Summary: When you use FoodBox, you are entering into a legal agreement and you agree to all of these terms.
If you have any questions, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
We are an online marketplace for people to buy and sell locally produced food.
The Company is not a Producer and does not sell any Products.
The Company may facilitate the fulfilment of the delivery of Products purchased on the FoodBox Website, but is not a party to any transactions between customers and producers.
Whilst the Company tries to ensure that material included on the FoodBox Website is correct, it has no control over the quality, safety or legality of any aspect of the items listed, the truth or accuracy of the listings.
Although hopefully this will be a rare occurrence, there may be occasions when the FoodBox is unavailable to you.
Access to FoodBox is permitted on a temporary basis, and we reserve the right to withdraw or amend the services we provide through our products without notice. We shall not be liable to you for any losses, damages, costs or expenses arising from or in connection with any suspension or unavailability of the FoodBox products at any time or for any period.
We rely on third party providers (such as network providers, data centres and telecommunication providers) to make FoodBox products and the content therein available to you. Whilst we take all reasonable steps available to provide you with a good level of service, you acknowledge and agree that we do not warrant that the FoodBox products shall be uninterrupted or fault-free at all times. We shall not be liable in any way for any losses you may suffer as a result of delays or failures of the FoodBox products as a result of our service providers.
Registering with FoodBox
To order from the FoodBox products, users must first register with us. This is not a credit account, and payment will be required if products are ordered.
The FoodBox product services are available only to, and may only be used by, individuals who are 18 years and older and who can form legally binding contracts under applicable law. You represent and warrant that you are at least 18 years old and that all registration information you submit is accurate and truthful.
Password and Security
You will keep your password a secret. You are responsible for anything under your password.
When you register to use the FoodBox Website you will be asked to create a unique password. You must keep this password confidential and must not disclose it or share it with anyone. You will be responsible for all activities and orders that occur or are submitted under your password. If you know or suspect that someone else knows your password you should notify us by contacting us immediately at email@example.com. We would also suggest that you also change your password immediately through the Settings/ Accounts section of the FoodBox Website.
If we have reason to believe that there is likely to be a breach of security or misuse of FoodBox products, we may require you to change your password or we may suspend or cancel your account.
Purchasing Products on the FoodBox Website
Producers will do all that they can to ensure that your order is fulfilled. Products are, however, subject to availability, market and weather conditions and seasonal changes so there may occasions that a Product is not available for delivery. If Producers are unable to deliver an item you have ordered, you will not be charged for it. We will, however, bear no liability for unavailability of Products.
The images of the Products listed on the FoodBox Website are stock photographs used by Producers for illustrative purposes only. Although Producers will make every effort to be as accurate as possible, all sizes, weights, capacities, dimensions and measurements indicated on the FoodBox Website are for information purposes only.
You may submit orders for Products by using our online ordering facility on the FoodBox Website at any time after you have created an account. The facility and our communications to you in relation to any order or contract will be in the English language. The facility allows you to review your order and make any corrections before submitting it to us and by submitting the order you confirm that you have made any such corrections.
All orders must be made within the order deadlines specified on the FoodBox products.
Each Product for which you click 'Add to basket' is added to a 'shopping basket' facility. You are given the opportunity to review the quantity of order of each item in your shopping basket when you choose to check out. You can change these, or cancel the purchase of each of the Products completely, at this stage, at any time before clicking 'place order'.
Your submission of an order amounts to an offer to enter a contract to buy the Products from the individual Producers. Subject to the paragraph above, you cannot then withdraw or cancel your order except as stated above.
All prices for Products are inclusive of any applicable VAT.
For more information on ordering please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please note that delivery is only available in a limited area. Customer can check delivery area via Postcode checker on the FoodBox website,
If delivery is available to your postcode, we will make delivery to the address provided by you at checkout.
There may be costs involved in home delivery. If your delivery is subject to a delivery charge, it will be shown to you as a separate charge on the delivery confirmation page before you confirm your order. Any delivery charge added to your order will be dependent upon, amongst other things, the value of your order, the date and time of your delivery and your delivery address and charges may vary from week to week.
We always aim to deliver your goods within the delivery window, but we cannot accept liability if we deliver the goods outside of this window or don't deliver all or any of the goods in your order.
You are responsible for making suitable arrangements to receive your delivery and giving us appropriate instructions. In the event that your delivery is stolen from your doorstep or damaged while there, we do not accept liability, and will offer compensation at our discretion. We reserve the right to refuse to accept orders from any customer; considerations of delivery problems may give rise to such a refusal.
If we are unable to deliver to you, or have to deliver late, for reasons beyond our control, for example adverse weather conditions, strike actions, vehicle breakdown, traffic congestion or supplier failure, we cannot accept liability for any inconvenience or loss that this causes.
Please inspect the Products as soon as possible after delivery and notify us promptly if you find any defects, by mailing us on email@example.com We will replace or refund you for defective Products. Otherwise our liability is limited as provided in paragraph 15.
Cancelling your Order
In respect of non-perishable items, you have the right to cancel under The Consumer Contracts (Information, Cancellation and Additional Charges) Regulations 2013 (SI 2013/3134) (“CCRs”), the contract at any time until the expiry of the 14th working days after the day on which you receive the goods you ordered. Please note that you do not have a right under the CCRs to cancel orders in respect of food or other perishable items.
Any paid delivery charge will be included in your refund once we have received all (not part) of your order. Please note the delivery charge refund will be to the value of standard delivery. We will process your refund within 14 days of receipt of the returned products. You must take reasonable care of the goods while in your possession and they must be returned in a saleable condition such that they can be returned to the relevant Producer before we can issue your refund.
