Terms and Conditions
Our terms and conditions are below. If you have any queries about the below, please contact us.
1. Sale Contract
a. When you place an order for any material, product, or event/service (in this agreement 'resources') by submitting an order on our website your contract with us will commence when we, BRF, confirm acceptance of your order by automatic email. We agree we will supply the resources listed on the said order.
b. These Terms and Conditions shall govern the Contract to the exclusion of any other terms and conditions.
c. Variations to these Terms and Conditions may from time to time be made available on the website.
In submitting an order you acknowledge that:
a. All information and specifications relating to the resources produced by any publisher represented on the website are approximate and BRF is not responsible for the accuracy of content provided. Covers may vary from those displayed on the website because of monitor and printer capabilities and last- minute changes made by publishers.
b. BRF may make any changes to the specification of the resources to conform to any statutory requirements.
c. NB We will take your latest online order or donation postal address and use that as your default address for all your contact with us for that account, online and offline, unless you tell us otherwise.
If you would like to use a delivery address that is not your main correspondence address, please enter this into the ‘Deliver to’ section at the order confirmation stage of checkout.
3. Product Description
We attempt to be as accurate as possible. However BRF does not warrant that the descriptions of resources or other content on this website are accurate, complete, reliable, current or error-free. Subject to the Right of Cancellation at clause 7 below, your sole remedy, should resources purchased by you be other than described on the website, is to return the resources in an unused state and BRF will refund the purchase price and your postage costs.
4. Pricing Policy
a. The price of the resources/event shall be the price as quoted on the website on the date the order was placed, subject to any inadvertent pricing errors (whether technical or otherwise) by BRF. If the advertised price on the site is caused by such an error BRF will either give you the opportunity to withdraw your order before accepting it or refund the total purchase price and your postage costs for returning the resources.
b. The following resources have shipping costs included within the price quoted: Subscriptions to Bible reading notes and Get Messy!.
c. The following resources are free of any shipping costs, thus do not count towards the calculation of shipping costs: Donations, Downloads, Gift Vouchers and some events.
d. Where delivery costs apply, the price of the resources does not include the cost of delivery. For such orders, you will pay the delivery charges as quoted on the website on the day of purchase.

5. Credit Cards
a. Credit and debit cards accepted by BRF are shown during the checkout process.
b. All payments by credit or debit cards will be taken prior to dispatch of the resources. Any fraudulent use of credit or debit cards will be notified to the authorities along with any identification details that were supplied with the order.
c. Any refund made to your credit or debit card shall be subject to the terms and conditions of the relevant issuing bank and therefore be subject to any time delay as specified by the issuing bank. We will not be liable for any delay that is outside our control. A correct cardholder name and address must be supplied at the time of ordering where it is different from your name and address.
d. For information about credit card security, see the Appendix below.
a. If you do not take delivery of the resources or give BRF adequate delivery instructions we shall not be liable for any loss, damage or deterioration to the resources delivered.

c. Risk of loss and title in the resources will pass to you on delivery to the address stated on your order.
d. Where resources are not yet available, the publishing date is stated on the website, and the option of Preorder is shown. Payment is taken for such resources when your order is placed, and resources will be delivered within 21 days of the publishing date (UK only – delivery times for outside the UK vary). Any not yet available resources can be cancelled from your order up to the date when they are available. Thereafter, see Right of Cancellation below.
e. Where resources are subscriptions, you will receive an email confirming your order, and the relevant issues will be supplied in time for the appropriate start dates, where applicable and possible. In the remote chance the relevant issues are not supplied by the start date due to technical error or shipping error, please contact us.
f. Where resources are events, you will receive confirmation of your booking within one week by email or by letter where no email is provided.
7. Right of Cancellation
Subject to clause 15 below, BRF warrants that the resources will correspond with the order at the time of delivery and will be free from defects on delivery. If BRF is in breach of this warranty you shall notify BRF within 14 working days from the date of discovery of the defect. On receiving a notice of failure of warranty, BRF may either replace all the faulty resources or refund the price of the resources that are defective.
9. Export Terms
BRF will be responsible for complying with any legislation or regulation governing the importation of resources into the country of destination.
