The purchase contract is deemed concluded when the Buyer confirms his order within the order form which is available online. An order may also be confirmed by phone. If the Buyer does not mention explicitly in the field „Note for the Seller“ that he requires a printed proof of purchase and a package leaflet, he agrees that they will be supplied in an electronic form only. By placing an order with Lenses-contact.co.uk, the Buyer acknowledges that he has read these terms and conditions and that he accepted to comply with them.

If you wish to return a damaged or faulty product, we recommend you
place it in a stiff box and send it by registered post, this is to
