8.1 Cancellations should be made either in writing, by email to firstname.lastname@example.org or via telephone, to our Customer Services Team : 0800 002 9421. The customer does not need to give a reason, however, a brief outlined explanation will help us to improve our customer service in the future. If the customer decides to cancel the order, a refund for the goods will be issued once we receive the goods back to our warehouse. The cost for returning the goods is the responsibility of the customer (buyer). However, if the customer wants us to organise returns this can be possible and refund will be issued after deducting return cost.
8.2 If you cancel the order after despatch, but before physical delivery, you will be expected to accept delivery of the goods and take responsibility for the return of the goods to Royale Stones. In case the delivery is refused we will refund the full amount after deducting return cost once we receive the goods back in pristine condition as delivered.

8.3 Please read our returns & refund policy.

10. Delivery of goods to you
10.1 Royale Stones cannot, under any circumstances cannot be held responsible for any financial losses from the buyer due to late delivery, incorrect supply of goods, or incorrect delivery. We recommend that the buyer doesn't book any tradesman/tiler, until the goods have been delivered to the site, signed for and quality inspected. The risk in relation to the goods passes to the buyer at the point of delivery. We always offer an estimated delivery date in good faith, therefore we cannot be held responsible for unforeseen delays. Please note all our deliveries are made by 3rd party courier.
10.2 Time shall not be of the essence. Royale Stones shall not be liable to the buyer, or be deemed to be in breach of the contract by reason of any delay in performing, or if any failure to perform, was due to any reason beyond our reasonable control. Without prejudice to the generality of the foregoing, the following shall be regarded, although not exclusively, as events beyond our control as mentioned in Point 15.
10.3 Royale Stones are able to offer a wide range of standard and special delivery services in conjunction with our 3rd party contractors. Due to Health & Safety / Insurance reasons we are only able to offer a Kerbside/Roadside Delivery Service, unless agreements have been made prior to placing the order. We cannot commit that drivers will enter customer's property. Whilst every effort will be made to deliver goods in line with desired, requested or committed service, we do not accept responsibility for any delay, cost, or consequential loss, however caused due to late or failed delivery. All standard deliveries are made between 7am & 6pm.
Kerbside Delivery Service: Whilst every effort will be made to deliver goods to the nearest available delivery point, hazards or obstruction e.g. steps, lifts, grass, gravel or uneven paths / driveways may necessitate the delivery being made to an alternative location nearest to the delivery vehicle.
10.4 For the purpose of standard delivery, the vehicle used is likely in most cases, to be an 18 tonne vehicle with a comparative size of Refuge Vehicle or slightly larger. It is Buyer's responsibility to notify Royale Stones of any circumstances that may affect the delivery of goods using a vehicle of this size. i.e. Parking restrictions, "Red Routes", vehicular access due to height or width, narrow roads, road works, overhanging trees, grass, gravel or uneven driveways, high-rise apartments etc. Failure to communicate relevant information with Royale Stones prior to delivery may result in additional costs for the re-supply being incurred by the Buyer and may also increase re-delivery lead time.
10.5 If, due to prior notification from the Buyer, that a smaller or specialist vehicle is required to complete the delivery, Royale Stones reserve the right to charge the Buyer for additional costs involved.
10.6 Royale Stones expects that the Buyer or Buyer's representative be available to sign for the goods at the delivery point. If goods are delivered without signature the responsibility for checking the goods is that of the Buyer. If, for whatever reason, the delivery cannot be made due to Buyer or Buyer's representative not being present or available on agreed delivery date, Royale Stones reserves the right to pass on re-delivery charges incurred to the Buyer, prior to re-delivery.
10.7 Prior to commencement of work, the Buyer should ensure that they are satisfied that the goods supplied, are correct to the original order. All items should be thoroughly unpacked and inspected as soon as possible. In case of any questions at this stage, in regards to damage, shade, size or any other fault, please contact our Customer Service Team via phone on 0800 002 9421 or email to: email@example.com. In case Royale Stones deliver a part order with balance to follow, we strongly recommend that no tiles are fixed until the complete order is delivered.
11. PRODUCT QUALITY
11.1 All photographs are provided as an indication of product appearance only, as lighting conditions, screen calibration and natural variances may affect the appearance of the product.
