Our website describes the Products in more detail.
2.2 Please note that our website is available only to individuals that can form legally binding contracts under applicable law.

3. Buying Products on our website
3.1 To order Products you will need to follow the ordering procedures set out here. Details of our prices for the Products, and the procedures for payment and delivery are displayed on our website.
3.2 Any times or dates stated on our website for delivery are estimates only. We will make all reasonable efforts to deliver the Products within the time specified, but do not accept liability for any failure to deliver within that time.
3.3 You must pay by credit or debit card at the time of order. Products will not be dispatched to you until we are in receipt of cleared funds. The price of any Product is the price in force at the date and time of your order. We may change the price of any Product before you place an order. We try to ensure that our prices displayed on our website are accurate but the price on your order will need to be validated by us as part of the acceptance procedure (see clause 3.4 below). We will inform you if a Product’s correct price is higher than that stated in your order and you may cancel the order and decide whether or not to order the product at the correct price. If your credit card has already been charged we will immediately issue a credit to your credit card account to the value of the incorrect price ( including delivery charges ). The prices are inclusive of applicable taxes.
3.4 We are entitled to refuse any order placed by you or to cancel and refund an order at any time. If your order is accepted, we will confirm acceptance to you by online electronic means (‘Confirmation’) to the e-mail address you have given us on ordering. The order will then be fulfilled by the date set out in the Confirmation or, if the Confirmation does not contain such a date, within 14 days.
3.5 You undertake that all details you provide to us for the purpose of purchasing the Products offered by us on our website will be correct, that the credit or debit card, which you use is your own, or you are authorised to use it and that there are sufficient funds or credit facilities to cover the cost of any Products. We reserve the right to obtain validation of your credit or debit card details before providing you with any Products.
3.6 All Products and services are subject to availability and may be withdrawn at any time. If we do not supply the Products for any reason we will not charge you and we will refund any money already paid by you.
3.7 All Products we supply are covered by the terms and conditions of the manufacturers or networks guarantee for twelve months. This guarantee excludes faults caused by accident, neglect and misuse.

4. Delivery of the Products to you
4.1 We use Royal Mail to deliver Products to you. Full details of delivery charges and times are available elsewhere on this website.
If you would like to check the status of your order, simply email firstname.lastname@example.org
4.2 If for any reason the Products are returned to us, you will be responsible for paying for a recorded method of delivery to ensure safe transit of the Products.
4.3 Delivery will usually be made to the cardholders address. This ensures that cards cannot be used at 0044.co.uk to make purchases for anyone but the card owner. It is our way of using our best endeavours to eliminate fraud.
4.4 However we can arrange for delivery of the Products to another address if expressly requested by you such as a hotel. If we do deliver to a notified address which is not the cardholders address we will not be responsible for the safe keeping of any Products supplied to you as directed whilst such products are in the custody of the alternative delivery address you have notified to us. We will not provide any refund or any other compensation if the Products are not so held at the alternative delivery address you have notified to us.
4.5 Overnight deliveries must be signed for and dated at the address for which they are consigned. Prior to signing you must check that the Products are received undamaged. In the highly unlikely event that Products are delivered to you damaged, it is your responsibility to ensure that you add a brief statement addressing this damage together with your signature and date on the carrier’s delivery notes. You must also inform us by contacting our delivery department at email@example.com within two days of receipt of the Products.
4.6 Delivery prices quoted are for delivery to the UK mainland. We will deliver to Northern Ireland (BT), Isle of Man (IM), Scottish Highlands and Orkney Isles (PA,ML,EH,KA,G,KY,PH,DD) and the Outer Hebrides and the Shetland Isles (HS,ZE) but such deliveries will incur additional charges and may be subject to delay. You may email us for a quotation. AM/PM and Saturday deliveries are optional and will also incur additional charges. Full details of such charges can be obtained by emailing us.
4.7 If the Products are temporarily out of stock we will notify you of this position and you should allow up to fourteen days for dispatch of the Products. Where delivery is delayed for more than fourteen days you will have the right to cancel the order and we will refund any money paid by you for the Products.
4.8 If an order takes longer to arrive at the required delivery address than stipulated on the 0044 web site then the company will refund the value of the SIM card amount after 15 business days from date of order if the item has still not arrived, or when the delayed item can be returned in a new condition to the company, if it arrives later than required. If the item requires urgent replacement prior to the 15 business days lapsing then the customer must pay for another item and the company may upgrade the delivery to the overnight option at their discretion. Once the 15 business days has lapsed, or the delayed original item can be returned in a new condition then the company will refund the original purchase price of the SIM card.
There are a number of circumstances in which the products may be returned;
5.1 You may return any Products you have purchased together with any accessories and any supplied free gifts within seven working days of delivery for any reason (including if you simply change your mind). To do so you must notify us in writing or e-mail within those 7 working days. You will then be entitled to a refund from us, which will be paid as soon as possible, but in any event within 30 days. You must arrange for and pay the costs of both any applicable bank charges incurred by us and the costs of returning the Products to us on request. While in your possession, you must keep any Products you intend to return to us in good condition. The Products must be as new, unopened, unused and be in their original packaging and have the original manuals and accessories. If the Products are returned in a condition other than as new and unused you will not be entitled to a refund and the cost of the Products will be charged to you. If the Products are returned without manuals and accessories the cost of such items will be charged to you. Upon receipt of your cancellation notice we will issue you with a Returns Authorisation Number which will be valid for fourteen days. In circumstances where Products are returned to us which are not faulty we reserve the right to charge a five pound (£5.00 GBP) restocking charge for receiving the parcel, inspecting it and restocking it.
5.2 If the Products are said to be ‘dead on arrival’ such that they present symptoms of software failure which prevents basic operation upon their first use you should contact our customer support helpline within seven days of the day the Products were delivered to you. You may then return the Products to us.
Upon our receipt of the Products and confirmation of the fault by our technical engineers we will offer you either;
5.2.1 Replacement Products which will be dispatched to you at your our cost; or
5.2.2 A full refund provided that the Products have been verified as faulty by our technical engineers and are returned with their original packaging, manuals and accessories.
Upon our receipt of the Products and confirmation that no fault exists by our technical engineers we will offer you either;
5.2.3 Return of the Products and the costs of return will be charged to you; or

5.3 If the Products are damaged whilst in general use they must be referred to the appropriate mobile phone network for replacement or repair. We will not provide any refund for Products which are damaged in this way.
