What are our terms and conditions of sale?
As a quality UK manufacturer and internet based business, we comply with all UK Trading Standards and the Distance Selling Regulations 2000 to ensure that, in addition to your statutory rights, you are protected as a consumer. Our aim is always that, as our customer, you are totally happy with our product and service and detailed below is the support and help we provide as well as some explanations of the key regulations we comply with.
What do the Distance Selling Regulations mean for you as our customer?
The key features of the regulations are:
- The consumer must be given clear information about the goods or services offered before you buy
- After making a purchase using our secure online payment system, the consumer must be given written confirmation. This is done for you with our automated order confirmation which is sent to you by email.
- The consumer has a cooling off period of 7 working days. (At the PhotonStar LED Ltd, we try and take quality photographs of all our goods to let you see as accurately as possible what you are purchasing. However, we appreciate that we are “on line” as opposed to a high street retail outlet. We sincerely hope you are delighted with our products when they arrive and that they live up to your expectations. However, should you wish to return them for any reason within the 7 day period, please email us (cancellations cannot be accepted by phone) and provided that they are returned unused and undamaged, we will refund your money in full within 30 working days (working days exclude weekends and public holidays). This refund will normally mean re-crediting your credit card if that was the method of payment used. Please note that if you paid a separate charge for delivery, we will also refund this charge to you.
- The only exception to the 7 day cooling off period is if we have produced a custom design or unusual colour personalised especially to your requirements.
How do I pay for my goods?
Our prices are in UK £GBP sterling. We accept credit cards and UK Debit Cards. We also accept personal cheques in UK £sterling with cheque guarantee card numbers on the reverse. With personal cheques, please note that we do not despatch goods until the cheque has cleared. Cheques should be made payable to: PhotonStar LED Ltd
Do I pay VAT ?
VAT will be added to all UK mainland purchases at the current rate of 15%. Purchases made from within the European Union will be exempt from VAT if a valid VAT deferment number is entered when requested at step 1 of the on line ordering process.
What Credit and Debit Cards can we accept?
We can accept Visa, Maestro, Mastercard, Delta and Solo. Unfortunately, we are currently unable to accept American Express or Discover.
We offer you the option of either Paypal or Protx – either of which you can pay by credit card.
Is Our On Line Credit Card Payment System “PROTX” secure?
Yes, PROTX our payment processor company is approved by the major UK banks and is owned by the Lloyds TSB group. All account information is transacted on an industry standard secure (128 bit SSL) web page.
The Protx payment system uses a combination of established and innovative techniques to ensure the security and integrity of all sensitive data. Our internet facing web servers are certified by Verisign, this ensures that no third parties can impersonate Protx to obtain secure information.
We also use the Lloyds TSB cardnet merchant facility.
How do I reassure myself that the online payment system is secure?
The transfer of the less sensitive transaction details from the PhotonStar LED Ltd to Protx is encrypted and digitally-signed. This ensures that the information passed is secure and tamper-proof. Any communication between our customers and Protx is encrypted to the maximum strength supported by the customer’s browser. The customer is also protected from fraudulent use of their card in a “card not present” environment, by their card issuer. All data stored on Protx systems is held on encrypted and highly secured databases. Protx are regularly audited by Visa and MasterCard to ensure that their systems conform to the latest security standards.
When you reach the payment transaction stage, your browser will be re-directed to the Protx Secure Servers. Look out for the “padlock” symbol usually at the bottom right hand corner of your screen. Note that the padlock only applies at the point of the credit card data transaction. Also the browser web address should change from http:// to https://.
