Images and/or descriptions of packaging are for illustrative purposes only, the actual packaging of Goods may vary.
Please note that this does not exclude our responsibility for mistakes due to negligence on our part and refers only to minor variations of the correct Goods, not to different Goods altogether. Please refer to here if you receive Goods that are not as described.
Where appropriate, you may be required to select the required colour and number of the Goods that you are purchasing.
We cannot guarantee that Goods will always be available.
Minor changes may, from time to time, be made to certain Goods between your Order being placed and us processing that Order and dispatching the Goods, for example, to reflect changes in relevant laws and regulatory requirements, or to address particular technical or security issues.

Orders – How Contracts Are Formed
The Site will guide you through the ordering process. Before submitting your Order you will be given the opportunity to review your Order and amend it. Please ensure that you have checked your Order carefully before submitting it.
If, during the order process, you provide us with incorrect or incomplete information, please contact us as soon as possible.

If you do not give us the accurate or complete information within a reasonable time of our request, we will cancel your Order and treat the Contract as being at an end. If we incur any costs as a result of your incorrect or incomplete information, we may pass those costs on to you.
No part of the Site constitutes a contractual offer capable of acceptance. Your Order constitutes a contractual offer that we may, at our sole discretion, accept. Our acknowledgement of receipt of your Order does not mean that we have accepted it. Our acceptance of your order takes place on the dispatch to you of the products ordered unless we notify you that we do not accept your order. Only once we have dispatched the goods to you will there be a legally binding Contract between us and you.
Order despatch Confirmations shall contain the following information:
your Order Number;

These restrictions may include orders placed by or under the same customer account, the same credit card, and/or orders that use the same billing and/or shipping address. If we make a change to or cancel an order, we may attempt to notify you by contacting the e-mail and/or billing address/phone number provided at the time the order was made.
In the unlikely event that we do not accept or cannot fulfil your Order for any reason no payment will be taken under normal circumstances. If we have taken payment any such sums will be refunded to you as soon as possible and in any event within 7 working days.
Any refunds due will be made using the same payment method that you used when ordering the Goods.
Payment for Goods and related delivery charges must always be made in advance and you will be prompted to pay during the order process.

Crowdfunding Refunds & Returns Policy
All crowd funding is currently on the Indiegogo platform. If you are an Indiegogo eto Backer (“Backer”) and change your mind about your contribution before the dispatch of your perk, we offer a refund minus the 11% already taken by Indiegogo. If the refund is more than 10 days after the initial contribution it will be refunded via PayPal (we do not have access to the card details you used to make the contribution). We do not offer refunds after dispatch.
If you have received your eto and have decided that you no longer want it it is not our policy to offer refunds or returns on items received on Kickstarter or Indiegogo after the dispatch of products unless as set out in 26.3 and 27 below.
- Generally, supporting a campaign on Kickstarter/ Indiegogo and getting a reward/pledge is a different process than buying a product directly.
- The support we get from backers is what enables us to run and grow our business, gather customer feedback, design new products and improve existing ones. In the Kickstarter community, the items that you receive after making a pledge are referred to as “rewards” because they are not purchases in the traditional sense;
- From the Kickstarter FAQ "Kickstarter is not a store. When you back a project, you’re helping to create something new — not ordering something that already exists."
- Indiegogo states “Although contributing to a campaign is not the same as purchasing a product, when you support a crowdfunding project, you help bring ideas to life!”
- We appreciate your understanding of our policy and continued support. Please don’t hesitate to contact email@example.com us if you have any questions.
We offer a time limited right to EU backers, only, to change their minds, which expires 14 days after receipt of your eto. Please see below.
EU Crowdfunding Backer Returns Policy
If you are a Backer in the European Union, you have a legal right to a 14 day “cooling-off” period within which you can return your eto for any reason. This period begins once your eto is delivered by our carrier.
If you wish to exercise your right to cancel, you must inform us of your decision within 14 days. You may do so in any way you wish, as long as it is clearly stated. Cancellation by email is effective from the date on which you send us your message. Please note that the cooling-off period lasts for 14 whole calendar days. If, for example, you send us an email or letter by 23:59:59 on the final day of the cooling-off period, your cancellation will be valid and accepted.
- Please use the following details:
- Email: firstname.lastname@example.org;
- With the heading “Return” and providing us with your name, address, email address, telephone number, and Order Number.

- Refunds will be issued to you within 14 calendar days of the day on which we receive the eto back
Refunds may be subject to deductions in the following circumstances:
- Refunds may be reduced for any diminished value in the eto resulting from your excessive handling of them (e.g. no more than would be permitted in a shop). Please note that if we issue a refund before we have received the eto and have had a chance to inspect them, we may subsequently charge you an appropriate sum if we find that the eto has been handled excessively.
If a refund is issued, you will receive a full refund of any delivery charges you paid when backing us/ contributing.
Refunds will be made using Paypal – we do not have access to the card details you used when backing us/contributing.
- Any statutory rights that Backers may have are not affected by this Crowdfunding Backer Returns Policy.
