Shopping with http://store.thesbcollective.com/
We will take all reasonable care to keep the details of your order and payment secure, but in the absence of negligence on our part we cannot be held liable for any loss you may suffer if a third party procures unauthorised access to any data you provide when accessing or ordering from the Website.

Our acceptance of an order takes place when we despatch the order. We will send you a despatch confirmation by email. When we despatch the order the purchase contract will be made even if your payment has been processed prior to despatch, unless we have notified you that we do not accept your order or you have cancelled your order.

We hope that all of our customers see this as a good will gesture and not a necessity.
Non-EU customers are responsible for Import Duty/Tax in their respective countries. Unfortunately we cannot advise you what these costs will be - please consult your local customs office for more information
See Shipping and Despatch section.
Only one discount code per order can be used at a time. If a discount code is not applied then it is at our discretion if the code is applied to the order.
SBC delivers to destinations world-wide.
We use selected couriers and have various delivery options available.
Orders are delivered by courier. Our couriers require a signature and operate between 9am and 5pm on weekdays, so please specify an address where someone will be able to sign for your order between these hours, alternatively have your order delivered to your work address. Our courier services are fully trackable.
Please note that any items sent by Royal Mail usually arrive within 1-3 days, Royal Mail stipulate that only items still not delivered after 15 working days can be officially classified as lost.
SBC will make every effort to deliver within the time stated but we will not be liable for any loss caused to you by late delivery, so please try to order with enough time to prevent disappointment particulary in the busy Christmas season.
Delivery outside the EU may be subject to local import taxes, which are your responsibility where they apply. If so, the shipping company should advise you the charges due or else you should consult your local customs office.
The above does affect your statutory rights as a consumer.
