Contract Creation & Electronic Contracting
To place an order on the Website, you must be at least 18 years old and a consumer (not a reseller).
The technical steps required to create a contract between you and us for the sale of any Products are as follows:
- You place the order for your Products on the Site by pressing the ’place order’ 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 Site;
- We accept the following forms of payment: MasterCard®, Visa®, American Express®, Maestro® (previously Switch), Visa Electron®, Visa Delta®, Paypal, Alipay, UnionPay and Klarna. We do not accept cash or cheques for online purchases;
- If you have a voucher, promotion or discount code, this should be entered during the checkout process to be valid;
- We will send you an order acknowledgement e-mail once your order has been placed. This is not an order confirmation or order acceptance from us. Please note that this does not mean that your order has been accepted. Your order constitutes an offer to us to buy a Product;
- When your Product is shipped from our warehouse we will send you a dispatch confirmation e-mail;
- Order acceptance and the completion of the contract between you and us will take place on the dispatch to you of the Products ordered unless we have notified you that we do not accept your order, or that it has been cancelled. The contract will relate only to those Products whose dispatch we have confirmed in the dispatch confirmation e-mail. We will not be obliged to supply any other Products which may have been part of your order until the dispatch of such Products has been confirmed in a separate dispatch confirmation email;
- We will process your payment at the time of preparing your Products for dispatch;
You are encouraged to retain your tax invoice for your records and as a reference to our contract.
Where Theory elects, or is required by applicable law to issue or make available an invoice, Theory reserves the right to issue or make available electronic invoices and you agree to such form of invoicing.
Theory will send you an invoice only within your order. If the invoice is lost by you, please get in touch with our customer service team by email at firstname.lastname@example.org. We will respond by the next working day, Monday to Friday, 9:30am – 5:30pm UK GMT.

Theory uses all reasonable efforts to ensure that all pricing information on the Site is correct and up-to-date, but errors do sometimes occur. If an error occurs and a product is mispriced, Theory is entitled to not accept your order and/or confirm that any contract between you and Theory is complete, as set out herein. Theory is not obliged to supply or deliver any products which are incorrectly priced, as long as payment has not been received from you and has not been processed.
All prices and charges on the Site are in Great British Pounds (£). Delivery charges may apply and these will be clearly displayed during the order process.
The total cost for delivery will be itemised and identified on the payment screen and on your tax invoice. If you have a discount promotional code it is entirely your responsibility to ensure this is included in the relevant section during the order process. A promotional code or discount offer cannot be applied after you confirm your order.
Non acceptance of an order may be a result of one of the following:
- The Product you ordered being unavailable from stock;
- Unable to obtain authorisation for your payment;
- Any risk assessment Theory may have with regards to the transaction;
- The identification of a pricing or Product description error;
- You are under 18;
- We have a suspicion that you may be a reseller;
- You not meeting the eligibility to order criteria set out in these Terms and Conditions;
- The identification, by us, of an error within the Product information, including, but not limited to, price or in relation to a promotion.
If there are any problems with your order we shall contact you as soon as possible. We reserve the right to reject any offer to purchase a Product by you at any time.
Ownership of the Products will only pass to you when we receive full payment of all sums due in respect of the Products, including delivery charges.
Your Right of Termination
You can terminate your contract with us and receive a refund in accordance with the provisions set out in our Returns Policy. This policy forms part of and is an extension of these Terms and Conditions and should be read and understood before purchasing any Product.
Promo & Discount Codes
As explained above any discount and promotional codes should be entered during the checkout process to be valid. Discounts and discount thresholds exclude delivery charges. Discounts cannot be used in conjunction with any other offers.

If a customer wishes to benefit from these exclusive online offers they will need to place an order online. Please note: if you purchase an item that is exclusively on offer online in one of our physical stores at full price, you will not be entitled to a refund for the difference in amount.
We are happy to offer a sale price adjustment on full price items purchased up to 7 days prior to the commencement date of a sale. We will be able to offer a one-off price adjustment on discounted items - should the item be further marked-down – purchased up to 7 days prior to the introduction of the new discount.
Approved price adjustment will me made in the form of a refund via the payment method used at checkout for the order in question.
We are under no obligation to provide a Product to you at an incorrect (lower) price, even after we have sent you a dispatch confirmation email, if the pricing error is obvious and unmistakable and could have reasonably been recognised as you as a miss-pricing.
