2. Make A Contract With Us

2.1 When you place an order with us, you are agreeing to purchase goods from us. We will send you an email to confirm that we have received your order & payment.

2.2 Once we have received your order it will be passed to our dispatch team who will pick and pack your order, the time scale of this will vary depending on the delivery method you selected during checkout. When your order is dispatched you will receive another email (and text message) from us confirming this.

2.3 In the unlikely event that the goods are no longer available, or that we have made a pricing mistake, we will advise you of this, refund you in full and there will be no contract between us. We have a high tech stock control system in place so this should rarely occur.

2.4 Images of products on this website are for illustrative purposes only. Due to the natural origin and production of most of our products they may vary from the image/s shown on the website and indeed from each other. They will not include any of the pictured accessories, unless stated in the specification of the goods.

2.5 We have made every effort to display as accurately as possible the colours of our products that appear on this website. However, we cannot guarantee that your monitor’s display of any colour will accurately reflect the colour of the actual product. Furthermore see point 2.4 for the natural variation found in most of our products.

2.6 Whilst we try to be as accurate as possible, all information provided is approximate and is provided in good faith.

2.7 This contract is covered by English law.

2.8 By placing an order with us, you agree to and accept these terms, as well as our privacy policy and the terms of website use.

3. How To Place An Order

3.1 You can use our website to place a one off order or subscribing. Items you do not require can be removed from your basket at any time before purchase.

3.2 You will be required to pay for the goods in full at the time of ordering.

3.4 We use secure payment processing for online purchases. You can pay for your order by visa, mastercard or most other debit/credit cards. Pets Approve Ltd does not receive or store any payment information.

3.5 Promotional prices are subject to availability.

3.6 All prices quoted on our website are in UK pounds sterling and include value added tax at the current rate. 3.7 Once your order has been placed, changes may not be possible or if they are, these may incur additional charges or delays.

4. Delivery & Carriage

4.1 Goods will normally be dispatched from our warehouse on the same working day Mon – Thursday if ordered before 12 noon. Orders after 12 noon will be dispatched the following day Mon – Thursday. Orders after 12 noon on a Thursday will be dispatched from the following Monday. Any estimated dispatch date is an estimate, which can change without notice. Delivery estimates do not take into account non-working days – Saturday, Sunday or Bank Holidays. There will be no deliveries on these days (except for where Saturday delivery is added at additional cost by the customer.)

4.2 Our 3rd party couriers (DPD) will deliver goods within 24 hours of dispatch.

4.3 Your order may arrive in more than one delivery.

4.4 We can deliver anywhere in mainland Great Britain. Unfortunately we do not deliver to any islands, Northern Ireland, or to areas classified as Highlands/Islands of Scotland by the courier company.

4.5 We will deliver the goods to the premises you specify on your order. You must be at home to accept delivery of your order, which is normally between 8:00am and 7:00pm Tuesday-Friday. or be happy for your order to be left in the mandatory safe place specified at the checkout. We will not accept responsibility for incorrect postal addresses provided by the customer or consequences of leaving the items where requested.

In addition, if the delivery driver cannot access your safe place (e.g. inside a block of flats when no one is there to open the door) and does not leave the items as a result – we cannot accept any claims if the order is taken back to the depot and delivered at a later date/destroyed.

We will not accept responsibility for loss, damage, or spoiling of goods if you instruct the delivery company to leave the goods unattended.

4.6 All courier deliveries are sent on a 24 hour service and packed in insulated boxes to make sure they reach you in tip top condition but please note that in some cases, particularly in warmer months or in areas where transit times are longer the contents may have thawed partially. This does not affect the quality of the products in any way and you can safely refreeze them in your freezer. For this reason we cannot accept any claims based on this where the items have been delivered the next working day after dispatch. This includes if you reschedule your delivery with the courier (which we strongly advise against), or the place you have requested them to leave your order is unavailable or unsuitable.

If the courier leaves your item in the safe location you requested or because that location is unsuitable leaves it elsewhere, then you as the customer are then responsible for collecting it from that location.

In the rare event that the courier does not deliver within the 1 day timeframe they are supposed to, we would encourage you to still check your items, because they may still be frozen enough to refreeze. In the event of this happening even though it is the courier at fault, we ask you to contact us if you are unhappy and we will do our best to offer a solution.

If you refuse delivery we are unable to offer a refund/replacement. Even if the parcel has been mistreated by the courier we need you to accept it as normal and take photos of the packaging and contents to send to us along with a description showing why the items are unacceptable/unusable. This is because in the process of it being returned to us the package and products will degrade further and by the time we get it back we will not be able to make an honest assessment of what condition the goods were in when you received them.

