4. Ordering/conclusion of contract
4.1 Our Website is only intended for use by retailers currently trading outside North America.
4.2 It is your responsibility to ensure your trading circumstances comply with local regulatory requirements and laws. We will not be held liable for any contravention of these laws on your part, which subsequently affects the delivery of our Goods to you.
4.3 Customers outside of the UK are responsible for payment of all import duties and/or additional taxes or expenses incurred on their order, in compliance with foreign regulatory requirements and laws. These charges are in addition to our price, VAT (where applicable) and the cost of delivery. Please note that we have no control over these charges and cannot predict their amount. Please contact your local customs office or taxation authority for further information before placing your order. Failure to pay these duties and taxes to your local customs could mean your order will either be returned to us or destroyed by the customs authorities. You will be liable for all charges in connection to this.
- If your parcel is returned to us, we will deduct all of the related charges before submitting a refund, if applicable. You may have to pay additional delivery costs if you would like us to redeliver your order. You will not be able to apply any ongoing offer codes for free shipping for the delivery of your parcel, even if one was previously used.
- We will not be held liable should your parcel be held or destroyed by the customs authorities. Under these circumstances, no refund will be due, with no exceptions.
4.4 All first orders should qualify for an offer, based on the order value. If you did not use your code for your initial order, we reserve the right to not apply the offer code to any subsequent orders.
4.5 All first orders must be above £50 (ex VAT & shipping) to be accepted. If this minimum order value threshold is not met, your Contract may be cancelled.
4.6 There is no minimum order value on subsequent orders, but orders £50 (ex VAT & shipping) and under will incur a £5.00 low order fee.
4.7 All orders are subject to the appropriate delivery charge where applicable.
4.8 All prices quoted are exclusive of VAT and shipping costs. This will be added to your order at the checkout page.
4.9 Any order placed by you constitutes an offer to purchase the Goods from us. All such offers received from you are subject to acceptance by us and we reserve the right to refuse any order placed by you at any time prior to dispatch.
4.10 All orders must be paid in full prior to dispatch failure to pay within 7 calendar days may result in the order being cancelled and Goods returned to stock. We will not be held responsible for items going out of stock when an order is placed again, following initial non-payment.
4.11 You are responsible for ensuring the accuracy of the details provided by you during the order process including your delivery address.
4.12 Your products may vary slightly from the image shown on the Website and will not include any of the pictured accessories, unless stated in the specification of the Goods. Whilst some products may be shown assembled, they may require assembly by you.
4.13 We make all reasonable efforts to accurately display the attributes of our products, including composition and colours. The colour you see will depend on your computer system, and we cannot guarantee that your computer will accurately display such colours.
4.14 If you have supplied us with your email address, you will receive an email confirmation once you have placed your order. If for any reason we are unable to fulfil your order, we will let you know at the earliest opportunity. If we have already received payment for such order, we will issue a store credit into your account or attempt to refund the applicable amount using the same method used to make the payment. If, for any reason, alternative arrangements are necessary, a HiyaHiya Europe representative will contact you to settle the refund.
4.15 Once an order has been paid for, it cannot be amended or have offer codes applied to it retrospectively.
5.1 HiyaHiya Europe exercises the utmost diligence in accepting and processing orders and will endeavour to deliver your order to the address supplied by you, in accordance with your selected delivery option. Unfortunately, we are unable to deliver to PO boxes and mail forwarding companies.
5.2 Before you place your order, you will be informed of the expected delivery details. Delivery cost is calculated online at the point of ordering, according to the package size and weight of your order and the destination it is to be sent to. All prices quoted for shipping are excluding VAT, which will be applied to your cart if applicable.
5.3 You must check that the order details are correct, prior to confirming and making full payment. Orders will be dispatched via your chosen shipping method on receipt of your full cleared payment. You will not be able to choose your courier when there is a free shipping offer. Refer to Clause 11.9.
