3    Product Specific Terms & Conditions

 

3.1    Age Restriction

You must be eighteen (18) years of age to purchase our products. Crème de Vape will not sell products to minors and we reserve the right to cancel any transaction based on our sole discretion where we believe the purchaser intends to purchase products on behalf of a minor. We ask for your birthdate when you order from us, and where required, proof of birthdate will be requested. Please also see Age Verification.

 

3.2    Product Use

The electronic cigarette does not cure a smoker's addiction to nicotine, it merely serves the same purpose as a tobacco cigarette - it delivers nicotine to the user. If you suffer from the disease of Tobacco/Nicotine Dependence Syndrome we recommend you visit your health care provider to discuss NRT (Nicotine Replacement Therapy) or a nicotine harm reduction programme. 
We are not a pharmaceutical company and we do not manufacture or sell medicinal products and we recommend that you seek information from your medical health practitioner prior to your use of any of our products.
It should be noted that nicotine, in high doses, can be harmful. In its pure form, nicotine is classed as a poison, therefore we are required to publish warnings and safety information which you can read here
You agree that these products are to be used at your own risk. Under no circumstances will Crème de Vape be held responsible or liable, directly or indirectly for any loss or damage that is caused or alleged to have been caused in connection with use of, or reliance on any product we supply.

All our flavourings, whether contained in pre-mixed e-liquid, or sold separately as flavour concentrates are certified as safe for general food use under European and/or USA food safety regulations. To further clarify, these regulations are based on their use as food flavours, to be consumed via the digestive system and not vaporised into the lungs. Consumption of some food flavourings via personal vaporisers and electronic smoking devices has not yet been specifically evaluated for human safety. Crème de Vape cannot be held responsible for any claim or damage arising from the use of food flavourings in electronic cigarettes, e-cigs, personal vaporisers or any other form of inhalation device. As with smoking cigarettes, the use of personal vaporisers and the use of food-safe flavourings is undertaken by the user wholly at their own risk.

Goods are NOT supplied on a trial basis or on a 'use or return' basis.

 

3.3    Product Pricing and ordering

The total price of the goods ordered will be the price shown at the time of the order. The full purchase price as well as the cost of packaging and shipment will be clearly displayed on the checkout page before you commit to the order.

Placing items in your cart does not "reserve" them or guarantee that you will be able to order them. Your order is not complete and in the system until you have returned to our site having fully completed payment. Therefore, if you have limited stock or fast selling items in your cart, they could sell out if someone else is purchasing the same item at the same time and completes checkout before you. 

If you forget to order something and place another order later on, please do not ask us to combine your order or refund shipping costs. Multiple orders may automatically be combined by our batch processing system or they may not, depending on where the two orders are in the batch, and it's not something we can alter or accommodate.


3.4    Sales Taxes (VAT)

All our products are duty paid in the United Kingdom and the purchase price includes VAT (sales tax) at the current rate (20%) where appropriate. If you live outside the European Union, VAT will be deducted during the checkout process. Any additional duties or taxes payable by customers outside the UK are the sole responsibility of the customer.

 

3.5    Shipping

Shipping costs are based on the weight and value of the items in your cart and will be calculated when you check out. Free UK First Class P&P is automatically applied at checkout if the goods in your cart exceed £50 in value* (after discounts and coupons) and you are shipping to a UK destination. *Some exclusions apply where products of a certain value may only be sent via Special Delivery so that they are adequately insured during transit.

For guaranteed next-day delivery and enhanced insurance cover, we recommend Royal Mail Special Delivery™ Next Day (subsidised upgrade fee applies). By selecting this option, you ARE NOT purchasing a warranty that your package will arrive the day after you placed your order, you are upgrading the shipping method to the Royal Mail UK Special Delivery™ Next Day Service which will be delivered by 1pm the working day after despatch. Further information about this and other services can be found on our Shipping & Delivery Information Page which also forms part of these terms and conditions of sale.

We aim to process and ship orders the same working day if payment is made before 2pm GMT; otherwise, the next working day. In the event that we are aware in advance that we will not meet this stated target, or where any other situation exists that may affect the shipment or delivery of orders, it will be detailed on our Current Shipping Status information page. 

