Velo Vision has always operated on friendly terms with all its customers. With the change of ownership though, it seemed appropriate to bring in some terms of business as a safeguard for everyone. These terms are written to protect the interests of the customer, as much as they are to protect Velo Vision and I will continue to operate a pragmatic light-touch approach to all relationships with customers. How else could it be? So, thanks for reading and I hope you find the terms more than reasonable.
If you are an advertiser, your terms and conditions are here.
Velo Vision Terms & Conditions, for subscribers, readers and end-users.
Your contract will be fulfilled by Howard Yeomans, trading as Velo Vision, operating from Freshfields, Main Street, Gayton-le-Marsh, Alford, Lincolnshire, LN13 0NS.
If placing your order on-line, you will either see a page or receive an email (if you have supplied your email address) containing a transaction reference acknowledging that your order has been received successfully. The transaction reference together with cleared payment will form a legally binding contract. Until payment is received, a contract shall not be formed. See “(7) Payment”, below.
If your order had been received ‘in person’, by fax or over the telephone, a legally binding contract will be formed on the date payment has been taken. Formal confirmation of your order with your subscription account number will follow, and be sent electronically (email) within 72 hours or if on paper, within 14 days. We will not be responsible if you fail to receive the written confirmation because you have supplied us with an incorrect postal address or email address.
We reserve the right not to accept or process your order for any reason. All orders are subject to validation checks and authorisation by your payment card issuer. If we do not accept your order and your credit/debit card has already been debited, we will notify you and refund your card in full immediately.
A subscription comprises a specific number of issues. If the magazine publishing frequency changes, we will honour the number of issues paid for, not a specific period of time. Similarly, a subscription may ‘expire’ i.e. become due earlier than a previously indicated date if the frequency increases. When a subscription expires, we will contact you to ask if you wish to renew your subscription. New terms, prices and delivery schedule may apply at this point.
We reserve the right not to fulfil and to cancel (or change orders):
- In the event of obvious inaccuracies in prices, except that we may fulfil your order at the correct price;
- If we are unable to obtain payment authorisation from the issuer of your payment card;
- If the products are out of stock.
We will deliver goods to the address you notify to us when you place your orders. Subscriptions will start with the next available issue, unless you indicate otherwise, please allow up to six weeks for delivery of all items ordered. Goods may be delivered in separate packages, and when we do so a delivery note will indicate this to you.
You agree that we will not be responsible for failure to deliver goods if you have supplied us with an incorrect address. We reserve the right to dispose of incorrectly addressed envelopes and their contents without an obligation to refund you or any other person if they are returned to us and despite efforts to contact you we do not receive correct address details.
We will not be liable to you for any delay in delivery or non-delivery of goods in the following circumstances:
- Where the issuer of your payment card refuses to authorise payment to us;
- Where such delay or failure is due to circumstances beyond our control or the control of our sub–contractors and agents, including but not restricted to war, electricity power failure, utilities failure, failure of telecommunications links, failure of transport infrastructure, fire, flood, government act, act of God, legislative constraints, strikes, labour disputes or malicious damage involving employees.
Our liability to you in the event of goods being lost in despatch shall at our discretion, be limited either to replacement of the missing issues or refund of the cost of the missing issues, to the extent permitted by law we exclude all other liability to you. Our exclusions of liability shall not apply to any damages arising from death or personal injury caused by our negligence or that of any of our employees or agents. These Terms and Conditions do not and shall not affect your statutory rights as a consumer under UK law.

The terms of Exact Editions are available on their website: www.exacteditions.com. Where a wholly digital subscription is provided by Exact Editions, you arrangement is entirely between you and Exact Editions.
(5) All additional non-subscription products
Other products available from Velo Vision including paper back-issues, PDF files, photographs and other media are subject to the same payment conditions. When other goods are bought simultaneously with a subscription, payment and delivery of all goods may be combined and a delivery note and payment receipt will indicate each item purchased.
(6) Cancellations and refunds
For all subscriptions, digital or otherwise, you may cancel your contract at any time by notifying our customer services team in writing (email or paper), or by telephone. See contact details below. We will refund you the cost of the issues not yet issued to you at the time you notify us of your wish to cancel.

Prices displayed on the shop section of the website will prevail at all times in relation to orders placed on-line.

In some exceptions, there are prevailing ‘standing orders’ setup and payments received from these customers are covered by the same terms 1-6 as above and 8-9 below.
We reserve the right to increase our prices at any time, but this does not affect your existing pre-paid subscription, as detailed at the time of payment.
