  1. Our products
    • Products may vary slightly from their descriptions and pictures. The descriptions or images of the products on our website, social media channels or other marketing materials (e.g. in our brochures or catalogues) are for illustrative purposes only. Your product may vary slightly from those description and images and any props used in images of the products are not included in your order unless stated. 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. Although we have made every effort to be as accurate as possible, all sizes, weights, capacities, dimensions, colours and measurements indicated on our website have a tolerance.
    • Product packaging may vary. The packaging of the product may vary from that shown in images on our website.

  1. Our rights to make changes
    • Minor changes to the products. We may change the product:
      • to reflect changes in relevant laws and regulatory requirements; and
      • to implement minor adjustments and improvements. These changes will not affect your use of the product.
    • More significant changes to the products and these terms. In addition, we may make more significant changes to these terms or the product, but if we do so we will notify you and you may then contact us to end the contract before the changes take effect and receive a refund for any products paid for but not received.
  2. Providing the products
    • Delivery costs. The costs of delivery will be as displayed to you on our website.
    • When we will provide the products. During the order process we will let you know when we will provide the products to you. We will contact you with an estimated delivery date, which will be within 30 days after the day on which we accept your order.
    • We are not responsible for delays 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. 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 in accordance with clause 6.
    • Collection if you are a business customer. If you are a business customer and you have arranged to collect the products from our premises, you can collect them from us at such address, and during our working hours, as notified to you from time to time.
    • British Forces Post Office (BFPO). If you would like the products to be delivered to a BFPO address please contact our customer service team at +44(0)20 80926188 or by writing to us at info@homewooddelights.co.uk before placing an order. All orders to a BFPO address have a weight limit of 2kg and may incur an additional delivery charge. Delivery to a BFPO address may be subject to delays outside our control (see clause 3).
    • If you are not at home when the product is delivered. If no one is available at the delivery 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. We will not be responsible for any deterioration in perishable products after a failed delivery.
    • If you do not re-arrange delivery. If you do not collect the products from us as arranged or if, after a failed delivery to you, you do not re-arrange delivery or collect them we will contact you for further instructions and may charge you for storage costs and 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 and clause 2 will apply.

