Resurgence Online Shop


We honour all requirements of UK Consumer Protection law and without affecting your statutory rights as a consumer we will replace or refund the price of any products which you consider unsatisfactory. We really do hope you enjoy Resurgence & Ecologist magazine and become a loyal supporter of The Resurgence Trust. If at any time you are unhappy with our dealings, we aim to resolve any issues as quickly and amicably as possible.

Prices and Tax

All our prices include VAT, where applicable, charged at current rates. All prices are displayed in UK pounds sterling. If you pay using a credit card with a different currency, your Credit Card Company will convert the transaction to your currency at the going rate at the time of purchase.

The price of the products listed in the shop will be the price quoted on the web site at the time we accept your order. You will be charged any relevant value added tax as part of the purchase price. There is no vat on print membership subscriptions. Vat is payable on e-membership subscriptions and pdf downloads and the cost of this has been incorporated into the price you pay at the time of purchase.

We reserve the right to alter our prices.

Shipping and Handling

We aim to offer an efficient and reliable delivery service. The cost of your delivery is automatically calculated according to the size and weight of items ordered and the delivery address.

Postage is based on actual rate and weight tariffs. This prevents those placing small orders from being over-charged. In order to keep postage to a minimum some items may be sent in recycled packaging.

Our policy is to dispatch all orders within 5 days. If items are unavailable then we will contact you to advise those that are not in stock and those which can be sent immediately. We cannot be held responsible for delays in the postal services. It is best to allow up to 7 working days for delivery in the UK, and up to 10 days outside the UK. Please also allow for Public Holidays.

Secure Online Ordering

We use SagePay to process online payments and collect credit card details. SagePay use SSL (Secure Socket Layer technology) to accept your payment details. The padlock symbol is displayed at the bottom of the screen. Resurgence does not have access to your credit card number since this is sent directly to SagePay.

SagePay provide secure online credit card and debit card payment solutions for thousands of online and mail order businesses and are the largest independent Payment Service Provider in the UK. SagePay has achieved the highest level of compliance under the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI). They adhere to the most stringent levels of fraud screening, ensuring that customer's details remain secure throughout the transaction process.

We accept all major credit and debit cards.

Other Methods of Ordering

If you prefer not to purchase items online, there are a number of other options:

Order confirmation

Once you have placed an order you will be sent a confirmation of your order by e-mail.

Returns and Refunds

You may return any product you buy from us without any fuss for a full refund if you contact us within 7 days of receiving your goods. The value of the item(s) refunded will be refunded to your card if you paid by credit or debit card. If you paid by cheque we will send you a cheque instead. We will not refund the cost of postage. Magazines associated with a membership subscription to The Resurgence Trust are not covered by this guarantee, as payment for a membership subscription is a donation to the charity and not a payment for a 'product'. We are therefore unable to offer refunds on membership subscriptions to The Resurgence Trust.

The guarantee is only valid if the product has not been damaged. We require that all goods be returned by recorded delivery, or that customers obtain a Certificate of Posting from the Post Office as we cannot be held responsible for any goods lost during transit.

Please include your name, delivery address, phone number and your ‘Transaction ID’ in any correspondence. You’ll find this in the confirmation email that you received from SagePay.

In the case of damage in transit, we accept no liability for any damage that occurs once goods have left our premises. If you do receive damaged goods, please retain all relevant documentation in case a claim needs to be made against the carrier.

If your order has been lost in the post it can only be re-sent or refunded 17 working days after it was dispatched because it is only after this period that the Royal Mail regards postage as officially lost. This applies within the UK only.

If you have any questions about our returns and refunds policy, please email us at webshop@resurgence.org

Advertising Terms and Conditions

All advertisements accepted for publication by The Resurgence Trust, are subject to the following terms and conditions, which the advertisement buyer agrees to by any of these actions: purchasing, agreeing to purchase, reserving space, providing the advertisement materials, or otherwise communicating its intent to be an active advertiser.

The party or parties (hereinafter called "ADVERTISER") placing advertisements (hereinafter called "ADVERTISEMENT") and The Resurgence Trust (hereinafter called "PUBLISHER"), by accepting the ADVERTISER's order to publish advertising in one or more of PUBLISHER's printed magazines, online magazines, Web sites, e-mail newsletters or any other medium (hereinafter called "PUBLICATION"), hereby agree to the following terms and conditions:

1. Only these terms and conditions and PUBLISHER'S rate card shall be binding upon the PUBLISHER and ADVERTISER. PUBLISHER shall not be bound by any conditions, appearing on ADVERTISER'S insertion orders, agency forms, copy instructions, or otherwise which conflict with the provisions appearing in this contract and PUBLISHER'S applicable rate card. All terms and conditions are subject to change by PUBLISHER without notice.

2. PUBLISHER reserves the right to exclude any ADVERTISEMENT which, in its opinion, does not conform to the standards of the PUBLICATION. ADVERTISERS are not allowed to quote this PUBLICATION's reviews or ratings in advertisements submitted for publication herein, without the PUBLISHER'S prior written consent. The word "advertisement" shall be printed at either the top or the bottom of advertisements, which, in the opinion of the PUBLISHER might be confused with editorial pages.

