Cancelling, refunds and returns
We strive to deliver the delicious
chocolates you have bought from us to you in perfect condition and on time. If,
however, your chocolates do not arrive within the time frame you paid for or
are damaged or not as described, we are more than happy to offer a refund or
replacement in accordance with the following paragraphs.
If we miss the agreed delivery date for any goods, you may cancel your order straight away if (a) we have refused to deliver the goods or (b) delivery within the delivery deadline was essential (taking into account all the relevant circumstances) or (c) you told us before the contract was made that delivery by the agreed delivery date was essential. If you do not wish to cancel your order straight away (or do not have the right to do so in the circumstances set out above), you can give us a new deadline for delivery, which must be reasonable, and you can cancel your order if we do not meet this deadline. If you do choose to cancel your order for late delivery in the circumstances set out in this paragraph:
• you can do so for
just some of the goods or all of them, unless splitting them up would
significantly reduce their value;
• if any of the goods have been delivered to you, you will have to return them to us and we will pay the reasonable costs of this; and
• after you cancel your order we will refund any sums you have paid to us for the cancelled goods and their delivery.
If you are a consumer and have purchased any of our other products, you have a right to cancel the contract up to the end of the day which is 14 calendar days after the day on which you receive the goods in accordance with the following provisions. This means that if you change your mind during this time or decide for any other reason that you do not want to receive or keep the goods, you can notify us of your decision to cancel the contract and receive a refund.
You must return the goods to us without delay and in any event not later than 14 calendar days after the day on which you let us know that you wish to cancel the contract. Please return the goods to:
51 Lobden Crescent
The easiest way to cancel a contract is to send an e-mail to email@example.com. Your cancellation is effective from the date you send us the email.
We will process your refund as soon as possible and in any case within 14 calendar days after the day on which we receive the goods back, or if earlier, within 14 calendar days after the day on which you provide evidence of having sent the goods back. If you have not received the goods from us before cancelling the contract, we will make any refunds due to you within 14 days after you inform us of your decision to cancel the contract.
We will refund the price of the products in full, plus any applicable delivery charges you paid to the credit card, debit card or PayPal account that you made payment with (although in relation to delivery charges, the maximum refund will be the costs of delivery by the least expensive delivery method we offer, provided this is a common and generally accepted method of delivery). Please note that 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 in a way which goes beyond what is necessary to establish the nature, characteristics and functioning of the goods.
You will be responsible for the cost of returning the products to us, unless the products are damaged, not as described or there is a delay in delivery, in which case we will reimburse you for any reasonable costs you incur in returning the products to us.
