  2. Returns

    To make this process as simple and pain-free as possible, we request that you complete the Online Returns Form to obtain your RAN (Returns Authorisation Number). Not following this procedure may cause a delay in your refund or exchange. This does not affect your statutory rights.

    Refunds And Exchanges

    If for some reason you are not happy with your product you can return it to us for a refund or exchange.

    In order to qualify for a refund or exchange, you must request your RAN within 14 days of receiving your item, having taken good care of it and kept it in an unused state, complete with packaging and all it's components. See the Returns Page for details on how to get your RAN and returning your item.

    The refund will be made direct to the credit/charge card originally used to place the order unless requested otherwise. The refund will be made as soon as the item has been returned and if not received, then within 30 days of a RAN being requested.

    You will not be refunded for the P&P of your item, but please be aware that you are responsible for the returned item until it has reached us.

    This does not affect your Statutory Rights.

  3. Delivery

    You will normally receive three emails from us. The first email is your confirmation of order. This is confirmation that we have received your order. It is not confirmation that the order you have placed is guaranteed to be in stock or that it can be fulfilled. Sometimes errors do occur in our stock inventory or other customers order just before you. We cannot be liable or responsible for any loss occurring because your items are not in stock. We will endeavour to contact you as soon as possible if this is the case. The 2nd email you get from us is your email receipt and means that your order has been processed, your item(s) are in stock. The 3rd email will tell you that your order is being shipped.

    We will make every effort to deliver your order within the time estimate (the estimate is in working days unless otherwise stated) provided on our website. However, this is an estimate, and delivery within the time quoted cannot be guaranteed. If the goods are not delivered within the time we have estimated, please feel free to contact us by telephone (08445 090 444) or email and we will try to resolve the issue promptly.

    The Order Status request facility is there for your convenience and allows you to highlight to us that you have yet to receive your order. If you are using this facility please ensure you complete all the required information and only submit a request once the estimated delivery time has elapsed or we may not respond to that request.

    We will not be liable for any loss caused to you by late delivery over the estimated provided.

    Please note that we do not dispatch goods to PO Boxes and reserve the right to cancel any order where the address is later found to be a PO Box.

    Please refer to the Delivery section for further information.

  4. Non Delivery

    It is the buyer's responsibility to notify us if the goods have not been received within 21 days of the estimated delivery date or receipt of our invoice.

    If no notification is made within this time period the buyer shall be deemed to have received the goods.

  5. Duty/Import/General Sale Tax on International Delivery

    For countries outside the EU there may be taxes and fees or other charges that you may be liable for. Please check with your local customs office before the order is placed as these charges vary from country to country and we do not have a control over these charges. We have provided an idea of the duty threshold on our website but this is for guidance only and may change at any time.

    If local import and custom charges are refused or not paid by you, then the item could be returned to us or possibly even destroyed. If your order is not returned to us we may not be able to refund you for your order. We would not be able to refund any original postage costs paid and can only refund for the returned products minus any costs incurred in returning them to us.

  6. Promotional Offers

    Some of our products offer a "Free Item" along side ordering a product.

    This "Free Item" is subject to availability, and ordering the said product does not guarantee the customer the "Free Item".

    Should the product ordered, with the attached free item, be requested for return or exchange, the "Free Item" will also be requested for return.

    A "Free Item" will not be sent if an order is made in conjunction with any other offer, including Price Promises.

  7. Promotional Codes

    If you have a valid Promotional Code then you can enter it into the Promo Code box on the checkout page and your order will be discounted accordingly. Please ensure that you check the expiry date and any limitations as they normally run for a limited time only and may be restricted to certain brands, products or categories. Please note that Promotional Codes are subject to change, can be withdrawn at any time and only one Promo Code can be entered per order. We do not accept Promotional Codes encouraging repeat custom if you cancel your original order.

    If you have any issues with the use of Promotional Codes please contact our customer services department by our Contact Us form and we will get back to you as soon as possible.

  14. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment Regulations (WEEE Regulations)

    The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment Regulations are now part of UK law. The UK have agreed to reduce the amount of WEEE that is being disposed of in landfill sites.

    It is important that the amount of WEEE sent to landfill sites is reduced because:

    Some WEEE can be re-used or recycled. The amount of landfill space available in the UK is decreasing. If we can keep WEEE out of landfill sites it means there is more landfill space available for non-recyclable waste.

    WEEE can contain hazardous substances. When left in landfill sites the hazardous substances in WEEE can pollute soil and contaminate water supplies. This contamination can damage human health and the environment.

    Distributors of new Electric and Electronic Equipment (or EEE) have a part to play in reducing the amount of WEEE going into landfill sites.

    Blackleaf.com are "doing our bit" under these regulations by offering our customers free take-back of their WEEE on a like-for-like basis when they buy a new Electrical or Electronic product.

    For example, if a customer buys a new torch from us we will take back their old torch (provided it is of equivalent type and function) and prevent it going into a landfill site by disposing of it safely. Customers must return their old WEEE within 28 days of purchasing their new item. Customers do not have to pay to return their old item to us.

    If you wish to return your WEEE item, please contact us at the telephone number 08445 090 444 or using our Contact Us form.

    Under the WEEE Regulations, all new electrical goods should now be marked with the crossed-out wheeled bin symbol shown below:

    Goods are marked with this symbol to show that they were produced after 13th August 2005, and should be disposed of separately from normal household waste.

  15. Blackleaf.com are pleased to take back and recycle used batteries free of charge for recycling for customers within the UK.

    By recycling your used batteries via dedicated battery collection points you are contributing to protecting our environment and the earth's natural resources.

    Batteries are made from important resources and chemicals, including lead, cadmium, zinc, lithium and mercury. If batteries are disposed of as normal municipal household waste, they will be taken to a landfill site and those resources will be lost and will contribute to the pollution of the environment. Recycling is one way you can help the environment and you should dispose of used batteries separately from other waste, using the collection and recycling schemes available.

    Your role in contributing to the recycling of waste batteries and in preventing pollution of the environment is essential. Each used battery that you place in a recycling box will be taken apart and many of the materials will be recovered and used to make new batteries or something else.

    All batteries are labeled with the crossed-out wheeled bin below, to indicate that they should not be disposed of as normal waste, but in specific recycling centres.

    Batteries containing hazardous substances such as mercury (Hg), cadmium (Cd) or lead (Pb) are marked with their chemical symbol as well.

    Please click here to identify a battery collection point near you that will accept your used batteries free of charge. Please make sure to select the 'Batteries' field before entering your postcode.

    You may also contact your local authority for information on a recycling facility in your area that will take back your used batteries. For used car batteries please contact you nearest Civic Amenity Site, or check the above link by carefully looking in the results which of the sites listed will accept car batteries for recycling.

  16. Policy Changes

    If we decide to change our policy, we will post those changes on this page so that you are always aware of what information we collect, how we use it and under what circumstances we disclose it. Any changes to this policy made by Internet Fusion Ltd will be posted here and will take effect immediately. Internet Fusion reserve the right to amend the terms and conditions without notice. This policy was last updated in February 2013.
