1 OUR AGREEMENT FOR THE SALE OF GOODS AND THE ORDERING PROCESS

If You place an Order, We are not obliged to accept that Order and the Contract between Us will only be formed if and when We accept Your Order. Neither submitting an electronic order form, nor completing the checkout process constitutes Our acceptance of Your Order.
Our acceptance of your order and the formation of a binding contract between you and us will take place when we despatch the goods to you. Up until this point, there will be no contract in place between you and us, which means that neither you nor we will have any rights against or obligations towards the other (i.e. these terms and conditions will not apply to your order until we accept your contract by despatching the goods).
You may include any number of items within a single Order, subject to any restrictions set out in these Terms or on the Website and each Order which You place will be a separate Contract between Us. We reserve the right to refuse to supply Goods to any person.
- 1.2 Any terms and conditions appearing or referred to in the Order or otherwise stipulated by You shall have no effect. Any variation of the Contract must be confirmed in writing by Us.
- 1.3 We may refuse Your Order or cancel Your Order if we decide it is reasonable to do so which may include circumstances where:

- 1.3.6 Goods are unavailable or out of stock.

- 2.1 - See In store terms

This means that if You order more than one item, there is no delivery charge for the additional items.
- 3.2 We may amend prices at any time. Where there is a difference between a price at the time the Order is made and when we ship Your Order, We will inform You by email or telephone and ask You if You wish to proceed.

If the issuer does not authorise payment, We will not accept Your Order and will not be liable for any delay or non-delivery.

If You Change Your Mind
- 5.1 You have a legal right to cancel the contract (subject to certain exceptions set out below) without giving any reason within 14 days of the day after You receive the Goods. This is the “Cancellation Period”.
- 5.2 You can cancel by sending Us the cancellation form provided or by letting Us know in any other way by post to 14 John Prince's London, W1G 0JS; by fax on 020 7493 4414; by e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. You should keep evidence of having given notice of cancellation, such as an e-mail receipt or fax confirmation report.
- 5.3 You must return the Goods to Us (at your own risk and cost) within 14 days of notifying Us that You wish to cancel by sending them (by recorded delivery or courier) to: Online Customer Services (Web Returns) 14 John Prince's London, W1G 0JS or alternatively, if you paid using a debit or credit card, by taking them to back to our retail store together with the delivery note as proof of purchase. We will not be responsible for any costs associated with returning the Goods to Us.
- 5.4 The Goods must be returned unused with the original packaging.
- 5.5 If the nature of the Goods means that You cannot return them by post, You will be responsible for the cost of couriering the Goods to Us; if you contact Customer Services we will try to provide You with an estimate of the courier cost.
- 5.6 We will ordinarily refund the full purchase price together with the standard delivery charge paid within 14 days of receiving the returned Goods or proof of postage of the same. If You chose to pay extra for express delivery, We will only refund the cost of standard delivery. Please note though that if You want to return only some items but keep the rest of Your Order, You may not be entitled to a refund of the delivery charge.
- 5.7 You must take care of the products before You return them to Us. We may reduce the amount We refund to You if You use them, damage them or otherwise do something beyond what is reasonably necessary to examine them that reduces their resale value.
- 5.8 If you simply want to exchange the Goods You have ordered, you can do so within 28 (twenty-eight) days of the day after You receive the Goods.
If Things Go Wrong
- 5.9 We warrant that the Goods which we supply are of satisfactory quality and are fit for the purpose for which Goods of that nature are commonly supplied.
