Terms and Conditions
Please read our terms and conditions carefully as they contain important information which you need to know in order to visit and use our website and to ensure an easy, enjoyable, safe and secure shopping experience. Please do not hesitate to e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org should you have any questions regarding these terms and conditions or have any comments or complaints. We reserve the right to make changes to our terms and conditions and our website will be updated as soon as possible to reflect these changes. It is your responsibility to regularly check our terms and conditions to ascertain any changes.
Ownership of Rights
All rights, including copyright (text or graphical) in this website are owned by Highland House of Fraser Ltd. Any unauthorised use of this website or its contents, including copying or storing in whole or part, other than for personal non-commercial use, is an infringement of that legal right.
We make every effort to ensure that our on-line shop is as accurate and complete as possible where products are fairly described and prices quoted are correct at time of publishing. All measurements, weights, dimensions and capacities listed are approximate. Due to system errors, sometimes products or prices may be inaccurately advertised on our website and therefore, please note that orders will only be accepted if there are no errors in the description or price of goods on this website. As computer monitors can be set differently, some colours displayed may vary slightly and will not accurately reflect the colour of the product upon delivery. For example, the colour of tartans can vary significantly. Particular tartans may be woven by more than one mill thereby using differing dyes and thread counts. Similarly a mill may manufacture a tartan in various weights whereby the heavier the weight, the larger the sett (pattern). Thus, when selecting tartans the dye and cloth weight must be taken into consideration, if trying to match with another product.
All products are subject to availability and product availability may change before we have had an opportunity to update our website. We will advise you as soon as possible if the goods you have ordered are unavailable.
By placing an order for the following products you are confirming that you are over age 18; knives or bladed articles.
We will contact you via your supplied e-mail address as soon as possible to confirm receipt of your order. A further e-mail will follow advising that charges have been verified and acceptance of your order. However, we reserve the right to cancel the contract at any time up until the despatch of the product(s) ordered. In these circumstances we will contact you as soon as possible.
Delays & Substitution
Occasionally, there may be a delay in goods due to high demand or material shortages. We will contact you as soon as possible should this situation arise and keep you informed of progress. Alternatively, we may offer substitute goods of equal quality and value, however we will not substitute goods without your prior authorisation.
All prices displayed are inclusive of V.A.T. (Value Added Tax). V.A.T. is automatically charged on qualifying goods for delivery to countries within the EU (European Union). The standard rate of V.A.T. is currently 20% but certain items are rated at 5% and 0%. For example, most items of children's clothing are subject to 0%. Goods deliveries to all other areas of the world are V.A.T. exempt and are therefore charged less V.A.T. Although we deduct V.A.T in these circumstances, deliveries may be subject to taxes being charged by the local customs authorities in the country of destination. We do not take any responsibility for any such taxes, or for any goods delayed or seized by the country of destination local customs authorities. Generally, we have found that only a small percentage of export orders are subject to local import taxes, however it may be advisable to check with your local customs authority before placing any order(s).
Under the Distance Selling Regulations, you have the right to cancel your order and may do so up until 7 working days after the day of receipt of your order to notify us.
