SECTION 6 - BUYING FROM US
Our store is hosted on Shopify Inc. They provide us with the online e-commerce platform that allows us to sell our products and services to you. We offer two secure payment gateways: Sagepay and Paypal through Sage Pay. Joy to Create does not store any card data on their systems. We accept payment by most major cards including: Visa, Mastercard, Maestro, Delta and by Paypal, however we do not accept American Express cards. It is important that the correct card or Paypal account details including the registered cardholder’s address are verified.
If you are shopping from outside the U.K. your credit card company will convert the transaction to your own currency. You can also place an order and pay over the phone using a card or by sending a cheque in which case the cheque must clear before goods are dispatched. In most cases the address you insert will be that to which the credit card being used is registered. If you choose to insert an address other than that to which the card is issued Sage Pay will ask your card issuer for a risk rating, advising as to the risk of a fraudulent transaction. Joy to Create will either choose to proceed with the order or cancel depending upon this risk rating. Payment in GBP (£) is taken at the time of placing your order.
We will send you an e-mail confirming receipt and that your order is being processed. All offers are subject to availability. We reserve the right to change prices without notice. If a price has changed we will notify you before dispatching your order. Orders being shipped to countries outside the EU may incur customs duties and charges when they are imported. Please be aware that we will not be responsible for customs processing or any charges.
We strongly advise that you confirm any such charges before making a purchase. As we process your order (the next working day after it was placed), we will inform you by e-mail if any items you order turn out to be unavailable. If this is the case we will ask you if you would like us to place your order on backorder or if you would like it cancelled. Should the price have changed since you placed your order we will advise you and give you the opportunity to cancel the order should you prefer.

SECTION 25 - WEEE REGULATIONS
The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (or WEEE) Regulations are now U.K. law. All European member States including the U.K. have agreed to reduce the amount of WEEE that is being disposed of in landfill sites. It is important that the amount of WEEE sent to landfill sites is reduced because: Some WEEE can be re-used or recycled. The amount of landfill space available in the UK is decreasing. If we can keep WEEE out of landfill sites it means there is more landfill space available for non-recyclable waste. WEEE can contain hazardous substances. When left in landfill sites the hazardous substances in WEEE can pollute soil and contaminate water supplies. This contamination can damage human health and the environment. Distributors of new Electric and Electronic Equipment (or EEE) have a part to play in reducing the amount of WEEE going into landfill sites. Under the WEEE Regulations, all new electrical goods should now be marked with the crossed-out wheeled bin symbol.
Goods are marked with this symbol to show that they were produced after 13th August 2005, and should be disposed of separately from normal household waste so that they can be recycled. Joy to Create are obliged under these regulations to offer our customers free take-back of their WEEE on a like-for-like basis when you buy from us a new Electrical or Electronic product. As an example if a customer bought a new Pfaff sewing machine from us we would accept their old sewing machine back and prevent it going into a landfill site by disposing of it safely. Customers must return their WEEE item to us at their expense within 28 days of purchasing their new item.
