Terms & Conditions

This section together with our Privacy Policy tells you information about us and our terms and conditions.

These terms and conditions apply to Somerset Day CIC (a not-for-profit Community Interest Company) and its two websites, www.somersetday.com and www.shopsomerset.co.uk.

These Terms will apply to any contract between us for listing a business and/or events on our websites. Please read these terms carefully and make sure that you understand them, before agreeing to any listings on either of our websites.

 

Our Mission

Our mission at Shop Somerset is to connect businesses with consumers and communities.

As a not-for-profit Community Interest Company, it’s important that we foster these relationships for the benefit of our members, so that our members can partake in joining forces with likeminded businesses and organisations through a network built by Shop Somerset.

Shop Somerset aims to support small independent businesses through a membership programme which is tailored to small business needs and focuses on ensuring that members receive the support they ask for.

Listings & Membership

All new Listings for either www.somersetday.com or www.shopsomerset.co.uk will be checked before the Listing goes live on the Website. This is so we can check that links are working, and proof-read content for spelling & grammatical errors.

We only list events and businesses which are based in Somerset

You may be asked to verify the origin of any products that your business sells in order that we can state whether they are made in Somerset.

We aim to approve all Listings within 48 hours of receipt. If there are any problems with the Listing we will contact you on the email address that you provided.

It is your responsibility to update your Listing should any information change and you must inform us immediately by writing to info@somersetday.co.uk.

We reserve the right to reject any Listings that we do not deem appropriate for our sites. In this case any monies paid would be refunded in full.

If you wish to cancel your listing at any time you must notify us in writing at info@somersetday.co.uk.
