You also promise that all the information you have provided is accurate and true. You authorise us to perform validation checks and authorisation with the card issuer.
You agree to fully indemnify us, our officers, employees, agents and suppliers, immediately on demand, from and against all claims, liability, damages, losses, costs and expenses arising out of breach by you of these terms and conditions or by your use of this website, or the use of any other person accessing this website using your shopping account or personal information.
All prices stated on the website are inclusive of VAT where applicable, but exclusive of shipping charges, unless we tell you otherwise. Prices and availability of products may be changed at any time without notice. The price at which you agree to purchase the products is the price stated on this website at the time you place your order.
We make every effort to ensure that the images of the products on our website are accurate. However because of differences between monitors the colour you see of the product may not accurately reflect its true colour.
7. CARE INSTRUCTIONS
When a product has care instructions, you must follow these instructions. We are not liable for any loss or damage in the event the instructions have not been followed.
We will take all reasonable steps to ensure that your credit card and debit card information (Confidential Information) is kept secure. However unless we have been negligent, we are not liable for any losses arising from unauthorised access by a third party to your Confidential Information.
9. HOW THE CONTRACT IS FORMED BETWEEN YOU AND US
After placing an order, you will receive an e-mail from us (sent to the email address that you have provided when placing your order) acknowledging that we have received your order. Please note that this does not mean that your order has been accepted. Your order constitutes an offer to us to buy a product. All orders are subject to acceptance by us, and we will confirm such acceptance to you by sending you an e-mail that confirms that the product has been dispatched (the “Dispatch Confirmation”). The contract between us (the “Contract”) will only be formed when we send you the Dispatch Confirmation.
The Contract will relate only to those products whose dispatch we have confirmed in the Dispatch Confirmation. We will not be obliged to supply any other products which may have been part of your order until the dispatch of such products has been confirmed in a separate Dispatch Confirmation.
Please note, once you have placed an order with us, we are unable to amend it.
Where payment is made by a credit or debit card, you authorise us to debit your card with the total cost of the products selected including VAT and delivery charges. Any refunds made in respect of returns or cancellations will be made to the same card. Where payment has not been made in full, we may cancel your order and/or suspend any further deliveries to you.

15. EVENTS OUTSIDE OUR CONTROL
We will not be liable or responsible for any failure to perform, or delay in performance of, any of our obligations under a Contract that is caused by events outside our reasonable control (“Force Majeure Event”).
A Force Majeure Event includes any act, event, non-happening, omission or accident beyond our reasonable control and includes in particular without limitation the following:

(b) civil commotion, riot, invasion, terrorist attack or threat of terrorist attack, war (whether declared or not) or threat or preparation for war.
(c) fire, explosion, storm, flood, earthquake, subsidence, epidemic or other natural disaster.
(d) impossibility of the use of railways, shipping, aircraft, motor transport or other means of public or private transport.
(e) impossibility of the use of public or private telecommunications networks.

Our performance under any Contract is deemed to be suspended for the period that the Force Majeure Event continues, and we will have an extension of time for performance for the duration of that period. We will use our reasonable endeavours to bring the Force Majeure Event to a close or to find a solution by which our obligations under the Contract may be performed despite the Force Majeure Event.
(a) Hit the Trail may, from time to time, offer promotions or incentives. These are at the sole discretion of the Management of Blomster Designs Limited and can be removed at any time without prior notice.

Gift Cards expire 12 months after the date of purchase.
Any Gift Card presented after their expiry date will be treated as void.
Gift Cards are non-refundable and cannot be exchanged for cash. No change will be given.
If returning an item bought by gift card or credit note, you will be entitled to a new gift card or credit note. You will not be entitled to a cash refund.
A refund on an order that was partially paid by gift card and bank card will always be refunded back to the gift card. Once the original value is reinstated on the gift card, any additional funds will go to the bank account, not a cheque guarantee, credit or charge card.
Orders for Gift Cards cannot be cancelled, except in accordance with your legal rights.
Gift Cards should be treated as cash and as such we cannot replace lost, stolen or damaged Gift Cards.
We reserve the right to refuse a Gift Card which is deemed to have been tampered with, duplicated, damaged or which otherwise is suspected to be affected from fraud.
Gift Cards are digitally generated and usually emailed to the e-mail address of your choice within an hour of purchase, however, to protect against fraud, payment checks may be made which can cause a delay in the Gift Card being issued.
Gift cards can be purchased for any value between £5 and £1000 and can be redeemed across multiple purchases until the balance is used.

The sponsorship programme is for members of the Scouting Association working towards their Top Award Challenges. After a successful application, the following terms and conditions apply to all members of the party (‘the Scouting team’) involved, and will be fully explained before any equipment is lent:
The sponsorship does not involve the giving of any monies by Hit the Trail, and is limited to the lending of technical equipment for an agreed period of time.
In return for the lending of equipment, it is the responsibility of the Scouting team to advertise the partnership between the team and Hit the Trail, on all of their fundraising and general communications. Appropriate literature and logos will be provided for this. In addition, it is expected by Hit the Trail, that the Scouting team promote the partnership via social media, showing the items used during their activities and tagging Hit the Trail in such posts.
The delivery cost of all loaned equipment will be covered by Hit the Trail.
All equipment must be returned in a usable condition and in the same packaging it was lent in. The cost of the return is to be covered by the Scouting team.
Any equipment that is not returned within the agreed loan period, may face a penalty charge.
If any equipment is returned in a condition deemed to require deep cleaning, then the cost is the responsibility of the Scouting team.
If any equipment is returned damaged, then it is the obligation of the Scouting team to pay the full cost price at the point of return.
If any part of these conditions is invalid, illegal or unenforceable (including any provisions in which we exclude our liability to you), the validity, legality or enforceability of any other part of these conditions will not be affected. This agreement is governed by English law.
We do not give any contractual rights to third parties, and the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999 will not apply to any contract between us.
