You must either return the goods in person to where you collected them, post them back to The Morris Building, Old Guardbridge Road, St Andrews, Fife KY16 9SF, Attention: RETURNED GOODS, or (if they are not suitable for posting) allow us to collect them from you. Please call us on 01334 464455 or email us at shop@TheOpen.com for a return label or to arrange collection.

Where to find the price for the product: The price of the product (which includes VAT) will be the price indicated on the order pages when you placed your order. We take all reasonable care to ensure that the price of product advised to you is correct. However please see section below called "What happens if we got the price wrong" for what happens if we discover an error in the price of the product you order.
We will pass on changes in the rate of VAT: If the rate of VAT changes between your order date and the date we supply the product, we will adjust the rate of VAT that you pay, unless you have already paid for the product in full before the change in the rate of VAT takes effect.
What happens if we got the price wrong: It is always possible that, despite our best efforts, some of the products we sell may be incorrectly priced. We will normally check prices before accepting your order so that, where the product's correct price at your order date is less than our stated price at your order date, we will charge the lower amount. If the product's correct price at your order date is higher than the price stated, we will contact you for your instructions before we accept your order. If we accept and process your order where a pricing error is obvious and unmistakeable and could reasonably have been recognised by you as a mispricing, we may end the contract, refund you any sums you have paid and require the return of any goods provided to you.

Any additional charges for customs clearance must be paid by you. We have no control over these charges. Customs policies vary widely from country to country. You should contact your local customs office for further information. Additionally, please note that when ordering from us, you are considered the importer of record and must comply with all laws and regulations of the country in which you are receiving the products. Your privacy is important to us and we would like our international customers to be aware that cross-border deliveries are subject to opening and inspection by customs authorities.
Which laws apply to this contract and where you may bring legal proceedings: These terms and conditions are governed by Scots law. If you live in the EU, you can bring legal proceedings in respect of the products in the country where you live.
