We will not accept your order until payment for the order has been confirmed.
3.2 If we are unable to accept your order, we will let you know and you will not be charged. Sometimes we cannot accept orders because the product is out of stock, because of unexpected limits on our resources, because we have noticed an error in the price or description of the product or because we are unable to meet a delivery deadline that you have specified.

If the change you have asked for is possible we will let you know about any changes we need to make to the price of the order, the timing of delivery or anything else which is different as a result of the change. We will also check whether you want to go ahead with the order on this basis. If we cannot make the change or you are not happy with the consequences of making the change, you may want to end the contract (see paragraph 7).
6. How we will provide the products
6.1 Our delivery charges are set out in the Site.
6.2 During the order process we will let you know when we will provide the products to you or we will contact you with an estimated delivery date. For deliveries within the UK, our aim is to ensure that orders will be with you within three business days of the day on which we accept your order.
6.3 If our supply of the products to you is delayed by any event that is outside our control then we will let you know as soon as we can but we are not responsible for delays that are outside our control.
6.4 If we miss the delivery deadline then you can treat the contract as at an end if either (a) we have refused to deliver the products; or (b) you told us, before we accepted your order, that delivery before the delivery deadline was essential.
6.5 If you do not wish to treat the contract as terminated, or do not have the right to do so under paragraph 6.4, you can set a new, reasonable deadline for delivery.
6.6 If you do decide to treat the contract as at an end under paragraph 6.4 you can cancel your order for any of the products or reject products that have been delivered. You also have the option of rejecting or cancelling the order for some of the products. When you have let us know we will then refund any sums you have paid to us for the cancelled products (including any delivery charges). If the products have already been delivered to you, you must post them back to us within 30 days or allow us to collect them from you. You must pay the costs of postage or collection. If you are returning an item(s) over £75 you should consider using a delivery tracking service or purchasing insurance.

If you do not then either collect the products from a delivery depot or contact us to re-arrange delivery we will contact you for further instructions and details (including details of any additional delivery costs). If we are unable to contact you or re-arrange delivery or collection we may end the contract and paragraph 9.2 will apply.

Suspending the contract

6.9.1 manage a technical problem or to make minor technical changes; or
6.9.2 make any required updates to the product to reflect changes in relevant laws and regulatory requirements.
6.10 We will contact you to tell you we will be suspending supply of the product. You may contact us to cancel your order if we suspend it, or tell you we are going to suspend it, for a period of more than 30 days. We will refund any sums you have paid in advance for the product.
6.11 If you do not pay us for the products when you are supposed to (see paragraph 11.3) and you still have not paid us within 10 days of us reminding you to do so, we may suspend supply of the products until you have paid us any outstanding amounts. We will let you know if we do suspend the supply of the products.
7. Your rights to end the contract
7.1 Your rights if you decide to end the contract with us will depend on what product you have bought, if there is anything wrong with it, how we are performing our obligations and at what point you decide to end the contract:
7.1.1 if you want to end the contract because of something we have done see paragraph 7.2;
7.1.2 if you have just changed your mind about the product, see paragraph 7.3. You may be able to get a refund;
7.1.3 if what you have bought is faulty or does not match the description provided online you may have a legal right to end the contract, to get the product repaired or replaced, or to get some or all of your money back, see paragraph 10;
7.1.4 in all other cases, see paragraph 7.4.
7.2 Is it something we have done? If you end the contract because of one of the reasons described below, it will end immediately and you will be refunded in full for any products which have not been provided. It is possible that you may also be entitled to compensation. The reasons are:
7.2.1 we have told you about a change to the Supply Terms which you do not agree to;
7.2.2 there was an error in the price or product description on our Site and you do not wish to proceed with your order;
7.2.3 we have let you know that supply of the products may be significantly delayed because of events outside our control;
7.2.4 for technical reasons the supply of the products has been suspended for more than 30 days; or
7.2.5 we have done something which gives you a legal right to end the contract.
7.3 Have you changed your mind? You have 14 days to change your mind about the products beginning after the day you receive the products, unless they are split into several deliveries over different days. In this case you have until 14 days after the day you receive the last delivery to change your mind about the products.
7.4 Are you still allowed to change your mind? You can still end the contract before it is completed (i.e. before delivery) even if we are not at fault and you do not have a right to change your mind. If you want to end a contract before it is completed, just contact us to let us know. The contract will end immediately and we will refund any sums that you have already paid for products that have not been provided. We may deduct from that refund (or, if you have not made an advance payment, charge you) reasonable compensation for the costs we incur as a result of your ending the contract.
8. How to end the contract with us (including if you have changed your mind)
8.1 If you want to end the contract, please let us know by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
8.2 If you end the contract for any reason after products have been dispatched to you or you have received them, you must return them to us. You must either post them back to us at Berkshire Blend, Chaddleworth, Streatley, Reading, Berkshire, RG8 9PR or allow us to collect them from you.

8.3 We will pay the costs of return:
8.3.1 if the products are faulty or do not match the description provided online; or
8.3.2 if you are ending the contract because of one of the reasons listed in the paragraph “Is it something we have done?”
In all other circumstances (including where you are exercising your right to change your mind) you will be required to pay the costs of return or collection. These charges will be the same as our standard delivery charges.
8.4 The price paid for the products including delivery costs, will be refunded to you by the same method that you used to pay. We may make some deductions from the price, as described below.
8.5 If you are exercising your right to change your mind we may reduce your refund of the price (excluding delivery costs) to reflect any reduction in the value of the products where this was caused by your handling them in a way which would not be permitted in a shop.

If we refund you the price paid before we are able to inspect the products and later discover you have handled them in an unacceptable way, you must pay us an appropriate amount.
8.6 We will make any refunds due to you as soon as possible. If you are exercising your right to change your mind then your refund will be made within 14 days from the day on which we receive the product back from you.

We use the information to supply the products to you (e.g your delivery address); to process your payment for the products (e.g. your debit / credit card details); and if you agreed to this when ordering, to give you information about similar products that you might like - you can stop receiving this information at any time by contacting us.
13. Other important terms
13.1 We only supply products for domestic and private use. We are not liable for any business losses. If you use the products for any commercial, business or re-sale purpose we will have no liability to you for any loss of profit, loss of business, business interruption, or loss of business opportunity.

13.5 If we delay in taking steps against you when you break this contract, that will not mean that you do not have to do what we ask in order to remedy your breach and it will not prevent us taking steps against you at a later date.
13.6 These Supply Terms are governed by English law and you can bring legal proceedings in respect of the products in the English courts or in the courts of the EU country in which you live.
