The following terms and conditions apply to all orders for the purchase of goods from www.rspbshop.co.uk.
You may only place an order for goods if you agree to these terms and conditions. By placing an order you are deemed to have accepted these terms and conditions as governing your order. This does not affect your statutory rights as a consumer.

Trading registered company/charity numbers
All profits made from the sales of goods on the RSPB online shop are paid to the RSPB (registered charity number in England and Wales 207076, in Scotland SC037654) by its wholly owned subsidiary RSPB Sales Ltd (registered company no.

The supply of goods from this site is subject to availability, and it is not always possible for us to inform you at the time you place your order whether the goods you want are available for purchase. If the item that you have ordered is unavailable, we may from time to time offer a substitute that is of equal or greater value and quality of the original item. If you are not entirely happy, you may return the substitute product.
As we are continually improving the design of our products, some product specifications may vary slightly from descriptions on this website.
When you submit your order you are allowing RSPB Sales Ltd to use your personal details to fulfil your order. In the event that there is a problem with your order, we will communicate with you via e-mail, telephone or letter.
The RSPB offers a no-quibble return policy.
Should you be less than delighted with any item you buy from us for any reason, let us know within 90 days of delivery, and we will be pleased to offer you a replacement or a full refund.
Damaged or faulty goods
The goods that we supply are guaranteed to be durable and reliable. In the event that any product purchased from our website proves to be unsatisfactory in use due to defective workmanship or faulty material, you can return them to us for a replacement or a full refund. Your statutory rights are not affected.
Order cancellations, amendments and returns
So long as you let us know within 90 days of delivery, you may return the whole order or an individual product in its original packaging and condition for a full refund.
Where a refund is claimed, we will process the refund as quickly as possible, but please allow up to 21 days for the credit to reach your account.

Special offers and discounts
Offers and discounts do not apply to RSPB Membership, good natured (virtual) gifts, binoculars, telescopes or products already reduced in price (eg sale items) unless specified. Only one offer is available per purchase. (In the online shop, offers requiring a code to be quoted in the shopping basket are limited to one offer per order.)
Staff and volunteer discounts are not available in conjunction with other offers.
Product specific offers are only available while stocks last.
Where a minimum spend amount is required to qualify for an offer, this is calculated on the basket total (after any other discounts have been applied and excluding postage costs and donations).
Good natured gifts (virtual gifts) and RSPB gift membership do not count towards the minimum spend amount, as they are donations, and we cannot legally give products in return for donations.
