How We Will Communicate With You
Unless we inform you otherwise, all notices you give to us must be sent to email@example.com. We may give notice to you by posting it on the Website or at any address (email or postal) you provide to us. Notice will be deemed received and properly served immediately when posted on the Website, 24 hours after an e-mail is sent to your email address, or three days after the date of posting of any letter.
When using the Website, you accept that communication with us will be mainly electronic. We will generally contact you by e-mail or provide you with information by posting notices on the Website. By using the Website you agree to this means of communication and you acknowledge that all contracts, notices, information and other communications that we provide to you electronically comply with any legal requirement that such communications be in writing. This condition does not affect your legal rights.
If our supply of the Products is delayed by an event outside our reasonable control (an 'Event Outside Our Control') then we will contact you as soon as possible to let you know and we will where reasonably possible take steps to minimise the delay. We will not be liable or responsible for any failure to perform, or delay in performance of, any of our obligations under these terms and conditions, including any contract between you and us concluded under these terms and conditions, such as, but not limited to, a contract for the sale of Products to you, that is caused by an Event Outside Our Control. An Event Outside Our Control may include for example (but without limitation) the following: strikes, lock-outs or other industrial action; civil commotion, riot, invasion, terrorist attack or threat of terrorist attack, war (whether declared or not) or threat or preparation for war; fire, explosion, storm, flood, earthquake, subsidence, epidemic or other natural disaster; impossibility of the use of railways, shipping, aircraft, motor transport or other means of public or private transport; impossibility of the use of public or private telecommunications networks; the acts, decrees, legislation, regulations or restrictions of any government.
Our performance under any contract is deemed to be suspended for the period that the Event Outside Our Control continues, and we will have an extension of time for performance for the duration of that period. We will use our reasonable endeavours to bring the Event Outside Our Control to a close or to find a solution by which our obligations under any contract may be performed despite the Event Outside Our Control. If there is a risk of substantial delay caused by the Event Outside Our Control (a delay of more than 30 days) you may contact us to end the Contract and receive a refund for any Products you have paid for but not received.
These terms and conditions including the documents referred to in them (in each case, as amended from time to time) constitute the entire agreement between us and you in relation to use of the Website and/or supply any of the services or any of the Products to you and supersedes all previous agreements in respect of the same.
If we fail, at any time during the term of any contract between you and us concluded under these terms and conditions, such as, but not limited to, a contract for the sale of Products to you, to insist upon strict performance of any of your obligations under that contract or any of these terms and conditions, or if we fail to exercise any of the rights or remedies to which we are entitled under the contract or these terms and conditions, this shall not constitute a waiver of such rights or remedies and shall not relieve you from compliance with such obligations.
For example, if you miss a payment and we do not chase you but we continue to provide the Products, we can still require you to make the payment at a later date and we reserve all of our rights for loss or non-repayment by you. No waiver by us of any of these terms and conditions shall be effective unless it is expressly stated to be a waiver and is communicated to you in writing in accordance with the Notices section of these terms and conditions. A waiver by us of any default shall not constitute a waiver of any other default. If any of these terms and conditions or any provisions of a contract concluded under these terms and conditions are determined by any competent authority to be invalid, unlawful or unenforceable to any extent, such term, condition or provision will to that extent be severed from the remaining terms, conditions and provisions which will continue to be valid to the fullest extent allowed by law. The terms and conditions, as well as any contract in respect of a transaction carried out through the Website are governed by the laws of England and Wales. Any dispute or claim, including non-contractual disputes and claims, which cannot be resolved between us shall be subject to the exclusive jurisdiction of the courts of England and must be brought before the courts of England.

Our status (and that of any identified contributors) as the authors of the Copyright Material must always be acknowledged.
You shall not modify, translate, reverse engineer, decompile, disassemble or create derivative works based on any software or accompanying documentation supplied by Lotus Potion or its third party licensors. Any unauthorised use of the Website is strictly prohibited and may constitute a breach of our or our licensors’ intellectual property rights.
Requests To Use Copyright Material
The Website may incorporate third party content and we may be unable to grant permission for you to use any such third party content. Please contact the appropriate third party for permission to use their content.
Shipping & Returns
Subject to availability, after we have accepted an order for Products we will use all reasonable means to deliver the Products within the time stated for your chosen shipping service. Due to the size of some Products or large quantities ordered, we may have to split up your order; if that happens, you will only be charged once for shipping. We will aim to dispatch as soon as possible; however, any date specified for delivery is approximate and we shall have no liability for failure to deliver on such specified date.
Shipping Options, Charges And Arrangements
Shipping charges will be displayed clearly on the order page before payment is requested.
If no one is available at your address to take delivery and the Products cannot be posted through your letterbox, the shipping company will inform you of how to rearrange delivery. If, despite reasonable efforts, we are unable to contact you or re-arrange delivery, we may end the Contract.
Risk in the Products shall pass to you on delivery. Please check your Products thoroughly on receipt, as we cannot be liable for any damage caused once they are in your possession. This does not affect your statutory rights. You will only own the Products once we have received payment in full.
Conditions Of Supply
This section sets out the conditions under which we will supply Products to you through the Website.
Although we do our best to ensure that all material and information published on the Website is accurate, all Products are subject to availability. If we cannot supply you with the Product(s) you ordered, we will not process your order and will inform you of this in writing (which may include email). If you have already paid for the Product or service, we will refund you in full as soon as reasonably possible.
We reserve the right to restrict the availability of individual products or categories from time to time, including limiting the number of such products that may be purchased in any month.
To place an order through the Website, you warrant that you are legally capable of entering into binding contracts.
You must be purchasing as an individual for private use and not as a wholesaler or reseller. We reserve the right to cancel orders where we believe that they are intended for resale.
