5. International Customers

6. Goods, Pricing and Availability
We make all reasonable efforts to ensure that all descriptions and graphical representations of goods available from us correspond to the actual goods that you will receive. Please note, however, the following:
• Images of goods are for illustrative purposes only. There may be slight variations in colour between the image of a product and the actual product sold due to differences in computer displays, lighting conditions, and the fact that foodstuffs will naturally vary in appearance.
• Images and/or descriptions of packaging are for illustrative purposes only, the actual packaging of goods may vary.
• While every care has been taken to ensure the product information shown on the website is correct, food products are constantly being reformulated and nutrition content may change. We would therefore recommend that you do not rely solely on this information and always check products labels.
• All food product descriptions provided on our site include a full list of ingredients and nutritional information. We will also indicate where a product is suitable for vegetarian and/or vegan customers and will clearly state if any food product contains (or may contain) any of the following which may cause allergies or intolerances (please note, however, that some or all of our food products are prepared in the same environment and we cannot guarantee that they will be 100% free of such ingredients):
Milk or lactose
Soya or soybeans
Where further dietary information is important to you, you should contact OliveOlive to be sure it matches your requirements.
Where appropriate, you may be required to select the required size, weight, number of the goods that you are purchasing.
We cannot guarantee that all goods will always be available. Stock indications are provided on our site, however such indications may not be accurate.
Minor changes may, from time to time, be made to certain goods between your order being placed and us processing that order and dispatching the food products, for example, to reflect changes in relevant laws and regulatory requirements. Any such changes will not change any main characteristics of the goods and will not normally affect your use or enjoyment of those goods. However, if any change is made that would affect your use or enjoyment of the goods, suitable information will be provided to you.
We make all reasonable efforts to ensure that all prices shown on our site are correct at the time of going online. We reserve the right to change prices and to add, alter, or remove special offers from time to time and as necessary.
Changes in price will not affect any order that you have already placed.
All prices are checked by us before we accept your order. In the unlikely event that we have shown incorrect pricing information, we will contact you in writing to inform you of the mistake. If the correct price is lower than that shown when you made your order, we will simply charge you the lower amount and continue processing your order. If the correct price is higher, we will give you the option to purchase the food products at the correct price or to cancel your order (or the affected part of it). We will not proceed with processing your order in this case until you respond. If we do not receive a response from you within 48 hours, we will treat your order as cancelled and notify you of this in writing.
In the event that the price of goods you have ordered changes between your order being placed and us processing that order and taking payment, you will be charged the price shown on our Site at the time of placing your order.
Delivery charges are not included in the price of goods displayed on our site. If your delivery is subject to a delivery charge, it will be shown to you as a separate charge 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 weight of your order and your delivery address. For more information on delivery charges, please refer to our Delivery Policy.
7. Orders – How Contracts Are Formed
Our site will guide you through the ordering process. Before submitting your order you will be given the opportunity to review your order and amend it. Please ensure that you have checked your order carefully before submitting it.
If, during the order process, you provide us with incorrect or incomplete information, please contact us as soon as possible. If we are unable to process your order due to incorrect or incomplete information, we will contact you to ask to correct it. If you do not give us the accurate or complete information within a reasonable time of our request, we will cancel your order and treat the contract as being at an end. If we incur any costs as a result of your incorrect or incomplete information, we may pass those costs on to you.
No part of our site constitutes a contractual offer capable of acceptance. Your order constitutes a contractual offer that we may, at our sole discretion, accept. Our acknowledgement of receipt of your order does not mean that we have accepted it. Our acceptance is indicated by us sending you an order confirmation by email. Only once we have sent you an order confirmation will there be a legally binding contract between us and you.
Order confirmations shall contain the following information:
• Your order number
• Confirmation of the goods ordered including full details of the main characteristics of those goods
• Fully itemised pricing for the goods ordered including, where appropriate, taxes, delivery and other additional charges
• Estimated delivery date(s)
In the unlikely event that we do not accept or cannot fulfil your order for any reason, we will explain why in writing. No payment will be taken under normal circumstances. If we have taken payment any such sums will be refunded to you as soon as possible.
Any refunds due under this Clause 7 will be made using the same payment method that you used when ordering the goods.
