Terms of Sale
7.1 Products and Prices. Some of the Products featured on the Services are displayed for promotional purposes only and may not be available for purchase or may be out-of-stock. All Products offered for purchase are subject to availability and we reserve the right to impose quantity limits. In some cases, Products displayed for sale on the Site may not be available in stores or vice versa. Prices are subject to change without notice. Prices include applicable VAT (defined below), shipping and handling charges, or other fees, unless we clearly state otherwise or are required by law to display prices inclusive of any VAT charges and other fees. Prices posted on this Site may be different from prices offered by us at our stores.
We attempt to be as accurate as possible and to eliminate errors on our Services, and we do not represent or warrant that the descriptions, shipping time or other Product-related information is accurate, complete, reliable current or error-free. However, despite our best efforts, a small number of the items we offer may be mispriced. We will verify pricing when processing your order and before we take payment. If we have made a mistake and a product's correct price is higher than the price on the Services, we may either contact you before dispatch to request whether you want to buy the product at the correct price or cancel your order. If a product's correct price is lower than our stated price, we will charge the lower amount and send you the product. We make reasonable efforts to display as accurately as possible the colors and images of our products that appear online. We cannot guarantee that your computer monitor's display of any color will be accurate.
We may offer Products for pre-order, in which case we will make attempts to provide accurate estimated shipping times. However, such shipping times are not guaranteed, and we will endeavor to provide updates to you as soon as possible. In the event a Product you have ordered is out of stock, we will also make attempts to notify you of the updated shipping date when available.
7.2. Orders. Our presentation of Products shall not be considered a binding offer, but rather an invitation to place an order. Placing an item in your shopping cart does not constitute an acceptance of our offer or a conclusion of the sale. We will send you an order acknowledgement email detailing the products you have ordered—this is not an order confirmation or order acceptance from Our Place. In accordance with applicable law, we reserve the right, at our sole discretion, to cancel or refuse any order for any reason at any stage of the process prior to delivery, including after an order has been submitted. In such case, we will notify you in writing and will not charge you for the Product(s). Unless otherwise agreed to by Our Place, payment must be received by Our Place prior to acceptance of an order. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Our Place may in its discretion choose not to charge your selected payment method until your order has been shipped. Our Place may process payment for and ship parts of an order separately. We may require additional verifications or information before accepting any order. Order acceptance and the completion of the contract between you and us will take place on the dispatch to you of the Product(s) ordered unless we have notified you that we do not accept your order, or you have cancelled it in accordance with these Terms. The shipping confirmation email shall also serve as your order acceptance. Our Site is solely for the promotion of our products in the UK and we do not currently accept orders or deliveries to addresses outside the UK.
7.3 Promotions, Voucher Codes, Special Offers. All promotions, coupons, and other special offers (“Offers”) are subject to the terms and conditions of the associated Offer and may not be combined or used in conjunction with other Offers unless specifically permitted. Only one Offer may be used per order and such Offer is applicable to in stock items only, unless otherwise agreed to by Our Place. Our Place reserves the right to decline orders where it determines in its sole discretion the Offer or use thereof is invalid. Purchases using an Offer must comply with the terms to qualify for the Offer and may be subject to additional conditions than those contained in these Terms as provided to you in connection with the Offer. Offers are not redeemable for cash. Only Offers sent to you through official Our Place communications channels are valid. You agree that Offers: (i) must be used for the intended audience and purpose, and in a lawful manner; (ii) may not be duplicated, sold, or transferred in any manner, or made available to the general public (whether posted to a public forum or otherwise), unless expressly permitted by us; (iii) may be disabled by us at any time for any reason without liability to us; and (iv) may expire prior to your use.
7.4. Limited Edition. Our Place may occasionally offer variations of a Product in limited quantities (“Limited Edition Products”). Unless otherwise noted, Offers may not be applied to the purchase of Limited Edition Products. Limited Edition Products may look and perform differently than their standard counterpart. Replacement of Limited Edition Products is subject to availability and may be replaced with a Product of similar kind, in Our Place’s sole discretion.
