Our Products are sold subject to their product descriptions.  We take care that these are as accurate as possible but occasionally they may contain inaccuracies, omissions or typographical errors.

CREDIT CARD SECURITY

Your data is stored through Shopify’s data storage, databases and the general Shopify servers are based in the U.S.A. They store your data on a secure server behind a firewall. By ordering through villagepetz.com's website you agree to having your information stored on Shopify's server. Shopify Inc also provides a secure purchasing platform that is fully certified as compliant to the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS).

SHIPPING AND DELIVERIES

Shipping charges are indicated at the point of purchase and are also set out in our schedule of shipping rates available on our website.  All orders are shipped by either Royal Mail or Parcelforce.

If items are in stock we aim to have them dispatched within 4 working days of receipt of payment.  If items are back-ordered we will contact you following placement of your order to advise when we expect shipment. Where part of an order consists of both back-ordered items and in-stock items we will await for all items to be available before we ship.  Should you require the in-stock items immediately then please contact us to arrange separate shipping, which may be subject to additional postage fees.  We will consider on a case-by-case basis whether additional shipping charges are required for split-deliveries. You have the option to cancel an order for any items not in stock.

We must be informed of any items lost in transit within 10 days in order to submit a compensation claim.

If you wish to cancel your order with villagepetz.com then please do contact us in the first instance. You must cancel your order within 14 days of receiving the goods.

The goods must be returned unused in their original packaging to receive a full refund. If the goods are not in this condition then you will receive a partial refund as deemed appropriate by us.

RETURNS

villagepetz.com strives to ensure that every item is what you were looking for and products are sold subject to their descriptions. However, if you have any problems at all with the delivery or the item itself then please contact us.  We only replace goods if they are deemed defective or damaged.

Refunds or exchanges will only happen once the item has been returned to us within 14 days of being in contact about the issue.  We reserve the right to not refund items after 14 days of invoice date and will offer and exchange for another item or items of equal value instead.

Once your return is received and inspected, we will send you an email to notify you that we have received your returned item. We will also notify you of the approval or rejection of your refund.  If we accept the return then your refund will be processed, and a credit will automatically be applied to your credit card or original method of payment, within a certain amount of days. If you haven’t received a refund within 5 working days, check first with your bank and/or credit card provider prior to contacting us.

The buyer pays postage for any returns except where a faulty product is being returned.  Once the return has been received the original amount for the item will be reimbursed, along with the return postage for faulty items. To complete your return, we require a receipt or proof of purchase.

To return your product, you should mail it to:  Village Petz, 118 Main St, West Kilbride KA23 9AR, United Kingdom.
