Please read through the following Terms of Sale (“Terms”) carefully. They comprise the terms on which you are permitted to purchase items from Okko Chocco Ltd (“us”, also referred to herein as “we”) on this website (the “Website”). If you submit an order for any of the products (“Products” and each a “Product”) advertised for sale on this Website, this shall be taken to constitute acceptance by you of these Terms.
Formation of contract of sale
1. If you wish to purchase any of the Products for sale on this Website, you must submit a completed order form (your “Order”) on this Website. Your Order will not be accepted unless you place us in a position of being able to receive full payment for your Order at the time we accept it. If we agree to accept your Order, we will confirm this by email (the “Confirmation”) and will supply the Products you have ordered to you in accordance with the Confirmation and with these Terms.
2. The sale and purchase of Products via this Website will be governed by a contract between you and us formed when you have placed your Order, it has been accepted by us and we have sent you Confirmation of this (the ‘Contract’). Please note that, as soon as we confirm acceptance of your Order, it will enter our electronic system and we will be unable to prevent the Products so ordered being dispatched to you.
3. The terms of the Contract will comprise:
a. these Terms, as amended or updated by us from time to time; and
b. the prices (subject to clause 9 hereof) and other relevant information about Products published by us on this Website at the time the Contract is formed.
4. We reserve the right to change these Terms at our discretion, and will ensure that any changes will be posted to this Website. It is your responsibility to ensure, from time to time, that you are aware of any such changes. Changes will become effective 24 hours after first posting and you will be deemed to have accepted any change if you continue to shop on the Website after that time.
5. You acknowledge and agree that, in entering into a Contract, you do not rely on and have no remedy in respect of, any statement, representation, warranty or understanding (whether negligently or innocently made) of any person (whether party to the Contract or not) which is not expressly set out or referred to in the Contract. This is not intended to limit or exclude liability for fraud on our part.
6. We reserve the right to refuse to sell Products to you, at our discretion.
Orders and quotes
7. You acknowledge and agree that:
a. all information and specifications relating to the Products and any material produced by us and posted on this Website are approximate only;
b. we may correct any error in any unconfirmed Order, sales literature or other document or information issued by us or placed on this Website without any liability;
c. we may make any changes in the specification of Products we consider appropriate in order to conform with any applicable safety or other statutory or European Union requirements which do not materially affect the quality of such Products.
Right of withdrawal
8. Where you purchase Products on this Website for personal use and not for resale:
a. subject as stated below, you have the right to withdraw from the Contract at any time from the date on which we send you our Confirmation until 7 working days (being any days other than a Saturday, Sunday or other public holiday in England) after the day you receive the Products you ordered by giving us written notice of withdrawal by email or post;
b. you will be responsible for and will pay the cost of returning the said Products to us by the same method as they were delivered to you, and such return will be at your risk;
c. you cannot withdraw from the Contract where the Products in respect of which you wish to withdraw have been removed from the sealed packaging in which they were delivered;
d. if you withdraw from the Contract pursuant to this clause 8, we will credit your credit or debit card as appropriate for the price of the relevant Products as set out in clause 16 below, provided that the Products are returned to us in the condition they were in when delivered to you.
9. The price of each Product shall be the price that is quoted for that Product on this Website on the date you place your order, subject to any inadvertent pricing errors (whether technical or otherwise) by us, unless a special promotional price or other discounts are stated on this Website in respect of that Product.
10. Where a variety of discounts apply (though promotional offers and/or personal discounts available to you) only one discount can be used against each Product, and this Website will automatically apply the most advantageous discount to you, provided you enter all discounts to which you are entitled on the order form.
11. The price of any Product quoted on this Website:
a. is inclusive of any applicable Value Added Tax; but
b. excludes the costs of postage, packaging and delivery to the delivery address you specify in your Order and we acknowledge in our Confirmation (the “Premises”), which costs are as specified on this Website on the date of your Order and are payable by you in addition to the Product price.
12. The method of delivery and packaging applicable to the Contract will be those quoted on this Website on the date of your Order.

16. Any refund made pursuant to these Terms will be a refund of the price actually paid by you for the relevant Product and, except where specifically provided otherwise, will not include a refund of any postage, packaging or similar costs. For the avoidance of doubt, if you purchase a Product at a discount, we will only refund you the discounted price.
17. The time and method for delivery of Products purchased by you will be at our discretion and the place of delivery will be the Premises. Time for delivery shall not be of the essence.
