If you have any questions regarding the Website or these terms and conditions, or in the unlikely event that you have any complaints about any products purchased by you from the Website, you can contact us by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Use of website
You may access and use the Website for your personal, non-commercial use on the Terms and Conditions outlined here.
Woodcraft By Ruth reserves the right at any time to modify, alter, amend or update these Terms and Conditions. Every time you wish to order products, please check these Terms and Conditions to ensure you understand the terms which will apply at that time.
For legal reasons we can only sell products via this Website to individuals aged 18 or over. If you are under 18 you must involve a parent or guardian when placing orders online using the Website.
This Website is for use only by individuals who access it from within the United Kingdom (“UK”). If you choose to access the Website from locations outside the UK, you are responsible for compliance with local laws if and to the extent they apply.
The following additional policies also form part of these Terms and Conditions and should be read carefully before placing an order:
- Cookies Policy
You agree to fully indemnify, defend and hold us and suppliers, harmless immediately on demand, from and against all claims, liability, damages, losses, costs and expenses, including reasonable legal fees, arising out of any breach of the Terms and Conditions by you or any other liabilities arising out of your use of the Website, or the use by any other person accessing the Website using the Contact Us or messaging forms and/or your personal information.
Placing an order
By placing an order with us you agree to and accept these Terms and Conditions. If you are unhappy with any aspect of these Terms and Conditions, please email us at email@example.com
Please ensure the details you provide us with on registration are correct and complete and inform us promptly of any changes to those details (e.g. change of email or postal address).
The contract between us
By placing an order you are making an offer to Woodcraft By Ruth to buy the products at the agreed price as well as any applicable delivery charges. We only accept your order when we have confirmed availability and have processed the payment successfully. A contract between you and Woodcraft By Ruth for the sale and delivery of our products will only exist once an order has been accepted, processed and dispatched to you. If an item within your order is not available we will contact you.
Acceptance of online orders
When you have placed an order to purchase the products, an order acknowledgement email will be sent to you summarising the products you have ordered. Please note that this email is merely an acknowledgement of your order and not an acceptance or confirmation of your order by Woodcraft By Ruth.
We accept your order for a product when we send you an email confirming that we have dispatched the products in your order (“Dispatch Note”). The contract between us is formed at the point we send you a Dispatch Note for those items detailed in the Dispatch Note email. If your order contained a number of products and the Dispatch Note mentions only some of them, those items which have yet to be dispatched to you do not form part of that contract
We only accept your order when we have confirmed availability and have received payment successfully. Non-acceptance of an order by us will occur if the ordered Product is out of stock, unavailable or deemed unsuitable by Woodcraft By Ruth. Please note the unsuitability of a product does not need to be explained in full. If we identify a pricing or product description error, and are not meeting the eligibility of the order criteria set out in these Terms and Conditions or we are unable to obtain authorisation - should we have taken payment from you prior to non-acceptance of your order then you will be refunded but please note that it can take up to 5 working days for the bank to transfer funds to you.
If for any reason the Products you ordered are no longer available we will at our discretion either: offer you an alternative item of equivalent quality and price (where this is possible); or cancel the Product from your order and where payment has already been deducted from your account give you a full refund in respect of that item.
The contract will be concluded in English and the details of your specific contract will not be filed by Woodcraft By Ruth.
We only sell to the UK. Our Website is solely for the promotion of our Products in the UK. Unfortunately we do not accept orders from or deliver to addresses outside the UK.
Payment in full, including postage & packaging, is required when an order is placed. Payment can be by PayPal or direct bank transfer.
Receipt of your payment does not constitute our acceptance of your order. Acceptance of your order occurs when we issue to you a Dispatch Note email (see the “Contract between us” section above). You are responsible for ensuring the email address and other contact details you provide to us are correct. We will not be responsible if you do not receive the Dispatch Note email or other confirmation from us where the details you have supplied are incorrect or in the event of communication system failures outside our control.
Please note that we cannot guarantee the security of data which you send us by email.
We will take reasonable care, in so far as it is in our power to do so, to keep the details of your order and payment secure but unless we are fraudulent or negligent we will not be liable to you for any losses caused as a result of unauthorised access to the personal and transactional information you provide us when placing an order.
The price of the products will be in line with the price quoted during the consultation process when you place your order.
Our delivery charges are as advised to you during the ordering process, before you confirm your order unless otherwise stated.
It is always possible that, despite our reasonable efforts, the initial price quoted may be incorrect. If we discover an error in the price of the products you have ordered we will contact you to inform you of this error and we will give you the option of continuing to purchase the products at the correct price or cancelling your order. Your order will not be processed until we have your instructions. If we are unable to contact you using the contact details you provided during the order process, we will treat the order as cancelled and notify you in writing. If we mistakenly accept and process your order where a pricing error is obvious and unmistakable and could reasonably have been recognised by you as a mis-pricing, we may cancel supply of the products and refund you any sums you have paid.
Prices for our products may change from time to time without notice, but changes will not affect any order you have already placed. Woodcraft By Ruth reserves the right to update prices where it is deemed necessary from time to time without prior notice.
