2.3 How we may contact you. If we have to contact you we will do so by telephone or by writing to you at the email address or postal address you provided to us in your order. When we use the words "writing" or "written" in these terms, this includes emails.
3. OUR CONTRACT WITH YOU
3.1 How we will accept your order. When you place an order, you will receive an on-screen confirmation of your order details. However our acceptance of your order will only take place when we email you to accept it, at which point a legally binding contract will come into existence between you and us.
3.2 If we cannot accept your order. If we are unable to accept all or part of your order, we will inform you of this and will not charge you for the relevant product(s).
3.3 Your order number. We will assign an order number to your order and tell you what it is when we email you to accept your order. It will help us if you can tell us the order number whenever you contact us about your order.
3.4 We may offer a subscription service. By signing-up for a services subscription you agree to pay us until you or we end the subscription. For the duration of your subscription, this commits you to paying for each such subscription service and you authorise us to instruct your card issuer to debit the corresponding sum automatically at the frequency determined by you when placing your first order. If the subscription service allows you to select different products for each delivery, you acknowledge that if you do not confirm you own selection by the relevant cut-off date/time specified on our website, we will select the products for you.
3.5 We only sell to the UK. Our website is solely for the promotion of our products in the UK. Unfortunately, we do not deliver to addresses outside of mainland UK and cannot currently deliver to Northern Ireland, Republic of Ireland, Scottish Highlands and Scotland north of Glasgow, Isle of Wight, Isle of Man and the Channel Isles.
4. DISCOUNTS AND PROMOTIONS. Discount codes may be sent via email or in the post to you if you opt-in to receive correspondence from us. You may be given a discount code to take advantage of any promotion we offer. Please check any applicable expiry dates which may be stated on the promotional material. If an expiry date applies, unless a time is stated, the promotion will expire at midnight on the date stated. Discount codes will not be valid for use in conjunction with other offers, promotions or discounted items. If there is a minimum spend for the promotion to apply, the minimum spend amount must be in addition to any promotions, meal deals, multi-buys or other discounted items. Any terms and conditions contained in the promotional material will apply in addition to these terms, and will take precedence over these terms in the event of any conflict. If a discount code takes the order below the minimum order value threshold, you will need to add additional products to your basket to reach this threshold. The same applies to any free delivery threshold. If the discount code or promotion has not been successfully applied and the order completed we are not obliged to re-issue a discount code or apply the discount retrospectively.
5. GIFT CARDS. Gift cards are redeemable within the relevant expiry date for orders placed. Gift Cards cannot be exchanged or refunded for cash. Gift Cards can be used towards purchases at a higher price than its face value upon payment of the difference. If a Gift Card is used for a transaction at a lower value than the face value of the Gift Card, then the Gift Card will be updated with the revised balance and can be used towards future purchases. In the event that you are issued with a refund in relation to any product(s) purchased using a Gift Card, the refund amount will be added to the balance of the Gift Card used to complete the purchase. We have no liability for replacement or refund if a Gift Card is lost, stolen, or used by an unauthorised third party, whether they have been redeemed or not.

These changes will not affect your use or enjoyment of the products. In addition, we may make more significant changes to the products, for example a significant change to a recipe or if an ingredient is unavailable and needs to be substituted. In the event that we make a significant change after you have placed your order, we will notify you as soon as reasonably practicable, and you may contact us in writing to cancel and receive a refund.
8. SUBSTITUTIONS. In the event that we are unable to supply a product as part of your order for any reason, we may contact you and offer you a substitute product.

13. PRICE AND PAYMENT
13.1 What happens if we got the price wrong. It is always possible that, despite our best efforts, some of the products we sell may be incorrectly priced. We will normally check prices before accepting your order so that, where the product's correct price at your order date is less than our stated price at your order date, we will charge the lower amount. If the product's correct price at your order date is higher than the price stated to you, we will contact you for your instructions before we accept your order. If we 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 end the contract, refund you any sums you have paid and require the return of any goods provided to you.
13.2 When you must pay and how you must pay. We accept payment with Amex, Apple Pay, Google Pay, Mastercard, Visa, Paypal, Shopify Pay.

13.3 Subscription service payments. If you are using a subscription service, payments will be taken after the relevant cut-off date/time specified on our website (which may change from time to time), depending on the delivery date you have booked. We may change our prices at any time, and if you are using a subscription service we will give you notice of this at least 14 days before any price change takes effect. Payments taken after the notice period will be at the new price. If you do not accept the new price, you can cancel your subscription in accordance with clause 9.2 above.
14. OUR RESPONSIBILITY FOR LOSS OR DAMAGE SUFFERED BY YOU
14.1 We do not exclude or limit in any way our liability to you where it would be unlawful to do so. This includes liability for death or personal injury caused by our negligence or the negligence of our employees, agents or subcontractors; for fraud or fraudulent misrepresentation; for breach of your legal rights in relation to the products including the right to receive products which are: as described and match information we provided to you, of satisfactory quality, fit for any particular purpose made known to us, and supplied with reasonable skill and care; and any other implied rights under the Consumer Rights Act 2015.
14.2 What we are responsible for. Subject to clause 14.1 above, if we fail to comply with these terms, we are responsible for loss or damage you suffer which is:-
- up to the maximum amount of the purchase price of the relevant product(s); and
- a foreseeable result of our breaking this contract or our failing to use reasonable care and skill (but we are not responsible for any loss or damage that is not foreseeable). Loss or damage is foreseeable if either it is obvious that it will happen or if, at the time the contract was made, both we and you knew it might happen, for example, if you discussed it with us during the sales process.
14.3 We are not liable for business losses. We only supply the products for domestic and private use. You are not permitted to use our products commercially or re-sell our products under any circumstances, without our prior written consent.

16.2 If a court finds part of this contract illegal, the rest will continue in force. Each of the paragraphs of these terms operates separately. If any court or relevant authority decides that any of them are unlawful, the remaining paragraphs will remain in full force and effect.
16.3 Even if we delay in enforcing this contract, we can still enforce it later. If we do not insist immediately that you do anything you are required to do under these terms, or if we delay in taking steps against you in respect of your breaking this contract, it will not prevent us taking steps against you at a later date.
