      3. Setting a new deadline for delivery. If you do not wish to treat the contract as at an end straight away, or do not have the right to do so under clause 7.8, you can give us a new deadline for delivery, which must be reasonable, and you can treat the contract as at an end if we do not meet the new deadline.
      4. Ending the contract for late delivery. If you do choose to treat the contract as at an end for late delivery under clause 7.7 or clause 7.8, you can cancel your order for any of the goods or reject goods that have been delivered. If you wish, you can reject or cancel the order for some of those goods (not all of them), unless splitting them up would significantly reduce their value. After that we will refund any sums you have paid to us for the cancelled goods and their delivery.  If the goods have been delivered to you, you must either return them in person to where you bought them, post them back to us or (if they are not suitable for posting) allow us to collect them from you. We will pay the costs of postage or collection. Please call customer services on 07825 235 504 or email us at musicaldots@musicaldots.co.uk for a return label or to arrange collection.

  • When you own goods. You own the delivered product once we have received payment in full.
  • What will happen if you do not give required information to us. We may need certain information from you so that we can supply the products and services to you, for example, the number of participants, the venue size etc. We will contact you in writing to ask for this information. If you do not give us this information within a reasonable time of us asking for it, or if you give us incomplete or incorrect information, we may either end the contract (and clause 10.2 will apply) or make an additional charge of a reasonable sum to compensate us for any extra work that is required as a result. We will not be responsible for supplying the products or services late or not supplying any part of them if this is caused by you not giving us the information we need within a reasonable time of us asking for it. 
  • Reasons we may suspend the supply of products to you. We may have to suspend the supply of a product to:

 

        1. deal with technical problems or make minor technical changes;
        2. update the product to reflect changes in relevant laws and regulatory requirements;
        3. make changes to the product or services as requested by you or notified by us to you (see clause 6).

 

  • Your rights if we suspend the supply of products or services. We will contact you in advance to tell you we will be suspending supply, unless the problem is urgent or an emergency. If we have to suspend supply for longer than 28 days we will adjust the price so that you do not pay for products while they are suspended. You may contact us to end the contract for a product if we suspend it, or tell you we are going to suspend it, in each case for a period of more than 28 days and we will refund any sums you have paid in advance for the product in respect of the period after you end the contract.
  • We may also suspend supply of the products if you do not pay. We may charge you for products, services and digital content either via our third party payment gateway (which will be linked to the order page on our Website) and/or via invoicing arrangements. If products or services are required to be paid for at the time of ordering, you will not complete your order nor receive delivery until such time as you make that payment. Where we are invoicing for ongoing services or similar products and you do not pay us by the method stipulated in the invoice for the products when you are supposed to (see clause 12.4) and you still do not make payment within 14 days of us reminding you that payment is due, we may suspend supply of the products until you have paid us the outstanding amounts. We will contact you to tell you we are suspending supply of the products. We will not suspend the products where you dispute the unpaid invoice (see clause 12.6). We will not charge you for the products during the period for which they are suspended. As well as suspending the products we can also charge you interest on your overdue payments (see clause 12.5).  
  • Your rights to end the contract
  • You can always end your contract with us.  Your rights when you end the contract will depend on what you have bought, whether there is anything wrong with it, how we are performing and when you decide to end the contract:
  • If what you have bought is faulty or misdescribed you may have a legal right to end the contract (or to get the product repaired or replaced or a service re-performed or to get some or all of your money back), see clause 11;
  • If you want to end the contract because of something we have done or have told you we are going to do see clause 8.2;
  • If you have just changed your mind about the product, see clause 8.3. You may be able to get a refund if you are within the cooling-off period, but this may be subject to deductions in certain circumstances and/or for certain types of goods or services and you will have to pay the costs of return of any goods; 
  • In all other cases (if we are not at fault and there is no right to change your mind), see below.
  • Ending the contract because of something we have done or are going to do. If you are ending a contract for a reason set out at (a) to (e) below the contract will end immediately and we will refund you in full for any products which have not been provided and you may also be entitled to compensation. The reasons are:

 

        1. we have told you about an upcoming change to the product or these terms which you do not agree to (see clause 6.2);
        2. we have told you about an error in the price or description of the product you have ordered and you do not wish to proceed;
        3. there is a risk that supply of the products may be significantly delayed because of events outside our control; 
        4. we have suspended supply of the products for technical reasons, or notify you we are going to suspend them for technical reasons, in each case for a period of more than 30 days; or
        5. you have a legal right to end the contract because of something we have done wrong (including because we have delivered late (see clause 7.7). 