3. The subject matter, form, size, wording, illustration, photography, (and if applicable, colour) and typography of ADVERTISEMENT shall be subject to the approval of PUBLISHER. If ADVERTISER is unable to provide ADVERTISEMENT in the type or style requested, PUBLISHER may publish ADVERTISEMENT in such other type or style as, in its opinion, most nearly corresponds, and the ADVERTISEMENT may be inserted without submission of proof unless proof before insertion is requested on the face of the insertion order.

4. PUBLISHER does not accept responsibility for the quality of any ADVERTISEMENT supplied by ADVERTISER or its agent which does not meet PUBLISHER's mechanical specifications and/or is not provided by stated deadline. PUBLISHER reserves the right to alter any film, mechanical, digital file, text message, or other material which does not meet said specifications. In the absence of a suitable ADVERTISEMENT, PUBLISHER may create new graphic and/or text ADVERTISEMENT based on its best knowledge of ADVERTISER's product/service. ADVERTISER or its agent will be charged for all production work, including graphic art and design services, digital work, copywriting, typesetting, halftones, reverses, artwork(s). Services provided by the PUBLISHER will be billed at the prevailing rates, and no commission will be allowed on such charges.

5. All orders are accepted subject to acts of God, fires, strikes, accidents, action of government entity, or other occurrences beyond PUBLISHER'S control, which prevent PUBLISHER from partially or completely producing, publishing, or distributing its PUBLICATION.

6. ADVERTISER agrees to pay for all ADVERTISEMENT published by the PUBLISHER in accordance with the PUBLISHER'S applicable rate card. Payment in full is due at space reservation deadline, unless credit has been approved in advance. All new ADVERTISERS must pre-pay first insertion. When credit has been granted, all payment is due within authorized credit terms from the invoice date. If payment is not made according to credit terms, ADVERTISER will be rebilled at the contracted date. Interest is 2% per month (24% per annum) and shall accrue on past due balances. At 90 days past due, bill will be turned over to collections at the open gross rate. If ADVERTISER is an agency, ADVERTISER'S clients will be billed directly upon default of ADVERTISER and client by appointment of ADVERTISER as its agent, expressly agrees to indemnify PUBLISHER for ADVERTISER'S default. PUBLISHER will render bills to ADVERTISER not less than monthly but failure to bill shall not constitute a breach of contract. If ADVERTISER defaults in payments of bills or if in the judgement of the PUBLISHER, ADVERTISER'S credit becomes impaired, PUBLISHER may require payment in advance. ADVERTISER and agency are jointly separately liable for all charges.

7. If ADVERTISER places fewer ADVERTISEMENTS than contracted for within the contract period, then the ADVERTISER will be liable for additional charges based on the actual earned rate. If ADVERTISER places a greater quantity than contracted for, ADVERTISER may receive a rebate based on actual earned rate upon request and if applicable. Any rebates will be refunded by PUBLISHER upon full payment of contract by advertiser.

8. PUBLISHER retains the right to alter any of its PUBLICATIONs in any way, including changing the name, format, style, frequency, schedule, medium and mission. PUBLISHER will provide reasonable notice to ADVERTISER, who will have the right to change or terminate any advertising contract which is reasonably affected by the change; however ADVERTISER remains responsible for full payment for any ADVERTISEMENT published prior to the change.

9. ADVERTISER agrees to prepay transportation and import charges on all materials sent to the PUBLISHER. If such charges are not prepaid, PUBLISHER may either reject the material or accept it and pay the charges. In the latter case, ADVERTISER shall promptly reimburse PUBLISHER.

10. PUBLISHER'S liability is limited only to the direct cost of the advertisement and not for indirect or subsequent damages due to loss of business or profit, no matter what the circumstances or notifications.

11. ADVERTISER agrees to indemnify, defend and hold harmless PUBLISHER against any judgements, costs, expenses or disbursements incurred by reason of libelous statements, violation of right of privacy, copyright infringement or any other claim(s) or suit(s) arising in connection with ADVERTISEMENTs contracted according to the terms herein.

12. The ADVERTISER warrants to us the:

13. Although we take every precaution to ensure that all ADVERTISEMENTs appear correctly it is also the responsibility of the ADVERTISER to check adverts and notify us of any mistake or inaccuracy immediately it appears. However we will make all reasonable effort to insure accuracy at all times. We will only be liable for any error in the first insertion of an ADVERTISEMENT and not for any subsequent insertions of the same ADVERTISEMENT.

14. We will not be liable for any loss of copy, artwork, photographs or other materials. ADVERTISERS providing such materials are advised to retain adequate copies for their use in the event of such a loss.

15. If we are required by the Trading Standards, police or other relevant authority to disclose information relating to any ADVERTISEMENT, the ADVERTISER authorizes the disclosure of that information. Any such information will be disclosed by us in good faith and the ADVERTISER acknowledges that he will have no cause of action in respect of any such disclosure.
