Eligibility to Participate / Registration with SwoopMate / Disqualification
By using SwoopMate, the user declares that they are legally capable of entering into binding contracts and that they are at least 18 years of age.
Employees and relatives of employees of SwoopMate are not permitted to participate in SwoopMate deals under any circumstances.
Each user may register only once using their postal address (registration using PO Boxes or equivalents is not permitted). Additionally, only one user registration per household is permitted.
SwoopMate products and services are offered exclusively to private users and not to commercial or partly-commercial resellers. SwoopMate reserves the right to exclude commercial resellers from participation in the live price drop deals, and if a buyer of a product is found to be commercial, we have the right to refuse to deliver purchased products and have the right to close their user accounts at any time.
During the registration process, the user must choose a username. The user name must not be offensive, be selected to deceive or misinform other users, may not offend common decency or infringe upon the rights of third parties. If we receive information of a username which is illegal or in breach of these terms, this user name can be amended by our staff without prior notice. The corresponding user password is to be kept secret by the user. User accounts created during registration are non-transferable. The user account may be used only by the user and not by anyone else. Any abuse of the user account, be it to the detriment of third parties or to the detriment of SwoopMate, shall result in the disqualification of the user and the reporting of a crime.
Under no circumstances shall SwoopMate or its employees have liability or be liable for any loss that a user may incur as a result of someone else using or seeking to use user’s password or account, either with or without user’s knowledge. However, user could be held liable for losses incurred or prejudice suffered by SwoopMate or another third party due to someone else using or seeking to use user’s account or password. In case you discover any unauthorised use of your account you should change your password immediately and notify us as soon as you can. Swoopmate will never ask for password information.
We reserve the right to temporarily or permanently disqualify or suspend a user, or disable their account. Users will be disqualified when in the reasonable opinion of SwoopMate, a member has violated the laws or the rights of third parties. A user will be disqualified if such action will protect the rights of other users, or to prevent unauthorised manipulation or use of SwoopMate. Examples of such unauthorised usage include (but are not limited to) non-payment of membership fee, non-payment of goods, use of unauthorised third-party software or set up of multiple user accounts by the same individual. Collusion between multiple users is strictly prohibited and will result in the immediate termination of the users accounts.
In case of a breach of these terms by a user, we reserve the right to withhold deliveries.
Membership Fee / Payment
A user will not be able to purchase a product until they pay a monthly membership fee. Upon paying a membership fee, the user will be able to purchase products in our live price drop deals. You can make a purchase at any time at your chosen price.
Each user must be registered and is required to pay a membership fee in order to make a purchase. The membership is valid for 1 month.
You can pay the specified membership fee by clicking on the ‘JOIN NOW’ button on the homepage and then following the on-screen instructions.
The membership is recurring and will renew every month unless cancelled by the user. The current monthly membership fee is £19.99 and is subject to change. You may check your membership renewal price and date in the user account.
The membership fee paid is solely to enable you to make a purchase in our live price drop deals and cannot be used as payment when paying for a product.
The membership fee is non-refundable whether you make a purchase or not.
The payment amount due will be the price that you decide to pay for the product. All purchases are subject to a delivery charge unless otherwise stated.
Payments can be made securely by credit/debit card or via PayPal.
Should a payment not be honoured by a user, a returned payment fee will be charged. The user will be responsible for these fees. We reserve the right to block access to the user’s account until payment in full of the invoice amount, including any fees due to returned payment etc., and to withhold any outstanding deliveries until payment is received in full.
Live Price Drop Deals Procedure
All our deals run in a Live Price Drop format. All deals begin with a pre-determined start price (RRP). As there are no reserve or minimum selling prices, deals will run until the price has dropped to £0.00 or when the product has sold out (whichever comes first). Users can view the latest price drop at any time and make a purchase at their desired price during the live price drop. We advise users to make payment as quickly as possible, after adding the product to the cart as delays can result in other users making the purchase instead. Product quantities are limited and can sell out at any time.
Under no circumstances shall SwoopMate or its employees have liability or be liable for any loss of the membership fee a user may incur as a result of not making a purchase or delaying making a purchase in the hope of achieving a more favourable price. Please be aware that although you can achieve significantly cheaper prices by delaying your purchase, you also run the risk of the product being sold out.