7.5 Resale. Other than to our authorized corporate gifting and wholesale partners, we sell and ship Products to end-user customers only, and Our Place reserves the right to refuse or cancel your order, restrict sales to any customer or customer account, impose purchase quantity limits, suspend or close any account or take any other action we reasonably deem necessary, if we suspect you are purchasing products for resale or export. Products sold through the Services are not authorized for resale or export. The resale of or offer to sell a Product without the authority of Our Place is an infringement of Our Place’s intellectual property rights. Your submission of your order shall constitute your full acceptance of these restrictions on resale. Your purchase may not be sold, leased or transferred to restricted countries; to restricted end users; or for restricted end uses according to applicable export and sanctions laws of the United States and the United Kingdom.
7.6. Payment Information. For your convenience, we offer a wide array of payment methods to complete your purchase as indicated to you at the point of sale. By providing a credit card or other payment method that we accept, you represent and warrant that: (1) all payment information is accurate; (2) you are authorized to use the designated payment method; (3) you permit us (or our third-party payment processor) to charge your payment method for the total amount of your order (including any applicable VAT, shipping and handling charges (if any) and other charges); and (4) you have sufficient funds or credit available upon your initiation of a transaction to ensure that the purchase price will be collectible by us. If the payment method cannot be verified, is invalid or is otherwise not acceptable, your order(s) may be suspended or canceled. Please note that some credit card companies, banks and financial institutions may place an authorization or temporary hold on your account in connection with your purchase. Please contact your credit card companies, banks or financial institutions directly to inquire about any such authorization or hold.
7.9. VAT. To the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, you are responsible for any sales, use, value-added or other governmental taxes, fees or duties (collectively, "VAT") due with respect to your purchase and use of our Products and Services. Our Place collects VAT if we determine we have a duty to collect VAT based on the type of Product or Service purchased, date of shipment and the shipping address. If the rate of VAT changes between your order date and the date we supply the product, we may adjust the rate of VAT that you pay, unless you have already paid for the product in full before the change in the rate of VAT takes effect.
Customs policies vary widely from country to country, so you should contact your local customs office for further information. Your privacy is important to us and we would like our international customers to be aware that cross-border deliveries are subject to opening and inspection by customs authorities.
7.10. Shipping, Title Transfer, Risk of Loss, Delivery. You agree to pay any shipping and handling charges shown at the time you place an order. In accordance with applicable law, we reserve the right to increase, decrease, add or eliminate shipping and handling charges from time to time, but we will provide notice of the charges applicable to you before you make your purchase. Any delivery dates or times shown on our website or as part of the checkout process are estimates only and are not guaranteed. The number of days quoted for standard and express shipping refers to transit time only, additional time is required to process orders (typically 1-2 business days). Products may be delivered in multiple shipments. If you do not collect the Products from us as arranged or if, after a failed delivery to you, you do not rearrange delivery or collect them from a delivery depot we will contact you with further instructions and may charge you for storage costs and any further delivery costs. If, despite our reasonable efforts, we are unable to contact you or re-arrange delivery or collection we may end our contract with you. With the exception of products purchased or picked up at an Our Place store, title and risk of loss for products purchased from Our Place pass to you upon delivery to our common carriers, provided you have made full payment of the order amount (including Product price, delivery charges if any and any other charges payable under these Terms of Sale, if any).
7.11. Cancellation Right. You have the right to cancel your order without giving any reason within 14 days from the day on which you or a third party indicated by you (other than the carrier) receives the goods purchased (or last good or piece if it relates to goods or multiple pieces delivered separately) or from the day of the conclusion of the contract, in the case of services or digital content not supplied in a tangible medium. You must inform us of your decision to cancel your order by emailing us at email@example.com. We will communicate to you confirmation of receipt by e-mail and an authorization to proceed. To meet the cancellation deadline, it is sufficient for you to send your communication before the 14 days’ cancellation period has expired and return the item. For additional information on the scope, content, and instructions for the exercise of your right to cancel, please contact. Failure to follow these notification requirements will result in your request being denied.
