Terms & Conditions
By using our website to order products or services or to contact us for any reason, you are agreeing to these Terms and Conditions and our Privacy Statement which can be read here.
Pod Salt and our subsidiaries and affiliates ("we" or "us" or "our") provide the information contained on our website to visitors ("visitors" or "you" or "your") subject to the Terms and Conditions set out on this page as well as those contained in our Privacy Statement and any other relevant terms and conditions, policies and notices which may be applicable to a specific section of the website.
2 Product Specific Terms & Conditions
2.1 Age Restriction
You must be eighteen (18) years of age to purchase our products. Pod Salt will not sell products to minors and we reserve the right to cancel any transaction based on our sole discretion where we believe the purchaser intends to purchase products on behalf of a minor.
2.2 Product Use
The electronic cigarette does not cure a smoker's addiction to nicotine, it merely serves the same purpose as a tobacco cigarette - it delivers nicotine to the user. If you suffer from the disease of Tobacco/Nicotine Dependence Syndrome we recommend you visit your health care provider to discuss NRT (Nicotine Replacement Therapy) or a nicotine harm reduction programme. We are not a pharmaceutical company and we do not manufacture or sell medicinal products. We recommend that you seek independent advice or information from your own medical health practitioner prior to your use of any of our products. It should be noted that nicotine, in high doses, can be harmful. In concentrations above 2.5% (25mg/ml) nicotine is classed as a poison. Therefore, on some products we are required to publish warnings and safety information, which you can read on the respective product pages. You agree that these products are to be used at your own risk. Under no circumstances will Pod Salt be held responsible or liable, directly or indirectly for any loss or damage that is caused or alleged to have been caused in connection with use of, or reliance on any product we supply. All our flavourings, whether contained in pre-mixed e-liquid, or sold separately as flavour concentrates are certified as safe for general food use under European and/or USA food safety regulations. There is currently no regulation for production of flavourings for inhalation. That said, lipid containing oils, colourings, diacetyl, acetoin and acetyl propionyl have all been shown to be harmful through inhalation. None of our concentrates or pre-made liquids contain these components. Even so, Pod Salt cannot be held responsible for any claim or damage arising from the use of food flavourings in electronic cigarettes, e-cigs, personal vaporisers or any other form of inhalation device. As with smoking cigarettes, the use of personal vaporisers and the use of food-safe flavourings is undertaken by the user wholly at their own risk. Goods are NOT supplied on a trial basis or on a 'use or return' basis.
2.3 Product Pricing and ordering
The total price of the goods ordered will be the price shown at the time of the order. The full purchase price as well as the cost of packaging and shipment will be clearly displayed on the checkout page before you commit to the order. Placing items in your cart does not "reserve" them or guarantee that you will be able to order them. Your order is not complete and, in the system, until you have fully completed payment. Therefore, if you have limited stock or fast selling items in your cart, they could sell out if someone else is purchasing the same item at the same time and completes checkout before you. If you forget to order something and place another order later on, please do not ask us to combine your order or refund shipping costs. Multiple orders may automatically be combined by our batch processing system or they may not, depending on where the two orders are in the batch, and it's not something we can alter or accommodate.
2.4 Sales Taxes (VAT)
All our products are duty paid in the United Kingdom and the purchase price includes VAT (sales tax) at the current rate (20%) where appropriate. Any additional duties or taxes payable by customers outside the UK are the sole responsibility of the customer.
Free Delivery for orders over £30* only. Shipping costs are based on the weight of the items in your cart and will be calculated when you check out. Standard UK orders are sent First Class via Royal Mail's Recorded Signed For™ service and overseas orders are sent via Royal Mail's International Signed For™ Airmail Service. We aim to process, and ship orders the same working day if payment is made before 2pm GMT; otherwise, the next working day. We are not responsible for packages delayed or confiscated by your internal customs authorities and we are unable to answer any shipping queries by telephone. If you wish to contact us about non-delivery, we ask that you please wait until the usual delivery time period has elapsed, as we won't be able to assist until this time period has passed. If you are located in the UK and the value of your cart exceeds £50, you should elect to upgrade to the Royal Mail Special Delivery™ Next Day which provides a much more reliable service as well as insurance up to £500. By selecting this option, you are not purchasing a warranty that your package will arrive the day after you place your order, you are upgrading the shipping method to the Royal Mail UK Special Delivery™ Next Day Service which will be delivered by 1pm the working day after despatch. Further information about this and other services can be found on our Delivery Information Page. You will receive email confirmation once your order has been dispatched and the Royal Mail reference will be located near the bottom of this email, underneath your order details. Please ensure you check your spam filtered emails before contacting us to ask for the tracking reference.
