Terms and Conditions

We pride ourselves on our service and products and have many systems and quality checks in place to ensure you are completely satisfied.

We fully comply with UK Distance Selling Regulations.

We hope to never need to resort to the 'small print' but here it is, just in case, so that both parties know exactly where we stand!

Full Terms of Business

'We', 'us' or 'the company' means Dive-Logs Ltd
'You', 'the customer' or 'the buyer' means the person, company or entity contracting to purchase the goods.
'The goods' are the items that you order from us as specified by our order acknowledgement and on our invoice.

Order Acceptance
We can receive orders via the company's web site, by phone, mail or e-mail using the contact methods published on our web site or in other publicity materials. We reserve the right to refuse to accept orders or to require additional confirmation at our discretion. We acknowledge receipt of your orders via an appropriate communication: For example, web-based orders are acknowledged automatically by e-mail, telephone orders are acknowledged verbally at time of order. Orders placed by telephone are accepted when the order is placed and a contract of sale then exists between us and you from that time. If orders are placed by mail or via our web site, no contract exists between you and the company until our official invoice has been issued.

If we acknowledge an order but, for some reason outside our control, we are unable to complete the transaction within 28 days then any payment made will be refunded immediately if you ask us to do so. Refunds due against returned goods will be paid as soon as the returned goods are received by us, subject to the goods being received in unused, undamaged condition in their original packaging.

We endeavour to ensure that all published prices are correct, however we reserve the right to change prices without notice and not to accept orders at prices that have been quoted in error. Prices are quoted in three currencies. Pounds Sterling, Euros, and US Dollars. Prices in Euros and US Dollars are calculated using typical exchange rates but we have no control over the exchange rate that will be applied by your credit card or bank and so you should expect the final payment to vary slightly.
