These Terms and Conditions apply to all purchases form our website.
Please read them carefully before placing an order.
1. Acceptance of your order:
We must receive payment of the price of the products, the gift-wrapping service (if applicable) and the delivery charges before we can accept your order. We reserve the right to restrict the number of products you may order and to refuse any order. If you have provided us with your email address you will receive an email from us confirming that we have received your order. This email is sent automatically and does not mean that we have accepted your order. We will notify acceptance of your order by sending an email to you stating that your order has been accepted and despatched. Otherwise, our acceptance of your order takes place upon delivery of the products. Only when we have accepted your order is a binding contract created between us.
Our prices are set out on our website in Pounds Sterling and are inclusive of United Kingdom-rated VAT where applicable. You are responsible for the disclosure and payment of any import duties or other taxes which apply in the country to which the products are delivered. Prices remain in force until we publish new prices on our website. Delivery charges may apply and are displayed during the order process.
There is also the option to view our prices in Euros. All orders will be charged in Pounds Stirling as shown on your order confirmation. We can not be held responsible for any differences to the exchange rate between the time of purchase and the time the payment is completed.
Whilst we try to ensure that all prices on our website are accurate, mistakes can sometimes occur. If we discover an error in the price of products you have ordered we will contact you as soon as possible and give you the option of either reconfirming your order at the correct price or cancelling it. If we are unable to contact you we will treat the order as being cancelled. If the order is cancelled, we will refund any money, which we have taken from you.
We reserve the right to change our prices.
All orders are subject to availability of products. If products you order are not available we will notify you (where possible) and, if we have received the price and the delivery charges of the unavailable products, we will refund them to you within 30 days of your order unless you agree to a longer period.
Our aim is to get your order delivered within 10-14 working days of receipt of payment to addresses within the United Kingdom and within 21 working days of receipt of payment to all other addresses (Please allow up to 28 days for delivery). All products require a signature when delivered. If products are returned to us as undeliverable we shall attempt to contact you to arrange re-delivery. This will incur an additional postage charge. If we are unable to contact you we will refund the price of the products only. The original postage charge cannot be refunded due to administrative costs. Once the products are delivered they will become your risk and we will not be liable for any subsequent damage, loss or destruction to them.
Please note that missing parcels to UK addresses cannot have a claim started until 15 working days after date of dispatch. For overseas orders, a claim cannot be started until 25 working days have passed since the date of dispatch.
Whilst we sympathise, we are unfortunately unable to offer any refund on missing parcels until Royal mail have deemed the parcel to be lost. This can take up to 28 days from the date of claim.
5. Right of Cancellation:
The United Kingdom's Distance Selling Regulations 2000 provide you with a right to cancel your order for products at any time up to the end of the seventh working day following the day after the day on which you received the products. You do not need to give us any reason for cancellation. Corporate Clients please read condition 8.
For reasons of hygiene and public health you may not cancel your order for products marked with an asterisk (*) on your order form if we have already despatched those products to you.
If you wish to cancel your order please write to us with details of your cancellation. If you have already received the products you must carefully repackage and return them to us. For products to be returned from within the United Kingdom, they must be addressed to Sportsworld (NE) Ltd -37 Market Street -Alnwick,Northumberland- UK, NE66 1SS
Until you have returned the products to us, you must keep them in your possession and take reasonable care of them. We will credit the price of the cancelled products. Please note that any carriage charges already incurred by Sportsworld at the point on cancellation will not be credited.
6. Returns Policy:
In addition to the right of cancellation in condition 5 above, we operate a Returns Policy. If for any reason you are not satisfied with any products bought from this website you may return them to us within 28 days of purchase for a refund or exchange. All items must be returned 'as sold': in resalable condition, unworn, in original packaging with all swing tickets attached. If a returned item fails to meet one of these requirements we cannot accept the item back. On the back of the invoice / dispatch note is a returns form and label which both explains the returns process and requires you to complete the appropriate section so we know what action to take.
