Terms & Conditions
Shipping & Delivery
For mainland UK orders deliveries will be dispatched within 5 working days with on a next day delivery basis. For overseas orders delivery is dependent on destination address and country and buyers will be informed of this information on receipt of order or any email request for delivery times. Where next day delivery does not apply purchasers will be informed by email. For UK next day deliveries we use UK Mail and for overseas deliveries use Parcel2Go.
For your security, we do not store credit card details nor do we share customer details with any 3rd parties and use secure URL's to protect and encrypt your details in all sensitive areas of the site including all payments and your account management areas.
Returns, Refunds & Replacements
We will only refund goods purchased providing they are returned to us in a perfect and unused condition within 14 days, and at the buyers expense. When the goods have been returned and that have been confirmed to be in an unused condition and complete, there will be a 10% handling charge deducted from the item purchase total to cover administration costs but the cost of the delivery charge of the goods to the buyer will not be refunded. Once returned items have been received verified as being unused a refund will be made within 3 days. This rule however does not apply to chemicals sold as they cannot be returned to stock and resold as we cannot verify the quality of returned chemicals and therefore refunds are not permitted.
The criteria for other nonrefundable elements of any order are:
1/. Where services have to be purchased from 3rd party suppliers then refunds for those services cannot be given as the supplier has already provided a paid for service
2/. Shipping: Costs incurred in sending order to customer unless the item is faulty, for the UK this will be a maximum of £10 and for overseas it will be for the exact amount quoted or charged to us by the courier at point of order
3/. Work already undertaken by us or our agents at point of cancellation as detailed below cannot be refunded:
Website design: £400.00 if work completed
Website: if not completed then a standard charge of £50 per hour by us for any work on the design of that website plus any 3rd party costs incurred up to that point will be withheld
Video production: £200.00. This charge is non-refundable regardless of how much work has been put in by us or any 3rd party Film Production company, even if the video has not been completed.
Training Fees: If Training was included in the purchase then the buyer will be liable for the full fee (plus any travel/hotel costs incurred in that training)
4/. Gold Plated Gifts County Group Membership packages: All buyers of this package are subject to the following conditions

c/. Members must at all times act in a responsible and ethical way and do nothing to jeopardise the reputation of the Group they are a member of. If it is found that have not not done so they may be removed from the Group website at the discretion of Gold Solutions.
