Sue Ryder is a responsible retailer and as such we will not sell knives, scissors, alcohol or any other age restricted goods to anyone under the age of 18 therefore we require your date of birth if you wish to purchase age restricted goods.
Your submission of an order represents an offer to purchase the products indicated by you, and is not binding on us until we have accepted your order. This means that if a product is shown on the website but becomes unavailable, is incorrectly priced, incorrectly described or if we are unable to arrange delivery to your country or region, we will have no legal obligation to sell you that product.
Shortly after we receive your order, we will send you an acknowledgement via email. This email is issued automatically and does not mean that your order has been accepted.
Acceptance of your order and completion of the contract between you and us will occur at the point at which we dispatch the product to you. Any products on the same order which we have not dispatched to you do not form part of that contract.
If we cannot accept your order for any reason, we will contact you to explain why, and we will re-credit your credit or debit card with the full amount of any sums debited in respect of any part of the order we have not accepted.
We do not file details of your order for you to subsequently access direct from this website, and so please print out these Terms and the order acknowledgement for your own records.
All sizes and dimensions of products as indicated on this website are approximate but we make every effort to make sure they are as accurate as possible.
We have made every effort to display as accurately as possible the colours of the images that appear on the website. However, as the actual colours you see will depend on your monitor, we cannot guarantee that your monitor's display of any colour will accurately reflect the colour of the product on delivery.
Price and payment
Prices of products listed on our website are inclusive of any VAT, where applicable, which may be payable by you. All prices displayed on the website are quoted in UK Pounds Sterling. Delivery charges are quoted separately and the amount of delivery charge payable will be shown as part of the order form before you complete your order. Delivery charges are available in the Delivery section. If the products are to be delivered outside the UK, you will become responsible for any applicable customs duties or taxes in that country.
We reserve the right to change prices listed without giving prior notice.
The price you pay is the price displayed on this website at the time we receive your order except in instances in which an error has occurred in displaying the price. Whilst we make every effort to ensure that all prices on our website are accurate, errors may occur. If we discover an error in the price of products you have ordered we will inform you as soon as possible and give you the option of reconfirming your order at the correct price or cancelling it. If we are unable to contact you we will treat the order as cancelled. If you cancel and you have already paid for the products, you will receive a full refund.

We make every effort to deliver products within the estimated timescales, however delays are occasionally inevitable. If you do not receive your goods within the time quoted, please contact customer services team.
