  12. DELIVERY AND RETURN OF BOXES

    1. Boxes can only be delivered to addresses within the United Kingdom (including Northern Ireland); this excludes PO Box addresses and BFPO addresses.
    2. Boxes are delivered by your local postie. Proof of delivery is not obtained. Actual delivery times may vary for you depending on:
      • our stock availability;
      • your delivery address;
      • when you make your selection; and
      • circumstances impacting delivery by the postal service.
    3. We reserve the right to use alternative delivery methods without prior notification.
    4. You will not hold us responsible for any delays, outside our control, which relate to the delivery of boxes.
    5. It is your responsibility to report all lost or undelivered boxes online within 7 days of the expected last day of delivery shown in your confirmation email.
    6. If your box does not fit through your letter box and you are out when it is delivered, your postie should leave a card at the address with information about collection or re-delivery. The postage provider will hold the box for 18 days before returning it to us and it is your responsibility to contact them to arrange receipt of the box as soon as you can. We cannot be held responsible for refunding or replacing the box if this process has not been followed.
    7. Where the above process is followed the following credit procedure applies:
      1. Please report the problem to us online using this link: https://www.dame-box.com/pages/contact. Where a box is first reported as lost, a credit for half the price of the box is given as the box may still turn up. If the box is reported again as having not arrived, the remainder of the credit for that box will be given.
      2. If you have not received your box and have not been left a card to say that the delivery has been attempted, please contact Royal Mail to check whether they have the box. You can find your local delivery office here: http://www.royalmail.com/delivery-and-collection-office-finder. If Royal Mail are not holding the box for you, please contact us on hello@sanitaryowl.com to report the problem. A reasonable allowance of time will need to be made for any delivery delays before we are able to take action.
    8. If you change address, you must update your address details in the relevant section of the website to ensure that boxes are not sent out to the wrong address. Please ensure this is done in time to take effect before you move as you will not be refunded or credited for any boxes posted to the wrong location. You can update your address details in your account section here.
    9. We reserve the right to cancel your account with us if it becomes apparent that, in our sole opinion, the postal service in your area is too unreliable.
    10. If you are dissatisfied with any product you receive from us, please contact our customer services team on hello@mydamebox.com. We retain the right to request a return of any faulty goods by recorded delivery to the return address on the box and the product will be inspected. If we request recorded delivery then we will pay for the cost of the postage on provision of the postage receipt. If the fault is agreed, a full refund will be given for the returned goods. Nothing in this section affects your legal rights.
    11. If you place an order for multiple one-off boxes, please be aware that they will still be sent via your local postie and may be subject to delays. We therefore cannot guarantee delivery on a specific day and will not be held liable for delays outside of our control.
  13. CANCELLATION

    1. You can cancel the purchase of a parcel at any time before the cut off times relevant to your delivery day by visiting your account section of the website. For more details for any assistance please email hello@sanitaryowl.com.
    2. Details of our cut-off times are available in our FAQs. Cut-off times may vary in the approach to a bank holiday – however we will advise of changes to the cut off times in our Help page of the website the week before a bank holiday.
    3. Cancellation must be by the website www.mydamebox.com. You remain responsible for ensuring that any such change or cancellation is not only transmitted by you, but received by us, in time for the deadline and that you receive the confirmation email from us before the deadline.
    4. We reserve the right to terminate or restrict your use of our service, for any or no reason whatsoever.