    • When you own products. You own a product once we have received payment in full.
    • What will happen if you do not give required information to us. We may need certain information from you so that we can supply the products to you. If so, this will have been stated in the description of the products on our website. We will contact you to ask for this information. 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 (and clause 2 will apply) 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.
    • Reasons we may suspend the supply of products to you. We may have to suspend the supply of a product to:
      • deal with technical problems or make minor technical changes;
      • update the product to reflect changes in relevant laws and regulatory requirements; or
      • make changes to the product as requested by you or notified by us to you (see clause 6).
    • Your rights if we suspend the supply of products. 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 we will adjust the price so that you do not pay for products while they are suspended. You may contact us to end the contract for a product if we suspend it, or tell you we are going to suspend it, in each case for a period of more than 10 days and we will refund any sums you have paid in advance for the product in respect of the period after you end the contract.
    • We may also suspend supply of the products if you do not pay. If you do not pay us for the products when you are supposed to (see clause 4) and you still do not make payment within 10 days of us reminding you that payment is due, we may suspend supply of the products until you have paid us the outstanding amounts. We will contact you to tell you we are suspending supply of the products. We will not suspend the products where you dispute the unpaid invoice (see clause 14.7). We will not charge you for the products during the period for which they are suspended. As well as suspending the products we can also charge you interest on your overdue payments (see clause 14.6).
  3. Your rights to end the contract
    • You can always end your contract with us. Your rights when you end the contract will depend on what you have bought, whether there is anything wrong with it, how we are performing, when you decide to end the contract and whether you are a consumer or business customer:
      • If what you have bought is faulty or misdescribed you may have a legal right to end the contract (or to get the product repaired or replaced or to get some or all of your money back), see clause 12 if you are a consumer and clause 13 if you are a business;
      • If you want to end the contract because of something we have done or have told you we are going to do, see clause 2;
      • If you are a consumer and have just changed your mind about the product, see clause 3. You may be able to get a refund if you are within the cooling-off period, but this may be subject to deductions and you will have to pay the costs of return of any products;
      • In all other cases (if we are not at fault and you are not a consumer exercising your right to change your mind), see clause 6.
    • Ending the contract because of something we have done or are going to do. If you are ending a contract for a reason set out at 2.1 to 8.2.5 below the contract will end immediately and we will refund you in full for any products which have not been provided and you may also be entitled to compensation. The reasons are:
      • we have told you about an upcoming significant change to the product or these terms which you do not agree to (see clause 2);
      • we have told you about an error in the price or description of the product you have ordered and you do not wish to proceed;
      • there is a risk that supply of the products may be significantly delayed because of events outside our control;
      • we have suspended supply of the products for technical reasons, or notify you we are going to suspend them for technical reasons, in each case for a period of more than 10 days; or
      • you have a legal right to end the contract because of something we have done wrong.
    • Exercising your right to change your mind if you are a consumer (Consumer Contracts Regulations 2013). If you are a consumer then for most products bought online you have a legal right to change your mind within 14 days and receive a refund. These rights, under the Consumer Contracts Regulations 2013, are explained in more detail in these terms.
    • When consumers do not have a right to change their minds. Your right as a consumer to change your mind does not apply in respect of the following products:
      • perishable products that deteriorate quickly – like flowers, food, or drink – or any hampers or gift boxes that contain perishable products;
      • products that have been personalised or custom-made for you;
      • products sealed for health protection or hygiene purposes, once these have been unsealed after you receive them – like jewellery, food or drink; and
      • any products which become mixed inseparably with other items after their delivery.
    • How long do consumers have to change their minds? If you are a consumer how long you have to change your mind depends on how it is delivered. You have:
      • 14 days after the day you (or someone you nominate) receives the products, unless:
        • your products are split into several deliveries over different days. In this case you have until 14 days after the day you (or someone you nominate) receives the last delivery.
      • Ending the contract where we are not at fault and there is no right to change your mind. Even if we are not at fault and you are not a consumer who has a right to change their mind (see clause 1), you can still end the contract before it is completed, but you may have to pay us compensation. The contract is completed when the product is delivered and paid for. If you want to end a contract before it is completed where we are not at fault and you are not a consumer who has changed their mind, just contact us to let us know. The contract will end immediately and we will refund any sums paid by you for products not provided but we may deduct from that refund (or, if you have not made an advance payment, charge you) reasonable compensation for the net costs we will incur as a result of your ending the contract.
  1. How to end the contract with us (including if you are a consumer who has changed their mind)
    • Tell us you want to end the contract. To end the contract with us, please let us know by doing one of the following:
      • Phone or email. Call customer services on +44 (0)20 80926188 or email us at info@homewooddelights.co.uk. Please provide your name, home address, details of the order and, where available, your phone number and email address.
    • Returning products after ending the contract. 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 post them back to us at Homewood Delights Ltd, 3 Homewood Lane, Homewood Lodge, Northaw, EN6 4PP or (if they are not suitable for posting) allow us to collect them from you. Please call customer services on +44 (0)20 80926188 or email us at info@homewooddelights.co.uk for a return label or to arrange collection. If you are a consumer exercising your right to change your mind you must send off the products within 14 days of receipt of the products.
    • When we will pay the costs of return. We will pay the costs of return:
      • if the products are faulty or misdescribed;
      • if you are ending the contract because we have told you of an upcoming significant change to the product or these terms, an error in pricing or description, a delay in delivery due to events outside our control or because you have a legal right to do so as a result of something we have done wrong.
    • In all other circumstances (including where you are a consumer exercising your right to change your mind) you must pay the costs of return.
    • What we charge for collection. If you are responsible for the costs of return and we are collecting the product from you, we will charge you the direct cost to us of collection. The costs of collection will be the same as our charges for standard delivery.
    • How we will refund you. If you are entitled to a refund under these terms, we will refund you the price you paid for the products including delivery costs, by the method you used for payment. However, we may make deductions from the price, as described below.
    • When we may make deduction from refunds if you are a consumer exercising your right to change your mind. 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, if this has been 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.
      • The maximum refund for delivery costs will be the costs of delivery by the least expensive delivery method we offer. For example, if we offer delivery of a product within 3-5 days at one cost but you choose to have the product delivered within 24 hours at a higher cost, then we will only refund what you would have paid for the cheaper delivery option.
    • When your refund will be made. We will make any refunds due to you as soon as possible. If you are a consumer exercising your right to change your mind then:
      • If we have not offered to collect them, your refund will be made within 14 days from the day on which we receive the product back from you or, if earlier, the day on which you provide us with evidence that you have sent the product back to us. For information about how to return a product to us, see clause 2.
      • In all other cases, your refund will be made within 14 days of your telling us you have changed your mind.
  1. Our rights to end the contract
    • We may end the contract if you break it. We may end the contract for a product at any time by writing to you if:
      • you do not make any payment to us when it is due and you still do not make payment within 14 days of us reminding you that payment is due;
      • you do not, within a reasonable time of us asking for it, provide us with information that is necessary for us to provide the products;
      • you do not, within a reasonable time, allow us to deliver the products to you or collect them from us; or
      • you do not meet the legal age requirements set out in clause 4.
    • You must compensate us if you break the contract. If we end the contract in the situations set out in clause 1 we will refund any money you have paid in advance for products we have not provided but we may deduct or charge you reasonable compensation for the net costs we will incur as a result of your breaking the contract.
  2. If there is a problem with the product