The user who clicks on the “ADD TO CART” button will be entitled to purchase the product at the stated price. However, it’s important to note that due to the nature of our live price drop model, it can generate a lot of user interest due to the significant savings that can be achieved. Due to the fast paced nature of our business model, although unlikely, but it is possible that there may be instances where a high number of users have simultaneously purchased a product at the same price. In the event that a high number of simultaneous purchases are made, then those users whose completed payment reaches our servers first will be entitled to the purchase.
Users are free to wait as long as they wish for the price to drop further before making a purchase but do so at their own risk and will not be entitled to the reimbursement of their membership fee should they be unsuccessful in their purchase.
Limitations on Purchase Quantity/Repeat Purchases
We believe that every user should have an opportunity to purchase products of their choice and at their desired price. This is the reason why we have placed restrictions on purchase quantity. A user will be restricted from adding more than “1” quantity to the cart of any product. Once a user has checked out and completed the transaction, they will also be restricted from making a repeat purchase of the same product. However, users are permitted to make single quantity purchases of as many different products as they wish.
Notification / Acceptance / Payment of Purchased Products
A notification is automatically sent by email to the buyer. The buyer can access all of the important sale information such as the total price (sale price plus delivery costs) and payment options.
The buyer must actively confirm the purchase by following the steps indicated. Full payment of a product can be made through our trusted payment acceptance method. Credit/debit card payments will be processed by Stripe and PayPal. After confirming the purchase and paying the amount due, the buyer will receive a confirmation e-mail.
The item(s) will not be dispatched to the buyer until the total price of the product(s) has been paid to SwoopMate.
Warranty / Returns / Cancellations
Products sold by SwoopMate are brand new, factory sealed and normally come with manufacturer’s warranty. The duration of the warranty varies from manufacturer to manufacturer. We will take all reasonable care to ensure that details, descriptions and prices of products which are featured on our website are correct at the time when the relevant information was entered onto the system. We shall endeavour to keep the website as up to date as possible but can offer no guarantees that the information including descriptions of products on the website is still accurate when a user visits the website and/purchases a product. Images of products may differ from the original.
SwoopMate grants the buyer the right to cancel an order. The right to cancel is in accordance with statutory provisions on mail order sales and e-commerce and begins from the moment the contract is concluded. If a user cancels a contract to which the cancellation provisions apply they are entitled to a refund of the purchase price they have paid in relation to the contract even if the item is not defective in any way. The membership fee is non-refundable. These cancellation rights end 14 days after the day on which a buyer received the item.
An exception to the right to cancel is audio or video recordings or computer software that the customer has unsealed. These items are not eligible for return or refund, unless the item is faulty or not as described. To meet the cancellation requirements, a cancellation notice must be sent to SwoopMate within fourteen days after the day the item was received, accompanied by the original invoice (contained in shipment or email). Notice of cancellation must be given by email to: email@example.com
For a valid cancellation or return to be applicable, a user must return the item unused and unopened and in a saleable condition. We will reasonably decide whether the item is fit for sale upon inspection. Costs of postage for returns will be met by the user (unless items are found to be faulty). If the item is not returned in a saleable condition then the right of cancellation is revoked. Should we incur additional costs for insufficient postage on the return, these costs will be deducted from any previous payment remitted by you.
Delivery of Items
Unless otherwise stated, delivery will be made directly from our warehouse or our supplier’s warehouse to the postal address provided by the customer. The customer is solely responsible for providing a correct and sufficient postal address. If a product should be returned due to an incorrect or insufficient postal address provided by the customer, he/she will be responsible for all delivery costs incurred to resend the product. SwoopMate reserves the right to cancel the order corresponding to the returned item if the customer does not provide a correct and sufficient postal address and does not pay for the additional delivery costs necessary to resend the product.
Deliveries shall be made solely within the United Kingdom mainland (including Northern Ireland) and we endeavour to make deliveries within 7 days after the invoice has been paid but please allow up to 14 days (we will normally deliver a lot quicker than this). However, the delivery times indicated are provided only as a guide and is not guaranteed by SwoopMate. We shall be entitled to involve third parties to satisfy our contractual obligations without being required to notify the customer.
Obvious damage to the item as a result of transport or packaging is to be reported to SwoopMate immediately upon taking delivery.
Should SwoopMate or its suppliers not be able to deliver the item purchased, we shall be entitled to substitute the item with a comparable replacement product with the similar or better features, or provide a refund if this is the user’s preference. We will notify the customer of any delays/problems and explain the circumstances. The user’s statutory rights are not affected.
Withholding Payment / Retention of Title
You agree that products shall remain SwoopMate’s property until payment is received in full of the total price, including the delivery charge.
