If you are under 18, please do not attempt to order Products through our site.

2.3 As a consumer, you have legal rights in relation to Products that are faulty or not as described. Advice about your legal rights is available from your local Citizens’ Advice Bureau or Trading Standards office. Nothing in these Terms will affect these legal rights.
BASIS OF SALE
3.1 Our website is set-up to guide you through the steps you need to take to place an order with us. Our order process allows you to check and amend any errors before submitting your order to us. Please take the time to read and check your order at each page of the order process.
3.2 When you confirm and pay for your order, you offer to buy the Products at the prices indicated including any delivery charges that apply to your purchase.
3.3 After placing an order, you will receive an email from us acknowledging that we have received your order. However, please note that this does not mean that your order has been accepted. Our acceptance of your order will take place as described in the paragraph below.
3.4 We will confirm our acceptance to you by sending you an email that confirms that the Products have been dispatched (Dispatch Confirmation). The Contract between us will only be formed when we send you the Dispatch Confirmation.
3.5 If we are unable to supply you with a Product, for example because that Product is not actually in stock or no longer available or because of an error in the price on our site, we will inform you of this by email and we will not process your order. If you have already paid for the Products, we will refund you the full amount as soon as possible.
PAYMENT AND PRICES
4.1 The price of the Products and our delivery charges will be as quoted on the site at the time you submit your order and will be advised during the check-out process before you confirm your order. We take all reasonable care to ensure that the prices of Products are correct at the time when the relevant information was entered onto the system. However, if we discover an error in the price of the Product(s) you ordered, please see Paragraph 4.5 for what happens in this event.
4.2 The price of a Product is VAT inclusive (where applicable) at the applicable current rate chargeable in the UK for the time being. VAT receipts are available on request.
4.3 Product prices and delivery charges are liable to change at any time, but changes will not affect orders already placed.
4.4 Payment can be made using PayPal. Payment for the Products and all applicable delivery charges is in advance.
4.5 It is always possible that, despite our reasonable efforts, some of the Products on our site may be incorrectly priced. We will normally check prices as part of our dispatch procedures so that:
(a) where the Product’s correct price is less than the price stated on our site, we will refund the difference when dispatching the Products to you. However, if the pricing error is obvious and unmistakable and could have reasonably been recognised by you as a mispricing, we do not have to provide the Products to you at the incorrect (lower) price; and
(b) if the Product’s correct price is higher than the price stated on our site, we will contact you in writing by e-mail as soon as possible to inform you of this error and we will give you the option of continuing to purchase the Product at the correct price or cancelling your order. We will not process your order until we have your instructions. If we are unable to contact you using the contact details you provided during the order process, we will treat the order as cancelled and notify you in writing.
6.1 To UK mainland addresses, a single delivery of items other than large heavy orders (particularly wine and bulky homeware items) will be charged at £9.00 for pre-noon delivery and £16.00 for a pre-9am delivery which is for next day (from date of dispatch not date of order) courier service to ensure freshness of products. Some large heavy orders, particularly wine and bulky homeware items cannot be delivered using our next day £9.00 or £16.00 delivery service. Orders of this nature will be contacted to discuss alternative delivery methods and cost before order is dispatched. Please note, due to the delivery being by way of third party courier we cannot guarantee delivery before the specified time. Thornham Deli also cannot be held liable for failure to deliver due to circumstances beyond our control.
6.2 Delivery charges are for one delivery to any single mainland United Kingdom address. This excludes the Isle of Man, Northern Ireland, Scilly Isles, some remote areas of Scotland, and the Scottish islands. Some products, particularly fresh foods, may not be able to be sent to these locations due to transit times. If it is possible to arrange delivery to these areas due to the product in question, a surcharge may be payable for deliveries to these locations .
6.3 Thornham Deli does not offer an International Delivery Service for online orders. This includes deliveries to the Republic of Ireland and The Channel Islands. This is due to the fact that the nature of Thornham Deli products, being fresh and seasonal, require them to be delivered on time and to a cost favourable to customers. Unfortunately, international deliveries have previously been too unreliable and too costly and Thornham Deli had no option to but to suspend this service. You may place an order for Products from outside the UK, but this order must be for delivery to a UK mainland address.
6.4 Orders are usually dispatched within 2 working days from the date of the order being placed, the following being the average dispatch schedule:
In any event orders will be delivered within 30 days of the date of the Dispatch Confirmation (the date on which we email you to confirm our acceptance of your order), unless there are exceptional circumstances. In the event that we are unable to meet estimated dispatch dates because of exceptional circumstances, we will contact you with a revised estimated dispatch date.
6.6 Delivery will be completed when we deliver the Products to the address you gave us.
6.8 The Products will be your responsibility from the completion of delivery.
6.9 You own the Products once we have received payment in full, including all applicable delivery charge
6.10 If we miss the 30 day delivery deadline for any Products then you may cancel your order straight away if any of the following apply:
(a) we have refused to deliver the Products;
(b) delivery within the delivery deadline was essential (taking into account all the relevant circumstances); or
(c) you told us before we accepted your order that delivery within the delivery deadline was essential.
