If you need to correct any errors you can do so before submitting it to us. You will be informed of any deadlines for placing your order during the order process.
Once you have confirmed your order, created your account and made your payment, we will acknowledge your order confirmation by email. This acknowledgement does not mean that your order has been accepted.
Acceptance of your order
Order acceptance occurs when you receive an order confirmation email, once this order has been accepted this is the point our contract starts between you and Motherland Treats, which will be subject to these terms and conditions.
If we cannot accept your order
If we are unable to accept your order, we will inform you of this in writing or by phone and will not charge you for the Goods. This might be because the Goods are unavailable, because we cannot authorise your payment, or because of unexpected limits on our resources which we could not reasonably plan for. We may need to contact you to ask if you are happy for us to substitute some Goods in place of others subject to availability. Please see our section ‘Availability of Goods’ in these terms for more information.
Your order number
We will assign an order number to your order once your order has been accepted. Please have your order number to hand when contacting us to discuss your order.
We deliver our Goods throughout London and the M25 area at our discretion. Please visit our website www.motherlandtreats.co.uk

Although we have made every effort to display the colours accurately, we cannot guarantee that your device’s display of the colours accurately reflects the colour of the Goods. Your Goods may vary slightly from those images.
The packaging of the Goods may vary from that shown in images on our Website or in other promotional materials supplied to you.
Availability of Goods.
When you select your Goods on the Website, you will be asked to select your choice of produce from the list available. Whilst we will do our best to supply the Goods that you have chosen, please be aware that the Goods you actually receive will be based on what is in season and what is available that week. This is to ensure that the Goods you receive are the freshest and highest quality possible. We will confirm the change of products in your order confirmation. Should you wish to amend or cancel your order at this point then please follow the steps set out in the ‘Your Rights to Cancel’ section of these terms.

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.
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 including the right to receive products which are: as described and match information we provided to you; and of satisfactory quality.

How we will use your personal information.
OTHER IMPORTANT TERMS
Nobody else has any rights under the contract (except someone you pass your guarantee on to).
This contract is between you and us. No other person shall have any rights to enforce any of its terms.
If a court finds part of the 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.
Even if we delay in enforcing the 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 Goods, we can still require you to make the payment at a later date.
These terms (and any contract entered into subject to these terms) are governed by English law. In the event that you have any complaints that we are unable to resolve with you, we shall supply you with information regarding our alternative dispute resolution provider to resolve proceedings. You can bring legal proceedings in respect of the Goods in the English courts.
