We Believe in Excellent Service
We aim to provide high-quality service and all feedback helps us to improve each time.
We hope your experience on our website is a happy one, and we always aim to get your parcels posted out as quickly as humanly possible.
Everyone is allowed one customer account, but you have to be 18 or over to do so. By placing an order on our website, you agree to give:
Your real name
Your e-mail address
Your billing address
A delivery address (this may be the same as your billing address)
A contact phone number (in case we need to speak to you about your order)
If the technology fails us or we make a genuine mistake, your order attempt may be unsuccessful. We will do everything we can to resolve this and aim to put that smile firmly back on your face. Once you have placed an order, you will receive a confirmation e-mail within 24 hours, and then one within 24 hours of your order being dispatched. If something is not in stock, we will let you know as soon as possible after the order has been placed. If we are expecting the item in soon, we may send it in a separate parcel after your main order has been dispatched.
After placing your order you will receive an automated acknowledgement.
If you have a complaint relating to our Terms and Conditions or our products, we will attempt to resolve the complaint using our internal complaints-handling procedure. If the process is exhausted and the complaint is not settled in this way, you may make a request to us for the dispute to be settled by mediation through The Retail Ombudsman. If you make such a request, we shall consider whether or not we wish to use The Retail Ombudsman to try to resolve the dispute but we are not obliged by law to do so. If we agree to submit a dispute to The Retail Ombudsman, we shall notify you and you may (i) complete the online form on the Retail Ombudsman website or (ii) send your complaint using a paper form to The Retail Ombudsman, 33rd Floor Euston Towers, 286 Euston Road, London NW1 3DP. Further information on the Retail Ombudsman can be found here.

Any personal information you provide to The Sound Approach directly or via soundapproach.co.uk will be processed in accordance with our privacy notice.

Events beyond our control
We will not be liable or responsible for any failure to perform, or delay in performance of, any of our obligations under a Contract that is caused by events outside our reasonable control (Force Majeure Event).

Occasionally, parcels going overseas may be delayed at customs control when entering your country. This is beyond our control and we cannot be responsible for the late arrival of parcels detained in this way.
After placing your order you will receive an automated acknowledgement by email. Please note that this does not mean that your order has been accepted. All orders are subject to acceptance by us, and we will confirm acceptance to you by confirming that your order has been dispatched.
Once we accept your order, a contract to purchase and deliver products takes effect between you and The Sound Approach. You pay the sum that you see at the end of the checkout process, together with the delivery. Upon receipt of your order for the products you will be charged for the products and the delivery costs.
Products will be at your sole risk from the time of delivery to you.
When we confirm acceptance of your order by confirming the products have been dispatched a legally binding contract will exist between us. If we do not confirm acceptance we will refund your payment.
Your order constitutes an offer to us to buy a product. If we believe a customer acts against these Terms and Conditions, we reserve the right to cancel or suspend their order.
This includes non-payment of ordered products and fraudulent use of our website and/or sales. We also reserve the right to bar certain e-mail addresses and telephone numbers from accessing our website to place orders. We will not accept an order from any customer who we have suspended.
Ownership of the products will only pass to you when we have received full payment.
A person who is not party to the contract shall not have any rights under or in connection with it.
By ordering from our website, you agree not to commercially resell any of our products. Commercially reselling our products is a breach of these terms and conditions and your agreement with us.
4. Payment and Security
We do not hold your credit card data. You do not enter any credit card data into the The Sound Approach site. When you come to pay for your products you leave our site and your payment is processed through the Worldpay secure server.
We accept Visa and Mastercard, through Worldpay. We also accept PayPal payments.
Payment will be taken in GB pounds (£), and if applicable, your card will be charged according to the exchange rate at that time.
You can also telephone your order to us; call +44 (0)1202 641004.

