Delivery Terms and Conditions

Historic Football Books will despatch the Products ordered by you to the address you give for delivery when you place your order. You may specify a delivery address which is different from your invoice address, if, for example, you would like Historic Football Books to deliver the Products directly to a friend, a relative, or to your place of work.

Unless you have cancelled your order prior to delivery, you will become the owner of the Products once they have been delivered to you. In any case, after delivery they will be held at your own risk and Historic Football Books will not be liable for any loss, damage or destruction to the Products except insofar as it arises from an inherent defect in any of the Products.

Orders placed after 12pm midday on a Friday afternoon or over a weekend will begin production on Monday. A day is defined as a working day – Monday to Friday.

Cancellation and Returns Policies
You have a legal right to cancel an order in respect of items which are not personalised or made to your specifications (“bespoke items”) and this is set out under “Cancellations” below.

Unless there has been an error on our part, or the item you purchased is defective, you have no right to cancel and we cannot accept returns on ‘Personalised’ or ‘bespoke’ items, whether by name or date, as these cannot be sold to anyone else. Our website is designed to give customers every opportunity to check all input/personalisation details and dates.

Right to Cancel
You have the right to cancel a contract for an item which is not personalised/bespoke within 14 days without giving any reason.

The cancellation period will expire after 14 days from the day on which you acquire, or a third party other than the carrier and indicated by you acquires, physical possession of the goods. In the case of a contract relating to multiple goods ordered in one order and delivered separately the cancellation period will expire after 14 days from the day on which you acquire, or a third party other than the carrier and indicated by you acquires, physical possession of the last good.

To exercise the right to cancel you must inform us, Historic Football Books, by post at Enterprise House 97 Alderley Rd Wilmslow Cheshire SK9 1PT, by telephone; number 07534 392845, or by email to enquiries@historicfootballbooks.com

To meet the cancellation deadline, it is sufficient for you to send your communication concerning your exercise of the right to cancel before the cancellation period has expired.

Defective Items

The item(s) must be returned in the condition in which you received it within 30 days of delivery. We cannot be held responsible for packages lost in transit, as you are responsible for returning the items to us, we recommend sending the packages by Recorded/Special Delivery.