5.4 The Goods will be delivered to you at the address you provided during the order process. All addresses should be business premises and not residential. If the Goods are not being accepted at the address as stated on your invoice, then HiyaHiya Europe accepts no responsibility for any costs, damages or lost Goods that may occur. The retailer will be liable to pay any incurred costs, including customs and additional shipping charges which are beyond our control.
5.5 HiyaHiya Europe endeavours to dispatch orders in the fastest possible time (usually within 48 hours during weekdays) and in the order in which they are placed. We aim to deliver to UK addresses within 2 to 3 working days, following payment of an order, unless otherwise agreed. Please allow for an extra 5-14 working days for deliveries to Europe and the rest of the world. Though we aim to deliver within the communicated time frame, delivery may take longer due to unexpected events outside of our control including Brexit and the Coronavirus pandemic.
5.6 Once you have placed your order, if you have supplied us with your email address, you will receive an email confirmation with your expected delivery details. Any dates quoted for standard delivery services are approximate. We shall not be liable for any delay in delivering the Goods, however caused. Current conditions, including Brexit and the Coronavirus pandemic, may mean a longer delivery time for the couriers. This is out of our control, but we will do all we can to help track and resolve any issues, where possible.
5.7 Estimated delivery times are to be used as a guide only and commence from the date of dispatch. We cannot guarantee an exact delivery date and your goods may take longer if they are to be dispatched to an address outside of the UK. The courier option you chose will endeavour to dispatch your order as quickly as possible, but we cannot be held responsible for delays as a result of remote delivery locations, weather conditions, custom procedures in your country or even delays due to the pandemic. If your order does not arrive by the scheduled date, please contact the Customer Service Team via email [email protected] and we will work hard to liaise with the courier.
5.8 We use professional carriers. Nevertheless, you must examine the Goods on arrival and report any damage, missing or incorrect items within 28 calendar days from receipt. If the parcel is damaged due to courier mishandling, you will have to raise a complaint directly with the courier. We will assist in the process where we can.
5.9 All Goods being sent to the Russian Federation (as well as other countries outside the EU at the company’s discretion) will be sent via Royal Mail unless the company has a registered business address. If the retailer’s order weighs more than 2kg, the order may be shipped in separate parcels for insurance purposes and additional postage costs may apply. The additional costs will have to be paid before the order is sent. If the company is registered and has a business address, then the order can be sent via courier.
5.10 Any problems encountered at customs as a result of a lack of proper business documentation are not the responsibility of HiyaHiya Europe. We always abide by customs’ requirements when it comes to commercial invoices on packages. It is your responsibility to ensure that duties are paid, and customs' regulations are met. If duties are left unpaid, HiyaHiya Europe will not ask for Goods to be returned to the UK as it is the retailer’s responsibility to receive the Goods. Refer to Clause 4.3.
6. Orders outside the UK
6.1 Goods ordered from the Website for delivery outside the United Kingdom may be subject to import duties and/or additional taxes or expenses incurred due to complying with foreign regulatory requirements or laws. Refer to Clause 4.3.
6.2 Please note that when shipping products internationally, you should be aware that cross-border shipments are subject to opening and inspection by customs authorities. Please also note that you must comply with all applicable laws and regulations of the country for which the Goods are destined. We will not be liable for any breach by you of any such laws.
6.3 Refer to Clause 5.
7.1 All orders are subject to acceptance and availability. If any Goods ordered are not available, you will be notified by email and you will have the option either to wait until the item is available, remove the item that is out of stock or cancel your order. If you have paid for your order, you may be offered a store credit to be used on your next order or a refund. It is your responsibility to provide us with a valid email address so that we can contact you if necessary.
7.2 Payment can only be made in GBP securely using any major credit or debit card, bank transfer or Wise. By placing an order, you consent to payment being charged to your debit/credit card or bank account. If payments are made in other currencies, resulting in less payment received than that stated on the invoice, you will be required to pay the balance of the sum owed before the order leaves our premises.
