4. Privacy and cookies
We use, store and process information about you in accordance with our Privacy and cookie statement. By using our website, you consent to our use, storage and processing of your information in accordance with that statement.
5. Website and social media content including user-generated content
5.1. If you have a complaint about any content on (or sent via) our website or social media pages please notify us immediately by emailing us at email@example.com with “Complaint about content” in the subject line setting out:-
5.1.1. Your name, company or organisation name if relevant, contact details (both a land address, telephone number and email);
5.1.2. Details of the exact content complained of and details of why you are complaining about that content; and
5.1.3. Confirmation from you that the information you have provided is accurate, complete and not misleading.
Please note that no action can be taken without this information.
5.2. In these Terms references to ‘material’ include amongst other things text, photos and videos. You must not post or transmit to our website or social media pages any material:-
5.2.1. That is knowingly false or misleading, defamatory, illegal, abusive, vulgar, hateful, harassing, liable to incite racial hatred, blasphemous, discriminatory, pornographic, sexually oriented, threatening or invasive of a person’s privacy;
5.2.2. Which you don’t own or for which you have not obtained all necessary licences and/or approvals;
5.2.3. Which is technically harmful (including, amongst other things, computer viruses, logic bombs, Trojan horses, worms, harmful components, corrupted data or other malicious software or harmful data); or
5.2.4. Impersonating any person or entity, or falsely stating or otherwise misrepresenting your affiliation with anyone or any entity.
5.3. If you post or transmit to our website or social media pages any material of the type prohibited under term 5.2 above (or which otherwise results in a claim or action against us) and we incur any costs, expenses, liability or losses as a result, then you agree to indemnify us for all such costs, expenses, liability and losses.
5.4. If you post or transmit any material to our website or social media pages (“contribution”):-
5.4.1. You grant Osprey a non-exclusive, perpetual, royalty free, worldwide licence to use, highlight, comment, modify or reproduce your contributions in whole or part, in whatever form, on Osprey’s and its licensees’ websites, social media pages and other communications and publications promoting Osprey products;
5.4.2. By submitting a contribution you waive your moral rights including the right to be identified as the author of the content;
5.4.3. You grant us the right to use the name that you submit in connection with that material; and
5.4.4. We shall be entitled to reveal your identity (or any information which we have about you) to any third party who claims that any of that material violates any of their rights or to any government or regulatory authority that is entitled or requires us to do so.
5.5 Before sending us any materials containing information relating to, or images of, other people, please make sure that those people have agreed to their information/names/images being used in this way to the extent that this is necessary. Use of images is a complicated issue but as a general guide, if your photo/video features a crowd of people, you are less likely to need to obtain the consent of each person in the picture/video than if your photo/video is of a small group of people or a single person. The easier it is to identify a person from your photo/video, the more likely it is that you will need to obtain their consent. Special care should be taken when providing information or taking photographs/videos of children.
5.5. We may remove or edit any material or posting you make on our website or social media pages at any time.

6.2. We may block your use of this service if you:-
6.2.1. Knowingly suggest a friend whose consent you don’t have;

6.2.3. Use the service with the intention to harass or cause a nuisance to a recipient; or
6.2.4. Send a personalised message within the email that contains inappropriate content or that is otherwise in breach of these Terms.

We can’t guarantee that these links will work all the time and we have no control over the availability of the linked pages.
11.2. If you wish to link from your website to any pages of our site you may do so only on the basis that you link to, but don’t replicate, the website page, and subject to the following conditions:-
11.2.1. The linking text must simply consist of http://www.ospreyeurope.com. You may only use the Osprey logo if we have licensed you to do so;

12. If any provisions of these Terms are determined to be illegal, invalid or otherwise unenforceable by reason of the laws of any country in which these Terms apply, then so far as these Terms apply within that country in which those provisions are illegal, invalid or unenforceable those provisions shall be severed and deleted from these Terms and the remaining provisions of these Terms shall survive, remain in full force and effect and continue to be binding and enforceable.