Payment for goods and related delivery charges must always be made in advance and you will be prompted to pay during the order process. Your chosen payment method will not be charged until we dispatch your food products.
We accept the following methods of payment on our site: Visa, Mastercard, Amex. Visa Delta, Maestro.
9. Delivery, Risk and Ownership
Delivery will be made to the address specified by you during the order process on the website. You have the ability to change this address with each order through the website, and you must do so if you move home so that we can deliver to the correct address. We reserve the right to restrict deliveries in certain areas, and this includes the right to eliminate certain areas from our delivery schedule altogether.
Products are subject to availability and prevailing market conditions. We may limit the quantities of goods (particularly goods on special offer) supplied to any one customer if in our opinion the quantity ordered jeopardises availability for other customers.
We will always try to supply you with the full quantity that you have ordered. If you are not satisfied with the quantity you have received we will arrange with you for goods to be returned to us (please note that the goods must not be used and must be in good condition). In the event that the goods delivered to you are incomplete or include incorrect goods, you must notify us promptly. You will not be charged for any incorrect goods or goods which you have not received.
Orders under £30 will be charged a set delivery rate. Orders over £30 will be delivered free of charge.
It is your responsibility to ensure that an appropriate person is available at the delivery address on the delivery day. An appropriate person may be asked to sign for all goods on delivery. If no one is available at your address to receive the goods when the delivery is attempted the goods may be left in a safe place. If no safe place is available we will leave a delivery note explaining how to rearrange delivery.
If you do not rearrange delivery within 48 hours, we will contact you to ask you how you wish to proceed. If we cannot contact you or arrange redelivery, we will treat the contract as cancelled and recover the goods. If this happens, you will be refunded the purchase price of the goods themselves, but not the cost of delivery. We may also bill you for any reasonable additional cost that we incur in recovering the goods.
We will ordinarily only make deliveries when an appropriate person is able to receive the delivery. In the event that you instruct us to leave a delivery unattended at your address we expressly disclaim all liability which may arise by virtue of the delivery being left unattended for a period of time. This includes but is not limited to theft, tampering, contamination and the result of any change in temperature.
Delivery shall be deemed complete and the responsibility for the goods will pass to you once we have delivered the goods to the address you have provided.
Ownership of the goods passes to you once we have received payment in full of all sums due (including any applicable delivery charges).
Any refunds due under this Clause 9 will be made using the same payment method that you used when ordering the goods.
OliveOlive reserves the right to amend delivery and collection fees at any time without notice.
10. Faulty, Damaged or Incorrect Goods
By law, we must provide goods that are of satisfactory quality, fit for purpose and as described at the time of purchase.
If any goods you have purchased do not comply as stated above and, for example, are damaged when you receive them, or if you receive incorrect (or incorrectly priced) goods, please contact us at email@example.com within 7 days of delivery of the goods to inform us of the problem, and to arrange for a refund or replacement.
Please note that you will not be eligible to claim under this Clause 10 if we informed you of the fault(s), damage or other problems with the goods before you purchased them (and it is because of the same issue that you now wish to return them); if you have purchased the goods for an unsuitable purpose that is neither obvious nor made known to us and the problem has resulted from your use of the goods for that purpose; or if the problem is the result of misuse or intentional or careless damage. Please also note that you may not return goods to us under this Clause 10 merely because you have changed your mind. Please refer to Clause 11 for more details.
To return goods to us for any reason under this Clause 10, please read our Returns Policy. We will be fully responsible for the costs of returning goods under this Clause 10 and will reimburse you where appropriate.

11. Cancellation & Returning Goods if You Change Your Mind

Edible items such as olive oil and halloumi cheese are ‘sealed products’ that are not suitable for return once they have been unsealed due to health protection and hygiene reasons. Therefore, we cannot accept returns of these goods for exchange or refund under this Clause 11. However, your statutory rights concerning the quality of those products will be unaffected.

Please note that you must bear the costs of returning goods to us if cancelling under this Clause 11.
Any refunds under this Clause 11 will be issued to you within 14 calendar days of the following:
• The day on which we receive the goods back
• If we have not yet provided an order confirmation or have not yet dispatched the goods, the day on which you inform us that you wish to cancel the contract
Refunds under this Clause 11 may be reduced for any diminished value in the goods resulting from your excessive handling of them (e.g. no more than would be permitted in a shop).
Refunds under this Clause 11 will be made using the same payment method that you used when ordering goods.
