- If we cannot accept your order. If we are unable to accept your order, we will inform you of this in writing and will not charge you for the product. This might be because the product is out of stock, because of unexpected limits on our resources which we could not reasonably plan for, because we have identified an error in the price or description of the product or because we are unable to meet a delivery deadline you have specified.
- Your order number. We will assign an order number to your order and tell you what it is when we accept your order. It will help us if you can tell us the order number whenever you contact us about your order.
- Unfortunately, we are unable to ship orders outside the United Kingdom and Southern Ireland
- Age restrictions. We only sell to people aged 18 years or over and able to enter into a legally binding contract.
9) Our Products
- The product information provided on the Website has been published in good faith and Kind Earth will do its best to ensure that it is accurate. However, occasionally, such information may be incorrect, out of date or incomplete owing to human error or circumstances beyond our control. Where product information is incorrect owing to human error or circumstances beyond our control, Kind Earth reserves the right to reject the order insofar as it relates to the affected products or where the order has already been accepted, not to supply the affected products. In such event Kind Earth will notify you and will not charge you for affected products.
- The images of the products on our website are for illustrative purposes only. Although we have made every effort to display the colours accurately, we cannot guarantee that a device’s display of the colours accurately reflects the colour of the products. Your product may vary slightly from those images.
- The packaging of the product may vary from that shown in images on our website.
10) Your Rights To Make Changes
If you wish to make a change to the product you have ordered please contact us. We will let you know if the change is possible. If it is possible we will let you know about any changes to the price of the product, the timing of supply or anything else which would be necessary as a result of your requested change and ask you to confirm whether you wish to go ahead with the change.
11) Our Rights To Make Changes
Products are sold by us subject to availability and prevailing market conditions. In the event that a product you order is unavailable we may offer a reasonable substitute or refund to you the amount charged for the unavailable item. In the event that we provide you with a reasonable substitute we will notify you in writing and you will have the opportunity to accept or reject this item upon delivery. In the event that you reject the substitute you may return this to us at no cost and we will refund the value of the product to you. We are unable to offer a substitute of chilled or frozen products.
12) Providing The Products
12.1.1 When we will provide the products we will deliver your order to the address specified by you during the order process.

12.1.2 Delivery costs. The costs of delivery will be as displayed to you on our website.
12.1.3 We are not responsible for delays outside our control. If our supply of the products is delayed by an event outside our control then we will contact you as soon as possible to let you know and we will take steps to minimise the effect of the delay. Provided we do this we will not be liable for delays caused by the event, but if there is a risk of substantial delay you may contact us to end the contract and receive a refund for any products you have paid for but not received.
12.2.4 If you are not at home when the product is delivered. If no one is available at your delivery address to take delivery of your order, our couriers may not return your order to a local depot for collection or attempted redelivery. They will leave this in as ‘safe’ a place as possible, but if you live in flats or any house that does not have a secluded place for the parcel to be left, you accept that it may be left at your front door in plain view of passersby. We accept no responsibility for parcels which go missing or are tampered with as a result of you being unavailable to accept delivery. Our couriers will take a photograph of any parcels left in a ‘safe place’ to evidence delivery.
7.2.5 In the event that you select an alternative delivery option following submission of your order (i.e. an option offered directly by your courier once the package is in transit for example to leave your order with a neighbour or in a safe place), you do so entirely at your own risk. We do not accept liability for any losses you may incur as a result, e.g. theft, tampering, contamination and the result of any change in temperature in respect of chilled or frozen goods.

13.5 Ending the contract where we are not at fault and there is no right to change your mind. Even if we are not at fault and you do not have the right to change your mind (see clause 13.2), you can still end the contract before it is completed, but you may have to pay us compensation.
