If there is anything which you do not understand, or if you wish to obtain further information, please contact our customer services team on 0141 883 7612.
Product images are for illustrative purposes only. Although we have made every effort to display colours accurately, we cannot guarantee that your computer’s display of the colours accurately reflect the colour of the products. Your products may vary slightly from those images.
We make every effort to ensure that the pricing displayed on our website is correct. However, if an error in the pricing of a product is found we reserve the right to either cancel your order or contact you to arrange payment of any extra sum due or refund any over-payment made by you (as applicable). We reserve the right to alter all product pricing without notice.
All prices include VAT (where applicable) at the current rates. We reserve the right to express the price exclusive of VAT, but we shall show VAT separately and include it in the total price.
Where we charge separately for packing, carriage and insurance and other relevant charges, the appropriate rates are set out in our specified pricing structure shown elsewhere on this website.
Placing an Order
You are deemed to place an order with us by ordering via our online checkout process. As part of our checkout process you will be given the opportunity to check your order and to correct any errors. We will send you an order acknowledgement, detailing the products you have ordered.
The contract is subject to your right of cancellation (see below).
Any order placed by you for goods advertised on our website is an offer by you to purchase the goods selected in your order. No contract exists between you and us for the sale of any goods until we have received your order and accepted it (which we may do at our discretion). Our acceptance of an order takes place when we despatch the order to you even if your payment has been processed immediately.
We may refuse, at our discretion, to accept an order:
- where we cannot obtain authorisation for your payment; or
- if there has been a pricing or product description error; or
- if you do not meet any eligibility criteria set out in our terms and conditions; or
- where goods ordered by you are not available; or
- if we do not or can not deliver to your area.Where we do not accept your order but have processed your payment, we will re-credit your account with any amount deducted by us from your debit or credit card as soon as possible, but in any event within 30 days of your order. We will not be obliged to pay any additional amount as compensation for disappointment.You must observe and comply with all applicable regulations and legislation, including obtaining all necessary customs, import or other permits to purchase goods from our site.

Payment can be made by any of the options advertised on our website. Payment shall be due before delivery. If payment fails your order will be cancelled. There will be no delivery until clear funds have been received.
Payment online: Our secure server software encrypts all your payment card details. The process scrambles all the information, allowing no unauthorised third party to intercept the data. Your browser will confirm that you are shopping in a secure environment by showing either a locked padlock icon or an image of a padlock next to the payment details in the relevant area of the website.
To ensure that your credit, debit or charge card is not being used without your consent, we will validate name, address and other personal information supplied by you during the order process against appropriate third party databases.
By accepting these terms and conditions you consent to such checks being made. In performing these checks personal information provided by you may be disclosed to a registered Credit Reference Agency which may keep a record of that information. You can rest assured that this is done only to confirm your identity, that a credit check is not performed and that your credit rating will be unaffected. All information provided by you will be treated securely and strictly in accordance with the Data Protection Act 1998. During security checks we may ask for additional information or documentation to help support the data you supplied.

to provide you with the products that you have purchased from us and any receipts of purchase, including to deliver your products, and to send you order status updates;
to take payments for the products that you have purchased and to give refunds or exchanges;

BASIS FOR USING YOUR INFORMATION
Compliance with legal obligations
As a business there are certain laws we need to comply with. In particular, we will need to process your personal information to verify your identity and for fraud and crime prevention purposes. Failure to provide the requisite personal information on sign-up / as you use
our websites, may mean we cannot provide our products to you, as to allow you to purchase our products may mean we may be in breach of our legal obligations. You will not be able to object to processing or ask for the deletion of your personal information insofar as it falls under this category.
Necessary for the entry into or performance of a contract
When you enter into a transaction with us or one of our brands, a contract between you and the relevant brand will have been entered into. In order for us to fulfil our obligations under such contract (e.g. to allow you to place an order and receive products from us), we will need to collect and process your personal information. Failure to provide the requisite personal information on sign-up to an account or on placing an order and payment information or objecting to this type of processing / exercising your deletion rights will mean we cannot provide our products to you.
Legitimate business interests
provide you with products as requested by you;
carry out research to understand our customers and how they purchase and use our products;
develop and improve our products.
We are required to carry out a balancing test of our legitimate business interests in using your personal data outlined above against your interests and rights under the Data Protection Laws and regulations in the relevant territory. As a result of our balancing test, which is detailed below, we have determined, acting reasonably and considering the circumstances, that we are able to process your personal data in accordance with the Data Protection Laws on the basis that we have a legitimate business interest.
We have a legitimate interest in processing your information as:
Impact of processing
We consider that it is reasonable for us to process your personal data for the purposes of our legitimate interests outlined above as the processing of your personal data does not unreasonably intrude on your privacy.
we both benefit from the effective management of your account(s) (where applicable);
we both benefit from the effective management, operation and administration of our websites;
we both benefit from the provision of products, services and support and from improvements to our services;
we both benefit from updates to our websites;
we will both benefit from the ability to enforce or apply rights under any contract between us;
we are required to ensure the health and safety of our customers and the security of our stored data and have a legitimate interest in ensuring any processes relating to the same are effective and that fraud and other crimes are prevented and detected;
we would be unable to provide our products and services without processing your information; and
we have a legitimate interest in processing your information in connection with any mergers, acquisitions or reorganisation of our business, in which case some of your information may be shared with a prospective buyer or otherwise but only so far as is strictly necessary for the purposes of such sale or administration.
As set out above, we will send you marketing communications where you have not told us that you wish to unsubscribe and where you have purchased similar products and/ or services from the same brand or legal entity (as set out in the table above). You will also receive marketing communications from us where you have signed up, or otherwise consented, to receive marketing messages from a brand or entity within our business.
WHO DO WE SHARE YOUR INFORMATION WITH?
We do not, and will not, sell any of your information to any third party, including your name, address, email address or credit card information.
we will share your information with other members of our business where you have consented for us to do so for the purposes of receiving marketing information;
we will share your information with other members of our business for group analysis and business information purposes, to improve our products and services.
We will also use a number of carefully selected third parties to help us to provide you with products and services e.g. a courier / delivery company. In particular, we may disclose selected information to:
Companies that do things to get your purchases to you, such as payment service providers, warehouses, order packers and delivery companies;
Our trusted service providers, such as website hosts and credit reference agencies;
Law enforcement and fraud prevention agencies if we are compelled to do so by court order;
Companies approved by you, such as social media sites, including companies such as Facebook and Google; and
We will provide third parties with aggregated but anonymised information and analytics about our customers and, before we do so, we will make sure that it does not identify you.
We will only share your information with third party suppliers where it is “anonymised” and is necessary for them to provide us with the services we need.
We may disclose your information to other companies in connection with any merger, acquisition, insolvency situation or otherwise, in which case we will only disclose your information so far as is necessary.
We may also need to disclose personal data to third parties to comply with a legal or regulatory obligation, or if necessary for legal proceedings.
WHAT AUTOMATED DECISIONS DO WE MAKE ABOUT YOU?
We may carry out some profiling of you for the purposes of improving and developing our products and services and to help us to tailor our marketing to you.
The impact of any automated decision is to ensure you experience the best service possible.
We use information that we learn about you such as your gender, preferences, hobbies, interests and purchase history to make sure the marketing you receive from us and the way our websites are displayed to you are appropriate and tailored to you.
WHERE IS YOUR INFORMATION STORED AND HOW LONG DO WE KEEP IT FOR?
Transfers outside of the European Economic Area
The information which we collect about you may be transferred outside the European Economic Area. In the event of such transfer, we will ensure the adequate standard of security is in place for example by incorporating the European Commission approved clauses into our agreements with such third parties to ensure the security of your personal data.