7.3 Payment will be debited and cleared from your account before the dispatch of the Goods to you.
7.4 When you pay for your order by card, we carry out certain checks which include obtaining authorisation from your card issuer to ensure you have adequate funds and for security reasons. This may involve validating your name, address and other personal information supplied by you during the order process against appropriate third-party databases including the card issuer, registered credit reference agencies and fraud prevention agencies.
7.5 If paying via bank transfer or Wise, please email your proof of payment to [email protected] within 48 hours to ensure that the products on your order are guaranteed for delivery. We will then await the release of the funds into our account before dispatching your order.
7.6 Refer to Clause 4.10.
7.7 If there are any issues when placing an order, please email our Customer Service Team on [email protected].
7.8 By accepting these Terms you:
i. agree that all the details you provide to us for the purpose of purchasing the Goods are correct and that the payment card and bank account you are using are your own and that there are sufficient funds to cover the cost of the Goods ordered;
ii. agree that any and all Goods ordered by you are for your business and not personal use; and
iii. authorise us to transmit the payment and delivery information provided by you during the order process (including any updated information) for the purpose of obtaining authorisation from your card issuer or bank to ensure you have adequate funds, to authenticate your identity, validate your payment card or account and for other security reasons, such as fraud prevention.
7.9 We shall contact you should any problems occur with the authorisation of your card. Please ensure all your details are up-to-date. Inability to contact you or should we not receive any response within 5 working days of sending you a notification (whether or not you receive it), could result in us rejecting, and subsequently cancelling, your order.
7.10 We will take all reasonable care, in so far as it is in our power to do so, to keep the details of your order and payment secure, but in the absence of negligence on our part, we cannot be held liable for any loss you may suffer if a third party procures unauthorised access to any data you provide when accessing or ordering from the Website.

16.9 You agree to fully indemnify, defend and hold us, and our officers, directors, employees and suppliers, harmless immediately on demand, from and against all claims, including but not limited to losses (including loss of profit, revenue, goodwill or reputation), costs and expenses, including reasonable administrative and legal costs, arising out of any breach of these Terms by you, or any other liabilities arising out of your use of this Website or any other person accessing the Website using your personal information with your authority.
16.10 This clause does not affect your statutory rights as a consumer, nor does it affect your contractual cancellation rights.
17. Force Majeure
17.1 We shall have no liability for delays or failures in delivery or performance of our obligations to you resulting from any act, events, omissions, failures or accidents that are outside of our control (‘Force Majeure’), which, without limitation, include:
i. strikes, lock-outs or other industrial action;
ii. shortages of labour, fuel, power, and raw materials;
iii. late, defective performance or non-performance by suppliers;
iv. private or public telecommunication, computer network failures or breakdown of equipment;
v. civil commotion, riot, invasion, terrorist attack or threat of terrorist attack, war (whether declared or not) or threat or preparation for war;
vi. fire, explosion, storm, flood, earthquake, subsidence, epidemic or other natural disaster or extreme weather conditions;
vii. impossibility of the use of railways, shipping, aircraft, motor transport or other means of public or private transport;
viii. acts, decrees, legislation, regulations or restrictions of any government; or
ix. other causes, beyond our reasonable control.
17.2 Our performance will be deemed to be suspended for the period that the event of Force Majeure continues, and we will have an extension of time for performance for the duration of that period. We will use our reasonable endeavours to minimise any delay caused by Force Majeure or to find a solution by which our obligations may be performed despite the Force Majeure event. We shall promptly notify you of any Force Majeure event giving details of it and (where possible) the extent and likely duration of any delay.
17.3 Where the period of non-performance or delay in relation to any event of Force Majeure exceeds 30 days from the date of notice to you of the event of Force Majeure, either you or we may, by written notice to the other, terminate the Contract with immediate effect upon service.
