Reminders and Reorders
2.6 Re-ordering is easy as we will retain your contact lens prescription for future orders although we can only supply enough contact lenses to last until the end of your prescription. If your prescription is out of date, we will not be able to supply your contact lenses and you will need to - re-enter the details of your new, valid prescription online. If you would like to take advantage of our reorder process which gives you the opportunity to set up a regular order, whether it is monthly, quarterly or bi-annually, you can do this by selecting this option when completing your online order form. You will be presented with a tick box for a repeat order and an option to set up a reminder for that repeat order. By ticking that box, you consent to us contacting you by email and/or SMS to remind you of your repeat order. We will send you a reminder of your repeat order by email and/or SMS within 7 working days of the order due date (unless otherwise agreed with you). You will then have 5 working days to cancel the repeat order before we process it. If you do not cancel the repeat order before expiry of that 5 day period, your order will be placed and you will receive an order confirmation email acknowledging the details of your repeat order. This email is not an acceptance of your repeat order, just confirmation that we have received it and the contract between us for your repeat order will only be formed as set out in paragraph 4.3 below.
