4. Price, Pricing Policy and Payment
4.1. All prices shown on the website are in £ sterling and are inclusive of VAT, where applicable. Prices may change and offers may be withdrawn at any time.
4.2. Although we try to ensure all our prices displayed on our website are accurate, errors may sometimes occur. If we discover an error in the price of an item you have ordered, we will contact you as soon as possible. You will have the option to reconfirm your Order at the correct price or cancel it. If we are unable to contact you, we may treat your Order, in respect of the incorrectly priced item, as cancelled.
4.3. The prices stated shall not include freight, which shall be borne by the Customer. The total amount as stated on the Order Confirmation shall be the total amount payable by the Customer for the Goods, including all taxes, levies and freight costs.
4.4. In order to enter into a Contract, you must possess a valid credit or debit card issued by a bank acceptable to us. When placing an Order, you undertake that all details you provide to us are true and accurate, that you are an authorised user of the credit or debit card used to place your Order and that there are sufficient funds to cover the cost of the Goods.
4.5. Upon receiving your Order, we may at our discretion carry out a standard pre-authorisation check on your payment card to ensure there are sufficient funds to fulfil the transaction. Goods will not be dispatched until this pre-authorisation check has been completed. Your card will be debited once the Order has been accepted.
5.1. The Goods will be delivered to the Delivery Location. Delivery will be deemed to have taken place when the Goods have been received by you (or another person identified by you) at the Delivery Location or, if you are collecting the Goods from us yourself, when you have collected the Goods.
5.2. Time of delivery shall not be of the essence of the Contract and any delivery or dispatch dates provided shall serve as an estimate only stated indication and not as a final deadline. We reserve the right to extend times for deliveries by reasonable periods if the delay is due to an event beyond our reasonable control.
5.3. Please note that we cannot guarantee specific delivery dates and therefore please allow up to 30 days for delivery. Where the supply of your Goods or services is delayed or prevented for reasons beyond our control (for example, material shortages, import delays or higher than anticipated demand) we will make every effort to keep you informed but shall be under no liability to you for such delay or failure. For the avoidance of doubt, this clause does not exclude or effect in any way any statutory right that is afforded to you to cancel an Order when a delivery of Goods is delayed or are not provided.
5.4. In any case, Melitta shall not be liable for damages resulting from non-delivery or late-delivery with respect to the delivery dates originally stated.
5.5. All deliveries must be signed for. If for any reason our Chosen Carrier is unable to deliver the Goods at the Delivery Location, the Chosen Carrier will leave a note informing you that the Goods have been returned to the Chosen Carrier's distribution centre, requesting that you contact them to arrange re-delivery. If the Customer fails to collect the parcel from the Chosen Carrier as notified in the delivery note and the Chosen Carrier returns the Goods to us, then we shall be at liberty to charge you for any delivery charges reasonably incurred.
5.6. The responsibility (sometimes referred to as the “risk”) for the Goods remains with us until delivery is complete at which point it will pass to you.
6. Risk and Title
6.1. Upon delivery of the Goods to the Delivery Location, risk shall pass to the Customer.
6.2. Upon payment in full for the Goods, ownership shall pass to the Customer.
7. Faulty, Damaged or Incorrect Goods
7.1. By law, we must provide goods that are of satisfactory quality, fit for purpose, as described at the time of purchase, in accordance with any pre-contract information we have provided, and that match any samples or models that you have seen or examined (unless we have made you aware of any differences). If any Goods you have purchased do not comply and, for example, have faults or are damaged when you receive them, or if you receive incorrect Goods, please contact us as soon as reasonably possible to inform us of the fault, damage or error, and to arrange for a refund, repair or replacement.
7.2. Beginning on the day that you receive the Goods (and ownership of them) you have a 30 days right to reject the Goods and to receive a full refund if they do not conform as stated above. Alternatively, you may request a repair of the Goods or a replacement. We will bear any associated costs and will carry out the repair or replacement within a reasonable time and without significant inconvenience to you. In certain circumstances, where a repair or replacement is impossible or otherwise disproportionate, we may instead offer you a full refund. If you request a repair or replacement during the 30-day rejection period, that period will be suspended while we carry out the repair or replacement and will resume on the day that you receive the replacement or repaired Goods. If less than 7 days remain out of the original period, it will be extended to 7 days. If, after a repair or replacement, the Goods still do not conform (or if we cannot do so as previously described, or have failed to act within a reasonable time or without significant inconvenience to you), you may have the right either to keep the Goods at a reduced price, or to reject them in exchange for a refund. If you exercise the final right to reject the goods more than six months after you have received the Goods (and ownership of them), we may reduce any refund to reflect the use that you have had out of the Goods.
7.3. Please note that you will not be eligible to claim under this clause 7 if we informed you of any faults, damage or other problems with the Goods before your purchase of them; if you have purchased the Goods for an unsuitable purpose that is neither obvious nor made known to us and the problem has resulted from your use of the Goods for that purpose; or if the problem is the result of normal wear and tear, misuse or intentional or careless damage. Please also note that you may not return Goods to us under this clause 7 merely because you have changed your mind. If you are a Consumer you have a statutory right to a 14 day cooling off period within which you can return Goods for this reason. Please refer to clause 8 for more details.
7.4. To return Goods to us for any reason under this clause 7, you may do so in person during our business hours of 8.30am - 5.00pm or you may return them by post or another suitable delivery choice to our Returns Address. You may alternatively request that we collect the Goods from you. Please ensure that the Goods are ready for collection at the agreed time and location which must be within the UK. We are solely responsible for collecting the Goods in this case, however we may appoint a third party carrier to collect them in which case we will provide you with all relevant details. We will be fully responsible for the costs of returning Goods under this clause 7 and will reimburse you where appropriate.
7.5. Refunds (whether full or partial, including reductions in price) under this clause 7 will be issued within 14 days of the day on which we agree that you are entitled to the refund.
7.6. Any and all refunds issued under this clause 7 will include all delivery costs paid by you when the Goods were originally purchased.

