CONSUMER TERMS OF SALE
PLEASE READ THESE TERMS OF SALE CAREFULLY BEFORE PLACING YOUR ORDER AND RETAIN A COPY OF THESE TERMS AND YOUR ORDER FOR FUTURE REFERENCE
By placing your order you are agreeing to these terms and conditions.
Last Updated: 20th June 2017
1. Format of the Contract
1.1 These terms of sale apply to all goods supplied by Meadow Gifts.
1.2 No contract exists between you and the Supplier for the sale of any goods until the Supplier has received and accepted your order and the Supplier has received payment in full (in cleared funds). Once the Supplier does so, there is a binding legal contract between us.
1.3 By way of clarification, an acknowledgement of your order will be sent to you via e-mail when you place your order, but acceptance of your offer to buy the goods will not take place until after your payment is taken and you order has progressed in to the 'processing' stage as shown on the customer order page on our website. It is at this point that a binding legal contract is created and any contract is subject to these Terms and Conditions.
1.4 The contract is subject to your right of cancellation (see below).
1.5 The Supplier may change these terms of sale without notice to you in relation to future sales.
2. Description and price of the goods
2.1 The description and price of the goods you order will be as shown on the Supplier's website at the time you place your order.
2.2 The goods are subject to availability. If on receipt of your order the goods you have ordered are not available in stock, the Supplier will inform you as soon as possible and if you request we will refund or re-credit you for any sum that has been paid by you or debited from your credit card for the goods.
2.3 Every effort is made to ensure that prices shown on the Supplier's website are accurate at the time you place your order. If an error is found, the Supplier will inform you as soon as possible and offer you the option of reconfirming your order at the correct price, or cancelling your order. If the Supplier does not receive an order confirmation within 14 days of informing you of the error, the order will be cancelled automatically. If you cancel, the Supplier will refund or re-credit you for any sum that has been paid by you or debited from your credit card for the goods.
2.4 In addition to the price, you may be required to pay a delivery charge for the goods. Prices are clearly shown on our website before purchase. Not all delivery options are available for all products.
2.5 You need to be aged 18+ to purchase alcohol from our website. You may be asked to provide proof of your age before we dispatch this item. Failure to do so would lead to cancellation of your order. Delivery to the UK only.
3.1 Payment for the goods and delivery charges can be made by any method shown on the Supplier's website at the time you place your order. Payment shall be due before the delivery date and time for payment shall be of the essence.
3.2 There will be no delivery until cleared funds are received.
3.3 Payments shall be made by you without any deduction whether by way of set-off, counterclaim, discount, abatement or otherwise unless you have a valid court order requiring an amount equal to such deduction to be paid by the Supplier to you.
4.1 The goods you order will be delivered to the address you give when you place your order, except that some deliveries are not made outside the United Kingdom.
4.2 Orders placed with us will be processed as soon as possible. Once we process the items they will be delivered as per the requested delivery option on a date decided by us, provided no additional security checks are required and all stock items are available. (A working day is any day other than weekends and bank or other public holidays.)
4.3 If delivery cannot be made to your address for reasons under the Supplier's control the Supplier will inform you as soon as possible and refund or re-credit you for any sum that has been paid by you or debited from your credit card for delivery.

4.4.1 store the goods until actual delivery and charge you for reasonable costs (including insurance) of storage; or
4.4.2 sell the goods at the best readily obtainable price and (after deducting all reasonable storage and selling expenses) account to you for any excess over the price you agreed to pay for the goods or charge you for any shortfall below the price you agreed to pay for the goods.
4.5 If you fail to take delivery because you have cancelled your contract under the Distance Selling Regulations the Supplier shall refund or re-credit you within 30 days for any sum that has been paid by you or debited from your credit card for the goods, less any expenses incurred for failed delivery.
4.6 Every effort will be made to deliver the goods as soon as possible after your order has been accepted. However, the Supplier will not be liable for any loss or damage suffered by you through reasonable or unavoidable delay in delivery. In this case, the Supplier will inform you as soon as possible.
4.7 Time for delivery shall not be of the essence. The goods may be delivered by the Supplier in advance of the quoted delivery date.
4.8 Upon receipt of your order you will be asked to sign for the goods received in good condition. If you are unable to check the contents of the package at that moment in time please sign for the parcel as 'UNCHECKED'. Failure to do so may affect any warranty claims that you make thereafter.
4.9 Dispatch & deliveries will only take place on Weekdays, this does not include Weekends, Bank Holidays or any other Public Holiday. We will not refund your payment if there is a failure to deliver due to extreme weather, mechanical failure or other problems we have no control over.
5.1 The goods are at your risk from the time of delivery
5.2 Ownership of the goods shall not pass to you until the Supplier has received in full (in cash or cleared funds) all sums due to it in respect of:

The goods must be returned to the address on the 'Return to' label on the parcel. You must take reasonable care to ensure the goods are not damaged in the meantime or in transit. Please ensure that the goods are in excellent, unused condition or we may not refund you.

7.2 This warranty does not apply to any defect in the goods arising from fair wear and tear, wilful damage, accident, negligence by you or any third party, use otherwise than as recommended by the Supplier, failure to follow the Supplier's instructions, or any alteration or repair carried out without the Supplier's approval. Refunds will only be given on personalised items if they are faulty and at our discretion.
7.3 If the goods supplied to you are damaged on delivery, you should notify us by email or by phone within 48 hours, keeping all packaging. Failure to do this may make any insurance claim invalid!