White Label Sourcing Limited (WLS”) both welcomes and recognises the Modern Slavery Act 2015 and the duty it places on organisations to disclose publicly the steps they are taking to prevent modern slavery within their business operations and supply chains. WLS has a zero-tolerance approach to modern slavery and is committed to improve its practices by acting ethically and with integrity to ensure that modern slavery and human trafficking does not exist anywhere within the organisation or is in anyway associated with the business.
WLS is a SME business that supplies bespoke sportswear, workwear and promotional items to customers across the UK. It operates under two principal brands “The White Label Solution” and “VSN Sport”.
Our principal place of business is based in Thornliebank, Glasgow where we employ over a dozen people in a variety of roles – from warehousing to design, and from sales to financial control. Our employees are our biggest asset and it is through them that we endeavour to achieve the aims of our business and to deliver and exceed the high levels of service that our customers have come to expect.
Due Diligence, Risk Assessment and Auditing
WLS considers its position within the apparel sector as low to medium risk in relation to modern slavery. The company recognises that although comprehensive practices are in place to ensure that modern slavery does not exist within direct recruitment and employment, the very nature of the business is complex when considering the use of independent factories and an extended supply chain. WLS insists that all companies associated with its business adhere to section 54 of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 or, if because of size constraints they are unable to do so specifically, that they abide by its principles and policies. Accordingly WLS expects its supply chain partners to ensure that modern slavery also does not exist within their own organisation and supply chain. Where identified issues arise and are not resolved to our satisfaction, we review the on-going nature of the relationship with that relevant organisation having set goals for improvement.
Our Policies and Procedures
WLS adopt many procedures that assist with our management of potential modern slavery and human trafficking issues, details of which can be found within our Employee Handbook. These procedures are located within sections covering pre-employment checks, public interest disclosure (whistle-blowing) and Corporate Social Responsibility Statement.
In order to address modern slavery directly, WLS is implementing a dedicated Modern Slavery Policy Statement that sets out the company’s position in relation to modern slavery. The policy is designed to set out the requirements the company has on entering into contractual relationships with others and ensures that its employees are aware of their responsibilities in working to ensure modern slavery does not exist anywhere within the company.
WLS is committed to training its employees to recognise potential situations of modern slavery and procedures to report their concerns. Training is provided at induction and refresher training via seminars and departmental meetings.
WLS is committed to ensure modern slavery does not exist within its organisation by improving its current practices, adapting existing procedures, creating new policy and continuing to educate its employees. The Board of Directors have set targets for the forthcoming year which include the following;
- To formulate and issue company-wide a dedicated ‘Modern Slavery and Human Trafficking’ policy, this to be included within the Employee Handbook.
- To adapt and improve existing key policies and procedures as necessary to address modern slavery issues.
- To provide refresher training for our employees on identifying any potential unlawful or unethical conduct within our operations and supply chain and how to report their concerns.
- To ensure that all applicable sub-contractors have a signed statement and policy to abide by the Modern Slavery Act or for smaller organisations to agree to comply with the policy and procedures of WLS.
- To audit our policies and procedures to ensure effectiveness and best practice in addressing risk of modern slavery within our operations.
This statement is made in accordance with section 54(1) of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 and constitutes WLS’s modern slavery and human trafficking statement for the financial year ending 31 December 2019.
