Terms and conditions
When you purchase or register on the store, you are trading with TALOS Creative, a UK business.
Terms of Sale
Products on the store pages are a display of items for sale and considered only an invitation to treat. US side orders are automated and your order confirmation emails are a receipt of order and not an acceptance. In the event that any products ordered are no longer available at the listed price, size or other details in the product description, TALOS Creative reserves the right to offer an alternative/cancel or refund the order.
Refunds and Returns
Section A – Digital Goods
For products that are downloadable (3D models etc), refunds are not offered for digital goods as the item cannot be physically returned. All products are tested thoroughly to be as described. If you have a problem with a file please report it immediately as some refunds may be made on a case by case basis. Decisions to offer refunds will be made at our discretion.
When you purchase a chapter of a comic (eg The Talos Project) you are buying access to that on-line chapter through a membership. This access never expires and will be available for as long as the website exists. Members who have the most regular purchases and longest running support may be rewarded with discounts and gift as a thank you for their support.
The purchase of an on-line comic is not normally a refundable item since you have already potentially enjoyed the content. Refunds can be considered in the event the comic is not compatible with a particular browser or device if the fault can be replicated. TALOS Creative must be given the opportunity to fix the issue first. If a demonstrable technical fault is found that cannot be resolved, a refund can be offered.
A purchase of a pre-order Talos Web Comic Chapter product guarantees release of the that chapter within one year of purchase to allow production time for creation. Failure to release a pre-ordered chapter within 12 months of purchase date qualifies for a refund if desired. No other conditions are considered for refund.
Section B – US Products Store
Distance Selling Regulations
US Store items are to be returned to 19749 Dearborn St, Chatsworth, CA 91311.
Wrong Address – If you provide an address that is considered insufficient by the courier, the shipment will be returned to our US fulfilment partner. You will be liable for reshipment costs once we have confirmed an updated address with you.
Unclaimed – Shipments that go unclaimed are returned to our US fulfilment partner and you will be liable for the cost of a reshipment.
Shipping – As all the products are created on demand, there will typically be creation time of 2-7 business days to create apparel products (t-shirts etc.) and 2-5 business days for non-apparel (posters etc.) products. Then you should add shipping times on top of that. Speed and price depends on product type and destination.
97.66% of our orders are shipped within 5 business days. More than a half of our orders are shipped within 3 business days or less.
Shipping costs and times are calculated on the checkout page using real-time rates.
Section C – UK Art Prints
For physical goods on the store, ie clothing, art prints etc, these goods are POD (Print-On-Demand) and made as and when you choose a particular design, size or colour. They are therefore considered ‘bespoke’ and are not covered by distance selling regulations. As a result please ensure you are choosing the correct size and colour product.
If we can fix the problem, we’ll reprint your item but if you’re still not happy or would simply prefer your money back then yes, we offer a no quibble guarantee.
Production and delivery turnaround.
All prints are printed on-demand so production times will vary. Typically you should receive your item within a week. When you place an order, you will initially receive an automated confirmation of your order. A follow up email with be sent with an estimate despatch date.
Section D – UK Apparel
If your goods develop a fault within 28 days of delivery, the goods may be returned for either refund in full, or replacement. Replacement only is offered after 28 days and before 12 months. These promises do not apply to faults caused by accident, neglect or misuse.
All apparel is printed on-demand so production times will vary. Typically you should receive your item in around 3-5 days.
Our deliveries in the UK mainland are contracted to outside carriers who deliver Mondays to Fridays (excluding public holidays) between the hours of 8:30 AM and 5:30 PM.
