This website is owned and operated by E. H. Booth & Co Limited.
We may update or amend these terms and conditions from time to time to comply with legal requirements or to meet our changing business requirements by amending this page without notice to you. You are expected to check this page from time to time to take notice of any changes made. Such changes will be effective as soon as they are posted on this page. By continuing to access, browse and purchase products from this website, you agree to be bound by the terms of these updates and amendments.
These terms and conditions are governed by the laws of England and the courts of England will have exclusive jurisdiction with respect to any dispute arising under or in relation to them. No delay or failure by us to exercise any powers, rights or remedies under these terms will operate as a waiver of them, nor will any single or partial exercise of any such powers, rights or remedies preclude any other or further exercise of them.
If any condition of these website terms and conditions is found to be invalid by any court having jurisdiction, the invalidity of such provision shall not affect the validity of these remaining terms, which shall remain in full force and effect. No waiver of any term of this agreement shall be deemed a continuing waiver of such term or any other term.
A contract is formed between Booths and the customer when the customer receives their order confirmation email or print out in store. For the avoidance of doubt, a contract is not formed at the point in time that payment has been taken from you by Booths.
When the customer places their order at checkout, the customer formally accepts the delivery and/or collection dates and times specified.
Booths are not obliged to accept your order and may cancel your order if we cannot supply the goods for any reason.
All items are subject to availability and prevailing market conditions. Many products are supplied exclusively by small scale producers, therefore supplies are limited. We strongly advise you to order early to avoid any disappointment, as we know from previous years that items will sell out very quickly. Booths may limit the quantities of products (particularly those on special offer) available to any one customer if in our opinion the quantity ordered may jeopardise availability for other customers. We will inform you as soon as possible if the product ordered is not available.
Booths make every effort to ensure all products are in stock. However if an item required is not available for your store collection order, for whatever reason, we will offer a substitute item for the same or higher value, but you will never pay any more. If you wish, you can choose not to accept the substitution offered and alternatively accept a gift voucher or refund for the item in question.
If an item required is not available for your home delivery order, for whatever reason. The item will be refunded back to the original payment card and we will notify you of the shortage as early as possible.
All prices are displayed in pounds Sterling inclusive of UK VAT and duty where applicable unless expressly indicated otherwise. Any delivery charges are additional and the charges will be displayed before the point of payment.
Although we endeavour to ensure that all pricing on our website is accurate, occasionally an error may occur and goods may be incorrectly priced. In the event that you have ordered a product with an incorrect price we will contact you by email or telephone prior to despatching your order. You will be asked to confirm if you wish to proceed with your order at the correct price or cancel the product off your order. If you do not confirm that you wish to proceed with the order within 7 days of the date of our email or letter to you, we will consider this a cancellation of this product, remove it from your order and issue a full refund.
We reserve the right to alter prices without notice in the event of currency fluctuations, changes in the rate of duty, VAT, other taxes, or other market conditions. We also reserve the right to terminate any special offer at any time, without notice.
