Description of products
Each Product purchased is sold subject to the Conditions and its Product Description.
We will take all reasonable care to ensure that all details, descriptions and prices of Products appearing on the Website are correct at the time when the relevant information was entered onto the system. Although we aim to keep the Website as up to date as possible, the information including Product Descriptions appearing on this Website at a particular time may not always reflect the position exactly at the moment you place an order. We cannot confirm the price of a Product until your order is accepted in accordance with our Order acceptance policy.
Discounts and promotional discount codes offered by http://lit-control.co.uk from time to time are valid only for use as part of a purchase made via http://lit-control.co.uk, unless otherwise stated.
When you use the Website, you will see that we may offer you recommendations, showing products we think you might like and could perhaps miss when you are browsing the site.
To the extent that we utilise such, these will be based on your past purchases, top sellers, ratings and recently-viewed products. We determine your interests and suggest new products you may like; additionally we may compare your interests and buying habits with the interests and habits of other customers, to show you relevant products.
Your recommendations may change when you make a purchase and move around the site. You might like to add products that interest you to your wish list for future reference.
We take reasonable care to ensure our recommendations are in line with your behaviour as a customer on http://lit-control.co.uk. Details of the products we recommend – such as price – are correct at the time recommendations are originally made to you, but can be subject to change without notice.
Purchase of Products
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 a Product. Once we have verified your order and payment details and have approved your order for shipment, we will confirm such acceptance to you by sending you a Dispatch Confirmation that confirms that the Product will be dispatched within 3 working days of receipt of such e-mail. In the unlikely event that we encounter a problem when processing your order, you will receive an email from us detailing the problem and requesting further information. The contract between us (contract) will only be formed when we send you the Dispatch Confirmation.
The contract will relate only to those Products whose dispatch we have confirmed in the Dispatch Confirmation. We will not be obliged to supply any other Products which may have been part of your order until the dispatch of such Products has been confirmed in a separate Dispatch Confirmation.
You will receive regular updates on your order and delivery status by email from us, as we deem appropriate.
Shipping times will vary but as the items are all sent under Royal Mail or My Hermes service, we would hope that your items will reach you approximately 48 hours from dispatch of goods and 96 hours from placing the order. Please note we cannot take responsibility for any delays to orders due to any difficulties experienced by Royal Mail or My Hermes, customs clearance or payment transaction delays.
Acceptance of any order and subsequent delivery of the Product will be subject to the overall legal and regulatory framework applicable to both Purple Orchid Health Ltd and the person submitting the order. Accordingly, we reserve the right to reject any order or part thereof, to the extent we believe (in our absolute discretion) that to fulfil all or part of such order would be in contravention of the applicable legal or regulatory requirement.
Contract cancellations under the Distance Selling Regulations
Please note that you are entitled to cancel this contract if you so wish provided that you exercise your right and notify us within seven working days, beginning on the day after you received the Products. In this case, you will receive a full refund of the price paid for the Products in accordance with our refunds policy.
If you wish to exercise your right to cancel this contract after your order has already been dispatched, we will refund the original purchase price and (to the extent required in accordance with the relevant statutory obligations) delivery charge, provided that you have notified us in writing no longer than 7 working days after the day on which you receive the Products in the same condition in which you received them, and at your own cost and risk.
Details of this statutory right, and an explanation of how to exercise it, are provided in the Dispatch Confirmation. This provision does not affect your statutory rights.
Personal Information and Orders
We will take all reasonable care, in so far as it is in our power to do so, to keep the details of your order and payment secure and will conduct ourselves in accordance with the procedures that we have set out and detailed to you in these Conditions but in the absence of negligence on our part we cannot be held liable for any loss you may suffer if a third party procures unauthorised access to any data you provide when accessing or ordering from the Website.

Availability and Delivery
Orders placed through the Website are delivered on our behalf by our chosen delivery partners, Royal Mail and MyHermes. Accordingly, these deliveries are conducted in accordance with the terms and conditions applicable to such services as set out on their website. On this basis, you are advised to review such terms and conditions prior to submitting an order and (by placing an order) shall be deemed to have agreed to such.
