Terms and Conditions
By using our website, you agree to be bound by Rainpal’s Terms & Conditions, as stated below.
Contract for the Supply of Products or Services
An acceptance email is automatically sent by Rainpal to you confirming that your order has been accepted and payment has been successfully made. This confirmation e-mail amounts to an acceptance by Rainpal of your offer to buy goods or services from Rainpal and this acceptance is effective regardless of whether or not you receive the e-mail.
Rainpal reserves the right to withdraw from a prospective contract at any time prior to or after acceptance. This also applies after a confirmation email has been sent in the case of any error or inaccuracy in respect of the goods or services, any description applied to the goods or services, the availability of the goods or services, or the order itself. Under these circumstances Rainpal will notify you as soon as possible and the option to wait for stock, choose an alternative or a full refund will be offered. Rainpal can refuse to accept an order, refund an order or cancel an order at any time without notice.
Rainpal will accept the cancellation of an order, in writing (email or letter) or on the return of the goods but a return authorisation number must be obtained from Rainpal first.
Price and availability information is subject to change without notice. Credit cards are debited before items are shipped or before services are activated by Rainpal.
When a customer 'Checks Out' as a guest, a simple account is created and an email is sent with a password. This enables our customer to login and track their order, contact us and raise returns notes etc.
www.rainpal.co.uk is an Online business only, your item cannot be returned to us in person. We do not have a Trade/Customer counter.
Order Information : Card Security Checks
Rainpal use security processes to process our Card Payments and use very stringent security checks to protect us and our customers from card fraud. On rare occasions an order is flagged as a 'Risk' by our systems and Rainpal must investigate further. This may be due to a number of reasons, but mainly it is because the card used is from a different country to the delivery address or the delivery address given is not known to our system or your bank. We will in these cases contact you and ask for additional information to be supplied - normally proof of address for the card used and proof that the card owner works at the delivery address. To avoid any problems if you are paying from abroad, we recommend you click PayPal. Please do not be offended if we contact you for further information!
Paying for your product - Exchange Rates
If paying in a Currency other than GBP (£), there may be an exchange rate difference applied by your Bank or PayPal, after you have placed the order our FX rates are for customer’s convenience only. This is NOT applied by Rainpal and may be more than the amount shown on our website. Rainpal is NOT responsible for this difference. The Currency Rates shown on our website are automatically checked and updated regularly based on the latest Exchange Rates, but can of course be higher or lower.