If you cancel your order, we will reimburse all payments received from you for the goods purchased and will also reimburse delivery charges for the least expensive type of delivery offered by us. This reimbursement will be made without undue delay and, except in the situations described below, by no later than 14 days from the day on which we received your communication on the cancellation of the order. We will use the same means of payment as you used for the initial transaction, unless you have expressly agreed otherwise. In any event, you will not incur any fees as a result of such reimbursement. We may withhold reimbursement until we have received the goods back, or you have supplied evidence of having sent back the goods, whichever is the earliest. Where required by applicable law, if reimbursement occurs after the maximum time period mentioned above, the amount due to you will as of right be increased. Note that you must send back the goods without undue delay and in any case by no later than 14 days from the day on which you communicate your cancellation. You will have to bear the direct cost of returning the goods, unless otherwise provided in applicable law. You will only have to pay compensation for any deterioration of the goods if the value of the goods diminishes due to the handling of the goods (except when it was necessary to establish the nature, characteristics and functioning of the goods). At our discretion, longer return periods may be available as communicated to you via the website or in other communications from time to time. Please see our general return policy located here.
The right of cancellation does not apply to: (i) the delivery of products which are not suitable for return due to health protection or hygienic reasons if unsealed by you after delivery, or which are, after delivery, inseparably mixed with other items; (ii) the supply of goods made to your specifications or clearly personalized; (iii) the supply of goods which may deteriorate or expire rapidly; (iv) a service if we have fully performed it and you accepted when you placed your order that we could start to deliver it, and that you could not cancel it once delivery had started; and (v) the supply of digital content which is not supplied on a tangible medium if you accepted when you placed your order that we could start to deliver it, and that you could not cancel it once delivery had started.
7.12. Returns and Exchanges. Unless otherwise stated in the Our Place store (e.g., marked as “Final Sale”), you can return or exchange a Product in accordance with the terms of the return policy as posted on the website here. All gift card sales are final. We monitor returns activity for abuse and reserve the right to limit returns or exchanges in all instances. We are not able to offer returns or exchanges on behalf of our retail partners. If you purchase from a partner of ours be sure to review their return policy as it might differ from ours. Replacement of Products is subject to availability and may be replaced with a Product of similar kind, in Our Place’s sole discretion.
You have legal rights in relation to Products that are not as described, not of satisfactory quality, or otherwise not fit for purpose. If you believe that any Products that you have ordered do not conform with these Terms, please contact our Customer Support Team at firstname.lastname@example.org to request a replacement or refund. Advice about your statutory rights is available from your local Citizens' Advice Bureau or Trading Standards Office. If you wish to exercise such rights, you must return the products to us.
7.13. Third Party Products. From time to time, we may offer for sale Products manufactured, distributed, created, produced or otherwise provided to Our Place by third parties (“Third Party Products”). When you purchase a Third Party Product, you do so at your own risk. Our Place has no control over, and assumes no responsibility or liability for, Third Party Products.
7.14. Gift cards. If you purchase a gift card for yourself or someone else through the Services, your purchase will be subject to our Gift Card Terms. Our Place’s Gift Card Terms are incorporated by reference into, and made a part of, these Terms.
7.15. Referral Program. Our Place may, from time to time, offer our customers and users the opportunity to receive rewards toward future purchases from the Our Place website by referring other people. You acknowledge that you have read and understood the Our Place Refer a Friend Terms for information related to the referral program.
7.16. Corporate Gifting. If you purchase corporate gifts through the Services, it is your responsibility, and not Our Place’s, to ensure that your corporate gifting complies with all applicable laws and corporate policies.
8. Loyalty Programs
We may offer loyalty programs from time to time (“Loyalty Programs”). You will be provided with specific terms in connection with such Loyalty Programs, and your participation in Loyalty Programs will be subject to such terms. If you participate in our Dirty Dishes Loyalty Program, your participation is subject to our Dirty Dishes Loyalty Program Terms. To participate in Loyalty Programs, you may be required to create an account on the Services or to provide contact or other information about yourself. You may also be required to make a certain number of purchases or total amount of purchases to participate. We retain the right to revise our Loyalty Program terms at any time, in our sole discretion, and will provide notice of such changes in accordance with applicable law. We reserve the right to terminate your participation in Loyalty Programs if you no longer meet the applicable terms.
