3. Our contract with you
3.1 How we will accept your order. Our acceptance of your order will take place when we email you to accept it, at which point a contract will come into existence between you and us.
3.2 If we cannot accept your order. If we are unable to accept your order, we will inform you of this and will not charge you for the goods. This might be because the goods are out of stock, because of unexpected limits on our resources which we could not reasonably plan for, because we have identified an error in the price or description of the goods or for some other reason outside of our control.
3.3 Your order number. We will assign an order number to your order and tell you what it is when we accept your order. It will help us if you can tell us the order number whenever you contact us about your order.
3.4 We only sell to the UK. Our website is solely for the promotion of our goods in the UK. Unfortunately, we do not deliver to addresses outside the UK.
4. Our goods
4.1 Goods may vary slightly from their pictures. The images of the goods on our website are for illustrative purposes only. Although we have made every effort to display the goods accurately, we cannot guarantee that a device's display accurately reflects them. Your goods may vary slightly from those images.
4.2 Goods packaging may vary. The packaging of the goods may vary from that shown in images on our website.
5. Your rights to make changes
If you wish to make a change to the goods you have ordered please contact us. We will let you know if the change is possible. If it is possible we will let you know about any changes to the price of the goods, the timing of supply or anything else which would be necessary as a result of your requested change and ask you to confirm whether you wish to go ahead with the change. If we cannot make the change or the consequences of making the change are unacceptable to you, you may want to end the contract (see clause 8 - Your rights to end the contract).
6. Our rights to make changes
6.1 We may change the goods to reflect changes in relevant laws and regulatory requirements or to implement minor adjustments or improvements, for example to recipes or packaging. These changes will not affect your use of the goods.
7. Providing the goods
7.1 Delivery costs. The costs of delivery will be as displayed to you on our website.
7.2 When we will provide the goods. We will either let you know during the order process when we will provide the goods to you or, if that is not possible, we will contact you with an estimated delivery date which will be within 30 days of the day on which we accept your order.
7.3 We are not responsible for delays outside our control. If our supply of the goods is delayed by an event outside our control then we will contact you as soon as possible to let you know and we will take steps to minimise the effect of the delay. Provided we do this we will not be liable for delays caused by the event, but if there is a risk of substantial delay you may contact us to end the contract and receive a refund for any goods you have paid for but not received.
7.4 If you are not at home when the goods are delivered. If no one is available at your address to take delivery and the goods cannot be posted through your letterbox, the courier will leave you a note informing you of how to rearrange delivery or collect the goods from a local depot.
7.5 If you do not re-arrange delivery. If, after a failed delivery to you, you do not re-arrange delivery or collect them from a delivery depot we will contact you for further instructions and may charge you for storage costs and any further delivery costs. If, despite our reasonable efforts, we are unable to contact you or re-arrange delivery we may end the contract and clause 10.2 will apply.
7.6 When you become responsible for the goods. Goods will be your responsibility from the time we deliver the goods to the address you gave us.
7.7 When you own goods. You own the goods once we have received payment in full.
7.8 What will happen if you do not give required information to us. We may need certain information from you so that we can supply the goods to you, for example, where different options are available for a particular product, we may need to confirm your selection. If this is the case then we will contact you to ask for this information. If you do not give us this information within a reasonable time of us asking for it, or if you give us incomplete information, we may end the contract and clause 10.2 will apply. We will not be responsible for supplying the goods late or not supplying any part of them if this is caused by you not giving us the information we need within a reasonable time of us asking for it.
7.9 Reasons we may suspend the supply of goods to you. We may have to suspend the supply of any goods to: (a) deal with technical problems; (b) update the goods to reflect changes in relevant laws and regulatory requirements; or (c) make changes to the goods as requested by you or notified by us to you (see clause 6).
7.10 Your rights if we suspend the supply of goods. We will contact you in advance to tell you we will be suspending supply of the goods, unless the problem is urgent or an emergency. You may contact us to end the contract for any goods if we suspend it, or tell you we are going to suspend it, in each case for a period of more than 14 days and we will refund any sums you have paid in advance for any goods you have not received.
8. Your rights to end the contract
8.1 You can always end your contract with us. Your rights when you end the contract will depend on what you have bought, whether there is anything wrong with it, how we are performing and when you decide to end the contract: (a) If what you have bought is faulty or misdescribed you may have a legal right to end the contract (or to get the goods repaired or replaced or to get some or all of your money back) - see clause 11; (b) If you want to end the contract because of something we have done or have told you we are going to do - see clause 8.2; (c) If you have just changed your mind about the goods - see clause 8.3. You may be able to get a refund if you are within the cooling-off period, but this may be subject to deductions and you will have to pay the costs of return of any goods.
