This website is operated by WOMEN'S FOOTBALL MERCHANDISE LTD (we or us), a company registered in England and Wales. Our registered office is at Empress Business Centre, 380 Chester Road, Manchester M16 9EA.

These are the terms and conditions (Terms) under which we sell the products on our website (Products) and will apply to any contract between us for the sale of Products to you. Please read these Terms carefully before you place your order.

These Terms were last updated in January 2022. 

1               How we use your personal information 

1.1           See Privacy Policy (scroll down)

2               Communications between us

2.1           You can contact us by completing the contact form on our website or by writing to us at hello@foudys.com. Please contain as much information as possible in your query. 

2.2           If we have to contact you, we will do so using the contact details you provided to us in your order, unless you have asked us to contact you by any other means.

3               Our Products

3.1           The images of the Products on our website and in our other advertising materials are for illustrative purposes only. The Products you purchase and receive may vary slightly from those images. Although we have made every effort to display and print the colours and finish of the Products accurately, we cannot guarantee that your computer's display of the pictures, or the pictures in our other advertising materials, accurately reflect the colours and finish of the Products that will be delivered to you. The packaging of Products may vary from that shown on the images on our website or in our other advertising materials. All our products are purchased from official vendors. 

4               Our contract with you

4.1           You may only purchase Products from us if you are legally capable of entering into a binding contract with us (for example, in England and Wales you must be at least 18 years old), and a resident in a country to which we deliver – please see our FAQs page for more information. 

4.2           All orders placed via our website are subject to these Terms. By ordering Products through our website, you are deemed to have understood and accepted these Terms.

4.3           We may send you an order acknowledgement email following receipt of your order. This email does not constitute acceptance of your order. Acceptance of your order will only take place when we despatch your order to you, at which point a contract will come into existence between you and us, unless we notify you that we are unable to accept your order in accordance with clause 4.4 below.

4.4           If we are unable to accept your order or we are unable to supply any Products in your order we will inform you of this. If you have already paid for the order, we will refund you for the amount paid for the order or affected Product(s) (as applicable).

5               Price

5.1           The price of the Products is set out on our website. We take all reasonable care to ensure that the prices of Products on our website are correct. However, it is always possible that, despite our best efforts, some of the Products we sell may be incorrectly priced. If, before dispatch of a Product, we discover that the Product’s correct price at the date of your order is higher than the price stated on our website when you placed your order, we will contact you as soon as possible to inform you of this error and we will give you the option of continuing with the order at the correct price or cancelling your order. If we accept and process your order where such a pricing error is obvious and unmistakeable and could reasonably have been recognised by you as a mispricing, we may end the contract, refund you any sums you have paid and require the return of any Products provided to you.

5.2           All prices are shown in pounds sterling. The price of a Product includes VAT (where applicable) at the relevant current rate chargeable for the time being. However, if the rate of VAT changes between the date of your order and the date of delivery, we will adjust the VAT you pay, unless you have already paid for the Products in full before the change in VAT takes effect. 

6               Payment

6.1           The accepted payment methods are set out at the bottom of our website.

6.2           We will take payment from your chosen payment method at the time your order is placed. 

6.3           If you wish to make payment using a voucher or gift card, it is your responsibility to enter the correct code during the online checkout process. Please note that the use of such vouchers and gift cards may be subject to additional terms and conditions provided with such voucher or gift card.

6.4           If you order Products for delivery to a destination outside the UK, your order may be subject to import duties and taxes which are applied when it reaches the delivery destination. Please note that we have no control over these charges and you will be responsible for payment of any such import duties and taxes

7               Delivery

7.1           The costs of delivery, the locations we deliver to, and the estimated delivery times are set out in our FAQs

7.2           Depending on your chosen delivery location and delivery method, you may be required to sign for a delivery or there may be other requirements for accepting delivery. If our delivery partner is unable to deliver the Products, our delivery partner will leave you a note or contact you to inform you how to rearrange delivery or to let you know if the Products will need to be collected from a local depot.

7.3           Where our delivery partner has attempted and failed to deliver the Products to you and you do not re-arrange delivery or collect your Products from the delivery depot where they are being held, in accordance with the instructions provided, the Products may be returned to us by the delivery partner, and we may end the contract with you. If we have to end the contract in these circumstances, we will refund the price you paid for the Products but we may deduct from the refund the delivery charges paid by you for the delivery of the Products to you, and any costs charged to us by our delivery partner for returning the Products to us.

7.4           Delivery of your order shall be complete when we deliver the Products to the address you gave us or to a person identified by you to take delivery of the Products (such as a neighbour) and the Products will be your responsibility from that time.

7.5           You will own the Products once we have received payment in full.

 

 

 

 

8             Other important terms

8.1         Nothing in these Terms shall affect your rights as a consumer under the applicable law in the jurisdiction in which you reside.

8.2         We may transfer our rights and obligations under any contract with you to another organisation. We will tell you in writing if this happens and we will ensure that the transfer will not affect your rights under the contract.  

8.3         The contract is between you and us. No other person shall have any rights to enforce any of its terms.

8.4         These Terms, and any contract between us, are only in the English language. Please note that we may not necessarily keep a copy of these Terms or your order and we would therefore encourage you to retain a copy for your own records.

8.5         Each of the provisions in these Terms operates separately. If any court or relevant authority decides that any of them are unlawful or unenforceable, the remaining provisions will remain in full force and effect.

