2. Our products
The images of the products on our website are for illustrative purposes only. Although we have made every effort to display the colours accurately, we cannot guarantee that a device’s display of the colours accurately reflects the colour of the products. Your product may vary slightly from those images.
The packaging of the product may vary from that shown on images on our website.
3. Our contract with you
Our shopping pages will guide you through the steps you need to take to place an order with us. Our order process allows you to check and amend any errors before submitting your order to us. Please take the time to read and check your order at each page of the order process.
After you place an order, you will receive an e-mail from us acknowledging that we have received your order. However, please note that this does not mean that your order has been accepted. Our acceptance of your order will take place when we email you to accept it, at which point a contract will come into existence between you and us.
We will confirm our acceptance to you by sending you an e-mail that confirms that the products have been dispatched (shipping confirmation). The contract between us will only be formed when we send you the shipping confirmation. We will assign an order number to your order and tell you what it is when we accept your order. It will help us if you can tell us the order number whenever you contact us about your order.
If we are unable to accept your order because we are unable to supply you with a product we will inform you of this by e-mail and we will not process your order. This might be because the product is out of stock, or no longer available, or because of unexpected limits on our resources which we could not reasonably plan for, or because we have identified an error in the price or description of the product. If you have already paid for the product, we will refund you the full amount including any delivery costs charged as soon as possible.
If we are unable to fulfil your monthly candle subscription order we will inform you of this by e-mail and provide that months subscription as soon as stock is available. This might be because the product is out of stock, or no longer available, or because of unexpected limits on our resources which we could not reasonably plan for.
Monthly candle subscriptions will be shipped out by the end of each month. For on-going subscriptions, payment will be taken on the date of original purchase each month. You can cancel your subscription at any time by emailing us at the following email address email@example.com. If you do decide to cancel your subscription, please contact us before payment is due or you will still be charged.
4. Your rights to make changes
If you wish to make a change to the product you have ordered please contact us. We will let you know if the change is possible. If it is possible we will let you know about any changes to the price of the product, the timing of supply or anything else which would be necessary as a result of your requested change and ask you to confirm whether you wish to go ahead with the change.
5. Changes to these terms
We amend these terms and conditions from time to time. Every time you order products from us, the terms and conditions in force at the time of your order will apply to the contract between you and us.
We may revise these terms and conditions as they apply to your order from time to time to reflect changes in relevant laws and regulatory requirements. In addition, we may make changes to the product, but if we do so we will notify you and you may then contact us to end the contract and receive a full refund before the changes take effect
If we have to revise these terms and conditions as they apply to your order, we will contact you to give you reasonable advance notice of the changes and let you know how to cancel the contract if you are not happy with the changes. You may cancel either in respect of all the affected products or just the products you have yet to receive. If you opt to cancel, you will have to return (at our cost) any relevant products you have already received and we will arrange a full refund of the price you have paid, including any delivery charges.
6. Price and payment
The price of the products will be as quoted on our website at the time you submit your order. We take all reasonable care to ensure that the price of products advised to you is correct.
Prices for our products may change from time to time, but changes will not affect any order you have already placed.
Our website contains a large number of products. It is always possible that, despite our reasonable efforts, some of the products on our website may be incorrectly priced. If we discover an error in the price of the products you have ordered we will contact you to inform you of this error and we will give you the option of continuing to purchase the product at the correct price or cancelling your order. 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. If we mistakenly accept and process your order where a pricing error is obvious and unmistakable and could reasonably have been recognised by you as a mis-pricing, we may cancel supply of the product and refund you any sums you have paid.
The price of a product does not include delivery charges. Our delivery charges are as advised to you during the check-out process, before you confirm your order.
You can only pay for our products using one of the payment methods on our website.
Payment for the products and all applicable delivery charges is in advance.
The costs of delivery will be as displayed to you on our website.
During the order process we will let you know when we will provide the products to you. We aim to deliver the products to you as soon as reasonably possible; we will contact you with an estimated delivery date which will be within 30 days after the date of the dispatch confirmation (the date on which we e-mail you to confirm our acceptance of your order).
Occasionally our delivery to you may be affected by an event outside our control. We will not be liable or responsible for any failure to perform, or delay in performance of, any of our obligations under a contract that is caused by an event outside our control. If our supply of the products is delayed by an event outside our control then we will contact you as soon as possible to let you know and we will take steps to minimise the effect of the delay, and our obligations under a contract will be suspended and the time for performance of our obligations will be extended for the duration of the event outside our control.
Where the event outside our control affects our delivery of products to you, we will arrange a new delivery date with you after the event outside our control is over. Provided we do this we will not be liable for delays caused by the event, but if there is a risk of substantial delay you may contact us to end the contract and receive a refund for any products you have paid for but not received, including any delivery charges.
If no one is available at your address to take delivery and the products cannot be posted through your letterbox, we will leave you a note informing you of how to rearrange delivery or collect the products from a local depot. If, after a failed delivery to you, you do not re-arrange delivery or collect them from a delivery depot we will contact you for further instructions and may charge you for any further delivery costs. If, despite our reasonable efforts, we are unable to contact you or re-arrange delivery or collection we may end the contract.
We may need certain information from you so that we can supply the products to you. If you do not give us this information within a reasonable time of us asking for it, or if you give us incomplete or incorrect information, we may either end the contract or make an additional charge of a reasonable sum to compensate us for any extra work that is required as a result. We will not be responsible for supplying the products late or not supplying any part of them if this is caused by you not giving us the information we need within a reasonable time of us asking for it.
We may have to suspend the supply of a product to:
Deal with technical problems;
Update the product to reflect changes in relevant laws and regulatory requirements;
Make changes to the product as requested by you or notified by us to you (see clause 4 and clause 5).
We will contact you in advance to tell you we will be suspending supply of the product, unless the problem is urgent or an emergency. If we have to suspend the product you may contact us to end the contract, and we will refund any sums you have paid in advance for the product but not received, including any delivery charges.
Delivery of an order shall be completed when we deliver the products to the address you gave us and the products will be your responsibility from that time.
