Delivery and Return of Orders
10.1 All orders made before 3pm will be sent out for next day deliveries. All orders made after 3pm will be sent out the following day for next day delivery.
10.1 Orders can only be delivered to addresses within the United Kingdom (including Northern Ireland); this excludes PO Box addresses and BFPO addresses.
10.2 Boxes are delivered by your local postie. Proof of delivery is not obtained. Actual delivery times may vary for you depending on:
10.2.1 our stock availability;
10.2.2 your delivery address;
10.2.3 when you make your selection; and
10.2.4 circumstances impacting delivery by the postal service.
We reserve the right to use alternative delivery methods without prior notification.
10.3 You will not hold us responsible for any delays, outside our control, which relate to the delivery of boxes.
10.4 It is your responsibility to report all lost or undelivered boxes online within 7 days of the expected day of delivery.
10.5 If you are out when your order is delivered, your postie should leave a card at the address with information about collection or re-delivery. The postage provider will hold the box for 18 days before returning it to us and it is your responsibility to contact them to arrange receipt of the box as soon as you can. Due to the perishable nature of the drinks, we cannot be held responsible for refunding or replacing the order if this process has not been followed.
10.6 Where the above process is followed the following credit procedure applies:
10.6.1 Orders. Please report the problem to us via email: firstname.lastname@example.org Where an order is first reported as lost, a credit for half the price of the box is given as the box may still turn up. If the box is reported again as having not arrived, the remainder of the credit for that box will be given.
10.8 We reserve the right to cancel your subscription account with us if it becomes apparent that, in our sole opinion, the postal service in your area is too unreliable.
10.9 If you are dissatisfied with any product you receive from us, please contact our customer services team on email@example.com. We retain the right to request a return of any faulty goods by recorded delivery to
Unit 5 Park Trading Estate
and the product will be inspected. If we request recorded delivery then we will pay for the cost of the postage on provision of the postage receipt. If the fault is agreed, a full refund will be given for the returned goods. Nothing in this section affects your legal rights.
10.10 If you place an order for multiple one-off orders, please be aware that they will still be sent via your local postie and may be subject to delays. We therefore cannot guarantee delivery on a specific day and will not be held liable for delays outside of our control.
11.1 As all our orders are sent by next day delivery, orders can only be cancelled before 3pm on the day of ordering. You remain responsible for ensuring that any such change or cancellation is not only transmitted by you, but received by us, in time for this deadline.
11.3 We reserve the right to terminate or restrict your use of our service, for any or no reason whatsoever. One reason that we may do so is if we believe that you are in breach of any obligation under these Terms and Conditions. If we terminate your use of our service as a result of a breach of any obligation under these Terms and Conditions, such termination would be immediate and may be without notice.
11.4 We may cancel a contract under these Terms and Conditions by written notice to you if we are prevented from fulfilling that contract by any event beyond our reasonable control, including without limitation any technical error, any unavailability of raw materials, components or products, or any power failure, industrial dispute affecting any third party, governmental regulations, fire, flood, disaster, riot, terrorist attack, war or similar force majeure event.
11.5 Due to the perishable nature of the goods we deliver, you do not have the right to cancel an order under the Consumer Contracts (Information, Cancellation and Additional Charges) Regulations 2013.

13.3 Subject to clause 13.1, in no event shall we be liable to you for any business losses. Any liability we do have for losses you suffer is strictly limited to the purchase price of the relevant products and to losses that were foreseeable.
