Our goods and subscription service
You may place orders for products through our platforms either by:
placing a one-off order for goods; or
through subscribing to our services.
One off purchase of goods. If you do place a one-off order for goods through our platform, we shall take payment for those goods on the day that your order is placed via your selected payment method.
When you subscribe to our services we will automatically sign you up to receive a regular monthly delivery of products. We refer to this generally within these terms and conditions as a “subscription”.
There are several different types of subscriptions available to you. Depending on which of the below subscription services you select at the time of placing your order, the term for which products will be delivered to you, and the payment terms on which such orders are placed, will vary.
You may place an order through our website on the basis of any of the following subscription terms:
Our “standard” monthly rolling subscription to receive a delivery of products one time per month from the date of subscription until that subscription is cancelled in accordance with the terms set out in clause 8. We shall take payment for the first month of the subscription on the date that your order is placed, and shall take payment for each subsequent month via repeat payment through your chosen payment method seven (7) days prior to your products being dispatched, for the duration of the subscription. We shall take payment, and provide products to you, on a monthly basis until the subscription is cancelled;
Our “quarterly” subscription to receive a delivery of products from us one time per month for a period of three consecutive months from the date of subscription. We shall take payment for the entire three month subscription at the time of placing your order The payment price for such a quarterly subscription is likely to be less than if you were to purchase three months’ worth of products through a “standard” monthly subscription. You may not cancel your quarterly subscription following receipt of payment (unless you are otherwise able to do so in accordance with your statutory rights). This subscription will not affect your statutory rights, however. Unless otherwise renewed, the quarterly subscription will automatically convert into a “standard” monthly rolling subscription at the end of the three month period;
Our “half-year” subscription to receive delivery of products from us one time per month for a period of six consecutive months from the date of subscription. We shall take payment for the entire six month subscription at the time of placing your order. The payment price for such a half-year subscription is likely to be less than if you were to purchase six months’ worth of products through a “standard” monthly subscription. You may not cancel your half-year subscription following receipt of payment (unless you are otherwise able to do so in accordance with your statutory rights). Unless otherwise renewed, the “half-year”subscription will automatically convert into a “standard” monthly rolling subscription at the end of the initial six month period.
Our “annual” subscription to receive delivery of products from us one time per month for a period of 12 consecutive months from the date of subscription. We shall take payment for the entire 12 month subscription at the time of placing your order. The payment price for such a annual subscription is likely to be less than if you were to purchase 12 months’ worth of products through a “standard” monthly subscription. You may not cancel your annual subscription following receipt of payment (unless you are otherwise able to do so in accordance with your statutory rights). Unless otherwise renewed, the “annual”subscription will automatically convert into a “standard” monthly rolling subscription at the end of the initial 12 month period

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, for example, when you subscribe to your subscription box. If so, this will have been stated in the description of the products on our website. 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 10.2 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 contact you to tell you we are suspending supply of the products. We will not charge you for the products during the period for which they are suspended.
Your rights to end the contract
You may be able to 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 and when you decide to end the contract:
If what you have bought is faulty or misdescribed you may have a legal right to end the contract (or to get the product replaced or to get some or all of your money back), see clause 11;
If you want to end the contract because of something we have done or have told you we are going to do, see clause 8.2;
If you have just changed your mind about the product, see clause 8.3. 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 returning any goods;
In all other cases (if we are not at fault and there is no right to change your mind), see clause 8.6.
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 (a) to (e) below the contract will end immediately and we will refund you, on a pro-rata basis, for any products which have not been provided. The reasons are:
we have told you about an upcoming change to the product or these terms which you do not agree to (see clause 7.2);
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 one month; or
you have a legal right to end the contract because of something we have done wrong (including because we have delivered late (see clause 7.8).
Exercising your right to change your mind (Consumer Contracts Regulations 2013). 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 you don’t have the right to change your mind. You do not have a right to change your mind in respect of:
products sealed for health protection or hygiene purposes, once these have been unsealed after you receive them;
any products which become mixed inseparably with other items after their delivery.
How long do I have to change my mind? How long you have depends on what you have ordered and how it is delivered.
If you have bought goods: you have 14 days after the day you (or someone you nominate) receives the first delivery of goods, unless:
Your goods 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 to change your mind about the goods.
Your goods are for regular delivery over a set period (our subscription boxes). In this case you have until 14 days after the day you (or someone you nominate) receives the first delivery of the goods.
