1. Product Descriptions on our Website
1.1 We will take all reasonable care to ensure that all Product Descriptions are correct at the time when the relevant information was first entered onto the Website. We have made every effort to display as accurately as possible the appearances, colours, textures or finishes of our Products. What you see will depend on your computer equipment, screen or monitor and we are therefore unable to guarantee that a Product's images are an accurate representation of the actual merchandise. Please refer to our Returns Policy if you are unhappy with your Order.
2. Product Availability
2.1 The Website features Products that have been carefully selected for sale on the Website. Products are subject to availability so once a Product has sold out it will be taken off the Website at the earliest opportunity and may not be available again. As there is a delay between the time when your Order is placed, and the time when the Order is accepted, the stock position relating to particular Products may change. If a Product you have ordered goes out of stock before we accept your Order, then Selfridges shall not be liable to you for being unable to provide that Product. If such a situation arises, then we shall notify you as soon as possible and you will not be charged for the out of stock Product.
2.2 If, due to unforeseen circumstances or in the event of supply difficulties it is necessary to substitute a perishable Product (please note that this includes perishable Products supplied as part of a hamper), the Product will be of equal or greater value than that which it replaces, albeit at no extra cost to you. If you receive the substitute Product and do not want to accept it, then we will reimburse you for the cost and return of that Product
3. Pricing Policy
3.1 All Product prices are in pounds (£) sterling and are inclusive of UK value added tax ("VAT") (where applicable), at the appropriate rate, and are correct at the time that the Product Description was first entered on to the Website. Prices of Products may change from time to time and any promotional discounts or offers may also be withdrawn at any time.
3.2 Although we try to ensure all our Product's prices displayed in the Product Description are accurate, errors may sometimes occur. If we discover an error in the price of a Product you have ordered we will be unable to accept your Order and shall contact you as soon as possible in order to give the option of either reconfirming your Order at the correct price or cancelling it. If we are unable to contact you, we will treat your Order in respect of the incorrectly priced item as cancelled.
4. Age restrictions
4.1 We cannot sell the following Products to persons under the age of eighteen (18): knives, Products containing intoxicating liquor or Products containing tobacco. For clarity a drink containing alcohol is classified as "intoxicating" if it contains more than 0.5% of alcohol by volume (0.5% abv). Vintages, labels and closures may vary. All wines are 75cl and all spirits and liquors 70cl unless otherwise stated.
4.2 We cannot sell the following Products to anyone under the age of sixteen (16): chocolate containing liquor, Christmas crackers or cracker snaps or party poppers.
4.3 Games or DVDs cannot be sold to anyone under the age certificate specified on the Product.
4.4 By placing an Order for age-restricted Products such as the above, you warrant that you meet the age requirement for that Product and, in any event, you are at least sixteen (16) years old and the information you provide is truthful and correct. It is an offence to buy or attempt to buy age-restricted Products if you are under age or to purchase such Products for someone else who is under age.
4.5 We reserve the right not to sell or deliver any age-restricted Product to anyone who is, or appears to be, under the required age.
4.6 If you have purchased an age-restricted Product and have ordered it using the Selfridges' 'Click & Collect' service, proof of ID may be requested upon collection of that Product.
5. Order process
5.2 The technical steps to place your Order and create a contract of sale between you and us are, as follows:
- a) You place an Order on the Website by pressing the 'Buy Now' button at the end of the checkout process. You will be guided through the process of placing an Order by a series of simple instructions on the Website.
- b) We will send you an email confirming your Order which will detail the Product(s) (including their Product Descriptions) that you have ordered. This email does not constitute an acceptance of your Order by us.
- c) As your Order is shipped by us we will send you a despatch confirmation email. Please note, that we may also send you an SMS to notify you that your Order has been despatched. Alternatively, in relation to our 'Click & Collect' service, we will send you an email to confirm that your Order is ready for collection. Upon sending either of these emails, your Order will be taken to have been accepted by us unless we have notified you that we do not accept your Order, or you have cancelled it.
- d) Subject to us having accepted your Order, we will then arrange for delivery of it to you at your nominated address or make it available for collection on the date and time nominated by you.
5.3 The contract between you and Selfridges will be concluded in English and subject to the laws of England and the jurisdiction of the English courts. The contract will complete and title in the Product(s) of your Order (and so risk of loss or damage to such) will pass to you on the later of:
- a) the date on which we receive payment in full for the Product(s); or
- b) the date and time of collection of it from a 'Click & Collect' collection point or delivery by us to your nominated address.
5.4 We shall be entitled to supply Products ordered as part of one Order in instalments and each instalment shall be deemed to constitute a separate contract between you and us. This may mean that Products are dispatched or available for collection separately. We also reserve the right to supply only part of an Order.
5.5 Non-acceptance of your Order (or parts of your Order) may be due to any one or more of the following non-exhaustive reasons:
- a) A product you ordered is out of stock;
- b) We are unable to obtain authorisation for your payment;
- c) We have identified an error with a Product Description;
- d) You are not eligible to order a Product, as set out in clause 4 above;
- e) There is a system or procurement failure;
- f) You fail our customer validation checks; or
- g) There are restrictions (legal or otherwise) or practices in relation to a Product which prevent us from being able to sell or deliver it to you.

Your international credit card provider or bank will determine the exchange rate and may add an additional processing or administration charge which you will be liable to pay.
6.4 By placing your Order and making an offer to buy a Product, you authorise us to transmit information (including any updated information) or to obtain information about you from third parties from time to time and this may include verification checks involving your debit or credit card number or credit reports in order to authenticate your identity, to validate your credit card, to obtain an initial credit card authorisation, to protect you and us from fraud; and to enable us to arrange delivery of your Order to your nominated delivery address.

7.4 You will be the importer for the international delivery of your Order (i.e. any Order delivered to a country other than the UK). Therefore, before placing an Order, it is your responsibility to check that the Products you are planning to import comply with state and federal government import regulations, and that there are no local requirements or restrictions which may affect receipt of your Order. If any customs requirements apply or charges are due, you agree to be responsible for these.
8. Promotional discounts, e-vouchers and gift cards
8.1Selfridges endeavours to ensure that all Products on the Website are available at the same price in all our stores (Oxford Street, London; Bullring, Birmingham; Exchange Square, Manchester; and The Trafford Centre, Manchester). However, from time to time we may offer additional discounts for purchases made via the Website that do not apply in-store, or vice versa. Additionally, items offered as sets on the Website may not be offered as part of a set in-store and individual prices may apply.
