By placing an order with us you will be deemed to have read, understood and agreed to these Terms and Conditions. If you are unhappy with any aspect of these terms, then you should contact one of our customer service advisors before placing an order with us either by telephone on 0203 179 9777, by email at: email@example.com or by post using the following address:

By placing an order via this website you are making an offer to Saltwater to purchase the goods detailed in your order upon the terms described in your order.
Once you have placed an order we will send you a confirmation that your order has been received but this is not a confirmation that your offer to purchase the goods has been accepted. A contract between you and Saltwater for the sale of our products will only exist once an order has been accepted, processed and despatched to you.
Your credit/debit card will be authorised when your order is placed and processed but you will not be charged for the value of the goods until the point that they are despatched to you. This does not affect your statutory rights.
Prices and availability of goods are subject to change without notice. A delivery charge will be added to your order value where appropriate, please see the delivery times and charges.
YOUR RIGHT TO CANCEL
You may normally cancel your order (once accepted by us) for any reason up to the point of despatch. If you do cancel the contract within this time any payments made by you will be refunded in full within 30 days.
In accordance with 'The Consumer Protection (Distance Selling) Regulations 2000', you may also cancel your goods within a seven day cooling-off period, which begins the day after our goods are received. For this, you must inform Saltwater in writing - by letter, fax or email - of your decision to cancel your order. You will need to pay to return the goods.
If you are not entirely delighted with the products that you have chosen you may return them to us within 28 days of receipt (14 days for sale items). We will be more than happy to offer you an exchange or, if you wish, a refund provided that the products are returned complete, in perfect condition, unused, unwashed and with the original packaging.
Please note all earrings are non-refundable due to hygiene reasons.
For all returns, except where the item is faulty, you will be required to arrange and pay for the return of the products to us. We will only refund the costs of postage where the item returned is faulty or you have been sent the wrong item.
We will only refund the costs of delivery postage where
· The item returned is faulty;
· You have been sent the wrong item or
· You cancel your goods during the seven day cooling-off period. (Please refer to the above paragraph on 'Your Right To Cancel')
