Non-delivery and Redirection Fees Please ensure that the address details you supply are complete and correct.

Couriers apply significant fines and redirection fees to items that cannot be delivered due to incorrect or incomplete address details and to items that are not called for or arranged for redelivery within 5 days of the first attempt to deliver, so it is important that you ensure your address details are correct and that you promptly sort collection or redelivery of your items if required. Any fines, fees and subsequent redelivery costs are your responsibility and if we are required to incur these then we will be entitled to pass all related costs on to you.
Priority Deliveries are not normally made on weekends. If you wish to have your order delivered on a weekend please contact us for a quote.
Unfortunately we are not able to offer Courier Delivery to the Channel Islands.

If your order is damaged when you receive it please notify us as soon as possible and we will send you replacements for the damaged items.
If your order is returned to us due to insufficient or incorrect delivery information being supplied to us by you or through the goods being otherwise undeliverable through no fault of our own we may, subject to discretion, charge a redelivery cost equivalent to the cost of redelivery + a 20% administration fee. Please ensure that you give us correct postal information and that you accept delivery or collect your items in a timely manner to avoid redelivery costs.

The price of any products will be as quoted on the Website from time to time, except in cases of obvious error or technical difficulties or problems. Prices are given in pounds sterling (£) and all items include VAT or like taxes if and where applicable, with the exception of our carrier oils which are VAT exempt, but prices exclude delivery costs which may be specified individually in each of our offers or as outlined and detailed within our delivery / shipping & handling section.

Non-business customers very rarely need a tax invoice and the tax charged will vary according to the precise detail of your order including your delivery address so we do not provide a tax invoice as standard with any orders. The prices displayed at checkout or in email order confirmations are not tax invoices. If you need a tax invoice please contact us and we will be happy to produce one for you.
Our Website contains a large number of products and it is always possible that despite our best efforts and due diligence, some of the products listed on our Website may be incorrectly priced or presented. If a product’s correct price is higher than the price stated on our Website, we will normally, at our discretion, either contact you for instructions to confirm the difference before dispatching the product or reject your order and notify you of such rejection.
We are under no obligation to provide the product to you at the incorrect (lower) price, even after we have sent you an order confirmation email if the pricing error is obvious and unmistakable and could have reasonably been recognised by you as an incorrect pricing error.

Our Warranties and Our Liability to you
We warrant to you that any product purchased from us through the Website is of satisfactory quality and reasonably fit for all the purposes for which products of a similar kind are commonly supplied. However, where we offer products that have been supplied by a third party and that third party has provided its own product warranty, the warranty given by Natural and Organic Ltd. in the previous sentence shall be superseded by such third-party product warranty and responsibility for such third party products will lie with the third party supplier accordingly under such warranty and not with us (Natural and Organic Ltd. ).
We do not exclude or limit in any way our liability to you where it would be unlawful to do so.

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. However, 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. Loss or damage is not foreseeable if it was not obvious or if neither of us knew that it might happen.
We only supply the products for domestic and private use and we are not liable for any business losses. If you use the products for any commercial, business or re-sale purpose we will have no liability to you for any: (i) loss of income or revenue (ii) loss of business or business opportunity (iii) loss of profits or contracts (iv) loss of anticipated savings (v) business interruption or (vi) waste of management or office time.
