You should print a copy of these terms and conditions for future reference. These terms, and any contract between us, are only in the English language.

Please click on the button marked “I Accept” at the end of these terms and conditions if you accept them.  Please understand that if you refuse to accept these terms and conditions, you will not be able to order any Products from our site.

  1. Information about us
    1. http://www.thepianoman.ltd.uk is a site operated by The Pianoman Limited (We or Us).  We are registered in England and Wales under company number 4325143 and we have our registered office at York House, Cottingley Business Park, Bradford, BD16 1PE.  Our main trading address is 170 Easterly Road, Leeds, LS8 3AD. Our VAT number is 789 2571 72.
  2. Service Availability
    1. Our site is only intended for use by people resident in Great Britain.  We do not accept orders from individuals outside Great Britain.  
  3. Your status
    1. By placing an order through our site, you warrant that:
      1. You are legally capable of entering into binding contracts; 
      2. You are at least 18 years old;
      3. You are resident in Great Britain; and
      4. You are accessing our site from Great Britain.
  4. How the contract is formed between you and us
    1. Your order constitutes an offer to us to buy a Product. However, please note that this does not mean that your order has been accepted.  Our acceptance of your order will take place as described in clause 4.2 below. After you place an order, you will receive an e-mail from us acknowledging that we have received your order.
    2. All orders are subject to acceptance by us. We will confirm our acceptance of your order by sending you a delivery note with the Product when it has been dispatched (the Delivery Notice).  The contract between us (Contract) will only be formed when we send you the Delivery Notice.  
  5. The Contract will relate only to those Products whose dispatch we have confirmed in the Delivery Notice.  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 Delivery Notice. However, our order process does of course allow you to check and amend any errors before submitting your order to us, and we will send you a confirmation of your order, which you should check to ensure that it describes what you want.  Our Delivery Notice will reflect the details of your order that are set out in our emailed confirmation of your order. 
  1. Our status as principal
    1. Please note that in some cases, in order to make our service to you quicker and more efficient we accept orders as the principal seller but ask our supplier to deliver them directly to you. However, the legal contract is always between you and us (and not with our supplier), and is subject to these terms and conditions.
    2. We may also provide links on our site to the websites of other companies, whether affiliated with us or not.  We cannot give any undertaking, that products you purchase from third party sellers through our site, or from companies to whose website we have provided a link on our site, will be of satisfactory quality, and any such warranties are DISCLAIMED by us absolutely.  This DISCLAIMER does not affect your statutory rights against the third party seller.  We will notify you when a third party is involved in a transaction, and we may disclose your customer information related to that transaction to the third party seller. 
  2. Delivery
    1. We will contact you with an estimated delivery date.
    2. Delivery of an order shall be completed when we deliver the Products to the delivery address you gave us and the Products will be your responsibility from that time.
  3. Risk and title
    1. The Products will be at your risk from the time of delivery.
    2. Ownership of the Products will pass to you upon delivery provided that we have received full payment of all sums due in respect of the Products, including delivery charges.
  4. Price and payment
    1. The price of any Products and delivery charges will be as quoted on our site from time to time, except in cases of obvious error.  
    2. Product prices include VAT but exclude delivery costs, which will be added to the total amount due depending on the method of delivery selected before payment is taken. 
    3. Prices are liable to change at any time, but changes will not affect orders in respect of which we have already sent you a confirmation of your order.
    4. 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. 
    5. We are under no obligation to provide the Product to you at the incorrect (lower) price, if the pricing error is obvious and unmistakeable and could have reasonably been recognised by you as a mis-pricing.
    6. Payment for all Products must be by credit or debit card.  We will not charge your credit or debit card until we dispatch your order.
  5. Returns and Refunds

Clauses 9.1 and 9.10 only apply if you are a consumer.

  1. If you are a consumer, you have a legal right to cancel a Contract during the period set out below in clause 9.3. This means that during the relevant period if you change your mind or decide for any other reason that you do not want to receive or keep a Product, you can notify us of your decision to cancel the Contract and receive a refund. Advice about your legal right to cancel the Contract is available from your local Citizens’ Advice Bureau or Trading Standards office. 
  2. However, this cancellation right does not apply in the case of Products made to your specification or clearly personalised. 
  3. Your legal right to cancel a Contract starts from the date of the Delivery Notice (the date on which we confirm our acceptance of your order), which is when the Contract between us is formed. Your deadline for cancelling the Contract then depends on what you have ordered and how it is delivered, as set out in the table below:
Your Contract End of the cancellation period
Your Contract is for a single Product (which is not delivered in instalments on separate days).The end date is the end of 14 days after the day on which you receive the Product.
Your Contract is for multiple Products which are delivered on separate days.The end date is 14 days after the day on which you receive the last instalment of the Product or the last of the separate Products ordered.
  1. You can also cancel your order for Products at any time prior to the date of the Delivery Notice.
  2. To cancel a Contract, you need to let us know that you have decided to cancel. The easiest way to do this is to complete the cancellation form shown at Annex A of these terms and conditions. If you use this method we will e-mail you to confirm we have received your cancellation. 
  3. If you cancel your Contract we will:
    1. refund you the price you paid for the Products. However, please note we are permitted by law to reduce your refund to reflect any reduction in the value of the Products, if this has been caused by your handling them in a way which would not be permitted in a shop. If we refund you the price before we are able to inspect the Products and later discover you have handled them in an unacceptable way, you must pay us an appropriate amount for diminished value. In particular, in order to protect the Products in transit, you must re-pack them in the same manner in which they were packed when they were delivered to you, or use a specialist courier to return the Products to us (in respect of which see clause 9.8.2 below).
    2. 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 3-5 days at one cost but you choose to have the Product delivered within 24 hours at a higher cost, then we will only refund what you would have paid for the cheaper delivery option.
    3. make any refunds due to you as soon as possible and in any event within the deadlines indicated below:
      1. if you have received the Product, 14 days after the day on which we receive the Product back from you or, if earlier, the day on which you provide us with evidence that you have sent the Product back to us;
      2. if you have not received the Product, 14 days after you inform us of your decision to cancel the Contract.
  4. We will refund you on the credit card or debit card used by you to pay. 
  5. If a Product has been delivered to you before you decide to cancel your Contract:
    1. You must return it to us without undue delay and in any event no later than 14 days after the day on which you let us know that you wish to cancel the Contract. Our returns address is 170 Easterly Road, Leeds, LS8 3AD.
    2. Unless the Product is faulty or not as described you will be responsible for the cost of returning Products to us. We estimate that the cost of a specialist courier to return the Products to us will be around £150 for a long distance journey (to our premises in Leeds) or around £80 for a more local journey. 
  6. Because you are a consumer, we are under a legal duty to supply Products that are in conformity with this Contract. As a consumer, you have legal rights in relation to Products that are faulty or not as described. These legal rights are not affected by your right of return and refund in this clause 9 or anything else in these terms and conditions. Advice about your legal rights is available from your local Citizens’ Advice Bureau or Trading Standards office.
  7. If the Products are faulty or mis-described, and we agree that they are faulty or mis-described, we will exchange the Products or refund the price of the Products in full, together with any applicable delivery charges (whichever you decide). We will arrange for collection and return of the Products through our nominated carrier, which shall be at our cost.