How to tell us about problems. If you have any questions or complaints about the product, please contact us. You can telephone our customer service team at +44 (0)20 80926188 or email us at info@homewooddelights.co.uk.

  1. Your rights in respect of defective products if you are a consumer
    • If you are a consumer we are under a legal duty to supply products that are in conformity with this contract. See the box below for a summary of your key legal rights in relation to the products. Nothing in these terms will affect your legal rights.

Summary of your key legal rights

This is a summary of your key legal rights. These are subject to certain exceptions. For detailed information please visit the Citizens Advice website www.citizensadvice.org.uk

The Consumer Rights Act 2015 says goods must be as described, fit for purpose and of satisfactory quality. During the expected lifespan of your product your legal rights entitle you to the following:

a) Up to 30 days: if your goods are faulty, then you can get an immediate refund.

b) Up to six months: if your goods can't be repaired or replaced, then you're entitled to a full refund, in most cases.

c) Up to six years: if your goods do not last a reasonable length of time you may be entitled to some money back.

See also clause 8.3.

  • Your obligation to return rejected products. If you wish to exercise your legal rights to reject products you must post them back to us or (if they are not suitable for posting) allow us to collect them from you. We will pay the costs of postage or collection. Please call customer services on +44 (0)20 80926188 or email us at info@homewooddelights.co.uk for a return label or to arrange collection.
  1. Your rights in respect of defective products if you are a business
    • If you are a business customer we warrant that on delivery any products shall:
      • conform in all material respects with their description and any relevant specification;
      • be free from material defects in design, material and workmanship;
      • be of satisfactory quality (within the meaning of the Sale of Goods Act 1979); and
      • be fit for any purpose held out by us.
    • Subject to clause 3, if:
      • you give us notice in writing within a reasonable time of discovery that a product does not comply with the warranty set out in clause 1;
      • we are given a reasonable opportunity of examining such product; and
      • you return such product to us at our cost,

we shall, at our option, repair or replace the defective product, or refund the price of the defective product in full.

