Terms of Sale
By placing an order You are offering to purchase a Product on and subject to the following Terms. All orders are subject to availability and confirmation of the order price.
You, the Customer, is responsible for ensuring that the terms of the order and any applicable specification submitted by Yourself is complete and accurate.
The Contract constitutes the entire agreement between You, the Customer, and Ben Gravy. You acknowledge that it has not relied on any statement, promise or representation made or given by or on behalf of Ben Gravy which is not set out in the contract.
Any samples, drawings, descriptive matter or advertising produced by Ben Gravy and any descriptions or illustrations contained in Ben Gravy’s catalogues or brochures or emails are produced for the sole purpose of giving an approximate idea of the goods described in the item. They shall not form part of the contract or have any contractual force.
We will have the right, at any time, to make changes to information about Products displayed on Our Site, for example information about prices, description or the availability of Products and We may do so without first giving You notice of the changes.
The inclusion of any Products on Our Site does not imply, warrant or guarantee that the Products will be available if You wish to place an order to offer to purchase it.
We may refuse to process a transaction for any reason or refuse service to anyone at any time at our sole discretion.
We reserve the right not to accept Your order in the event, for example, that We are unable to obtain authorization for payment, that shipping restrictions apply to a particular item, that the item ordered is out of stock or does not satisfy Our quality control standards and is withdrawn, or that You do not meet Our eligibility criteria.
Furthermore, We will not be liable to You or any third party by reason of Our withdrawing any Products from the Site whether or not those Products have been sold; removing, screening or editing any materials or content on the Site; refusing to process a transaction or unwinding or suspending any transaction after processing has begun.
In an effort to protect our customers, all orders placed via Our Site are screened and security checked for fraud. Orders randomly selected for security screening cannot be processed until we hear back from you so it is in your interest to include a valid telephone number and email address with your order so we can contact you if we need you to confirm certain elements of Your order which may include the billing or delivery address. We will never ask You for full credit / debit card details. Although it is rare that it would be necessary for Us to cancel an order, We reserve the right to refuse any orders from a customer where the following situations are applicable:
- Incorrect credit/debit card number, expiration date or security code.
- Incorrect billing information (billing information You provide is different from information Your credit card company/ bank has on record).
- Insufficient/incorrect shipping address (street, town/city, county or postal code).
- Fraudulent information.
We may cancel any order if fraudulent activity is suspected and may refuse to process subsequent orders from Customers with a previous fraudulent order history. If we are unable to contact You using the telephone number or email address that you have provided with your order within 3 days we reserve the right to cancel your order and give a full refund to the original card or credit card used.
All orders are subject to acceptance and availability.
Once an order is dispatched by us and it is claimed by the customer that it has not been successfully delivered the value for the item is then no longer eligible for a refund. The value is eligible for a gift voucher or to be resent the original item once again.
Orders placed by you are an offer to purchase and will be accepted by us subject to stock availability at the stated prices, and subject to your payment having been received by us in full. We require full payment for the goods before your order can be accepted. Once your payment has been received by us, we will send an email to your stated email address. This email is NOT an acceptance of your order. Dispatch will be arranged to your address. Dispatch times may vary according to availability and any guarantees or representations made as to delivery times are subject to any delays resulting from postal delays or force majeure for which We will not be responsible. Completion of the contract between you and Ben Gravy will be perfected when we dispatch the goods to you from our premises. You will be informed of this via a Dispatch Confirmation email. Once the item has left the Ben Gravy premises the title and ownership passes to the customer. At this point all risk is passed onto the customer and therefore Ben Gravy accepts no liability or responsibility for the product. Ben Gravy will supply the customer with receipt and proof of postage at this time, so if the customer wishes they may follow up any problems with the postal service. The sale contract is concluded in New Jersey, USA, and the contract language is English.
The sale of your order will appear on your credit card statement as Ben Gravy. We reserve the right to request additional proof of billing information. If you think the amount of a sale related to an order at Ben Gravy is incorrect, please email us.
Payment can be made by Visa, Visa Electron, MasterCard, Delta, and Maestro debit cards. Payment will be debited and cleared from your account upon receipt of your order by Ben Gravy.
You confirm that the credit/debit card that is being used is yours.
All credit/debit card holders are subject to validation checks and authorization by the card issuer. If the issuer of your payment card refuses to authorize payment to Ben Gravy, we will not be liable for any delay or non-delivery.
Furthermore, we will take all reasonable care, in so far as it is in our power to do so, to keep the details of your order and payment secure, but in the absence of negligence on our part we cannot be held liable for any loss you may suffer if a third party procures unauthorized access to any data you provide when accessing or ordering from the Site.
Ben Gravy will store a record of your transactions for a minimum of one year.
The Contract between You and Us is binding. You may not transfer or assign Your rights or obligations to another person without Our express agreement.
