We use industry standard security to safeguard the confidentiality and storage of your personally identifiable information in accordance with current UK Data Protection legislation and guidelines. However, please be aware that “perfect security” does not exist on the internet. Further, it remains each user’s responsibility to safeguard against unauthorised access to their user details, to ensure that only the user logs on to the Website, to ensure that the user logs off from the Website when not using it, and to keep his/her log-in details safe. We cannot be held liable for any loss that you may suffer if a third party obtains unauthorized access to any data, including credit and account details you provide when accessing or ordering from this Website, unless this is solely due to our negligence.
Your personal information will be exclusively used for individual customer care. We confirm that any personal information that you provide to us (or which is available on public registers) and any user information from which we can identify you, is held in accordance with the registration we have with the Data Commissioner's Office. We use your information only for the following purposes:
You will only receive promotional information from us if you opt in by ticking the appropriate box as you go through the registration process.

We will then make sure your personal information is deleted from our mailing list and databases in accordance with our administrative policies (for example, we may be required to retain your address details in relation to any credit card purchase for a period of not less than 6 months).
If you would like to check the details we hold about you please do not hesitate to contact us. We will be happy to review and update, amend or delete your records as necessary. We can provide you with a readable copy of the personal information which we keep about you within 30 working days, although we will require proof of your identity and any such request for personal information must be received by us in writing. We are entitled to levy a reasonable charge (such charge not to exceed £10) in order to provide this information to you.
If we wish to use your personal data for new purposes, we will offer you the means to consent to these new purposes by either indicating your consent at the point on the Website where the data is collected or by communicating with us by email.
We never pass, disclose or sell our customers’ personal details to any marketing lists.

You place your order request for goods from the Website by clicking on the confirm order button at the end of the online order process. You will be guided through the process of placing an order by a series of simple instructions on the Website.
Once you have placed your order, we will send you an e-mail acknowledgement providing you with a reference number and the total value of your order that will be debited from your credit/debit card. This is not an order confirmation or order acceptance from LUMA.
Orders are accepted at LUMA’s sole discretion but are normally accepted if the goods requested are available, the order reflects current pricing, the delivery address is within our delivery area, and the credit or debit card provided is authorized for the transaction.
Unless we have notified you that we do not accept your order or you have cancelled your order in accordance with the Cancellation Procedure, our acceptance of your order and the completion of the contract between you and us will take place when we have dispatched the goods ordered by you. To cancel your order after it has been dispatched to you, you will need to follow the Returns Procedure.
You will be sent a VAT invoice together with the Goods ordered. If you are sending a gift, the invoice will be sent separately to the card holder’s address.
If you need any information about your order(s) please contact LUMA on the following number (open 9.30am to 5.00pm, Monday to Friday), 0845 094 2598, or e-mail email@example.com.
If we are unable to fulfill your order following our order acknowledgement, we will contact you by email or telephone advising you of this. See Cancellation and Returns procedure set out in Section 9 below.
We will take all reasonable care to ensure that all details, descriptions and prices of products appearing on the Website are correct at the time when the relevant information was entered onto the system.
Any typographical, clerical or other error or omission on any page of this Website, or in any sales literature, quotation, price list, acceptance of offer, invoice or other document or information issued by us shall be subject to correction without any liability on our part.
The price of the goods shall be the price set out on the relevant page of this Website. This price is inclusive of any applicable value added tax but exclusive of delivery and packaging charges as set out on the order form.
We reserve the right to change the prices set out on this Website at any time. If the price of the goods changes between the date you place your order and the date the order is dispatched, we will let you know and ask you to confirm by e-mail that the new price is acceptable. You will, of course, have the option of canceling the order.
By providing us with details of the payment card and submitting the order you:
All credit/debit cardholders are subject to validation checks and authorisation by the card issuer. If the issuer of your payment card refuses to, or subsequently refuses to, or does not, for any reason, authorise payment to us, we will not be liable for any delay or non-delivery.
Payment may be made by personal cheque by downloading an Order Form from the Website and completing and mailing it as explained on the form. Please note that goods will not be dispatched until payment by personal cheque has cleared.
The deduction of monies from your payment card, or banking of your personal cheque, does not mean that we have accepted your order nor does it mean that a contract has been formed between us. In the event that we reject your order, we will credit your payment card with the amount previously deducted, or send you a cheque to the value of the personal cheque received.
Delivery of the Goods shall be made to the address for delivery you provide on the order form. It is important that this address is accurate and that we have a contact telephone number. Certain parcels may require a signature on delivery. Please be precise about where you would like the Goods left if you are out when we deliver. We cannot accept any liability for loss or damage to the Goods once they have been delivered in accordance with your delivery instructions.
Any delivery timescales quoted to you are indicative only. Orders may be delivered in one or more delivery. Time for delivery shall not be of the essence of the contract.
LUMA does not accept any liability whatsoever for delayed delivery caused by any third party.
As soon as you have received the goods, you must inspect the goods. You will be deemed to have accepted the goods unless you notify us that you have cancelled the order and/or you return the goods in accordance with the Returns Procedure. If no such action is taken, we shall not be obliged to accept any rejection of the goods at a later date.
You will assume all risk in the goods on delivery
or, if you wrongfully fail to take delivery of
the Goods, on tender of delivery of the Goods by
us or our carrier. Upon delivery of the goods to
you, we will also provide you with sufficient details
to enable you to:
a) exercise your right of cancellation; and
b) address any intended cancellation or complaints to the correct place of business.
If any item arrives damaged or defective, please contact us and we will make arrangements for a replacement to be delivered to you.
If you have not received the entire order as detailed in the order acknowledgement email sent to you when an order is received, and you have not been notified of any out of stock items, please contact us on the following number (open 9.30am to 5.00pm, Monday to Friday) 0845 094 2598 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
