Terms And Conditions


Welcome to the Hammicks Online Bookstore.

This website has been designed to be clear and easy to navigate, while at the same time providing many different ways for you to see books which are most relevant to your area of practice. You can chose to simply look at books just published, or only forthcoming titles in your area of practice. The full search facility allows you to search the entire database by keyword, or you can chose to browse through our database by subject area.

The records you find here are maintained and updated by Book Data, one of the leading bibliographic services firms in the UK. Along with the usual bibliographic information such as author, title, publisher, price etc the vast majority of records also contain a description of the contents of each book, allowing you to make an accurate assessment as to whether or not the title will suit your needs.

Once you've decided which books you want you can place your order though our website at, or telephone your order to our customer services department on 01784 423321 or email

Delivery Charges

Our delivery charges are as follows:

  • UK Delivery:
    Free standard UK delivery on all orders with effect from midday on the 9th December 2011.

    Books delivered within the UK are sent either by first class post or Securicor Omega depending on the size and weight of the book(s).
  • Overseas Delivery:
    • Europe - Airmail: 3-5 days – price is subject to weight.
    • USA & Rest of World - Airmail: 8-12 days – price is subject to weight.

Delivery of books overseas is via Air Courier, so your books will be delivered securely with a signature required upon delivery in your country.

We always try and keep our delivery charges as competitive as possible, but we ask that you bear in mind the average weight of a law book is much greater than your average paperback novel. The postage charge will depend upon the weight of the book and this will be calculated at checkout if the information is available. If the weight of the book is not known then the postage charge will be estimated and could subject to change but you will be informed of this before it is dispatched.


Customs policies vary widely from country to country, so you should contact your local customs office for further information.  Any additional charges for customs clearance must be borne by you;  we have no control over these charges and cannot predict what they may be.

Returns Policy

Should you change your mind, we are happy to offer a refund for items returned to us within 14 working days of you receiving them and which are still in perfect condition upon their return to us. This will include a refund for the initial cost of posting, (unless postage is standard UK free postage) but not any costs incurred in sending them back.

Please note, we cannot offer refunds or exchanges on any eProducts, including eBooks which have been downloaded or accessed. If you have purchased a book containing software or online access codes, these will need to be sealed and unused in order to be accepted for refund – please e-mail us if you are unsure.

eBooks are also non-returnable - so please ensure you actually want an eBook before you confirm your order.

We are constantly checking the information shown on our website to ensure each record reflects the latest price given by the publisher. We do, however, rely upon publishers to tell us when they have changed their prices, and given the vast number of titles from many different publishers shown on our database it is inevitable that occasionally prices will be incorrect.

If at any point we have to charge a price higher than that indicated on our website at the time of your order we will always advise you of the fact prior to supply, and await your confirmation before proceeding with the order. We will not make any charge to your payment details in relation to the book concerned until we have received your confirmation to proceed with the order.
