Pants People, its slogan “nuts about underwear” and other marks that may be indicated on our website are trademarks or registered trademarks in the European Union and/or other jurisdictions. Our graphics, logos, page headers, button icons, scripts and service names are the trademarks or trade dress of Pants People.

7. Our Contract

You are seeking to enter into a contract with Pants People when you place an order. When you place an order to buy a product from our website, we will send you an e-mail which contains information on your order and confirms receipt of your order. Your order represents your offer to us to purchase a product and when we despatch that product to you, we accept your offer. We will confirm your order by e-mail. Our acceptance will be complete at the time we send the product(s) to you. Any products on the same order, which we have confirmed will be dispatched separately from the rest of your order do not form part of that contract.  
We reserve the right to cancel any order where full payment is not received.

8. Returns & Refunds

Our Returns & Refunds policy can be viewed here and it applies to all products purchased from us. In addition to our policy, customers in the European Union are entitled to a statutory cooling-off period of seven business days.

Under the EU’s Distance Selling Regulations, you have the right to cancel the contract for the purchase within seven working days from receipt of your delivery, without giving a reason.

To cancel, you need to do so in writing. You will need to e-mail us, quote the order number and give us your clear instruction to cancel your order.

The above is subject to the product being returned unworn, unused and unwashed, in its original packaging and in a saleable condition (as new). You are responsible for the safe return of the product in its original condition and any costs of return.

The address for returns is Pants People HQ, Returns & Refunds, 13 Calvert Road, Barnet EN5 4HH, United Kingdom

We will refund the relevant part of the purchase price for the returned order as soon as possible, but in any case within 30 days after we receive your notification.

9. Pricing and Availability

In general, if a product, size or colour is unavailable, you will be unable to order it on the website. On rare occasions, it may appear that a product on the website is available when it is out of stock. This is due to the fact that certain products can sell out quickly and there may be a slight delay before this is reflected on the website. However depending on our restocking plans and availability, products may become available again. We will inform you by e-mail if any product you order is out of stock, and if appropriate, when it is likely to be back in stock.

Delivery estimates are merely estimates not guaranteed delivery times and must not be relied upon as such.

10. Customs

Overseas deliveries may be subject to import duties and taxes, levied once the package reaches its destination. You, the recipient, must bear any additional charges for customs clearance. Unfortunately, we have no control over these charges so you should contact the local customs office for further information. The recipient is considered the importer of record and must comply with all laws and regulations of the country in which the goods are received. Cross-border deliveries may be subject to opening and inspection by customs authorities.

11. Children

If you are under the age of 18, you may use our website only with the involvement of a parent or guardian. We do not sell any products for purchase by children.

12. Alteration of Service and Amendments to Our Terms and Conditions of Sale (“our terms”)

We reserve the right to make changes to our website, policies, and our terms at any time. You are subject to the policies and our terms in force at the time that you use the website or order goods from us (unless any change to the policies or our terms is required by law or government authority, in which case it will apply to orders already placed by you). If any of our terms is deemed invalid, void, or for any reason unenforceable, that term will be deemed severable and will not affect the validity and enforceability of the remaining terms.

13. Events beyond our reasonable control

We cannot be held responsible for any delay or failure to comply with our obligations under these terms if the delay or failure arises from any cause beyond our reasonable control. This does not affect your statutory rights, however.

14. No Waiver

In the event that we take no action against you where there is a breach of any of these terms by you, we reserve the right to make use of all available rights and remedies and any relinquishment or surrender in this respect does not constitute a waiver of our rights. We will still be entitled to use our rights and remedies in any other situation where you breach these terms.

15. Cookies

We use cookies as part of the mechanism to hold a reference to certain data on the server that holds the contents of the shopping cart, as well as other user-specific data including your username, and as such we require both permanent and session cookies to be enabled. There is no requirement to have third party cookies enabled for our website to work. If third party cookies are not accepted it does not affect the functionality of our website.

16. Opting in / out

We may from time to time offer you the opportunity to receive regular e-mails, offers or online vouchers. These opportunities are either opt-in or opt-out. Each opportunity will explicitly state whether it is opt-in or opt-out. If you have any queries about this you can contact us here.

17. Dispute Resolution

In case of any dispute, please e-mail us or write to us at Pants People HQ, 13 Calvert Road, Barnet EN5 4HH, United Kingdom.

18. Website Security

We strive to adhere to and to adopt industry standard practices in order to protect the confidentiality of your personal information on the website, including firewalls and Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) encryption software.

Your payment goes to a secure third party payment processing company. For further information see paragraph 27 below - Payment Methods.

23.    Back orders

In certain cases, if we are out of stock on a particular product, size or colour but are expecting further deliveries from the designer brand, the website may still allow you to place an order for it, and if so, we will inform you when the new stock is likely to arrive.

The wait time for new stock is usually 2 - 3 weeks, but may sometimes be shorter or longer. If it is longer than 3 weeks, we will notify you at the time and offer you the option of either continuing to wait or cancelling your order.

Unfortunately, designer brands do sometimes discontinue lines with no advance warning. We cannot control this, but we will always let you know if we are unable to fulfil your order.

If part of your order is out of stock, we will split the items and ship what we can to you immediately - subject to your payment being processed of course.

We never take any payment from your card until the goods are ready to be dispatched.

You will also only be charged once for shipping and gift wrapping (if you have chosen the “Surprise Gift” option), regardless of whether we have to split your order. If you have selected “Surprise Gift” and your order has to be split, then all separate shipments will be gift wrapped too. We will however only send one gift card which will be shipped with the first part of the gift wrapped order.

24.    Delivery Information

We will ship your order as soon as we can, subject to payment authorisation and stock availability.

You will only be charged once per order for delivery and gift wrapping (if applicable) however many separate shipments we split your order into.

If you order before 2pm on Monday to Friday, then your order will be dispatched the same day. If your order is made after this time (or at any time during the weekend or on a UK public holiday) your goods will be dispatched the next working day.