If any of the goods you receive from us (including goods that incorporate digital content) are defective or do not conform to the description we have provided, or any of these terms and conditions (“defective goods”), you should let us know as soon as possible.
You will need to show us what is wrong with the goods and if we accept that there is a fault or non-conformity, we will provide you with a remedy. If this is within 30 days of receiving the goods, we will give you a full refund or replacement (where possible). After 30 days, we will offer you a replacement (where possible). You should contact our customer services team on 020 7493 4414] if you would like to discuss the remedies available.
We will not give you a refund or replacement if the defect or non-conformity is due to usual wear and tear, deliberate or accidental damage caused by you, or your misuse of the goods.
If you believe that you have received defective goods, you should make no further use of them and you should return them, with a proof of purchase (i.e. your dispatch email) to: the returns address in clause 9.3; or if you have paid by debit or credit card, to a CGL store.
If you discover a defect or non-conformity with the goods ordered more than 6 months after receiving them from us, you will need to prove that the defect or non-conformity was present on delivery (e.g. that the fault is an inherent design fault and was not caused by misuse or fair wear and tear). If we are satisfied that this is the case, and agree to give you a refund for the goods, we are entitled to make a deduction in respect of the use you have had of the goods since delivery. We will only ever deduct a reasonable amount, taking into account factors such as the price paid, the expected lifespan of the product, and any wear and tear. We will always let you know if we choose to exercise this right and will agree the deduction with you before providing a refund.
We will aim to process any refund due to you as soon as possible but we will always do so within 14 days of us agreeing that a refund is due. Please note that we will only be able to agree that a refund is due when we have had chance to inspect the goods.
Where you are entitled to a replacement product, we will always try to provide you with a replacement of the exact same item. However, there are circumstances in which this may not be possible (i.e. because the product is out of stock or is no longer being manufactured). Where this is the case, we will give you the option of receiving an substitute product of equivalent value.
[Alternatively, you could choose to keep the defective goods in return for a partial refund. In this scenario we would refund you an appropriate amount to account for the difference in value between the defective goods and the same goods without any fault or non-conformity. For example, if you return a golf bag where the stitching has come loose…]”
The remedies available to you under this clause do not affect your legal rights. For more information on your legal rights and remedies, you should contact Citizens Advice.
- 5.10 If You return Goods to Us for a reason other than if You change Your mind, We will inspect the Goods and either replace them or refund the full purchase price for Goods if we accept that there is a manufacturing defect or other fault in the Goods. This is subject to You returning the Goods to Us within a reasonable period.
- 5.11 We will replace the Goods or refund You provided that the defect or fault is not caused by usual wear and tear, damage caused deliberately or accidentally, Your negligence or if You fail to follow product instructions or if the Goods have been misused, altered or repaired without Our approval. Any refund will also include any delivery charges which You have paid and Your cost of returning the Goods to Us. If We do not find any fault or defect then Your cancellation and refund rights are limited to those set out in Clauses 9.1 to 9.9 above although this does not affect your statutory rights. Subject to Clause 10 below, the remedy in this Clause 9.12 represents our entire liability to You for any claim in respect of the Goods which the law provides, in so far as We are permitted to limit Our liability to You.
- 5.12 If You believe that Goods have a defect then You should not make any further use of them before returning them to Us. Nothing in these Terms shall affect Your statutory rights. These are Your rights granted by law and which cannot be changed by Us.