5. Prices and VAT
Our prices, as stated on our website, are in pound sterling (£) and include VAT, where applicable. You will be charged in pounds sterling even if you don’t live in the UK. We reserve the right to alter prices at any time. Overseas orders may incur bank charges for international transactions.
Products delivered to destinations outside the EU may be subject to taxes, fees, levies or other charges as a result of local legislation or customs formalities and we advise that you check the import charges applicable in any non-EU country before ordering Products to be delivered there.
The recipient of the order is responsible for all customs formalities for the import of the Products, and will be required to pay any additional charges for international delivery, including import duty, formal customs entry, taxes, levies and other charges that may be levied outside the EU. The recipient of the products, not the person placing the order, will receive a separate request for payment of these charges. If you are ordering Products to be delivered to someone else, please ensure they are made aware that they will be responsible for these additional charges.
You (or the recipient of the products if different) will be the importer for all international deliveries of the products. Therefore, before placing an order, it’s your responsibility to check that any products ordered comply with state and federal government import regulations, and that there are no local requirements or restrictions which may affect receipt of your order.
7. Cancellations and Returns
We aim to dispatch orders within one working day, so if you want to cancel an order without incurring a cost for returning unwanted items to us, you will need to do it before your order is dispatched. If you do cancel an order, please call us on +44 (0) 1202 641004 and let us know during office hours, or via e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. If you would like to change anything about an order we would recommend that, in the first instance, you give us a call on +44 (0) 1202 641004 or email us at email@example.com to avoid having to pay for delivery again.
You have a legal right to cancel a contract which starts from the date we confirm your order has been dispatched, which is when the contract between us is formed. If the products have already been delivered to you, you have a period of fourteen days in which you may cancel, starting from the day after the day you receive the products. Days mean calendar days, including weekends and public holidays.
To cancel a contract, please contact us in writing to tell us by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or by sending a letter to The Sound Approach, Enefco House, 19 The Quay, Poole, Dorset, BH15 1HJ. You may wish to keep a copy of your cancellation notification for your own records. If you send us your cancellation notice by email or by post, then your cancellation is effective from the date you sent us the email or posted the letter to us. You need to inform us of your decision to cancel before the 14 day cancellation period has expired.
Where you have cancelled a contract and the products have already been delivered to you, you should return them to us as soon as possible and in any event no later than 14 days after the day you inform us of your right to cancel. You can return products by sending them to our Returns Address below. Unless the products are faulty or not as described, you will be responsible for the cost of returning them to us. You have a legal obligation to keep the products in your possession and to take reasonable care of the products while they are in your possession.
If you cancel a contract within the 14 day cancellation period, you will receive a full refund of the price you paid for the products and any applicable delivery charges you paid for. You will not be refunded for any costs you have incurred for returning the products to us. Where the products have already been delivered to you, we will process the refund due to you as soon as possible and, in any case, within 14 calendar days after the day on which we receive the returned products, or (if earlier) within 14 calendar days after the day you provide us with evidence that the products were returned to us. Where the products have not been delivered to you, we will process the refund within 14 calendar days after the day we were informed of your decision to cancel the contract. Unless you expressly tell us otherwise, we will refund you on the credit card or debit card used by you to pay for the products.
We have a legal duty to supply products that conform with the descriptions and specifications in the contract between you and us. As a consumer, you will always have legal rights in relation to products that are faulty or not as described which are not affected by your cancellation rights above. If you have returned the products to us because they are faulty or mis-described, we will refund the price of a defective product in full, any applicable delivery charges, and any reasonable costs you incur in returning the item to us.
Details of your legal right to cancel and an explanation of how to exercise it are provided in the confirmation of dispatch.

In the event of a damaged parcel
We’re very sorry if the Sound Approach you looked forward to receiving have arrived damaged. We do our best to pack them safely, but even the most lovingly prepared parcel can get dropped or jostled en route to your house. If you send these products back to us within 14 days of receiving them, we will offer you an exchange where possible, or a full refund after we have received the return. In this case, we will pay for the postage of sending these items back to us. Nothing in these Terms and Conditions affects your statutory rights.
9. VAT/GST Queries
Delivery costs will be added to your order and the final total will include VAT at the applicable rate calculated on your products and the cost of delivery.
For orders delivered outside the EU, VAT will not be chargeable, although the total cost of your order will remain unchanged. For those outside the EU, authorities in your country may impose their own duties or taxes on incoming parcels. We are not responsible for any such charges.
10. Your Statutory Rights
Nothing in these terms affects your statutory rights.
We may vary these terms from time to time. If we do we will replace these terms on our website with our new terms.
