All deliveries can only be made within the UK. At the point at which you place your order, the full list of delivery options will be shown.
Our deliveries are made by third party carriers. When your order has been despatched, you will receive an email to confirm that your order is on its way.
All deliveries require a signature by someone over the age of 18; if you are not in, the carrier will attempt delivery to a neighbouring address and if this is not possible, a card will be posted through your letterbox with instructions on how to arrange re‑delivery.
You should keep your delivery note and all packaging and should notify Customer Care immediately if any of the order is missing or damaged. Where the delivery contains alcoholic merchandise, the delivery driver may ask for appropriate proof of age identification bearing a photograph, date of birth and a holographic mark if they consider that the recipient does not appear to be over the age of 18. Where the delivery cannot be signed for by a person over the age of 18 or where the delivery driver is not satisfied that the person has been able to provide acceptable proof of age identification then the delivery will not be made and a card will be left with instructions on how to arrange re‑delivery.
General payment provisions
The card stipulated when placing your order will only be accepted by us. Once payment details have been given we will charge your card.
For payment cards, all credit and debit cardholders and bank/building society account holders respectively are subject to validation checks and authorisation. If the issuer of your payment card or our third party validation service provider refuses to, or does not for any reason authorise or validate the payment, we will not be liable in these circumstances for any delay or non‑delivery in respect of the products which you have ordered as a result.
By providing the relevant information to us, you specifically authorise us to transmit or to obtain information about you from third parties (including credit reference and fraud detection agencies) from time to time, including but not limited to your name, address, telephone number, debit or credit card details, cheque details or credit reports, to authenticate your identity and delivery address for the products, validate your payment card and obtain authorisations for your payments for products.
Errors and shortages
TISC may decline to fulfil any order, including bulk purchase of items on promotion, or included in a special offer.
In the event of there being errors or shortages, these should be brought to the attention of TISC no later than three days after the delivery.
Whilst we try to ensure that all prices on the website are accurate, errors may sometimes occur. In the event that a product you have ordered is listed at an incorrect price due to a typographical or administrative error, we will notify you of the correct price by telephone or email before despatching your order, asking you to confirm you still wish to proceed with your order at the correct price. Once we have received your confirmation we will then despatch your order. If you do not confirm that you wish to proceed with the order within seven days of the date of our price correction email, we will consider this as a withdrawal of your order and we will delete your payment details from our system.