10. Links to Other Websites.
The Sites may contain links or references to other websites outside of our control. You acknowledge and agree that Our Place does not warrant, endorse, guarantee, or assume responsibility for (i) the availability, terms or practices of such websites, resources or services, or (ii) the content, products or services available on or through such websites, resources or services, including that any information provided is complete, accurate or up-to-date. Links to such websites, resources or services do not imply any endorsement by Our Place of such websites, resources or services or the content, products or services available on or through such websites, resources or services. You acknowledge sole responsibility for and assume all risk arising from your use of any such websites, resources or services or the content, products or services available on or through such websites or services.

WE WILL NOT BE HELD RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY FAILURE OR DELAY TO COMPLY WITH OUR OBLIGATIONS UNDER THESE TERMS IF THE FAILURE OR DELAY ARISES FROM ANY CAUSE WHICH IS BEYOND OUR REASONABLE CONTROL.
WE WILL MAKE REASONABLE EFFORTS TO ENSURE THAT AVAILABILITY OF THE SERVICES WILL BE UNINTERRUPTED AND THAT TRANSMISSIONS WILL BE ERROR-FREE. HOWEVER, DUE TO THE NATURE OF THE INTERNET, THIS CANNOT BE GUARANTEED. ALSO, YOUR ACCESS TO THE SERVICES MAY BE OCCASIONALLY SUSPENDED OR RESTRICTED TO ALLOW FOR REPAIRS, MAINTENANCE, OR THE DEVELOPMENT OF NEW SERVICES.
WE WILL NOT BE RESPONSIBLE FOR (I) LOSSES THAT WERE NOT CAUSED BY ANY BREACH ON OUR PART, OR (II) ANY BUSINESS LOSS (INCLUDING LOSS OF PROFITS, REVENUE, CONTRACTS, ANTICIPATED SAVINGS, DATA, GOODWILL OR WASTED EXPENDITURE), OR (III) ANY INDIRECT OR CONSEQUENTIAL LOSSES THAT WERE NOT FORESEEABLE TO BOTH YOU AND US WHEN YOU COMMENCED USING THE SERVICES. Loss or damage is foreseeable if it is obvious that it will happen, or if, at the time the contract was made, both we and you knew it might happen. We only supply the Products for domestic and private use. If you use the Products for any commercial, business or re-sale purpose we will have no liability to you for any loss of profit (direct or indirect), loss of business, business interruption, or loss of business opportunity.
To the maximum extent permitted by applicable law, our total liability to you for any loss or damage arising out of or in connection with the Terms or your order of Products from the Site, whether in contract, tort (including negligence) or otherwise shall be limited in respect of each claim to the purchase price of your order.
If you participate in an in-person or online Our Place experience (e.g., a cooking class or demonstration) (“Experience”), you expressly acknowledge that such Experience may involve risks such as physical injury or negative health impacts (e.g., food allergies). You expressly assume these risks if you participate in an Experience and acknowledge that you voluntarily choose to participate despite such risks. You further waive and release Our Place and its Representatives from any and all liability, claims, costs, and expenses of any kind and of whatever nature which may later accrue, caused by or arising directly or indirectly from your participation in an Experience, including, without limitation, any injuries suffered while participating in an Experience or practicing what you learned through Experiences on your own time, any injuries to other persons, and any property damage that may occur as a result of my engaging in an Experience, unless resulting from Our Place's negligence or willful misconduct.
THE LAWS OF SOME COUNTRIES DO NOT ALLOW SOME OR ALL OF THE LIMITATIONS DESCRIBED ABOVE. IF THESE LAWS APPLY TO YOU, SOME OR ALL OF THE ABOVE LIMITATIONS MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU AND YOU MIGHT HAVE ADDITIONAL RIGHTS.
