Terms and conditions can be daunting to read. We have prepared a simplified version here to help you understand what the terms and conditions mean in plain(er) English.

  1. This the contractual agreement between us.
  2. In order to buy from us (or create an account), you are bound by the terms and conditions.
  3. We Are Were Limited and Candle of Her Brain
    1. This is who we are.
    2. This is how we refer to ourselves.
    3. This is how we refer to you.
  4. Using This Website
    1. What this website is all about.
    2. You have to be a real person (no robots allowed, sorry!).
    3. We do our best to make sure everything on the website is correct and up to date but can’t always guarantee it.
    4. We can change things without giving you notice.
  5. Placing An Order and Registering An Account
    1. You can buy from us.
    2. You must pay for your order before we ship the items to you.
    3. This is a big clause but essentially gives us power to cancel or reject an order in case we are out of stock, if we suspect fraud, or something else is wrong.
    4. We typically offer all major debit and credit cards plus PayPal as a payment option but others may be available in certain countries.
      1. You are only allowed to use your own card, PayPal account, and so on. Very important!
      2. Handling sensitive payments data requires a lot of security that we’re frankly not equipped to do. Therefore, we outsource all of that to someone who’s licensed to handle it (such as Braintree and PayPal).
        1. This clause is just here in case we reach a custom deal where you pay us by bank transfer. In such cases, we do as a normal part of how bank transfers work receive your bank account number in our bank account.
      3. If your bank charges you additional fees for shopping online, shopping in a foreign currency, or shopping at a foreign website, we are not responsible for such fees.
    5. If an item is out of stock or otherwise unavailable, we will contact you and work something out. If you prefer, we’ll refund the payment. Otherwise, we can offer you a replacement item. And we reserve the right to waive or refund the difference (depending on whether the replacement item costs more or less).
    6. VAT is complicated. Basically, we are required to show prices inclusive of VAT. If you live outside of the VAT countries, we’ll remove VAT once you get to the checkout. More info here.
    7. In the unlikely event you end up having to pay some sort of sales or import tax/duty for orders from us, you have to bear those costs on your own.
    8. If you want, you can create an account.
      1. To place an order, you need to give us personal information.
      2. You must select a password. Make it a good password and keep it confidential. We are not responsible for any damages as a result of you not keeping your password safe enough, so be careful! Maybe look into password managers to help you manage all your passwords?
      3. The personal data you give us must be accurate. This is mostly to make sure we can actually deliver the goods to you.
        1. Here we point out that the shipping address is especially important. Make sure it’s all spelled correctly.
        2. This is how you update your personal details.
      4. Like most ecommerce websites, we perform automatic (and manual) controls of orders to protect ourselves from fraud and also to protect you from account takeover. This often requires using third parties to for example compare your IP address with the shipping address. We have an internal policy to only work with reputable third parties.
      5. Please read our Privacy Policy, since it’s a part of the terms and conditions.
  6. Shipping and Returns
    1. Information about shipping is available here.
    2. Information about returns is available here.
  7. Special Offers, Promotions, and Coupons
    1. We may offer discounts and other fun stuff sometimes. Yay! Not all offers are available for everyone (for example so that we can offer special promotions based on what you have bought before and we think you might like).
    2. Sadly, some people may try to abuse our promotions. We reserve the right to exclude such people from our special offers.
  8. Liability — This whole clause is very large and full of legalese. In essence, what we do here is clearly state that we are not liable for any damages as a result of misuse of our items. If you prick yourself with a pin, that’s on you.
  9. Copyright and Intellectual Property
    1. We have the copyright to all intellectual property we put out.
      1. … But we are happy to work out a licensing deal if you are interested in reselling our stuff!
    2. We of course don’t own logos and other property that belongs to other people and companies, such as payment logos.
    3. If you leave a comment or review on our website, that comment belongs to you.
      1. We reserve the right to edit comments and reviews. While we won’t change the spirit of the message, we might fix spelling errors, formatting, or cut the text down if it’s very long.
  10. Miscellaneous
    1. This agreement is executed under Maltese law (BTW, Malta is an EU member).
    2. And any disputes should be settled accordingly.
    3. If something in these terms and conditions is found to be unlawful, everything else will remain (the whole agreement doesn’t come crumbling down just because one piece breaks).
    4. All communication shall be in English.
    5. We might update the terms and conditions and are not required to let you know each time we do.
    6. Headings are not a part of the terms and conditions (they’re just there to make it easier to read).
    7. This whole simplified version of the terms and conditions isn’t legally binding. It’s just here to give you a helping hand, and the full version above takes precedent.
    8. Ultimately, these terms and conditions don’t change your legal rights as a consumer.
