Any order placed by a customer is only an offer to purchase which Shelf Pharmacy may in its absolute discretion accept or decline without having to provide a reason. Notwithstanding that payment has been made by the customer online and may have been processed, Shelf Pharmacy reserve the absolute right to refuse to supply the products and in such cases are not obligated to provide a reason for declining the order. In such cases a refund will be provided to the customer within a reasonable period of time by the same method as payment received. All private & NHS prescriptions are delivered by first class recorded delivery. Shelf Pharmacy cannot accept any responsibility for prescriptions or orders which are delayed or lost due to Royal Mail including the use of the freepost address.

7. Your security

Shelf Pharmacy takes online security very seriously and you can use our website with confidence. We use a secure server which encrypts your credit card information during transmission. Your card details are transferred over a secure virtual private network (VPN) to an authorisation server which is not directly connected to the Internet. Your card details are then entirely deleted from our systems after the transaction has completed.

8. Deliveries

Although Shelf Pharmacy aims to offer you the best service possible, Shelf Pharmacy makes no promise that the services and products will meet with your requirements. Postage and packing is currently charged at £4.20 per transaction under £30.00. Any orders over £30.00 including VAT and all private and NHS prescription medicines are delivered free of charge. Please note heavy items may be subject to extra delivery charges. In this event, we will contact you and advise you accordingly. Deliveries are normally despatched by Royal Mail 1st class or recorded delivery and we will inform you by e-mail of the date and method of despatch. Please note that all prescription medicines are despatched by recorded delivery and will require a signature. It is the customer's responsibility to ensure that an authorised person is available to accept such a delivery. The customer shall inspect the items immediately upon receipt and must notify Shelf Pharmacy within seven calendar days of any discrepancy or any damaged goods.

Shelf Pharmacy reserves the right to refuse sales at our discretion if we believe there is a fraudulent credit card use. You may be asked to provide further proof of your identity and/or proof of credit card. Failure to do so will result in termination of the transaction.

You will be notified by email if Shelf Pharmacy cancels your order or if your credit card has been declined.

For security reasons Shelf Pharmacy will log your IP address. Details of all fraudulent transactions will be passed on to the relevant authorities.

9. Returns policy

If, within seven calendar days, you no longer require all or part of your order, providing that the product remains unopened and in its original packaging, the item may be returned at the customer's cost for a full refund. Due to the nature of our business this does not apply to any medicines which may not be returned.