 

  • Exercising your right to change your mind (Consumer Contracts Regulations 2013). For most products bought online you have a legal right to change your mind within 14 days and receive a refund.  These rights, under the Consumer Contracts Regulations 2013, are explained in more detail in these terms. 
  • When you don’t have the right to change your mind.  You do not have a right to change your mind in respect of:

 

 

        1. digital products after you have started to download or stream these; 
        2. services, once these have been performed, even if the cancellation period is still running;
        3. products sealed for health protection or hygiene purposes, once these have been unsealed after you receive them;
        4. sealed audio or sealed video recordings or sealed computer software, once these products are unsealed after you receive them; and 

 

  • How long do I have to change my mind? How long you have depends on what you have ordered and how it is delivered.
  • Have you bought services? If so, you have 14 days after the day we email you to confirm we accept your order. However, once we have completed the services you cannot change your mind, even if the period is still running. If you cancel after we have started the services, you must pay us for the services provided up until the time you tell us that you have changed your mind.
  • Have you bought digital content for download or streaming? If so, you have 14 days after the day we email you to confirm we accept your order, or, if earlier, until you start downloading or streaming.  If we delivered the digital content to you immediately, and you agreed to this when ordering, you will not have a right to change your mind.
  • Have you bought goods? If so you have 14days after the day you (or someone you nominate) receives the goods, unless:
  • Your goods are split into several deliveries over different days. In this case you have until 14 days after the day you (or someone you nominate) receives the last delivery to change your mind about the goods.
  • Your goods are for regular delivery over a set period.  In this case you have until 14 days after the day you (or someone you nominate) receives the first delivery of the goods.
  • Ending the contract where we are not at fault and there is no right to change your mind. Even if we are not at fault and you do not have a right to change your mind (see clause 8.1), you can still end the contract before it is completed, but you may have to pay us compensation. A contract for goods or digital content is completed when the product is delivered, downloaded or streamed and paid for. A contract for services is completed when we have finished providing the services and you have paid for them. If you want to end a contract before it is completed where we are not at fault and you have not changed your mind, just contact us to let us know. The contract will end immediately and we will refund any sums paid by you for products not provided but we may deduct from that refund (or, if you have not made an advance payment, charge you) reasonable compensation for the net costs we will incur as a result of your ending the contract.
  • How to end the contract with us (including if you have changed your mind)
  • Tell us you want to end the contract. To end the contract with us, please let us know by doing one of the following:  
  • Phone or email. Call customer services on 07825 235 504 or email us at musicaldots@musicaldots.co.uk.  Please provide your name, home address, details of the order and, where available, your phone number and email address.

  • Returning products after ending the contract. If you end the contract for any reason after products have been dispatched to you or you have received them, you must return them to us. You must either return the goods in person to where you bought them, post them back to us at 49, Cedar Ave, Barnet, Hertfordshire EN4 8DX or (if they are not suitable for posting) allow us to collect them from you. Please call customer services on 07825 235 504 or email us at musicaldots@musicaldots.co.uk for a return label or to arrange collection.  If you are exercising your right to change your mind you must send off the goods within 14 days of telling us you wish to end the contract. 
  • When we will pay the costs of return. We will pay the costs of return:

 

      1. if the products are faulty or misdescribed;
      2. if you are ending the contract because we have told you of an upcoming change to the product or these terms, an error in pricing or description, a delay in delivery due to events outside our control or because you have a legal right to do so as a result of something we have done wrong; or
      3. if you are exercising your right to change your mind.

In all other circumstances (including where you are exercising your right to change your mind) you must pay the costs of return.   

 

  • What we charge for collection. If you are responsible for the costs of return and we are collecting the product from you, we will charge you the direct cost to us of collection. The costs of collection will be the same as our charges for standard delivery.
  • How we will refund you.  We will refund you the price you paid for the products including delivery costs, by the method you used for payment. However, we may make deductions from the price, as described below.
  • Deductions from refunds if you are exercising your right to change your mind. If you are exercising your right to change your mind: 

 

        1. We may reduce your refund of the price (excluding delivery costs) to reflect any reduction in the value of the goods, if this has been caused by your handling them in a way which would not be permitted in a shop. If we refund you the price paid before we are able to inspect the goods and later discover you have handled them in an unacceptable way, you must pay us an appropriate amount. 
        2. The maximum refund for delivery costs will be the costs of delivery by the least expensive delivery method we offer. For example, if we offer delivery of a product within 3-5 days at one cost but you choose to have the product delivered within 24 hours at a higher cost, then we will only refund what you would have paid for the cheaper delivery option.
        3. Where the product is a service, we may deduct from any refund an amount for the supply of the service for the period for which it was supplied, ending with the time when you told us you had changed your mind. The amount will be in proportion to what has been supplied, in comparison with the full coverage of the contract.

