Settings that enable our products to operate correctly or that maintain your preferences over time may be stored on your device. We also save preferences, such as language, browser and multimedia player settings, so those do not have to be reset each time you return to the site.

When you provide information on our website, we store the data in a cookie to remember the information you have added.
Our website includes social media cookies, including those that enable users who are logged in to the social media service to share content via that service.

You may cancel either in respect of all the affected Product(s) or just the Product(s) you have yet to receive. If you opt to cancel, you will have to return (at our cost) any relevant Product(s) you have already received and we will arrange a full refund of the price you have paid, including any delivery charges.
8. YOUR CONSUMER RIGHT OF RETURN AND REFUND
This clause 8 only applies if you are a consumer.
8.1 If you are a consumer, you have a legal right to cancel a Contract under the Consumer Contracts (Information, Cancellation and Additional Charges) Regulations 2013 during the period set out below in clause 8.3. This means that during the relevant period if you change your mind or decide for any other reason that you do not want to receive or keep the Product(s), you can notify us of your decision to cancel the Contract and receive a refund. Advice about your legal right to cancel the Contract is available from your local Citizens' Advice Bureau or Trading Standards office.
8.2 However, this cancellation right does not apply in the case of:
(a) sealed Product(s) once these Product(s) are unsealed after you receive them;
(b) any Product(s) which become mixed inseparably with other items after their delivery;
(c) contract for the supply of alcoholic Product(s) where price is agreed when the sales contract is concluded, delivery can only take place after 30 days, and the value is dependent on fluctuations in the market which cannot be controlled by us.
(d) health and safety reasons, Products are non-alcoholic, soft drinks or less than 9% alcohol content
8.3 Your legal right to cancel a Contract starts from the date of the Dispatch Confirmation (the date on which we e-mail you to confirm our acceptance of your order), which is when the Contract between us is formed. Your deadline for cancelling the Contract then depends on what you have ordered and how it is delivered, as set out in the table below:
|Your Contract||End of the cancellation period|
Product(s) which are not delivered in instalments on separate days.
|The end date is the end of 14 days after the day on which you receive the Product. Example: if we provide you with aDispatch Confirmation on 1 January and you receive the Product(s) on 10 January you may cancel at any time between 1 January and the end of the day on 24 January.|
Product(s) which are delivered in instalments on separate days.
The end date is 14 days after the day on which you receive the last instalment of the Product(s) or the last of the separate Product(s) ordered.
Example: if we provide you with a Dispatch Confirmation on 1 January and you receive the first instalment of your Product(s) or the first of your separate Product(s) on 10 January and the last instalment or last separate Product(s) on 15 January you may cancel in respect of all instalments and any or all of the separate Product(s) at any time between 1 January and the end of the day on 29 January.
|The regular delivery of a Product(s) over a set period. The end date is 14 days after the day on which you receive the first delivery of the Product(s).||Example: if we provide you with a Dispatch Confirmation on 1 January in respect of Product(s) to be delivered at regular intervals over a year and you receive the first delivery of your Product(s) on 10 January, you may cancel at any time between 1 January and the end of the day on 24 January. 24 January is the last day of the cancellation period in respect of all Product(s) to arrive during the year.|
8.4 To cancel a Contract, you just need to let us know that you have decided to cancel. The easiest way is to email us.
8.5 If you cancel your Contract we will:
(a) refund you the price you paid for the Product(s). However, please note we are permitted by law to reduce your refund to reflect any reduction in the value of the goods, if this has been caused by your handling them in a way which would not be permitted in a shop.
(b) refund any delivery costs you have paid if the goods have not been dispatched, although, as permitted by law, the maximum refund will be the costs of delivery by the least expensive delivery method we offer (provided that this is a common and generally acceptable method). For example, if we offer delivery of a Product(s) within 3-6 days at one cost but you choose to have the Product(s) delivered within 24 hours at a higher cost, then we will only refund what you would have paid for the cheaper delivery option.
(c) make any refunds due to you as soon as possible and in any event within the deadlines indicated below:
(i) if you have received the Product(s) and we have not offered to collect it from you: 14 days after the day on which we receive the Product(s) back from you or, if earlier, the day on which you provide us with evidence that you have sent the Product(s) back to us. For information about how to return the Product(s) to us, see clause 7.8;
(ii) if you have not received the Product(s) or you have received it and we have offered to collect it from you: 14 days after you inform us of your decision to cancel the Contract.
8.6 If you have returned the Product(s) to us under this clause 8 because they are faulty or mis- described, we will refund the price of the Product(s) in full, together with any applicable delivery charges, and any reasonable costs you incur in returning the item to us.
8.7 We will refund you on the credit card, debit card, used by you to pay. If you used vouchers to pay for the Product(s) we may refund you in vouchers.
8.8 If a Product(s) has been delivered to you before you decide to cancel your Contract:
