1. This page may not look as exciting as the rest, but it's just as important because it contains the terms and conditions ("Conditions") that apply when you use the bockabocka.com website ("Website") and/or purchase any of the products ("Products") listed on this Website. By using our Website and/or placing an order with us, you are agreeing to all of the Conditions below.
2. Whilst we spend most of our days designing original, colourful underwear, occasionally we take some time to update these Conditions and so you should always check them before you place an order, as the latest version will apply. These Conditions are v1.1 and were last updated on 28 December 2019.
3. These Conditions don't affect your statutory rights.
1. bockabocka.com is the website of Bocka Bocka, which is the trading name of Bocka Bocka Ltd ("We", "Us", "Our"), a company registered in England and Wales under company number 10180471.
2. Our registered office is Haddon House, Maddox Park, Bookham, Surrey, KT23 3BW, United Kingdom.
To shop with us, you need to:
1. Be at least 16 years old;
2. Have a credit or debit card or payment method that we accept;
3. Be authorised to use that credit or debit card or payment method;
4. Be ordering the Products for domestic and private use only; and
5. Be resident in a country that we deliver to.
1. When you place an order, you'll receive an email acknowledging receipt of your order. This email will detail the Products ordered, cost, delivery address and method, and payment address and method. Please note that this email does not constitute an acceptance of your order by us.
2. You should check the details in this email are correct. If they’re not, then get in touch with us via our Contact Form as you may be able to cancel your order within a short period of ordering.
3. After you submit your order, we contact your bank, card issuer or online payment service for authorisation to take payment from your account. We won't start processing your order until payment has been received in full. We'll confirm acceptance of your order by sending you a further email confirming that the order is being processed ready for dispatch.
4. At that point, the contract ("Contract") is made between you and us based on these Conditions. No other person shall have any rights to enforce any of its terms. The Contract will complete upon delivery to your nominated delivery address.
5. All orders are subject to product availability and confirmation of the order price. Very occasionally, we may need to refuse or cancel an order (even if we’ve previously confirmed it). This could be because we can’t obtain authorisation for your payment, or you fail our customer validation checks. If this happens to you and you think we’ve made a mistake, please don’t take offence – get in touch with us and we’ll see what we can do.
We love the fact that we have so many loyal customers around the world. However, please note the following if your delivery address is outside the UK:
1. You are responsible for the payment of any import duties, taxes, and customs charges that may be applied once the delivery reaches your country.
2. We don’t offer free exchanges on Products returned from outside the UK. Instead, we’ll issue a refund once the return’s received by our UK warehouse (provided that it is new and unworn and in its original packaging).
3. If you're returning Products from outside of the UK, please ensure that the parcel and any accompanying paperwork are clearly marked as ‘returned goods’.
4. We can’t guarantee that the Products for sale on this Website comply with the laws and regulations of jurisdictions outside the UK; to the extent that local laws and regulations are applicable, you're responsible for compliance with them.
We take great care to ensure that all information on the Website about our Products is up-to-date, accurate and reliable.
But because we’re so busy designing and making colourful, original underwear, there may be occasions when we make a typo in a product description or forget to update that a product is out of stock.
Any such errors are unintentional and we reserve the right to correct them at any time, including after you've placed your order. If we discover an error in respect of an order that has yet to be delivered, we’ll tell you ASAP and give you the option of reconfirming your order or cancelling it.
However, if you order a Product and the price published on the Website is incorrect for any reason, we'll email you to inform you that we haven't accepted your order, and that your order's been cancelled. We'll let you know the correct price of the Product and you may re-order it if you wish. We shall be under no obligation to fulfil an order for a Product that was advertised at an incorrect price.
1. The Products we make are lovingly hand cut and hand stitched. This means that there can be slight variations in detail from pair to pair.
2. In addition, the production of our underwear involves the use of digital printing, which is an art not a science. This means that there can be slight variations in colour and tone from pair to pair.
