  1. Conclusion of sales and availability of stock
    • Registered users may place orders for Goods, which Curious Tom may accept or reject. Whether or not Curious Tom accepts an order depends on the availability of Goods, correctness of the information relating to the Goods (including without limitation the price) and receipt of payment or payment authorisation by Curious Tom for the Goods.


  • Curious Tom will indicate the acceptance of your order by delivering the Goods to you and only at that point will an agreement of sale between you and Curious Tom come into effect (the “Sale”). This is regardless of any communication from Curious Tom stating that your order or payment has been confirmed. Curious Tom will indicate the rejection of your order by cancelling it and, as soon as possible thereafter, refunding you for any amount already paid.


  • You may cancel an order at any time provided you do so before receiving a dispatch or delivery notice only in the instance that the Goods do not include a personalised item. In the event that the Goods do include a personalised, you may not cancel your order once payment has been made and the order has been processed. After delivery of the Goods, you may return the Goods only in accordance with the Refunds and Returns Policy.


  • You acknowledge that stock of all Goods on offer is limited and that pricing may change at any time without notice to you. In the case of Goods for sale by Curious Tom, Curious Tom will take all reasonable efforts to monitor stock levels and ensure that when stock is no longer available, that offers thereof are discontinued on the Website. However, we cannot guarantee the availability of stock. When Goods are no longer available after you have placed an order, Curious Tom will notify you and you will be entitled to a refund of any amount already paid by you for such Goods.


  • Certain Goods may not be purchased for re-sale. Should we suspect that any such Goods are being purchased for sale, we are entitled to cancel your order immediately on notice to you.


  1. Payment
    • All transactions will be processed in South African Rand (ZAR).


  • We reserve the right to change our prices without notice – this includes the price of the products as well as applicable shipping costs.



  • PayFast uses the strictest form of encryption, namely Secure Socket Layer 3 (SSL3) and no Card details are stored on the Website.


  • Your details will be stored by Curious Tom separately from card details which are entered by You on PayFast’s secure site.


  • We may also send you email communications about your order and payment.


  • By submitting your order and payment details, You warrant that you are authorised to make payment with the payment card and that there are sufficient funds available to pay for the order.


  1. Delivery of goods
    • Where it accepts your order, Curious Tom will deliver the Goods to You no later than 1 (one) week before the start of Summer of Nerf being the 26th October 2020 (“Delivery Period”).


  • We will notify you if we are unable to deliver the Goods during the Delivery Period. You may then, within 7 (seven) days of receiving such notification elect whether or not to cancel your order for the Goods. If you elect to cancel your order, we will reimburse you for the purchase price.


  • Curious Tom’s obligation to deliver a product to You is fulfilled when we deliver the product to the physical address nominated by you for delivery of the order. Curious Tom is not responsible for any loss or unauthorised use of a product, after it has delivered the product to the physical address nominated by you.


  • Although reasonable care shall be taken, Curious Tom cannot accept responsibility for incorrect delivery details that have been provided to Us, or if an unauthorised person at Your chosen delivery address accepts delivery of your order.


  1. Errors
    • We shall take all reasonable efforts to accurately reflect the description, availability, purchase price and delivery charges of Goods on the Website. However, should there be any errors of whatsoever nature on the Website (which are not due to our gross negligence), we shall not be liable for any loss, claim or expense relating to a transaction based on any error, save – in the case of any incorrect purchase price – to the extent of refunding you for any amount already paid, or otherwise as set out in the Refunds and Returns Policy.


  • Curious Tom shall not be bound by any incorrect information regarding our Goods displayed on any third party websites.


  1. Coupons
    • Curious Tom may from time to time make physical or electronic promotional coupons (“Coupons”) available for use on the Website towards the purchase of Goods. Coupons can only be redeemed while they are valid and their expiry dates cannot be extended.


  • There are two types of Coupons; a Coupon with a fixed amount of a discount, e.g. R100 off (“Fixed Coupon“), and a Coupon with a percentage discount, e.g. 10% off (“Percentage Coupon“).


  • Coupons are issued in Curious Tom s sole discretion and we are entitled at any time to correct, cancel or reject a Coupon for any reason (including without limitation where a Coupon has been distributed in an unauthorised manner). Users do not have a right to Coupons, and Coupons cannot be earned. Coupons are issued under specific terms and conditions regulating when and how they may be used.


  • As a general rule, and unless specified otherwise on the specific Coupon itself:
    • each Coupon can only be used once;


  • only one Coupon can be used per order;


  • only one Coupon can be used on the Website per person per promotion/campaign;


  • Percentage Coupons may only be redeemed on purchases with a total cart value of less than R5,000;


  • a Coupon must be used at check-out – it cannot be used later on existing orders; and


  • the value of the Coupon will be set off against the value of your shopping basket and the balance remaining, if any, will be payable by you.


  • Coupons cannot be used to buy other Coupons, and cannot be exchanged or refunded for cash or credit. Curious Tom is not responsible for any harm due to the loss, unauthorised use or distribution of a Coupon.


  • If for any reason a Coupon does not reflect on the final amount due from you at check-out, you can contact us here to confirm if the Coupon is still valid. If Curious Tom confirms that the Coupon is still valid and you have already placed your order, you can choose whether to cancel the order and place it again with the Coupon, or you can use the Coupon on your next order within the limitations of the specific Coupon’s terms and conditions.


  • You may be required to submit the original communication containing the Coupon code, and any other information reasonably requested by Curious Tom, before you are able to use a Coupon.