(a) then you must return it to us without undue delay and in any event not later than 14 days after the day on which you let us know that you wish to cancel the Contract. You can send it back to us at Unit 12 Moor Place Farm, Plough Lane, Bramshill, Hampshire RG27 0RF. If we have offered to collect the Product(s) from you as advised to you by us via email or telephone, we will collect the Product(s) from the address to which they were delivered. We will contact you to arrange a suitable time for collection.
(b) unless the Product(s) is faulty or not as described (in this case, see clause 8.6), you will be responsible for the cost of returning the Product(s) to us. If the Product(s) is one which cannot be returned by post, we estimate that if you use the carrier which delivered the Product(s) to you, these costs should not exceed the sums we charged you for delivery. If we have offered to collect the Product(s) from you, we will charge you the direct cost to us of collection. We will advise you by email or telephone of the charges for collection.
(c) we will not refund the cost of the initial delivery charge you may have paid for your order.
8.9 Because you are a consumer, we are under a legal duty to supply Product(s) that are in conformity with this Contract. As a consumer, you have legal rights in relation to Product(s) that are faulty or not as described. These legal rights are not affected by your right of return and refund in this clause 8 or anything else in these Terms. Advice about your legal rights is available from your local Citizens' Advice Bureau or Trading Standards office.
9.1 We will contact you with an estimated delivery date which will be within 30 days of confirmation of order. Occasionally our delivery to you may be affected by an Event Outside Our Control. See clause 16 for our responsibilities when this happens.
9.2 In the event you order Product(s) from us and we have agreed with you by email or telephone of a specific delivery time or date, if you are then not available to accept the Product(s) at the agreed time and date we will not be liable for any re-delivery charges to deliver the Product(s) to you.
9.3 We or our authorised carrier may send you an email or SMS notification to advise you of an estimated delivery time prior to delivery.
9.4 We or our authorised carrier will not be held liable for any loss or damage suffered by you if you give instructions for us to leave your Product(s) outside your house or outside any other address provided by you and the Product(s) get lost or stolen.
9.5 If no one is available at your address to take delivery, our authorised carrier will leave you with a note advising you of where to collect the Product(s).
9.6 Delivery of an Order shall be completed when we or our authorised carrier deliver the Product(s) to the address you gave us or when you collect the Product(s) from the place our authorised carrier has notified you of. From this time the Product(s) will be your responsibility.
9.7 You own the Product(s) once we have received payment in full, including all applicable delivery charges.
This clause 9.7 only applies if you are a consumer.
9.8 If we miss the 30 day delivery deadline for any Product(s) then you may cancel your Order straight away if any of the following apply:
(a) we have refused to deliver the Product(s);
(b) delivery within the delivery deadline was essential (taking into account all the relevant circumstances); or
(c) you told us before we accepted your order that delivery within the delivery deadline was essential.
9.9 If you do not wish to cancel your order straight away, or do not have the right to do so under clause 9.8, you can give us a new deadline for delivery, which must be reasonable, and you can cancel your Order if we do not meet the new deadline.
9.10 If you do choose to cancel your Order for late delivery under clause 9.8 or clause 9.9, you can do so for just some of the Product(s) or all of them, unless splitting them up would significantly reduce their value. If the Product(s) have been delivered to you, you will have to return them to us or allow us to collect them, and we will pay the costs of this. After you cancel your Order we will refund any sums you have paid to us for the cancelled Product(s) and their delivery.
10. INTERNATIONAL DELIVERY
10.1 We currently do not deliver outside of the UK without prior agreement. You may contact us to discuss International Delivery options.

11. PRICE OF PRODUCT(S) AND DELIVERY CHARGES

We will not process your order until we have your instructions. If we are unable to contact you using the contact details you provided during the order process, we will treat the order as cancelled and notify you in writing. Please note that if the pricing error is obvious and unmistakeable and could have reasonably been recognised by you as a mispricing, we do not have to provide the Product(s) to you at the incorrect (lower) price.
11.6 We reserve the right to terminate any special offer or promotion at any time, without notice. All give-away, value-added and promotional items are only available whilst stocks last and carry a value of £0.00.

19.3 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.
19.4 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.
19.5 If you are a consumer, please note that these Terms are governed by English law. This means a Contract for the purchase of Product(s) through our site and any dispute or claim arising out of or in connection with it will be governed by English law. You and we both agree to that the courts of England and Wales will have non-exclusive jurisdiction.
19.6 If you are a business, a Contract and any dispute or claim arising out of or in connection with it or its subject matter or formation (including non-contractual disputes or claims) shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the law of England and Wales.
19.7 If you are a business, we both irrevocably agree that the courts of England and Wales shall have exclusive jurisdiction to settle any dispute or claim arising out of or in connection with a Contract or its subject matter or formation (including non-contractual disputes or claims).
