TERMS AND CONDITIONS of Sale
Welcome to the Spice Larder Website (the “Website”) terms and conditions for use and terms of sale. These terms and conditions apply to purchases made through this Website and/or placing an order you agree to be bound by the terms and conditions set out below.
- General INFORMATION AND SELLER DETAILS
1.1. These Terms of Sale apply to all distance sales carried through the Website, made between you, the consumer, and vendors using our platform (the “Vendors”). We recommend that you read the following Terms of Sale carefully before making any purchase on the Website. Any purchase of product(s) on this Website is subject to these Terms of Sale. We reserve the right to change the Terms of Sale from time to time, thus, we recommend you always check the latest version.
1.2. Buying Product on this Website: All products available on the Website are sold by our Vendors and not by us. Information about each Vendor is available on their product page. Therefore the contract for the purchase of the item is between you and the Vendor. These terms and conditions will apply to each such contract. Each order you place by clicking the place order button is an offer by you to purchase the products or services you have selected from the relevant Vendor on the basis of these Terms and Conditions and the applicable details on the product page. The order is accepted when we (acting as agent of the Vendor) issue an email confirmation of your order. The contract will be between you and the Vendor.
1.3. Liability of Spice Larder The Spice Larder will make every effort to require Vendors to describe products accurately on this Website but as you are buying the products from one of our Vendors and not from the Spice Larder, the Spice Larder will not be liable to you if you are unhappy with the products or if they are defective, the wrong product, delivered late and so on. We therefore accept no liability for goods or services you purchase from our Vendors. This does not affect your statutory rights. Vendors make their own listings on the Website, they can upload their own photos and product descriptions and we do not check these for accuracy. If you are of the view that any information provided on the Website by any of our Vendors is inaccurate or misleading please let us know.
Whilst responsibility for a product or service bought on this website is that of the Vendor, we will try our best to respond to concerns and pass your comments to the Vendors. If you are unhappy with any part of the service therefore please contact us directly via firstname.lastname@example.org. We also operate a telephone service from Monday to Friday during 9am to 5pm and calls will be transferred to an answer phone at other times and a message left. We will process responses to emails within our operational hours from 9am to 5pm Monday to Friday. We will try to respond to all queries within 5 working days. If it is not possible to reply in full within this timescale, we will issue an interim response. If you are not happy with our response, please note you will have to take up the matter with the Vendor as your legal contract is with them and not with us.
