Products, Pricing and Promotions
All products for sale on http://www.ewm.co.uk/ are subject to availability. If for any reason your order cannot be fulfilled owing to lack of stock, you will be made aware of this on the web page where you tried to place your order.
If only part of your order is available, we will dispatch the items that are in stock and cancel the out-of-stock items.
Every product is sold subject to the product description and supporting information such as size, colour, estimated delivery dates and guarantees. All sizes are in UK standard sizes (Size Guide). We make every effort to ensure that the product colour is as accurate as possible, but the colours shown may vary depending upon the setting of your computer monitor. We cannot guarantee that the colour shown will accurately reflect the colour upon delivery. We will take all reasonable care to ensure that all of the product details, descriptions and prices are correct at the time when the information was uploaded onto the website. However, the information may not always exactly reflect the position when you placed an order. Please note that the estimated delivery times are only estimates, and cannot be guaranteed. Packaging may vary from that shown. We reserve the right to refuse orders where the product information, price or product promotion has been incorrectly published.
All prices include VAT and are subject to change without prior notice.
The products will be at your risk from the time of delivery.
Ownership of the products will only pass to you when we receive full payment of all sums due in respect of the products, including delivery charges.
The price of any products will be as quoted on our site from time to time, except in cases of obvious error.
These prices, including VAT but excluding delivery costs, will be added to the total amount due as set out in the delivery information below.
Prices are liable to change at any time, but changes will not affect orders in respect of which we have already sent you in a Dispatch Confirmation.
Our site contains a large number of products and it is always possible that, despite our best efforts, some of the products listed on our site may be incorrectly priced. We will normally verify prices as part of our dispatch procedures so that, where a product’s correct price is less than our stated price, we will charge the lower amount when dispatching the product to you. If a product’s correct price is higher than the price stated on our website, we will normally, at our discretion, either contact you for instructions before dispatching the product, or reject your order and notify you of such rejection.
We are under no obligation to provide the product to you at the incorrect (lower) price, even after we have sent you a Dispatch Confirmation, if the pricing error is obvious and unmistakable and could have reasonably been recognised by you as a mis-pricing.
We run promotions both in our stores and on http://www.ewm.co.uk/. Some of these promotions may be exclusively online, exclusively in-store or only available to customers in certain areas.
Discounted products available on http://www.ewm.co.uk/ have been on sale at the higher marked price either on the web site or in at least one of our retail stores for at least 28 consecutive days in the last 6 months.
The Contract and Contract Cancellation
When you place an order with http://www.ewm.co.uk/, we will send you an order acknowledgement by email containing all the details of your order. This is NOT an order confirmation but an acknowledgement that your order has been received. Our acceptance of your order will take place when we charge your payment method for your order. At this point, we will send you a dispatch confirmation email. Any products on the same order, which we have not confirmed in a Dispatch Confirmation email, will not form part of that contract.
We reserve the right to refuse an order. Non acceptance of an order may be as a result of one of the following, but not limited to: the product ordered being out of stock; our inability to obtain the authorisation for payment; the identification of an error within the product information, including price and promotion; you not meeting the eligibility to order as set out in the Terms and Conditions.
You are seeking to enter into a contract with The Edinburgh Woollen Mill Ltd when you place an order.

International Delivery Information
Orders placed on our website for shipment to countries other than the UK are subject to different terms and conditions and where relevant these are incorporated into the T&C’s describing our services throughout the site and wherever you need to reference them.
* International shipping services are dependent upon home country postal services. The estimated delivery time quoted should serve as guidance only. We cannot guarantee delivery dates or give any indication of when date of delivery will occur.
If you'd like to have items sent to separate addresses, please complete a separate order for each address. A separate delivery charge will be made for each address.
In some countries you may need to sign for an international delivery. Please check with your local postal services if you are unsure.
Customs Duty, Excise & Other Local Taxes
In some countries, mainly outside the European Union, the receiver of the package may be liable for taxes, fees or other charges that are imposed by local laws or legislation in your country. The recipient of the order is responsible for all customs formalities relating to their import and where required to do so will need to pay any additional charges, including import duty, customs charges, taxes, levies and any other charges. The recipient of the goods, not the person who's ordered them, will receive a separate request for payment of these charges.
If you are ordering goods for delivery to someone else please make sure they are aware of the possibility of these additional payments and that they will be responsible for payment. Since we have no control over these charges we are unable to predict what they may be and consequently we are unable to provide any assistance with these processes.
Edinburgh Woollen Mill has no control over these import regulations or additional charges and we suggest you contact the local authorities or postal service in the destination country for further advice.
Prices, Taxes and Payment
The website will charge and take payment in £ Pound Sterling. All prices shown on the site are inclusive of local UK (Value Added Tax) VAT at 20% and if you are in an EU country currently, this will be the price you pay.