3. Finally, factors such as the display capabilities of your device mean that there may be differences in colour, texture or detail between the images on this Website and the actual Products.
4. We cannot be held responsible or liable for any of the differences in 7.1-7.3 above. If you are not satisfied with your purchase, simply return the Products following the instructions on this Website.
5. Our philosophy is to continually improve our Products, and so we reserve the right to make minor technical changes without affecting function, quality or price.
All Bocka Bocka Products are designed in London by Stephen and Peter and then made in Portugal. We regularly visit all of our Portuguese suppliers to ensure that they adhere to our strict quality, environmental, and ethical standards.
1. Goods will be sent to the delivery address that you provide when you order, subject to confirmation by us.
2. Before you finalise your order, you’ll be given various delivery options to choose from with estimated delivery times. We try our best to meet all delivery times but sometimes there may be delays for reasons that are out of our reasonable control – e.g., because of postal strikes, governmental actions, or bad weather. We are not liable for any such delays. We will keep you updated as much as we can and you should be able to track your parcel’s progress.
1. In the unlikely event that you receive Products which were not what you ordered or which are damaged or defective, or are of a different quantity to that stated on your order form, we shall make good any shortage or non-delivery, replace or repair any damaged or defective Product(s), or refund the amount you paid for the Product(s) in question provided that:
1.1. You notify us of the problem via our Contact Form within 14 days of receipt of the Product(s);
1.2. Where necessary, you send off the Product(s) within 14 days of notifying us of the problem (please note that postage costs for returning the Product(s) to us are your responsibility); and
1.3. The Products are ‘new and unworn’ (which means that there are no marks on either the underwear or the original packaging and the underwear has not been worn) and are in their original packaging.
2. If conditions 10.1.1-10.1.3 are met, we’ll refund you the price you paid for the Product(s). However, please note that we may reduce your refund to reflect any reduction in the value of the Product(s) if this has been caused by your handling them in a way which would not be permitted in a shop. Please also note that we don't refund your original delivery cost unless you're an EU customer and you cancelled your order under the Directive on Consumer Rights. We’ll process any refund due to you by the method you used for payment within 14 days of our receipt of the returned Product(s).
1. If you’re a customer in the European Economic Area (“EEA”), you have the right to cancel the Contract if you change your mind and communicate this to us within 14 days of receipt of the Products. The easiest way to do this is to contact us via our Contact Form.
2. If you cancel the Contract under clause 11.1 after the Products have been dispatched, you must return them to us. You must send off the Products within 14 days of telling us that you wish to cancel the Contract. Please note that postage costs for returning the Products to us are your responsibility.
3. If you cancel your Contract under clause 11.1, we'll:
3.1. Refund you the price you paid for the Products. However, please note that we may reduce your refund to reflect any reduction in the value of the Products if this has been caused by your handling them in a way which would not be permitted in a shop;
3.2. Refund the cost of standard delivery to your delivery destination; and
3.3. Process any refund due to you by the method you used for payment within 14 days of our receipt of the returned Products.
4. The right to cancel the Contract under clause 11.1 only applies if the Products are ‘new and unworn’ (which means that there are no marks on either the underwear or the original packaging and the underwear has not been worn) and are in their original packaging.
1. We may end the Contract at any time by writing to you if:
1.1. You do not make any payment to us when it is due;
1.2. You do not, within a reasonable time of us asking for it, provide us with information that is necessary for us to provide the Products;
1.3. You do not, within a reasonable time, allow us to deliver the Products to you;
1.4. We accept and process your order where there is a pricing error that is obvious and unmistakable and which could reasonably have been recognised by you as a mispricing; or
1.5. You apply a voucher code to your order that is invalid for your order or that has expired.
2. If we end the Contract in any of the situations set out in clause 12.1, we'll refund any money you have paid in advance for the Products we haven't provided but we may deduct or charge you reasonable compensation for the costs we'll incur as a result of your breaking the Contract.
