Terms & Conditions
The scary bits! (not really)When you place an order with us, you agree to our Terms & Conditions below. Of course, they do not affect your statutory rights.
Specifications, compatibility, and item specifics
The depth and breadth of photographic equipment can be confusing at the best of times – and although we are professionals, it is not possible for us to have absolute and specific knowledge of every manufacturer and system out there. By placing an order with us, you confirm that you have undertaken the necessary research to ensure the item(s) you purchase are suitable for your requirements. This does not affect our 14 day return policy – however, we cannot be liable for any inconvenience or damages resulting in improper use of products.
Of course, this does not mean that you can’t ask us for advice! We welcome any questions, no matter how big or small.
We reserve the right to cancel or otherwise request a change to any order placed with us. With such a large volume of items in our catalogue, errors such as pricing mistakes can happen, and we are not obligated to fulfil erroneous orders, or absorb erroneous shipping costs. Such errors (pricing, or otherwise) are determined entirely at our discretion and discussions as to what constitutes an error will not be entered into. In the event of this happening, every effort will be made to find a satisfactory resolution, either in the form of a similar alternative item, refund, or any other solution which can be agreed upon. Naturally, you will be informed of any cancellations or refunds immediately, and changes will not be made to orders without prior discussion. Dispatch of your items constitutes our acceptance of your order.
For example, we are not obliged to sell a Leica M3 with 50mm f/1.4 Summilux for £3.25!
Returns PolicyOur returns policy is outlined on our – Returns page
We are a small team, and as such we can't always post items out immediately - but we endeavour to dispatch stock within 48 hours of receiving cleared payment (not including weekends or bank holidays) - if you need an item for the next day, or have any particular delivery requirements, we are happy to try and accommodate this if you discuss it with us prior to ordering. Once the item has been dispatched, we cannot be held responsible for any service delays from the courier that is used. We always post items with delivery confirmation and full insurance up the order value. Requests for shipping without tracking or insurance will be politely declined.
Postage and Delivery
International OrdersWe ship internationally but we are not liable for any import taxes, duties or customs charges incurred by the buyer. These are the sole responsibility of the buyer and in the unfortunate event of an international order being returned to us, we cannot refund customs charges, or import duties/taxes. We will declare the full amount on the customs invoice. Please do not ask us to break the law and declare your extremely valuable Hasselblad to be a broken decorative camera worth 50p.
LiabilityWest Yorkshire Cameras are not liable to give any compensation apart from refunding you the amount you paid for any goods being returned.
We shall also not be liable in any way for acts, failures, omissions or delays resulting in issues such as (but not limited to) loss of sales, business, profits, reputation, business interruption or any other losses.
