(N) Return Policy

Within 60 days (from date of purchase), a PRODUCT may be returned for exchange (or for refund where permitted) subject to the PRODUCT being in its new and unused condition. Exceptions to this are PRODUCTS defined as a 'special order'. It must be 100% complete with all parts, instructions and undamaged packaging, exactly as originally supplied, and so that it is fit for resale. Sorry but we are unable to refund or exchange 'used' or 'installed' PRODUCTS. All returns must be pre-authorised (please call us for an RMA number and return instructions). The return must be received within 14 days of being authorised and we recommend that appropriate shipping insurance is obtained because we are not responsible for any loss or damage of a PRODUCT being returned. Except for warranty claims, failure to request a return after 60 days (from date of purchase) will be deemed to be permanent acceptance of the PRODUCT. Do not attempt to return a PRODUCT without a valid RMA number clearly displayed on the shipping carton as it will not be accepted and will result in being returned to the sender at the sender's expense. All returns must be shipped in a separate, appropriate shipping carton with suitable packing materials to avoid damage.


Shipping costs are not refundable and Solar Illuminations does not arrange or pay for shipping of any PRODUCT being returned unless we have shipped an incorrect PRODUCT, in error, then we will arrange for pre-paid return shipping. Shipping costs to/from our address are the responsibility of the customer regardless of the reason for the return. If a PRODUCT is found to be faulty within the warranty period, it will be repaired or replaced, at our discretion. New and unused returns that are approved to be refunded are subject to a 25% restocking fee. The restocking fee applies to shipments that have been refused, shipments that have not be delivered and orders that have been cancelled after being shipped. Refunds are usually processed within 14 working days from the date returned. Solar Illuminations reserves the right to refuse any non-compliant return and ship the PRODUCT back to the customer (at the customer's expense) thereby refusing the repair, replacement, exchange or refund, where the customer has failed to comply with our Terms, Conditions and Policies. We are not responsible in any way, financially or otherwise, for the installation and/or re-installation of any PRODUCT or any other consequential loss.


A limited number of PRODUCTS offered are defined as a 'Special Order' and are non-returnable and non-refundable. This is mentioned in the product description or technical specifications (access by clicking the green MORE INFO button for any PRODUCT). These PRODUCTS are 'all sales final' and are not eligible to be returned for refund and can only be returned if the PRODUCT is defective which (if under warranty), upon inspection & testing is found to be defective, the PRODUCT will be repaired or replaced (at our discretion) with an identical PRODUCT.


(O) Postage & Delivery

We process all 'in-stock' orders within 5 working days. However most 'in-stock' orders are actually processed and dispatched same day (if ordered before 5pm UK time). If your item is in stock your order should typically arrive within 2-10 working days (after dispatch) subject to the delivery service used. All delivery times are estimated and usually a signature is required at time of delivery. Some products are not eligible for free delivery and some products may be delivered by a third-party courier directly from the vendor or manufacturer. 'Free Standard Delivery' is available on orders over £100 placed and paid for in full on this web site and acceptable for delivery by a regular courier service. Products that are not eligible for free delivery or express delivery include (but are not limited to) any product that must be delivered by a freight service. Freight shipments are those that cannot be delivered by a regular parcel service usually due to weight and/or volume and/or length and/or nature of the shipment. A quotation for freight delivery can be supplied upon request. If you selected 'Free Standard Delivery' or 'Standard Delivery' your order will be sent by standard parcel post and is usually delivered by Royal Mail or Parcel-Force. Allow up to 10 working days for delivery. If you selected 'Express Delivery' your order will usually be sent by UPS courier. Allow up to 5 working days for delivery. For BFPO, extreme rural, remote areas and offshore islands the delivery time may be longer. We will not be held responsible in any way for any unforeseen delays in the delivery process which include, but not limited to: adverse weather; seasonal demand; Act of God; postal strikes or customs delays etc. In the unlikely event of a postal damage claim or a shortage, this must be reported to us with 24 hours from time of delivery. After this time, we are unable to process any claims for damage caused in transit or product shortages. We may require photographic proof to enable us to file a damage claim with the delivery company. Usually once we have all necessary information, we can start to process the claim and send out a replacement part (in place of the damaged part) or a complete new PRODUCT, at our discretion, depending upon the nature of the problem. Once we have proof of delivery, from the courier to the correct address (as supplied by the customer) the parcel(s) is deemed as being successfully delivered and a 'non-delivery' claim will be rejected. We do not deliver to P.O. boxes. If an order is attempted to be delivered but refused by the customer for any reason, or unable to be delivered to the customer for any reason, the customer remains responsible for that order and if it is returned to sender, then all costs associated with the return will be at the customer's expense. In these circumstances a minimum 50% restocking fee will apply, and the original postage costs are not refundable. 'Working Days' are defined as Monday to Friday and exclude all UK & US public holidays. Throughout the months of November and December we are exceptionally busy and order processing times may be longer. There may be postal delays during the month of December due to heavy volumes of mail and parcels. Delivery times in December may extend beyond normal. Orders sent to Ireland and other European countries may be delivered by their respective national postal or parcel service in that country or UPS depending upon the delivery service selected. We reserve the right to select an alternative postal service should the parcel not meet the criteria for the service selected. We are not responsible for any customs fees, duties or VAT, if applicable, at time of import. We reserve the right to apply a 10% cancellation fee to any order that is cancelled prior to dispatch. Cancellation of an order after dispatch is not permitted. We will not be responsible for inbound or outbound postage costs, upon cancellation, after an order has been dispatched, or delivery refusal.


