We must receive payment of the whole of the price for the goods that you order before your order can be accepted. Payment of the price for the goods represents an offer on your part to purchase the goods, which will be accepted by us only when the goods are dispatched. Only at this point is a legally binding contract created between us.
6. Acknowledgement of your order
To enable us to process your order, you will need to provide us with your e-mail address. We will notify you by e-mail as soon as possible to confirm receipt of your order and to confirm details. For the avoidance of doubt, this correspondence does not constitute a contract between us.

8. Accuracy of content
We have taken care in the preparation of the content of this website, in particular to ensure that prices quoted are correct at the time of publishing and that all goods have been described accurately. However, orders will only be processed if there are no material errors in the description of the goods or their prices as advertised on this website. Any weights, dimensions and capacities given about the goods are approximate only.
9. Damage to your computer
We try to ensure that this website is free from viruses or defects. However, we cannot guarantee that your use of this website or any websites accessible through it will not cause damage to your computer. It is your responsibility to ensure that the right equipment is available to use the website. Except in the case of negligence on our part, we will not be liable to any person for any loss or damage which may arise to computer equipment as a result of using this website.
All orders are subject to acceptance and availability. If the goods you have ordered are not available from stock, we will contact you by e-mail or phone (if you have given us details). You will have the option either to wait until the item is available from stock or to cancel your order.
11. Ordering errors
You are able to correct errors on your order up to the point on which you click on “submit” during the ordering process.
The prices payable for goods that you order are as set out on our website. All prices are inclusive of VAT at the current rates and are correct at the time of entering information.
Where it is not possible to accept your order to buy goods of the specification and description at the price indicated, we will advise you by email, and offer to sell you the goods of the specification and description at the price stated in the email and will state in the email the period for which the offer or the price remains valid.
13. Payment terms
We will take payment upon receipt of your order from your credit or debit card. We accept no liability if a delivery is delayed because you did not give us the correct payment details. If it is not possible to obtain full payment for the goods from you, then we can refuse to process your order and/or suspend any further deliveries to you. This does not affect any other rights we may have.
14. Nutrition and Dietary Information
14.1 Although not all products contain nut, dairy and gluten, all products we sell may have been made in the same location as nut, dairy and gluten products. Therefore unfortunately we cannot guarantee that any products we sell are free of allergens.
14.2 We display nutritional information and allergen information on our website against each product sold. This data is taken from information provided by our suppliers. We do not guarantee the information provided or assume any liabilities. We encourage customers to check the nutritional information on each products packaging before consumption.
15.1 Our delivery charges are set out on the delivery page of our website.
15.2 You will be required to pay extra for delivery and it might not be possible for us to deliver to some locations.
15.3 Please note that we are only able to deliver to addresses within the United Kingdom.
15.4 Delivery dates on our website are estimates only and we cannot guarantee delivery on these dates.
15.5 We will deliver the goods to the address you specify for delivery in your order. It is important that this address is accurate. Please be precise about where you would like the goods left if you are out when we deliver. We cannot accept any liability for any loss or damage to the goods once they have been delivered in accordance with your delivery instructions (unless this is caused by our negligence). We will aim to deliver the goods by the date quoted for delivery but delivery times are not guaranteed and therefore time is not of the essence. In any event, we will aim to deliver your goods within 30 days from the day after the day we received your order. If delivery is delayed beyond this time, we will contact you and either agree a mutually acceptable alternative date, or offer you a full refund.
15.6 Should you fail to collect a parcel or rearrange delivery after a failed delivery and the parcel is returned to us, then you will incurr a further postage charge to resend the order.
15.7 We reserve the right to cancel your account if in our opinion the postal service to your address is too unreliable.
15.8 You will become the owner of the goods you have ordered when they have been delivered to you. Once goods have been delivered to you they will be held at your own risk and we will not be liable for their loss or destruction.
15.9 To protect your order, on very hot days we reserve the right to delay dispatch until the temperature has cooled.
15.10 Some deliveries, particularly (but not exclusively) those described as ‘letterbox’ are made in packages that will fit through a standard sized letterbox. Chocolate can be harmful to pets, particularly dogs. You are responsible for ensuring that deliveries are kept away from animals. We are not liable for any damage to the order or injury to pets caused by the delivery.
16. Risk and ownership
Risk of damage to or loss of the goods passes to you at the time of delivery to you. If you choose to use your own courier then the risk passes to you as soon as the goods are handed to your courier. You will only own the goods once they have been successfully delivered.
17. Cancellation rights
17.1 Under The Consumer Contracts (Information, Cancellation and Additional Charges) Regulations 2013 SI 2013/3134 you have the legal right to cancel your order up to 14 calendar days after the day on which you receive your goods (with the exception of goods mentioned in 13.3 below). You do not need to give us any reason for cancelling your contract nor will you have to pay any penalty.
17.2 Should you wish to cancel your order, you can notify us by emailing us at email@example.com
17.3 You cannot cancel your contract if the goods you have ordered are made to your specifications or are clearly personalised.
17.4 If you have received the goods before you cancel your contract then you must send the goods back to our contact address at your own cost and risk. If you cancel your contract but we have already processed the goods for delivery, you should not unpack the goods when they are received by you and you must send the goods back to us at our contact address at your own cost and risk as soon as possible.
17.5 Once you have notified us that you are cancelling your contract, and we have either received the goods back or, if earlier, received evidence that you have sent the goods back, we will refund any sum debited by us from your credit or debit card within 14 calendar days.
17.6 We may make a deduction from your refund for any loss in the value of the goods supplied if the loss is the result of unnecessary handling by you.
