2. Terms and Conditions
2.1 Nothing in these terms and conditions affects your statutory rights.
3.1 All prices are inclusive of VAT within the United Kingdom and Republic of Ireland where appropriate. All prices are quoted in British pounds sterling (£ GBP) only.
3.2 The total value of your order including VAT and delivery charges will be displayed on the order confirmation screen. The displayed price is the amount in British pounds sterling (£ GBP) that you will pay. If you order by telephone, you will be notified by the operator of the amount payable.
3.3 Due to the fact that the TASSIMO Home Delivery Service is offered and managed by Koninklijke Douwe Egberts B.V, any payment for an online purchase may constitute an international transaction which may be charged by your bank with additional fees.
3.4 The minimum order we will accept is to the value of £25 (twenty five British pounds sterling).
3.5 Prices of the products and our delivery charges will be as quoted on our United Kingdom and Republic of Ireland web site at the point of ordering (subject to revision for errors).
3.6 Our Product prices and delivery charges are liable to change at any time. Any changes made to our Product prices and delivery charges after a Dispatch Confirmation has been sent out to you will not affect any order which you have already placed. A Dispatch Confirmation is explained in more detail at 6.1 below.
3.7 Our United Kingdom and Republic of Ireland web site contains a large number of products and it is always possible that, despite our best efforts, some of the products listed on our United Kingdom and Republic of Ireland web site may be incorrectly priced. We will normally verify prices as part of our dispatch procedures so that, where a Product's correct price is less that our stated price, we will charge the lower amount when dispatching the Product to you. If a Product's correct price is higher than the price stated on our United Kingdom and Republic of Ireland web site, we will normally, at our discretion, either contact you for instructions before dispatching the Product, or reject your order and notify you of such rejection.
3.8 We are under no obligation to provide the Product to you at the incorrect (lower) price, even after we have sent you a Dispatch Confirmation (see 6.1 below), if the pricing error is obvious and unmistakeable and could reasonably been recognised by you as an error.
4. Ordering & Payment
4.1 You can order our products in two ways:
4.1.1 on-line using our United Kingdom and Republic of Ireland web site www.tassimo.co.uk; or
4.1.2 by telephoning our United Kingdom Careline from within the United Kingdom, or our Republic of Ireland Careline from within the Republic of Ireland.
4.2 Please note, we are only able to accept money off vouchers issued through the TASSIMO Home Delivery Service.
4.3 We will endeavour to deliver all the products you order. In the unlikely event of any product being out of stock at the time we will notify you of this and hold your order until the missing item(s) is/are available. We will not deliver any part of your order until all the items you have ordered are in stock and available for delivery to you. This may affect the normal delivery schedule.
4.4 Whilst every effort will be made to ensure that all items shown in our on-line product catalogue are in stock we offer no guarantee of availability and our telephone service and this electronic publication does not constitute an offer for sale capable of acceptance by you submitting an order.
4.5 If ordering on-line, when we receive your order we will automatically send you an e-mail confirming acknowledgement of receipt of your order details ("Confirmation Email"). This Confirmation Email will be directed to the e-mail address you supplied to us upon placement of your order and is not a guarantee of availability nor acceptance of an offer.
4.6 If ordering over the telephone, once you have placed your order, you will be issued with a unique order reference number ("Unique Order Reference Number") - please quote this in case of any queries.
4.7 To ensure your order is dealt with promptly, we require your full, correct address details, including a postcode for the United Kingdom or a county for Republic of Ireland (as applicable), a day time contact telephone number and your e-mail address (if you have one). If you have a registration card, please also include your TASSIMO Unique Client Number which can be found on the front of your card. The billing address you provide to us must be the same as the billing address you have notified to and registered with your selected credit/debit card company or other payment services provider as this is used to validate your order. We regret that failure to supply the correct details will result in your order being held pending the supply of the correct details.
4.8 Your order will only be processed if full payment details are given.
4.9 We use a third party payment services provider to process payments. If you are placing your order using our United Kingdom and Republic of Ireland web site, the final step in the ordering process will result in your order being handed over to our payment services provider's web site for payment. You may pay using any of the payment methods listed on our payment services provider's page after your order is transferred to their web site for payment. If you are placing your order using one of our telephone carelines then the operator dealing with your order will advise you of the payment methods open to you and take your details. Your payment will still be processed using our third party payment services provider.
4.10 Your detailed payment information will be collected at the point you complete your order, however, our payment will be debited upon order dispatch. In some exceptional circumstances order dispatch may be delayed due to unforeseen circumstances, and in this situation, depending on your payment method, payment debit will occur 3 to 7 days after you placing the order. Debiting your payment does not represent acceptance by us of your order or otherwise commit us to a contract with you. Section 5 of these terms will govern how and when a binding contract is formed between you and us in relation to any order.
4.11 If you experience any difficulties processing your order or with payment, please call our United Kingdom Careline or our Republic of Ireland Careline. The careline numbers are listed in section 1.5 of these terms and conditions.
4.12 All orders are checked with the relevant payment provider prior to dispatch, so please ensure that the details you provide us with are correct. We cannot accept responsibility for an order being held back as a result of incorrect or invalid payment details being given.
4.13 All investigations for order traces will be implemented as soon as possible. Queries need to be directed to our United Kingdom Careline if dialling from within the United Kingdom and our Republic of Ireland Careline if calling from Republic of Ireland; you will need to quote your Unique Order Reference Number if you have ordered by telephone or your postcode if you have ordered using our United Kingdom and Republic of Ireland web site. The careline numbers are listed in section 1.5 of these terms and conditions.