13. If you breach these Terms and we take no action, we will still be entitled to use our rights and remedies at a later date or in any other situation where you breach these Terms.
12. Events beyond our control
We won’t be liable to you for any delay in delivering any products or for breach of our obligations, if the delay or breach is due to acts of God, civil commotion, riots, malicious damage, adverse weather conditions, floods, drought, fire, epidemic, legislation, failure of ISP or telecommunications provider or any other cause beyond our reasonable control. This does not affect your statutory rights.
13. Law, courts and translations
These Terms, use of our site, the supply of products and services by us and all Osprey competitions and prize draws are governed by and to be interpreted in accordance with English law.
For your convenience we may from time to time display a translated version of these Terms on our website in languages other than English, and if so the translated versions are intended to be (so far as possible) an exact translation of the English version. In the event of any difference in meaning between the English version and a translated version, the English version will take precedence and apply.
Provisions which apply when you order products from our website
16.1. All orders for products are subject to availability and we reserve the right to refuse to supply to any individual or company.
16.2. Your submission of an order represents an offer to purchase the products indicated by you and is not binding on us until we have accepted your order. This means that if a product is shown on our site but is not available or is incorrectly priced or otherwise incorrectly described or if we are unable to arrange delivery to your address or wish to decline your order for any reason, we won’t be obliged to sell you that product in which case we will let you know and will not charge you for the product.
16.3. Shortly after we receive your order, we will acknowledge it by email, detailing the products you have ordered. This email is issued automatically and doesn’t mean that your order is accepted.
16.4. Acceptance of your order for a product and completion of the contract between you and us will take place when we dispatch the product to you. Any products on the same order which we have not dispatched to you don’t form part of that contract.
16.5. You are responsible for ensuring the accuracy of the details provided on the order form.
The price you pay is the price displayed on our site at the time we receive your order apart from where an error has occurred in displaying the price. Whilst we do our best to ensure that all prices on our site are accurate, errors may occur. If we discover an error in the price of products you have ordered we will inform you as soon as possible and give you the option of reconfirming your order at the correct price or cancelling it. If we‘re unable to contact you we will treat the order as cancelled. If you cancel and you have already paid for the products, you will receive a full refund. Prices displayed include VAT where applicable.
Sale items (% off) cannot be combined with any other discount, including coupon codes or Osprey Pro purchases.
16. Discount Codes
All discount codes are applied to the value of the order, excluding delivery costs and are subject to our general Terms and Conditions. The code must be entered and applied in the “Apply Discount Code” field during the checkout process for the discount to be deducted from the order.
Unless explicitly stated, discount codes cannot be combined with other discounts or promotions, including SecondLife and Outlet purchases. Discount codes may be limited to redemption in respect of certain products or certain products may be excluded from the offer. Discount codes cannot be exchanged for cash or used to purchase Gift Cards.
We reserve the right to modify or cancel discount codes at any time. If we refuse a discount code submitted as part of an order, for any reason, we will inform you before the order is dispatched to advise of the correct cost of the order and give you the opportunity to cancel the order.
Discounts on Outlet products cannot be combined with any other discount or offer, unless explicitly stated otherwise.
Osprey reserves the right to alter, amend or withdraw Outlet products and discounts without prior notice.
18. Product details
All sizes and dimensions of products as indicated on our site are approximate but we make every effort to make sure they are as accurate as possible. We have made every effort to display as accurately as possible the colours of the images that appear on our site. However, as the actual colours you see will depend on your device, we can’t guarantee that the display on your device of any colour will accurately reflect the colour of the product on delivery.
How can I pay for my order?
We accept Visa, Mastercard, Visa Debit, Solo, and Visa Electron cards. You can also choose to pay via PayPal or Klarna. We can’t accept payment by cheque.
In cooperation with Klarna Bank AB (publ), Sveavägen 46, 111 34 Stockholm, Sweden, we offer you the following payment options. Payment is to be made to Klarna:
- Pay later
- Pay in 3
Further information and Klarna’s user terms you can find here. General information on Klarna you can find here. Your personal data is handled in accordance with applicable data protection law and in accordance with the information in Klarna’s privacy statement.
