Please see the bottom of this page for all courier contact details
*A valid mobile phone number will need to be supplied for this facility
3.1 Delivery address
Items are sent to the stated delivery address provided by the customer on the online order form or over the phone by the customer. Should the delivery address differ from the invoice address, the Customer is to provide both addresses when placing the order, both online and/or over the phone. The parcel will be shipped to the delivery address specifically indicated on the form, subject to 2.1 above.
3.2 Failed Delivery Attempts
In the event of a failed delivery, depending on the circumstances and the courier’s policy, the Customer may receive a note of passage i.e., “calling card” in his/her mailbox. If indeed the courier has left a note, the Customer will need to call the courier in order to arrange a new delivery date, if the Customer does not contact the courier service the item will automatically be attempted delivery the following working day for up to and sometimes surpassing 2 delivery attempts with the exception of Royal Mail packages, these items will require collection after the initial delivery attempt. It also might occur that the Customer does not find a calling card in this case it is the Customer’s responsibility to track his/her orders online with the provided tracking information upon the courier’s website, in order to view package status information and inform either the courier or The Digital Outlet customer services of any issues as soon as possible. Should the package not be re-attempted, collected or delivered to and/or by the customer the package will be returned to The Digital Outlet where a redelivery fee will be applicable.
3.3 Late Delivery
At times a parcel may not be delivered within the expected time allotment or stated delivery time frame given by the courier and/or The Digital Outlet and the delay extends too long we would expect the Customer to contact The Digital Outlet in order to open an enquiry to establish the whereabouts of the parcel, i.e. the parcel may be lost/stolen/missing.
Please do note that in the case of delivery a working day is classed as any day other than weekends or public holidays.
3.4 Loss of the parcel
Should such a situation arise, The Digital Outlet is compelled to respect the time-frames set by the couriers in regard to declaring the loss of the package, processing a claim with the courier and then refunding the shipment or replacing the item for the customer. Hence, the Customer is also bound to the same time-frames.
In order for The Digital Outlet to officially declare a parcel lost, the Customer has 2 days to declare the loss of a parcel in the UK, starting from the date he or she received the shipment confirmation e-mail. Beyond this time period, no claim will be accepted.
*Please note that for International shipments this will be extended in accordance with the courier service you select, we require notification within 2 days of the delivery estimation date.
Should the parcel be declared as lost within the above-mentioned time, The Digital Outlet will attend to filing a claim with the courier and may eventually ask the Customer for additional documents to complete the composition of the file’s content. The Customer will then need to send the information as soon as possible. The final response related to claims is given by the courier within a one to three-week period. The nature of the response can be one of two types: either the parcel is found and then sent back to the Customer by standard procedure, or the parcel is declared as lost by the courier and The Digital Outlet informs the Customer. In this case, and in accordance with the customer’s wishes, The Digital Outlet can make a second shipment of the order or proceed by fully refunding the Customer for the total amount paid.
In the event of loss, The Digital Outlet will send the customer a (P101) Non-Receipt Declaration form, which will be used as part of the investigation process. This form will be a declaration of non-receipt and should further investigation and/or GPS data prove that the item has been delivered successfully to the correct location then this will be used as part of a legal case towards the recipient. This may or may not involve a police investigation and will not be limited to the purchaser of the goods but also the individual/individuals who signed/received the goods at the specified delivery location. Please contact our customer service team to enquire further about this form in the event of any lost goods. Timeframes for completion and replacement will vary on a case to case basis.
3.5 Receipt of parcel
When the items are delivered to the Customer, you will be asked to sign for the goods as an acknowledgment of receipt. If a parcel comes partly or totally damaged, the Customer’s reservations must be written on the delivery note in the presence of the courier.
Should no reservation be mentioned, the parcel is considered as delivered in good condition and no subsequent claims or complaints will be accepted by The Digital Outlet. Should the customer want to preserve recourse against the courier, he/she must put in a claim in writing to the courier within 3 days (public holidays excluded) following the day of delivery. This claim will then be a matter between the customer and respective courier.
