If we are unable to accept your order, we will inform you of this [in writing] and will not charge you for the product. 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.
We will assign an order number to your order and tell you what it is when we accept your order. It will help us if you can tell us the order number whenever you contact us about your order.


SECTION 4 - OUR PRODUCTS
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.
The packaging of the product also may vary from that shown on images on our website.


SECTION 5 - YOUR RIGHTS TO MAKE CHANGES
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.

We may make minor changes to the products and these terms:
    (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.
In addition, as we informed you in the description of the product on our website, we may make the following changes to these terms or the product, but if we do so we will notify you and you may then contact us to end the contract and receive a full refund before the changes take effect:
    (a)    Size of the product
    (b)    Colour of the packaging
    (c) Shipping charges

SECTION 7 -    PROVIDING THE PRODUCTS
The costs of delivery will be as displayed to you at checkout on our website, before proceeding with the payment. During the order process we will let you know when we will provide the products to you.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
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.
If you have asked to collect the products from our premises, you can collect them from us at any time during our working hours of 9-5, Monday to Friday, and only if previously arranged with the team of the Red Beetle Travelling Food Ltd.
If no one is available at your address to take delivery and the products cannot be posted through your letterbox, the mail service provider will leave you a note informing you of how to rearrange delivery or collect the products from a local depot.
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 contact you for further instructions and may charge you for storage costs and any further delivery costs. If, despite our reasonable efforts, we are unable to contact you or re-arrange delivery or collection we may end the contract and clause 10.2 will apply.
If you do not allow us or the mail service provider access to your property to perform the services as arranged (and you do not have a good reason for this) we may charge you additional costs incurred by us as a result. If, despite our reasonable efforts, we are unable to contact you or re-arrange access to your property we may end the contract and clause 10.2 will apply.
You have legal rights if we deliver any products late. If we miss the delivery deadline for any products then you may treat the contract as at an end straight away if any of the following apply:
    (a)    we have refused to deliver the products;
    (b)    delivery within the delivery deadline was essential (taking into account all the relevant circumstances); or
    (c)    you told us  before we accepted your order that delivery within the delivery deadline was essential.
If you do not wish to treat the contract as at an end straight away, or do not have the right to do so under clause 7.8, you can give us a new deadline for delivery, which must be reasonable, and you can treat the contract as at an end if we do not meet the new deadline.
If you do choose to treat the contract as at an end for late delivery under clause 7.8 or clause 7.9, you can cancel your order for any of the products or reject products that have been delivered. If you wish, you can reject or cancel the order for some of those products (not all of them), unless splitting them up would significantly reduce their value. After that we will refund any sums you have paid to us for the cancelled products and their delivery.  If the products have been delivered to you, you must post them back to us. We will pay the costs of postage or collection. Please email us at help@theredbeetle.com for a return label or to arrange collection.

We may need certain information from you so that we can supply the products to you, for example, delivery address and a contact number. If so, this will have been stated in the description of the products on our website. We will contact you [in writing] to ask for this information. If you do not give us this information within a reasonable time of us asking for it, or if you give us incomplete or incorrect information, we may either end the contract (and clause 10.2 will apply) or make an additional charge of a reasonable sum to compensate us for any extra work that is required as a result. We will not be responsible for supplying the products late or not supplying any part of them if this is caused by you not giving us the information we need within a reasonable time of us asking for it.
We may have to suspend the supply of a product to:
    (a)    deal with technical problems or make minor technical changes;
    (b)    update the product to reflect changes in relevant laws and regulatory requirements;

SECTION 8 -    YOUR RIGHTS TO END THE CONTRACT

When you don't have the right to change your mind.  You do not have a right to change your mind in respect of products sealed for health protection or hygiene purposes, once these have been unsealed after you receive them.
How long do you have to change your mind? How long you have depends on what you have ordered and how it is delivered.

