Ordering Products from us
2.1 When placing an order on our Website, please read and check the details carefully before submitting it. You have the right to review and amend your details prior to concluding the contract. Although we may be able to amend your order details after your order has been made, we are under no obligation to do so.
2.2. When the checkout process has been completed and the order is placed, you will receive an email acknowledgement that your order has been received. This acknowledgement does not amount to our acceptance of your offer to buy.
2.3 We may contact you to say that we do not accept your offer. This will generally be for reasons which include, but are not limited to, the following.
(i) the Products are unavailable;
(ii) we cannot authorise your payment, for fraud/security reasons or otherwise;
(iii) you are not allowed to buy the Products from us;
(iv) we are not allowed to sell the Products to you;
(v) you have ordered too many Products;
(vi) there has been a mistake on the pricing or description of the Products (where permissible under applicable law)
2.3 We reserve the right to refuse to sell any Product to any person. In the unlikely event that we do this, we will notify you within a reasonable period and not charge you for the Product. We will not refuse to sell a Product to an individual without a good reason.
2.3 We require certain information from you so that we can supply Products to you, including without limitation, your address, email address and phone number. If you supply incomplete or incorrect information or do not supply the necessary information within a reasonable time of us asking for it, we may end the contract. We will not be responsible for supplying the Products late if this is caused by you giving us incomplete or incorrect information or failing to provide the necessary information within a reasonable time of us requesting it.
2.4 A legally binding contract will only exist between the Parties where we have received payment in full and you have received a shipping confirmation email. At this point, the contract is active and we will make arrangements to dispatch the Products to your stipulated delivery address, provided your order clears our fraud check process. We will also provide you with an order number. It will help us if you can tell us your order number whenever you contact us about your order.
3.1 We accept payment via credit cards and debit cards via Paypal. We do not accept cash payments.
3.2 We will take all reasonable steps to ensure all the information provided by you during payment is secure by using an encrypted secure payment mechanism. However, in the absence of negligence on our part, we will not be liable for any loss that you may incur in the unlikely event that a third party gains unauthorised access to any information you provide to us.
3.3 Where you have paid by credit or debit card, the card will be charged at the time your payment is approved by us. However, all payments by credit card or debit card must subsequently be authorised by the relevant card issuer. There will be no surcharge where you pay by credit or debit card.
3.4 If you have paid for Products which we cannot supply we will refund you as soon as possible and in any event within 14 days of receipt of payment.

If the Products correct price at your order date is higher than the price stated to you, we will contact you for your instructions before we accept your order. If we accept and process your order where a pricing error is obvious and unmistakeable and could reasonably have been recognised by you as a mispricing, we may end the contract, refund you any sums paid and require the return of the Products.
Discount Codes and Promotions
4.1 Any discount code offered by us in relation to our products is offered on the basis of goodwill and we reserve the right to refuse to apply any discount code at our discretion.
4.2 Without prejudice to clause 4.1, a discount code will not be applied in circumstances which include, but are not limited to, the following.
4.2.1 Where a discount has already been applied to the purchase order (including in the case of a Product bundle). For the avoidance of doubt, we will not apply more than one discount per order (a Product bundle constituting one discount).

5.5 In the unlikely event that something outside of our control affects the estimated date of delivery, we will notify you of the revised estimated date for delivery of the Products as soon as possible. We will take all reasonable steps to minimise the impact of such delay and provided we do this, we will not be liable for delays caused by events which are outside our control. Nothing in this clause affects your legal rights to cancel the contract.
5.5 We reserve the right to use a courier of our choice. Deliveries are processed within 24h working hours and despatched with a courier of our choice with a 48h service.
5.6 Delivery will be effective from the time that the products are delivered to the address provided by you in the ordering process.
5.7 The person[s] executing delivery will not ask the recipient of the delivery for any form of ID and will not make any other attempt to verify that the recipient is you or a person authorised by you to accept delivery of the Products. For this reason, we advise that you are present during the time of delivery to ensure that you receive the Product directly.
5.8 Unless otherwise mutually agreed, if we cannot deliver your Products within 14 days of the date you requested, we will notify you by email; cancel your order and give you a full refund.

7.1 As a statutory minimum you have the right to cancel any contract for sale with us and return any Products within 14 days of delivery of those Products without giving any reason.
7.2 Should you wish to return one of our products. The Product must remain ‘as delivered’ and, where possible, in its original packaging. In accordance with Section 28(3)(a) of the Consumer Contracts (Information, Cancellation and Additional Charges) Regulations 2013, we consider that these products are not suitable for return where they have been used on an animal due to hygiene reasons and, or when they show any signs of wear. As such, we reserve the right to refuse any collar which cannot be resold.
7.3 Alternatively, we may, in accordance with Section 34(9) of the Consumer Contract (Information, Cancellation and Additional Charges) Regulations 2013, deduct any value lost as a result of your unreasonable handling the Product (i.e. any use beyond what is necessary to establish their nature, characteristics and functioning). In the event that we refund you the price paid before we are able to inspect the goods and later discover you have handled them in an unacceptable way, we will require you to pay an appropriate amount for the value lost.
7.4 To exercise your right to cancel, you must clearly notify us of your intention to cancel within 14 days of the date of delivery by email, phone or in writing; or by completing and returning the model cancellation form set out at the end of these terms. Such a notice should include: your name; address; order number; date of order; date that your product was received.
7.5 Following a notice of your intention to cancel, a delivery address will be provided and the Product must be sent back to us not longer than 7 days after the initial 14 days. Failure to arrange delivery may, save any exceptional circumstances (which must be communicated to us, and acceptance of same being subject to our discretion), invalidate your right to cancel the contract.
7.6 Any return of petTracer Products; whether pursuant to your statutory rights; may only be made in the territory in which the Products were delivered and to the address given ad per 7.5.
7.7 Where you return a product which is not in a returnable condition in line with clause 7.2, we will, upon your request, send that Product back to you, the expense for such return will be borne by you.
