Terms and conditions for the supply of Depend® products

It is important that you read these terms and conditions carefully. Together with our privacy policy, delivery and returns policy and our legal statement they govern our relationship with you in relation to this website and your purchase of goods through it. If you have any general queries or questions about these terms and conditions or do not wish to accept them, please contact the Depend team on 0800 011 3232.

You may have other rights granted by law, and these Terms and Conditions do not affect these unless you are purchasing goods from us in connection with your business, in which case we exclude to the fullest extent permissible in law, all conditions, warranties and stipulations, express (other than those set out in these terms and conditions and the contract between us for the purchase of the goods) or implied, statutory, customary or otherwise which, but for such exclusion, would or might subsist in your favour.

The Contract Between You and Us

a. Any contract for purchases made through this website will be between us, Kimberly-Clark Ltd. Kimberly-Clark Limited is a limited company registered in England and Wales, registered number 00308676, with its registered office address at 1 Tower View, Kings Hill, West Malling, Kent ME19 4HA.

b. To purchase from us you must be over 18 and resident in the United Kingdom.

c. Once you have completed your order process, you will be asked to confirm that it is correct. If it is not correct, you can revisit your order and correct the mistakes before confirming and submitting your order to us. It is your responsibility to ensure that your order is correct. Payment is due in full at the time of ordering and you may pay by Maestro, VISA, MasterCard and VISA Electron. Once payment has been received we will confirm to you whether your order has been accepted by sending an email to you at the email address you provide to us as part of the order process. The email will include your name, products ordered and the total price. Our acceptance of your order brings into existence a legally binding contract between us on these terms.

d. If the goods that you have ordered are no longer available, we may offer you substituted goods of a similar nature and quality. In this case, we will contact you and ask if you wish to proceed. If you confirm that you do wish to proceed, please remember that we will still not be under an obligation to supply the goods to you until we have confirmed that we have accepted your order.

e. The prices payable for goods as set out in the web site are inclusive of VAT and delivery, unless otherwise stated. Kimberly-Clark has taken every care in the preparation of the content of this website, in particular to ensure that prices quoted are correct at time of publishing and all products have been fairly described. However, prices are subject to change without notice, and orders will only be accepted if there are no material errors in the description of the goods or their prices as advertised on this website. All payments must be made in full at the time of placing the order by Maestro, VISA, MasterCard or VISA Electron. If we are unable to accept your order for any reason then we will, at our option, either not debit your credit card or refund any money paid by you in respect of that order. We will not dispatch the goods until we receive payment in full. All items are subject to availability. We will inform you as soon as possible if the goods you have ordered are not available by e-mailing you.

f. HM Revenue & Customs allow some products to be zero-rated for VAT purposes where they have been specifically designed for use by persons who have a chronic condition which has a long-term and substantial adverse effect upon his/her everyday life. The Depend range of products are designed specifically to empower the individual in coping with their condition and to rebalance their life.

You are eligible for VAT relief if:

  • You are purchasing these products for yourself or a member of your immediate family who suffers from a chronic incontinence condition for your or their personal use in managing that condition; and
  • You are not purchasing these products for a state regulated care or welfare provider or institution such as nursing home or hospital or for any other commercial purpose; and
  • You or the person for whom you are making this purchase, are not an in-patient or resident of an institution such as a hospital or nursing care home.

Please refer to HMRC VAT Notice 701/7 if you require any further information in respect of this VAT relief.
