Terms and conditions of use
1.1 This website is operated by Spicee Upp Limited ("we", "us" or "our"). By using the Spiceeupp.co.uk website you are bound by these Terms & Conditions. All use and purchases made on this website are governed by these Terms & Conditions at any time although the Terms & Conditions governing any given use or purchase will be those in effect at the date of your order or specific use. If you use or order goods after we have published any changes you will be bound by those changes. Accordingly, you should check prior to each use or order to ensure that you understand the precise Terms & Conditions applicable to your site visit or purchase. To assist you in determining whether the Terms & Conditions have changed since your most recent order we will display the date when these Terms & Conditions were most recently updated.
1.2 We sell goods only to end-users.
1.3 We will confirm your order when placed directly by using the spiceeupp.co.uk website. This will occur either by a message on the website immediately after you have confirmed your order, or by us sending an e-mail to the e-mail address you have provided to us. Or we may do both.
1.4 Please note that the order confirmation does not constitute our acceptance of your order. Subject to our cancellation rights in clause 11, acceptance of your order and completion of the contract will take place when we despatch the goods to you.
1.5 You must be 18 years old or over and must have completed the registration process in order to participate in our service.
1.6 The law places certain restrictions on transactions involving alcohol, and accordingly, alcohol must be either ordered by you or delivered by us during normal licensing hours. If you have ordered alcohol from us and cannot be at home at your selected delivery time, it is your responsibility to ensure that a suitable person is there to receive the order. We operate a “Challenge 25” policy, which means that if the person receiving delivery of alcohol looks under 25, we will request identification. We may also request identification in relation to other age-restricted products such as knives and DVDs. We may retain the products if proof of age or an alternative adult is not available.
1.7 If any of these Terms & Conditions is held by any court of competent authority to be unlawful, invalid or unenforceable, in whole or in part, this will not affect the validity of the remaining Terms & Conditions which will continue to be valid and enforceable to the fullest extent permitted by law.
1.8 These Terms & Conditions will be governed by English law and the parties submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of the English courts in relation to any dispute which may arise between them.

2.1a With the exception of goods referred to in clauses 2.1(b), but including goods from our butcher and fishmonger that are sold and priced by each (i.e. a fixed price per item) and packaged by us (as further identified on the website), the price of such goods will be as quoted on the website at the time you confirm your order (usually by clicking the "checkout" button) subject only to any inadvertent technical error for which we will not be liable. If you subsequently amend your order to add items, the prices charged for new products which were not in your original order will be the prices quoted at the time you confirm your amended order. However, if you add more of the same items which were in your original order, then the prices charged for these items will be the prices quoted at the time you confirmed your original order. Where a substitute item is offered in place of an item ordered, the price charged for that substitute item (if accepted) will be the price applicable at the time the item is substituted. Please note that as promotions are offered for a limited period of time subsequent amendments to your order may mean that certain promotions are no longer being offered.
2.1b For goods from our Butcher and Fishmonger (as further identified on the website), the price of these items (expressed per kilogram or other appropriate unit of measurement) will be the price as quoted on the website at the time you confirm your order (usually by clicking the "checkout" button) subject only to any inadvertent technical error for which we will not be liable. If you subsequently amend your order to add items, the prices charged will be those applicable to the new item(s) at the time that the amended order is confirmed. Although we have an indicative weight guide on the website, this is merely to assist your planning and the price you will be charged is the price of the actual weight you receive. In the event that there is a change in the price/kg between the time you confirmed your order and the time the item is weighed and priced by us, the price you will be charged will be the price at the time you confirmed your order.
2.2 The prices stated on the website will be inclusive of any VAT payable.
2.3 Each order you make may include a charge for delivery. If your delivery is subject to a delivery charge, it will be shown to you as a separate charge on the delivery confirmation page before you confirm your order. Any delivery charge added to your order will be dependent upon, amongst other things the date and time of your delivery and your delivery address and charges may vary from week to week. See section 4.9 for more information on delivery fees.
2.4 There is a minimum order requirement of £10 (excluding delivery charges) for every order placed. If the customer is using a money off voucher, the purchase of cigarettes, cigars, tobacco, postage stamps and infant formula will not contribute to the minimum spend.
3. ACCEPTANCE AND AVAILABILITY
3.1 If for any reason beyond our reasonable control, we are unable to supply a particular item, please note that we will attempt to deliver substitute lines should your preferred line be unavailable unless you specifically request us not to do so. For example, if you make an order for a brand of rice and it is unavailable, at your request we could deliver a substitute brand. We may still proceed to send you a substitute if we are unable to contact you.
3.2 Although we will always try to cater for your orders, an order of large quantities of a line can only be fulfilled at our discretion.
3.3 Your order is an offer to buy from us. Nothing that we do or state will amount to any acceptance of that offer until we actually dispatch the goods to you. A contract will be made between you and us the moment the goods are dispatched (and not before), and you have been charged for the goods.
4.1 Delivery times listed or stated are estimates only. We may use a third party delivery courier who may not be able to offer a specific delivery hour/ time. However Spicee Upp will notify you of your delivery date and also when your order has been dispatched. We may also provide you with a reference to track your order.
4.2 Estimated delivery days and times may be as specified on the delivery check-out page on the website and will be made to the address specified by you when you register on the website unless you change your delivery address at the check-out stage. We reserve the right to restrict deliveries in certain areas, and this includes the right to eliminate certain areas from our delivery schedule altogether.
4.3 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. In the event of non-availability of any goods you order, we may offer a reasonable substitute. This may affect the price you pay. It is our policy to identify any substitute items to you at the time of delivery and give you the opportunity to accept or reject the item at that time. However if we are unable to reach you by phone we may still proceed to send you the substitute.
4.4 We will always try to supply you with the full quantity that you have ordered. 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. In any event our liability will be limited to the price of the goods incorrectly delivered and the cost of delivery.
4.5 It is your responsibility to ensure that an appropriate person is available at the delivery address at all times during the delivery slot. We may ask that an appropriate person signs for the goods on delivery. If no one is at the address when the delivery is attempted the goods will be retained by us. We will leave notification of delivery and will telephone to attempt to rearrange the delivery.
4.6 Please note adverse weather conditions or other events outside of our reasonable control may result in the occasional late or cancelled delivery. If that is the case we will endeavour to contact you as soon as we are able to in order to reschedule your delivery time and date. In any event, our liability to you will be limited to the price of goods not delivered and the partial cost of delivery.
4.7 Should you fail to be present for your delivery we are entitled to charge you in full for an amount equal to the price of perishable items contained in your order and the cost of delivery.
4.8 Spicee Upp will ordinarily only make deliveries when an appropriate person is able to receive the delivery at the delivery address. If however there is no one to accept the delivery at your specified address, we will attempt to deliver to a near by neigbour or the delivery may be kept in a safe place at your address. In the event Spicee Upp leaves a delivery unattended at your address, Spicee Upp expressly disclaims 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 in respect of items which need to be kept chilled or frozen.
