Terms of order

These terms of order in no way affect your statutory rights as a consumer.

No contract will subsist between you and specialtycafetiere.com for the sale by it to you of any product unless and until specialtycafetiere.com accepts your order by e-mail confirming that it has dispatched your product. That acceptance will be deemed complete and will be deemed for all purposes to have been effectively communicated to you at the time specialtycafetiere.com sends the e-mail to you (whether or not you receive that e-mail). Items can not be bought for resale without prior permission. Specialtycafetiere.com reserves the right refuse any order which is deemed to have not been conducted in the correct way or where any foul play may have taken place. Items can not be bought for use in coffee competition with express permission of specialtycafetiere.com, and reserves the right to refuse to supply. Specialtycafetiere.com also retains the right to not complete any order it wishes to do so providing that the monies have not been taken or a full refund is given.