Any unclaimed parcel that is returned to The Digital Outlet can be sent back to the Customer provided that they pay the delivery fees. Should there be any issues with the package relating to contents, missing or otherwise we would need to be notified within 48 hours of the time of delivery to ensure legitimacy of this claim, otherwise The Digital Outlet would be unable to take any further action.
3.6 Exports/Customs and Duty
The Customer should check with the local authorities of their country of residence about the entry conditions for the ordered items. It is the Customer’s responsibility to make the necessary declaration(s) and/or payment(s) to the appropriate authorities and or officials in their respective country.
The Customer should enquire with their local authorities on the legalities of importing or using the services and items ordered. Should the customer not accept or reject payment of import taxes or duties then a charge will be applied for the cost of the return delivery and the original delivery of the item, the charges will be deducted from the customers original payment and the balance refund upon return of the package.
The Customer should make sure that the technical specifications detailed by the manufacturer respect the legislation of their respective country.
The Digital Outlet cannot be held liable if the Customer does not respect the legislation of the country in which the items will be introduced.
The Digital Outlet will ensure all documents that are required to be provided by The Digital Outlet i.e. FCC Forms will be inclusive with applicable parcels as standard.
4 THE DIGITAL OUTLET REFUND AND EXCHANGE POLICY
We hope that you will be happy with any purchase you make from The Digital Outlet. However, we understand that at times items may not be as expected and should you wish to return an item, you may do so within the timescales and conditions outlined below.
4.1 The Digital Outlet Distance Selling Regulations (Not Applicable for B2B Sales)
All online purchases are subject to distance selling regulations; this allows Customers to purchase an item from our website and then return the item should it not be required and/or not expected for full refund within 14 Calendar days of receipt. To enable this we require the item to be returned with a proof of purchase, in an resalable ‘as new’ condition and in accordance with the The Digital Outlet returns policy.
If you are returning a product, you must confirm your order number or supply proof of purchase. If we are unable to verify your proof of purchase, we regret that we will be unable to issue a refund or exchange. Your statutory rights are unaffected.
If you choose to return an item, please do take care of it whilst it is in your possession. Please return your unused product; with the original packaging, accessories and manuals. Promotional bundles must be returned in their entirety in order for this to be refunded. See below for exclusions:
Distance Selling Regulations specifically excludes the following:
– Opened entertainment products (computer software, movies, music, video games, memory cards and USBs) as these will be deemed used;
– Products purchased with a subscription contract (unless purchased at distance, where you must inform us of your intent to return within 14 Calendar days)
– Mobile top-up cards;
– Items ordered especially for you (i.e. from the manufacturer)
– Any items that we have had to modify to fit in with your installation requirements (e.g. items that have had holes drilled through them).
In the event that the services are provided with your agreement prior to the end of this 14 Calendar day cancellation period, you lose your cancellation rights from the moment that the services are provided to you.
If you return a used item, we reserve the right to refuse a refund or reduce the amount of money refunded for goods returned which show evidence of use beyond the handling necessary to see whether the goods are as expected.
For all goods purchased online and returned within 14 days we would expect all goods to be returned in a resaleable ‘as new’ condition and the goods must not have been used. This would require product seals, packaging and contents to be in-tact. We do understand that box seals would need to be broken to assess the item however we would request that due care and attention is taken not to damage the package when the seals are removed. The extent to which a customer can handle the goods is the same as it would be if you were assessing them in a shop.
When required, a cancellation can be made using the model cancellation/returns form within the ‘Product Returns’ Section of your The Digital Outlet account. The Model Cancellation form may be accessed through your account, please just click login or my account at the top of every page, and then enter your e-mail address and password, then proceed to the returns section of your account.
A refund of all monies received, including the outbound delivery cost, within 14 days of cancellation of the services contract or within 14 days of receiving goods back will be processed as standard, subject to these terms and conditions. If you are able to provide proof of return before we receive the goods back, you should receive a refund within 14 days of sending that proof.
In the case of unwanted goods, The Digital Outlet will not cover the cost of the postage fee incurred to return the goods to us.
The Digital Outlet currently offers a Free domestic delivery service and this would be classed as our basic rate, please note that any difference in cost between this and your original chosen delivery fee will not be returned.
