The Company may offer to collect the equipment from The User while charging a fee for collection. In this situation, it is The User’s responsibility to pack, box and submit the equipment using due care to The Company’s collection agent (either The Company or a 3rd party courier working on behalf of The Company) and to pay the relevant fees for the collection service.

Software Licence Fee
The Company charges a monthly license fee to The User for using The Company’s Software together with a Support Plan.
The Monthly Licence Fee is currently £30 (excluding VAT) per device. The fee is non-negotiable and non-refundable.
Failure to make a monthly payment will restrict the access to the platform and support until the payment is made.

The Company hardware and software can operate offline for a few weeks without being connected to the internet. Nevertheless, The User must provide an internet connection to perform monthly re-licensing, get access to software updates, and benefit from remote support & maintenance.
It is The User’s responsibility to ensure that they have an appropriate internet connection in place prior to installation and to also ensure that the internet connection is maintained correctly.

Internet speeds and consistencies can be checked by using internet speed test websites (e.g. speedtest.net) or contact your internet and/or broadband provider.

Renewal & Cancellation
After one year The User’s contract will automatically renew for another year unless The User advises The Company 30 days before the renewal date that they do not wish it to renew.
The User has a 14 day cooling-off period after the automatic renewal date in which to notify The Company that they do not wish to continue on Support, The Company will cancel the contract with no penalty to The User.

The Company may also choose to end the contract if:

Delivery of Purchase
Free delivery is offered on all orders over £100.00 (excluding VAT) to the UK only. For all UK orders below this amount, the fee payable will be notified during the checkout process.
Whilst The Company takes every care to ensure the packaging prevents any damage in transit, it is the User’s responsibility to check the products before they accept them at time of delivery.
On the rare occasion that a product is faulty or damaged on arrival we will provide a replacement product. The Company must be notified of any faults or damages on the day of receipt by the User.
Whilst The Company shall use reasonable commercial endeavours to deliver the goods by the date specified on The User’s order, it shall not be liable for the delay in delivery from any cause whatsoever and howsoever arising.
All deliveries must be signed for. Our third party supplier may notify you by email and text message when you should expect the delivery. It is the responsibility of The User to provide The Company with the correct address, email and mobile number to make the most of this service.
It is the responsibility of The User to have an appropriate person available to sign for the delivery. The Company are not responsible for any deliveries that cannot be made due to lack of access to the property.
We recommend that you keep the original packaging. In case the product needs to be returned for repair, original packaging will provide a better protection for the product during transportation. If an item is damaged in transit due to poor packaging by The User then we reserve the right to charge for this.
Any new hardware purchased directly from The Company is warranted against manufacturing defects for a period of one year (twelve months) from the date of delivery of the goods. This is the “Back-To-Base Warranty” period for this product.
The User may choose to renew the Back-To-Base Warranty period. Any renewal confers the same rights as the original Back-To-Base Warranty, merely extended year by year up to a maximum of three years from the date of original delivery of the goods.
Exclusions from This Warranty
Any “third-party hardware” is not covered by a warranty from The Company. Third-party hardware is any hardware not supplied by The Company, or any hardware which is not branded as “Its Lolly”.
The warranty does not apply to the software and User induced damages or circumstances, such as but not limited to:
- The product has been tampered with, repaired and/or modified by non-authorised personnel.
- The warranty seals have been broken or altered.
- Damage (accidental or other) to the product that is cosmetic, meaning damage that does not impact the operation and functioning of the product, such as but without limitation to rust, change in colour, texture or finish, wear and tear, gradual deterioration.
- Damage to the product caused by war, terrorism, fire, accident, natural disasters, intentional or accidental misuse, abuse, neglect or improper maintenance, use under abnormal conditions, accidental drops, spills, or power surges.
- Damage to the solution caused by improper installation, connection or malfunction of a peripheral device such as a printer, optical drive, network card, or USB devices.
- Damage to the product through neglect to protect the hardware from viruses.

