Description of Products
We take all reasonable efforts to ensure that the product information as detailed on the website is accurate, fair and current. This includes specific conditions relating to the product including but not limited to: related Terms and Conditions, estimated delivery dates and times, warranties and guarantees.
However, although we aim to keep the product information as up to date as possible, it may be the case that at the point that the order is placed, some element of the product information may not exactly reflect the details of the actual product:
- The actual price of the product can only be confirmed once the order has been accepted, according to our order acceptance policy
- The product packaging may vary from the product images on the website
- The weights and product dimensions given are approximate only
- The key features and product attributes are based on information provided to us by the manufacturer and these may vary
- Whilst we try to show the accurate colour of the product on the website, differences in computer screens and monitors may mean the actual colour of the product that you receive will differ from how you see it on the website.
- Colour swatches on the product details page are used as functions to change product colours only and do not represent the actual or implied colour of the products.
- The stock position of the product as shown on the website is a guide only and the available stock position will only be confirmed at the point that the order is accepted.
In any circumstance where the actual product information varies from that displayed on the website, we reserve the right not to accept the order.
Ryman Business is a multi-channel retailer and operates a best practice pricing strategy that attempts to ensure the consistency of pricing between its various sales channels. However, it may be the case that a product or promotion that is available in one sales channel is not available in all other sales channels.
Bulk pricing (where a product is offered at a lower unit price when purchased in volume) is available on certain products on both the website and through the telesales team but is not currently available through the stores or through the in store ordering facility. Similarly not all products that are available on rymanbusiness.com will be available to order in store.
Product pricing on the website can be displayed including VAT or Excluding VAT. However, the full price of the order will include VAT plus any additional delivery and packaging costs, where applicable.
Purchase of Goods
Placing an order on the Ryman Business website does not constitute a contract between you and us. The order is only confirmed once we have notified you that the order has been invoiced and despatched.
For the avoidance of doubt, any such contract between you and Ryman Business, will be deemed to have been concluded in the United Kingdom. Further, any such contract will be interpreted, construed and enforced in all respects in accordance with the laws of England, and you and Ryman Limited irrevocably agree to submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of the English Courts.
The order process is as follows:
- Goods that are stocked in our main warehouse are then collected by our selected carrier and sent for dispatch according to our delivery option
- Goods that are being delivered directly from our suppliers (usually furniture or larger machines) can take a little longer to be shipped.
- Clicking on the ‘Make Payment’ button in the payment screen of the checkout process will submit the order for payment.
- You may be required to enter some additional payment verification details from your credit card provider before the order is submitted to us. (If you have credit agreement set i.e. managed customer on account, the amount will be taken from your allocated credit limit)
- Once you see the order confirmation page, you will then receive an email acknowledgement confirming the details of each product in your order. This is not a confirmation that the order has been accepted or processed.
- Once the goods are picked and packed and ready for dispatch, a contract between you and us is in place at this point.
If for any reason, there is a problem in processing the order then we will notify you via email or telephone of the circumstances of why it could not be fulfilled. This could be for one of the following reasons:
- There was an error in how the product was described or priced on the website
- One of the products in the order is currently out of stock
- We are unable to take full payment for your order
- You did not fulfil your obligations as set out under these terms and conditions.
Cancelling your Order
Please see our Returns and Refunds policy on the circumstances as to how and when you can cancel your order.
Please note that when you agree to these website terms, you shall be deemed to have understood and agreed to our Returns and Refunds policy in its entirety.
Methods of Payment
At the present time, payment can be made using credit/debit cards or through a Ryman Business Account.
Cheques are not acceptable as a payment method for orders taken on the website. Cheques are accepted for orders taken over the phone but the funds must have cleared before the order will be shipped. Your cheques should be made payable to Ryman Limited and then sent to Ryman Business Accounts, Savoy House, Savoy Road, Crewe, Cheshire CW1 6NA.
You are able to pay for your goods using all major credit and debit cards (MasterCard, Visa, and American Express). Secure servers offer Ryman customers the highest level of security when entering credit card details over the Internet.
All credit/debit card purchases are subject to the normal validation checks and authorisation procedures adopted by the card issuer. In addition, we have additional Credit Card Fraud Prevention measures to protect you. Any refusal by the issuer of any payment card to authorise the payment to us, for any reason, will not render Ryman liable for any delay or non-delivery.
Ryman Gift Cards
Ryman Gift Cards can be exchanged for goods in all Ryman Stores, but cannot be used online or over the telephone.
Coupons, discounts and promotional discount codes offered by Ryman Business are only for use on the Rymanbusiness.com, unless otherwise stated. These types of promotional discounts are not valid for use against the purchase of goods in the Ryman Stores or over the telephone.
At Rymanbusiness.com we recognise how important it is to keep your personal information safe and secure. We have a dedicated Privacy and Security Policy which explains what personal information we collect.
Please note that when you agree to these website terms, you shall be deemed to have understood and agreed to our Privacy and Security Policy in its entirety. You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your password and account and any activities that occur under your account.
Ryman shall not be liable for any loss or damage which may arise as a result of any failure by you to protect your password or account.