8.6         If we fail to insist that you perform any of your obligations under these Terms, or if we do not enforce our rights against you, or if we delay in doing so, that will not mean that we have waived our rights against you and will not mean that you do not have to comply with those obligations. If we do waive a default by you, we will only do so in writing, and that will not mean that we will automatically waive any later default by you.

8.7         These Terms are governed by the law of England and Wales. This means a contract for the purchase of Products and any dispute or claim arising out of or in connection with it will be governed by the law of England and Wales, except that if you are not resident in England and Wales the laws of England and Wales shall apply only to the extent that they do not override any mandatory laws of the country in which you have your usual place of residence.

8.8         In respect of any dispute or claim relating to a contract, we each submit to the non-exclusive jurisdiction of the courts of England and Wales, but nothing in this clause shall limit your legal rights to bring an action or to require proceedings to take place in the country in which you have your usual place of residence. For example, if you live in Scotland you can bring legal proceedings in respect of your contract in either the Scottish or the English courts.

What data do we collect?

Personal data is any information about an individual from which that person can be identified. It does not include data where the identity has been removed (anonymous data).

In this case, we may have to cancel the relevant contract.

8.         SECURITY

We have put in place appropriate security measures to prevent your personal data from being accidentally lost, used or accessed in an unauthorised way, altered or disclosed. Your personal data is only available to authorised personnel of FOUDYS who need access to the information in order to fulfil their duties. All FOUDYS personnel who have access to your personal data will only process your personal data on our instructions and they shall be subject to a duty of confidentiality.

We also have procedures in place to deal with any suspected data security breach. We will notify you and any applicable regulator of a suspected breach where we are legally required to do so.

Unfortunately, however, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. Although we do our best to protect your personal data, we cannot guarantee the security of your data transmitted to our website; any transmission is at your own risk. Once we have received your information, we will use strict procedures and security features to try to prevent unauthorised access.

9.         HOW LONG WILL WE KEEP YOUR DATA?

We will only retain your personal data for as long as necessary to fulfil the purposes we collected it for, including for the purposes of satisfying any legal, accounting or reporting requirements.

To determine the appropriate retention period for personal data, we consider the amount, nature, and sensitivity of the personal data, the potential risk of harm from unauthorised use or disclosure of your personal data, the purposes for which we process your personal data and whether we can achieve those purposes through other means, and the applicable legal requirements.

In relation to marketing consents, we may ask for your updated consent from time to time if we have not heard from you in a while to check that you still want to receive our emails. If you decide to opt-out we will keep a record of this alongside your email address or other contact details to ensure that we do not send you marketing communications going forward.

In some circumstances we may anonymise your personal data (so that it can no longer be associated with you) in order to develop our business methods and strategy or for research or statistical purposes, in which case we may use this information indefinitely without further notice to you.

We shall not have any liability whatsoever to you for the deletion of personal data in accordance with our data retention policy.

10.       WHO DO WE SHARE YOUR DATA WITH?

We may share your personal data with the following third parties in order to perform a contract with you, comply with a legal or regulatory obligation, in our legitimate interests of conducting our business or where you have consented:

In some instances where we share data with third parties, such as HMRC, those third parties will also be controllers of your personal data. We shall not be responsible or liable for the way in which other data controllers hold or process your personal data. Please contact those third parties for further information regarding how they will use your data. We shall only share your personal data with third parties in accordance with this privacy policy.

    12.       WHAT ARE YOUR RIGHTS OVER YOUR DATA?

    You have certain rights in respect of the personal data that we process about you (where we are the data controller because we determine the purpose and means for which that personal data shall be processed):

    • the right to request access to your personal data that we hold and to receive certain information relating to that data;
    • the right to ask us to rectify inaccurate data or to complete incomplete data;
    • the right to receive or ask for your personal data to be transferred to a third party in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format (note that this right only applies to automated information which you initially provided consent for us to use or where we used the information to perform a contract with you);
    • the right to request the erasure of personal data if it is no longer necessary in relation to the purposes for which it was collected or processed or if you have successfully objected to processing (note, however, that we may not always be able to comply with your request of erasure for specific legal reasons which will be notified to you, if applicable, at the time of your request);
    • the right to object to how we process your personal data in certain circumstances, including the right to ask us not to process your personal data for marketing purposes;
    • the right to restrict processing of your personal data, for example if you want us to establish the accuracy of the data or you have objected to our use of your data but we need to verify whether we have overriding legitimate grounds to use it; and
    • where we are processing personal data relating to you on the basis that we have your consent to do so, you may withdraw your consent at any time (this will not affect the lawfulness of any processing carried out before you withdraw your consent). If you withdraw your consent, we may not be able to provide certain products or services to you.

    If you wish to exercise any of the other rights set out above, please contact us by email at hello@foudys.com

    We may ask you to verify your identity if you make a request to us to exercise any of the rights set out above. This is a security measure to ensure that personal data is not disclosed to any person who has no right to receive it. We may also contact you to ask you for further information in relation to your request to speed up our response. You will not have to pay a fee to access your personal data (or to exercise any of the other rights). However, we may charge a reasonable fee if your request is clearly unfounded or excessive. Alternatively, we may refuse to comply with your request in these circumstances.

    We will try to respond to all legitimate requests. Occasionally, it may take us longer than a month if your request is particularly complex or you have made a number of requests. In this case, we will notify you and keep you updated.