        (i)    Your goods are split into several deliveries over different days. In this case you have until 14 days after the day you (or someone you nominate) receives the last delivery to change your mind about the goods.
        (ii)    Your goods are for regular delivery over a set period (for example every month).  In this case you have until 14days after the day you (or someone you nominate) receives the first delivery of the goods.
8.6    If you do not have any other rights to end the contract (see clause 8.1), you can still contact us before it is completed and tell us you want to end it. If you do this the contract will end immediately and we will refund any sums paid by you for products not provided but we may deduct from that refund (or, if you have not made an advance payment, charge you) reasonable compensation for the net costs we will incur as a result of your ending the contract.

Please email our customer service at help@theredbeetle.com  explaining the reasons behind your request and how you may want to proceed.  If you are exercising your right to change your mind you must send off the goods within 14 days of telling us you wish to end the contract.
We will pay the costs of return:

In all other circumstances you are responsible for the costs of return the goods to us.
We will refund you the price you paid for the products, by the method you used for payment. However, we may make deductions from the price, as described below.
If you are exercising your right to change your mind:
    (a)    We may reduce your refund of the price (excluding delivery costs) to reflect any reduction in the value of the goods, if this has been caused by your handling them in a way which would not be permitted in a shop. Visit our Shipping & Returns Page for information about what handling is acceptable and examples]. If we refund you the price paid before we are able to inspect the goods and later discover you have handled them in an unacceptable way, you must pay us an appropriate amount.
    (b)    The maximum refund for delivery costs will be the costs of delivery by the least expensive delivery method we offer. For example, if we offer delivery of a product within [3-5] days at one cost but you choose to have the product delivered within 24 hours at a higher cost, then we will only refund what you would have paid for the cheaper delivery option. This does not apply when the promotion “free delivery to orders withing the UK” is in place.
We will make any refunds due to you as soon as possible.  If you are exercising your right to change your mind then:

SECTION 11 - IF THERE IS A PROBLEM WITH THE PRODUCT
If you have any questions or complaints about the product, please contact us. You can write to us at help@theredbeetle.com.
We are under a legal duty to supply products that are in conformity with this contract. See the box below for a summary of your key legal rights in relation to the product. Nothing in these terms will affect your legal rights.

SECTION 12 - PRICE AND PAYMENT
The price of the product (which includes VAT) will be the price indicated on the order pages when you placed your order. We take all reasonable care to ensure that the price of product advised to you is correct. However, please see clause 12.3 for what happens if we discover an error in the price of the product you order.
If the rate of VAT changes between your order date and the date we supply the product, we will adjust the rate of VAT that you pay, unless you have already paid for the product in full before the change in the rate of VAT takes effect.
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, 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 unmistakable 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.]
We accept payment with major CREDIT AND DEBIT CARDS (MasterCard, Visa, Amex). You must pay for the products  right away. We will charge your credit or debit card  immediately, and dispatch the products within 24-48 hours. If you think an invoice is wrong please contact us promptly to let us know and we will not charge you interest until we have resolved the issue.

SECTION 13 - OUR RESPONSIBILITY FOR LOSS OR DAMAGE SUFFERED BY YOU
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, but we are not responsible for any loss or damage that is not foreseeable. 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 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.

SECTION 14 - HOW WE MAY USE YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION
We will use the personal information you provide to us:
    (a)    to supply the products to you;
    (b)    to process your payment for the products; and
    (c)    if you agreed to this during the order process, to inform you about similar products that we provide, but you may stop receiving these at any time by contacting us.

SECTION 15 - OTHER IMPORTANT TERMS
We may transfer our rights and obligations under these terms to another organisation. We will contact you to let you know if we plan to do this. If you are unhappy with the transfer you may contact us to end the contract within 30 days of us telling you about it and we will refund you any payments you have made in advance for products not provided.
You may only transfer your rights or your obligations under these terms to another person if we agree to this in writing. We may not agree, however, you may transfer our guarantee at clause 8.4 to a person who has acquired the product or, where the product is services, any item or property in respect of which we have provided the services. We may require the person to whom the guarantee is transferred to provide reasonable evidence that they are now the owner of the relevant item or property.
This contract is between you and us. No other person shall have any rights to enforce any of its terms, except as explained in clause 15.2 in respect of our guarantee. Neither of us will need to get the agreement of any other person in order to end the contract or make any changes to these terms.
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.
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.
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.