Postage & Packaging charges
For details please read the Woodcraft By Ruth delivery and returns policy
We are unable to process orders to a P.O. Box address.
Please note that the value of goods ordered is inclusive of VAT where applicable and we cannot refund any VAT charges.
Cancellation Right and Returns Policy
You have a legal right under the Consumer Contracts Regulations 2013 to change your mind and cancel your order from the date of the Dispatch Note (the date on which we email you to confirm our acceptance of your order) until the date which is 14 days after the day on which you receive the Products. If you are not happy with your purchase, simply return the unused Products to us at the address below in the original condition. Please include a copy of the original delivery note or proof of purchase and a message with your contact number stating you wish to make a return.
By original condition we mean (i) you have kept all original packaging and labels in good condition and the product can be resold at full price (ii) you have not used the product and (iii) the product contains no personal data.
If your Products are split into different deliveries over different days, you have until 14 days after the day you receive the last delivery to change your mind about the Products.
To exercise your right of cancellation, you must inform us of your decision to cancel your contract by a clear statement, including details of your name, address, details of your order you wish to cancel, and where available, your phone number and email address. You can cancel by email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Where applicable, please keep a copy of your cancellation notification for your own records. We will email you to confirm that we have received your cancellation.
If the Products have already been dispatched to you or you have already received them, you must return them to us without undue delay and in any event not later than 14 days after the day on which you communicate your cancellation of your order to us. All Products must be returned via Royal Mail, or other responsible carriers, at your cost together with proof of purchase, unused, unopened and in a saleable condition, to receive an exchange or refund.
When returning Products you are strongly recommended to obtain proof of posting in the event that the Products go missing, as Products remain your responsibility until we receive them. Proof of posting will assist you in tracking any shipment which is reported as lost, damaged, mislaid or otherwise undelivered. Please take reasonable care of the products while in your possession and when returning the products, package properly and securely and label them properly to prevent damage or loss in transit.
Once your Products have been received, we will confirm this to you by email, assuming you have given us your email address. If, after sending your return to us, you have not received our email confirmation within 3 days, please contact us by email at email@example.com so we can investigate.
Any Products returned which show signs the item has been used will not be replaced or refunded.
If you cancel your contract, we will refund you the price you paid for the Products and any delivery costs you have paid, although, as permitted by law, the maximum refund will be the costs of delivery by the least expensive delivery method we offer. For example, if we offer delivery of a Product within 2-3 working days at one cost but you choose to have the product delivered within 24 hours at a higher cost, then we will only refund what you would have paid for the cheaper delivery option.
Please note we are permitted by law to reduce your refund to reflect any reduction in the value of Products, if this has been caused by your handling them in a way which would not be permitted in a shop (or you can choose to have such Products returned to you within 14 days of our notification that we intend to make a deduction).
Refunds will be made as soon as possible and in any event within 14 days after the day on which we receive the Products back from you or, if earlier, the day on which you provide us with evidence that you have sent the Products back to us. We will refund you using the same method as the original payment, where appropriate.
Exchanges and refunds
For details please read the Woodcraft By Ruth delivery and returns policy
If you have chosen a refund, we will process the calculated refund (minus your deposit, VAT and delivery costs); please be aware that we will only process a refund once the item has been returned and checked by us and this can take up to 30 days.
If you have requested an exchange the process time will depend upon the bespoke work you have commissioned and will vary from case to case. Therefore we will discuss this in more detail upon receipt and inspection of your returned goods.
Any goods returned which show signs the item has been damaged or mis-used will not be refunded.
All goods are checked thoroughly before leaving for their destination. It is your responsibility to check and immediately report to Woodcraft By Ruth any damage or defect to the products.
On the rare occasion that you may receive goods that are faulty, damaged or not what you ordered, then you can return the item under our normal return procedure for replacements or refund. Please contact us within 14 days of delivery and we will help you resolve any issues as quickly as possible.
Once the products you wish to return have been received by us, a refund for the agreed amount will be actioned to the original payment method. Please allow 14 days from return for this process to be completed.
Which Products cannot be returned
Whether exercising your legal right to cancel or returning a Product under our returns policy set out in these Terms and Conditions, you do not have a right to return/cancel your order in respect of Products sealed for health protection or hygiene purposes once you have unsealed them. For example toiletries or beauty products.
This does not, however, affect your statutory rights in relation to such Products if they are faulty or damaged when you receive them (see below) or if they are Products that you have been sent in error. If you have any questions please contact Woodcraft By Ruth (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Faulty or damaged goods
All Products are checked thoroughly before leaving for their destination. It is your responsibility to check and immediately report to Woodcraft By Ruth any damage or defect to the Products.

Please allow 14 days from return for this process to be completed.
Damage & Loss in transit
Woodcraft By Ruth does not accept liability for any delays or damages once the goods have left us and are in possession of the carriers.
Goods should be inspected on receipt of delivery, and damages to be advised in writing within 3 working days of delivery, so that we can arrange replacement goods and start following up with our carrier.
If you do receive damaged goods, please retain all relevant documentation so that an insurance claim can be made against the carrier.
