Distance Selling Regulations

“The Distance Selling Regulations (DSRs) implement European Council Directive (97/7/EC) and for most goods and services provide additional rights to consumers buying at a distance to encourage confidence in this method of buying. The protection the DSRs offer is important because consumers cannot inspect goods or services before they buy when they shop at a distance.

The purpose of the legislation is to:

  • Give consumers confidence to buy goods and services where there is no face to face contact with the seller, and
  • Ensure that all traders selling at a distance in the normal course of their business meet certain basic requirements.

The DSRs say that we must provide consumers with clear information so that they can make an informed choice about whether or not they wish to buy from us. In most cases we must also give consumers the right to a cancellation period.” *

WEEE Regulations

The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Directive is now UK law. The legislation aims to make producers pay for the collection, treatment and recovery of waste electrical equipment. The regulations also mean that suppliers of equipment like high street shops and Internet retailers must allow consumers to return their waste equipment free of charge.  

The amount of WEEE we throw away is increasing by around 5% each year, making it the fastest growing waste stream in the UK.

  • Much of the UK’s WEEE ends up in landfill, where the lead and other toxins it contains can cause soil and water contamination. This can have a harmful effect on natural habitat, wildlife and also human health.
  • Many electrical items that we throw away can be repaired or recycled. Recycling items helps to save our natural finite resources and also reduces the environmental and health risks associated with sending electrical products to landfill.

Distributors of new Electric and Electronic Equipment (EEE) have a part to play in reducing the amount of WEEE going into landfill sites.  

GuitarZone is obliged under these regulations to offer our customers free take-back of their WEEE on a like-for-like basis when they buy a new Electrical or Electronic product from us.

For example, if a customer bought a new electric guitar from us we would accept their old electric guitar and prevent it going into a landfill site by disposing of it safely. Customers must return their WEEE item to us within 28 days of purchasing their new item.

Under the WEEE Regulations, all new electrical products should now be marked with the crossed-out wheeled bin symbol.  

Products are marked with this symbol to show that they were produced after 13th August 2005, and should be disposed of separately from normal household waste so that they can be recycled.
