Terms and Condition of Sale
Please note Gift Vouchers have supplementary terms and conditions, and these should be read in conjunction with the terms and conditions of sale below.
Acceptance of your Order
When you order on our website, you are submitting to us a binding offer to purchase the goods in your shopping bag f or personal usage or consumption, and we will do our utmost to fulfil this order to the service levels you expect. Orders can be reviewed and amended before purchasing so you should ensure that you have checked the order thoroughly before submitting it to us. Please note it is not possible to amend an order once it has been submitted. You will receive an Order Confirmation from us via e-mail which will be sent to the email address of the account holder. This Order Confirmation email acknowledges that we have received your order but does not constitute our acceptance of the order.
Acceptance of orders is at our discretion. When goods are dispatched, you will receive an e-mail confirmation and at the point of receipt of dispatch note, only then will the Contract be formed, and the Contract will relate only to those products detailed in the Dispatch Confirmation. We will inform you if an item you have tried to order is out of stock.
Any products or services on the same order that we have not yet confirmed via email will not form part of that contract and will form part of a separate contract when the remaining products have been dispatched, are ready for collection or, in respect of any services, begun. Placing an order does not constitute a contract with us until we confirm the products as dispatched, ready for collection or services begun.
We reserve the right not to accept your order for any reason whatsoever, including, but not limited to, payment problems, product availability and product price or description error.
Orders through our website and over the phone can only be placed if you are at least 18 years of age; are legally capable of entering into binding contracts; and you are a 'consumer' (being an individual purchasing the products outside the course of his or her business or trade). All items you order are to be for your own private and domestic use and strictly not for resale. You confirm and agree not to use any products for commercial, business or re-sale purposes when purchasing from us.
Once an order has been placed, you cannot go back and apply a promotional code to your order. If you incorrectly apply the promotional code when placing an order, we will be unable to reimburse you the discount once the order has been placed. If you are having any difficulties in applying a promotional code or believe the code to be faulty, please contact our customer services team on 01622 828994.
If, for any reason, there is a problem with collecting payment from your credit / debit card or other chosen payment method after we have confirmed receipt of your order, we will not be obliged to dispatch your order. Additionally, on some occasions, we may be unable to process an order. This may be due to: the item being out of stock or no longer available, your payment being declined, our identification of a pricing error or product description error or an unspecified technical error. If you are sure you are using a valid form of payment, please try again or use a different payment method.
We have a few different delivery options and timescales, and charges will vary dependent on the type of product or service ordered. Full details can be found on our Delivery & Returns page. Some items may be subject to different charges or timescales.
Risk in the products (e.g. damage or loss to the products) will remain with us until we deliver the goods to the address specified in your order or they are collected in store when the risk will pass to you immediately.
Provided you have notified us on the dispatch note that you wish to cancel your order under the Distance Selling Regulations, and the return also meets the terms of our returns and refund policy, you will be entitled to a full refund including delivery charges if applicable. We are unable to provide a refund of the delivery charges when only part of your order is being cancelled. Please see Cancellations for more information.
Due to orders being dispatched promptly, we are unable to cancel orders after you have received your order confirmation email.
If your order has already been sent out, you may still cancel your order under the Distance Selling Regulations, and to do so, simply return your order to us within 14 working days marking the returns code on your dispatch note as cancelled. Otherwise, you should follow our online refund policy.
Provided you have notified us on the dispatch note that you wish to cancel your order under the Distance Selling Regulations, and the return also meets the terms of our returns and refund policy, you will be entitled to a full refund including delivery charges if applicable. We are unable to provide a refund of the delivery charges where only part of your order is being cancelled. Please review our gift voucher cancellation policy on the Gift Voucher page.
If you wish to return your order outside of the cancellation time period specified above, please refer to our online refund policy. Where you have failed to take reasonable care of the goods, we reserve the right to refund you in full less any amounts due by way of compensation to either repair the goods or to cover any loss.
Returns, Exchanges and Refunds
Please see our Delivery & Returns section for details of how to return or
exchange our products. Nothing in these terms and conditions affects your legal rights as a consumer in respect of products which are faulty or not as described. Advice about your legal rights is available from the Citizens' Advice Bureau or Trading Standards.
With products purchased as part of a promotional offer or discount, the refund will be amended to reflect any failure to meet the original promotional requirements as a result of returning the product.
Returns can be made free of charge by using your free returns label (mainland UK only). With faulty goods, we will also refund to you the prevailing Post Office rate of second class postage or local equivalent to return the faulty item.
Items should be returned to us within 28 days of purchase. All items must be returned to us in the same condition you received them, and we may have a right of action against you for compensation if you do not comply with this obligation. Items should be returned with original packaging and tags wherever possible. All items returned are at your own risk so please ensure sure you obtain a 'proof of posting' from your Post Office or dispatch agent.
All goods returned to us are examined and refunds to which you may be entitled, will be processed as soon as possible. You will not hear from us unless there are any problems.
Refunds will be processed using the same method originally used by you to pay for your purchase. Exchanges will show on your account as a refund of the original product and a purchase of the new product - you will therefore see these as two transactions on your account.
See Gift Vouchers for separate terms and conditions.
Events Beyond Our Reasonable Control
We will not be held responsible for any delay or failure to comply with our obligations under these conditions if the delay or failure arises from any cause that is beyond our reasonable control. This condition does not affect your statutory rights.

In the case of notice being given to the email address provided, it will be deemed received and properly served 24 hours after an e-mail is sent, or three days after the date of posting of any letter. In proving the service of any notice, it will be sufficient to prove, in the case of a letter, that such letter was properly addressed, stamped and placed in the post and, in the case of an e-mail, that such e-mail was sent to the specified e-mail address of the addressee.
All written notices given by you to us must be given to The Able Label Limited at Customer Service, The Able Label Limited, 36 Rocks Close, East Malling, West Malling, Kent, ME19 6AE, or by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org
