We are not liable for any loss or damage resulting from distributed denial-of-service attacks, viruses, or other technologically harmful materials that may infect your computer equipment, software, data, or other proprietary materials due to your use of this Website or downloading any material from it, unless such loss or damage arises from our negligence.

Ownership and Use of Content
You retain full ownership of the content and information you post on the Website. However, for content that is protected by intellectual property rights, such as photos and videos ("IP content"), you grant Barnshenn a non-exclusive, transferable, sub-licensable, royalty-free, worldwide licence to use, reproduce, modify, edit, adapt, publish, translate, create derivative works from, distribute, perform, and display such material globally.

Barnshenn Rewards and Discount Terms
A Barnshenn Reward refers to a single-use voucher (£) or percentage discount (%) added to My Rewards. Only one Barnshenn Reward can be applied per order. Barnshenn Reward vouchers (£) are subject to a minimum spend requirement. Additionally, Barnshenn Rewards may have an expiration date, which will be specified in the reward notification emails you receive. It's important to note that Barnshenn Rewards can only be redeemed on full-price items and cannot be used in conjunction with any other offers or promotions, such as Multibuys.
Barnshenn Discount Codes
At the Barnshenn checkout, you can use a discount code to claim a voucher amount (£) or a percentage (%) off your qualifying order. Please note that only one discount code can be used per order. All discount codes have an advertised expiration date and must be used before they expire. Discount codes can only be used on full-priced items and cannot be combined with any other offers or promotions, including Multibuy Offers.
Terms of Offers
Offers, also known as Multibuys, are exclusively available on the Barnshenn websites. We reserve the right to withdraw an Offer at any time, even before the advertised expiry date. It's important to note that multiple Offers can be used in a single transaction.
These Offers are subject to availability and are applicable only to selected full-price products. Discounts are automatically calculated at the basket and do not cover delivery charges.
In the event of a refund, the discount applied to the original order will be taken into account. For example, if an item that was part of a multibuy is returned, which no longer meets the multibuy terms, the remaining kept items will revert to their full price. The refund amount for the returned item will reflect the revised value of the original order without the multibuy discount applied.

Terms of Sale
By placing an order, you are making an offer to purchase a product and agreeing to the following terms and conditions. All orders are subject to availability, and the confirmation of the order price.
The dispatch times may vary depending on availability, and any guarantees or representations regarding delivery times are subject to potential delays caused by postal issues or unforeseen circumstances beyond our control. For more information, please refer to our Delivery Charges notice.
To enter into a contract with Barnshenn, you must be at least 18 years old and possess a valid credit or debit card issued by an acceptable bank. Barnshenn reserves the right to refuse any requests made by you and may choose to close your Barnshenn account at its sole discretion. If your order is accepted, we will notify you via email and confirm the party with whom you have entered into a contract. Usually, the contract will be with Barnshenn, but in some cases, it may involve a third party. When a contract is made with a third party, Barnshenn acts neither as an agent nor a principal, and the terms of sale will be provided by the third party. When placing an order, you affirm that all the details you provide are true and accurate, you are authorised to use the credit or debit card for the order, and there are sufficient funds to cover the cost of the goods. The prices of foreign products and services may fluctuate, and all advertised prices are subject to such changes. Please exercise caution when purchasing goods as gifts for individuals under 18 years old, as some items may not be suitable for them.
a. Our Contract
i. Upon placing an order, you will receive an acknowledgment email confirming that we have received your order. This email serves as an acknowledgment and does not constitute acceptance of your order. A contract for the purchase of goods will only be formed once your payment has been approved by us, and we have debited your credit or debit card.
b. Pricing and Availability
i. While we strive to ensure the accuracy of all details, descriptions, and prices displayed on our website, errors may occur. If we identify an error in the price of any goods you have ordered, we will inform you as soon as possible and provide you with the option to confirm your order at the correct price or cancel it. If we are unable to contact you, we will consider the order cancelled. If you cancel an order for which you have already made payment, you will receive a full refund. Prices include VAT where applicable, and delivery costs will be added separately. Any additional charges will be clearly indicated and included in the 'Total Cost.'
ii. The Service may contain typographical errors, inaccuracies, or incomplete or outdated information. Therefore, we reserve the right to correct any errors, inaccuracies, or omissions and to modify or update information at any time without prior notice. We also reserve the right to reject any orders based on information provided on the Service that contains errors, inaccuracies, or outdated information regarding pricing, shipping, payment terms, or return policies.
i. Upon receiving your order, we conduct a standard pre-authorization check on your payment card to ensure sufficient funds for the transaction. Goods will not be dispatched until this pre-authorization check is completed. Your card will be debited once the order is accepted.
Exercising your right to change your mind (Consumer Contracts Regulations 2013):
For most online purchases, you have the legal right to change your mind within 14 days and receive a full refund for the products (subject to the conditions outlined in the paragraph below: Deductions from refunds if you are exercising your right to change your mind). We offer a period of 30 days from the day you (or someone you nominate) receives the items to return them to us and receive a full refund. Returning items to Barnshenn using a pre-approved method outlined in our Delivery and Returns Policy is free of charge. There are additional legal rights regarding contract termination, which are explained in more detail below.
Exceptions to the right to change your mind:
You do not have the right to change your mind for personalised products or products sealed for health protection or hygiene purposes once they have been unsealed after delivery.
Your Rights to End the Contract:
Your rights when ending the contract depend on the nature of the purchased items, whether there is a fault, our performance, and the timing of your decision to end the contract:
(a) If the purchased items are faulty or misdescribed, you may have the right to end the contract (or have the product repaired or replaced or receive a refund), as detailed in the paragraph 'Summary of your Legal Rights' below.
(b) If you want to end the contract due to our actions or what we have communicated about future actions, refer to the paragraph 'Ending the contract because of something we have done or are going to do' below.
Ending the contract because of something we have done or are going to do:
If you are ending the contract for one of the following reasons (a) to (e), the contract will terminate immediately, and we will provide a full refund for any undelivered products. You may also be entitled to compensation. The reasons are as follows:
(a) We have informed you about an upcoming change to the product or these terms, and you do not agree (see section b. Pricing and Availability under Terms of Sale above).
(b) We have informed you of an error in the price or description of the product you have ordered, and you do not wish to proceed (see section b. Pricing and Availability under Terms of Sale above).
(c) There is a significant risk of substantial delays in the supply of the products due to external events beyond our control.
(d) We have temporarily suspended the supply of the products for technical reasons, or we have notified you about an upcoming suspension of more than two weeks.

