FAQ
Stock and Availability

Whilst every effort is taken to ensure all items in the store are always in stock, occasionally some items will be temporarily out of supply.


If we are expecting to receive more of an item from our suppliers we may make it available for pre-order. In this case we will usually advise on the product page, often in the size selection box, the date on which we're expecting to receive the stock. If any delay subsequently occurs we will endeavour to contact the affected customers to inform them and provide an updated delivery date.


Occasionally it will happen that we accept an order but are unable to fulfil it. In this case we will contact you to advise of the problem and to discuss how to proceed with your order. If we are unable to supply any items on an order, these will of course be refunded.

Delivery and Shipping

USA SHIPPING OPTIONS

Standard Delivery ($9.99) - Shipping takes 5-10 days from dispatch in the UK and will be delivered to you by USPS. This is an untracked mail service so you will not receive a tracking number for your shipment.

Please note that if your order exceeds 2kg in weight, $200 in value or certain dimension limits, then the standard delivery option may not be available. This is due to restrictions imposed by the mail system.


Express Delivery (from $19.50) - Shipping takes 1-3 business days from dispatch and will be delivered by DHL. You will be provided with a tracking number on dispatch of your order. The price of this service is dependent on the weight and volume of your order - you will be shown the correct cost at checkout before submitting your order.


If your order includes a personalised item this may add an additional 3-5 days to dispatch of your order regardless of which delivery service is selected.



CUSTOMS & DUTY

Please note that all items are shipped from the United Kingdom and may incur duty & other charges upon entering other countries. Any duty, clearance, tax or carrier charges must be paid by the recipient and United Direct will not accept liability for any such costs.

In the USA the threshold for customs is $200, with any orders below this value usually not incurring any customs (we can't accept liability for any exceptions). Any orders above this value will likely incur additional charges, which our carrier will contact you to take payment for.

We are unable to advise what the thresholds and rates are for other countries as these are determined by the respective governments and can vary significantly between countries and even items. If upon delivery there are any additional charges due our carrier will contact you to arrange payment.



SHIPPING OUTSIDE THE USA


Standard Delivery - Shipping takes 3-10 days from dispatch. This is an untracked mail service so you will not receive a tracking number for your shipment.

Please note that if your order exceeds 2kg in weight, $200 in value or certain dimension limits, then the standard delivery option may not be available.


Express Delivery - Our international express carrier provides a fully traceable delivery service. Normally 1 - 4 working days transit time from when the order leaves our warehouse.


Some more remote addresses may incur longer transit times. Cost dependent on the weight and volume of your order.


If your order includes a personalised item this may add an additional 3-5 days to dispatch of your order regardless of which delivery service is selected.



SUPPLIER DISPATCHES

Certain items may be dispatched directly from the manufacturer and this can typically take longer. Wherever this is the case we will advise of the additional time needed in the item's description.

The manufacturer will choose the appropriate carrier to deliver your item.



Additional Information

Different Stock Availability - If you have selected items with different availability times then we will despatch your order when all items are ready:


Despatching of Orders - Although we try to process and despatch your order on the day of order, this may not always be possible, for the following reasons:

  • Pre-Orders - Products on Pre-Order or products that are not in stock at the time of ordering will despatched in the period specified on the website

Frequently Asked Questions

Many internet users are concerned about security on the web - below are answers to few questions we are commonly asked:


What is the Card Security Number? Also known as a CV2 number, this is a special 3 digit number that appears on the far right side of the signature strip on your card. This number is unique to each card, and gives you extra protection against fraud. Note: with American Express, the card security number is 4 digits long and is printed on the front of the card.


Who are CyberSource? – United Direct has chosen CyberSource as a partner for its secure server software. They are a leading payment system provider to online businesses. For further information about CyberSource please visit their web site at http://cybersource.co.uk.


Is shopping with United Direct safe? - Communication between you, us and CyberSource is encrypted using the SSL mechanism built into your browser. This ensures that even if someone were able to monitor the traffic between you and the CyberSource server, they would not be able to read it. Encryption is used on all pages within the buying process, making shopping at www.store.manutd.com as safe as possible.


How do we protect the Buyers Data? - The CyberSafe software sits behind a corporate firewall. Access to this machine is strictly controlled, preventing unauthorized access to your personal data. Once you have passed your Credit Card details to United Direct, they are stored on the CyberSafe server in an encrypted format.


Is the transaction Real-Time? - All Credit Card transactions are completed in real-time. After you have confirmed your order, we make an immediate connection to NatWest Bank to verify the card and amount, so that authorization is given before we complete the order. All orders will be charged as soon as they are placed, even if some or all of the items are not yet available.


Do I have any Legal Protection? - You are protected by the normal laws of England and Wales, in particular The Sale and Supply of Goods Act 1994 (c. 35) and the Consumer Protection Act 1987 (c.43) Consumer Rights Regulations 2013. Full details of your legal rights are available in the UK from your local Citizens’ Advice Bureau or your Local Authority’s Trading Standards Office.


Tax, Pricing and Other Charges

For any customer purchasing adult clothing and souvenirs inside the European Union, VAT is included at the standard UK rate of 20%. Children's clothing is exempt from VAT in the UK and so no tax is added to the price quoted by United Direct.

For any customers purchasing outside the European Union all purchases are exempt of UK VAT.


Please note that our pricing may differ between countries based on several factors. The price shown at the checkout stage will be the price you are charged. If you believe to be an error with the price shown please contact our Customer Services team prior to placing your order.

