Elite Stallions Terms and Conditions

  1. All prices and terms, and the availability of stallions are subject to change. The Customer must confirm these with ES immediately prior to ordering and payment.
  2. Payment is required in full at the time of nomination and no semen will be dispatched prior to full and cleared payment, health certificates and delivery charges. ES does not charge for debit card, electronic transfer or bank draft payments. Payments made by cheque must be cleared before any semen can be dispatched. Payments made by credit card may be subject to a surcharge, which you will be informed of prior to payment.
  3. All fees are subject to VAT at 20% unless otherwise stated.
  4. Customers are presumed to have read all information and advice imparted verbally or in writing by ES. ES uses reasonable endeavours to ensure that all information and advice provided by it is accurate. However, ES cannot accept liability for any incorrect information. Customers are advised to verify the accuracy of all information themselves, and to discuss all issues with their vet as appropriate.
  5. All chilled and frozen semen supplied are subject to the terms offered by the supplying stud, if frozen semen is used please be aware that you may be charged per pregnancy if doses are split. Please confirm terms with ES prior to insemination and note that most frozen semen sold does not have any guarantees or stud terms.
  6. Elite Stallions must be informed if semen is to be used as part of an embryo transfer procedure or ICSI as each supplier has specific terms that will apply in these circumstances.
  7. ES provides no product exchange or money back guarantee. Once payment has cleared the order is placed and cannot be refunded or exchanged.
  8. Semen advertised by ES may be unavailable at times without notice. ES will in these circumstances use reasonable endeavours to provide semen in exchange (of the same value or a lesser value to that ordered, and only from the same supplier) or a refund, if no semen has yet been delivered under the order. In the event that semen has already been delivered under an order and semen from the same supplier cannot be provided in exchange, the mare will be required to miss a cycle.
  9. Liability and risk for the semen and any container it is transported in is the responsibility of the relevant stud prior to despatch, the transport company whilst in transit and the person or company to whom the semen is delivered from arrival.
  10. ES is not liable under any circumstances if the stud have not included the original EU health certification with the semen and it is the responsibility of the vet / AI Technician to ensure the correct papers are included.
  11. ES is not liable under any circumstances for any loss or costs incurred where semen is unavailable or delayed, including, but not limited to, veterinary, livery or transport costs.
  12. Time of delivery is the responsibility of the relevant stud and transport company. ES accepts no liability for the time of delivery of semen. Although the transport couriers endeavour to deliver in accordance with timed deliveries, they do not guarantee a timed delivery. As such, neither the transport companies nor ES provide any compensation for any loss or costs arising from late delivery of semen, and in addition the full transport charge will still apply and is payable by the customer.
  13. ES will use reasonable endeavours to resolve any disputes relating to the quality or other properties of any semen, but liability for semen rests solely with the relevant stud.
  14. No guarantee of pregnancy is given by ES under any circumstances whatsoever.
  15. ES reserves the right to refuse to accept any order and to cancel any order already placed (whether semen has already been delivered under the order or not) at any time and at the sole and absolute discretion of ES.
  16. In the event that ES cancels any order, the full amount paid by the Customer will be refunded, unless the Customer has already received a dose or more of semen, in which case the Customer will be refunded the full amount paid less a deduction for the value of goods received.
  17. ES is in no way endorsing or recommending any third party referred to on the website or contained in the information provided by ES, and ES is not responsible or liable for any third party's actions.
  18. All orders placed are subject to the laws and jurisdiction of England and Wales.
  19. ES does not take any responsibility whatsoever for clients who cannot obtain full breeding papers in the event that they have used a stallion that has been licensed but has not completed a performance test or if a stallion is removed from the full studbook at any point.