8.2 Ending the contract because of something we have done or are going to do. If you are ending a contract for a reason set out at (a) to (e) below the contract will end immediately and we will refund you in full for any goods which have not been provided and you may also be entitled to compensation. The reasons are: (a) we have told you about an upcoming change to the goods or these terms which you do not agree to (see clause 7); (b) we have told you about an error in the price or description of the goods you have ordered and you do not wish to proceed; (c) there is a risk that supply of the goods may be significantly delayed because of events outside our control; (d) we have suspended supply of the goods for technical reasons, or notify you we are going to suspend them for technical reasons, in each case for a period of more than 14 days; or (e) you have a legal right to end the contract because of something we have done wrong.
8.3 Exercising your right to change your mind (Consumer Contracts Regulations 2013). For most goods bought online you have a legal right to change your mind within 14 days and receive a refund. These rights, under the Consumer Contracts Regulations 2013, are explained in more detail in these terms.
8.4 Our goodwill guarantee. Please note, these terms reflect the goodwill guarantee we offer to our UK customers, which is more generous than your legal rights under the Consumer Contracts Regulations in the ways set out below. This goodwill guarantee does not affect your legal rights in relation to faulty or misdescribed goods (see clause 11.2):
|Right under the Consumer Contracts Regulations 2013||How our goodwill guarantee is more generous|
|14 day period to change your mind.||30 day period to change your mind.|
|Consumer to pay costs of return.||We pay the costs of return.|
8.5 When you don't have the right to change your mind. You do not have a right to change your mind in respect of goods sealed for health protection or hygiene purposes, once these have been unsealed after you receive them.
8.6 How long do I have to change my mind? You have 30 days after the day you (or someone you nominate) receives the goods, unless your goods are split into several deliveries over different days, in which case you have until 30 days after the day you (or someone you nominate) receives the last delivery to change your mind about the goods.
9. How to end the contract with us (including if you have changed your mind)
9.1 Tell us you want to end the contract. To end the contract with us, please let us know by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please provide your name, home address, details of the order and, where available, your phone number and email address.
9.2 Returning goods after ending the contract. If you end the contract for any reason after goods have been dispatched to you or you have received them, you must return them to us. You must either post them back to us or (if they are not suitable for posting) allow us to collect them from you. Please email us at email@example.com for a return label or to arrange collection. If you are exercising your right to change your mind you must send off the goods within 14 days of telling us you wish to end the contract.
9.3 When we will pay the costs of return. We will pay the costs of return:
(a) if the goods are faulty or misdescribed;
(b) if you are ending the contract because we have told you of an upcoming change to the goods or these terms, an error in pricing or description, a delay in delivery due to events outside our control or because you have a legal right to do so as a result of something we have done wrong; or (c) if you are exercising your right to change your mind. In all other circumstances you must pay the costs of return.
9.4 What we charge for collection. If you are responsible for the costs of return and we are collecting the goods from you, we will charge you the direct cost to us of collection. The costs of collection will be the same as our charges for standard delivery.
9.5 How we will refund you. We will refund you the price you paid for the goods including delivery costs, by the method you used for payment. However, we may make deductions from the price, as described below.
9.6 Deductions from refunds if you are exercising your right to change your mind. If you are exercising your right to change your mind:
(a) We may reduce your refund of the price (excluding delivery costs) to reflect any reduction in the value of the goods, if this has been caused by your handling them in a way that would not be permitted in a shop. If we refund you the price paid before we are able to inspect the goods and later discover you have handled them in an unacceptable way, you must pay us an appropriate amount.
(b) The maximum refund for delivery costs will be the costs of delivery by the least expensive delivery method we offer. For example, if we offer delivery of a product within 3-5 days at one cost but you choose to have the product delivered within 24 hours at a higher cost, then we will only refund what you would have paid for the cheaper delivery option.
9.7 When your refund will be made. We will make any refunds due to you as soon as possible. If you are exercising your right to change your mind then:
(a) If we have not offered to collect the goods, your refund will be made within 14 days from the day on which we receive the goods back from you or, if earlier, within 14 days of the day on which you provide us with evidence that you have sent the goods back to us. For information about how to return goods to us, see clause 9.2.
(b) In all other cases, your refund will be made within 14 days of your telling us you have changed your mind.
10. Our rights to end the contract
10.1 We may end the contract if you break it. We may end the contract for any goods at any time by writing to you if:
(a) you do not make any payment to us when it is due (or any payment you make, or attempt to make, is for whatever reason unsuccessful) and you still do not make payment within 3 days of us reminding you that payment is due;
(b) you do not, within a reasonable time of us asking for it, provide us with information that is necessary for us to provide the goods, for example, where different options are available for a particular product and you fail to confirm your selection; or
(c) you do not, within a reasonable time, allow us to deliver the goods to you.
10.2 You must compensate us if you break the contract. If we end the contract in the situations set out in clause 10.1 we will refund any money you have paid in advance for goods we have not provided but we may deduct or charge you reasonable compensation for the net costs we will incur as a result of your breaking the contract.
10.3 We may withdraw the goods. We may write to you to let you know that we are going to stop providing certain goods. We will let you know in advance of our stopping the supply of any goods and will refund any sums you have paid in advance for goods which will not be provided.