11.2 Natural stone products may vary in color and texture and will contain individual markings and natural imperfections. These include, but are not limited to mineral deposits which may change over time as the minerals oxidize and can appear as copper, bronze or black coloration or quartzite veining. Reconstituted (man-made) products (like porcelain) contain natural aggregates and these may vary in colour and texture between batches. Tile names, images and sized displayed are nominal and only represent a guide to actual style, colour and size of a tile. Variations in texture, shade and size can occur from that which is advertised ou our website.
11.3 Sawn edged or machine finished flags may include minor variances and irregularities. The surface of hand-cut paving may delaminate slightly.
11.4 Efflorescence (white markings) may appear on the surface of concrete paving as a result of a chemical reaction between cement and water. This is a natural phenomenon and will gradually disappear with weathering. Efflorescence is a characteristic of good quality paving with a high cement content.
11.5 The sizes quoted are nominal and may vary in accordance with manufacturing tolerances. As a general guide, paving sizes quoted may vary by +/- 5mm. The thickness of calibrated paving may vary by +/- 4mm. In terms of bowing all porcelain tiles manufacturers work with tolerance of +-3mm. Some manufacturers include the pointing allowance in the specified paving size. Usually, the quoted sizes and coverage shown on our website are achieved when using an average 10mm pointing joint. Product shape and weight may also vary.
11.6 Unless specified otherwise, all buildings and timber items require construction on site and will often need minor cutting of materials to complete the project. This necessitates the use of tools as appropriate.
11.7 As products may vary between packs and batches, ensure they are mixed from each pack to achieve a blended overall appearance. We will not be liable for any labour costs, consequential loss or compensation in any way.
11.8 Ensure all goods (each individual tile) are checked for damage and defects prior to use as we will not be held responsible for any goods that have been compromised in any way during the installation process. As far as the law permits, liability is limited to either a replacement or a refund at cost of faulty product/item and excluded any consequential losses, including removal and re-fixing. The time frame to report any damages or defects is within 30 days of delivery.
11.9 Many products will weather over time and this may appear in the form of gradual fading (mainly manmade paving) and lichen/ organic growth discolouration in certain environmental conditions. Areas close to trees or planting borders may be prone to discolouration and require cleaning. Sealing paving can often reduce this effect; however, seek the manufacturer's guidance prior to application. Many products will require annual maintenance. Only use cleaning and maintenance products suitable for the product you have purchased.
11.10 Unless specified to the contrary, our products are intended for exterior use on pathways, driveways, and patio and garden applications. Driveway paving products should be used in lightly trafficked areas as this paving is designed for withstanding vehicular weight.
11.11 Samples are provided as an indication to enable the customer to judge the style of the product only.
11.12 The manufacturers of our products have a continual policy of product improvement. We therefore reserve the right to alter or change our product specifications without notification.
11.13 All complaints must be received in writing. We will deal with the matter in accordance with your legal rights.
12.1 If the goods we deliver are not what you ordered or are damaged or defective or the delivery is of an incorrect quantity, we shall have no liability to you unless you notify us in writing at our contact address of the problem within 03 working days of the delivery of the goods in question.
12.2 If you do not receive goods ordered by you within 30 days of the date on which you ordered them, we shall have no liability to you unless you notify us in writing at our contact address of the problem within 40 days of the date on which you ordered the goods.
If you notify a problem to us under this condition, our only obligation will be, at your option:
12.2.1 To make good any shortage or non-delivery;
12.2.2 To replace or repair any goods that are damaged or defective; or
12.2.3 To refund to you the amount paid by you for the goods in question in whatever way we choose.
12.3 Save as precluded by law, we will not be liable to you for any indirect or consequential loss, damage or expenses (including loss of profits, business or goodwill) howsoever arising out of any problem you notify to us under this condition and we shall have no liability to pay any money to you by way of compensation other than to refund to you the amount paid by you for the goods in question under clause 12.2.3 above.
11.4 Notwithstanding the foregoing, nothing in these terms and conditions is intended to limit any rights you might have as a consumer under applicable UK law or other statutory rights that may not be excluded nor in any way to exclude or limit our liability to you for any death or personal injury resulting from our negligence.
