You can always end your contract with us. Your rights when you end the contract will depend on what you have bought, whether there is anything wrong with it, how we are performing and when you decide to end the contract:
Ending the contract because of something we have done or are going to do. If you are ending a contract for a reason set out at 6.2.1 the contract will end immediately and we will refund you in full for any Products which have not been provided and you may also be entitled to compensation. The reasons are:
Exercising your right to change your mind if you are a consumer. If you are a consumer then for most products bought online you have a legal right to change your mind within 14 days and receive a refund.
When consumers don’t have the right to change their minds. Your right as a consumer to change your mind does not apply in respect of:
How long do consumers have to change their minds? If you are a consumer how long you have to change your mind depends on what you have ordered and how it is delivered.
Ending the contract where we are not at fault and there is no right to change your mind. Even if we are not at fault and you do not have a right to change your mind (see clause 1), you can still end the contract before it is completed, but you may have to pay us compensation. A contract for Products is completed when the Product is delivered and paid for. A contract for Services is completed when we have finished providing the Services and you have paid for them. If you want to end a contract before it is completed where we are not at fault and you have not changed your mind, just contact us to let us know. The contract will end immediately and we will refund any sums paid by you for Products not provided but we may deduct from that refund (or, if you have not made an advance payment, charge you) reasonable compensation for the net costs we will incur as a result of your ending the contract.
Tell us you want to end the contract. To end the contract with us, please let us know by emailing us at email@example.com. Please provide your name, address, details of the order and, where available, your phone number and email address.
Returning Products after ending the contract. If you end the contract for any reason after Products have been dispatched to you or you have received them, you must return them to us. You must either return the goods by posting them back to us at 11 Parnell Street, Dublin1 or (if they are not suitable for posting) allow us to collect them from you. Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org for a return label or to arrange collection. If you are exercising your right to change your mind you must send off the goods within 14 days of telling us you wish to end the contract.

In all other circumstances (including where you are exercising your right to change your mind) you must pay the costs of return.
What we charge for collection. If you are responsible for the costs of return and we are collecting the Product from you, we will charge you the direct cost to us of collection.
How we will refund you. We will refund you the price you paid for the Products including delivery costs, by the method you used for payment. However, we may make deductions from the price, as described below.
When we may make deduction from refunds if you are a consumer exercising your right to change your mind. If you are exercising your right to change your mind:

We may end the contract if you break it. We may end the contract for a Product and/or Services at any time by writing to you if:

We may withdraw the product. We may write to you to let you know that we are going to stop providing the Product and/or Services.

How to tell us about problems. If you have any questions or complaints about the Product, please contact us. You can write to us at email@example.com.
Your obligation to return rejected Products. If you wish to exercise your legal rights to reject Products you must either post them back to us or (if they are not suitable for posting) allow us to collect them from you. We will pay the costs of postage or collection. Please call email us at firstname.lastname@example.org for a return label or to arrange collection.
Where to find the price for the Product. The price of the Product (which includes VAT) will be the price indicated on the order pages when you placed your order. We take all reasonable care to ensure that the price of the Product advised to you is correct. However please see clause 3 for what happens if we discover an error in the price of the Product you order.
Charges and payment for the Products and/or Services. In consideration of the provision of the Products and/or Services by Black Hat Tattoo, the consumer and/or the tattoo artist shall pay the fees as displayed on our website.
We will pass on changes in the rate of VAT. If the rate of VAT changes between your order date and the date we supply the Product and/or Services, we will adjust the rate of VAT that you pay, unless you have already paid for the product in full before the change in the rate of VAT takes effect.
What happens if we got the price wrong. It is always possible that, despite our best efforts, some of the Products we sell may be incorrectly priced. We will normally check prices before accepting your order so that, where the Product’s correct price at your order date is less than our stated price at your order date, we will charge the lower amount. If the Product’s correct price at your order date is higher than the price stated to you, we will contact you for your instructions before we accept your order.
When you must pay and how you must pay. We accept payment with all major credit and debit cards. When you must pay depends on what product you are buying:
Our right of set-off if you are a tattoo artist. If you are a tattoo artist you must pay all amounts due to us under these Terms of Service in full without any set-off, counterclaim, deduction or withholding (other than any deduction or withholding of tax as required by law).
We can charge interest if you pay late. If you do not make any payment to us by the due date we may charge interest to you on the overdue amount at the rate of 4% a year above the EURIBOR’S base rate from time to time or at a rate of 4% at any time where the EURIBOR rate is below zero. This interest shall accrue on a daily basis from the due date until the date of actual payment of the overdue amount, whether before or after judgment. You must pay us interest together with any overdue amount.
What to do if you think an invoice is wrong. If you think an invoice is wrong please contact us immediately to let us know. You will not have to pay any interest until the dispute is resolved. Once the dispute is resolved we will charge you interest on correctly invoiced sums from the original due date.
While we do not exclude or limit in any way our liability to you where it would be unlawful to do so, in no event will we be liable for any loss or damage including without limitation, indirect or consequential loss or damage, or any loss or damage whatsoever arising from loss of data or profits arising out of, or in connection with, the use of the Products and/or Services.
If you are a tattoo artist, we exclude all implied conditions, warranties, representations or other terms that may apply to our Services.
To the maximum extent permitted by Applicable Law, our total liability to you shall be limited to the amount of booking fee paid by you (if any) within the six-month period preceding the event that gave rise to the claim or €100, whichever is lower.
In no event shall we, our employees, agents and/or sub-contractors be liable to you for any loss, liability, damages, claims or expenses to the extent arising as a result of your use of the Products and/or Services in a manner contrary to the instructions given by us.

