Please note that the acknowledgment email referred to in paragraph 6 does not mean that your order has been accepted - your order constitutes an offer to us to purchase the item(s). All orders are subject to acceptance by us and we will confirm such acceptance by sending you an email confirming that we have dispatched the item(s) to you (the “Dispatch Confirmation”). That email shall represent our legal acceptance of the offer you made to purchase the item (s) and the contract between us (the “Contract”) will only be formed when we send you the Dispatch Confirmation.

8. Price and Payment
All prices include VAT but exclude delivery costs, which will be added to the total amount. Goods dispatched by Blue Banyan to addresses outside of the European Union are generally not subject to VAT.
If you order goods for delivery outside the UK, they may be subject to import duties and taxes which are levied when the delivery reaches the specified destination. You will be responsible for payment of any such import duties and taxes. Please note that we have no control over these charges and cannot predict their amount. Please contact your local customs office for further information before placing your order.
All credit and charge card holders are subject to validation checks and authorisation by the card issuer. If the issuer of your payment card refuses to authorise payment to us, your order will not be accepted and Blue Banyan will not be liable for any delay or non-delivery.
Please also note that you must comply with all applicable laws and regulations of the country for which the products are destined. We will not be liable for any breach by you of any such laws.
9. Safe Shopping - secure guarantee
Blue Banyan will take all reasonable steps to protect your personal information. All the data that you send through, including your credit/debit card number and name and address, is encrypted and converted into code before it is transmitted across the Internet. Therefore in the extremely unlikely event that the data should be intercepted, it would be encrypted and difficult to decipher.
Also for your added security Blue Banyan does not process any credit/debit card transactions. The processing is done by HSBC. Unlike many sites, we DO NOT keep any database on our computer of your credit card details. This increases security but will result in the slight inconvenience of having to provide your details next time you shop with us.
Goods will be sent to the address given by you in your order and stated in the Order Confirmation. Please note that your goods may be sent to you in instalments. Your order should normally reach within 3-5 working days if you live in the UK and within 10 working days for the rest of Europe. If for any reason your order is likely to be delayed significantly longer than this we will email you to let you know. Our delivery prices are based on the overall weight of your order. Our website allows you to obtain a quotation for delivery before proceeding through the checkout pages and making your payment, please refer to our delivery information page which form part of these Terms and Conditions for further information.