Clause 9.11 only applies if you are a business. 

  1. If the Product you have ordered is delivered faulty or mis-described, we will exchange the Product or provide you with a full refund (whichever you decide). If you believe the Product is faulty or mis-described, you must notify us within 24 working hours of the Product being delivered to you and we will arrange for collection and return of the Product which shall be at our cost. We will examine the returned Product and will notify you of your refund or exchange via e-mail within a reasonable period of time.  
  2. For the purposes of clauses 9.11, “working hours” means 9am to 5pm on any day other than Saturday, Sunday or any public holiday in England. 
  1. Our liability
    1. We warrant to you that any Product purchased from us through our site is of satisfactory quality and reasonably fit for all the purposes for which products of that kind are commonly supplied.

    6. If we are not able to deliver the whole of the Order at one time due to operational reasons or shortage of stock, we will deliver the order in instalments. We will not charge you extra delivery costs for this. If you ask us to deliver the Order in instalments, we may charge you extra delivery costs. Each instalment shall constitute a separate contract.

    2. These prices include VAT. However, if the rate of VAT changes between the date of the Order and the date of delivery, we will adjust the VAT you pay, unless you have already paid for the Goods in full before the change in the rate of VAT takes effect. 
    3. These prices exclude delivery costs, which will be added to the total amount due.
    4. It is always possible that, despite our best efforts, some of the Goods we sell may be incorrectly priced. We will normally check 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 the Order and tell you.

      1. strikes, lock-outs or other industrial action;
      2. civil commotion, riot, invasion, terrorist attack or threat of terrorist attack, war (whether declared or not) or threat or preparation for war; 
      3. fire, explosion, storm, flood, earthquake, subsidence, epidemic or other natural disaster; 
      4. impossibility of the use of railways, shipping, aircraft, motor transport or other means of public or private transport; 
      5. impossibility of the use of public or private telecommunications networks; or 
      6. pandemic or epidemic.
    3. Our obligations under these Terms are suspended for the period that the Force Majeure Event continues, and we will have an extension of time to perform these obligations for the duration of that period. We will take reasonable steps to bring the Force Majeure Event to a close or to find a solution by which our obligations under these Terms can be performed despite the Force Majeure Event.
  2. Assignment

You may not transfer any of your rights or obligations under these Terms to another person without our prior written consent, which we will not withhold unreasonably. We can transfer all or any of our rights and obligations under these Terms to another organisation, but this will not affect your rights under these Terms.

  1. Notices

All notices sent by you to us must be sent to The Pianoman Limited at 170 Easterly Road, Leeds, LS8 3AD OR markthepianoman@gmail.com. We may give notice to you at either the e-mail or postal address you provide to us in the Order. Notice will be deemed received and properly served 24 hours after an e-mail is sent or three days after the date of posting of any letter. In proving the service of any notice, it will be sufficient to prove, in the case of a letter, that the letter was properly addressed, stamped and placed in the post and, in the case of an e-mail, that the e-mail was sent to the specified e-mail address of the addressee.

  1. General
    1. If any court or competent authority decides that any of the provisions of these Terms are invalid, unlawful or unenforceable to any extent, the term will, to that extent only, be severed from the remaining terms, which will continue to be valid to the fullest extent permitted by law.
    2. If we fail, at any time while these Terms are in force, to insist that you perform any of your obligations under these Terms, or if we do not exercise any of our rights or remedies under these Terms, that will not mean that we have waived such rights or remedies and will not mean that you do not have to comply with those obligations. If we do waive a default by you, that will not mean that we will automatically waive any subsequent default by you. No waiver by us of any of these Terms shall be effective unless we expressly say that it is a waiver and we tell you so in writing.
    3. A person who is not party to these Terms shall not have any rights under or in connection with them under the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999.
    4. These Terms shall be governed by English law and we both agree to the non-exclusive jurisdiction of the English courts.
