Any amendments we make to these Terms will not affect any order you have already submitted unless we are required to revise these Terms to reflect any changes in relevant laws and regulatory requirements. If we do have to revise these Terms 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. If you opt to cancel, you will have to return (at our cost) any Goods you have already received and we will arrange a full refund of the price you have paid, including any delivery charges.
- YOUR RIGHT TO CANCEL THE CONTRACT
5.1. If you are a consumer, you have a legal right to cancel a Contract under the Consumer Contracts (Information, Cancellation and Additional Charges) Regulations 2013 during the period set out below in clause 5.3. This means that during the relevant period if you change your mind 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. Advice about your legal right to cancel the Contract is available from your local Citizens' Advice Bureau or Trading Standards office.
5.2. However, this cancellation right does not apply in the case of Goods that are liable to deteriorate or expire rapidly or any Goods which become mixed inseparably with other items after their delivery.
5.3. Your legal right to cancel a Contract starts from the date of the Dispatch Confirmation (the date on which we e-mail you to confirm our acceptance of your order), which is when the Contract between us is formed. Your deadline for cancelling the Contract then depends on what you have ordered and how it is delivered, as set out below:
(a) If your Contract is for a single item (which is not delivered in instalments on separate days), the end date is the end of 14 days after the day on which you receive the Goods.
(b) If your Contract is for either one item (which is delivered in instalments on separate days) or multiple items (which are delivered on separate days), the end date is 14 days after the day on which you receive the last instalment of the Goods or the last of the separate Goods ordered.
5.4. To cancel a Contract, you just need to let us know that you have decided to cancel, as set out in clause 1.2 above.
5.5. If you cancel your Contract we will:
(a) refund the price you paid for the Goods. However, please note 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 them in a way which would not be permitted in a shop (such as by opening any sealed food containers). If we refund 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.
(b) refund any delivery costs you have paid for standard delivery. Any amount paid for express or other such delivery over and above the cost of standard delivery are non-refundable.
(c) make any refunds due to you without undue delay and in any event no later than:
(i) if you have received the Goods: 14 days after the day on which we receive the Goods back from you or, if earlier, the day on which you provide us with evidence that you have sent the Goods back to us; or
(ii) if you have not received the Goods: 14 days after you inform us of your decision to cancel the Contract.
5.6. If you have returned the Goods to us under this clause 5 because they are faulty or mis-described, we will refund the price of the Goods in full, together with any applicable delivery charges, and any reasonable costs you incur in returning the item to us.
5.7. We will make any refund to the credit card or debit card or PayPal account used by you to pay.
5.8. If Goods have been delivered to you before you decide to cancel your Contract:
(a) Then, unless we otherwise notify you, you must return it to us without undue delay and in any event not later than 14 days after the day on which you let us know that you wish to cancel the Contract. You should send it back to us at The Innocent Pet Care Company Limited, Unit 11 Ash Way, Thorp Arch Estate, Wetherby, LS23 7FA;
(b) unless the Goods are faulty or not as described (in this case, see clause 5.6), you will be responsible for the cost of returning the Goods to us.
5.9. Because you are a consumer, we are under a legal duty to supply Goods that are in conformity with this Contract. As a consumer, you have legal rights in relation to Goods that are faulty or not as described. These legal rights are not affected by your right of return and refund in this clause 5 or anything else in these Terms. Advice about your legal rights is available from your local Citizens' Advice Bureau or Trading Standards office.
6.1. Our Dispatch Confirmation will include an estimated timescale for delivery. After we have issued a Dispatch Confirmation our third party carrier will contact you with an estimate delivery date, which will be within 15 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. See clause 9 for our responsibilities when this happens.
6.2. If no one is available at your address to take delivery, we (or our carrier) will leave you a note that we (or our carrier) has attempted to make delivery of the Goods. You should follow the instructions of the note to re-arrange delivery.
6.3. Delivery of an Order shall be completed when we (or our carrier) deliver the Goods to the address you gave us and the Goods will be your responsibility from that time. You own the Goods once delivery has been completed or (if later) once we have received payment in full, including all applicable delivery charges.
6.4. If we miss the 15 day delivery deadline for any Goods then you may cancel your Order straight away if we have refused to deliver the Goods; or if delivery within the delivery deadline was essential (taking into account all the relevant circumstances); or if you told us before we accepted your order that delivery within the delivery deadline was essential.
6.5. If you do not wish to cancel your order straight away, or do not have the right to do so under clause 6.4, you can give us a new deadline for delivery, which must be reasonable, and you can cancel your Order if we do not meet the new deadline.