 

  • When your refund will be made. We will make any refunds due to you as soon as possible.  If you are exercising your right to change your mind then: 

 

        1. If the products are goods and we have not offered to collect them, your refund will be made within 14 days from the day on which we receive the product back from you or, if earlier, the day on which you provide us with evidence that you have sent the product back to us. For information about how to return a product to us, see clause 9.2.
        2. In all other cases, your refund will be made within 14 days of your telling us you have changed your mind

 

  • Our rights to end the contract
  • We may end the contract if you break it. We may end the contract for a product at any time by writing to you if:

 

        1. you do not make any payment to us when it is due and you still do not make payment within 28 days of us reminding you that payment is due;
        2. you do not, within a reasonable time of us asking for it, provide us with information that is necessary for us to provide the products, for example, address, number of participants.
        3. you do not, within a reasonable time, allow us to deliver the products to you or collect them from us; 
        4. you do not, within a reasonable time, allow us access to your premises to supply the services.

 

  • You must compensate us if you break the contract.

Summary of your key legal rights

This is a summary of your key legal rights. These are subject to certain exceptions. For detailed information please visit the Citizens Advice website www.adviceguide.org.uk or call 03454 04 05 06.

See also Exercising your right to change your mind (Consumer Contracts Regulations 2013).

 

  • Price and Payment
  • Where to find the price for the product. The price of the product (which includes VAT) will be the price indicated on the order pages when you placed your order. We take all reasonable care to ensure that the price of the product advised to you is correct. However please see clause 12.3 for what happens if we discover an error in the price of the product you order. 
  • We will pass on changes in the rate of VAT. If the rate of VAT changes between your order date and the date we supply the product, we will adjust the rate of VAT that you pay, unless you have already paid for the product in full before the change in the rate of VAT takes effect.
  • What happens if we got the price wrong. It is always possible that, despite our best efforts, some of the products we sell may be incorrectly priced. We will normally check prices before accepting your order so that, where the product’s correct price at your order date is less than our stated price at your order date, we will charge the lower amount. If the product’s correct price at your order date is higher than the price stated to you, we will contact you for your instructions before we accept your order. If we accept and process your order where a pricing error is obvious and unmistakeable and could reasonably have been recognised by you as a mispricing, we may end the contract, refund you any sums you have paid and require the return of any goods provided to you.
  • When you must pay and how you must pay. We accept payment via a third party payment gateway provider, currently Stripe (whose own terms and conditions and privacy policy will apply to the transaction), we also accept payment with Apple Pay, Google Pay and Paypal and by bank transfer where we invoice you for higher value or longer term goods or services. When you must pay depends on what product you are buying:

 

        1. For goods, you must pay for the products before we dispatch them. We will not charge your credit or debit card until we dispatch the products to you. 
        2. For digital content, you must pay for the products before you download them.
        3. For services, [you must make an advance payment of 25% of the price of the services, before we start providing them. We will invoice you for the balance of the price of the services when we have completed them. You must pay each invoice within 28 calendar days after the date of the invoice. 

 

  • We can charge interest if you pay late. If you do not make any payment to us by the due date we may charge interest to you on the overdue amount at the rate of 4% a year above the base lending rate of Barclays Bank from time to time. This interest shall accrue on a daily basis from the due date until the date of actual payment of the overdue amount, whether before or after judgment. You must pay us interest together with any overdue amount. 
  • What to do if you think an invoice is wrong. If you think an invoice is wrong please contact us promptly to let us know. You will not have to pay any interest until the dispute is resolved. Once the dispute is resolved we will charge you interest on correctly invoiced sums from the original due date.
  • Our responsibility for loss or damage suffered by you
  • We are responsible to you for foreseeable loss and damage caused by us. If we fail to comply with these terms, we are responsible for loss or damage you suffer that is a foreseeable result of our breaking this contract or our failing to use reasonable care and skill, but we are not responsible for any loss or damage that is not foreseeable. Loss or damage is foreseeable if either it is obvious that it will happen or if, at the time the contract was made, both we and you knew it might happen, for example, if you discussed it with us during the sales process.
  • We do not exclude or limit in any way our liability to you where it would be unlawful to do so. This includes liability for death or personal injury caused by our negligence or the negligence of our employees, agents or subcontractors; for fraud or fraudulent misrepresentation; for breach of your statutory legal rights in relation to the products including the right to receive products which are: as described and match information we provided to you and any sample or model seen or examined by you; of satisfactory quality; fit for any particular purpose made known to us; supplied with reasonable skill and care and, where installed by us, correctly installed]; and for defective products under the Consumer Protection Act 1987.
  • When we are liable for damage to your property. If we are providing services in your property, we will make good any damage to your property caused by us while doing so. However, we are not responsible for the cost of repairing any pre-existing faults or damage to your property that we discover while providing the services. 

 

      1. If defective digital content which we have supplied damages a device or digital content belonging to you and this is caused by our failure to use reasonable care and skill we will either repair the damage or pay you compensation. However, we will not be liable for damage which you could have avoided by following our advice to apply an update offered to you free of charge or for damage which was caused by you failing to correctly follow installation instructions or to have in place the minimum system requirements advised by us]

 

  • We are not liable for business losses. We only supply the products for domestic and private use.
