Terms and Conditions
By purchasing or ordering the Goods and/or Services, you agree to be bound by the terms and conditions set out below.
1. Overall Terms
1.1 These are the terms and conditions on which we supply e-cigarette and related products to you.
1.2 Please read these terms carefully before you submit your order to us. These terms tell you who we are, how we will provide products to you, how you and we may change or end the contract, what to do if there is a problem and other important information.
2. About Us
2.1 888 Vapour Limited is a company registered in England and Wales. Our company registration number is 09184542 and our registered office is at 3 Pioneer Way, Lincoln, Lincolnshire, LN6 3DH. Our registered VAT number is 217099892GB.
2.2 You can contact us by telephoning our customer service team at 01522 244880 or by writing to us at 3 Pioneer Way, Lincoln, Lincolnshire, LN6 3DH or emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
2.3 If we have to contact you we will do so by telephone or by writing to you at the email address you provided to us in your order.
2.4 "Writing" includes emails. When we use the words "writing" or "written" in these terms, this includes emails.
3. Our Contract With You
3.1 Our acceptance of your order will take place when we email you to accept it, at which point a contract will come into existence between you and us.
3.2 If we are unable to accept your order, we will inform you of this by email and will not charge you for the product. When an order is cancelled, you will receive an email notification regarding this. This might be because the product is out of stock or because we have identified an error in the price or description of the product, or because there is a safety issue or because you are not able to verify that you are at least 18 years of age via our age verification system with 1account.
3.3 We will assign an order number to your order and tell you what it is when we accept your order. It will help us if you can tell us the order number whenever you contact us about your order.#
3.4 We cannot sell some goods within the EU. Due to the Tobacco Products Directive (2014/40/EU) we cannot sell certain electronic cigarette products to consumers resident in countries of the EU. We are however able to sell all of our products to consumers resident in the UK and in non-EU countries. If we are unable to sell to you a certain product we'll notify you of that during the check-out process.
3.5 If you're a resident outside of the UK then it is your responsibility to ensure that the products that you order from us comply with the local laws that apply in your country and to take responsibility for importing the goods into your country. We will have no responsibility for products that are stopped at customs or which do not meet the legislation which applies in your country.
3.6 By law, we cannot sell e-cigarettes or related products to anyone who is under 18 years of age. All customers must verify their age at the time of purchase via our integration with 1account. This process only needs to be completed once, as you will be remembered by the system in the future. In the event that you cannot verify your age via the integration process, you may provide us with a copy of a valid form of ID (passport, driving licence or citizenship card) in order to verify your age manually. If you cannot provide a valid form of identification and cannot verify via 1account, your order will be cancelled and a full refund processed.
4. Our Products
4.1 The images of the products on our website are for illustrative purposes only. Although we have made every effort to display the colours accurately, we cannot guarantee that a device's display of the colours accurately reflects the colour of the products. Your product may vary slightly from those images.
4.2 The packaging of the product may vary from that shown in images on our website. You may not return the product because the packaging does not match the image shown on our website.
4.3 There are some safety risks associated with using e-cigarettes and we strongly recommend that you read the instructions for your product before you start using it. We cannot be held responsible for injury and/or death caused by the misuse of a product.
5. Your Right To Make Changes
If you wish to make a change to the product you have ordered please contact us. We will let you know if the change is possible. If it is possible we will let you know about any changes to the price of the product, the timing of supply or anything else which would be necessary as a result of your requested change. If we cannot make the change or the consequences of making the change are unacceptable to you, you may want to end the contract.
6. Our Rights to Make Changes
6.1 We may change the product:
- (a) to reflect changes in relevant laws and regulatory requirements, for example, where it is necessary to changing packaging or change the design of products to meet changes in the law; and

7.3 If our supply of the products is delayed by an event outside our control then we will contact you as soon as possible to let you know and we will take steps to minimise the effect of the delay.

7.5 If, after a failed delivery to you, you do not re-arrange delivery or collect the products from a delivery depot within 14 days the products will be returned to us. Once we receive the products back we will contact you for further instructions and may charge you for storage costs and any further delivery costs. If despite our reasonable efforts, we are unable to contact you or re-arrange delivery or collection we may end the contract and clause 10 will apply.
