This is an important section of the site explaining the terms and conditions that you are agreeing to when you use and shop from www.optisavers-online.co.uk website.
Placing an order
When you place an order from Optisavers, you will receive an email confirming receipt of your order and all additional details. We recommend to print this out or save this email as proof of purchase. If there is a problem with your order Optisavers will email you via the address supplied by yourself. By placing an order on this website you acknowledge this mechanism of concluding agreements with Optisavers. This is a binding agreement therefore you should fully, accurately and truthfully complete the ordering system. Orders can only be accepted from residents in mainland U.K and Ireland.
The prices stated on the website include Tax. Any delivery charges will be displayed to you prior to completion of any order.
Optisavers may not be bound by its acceptance of your offer if there is an error in any advertisement or representation made by Optisavers associated with it, but not limited to, any pricing error on the website.
As your order is processed you will be informed via email or telephone if any of the products are out of stock or not available. If the item you order is out of stock we will back order for you. This means that as soon as the product is back in stock the order will be confirmed and despatched. We will always email you with the option to cancel your order if you would rather not wait.
Optisavers shall bear the risk of any damage to or theft or loss of products during transport. The risk will pass to you at the moment of delivery.
We have made every effort to reproduce colours on this site as accurately as possible. However, different computers reproduce colours slightly differently therefore exact colour matches are not yet possible over the internet.
This means that when you order a frame, colours may differ slightly from what you see on the pictures.
If you are not satisfied with the colour of the frame you have ordered we offer a quick and easy exchange policy. (See Returns for more information.)
Neither Optisavers nor yourself will be obliged to fulfill any contractual obligation if either of us are prevented from doing so due to a circumstance outside our respective control including but not limited to postal strikes, electrical failure, transport interruption etc (‘force majeure’). For purposes of any Agreement and in addition to the above definition and any cases inplied by law, Force Majeure will be defined as any and all external causes, whether foreseen or unforeseen, which are beyond Optisavers’ control, but as a consequence of which Optisavers is unable to fulfill its obligations. Such will include strikes.
While a Force Majeure continues to operate Optisavers and you may suspend their respective obligations under any Agreement. If this period of suspension lasts over 2 months, either party will be entitled to treat any order accepted by Optisavers as terminated without further obligation to the other.
If Optisavers has already fulfilled its obligations under any Agreement in part when the Force Majeure occurs, Optisavers will be entitled to charge you for that fulfilled part.
Once a Force Majeure is operating if you have paid for a product yet to be dispatched to you, Optisavers shall return to you the amount paid.
Your Credit/Debit card will not be charged until your order has been processed, but prior to despatch.