You can check and correct your order at any point up until you have clicked the 'PAY NOW' button on the checkout page. Details of your order history will be available through the My Account page.
The contract between us shall be concluded in English. If these terms and conditions (or any part of them) are made available in languages other than English, the English language version shall take priority.
You are required to provide us with your email address when placing an order or when registering an account with us. We will notify you by email as soon as possible to confirm that we have received your order. Please note that all orders are subject to acceptance by us, and we will confirm acceptance to you by sending you an e-mail confirmation that the Product has been dispatched. We may choose not to accept your order for any reason and will not be liable to you or to anyone else in those circumstances. The contract between us (“Contract”) will only be formed when we send you the Confirmation.
The Contract will relate only to those Products whose dispatch we have confirmed in the Confirmation. We will not be obliged to supply any other Products that may have been part of your order until the dispatch of such Products has been confirmed in a separate Confirmation.
The price of any Products will be as quoted on the Website from time to time, except in cases of obvious error. These prices include VAT and any other applicable sales taxes but exclude delivery costs, which will be added to your order before your payment is finalised.
Prices are liable to change at any time, but except in cases of obvious error, changes will not affect orders in respect of which the ordering process is complete.
If the rate of VAT changes between your order date and the date we supply the Product, we will 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.
We take all reasonable care to ensure that the price of the Product advised to you is correct. However, it is always possible that, despite our best efforts, some of the Products we sell may be incorrectly priced. We will normally check prices before accepting your order so that, where the Product's correct price at your order date is less than our stated price at your order date, we will charge the lower amount. If the Product's correct price at your order date is higher than the price stated to you, we will contact you for your instructions before we accept your order. If we accept and process your order where a pricing error is obvious and unmistakable and could reasonably have been recognised by you as a mispricing, we may end the Contract, refund you any sums you have paid and require the return of any Products provided to you.
Currently, you can pay by credit card, debit card or Paypal. In placing your order with a credit or debit card you confirm that the card being used is yours and/or you are authorised to use it and that there are sufficient funds or credit facilities to cover the cost of any Products or services. We may obtain validation of your credit or debit card details before providing you with any Products or services. All credit/debit card holders are subject to validation checks and authorisation by the card issuer.
If the issuer of your card refuses to authorise payment we will not accept your order or be under any obligation to deliver the relevant Products. We will not be obliged to inform you of the reason for the refusal, and we will not be liable for non-delivery of the Products ordered. We are not responsible for your card issuer or bank charging you as a result of our processing of your credit/debit card payment in accordance with your order.
Your credit/debit card will be charged when we dispatch your order from our warehouse. If your payment is not received and you have already received the Products you ordered from us, you must pay for the Products or return those Products to us in accordance with reasonable return instructions that we provide to you and in the same condition that you received them at your own expense. If you do not do this within 30 days of the date on which we cancel your order, we may collect (or arrange for collection) the Products at your expense. We reserve the right to charge you for any and all damage to any Products that are the subject of an unpaid order.
Our Right To Cancel Orders
Very occasionally we may need to cancel an order at our discretion. If this becomes necessary, it will be without charge to you.
Cancelling A Product Order
You may cancel a Product order at any time, without having to give a reason, pursuant to your statutory rights under the Consumer (Information, Cancellation and Additional Payments) Regulations 2013 (the 'Regulations'). To exercise your right to cancel under the Regulations, you must notify us within 14 days of the day after you received the order.
We will refund you the cost of the order less the cost of shipping. This refund will be within 14 days of us receiving your returned order.
If you do decide to cancel your order, please contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org. Please quote your order number in all correspondence. You will be responsible for the cost of return and for ensuring the Products reach us safely.
We try to dispatch all orders within 48 hours of receipt, so if you do change your mind, please notify us as soon as possible. If your order has already been dispatched or delivered, then you'll need to follow our Returns Procedure to return the Products to us. We will issue the refund to you on receiving the returned Products, provided that they are in original packaging, unopened and unused. Any returned Products that are not in a hygienic or resaleable condition may be disposed of and we shall have no liability to you in this regard, for refunds or otherwise. If you are exercising your right to change your mind you must send off the Products within 14 days of telling us you wish to end the contract.
Please contact customer services on email@example.com to request return authorisation, stating the reason for return. You have 14 days to change your mind and return your order. If you do return a product it must be within original packaging, undamaged and unused.
We recommend that you use a 'signed for' shipping method and obtain proof of postage. Please include a note detailing the reason for the return and giving your order number and any other details our Customer Services department have asked you to include.
If you have any difficulty or have any other queries regarding the returns procedure, please email our customer service team.
Unfortunately we cannot accept liability for returned goods that we don't receive, or for those that get damaged in shipping on their return.
If you cancel an order in accordance with the section named “Cancelling A Product Order” we will issue your refund to the original payment method within 14 days of receipt of the returned Products. We cannot accept liability nor can we take responsibility for any bank charges that you may have incurred during the order process.
Faulty Or Damaged Products
We are under a legal duty to supply Products that are in conformity with these terms and conditions. Nothing in this section affects your legal rights as a consumer under applicable laws, and we have a legal duty to supply Products of the quality described in your order. If any Product you purchase is damaged or faulty when delivered, we may offer an exchange or refund as appropriate, in accordance with your legal rights. Please note that if the damage to a Product occurs after delivery, no refund or exchange will be made. If you believe a Product is faulty, you should notify us by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. We have taken reasonable steps to display, as accurately the detailing of our Products in the images that appear on the Website. However, as the actual colours and detailing you see onscreen will depend on your monitor, and we cannot guarantee that your monitor's display of any colour or other detailing will exactly reflect the colour or detailing of the product upon delivery. The packaging of the Products may vary from that shown in images on our Website.
