee these audits and we review their audit reports.

     

    Supplier adherence to our values

    We have zero tolerance of slavery and human trafficking. To ensure all contractors and those in our supply chain comply with our values, we require all suppliers to read and acknowledge our policies. We seek to include anti-slavery provisions in our standard supplier terms and conditions around the world. Within our supply chains, we seek annual compliance certifications from counterparties, and educate our personnel on how to identify and deal with any potential modern slavery issues.

     

    Training

    To ensure a high level of understanding of the risks of modern slavery and human trafficking in our supply chains and our business, we provide training to our staff. From an employee’s first days on the job, our on-boarding process emphasises business ethics. We expect our people to apply these standards in their day-to­day business and report any issues creating concern on a confidential or anonymous basis at any time. These are underpinned by our Anti-Bribery and Corruption Policy, alongside our Whistleblowing Policy.

     

    Continuous Improvement

    As SharkNinja continues to grow, we are committed to ensuring our integrity is not compromised. During the next financial year we are increasing our focus on regulatory and social compliance and investing in additional resource and platforms to support our global operations in these areas.

     

    This statement is made pursuant to section 54(1) of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 and constitutes our slavery and human trafficking statement for the financial year ending 31 December 2018.
