Terms of service

At Boldport we want you to have safe, rewarding experiences with our products and services. Please read the following carefully. By using our services and products you acknowledge that these details are familiar to you, and that you agree to them.

In addition to this document our Privacy and personal data policy describes how we handle personal data, and our FAQ provides additional information. Please read through them.

Our projects

'Projects' are soldering kits, bare circuit boards, or other items to do with electronics and/or associated materials. Examples of previous projects are shown in the shop and our community site. Those may give an indication to what you may expect future projects to be like.

We do not and cannot guarantee that any project will have particular attributes or that it will be to your liking.

Our projects are not toys and may contain tiny parts. Our projects are intended for use by adults.

Who are our services and products for

We create projects that are intended for those who have at least some electronics and soldering experience and knowledge. For example, some projects require surface-mount soldering or looking up details in a component's datasheet. They may not be suitable for beginners unless they are helped by someone experienced.

Safety ─ this is important!

Safety is the sole responsibility of whoever builds and uses our services and projects; only they can determine whether they have the adequate skill, experience, tools, and materials to do so in a safe manner. Tools (such as soldering irons), materials (such as solder), and other resources (such as electricity) that are required to complete and use our projects may be dangerous unless used properly with appropriate precautions and safety gear.

Some photos and videos that appear on our websites or video channels may not depict all safety precautions or equipment in order to show the project assembly steps more clearly.

Use of the instructions, kits, projects and suggestions on our websites and on our Slack community is at your own risk. Boldport disclaims all responsibility for any resulting damage, injury, or expense. It is your responsibility to make sure that your activities comply with applicable laws, including copyright. Always check the webpage associated with each project before you get started as there may be important updates and/or corrections.

Should the skill for assembling a project be beyond your abilities or comfort, contact us for a return and full refund.

Costs, renewals, and charging

Membership auto-renews on a rolling basis unless cancelled, or when chosen not to renew when gifting a subscription. We charge your preferred payment method on the 28th of each month. Membership costs may change in the future; we will communicate such changes ahead of time via email. Membership cost and other purchases are inclusive of 20% VAT where applicable. The fee does not include import tax or other duties, which will need to be handled by the recipient.

Shipping costs are included in the membership. We ship from the UK using ‘standard shipping’ (that is, untracked). The supplier we use indicates that a package will typically arrive within 2 working days in the UK, 3─5 days within Europe, and 5─7 days elsewhere. This isn’t guaranteed. From experience, however, it may take up to a month in some areas.
