- Account Details and Customer Privacy
By using the Website, you agree to keep your password and account details confidential, and to take all reasonable measures to prevent unauthorised access to your account. You are responsible for all actions that occur in relation to your account. If you forget your password we will reset it upon your request and send it to the email address you registered with.
Little Soap Company collects the information provided by the Purchaser at the time of ordering and uses this information lawfully and in accordance with the Data Protection Act 1998. Information is collected by Little Soap Company to process the Purchaser’s order and also to provide the highest level of customer service possible.
Little Soap Company does not sell or pass customer’s e-mail addresses or other details to other parties nor do we bombard our customers with endless e-mails and leaflets. If you order from us, we may contact you about your order and we may, on occasion, e-mail or write to you with information about our products and special offers. If you would prefer not to receive any promotional material at all from us, please let us know.
Prices for Goods include VAT where applicable as well as standard packaging. The price does not include the delivery of the order to the Purchaser. This is an additional cost, unless otherwise stated. We will take all reasonable care to ensure that all details, descriptions and prices of products appearing on the Website are correct at the time when the relevant information was entered onto the system. Although we aim to keep the Website as up to date as possible, the information including product descriptions appearing on this Website at a particular time may not always reflect the position exactly at the moment you place an order.
- Secure Ordering and Payment
We put orders from our website (and credit card orders by other means) through Swipe and Paypal, both leading Internet payment services. After making an order on our site, you will be asked to enter your credit card details… this information is then protected in transit over the Internet by SSL encryption. You may see a completed padlock or key in your browser when you are on the payment page. Long obsolete web browsers (typically version 3 or before) may not make a secure connection or may display an unnecessary security warning because their technology or internal security certificates are out of date.
Payment can be made by any major credit card and will be debited and cleared from your account before the dispatch of your goods. All credit/debit cardholders are subject to validation checks and authorisation by the card issuer. If the issuer of your payment card refuses to, or subsequently refuses to, or does not, for any reason, authorise payment to us, we will not be liable for any delay or non-delivery. You confirm that the credit or debit card that is being used is yours.
We will retain the legal ownership of the goods until full payment has been made by you and such payment has been received by us. Legal ownership of the goods will immediately revert to us if we refund any such payment to you.
Goods will only be despatched once payment has been received in full.
We will make every effort to despatch orders within 5 working days of receipt – saying that,orders are usually sent out same day using second class Royal Mail unless discussed and shipped within 24hours of order, but in some cases such as over weekends and bank holidays you order will be shipped next business day. The standard delivery prices listed on the website include a 2-7 day delivery service within the UK mainland. Deliveries outside the UK mainland will be between 7-14 days, depending upon the destination. Deliveries outside of the UK Mainland will incur a surplus delivery cost – please email us for a quote. All international orders will be treated separately. We accept orders and ship to UK and European addresses only. The Royal Mail will attempt delivery and if the recipient is not at home a card will be left with written instructions asking them to contact their local post office to arrange collection. It is then the recipient’s responsibility to contact the Royal Mail and arrange for collection. It is the Purchasers responsibility to ensure that a recipient or representative is present to sign for the delivery. If the delivery is returned to The Little Soap Company, re-delivery will not be possible and the order will be cancelled and Purchaser refunded in full.
The Little Soap Company does not accept any liability whatsoever for delayed delivery caused by any third party. As soon as you have received the goods, you will assume all risk in the goods. Upon delivery of the goods to you, we will also provide you with sufficient details to enable you to:
- a) exercise your right of cancellation; and b) address any intended cancellation or complaints to the correct place of business.
If you have not received the entire order as detailed in the order confirmation email sent to you when an order is received, please contact The Little Soap Company.
- Product and Product Variations
Please bear in mind that our handmade range of products are genuinely hand-made in small volumes so you may encounter some variation in colour, texture, scent or wrapping between batches or orders and as they are pictured on this site or in any other marketing materials. If you do have any problems or queries, please let us know.
We attempt to be as accurate as possible when describing products on the website; however, to the extent permitted by applicable law, we do not warrant that product descriptions, on the Website are accurate, complete, reliable, current, or error-free.
Any products and services, and any samples thereof, we may provide to you are for personal use only. You may not sell or re-sell any of the products or services, and any samples thereof, you receive from us.
Because we are still a little business in all senses of the word, we are sadly unable to supply goods on approval nor are we able to supply free samples of our soaps by post. If you’d like to try our soaps, we recommend that your order just one full-size bar from this website. This costs less than £9 delivered in the UK and we’re so confident that you will enjoy it. If you are looking to purchase wholesale, of course we will take that initial cost off your first order.
All content available on the Website, including, but not limited to, text, graphics, logos, button icons, images, data compilations, and software, and the compilation thereof (the “Content”) is the property of The Little Soap Company, our affiliates, our partners or our licensors, and is protected by UK and international copyright laws. Nothing may not reproduced in whole or part by electronic means or in print without the prior written permission of the company.