Your responsibility to return rejected products
If you wish to exercise your legal rights to reject products or return them within the 365-day period, you must send the products back to us. To do so, use the appropriate return label provided on our Delivery and Returns page. If you choose not to use one of the prepaid services mentioned on Barnshenn's Delivery and Returns page, you will be responsible for the cost of returning the products.
If you believe the goods are unsuitable for postal return, please contact our customer service team via email. If we agree to collect the goods, you must make them available for collection. You will bear the cost of collection, but we will only charge you the direct cost we incur. We will not charge you for administrative, handling, or restocking fees related to the return of the goods.
Deductions from refunds for exercising your right to change your mind:
We may reduce the refund amount (excluding delivery costs) to account for any decrease in the value of the goods caused by your handling them in a manner not allowed in a physical shop. You are permitted to remove goods from their original packaging for inspection purposes, but to receive a full refund, the goods must be returned to us in their original packaging. If we refund you before inspecting the goods and later find that you have handled them in an unacceptable manner, you will need to reimburse us accordingly.
We will refund the price you paid for the products using the same payment method you used for the purchase. We will process any refunds owed to you as soon as possible. If you are exercising your right to change your mind and we have not offered to collect the goods, you will receive your refund within 14 days from the day we receive the product back from you. For instructions on how to return a product, refer to the section titled 'Your obligation to return rejected products'.

Ethical Sourcing Policy
Barnshenn is a trusted and reputable business dedicated to providing high-quality products to its customers. We acknowledge our responsibility to ensure that our suppliers adhere to ethical practices.
We expect our suppliers to maintain a work environment that safeguards the health, safety, and fundamental human rights of their employees. Compliance with national employment laws and regulations is expected, particularly concerning:
Minimum age requirements for employment
Health and safety standards
Freedom of association and the right to collective bargaining
Prevention of harsh or inhumane treatment
Fair rates of pay
Barnshenn is committed to avoiding sourcing goods from countries that violate the aforementioned principles. We also encourage our suppliers to uphold these principles when dealing with their own suppliers.
While it may not always be feasible to directly monitor and control the conditions of every individual involved in the production of our products due to complex supply chains, Barnshenn recognizes the importance of being proactive. As our business grows, we strive to do everything within our means to support and uphold the rights of those involved in the manufacturing of our goods.
