PLACING AN ORDER
When you place an order with us, you are making an offer to buy products. We will send you an e-mail to confirm that we have received your order.
In the unlikely event that the products are no longer available, or that we have made a pricing mistake, we will advise you of this and there will be no contract between us.
Images of products on this website are for illustrative purposes only. Your products may vary slightly from the image shown on the website.
Whilst we try to be as accurate as possible, all information provided is approximate and is provided in good faith.
This contract is covered by English law.

You will be required to pay for the products in full at the time of ordering.
When you submit your order on the The Kentish Chocolate Company’s website you will then be transferred to PayPal’s secure site to enter your payment details.
PayPal accepts most major credit and debit cards (or you can use your PayPal account, if you have one). At no time are your card details disclosed to The Kentish Chocolate Company.
You will receive an email from us acknowledging receipt of your order. Your order will not be processed until we have received confirmation from PayPal that your payment has been made.

Promotional prices only apply during the period stated.
All prices quoted on our website are in GBP (UK £).
Once your order has been confirmed, changes may not be possible or may incur additional charges or delays.

DELIVERY & CARRIAGE CHARGES
We only deliver within the UK.
The delivery charge is currently set at £3.00 flat rate per order.
Products will normally be dispatched within 5 working days of your order and payment being received by us.
Any dispatch date provided is an estimate, which can change without notice.
Products are delivered via Royal Mail and normally arrive within 1-2 working days of dispatch. Unfortunately this is not a guaranteed delivery service and so it may take longer.
Sometimes, for reasons beyond our control, such as accidents, breakdowns, fire, flood, storm, severe weather, acts of god, war, riot, civil commotion or malicious damage (this is not an exhaustive list) we may be prevented from dispatching your products as planned. We will endeavour to dispatch your products as soon as possible however we cannot be responsible where this causes a delay or failure in delivery.
Your order may arrive in more than one delivery.
We will deliver the products to the address you specify on your order.
We will not accept responsibility for loss or damage if the delivery company leaves the products unattended.
Please check the products on delivery – any products found to be missing or damaged should be notified to us via email within 24 hours.
All the products we supply are perishable and are therefore excluded from the provisions of the Distance Selling Regulations.
If you have made a mistake and wish to cancel your order, please contact us immediately via email (firstname.lastname@example.org), and if we have not yet begun to process your order we will arrange a refund.
You do not have to give any reason for cancellation. However, a brief explanation will help us to improve the service we offer to customers in the future.
We will refund all monies paid to us by you including any postage / carriage within 30 days, less any costs due under this contract.
This cancellation policy does not affect your legal rights.
RETURN OF DAMAGED ITEMS
All our products are dispatched in perfect condition, as we take the utmost care in wrapping them. If any items are unfortunately damaged in transit by circumstances beyond our control please contact us via email (email@example.com) to arrange their return and exchange.
If an exchange is necessary, this will be arranged without unreasonable delay and without additional charge. Replacement products will not be dispatched until the original products have been received and checked.
If an item is no longer available we will offer an alternative. However our liability will be to replace the damaged products only and we are unable to guarantee an exact match. In this instance you will have the option of a refund.