If you do not wish to cancel your order straight away, or do not have the right to do so under this paragraph, 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.
If you do choose to cancel your order for late delivery under this paragraph, you can do so for just some of the Products or all of them, unless splitting them up would significantly reduce their value. If the Products 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 products and their delivery.
To discuss delivery please contact Thornham Deli on firstname.lastname@example.org or 01485 512 194.
CANCELLATION AND RETURN
7.1 As a consumer, you have a legal right to cancel a Contract during the period set out in Paragraph 7.3 below. This means that during such period, if you change your mind or for any other reason you decide you do not want to keep a Product, 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.
7.2 However, this cancellation right does not apply in the case of any custom-made or personalised Products, any food and drink items given that are liable to deteriorate or expire rapidly or any long-life food and drink items where the seal has been broken, due to hygiene and healthy protection reasons.
7.3 Your legal right to cancel a Contract starts from the date of the Dispatch Confirmation (the date on which we email 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 in the table below:
YOUR CONTRACT END OF THE CANCELLATION PERIOD
Your Contract is for a single Product (which is not delivered in installments on separate days) The end date is the end of 14 days after the day on which you receive the Product.
Example: if we provide you with a Dispatch Confirmation on 1 January and you receive the Product on 10 January you may cancel at any time between 1 January and the end of the day on 24 January
Your Contract is for multiple Products which are delivered on separate days The end date is 14 days after the day on which you receive the last of the separate Products ordered
Example: if we provide you with a Dispatch Confirmation on 1 January and you receive the first of your separate Products on 10 January and the last separate Product on 15 January you may cancel in respect of any or all of the separate Products at any time between 1 January and the end of the day on 29 January
Your Contract is for the regular delivery of a Product over a set period The end date is 14 days after the day on which you receive the first delivery of the Products.
Example: if we provide you with a Dispatch Confirmation on 1 January in respect of Products to be delivered at regular intervals over a year and you receive the first delivery of your Product on 10 January, you may cancel at any time between 1 January and the end of the day on 24 January. 24 January is the last day of the cancellation period in respect of all Products to arrive during the year.
7.4 To cancel a Contract in accordance with your legal right to do so, you just need to let us know. The easiest way to do this is to complete the cancellation form on our website. A link to the website cancellation form will be included in our Dispatch Confirmation. If you use this method we will email you to confirm we have received your cancellation. You can also contact our Customer Services telephone line on 01485 512 194 or e-mail us at email@example.com or notify us by post to Thornham Deli, High Street, Thornham, Norfolk, PE36 6LX to tell us. If you are emailing us or writing to us please include details of your order to help us to identify it. If you send us your cancellation notice by e-mail or post, then your cancellation is effective from the date you sent us the e-mail or post the letter to us. If you call us to notify us of your cancellation, then your cancellation is effective from the date you telephone us.
7.5 If you cancel the Contract, we will:
(a) refund the price you paid for the Products. 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.
(b) refund any delivery charges you have paid, although, as permitted by law, the maximum refund will be the costs of delivery by the least expensive delivery method we offer (provided that this is a common and generally acceptable method). For example, if we offer delivery of a Product pre-noon but you choose to have the Product delivered pre-9am at the higher cost, then we will only refund what you would have paid for the cheaper deliver option;
(c) process the refund due to you as soon as possible and, in any case, within the following deadlines:
(i) if you have received the Product or we have dispatched it to you: 14 days after 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;
(ii) if we have not dispatched the Product: 14 days after you inform us of your decision to cancel the Contract.
7.6 If you have returned the Products to us because they are faulty or mis-described, we will examine the returned Product and will notify you of your refund via e-mail within a reasonable period of time. We will usually process the refund due to you as soon as possible and, in any case, within 30 days of the day we confirmed to you via e-mail that you were entitled to a refund. We will refund the price of a defective Product in full, any applicable delivery charges, and any reasonable costs you incur in returning the item to us.
7.7 We refund you via your PayPal account. If you used vouchers to pay for the Product we may refund you in vouchers.
7.8 If the Products were delivered or dispatched to you before you decide to cancel your Contract:
(a) you must return the Products 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 can send it back to our return address: Returns, Thornham Deli, High Street, Thornham, Norfolk, PE36 6LX.
(b) unless the Products are faulty or not as described (in this case, see Paragraph 7.6), you will be responsible for the cost of returning the Products to us.
7.9 Because you are a consumer, we are under a legal duty to supply Products that are in conformity with this Contract. As a consumer, you will always have legal rights in relation to Products that are faulty or not as described. These legal rights are not affected by your right of return and refund in this section or anything else in these Terms. Advice about your legal rights is available from your local Citizens’ Advice Bureau or Trading Standards office.

9.1 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.
