Editorial Policy

We encourage users to share, debate, and discuss points of views on our website and Facebook pages.

Everyone has the right to express themselves but should also respect other users. Script Media is impartial and as such will always endeavour to avoid colouring a debate by censoring or altering its content where possible.

While we accept no legal responsibility for individual’s comments, there are occasions when Script Media may be obliged to intervene. Where this is the case, the following guidelines will be applied. You must not make or encourage comments that are:

  • defamatory, false or misleading;
  • insulting, threatening or abusive;
  • obscene or of a sexual nature;
  • offensive, racist, sexist, homophobic, discriminatory or otherwise objectionable;
  • promoting illegal activity;
  • intended to deceive;
  • in contempt of court, i.e. would prejudice a police investigation or court case

These rules do not cover all eventualities and are intended as a guideline and portray the spirit of policy only.

Reader comments that violate the letter or spirit of these rules or our Terms may be removed. If we do remove something, we will generally remove posts, or where necessary, whole threads (not parts). This means that even if only one sentence is objectionable, the whole comment will usually be removed.

We hope that you will understand that, once properly notified of a complaint, we may have to remove a contribution for legal reasons (whatever the rights and wrongs). We are unable to enter into dialogue about individual cases.

Product and Adverts Essentials

This website offers users the ability to order products within various sections on our website (“our “Products”).

This website also offers users the ability to purchase advertising space, either for a certain location or space over a defined period, or to be visible periodically for a number of page impressions spread over a defined period; we refer to this advertising space as “Adverts”. (See the separate Terms and Conditions for Adverts).

Any goods or services available through, and material of any kind accessible or relating to our website, are referred to as our “Services”.

We may add or remove Products or Adverts from our Services at any time without notice.

Terms of purchase for Products

If the Product in question includes an image, or other user content (such as prints, digital images or other products which bear images or user content on or within them) or a digital product (e.g. a digital copy of a photograph) it is a “Personalised Product”; if it is a standard Product which does not include any selected image or user content it is a “non-personalised Product”.

A contract between a user and this website for the purchase of a Product is created as follows:

  • The user places the order for a Product on the website by pressing an order confirmation button at the end of a checkout process.
  • By confirming your order, you are agreeing to purchase the Product you have selected.
  • At this point, we take payment for your order by means of a secure third-party payment gateway.
  • Your order will be confirmed either by writing, by email, by directing you to a “Thanks for your order” page or by fulfilling the order. You will also receive an email detailing your order for the Product, and other information we must provide to you. This email may be sent by our servers and/or may be sent by the third-party payment gateway, thereby confirming payment and the order.

Note that we may reject an order in certain circumstances, namely:

  • your order breaching the requirements of these Terms;
  • the use of images which are corrupted, unsupported technically or inadequately pixelated;
  • the Product you order being unavailable;
  • our inability to obtain authorisation for your payment; or
  • a relevant pricing or Product description error being identified.

If your order is rejected, we will contact you to confirm this and refund any payment made for that order.

We will endeavour to deliver goods and provide services on the basis and in accordance with the timescales mentioned on this site but time shall not be of the essence of those arrangements and we will have no liability if we are delayed in or prevented from providing the goods/services by factors beyond our control.

This website is made available on the basis that there are excluded, to the extent permitted by law, any terms implied by statute or otherwise and all liability for any loss or damage however it arises out of the use of this website or reliance on its content.

Returns, refunds and cancellation

You have the right to cancel your contract for the purchase of a non-personalised Product, provided you notify us of the cancellation no longer than 14 days after the day following the day on which the Product is delivered. you must return the unused non-personalised Product to us within 14 days of notifying us of the cancellation, and must pay the cost of returning the Product to our nominated address. we will refund the purchase price you have paid for the Product and its standard delivery charges (but not any expedited, tracked or other special delivery charges you may have chosen to pay) within 14 days of its return.

However, if the value of the Product has been reduced by any handling of it beyond what is necessary to check whether the Product is as expected, we may deduct an amount to reflect that reduction in value from the sum we refund to you. Please follow any returns procedure for non-personalised Products which we specify from time to time.

Please note that the right to cancel a contract and return Products does not apply to any Personalised Products - although you do have the right to reject any Product which is faulty or not as described in our specifications.
