2.4 We will then send you an initial acknowledgement by email and once we have checked whether we are able to meet your Order, we will send you a confirmatory email, at which point your Order will become a Purchase and shall conclude the Contract between you and us.

3 Price and Payment
3.1 The price of the Subscription and/or Issues shall be that stipulated on the Website or as otherwise advised by us to you via an advertisement or when making a purchase by telephone or post. The price is inclusive of VAT and, with regard to Subscriptions, delivery charges also.
3.2 When making a purchase of Issues other than Subscriptions, you may have to pay a delivery charge. We will inform you of this during the ordering process and before the Contract between you and us is concluded.
3.3 Subject to Clause 3.4, payment must be made prior to your Order being accepted and a Contract being formed.

All card transactions are processed through a secure payment gateway. All credit/debit card Purchases are subject to validation checks and authorisation by the card issuer. If the issuer of your payment card refuses to or does not for any reason authorise payment to us for a particular purchase, we will not accept your Order.
4.1 Where you have purchased a Subscription, unless we agree otherwise with you, the first delivery may take up to six weeks to be delivered, with the next and subsequent issues being delivered at monthly intervals.

5 Cancellation and Returns
5.1 You may cancel a Contract for a Subscription, without cause, and receive a full refund of the price and any delivery charge paid by you, provided you notify us in writing, fax, or email of said cancellation within 14 working days from the day after you receive your first issue, (the “Cooling Off Period”) or, for online sales, 14 working days from the confirmatory email sent to you. In the case where the issue has been delivered to a third party on your behalf, the cancellation period shall apply from the day after the third party receives the Goods. All cancellation notices should be directed to the contact details set out in Clause 7. If you pay by Direct Debit you must also cancel the Direct Debit with the bank otherwise your bank may continue to make payments.
5.2 In the event that you serve a valid notice of cancellation in accordance with Clauses 5.1 we shall provide you with a full refund of the price plus delivery charges (if appropriate) within 14 days of receipt of the returned goods. It is your responsibility to return any Goods to us within twenty-one days of cancellation. Returned goods must clearly show the order number obtained from us on the package and sent to the address noted below in Clause 7. You will be responsible for the costs in returning the goods to us and should you fail to return the goods to us within the timeframe, we are entitled to deduct an amount not exceeding the direct costs of recovering the goods from you from the money we are obliged to refund you, unless you are returning the goods because they are defective or in any other circumstances you are entitled to reject the goods under law. On cancellation, the goods shall remain at your risk until returned to us and you are required to take reasonable care of the goods until that time. Where returned goods are found to be damaged due to your acts or omissions, you will be liable for the cost of remedying such damage or the replacement cost of the relevant goods.
5.3 Should you wish to cancel a recurring subscription before it renews, you must give us at least 7 days’ notice before the renewal date. For example, if you had taken out an annual recurring subscription on 15th January 2018, the renewal date would be 15th January 2019, and we would need to receive your notice, in writing, by 8th January 2019. If you pay by Direct Debit you must also cancel the Direct Debit with the bank otherwise your bank may continue to make payments. Please note the start date of your subscription is the date your order was placed, not the date that the first payment was taken. The contact details to cancel are in Section 7, below.
5.4 Should you wish to cancel a trial subscription before upgrades to a full subscription, you must give us at least 7 days’ notice before the upgrade date. For example, if you had taken out a four month trial subscription on 15th January 2018, the renewal date would be 15th May 2019, and we would need to receive your notice, in writing, by 8th January 2019. If you pay by Direct Debit you must also cancel the Direct Debit with the bank otherwise your bank may continue to make payments. Please note the start date of your subscription is the date your order was placed, not the date that the first payment was taken. The contact details to cancel are in Section 7, below.
6.1 If you notify Storytime of any valid claim in respect of any issue of Storytime which is based on any defect in the quality or condition of such issue, Storytime shall at your option either replace the relevant issue or product free of charge or refund the issue.
6.2 Should Storytime be unable to supply you with issues of Storytime due to circumstances beyond its control, Storytime will notify you of such circumstances and if those circumstances continue for a period of 3 months either you or Storytime may terminate the order for the Issue or (as appropriate) the Subscription immediately.
