    Terms and conditions

    Introduction

    The website gmit.stationerysuperstore.ie (the “Website”) is owned and operated by Stationery Superstore, the registered business name of Office Store Limited with a registered address of C/O Premier Stationery, Stereame Centre, Limerick Rd, Nenagh, Co. Tipperary (“Stationery Superstore” “we” or “us”). Stationery Superstore operates the Website together with GMIT Students Union Shop (the “Partner”).

    These terms and conditions (the “Terms”) set out the legal terms and conditions on which Stationery Superstore sells products (“Products”) to you via the Website. Please read these Terms carefully and ensure you fully understand the Terms prior to submitting an order to purchase Products through the Website (an “Order”). By submitting an Order for Products through the Website you thereby agree to these Terms.

    These Terms apply to any contract between Stationery Superstore and you, the customer, to the exclusion of any other terms you may seek to incorporate or which are implied by trade, custom, practice or course of dealing.

    Each Order constitutes an offer by you as a customer to purchase the relevant Products via the Website in accordance with these Terms. If you do not agree to these Terms, you must not use the Website.

    Please note that Stationery Superstore reserves the right to amend these Terms from time to time.

    Goods and Pricing

    We endeavour to ensure that every Product on the Website is shown accurately; however; occasionally, there may be small variations in colour, typefaces, and layout. The images shown are illustrative only and sizes, weights, capacities, dimensions and measurements are approximate only. In addition, the packaging of the Products may vary.

    The prices displayed on the Website are subject to change, and we reserve the right to change these at any time.

    In rare cases, the price quoted for a Product may be displayed incorrectly. We will aim to rectify any such error as quickly as possible and will notify you of the actual price of the Product. If the price shown is lower than the actual price, you will have an option to proceed at the actual higher price or to cancel your order and be refunded for the amount paid. If the price shown is higher than the actual price, we will refund the difference to you. Stationery Superstore and/or the Partner are under no obligation to provide the relevant Product to you at the incorrect price, even after an order confirmation email has been sent if the pricing error is obvious and unmistakable and could reasonably be recognised by you as a pricing error.

    Prices shown on the Website are in Euro and are inclusive of Value Added Tax (VAT) at the prevailing rate. The price of the product does not include the delivery charge. You are advised of delivery charges at checkout, for more information on delivery, please see the delivery information page on the Website.

    Stationery Superstore or their Partners do not cover, and will not be responsible for, the payment of any additional customs or import charges, duties or taxes incurred when the parcel reaches the destination country. Please enquire with your government's import office if you are concerned that your order may incur import taxes when it ships from Ireland. You must comply with all applicable laws and regulations of the country for which the products are destined. We will not be liable or responsible for any breach of such laws by you caused by your ordering and receiving any products. You shall be responsible for ensuring the ordering, receipt and use of such products comply with all applicable laws.

    Delivery of Products

    The Products sold by us via the Website are shipped directly from our facilities in Ireland.

    The price for delivery of each Order is shown separately to the cost of the Products comprising each Order at the checkout stage before you place your Order on the Website.

    Delivery charges and times can be reviewed on our order and delivery information page.

    An estimated delivery time will be given when you place an Order. Occasionally the delivery of an Order to you may be affected by an event outside our control. Please see the below section of these Terms entitled “Events Outside Our Control” as well as the Stationery Superstore order and delivery information page for further information. Dates and times given for delivery are estimates only, and we or the Partner shall not be liable for any delay in delivery of an Order.

    Stationery Superstore Partner stores are not liable for any failure to deliver an Order due to an Event Outside Our Control (as set out under the paragraph entitled “Events Outside Our Control”) or due to the Customer’s failure to provide Stationery Superstore with adequate delivery instructions or any other instructions that are relevant to the delivery of the Order. The customer is responsible for checking and ensuring the order is correct before placing the order.

    Changing or Cancelling an Order

    Stationery Superstore and the Partner are not responsible for customer generated mistakes, errors or defects including spelling, typographical or grammatical errors; poor image quality derived from low-resolution images, order quantity, or other ordering errors, including delivery address. To prevent these errors from happening, please review your order carefully before proceeding to payment.

    In cases of disruption to your delivery due to COVID-19, Stationery Superstore or the Partner will contact you regarding any issue that may arise as a result. We are more than happy to work with you on this matter to ensure delivery as quickly as possible.
