Terms and Conditions for Purchase of Products
The images of the Products on our Site are for illustrative purposes only. Although we have made every effort to display the Products accurately the visual appearance of the Products may vary slightly from those images. Because our Products are handmade, all sizes, weights, capacities, dimensions and measurements indicated on our Site may vary. The packaging of the Products may vary from that shown on images on our Site.
Our Site will guide you through the steps you need to take to place an order with us. Our order process allows you to check and amend any errors before submitting your order to us. Please take the time to read and check your order at each page of the order process.
After you place an order, you will receive an e-mail from us acknowledging that we have received your order. However, please note that this does not mean that your order has been accepted. We will confirm our acceptance to you by sending you an e-mail that confirms your order has been accepted. A contract for purchase of the Products between us will only be formed when we send you the email confirmation.
If we are unable to supply you with a Product, for example because that Product is not in stock or no longer available or because we cannot meet your requested delivery timeframe we will inform you of this by e-mail and we will not process your order. If you have already paid for the Products, we will refund you the full amount including any delivery costs charged as soon as possible.
Returns and your Right to Cancel
If you are a consumer you have a legal right to cancel certain contracts for the purchase of goods online, however this right of cancellation does not apply to our Products as they are perishable. As a consumer, you have legal rights in relation to Products that are faulty or not as described. These legal rights are not affected by anything in these Terms. Advice about your legal rights is available from your local Citizens' Advice Bureau or Trading Standards office.
If you find that Products delivered are not those ordered by you, the order is incomplete, or a Product is in a damaged condition when you receive it, please notify us immediately and we will give you instructions as to returning the item or issuing a replacement. You must retain the damaged Products and all packaging for inspection by us. Subject to our review of the defective or damaged Product and to these Terms we will refund the price you paid for the returned Products together with the delivery charge or provide you with a replacement. We cannot accept responsibility for damage caused by you or by a courier/agent engaged by you to collect Products if they are damaged during transit to your home provided that you or your courier/agent has signed a delivery receipt confirming that the goods were in good condition and undamaged at the point of collection. Please note that flavour is often a matter of personal preference and therefore we will not provide a refund because you do not like the taste of a Product.
You should review the FAQs section of our Site for information on how to store our Products, some of which should be stored at an ambient temperature and some of which should be refrigerated. We will not be liable to you in respect of any complaint concerning any Product which is not raised by you within 24 hours of delivery by us or collection by you or on your behalf.
Payment and Pricing
The prices of the Products will be as quoted on our Site at the time you submit your order. We take all reasonable care to ensure that the prices of Products are correct at the time when the relevant information was entered onto the Site. It is always possible that some of the Products on our Site may be incorrectly priced. If we discover an error in the price of the Products you have ordered we will contact you to inform you of this error and we will give you the option of continuing to purchase the Product at the correct price or cancelling your order. We will not process your order until we have your instructions. If we are unable to contact you using the contact details you provided we will treat the order as cancelled and notify you by email. If we mistakenly 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 cancel supply of the Product and refund you any sums you have paid.
You may pay for Products using a debit card or credit card or cash if you collect a Product.
The price of a Product includes VAT (where applicable) at the applicable current rate chargeable in the UK for the time being. However, if the rate of VAT changes between the date of your order and the date of delivery, we will adjust the VAT you pay, unless you have already paid for the Products in full before the change in VAT takes effect.
If you order a non-standard Product (such as a wedding cake with personalised designs to your specification) you will not be able to order or pay through the Site. We require payment of 50% of the price of the Product when you order and the remaining 50% three weeks before the agreed date of delivery.
Delivery, Risk and Title
We deliver in accordance with the information under the Delivery page on our Site. We do not deliver to addresses outside the UK. You may place an order for Products from outside the UK, but this order must be for delivery to an address in the UK.
The Products will be at your risk from the time you collect the Products from us 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.
Liability – Business Customers Only
We only supply the Products for internal use by your business, and you agree not to use the Product for any resale purposes.
Nothing in these Terms limits or excludes our liability for:a) death or personal injury caused by our negligence;
b) fraud or fraudulent misrepresentation; or
c) any other liability which cannot be excluded at law.
Subject to the preceding paragraph our total liability to you in respect of all losses arising under or in connection with the Contract, whether in contract, tort (including negligence), breach of statutory duty, or otherwise, shall in no circumstances exceed the price of the Products.
Except as expressly stated in these Terms, we do not give any representation, warranties or undertakings in relation to the Products. Any representation, condition or warranty which might be implied or incorporated into these Terms by statute, common law or otherwise is excluded to the fullest extent permitted by law. In particular, we will not be responsible for ensuring that the Products are suitable for your purposes.
Liability – Consumers Only
We only supply the Products for domestic and private use. You agree not to use Products for any commercial, business or resale purposes, and we have no liability to you for any loss of profit, loss of business, business interruption, or loss of business opportunity.
Events Outside Our Control
We will not be liable or responsible for any failure to perform, or delay in performance of, any of our obligations under these Terms caused by an event outside of our control, including without limitation strikes, lock-outs or other industrial action by third parties, civil commotion, riot, invasion, terrorist attack or threat of terrorist attack, war (whether declared or not) or threat or preparation for war, fire, explosion, storm, flood, earthquake, subsidence, epidemic or other natural disaster, or failure of public or private telecommunications networks or impossibility of the use of railways, shipping, aircraft, motor transport or other means of public or private transport.
Each of the paragraphs of these Terms operates separately. If any court or relevant authority decides that any of them are unlawful or unenforceable, the remaining paragraphs will remain in full force and effect.
If we fail to insist that you perform any of your obligations under these Terms, or if we do not enforce our rights against you, or if we delay in doing so, that will not mean that we have waived our rights against you and will not mean that you do not have to comply with those obligations. If we do waive a default by you, we will only do so in writing, and that will not mean that we will automatically waive any later default by you.
These Terms are only for the benefit of you and us and no other person can claim a benefit from these Terms by virtue of the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999 or otherwise.
Governing Law and Jurisdiction
If you are a consumer, please note that these Terms, their subject matter and their formation, are governed by English law. You and we both agree that the courts of England and Wales will have exclusive jurisdiction except that if you are a resident of Northern Ireland you may also bring proceedings in Northern Ireland, and if you are resident of Scotland, you may also bring proceedings in Scotland.
If you are a business, these Terms, their subject matter and their formation (and any non-contractual disputes or claims) are governed by English law. We both agree to the exclusive jurisdiction of the courts of England and Wales.
