Purchase Terms

The terms on this webpage set out the legal contract that applies when you purchase products from www.yotoplay.com (the Website).

We’ve worked hard to make these Terms easy to understand and avoid legal jargon. Please read them carefully because they are legally binding. These Terms incorporate by reference the Website Terms of Use on our Website.

By placing an order you agree to these Terms and also represent that you (i) may legally do so, (ii) are the age of majority in the jurisdiction where you reside, and (iii) have the power to enter into a binding contract with us.

When I buy from the Yoto website, who is my contract with?

On our website, you can buy items such as the Yoto Player, accessories and Make Your Own Cards, some of which are bespoke.

When you purchase from Yoto Limited, the legal contract is between you and us.

Sometimes we offer promotions or discount codes for use to make purchases on our website.Please see our Promotions page for the applicable terms each time. Note we reserve the right to update those terms and/or disable discount codes at any time (without notice).

When is my contract completed?

Your contract with us is created when you place an Order with us and completed when your product is shipped to you, and not at the time you place your order. We’ve explained in the next few sections the process that takes place when assessing your order, and before the contract is formed between you and us.

We really do try to make sure all pricing, images and details of the items appearing on the Website are accurate at the time you place your order. We don’t always get it right though, and this sometimes means your order cannot be accepted and completed. If this is the case, we will let you know why by email (to the address used to make the purchase), as soon as reasonably practicable and you will be refunded.

When will my chosen payment method get charged?

When your order is accepted by us, your chosen payment method will be charged.

If you order products from Yoto for delivery to other countries, your order may be subject to import duties and taxes. Neither we nor the seller has any control over these charges, and the delivery company will usually leave you instructions on how to pay these charges.

I’ve changed my mind. When and how can I cancel my order/return my order?

If you’ve changed your mind you can cancel and (where appropriate) return your order: * at any time before we take payment from your account for the goods; or * at any time during the 60 days from the day after the date the Products were delivered. If your order was delivered in multiple batches, then this timeframe starts on the day after the last item in your order was delivered to you.

You will not be able to cancel your order if your item is bespoke or has been altered by you in any way.

If you cancel because you’ve changed your mind, you will receive a refund of the price paid for the products plus any applicable standard delivery charges (but not any enhanced or premium delivery charges). Please make sure you return the product unused, in the same condition you received it, as well as all the packaging and included accessories, but nothing else!

Your refund can be reduced if you’ve changed your mind and can’t manage to meet the return requirements above, or if you have used the item more than you would be able to in a shop when deciding whether to buy it and it is no longer in a resaleable condition.

Please see our Contact Us page for our contact details to cancel your order. We will also, if applicable, then provide you with instructions on how to return the product. Your order will be cancelled at the time your cancellation request is received.

You’ll usually receive your refund within 14 days of the returned product being received back from you, or within 14 days of your cancellation notice if the products haven’t been dispatched yet.

I’ve bought a Yoto Gift Certificate, what are my rights?

The value of your Gift Certificate can be redeemed for purchases online at [ https://us.yotoplay.com] ( https://us.yotoplay.com) using the digital pin code provided to the email address with which you purchased the Voucher.

The Gift Certificate balance cannot be exchanged for cash or redeemed against the purchase of another card.

The maximum amount that an individual Gift Certificate can hold is USD$100. You can check the balance of your Gift Certificate via the link included in your purchase email.

Gift Certificates can be used during promotional periods and with Yoto Tokens or Yoto Club discount.

Your Gift Certificate is valid for a period of 12 months from the date of Gift Certificate purchase, following which the card balance will expire automatically. A Gift Certificate cannot be used after the expiry date and any remaining balance will be removed. The Gift Certificate will become invalid and no longer available for use. We have no obligation to remind or inform you of a Gift Certificate’s expiry and it is your sole responsibility to ensure that any balance is used in full prior to expiry.

A Gift Certificate expires automatically once its balance is zero.

Gift Certificates may be used to pay for the whole or any part of an online order, including postage.

Any goods paid for using a Gift Certificate that are subsequently returned for a refund will be credited to the original Gift Certificate. For returns where part payment was taken from a Gift Certificate, the refund will be credited to your Gift Certificate in the first instance.

If a partial refund is made for any purchase using a Gift Certificate and another method of payment, then any refund amount owing will be credited to the Gift Certificate in the first instance.

If the total to be refunded is more than originally paid by Gift Certificate, then any remaining refund balance will be refunded to the other method of payment used by you (i.e. debit/credit card or cash).

What laws apply to these Terms? These Terms are governed by the law, and disputes are to be resolved, as set out in the Website Terms of Use.

Changes to these Terms. As Yoto grows and improves, we might have to make changes to these Terms. We will do this by uploading the latest version with a date confirming when they went live.
