Terms & Conditions
Use of the Online High Street website
Please note that when you decide to purchase goods the resulting legal contract is between you and the specific shop(s).
These terms and conditions do not affect your statutory rights.
We reserve the right to revise these Terms and Conditions from time to time. Please check periodically for changes. These Terms and Conditions were most recently updated on 31 October 2016.
To register with Online High Street you must be eighteen years of age or over or, if you are a business, you must be operated by a person over eighteen years of age.
It is your responsibility to ensure that the details provided by you on registration and at any time thereafter are complete and accurate.
Your account with Online High Street is not a credit account and payment will be required upon confirmation of your order.
It is your responsibility to keep your password confidential. You will be responsible for all activities and orders that occur or are submitted under your password. If you have any concerns that someone else knows your password, please contact us immediately.
The auto-login facility is provided for your convenience. We recommend that you logout manually whenever you leave the site.
We may require you to change your password or suspend or cancel your account if we have reason to believe that there is likely to be or has been a breach of security or misuse of the Online High Street website.
Each order you place for a product via the Online High Street website shall be deemed to be an offer by you to purchase the goods specified within it and carries with it the obligation to pay for it unless we receive from you a cancellation of or change to your orders before the published deadline for making changes to your order. We reserve the right to deliver and charge in full for any order unless we have received notice of cancellation before the published deadline.
At all times, acceptance of an order takes place on dispatch of the order, at which point the purchase contract(s) will be made between you and the relevant shop(s) and you will be charged for your order. You will receive confirmation by email that your order has been dispatched.
All products are subject to availability and market conditions.
For each item you order, you may select a substitute in the event that it is not available, request that the shop from which you are purchasing select a substitute for you (this will be the default option unless you specify otherwise), or opt to receive no substitute.
The price of the goods will be the price at the time your order is dispatched.
Where items are sold by weight, the price of these items will be the price on the date they are weighed. Any average weight guides on the website are for guidance only; the weight you receive may vary significantly from this guide and the price you will be charged will be for the weight of the product delivered.
The prices stated on the website are inclusive of any VAT payable.
We will make delivery to your address as stated when you set up an account or update that address. If you change address you must notify us so that we deliver to the correct address. Any changes to address details must be made before the order deadlines published on our website. You can do this on the My Account page of the website.
You are responsible for making suitable arrangements to receive your delivery and for giving us appropriate instructions. In the event that you instruct us to leave a delivery unattended at your address or fail to be present to receive the delivery, we disclaim all liability which may arise by virtue of the delivery being left unattended for a period of time. This includes but is not limited to theft, tampering, contamination and the result of any change in temperature in respect of items which need to be kept chilled or frozen.
We reserve the right not to deliver to all locations and to refuse to accept orders from any customer; considerations of delivery problems may give rise to such a refusal.
If we are unable to deliver to you, or have to deliver late, for reasons beyond our control, we cannot accept liability for any inconvenience or loss that this causes. You will of course not be charged for any goods that are not delivered to you.
You will not be charged for incorrect products or products which we have not delivered in accordance with these Terms and Conditions. Otherwise, our liability is limited to the price of the incorrect products or the products not so delivered.
You must inspect the products as soon as possible after delivery and notify us promptly if you find any defects. You will be refunded for any defective products or receive a replacement product. Otherwise, our liability is limited as provided in these Terms and Conditions.
You may request a refund once the delivery hour has passed and for 24 hours thereafter. We will investigate the issue and confirm with you whether your request has been successful.
Your order may include a charge for delivery. This will be shown to you as a separate charge before you confirm your order.
We accept payment by Mastercard, Visa, Maestro, Delta and Switch. We do not accept payments by cash or cheque.
In order to validate payment method, a pre-authorisation amount of £1.00 is debited from your account automatically when you check out. Upon validation, we will then redeem the full amount for your order. If you cancel your order, the pre-authorisation amount will be refunded to your account within approximately 2 working days. We reserve the right to terminate our agreement with you if we are refused authority for payment or reasonably believe that payment will be refused at any stage.
You agree to compensate us in full against all reasonable costs, expenses and outgoings incurred by us in obtaining payments from you in the event a failed payment occurs. This will include an administration charge of not less than £20. We may at any time after a failed payment has occurred ask a debt collection agency to collect payment from you.
Your credit card and payment details will be held by Stripe, our trusted and secure payment provider, who will store all data in an encrypted format. We will not keep a record of your card details on this site.
Credit card charge
In order to keep delivery charges as low as possible, we are obliged to pass on a credit card charge of £1.50. There is no charge to use a debit card.
Changes to and cancellation of orders
Except where specific products require additional notice, you may amend or cancel your order before the deadline notified to you by email when you place your order. Where products require additional notice, you may amend or cancel your order at any time prior to the deadline specified for ordering those products. We reserve the right to charge you in full for products where amendments or cancellations are made with less than the minimum notice required.
In respect of non-perishable items, you have the right to cancel the contract at any time until the expiry of the seventh working day after the date of delivery of the goods by notifying us by telephone or e-mail.
In the case of perishable items you do not have the right to cancel the contract. Should you wish to cancel your order after the cut-off period but prior to the time of delivery, we shall be entitled to charge you in full for an amount equal to the price of the perishable items contained in your order.
We will arrange with you for cancelled non-perishable goods to be returned to us, and we will credit your payment card with the price of such goods within a reasonable period from the day on which cancellation was given (provided payment has already been debited from your payment card).
Any specific terms and conditions applicable to special offers are provided with those offers. Unless otherwise stated or agreed, special offers will apply to orders of £40 or more. Unless otherwise stated or agreed, special offers will apply to orders made throughout the year other than to orders placed for delivery in the two weeks before Christmas. Free delivery on first orders will apply to orders made throughout the year other than during Christmas week.