Ending the subscription 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 do not have a right to change your mind (see clause 8.1), you can still end the contract before it is completed. A contract for goods is completed when the product is delivered and paid for. If you want to end the contract in these circumstances, just contact us to let us know via the website or by calling 0800 028 8808. However, please note that in these circumstances the contract can only be cancelled (without prejudice to your statutory rights):
up to 8 days before your chosen delivery date in respect of a “standard” rolling subscription (as further described at clause 3.3(a)); and
up to eight days before the last delivery date of the “quarterly”, “half-year” or “annual” subscription period, as the case may be, to prevent the subscription converting into a “standard” rolling subscription in accordance with clauses 3.5(b), (c) or (d).
For the avoidance of doubt, other than in respect of any material breach by us in connection with the services, you will not be entitled to any pro-rata or part refund in respect of any “quarterly”, “half-year” or “annual” subscription.

In all other circumstances, such as where you have simply changed your mind in accordance with paragraph 8.3, you must pay the cost of returns.
How we will refund you. We will refund you the price you paid for the product by the method you used for payment. However, we may make deductions from the price, as described below.
Deductions from refunds if you are 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 goods, 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 goods 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 exercising your right to change your mind then:
If the products are goods, 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.
In all other cases, your refund will be made within 14 days of your telling us you have changed your mind
Our rights to end the contract

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 to you;
you do not, within a reasonable time, allow us to deliver the products to you.
You must compensate us if you break the contract. If we end the contract in the situations set out in clause 10.1 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, as compensation for the net costs we will incur as a result of your breaking the contract.
We may withdraw products. We may write to you to let you know that we are going to stop providing a particular product. We will attempt to let you know at least one week in advance of our stopping the supply of such a product.

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 use our best efforts to ensure that the price of the product advised to you is correct. However please see clause 12.3 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 goods provided to you.
When you must pay and how you must pay.
We accept payment for a one-off order of goods via credit and debit card, PayPal and ApplePay, in accordance with clause 3.2; and
We accept payment for your monthly subscription via credit card, debit card and ApplePay as further described in clause 3.3.
You must update us with any changes to your payment details, within three working days of changing the details. You can make changes to your payment details by updating them via our website in “My Account”.
If a payment has been rejected by your bank, we may suspend your orders via our Website. You must contact us to arrange payment and wait for that payment to go through before you can make changes to your order through the Website again.
We reserve the right to suspend deliveries to you and/or terminate our agreement with you if we are refused authority from your card issuer for payment or we reasonably believe that payment will be refused. You agree to compensate us in full against any and all reasonable costs and expenses (including reasonable legal) costs and expenses that we may incur in obtaining payments due from you that you have not made in accordance with your agreement with us as set out in these Terms and Conditions.
You must pay for the products before we dispatch them. We will not charge you until we dispatch the products to you, unless otherwise stated in these terms and conditions. In respect of subscription services, we will forward the subscription product after the effective billing date .
Our responsibility for loss or damage suffered by you
We do not exclude or limit in any way our liability to you where it would be unlawful to do so. This includes liability for death or personal injury caused by our negligence or the negligence of our employees for fraud or fraudulent misrepresentation; for breach of your legal rights in relation to the products as summarised at clause 11.2 and for defective products under the Consumer Protection Act 1987
We are not liable for business losses. We only supply the products for domestic and private use. If you use the products for any commercial, business or re-sale purpose we will have no liability to you for any costs, expenses, damages and losses (including but not limited to any direct, indirect or consequential losses, loss of profit, loss of reputation, loss of business, business interruption, or loss of business opportunity and all interest, penalties and legal costs (calculated on a full indemnity basis) and all other professional costs and expenses) suffered or incurred by you. Nothing in this clause shall restrict or limit your general obligation at law to mitigate a loss you may suffer or incur as a result of an event that may give rise to a claim under this indemnity.
How we may use your personal information
How we will use your personal information. We will use the personal information you provide to us:
to supply the products to you;
to process your payment for the products; and
if you agreed to this during the order process, to give you information about similar products that we provide, but you may stop receiving this at any time by contacting us.
We will only give your personal information to third parties where the law either requires or allows us to do so.
Other important terms
We may transfer this agreement to someone else. We may transfer our rights and obligations under these terms to another organisation. We will contact you to let you know if we plan to do this. If you are unhappy with the transfer you may contact us to end the contract within one month of us telling you about it and we will refund you any payments you have made in advance for products not provided.
You need our consent to transfer your rights to someone else (except that you can always transfer our guarantee). You may only transfer your rights or your obligations under these terms to another person if we agree to this in writing.
Nobody else has any rights under this contract (except someone you pass your guarantee on to). This contract is between you and us. No other person shall have any rights to enforce any of its terms, except as explained in clause 15.2 in respect of our guarantee. Neither of us will need to get the agreement of any other person in order to end the contract or make any changes to these terms.
