Terms & Conditions
Ownable is a new type of transactional platform that processes consumers "buy requests" on their behalf. The terms and conditions set out below should be read in this context
The purpose of the Ownable platform is to facilitate the purchase of products seen in printed magazines. Our contract with a reader is to hold their money in escrow until the order can be placed with the product brand or supplier. At the point of placement the the reader becomes the customer of the supplier, whose terms and conditions then apply.
At this point our contract with the reader has been fulfilled. Until that point the reader has absolute control - a single button press cancels their request and refunds their money directly to them. It is entirely the actions of the reader to place or not to place an order. Ownable has no control over this
By using ownable you agree to be bound by these terms.
Orders placed by you will be communicated to the supplier to fulfil in the normal way on their usual terms.
The price of a product includes VAT (where applicable) at the current rate chargeable. The price of delivery is shown to UK mainland only. A higher delivery charge may be payable to territories outside of the UK mainland.
If the Supplier is not able to fulfil an order within a reasonable time you will be given the option of placing the product on back order.
Products personalised or specifically made to your specification (including, the selection of one or more options) will be delivered on the date agreed with the Supplier. If the Supplier fails to fulfil the order within 14 days of the agreed date then, unless the delay was cause by one of the mitigating causes set out below, or you have agreed an alternative delivery date, then the you shall have the option to cancel the order by giving 14 days notice by email.
Mitigating causes are events outside of the Suppliers reasonable control such as act(s) of God, wars, terrorist attacks, embargoes, riots, strikes, lock-outs, trade disputes, fires, floods, earthquakes or other natural disasters, break-down, inclement weather, interruption of transport, Government action or failure of public or private telecommunications or transport networks.
If such a mitigating event affects the delivery of products to you, the Supplier will contact you to arrange a new delivery date after the event is over.
