Making A Purchase

When confirmation of your order is received, this is to indicate that we have received your order. It does not indicate that a contract exists between us. We will indicate acceptance of your order, and hence a contract between us, when we send you confirmation that your order is being processed. We have included this term to protect us in the case that a mistake has been made in pricing, we have inadvertently under-priced goods, or we are no longer able to supply a particular product for some reason. In the case of a change of price, we will always contact you first to ensure that the price is acceptable.

Frivolous and Vexatious Complaints
These are thankfully rare. Since 2001 we have had just a handful of people who have sought to obstruct us conducting our business through vexatious behaviour.
Frivolous or vexatious complaints include:
Complaints which are obsessive, persistent, harassing, prolific, repetitious;
The pursuit of unmeritorious complaints and/or unrealistic outcomes beyond all reason;
The pursuit of meritorious complaints in an unreasonable manner;
Complaints designed to cause disruption, obstruction or annoyance;
Demands for redress which lack any serious purpose or value.
Vexatious complaints are often accompanied by abuse which we do not tolerate. We always take legal advice and have no hesitation in involving the police where harassment, abuse or fraud takes place. If we decide that a complaint is vexatious, we will terminate contact with no notice.

Special Offers
Occasionally we send out offer codes to selected customers, or reduce the price of certain products (e.g. "Buy one, get one free" or "Spend £15, receive x product free"). We reserve the right to substitute an alternative offer or product in the event of the original offer product becoming out of stock because of demand.

Shipping And Handling

Please see the Shipping Page for the latest information.

Delivery Schedule

We aim to process your order within two working days and to disptch it as soon as it is ready. Bank Holidays and pandemics add extra time so please be patient and allow a good 7-10 working days for your order to arrive.
Incorrect Delivery Details
It's your responsibility to get your address details right. If they're wrong, your order is likely to get lost in the Royal Mail system. We do not issue refunds for items that do not arrive because the address was wrong. Please do not set your delivery address as a Collect+ or similar outlet. Royal Mail is not a courier.
Claims for Non-Delivery
From time to time, Royal Mail loses things. If your order was sent Second or First Class and it hasn't arrived within ten days, let us know. Obviously if you have paid for Next Working Day and it hasn't arrived (and you've waited in for it) then let us know straightaway.
What we do next is this: we ask you to be patient and wait a few more days. If the item is still missing, we will send you an email form to complete and return, which amounts to a statement confirming that the item is missing and that you have made checks that it has not been delivered elsewhere e.g. the local Royal Mail Delivery Office. You can at this stage request a replacement or a refund, but bear in mind that if the original item subsequently arrives, you must inform us immediately.

Back Orders

If your item is not in stock, we will back order for you. If there is likely to be a significant delay, we will email you with the option to cancel your order if you would rather not wait.

Tax Charges

For orders made from the UK, 20% VAT is included in the purchase price. We do not pocket this. It goes to the UK Treasury. Orders from overseas may be subject to import dutues and other charges. It is your reponsibility to pay these.

Credit Card Security

Snorestore Ltd is a secure website. All your personal data is transferred using high grade 128/256 bit Strong SSL Encryption to protect it from being intercepted. You do not actually enter any payment information onto the Snorestore website at all.
Snorestore is required to undergo regular scans of our website and our business network to ensure that Snorestore is a secure environment for you to browse and from which to make a purchase. We are fully compliant with card processing industry standards.

Fraud Prevention
Sometimes we receive warnings that a transaction is suspicious. In these cases, we always make additional checks and may decide that the transaction is fraudulent. If so, we will cancel the order and refund the amount paid to the credit card concerned. These simple steps help ensure that the majority of customers are protected from the fraudulent activities of the few.

Returns Policy

Your rights to return goods are protected under the UK Consumer Contracts Regulations. Your right to cancel an order for goods starts when you receive the goods and lasts for 14 days.
A refund will be given if your item is returned to us with its original undamaged box or packaging and has not been used.
Earplugs fall within the scope of the exemption in the Consumer Contracts Regulations. which allows retailers not to accept returns of used or contaminated personal hygiene items. Click the link and look for the section "What types of contracts are exempt from cancellation rights?".
We don't charge a restocking fee for returned items provided the return falls within the conditions detailed earlier. We do however charge a small fee for items which are returned by Royal Mail as not collected by the recipient, or marked as undeliverable because of customers providing incorrect address details. This covers our time spent processing the return and the packaging which cannot be re-used.
The returns address is on our Customer Information page. You are responsible for paying the postage to return unwanted items. Included in your refund is our lowest delivery price for getting your whole order to you in the first place, so if you opted for an expedited service eg guaranteed next day, we only refund the basic cost.

Faulty Items
We will refund your money and postage costs if the goods were faulty. Any items you consider to be faulty should be returned with their original packaging to the Snorestore address on the Contact Us page. Please note that "does not fit" does not equal "faulty". Not all earplugs will fit you and no earplugs will block out all noise. That is why we recommend a Sleep Earplugs Pack as your first purchase.

Instructions for Use
Please read all the instructions on the product packaging carefully, check the "How to" section and email us if you require any further help. Adults must ensure that earplugs are kept out of the reach of children. Serious injury or death can result from misuse. Read our Disclaimer notice here.

And Finally...
We're really not as fierce as this lengthy page makes us sound. And we're always pleased to hear from our customers. You can find our contact details here.
