Terms of Sale

By placing an order you are offering to purchase a product on and subject to the following terms and conditions. All orders are subject to availability and confirmation of the order price.

Dispatch times may vary according to availability and any guarantees or representations made as to delivery times are subject to any delays resulting from postal delays or force majeure for which we will not be responsible. Please see our Shipping Charges notice for further information.

In order to contract with KIDLY you must be over 18 years of age and possess a valid credit or debit card issued by a bank acceptable to us. KIDLY retains the right to refuse any request made by you, and KIDLY reserves the right to close your KIDLY account at its sole discretion. If your order is accepted we will inform you by email and we will confirm the identity of the party which you have contracted with. This will usually be KIDLY or may in some cases be a third party. Where a contract is made with a third party KIDLY is not acting as either agent or principal and the contract is made between yourself and that third party and will be subject to the terms of sale which they supply you. When placing an order you undertake that all details you provide to us are true and accurate, that you are an authorised user of the credit or debit card used to place your order and that there are sufficient funds to cover the cost of the goods. The cost of foreign products and services may fluctuate. All prices advertised are subject to such changes. Please be aware that some of the goods sold through our Websites may not be suitable for children under 18 years of age, so please take extra care when purchasing goods as gifts, for under 18's.

a. Our Contract

i. When you place an order, you will receive an acknowledgement e-mail confirming receipt of your order. This email will only be an acknowledgement and will not constitute acceptance of your order. A contract between us for the purchase of the goods will not be formed until your payment has been approved us and we have debited your credit or debit card.

b. Pricing and Availability

i. Whilst we try and ensure that all details, descriptions and prices which appear on this Website are accurate, errors may occur. If we discover an error in the price of any goods which you have ordered we will inform you of this as soon as possible and give you the option of reconfirming your order at the correct price or cancelling it. If we are unable to contact you we will treat the order as cancelled. If you cancel and you have already paid for the goods, you will receive a full refund. Where applicable, prices are inclusive of VAT. Shipping costs will be charged in addition; such additional charges are clearly where applicable and included in the 'Total Cost'.

ii. The Service may contain typographical errors or other errors or inaccuracies and may not be complete or current. We therefore reserve the right to correct any errors, inaccuracies or omissions and to change or update information at any time without prior notice. We reserve the right to refuse to fill any orders that you may place based on information on the Service that may contain errors or inaccuracies, including, without limitation, errors, inaccuracies or out-of-date information regarding pricing, shipping, payment terms, or return policies.

c. Payment

i. Upon receiving your order we carry out a standard pre-authorisation check on your payment card to ensure there are sufficient funds to fulfil the transaction. Goods will not be dispatched until this pre-authorisation check has been completed. Your card will be debited once the order has been accepted.

d. Refunds

Exercising your right to change your mind (Consumer Contracts Regulations 2013).

For most products bought online you have a legal right to change your mind within 14 days and receive a full refund for the products (subject to the paragraph below Deductions from refunds if you are exercising your right to change your mind). We offer a period of 365 days after the day you (or someone you nominate) receive the items in which you are permitted to return the items to us and receive a full refund. It is free to return any items to KIDLY if you use a pre-approved method as set out in our Shipping and Returns Policy. We will also refund the original cost of delivering the item to you if you return the whole order to us. You have further legal rights to end the contract which are set out in more detail below.

When you don't have the right to change your mind.

You do not have a right to change your mind in respect of products which are personalised or which are sealed for health protection or hygiene purposes, once these have been unsealed after you receive them.

Your Rights to End the Contract.

Your rights when you end the contract will depend on what you have bought, whether there is anything wrong with it, how we are performing and when you decide to end the contract:

(a) if what you have bought is faulty or misdescribed you may have a legal right to end the contract (or to get the product repaired or replaced or to get some or all of your money back), see paragraph 'Summary of your Legal Rights' below; or

(b) if you want to end the contract because of something we have done or have told you we are going to do, see paragraph 'Ending the contract because of something we have done or are going to do' below.

Ending the contract because of something we have done or are going to do.

