The maximum amount we will refund is 50% of any monies paid. We reserve the right to make discretionary refunds out with this schedule.
Your purchase order cannot be accepted until payment in full for the Products ordered has been received by us at which time a legally binding agreement on the terms set out herein will become effective.
PRICE AND PAYMENT
The price to be paid by you for any Products will be as quoted on our Site except in cases of obvious error. We are under no obligation to provide the Product to you at the incorrect (lower) price, even after we have sent you an invoice, if the pricing error is obvious and unmistakeable and could have reasonably been recognised by you as an incorrect pricing.
Our prices include VAT but exclude delivery costs, which will be added to the total amount due before completion of your order.
Prices are liable to change at any time, but changes will not affect orders in respect of which we have already sent you an invoice.
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 order confirmation procedures, so that where a Product's correct price is less than our stated price, we will charge the lower amount when invoicing you. If a Product's correct price is higher than the price stated on our Site, or we are no longer able to supply a particular Product for some reason, we will contact you by e-mail to advise you and/or to obtain your confirmation that the amended price is acceptable.
Payment for all Products must be by credit or debit card and those accepted by us are those listed on our website on the date when your order is placed. We will not charge your credit or debit card until we send you an invoice.
All credit/debit cardholders are subject to validation checks and authorisation by the card issuer. If the issuer of your payment card refuses or for any reason does not, authorise payment to us, whether in advance of or subsequent to a payment, we will not be liable for any delay or non-delivery of the Products ordered.
AVAILABILITY, DELIVERY AND COLLECTION
The Products ordered by you can only be delivered to the delivery address provided by you to us, or collected by you from either our London or Brighton shops during opening hours. We will notify you when your order will be ready to collect.
If for any reason you find yourself unable to collect your order from the designated shop within the given time slot, we will retain your ordered Products for collection by you for 24 hours, or upon payment of the delivery charge by credit card we may be able to arrange to deliver to you within our delivery time slot and delivery zone during the next 24 hours (subject to delivery availability).
If for any reason no one is present to receive delivery of the Products at the delivery address you have provided to us the courier will leave a card and you should arrange redelivery. Should You fail to collect a parcel or re arrange delivery of your parcel after a failed delivery attempt and the parcel is returned to Us by the post office or courier then You will incur a further postage charge for Us to re send the parcel back to you
In hot or extremely cold weather, We reserve the right to delay Your order until the weather has moderated. In extreme situations this can delay orders for several days.
RISK AND TITLE
The Products will be at your risk from the time you collect the Products from our shop or we deliver them to you.
Ownership of the Products will only pass to you when we receive full payment of all sums due for them, including delivery charges.
In the event that your order is damaged in transit please contact us within 24 hours of receipt. Products received by courier should be checked before being signed for. If the exterior packaging or the product is found to be damaged you must then sign "checked and found to be damaged". If you fail to do this we may not be able to offer a refund or replacement.
In the case of damaged goods you must return, at your own expense, the damaged Products and all packaging for inspection by us. Subject to our report on the claimed damage and to these Terms and Conditions we will refund the price you paid for the returned Products together with the delivery charge and any return postage, or at our option we will provide you with a credit for further products. We will have no liability to you for any indirect loss. Please state clearly your dispatch details in all communications to us.
We will only make a refund to the original credit card or debit card account used by you to make the online purchase. Legal ownership of the goods will immediately revert to us if we refund any such payment to you.
Since taste is a very personal matter and subjective we cannot accept the return of any Products merely because you do not like the taste.
We have made every effort to display as accurately as possible the colours of our products that appear on our Site and also to ensure that the colours on screen are as close as possible to the colours of the actual product. However, the colour of the actual product you see on your screen will depend on your monitor, your screen settings and resolution. Accordingly, we cannot guarantee that your monitor's display of any colour will accurately reflect the colour of the product on delivery and we cannot accept the return of any product because it does not match the colour you were expecting from viewing your screen display.
We will not accept the return of any Products which have been purchased from any outlet other than this online Site.
The provisions of this clause do not affect your statutory rights.
