3. Our contract
When you place an order to purchase a product from the website, we will send you an email confirming receipt and containing order details. Your order represents an offer to us to purchase a product, which is accepted when we send an email to you confirming that we have accepted the order (the ‘order confirmation email’). Such acceptance will be complete when we send the order confirmation email to you. You are seeking to enter into a contract with Canterbury when you place an order.
This contract is legally binding when you have placed an order, your order has been accepted by us and we have sent you the confirmation email.
Canterbury will retain the title in the products until full payment has been made by you and has been received by Canterbury.
Canterbury reserves the right to hold any orders prior to shipping for security review. Canterbury only delivers its products to the locations listed on the website. In the event that an order is placed for a delivery to a location where we do not deliver, the order will be cancelled and a refund processed.
4. Fraud prevention, fraud screening and age and identity verification checks
By confirming your order, you will be indicating that you have read, understood and agree to these e-commerce terms and conditions and that you explicitly consent to your personal information being used by us, our third party payment providers and Fraud Prevention Agencies (as further described below) for the following purposes. You should not confirm your order on our website unless you consent to this use of your personal information. If you have any questions at all about this, please contact us at [firstname.lastname@example.org] before you proceed with your purchase.
Your personal information including your full name and address, your bank account and card payment details and your sensitive personal data will be used for fraud prevention, fraud screening and age and identity verification purposes. This personal information may be disclosed to and used by fraud prevention agencies (“FPAs”) for all such purposes and those agencies may keep a record of it where permitted by the Privacy Act 1993 (as amended and/or replaced from time to time). This personal information will also be disclosed to third parties providing fraud prevention, fraud screening and age and/or identity verification services us.
As part of this, we may check the following records about you:
• our own records;
• records held by third parties providing services to us; and
• records at fraud prevention agencies (FPAs).
The checks described above may include assessing and verifying identities to prevent and detect fraud. The information we obtain from third parties providing services to us and FPAs will help us to decide whether we are willing to accept payments from you through our website(s) and whether to complete the payment process through our website(s).
As explained above, personal information about you may be sent by us to FPAs and recorded by them. In addition, we may give details of the payments you make to FPAs. All such information may be supplied by the FPAs to other organisations in order that they may perform similar fraud prevention, fraud screening and age and identity verification checks against you, including as part of online transactions and otherwise. Records remain on file for up to 6 years after checks are carried out.
If you give us false or inaccurate information about yourself and if we suspect fraudulent payments and/or identity fraud we will record this and may also pass this information to FPAs and other organisations involved in crime and fraud prevention. We and other organisations may access and use information which relates to you and which is recorded by FPAs in other countries.
This section constitutes a short form explanation about how your personal information may be used by us in conjunction with the FPAs. If you would like to obtain full details about this, please contact us at [email@example.com].
We will endeavour to deliver all products ordered within 30 (thirty) days from the date of your order confirmation email. Please click here to view our delivery details and charges (if applicable).
All products purchased from the website are made pursuant to a shipment contract. This means that the risk of loss for such products will pass to you when we deliver your product(s) to the address you gave us or you (or, in limited circumstances, a carrier organised by you) collects the product(s) from us. You will be responsible for the product(s) once they are in your physical possession or once they have been delivered in accordance with the delivery instructions. If you have received your order confirmation email but your products have not arrived within the time specified, please contact us and we will do our best to assist. Please allow an additional day before raising a query during exceptionally busy periods (e.g. Christmas) or when the weather is particularly inclement.
If your order has not been received within the specified timescales set out below, in the first instance please check whether your local mail delivery office is holding your parcel. If they do not have your products, please contact us and we will do our best to assist.
You can only return Canterbury products that have been purchased directly through this website. Canterbury products purchased at a retail store or from other websites must be returned to the original store or site from which they were purchased.
If you are not happy with your Canterbury products, please follow our delivery, returns, exchanges and repairs policy, so that we can exchange or refund your order. Canterbury reserves the right to reject the return of products (unless the product is not of an acceptable quality, is not fit for purpose or is not as described at the time of purchase) that are not returned in accordance with this policy procedure. We may request that you pay delivery charges to return such goods back to you. Our returns policy does not affect your statutory rights.
We can only process exchanges for stock of equal or lesser value for the original purchase order. Our accounts department will process a refund for the difference if applicable.
We will not refund the original delivery charge in the case of exchanges or returns.
In the case of returns, you will only be refunded the value of the goods ordered.
We will only pay the return costs and subsequent re-delivery costs (if applicable) if the return is a result of our error or the goods are faulty.
This returns procedure does not affect any of your other statutory rights.
Conditions for all returns or exchanges
All goods must be returned to us unused, together with all original packaging (please note you have a duty to take reasonable care of returned goods and any refund may be withheld or a charge incurred if you fail to take such care and damage the goods). Please make sure that your return package is packed and sealed securely (in or with the original packaging if possible). Packages must be returned with the freight prepaid. We recommend the use of a tracked parcel service, such as the New Zealand Post's CourierPost service.
With your purchase of Canterbury products, you will receive a delivery note and returns form. To return items, whether for exchange or return, simply fill out the form as instructed, include it in the package and attach the label to the outside of the package then post it back to us. If you do not have your returns form, our returns team will be happy to send electronic copies you can print at home. Contact us.
Again - We can only process exchanges for stock of equal or lesser value for the original purchase order. Our accounts department will process a refund for the difference if applicable.

If a product's correct price is lower than our stated price, we will charge the lower amount and send you the product. If a product's correct price is higher than our stated price, we will, at our discretion, either contact you for instructions before shipping the products or cancel your order and notify you of such cancellation.
When ordering products from the website for delivery overseas you may be subject to import duties and taxes, which are levied once the package reaches the specified destination. Any additional charges for customs clearance must be borne by you as we have no control over them and cannot predict what they may be. Customs policies vary widely by country, so you should contact the local customs office for further information. Additionally, please note that when ordering from the website, you are considered the importer of record and must comply with all laws and regulations of the country in which the products are received. Your privacy is important and we know you care about how order information is used and shared.