Unless otherwise agreed in writing by us, delivery of the Products will take place at the Delivery Point.
Any dates specified by us for delivery of the Products are intended to be an estimate and time for delivery shall not be made of the essence by notice. If no dates are so specified, delivery shall be within a reasonable time.
Subject to the other provisions of these conditions we shall not be liable for any direct, indirect or consequential loss (all three of which terms include, without limitation, pure economic loss, loss of profits, loss of business, depletion of goodwill and similar loss), costs, damages, charges or expenses caused directly or indirectly by any delay in the delivery of the Products (even if caused by our negligence), nor shall any delay entitle you to terminate or rescind the contract unless such delay exceeds 180 days.
If for any reason you fail to accept delivery of any of the Products when they are ready for delivery, or we are unable to deliver the Products on time because you have not provided appropriate instructions, documents, licences or authorisations:
(a) risk in the Products shall pass to you (including for loss or damage caused by our negligence);
(b) the Products shall be deemed to have been delivered; and
(c) we may store the Products until delivery, whereupon you shall be liable for all related costs and expenses (including, without limitation, storage and insurance).
You shall provide at the Delivery Point and at its expense adequate and appropriate equipment and manual labour for loading and unloading the Products.
Your signature on the delivery note shall constitute acceptance of the Products including but not limited to their quality and quantity
We may deliver the Products by separate instalments. Each separate instalment shall be invoiced and paid for in accordance with the provisions of the contract.
Each instalment shall be a separate contract and no cancellation or termination of any one contract relating to an instalment shall entitle you to repudiate or cancel any other contract or instalment.
Risk and Title
Ownership of the Products shall not pass to you until we have received in full (in cash or cleared funds) all sums due to us in respect of the (i) Products; and (ii) all other sums which are or which become due to us from you on any account.
Until ownership of the Products has passed to you, you shall:
(a) hold the Products on a fiduciary basis as our bailee; (b) store the Products (at no cost to us) separately from all other products of you or any third party in such a way that they remain readily identifiable as our property; (c) not destroy, deface or obscure any identifying mark or packaging on or relating to the Products; and (d) maintain the Products in satisfactory condition and keep them insured on our behalf for their full price against all risks to the reasonable satisfaction of us. On request you shall produce the policy of insurance to us.
Price and Payment
The price of any Products will be as quoted on our Website, except in cases of obvious error and may be amended by us from time to time.
Products ordered that are a total less than £50 in value will be subject to a packaging and freight charge.
The price for the Products are inclusive of VAT. Any additional charges (such as those applicable to orders under £50 in value) will be provided at the checkout of an order. Except for orders under £50 in value, the price shall be inclusive of all costs or charges in relation to packaging, loading, unloading, carriage and insurance.
Prices 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 Products and it is always possible that, despite our best efforts, some of the Products listed on our site may be incorrectly priced. We will normally verify prices as part of our dispatch procedures so that, where a Product’s correct price is less than our stated price, we will charge the lower amount when dispatching the Product to you. If a Product’s 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 Product, or reject your order and notify you of such rejection.
We are under no obligation to provide the Product to you at the incorrect (lower) price, even after we have sent you a Dispatch Confirmation, if the pricing error is obvious and unmistakable and could have reasonably been recognised by you as a mis-pricing.
Payment for all Products must be by credit or debit card. We accept payment with cards as listed on our Website from time to time.
Return of Product
Products may only be returned to us if we have given our prior written consent and issued a returns reference number.
Products shall be deemed to be in accordance with your order unless you notify us in writing within 48 hours of delivery.
We do not supply products on a “Sale or Return” basis.
Products returned by you because of a defect will be refunded in full, including a refund of the delivery charges for sending the item to you and the cost incurred by you in returning the item to us.
Products returned by you within the seven-day cooling-off period once successfully received (in accordance with the requisite Conditions) will be refunded in full, including the cost of sending the item to you in the event of a product defect only, through your original payment method. Please be aware that payments can take up to 14 working days to process depending on your bank or payment provider. However, you will be responsible for the cost of returning the item to us.
