Gamersheek aim to supply merchandise and other items referring to science fiction, fantasy and popular culture, primarily, but not exclusively, for collectors, fans.
Orders on www.gamersheek.co.uk and from other media including, but not limited to, catalogue(s) all orders are taken as a “request to supply”.
Such requests include the obligation to pay for the goods.
Acceptable Use Policy
Gamersheek are committed to providing a safe working environment for its employees and staff. It is policy not to tolerate any incidents of harassment of staff or any individuals, including the posting of material on the website or social media, which Gamersheek may deem offensive, abusive, profane or hateful or which is threatening, or likely to cause annoyance, inconvenience or needless anxiety. By using this website you agree to comply with the spirit and letter of this policy.
Gamersheek will determine, at its discretion, whether there has been a breach of this policy, and in the event of a breach will take such action as deemed appropriate which may include:
immediate, temporary or permanent removal of any posting or material uploaded.
immediate, temporary or permanent withdrawal of any right to use the site
Issue of a warning
legal proceedings for reimbursement of all costs on an indemnity basis (including but not limited to reasonable administrative and legal costs) resulting from the breach
Further legal action as deemed necessary
Reporting the breach to controllers of other social media sites
Disclosure of such information to Law Enforcement authorities as Gamersheek reasonably feel is necessary
Gamersheek exclude liability for actions taken in response to breaches of this acceptable use policy. The responses described in the policy are not limited, and Gamersheek may take other action reasonably deemed appropriate.
Placing an order
Orders are placed on the system as request reservations with card payment processed by Sagepay, or, if selected, payment details processed by Paypal.
Order acknowledgements are emailed to Customers. The order acknowledgement is not a guarantee to supply, not a contract, and it is not an invoice. Customers should always check their acknowledgement to ensure that their requests have been entered correctly.
You must be 18 years or over to make web, email and/or catalogue purchases. We reserve the right to accept or reject any order for any reason at our absolute discretion.
No Sales Contract is formed until dispatch of goods.
Each contract so formed is specific to the items shipped. Other open “requests to supply” orders will generate separate, individual, and unconnected contracts on the date each is dispatched.
Pre-Orders and Back Orders
Gamersheek aim to carry extensive stocks, even so, many items offered through the websites and in print media are “Pre-Order”, or “add to wishlist”.
Pre-order products are those in design, the early stages of manufacture, printing or reprinting and transit. Where possible we shall indicate anticipated release, or arrival dates, (which are always subject to change). Manufacture and shipping is inherently flexible and subject to many a delay. There is no guarantee that any anticipated release, arrival, or re-supply date(s) will be adhered to, nor can we guarantee that we will be first to receive stock, others may be first, unfortunately that is the nature of the collectable marketplace.
Therefore it is mandatory for the Customer to accept that any particular 30, 60, 90 day or greater window of delivery dates is subject to slippage or change We shall endeavour to advise all Customers of revised availability dates, but the dissemination of information is, as always, governed by Supplier information. Additionally, such items may also have limited production runs or be restricted in other ways.
Note that all images used on the site are representational. Please do not assume that the image shown will be an exact likeness of the final product.
Wish List products are items which have been in stock, have sold out, and are on re-order from the Supplier or Publisher. Wish Lists are placed in good faith by Gamersheek and, in the main, are re-supplied to us within acceptable time frames. However, outside circumstances can intervene.
We shall always do our best to keep Customers appraised of any delay.
When products do arrive they are normally shipped in date ordered sequence in the same sequence as orders are placed on the system, barring product limitations or other restrictions such as customer qualifiers, variations, or product quality which may create shipping barriers. Customer demand criteria such as "ensure mint" "Triple package" etc are regarded as informal requests. They are not binding or mandatory.
As all orders are placed on the system as a “request to supply”, you can reserve your items safely in the knowledge that Gamersheek do not charge you for the full order, until we have goods ready to ship unless Pay In Advance is selected by the customer.