Who is responsible for the transaction through the website?
We, Osprey Europe are responsible for the website transaction. When processing a transaction you’ll be referred to Braintree’s (our payment service provider) secure payment page, which is indicated by the https at the beginning of the URL (SSL).
When will I be charged for my order?
You will be charged as soon as your card or PayPal transaction is authorised and completes.
By placing an order you consent to payment being charged to your debit or credit card or PayPal account as provided on the order form.
If we can’t complete your order, we’ll refund all sums you have paid.
In case of query, please call +44 (0)1202 946444 (Monday to Friday, 8.30am to 5.00pm UK time, excluding bank holidays in England), quoting your order reference number.
I’m having problems with making a payment. What should I do?
If you are having problems making a payment using the site, please call +44 (0)1202 946444 (Monday to Friday, 8.30am to 5.00pm UK time, excluding bank holidays in England). Please note, whilst we are responsible for the transaction, this is an area over which we have very little control.
My payment has been declined. What do I do?
The first thing to check is that you entered all of your card details correctly, and that the billing address you entered matches the address that your card issuer/PayPal holds for your account. If the problem still persists, then we recommend that you contact your card issuer/PayPal. Please note, this is an area over which we have very little control.
What are ‘Verified by Visa’ and MasterCard SecureCode?
These are both schemes deployed by card issuers to combat online fraud. If you’ve signed up to either Verified by Visa or MasterCard SecureCode then a form will appear after you’ve entered your card details asking you to enter the password that you have registered.
If you haven’t signed up to either scheme, but your card is eligible, then your card issuer may show you a form suggesting that you sign up. You are able to register immediately or indicate that you wish to do so at a later date. To find out more about these schemes, please visit Verified by Visa or MasterCard SecureCode.
The payment screen has frozen. What’s happened?
In a small number of instances the payment screen may freeze due to an issue in connecting to your card issuer’s page to complete the additional ‘Verified by Visa’ or ‘MasterCard SecureCode’ security checks. This is almost certainly due to the preferences set within your browser. We suggest you try to process the transaction using another browser (for example use Firefox instead of Internet Explorer). If the problem still persists, please email email@example.com with your contact details and as much of the following as possible:
- Your operating system (e.g. Windows 8, Mac OS X)
- The browser you’re using (e.g. Internet Explorer 11, Firefox, Safari etc.)
- The page URL you were trying to access (e.g. https://www.ospreyeurope.com)
- The date and time that you experienced the problem
- If an error message appeared on the screen, it would really help if you take a screen shot (press the ‘Print Screen’ button (to the right of your ‘F’ keys, top right of your keyboard) then paste into the email you send us)
I’ve tried to place an order but haven’t had an order confirmation email, although money has left my account. What has happened?
First check your email spam folder. The confirmation email will have been sent from firstname.lastname@example.org. If you still can’t see your order confirmation email, please contact our Customer Services Team who will check to see if your order has been placed on our system. If you failed to reach the order confirmation screen it’s unlikely that your order was successful. However, if money has left your account, please be assured that it will be returned by your card issuer or PayPal. Osprey Europe will only keep a payment once an Order Number has been issued, and the items purchased have been dispatched.
I suspect that someone has fraudulently used my card to order from your site.
Please advise both us and your credit card company at the earliest opportunity.

*SecondLife products not included
Will you inform me when my order has been shipped?
Yes. When your order is processed and dispatched from our warehouse, you will receive an email informing you that your parcel has been shipped. You may also be able to track the delivery of your order via our carrier’s website (dependent upon the country we’re shipping to). You can also log in to ‘My Account’ to retrieve this information.
How long should I allow for my parcel to reach me?
Our standard delivery is between 1 to 3 business days, depending on the country to which the parcel is sent. Please note that adverse weather conditions and other circumstances beyond our control can seriously impact these delivery times.