11. If there is a problem with the goods
11.2 Summary of your legal rights. We are under a legal duty to supply goods that are in conformity with this contract. See the box below for a summary of your key legal rights in relation to the goods. Nothing in these terms will affect your legal rights.
Summary of your key legal rights This is a summary of your key legal rights. These are subject to certain exceptions. For detailed information please visit the Citizens Advice website www.adviceguide.org.uk or call 03454 04 05 06. The Consumer Rights Act 2015 says goods must be as described, fit for purpose and of satisfactory quality. During the expected lifespan of your product your legal rights entitle you to the following:
a) Up to 30 days: if your goods are faulty, then you can get an immediate refund.
b) Up to six months: if your goods can't be repaired or replaced, then you're entitled to a full refund, in most cases. See also clause 8.3 .
11.3 Your obligation to return rejected goods. If you wish to exercise your legal rights to reject goods you must either post them back to us or (if they are not suitable for posting) allow us to collect them from you. We will pay the costs of postage or collection. Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org for a return label or to arrange collection.
12. Price and payment
12.1 Where to find the price for the goods. The price of the goods (which includes VAT) will be the price indicated on the order pages when you placed your order. We take all reasonable care to ensure that the price of the goods advised to you is correct. However please see clause 12.3 for what happens if we discover an error in the price of the goods you order.
12.2 We will pass on changes in the rate of VAT. If the rate of VAT changes between your order date and the date we supply the goods, we will adjust the rate of VAT that you pay, unless you have already paid for the goods in full before the change in the rate of VAT takes effect.
12.3 What happens if we got the price wrong. It is always possible that, despite our best efforts, some of the goods we sell may be incorrectly priced. We will normally check prices before accepting your order so that, where the correct price of the goods at your order date is less than our stated price at your order date, we will charge the lower amount. If the correct price of the goods at your order date is higher than the price stated to you, we will contact you for your instructions before we accept your order. If we accept and process your order where a pricing error is obvious and unmistakeable and could reasonably have been recognised by you as a mispricing, we may end the contract, refund you any sums you have paid and require the return of any goods provided to you.
12.4 When you must pay and how you must pay. We accept payment with VISA, MASTERCARD, AMERICAN EXPRESS & MAESTRO. Payment will be taken from your chosen payment method when you place your order. Goods will not be dispatched until they have been paid for.
13. Our responsibility for loss or damage suffered by you
13.1 We are responsible to you for foreseeable loss and damage caused by us. If we fail to comply with these terms, we are responsible for loss or damage you suffer that is a foreseeable result of our breaking this contract or our failing to use reasonable care and skill, but we are not responsible for any loss or damage that is not foreseeable. Loss or damage is foreseeable if either it is obvious that it will happen or if, at the time the contract was made, both we and you knew it might happen, for example, if you discussed it with us during the sales process.
13.2 We do not exclude or limit in any way our liability to you where it would be unlawful to do so. This includes liability for death or personal injury caused by our negligence or the negligence of our employees, agents or subcontractors; for fraud or fraudulent misrepresentation; for breach of your legal rights in relation to the goods as summarised in clause 11.2; and for defective products under the Consumer Protection Act 1987.
13.3 We are not liable for business losses. We only supply the goods for domestic and private use. If you use the goods for any commercial, business or re-sale purpose we will have no liability to you for any loss of profit, loss of business, business interruption, or loss of business opportunity.
15. Other important terms
15.1 We may transfer this Agreement to someone else. We may transfer our rights and obligations under these terms to another organisation. If this happens we will ensure that the transfer will not affect your rights under the contract.
15.2 You need our consent to transfer your rights to someone else (except that you can always transfer our guarantee). You may only transfer your rights or your obligations under these terms to another person if we agree to this in writing. However, you may transfer our guarantee at clause 8.4 to a person who has acquired the goods. We may require the person to whom the guarantee is transferred to provide reasonable evidence that they are now the owner of the relevant item or property before they can rely on the guarantee.
15.3 Nobody else has any rights under this contract (except someone you pass your guarantee on to). This contract is between you and us. No other person shall have any rights to enforce any of its terms, except as explained in clause 15.2 in respect of our guarantee. Neither of us will need to get the agreement of any other person in order to end the contract or make any changes to these terms.
15.4 If a court finds part of this contract illegal, the rest will continue in force. Each of the paragraphs of these terms operates separately. If any court or relevant authority decides that any of them are unlawful, the remaining paragraphs will remain in full force and effect.
15.5 Even if we delay in enforcing this contract, we can still enforce it later. If we do not insist immediately that you do anything you are required to do under these terms, or if we delay in taking steps against you in respect of your breaking this contract, that will not mean that you do not have to do those things and it will not prevent us taking steps against you at a later date.
15.6 Which laws apply to this contract and where you may bring legal proceedings. These terms are governed by English law and you can bring legal proceedings in respect of the goods in the English courts. If you live in Scotland you can bring legal proceedings in respect of the goods in either the Scottish or the English courts. If you live in Northern Ireland you can bring legal proceedings in respect of the goods in either the Northern Irish or the English courts.
