At Monsoon Accessorize, we really do care about the importance of providing a website that is accessible to all user groups, including the disabled. We aim to provide a fully accessible website built in accordance with best practices for accessibility and web standards.
Many Internet users with disabilities find websites difficult or even impossible to use simply because of the way they are designed. That’s why we’ve tried our best to ensure the Monsoon Accessorize website has been designed to be as accessible as possible and to be compatible with the types of adaptive technology used by people with disabilities, including screen readers. That means visitors can control the size of the text and can use 'access keys' on the keyboard rather than the mouse to navigate through the pages.
You’ll be pleased to know that it’s possible to change the font size of this document to your preference through your browser. Depending on your browser of choice, this should be possible through the view and change text size/zoom option.
We also aim for our pages to conform to the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.0, which are endorsed by the Royal National Institute for the Blind. We strive to obey the spirit of the UK Disability Discrimination Act 1995 with respect to the provision of services online, as required by the Disability Rights Commission.

Governing Law And Jurisdiction
However this does not prevent residents of Northern Ireland, Scotland or Europe from starting proceedings in their own local courts.
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 goods 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.
Monsoon Accessorize 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 you buy a new clock from us we would accept your old clock 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.
For any goods purchased on our website (e.g. a lamp) we will accept the old lamp back in store within 28 days with proof of purchase.
Under the WEEE Regulations, all new electrical goods should now be marked with the crossed-out wheeled bin symbol shown below:
Goods 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.
