General Contract Terms and Conditions (T&C)

My service is (for all concerned) a matter of business, the provision of a set of standard rules with respect to these business transactions is unavoidable. To this end, the following General Contract Terms and Conditions have been pulled together, and shall be agreed between you and me (I am RoydonsPhotography, 7 Steer Road, Swanage, Dorset, BH19 2RU):

Ordering and Registering on Website

Ordering and Registration is restricted to natural persons of full age and legal capacity, legal persons, or partnerships. Children are not permitted to order and register. I ask for your understanding in this matter.

I must ask that all the information is correct and complete as errors can cause problems with order fulfilment. I reserve the right, although not obliged to check all information provided to confirm that it is correct as far as possible.

Should any or all of the information given at time of ordering / registration subsequently change, it shall be down to you to correct the information without delay. On registration, a user name and password must be selected. Please do not infringe the rights of others – in particular copyright or trademark rights. Further, the username must not be misleading and must not be contrary to public policy or break the law. I shall be at liberty to reject existing user names – including with retrospective effect.

Passwords must be kept confidential and account access must be safeguarded. You are obliged to notify me without delay should you have any suspicion concerning misuse of the account by third parties.

How are services provided?

Orders placed through the website will be fulfilled in the “Real World” so I ask for the understanding that the website and its functions available for use are within the limits and scope of current technology so in the event of failure of online systems delivery and fulfilment may be compromised or impossible.

Once an order has been place online, via telephone, email or in person and payment has been accepted the selected product is printed to order if not available from stock. This order is then suitably packaged and referred to a third party delivery company if collection in person has not been arranged.
For reasons of further development and security as well as in the interests of an error-free service, regular maintenance work and updates take place on the website. To this end, and with due regard to your interests, I shall be entitled to temporarily interrupt or restrict the provision of our services. Insofar as possible, such maintenance work shall be carried out in times of minimal use. Should longer periods of interruption or restriction be necessary, I shall notify you of the type, extent, and duration of the impairment provided that this is possible in light of all the circumstances and that such notification does not prejudice or delay necessary repair to any existing interruption of service. You will be aware that according to the current state of technology it is not possible for works to be made available for viewing on the internet free of system interference and breakdown. I cannot accept liability for non-accessibility of works on account of technical problems with communication networks, security breaches by third parties (e.g. denial of service attacks) or incomplete and/or dated offers on proxy servers (temporary caches), where such is beyond my control.

A contract of sale shall be concluded when I have sent the ordered product to you. For the avoidance of doubt, the contract shall not include products included in the same order which were then later not included on the delivery papers. The costs of delivery shall be invoiced. The extent of delivery costs will be indicated on order. Should any taxes or excise duties be incurred in case of delivery to a country outside the EU, all such costs shall be borne by you.

All delivery deadlines indicated are non-binding. I shall be entitled to make partial deliveries.

Retention of ownership

Ownership of the works produced and any products shall remain vested in Roydons Photography until all payments are made with cleared funds.

Where the buyer defaults on payment, I shall be entitled to charge default interest on all outstanding sums to the amount of 6% p.a. above the basic interest rate set down by the Bank of England’s base rate. Additionally, a charge of £6.50 per reminder with exception of the first reminder shall be made. Where greater damage arising through the default can be proved, I shall be entitled to assert this against the defaulting buyer. In the above listed cases, it shall remain open to the buyer to prove that I have occurred either no damage or else damage to a lesser extent than the above listed fixed sums.

Have a Query? What you should do.

Inspect any delivery, make notes, photograph any problems if possible. Notify me of any problems by Phone, Email, or in writing of any defects or problems without delay.  In all cases, notification of all delivery defects must be made within one week. For the calculation of this time limit, the date of delivery and the date of receipt of notification of defect are decisive.

In case of any objection, all documentation with respect to the order must be made available to me. Failure to do so may result in delay to the assessment and processing of the notification of defect. Defects in part of the delivery do not justify objection to the entire delivery.

What guarantee applies to services?

In case of defect, I shall be entitled, at my option and within a reasonable period, to make new delivery or to repair the defect. Should the attempt to deliver a new or to repair the defect be unsuccessful, you shall be entitled to your option of either to rescind the order or to demand an appropriate reduction in price.

The papers, dyes, chemicals and other materials used in our materials and manufacturing processes may, like other dyes, show trivial changes over time. These changes may be different from one production batch to another. Such discrepancies in product characteristics shall not form sufficient basis for defect.

Return policy

Distance selling regulations give 14 days from receipt of goods to cancel the order through a clear statement in writing (letter or e-mail, for example) or by telephone. In this instance please contact me to arrange the return of any products ordered. The cancellation period begins after receipt of these instructions in writing or in another durable medium, but not before receipt of goods by the customer  In order to observe the cancelation period, you must give notice of revocation, or return the goods, within the revocation period. Please address notice of revocation to:

7 Steer Road


Tel.: +44 (0) 7920 755320
E-Mail: CustomerService@roydonsphotography.co.uk

You are responsible for covering the regular cost of return postage if the goods delivered are as ordered. Obligations to refund payments must be fulfilled within 30 days. This period commences for you when I am in receipt of the goods.

In the case of valid revocation, all considerations received by either party and, where applicable, any utilization (such as interest) shall be returned. If you are unable to return the goods provided in full or in part, or only in an impaired state, you may be required to provide compensation for the loss in value. This does not apply in case of goods provided if the deterioration of the goods is exclusively due to testing the goods, as could occur in a shop. You can avoid being held liable to provide compensation for lost value in case of orderly use of an item, by not using the item as if it were your own property and avoiding any actions that could impair the item’s value. Goods that can be returned as packages must be returned at our risk. Please ensure the work is packaged appropriately and that it is will protected. Ideally, use the original packaging in which the item was delivered, including all protective material.

Unavailable items

In the unlikely event that the material needed for the production and delivery of your order is not available I will try to contact you as soon as possible and, if possible, give an approximate delivery date.