8.4. Please ensure you return the Goods to us in their original packaging. Although your statutory rights as a Consumer will not be affected, the Goods are second hand without the packaging and we may not therefore be able to process your return. You can take the Goods out of the packaging to check suitability, but don't throw it away and please return it with your Goods.
8.5. Refunds will be made for the original purchase amount against the original form of tender. Unless prescribed at law, postage or other return costs will be the Customer's responsibility except in the case of damaged, faulty or incorrectly supplied Goods.
8.6. None of the above terms affect your statutory rights or your rights under the Consumer Contracts Regulations 2013 (as amended or varied from time to time).

You may cancel your Contract and return the Goods to us for any reason under this right. In addition to your statutory right to cancel within 14 Calendar Days, we offer a further 14 days within which you may cancel for any reason, giving you a total of 28 days after the Goods come into your physical possession. If you wish to cancel your Order before receiving our Order Confirmation or if you wish to cancel the Contract after receiving the Order Confirmation but before We have dispatched the Goods, sub-clauses 8.8, 8.9, 8.14.4 and 8.16 will apply.
8.8. If you wish to exercise your right to cancel under this clause 8, you must inform us of your decision. You may do so in any way that is convenient to you. Please ensure that you inform us of your decision to cancel before the period in sub-clause 8.7 expires. (Note that the cancellation period is defined as whole calendar days. If, for example, you send us an email or a letter by 23:59 on the final day of the cancellation period, your cancellation will be valid and accepted.) We provide a cancellation form that you may use if you wish to inform us in writing. The cancellation form and accompanying instructions are available from our website at www.melitta.co.uk/cancellation/modelcancellationform. You may use the model withdrawal form, but it is not obligatory.

8.15.2. we will make no deductions for damage to delivery packaging (i.e. additional packaging into which we have placed the Goods in their original packaging such as bubble wrap and a brown box) but we may make deductions if the original packaging has been damaged (e.g. torn or otherwise unsealed in a way that would make it difficult or impossible to reseal the packaging and resell the Goods in “new” condition);
8.15.3. Standard Delivery charges will be reimbursed in full along with the price of the Goods, however we cannot reimburse any additional costs for Premium Delivery. If you chose a Premium Delivery option when you ordered the Goods, we will only reimburse the equivalent Standard Delivery costs as part of your refund.