- 5.13.1 return the Goods to Us in an unused, reasonable condition to the returns address in Clause 9.3; OR
- 5.13.2 if you have paid using a credit or debit card you can return the Goods in a reasonable condition to our store together with the dispatch or delivery note as proof of purchase.
- 5.14 We will aim to process Your refund or replace the Goods as soon as possible but will do so within 30 (thirty) days of You returning the Goods to Us. If you have paid using a credit or debit card and if You choose to return Goods to our stores, any refund or replacement due may be made at that time except that any delivery charge refunds which are due will be processed separately. We reserve the right to send any Goods which You claim are faulty to Our inspections team.
- 5.15 Whenever You return Goods to Us either because You believe they are faulty, We ask that Goods are returned to Us, either by recorded delivery or courier so that You have proof of posting. We will not be responsible for Goods which are lost or damaged in the post.
6 OUR LIABILITY

BASIS FOR USING YOUR INFORMATION
Necessary for the entry into or performance of a contract
When you enter into a transaction with us or one of our brands, a contract between you and the relevant brand will have been entered into. In order for us to fulfil our obligations under such contract (e.g. to allow you to place an order and receive products from us), we will need to collect and process your personal information. Failure to provide the requisite personal information on sign-up to an account or on placing an order and payment information or objecting to this type of processing / exercising your deletion rights will mean we cannot provide our products to you.
Legitimate business interests
- provide you with products as requested by you;
- carry out research to understand our customers and how they purchase and use our products;
- develop and improve our products.
As indicated below, we will also pass your personal data to members of the Capital Golf and other third parties and this is also for our legitimate business interests.
We are required to carry out a balancing test of our legitimate business interests in using your personal data outlined above against your interests and rights under the Data Protection Laws and regulations in the relevant territory. As a result of our balancing test, which is detailed below, we have determined, acting reasonably and considering the circumstances, that we are able to process your personal data in accordance with the Data Protection Laws on the basis that we have a legitimate business interest.
We have a legitimate interest in processing your information as:
· we both benefit from the effective management of your account(s) (where applicable);
· we both benefit from the effective management, operation and administration of our websites;
· we both benefit from the provision of products, services and support and from improvements to our services;
· we both benefit from updates to our websites;
· we will both benefit from the ability to enforce or apply rights under any contract between us;
· we are required to ensure the health and safety of our customers and the security of our stored data and have a legitimate interest in ensuring any processes relating to the same are effective and that fraud and other crimes are prevented and detected;
· we would be unable to provide our products and services without processing your information; and
· we have a legitimate interest in processing your information in connection with any mergers, acquisitions or reorganisation of our business, in which case some of your information may be shared with a prospective buyer or otherwise but only so far as is strictly necessary for the purposes of such sale or administration.
Impact of processing
We consider that it is reasonable for us to process your personal data for the purposes of our legitimate interests outlined above as the processing of your personal data does not unreasonably intrude on your privacy.
As set out above, we will send you marketing communications where you have not told us that you wish to unsubscribe and where you have purchased similar products and/ or services from the same brand. You will also receive marketing communications from us where you have signed up, or otherwise consented, to receive marketing messages from Capital Golf
WHO DO WE SHARE YOUR INFORMATION WITH?
We do not, and will not, sell any of your information to any third party, including your name, address, email address or credit card information. However, we do share your information with a number of select third parties to enable us to provide our products and services to you, to send marketing information and to improve our business operations as set out below.
- Companies that do things to get your purchases to you, such as payment service providers, warehouses, order packers and delivery companies;
- Our trusted service providers, such as marketing agencies, advertising partners, website hosts and other third parties who provide services to help us to tailor our marketing to you;
- Credit reference agencies, law enforcement and fraud prevention agencies;
- Companies approved by you, such as social media sites, including companies such as Facebook and Google; and
- We will provide third parties with aggregated but anonymised information and analytics about our customers and, before we do so, we will make sure that it does not identify you.
We will only share your information with third party suppliers where it is necessary for them to provide us with the services we need.
We may disclose your information to other companies in connection with any merger, acquisition, insolvency situation or otherwise, in which case we will only disclose your information so far as is necessary.
We may also need to disclose personal data to third parties to comply with a legal or regulatory obligation, or if necessary for legal proceedings.
WHAT AUTOMATED DECISIONS DO WE MAKE ABOUT YOU?
We carry out some profiling of you for the purposes of improving and developing our products and services and to help us to tailor our marketing to you.
The impact of any automated decision is to ensure you experience the best service possible.
We use information that we learn about you such as your gender, preferences, hobbies, interests and purchase history to make sure the marketing you receive from us and the way our websites are displayed to you are appropriate and tailored to you.
WHERE IS YOUR INFORMATION STORED AND HOW LONG DO WE KEEP IT FOR?
Transfers outside of the European Economic Area
The information which we collect about you may be transferred outside the European Economic Area. In the event of such transfer, we will ensure the adequate standard of security is in place for example by incorporating the European Commission approved clauses into our agreements with such third parties to ensure the security of your personal data.
Retention of your personal data
- cookies are deleted in accordance with our cookies
- CCTV images are kept for 70 days;
- marketing consents will be refreshed/deleted after 4 years, however, our aim is only to market to you for as long as we believe you want to continue hearing from us based on how you interact with us.
If reasonably necessary or required to meet legal or regulatory requirements, resolve disputes, prevent fraud and abuse, or enforce our terms and conditions, we will also keep hold of some of your information, even if it is no longer needed to provide our services to you.
Security of your personal data
Transmission of information via the internet is not and cannot be completely secure. Although we will do our best to protect your personal data, we cannot guarantee the security of your data transmitted to our websites; any transmission is at your own risk. Once we have received your information, we will use strict procedures and security features to try to prevent unauthorised access.
WHAT NON-PERSONALLY IDENTIFIABLE INFORMATION DO WE COLLECT?
We may also collect non-personally identifiable information (that is, information that does not specifically identify you), for the purposes of aggregates and statistics.
