We always appreciate your feedback or other suggestions about Skank, but you understand that we may use them without any obligation to compensate you for them (just as you have no obligation to offer them).

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. This website is meant for a personal use only. The products purchased on the Website shall not be resold.

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 for. Please see our Delivery Policy notice for further information.

In order to contract with Skank you must be over 18 years of age and possess a valid credit or debit card issued by a bank acceptable to us. Skank retains the right to refuse any request made by you. If your order is accepted we will inform you by email. This will usually be Skank or may in some cases be a third party.

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.


Our Contract

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 by us and we have debited your credit or debit card.

If you wish to cancel an order after having made your purchase, please refer to the Returns section of this Website. You can always return your items according to the terms indicated in the Returns section.

All orders, including information relating to your order and applicable Terms of Service, will be saved for a period of one year. This information will be available on your account that you can access from the top-right corner of the Website. You can also ask that information to our customer service.


Pricing and Availability

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 your order is cancelled and you have already paid for the goods, you will receive a full refund. We try our best to make sure all the products available on the Website are available. However, if the product you ordered was to be unavailable, we would reimburse you for any amount paid for the unavailable item, and we would notify you of the refund by email.

Where applicable, prices are inclusive of VAT. Delivery costs will be charged in addition; such additional charges are clearly displayed where applicable and included in the 'Total Cost'.

You are considered as the importer of any order that is shipped to you. Please note that the issuer of your credit card may charge additional fees. We advise you to get in touch with your bank in order to know if fees would apply in your case.

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.


Payment

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.

Please note that we do not accept payments by check, or by cash.

Ethical Sourcing Policy

As a reputable and trusted business committed to offering its customers high quality products, Skank 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

Skank will never knowingly source stock from suppliers that 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 Skank 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.