- Fraud, theft unexplained disappearance or wilful acts.
- Liquid/fluid damage or contamination of any kind.
- Damage caused by user error such as malware, uninstallation, other programs, mistreatment or any software problems that are caused by use of anything other than The Company’s software.
Covering a Product Under Warranty
If The User believes the product may have a fault that is covered by the Back-To-Base Warranty they must report the issue to The Company within the warranty period and at The User’s own expense return the item to The Company.
Within 15 working days of receiving the goods, The Company will examine the device and if covered by the warranty will, and at The Company’s discretion, either:
- Replace the product with one of similar performance and capabilities.
- If a device fails outside of the first 30 days of original purchase, The Company retains the right to replace or repair the product with refurbished or remanufactured parts.
Out of Warranty products
If The Company determines The User’s product is outside of the Back-To-Base Warranty coverage The Company will, at The User’s request, prepare a quote for repair or replacement.
The User can choose to pay for the repair or replacement or have their original equipment returned (at their expense).
Where The Company replaces or repairs a product under warranty, or as a chargeable out of warranty service, the repaired or replacement product inherits the remaining days of warranty from the original product.
If the original product has less than 30 calendar days of warranty remaining, the replacement or repaired product will only receive a warranty coverage of 30 calendar days.
Dead on arrival
If a new product fails within the first 30 days of its original purchase, and is covered by a warranty, The Company will replace the product with a new, or a similar, product, at The Company’s expense.
Swap Out & Warranty Upgrade
If the product is covered by a Back-To-Base Warranty, The User may purchase a Swap Out & Warranty Upgrade for an additional fee. The User may then request The Company to replace a faulty product using a next working day courier service.
If The User notifies The Company prior to 1pm (UK time) on a working day (Monday-Friday, no public holidays) The Company will arrange for a courier to deliver a replacement product (of a similar specification to the original) to be delivered on the following working day.
When the courier delivers the replacement product they will collect the failed product. They will not leave the replacement product without taking away the failed product. They will allow a maximum of 15 minutes for the replacement to occur.
If The Company is notified of the need for a Swap Out after 1pm (or on a non-working day) the replacement will be delivered in two working days’ time.
It is not possible to arrange a specific time of day for the replacement.
Our Swap Out service is only available for addresses in the UK.
The Swap Out service is not available on products for which there is no warranty provided by The Company, for example third-party products not supplied by The Company.
If a product fails outside of the first 30 days of the original purchase, The Company retains the right to replace or repair the product with refurbished or remanufactured parts.
Swap Out service exceptions
The Swap Out service does not extend any warranty upon the hardware, instead it offers advance replacement of faulty equipment, rather than requiring The User to return the hardware before receiving a replacement.
The Company only offers the Swap Out service to products that are covered by the Back-To-Base warranty from The Company. Whilst The Company tries to validate the warranty status before agreeing to perform a Swap Out, there are occasions where it, at its own discretion, would agree to perform a Swap Out on products that are not covered by the warranty.
The User, wherever possible, must also provide the serial number of the item to be swapped when requested by the Support Agent. Failure to do so may result in a refusal of the Swap Out case.
When a product is returned to The Company via a Swap Out, The Company will inspect the product to ensure that it should be replaced under warranty. If it is found to be out of warranty The Company reserves the right to raise an invoice, due immediately, for The User to pay the replacement cost.
A product can be out of warranty for many reasons, including (but not limited to):
Warranty period has expired
Physical damage to the device not caused by reasonable wear and tear, such as impact damage, cracks, liquid or food damage.
Improper or insufficient cleaning and maintenance
If the item returned is found to be in working condition but in a poor and unreasonable state of cleanliness, The User will be billed for cleaning at a fixed rate per item.
Refunds and return of goods
No return or refund will be issued unless the Complaints Procedure outlined in these Terms and Conditions is followed.
Any returned goods should be packed in the original packaging. The Company reserves the right to charge for any damages caused in transit due to poor packaging.
Software sales are excluded from the standard returns policy due to the considerable costs in configuration, personalisation, training and dispatch. These items are strictly ‘non refundable’.
Where a product has been opened, The Company will only accept a return of equipment if the system is deemed ‘not fit for purpose’ upon receipt of the goods and this must be agreed by both parties.
The company cannot process a return on behalf of The User based on the following:
- User or staff training needs, not understanding or using the system properly.
- User not properly researching or qualifying the purchase.
- Functions that are not present or work differently than other products available in the market.
- Lack of compatibility with third party items/systems.
- Systems that have been dispatched, configured, personalised and used.
- User shutting down the business / product surplus to requirements after delivery.
- Orders that contain bespoke or custom equipment.
- Operational problems that arise from The User’s internet connection or other environment problems that are out of our control.
- User has accidentally damaged the item after delivery.
- User has misused the item and damaged it.
- User has tried to open or tamper with the unit in some way.
- User no longer requires the equipment or the equipment has been personalised.
- If the item is part of a custom or large order.
- If the item is not returned in its original packaging.
- If the goods are not in ‘as new’ condition.
Any damaged equipment will be charged at full cost.
The Company will use the following process prior to authorising the return request:
- Understand why The User feels the product is ‘unfit for purpose’ and attempt to reasonably resolve any issues remotely when highlighted by The User.
- Attend The User’s business premises if the situation cannot be resolved remotely to perform a site survey and onsite training or repair. This may be subject to an additional charge.
- Once the issue is identified The Company must be given reasonable time by The User to resolve the issue and relevant assistance.
If The User decides to return the item(s) inside of the 14 day cooling off period, The Company requires all equipment to be returned to them in the original packaging, with all boxes, leads, discs, adaptors and manuals.
The User is responsible for the delivery of the goods to The Company at The User’s own expense. Only after the goods has been checked by an engineer of The Company will any payment be agreed upon and released. The goods must be received in the original packaging as the goods were originally dispatched, otherwise a return cannot be processed.
Refunds may only be made after all endeavours have been made by The Company to resolve the issue.
In the event of a return, any relevant refunds, credit notes or exchanges can only be made to the card account or business/person that made the order originally. These will be processed within 28 days of return.
For any payments made through a finance company, The Company would only be able to refund any amounts due via their instruction in writing.
Any amounts paid for onsite installations, product imports, support payments, postage, module integrations and repair and labour cost are non-refundable.
The Company endeavours to ensure that All Users are satisfied with the purchase, however, where problems arise The User commits to following this Complaints Procedure.