  • We will not be liable for a product's failure to comply with the warranty in clause 1 if:
    • you make any further use of such product after giving a notice in accordance with clause 2.1;
    • the defect arises because you failed to follow our oral or written instructions as to the storage, installation, commissioning, use or maintenance of the product or (if there are none) good trade practice;
    • the defect arises as a result of us following any specification supplied by you;
    • you alter or repair the product without our written consent; or
    • the defect arises as a result of fair wear and tear, wilful damage, negligence, or abnormal working conditions.
  • Except as provided in this clause 13, we shall have no liability to you in respect of a product's failure to comply with the warranty set out in clause 1.
  • These terms shall apply to any repaired or replacement products supplied by us under clause 2.
  1. Price and payment
    • Where to find the price for the product. The price of the product (which includes VAT) will be the price indicated on the order pages when you placed your order. We take all reasonable care to ensure that the price of the product advised to you is correct. However please see clause 3 for what happens if we discover an error in the price of the product you order.
    • We will pass on changes in the rate of VAT. If the rate of VAT changes between your order date and the date we supply the product, we will adjust the rate of VAT that you pay, unless you have already paid for the product in full before the change in the rate of VAT takes effect.
    • 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 products provided to you.
    • When you must pay and how you must pay. We accept payment with credit or debit card. You must pay for the products before we dispatch them. We will not charge your credit or debit card until we dispatch the products to you.
    • Our right of set-off if you are a business customer. If you are a business customer you must pay all amounts due to us under these terms in full without any set-off, counterclaim, deduction or withholding (other than any deduction or withholding of tax as required by law).
    • We can charge interest if you pay late. If you do not make any payment to us by the due date we may charge interest to you on the overdue amount at the rate of 1% a year above the base lending rate of the Bank of England from time to time. This interest shall accrue on a daily basis from the due date until the date of actual payment of the overdue amount, whether before or after judgment. You must pay us interest together with any overdue amount.
    • What to do if you think an invoice is wrong. If you think an invoice is wrong please contact us promptly to let us know. You will not have to pay any interest until the dispute is resolved. Once the dispute is resolved we will charge you interest on correctly invoiced sums from the original due date.
    • We take payment security very seriously. We have implemented the following security measures to provide you peace of mind when you make an order on our website:
      • Our website uses high-level Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) Encryption technology, which is the most advanced security software currently available for online transactions. This allows your payment card details to be transmitted securely when you make a payment online. You can tell a website is secure if you see a closed padlock and “https” instead of “http” at the front of the domain name in your browser address window.
      • We have built in strong customer authentication (SCA) into our checkout process to make online payments more secure. This is designed to establish that the person trying to make a payment is either you, or someone to whom you have given consent. To use this service, you must first be registered with your bank or other organisation that issued your payment card. If you are prompted at checkout to provide a password to authenticate your online purchase this will be the password you have assigned to your payment card. Using this password to authenticate an online purchase on our website does not provide us access to this password.

Please do not provide your payments details to us by email or fax as we cannot guarantee the security of your details if they are provided to us in this way.

  1. ,span style="color: green;">Our responsibility for loss or damage suffered by you if you are a consumer
    • We are responsible to you for foreseeable loss and damage caused by us.

    • 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.
    • 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, that will not mean that you do not have to do those things and it will not prevent us taking steps against you at a later date. For example, if you miss a payment and we do not chase you but we continue to provide the products, we can still require you to make the payment at a later date.
    • Which laws apply to this contract and where you may bring legal proceedings if you are a consumer. These terms are governed by English law and you can bring legal proceedings in respect of the products in the English courts. If you live in Scotland you can bring legal proceedings in respect of the products in either the Scottish or the English courts. If you live in Northern Ireland you can bring legal proceedings in respect of the products in either the Northern Irish or the English courts.

Which laws apply to this contract and where you may bring legal proceedings if you are a business. If you are a business, any dispute or claim arising out of or in connection with a contract between us 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 and the courts of England and Wales shall have exclusive jurisdiction to settle any such dispute or claim