Card Security when ordering through the website
When ordering, your card details are secure. Gamersheek do not keep your card data. Gamersheek use the services of payment service provider (PSP) Sage Pay. (One of the largest such organisations in the UK). PSP’s are Payment Card Industry compliant security organisations that offer fully secure facilities for the holding of Customer confidential data. At final check out on the Gamersheek website, when you are requested to confirm your order request, you are seamlessly transferred to Sage Pay where card details are entered once.
Sage Pay will pre-authorise the card for one penny (to prove that it is genuine) then send Gamersheek a secure, randomly generated access code. After the pre-auth, Sage Pay return you to the Gamersheek website, where you can continue shopping or log out.
Card Payment Process
When goods arrive and are ready for shipment, Gamersheek use the Sage Pay access codes to apply for release of funds, and then, only for the goods about to be dispatched and postage if applicable
If your Card order is for several items shipped in different parcels over time , the contents of each parcel will be charged separately when ready to ship. The only deviation from this process is postage which is charged in full relevant to the whole order request as a single item with the first parcel only.
Should any initial request for funds be declined, the Customer will receive a notification email.
Paypal Payment Process
PayPal advertises itself as the safer, easier way to pay and get paid online. The service allows anyone to securely pay in any way they prefer, including through credit cards, bank accounts, buyer credit or account balances, without sharing financial information.
Customers should note that when paying by PayPal the money will be debited from your account by Paypal for the selected amount of your order, at the time of your order, irrespective of when the goods may be ready to ship. (See Pre-order section)
The PayPal service therefore, although extremely secure, is similar to, and handled as a cash transfer. In other words, Paypal is a cash with order payment.
We make every effort to obtain accurate product information including images, specifications and prices from our suppliers. We reserve the right to correct any errors in pricing, image, description or any other inaccuracy. We also reserve the right to refuse or cancel any order request based on any incorrect price, description or availability. Such corrections may be made even after an order has been acknowledged. If the price at which you have requested goods is incorrect you will have the right to cancel.
There is normally no minimum or maximum order. But such may be specified or qualified in a particular promotion or offering. Some restrictions, such as, but not limited to, distribution rights and availability may also override. For instance, certain items may have a restrictions imposed such as: "one per Customer/Address/ max 2 per household" and/or, specific or general geographic or regional areas, e.g. "UK only", or "Not available RoI".
Please note: Should any Customer or Customer Group place order requests that Gamersheek deems breaches restriction rules, Gamersheek reserves the right to discard and ignore those order requests. By the same token, product quality, qualifier or variation demands may disqualify customers from receiving items that are limited, short shipped, or do not attain their demand criteria.
“Exclusives” are also items that may have inherent restrictions. Geographical, Regional, Numeric, or otherwise. Some products are badged or stickered to indicate exclusivity, others are not.
For instance: Each year at the San Diego ComicCon (SDCC), artists, manufacturers and publishers, release what are known as SDCC exclusives. Sometimes SDCC items are stickered as “exclusive”, many times, they are not. The exclusive stickering appears to be an arbitrary exercise in randomisation.
Many of the SDCC exclusives each year, are made available, or reserved for Gamersheek, by the Artists, manufacturers & publishers. Gamersheek Customers who wish to order request such, and other exclusives do so in the knowledge that, due to their random nature, there is no guarantee or expectation that any particular exclusive supplied will be stickered.
Items of a higer value are subject to a 10% non refundable deposit. These products are clearly signposted on the web site, and all Customers are requested to confirm their acceptance. Customers through Sagepay will have a 15% value debited on acceptance. Paypal Customers, because Paypal is a cash with order type payment, will have paid in full for the high value item. In accepting the 15% non refundable fee, Paypal Customers, should they subsequently cancel their order agree to have 15% of their order value withheld from refund.
When making order requests on line, you are invited to create an account. Account holders can check past orders and hold items in their shopping basket for possible future purchase. NB: such items are not “reserved”, they are a “wish list” When converting a “wish list” into an Order Request, the price and stock availability of the items requested will defer to the Web Site pricing and stock availability at the date of order request. Credit Card customers. When items are shipped separately, cards are debited through Stripe only for the value of the goods shipped in each parcel.
All major Credit/Debit cards accepted via SagePay. Access, Visa, Mastercard, Amex etc.