We make every effort to deliver products within the above timescales, however delays are occasionally inevitable. If you don’t receive your goods within the time quoted above, please contact customer services on +44 (0)1202 946444. If we fail to deliver your order within 30 days we’ll notify you of the reason for the delay and you may cancel your order and we will provide you with a refund for the products not delivered. We will have no other liability to you in the event of delay in delivery.
I don’t live in the UK, can I still order from your website?
We ship to Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Norway, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland and the UK.
Can you ship more than one order at the same time?
Unfortunately, we don’t have the facilities for this. All orders placed on this website will be delivered to your chosen delivery address.
Can you ship different items from the same order to different addresses?
Unfortunately not. If you wish to send items to different addresses please place a separate order for each item.
Do I have to sign for my parcel?
Yes, a signature is required for all parcel deliveries from Osprey Europe. If it’s convenient for you, consider having your parcel sent to your work address.
What happens if I am out when the carrier tries to deliver my parcel?
The carrier will try one further delivery to the address specified. If there is no-one available to sign for the parcel on the second occasion, the parcel will be taken to your local Post Office for collection. For customers outside of the UK, if there is no one available to sign the carrier will take the parcel to your local Post Office or depot. You will be left a card to inform you where to collect your parcel.
Do you deliver to BFPO addresses?
At this time, we don’t offer deliveries to BFPO addresses.
My order is being delivered to an address outside of the UK. Will I be charged import duty?
If you live in a country that is a member of the EU, then no import duty will need to be paid. If you live outside of the EU, then you will be liable for any local sales tax or import duty as we ship these countries on a DDU basis (Delivery Duty Unpaid).
Policies on customs do vary from country to country, so we recommend that you speak with your local customs office for specific information.
Osprey Europe can’t be held responsible for confiscation of any items by local customs authorities, and have no control over import charges and can’t confirm their costs. You’ll need to provide any required information to local authorities to ensure your parcel(s) are cleared.
My order has been delivered, but there are items missing.
We’re sorry that you have item(s) missing from your order, but please note that due to the size of our packs, purchases may be dispatched as two separate deliveries. We recommend reviewing your Order Confirmation email first as this will indicate the expected delivery date for each item. The next step would be to track your order online via the carrier’s website, where applicable. If you have checked both of these and you still believe that there are item(s) missing, please call our Customer Services team on +44 (0) 1202 946444. Our opening hours are 8.30am to 5pm (UK time) Monday to Friday (excluding Bank Holidays in England).
Once I’ve placed my order, can I change the delivery address?
Unfortunately, we can’t change the delivery address once your order has been processed.
21. Returns and cancellations
Can I cancel or amend my order?
If you wish to cancel your order, please inform us in writing by emailing email@example.com, ensuring you quote your Order Number in all correspondence. Providing your order hasn’t yet been dispatched from our warehouse we’ll happily cancel it for you and process your refund. Once your order has been dispatched you’ll need to wait for it to arrive and then you can return for a refund – see below.
Unfortunately, we can’t amend your order once it’s been placed (e.g. change the colour or add another pack). If you change your mind, you’ll need to cancel your order and place another one.
What are my rights under the Consumer Protection Regulations?
Under the UK’s Consumer Protection Regulations, you have a number of ‘statutory’ or legal rights. One of these is the right to cancel your transaction and receive a full refund.
Your statutory cancellation right, otherwise known as a ‘cooling-off’ period, lasts for 14 working days starting the day after you receive your order. Note – we give you 30 days to return your order (or this may be longer during the Christmas period) – see below. You’re required to take reasonable care of the product and not use it whilst it’s in your possession. Until you are sure that you want to keep the products you have ordered, you must carefully handle the products only to the extent that you would handle them if you were looking at the products or carefully trying them on, in a shop in order to establish the nature, characteristics and functioning of the products, and you must not otherwise use them. Products must be returned to us in their original packaging, with all tags intact and in good, re-saleable condition and unused. This right to cancel does not apply to products which have been customised to your requirements, nor to enhanced delivery services (such as Timed next day delivery)
To exercise your statutory cancellation right please notify us in writing of your cancellation by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org quoting your Order Number.
For more information see below.