(P) VAT, Duties & Import Fess

We are not responsible for any customs duties, VAT or import duties (if applicable) which may be payable to the courier or other authority at time of delivery.


(Q) Warranty

All our PRODUCTS are supplied with a 12-month limited warranty (from date of purchase) excluding all batteries, including 12 months of technical support. Batteries warranties are supplied by the battery manufacturer and may vary. As from 06/02/17 PRODUCTS sold that are defined as a 'System' must be registered to receive the extended warranty, free of charge. With a valid registration, the 12-month limited warranty coverage would extend to 5 years in total for the system (excluding batteries), and 20 years in total for the solar panel. If a PRODUCT defined as a 'System' is not registered, regardless of reason, then a 12-month limited warranty will apply. It is therefore highly recommended that you register for the free, extended, limited warranty for your PRODUCT at www.solarilluminations.co.uk/warranty-registration-form within 30 days of purchase. The purchaser is responsible for limited warranty registration. If the purchaser is not the end-user, then the purchaser must ensure that the end-user is aware of the limited warranty registration. Solar Illuminations accepts no responsibility for failure to register the limited warranty of a PRODUCT (regardless of reason) and no exceptions apply. Technical support may not be available after 12 months (from date of purchase) if the PRODUCT is not registered.


Limited warranty coverage applies to manufacturing defects only. Solar Illuminations is not responsible for and will not be held accountable for, any labour, equipment, machinery, hardware, parts, packaging or postage charges associated with the installation, removal, relocation or re-installation of any PRODUCT including any incidental or consequential costs, losses or fees. Warranty coverage does not apply to (and is not limited to) the following: PRODUCT misuse; an incorrectly installed PRODUCT; lack of sunshine; low insolation; seasons; weather conditions; geographic location issues etc. These are examples of human error, Act of God and/or natural environmental effects which would not be covered by any warranty. In addition, illumination times may vary and is not covered by any warranty as we are unable to guarantee the illumination time of any solar light that we offer. Should a genuine fault develop within the warranty period, the PRODUCT will be repaired or replaced at our discretion (after inspection and testing) and in accordance with our Terms, Conditions and Policies. The warranty does not cover weathering, corrosion, residue, surface scratches, fading or discolouration of any surface or finish. Also, the warranty does not cover theft, vandalism, damage or destruction (accidental or deliberate), wind, lightning, ice, snow, storm or any other weather-related conditions or Act of God etc. No warranty is provided for any light bulbs or any batteries unless provided by the manufacturer and in such instances, any claim would be directly with the manufacturer. Valid, written proof of purchase is required for all warranty claims. Without proof of purchase warranty coverage will be denied, no exceptions. For PRODUCTS that use multiple LED's or SMD's we do not define the PRODUCT as being defective unless more than 5% of the LED's or SMD's fail to illuminate. The limited warranty is null & void if a PRODUCT has been altered or damaged due to normal wear & tear, abuse, improper maintenance, liquid ingression, improper use, disassembly of parts and/or attempted repair, modification or alteration. To assist with general troubleshooting, we may require several clear photographs of the PRODUCT to ensure that it has been correctly installed and located at a site that is suitable for the PRODUCT to properly function. We do not provide site visits or inspections.


(R) Lowest Price Guarantee

We constantly check and update our prices so that we remain highly competitive.