NOTHING IN THESE CONDITIONS LIMITS OR EXCLUDES OUR RESPONSIBILITY FOR FRAUDULENT REPRESENTATIONS MADE BY US OR FOR DEATH OR PERSONAL INJURY CAUSED BY OUR NEGLIGENCE OR WILLFUL MISCONDUCT OR FOR ANY OTHER LIABILITY THAT, BY APPLICABLE LAW, MAY NOT BE LIMITED OR EXCLUDED OR FOR BREACH OF YOUR LEGAL RIGHTS WITH RESPECT TO THE PRODUCTS SUCH AS FOR DEFECTIVE PRODUCTS UNDER THE UK CONSUMER PROTECTION ACT.
12. Modification and termination
12.1 Modification of Services and Prices. Except where not permitted by applicable local legal requirements, Our Place reserves the right at any time to modify or discontinue, temporarily or permanently, the Services (or any part thereof), including the Products and their prices, with or without notice. Our Place shall not be liable to you or any third party for any modification, suspension, or discontinuance of the Services.
12.2 Termination. We may, in our sole and absolute discretion, terminate, suspend, or otherwise deny your access to all or part of the Services at any time for any or no reason at all, with or without notice to you. If we terminate your right to access the Services, these Terms will terminate and all rights you have to access the Services will immediately terminate; however, certain provisions of these Terms will still apply post termination, including without limitation, Section 11. Termination of your use or access to the Services may also include, at Our Place’s sole discretion, the deletion of your account and/or User Content, and you will not be able to retrieve any information related to your account except as required by applicable law. You agree that if your use of the Services is terminated pursuant to these Terms, you will not attempt to use the Services under any name, real or assumed.
12.3. Breach of the Terms. If we become aware of any possible violations of the Terms, or if we determine that you breaches any portion of the Terms, we reserve the right to (without limitation) also: refer the matter to and cooperate with any and all applicable legal authorities; disclose any information to law enforcement authorities as we reasonably feel is necessary and/or in order to comply with applicable law, legal processes or governmental requests; issue legal proceedings against you for reimbursement of all costs resulting from the breach (including, but not limited to, reasonable administrative and legal costs); issue a warning to you; investigate your behavior; and temporarily or permanently deactivate or suspend access to your Account or your right to use the Site. We exclude our liability for all action we may take in response to breaches of these Terms. The actions we may take are not limited to those described above, and we may take any other action we reasonably deem appropriate.
13. Text Messaging
If we conduct marketing in your jurisdiction using SMS messages, and you consent to receive repeat automated promotional and personalized marketing text (e.g. SMS and MMS) from Our Place and those acting on our behalf at the phone number you provide, these text messaging terms apply. These messages may include operational messages about your use of the Services, as well as marketing or other promotional messages.
You may opt-out of receiving marketing text messages at any time by texting STOP to any text message from us or sending an email to email@example.com, indicating that you no longer wish to receive marketing texts along with the phone number of the mobile device receiving the messages. You may continue to receive text messages for a short period while we process your request, and you may also receive text messages confirming the receipt of your opt-out request. You acknowledge that our text messaging platform may not recognize and respond to unsubscribe requests that do not include the “STOP” keyword command and agree that Our Place and its service providers will have no liability for failing to honor such requests. If you do not want to receive operational text messages from us, do not use the Services. If you unsubscribe from one of our text message programs, you further acknowledge that you may continue to receive text messages from Our Place through our other text message programs you may have joined until you separately unsubscribe from those programs. For example, if you unsubscribe from receiving promotional and marketing text messages, you may still receive text messages about your account or orders for transactional, operational, or informational purposes unless you unsubscribe from those text messages as described above, and even in such event you may still receive individual texts from our third-party delivery partners to enable successful delivery of your order. Text the keyword HELP to our shortcode to return customer care contact information.
Your agreement to receive marketing texts is not a condition of any purchase or use of the Services. Data and message rates may apply for SMS and MMS alerts, whether you send or receive such messages. Please contact your mobile network operator for details. Message frequency may vary.
