Website Terms and Conditions
These terms and conditions ("Consumer Terms and Conditions") apply your use of the gift web site ("Website"), and when you purchase a Shangri-La Hotels Product or Gift Voucher ("Item").
We are Shangri-La Hotels, however, as you have selected to purchase an Item, we would draw your attention to the fact that this section of the Website is managed by SK Chase Limited ("SK Chase"), who acts as an agent for Shangri-La Hotels and who will collect payments from you on behalf of Shangri-La Hotels. SK Chase is a company incorporated in Scotland (No SC253912) with its registered office at 31 Palmerston Place, Edinburgh, EH12 5AP.

That acceptance will be deemed complete and will be deemed for all purposes to have been effectively communicated to you at the time SK Chase (on behalf of Shangri-La Hotels) sends the Confirmation to you..
