We are actively working to increase the accessibility and usability of our website and in doing so adhere to many of the available standards and guidelines.

This website endeavours to conform to level Double-A of the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.0.

These guidelines explain how to make web content more accessible for people with disabilities. Conformance with these guidelines will help make the web more user friendly for all people.

This site has been built using code compliant with W3C standards for HTML and CSS. The site displays correctly in current browsers and using standards compliant HTML/CSS code means any future browsers will also display it correctly.

Whilst we strive to adhere to the accepted guidelines and standards for accessibility and usability, it is not always possible to do so in all areas of the website.

We are continually seeking out solutions that will bring all areas of the site up to the same level of overall web accessibility. In the meantime should you experience any difficulty in accessing the Bearwithus.uk website, please don’t hesitate to contact us.

Updated hourly.

We provide a currency conversion tool solely for information purposes, just to make your life a little bit easier…it’s what we do!

The exchange rates we use are updated automatically on an hourly basis from a third party Finance API (application programming interface). We have no control over these rates and do not make any adjustments either.

Please bear in mind that the conversion shown is approximate and will not reflect exactly what you will pay in the end, as Paypal will add its own currency conversion fee (typically 2,5%) to the final amount due in your cart. For more information on PayPal conversion rates rates please visit the PayPal help centre.

For the time being we are only accepting payments in Pound Sterling (£).

The current conversion rates we are using are as follows:

GBP/EUR = 1.160
