If so, this will have been stated in the description of the cookery boxes on our website. We will contact you [in writing] to ask for this information. If you do not give us this information within a reasonable time of us asking for it, or if you give us incomplete or incorrect information, we may either end the contract) or make an additional charge of a reasonable sum to compensate us for any extra work that is required as a result. We will not be responsible for supplying the cookery boxes late or not supplying any part of them if this is caused by you not giving us the information we need within a reasonable time of us asking for it.
- Reasons we may suspend the supply of cookery boxes to you. We may have to suspend the supply of a product to:

- Your rights if we suspend the supply of cookery boxes. We will contact you in advance to tell you we will be suspending supply of the product, unless the problem is urgent or an emergency. If we have to suspend the product 6 weeks we will adjust the price so that you do not pay for cookery boxes while they are suspended. You may contact us to end your order for a box if we suspend it, or tell you we are going to suspend it, in each case for a period of more than 6 weeks and we will refund any sums you have paid in advance for the product in respect of the period after you end the contract.
- We may also suspend supply of the cookery boxes if you do not pay. If you do not pay us for the cookery boxes when you are supposed to (see clause 3) and you still do not make payment within 14 days of us reminding you that payment is due, we may suspend supply of the cookery boxes until you have paid us the outstanding amounts.

- When you become responsible for the goods. You will be responsible for the cookery box/boxes as soon as we deliver them to you. You will own the boxes once we receive payment in full for them.
8. Your rights to end your order or subscription
- Ending the contract because of something we have done or are going to do. If you are ending your contract for a reason set out at (a) to (e) below the contract will end immediately and we will refund you in full for any cookery boxes which have not been provided and you may also be entitled to compensation. The reasons are:
- we have told you about an upcoming change to the product or these terms which you do not agree to;
- we have told you about an error in the price or description of the product you have ordered and you do not wish to proceed;
- there is a risk that supply of the cookery boxes may be significantly delayed because of events outside our control;
- we have suspended supply of the cookery boxes for technical reasons, or notify you we are going to suspend them for technical reasons, in each case for a period of more than 8 weeks; or
- you have a legal right to end the contract because of something we have done wrong.
- Exercising your right to change your mind (Consumer Contracts Regulations 2013). For most cookery boxes bought online you have a legal right to change your mind within 14 days and receive a refund. If you purchase one of our subscriptions, you have 14 days starting from the day after your order to cancel your subscription to receive a refund. If you have purchased a subscription and paid in advance, we will refund you an amount equivalent to the months’ subscriptions which you have not yet received. Unfortunately, we cannot refund you for any cookery boxes which have been opened even if this is within the 14 day period.
- Ending the contract where we are not at fault and there is no right to change your mind. We hope you enjoy our cookery boxes and continue to stay with us. However, if you would like to cancel your subscription please just contact us. Where possible, please let us know by the 1st of the month to give us enough time to stop your next months’ payment. If you cancel after this date, we will not be able to stop the next months’ payment in time and therefore you will be charged for one more month and be provided with another subscription box before we cancel your order.

12. Price and payment
- Where to find the price for the product. The price of our boxes and subscriptions (which includes VAT) will be the price indicated on the order pages when you placed your order. We take all reasonable care to ensure that the prices displayed are correct. However, it is always possible that, despite our best efforts, some of the cookery boxes we sell may be incorrectly priced. We will normally check prices before accepting your order so that, where the product’s correct price at your order date is less than our stated price at your order date, we will charge the lower amount. If the product’s correct price at your order date is higher than the price stated to you, we will contact you for your instructions before we accept your order. If we accept and process your order where a pricing error is obvious and unmistakeable and could reasonably have been recognised by you as a mispricing, we may end the contract, refund you any sums you have paid and require the return of any goods provided to you.
- We will pass on changes in the rate of VAT. If the rate of VAT changes between your order date and the date we supply the product, we will adjust the rate of VAT that you pay, unless you have already paid for the product in full before the change in the rate of VAT takes effect.
- When you must pay and how you must pay. We accept all major debit and credit cards from customers in every country – Visa, Mastercard, Maestro, American Express. When you must pay depends on what product you are buying:
- For one off cookery box purchases, you must pay for the cookery boxes before we dispatch them. We will not charge your credit or debit card until we dispatch the cookery boxes to you.
- For monthly subscriptions, we will take payment by charging the card which you provided to us when you first purchased the subscription and paid for your first month.
13. Our responsibility for loss or damage suffered by you
- ***Important***Please read the recipe cards carefully. Each recipe card in our cookery boxes will contain a list of the ingredients needed. If your recipe contains an ingredient which your child is intolerant or allergic to, then it is your responsibility to use a safe and alternate substitute ingredient. We may suggest alternative ingredients on the card but you must ensure that these are also suitable for your child. We cannot be liable or responsible to you in this regard.
- We are responsible to you for foreseeable loss and damage caused by us. If we fail to comply with these terms, we are responsible for loss or damage you suffer that is a foreseeable result of our breaking this contract or our failing to use reasonable care and skill, but we are not responsible for any loss or damage that is not foreseeable. Loss or damage is foreseeable if either it is obvious that it will happen or if, at the time the contract was made, both we and you knew it might happen, for example, if you discussed it with us during the sales process.
- We do not exclude or limit in any way our liability to you where it would be unlawful to do so. This includes liability for death or personal injury caused by our negligence or the negligence of our employees, agents or subcontractors; for fraud or fraudulent misrepresentation; for breach of your legal rights in relation to the cookery boxes.
- We are not liable for business losses. We only supply the cookery boxes for domestic and private use. If you use the cookery boxes for any commercial, business or re-sale purpose we will have no liability to you for any loss of profit, loss of business, business interruption, or loss of business opportunity.
14. How we may use your personal information
15. Other important terms
- We may transfer this agreement to someone else. We may transfer our rights and obligations under these terms to another organisation. We will tell you in writing if this happens and we will ensure that the transfer will not affect your rights under the contract.
- You need our consent to transfer your rights to someone else (except that you can always transfer our guarantee). You may only transfer your rights or your obligations under these terms to another person if we agree to this in writing.
- Nobody else has any rights under this contract (except someone you pass your guarantee on to). This contract is between you and us. No other person shall have any rights to enforce any of its terms.
- If a court finds part of this contract illegal, the rest will continue in force. Each of the paragraphs of these terms operates separately. If any court or relevant authority decides that any of them are unlawful, the remaining paragraphs will remain in full force and effect.
- Even if we delay in enforcing this contract, we can still enforce it later. If we do not insist immediately that you do anything you are required to do under these terms, or if we delay in taking steps against you in respect of your breaking this contract, that will not mean that you do not have to do those things and it will not prevent us taking steps against you at a later date. For example, if you miss a payment and we do not chase you but we continue to provide the cookery boxes, we can still require you to make the payment at a later date.
- Which laws apply to this contract and where you may bring legal proceedings. These terms are governed by English law and you can bring legal proceedings in respect of the cookery boxes in the English courts. If you live in Scotland you can bring legal proceedings in respect of the cookery boxes in either the Scottish or the English courts.