What is your policy on returns?
We want all of our customers to be 100% happy with their purchase. If for any reason you are not and wish to return a product to us, you can do so within 30 days of receiving it. All returned products must be returned unused, with all original packaging, labels & tags still attached.
To help you with your Christmas shopping we are offering an extended Christmas returns period. All orders placed from 1st November 2022 have until 31st January 2023 to return the order.
Note – the rest of our returns policy still applies. We will not issue a refund for products customised to your requirements, nor if the product has been used, damaged or tampered with. This does not affect your statutory rights.
If you experience a problem with the product once you have used it, please contact our Guarantee Department for assistance.
Do I have to pay for returning a product?
You are responsible for paying for returns, unless there has been an error on our part or because the product is faulty, then we will cover reasonable postage costs which you incur in returning the item on receipt of evidence of these costs.
When returning the item(s), please provide us with all original packaging, tags & labels.
- Complete this form to tell us why you’re returning your item. If the product is damaged or faulty, clearly mark what the issues are and where there is damage.
- Put the item(s) you wish to return in a box taking care to protect the contents.
- Cut out the return label in the return form and attach to the box.
- Wrap the original packaging around the box and securely seal it. If the original packaging has been lost or damaged, please use alternative packaging to securely wrap the box.
- Take the wrapped parcel to your nearest Post Office. We strongly advise that you ask for Proof of Postage or a recorded-delivery service for your peace of mind, as all parcels are returned at your risk. We can’t accept liability for items that are lost in transit.
Until the products are returned to us, you must not use them and must take reasonable care of them and ensure that they are returned to us in a re-saleable condition.
Please note the address to return items is:
Paul Ponsonby c/o Expeditors
Unit 3 Hurricane Park
If you cancel (and where already delivered, return) your order in accordance with the above provisions we will (subject as stated below) refund to you:-
- The purchase price for the item cancelled/returned
- The standard delivery charge for the item cancelled/returned. Note – where you ordered a number of items and only cancel/return some of them, delivery charges will not be refunded except for such part of the delivery charges that relate specifically to the items returned. Any extra charges for Express Delivery and gift wrapping will also not be refunded
When making a refund (other than a refund for a faulty product), we will deduct form the sum to be refunded any reduction in the value of the products returned caused by you using or handling the products beyond the manner in which you would handle the products if you were looking at them in a shop in order to establish the nature, characteristics and functioning of the products.
Any refund issued under these provisions will be made, using the same means of payment as you used for your order, within 14 days of:-
- Us receiving the products back; or
- (If earlier) you providing evidence that you have returned the products; or
- If you cancel before we dispatch the products, of you telling us that you want to cancel the order.
You will not incur any fees as a result of the refund but we will not make the refund until we have received the products back from you or you have supplied evidence of having sent the products, whichever is earliest.
If for any reason you suspect that your credit card has been used to make an inaccurate or incorrect transaction through this website, please advise us at the earliest opportunity by calling our Customer Service Team +44 (0)1202 946444. We will investigate and arrange a refund as necessary.

Yes, we will email you as soon as we have received your returned item(s). Please allow up to 10 days for us to receive your return from the day you posted it if you’re in the UK, or 21 days if you are returning items from outside the UK.
How quickly will my refund show on my account?
We aim to process all refunds within 5 working days of receipt of the returned product or if you cancel before we dispatch the products, of you telling us that you want to cancel your order, although during busy periods this may vary. If you paid by a card, please also allow up to an additional 5 working days for your bank to handle the credit and post it to your account. Osprey Europe has no control over this part of the refund process.
Note – we will not make the refund until we have received the products back or you have supplied evidence of having sent back the products, whichever is earliest.

No, please return the product to the store that you bought it from and they will handle the refund.

This is a complicated issue but as a general guide, if your photo features a crowd of people, you are less likely to need to obtain the consent of each person in the picture than if your photo is of a small group of people or a single person. The easier it is to identify a person from your photo, the more likely it is that you will need to obtain their consent. Special care should be taken when taking photographs of children.
