10.1 Delivery Address
Delivery will be to the Delivery Address selected or provided by you in the Ordering Web Pages. If no address was selected, then delivery will be to the address at which your payment card is registered, or to any other address you have provided. Please note that we only deliver to premises located in Ireland (including Northern Ireland) and the UK.
10.2 Delivery Days
We only deliver on working days, within the working hours specified on our Website (or if not specified, between 8am and 6pm). Any statements as to delivery within a number of days should be read as working days, and if a bank or other public holiday falls within any delivery period then you should allow an extra two working days for delivery. If you order after 12.00 p.m., please calculate your delivery time as if your order had been placed the following working day.
10.3 Delivery Time scales
We will use reasonable efforts to deliver the Goods by the delivery dates or within the delivery time scales stated in the Ordering Web Pages, or our standard delivery time scales stated on our Website, if a specific time scale has not been stated in the Ordering Web Pages. However, delays are occasionally inevitable due to unforeseen factors beyond our control and therefore delivery times are not guaranteed. Subject to the next sentence in respect of consumers, if we do not make a delivery date and we fail to deliver within 30 days and any additional period of time as may be agreed with you, then you may cancel the contract and obtain a refund of any amounts you have paid under the contract. This shall be our sole liability and your sole remedy for late or non-delivery.
We may make delivery of the Goods by instalments.
10.5 Failure to Receive the Goods
If delivery is attempted within our stated delivery hours and you are not present to collect the products or you unreasonably refuse to take delivery of the products, then we may abandon the delivery attempt, charge you our direct costs of returning the products to the depot, a reasonable storage charge, and another delivery charge for re-delivering the products at another time. We will give you the option of collecting the products from our depot or requesting further delivery attempts at further delivery charge. We will store the products for a maximum of 2 months, after which we may sell the products and (if we have not refunded to you the price for the products) account to you for the proceeds less our reasonable storage costs and any other amounts which you are liable to pay us.
10.6 Delivery Note
All deliveries must be signed for before our carrier will release them to you. Signing for delivery is for simple proof of receipt purposes and will not affect any of your other rights. Please make sure you keep the packing list enclosed with your Goods, as this will be important if you are returning the Goods later on.
Unless an installation service is provided as part of your Goods order, you will be responsible for unpacking and installation of any Goods.
10.8 Inspection on delivery
When you receive the Goods you should immediately inspect them for damage and faults, and you should inform us by end of the following working day if you do not consider that you have received the Goods you ordered, and within 10 working days of receipt of the Goods if you consider that the Goods are faulty or damaged, otherwise the Goods will be considered to have been correctly delivered, free from damage or faults and in good working order. This will be without prejudice to any damage or fault you could not have discovered on reasonable inspection of the Goods and your statutory rights or right to cancel the contract if you are a Consumer are not affected.
If you are a Business Purchaser, risk in the Goods shall pass to you on delivery. If you are a Consumer, risk in the Goods shall pass to you when you acquire the physical possession of the Goods.
10.10 Retention of Title
Title to the Goods passes to you on delivery, unless the Price or any other amount payable by you is outstanding at delivery, in which case title is retained by us until you have paid in full the Price and all other amounts payable under the contract. You agree that we may still sue for the Price, notwithstanding that title has not passed. If you are a Business Purchaser, you also agree that your right to possession and use of the Goods shall cease if any amount payable by you under the contract becomes overdue, or you enter into liquidation or administration, and that we shall be entitled to enter any premises where the Goods are kept for the purposes of repossessing them.
11. CANCELLATION RIGHT
Where you are a consumer, then you have the right to cancel the contract for any products without giving any reason, under the Consumer Contracts (Information, Cancellation and Additional Payments) Regulations 2013 (the “Cancellation Regulations”), on and subject to the terms detailed below.

You may exercise your right to cancel at any time up to the time stated below (the “cancellation deadline”). The cancellation deadline is 14 days after delivery of the products.

If you are a business, we must receive your statement before the end of the cancellation deadline.
11.4.3 Methods of informing us
You can exercise your right to cancel in any manner you decide, but we would prefer one of the following: e-mailing us, telephoning us, or contacting us using any details on our website at http://www.kilkennyknifeandtool.com or writing to us at Finnan, Ballyragget, Co.

This includes if you return the products with damage that was not present on delivery, or missing anything that was present on delivery. You agree to pay such amount on demand, and you agree that that we may deduct such amount from any refund which we are obliged to make to you.

11.7 Service Contracts
If any services are being purchased under the contract, then you confirm that you request the services begin before the end of the cancellation deadline, and you agree that if you subsequently cancel, you shall pay us an amount for such services which is in proportion to what services have been performed until you cancelled, in comparison with the full coverage of the contract. You agree to pay such amount on demand, and you agree that that we may deduct such amount from any refund which we are obliged to make to you.
