Terms & Conditions
Please read the following carefully. Your use of the Moshi Monsters e-commerce site ("store.moshimonsters.com") and purchase of the products ("Products") on it mean that you agree to these terms and conditions ("Terms"). You should print a copy of these Terms or save them to your computer for future reference.
We may amend these Terms from time to time. Every time you wish to order Products, please check these Terms to ensure you understand the terms which apply at that time. These Terms were last updated on [7 June 2012].
Shopping at store.moshimonsters.com
You can Order Products online via this website.
When you place an Order for a Product ("Order") you are offering to buy it for the price stated, subject to these Terms.
When you place your Order online we will send you an email to confirm that we have received it. This email confirmation will be produced automatically so that you have confirmation of your Order details. The fact that you receive an automatic confirmation does not necessarily mean that we will be able to meet your Order. Once we have sent the confirmation email we will then check availability and contact you with a further email. If the Product is available and the details of the Order are correct, this email will be deemed an acceptance and will specify delivery details and confirm the price of the Products purchased. If the Product is not available we will also let you know by email.
Mind Candy may cancel any sale and not supply Products if it is reasonable to do so and may change or discontinue the availability of Products at any time at its sole discretion. If an Order is cancelled, any payment made for the Products will be refunded in full. This does not affect your Statutory Rights. All new Orders are deemed separate and each is treated individually.
The price for each Product is shown on store.moshimonsters.com and will include VAT or sales taxes as appropriate and in accordance with local regulations. We always try to make sure that the prices on store.moshimonsters.com are accurate but errors may occur. If we discover an error in pricing of the Products in your Order we will inform you as soon as possible using the contact details you supply us with.
You will be notified of the delivery costs automatically before you submit your credit card details, based on the delivery address you specify. In some instances Products may only be available at one warehouse location outside of your local area, in this instance overseas shipping costs will be shown before you submit your credit card details.
Prices are quoted on store.moshimonsters.com in UK pounds - outside the UK your credit card company should exchange the amount charged to the currency of your country at the current rate but you may use the store.moshimonsters.com "currency converter" to estimate the price in your currency. Please note that the "currency converter" is only a guide and may not accurately reflect current exchange rates. Please note that both charges and refunds are in UK pounds and Mind Candy cannot be held responsible for any loss due to exchange rate fluctuations.
Non-EU customers are responsible for Import Duty/Tax in their respective countries. Unfortunately we cannot advise you what these costs will be - please consult your local customs office for more information.
You must pay for your Order before it is delivered and you can do so by using Paypal. Currently, credit/debit card purchases on store.moshimonsters.com are processed only through Paypal. Orders placed online at store.moshimonsters.com will be displayed on the customer's billing statement as "PAYPAL *MOSHISTORE".
To ensure that shopping online is secure, when paying by credit/debit card your details will be encrypted to minimise the possibility of someone being able to read them as they are sent over the Internet. As store.moshimonsters.com uses a third party payment provider, Mind Candy therefore do not store any customer credit/debit card or bank account information. All customer credit/debit card and bank account information is stored by the payment provider solely in encrypted form in a high security computer centre on servers that are not connected to the internet.
All collection and storage of sensitive information by the payment provider conforms to the requirements of the Data Protection Act. Your credit/debit card company and Paypal may carry out additional security checks to confirm it is you making the Order. In the event your card is declined please contact your card issuer or Paypal to authorise the transaction.
Permission from a primary account holder must be gained prior to making purchases online at store.moshimonsters.com. If permission has not been gained, Mind Candy reserves the right to cancel Orders linked to unapproved purchases.
Additional fees for online purchases at store.moshimonsters.com may be charged by Paypal or your card issuer for cross border transactions. None of these fees are received by Mind Candy or are the liability of Mind Candy.
We try to keep store.moshimonsters.com as up to date as possible but cannot guarantee that particular Products will always be available. If we can't supply a Product you will not be charged for it and we will refund or re-credit your account with the amount debited by us.
Mind Candy uses a third party fulfillment provider, delivering to destinations inside and outside the UK.
You will be notified of the delivery costs automatically before you submit your credit/debit card details.
Delivery outside the EU may be subject to local import taxes, which are your responsibility where they apply, you should consult your local customs office if you are unsure about these charges. Unfortunately we cannot advise you what these charges will be and Mind Candy is not responsible for them. If these local import/custom charges are refused or not paid by the customer, then the item could be returned to Mind Candy or possibly destroyed if too expensive to return. Please note: If this happens, we may not be able to refund you for your order. We would not be able to refund any original postage costs paid and can only refund for the returned product/s minus any costs incurred in returning them to Mind Candy.
The shipping rates charged are calculated by our third party fulfillment provider by weight and fulfilling from the location nearest to your delivery address depending on product availability.
Our third party fulfillment provider offers a range of services depending on the address they are delivering to. Our third party fulfillment provider will make every effort to deliver within the time stated at store.moshimonsters.com but we will not be liable for any loss caused to you by late delivery. Some services require a signature and operate between specific times, please specify an address where someone will be able to sign for your Order between these times.
Please Order from store.moshimonsters.com with enough time to prevent any loss or disappointment resulting from the delivery time as Mind Candy cannot be responsible for this.
This does not affect your statutory rights as a consumer.

Unwanted Products - European Distance Selling Regulations (DSRs)
By law, consumers in the European Union have the right to cancel a contract for the purchase of an item within a seven working day period beginning with the day after the day on which the item was received.

Where you are cancelling your order within this cooling-off period we will refund the cost of the item and the cost of sending the item to you as follows:
- Where you are returning an item that was part of a larger order, we will refund any specific standard delivery charges that you incurred for that item.
- Where you are returning your entire order, we will refund the standard delivery charge incurred.
However, please note that we will NOT refund your costs in returning the item to us and other services provided to you in connection with your purchase (eg. Express Delivery) UNLESS you are returning the item to us because of an error on our part (or because it is defective) under our 30-day Money-back Policy above.