In the case of faulty goods or incorrect goods returned within 14 days, If you choose to have the goods delivered by more expensive means than the cheapest standard delivery option offered/available, you will not receive a refund of the full outbound delivery cost, but only the cost of the standard delivery option which could have been chosen.
RETURN DELIVERY FEES: If the Customer decides to return their parcel by their own means, the refund of the expenses will not exceed the minimum delivery charge required by a trusted parcel service to return the item to us. Any service used above and beyond the standard rate will not be covered under this policy. Proof of posting will be required. Please ensure The Digital Outlet Customer Services are consulted prior to any return fees being paid. All postage refunds must be agreed with the The Digital Outlet Customer Service Team, in writing, prior to return. The goods are the customers responsibility until received by The Digital Outlet.
Where goods received are faulty or not fit for purpose or as described, customers will have different rights which are covered by the Return under warranty policies. This Policy does not affect your legal rights.

4.3.4 Returning Goods to The Digital Outlet after 14 Days (FAULTY)
Here at The Digital Outlet we are always sorry to hear of any problems that you may be having with your purchase. If a fault occurs within 14 days of purchase then a refund or exchange would be available, should your product become defective after 14 days then your product may be covered under the manufacturer’s warranty period (Normally for a period of 12 months or more) or alternatively under The Digital Outlet’s 3 months warranty for refurbished products. In all cases where the product is returned to The Digital Outlet we would always need to assess and confirm the issue.
In all cases you may wish to visit the manufacturer’s website or contact them directly, very often they may be able to offer troubleshooting and support for the issue you have with your product and this would result in a much swifter process. Please see manufacturer contact details at the bottom of this page.
As your point of sale, The Digital Outlet would always be able to assist in a return to our premises and we will then deal directly with the manufacturer on your behalf.
Please be aware that items returned directly to us will experience a longer turnaround time than by contacting the manufacturer directly and that is why we would advise dealing with the manufacturer initially as you would have the problem resolved far quicker that way.
When you return your device, (if applicable) you’ll need to ensure that it’s unlocked and free of security software that might prevent us from being able to access it. If the device is locked, disabled or out of warranty cover when you return it and we provide you with a replacement device, we may have to charge you the full cost of the device and /or not process a refund (if applicable).
When returning goods to The Digital Outlet you’ll also need to supply:
All the original parts
Any accessories or free gifts
Certificates, manuals, and warranty cards
Packaging (Box, Internal Packaging etc…)
Once back with The Digital Outlet, providing this is within the warranty period and terms, the item will be forwarded to the Manufacturer for assessment and subject to the outcome of this a replacement (In some cases this may be a manufacturer refurbished item) or repaired item will be returned to the consumer.
All returned goods will be dealt with by The Digital Outlet Customer Services at their discretion and will be dealt with strictly in accordance to these terms and conditions.
To contact our returns team, please just click login or my account at the top of every page, and then enter your e-mail address and password. If the item has been returned to The Digital Outlet directly, then a return would be rejected or subject to associated charges should the item show any signs of the following –
• Changes to the manufacturer standard settings
• Attempts to tamper with manufacturer fixings or seals or software.
• Any personal data upon the unit, removable or not.
• Seals upon software have been broken
• The device has non-standardised pin(unlock) code
• Manufacturer content (Software) has been removed/deleted
• The issues with the device are not covered by the manufacturers warranty
*The Digital Outlet will not take responsibility for lost data as a result of returning a device for replacement/repair or refund.
If your return to the manufacturer does not conform to warranty standards and conditions this would be deemed outside of the manufacturers warranty. The Digital Outlet would then be unable to provide the remaining warranty on the product and a chargeable repair and assessment fee may be applicable by the manufacturer and/or The Digital Outlet for this and future repair work.
This policy does not affect your statutory rights.
4.3.5 Returning Goods to The Digital Outlet after 14 Days (NON-FAULTY)

This policy does not affect your statutory rights.