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.
This agreement shall be construed and interpreted under the laws of England and Wales. If you reside in a member state of the European Community the parties submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of the courts of England and Wales in the event of any dispute. In all other cases the parties agree that disputes shall be referred to arbitration under the rules of UNCITRAL. The arbitration shall take place in London with one arbitrator sitting whose decision shall be final and binding. The language of any such arbitration proceedings shall be English.

We will do our best to assess any possible risks for users (and in particular, for children) from third parties when they use any interactive service provided on our site, and we will decide in each case whether it is appropriate to use moderation of the relevant service (including what kind of moderation to use) in the light of those risks.

DATA PROTECTION POLICY+
Everyone has rights with regard to the way in which their personal data in handled. During the course of our activities we will collect, store and process personal data about our customers, suppliers and other third parties, and we recognise that the correct and lawful treatment of this data will maintain confidence in the organisation and will provide for successful business operations.
Data users are obliged to comply with this policy when processing personal data on our behalf. Any breach of this policy may result in disciplinary action.
About this policy
The personal data, which may be held on paper or on a computer or other media, is subject to certain legal safeguards specified in the Data Protection Act 1998 (the Act) and other regulations.
This policy and any other documents referred to in it sets out the basis on which we will process any personal data we collect from data subjects, or that is provided to us by data subjects or other sources.
Definition of data protection terms
Data is information which is stored electronically, on a computer, or in certain paper-based filing systems.
Data subjects for the purpose of this policy include all living individuals about whom we holds personal data. A data subject need not be a UK national or resident. All data subjects have legal rights in relation to their personal information.
Personal data means data relating to a living individual who can be identified from that data (or from that data and other information in our possession). Personal data can be factual (for example, a name, address or date of birth) or it can be an opinion about that person, their actions and behaviour.
Data controllers are the people who or organisations which determine the purposes for which, and the manner in which, any personal data is processed. They are responsible for establishing practices and policies in line with the Act. We are the data controller of all personal data used in our business for our own commercial purposes.
Data users are those of our employees whose work involves processing personal data. Data users must protect the data they handle in accordance with this data protection policy and any applicable data security procedures at all times.
Data processors include any person or organisation that is not a data user that processes personal data on our behalf and on our instructions. Employees of data controllers are excluded from this definition but it could include suppliers which handle personal data on [COMPANY’S] behalf.
Processing is any activity that involves use of the data. It includes obtaining, recording or holding the data, or carrying out any operation or set of operations on the data including organising, amending, retrieving, using, disclosing, erasing or destroying it. Processing also includes transferring personal data to third parties.
Sensitive personal data includes information about a person’s racial or ethnic origin, political opinions, religious or similar beliefs, trade union membership, physical or mental health or condition or sexual life, or about the commission of, or proceedings for, any offence committed or alleged to have been committed by that person, the disposal of such proceedings or the sentence of any court in such proceedings. Sensitive personal data can only be processed under strict conditions, including a condition requiring the express permission of the person concerned.
Data protection principles
Anyone processing personal data must comply with the eight enforceable principles of good practice. These provide that personal data must be:
Processed fairly and lawfully.
Processed for limited purposes and in an appropriate way.
Adequate, relevant and not excessive for the purpose.
Not kept longer than necessary for the purpose.
Processed in line with data subjects’ rights.
Not transferred to people or organisations situated in countries without adequate protection.
Fair and lawful processing
The Act is not intended to prevent the processing of personal data, but to ensure that it is done fairly and without adversely affecting the rights of the data subject.
For personal data to be processed lawfully, they must be processed on the basis of one of the legal grounds set out in the Act. These include, among other things, the data subject’s consent to the processing, or that the processing is necessary for the performance of a contract with the data subject, for the compliance with a legal obligation to which the data controller is subject, or for the legitimate interest of the data controller or the party to whom the data is disclosed. When sensitive personal data is being processed, additional conditions must be met. When processing personal data as data controllers in the course of our business, we will ensure that those requirements are met.
Processing for limited purposes
In the course of our business, we may collect and process the personal data set out in the Schedule. This may include data we receive directly from a data subject (for example, by completing forms or by corresponding with us by mail, phone, email or otherwise) and data we receive from other sources (including, for example, business partners, sub-contractors in technical, payment and delivery services, credit reference agencies and others).
We will only process personal data for the specific purposes set out in the Schedule or for any other purposes specifically permitted by the Act. We will notify those purposes to the data subject when we first collect the data or as soon as possible thereafter.
Notifying data subjects
If we collect personal data directly from data subjects, we will inform them about:
The purpose or purposes for which we intend to process that personal data.
