4.1 General Provisions & Content
4.1.1 These Terms create an agreement between you and us and determine the terms and conditions of use for this Website and for the purchase of goods on this Website.
4.1.2 The purpose of this Website is to present our company, its background, its products and services. We also provide an on-line shop, where customers can buy a range of BELT DESIGNS products to be delivered nationally and internationally. Although we have endeavoured to make sure that all content is correct and up-to date, some minor errors may appear, for which we cannot be held responsible. Moreover, because this Website is accessible from many parts of the World, it is in your interest to ensure that viewing the content of this Website or using our services does not infringe local laws.
4.2 Descriptions & Product Information
4.2.1 Although we endeavour to give as accurate and complete descriptions as possible of the Goods sold on this Website, we cannot be held responsible for the minor errors that may occur.
4.2.2 Moreover, we have taken as many product pictures as possible, from different angles, to show you as many product features as possible and to help you choose the right Goods to purchase. However, due to different screen resolutions and the complexity of some colours and photography angles, we cannot guarantee that what you see on screen will accurately reflect the actual Goods.
In the unlikely event that you should not be satisfied with the Goods that you receive, please refer to our Returns Policy below in clause 4.6.
4.2.3 Our products are made from aniline vegetable tanned leather. This is one of the most natural types of leather and is considered to be a very high quality product within the leather industry. Soluble dyes are used in aniline leather that penetrate the hide giving the leather its rich colour. In order to maintain the natural feel and look of the hide no protective coating or surface pigmentation is applied. Additionally, the leathers maintain their natural markings and texture which contributes to the authenticity of the leather. However, the lack of treatment might render the leathers more susceptible to scratching, staining, or fading and might show some colour variations on the surface of the hide. Also due to the type of dyes used in Aniline leather the colour can sometimes transfer from the leather to other items particularly lighter garments. Therefore please note that we cannot guarantee this will not occur when wearing or using our products. Belt Designs accepts no liability with regards to colour transfer from any of our articles.
4.3 Purchasing, Pricing & Tax
4.3.1 All prices shown on our Website are in UK Sterling (£, GBP). The price displayed is the price paid by all purchasers.

4.3.3 To purchase a product, simply click on the appropriate button to add it to your shopping bag, then continue browsing and/or access your basket to check out. Then simply follow the guidelines on each new page to review your selected Goods, set the billing and delivery details and finally pay for the Goods via the secure e-commerce gateway or Paypal.
4.3.4 All information on our Website is an invitation to treat only and is not an offer or unilateral contract. Your order represents an offer by you to purchase the Goods. We will acknowledge receipt of your order without delay by sending a confirmation email. Please note however that such confirmation email does not constitute acceptance of your order. We do hold most items in stock but we sometimes make to order and therefore there may be a small waiting time of a few days before we can despatch your goods.
4.3.5 The sale will only be binding on us once we have notified you that the order is accepted and the Goods have been despatched by us.
