You should print out and retain a copy of those terms at the time at which you send us your order.
Descriptive and clerical errors are subject to correction. Orders must be placed by the issue of a valid purchase order or other written communication.

We will treat your order as an offer to buy and except for retail or mail order sales we will send you an email to confirm receipt of your offer. This e-mail this does not mean that your offer has been accepted. Certain products and offers may only be available to qualifying customers, for example in particular geographical areas.
All prices quoted on our site exclude carriage costs which will be added to your order during the checkout process. VAT, where applicable, has been added to the price of the products at the appropriate rate unless explicitly requested, method of carriage will be at our discretion. Any costs omitted or corrections on your invoice will be invoiced / credited later. All advertised/advised/published pricing is subject to change at any time without notice due to market/currency fluctuations and other factors. Please be advised that whilst prices are shown in local currency all monies are taken in English pounds. In certain instances there may be variations with the amount that you’ve paid and the amount on your card. This is down to exchange rate fluctuations your bank charges you and not something we can control. To avoid any variations we can also except payment by wire transfer in US Dollars or €uros.

If goods are resold without our written permission such sale will invalidate any non statutory returns policy that may be in force. Please contact head office to find out more about becoming a Loc8tor reseller.
In most cases, unless agreed otherwise, we dispatch using our preferred carrier. Standard UK Delivery is normally made within 5 working days but no absolute guarantee can be given of this or any other delivery times. Where a premium service is requested (e.g. next day, AM delivery or Saturday) our liability extends only to a refund of the premium should the delivery not be attempted on time. Same-day dispatch is subject to the order being received earlier than that working day’s ‘cut off’ time but this may vary with workload or around holiday periods which you will be notified at the time of order. “Working day” is considered to be Monday to Friday, excluding holidays or any other day on which our offices are closed. Deliveries may be made any time between 9am and 6pm. Our standard delivery service covers most parts of mainland UK. It is essential that someone will be at the delivery address to receive and sign for the goods. You must inspect goods supplied as soon as practicable after delivery and notify us within a reasonable period of time of delivery any alleged defect or failure to comply with the description of the goods. The goods are at your risk from the time of delivery and no liability will be accepted by us for damage or loss to the products after the time that the delivery document stating that the goods were received has been signed. Failing such notice you will be deemed to have accepted the products and it shall be conclusively presumed that the products are in accordance with the contract and free from any defect or damage, which would be apparent on examination.
All ‘standard’ deliveries are untracked and will be delivered by your local post office. Please note we are unable to speed up or escalate delays with your parcel. Orders may be delivered out of the provided timescale.
All ‘priority’ deliveries are fully tracked and will be delivered by a courier (DPD for UK, DHL for rest of world). We will ensure your order is delivered within the provided timescale.
Please ensure you select the correct delivery method.
When ordering products for delivery outside of the UK you may be subject to import duties and taxes, which are levied once the package reaches the specified destination. Any additional charges for customs clearance must be borne by you; we have no control over these charges. Customs policies vary widely from country to country, so you should contact your local customs office for further information. Additionally, please note that when ordering from us, you are considered the importer of record and must comply with all laws and regulations of the country in which you are receiving the products. Your privacy is important to us and we would like our international customers to be aware that cross-border deliveries are subject to opening and inspection by customs authorities.
Our carriage rates may increase at any given time depending on the courier rates. While we endeavour not to reflect these prices to our customers, sometimes this may be unavoidable. Updated delivery information can be found on our Delivery Information page.
Goods obviously damaged in transit must be notified to us within 48 hours of receipt. You are advised to keep all packaging as that may be required in the event of a claim. We will require photographic evidence to escalate it with the courier.
If you have received your order but an item is missing, you have 48 hours from the date of receipt to notify us. After this time we will assume that you have received your package and all is in order. We advise checking the product description.
You must contact us within 7 days from the advised delivery date, if you have not received your order. Our customer service team will raise an investigation with our carrier. We will endeavour to respond to you within 7 working days with our finding (It could take 14-30 days for a claim to be investigated with the courier). Should your package arrive within the investigation period, please let us know by phone or email. Please note that we cannot be held responsible for items lost in the post due to an incorrect delivery address being provided.
After 30 days of the advised delivery date, we will assume that you have received your order. We are unable to escalate any orders mentioned as ‘not received’ after this time.
This policy does not affect your statutory rights.
All returns must contain a returns form. If you do not have a printer and are unable to print out our returns form, please ensure all details are included on your covering letter. Please click the Returns Form
We do suggest sending everything back so that we can test for any faults, however we do understand that sometimes this isn’t always possible, however if you’re returning a Homing Tag please ensure that it has been unregistered from the handset before sending it back, otherwise we’ll be unable to test it. If you’re unable to do so, we will require the Handset back.

Tags must also have their clear adhesive seal applied and product must be free from cat hair, in other words – products must be returned exactly how it was delivered/received, in order to receive a full refund.

We reserve the right to charge the price of the replacement item to the payment card used for the original order if you do not return the original item within this time period.

We will check all items returned as damaged or defective. In the event we find no fault, we reserve the right to re-charge you for the item/s and to recover our fees and expenses from you. Refunds for goods purchased under a promotional offer will be based on the terms of the promotional price. In the event of a refund requested which includes a FREE promotional gift with order we reserve the right to charge for the free gift at it’s advertised value if not returned.

Please check to ensure collar is not too loose or tight to avoid rubbing. When adjusting the collar, you must leave enough space to be able to slide two fingers between the collar and your cat’s neck to avoid injury, or two-three fingers for long hair cats.