To use the Services or buy our Products, you must
When you make a booking or buy Products from us you enter into a contract with us. In order for us to perform that contract and make the Services available to you, we will be required to collect, Process and store certain Personal Data about you. This Processing is necessary for the performance of our contract with you or in order to take steps at your request prior to entering into the contract.
We use third party vendors and hosting partners to provide the necessary hardware, software, networking, storage, and related technology required to run the Services. Some of these third parties may provide their services from locations outside the EEA.

You agree to the transmission of your Personal Data to, and Processing of your Personal Data by us and our authorised third-party vendors for these purposes.

We may transfer this agreement to someone else. We may transfer our rights and obligations under these Terms of Service to another organisation. We will contact you to let you know if we plan to do this.

Nobody else has any rights under this contract. This contract is between you and us. No other person shall have any rights to enforce any of its terms.
If a court finds part of this contract illegal, the rest will continue in force. Each of the paragraphs of these Terms of Service operates separately. If any court or relevant authority decides that any of them are unlawful, the remaining paragraphs will remain in full force and effect.
Even if we delay in enforcing this contract, we can still enforce it later. If we do not insist immediately that you do anything you are required to do under these Terms of Service, or if we delay in taking steps against you in respect of your breaking this contract, that will not mean that you do not have to do those things and it will not prevent us taking steps against you at a later date. For example, if you miss a payment and we do not chase you but we continue to provide the Products, we can still require you to make the payment at a later date.
Which laws apply to this contract and where you may bring legal proceedings if you are a consumer. These Terms of Service are governed by Irish law and you can bring legal proceedings in respect of the Products in the Irish courts.

Force majeure. Black Hat Tattoo shall not be in breach of these Terms of Service nor liable for delay in performing, or failure to perform, any of its obligations under these Terms of Service if such delay or failure result from events, circumstances or causes beyond its reasonable control.
The Black Hat Tattoo takes data protection and people’s privacy very seriously and we are committed to comply with data protection laws.

As a normal part of our services, The Black Hat Ltd inevitably holds some of your personal data such as, but not limited, your name, address, telephone number, email address. The purpose of this document is to clearly describe how we process that data, how we respect your privacy, and how you may exercise your right to receive a copy of that data.
Our goal is to deliver valuable services to our customers and an accurate promotion and communication.

Theses information and data will be used only by and for The Black Hat Tattoo and we do not sell or make available any of your details to others such as direct-mail or other marketing companies (if you are contacted by any such company who state or imply that they received your contact details from us, we would dearly love to hear from you).
Note that “personal data” in the context of the Data Protection Act just means data (like your phone number or an invoice) that can be identified with a particular individual (we can identify that the data relates to you through your name and address). It does not mean sensitive data – we do not obtain or hold sensitive information on you, just the information referred to above which is necessary to deliver valuable service to our customers.

You are entitled to a copy of your personal data though we may limit how frequently we comply with these requests as per the Irish Data Protection Act, where we suspect abuse of this right, such as requesting this information daily. We do not currently charge for this service, though we reserve the right to do so in the future, because we fully respect your right of access to this data. Because we also have to protect your privacy, and guard against others trying to access your data, we will normally only post the data to your home address: should you have changed your address unknown to us, you must submit proof of your change of address with your request.
