Online store terms of sale

  1. Overview
    1. In addition to our Terms of Use, these terms apply to all goods ordered via www.sussexcrisps.com (“our site”). By accessing our online store or placing an order with us, you engage in our “Service” and agree to be bound by the following terms and conditions (“Terms of Sale”).
    2. These Terms of Sale apply to all users of our site and the online store, including without limitation users who are browsers, vendors, customers, merchants, and/ or contributors of content. Please read these Terms of Sale carefully before accessing or using our online store. If you do not agree to all the terms and conditions, then you may not access the store or engage in our Service. We reserve the right to update, change or replace any part of these Terms of Sale by posting updates and/or changes to our website. It is your responsibility to check this page for any changes. Your continued use of or access to the store following any changes constitutes acceptance of those changes.
  2. Hosting of our store
    1. Our online store is hosted on WordPress and WooCommerce. WooCommerce provides us with the online e-commerce platform that allows us to sell our goods to you.
  3. Orders
    1. The display of goods on our site is an invitation (and not an offer) to sell goods to you. An offer is made by you to purchase our goods when you place an order. Although we take payment from you when you place your order (see clause 4), we must still process your order and card details.
    2. At all times our goods remain subject to availability. If we are unable to supply you with the goods you have ordered we will inform you as soon as possible. A full refund will be given if you have paid for the goods and we are unable to supply them.
    3. If you have provided us with a valid email address, we will send you an acknowledgement of your order and other updates. These emails are not confirmation or acceptance of your order. You acknowledge and agree that our acceptance of your offer (and therefore the creation of the contract between us) only occurs when we notify you that the goods you have ordered have been dispatched to you.
  4. Payment
    1. You will be asked to make payment at the time you place your order. Payment may be made by one of the methods provided at the time. For Orders under £200 you will be required to make payment through the Payment Gateway operated by Dojo. Dojo is a trading name of Paymentsense Limited. For orders over £200 we require a BACS payment and will be in touch to give you the details once the order has been placed.
    2. We will charge you the price for the goods at the time and date you place your order, subject to clause 4.c. All prices displayed on our site are inclusive of VAT (where applicable). A delivery charge (if applicable) may be applied at checkout and will be made clear to you.
    3. We endeavour to ensure prices are displayed correctly. In the event there is an error, we will contact you and seek confirmation that you still wish to purchase the goods at the correct price. If we are unable to contact you we will cancel the order. We will not accept an order if we determine (in our sole discretion) that there is a pricing error.
  5. General
    1. All risk in the goods we supply to you will pass to you upon delivery of the goods to the address specified in your order.
    2. Ownership of the goods does not pass to you until we receive full payment for the goods or delivery of the goods to the address specified in your order, whichever is later.
    3. The Sussex Crisp Company will not be liable for any indirect losses you may suffer, including but not limited to loss of profit or income as a result of our failure to comply with these terms or our negligence. Nothing in these Terms of Sale restrict our liability in respect of any death or personal injury caused by our negligence.
    4. These terms (in combination with any other terms referred to herein) constitute the entire terms on which we will provide goods to you and cancel and supersede any other arrangements and/or representations, whether verbal or written.
    5. You acknowledge that we may amend these terms from time (at our sole discretion) to time without notice to you. Any amendments will supersede the previous terms.
    6. If any one or more of the provisions of these terms should be held by any court, tribunal or administrative body of competent jurisdiction to be unenforceable or unreasonable, such provision will be validly restated to as nearly as possible approximate the intent of the provision and, if such provision cannot be restated for any reason, will be severable from these terms and deleted. The remaining provisions of these terms continue in full force and effect.
    7. No third party is entitled to enforce any of these terms whether by virtue of the Contract (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999 or otherwise.
    8. All matters concerning or incidental to these terms and our relationship with you are governed by laws of England and Wales and the English courts have exclusive jurisdiction in all such matters.
