TERMS AND CONDITIONS RELATING TO SALES OF PRODUCTS
1 Contract Formation
You will indicate the products that you wish to order (“Products”) by confirming by telephone, email, fax, online via our website or letter; your delivery postcode, and the first line of your address with the order details and payment method confirmation. Your order shall constitute an offer to us to purchase the Products specified in the order. We may accept or decline the order. If we acknowledge your order that shall not constitute an acceptance of it. No order submitted by you shall be deemed to be accepted by us unless and until we confirm to you by email, letter or telephone call that the order has been fully processed and is being made ready for dispatch (the “Dispatch Confirmation”) to you (“Acceptance”). We shall at the same time notify you of the identifying number (the “Identifying Number”) for your order and you will be required to quote it in any subsequent communications. A contract will only be formed between us when we accept payment and dispatch your order; a tracking number for dispatched items is available on request.
2 Entire Agreement
Each order, Acceptance of each order and the supply of Products by us pursuant to an order shall be governed by these Terms. These Terms constitute the entire understanding between you and us in relation to any Products. They supersede any other terms stipulated by you, whether in any order or during negotiations or any course of dealing established between you and us.
All descriptions, illustrations and indications or price of Products provided by a telephone call or online order form or otherwise communicated to you are for guidance only and intended merely to present a general idea of the Products. Nothing contained in any such description, illustration or indication of price shall form any part of these Terms.
3 Price & Payment
The prices of the Products shall be those specified by us to you from time to time in accordance with the provisions set out in clause 1. Prices quoted by telephone or online are indicative only and are subject to change.
All prices are inclusive of United Kingdom VAT and inclusive of postage and packing to the extent stated below.
Prices may differ from prices seen in UK retail outlets.
You may pay by MasterCard, Visa, Visa Debit, Switch, Maestro, Solo and by cheque made payable to Naturediet Pet Foods Limited (see clause 8 below for details of our address). A charge of £10.00 shall be made to you for any returned or re-presented cheque used by you in settlement of any sums due under these Terms.
Products will only be dispatched once we have received full payment for the Products and all applicable postage and packaging charges from you.
4 Delivery and Availability
A summary of the postcode areas to which we will deliver and the corresponding delivery charges can be found in the Schedule to these Terms.
We will deliver Products via a courier or postal service of our choice (the “Carrier”) to the delivery address that you have given us. By accepting these Terms, you appoint the Carrier to be your agent for taking delivery of the Products on your behalf, and delivery to the Carrier shall be deemed to be delivery to you.
A charge reflecting the postage and packing costs will be made for any package returned to us by the Carrier as undeliverable, uncollected or for any other reason. Subsequent delivery of your order will be charged at our current rates for your order.
All deliveries are subject to availability and time shall not be of the essence. We will indicate to you whether or not a Product is currently “in stock” (i.e. available in our warehouse for dispatch) or our estimate of when the Product will be available for dispatch. However, this is an estimate only, should not be relied upon and may be subject to change. We are under no obligation to accept orders for a Product which is not currently in stock. If there is any delay, we will notify you of this and give you a new delivery time. As we process your order, we will notify you if any Products are unfortunately not available. If a Product is not immediately available for delivery we will either reject your order or it will be held and you will not be charged until the Products are dispatched.
If you are a consumer (i.e. a natural person who, in contracts to which the Consumer Contracts (Information, Cancellation and Additional Charges) Regulations 2013 apply, is acting for purposes that are outside his or her business – “Consumer”), we will endeavour to deliver Products ordered by you as soon as possible. If delivery within thirty (30) working days is not possible we will notify you of the delay and give you a new delivery time and/or you shall have the right to cancel your order and be entitled to a full refund for the Products (less any delivery charges incurred).
If you wish to order more than 20 cases of our Products (in aggregate), please contact our Customer Services team who will be happy to assist you. We are under no obligation to accept any order for more than 20 cases of our Products.

You must inspect the Products as soon as is reasonably practicable after delivery. If you fail to give notice in accordance with this clause, the Products shall be conclusively presumed to be in all respects in accordance with the order and free from any defect that would be apparent on reasonable examination, and you shall be deemed to have accepted the Products accordingly.
Subject to the conditions set out below, if you establish to our reasonable satisfaction that any Products are not in accordance with these Terms your sole remedy shall be limited (as we may elect) to (i) the replacement of the Products or (ii) a refund to you of the price of the Products and any delivery costs or, where sums are owed by you to us, the issue of a credit note or a credit card account refund against return of the Products.