If you are ending a contract for a reason set out at (a) to (e) below the contract will end immediately and we will refund you in full for any products which have not been provided and you may also be entitled to compensation. The reasons are:

(a) we have told you about an upcoming change to the product or these terms which you do not agree to (see b. Pricing and Availability under Terms of Sale above);

(b) we have told you about an error in the price or description of the product you have ordered and you do not wish to proceed (see b. Pricing and Availability under Terms of Sale above);

(c) there is a risk that supply of the products may be significantly delayed because of events outside our control;

(d) we have suspended supply of the products for technical reasons, or notify you we are going to suspend them for technical reasons, in each case for a period of more than 2 weeks; or

(e) you have a legal right to end the contract because of something we have done wrong.

How to end the contract with us

Tell us if you want to end the contract. To end the contract with us, please let us know by doing one of the following:

  • Email. Email us at hello@kidly.co.uk. Please provide your name, home address, details of the order and, where available, your phone number and email address.
  • By post. Write to us at KIDLY, Hercules Way, Leavesden, WD25 7GS, UK, including details of what you bought, when you ordered or received it and your name and address.

Your obligation to return rejected products.

If you wish to exercise your legal rights to reject products or you wish to return the products within the 365-day period, you must post the products back to us. When returning products to us you will need to use the relevant return label available to be printed on our Shipping and Returns page. If you do not use one of the pre-paid services described on KIDLY's Shipping and Returns page, then you will be responsible for the cost to return the products. If you are returning your whole order to us, then we will also refund the original cost of delivering your items to you.

If you feel the goods are not suitable for posting, please contact our customer service team by emailing: hello@kidly.co.uk or writing to: KIDLY, Hercules Way, Leavesden, WD25 7GS, UK to discuss collection options. You must make the goods available to us for collection from you if we agree to collect the goods. You will be responsible for the cost of collection but we will only charge you the direct cost to us for collection. We will not charge you for administrative, handling or re-stocking in connection with the return of the goods.

Deductions from refunds if you are exercising your right to change your mind.

We may reduce your refund of the price (excluding shipping costs) to reflect any reduction in the value of the goods, if this has been caused by your handling them in a way which would not be permitted in a shop. You are permitted to remove goods from their original packaging for inspection purposes but the goods must be returned to us in their original packaging in order to obtain a full refund. If we refund you the price paid before we are able to inspect the goods and later discover you have handled them in an unacceptable way, you must pay us an appropriate amount.

How we will refund you.

We will refund you the price you paid for the products, including any original shipping costs if you are returning your whole order, by the method you used for payment. We will make any refunds due to you as soon as possible. If you are exercising your right to change your mind then, if we have not offered to collect goods, your refund will be made within 14 days from 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. For information about how to return a product to us, see section 'Your obligation to return rejected products'.

Summary of your legal rights.

We are under a legal duty to supply products that are in conformity with the contract. See below for a summary of your key legal rights in relation to the product. Nothing in these terms will affect your legal rights.

The Consumer Rights Act 2015 says goods must be as described, fit for purpose and of satisfactory quality. During the expected lifespan of your product your legal rights entitle you to the following:

(a) Up to 30 days: if your goods are faulty, then you can get an immediate refund.

(b) Up to six months: if your goods can't be repaired or replaced, then you're entitled to a full refund, in most cases.

(c) Up to six years: if your goods do not last a reasonable length of time you may be entitled to some money back.

Ethical Sourcing Policy

As a reputable and trusted business committed to offering its customers high quality products, KIDLY recognizes its obligation to ensure that suppliers are operating ethically.

We expect our suppliers to consistently provide an environment which protects their employees' health and safety and basic human rights.

All suppliers are expected to comply with their national employment laws and regulations with particular regard to:

  • Minimum age of employment
  • Freely chosen employment
  • Health and safety
  • Freedom of association and the right to collective bargaining
  • No discrimination
  • No harsh or inhumane treatment
  • Working hours
  • Rates of pay
  • Terms of employment

KIDLY will never knowingly source stock from countries which are in breach of the above principles. We also look to our suppliers to instil these principles when dealing with their own supplier base.

Because of the sometimes complex nature of our suppliers' supply chain, it is not always possible to monitor and control the conditions of each individual involved in the production of our products. However, as KIDLY continues to grow it recognises the importance of being proactive and doing everything within its power to support the rights of those involved in the manufacture of its goods.
