4.1 Order Acceptance
4.1.1 All orders are subject to acceptance in accordance with Our Order Acceptance Policy.
If You have provided Us with a valid email address, then after You have ordered We will send You an order acknowledgement email detailing the Products You have ordered. This does not mean that Your order has been accepted. Our acceptance of Your order will take place upon dispatch of the Product(s) ordered. On dispatch of Your order we will send You a dispatch confirmation email, at which point the contract between Us and You will be formed.
We may be unable to supply You with a Product and not accept an order because:
- The Product You ordered is unavailable;
- We are unable to obtain authorisation for payment or there is a problem receiving Your payment;
- We have identified a pricing or Product description error;
- You fail to meet the eligibility to order criteria as set out in the Conditions.
If there are any problems with Your order, You will be contacted by Our Customer Services Team as soon as possible.
We reserve the right to reject any offer to purchase by You at any time.
If you have already paid for the Products we will refund you the full amount including any delivery costs charged as soon as possible.
4.1.2 All Products shown on the Website are subject to availability.
4.2 Order cancellation, amendment and returns
4.2.1 If You order from Us You have the right to cancel Your order at any point up to the end of fourteen calendar days after the day on which You receive the Goods. We cannot accept cancellations after this period. To cancel, you just need to let us know that you have decided to do so. You can complete the cancellation form on the Website, in which case we will email You to confirm We have received Your cancellation. Alternatively You may use a copy of the cancellation form which is in the Schedule to these Conditions.
You can also e-mail Us at firstname.lastname@example.org or contact our Customer Services on +44 (0)207 201 8088 or post to
Harvey Nichols Customer Services
30-34 St. Andrew Square
If you are e-mailing Us or writing to Us please include details of Your order to help Us to identify it. If You send Us Your cancellation notice by e-mail or by post, then Your cancellation is effective from the date You send Us the e-mail or post the letter to Us.
Please note that orders are normally processed swiftly, so it is in both our interests if You can get in touch with Us promptly, otherwise We may have already packaged Your order and made arrangements for it to be sent to You. In these circumstances, We may not be able to prevent the delivery of Your order.
We cannot accept cancellations or returns for certain Goods.
Please see our Returns Policy for further details on cancellation and returns.
4.2.2 If You cancel Your contract We will:
(a) where the Goods have not yet been dispatched, seek to prevent dispatch if possible (in which event Your purchasing card will not be charged); or
(b) refund You the price You paid for the Goods. Please note We are permitted by law to reduce Your refund to reflect any reduction in the value of the Goods, if this has been caused by your handling them in a way which would not be permitted in a shop. See our Returns Page. If 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, You must pay Us an appropriate amount;
(c) refund any delivery costs You have paid, although, as permitted by law, the maximum refund will be the costs of delivery by the least expensive delivery method We offer (provided that this is a common and generally acceptable method). For example, if we offer delivery of a Product within 2-5 days at one cost but you choose to have the Goods delivered within 24 hours at a higher cost, then we will only refund what you would have paid for the cheaper delivery option.
(d) make any refunds due to You as soon as possible and in any event within the deadlines indicated below:
(i) if You have received the Goods and we have not offered to collect them from You: 14 days after the day on which We receive the Goods back from You or, if earlier, the day on which You provide Us with evidence that You have sent the Goods back to Us. For information about how to return Goods to Us, see clause 4.2.5;
(ii) if You have not received the Goods or You have received them and We have offered to collect them from You: 14 days after You inform Us of Your decision to cancel the contract.
4.2.3 If You have returned the Goods to us under this clause 4 because they are faulty or mis-described, we will either refund the price of the Goods in full together with any applicable delivery charges or alternatively provide replacement Goods, and in each case reimburse You any reasonable costs You incur in returning the faulty or mis-described item to Us.
4.2.4 We will refund You on the credit card or debit card used by You to pay.
4.2.5 If Goods have been delivered to You before You decide to cancel your Contract:
(a) then you must return it to us without undue delay and in any event not later than 14 days after the day on which you let us know that you wish to cancel the Contract. You can either send it back, return it to us in-store or have a prearranged collection by our authorised carrier. Please see our Returns Page for our returns address and how to arrange a return. If our customer services have offered to collect the Goods from you, we will collect the Products from the address to which they were delivered. We will contact you to arrange a suitable time for collection;
(b) unless the Goods are faulty or not as described (see clause 4.3.3), You will be responsible for the cost of returning the Goods to Us. If the Goods cannot be returned by post, We estimate that if You use the carrier which delivered the Goods to You, these costs should not exceed the sums We charged You for delivery. If We have offered to collect the Goods from You, We will charge You the direct cost to Us of collection.
4.2.6 Summary of your legal rights. We are under a legal duty to supply products that are in conformity with this contract. See the box below for a summary of your key legal rights in relation to the product. Nothing in these terms will affect your legal rights.
Summary of your key legal rights
This is a summary of your key legal rights. These are subject to certain exceptions. For detailed information please visit the Citizens Advice website www.adviceguide.org.uk or call 03454 04 05 06.
If your product is goods, for example [furniture or a laptop], the Consumer Rights Act 2015 says goods must be as described, fit for purpose and of satisfactory quality. During the expected life of your product your legal rights entitle you to the following:
- up to 30 days: if your item is faulty, then you can get a refund.
- up to six months: if your faulty item can't be repaired or replaced, then you're entitled to a full refund, in most cases.
- up to six years: if the item can be expected to last up to six years you may be entitled to a repair or replacement, or, if that doesn't work, some of your money back.
If your product is digital content, for example [a mobile phone app or a subscription to a music streaming service], the Consumer Rights Act 2015 says digital content must be as described, fit for purpose and of satisfactory quality:
- if your digital content is faulty, you're entitled to a repair or a replacement.
- if the fault can't be fixed within a reasonable time, or without causing you significant inconvenience, you can get some or all of your money back.
- if you can show the fault has damaged your device and we haven't used reasonable care and skill, you may be entitled to a repair or compensation.
If your product is services, for example [a support contract for a laptop or tickets to a concert], the Consumer Rights Act 2015 says:
- you can ask us to repeat or fix a service if it's not carried out with reasonable care and skill, or get some money back if we can't fix it.
- if you haven't agreed a price upfront, what you're asked to pay must be reasonable.
- if you haven't agreed a time upfront, it must be carried out within a reasonable time.
4.2.7 If you live in the EU, you have the right to cancel your order, within 14 days of receiving the goods, under Consumer Contract Regulations 2013 (CCRs), which govern all internet and mail-order shopping.

If we discover an error in the price of the Products You have ordered we will contact You to inform You of this error and we will give You the option of continuing to purchase the Product at the correct price or cancelling your order. We will not process Your order until we have Your instructions. If We are unable to contact You using the contact details You provided during the order process, we will treat the order as cancelled and notify You in writing. Please note that if the pricing error is obvious and unmistakeable and could have reasonably been recognised by You as a mispricing, we do not have to provide the Products to You at the incorrect (lower) price.

4.3.6 Please be aware that We do not have the facility to deduct VAT when charging for goods.