(i) Our Lowest Price Guarantee applies only to PRODUCTS sold and shipped directly by Solar Illuminations. If you purchase your product from a wholesaler, reseller and any third party, the Guarantee does not apply.
(ii) To qualify for the Guarantee, you must supply full details of the Competitor's product, their published price and current availability in writing (by email, fax or mail) before you make a purchase with Solar Illuminations. The Lowest Price Guarantee does not apply after a sale is completed.
(iii) The Competitor's product must be identical to the product offered by Solar Illuminations. It must be in stock, readily available and in brand new condition. It must be physically located within the United Kingdom only. The Competitor's must be a legitimate British company (with a valid, verifiable company registration and VAT number) and their products must ship from a physical UK address. The Competitor cannot be an auction site or a seller on an auction site.
(iv) The Solar Illuminations price is the price after any discounts, coupons, and promotional discounts have been applied to the PRODUCT (if applicable). Delivery costs are excluded.
(v) In the unlikely event that a Competitor's published price is found to be genuinely lower than the price offered by Solar Illuminations then Solar Illumination will beat that price by at least £1.00.

Thereafter, delivery shall be deemed to have been successfully completed. No exceptions. If you need to return any Goods, then please see our Returns policy below.

4.16 The Company shall not under any circumstances be liable for any direct or indirect consequential loss arising from any delivery or delay of delivery for an Order of Goods or Services howsoever, whensoever, or wheresoever caused and whether or not resulting from a negligent act or omission by the Company.


5. Returns, Guarantees & Warranties

5.1 Other than the express provisions set out in these Terms, all other terms and the implied terms or warranties relating to the supply of goods or services are excluded to the fullest extent permitted by law.

5.2 In the event that you need to return Goods, then a Goods Returns Materials Authorisation Number (RMA) must be obtained from us for each and every return so that we are able to administratively process your return, otherwise we have no means of identifying the Goods being returned and this may result in difficulties in returning monies. You will be sent a RMA acknowledgement by email which may also include a downloadable returns label that should be printed off and secured onto the exterior of the package. The RMA must be clearly shown on each parcel returned and must be in the original manufacturer's packaging (which shall not be defaced) complete with accessories, manuals and documentation. Software packages must be returned unopened with the Software seals intact. Except in the case of faulty Goods, returned items not complying with these requirements will be rejected.

5.3 In the event that any Goods Delivered to you do not correspond with the Goods in the Order Confirmation, or have been Delivered to you by mistake, then you will be under a duty to take reasonable care of such Goods and to contact our Customer Services team immediately no later than 14 days. We will then arrange for a courier to collect the Goods and replacements to be supplied on a credit and recharge basis.

5.4 Care of Goods to be Returned - Whilst in possession of the Goods you will be under a duty to take reasonable care of them. We reserve the right to refuse a refund on Goods returned which have been made unfit for resale or damaged whilst in your possession.

5.5 Address for Returns of Goods - If you need to return Goods to us for whatever reason, then upon request, we will supply the address to you in writing. Return Goods will not be accepted at our London office.

5.6 The Company shall not under any circumstances be liable for any direct or indirect consequential loss arising from any defect of Goods or Services howsoever, whensoever, or wheresoever caused and whether or not resulting from a negligent act or omission by the Company.

5.6 Return of Defective Goods -
(a) In the event that Goods are found to be defective at any time within the first 30 days from delivery then please contact our Customer Services team immediately that you become aware of the defect, ensuring that you have the item’s serial number available to provide to our staff. Different manufacturers have differing policies for dealing with Goods, which are termed ‘dead on arrival’ meaning that the Goods are found to be faulty either on delivery or very shortly afterwards. You will therefore be advised by our Customer Services team of the relevant manufacturer’s returns policy. In the event that a manufacturer’s returns policy applies we will not charge you for the collection of the Defective Goods. It is your responsibility to package and secure the Goods prior to collection to prevent damage during their return to us.
(b) We shall at our option repair or replace such Defective Goods (or the defective part) and only if a repair or replacement is not possible or would be disproportionate to the price of such Goods, we shall at our discretion refund the price of such Defective Goods at the pro-rata contract rate provided that you return the Defective Goods to us with all internal and external parts that were delivered with the Goods.
(c) If we arrange for a courier collection of your Goods, this will normally take place between 9.00am and 5.30pm, and it is your responsibility to ensure that someone will be present at the collection address when the courier arrives.
(d) On receipt by us of the returned Defective Goods, if following the testing process the Defective Goods are found to be in good working order without defect, we will return the Goods to you, and the carriage costs of this return will be your responsibility. Please note that if you have, in the meantime, required us to provide you with replacement Goods before completion of the testing process, you will be liable to pay for these Goods. If, when we examine the Defective Goods, it is evident that the defect has arisen because you have failed to follow Solar Illuminations Ltd. or the manufacturer’s instructions as to the storage, installation, commissioning, use or maintenance of the Goods, or if you have altered the Goods without the written consent of Solar Illuminations Ltd. then we reserve the right to refuse a repair, replacement or refund.
(e) You should note that we adhere to individual manufacturers’ guidelines in respect of acceptable deviation of quality of certain items. Therefore, we reserve the right not to accept Goods considered by you to be defective if the error or fault is within the manufacturer’s accepted manufacturing tolerances. If you have any doubt, please contact our Customer Services.

