4 HOW THE CONTRACT IS FORMED BETWEEN YOU AND US

Your order constitutes an offer to us to buy a product. All orders are subject to acceptance by us, and we will confirm such acceptance to you by sending you an e-mail that confirms that the product has been dispatched (the Dispatch Confirmation). The contract between us (Contract) will only be formed when we send you the Dispatch Confirmation.

4.2 The Contract will relate only to those products whose dispatch we have confirmed in the Dispatch Confirmation. We will not be obliged to supply any other products which may have been part of your order until the dispatch of such products has been confirmed in a separate Dispatch Confirmation.

5 CONSUMER RIGHTS

5.1 If you are contracting as a consumer, you may cancel a Contract at any time within 7 working days, beginning on the day after you received the products. In this case, you will receive a full refund of the price paid for the products in accordance with our refunds policy (set out in clause 9 below).

5.2 To cancel a Contract, you must inform us in writing (email is fine). You must also return the product(s) to us immediately, in the same condition in which you received them, and at your own cost and risk. You have a legal obligation to take reasonable care of the products while they are in your possession. If you fail to comply with this obligation, we may have a right of action against you for compensation. Unfortunately, we cannot accept returned items that have been opened and or partially or completely used.

5.3 You will not have any right to cancel a Contract for the supply of any of the following products:

  • Goods made to your specification;
  • Perishable goods e.g. fresh produce;

8.3 Prices are liable to change at any time, but changes will not affect orders in respect of which we have already sent you a Dispatch Confirmation.

8.4 Our site contains a large number of Products and it is always possible that, despite our best efforts, some of the Products listed on our site may be incorrectly priced. We will normally verify prices as part of our dispatch procedures so that, where a Product’s correct price is less than our stated price, we will charge the lower amount when dispatching the Product to you.
