Please read these conditions of sale carefully. You will be asked to expressly agree to these conditions of sale before you place an order for products from our website.
In these conditions of sale, “we” means Steve Giles Woodturning / Steve Giles (and “us” and “our” will be construed accordingly); and “you” means our customer or potential customer for products (and “your” will be construed accordingly).
(3) Order process
The advertising of products on our website constitutes an “invitation to treat”; and your order for products constitutes a contractual offer. No contract will come into force between you and us unless and until we accept your order in accordance with the procedure detailed below. In order to enter into a contract to purchase products from us, you will need to take the following steps:
(i) you must add any the products you wish to purchase to your shopping basket, and then proceed to the checkout;
(ii) if you are a new customer, you must then create an account with us and log in; if you are an existing customer, you must enter your login details;
(iii) once you are logged in, you must select your preferred method of delivery and confirm your order and your consent to these conditions of sale;
(iv) you will be transferred to the PayPal website, and PayPal will handle your payment. Alternatively, postal cheque payments, drawn against a UK bank in Pounds Sterling can be sent or Direct Bank Transfers (BACS) made. If these options are chosen, goods will not be dispatched until payment has been cleared.
(v) we will then send you an order acknowledgment; and
(vi) once we have checked whether we are able to meet your order, we will either send you an order confirmation/processing (at which point your order will become a binding contract) or we will confirm by email that we are unable to meet your order.
(4) Price and Payment
Prices for products are quoted on our website. The website contains a large number of products and it is always possible that some of the prices on the website may be incorrect. We will verify prices as part of our sale procedures so that a product’s correct price will be stated (when you pay for the product). In addition to the price of the products, you (will/may) have to pay a delivery charge, which will be as stated when you pay for the product.
We will not file a copy of these conditions of sale specifically in relation to your order. We may update the version of these conditions 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 conditions of sale for your records. The only language in which we provide these conditions of sale is English.
All products shipped within the UK are insured in transit. Shipments to other countries depend on the carrier used. Please contact us before ordering if you have specific requirements regarding shipping.

If any product is damaged in transit or is faulty when it arrives, it can be returned for a full refund or replacement. Please note that you will be responsible for the costs of returning the item(s) unless it was delivered to you in error, or if the item is damaged or defective.
