Terms of Service for Chill Tubs Ltd
Updated on 2 October 2023
We know not everyone is keen on reading Terms of Service (“Terms”), but they are important and they’re here for a reason which is to protect you and us, and to set out our respective rights and obligations.
Please read these Terms of Service carefully before proceeding with your purchase. This policy will apply to any order you place with Chill Tubs directly on this website or by phone. If you buy directly from one of our Chill Tub retailers please ensure you read their Terms of Service as it may be different from ours.
By accessing our website or making a purchase, you agree to be bound by these terms:
- Who we are
1.1 Chill Tubs Ltd (referred to as “Chill Tubs/we/our/us”) sells ice baths via the website, via our sales team and via our showroom. We are a company registered in England under company number 14959138 and with our registered office at Chill Tubs, Broombank Park, Chesterfield, S41 9RT. Our VAT number is 122 7840 26.
- How these Terms of Service apply to our contract
2.1 After placing an order, you will receive an e-mail from us confirming that your order has been accepted (Order Confirmation). The contract between us (Contract) will only be formed when we send you this Order Confirmation.
2.2 The Contract will relate only to those products whose order we have confirmed in the Order Confirmation (Products). We will not be obliged to supply any other products which may have been part of your order until the order of such products has been confirmed in a separate Order Confirmation.
2.3 We will assign an order number to your order and tell you what it is in the Order Confirmation. It will help us if you tell us the order number whenever you contact us about your order.
2.4 Our website is solely for the promotion of our products in the UK and the EU. Unfortunately, we do not currently accept orders from or deliver to addresses outside the UK or the EU. If you wish to place an order from outside of the UK or the EU please email email@example.com
2.5 We may refuse at our discretion to accept an order:
(a) where we cannot obtain authorisation for your payment;
(b) if there has been a pricing or product description error; or
(c) if you do not meet any eligibility criteria set out in our terms and conditions.
(d) services or information ordered by you are not available;
(e) where goods, services or information ordered by you are not available;
(f) if we do not deliver to your area;
Where we do not accept your order but have processed your payment, we will re-credit your account with any amount deducted by us from your debit or credit card within 14 working days (this excludes weekends, bank holidays and office closures), but in any event within 30 days of your order. We will not be obliged to pay any additional amount as compensation for disappointment, loss of earnings, subcontractors’ time i.e. plumbers, electricians or property damage, or delays or damages caused by external couriers.
2.6 By placing an order with Chill Tubs, you confirm that you are at least 18 years old or have legal consent from a parent or guardian
- Right to Change your Mind
3.1 If you are contracting as a consumer in the UK and change your mind about the Products, you may cancel a Contract at any time up to 14 days from the day you received the Products. In this case, you will receive a full refund of the price paid for the Products in accordance with our Refunds and Returns Policy as set out below. The standard delivery charge of £400 (which is included in price of the Chill Tub) will be deducted from the refund amount.
3.2 To cancel a Contract, you must inform us by email or in writing. In addition, you must return the Products to us in the same condition in which you received them which means, for the avoidance of doubt and without limitation, that they must be in perfect resalable condition and undamaged and unused in any way and also in its original packaging. You have a legal obligation to take reasonable care of the Products while they are in your possession.
3.4 This provision does not affect your legal right as a consumer to change your mind. In summary, the Consumer Contracts Regulations 2013 give you the right to change your mind and cancel a Contract within 14 days from the day you received the Products (or, where the Products are split into several deliveries over different days, 14 days from the day you received the last delivery) and receive a refund. We may reduce the refund of the price (excluding delivery costs) to reflect any reduction in the value of the Products caused by your handling of them in a way that would not be permitted in a shop. The maximum refund for delivery costs will be the costs of delivery by the least expensive delivery method relating to your product that we offer.

7.5 If you return a product for any reason other than a change of mind (for instance, you have notified us because you claim that the Product is faulty), we will examine the returned Product and, where we agree that the Product is faulty and have not been able to provide a replacement or repair, we will notify of your refund via telephone or e-mail within a reasonable period of time.
