    2. If we cannot accept your order. If we are unable to accept your order, we will inform you of this and will not charge you for the products. This might be because the product you’ve ordered is out of stock, because of unexpected limits on our resources which we could not reasonably plan for, because of an issue or change in our business operations, or because we have identified an error in the price or description of the products or because we are unable to meet a delivery deadline you have specified. 
    3. Your order number. We will assign an order number to your order and tell you what it is when we accept your order. It will help us if you can tell us the order number whenever you contact us about your order.

      2. to implement minor technical adjustments and improvements.

Some products types will inevitably go out of stock and we therefore reserve the right to select and deliver to you a substitute (of equal or higher value) to the products you have ordered, to avoid delay in the delivery of orders. If we are unable to supply a particular item, or do not supply a substitute, we will not be liable to you except to ensure that you are not charged for that item.
    3. More significant changes to the products and these terms. In addition, as we informed you in the description of the products on our website, we may make changes to these terms or the products, but if we do so we will notify you and you may then contact us to end the contract before the changes take effect and receive a refund for any products paid for but not received.

    1. You should inspect the products promptly at the time of delivery and notify us of any defects promptly after delivery.

On receipt of the goods, we will promptly and fully refund the price of any products that are defective, or else arrange for the delivery of replacement products.
    2. As a consumer, you have certain legal rights regarding the return of faulty or misdescribed goods. Our refund procedure described below does not affect your legal rights in relation to such goods. Our returns policy meets the requirements of your statutory rights under the Consumer Contracts Regulations 2013. For further information about your legal rights contact your local authority Trading Standards Department, or a Citizens Advice Bureau.
  7. if you are a consumer – Your rights to cancel the contract
    1. How long do consumers have to change their minds and cancel an order? You have until 30 days after the day you (or someone you nominate) receives the products.

    5. How we will refund you.  If you are entitled to a refund under these terms we will refund you the price you paid for the products including delivery costs, by the method you used for payment. 
    6. When you will not be entitled to a refund. If you are exercising your right to change your mind: 
      1. We may refuse to refund the price (excluding delivery costs) to reflect any reduction in the value of the products, if this has been caused by your handling it in a way which would not be permitted in a shop. For example, if you open any sealed packaging. In order to receive a full refund, products must be returned unused, unopened, in their original condition and packaging with all materials, manuals and accessories intact.
      2. The maximum refund for delivery costs will be the costs of delivery by the least expensive delivery method we offer. For example, if we offer standard delivery of products within one period at one cost but you choose to have the products delivered within a shorter period at a higher cost, then we will only refund what you would have paid for the cheaper delivery option.
    7. When your refund will be made. We will make any refunds due to you as soon as possible.  If you are a consumer exercising your right to change your mind then: 
      1. your refund will be made within 14 days from the day on which we receive the products back from you or, if earlier, the day on which you provide us with evidence that you have sent the products back to us. For information about how to return products to us, see Condition 8.3.

Privacy Policy

Last updated: March 8, 2019

Welcome to Kupto.co.uk! We take the privacy of our customers and website users very seriously. We ask that you read this Privacy Policy (‘the Policy’) carefully as it contains important information about how we will use your personal data.

For the purposes of the data protection legislation, Vinice Ltd, trading as Kupto (‘we’ or ‘us’) is the ‘data controller’ (i.e. the company who is responsible for, and controls the processing of, your personal data).

Generally, we do not give your information to third parties, but there are some exceptions where we use external service providers to power our operations.

We are happy to answer your questions about any of this – email us at info@kupto.co.uk.

Personal data we may collect about you

We will obtain personal data about you (such as your name, address, email address and payment details) whenever you place an order for goods from our site, or if you create an account on our site.

How we use your personal data

We use your information for the following purposes:

  • to help us identify you and any accounts you hold with us;
  • administration of your order and of our business;
  • (if you have consented to it) marketing—see ‘Marketing and opting out’, below;

Mailchimp is based outside the EEA, in the USA. The  USA does not have the same data protection laws as the United Kingdom and European Economic Area (“EEA”). Whilst the European Commission has not given a formal decision that the USA provides an adequate level of data protection similar to those which apply in the United Kingdom and EEA, any transfer of your personal information to Mailchimp will be subject to the EU-US Privacy Shield, which is a safeguard sanctioned under the EU General Data Protection Regulation for personal data transferred outside the EEA. Mailchimp is certified under the EU-US Privacy Shield. You can view their certifications by searching for the company name here – https://www.privacyshield.gov/list. More detail on the EU-US Privacy Shield is available here – https://ec.europa.eu/info/law/law-topic/data-protection/data-transfers-outside-eu/eu-us-privacy-shield_en.

PayPal has in place ‘binding corporate rules’ which provide appropriate safeguards in the event that it transfers data outside the EEA and UK. For more information see PayPal’s Privacy Policy here – https://www.paypal.com/webapps/mpp/ua/privacy-prev.

Keeping your data secure

We will use technical and organisational measures to safeguard your personal data, for example, we store your personal data on secure servers and have internal processes intended to keep your data secure.

While we will use all reasonable efforts to safeguard your personal data, you acknowledge that the use of the internet is not entirely secure and for this reason we cannot guarantee the security or integrity of any personal data that are transferred from you or to you via the internet.

How to complain

We hope that we can resolve any query or concern you raise about our use of your information.

Legitimate Interest – This means the interest of our business in conducting and managing our business to enable us to give you the best service and the best and most secure experience when buying our products.