4.3.6 RETURN CHARGES
In cases where your return is outside of the manufacturers warranty terms a charge may be applicable for the repair and/or the return of the Handset, these charges are variable and dependant on the individual manufacturer; the cost(s) will be provided to the customer in a formal manner and will be required to be paid in order to have the faulty item repaired. No, chargeable repairs will be made without the customers consent. Should the customer not wish to pay the repair fee there will be both an assessment fee, again determined by the manufacturer, as well as a returns cost; The returns cost will encompass both the cost for the manufacturer to return the item to The Digital Outlet as well as the value of The Digital Outlet shipping the item back to the customer.
Upon the provision of a quote for a faulty repair by the manufacturer, the customer will be bound by a 7-day rejection period, should the repair and cost not be agreed within 7 days of the repair quote The Digital Outlet will ensure the item is returned to the customer with the aforementioned charges being applicable.
Any repairs carried out on the item without the knowledge or authorisation of The Digital Outlet and the manufacturer will immediately void the warranty you hold upon the product.
In cases where items are returned and no fault is found there will be a charge for the assessment and the return of the non-faulty item, this charge will be at the discretion of our returns team.
DISPUTED CHARGES: Where due care has not been taken with the item and a repair fee is required, a charge may be applied based upon The Digital Outlet Customer Services and the manufacturers assessment. Should the customer disagree with this assessment then it may be possible to have an independent service centre assess your return. Should the outcome of this assessment be the same as the manufacturer then all associated charges will be forwarded to the customer. Refusal to make payment for these charges within 14 days may result in the manufacturer disposing of your item.
RETURN DELIVERY FEES: If the Customer decides to return their parcel by their own means, the refund of the expenses will not exceed the minimum delivery charge required by a trusted parcel service to return the item to us. Any service used above and beyond the standard rate will not be covered under this policy. Proof of posting will be required. Please ensure The Digital Outlet Customer Services are consulted prior to any return fees being paid. All postage refunds must be agreed with the The Digital Outlet Customer Service Team, in writing, prior to return. The returned item is the responsibility of the customer until received by The Digital Outlet.

We will cover the cost of returning the item to us only if the item is faulty upon receipt by the customer.
NOTE: If the Customer decides to return their parcel by their own means, the refund of the expenses will not exceed £7.99.
4.5 REFUNDS UPON RETURNED GOODS (Not Applicable for B2B Sales)

8. WEEE REGULATION:
The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Directive is now UK law. The legislation aims to make producers pay for the collection, treatment, and recovery of waste electrical equipment. The regulations also mean that suppliers of equipment like high street shops and internet retailers must allow consumers to return their waste equipment free of charge.
The amount of WEEE we throw away is increasing by around 5% each year, making it the fastest growing waste stream in the UK. Much of the UKs WEEE ends up in a landfill, where the lead and other toxins it contains can cause soil and water contamination. This can have a harmful effect on natural habitat, wildlife and also human health.
Many electrical items that we throw away can be repaired or recycled. Recycling items helps to save our natural finite resources and also reduces the environmental and health risks associated with sending electrical goods to landfill.
Distributors of new Electric and Electronic Equipment (EEE) have a part to play in reducing the amount of WEEE going into landfill sites. www.thedigitaloutlet.co.uk is obliged under these regulations to offer our customers free take-back of their WEEE on a like-for-like basis when they buy a new Electrical or Electronic product from us. For example, if a customer bought a new Handheld Computer from us we would accept their old Handheld Computer and prevent it going into a landfill site by disposing of it safely. Customers must return their WEEE item to us within 30 days of purchasing their new item.
Under the WEEE Regulations, all new electrical goods should now be marked with the crossed-out wheeled bin symbol shown below: Goods are marked with this symbol to show that they were produced after 13th August 2005, and should be disposed of separately from normal household waste so that they can be recycled.
Under the Waste Battery Regulations The Digital Outlet are now offering a take back scheme for all portable waste batteries. You can return your waste batteries in person at The Digital Outlet, 14b Cookley Wharf Industrial Estate, Leys Road, Brierley Hill, DY5 3UP (Please do not post). Alternatively, you can find your local waste portable battery recycling facility at www.recyclenow.co.uk