We are not responsible for packages delayed or confiscated by your internal customs authorities and we are unable to answer any shipping queries by telephone. If you wish to contact us about non-delivery, we ask that you please wait until the usual delivery time period has elapsed, as we won't be able to assist until this time period has passed.

 

You will receive email confirmation once your order has been dispatched and the Royal Mail reference will be located near the bottom of this email, underneath your order details. Please ensure you check your spam filtered emails before contacting us to ask for the tracking reference.

3.6    Product Warranty

We check all products when we receive them from the factory and again before we ship them to you but in the unlikely event that you receive a product that is non-operational from the start, it is considered Dead On Arrival (DOA) and will be replaced (at our own cost) provided you notify us within 3 days of receipt and provided we have sufficient stock of the item on hand, and that you adhere to our returns policy.

E-cigarette batteries and atomisers are essentially consumable items and are expected to degrade and fail over a period of time and this is reflected in our keen pricing. For best performance and optimum safety, we recommend atomisers and coils are replaced on a weekly basis, and batteries are replaced 3-6 months after purchase, depending on use, and regardless of whether or not they still appear to function normally.

Ready-to-use atomisers, cartomisers and heads are sold as single use consumable items and are warranted under the DOA terms if they fail to "fire-up" on first use only or if they do not show a resistance measurement when checked with a multi-meter, and if you notify us within 3 days of receipt. They are non-returnable / non-refundable for any reason with the exception of these DOA terms. Longevity, performance and taste are not covered under warranty. 
Batteries and devices containing fixed non-removable batteries are covered by a 30-day warranty if properly maintained and used in accordance with the instructions and only with the recommended accessories supplied by Crème de Vape.
Mods and Advanced Personal Vaporisers have their own specific warranty terms detailed on the individual product pages.
Rebuildable atomisers and tanks (RBA/RTA) are by their very nature, built by the end-user, and unless otherwise stated within the product description, are not warranted for any specific period of time, and returns other than for genuine manufacturer faults, such as missing parts, mis-machined parts, etc, will not be accepted.
Battery chargers have a 60-day warranty if properly maintained and used in accordance with the instructions, in conjunction with CE/BS approved UK plugs, and with batteries recommended and supplied by Crème de Vape.
E-liquids, cartridges and sundry items including drip tips may not be returned under any circumstances for safety and hygiene reasons.

Further warranty information where it differs from the above is detailed in individual product descriptions. Note that replacement products or parts assume the remaining warranty period of the original purchase (not an entirely new warranty period).

Warranty Exclusions

Your warranty is invalidated if you use our products in combination with other products or accessories not supplied by us due to the potential for damage caused by unknown incompatibilities. This policy is not designed to force you to purchase only Crème de Vape products, but to ensure we are not held responsible for inconsistencies or faults caused by products we did not supply.
We do not recommend, warrant or support the use of sub-ohm atomisers. Please see our Safety information for more details.
E-liquids, cartridges and sundry items including drip tips may not be returned under any circumstances for safety and hygiene reasons.
General wear and tear and user replaceable parts such as springs, are excluded from any warranty offered.
Faults caused by cross-threading parts together are excluded from any warranty offered, unless a manufacturing defect is demonstrated.

If you are not satisfied for any reason, please contact us immediately so that we can do our very best to assist you promptly.

 

3.7    Cooling-off period

By law, customers located in the EU have the right to withdraw from the online purchase of an item within fourteen days of delivery.

Where you are withdrawing from your purchase within the fourteen day cooling-off period, and there has been no error on our part, we will refund the cost of the item. We will not refund shipping charges except where a return is as a result of an error on our part, or faulty goods. This includes the shipping costs we incurred shipping the item to your address, which will be deducted from any refund issued. You will need to pay the return shipping costs. Some items are non-returnable for hygiene reasons. If making a return during your cooling-off period, Items returned must be in unused condition and in original and unopened packaging. Returned items will not be accepted if they do not meet these conditions or a restocking fee may be charged at our discretion. We recommend you appropriately insure any returns as we cannot be held responsible for lost or damaged returns.

All returns must be sent back in full accordance with our Returns Policy.

This cooling-off period does not apply to click & collect transactions.
