7.1 We make all reasonable efforts to ensure that all descriptions and graphical representations of Goods available from Us correspond to the actual Goods. Please note, however, the following:
7.1.1 Images of Goods are for illustrative purposes only. There may be slight variations in colour between the image of a product and the actual product sold due to differences in computer displays and lighting conditions;
7.1.2 Images and/or descriptions of packaging are for illustrative purposes only, the actual packaging of Goods may vary.
7.2 Please note that sub-Clause 7.1 does not exclude Our responsibility for mistakes due to negligence on Our part and refers only to minor variations of the correct Goods, not to different Goods altogether. Please refer to Clause 11 if you receive incorrect Goods (i.e. Goods that are not as described).
7.3 All Goods are made in the same environment as nuts so we cannot guarantee they are free from nut traces. Allergen information and ingredient information is available for each product via the ingredients tab on each product page.
7.4 We neither represent nor warrant that Goods will be available.
7.5 We make all reasonable efforts to ensure that all prices shown on Our Site are correct at the time of going online.

8. Orders – How Contracts Are Formed
8.1 Our Site will guide you through the ordering process. Before submitting your Order to Us you will be given the opportunity to review your Order and amend it. Please ensure that you have checked your Order carefully before submitting it.
8.2 No part of Our Site constitutes a contractual offer capable of acceptance. Your Order constitutes a contractual offer that We may, at Our sole discretion, accept. Our acknowledgement of receipt of your Order does not mean that we have accepted it. Our acceptance is indicated by Us sending you a Dispatch Confirmation by email. Only once We have sent you a Dispatch Confirmation will there be a legally binding Contract between Us and you.
8.3 Dispatch Confirmations shall contain the following information:
8.3.1 Confirmation of the Goods ordered including full details of the main characteristics of those Goods;
8.3.2 Fully itemised pricing for the Goods ordered including, where appropriate, taxes, delivery and other additional charges;
8.4 [We will also include a paper copy of the Dispatch Confirmation with your Goods].
8.5 If We, for any reason, do not accept or cannot fulfil your Order, no payment shall be taken under normal circumstances. If We have taken payment any such sums will be refunded to you as soon as possible and in any event within 14 days.
9.1 Payment for Goods and related delivery charges must always be made in advance and you will be prompted to pay during the order process. We accept the following methods of payment on Our Site:
10. Delivery, Risk and Ownership
10.1 All Goods purchased through Our Site will normally be delivered within the times given on the Site during the Order process. During peak periods we have the right to send goods 2 or 3 days earlier to ensure they arrive by the specified date.
10.2 If We are unable to deliver the Goods on the delivery date (if, for example, no one is available at your address to receive the Goods) We will follow any delivery instruction you may have given or attempt to leave your goods in a safe place. If this is not possible, our carrier will leave a note advising of where your goods have been returned to, and how to either arrange re-delivery or collect them.
10.3 In the unlikely event that We fail to deliver the Goods within 30 calendar days of Our dispatch confirmation (unless otherwise agreed as under sub-Clause 10.1), if any of the following apply you may cancel your Order immediately:
10.3.1 We have refused to deliver your Goods; or
10.3.2 In light of all relevant circumstances, delivery within that time period was essential; or
10.3.3 You told Us when ordering the Goods that delivery within that time period was essential.
10.4 If you do not wish to cancel under sub-Clause 10.3 or if none of the specified circumstances apply, you may specify a new (reasonable) delivery date. If We fail to meet the new deadline, you may then cancel your Order.
10.5 You may cancel all or part of your Order under sub-Clauses 10.3 or 10.4 provided that separating the Goods in your Order would not significantly reduce their value. Any sums that you have already paid for cancelled Goods and their delivery will be refunded to you. Please note that if any cancelled Goods are delivered to you, you must return them to Us. We will bear the cost of returning the cancelled Goods.
10.6 Delivery shall be deemed complete once We have delivered the Goods to the address including, where relevant, any alternative address provided in your Order.
10.7 The risk of the Goods shall remain with Us until they come into your physical possession.
10.8 Ownership of the Goods passes to you once we have received payment in full of all sums due (including any applicable delivery charges).
10.9 None of our Products are for resale and the offering for sale of any of our Products is strictly forbidden. We reserve the right to take legal action in respect of any resale or offer for sale.
11. Faulty, Damaged or Incorrect Goods
11.1 By law, We must provide goods that are of satisfactory quality, fit for purpose, as described at the time of purchase, in accordance with any pre-contract information We have provided. If any Goods you have purchased do not comply and, for example, have faults or are damaged when you receive them, or if you receive incorrect Goods, please contact us as soon as reasonably possible to inform Us of the fault, damage or error, and to arrange for a refund, repair or replacement.
11.2 Beginning on the day that you receive the Goods you have a 30 Calendar Day right to reject the Goods and to receive a full refund if they do not conform as stated above. Alternatively, you may request replacement Goods. We will bear any associated costs and will carry out the replacement within a reasonable time and without significant inconvenience to you. In certain circumstances, where a replacement is impossible or otherwise disproportionate, We may instead offer you a full refund. If you request a replacement during the 30 Calendar Day rejection period, that period will be suspended while We carry out the replacement and will resume on the day that you receive the replacement Goods. If less than 7 Calendar Days remain out of the original period, it will be extended to 7 Calendar Days. If, after replacement, the Goods still do not conform (or if We cannot do so as previously described, or have failed to act within a reasonable time or without significant inconvenience to you), you may have the right either to keep the Goods at a reduced price, or to reject them in exchange for a refund. If you exercise the final right to reject the goods more than six months after you have received the Goods (and ownership of them), We may reduce any refund to reflect the use that you have had out of the Goods.
11.3 Please note that you will not be eligible to claim under this Clause 11 if We informed you of the issue with the Goods before your purchase of the them (and it is because of the same issue that you now wish to return them). Please also note that you may not return Goods to Us under this Clause 11 merely because you have changed your mind. If you are a consumer in the European Union you have a legal right to a 14 calendar day cooling off period within which you can return Goods for this reason. Please refer to Clause 12 for more details.
11.4 To return Goods to Us for any reason under this Clause 11, first contact us at email@example.com or call 0333 014 2564. We will be fully responsible for the costs of returning Goods under this Clause 11 and will reimburse you where appropriate.
11.5 Refunds (whether full or partial, including reductions in price) under this Clause 11 will be issued within 14 Calendar Days of the day on which We agree that you are entitled to the refund.
11.6 Any and all refunds issued under this Clause 11 will include all delivery costs paid by you when the Goods were originally purchased.