When returning items for exchange, an additional postage charge will be required to re-send the exchanged item. When returning an item for a refund we are unable to reimburse the return postage charge.
To return a product under this Returns Policy please send the item to:
Sportsworld (NE) Ltd
37 Market Street
UK, NE66 1SS
You must provide us with the original invoice, despatch note or other proof of purchase.
Faulty / Defective Goods:
If the manufactures recommended cleaning instructions are followed and the product has been used for its intended purpose, generally almost all faults will appear within the first 3 months after purchase. For this reason you may return any faulty item up to 3 months after the date of purchase. This product would then be professionally inspected for any faults of manufacture and a judgement made. If the damage to the product is deemed accidental damage/wear and tear, the product will be returned to the customer. If the inspection reveals any fault of manufacture then the product will be exchanged for new replacement product or fully refunded. If a product is deemed faulty, we will re-emburse you with reasonable costs of your return shipping charge if you include a receipt.
Under extreme circumstances, providing the product does not show excessive wear or neglect, a product may still be defective after 3 months of purchase. You may therefore return the item for an assessment by one of our specialists. These products may take longer to evaluate as often the manufactures approval or intervention is needed. Unfortunately, after this period of time, any products that are sent back to us for an inspection are done so at the customers own risk. We can not guarantee to be able to offer any refund or replacement on products returned to us after this period of time.
We evaluate each returned faulty product professionally and as quickly as possible with an aim to keep every customer satisfied with the highest level of customer service possible.
Please note: all faulty goods must be clean, dry and free from dirt and mud; we will not process any return we deem to be too dirty or wet.
Corporate clients may request samples from our product range. Samples are normally charged for, plus carriage and are Non-Returnable.
8. Product Liability:
No liability will be accepted for products where they have been engraved by a third party.
9. Complaints and Liability:
All complaints should be addressed to:
Sportsworld (NE) Ltd
37 Market Street
UK, NE66 1SS
If products we deliver to you are not as ordered or are damaged, defective or of incorrect quantity you should contact us within 7 days of delivery. We will replace the incorrect, damaged or defective products or make good the shortfall in quantity or, at our option, credit the price and delivery charges of those products to you.
If you do not receive products ordered you should notify us within 28 days of the date of your order. We will deliver the products ordered or, at our option, credit the price and delivery charges of the non-delivered products to you, or if we have not accepted your order and have been unable to contact you, we will notify you of the reason for non-acceptance.
Nothing in these Terms and Conditions shall be construed to exclude or limit any rights you may have as a consumer to the extent that such liability and rights may not be excluded or limited under applicable statute or law.
If any of these Terms and Conditions are unenforceable it shall not affect the enforceability of the rest of these Terms and Conditions.

COOKIES AND EU LAW - WE ARE COMPLIANT
What is a cookie ?
Put simply, a cookie is a piece of information in the form of a very small text file that is placed on your hard drive when browsing the internet. This is generated by a web server, which is basically the computer that operates a web site. The information the cookie contains is set by Sportsworld Rugby and can be used as notification for whenever anyone visits our site. A cookie can be thought of as an internet user's identification card, which is a friendly reminder to inform us when a customer has returned to our site.
What is the purpose of a cookie?
Are cookies dangerous?
No, they are quite simply small pieces of text which are not computer programs and cannot be executed as code. More importantly they are unable to be used to disseminate viruses, and browsers allow users to set their own limitations to the number of cookies saved on their hard drives.
Can cookies threaten users' privacy?
Cookies are stored on the computer's hard drive but they cannot access the hard drive - therefore a cookie cannot read other information saved on the hard drive, or gain access to a user's contact details. They only contain and transfer to the server as much information as the users themselves have disclosed to a certain web site. A server cannot set a cookie for a domain that it is not a member of. In spite of this, users quite often find in their computer files cookies from websites that they have never visited. One of the biggest concerns and fears of people is regarding information passed on to third parties without consent.
