These terms and conditions also contain provisions that govern your use of our website, whether or not you purchase any products from us.
Please read these conditions carefully before accessing our website and/or purchasing products from us. By accessing our website and/or ordering our products, you signify your agreement to be bound by these terms and conditions.
Our shopping pages will guide you through the steps you need to take to place an order with us. Our order process allows you to check and amend any errors before submitting your order to us. Please take the time to read and check your order at each page of the order process. Please ensure that the information you provide during the order process is complete, true and accurate.
When you place an order to purchase a product from us, you will be sent an automated e-mail by Ruroc.com confirming receipt of your order and setting out the details of your order. This does not constitute an acceptance of your order.
Your order represents an offer to purchase a product from us which is accepted by us when we send an e-mail confirmation stating that we've dispatched that product to you (the "Dispatch Confirmation E-mail"). That acceptance will be complete at the time we send the Dispatch Confirmation E-mail. Any products on the same order which have not been confirmed in a Dispatch Confirmation E-mail as having been dispatched do not form part of that contract.
Items sold by us on the Ruroc website are dispatched from Gloucester, UK and can be dispatched to various locations around the world. All the times that we quote are UK local time.
Delivery Times are based on standard working days - Monday to Friday, no Saturday deliveries, excluding public holidays.
Orders for next day delivery need to be completed by 12pm.
Next working day delivery only applies to Mainland UK.
Orders made on Friday will be posted on the Monday.
All parcels must be signed for and acknowledged on delivery. If no one is available to accept delivery, we will attempt another delivery and hold your parcel for up for 7 days. If we are unable to deliver after 7 days, we will consider the delivery as failed and your parcel will be returned to Ruroc. On receipt of a failed delivery, Ruroc shall refund the order value less the delivery charge.
On delivery, please check the products carefully for any possible defects. If you believe that any of our products may be defective or of unsatisfactory quality, please notify [email protected] as soon as possible, where possible, or within a reasonable time. We ask that you take reasonable care of the products while your claim is being investigated. Please do not return any products which you believe may be defective before contacting [email protected] If you are returning a product from outside the UK, you are responsible for return postage costs and retaining proof of postage. If the products are confirmed defective or mis-described, we will reimburse you for reasonable return postage costs. If all products confirmed defective constitute the entire order or if all products were faulty or damaged, the original delivery charge will be reimbursed.
It is the buyer's responsibility to notify us if their order has not been received within 21 days of the estimated delivery date or receipt of our invoice. If no notification is made within this time period the buyer shall be deemed to have received the goods.
All claims against damage, loss or late delivery of your order must be taken up with the postage service provider. Ruroc will always look to help and may be able to offer advice on how to deal with your claim.
At Ruroc.com we want you to be delighted every time you shop with us. Occasionally though, we know you may want to return items due to sizing issues and faulty goods. That's why under our 14-day returns guarantee, if for any reason you are unhappy with your purchase, contact us within 7 days of purchase (at [email protected]) and you can return it to us in its original condition within 14 days of the date you received the item.
Our returns guarantee does not apply to custom made helmets or other products supplied to your own specification, nor to any helmets or products made to order.
By law, customers in the European Union also have the right to withdraw from the purchase of an item (apart from any item that is custom made or made to order)_within fourteen days of the day after the date the item is delivered.
To cancel your purchase within the fourteen-day cooling-off period, please contact us at [email protected] to inform us that you wish to cancel your order. Please package the relevant item securely and send it to us using your personalised return label within 14 days following the date that the item was delivered to you.
Please note that we cannot accept returns if you deliver them to us by hand.
For your protection, we recommend that you use a recorded-delivery service if the value of the return is more than 50 GBP.
Please note that you will be responsible for the costs of returning the items to us unless we delivered the item to you in error, or if the item is damaged or defective. If we do not receive the item back from you with the delivery slip, we may arrange for collection of the item from your residence at your cost.
You should be aware that once we begin the delivery process you will not be able to cancel any contract you have with us for additional services carried out by us (eg: gift wrapping).
As soon as we receive notice of your cancellation of this order, we will refund the relevant part of the purchase price for that item together with the item's standard postage charge.
We cannot usually reclaim the cost of any priority, express or courier services once they have been booked by us and we are therefore unable to refund the cost of these services once booking has taken place.
Customers outside the EU if you are not completely satisfied with the goods you have purchased and you notify us in writing within a 14 day period from receipt of goods we will happily refund the price of the product - after the product is returned to us. Unfortunately, we cannot refund any shipping costs incurred.
All goods advertised on the site are subject to availability. If an item that you wish to order is unavailable, we shall inform you by telephone or e-mail.
We shall not charge you for goods that we cannot supply for any reason, although, we may take pre-orders on items not currently held in stock but will always indicate this during the checkout process. However we will not be responsible for any losses or damage that may occur if we fail to supply goods.
We have made every effort to display all the goods on the website as accurately and fairly as possible.
We will meet our responsibilities under this contract within a reasonable time unless it is impossible to do so because of circumstances beyond our reasonable control; in particular we will not be responsible for delays caused by our suppliers.
If we are unable to dispatch a product due to unavailability or for any other reason we reserve the right to cancel your order and refund any payment taken without obligation to fulfil your order.

We take reasonable care to ensure that the information and prices on our site are correct at the time when the relevant information was entered onto the system. Our site contains a large number of products. It is always possible that, despite our reasonable efforts some of the products on our site may be incorrectly priced. If we discover an error in the price of the products you have ordered we will contact you to inform you of this error and we will give you the option of continuing to purchase the product at the correct price or cancelling your order. We will not process your order until we have your instructions. If we are unable to contact you using the contact details you provided during the order process, we will treat the order as cancelled and notify you in writing. Please note that if the pricing error is obvious and unmistakeable and could have reasonably been recognised by you as a mispricing, we do not have to provide the products to you at the incorrect (lower) price.
All ownership, title and risk of loss and/or damage in the product you have purchased shall pass to you at the point and time at which such product leaves our UK warehouse.
If, despite having followed our Helmet Sizing Guidelines, you find that your purchased product does not fit properly, you have the following options:

If your delivery address is outside the UK, the addressee will be the importer of record and must comply with all laws and regulations of the country into which the products are delivered. The product may be subject to import duties and taxes, which are levied once the package reaches the country of delivery. Any such additional charges levied for customs clearance must be borne by you. Please note that we have no control over these charges and cannot predict what they may be at any time in the future. Please contact your local customs office for further information before placing your order.
When you transact with us or send e-mails to us, you are communicating with us electronically. We communicate with you directly by e-mail, text or by posting notices on the Ruroc.com website. We may periodically send promotional e-mails/texts about new products, special offers or other information which we think you may find interesting using the email address and/or phone number you have provided.

We only supply our products for private use. You agree not to use the product for any commercial, business or resale purposes, and we have no liability to you for any loss of profit, loss of business, business interruption, or loss of business opportunity.
If we fail to comply with these terms and conditions, we are responsible for loss or damage you suffer that is a foreseeable result of our breach of these terms or our negligence, but we are not responsible for any loss or damage that is not foreseeable.

We do not in any way exclude or limit our liability for:
(a) death or personal injury caused by our negligence;
(b) fraud or fraudulent misrepresentation;

Crash Replacement is only available at time of original purchase of an ATLAS, Shockwave, RG-1, RG1-X or RG1-DX and is non refundable.
Ruroc will always endeavour to provide your choice of replacement component but we reserve the right to substitute an alternative component should your preference not be available at the time of redemption at our absolute discretion.