The types of third parties, if any, with which we will share or to which we will disclose that personal data.
The means, if any, with which data subjects can limit our use and disclosure of their personal data.
If we receive personal data about a data subject from other sources, we will provide the data subject with this information as soon as possible thereafter.
We will also inform data subjects whose personal data we process that we are the data controller with regard to that data.
Adequate, relevant and non-excessive processing
We will only collect personal data to the extent that it is required for the specific purpose notified to the data subject.
We will ensure that personal data we hold is accurate and kept up to date. We will check the accuracy of any personal data at the point of collection and at regular intervals afterwards. We will take all reasonable steps to destroy or amend inaccurate or out-of-date data.
We will not keep personal data longer than is necessary for the purpose or purposes for which they were collected. We will take all reasonable steps to destroy, or erase from our systems, all data which is no longer required.
Processing in line with data subject’s rights
We will process all personal data in line with data subjects’ rights, in particular their right to:
Request access to any data held about them by a data controller (see also clause 15).
Prevent the processing of their data for direct-marketing purposes.
Ask to have inaccurate data amended (see also clause 9).
Prevent processing that is likely to cause damage or distress to themselves or anyone else.
We will Take appropriate security measures against unlawful or unauthorised processing of personal data, and against the accidental loss of, or damage to, personal data.
We will put in place procedures and technologies to maintain the security of all personal data from the point of collection to the point of destruction. Personal data will only be transferred to a data processor if he agrees to comply with those procedures and policies, or if he puts in place adequate measures himself.
We will maintain data security by protecting the confidentiality, integrity and availability of the personal data, defined as follows:
Confidentiality means that only people who are authorised to use the data can access it.
Integrity means that personal data should be accurate and suitable for the purpose for which it is processed.
Availability means that authorised users should be able to access the data if they need it for authorised purposes. Personal data should therefore be stored on the company’s central computer system instead of individual PCs.
Security procedures include:
Entry controls. Any stranger seen in entry-controlled areas should be reported.
Secure lockable desks and cupboards. Desks and cupboards should be kept locked if they hold confidential information of any kind. (Personal information is always considered confidential.)
Methods of disposal. Paper documents should be shredded. Digital storage devices should be physically destroyed when they are no longer required.
Equipment. Data users must ensure that individual monitors do not show confidential information to passers-by and that they log off from their PC when it is left unattended.
Transferring personal data to a country outside the EEA
We may transfer any personal data we hold to a country outside the European Economic Area (“EEA”), provided that one of the following conditions applies:
The country to which the personal data are transferred ensures an adequate level of protection for the data subjects’ rights and freedoms.
The data subject has given his consent.
The transfer is necessary for one of the reasons set out in the Act, including the performance of a contract between us and the data subject, or to protect the vital interests of the data subject.
The transfer is legally required on important public interest grounds or for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims.
The transfer is authorised by the relevant data protection authority where we have adduced adequate safeguards with respect to the protection of the data subjects’ privacy, their fundamental rights and freedoms, and the exercise of their rights.
Subject to the requirements in clause 12.1 above, personal data we hold may also be processed by staff operating outside the EEA who work for us or for one of our suppliers. That staff maybe engaged in, among other things, the fulfilment of contracts with the data subject, the processing of payment details and the provision of support services.
Disclosure and sharing of personal information
We may share personal data we hold with any member of our group, which means our subsidiaries, our ultimate holding company and its subsidiaries, as defined in section 1159 of the UK Companies Act 2006.
We may also disclose personal data we hold to third parties:
In the event that we sell or buy any business or assets, in which case we may disclose personal data we hold to the prospective seller or buyer of such business or assets.
If we or substantially all of our assets are acquired by a third party, in which case personal data we hold will be one of the transferred assets.
If we are under a duty to disclose or share a data subject’s personal data in order to comply with any legal obligation, or in order to enforce or apply any contract with the data subject or other agreements; or to protect our rights, property, or safety of our employees, customers, or others. This includes exchanging information with other companies and organisations for the purposes of fraud protection and credit risk reduction.
We may also share personal data we hold with selected third parties for the purposes set out in the Schedule.
Dealing with subject access requests
Data subjects must make a formal request for information we hold about them. This must be made in writing.
When receiving telephone enquiries, we will only disclose personal data we hold on our systems if the following conditions are met:
We will check the caller’s identity to make sure that information is only given to a person who is entitled to it.
We will suggest that the caller put their request in writing if we are not sure about the caller’s identity and where their identity cannot be checked.
Changes to this policy
We reserve the right to change this policy at any time. Where appropriate, we will notify data subjects of those changes by mail or email.
