The boring, but important small print from Socked
1. What is this all about?
These boring terms are the legal requirements our solicitor made us add in they are to protect both you and us from doing anything stupid. The terms and conditions govern the processing and shipment of all sock subscriptions, placed by customers online from Socked(socked). Telephone
2. Contract execution
All offers made by socked are non-binding. A contract between the customer and socked becomes effective only after the customer has placed an order and socked has accepted it and of course once the customer has paid. The customer generates this order online by completing the order form provided by socked on its website. Socked signifies its acceptance of the order by delivering some or all of the products specified in it, the customer does the same by paying for some or all of the subscription.
4. Termination of subscription
All Subscriptions will auto renew unless either cancelled by the customer before the expiry or when a subscription expires (such as a gift subscription that lasts for one year).
Refunds will not be provided for part use of a subscription.
Deliveries are made from the socked warehouse. Any delivery periods or delivery dates specified by socked are not binding on it (i.e. if it snows and our socked delivery man can’t make it up your garden path please don’t fall out with us, we will get it delivered just may take a few more days). Articles ordered by subscription are delivered in several partial shipments. Partial shipments will be made at regular intervals during the contract period. If the customer refuses to accept deliveries, socked may, at its sole discretion, withdraw from the contract no refund will be given. We aim to deliver during the first week of each month, all orders that are placed before the 20th of each month will be processed at the start of the next month any orders placed after the 20th will start a month later
Order placed 19th of January – Start date 1st Feb
Order placed 21st of January – Start date 1st March
6. Transfer of ownership
Socks ordered remain the property of socked until payment of the full price specified in the current contract has been made by the customer.
The purchase price becomes due and payable as per the terms set out during checkout.
Annual single payment
Bi yearly payment
All payments will be collected on or around the 20th of each month.
Payment must be made by credit or debit card only.
Unless specified otherwise, all prices include shipping costs. This applies to shipments worldwide.
Socked reserves the right to raise the price of its subscriptions, if taxes or duties such as VAT, or its wage, equipment, third party or purchasing costs have increased (for example if China decide to buy all the cotton in the world and hold us all to ransom). In the unlikely event of socked applying a price increase which is more than 20% higher than the increase in the general cost of living during the relevant period, the customer has the right to terminate the contract within the 4 weeks following such price increase, we will of course try to only charge new customers the increased price and keep old customers ‘grandfathered’ on the previous pricing, but this may not be possible.
9. Unpaid accounts
If any balances due by the customer have not been paid, any outstanding shipments will be held back until proof of payment has been received, and they don’t get paid your subscription will be cancelled and you go can tell your friends that you have failed to become a gentleman and spend the rest of life living in horrid shame.
10. Returned items
For health and safety reasons socked will not accept returns for opened or used socks. Come on think about it, its just gross.
11. Data protection
Personal data relating to customers are collated only to the extent permitted by law, we wont share it or sell it. The customer authorises the post office to advise socked of his/her correct address if a shipment made by post could not be delivered to the address specified in an order.
