Terms & Conditions

Please read these Terms & Conditions of sale carefully prior to placing your order and retain a copy for future reference.

 

1. Format of the Contract

 

1.1 These terms of sale apply to all goods supplied by G J Beads based at: Unit L, St Erth Industrial Estate, Hayle. Cornwall, TR27 6LP (here after referred to as: the "Supplier", or "we", “us” or "our").

 

1.2 Any order placed by you for goods advertised on our website is an offer by you to purchase the goods selected in your order. No contract exists between you and us for the sale of any goods until we have received your order and accepted it (which we may do at our discretion).

 

1.3 We will send you an order acknowledgement shortly after you place your order, notifying you that we have received your order. This acknowledgement is not confirmation that we have accepted your order.

 

1.4 If we accept your order, we will notify you by email that we have accepted it prior to dispatch of the goods. If we cannot accept your order (for example, but without limitation, because the goods are found to be unavailable) we will notify you by telephone or email.

 

1.5 In the event that, after we accept your order, we discover that the goods ordered are unavailable or that there was a pricing error on our Website in respect of the goods ordered, we reserve the right not to supply the goods ordered and to offer you a refund or alternative goods in accordance with conditions 2.2 to 2.4 below.

 

1.6 The contract is subject to your right of cancellation (see condition 7 below).

 

1.7 We have the right to terminate the contract if the value of the goods is not received from you in cleared funds (in accordance with condition 3.1).

 

1.8 We may change these terms and conditions of sale without notice to you in relation to future sales.

 

2. Description and price of the goods

 

2.1 The description and price of the goods you order will be as shown on our website at the time you place your order.

 

2.2 If after acceptance of your order, we discover within 14 days of such acceptance that all of the goods are unavailable, we may terminate the contract and refund or re-credit you within 7 working days for any sum that has been paid by you or debited from your credit card for those goods. In these circumstances, we will inform you as soon as possible.

 

2.3 If within 7 days of our acceptance of your order we discover that some but not all of the goods are unavailable, we will no longer supply those unavailable goods. In these circumstances we will contact you detailing the goods that are unavailable and offer you the option of cancelling the whole order or amending your order to substitute the unavailable items with alternative goods. If you have not cancelled the order within 14 days of receipt of such notice, we will deliver the available goods in accordance with condition 4 below. We will refund or re-credit you for any sum that has been paid by you or debited from your credit card in respect of the unavailable goods or cancelled order (if you have cancelled it).

 

2.4 Every effort is made to ensure that prices shown on our website are accurate at the time you place your order. If within 14 days of accepting your order a pricing error is found in respect of any or all of the goods you have ordered, we will notify you as soon as possible detailing the mis-priced goods and offering you the option of:

 

2.4.1 Placing a new order at the correct price for those goods;

 

2.4.2 Cancelling the whole of your order; or

 

2.4.3 Cancelling your order for the mispriced goods and reconfirming your order for the correctly priced goods. If, within 14 days of receipt of our notice to you, you have not responded by selecting one of the available options at conditions 2.4.1 to 2.4.3 above then:(a) if all of the goods you have ordered are found to be mis-priced, the entire order will be cancelled automatically and we will refund or re-credit you for any sum you have paid for those goods; or (b) if only some of the goods you have ordered are found to be mis-priced, our contract with you continues and we will deliver the correctly priced goods but we will not be obliged to supply you with the mis-priced goods. In these circumstances we will refund or re-credit you for any sum you have paid for the mis-priced goods.

 

2.5 To avoid any doubt, where goods are unavailable and you order alternative goods from us, or where goods have been mispriced and you subsequently order such goods at the correct price, these terms of sale shall apply to the order and the supply of the relevant goods, whether the order is placed through our website or otherwise.

Pattern Copyright FAQs

 

Can I sell items that I make from your patterns?

 

Yes, you may make items from our patterns to sell, as long as the designer and GJ Beads is credited on all your work. Anyone who purchases one of our patterns or takes one of our workshops is granted limited, non-transferrable rights to produce and sell beadwork based off that design, with specific limitations: the purchaser may not mass-produce items for sale from our designs, and may not hire others to produce our designs for sale under their name or business name.

Mass production is considered an order of several dozen pieces. For example, a wholesale order of necklaces for a large department store would typically be considered mass production. A jewellery order for the bridesmaids of a single wedding would not. Likewise, a dozen pairs of earrings in the same style, but in a variety of different colours, all for sale in an Etsy shop would not be considered mass production. Three dozen pairs of the same style would be considered mass production. If you would like to discuss a specific production situation, please contact us.

 

Can I display items that I make from your patterns?

 

Yes, you are welcome to display/exhibit work made from our patterns, either online or in physical form, as long as you credit the designer and GJ Beads in all aspects.

 

Can I sell your patterns?

 

You can sell on the physical pattern that you purchased. You may not sell a copy of that pattern. You cannot purchase multiple copies of a pattern to re-sell for a profit.

 

Can I copy a pattern for my own use?

 

Yes, you can make a working copy of the pattern while you are creating your work, to make notes on, etc. The working copy must then destroyed after completion of the project, so that only the legal pattern remains in circulation.

 

Can I share a pattern with a friend?

 

You can lend the original pattern/artwork, as long as you do not keep a copy of it, even a working copy, at the same time. If the original number of products stay in circulation, then it is ok.

 

Can I copy a pattern to share with a friend?

 

No! All copies of a pattern are illegal and breach the copyright terms.

 

Can I make kits from your patterns to re-sell?

 

No, as this would count as re-selling our patterns for a profit.

 

Can I use your patterns to teach a workshop?

 

No, unless you have contacted us and purchased a tutor license. We offer a tutor license per pattern allowing you to print and distribute the pattern for your workshop.

 

Can I use your patterns in demonstrations of work?

 

Yes, as long as you credit the designer in all instances of your demonstrations.

 

Can I share your free patterns?

 

No. We offer free patterns as an incentive, but these come under the same copyright regulations as paid-for patterns. You can print one copy of downloaded patterns for your own use, but you cannot print more copies out to share with friends or beading groups, or teach at workshops.

 

Can I sell items that I make from your free patterns?

 

Yes, the same rules apply as paid-for patterns.

 

What do I get from purchasing a legal copy?

 

Besides the obvious fact that you don't have to worry about breaking the law if buying illegal copies, buying legal copies is good for both the creators and the customers;

 

  •          An income for designers and artists means they can create more products and sell them at cheaper price
  •          In the event of quality problems, errors or other questions about products you've purchased, you can come to the designer for help
  •          You are supporting the continuation and growth of GJ Beads for future enjoyment!

 

 

G J Beads reserve the right to supply purchased patterns in printed or digital format.