Your Security

Fanatics has a committed Security Policy. We will retain copies of the information that you provide when you:

  • register on this site
  • order any products from this Site
  • enter into any competitions

Is placing an order secure?

When you order anything from United Direct your order is made over a secure connection. This means that all the personal information you enter will be encrypted so it cannot be read as it travels over the Internet. Encryption is used on all pages within the buying process, making shopping on United Direct as safe as possible.


How can I tell if the United Direct site is a secure one?

You can tell that our site is secure by looking for the following:

  • a picture of a small padlock - this normally appears bottom right of the browser window.
  • in the web page address a secure page will begin with 'https://' denoting that the site is using a secure server for the transaction of data.
  • right click on the page, select 'properties' (or 'view frame info'). The resulting page will have a section called 'Security info for this page' or a button called 'certificates'. These will show:
    • the website owner,
    • the security company (in our case, Verisign)
    • the level of encryption.

If you have any concerns about the security of our site, or if you have any further queries, please contact the Customer Services team.


What else can I do to ensure my details remain safe?

Look for a VeriSign logo and only purchase from merchants you know and trust. In addition to encrypting the data you send over the Internet, the certificate can be used to confirm and authenticate the identity of a web site's owner (in this case, the merchant).

Because digital certificates act as electronic signatures they cannot be forged, you can be certain the connection is secure if either RSA DATA SECURITY INC. or VeriSign Inc has issued the certificate.


How is my data protected?

We implement a number of sophisticated security measures to ensure the safety of the personal information you provide. The information is contained on a secure server, which is accessible only by a limited number of employees who have authorised access rights to such information.

Once you have passed your credit/debit card details to us, they are stored in an encrypted format on our DataCash server located behind a firewall. Access to this machine is strictly controlled, preventing unauthorized access to your personal data.


Who are VeriSign?

VeriSign, Inc. is the leading provider of digital authentication services and products for electronic commerce and other forms of secure communications. For more information on VeriSign please visit their web site at http://www.verisign.com.

If you have any concerns about the security of our site, or if you have any further queries, please contact the Customer Services team.


What is encryption and how does it work?

Put simply, encryption changes data so that it becomes completely unreadable to anyone other than the intended recipient.

Now for the technical bit!

  1. When you establish a secure connection, the downloaded web site sends a digital certificate to your web browser.
  2. When the certificate arrives, it contains a public key, which functions as a one-way encryption device.
  3. The browser then uses this key to scramble your personal data (credit card Information) before sending it over the Internet.

All credit card details are encrypted using VeriSign 40bit SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) Software. Information encrypted with the public key cannot be decrypted without the corresponding private key, which only the merchant has.

Without this exclusive, private key, your personal information cannot be read.


Do you check for fraudulent credit/debit cards?

When we receive your credit/debit card details, an on-line check of your credit/debit card is made. This process ensures the card number you entered actually corresponds to a real card number and is not a bogus card.

The Datacash system also checks various "Hot Card lists" to ensure that no fraudulent use is being made of any credit/debit card. This on-line verification of your details is carried out over a secure line to the bank. credit/debit card data is never sent over the Internet using the validation process.

We also carry out random security checks on cards to ensure we help prevent fraud - please note that we do not intend any discourtesy if your card is chosen for a random check. We reserve the right to withhold any order from despatch in order to process further security checks. This can delay an order for up to 36 hours.


Where can I find my credit/debit card security number?

Your credit/debit card security number is a 3 digit number which can be found on the far right side of the signature strip on the back of your card. This 3 digit number is unique to your card, and gives you extra protection against fraud.

Note: with American Express cards, the card security number is 4 digits long and is printed on the front of the card.


Who are Datacash and what do they do?

Datacash are a leading payment system provider to online businesses. We have chosen them as a partner for our secure server software.

For further information about DataCash please visit their web site at http://www.datacash.com.

Why do you need to collect my personal information?

When you place an order with us we collect certain personal information from you, for example, your name, postal address, phone numbers, e-mail addresses and credit/debit card numbers. We use this information to identify you as a customer, to process your order to deliver products, to process payments and to update our records. We also use this information to generally manage your account with us and to provide you with information about our products.

We will also collect personal information from you at other times, such as if you register to receive email updates from us or to enter a competition (even if you do not place an order with us). This will be used to provide you with information about our products.

Sometimes we may ask you for other details, for example product size and category preferences, age and any special dates (such as birthday and anniversary). These will be used to enhance our service to you. Providing us with this sort of information is entirely voluntary, however we may not be able to process your order if you do not provide us with all the requested information.

Entering a competition
If you enter a competition, information is collected to check the entry. It may also be used to contact you regarding the contest or prize awards. If you have agreed to do so we may also use this personal information to inform you of other products and special offers from Fanatics and/or provide your personal information to other carefully selected companies or organisations in order that they may inform you of their products and services.

We are registered in accordance with United Kingdom Data Protection Legislation and will hold and use your personal data strictly in accordance with UK data protection legislation. Fanatics will retain copies of the information provided when you register on the website, order any products and enter into any competitions on the site. Fanatics implements a number of sophisticated security measures to ensure the safety of any personal information provided.

  • Your information is contained on a secure server database, which is accessible only by a limited number of employees who have authorised access rights to such information.

  • When you are asked to enter any personal details or credit/debit card information you can be assured that the website will be secure. This is easily identifiable by an icon in the bottom of the browser window resembling an unbroken key or a closed lock.
