Most websites you visit will use cookies in order to improve your user experience by enabling that website to ‘remember’ you, either for the duration of your visit (‘session cookie’) or for repeat visits (‘persistent cookie’).

Cookies do lots of different jobs, like letting you navigate between pages efficiently, storing your preferences, and generally improving your experience of a website. Cookies make the interaction between you and the website faster and easier. If a website doesn’t use cookies, it will think you are a new visitor every time you move to a new page on the site – for example, when you enter your login details and move to another page it won’t recognise you and it won’t be able to keep you logged in.

Some websites will also use cookies to enable them to target their advertising or marketing messages based for example, on your location and/or browsing habits. Cookies may be set by the website you are visiting (‘first party cookies’) or they may be set by other websites who run content on the page you are viewing (‘third party cookies’). Find out more.


What is in a cookie?

A cookie is a simple text file that is stored on your computer or mobile device by a website’s server and only that server will be able to retrieve or read the contents of that cookie. Each cookie is unique to your web browser. It will contain some anonymous information such as a unique identifier and the site name and some digits and numbers. It allows a website to remember things like your preferences or what’s in your shopping basket.


What to do if you don’t want cookies to be set?

Some people find the idea of a website storing information on their computer or mobile device a bit intrusive, particularly when this information is stored and used by a third party without them knowing. Although this is generally quite harmless you may not, for example, want to see advertising that has been targeted to your interests. If you prefer, it is possible to delete cookies that have already been set; but you need to be aware that you will lose some functions of the website.

Smart Buy Terms and Conditions:

  • To qualify towards the target spend levels, goods must be invoiced and supplied between 1st October 2017 and 21st September 2018 inclusive. (We recommend that in order for boat orders where boats are not stock items, to guarantee qualification for the current Smart Buy spending year, they should be confirmed orders by 31st May 2018).

  • Your discount reward can be used on boats of higher value than the specified target but discount amount will remain the same. The discount cannot be applied to any other products or boats of lower value.

  • If a reward is claimed before 21st September 2018, your spend tally will be reduced by the claim amount. Previous spending for the year will not be allowed to be used retrospectively.

  • Unless specified, or specially agreed, all purchases should be paid for at the time of ordering or within our usual 30 days terms where applicable. Where extended terms are required in the case of large boat purchases for instance, permission must be sought from Oarsport, otherwise we reserve the right to omit invoices not paid within our payment terms from the spend tally.

  • Deposits paid do not count towards the spend level. Only when the goods or services concerned are invoiced in full will they qualify.

  • Credit notes/goods returned for refund will reduce spend levels by the value.

  • Club purchases should be confirmed in writing by club purchase order or e-mail.

  • Where a club may have separate accounts e.g. “junior squad”, “masters squad”, “friends of” that account will be updated with the spend and CANNOT be attributed to the main club account so please bear this in mind when placing an order/making a purchase.

  • Private member purchases. The member concerned should, at the time of ordering, whether on-line, by phone, fax, e-mail or in person, declare which rowing club they would like the purchase attributing to. The invoice will be in the name and address of the club and their own name will also appear on the invoice for identification purposes. The member should keep this invoice safe for their own records for insurance/warranty/ownership, however, we will have computer records too.

  • Where the customer would like to upgrade their reward, you will be allowed to pay the difference, but the customer should be aware this could result in delayed delivery times of their reward (Mainly in the case of boats).

  • Some product exclusions may apply.
