By using this website, the Customer is acknowledging their consent to be bound by these Terms and Conditions.

Forming a Contract
When the customer places an order to purchase a product from this website, this order is a formal offer to purchase the mention product. You will then have the option to create an account with us and login; if you are an existing customer you may enter your login details, once you are logged in, or choose not to create an account, you must select a delivery option and proceed to order. Upon receipt of the customer’s order, we will send the customer a confirmation email illustrating the order placed. The confirmation email that Dark Side Comics sends is neither a guarantee nor an invoice. A contract between the customer and Dark Side Comics will come into existence when Dark Side Comics recieve payment for the purchase of the product.
We will not file a copy of these terms of sale specifically in relation to your order. We may update the version of these terms of sale on the website from time to time, and we do not guarantee that the version you have agreed to will remain accessible. We therefore recommend that you download, print and retain a copy of these terms of sale for your records.
Pricing & Payment
All prices on this website are in £ Stirling and include V.A.T. (where applicable). Dark Side Comics makes every effort to ensure that all products are correctly priced, but due to the high volume of products listed on this website, errors may occur and Dark Side Comics reserves the right to alter product prices on this website without notice. Other reasons for price alterations may include (but are not limited to) taxation charges or other duty increases. Prices for products are liable to change at any time, but changes will not affect contracts which have come into force.
In addition to the price of the products, you will have to pay a delivery charge, which will be as stated when you pay for the product.
Payment must be made [upon the submission of your order]. We may withhold the products and/or cancel the contract between us if the price is not received from you in full in cleared funds.
Payment for all products must be made by credit or debit card.
If you dispute any payment made to us you must contact us immediately and provide full details of your claim. If you submit an unjustified credit card, debit card or other charge-back then you will be liable to pay us, within  days following the date of the charge-back: (i) an amount equal to the amount of the charge-back; (ii) all third party expenses incurred by us in relation to the charge-back (include charges made by our or your bank or payment processor or card issuer); and (iii) all our reasonable costs, losses and expenses incurred in recovering the amounts referred to in this paragraph (including without limitation legal fees and debt collection fees).
[Without prejudice to our other rights, if you submit an unjustified credit card, debit card or other charge-back, then we may terminate any contracts between you and us under these terms of sale by giving you written notice of termination.]
[For the avoidance of doubt, if you fail to recognise or fail to remember the source of an entry on your card statement or other financial statement, and make a charge-back as a result, this will constitute an unjustified charge-back.]
When a release date is listed on this website, that date is subject to information received from the supplier of the goods. Dark Side Comics will not be held responsible if that item is delayed or cancelled, or in the unusual event that the content or cover art has changed. Where a new release is cancelled, Dark Side Comics will cancel the customer’s order and no costs will be charged to the customer’s account. Dark Side Comics may sell a number of limited editions on this website. The availability of these items is strictly on a ‘first come first served’ basis. Dark Side Comics will endeavour to fulfil every customer’s order; however, once the supply of the limited edition item is exhausted and the customer’s order cannot be fulfilled, Dark Side Comics will cancel the Customer’s order and no costs will be charged to the Customer’s account. Dark Side Comic will not be responsible for compensating the Customer for any other losses connected with the purchase of limited edition products.

(c) You will be able to accept delivery of the products;
(d) You are resident in UK, Ireland or Europe; and
(e) You are at least 18 years of age.
Product prices on this website are exclusive of delivery and shipping charges, with the exception of the Total Price listed in the shopping cart, which is inclusive of these charges, and clearly stated.

Dark Side Comics will use reasonable endeavours to deliver products to the customer as soon as possible, in accordance with the Delivery Policy as detailed on the ‘Delivery & Returns’ page. We will arrange for the products to be delivered to the address indicated in your order. We reserve the right not to deliver to an address that we may consider to be unsecure for example to a communal postal address or a PO Box. If this affects your order, we will contact you as soon as possible. For a high priced item, we may reserve the right to deliver to your billing address only. Should this be the case, we will contact you after the order has been placed. Dark Side Comicswill not be liable to the Customer in the event that Dark Side Comics is prevented by circumstance from delivering product that the Customer has ordered.
Risk and ownership
The products will be at your risk from the time of delivery. Ownership of the products will only pass to you upon the later of:
(a) Delivery of the products; and
(b) Receipt by us of full payment of all sums due in respect of the products (including delivery charges).
We will be entitled to recover payment for the products even where ownership has not passed to you.
Right to cancel
The customer may cancel their order, for any reason and at any time, up to seven working days after you have received your goods. In order to cancel a contract in this way, you must inform Dark Side Comic with a written notice of cancellation. In the event that the customer has unsealed the packaging on a comic, graphic novel or goods, the customer’s right to cancel no longer applies. Should a customer wish to invoke their right to cancel on any item, the product must be promptly returned to Dark Side Comic, in the same condition in which you received them with all seals and wrappings intact. The following terms apply.
If Dark Side Comicshas not yet dispatched the product, we will cancel the customer’s order and no costs will be charged to the customer’s account. If Dark Side Comic has already dispatched the product, the customer undertakes the responsibility to return that product to Dark Side Comics. In this event, Dark Side Comic will refund the cost of the item, but will not refund any postal charges paid by the customer as part of their initial order. The customer must return the item to Dark Side Comic within 28 days of receipt to qualify for a refund.
If you cancel a contract on this basis and you do not return the products to us, we may recover the products and charge you for the costs we incur in doing so. Similarly, if you return the products at our expense, we may pass that expense on to you.
If you cancel a contract and are entitled to a refund, we will usually refund any money received from you using the same method originally used by you to pay for your purchase. We will process the refund due to you as soon as possible (providing we have received the goods returned, and they are in a saleable condition) and, in any event; within 30 days of the day we received your valid notice of cancellation.
