CONDITIONS RELATING TO THE SALE OF PRODUCTS TO YOUTitle of GoodsTitle to the goods remains with Hockeystickz.com and does not pass to the purchaser until the goods have been paid for in full.Claims and ShortagesNotification of damage or shortages must be made to Hockeystickz.com as soon as possible and certainly within 7 days of receipt of goods. Notification of non-delivery must be made within 14 days of invoice date.Product DescriptionsWe are careful to ensure that descriptions and photographs represent correctly the products available. As it is our policy to continually improve products, methods and materials, we reserve the right to change specifications from time to time. We will not make any significant variations without your agreement. Goods sold at discount prices as remnants or as substandard stock will be identified and will be stated to be sold as such.Your Right to Cancel We offer a ‘no quibble’ refund policy for any goods (other than those listed in our returns policy) for any goods returned within 14 days of receipt so long as they are in "Perfect Condition" and fit for "Re-Sale" at their full selling price. This will not affect your statutory rights.Summary of Rights and Remedies According to The Sale of Goods Act 1979 Buyers are entitled to goods of satisfactory quality, taking account of any description, the price and other relevant circumstances. If an item has a fault that is present at the time of sale (sometimes referred to as an "inherent" fault), the consumer can complain once it is discovered.Buyers cannot expect a legal remedy in respect of:
Fair wear and tear: In the case of Field Hockey sticks, this would include: The head wearing down due to use on synthetic pitches such as sand and water based artificial turf Pitting on and/or around the head Damage to decals through normal play
Misuse or accidental damage In the case of Field Hockey sticks, this would include: Any damage caused as a direct result of a stick collision Any damage caused by striking the ball with any area other than the front, flat part of the head. i.e. blading or performing the ‘Argentinean backhand’ shot Lack of maintenance including the application of resins such as stick magic and the regular application of stick tape If they decide they no longer want the item.Similarly, buyers cannot expect a legal remedy where goods have faults that they knew about before the sale or that should have been evident on reasonable inspection.Remedies
If a product that was faulty at the time of sale is returned to the retailer, the buyer is legally entitled to:A full refund, if this is within a reasonable time of the sale ("reasonable time" is not defined in law but as a reasonable guide is considered to be within 4 weeks of receipt of goods – This guideline was advised by ‘Trading Standards’)A reasonable amount of compensationAdditional rights for consumers Alternatively, consumers can choose to request instead:A repair or replacement. The retailer can decline either of these if he can show that they are disproportionately costly in comparison with the alternative. If neither repair nor replacement is realistically possible, consumers can request instead:A partial or full refund, depending on what is reasonable in the circumstances.
It may be the case that a full refund is not the reasonable option because the consumer will have enjoyed some benefit from the goods before the problem appeared. This needs to be taken into account before a reasonable partial refund can be assessed – In the case of hockey sticks where their expected life is one season (9 months), any refund offered would take into account the age of the stick based on their expected life. 12.
