2.3. How we may contact you
If we have to contact you we will do so by telephone or by writing to you at the email address or postal address you provided to us in your order.
2.4. "Writing" includes emails
When we use the words "writing" or "written" in these terms, this includes emails.
3.1. How we will accept your order. Our acceptance of your order will take place when we dispatch your order, at which point a contract will come into existence between you and us. In some instances we may not be able to fulfil the whole of your order as placed. For example, we may only be able to dispatch some of your order or substitute certain items. In these circumstances we will try to contact you. If we are unsuccessful, we may still send an amended order to you. If we do, the dispatching of the order constitutes our offer, which you will have accepted two days after receiving the delivery unless you communicate your rejection to us in writing beforehand.
3.2. If we cannot accept your order. If we are unable to accept your order for any reason, we will contact you to inform you of this and discuss the possibilities for substitutes, late deliveries or refunds. This might be because the product is out of stock, because of unexpected limits on our resources which we could not reasonably plan for, because we have identified an error in the price or description of the product or because we are unable to meet a delivery deadline you have specified.
3.3. Your order number. We will assign an order number to your order and tell you what it is when you place your order. It will help us if you can tell us the order number whenever you contact us about your order.
3.4. We only sell to the UK and the rest of the EU. Our website is solely for the promotion of our products in the UK and the rest of the EU. Unfortunately, we do not deliver to addresses outside the UK and the rest of the EU.
4.1. Products may vary slightly from their pictures. The images of the products on our website are for illustrative purposes only. Although we have made every effort to display the colours accurately, we cannot guarantee that a device's display of the colours accurately reflects the colour of the products. Your product may vary slightly from those images.
4.2. Product packaging may vary. The packaging of the product may vary from that shown in images on our website.
If you wish to make a change to the product you have ordered please contact us. We will let you know if the change is possible. If it is possible we will let you know about any changes to the price of the product, the timing of supply or anything else which would be necessary as a result of your requested change and ask you to confirm whether you wish to go ahead with the change. If we cannot make the change or the consequences of making the change are unacceptable to you, you may want to end the contract (see clause 8- Your rights to end the contract).
6.1. Minor changes to the products
We may change the product:
(a) to reflect changes in relevant laws and regulatory requirements; and
(b) to implement minor technical adjustments and improvements, for example to address a security threat. These changes will not affect your use of the product.
7.1 Delivery costs
The costs of delivery will be as displayed to you on our website.
7.2 When we will provide the products
We will deliver the products to you as soon as reasonably possible and in any event within 30 days after the day on which we accept your order.
7.3 We are not responsible for delays outside our control
If our supply of the products is delayed by an event outside our control then we will contact you as soon as possible to let you know and we will take steps to minimise the effect of the delay. Provided we do this we will not be liable for delays caused by the event, but if there is a risk of substantial delay you may contact us to end the contract and receive a refund for any products you have paid for but not received.
7.4 Collection by you

7.5 If you are not at home when the product is delivered
If no one is available at your address to take delivery and the products cannot be posted through your letterbox:
(a) if the delivery is made by one of our drivers (for UK postcodes LS1-6 only), we will ring you to discuss an acceptable course of action. If we cannot reach you or cannot come to an acceptable arrangement, we will attempt redelivery the following day. We will do this up to two times. If, after two redelivery attempts, the delivery is unsuccessful, you will have to collect the goods from our premises. If you fail to do this in three days, we may cancel your contract.
(b) in any other scenario, the shipping company carrying out the delivery will deal with the shipment in accordance with their policy. This will usually involve taking the parcel to a delivery depot for collection or redelivery.
7.6 If you do not re-arrange delivery
If you do not collect the products from us as arranged or if, after a failed delivery to you, you do not re-arrange delivery or collect them from a delivery depot, we will treat your order as cancelled and end the contract. You will be refunded for the products when we receive them, but you will not be refunded the shipping fee.
7.7 When you become responsible for the goods
A product which is goods will be your responsibility from the time we deliver the product to the address you gave us or you or a carrier organised by you collect it from us.

Your rights when you end the contract will depend on what you have bought, whether there is anything wrong with it, how we are performing and when you decide to end the contract:
(a) If what you have bought is faulty or misdescribed you may have a legal right to end the contract (or to get the product replaced or to get some or all of your money back), see clause 11;
(b) If you want to end the contract because of something we have done or have told you we are going to do, see clause 8.2;

If you are ending a contract for a reason set out at (a) to (d) below, the contract will end immediately and we will refund you in full for any products which have not been provided. The reasons are:
(a) 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;
(b) there is a risk that supply of the products may be significantly delayed because of events outside our control;
(c) we have suspended supply of the products for technical reasons, or notify you we are going to suspend them for technical reasons, in each case for a period of more than two weeks; or

If you wish to exercise your legal rights to reject products you must either return them in person to where you bought them, post them back to us or (if they are not suitable for posting) allow us to collect them from you. Depending on the circumstances, we may pay the costs of postage or collection. Please call customer services on 0113 246 0388 or send us a message via the online form on our website at http://singkeefoods.co.uk/ to arrange collection.
12.1 Where to find the price for the product
The price of the product (which includes VAT) will be the price indicated on the order pages when you placed your order. We use our best efforts to ensure that the price of the product advised to you is correct. However please see clause 12.2 for what happens if we discover an error in the price of the product you order.
12.2 What happens if we got the price wrong
It is always possible that, despite our best efforts, some of the products 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.
12.3 When you must pay and how you must pay
We accept payment with Visa, MasterCard, Alipay and WeChat. You must pay for the products before we dispatch them.
12.4 What to do if you think an invoice is wrong
If you think an invoice is wrong please contact us promptly to let us know.
13.1 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. 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.
13.2 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 products as summarised at clause 11.2; and for defective products under the Consumer Protection Act 1987.
13.3 We are not liable for business losses
We only supply the products for domestic and private use. If you use the products 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.
14.1 How we may use your personal information
15.1 We may transfer this agreement to someone else
We may transfer our rights and obligations under these terms to another organisation.
15.2 You need our consent to transfer your rights to someone else
You may only transfer your rights or your obligations under these terms to another person if we agree to this in writing.
15.3 Nobody else has any rights under this contract
This contract is between you and us. No other person shall have any rights to enforce any of its terms.
15.4 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.
15.5 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 products, we can still require you to make the payment at a later date.
15.6 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 products in the English courts. If you live in Scotland you can bring legal proceedings in respect of the products in either the Scottish or the English courts. If you live in Northern Ireland you can bring legal proceedings in respect of the products in either the Northern Irish or the English courts.
