Terms & Conditions
These terms set out the contract between us when you order items from this website:
· Your legal rights and responsibilities
· Our legal rights and responsibilities; and

If you are placing an order for delivery outside the UK, please review the International Orders section below.
In this contract:

1.1 If you buy items on our site you agree to be legally bound by this contract.
2. Your Privacy and Personal Information
3. Ordering Items From Us
3.1 Below, we set out how a legally binding contract between you and us is made.
3.2 Please read and check your order carefully before submitting it. However, if you need to correct any errors you can do so before submitting it to us.
3.3 When you place your order at the end of the online checkout process, we will only accept your order when we email you to confirm this (Confirmation Email). At this point, a legally binding contract will be in place between you and us on these terms; and we will dispatch the items to you.
Ordering Digital Content from Us
0.1 The contents are only available for transfer in electronic form by e-mail or by download from our website.
0.2 We grant you the right to use the contents of pattern downloads for private purposes only.
0.3 Any transfer of the content to third parties or the making of copies for third parties is not permitted unless you have written consent from us.
4. International Orders
4.1 If you order items for delivery to a country other than the United Kingdom, this section applies to you.
4.2 You will be the importer for the delivery of items to a country other than the UK. That means that, before placing an order, it is your responsibility to check that the items you are planning to import comply with any government import regulations, and that there are no local requirements or restrictions which may affect your receiving the items. Customs may inspect goods prior to delivery, which may cause delays
4.3 For US customers, all applicable customs and import duties and fees, taxes and any other charges are pre-paid by Rowan and are included in the price shown to you at checkout.
4.4 For orders to countries other than the US, most of these shouldn’t be charged customs as most are below the minimum customs duty threshold. This amount may vary from country to country and these fees are the responsibility of the customer. We ship your package DDU, “duties and taxes unpaid”, and we do not collect the VAT, duties and/or taxes and cannot predict what your particular charges may be. If your order does require payment of these additional charges, they must be paid by you in order for your package to clear customs.
5. Right to Cancel this Contract
5.1 You have the right to cancel this contract within 14 days without giving any reason.
5.2 The cancellation period will expire after 14 days from the day we deliver the items.
5.3 To exercise the right to cancel, you must inform us of your decision to cancel this contract by a clear statement, for example, an email.
5.4 To meet the cancellation deadline, it is sufficient for you to send your communication concerning your exercise of the right to cancel before the cancellation period has expired.
6. Effects of Cancellation
6.1 If you cancel this contract, we will reimburse to you all payments received from you, including the costs of delivery (except for the extra costs arising if you chose a type of delivery other than the least expensive type of standard delivery offered by us).
6.2 You should only handle the items to the extent necessary to establish the nature, characteristics and functioning of the items – the same as you would if you were buying them from a shop. To qualify for a refund/exchange, all items must be returned in original condition with all tags and packaging intact. If an item is returned to us worn, used or in an unsuitable condition, we won’t be able to give you a refund. Also, once you have started making a kit, or have unwrapped the yarn you have bought, we are unable to give you a full refund unless the product is faulty.
6.3 If you have received items you shall send them back not later than 14 days from the day on which you tell us you are cancelling the contract. The deadline is met if you send back the items before the period of 14 days has expired. You will have to bear the cost of returning the items.
6.4 We will make the reimbursement no later than:
6.4.1 14 days after the day we received back from you any items supplied; or
6.4.2 (if earlier) 14 days after the day you provide evidence that you have returned the items; or
6.4.3 if there were no items supplied, 14 days after the day on which we are informed about your decision to cancel this contract.
6.5 We will make the reimbursement using the same means of payment as you used for the initial transaction, unless you have expressly agreed otherwise; in any event, you will not incur any fees as a result of the reimbursement.
6.6 For more information about returns, see here.
7.1 The estimated date for delivery of the items is set out in the Confirmation Email.
7.2 If something happens which is outside of our control and affects the estimated date of delivery, we will tell you a revised estimated date for delivery of the items.
7.3 Delivery of the items will take place when we deliver them to the address that you gave to us.
7.4 Unless you and we agree otherwise, if we cannot deliver your items within 30 days, we will let you know, cancel your order and give you a refund.

7.6 If nobody is available to take delivery, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or by using the contact form on our site.

9.3 An E-Gift Card cannot be exchanged for cash or redeemed against anything apart from our Ready Made, Knit Kits or Supplies, and is valid for one year from the date of purchase. E-Gift Cards can only be redeemed in their entirety. If you don't redeem the full cash value of the E-Gift Card in a single order, then the remaining amount will be forfeited. An E-Gift Card cannot be exchanged for cash.
9.4 To purchase items using an E-Gift Card simply enter the code in the promo box in the cart. This will automatically deduct the amount of your E-Gift Card.
9.5 You can take advantage of another promo at the same time as you redeem your E-Gift Card. Add the promo code to deduct the promotion amount, then add your E-Gift Card number to redeem the cash value.
9.6 E-Gift Cards are redeemable against any items on knitrowan.com. It's not possible to redeem an E-Gift Card against shipping.
9.7 As a customer your right to return an item bought using an E-Gift Card is exactly the same regardless of whether you've bought the items with an E-Gift Card, a payment card, or a combination of the two. If you've paid for the whole order with an E-Gift Card, then a replacement E-Gift Card for the amount will be issued to you. If you paid with a combination of payment card and E-Gift Card, we'll refund anything that you paid for on your debit/credit card first, and then the remaining amount will be issued as a new gift promo.
