Goldmoney-Bullionvault.com Terms & Conditions
Terms & Conditions
1. Information about us
The Site is operated by WhichWayHome Limited ("we" / "us"). We are registered in England and Wales under company number 7104994 and with our registered office at 10 Virginia Court, Virginia Water, Surrey, GU25 4AF.
2. How the contract is formed between you and us
2.1 You may place an order to purchase a Product advertised for sale on the Site by following the onscreen prompts after clicking on the item you are interested in. You will have an opportunity to check and correct any input errors in your order up until the point at which you submit your order by clicking the "Make Payment" button on the "Payment Details" page.
2.2 After placing an order, you will receive an e-mail from us acknowledging that we have received your order and giving an order number and a summary of your order. Please note that this does not mean that your order has been accepted. Your order constitutes an offer to us to buy a Product. All orders are subject to acceptance by us, and we will confirm such acceptance to you by sending you an e-mail that confirms that the Product has been dispatched (the "Dispatch Confirmation"). The contract between us will only be formed when we send you the Dispatch Confirmation.
2.3 The contract will relate only to those Products whose dispatch we have confirmed in the Dispatch Confirmation. We will not be obliged to supply any other Products which may have been part of your order until the dispatch of such Products has been confirmed in a separate Dispatch Confirmation.
2.4 We may choose not to accept your order for any reason and we will not be liable to you or to anyone else in those circumstances.
2.5 We may be unable to process your order if:
(i) the Product you ordered is out of stock or discontinued; or
(ii) there is a problem with authorisation of the payment on your credit card.
3.1 We will deliver the Products to you in accordance with the delivery option specified by you when you placed your order (e.g. Standard Delivery or Next Day Delivery).
3.2 We will usually deliver all Products comprised in your order in one delivery. We will deliver directly to the delivery address specified in your order. Please see Delivery Information for details of where we deliver and the available delivery options. We cannot deliver items within the same order to multiple addresses. Deliveries will be made to your door. We are not responsible for any additional carrying or positioning of Products ordered. Deliveries must be signed for at the delivery address.
4. Risk and Ownership
4.1 Once delivered, the Products ordered will become your responsibility and, except in relation to Products that are damaged or faulty when delivered or have been incorrectly delivered, we will not accept any liability for their loss, damage or destruction after they have been delivered.
4.2 Ownership of the Products will only pass to you on: delivery of the Products to you; or us receiving full payment of all sums due in respect of the Products (including delivery charges), whichever is the later.
5. Price and Payment
5.1 The price of any Products will be as quoted on our Site from time to time, except in cases of obvious error.
5.2 These prices include VAT but exclude delivery costs, which will be added to the total amount due once you have selected a delivery service from the available options as set out in Delivery Information.
5.3 Prices are liable to change at any time, but changes will not affect orders in respect of which we have already sent you a Dispatch Confirmation.
5.4 We cannot complete your order until you have paid for it in full. Payment can be made by most major credit or debit cards, by completing the relevant details on the "Payment Details" page.
5.5 By using a credit/debit card to pay for your order, you confirm that the card being used is yours. All credit/debit card holders are subject to validation checks and authorisation by the card issuer. If the issuer of your card refuses to authorise payment we will not accept your order and we will not be liable for any delay or non-delivery and we are not obliged to inform you of the reason for the refusal. We are not responsible for your card issuer or bank charging you as a result of our processing of your credit/debit card payment in accordance with your order.
5.6 Our Site contains a large number of Products and it is always possible that, despite our best efforts, some of the Products listed on our Site may be incorrectly priced. We will rectify any such errors as soon as possible once we become aware of them. If a Product’s correct price is different from the price stated on our Site, we will normally, at our discretion, either contact you for instructions before dispatching the Product, or reject your order and notify you of such rejection.
6. Our Cancellation, Returns and Refund Policy
6.1 Except in relation to the Products specified in the next paragraph, you may cancel your order (or any part of it) at any stage before the Products are despatched to you. You may do so by contacting us using the “Contact Us” link in the footer of every page.
6.2 If any Product you purchase is damaged, faulty or incorrect, when delivered to you we may offer an exchange or refund as appropriate, in accordance with your legal rights. If you believe a Product is faulty, you should return the Product to us in accordance with the Returns Procedure. If you have any questions regarding returns, please use the “Contact “Us” link in the footer of each page.
6.3 After you cancel your order or return a damaged, faulty or incorrect Product, any sum debited by us to your credit/debit card will be refunded in full. We will notify you of your refund via e-mail within a reasonable period of time. We will usually refund any money received from you using the same method originally used by you to pay for your purchase. We will usually process the refund due to you as soon as possible and, in any case, within 30 days of receiving the cancellation request and, where applicable, the order back from you.
6.4 Under the U.K. Distance Selling Regulations 2000, consumers have a cooling-off period of seven working days in which to cancel the contract, starting from when the goods are received.
6.5 Our policy on cancellations, returns and refunds does not affect your statutory legal rights.

7.2 This does not include or limit in any way those liabilities that cannot, under English law, be excluded.

These Terms & Conditions were last updated in September 2011.
All material published here is intended to inform your thinking, not to lead it. Only you can decide the best place for your money, and any decision you make will put your money at risk. Any opinions expressed herein are statements of judgement and are subject to change without notice. Any action taken as a result of reading this site is solely the responsibility of the reader. Information or data included here may have already been overtaken by events – and must be verified elsewhere – should you choose to act on it.
Movements in financial assets such as shares and commodities can be very volatile and sudden. The past is not a reliable indicator of future performance. Financial assets are by their nature speculative investments. You should never invest more than you can safely afford to lose and appropriate independent advice should be obtained before making any such decision. Should you choose to a particular financial asset after using this site – and then doing further research before judging your own financial situation and opinions – you will be exposed to the risk of potential losses arising from a fall in the value of that asset during the time in which you own it. WhichWayHome Limited does not accept liability for any loss suffered by readers as a result of any such decision.
No information contained on this Site constitutes either an offer or a solicitation to buy or sell financial securities, commodites, or any other financial product. Physical gold bullion owned outright is not an investment "security". For that reason, advice regarding gold bullion is specifically excluded, for example, from financial regulation in the United Kingdom.
The information contained in the Site is for general information only and is not intended to be relied upon by individual readers in making (or not making) specific investment decisions. Individual investment objectives vary and the information contained in this site should not be construed as advice to meet the particular needs of the reader.
Although we hope this Site will be of interest to users (and except to the extent that our Terms & Conditions apply), we accept no liability for any losses, and no liability and offer no warranties or conditions in relation to this Site or its content, to the fullest extent such liability can be excluded by law.
By its nature the content of this Site challenges you to think about economic matters and their consequences. The result of your thinking could be action or inaction regarding your personal finances.

Accuracy of Information
We will use reasonable endeavours to ensure that information on the Site is accurate, but commentary and other material posted on the Site are not intended to amount to advice on which reliance should be placed. Except to the extent that our Terms & Conditions apply, we make no representation or warranty that any information is accurate, complete or up-to-date and, to the fullest extent permitted by law, we accept no liability for any loss or damage caused by any reliance placed on such information by you or anyone to whom you communicate such information.