6.6. If you do choose to cancel your Order for late delivery under clause 6.4 or 6.5, you can do so for just some of the Goods or all of them, unless splitting them up would significantly reduce their value. If the Goods have been delivered to you, you will have to return them to us, and we will pay the costs of this. After you cancel your Order we will refund any sums you have paid to us for the cancelled Goods and their delivery.
- PRICE OF GOODS, DELIVERY CHARGES AND PAYMENT
7.1. The prices of the Goods will be as quoted on our site at the time you submit your order. We use our best efforts to ensure that the prices of Goods are correct at the time when the relevant information was entered onto the system.
7.2. Prices for our Goods may change from time to time, but changes will not affect any order you have already placed for which we have issued a Dispatch Confirmation.
7.3. The price of the Goods includes VAT (where applicable) at the applicable current rate chargeable in the UK for the time being. However, if the rate of VAT changes between the date of your order and the date of delivery, we will adjust the VAT you pay, unless you have already paid for the Goods in full before the change in VAT takes effect.
7.4. The price of the Goods does not include delivery charges. Our delivery charges are as advised to you during the online check-out process or by our customer service team if you submit an order by telephone, before you confirm your order.
7.5. You can only pay for Goods using a debit card or credit card (we accept the following cards: Visa, Mastercard) or by PayPal. Payment for the Goods and all applicable delivery charges is to be made in advance and we will charge your debit card, credit card or PayPal account at the time you submit your order. In the event that we are unable to process or accept your order we will refund any amounts you have paid in advance in full.
- OUR LIABILITY TO YOU
8.1. If we fail to comply with these Terms, we are responsible for loss or damage you suffer that is a foreseeable result of our breach of these Terms or our negligence, but we are not responsible for any loss or damage that is not foreseeable. Loss or damage is foreseeable if it is an obvious consequence of our breach or if it was contemplated by you and us at the time we entered into the Contract.
8.2. We only supply the Goods for domestic and private use. You agree not to use the Goods for any commercial, business or resale purposes, and we have no liability to you for any loss of profit, loss of business, business interruption, loss of business opportunity or any other business losses.
8.3. We do not in any way exclude or limit our liability for:
(a) death or personal injury caused by our negligence;
(b) fraud or fraudulent misrepresentation;
(c) any breach of the terms implied by section 12 to 15 of the Sale of Goods Act 1979 (title and quiet possession, description, satisfactory quality, fitness for purpose and samples); and
(d) defective Goods under the Consumer Protection Act 1987.
- EVENTS OUTSIDE OUR CONTROL
9.1. 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. An “Event Outside Our Control” means any act or event beyond our reasonable control, including without limitation strikes, lock-outs or other industrial action by third parties, civil commotion, riot, invasion, terrorist attack or threat of terrorist attack, war (whether declared or not) or threat or preparation for war, fire, explosion, storm, flood, earthquake, subsidence, epidemic or other natural disaster, or failure of public or private telecommunications or transport networks.
9.2. If an Event Outside Our Control takes place that affects the performance of our obligations under a Contract:
(a) we will contact you as soon as reasonably possible to notify you; and
(b) 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 Goods to you, we will arrange a new delivery date with you after the Event Outside Our Control is over.
9.3. You may cancel a Contract affected by an Event Outside Our Control which has continued for more than 30 days. To cancel please contact us. If you opt to cancel, you will have to return (at our cost) any relevant Goods you have already received and we will refund the price you have paid, including any delivery charges.
- OTHER IMPORTANT TERMS
10.1. We may transfer our rights and obligations under a Contract to another organisation, but this will not affect your rights or our obligations under these Terms. We will always notify you if this happens. You may only transfer your rights or your obligations under these Terms to another person if we agree in writing.
10.2. This Contract is between you and us. No other person shall have any rights to enforce any of its terms.
10.3. Each of the paragraphs of these Terms operates separately. If any court or relevant authority decides that any of them are unlawful or unenforceable, the remaining paragraphs will remain in full force and effect.
10.4. If we fail to insist that you perform any of your obligations under these Terms, or if we do not enforce our rights against you, or if we delay in doing so, that will not mean that we have waived our rights against you and will not mean that you do not have to comply with those obligations. If we do waive a default by you, we will only do so in writing, and that will not mean that we will automatically waive any later default by you.
10.5. These Terms, any Contract for the purchase of Goods through our site and any dispute or claim arising out of or in connection with it will be governed by English law. You and we both agree to that the courts of England and Wales will have non-exclusive jurisdiction. However, if you are a resident of Northern Ireland you may also bring proceedings in Northern Ireland, and if you are a resident of Scotland, you may also bring proceedings in Scotland.
