4. Collect Service
4.1. The collect service enables you to place orders with any online retailer for goods to be delivered to, and collected by you at a Doddle Location ("Collect Service"). On purchase of the goods, you will need to ensure your MyDoddle customer number is included in the addressee details and create an alternative delivery address using the address of the Doddle Location to which the goods are to be delivered for collection. Click here https://www.doddle.com/collect for more information on how to use the Collect services.
4.2. If you register as a MyDoddle member on a 'Pay As You Doddle' basis, you will receive one collection free of charge. This offer applies to first time MyDoddle members only and will be applied to the first Parcel to be collected by you from a Doddle Location.
4.3. In the event the Collect Service is used for orders with any retailer outside the EU, where duties, taxes or other ancillary charges are to be paid on delivery, you shall be liable for any such charges and we reserve the right to invoice you accordingly. It is your responsibility to check and confirm this with any retailer outside of the EU prior to placing any order to be delivered for collection at a Doddle Location. Where an order is accepted and any duty or other tax is payable in respect of that order (and we are aware of such duty or tax payable), the Parcel will not be released until all such outstanding amounts have been paid. Where the parcel is released to you but any duty or other tax remains outstanding, then we reserve the right to invoice you and you shall pay the duty or other tax on receipt of such invoice. In some circumstances, a carrier will not deliver an item into a Doddle Location until any duty or other tax is paid, in which case we or the carrier may contact you to arrange payment of the relevant duty or other tax.
4.4. We are integrating with a number of retailers to offer the Collect Service free of charge to you (save for charges that may be levied by the retailer). Your Parcel will be delivered to the Doddle Location by the retailer and you should ensure that you are happy with the delivery charges to be paid to the retailer. The arrangements that apply to these collections may be different to those set out in these Terms and Conditions and you should check the retailer's terms and conditions carefully for further details. Each retailer may have slightly different requirements for the collection process, including, for example, more stringent ID requirements. In such circumstances, we reserve the right enforce these additional requirements.
4.5. Once the Parcel has been dispatched by the retailer you cannot cancel the Collect service. Unless you have an active subscription to Doddle Unlimited at the time the Parcel is delivered to the Doddle Location or we have an arrangement in place with the retailer (see clause 4.4 above) you will be responsible for paying our charges for the Collect Service. The charges can be found here https://www.doddle.com/. All Collect Service charges are inclusive of VAT.
4.6. Payment of any applicable Collect Service charge must be made before you collect your Parcel. If you sign up for 'Pay As You Doddle', and provide your debit or credit card details to us when you register as a MyDoddle member, payment will be taken using those card details. If you have not provided your debit or credit card details to us, or if for any reason we are unable to process payment using the card details provided by you, you will be required to pay the Collect Service charge before collecting the Parcel at the relevant Doddle Location.
4.7. We (or our partner retailers) will send you an email, or SMS (if you have provided a mobile telephone number as your preferred contact method) with a unique collection code, once your Parcel has been received at the Doddle Location and is ready for collection. If you have downloaded the Doddle mobile app, we may also send you push notifications to update you on the status of your Parcel. Your Parcel will only be available for collection following our notification to you and not any other notification of delivery that you may receive from the retailer (or their carrier). You will be asked to provide your MyDoddle customer number, the collection code and form of ID (and see here for details of acceptable forms of ID https://www.doddle.com/collect when you collect your Parcel. The name of the addressee on the Parcel must match the name attached to the MyDoddle Customer Number on the Parcel. If it does not then we reserve the right to retain Parcel. If a relative or friend is collecting the Parcel on your behalf, they must bring your customer number, collection code and your ID with them, as well as their own acceptable form of ID.
4.8. Parcels delivered to a Doddle Location for collection by you will be held for 7 days (excluding Parcels from our partner retailers which may be held for a different period of time). We will send you email reminders after 2, 4 and 6 days. We may also contact you to confirm if there are any unusual circumstances which mean you are unable to collect the Parcel within the 7 day period.
4.9. If any Parcel has not been collected after 7 days then we may, at our discretion, return the Parcel to the retailer (or the sender), in which case you will be responsible for reimbursing us for the costs of a standard delivery to the retailer's return address and our reasonable administration costs (which shall be up to a maximum of £10).
4.10. Where it is not possible or cost effective for us to return the Parcel to the retailer in accordance with clause 4.9, we may sell or dispose of the Parcel. Before taking any such action, we shall retain the Parcel for a minimum of 6 weeks from the date on which it was received at the Doddle Location and shall use reasonable endeavours to notify you that we will sell or dispose of the Parcel unless you collect it within the 6 week period.
5. Return service
5.1. We have integrated with a number of retailers to offer a service that enables you to returns goods purchased from those retailers (the “Return Service”) free of charge (subject to any charges levied directly by those retailers). The arrangements that apply to these returns may be different to those set out in these Terms and Conditions and you should check the retailer's returns policy carefully for further details.
5.2. Once the Parcel has been accepted and labelled at a Doddle Location you cannot cancel the Return Service.
5.3. We will use reasonable endeavours to obtain proof of delivery from the retailer to whom the Parcel(s) are being returned. Such proof of delivery may include a digital signature or signature by the retailer of a delivery note list.

9.4. If we have cause to open a Parcel in accordance with clause 10.3 above and no issues are found then we will repackage the Parcel at our own cost.
9.5. If any Parcel contains, or we have reasonable suspicion that a Parcel contains, any Prohibited Item or Dangerous Goods:
a) we may deal with the Parcel (including any and all of its contents) at our sole and absolute discretion (without incurring any liability whatsoever to you and/or the intended recipient) including opening that Parcel, delaying processing of the Parcel or notification to or collection by you of the Parcel, disposing of the Parcel in whole or in part, or holding the Parcel for collection by you.

We reserve the right to retain any item that is the subject matter of a claim for damage for further inspection.

14.4. We may, acting reasonably, reject any claim which does not adhere to the above criteria.
14.5. If we accept a refund is due to you, the refund will be made to the payment method of the original transaction within 14 days of our agreement that a refund is due.