5.7 Warranty Claims
(a) If Goods become faulty more than 30 days after delivery then you are advised to contact the manufacturer and use their warranty procedure. Unless otherwise stated in the manufacturer's documentation, all Goods carry a manufacturer's warranty.
(b) If you wish to make a warranty claim, you must comply with the manufacturer's instructions and warranty procedure. In order to resolve your problem as quickly as possible, we will refer you to the manufacturer who will deal directly with the return. In these instances, we will provide you with the contact information for the relevant manufacturer.
(c) All warranties provided under these Terms shall be invalidated if the Goods have been worked upon, altered or damaged in any way by you or your employees or agents, or if the Goods have not been used in accordance with the manufacturer's instructions.

5.8 Return for credit
(a) In the event that we, at our absolute discretion, agree to accept the return for credit of unwanted products, the Goods must be returned with our prior written agreement within 14 days of delivery. The Goods must be unopened, with the manufacturers’ seals intact and in perfect re-saleable condition. Used and/or installed products are not returnable. At our discretion, Goods returned in these circumstances will be refused or subject to a re-stocking fee. Please ensure that the Goods you have purchased are to your specification prior to breaking the manufacturers’ seals. This will avoid disappointment and the Goods being rejected, should you wish to return them.
(b) Any Goods returned unopened, with the manufacturers’ seal intact and in re-saleable condition, outside of the 14 days specified in clause 5.8(a) may be returned for credit subject to our absolute discretion and shall be decided by us on a case-by-case basis. All Goods returned in these circumstances will be subject to a reasonable re-stocking fee to cover our administrative charges.

5.9 Provision of Services
(a) If you purchase Services from us, then we shall use our skill and expertise to carry out the Services to a standard equivalent to that of a competent professional and shall warrant our work as free from defects for a period of 30 days after completion. In particular, we cannot be held responsible for any fault or damage not caused by our services engineers or their contracted agents. In the event of a claim arising relating to the level of skill and judgement applied in the course of providing Services, we reserve at our sole discretion the right to appoint an independent expert in the field to appraise the work carried out in the execution of the Service(s).
(b) We accept no liability for equipment installed or configured by us when the equipment has subsequently been altered or configured by persons other than ourselves or our agents. Except as set out here, all other express or implied terms or warranties relating to the Services are excluded to the fullest extent permitted by law.

7. Force Majeure

7.1 We shall not be liable to you or be deemed to be in breach of contract by reason of any delay in performing or any failure to perform any of our obligations in respect of the Goods or Services, if the delay or failure was due to any cause beyond our reasonable control. Without prejudice to the generality of the foregoing, the following (but not limited to) shall be regarded as causes beyond our reasonable control: act of God, explosion, flood, tempest, fire or accident; war, threat of war, sabotage, insurrection, civil disturbance or requisition; acts, restrictions, regulations, bye-laws, prohibitions or measures of any kind on the part of any governmental, parliamentary or local authority; import or export regulations or embargoes; strikes, lock-outs or other industrial actions or trade disputes (whether involving our employees or of a third party); difficulty in obtaining materials, labour or machinery; and power failure or breakdown in machinery.

7.2 If we are unable to provide you with your Goods within a reasonable time due to circumstances beyond our control, at our discretion, we shall either agree a new timescale with you for the delivery of the Goods or either of us may decide to terminate the Order in which case we will return any prepayments that you have made in full. The exception shall be where an order is defined as a special order or Goods that have been made to order.

Our liability in that event will be limited to the return of any money that you have paid in respect of the Order.

8.2 In the case of a manifest error in relation to price, you will be entitled to purchase the Goods or Services by paying the difference between the quoted price and the correct price, as confirmed in writing by us after the manifest error has been discovered. A 'manifest error', as the term is used in this clause 8, means, in relation to an incorrect price, a price quoted in error by us which is more than 10% less than the price that would have been quoted had the mistake not been made.
