Accepted orders for delivery outside the European Union may attract import duty and local sales taxes which customers will need to pay on receipt of the shipment. Any additional charges for customs clearance must be borne by you. These rules vary by country and your local government determines duty and customs charges, so you should contact your local customs office for further information before contacting Sue Tinkler Art Glass to discuss an order.
All Items are packaged with care to limit, so far as possible, the risk of external damage and prevent unnecessary internal contact between glass components.

Items found to be mis-described or faulty can be returned up to 30 days after purchase and qualify for a refund of the costs of return based on Royal Mail Standard Rates, or as otherwise agreed.

Please note that Sue Tinkler Art Glass can only accept returns that were bought directly from this website. Sue Tinkler Art Glass cannot accept returns of Sue Tinkler Art Glass products bought from third-party websites, outlets or shops.
Sue Tinkler Art Glass is not able to cancel orders or accept returns on any commission, made-to-order or customized items unless they are found to be faulty or Sue Tinkler Art Glass has not followed your specification. The bespoke nature of these items mean it would be unlikely to resell them owing to the unique design and appeal.
The Regulations allow you 14 days (starting after the day in which you entered the agreement) to cancel the contract (the “Cooling Off Period”), unless the course you have booked commences within that 14 day period or it is otherwise agreed that the services will commence within that 14 day period.
Booking a course that commences within the 14 day Cooling Off Period means that the Regulations will not apply and you will therefore be giving up your right to cancel. Money paid will therefore not be subject to a refund upon cancellation. In these circumstances, you consent to the commencement of our services (being the arrangement and booking of the course for you) within the Cooling Off Period, pursuant to Regulation 13(1)(a) of the Regulation.
To cancel your course, in the first instance, call Sue Tinkler Art Glass on 07762 928771 and follow-up your phone call with an email to the address listed in the Contact me section of this website.