4.7 Disposal of packing materials is your responsibility.

4.8 If you change the delivery address once the goods have been dispatched to you, we reserve the right to pass on any extra charges made by our carriers for redirecting your delivery. Whilst we and our couriers will try our best to ensure delivery, we cannot accept any claims if not delivered to the new address successfully under any circumstances where the change was requested by the customer after ordering.

4.9 You must never request that the courier (DPD) change your delivery day. As our items are perishable, DPD are within their rights to destroy them if not delivered when scheduled by us. we cannot accept any claims where the customer has changed the delivery day.

4.10 You must never refuse the delivery under any circumstances. Even on the rare occasion a delivery takes longer than anticipated to arrive, there is a high probability that most or at least some of the order is perfectly good to use. If you accept delivery and discover upon opening that any items are not usable after a delay, we will be happy to discuss putting it right. We cannot and will not accept any claims where the order has been refused.

4.11 If the goods are lost or damaged in transit, please let us know promptly. You must let us know immediately if your order is not delivered when scheduled, or delayed by DPD. If you don’t tell us on the day it was supposed to be delivered we cannot accept any responsibility at a later date, because it will be too late for us to resolve the situation.

4.12 Deliveries are made on the condition that there is reasonable access for the safe and prompt delivery of the goods. You should tell us about any special delivery requirements or conditions when you place your order.

4.13 Sometimes, for reasons beyond our control we may be prevented from delivering your goods as planned. These might include things such as accidents, breakdowns, fire, flood, storm, severe weather, acts of god, war, riot, civil commotion, malicious damage or the default of our suppliers. We will try to put things right as soon as possible however we can’t be responsible where this causes a delay or failure in delivering your goods.

4.14 Time is not the essence of the contract unless expressly stated otherwise in writing by a director of the company.

Subscriptions

4.16 Contents of a subscription order may not always be the same as a previous order.

4.17 When you purchase a subscription, you are authorising Pets Approve Ltd to debit the amount stated upon ordering, recurring at the intervals specified via the payment method you enter (paypal or credit/debit card). This will continue until formally cancelled.

4.18 To cancel or modify your subscription you must do so through the account area of www.rawgeouspetfood.com. Please note that we cannot accept cancellation requests through any other medium. We always email you 2 days before your automatic renewal payment is due but cannot be responsible for the email being overlooked or sent to a spam/junk folder. Cancellation requests made after payment has been taken cannot be applied until after that order has been dispatched from our warehouse. You will receive confirmation that your subscription has been cancelled.

4.19 Rawgeous Pet Food reserves the right to cancel subscriptions that have been cancelled and reactivated multiple times. Our system will automatically lock subscriptions from user accounts that have reached a threshold of cancellations in any given period to preserve the integrity of the subscription offers.

4.20 Any alterations – a change of address or subscription pause requests – must be processed through the account area of www.rawgeouspetfood.com. We cannot accept these requests through any other medium. Alteration requests made after payment has been taken may not be applied until after that order has been dispatched from our warehouse and this is the customers responsibility.

4.21 The payment and delivery will continue as scheduled until cancelled and will only be paused if requested in sufficient time (see above) through your account area of www.rawgeouspetfood.com. Pets Approve Ltd cannot be held responsible for oversights in desired changes we were not correctly notified of.

5. Cancellation And Returns

If you have any problems with your order or any of the items are unsatisfactory please get in touch with us (click here). We will do our utmost to straighten things out.

5.1 As our Products contain fresh and perishable food, you are not entitled to the "normal" right to return goods within 14 days after the day you receive them, simply if you change your mind. This is because the food is fresh, perishable and has a best before date within only a few days of delivery of the Products.

5.2 Right of return and refund if the Product is defective or not as described: Because you are a consumer, we are under a legal duty to supply Products that are in conformity with this Contract. You have legal rights in relation to Products that are defective or not as described. If the Products we deliver to you are defective or are not as described on our Website, you should contact us and report such defect or misdescription as soon as possible and in any event within 3 days from delivery of the Products. Please note that we require that you send us a photograph as evidence of the defective or misdescribed Product and without this your claim can not be assessed.

5.3 We will ask you to safely dispose of such Product and if we agree that it is defective or misdescribed (acting reasonably) we will offer you the choice of either an exchange or a refund of the price of the Product in full.

5.4 We will refund you within 14 days after the day on which you provide us with acceptable evidence that the Product is defective or misdescribed and we have agreed for you to throw the Product away safely.

5.5. We try our best to ensure that our Products are perfect 100% of time, but we are sure you will agree that this is not always possible. In the event of an error (for example, substituting a similar product) we reserve the right to use our discretion as to whether a full refund is applicable or not. We will act reasonably and may offer you a partial refund or a voucher.

5.6 We will refund you by the method used by you to pay.
