Users of this website are bound by these Terms and Conditions and should read this document before proceeding. Use of this website and information on this website is subject to the Terms and Conditions set out in this document. By using this website, the Customer is acknowledging their consent to be bound by these Terms and Conditions. Blakebrough Limited reserves, under sole discretion, the right to change these Terms and Conditions at any time, without notice. Any changes will be posted within this document. By use of this website, the Customer accepts that they are bound by the Terms and Conditions as they are written in this document.
In these terms of sale, “we” means Get Ready Comics (and “us” and “our” will be construed accordingly); and “you” means our customer or potential customer for products (and “your” will be construed accordingly).
Forming a Contract
When the customer places an order to purchase a product from this website, this order is a formal offer to purchase the mention product. You will then have the option to create an account with us and login; if you are an existing customer you may enter your login details, once you are logged in, or choose not to create an account, you must select a delivery option and proceed to order. Upon receipt of the customer’s order, we will send the customer a confirmation email illustrating the order placed. The confirmation email that Get Ready Comics sends is neither a guarantee nor an invoice. A contract between the customer and Get Ready Comics will come into existence when Get Ready Comics charge the customer’s credit or debit card for the purchase of the product. If you purchase more than 1 of a single product, we will classify your purchase as a wholesale customer, therefore invalidating your statutory rights to cancel or return goods to us.
We will not file a copy of these terms of sale specifically in relation to your order. We may update the version of these terms of sale on the website from time to time, and we do not guarantee that the version you have agreed to will remain accessible. We therefore recommend that you download, print and retain a copy of these terms of sale for your records.
Pricing & Payment
All prices on this website are in £ Sterling and include V.A.T. (where applicable). Get Ready Comics makes every effort to ensure that all products are correctly priced, but due to the high volume of products listed on this website, errors may occur and Get Ready Comics reserves the right to alter product prices on this website without notice. Other reasons for price alterations may include (but are not limited to) taxation charges or other duty increases. Prices for products are liable to change at any time, but changes will not affect contracts which have come into force.
In addition to the price of the products, you may have to pay a delivery charge, which will be as stated when you pay for the product.
Payment must be made upon the submission of your order. Our Stripe secure system accepts MasterCard, Visa, Visa Debit, American Express and Maestro. We also accept payments through PayPal, Clearpay and Klarna. We may withhold the products and/or cancel the contract between us if the price is not received from you in full.
Payment for all products must be made through one of the payment options available.
If you dispute any payment made to us you must contact us immediately and provide full details of your claim. If you submit an unjustified credit card, debit card or other charge-back then you will be liable to pay us, within 7 days following the date of the charge-back: (i) an amount equal to the amount of the charge-back; (ii) all third party expenses incurred by us in relation to the charge-back (include charges made by our or your bank or payment processor or card issuer); and (iii) all our reasonable costs, losses and expenses incurred in recovering the amounts referred to in this paragraph (including without limitation legal fees and debt collection fees).
Without prejudice to our other rights, if you submit an unjustified credit card, debit card or other charge-back, then we may terminate any contracts between you and us under these terms of sale by giving you written notice of termination. For the avoidance of doubt, if you fail to recognise or fail to remember the source of an entry on your card statement or other financial statement, and make a charge-back as a result, this will constitute an unjustified charge-back.
When a release date is listed on this website, that date is subject to information received from the supplier of the goods. Get Ready Comics will not be held responsible if that item is delayed or cancelled, or in the unusual event that the content or cover art has changed. Where a product is cancelled, Get Ready Comics will cancel the customer’s order and any payment made will be refunded to the customer. Get Ready Comics sells a number of limited editions on this website.
The availability of these items is strictly on a ‘first come first served’ basis. Get Ready Comics will endeavour to fulfil every customer’s order; however, once the supply of the limited edition item is exhausted and the customer’s order cannot be fulfilled, Get Ready Comics will cancel the Customer’s order and any payment made will be refunded to the Customer through the Customer’s chosen payment method. Get Ready Comics will not be responsible for compensating the Customer for any other losses connected with the purchase of limited edition products.
If you purchase more than 1 of a single product, we will classify your purchase as a wholesale customer, therefore invalidating your statutory rights to cancel or return goods to us regardless of event.
