Contract creation and electronic contracting

The technical steps required to create the contract between you and us are as follows:

You place the order for your products on the Website by pressing the confirm order button at the end of the checkout process. You will be guided through the process of placing an order by a series of simple instructions on the Website.

We will send to you an order acknowledgement email detailing the products you have ordered. This is not an order confirmation or order acceptance from The ID Band Company.

As your product is shipped from our warehouse, we will send you a dispatch confirmation email.

Order acceptance and the completion of the contract between you and us will take place on the dispatch to you of the Products ordered unless we have notified you that we do not accept your order, or you have cancelled it in accordance with the instructions in Change or cancel an order as detailed below.

Non-acceptance of an order may be a result of one of the following:
1. The product you ordered being unavailable from stock.
2. Our inability to obtain authorisation for your payment.
3. The identification of a pricing or product description error.
4. You not meeting the eligibility to order criteria set out in the main Terms & Conditions.

The contract will be concluded in English.

The details of your specific contract will not be filed by The ID Band Company. If you do require any information regarding orders you have placed with The ID Band Company, please email us at sales@sportsguardian.com.


We deliver all orders via second class post within the UK and airmail for all other countries via Royal Mail unless you requested express delivery with our international courier service. We cannot accept responsibility for any delays caused by disruptions, strikes or other problems with Royal Mail's network or with any other postal service which form part of the delivery chain.

We endeavour to dispatch orders within 1-3 working days, starting the day after you place your order unless otherwise stated in the product detail page for the item you are buying. If we are unable to dispatch your order within this timescale, we will contact you via email to explain the delay and to advise when we expect to be able to dispatch your order. Very occasionally we may be out of stock for a specific item while more items are manufactured / delivered. This sometimes happens during periods of exceptional demand. If we are not able to dispatch your order within 5 working days starting the day after we receive your order (and if the product detail page does not state a longer dispatch time), we will email you with the estimated delivery date for your goods. If this happens, we will do our utmost to get your order to you within 10 working days. International orders can take up to 20 working days starting from the date of dispatch unless Express Delivery is selected.


Occasionally there may be information on our Website or in the Service that contains typographical errors, inaccuracies or omissions that may relate to product descriptions, pricing, promotions, offers, product shipping charges, transit times and availability. We reserve the right to correct any errors, inaccuracies or omissions, and to change or update information or cancel orders if any information in the Service or on any related website is inaccurate at any time without prior notice (including after you have submitted your order).

We undertake no obligation to update, amend or clarify information in the Service or on any related website, including without limitation, pricing information, except as required by law. No specified update or refresh date applied in the Service or on any related website, should be taken to indicate that all information in the Service or on any related website has been modified or updated.


In addition to other prohibitions as set forth in the Terms of Service, you are prohibited from using Sports Guardian or its content: (a) for any unlawful purpose; (b) to solicit others to perform or participate in any unlawful acts; (c) to violate any international, federal, provincial or state regulations, rules, laws, or local ordinances; (d) to infringe upon or violate our intellectual property rights or the intellectual property rights of others; (e) to harass, abuse, insult, harm, defame, slander, disparage, intimidate, or discriminate based on gender, sexual orientation, religion, ethnicity, race, age, national origin, or disability; (f) to submit false or misleading information; (g) to upload or transmit viruses or any other type of malicious code that will or may be used in any way that will affect the functionality or operation of the Service or of any related website, other websites, or the Internet; (h) to collect or track the personal information of others; (i) to spam, phish, pharm, pretext, spider, crawl, or scrape; (j) for any obscene or immoral purpose; or (k) to interfere with or circumvent the security features of the Service or any related website, other websites, or the Internet.

13.1. Although we make reasonable efforts to provide, maintain and update Sports Guardian, it is provided "as is" and, to the extent permitted by law, we make no representations, warranties or guarantees, whether express or implied (including but not limited to the implied warranties of satisfactory quality and fitness for a particular purpose), that Sports Guardian or any particular services you access through Sports Guardian (a) are accurate, complete or up-to-date; (b) will meet your particular requirements or needs; or (c) will always be available, error free, uninterrupted or free of viruses.

You expressly agree that your use of, or inability to use, the Service is at your sole risk. The Service relies on third party services (such as mobile telecommunications networks, internet, global positioning and similar navigation systems and third party servers) over which we have no control. While we will use our best endeavours to ensure that the Service is available, we cannot accept any responsibility for any error or failure by a third party service.

We are under the impression that paramedics in the UK specifically check people’s necks and wrists for ID but this may not be the case in all areas of the UK or abroad. If in doubt we recommend you check with the emergency services in your area to see if they are aware of ID products and to check whether they do indeed look for such ID. We cannot accept any responsibility should a medical ID product not be found and/or the information printed on, inserted into or accessible via the product is not acted upon. Wearing or carrying any form or ID product purchased from us, does not guarantee that it will be located by the emergency services or other third party.

13.2. We are not responsible for external links to or from Sports Guardian and cannot guarantee these will always work.

13.3. Nothing in these terms excludes or limits our liability for:
1. death or personal injury arising from our negligence;
2. fraud or fraudulent misrepresentation;
3. any loss or damage to a device or digital content belonging to you, if you can show that a) this was caused by us and b) we failed use to use reasonable skill and care to prevent this; or
4. any other liability that cannot be excluded or limited under English law.

13.4. Subject to clause 13.3 of these terms, we will not be liable or responsible to you or any person you use Sports Guardian on behalf of for:
• any harm, loss or damage suffered where this is not caused by i) our negligence; or ii) our breach of these terms
• any loss or damage arising from an inability to access and/or use Sports Guardian in whole or in part
• any business loss (including but not limited to loss of profits, revenue, contracts, anticipated savings, data, goodwill or wasted expenditure)
• any indirect or consequential losses that were not foreseeable to both you and us when you commenced using Sports Guardian (loss or damage is "foreseeable" if it was an obvious consequence of our breach or if it was recognised by you and us at the time we entered into the contract created by your use of Sports Guardian).

13.5. This clause 13 does not affect any legal rights you may have as a consumer in relation to defective services or software. Advice about your legal rights is available from your local Citizen's Advice or Trading Standards Office.


The obligations and liabilities of the parties incurred prior to the termination date shall survive the termination of this agreement for all purposes.

These Terms of Service are effective unless and until terminated by either you or us. You may terminate these Terms of Service at any time by notifying us that you no longer wish to use our Services, or when you cease using our site.

If in our sole judgment you fail, or we suspect that you have failed, to comply with any term or provision of these Terms of Service, we also may terminate this agreement at any time without notice and you will remain liable for all amounts due up to and including the date of termination; and/or accordingly may deny you access to our Services (or any part thereof).


The failure of us to exercise or enforce any right or provision of these Terms of Service shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision.

These Terms of Service and any policies or operating rules posted by us on this site or in respect to The Service constitutes the entire agreement and understanding between you and us and govern your use of the Service, superseding any prior or contemporaneous agreements, communications and proposals, whether oral or written, between you and us (including, but not limited to, any prior versions of the Terms of Service).
