4. Membership

The Site is available to registered users who are 18 years and older and who have not been suspended or removed by London Tea Club for any reason (a "Member"). We reserve the right to revoke your membership for any reason at any time including as a result of a violation of these Terms or the Privacy Policy, without notice. Where we revoke your membership, this will not affect current orders which we have acknowledged unless we revoke as a result of your breach of these Terms or the Privacy Policy or any other guidelines or rules, in which case we may terminate all existing orders and will not be obliged to make any refund. In event that we revoke your subscription membership, you will reimbursed any subscription fees on a pro rata basis. Membership is void where prohibited by law.

5. Orders and Contracts

Products and subscriptions may be ordered by clicking on the box or item you wish to purchase and then following the prompts that will appear on-screen. You may check and correct any input errors in your order up until the point at which you submit your order to us by clicking the "Submit Order" button on the checkout page.

Your order constitutes an offer to London Tea Club to buy a tea subscription or product. All orders are subject to acceptance by London Tea Club. London Tea Club is not obliged to accept your order and may, in its discretion, decline to accept any order. Where London Tea Club accepts your order, it will confirm such acceptance to you by sending you an email that confirms that the product has been dispatched.

By purchasing a month to month subscription, you acknowledge that your subscription has an initial and recurring payment feature and you accept responsibility for all recurring charges prior to cancellation. Your subscription will be automatically extended for successive monthly periods, at the original subscription rate. Your credit card will be charged on the 30th day of every calendar month. Any cancellations need to be done prior the 28th day of a calendar month to prevent the charge for that month. To cancel your subscription at any time, you must use the link in your welcome email or email us at hello@londonteaclub.com and we will do it for you. If you cancel, you may use your subscription until the end of the then-current month. London Tea Club may submit periodic charges (e.g., monthly) without further authorization from you, until you provide prior notice that you have terminated this authorization or wish to change your payment method.

The above cancellation rights do not affect your right to cancel under the statutory cooling-off period (see Section 6 below).

Prices include VAT and delivery costs (where applicable), which will be added when you view the items in your shopping basket. 

Your order will be fulfilled by the delivery date set out in the confirmatory email or, if no delivery date is specified, then within a reasonable time of the date of the order. You recognize, though, that occasionally because of problems sourcing stock from our suppliers or for other reasons beyond our control it is possible that orders may be delivered more than 30 days after the order.

We reserve the right to revoke your subscription at any time as a result of a violation of these Terms or the Privacy Policy. Membership is void where prohibited by law.

6. Consumer rights & cancellation

You may cancel an order and receive a refund at any time before your order is delivered and up to seven working days afterwards, beginning on the day after you receive the products. In this case, you will receive a full refund of the price paid for the products in accordance with the London Tea Club refunds policy (see below).

Each box subscription is for these purposes a single order, so for example you can only cancel a box subscription and receive a refund within seven working days of receiving the first monthly box. You can of course cancel any subscription at any time, but it is only if you do it within this initial seven day period that you will be entitled to a refund (as required by UK legislation known as the Distance Selling Regulations).

To cancel an order in this way, you must inform London Tea Club by email, giving us your name, address and order reference. You must also return the Products to London Tea Club within 14 days of notifying us of the cancellation, in the same condition in which you receive them (except to the extent reasonably necessary for you to examine them), and at your own cost and risk. You have a legal obligation to take reasonable care of the products while they are in your possession. If you fail to comply with this obligation, London Tea Club may have a right to claim the cost of any deterioration from you.

London Tea Club' refunds policy is: if you cancel an order within the seven-day cooling-off period (see above), London Tea Club will process the refund due to you as soon as possible and, in any case, within 30 days of the day you have given notice of your cancellation. London Tea Club will refund the price of the product in full, including the cost of delivery. However, you will be responsible for the cost of returning the item to London Tea Club. London Tea Club will usually refund any money received from you using the same method originally used by you to pay for your purchase.

7. Product Information; Limitation on Quantities

Excluding any content which may be submitted by Members from time to time, we strive to ensure that the information on the Site is complete and reliable. Certain information may contain pricing errors, typographical errors and other errors or inaccuracies which we may correct without liability. We also reserve the right to limit quantities purchased by Members and to revise, suspend, or terminate an event or promotion at any time due to inventory, shortages, or user breach (including after an order has been submitted and/or acknowledged). We do not guarantee that all products described on our Site will be available.

10. Disclaimers

London Tea Club is not responsible if you cannot access the Site properly or at all because your ISP connection, the Internet generally or your browser software is inadequate or functioning badly, or if your ISP suspends or terminates their service to you, or because of any other event outside London Tea Club control. If you cannot access the Site properly or at all because any of these reasons, London Tea Club will not refund any money you have paid or compensate you.

Making the Site enjoyable means London Tea Club needs to fix bugs, install updates and do general diagnosis and maintenance of the Site. London Tea Club will try to do scheduled maintenance during what London Tea Club anticipates will be relatively low levels of online use. London Tea Club also need to be able to do emergency maintenance and/or suspend access to the servers where, in London Tea Club's reasonable discretion, London Tea Club sees the need to do that. London Tea Club will try to have the Site available again as soon as London Tea Club thinks it is safe to do so.

The Site relies in part on software to work. Software has bugs. Whilst London Tea Club will monitor the Site and try to fix bugs that are made known to us, London Tea Club cannot guarantee that the Site will be bug-free or will work all the time. It is not a term of these Terms of Use that the Site or any individual feature of the Site will always be available, error free and/or free from viruses.

London Tea Club will not be liable to you over the entire period of your use of the Site for any loss in excess of (a) the total value of products or subscriptions ordered by you via the Site from time to time and (b) £250, whichever is the higher.
