- you are buying the goods as a consumer and not for resale.
After placing an order, you will receive an e-mail from us acknowledging that we have received your order. Please note that this does not mean that your order has been accepted. Your order constitutes an offer to us to buy the goods. All orders are subject to acceptance by us and product availability, and we will confirm such acceptance to you by sending you an e-mail that confirms that the Goods have been dispatched (Dispatch Confirmation). The contract between us (Contract) will only be formed when we send you the Dispatch Confirmation.
The Contract will relate only to those Goods whose dispatch we have confirmed in the Dispatch Confirmation. We will not be obliged to supply any other Goods which may have been part of your order until the dispatch of such Goods has been confirmed in a separate Dispatch Confirmation.
Empire Menswear is entitled to refuse any order placed by you without being required to give any reason to you. We will refuse any order which we reasonably suspect to be fraudulent or illegal.
You may cancel a Contract at any time within seven (7) working days, beginning on the day after you received the Goods. To cancel a Contract, you must inform us in writing (including email) within those seven (7) working days and return the Goods to us within ten (10) days of delivery.
You must also return the Goods to us as soon as reasonably practicable, and at your own cost. On receipt of the Goods we will refund to you the price paid for the Goods in accordance with our refunds policy (set out in clause 7 below).
- While in your possession, you must take reasonable care of the Goods you intend to return to us. In particular:
- you must not wear or use any Goods that you intend to return to us except to try them on to see if they fit; and
- all Goods must be returned to us in the original packaging with all labels and barcodes attached and with any free or promotional items which originally accompanied them.
If you fail to comply with this obligation, we may have a right of action against you for compensation.
The provisions within clause “COMSUMER RIGHTS” do not affect your other rights under law as a consumer.
Any times or dates stated on our site for delivery are estimates only. We make all reasonable effort to deliver goods within the times specified, but we do not accept liability for any failure to deliver within that time. Once your order has been received you must check your goods and notify us within 2 working days of any discrepancy from your order or damage to the goods.

If the Goods you ordered are not received within 3 working days of the date on which delivery was estimated to occur then you should notify us by email with your order number. We will note that the order has been delivered late and will contact the courier if appropriate. If the Products were being sent by Royal Mail and you have not received them after 15 working days (i.e. 3 weeks) then you must contact your local Royal Mail Sorting Office to report that the Products have not been received before contacting us. You will then be required to complete a Royal Mail P91 form for us to investigate the non-delivery of the Products.
In order to ensure that you receive the Products requested by you as soon as possible then we recommend that you reorder the Products on the website. The Goods will be your responsibility from the time of delivery.
When placing an order with C & C Sports Limited you are entering into a contract with our chosen courier company (Royal Mail). The following links cover the full terms and conditions for this courier: Royal Mail Terms & Conditions.
PRICE AND PAYMENT
The price of the Goods and our postage and packaging charges will be as quoted on our site from time to time, except in cases of obvious error.
Product prices include VAT but do not include postage and packaging.
Prices of Goods and postage and packaging charges are liable to change at any time, but changes will not affect orders in respect of which we have already sent you a Dispatch Confirmation.
Our site contains a large number of Goods and it is always possible that, despite our best efforts, some of the Goods listed on our site may be incorrectly priced. We will normally verify prices as part of our dispatch procedures so that, where the Goods' correct price is less than our stated price, we will charge the lower amount when dispatching the Goods to you. If the Goods' correct price is higher than the price stated on our site, we will normally, at our discretion, either contact you for instructions before dispatching the Goods, or reject your order and notify you that we are rejecting it.
If the pricing error is obvious and unmistakeable and could have reasonably recognised by you as an error, we do not have to provide the Goods to you at the incorrect (lower) price.
Payment for all Goods must be by credit or debit card or by Paypal. We accept payment with Visa, Maestro, Switch, MasterCard, and Solo.
All credit and debit cardholders are subject to validation checks and authorisation by the card issuer. If the issuer of your payment card refuses to authorise payment to us, we shall not be liable for any delay or non-delivery.
We reserve the right to deduct an administration fee from your credit or debit card to cover our reasonable expenses if the Goods are not delivered because the address is incorrect as a result of you providing incorrect information to us when you placed the order.

- If you are returning the Goods because they are damaged or faulty then please include a written explanation of the fault or damage.

In this case, we will refund the price of the Goods in full. However, you will be responsible for the cost of returning the item to us.
- For a reason specified in the first section of “OUR REFUND POLICY” clause, we will examine the returned Product and we may also send the returned Goods to our supplier for examination. If our supplier accepts that the Goods are faulty or defective we will notify you of your refund via e-mail within a reasonable period of time. We will usually process the refund due to you as soon as possible and, in any case, within 30 days of the day we confirmed to you via e-mail that you were entitled to a refund. We will refund the price of the defective Goods in full, any applicable delivery charges and any reasonable costs you incur in returning the item to us.
- We will usually refund any money received from you using the same method originally used by you to pay for your purchase.
