items and a signature of the recipient will be required upon delivery. By placing an order for one
of these items you are declaring that you are 18 years of age or over and the age restricted items
are to be used and consumed responsibly.
Our third-party Couriers will endeavour to deliver or arrange delivery without undue delay of the

If circumstances occur which do not allow the delivery to occur within the delivery service
requested due only to the fault / delay of the courier, ie a ‘mis-delivery’, we will not refund the
difference of the value of the service not provided for.
Delivery charges made will be relevant to the delivery service required. We reserve the right to
change the service selected.
Delivery times may be affected if there are stock availability problems or other unforeseen
circumstances. No deliveries times are guaranteed due to external factors beyond our control

ship to PO Boxes within the UK or for international deliveries. Couriers are not able to redirect to
forwarding addresses if these are put in place.
Where specific courier instructions are given e.g. leave in porch, round the back etc, we will not
be held responsible or liable for goods not being received where our couriers or other couriers
have a POD (proof of delivery), or inform us that the ‘goods were left as instructed’. You are
therefore obliged to ensure that any specific courier instructions given are correct, and that the
information provided ensures a safe and accurate delivery. With any ‘signature optional’ or ‘leave
safe’ delivery your rights to claim damage, missing items and non-delivery are waived.

deliver the item to the specified address, the courier will retain the item/s. A calling card will be

arrange re-delivery. Please note that the courier company can only arrange a specific re-delivery
date, and cannot arrange a specific re-delivery time.

and a gift box is damaged, cannot be refunded.
All credits or refunds for unwanted items will be issued within 14 days after the goods have been
received back with us, other than the payments for delivery. Refunds for the goods received back
will not be issued where there are signs of tampering or damage which in any way diminish and
render the goods unsaleable.
For returns where the promotional “Free Delivery over £…” has been selected, if the whole
order is returned or where the return of an item or items takes the value of the order below £…
then the delivery will be charged for at the Standard Delivery rate. This will be deducted from
total amount of the refund due. For returns where a promotional item has been included, if the
return of an item that includes a promotional discount applied to all or part of the order, or a
promotional product is returned, then the discount applied will be deducted from the refund
due and/or the promotional item must be returned as well.

account or “special order” items.
