- General terms & conditions
1.1 These terms apply to goods ordered via the internet. Internet promotions and/or prices relate to internet transactions only and may differ from those available in store. Likewise, temporary or local special offers in store do not apply to internet prices unless expressly specified.
1.2 Please note that Debenhams Retail (Ireland) Limited facilitates the sale of certain products on Debenhams.ie as agent for various retailers. By making an order on this site you enter into a contract with the relevant retailer itself rather than with us. A full list of such retailers can be found by following this link.
2. Order process
2.1 Our display of products on our website is an invitation and not an offer to sell those goods to you.
2.2 An offer is made when you place the order for your products. We will not have made a contract with you unless and until we accept your offer (see point 2.5 below).
2.3 We take payment from your card, when we process your order and have checked your card details. Goods are subject to availability. If we are unable to supply the goods, we will inform you of this as soon as possible. A full refund will be given if you have already paid for the goods.
2.4 If you enter a correct e-mail address we will send you an order acknowledgement e-mail and order update e-mail(s). These are not order confirmation or order acceptance from us.
2.5 Unless we have notified you that we do not accept your order or you have cancelled it, order acceptance and the creation of the contract between you and us (or the relevant retailer in relation to certain sales which are facilitated by us) will take place at the point the goods you have ordered are dispatched from our warehouse to be delivered to the address you have given us. It does not take place until that stage, even though we may have debited your card (see 2.3 above) or we have sent acknowledging e-mails (see 2.4 above).
2.6 Very occasionally an error may occur resulting in the goods described on our website not being the goods actually available for sale. If this occurs your order will not be or have been accepted. We may ask you whether you wish to purchase other goods we may have available or the goods which may have been dispatched to you in error. If so your order will be amended. Otherwise, we will treat any order as cancelled and any incorrect goods dispatched will be collected for full refund.
2.7 The contract will be formed at the place of dispatch of the goods.
2.8 All orders that you place on this website will be subject to acceptance in accordance with clause 2.5 of these terms and conditions.
2.9 We do not file details of your order for you to access please print out these terms and conditions and the order acknowledgement for your own record.
3.1 Payment may be made by the methods indicated on our website. If paying by giftcard, where your giftcard balance is more than the amount of your order, we will deduct the total from your giftcard, and leave any remaining balance on the giftcard.
3.2 You will be charged the current price for buying goods from our website at the date you place your order. All prices are displayed on our website and are inclusive of VAT. We reserve the right to amend prices if there is a change in the rate of VAT (where applicable). All total prices for goods and services at the checkout represent the total price payable by the customer for those items, regardless of the address for delivery. For deliveries to the EU, this price includes VAT (or VAT equivalent) at the current rate. Although this price is the same for deliveries outside the EU, where VAT (or VAT equivalent) may not be applicable, customers are not entitled to any discount or refund to account for the differences in tax treatment and will pay the same price for the item as a customer placing an order for delivery to the EU. Other components of the total price at the checkout, including delivery charge, may vary for each customer.
3.3 A delivery charge will be applied at checkout, please view our delivery charges.
3.4 We do our best to make sure that prices are correctly shown but very occasionally an error may occur. If this should happen, we will correct the price and ask you to confirm whether you still wish to purchase the goods at the correct price. If we are unable to contact you, we will treat the order as cancelled. We will not accept an order if there is a pricing error.
4.1 We deliver to any Republic of Ireland address, please view our delivery information for further information.
4.2 Where products are delivered to your home directly by the manufacturer, the manufacturer will call you to discuss a delivery date. The description of an item on our website will indicate whether the delivery is made to your home directly by the manufacturer. Deliveries of these products will generally take a minimum of 14 working days. Delivery of larger products is made between Monday to Friday during normal working hours.
4.3 Orders may generally require a signature to acknowledge delivery. The signature of the person accepting delivery at the delivery address will be proof that delivery has been received by you or the person, to whom the order is addressed. If no one is available to accept the delivery you will receive a card to advise that a delivery has been attempted and that the product(s) have [either been left with a neighbour or] returned to the warehouse.
4.4 For any orders delivered to freight forwarding companies, Hotels, B&Bs, storage and relocation companies nominated by you as accepting delivery on your behalf, we shall have no liability to you in respect of any product which is damaged following acceptance of the delivery by these locations on your behalf. These goods are at your risk on and after delivery to these locations and/or carriers.
5.1 If, for any reason, you wish to do so you have the right to cancel any order you have placed (other than in respect of goods made to your specification, clearly personalised or unsealed audio or video recording or computer software). You may cancel an order at any point from placing the order up until fourteen (14) calendar days from the day after the delivery of the product(s) to you.
