Acceptance of your order

Please note that completion of the online checkout process does not constitute our acceptance of your offer to purchase products from us. Our acceptance of your order will take place only when we despatch your order. Prior to despatch, Blue Mind Sports has the right to decline an order for any reason, including legal and regulatory reasons.

We will notify you by email as soon as possible to acknowledge that we have received your order. The duration of our contract with you will start from the earlier of the date we contact you to arrange delivery and the date we despatch your order, and last until the last day of your right to cancel.

If we cannot supply you with the product you ordered, and an alternative product is not suitable or acceptable to you, we will not process your order, inform you of this in writing (including email) and refund you in full as soon as is reasonably possible.

If fulfillment of an order would be illegal or unlawful, including by reason of breach of export controls or sanction rules, Blue Mind Sports has the right to cease to fulfil the order at any time, including after notification to you that the order has been received and is being processed. You acknowledge that Blue Mind Sports shall incur no liability in such circumstances.

We accept payment in Euros by credit card or PayPal. Credit card payments are processed by PayPal.

All orders are charged to your card or PayPal account on completion of the checkout process. Please note that if you pay by card, when you enter the card details, the address given must be the one at which your card is registered. By completing the payment details you confirm that the credit or debit card being used is yours. We cannot accept responsibility for an order being held back as a result of incorrect or invalid payment details being given.

If there is a problem with your payment we will email or call you as soon as we can.

Gift Vouchers

You can use gift vouchers to purchase goods online or in store. You cannot exchange gift vouchers for cash. If the total value of the goods purchased is higher than the amount of the voucher, the excess can be paid by other means. If the total of the goods purchased is less than the value of the gift voucher, the balance can be redeemed against subsequent orders. You may not use gift vouchers to discharge indebtedness on an account.

When you redeem gift vouchers online you will be required to give the serial number of the voucher.

If you have to return goods you have purchased using a gift voucher, you will be issued with another gift voucher.

Gift vouchers cannot be returned or refunded. Blue Mind Sports will not accept liability if they are lost, stolen or damaged.

Gift vouchers do not have an expiry date.

Delivery

Delivery charges and timescales vary depending on the item ordered and the delivery address. Subject to the exclusions below, the total delivery charge will be shown at the checkout stage of the ordering process.

We reserve the right to change this delivery charge policy at any time and without notice.

Some items, such as composite canoes, cannot be sent with a carrier as they may get damaged in transit. In such cases, we will inform you by email or telephone as soon as possible to make alternative arrangements. This may involve carriage charges which will be agreed prior to delivery. If you collect the goods with the manufacturer, any delivery charges will be refunded.

Our aim is that orders received by noon Monday – Friday will be shipped that day. However, this is subject to the item being in stock. Delivery should be one to three days from shipment depending on the goods sent and the delivery address.

Most orders are sent by carrier and will require a signature on receipt. We will contact you prior to despatch to agree the best delivery date. Delivery may be any time between 8am and 6pm.

If there is nobody available at the delivery address to accept delivery a card should be left. Depending on which carrier was used, they may attempt delivery the next working day. However, this and any subsequent deliveries may incur a charge. Alternatively, they may give details of how to arrange redelivery or the address from where the parcel can be collected. We accept no liability if the delivery is not made due to the recipient not being available. If the recipient fails to collect the parcel or arrange redelivery in good time the goods will be returned to us and a charge will be made for redelivery to that or an alternative address.

In the event that you select a business address for delivery, we shall be deemed to have delivered the order to its intended recipient by delivering it to the reception area of the business address.

Small orders will be sent by PostNL. This may be Recorded Delivery, which will require a signature, depending on the size, weight and value of the order.

If you require delivery by a particular date, please let us know and we will contact you if we are unable to meet your deadline.

Where the supply of your product is delayed or prevented for reasons beyond our control (for example, material shortages, import delays or higher than anticipated demand) we will make every effort to keep you informed but shall be under no liability to you for such delay or failure.

Changes to your order

If your order has not been dispatched, you may be able to make changes to it. Any changes to your order must be notified to us in writing as soon as possible and may affect the delivery timetable or cost. You will be charged at the current price on the day you amend your order. Please email any changes to info@bluemindsport.com

Please be aware that, unless you are returning products because they are faulty or not as described, you will be responsible for any postage/carrier costs incurred in sending the goods back to us. We recommend that items being returned be sent via insured, trackable delivery for your protection. We will not be responsible for any loss or damage to them in transit.

We reserve the right to charge you, or reduce your refund, for any loss or damage in transit or if you have reduced the value of the items.

Within 14 days of receipt of the goods, Blue Mind Sports will give you a full refund of the amount paid for the returned item, including any standard delivery charge if applicable. Refunds can only be made using the same method as the original transaction. If you bought your item using a gift voucher, you will be issued with another gift voucher. Please note that refunds to credit cards can often take 2 – 3 days to appear on your credit card account.

Damaged or incorrectly supplied goods

On receipt, you should check all items against your order. If any items are damaged on delivery or incorrectly supplied please contact us as soon as possible, and in any event within 14 days, by phone or email and we will endeavour to rectify the problem as soon as possible. Please complete our returns form and send it with the damaged or incorrect items as soon as possible to the address on the form. We will then send you the replacement goods and refund any postage costs you incurred returning the items. Refunds can only be made using the same method as the original transaction. Please note that refunds to credit cards can often take 2 – 3 days to appear on your credit card account.

Exchanges

If you wish to exchange your purchase for a different size/colour you must notify us within 14 days by email or telephone of your intention to do this and you then have a further 14 days to return the goods. Please complete our returns form and send it with the relevant items to us at the address on the form. The item must be unused, undamaged and with original labels still attached. Please note that you are responsible for any return postage. We will not be responsible for any loss or damage in transit.

We reserve the right to make a Euro 5 charge to cover the costs of sending the replacement items. Large items such as canoes and paddles may incur a higher charge that will be agreed with you. Payment for this must be provided before we send out the replacement item. This charge does not apply if you collect the replacement goods from Blue Mind Sports.

For international orders the charge will vary depending on the current cost of delivery to that country. For an accurate price please contact us before returning the item.

If we are unable to supply the replacement items we will refund you the full amount paid for the item, including any standard delivery charge, using the same method as the original transaction.

Custom-made canoes or personalised items, DVDs and books are not returnable unless defective.

Returning faulty goods

Goods ordered at home must be as described, fit for purpose and of satisfactory quality. If any of the goods supplied by us fail to meet any of those criteria you have the right to reject them for a full refund. This right must be exercised within a 30 day period from the date you purchased the goods. If we fail to deliver within that 30 day period, or by a later date as agreed with you, you also have the right to cancel for a full refund. After 30 days you will not be entitled to a full refund if the product develops a fault.

If you wish to reject goods, please complete our returns form and send it with the items to the address shown on that form. If the goods are faulty we will contact you to arrange a repair or replacement.

Refunds will be for the item purchased plus any delivery charge that may have been made and will be by the same method as the original purchase.

All of the above does not affect your statutory rights.
