A signature is required on delivery of the Goods and if not provided the Goods may be returned to the local Royal Mail dispatch centre from which they will need to be collected by you in person. The Goods will be held there for a set period (usually 10 days) whereupon they will be returned to us and a further delivery charge will be deducted from your payment method for the Goods to be resent to you.

Governing Law and Jurisdiction
This Agreement will be governed by and construed in accordance with English Law and the English Courts.
The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (or WEEE) Regulations are now U.K. law. All European member States including the U.K. have agreed to reduce the amount of WEEE that is being disposed of in landfill sites.
It is important that the amount of WEEE sent to landfill sites is reduced because:
Some WEEE can be re-used or recycled. The amount of landfill space available in the UK is decreasing. If we can keep WEEE out of landfill sites it means there is more landfill space available for non-recyclable waste.
WEEE can contain hazardous substances. When left in landfill sites the hazardous substances in WEEE can pollute soil and contaminate water supplies. This contamination can damage human health and the environment.
Distributors of new Electric and Electronic Equipment (or EEE) have a part to play in reducing the amount of WEEE going into landfill sites.
Gamesbite Ltd are "doing our bit" under these regulations by offering our customers free take-back of their WEEE on a like-for-like basis when they buy a new Electrical or Electronic product.
For example, if a customer bought a new games console from us we would accept their old games console and prevent it going into a landfill site by disposing of it safely. Customers must return their WEEE item to us within 28 days of purchasing their new item. Customers do not have to pay for the transportation of their WEEE to our premises.
If you wish to return your WEEE item, please contact us on the following telephone number: 01482213433 or by email on firstname.lastname@example.org
Under the WEEE Regulations, all new electrical Goods should now be marked with the crossed-out wheeled bin symbol shown below:
Goods are marked with this symbol to show that they were produced after 13th August 2005, and should be disposed of separately from normal household waste.
Note: These Terms and Conditions should be read in conjunction with the information contained within the other areas of the site.