You warrant to us that:
(a) You are legally capable of entering into binding contracts, and you have full authority, power and capacity to agree to these terms of sale;
(b) The information provided in your order is accurate and complete;
(c) You will be able to accept delivery of the products;
(d) You are resident in UK, Ireland or Europe; and
(e) You are at least 18 years of age.
Product prices on this website are exclusive of delivery and shipping charges, with the exception of the Total Price listed in the shopping cart, which is inclusive of these charges, and clearly stated. The delivery and shipping rates will be automatically calculated in the basket based on the shipping location given. Further information on delivery can be found in the FAQ section of the website. The standard shipping rates are held at a flat rate. Get Ready Comics reserves the right to change the flat rate at any time without notice. Please be aware, since 1st January 2021 when a package is delivered within the EU it may be subject to import taxes, customs duties, and/or fees imposed by the destination country such as handling fees. The Customer is responsible for paying these fees and Get Ready Comics cannot verify what they will be prior to shipping.
Get Ready Comics will use reasonable endeavours to deliver products to the customer as soon as possible. We will arrange for the products to be delivered to the address indicated in your order. We reserve the right not to deliver to an address that we may consider to be unsecure for example to a communal postal address or a PO Box. If this affects your order, we will contact you as soon as possible. For a high priced item, we may reserve the right to deliver to your billing address only. Should this be the case, we will contact you after the order has been placed. Get Ready Comics will not be liable to the Customer in the event that Get Ready Comics is prevented by circumstance from delivering product that the Customer has ordered.
If the order is deemed as delivered by the courier, but the customer does not have possession of the parcel and believes the parcel may have been taken without prior permission, it is the customer’s responsibility to alert any theft from their property to the police as soon as possible. In order to make a claim for missing parcels, Get Ready Comics will be required to send the crime reference number to the courier as part of the claims process. Get Ready Comics will take all reasonable measures to contact the courier to find out further information and help the customer to resolve the matter.
Risk and ownership
The products will be at your risk from the time of delivery. Ownership of the products will only pass to you upon the later of:
(a) Delivery of the products; and
(b) Receipt by us of full payment of all sums due in respect of the products (including delivery charges).
We will be entitled to recover payment for the products even where ownership has not passed to you.
Right to cancel
The customer may cancel and return their order up to 14 days after you have received your goods. It is strongly advised that the customer checks their order on arrival to allow Get Ready Comics the time to recify any issues quickly and within the returns window of 14 days. In order to cancel a contract in this way, you must inform Get Ready Comics with a written notice of the intended return by email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The customer must email Get Ready Comics to start the returns process and receive authorisation for the return. If the customer sends an item(s) back to Get Ready Comics without prior authorisation, we will deduct 10% from the refund amount to cover the additional administration. Once the customer’s request to return has been authorised, the item(s) must be sent back to Get Ready Comics in its original state within 7 days. Get Ready Comics will advise which address returns must be sent to. If returns are sent to a different address, a 10% fee will be deducted from any refund due. Should a customer wish to invoke their right to cancel on any item, the product must be promptly returned to Get Ready Comics, in the same condition in which you received them with all seals and wrappings intact. All shipping back to Get Ready Comics is paid for by the customer, unless the item is faulty. We are unable to refund your postal fees.
If Get Ready Comics has not yet despatched the product, you must contact us within 14 days of placing the order. If you contact us after 14 days from date of purchase, it is at our discretion whether we cancel your order and store credit or product swaps will be the options offered at this stage. If Get Ready Comics has already despatched the product, the customer undertakes the responsibility to return that product to Get Ready Comics .
In this event, Get Ready Comics will refund the cost of the item, but will not refund any postal charges paid by the customer as part of their initial order. The customer must return the item to Get Ready Comics within 14 days of dispatch to qualify for a refund.
If you cancel a contract on this basis and you do not return the products to us, we may recover the products and charge you for the costs we incur in doing so. Similarly, if you return the products at our expense, we may pass that expense on to you.
For purchases in store, items are sold as seen and Get Ready Comics will only accept returns for faulty goods. For any unwanted items we will offer an exchange only for items of the same value. Customers must bring the items back to the store within 14 days of purchase.
If you cancel a contract and are entitled to a refund, we will usually refund any money received from you using the same method originally used by you to pay for your purchase. We will process the refund due to you as soon as possible (providing we have received the goods returned, and they are in a saleable condition) and, in any event; within 30 days of the day we received your valid notice of cancellation.
