- DUG Products, Pricing and Availability
- We make all reasonable efforts to ensure that all descriptions and graphical representations of DUG Products available from Us correspond to the actual DUG Products that you will receive. Please note, however, the following:
- Images of DUG Products are for illustrative purposes only. There may be slight variations in colour between the image of a product and the actual product sold due to differences in computer displays, lighting conditions, and the fact that foodstuffs will naturally vary in appearance;
- Images and/or descriptions of packaging are for illustrative purposes only, the actual packaging of DUG Products may vary.
- Please note that sub-Clause 6.1 does not exclude Our responsibility for mistakes due to negligence on Our part and refers only to minor variations of the correct DUG Products, not to different DUG Products altogether. Please refer to Clause 10 if you receive incorrect DUG Products (i.e. DUG Products that are not as described).
- All DUG Product descriptions provided on Our Site include a full list of ingredients and nutritional information. We will also indicate where a product is suitable for vegetarian and/or vegan customers. Please always check the details on the packaging before using the DUG Product. It is especially important to check suitability for special diets. If there is a possibility of an allergic reaction, please contact your doctor directly if you have any doubts concerning the nature of product ingredients or if you suspect that you may be allergic to the ingredients.
- We make all reasonable efforts to ensure that all descriptions and graphical representations of DUG Products available from Us correspond to the actual DUG Products that you will receive. Please note, however, the following:
DUG Products are free from the following.
- Milk or lactose;
- Other nuts;
- Sesame seeds;

- We cannot guarantee that all DUG Products will always be available. Stock indications are not provided on Our Site.
- Minor changes may, from time to time, be made to certain DUG Products between your Order being placed and Us processing that Order and dispatching the DUG Products, for example, to reflect changes in relevant laws and regulatory requirements. Any such changes will not change any main characteristics of the DUG Products and will not normally affect your use or enjoyment of those DUG Products. However, if any change is made that would affect your use or enjoyment of the DUG Products, suitable information will be provided to you.
- We make all reasonable efforts to ensure that all prices shown on Our Site are correct at the time of going online. We reserve the right to change prices and to add, alter, or remove special offers from time to time and as necessary. Changes in price will not affect any order that you have already placed (please note sub-Clause 6.9 regarding VAT, however).
- All prices are checked by Us before We accept your Order. In the unlikely event that We have shown incorrect pricing information, We will contact you in writing to inform you of the mistake. If the correct price is lower than that shown when you made your Order, we will simply charge you the lower amount and continue processing your Order. If the correct price is higher, We will give you the option to purchase the DUG Products at the correct price or to cancel your Order (or the affected part of it). We will not proceed with processing your Order in this case until you respond. If We do not receive a response from you within 7 days, We will treat your Order as cancelled and notify you of this in writing.

- If, during the order process, you provide Us with incorrect or incomplete information, please contact Us as soon as possible. If We are unable to process your Order due to incorrect or incomplete information, We will contact you to ask to correct it. If you do not give us the accurate or complete information within a reasonable time of Our request, We will cancel your Order and treat the Contract as being at an end. If We incur any costs as a result of your incorrect or incomplete information, We may pass those costs on to you.
- No part of Our Site constitutes a contractual offer capable of acceptance. Your Order constitutes a contractual offer that We may, at Our sole discretion, accept. Our acceptance is indicated by Us sending you an Order Confirmation by email. Only once We have sent you an Order Confirmation will there be a legally binding Contract between Us and you.
- Order Confirmations shall contain the following information:
- Your Order Number;
- Confirmation of the DUG Products ordered including full details of the main characteristics of those DUG Products; and
- Fully itemised pricing for the DUG Products ordered including, where appropriate, taxes, delivery and other additional charges.

- All UK Orders are dispatched via YODEL & DHL (both options are available at the checkout stage). Note: Orders to Scottish Highlands will be shipped via YODEL by default, and Channel Islands via DHL. European orders are dispatched via DHL’s Road service. We do however reserve the right to change carrier.
- Where a proof delivery is received, all Orders will be deemed as delivered in good condition, and no compensation will be offered in the event of any non-delivery/damage claim unless reported to Us within 24 hours of claimed delivery/receipt. In the event of damage, photographic evidence will be required to support your claim, and this includes images of any outer packaging. No compensation will be offered in the event of an incorrect delivery address being supplied, and, once your Order has been dispatched from Our warehouse no change of delivery address can be accepted. In this instance your delivery will be returned to Our warehouse (where possible), and additional shipping charges will apply.
- All online orders are dispatched directly from Our fulfilment warehouse.
- If the Order cannot be fulfilled by your selected delivery company and We cannot contact you or arrange redelivery or collection, We will treat the Contract as cancelled and recover the DUG Products. If this happens, you will be refunded the purchase price of the DUG Products themselves, but not the cost of delivery. We may also bill you for any reasonable additional cost that we incur in recovering the DUG Products.
- In the unlikely event that We fail to deliver the DUG Products within 30 calendar days of Our Order Confirmation (or as otherwise agreed or specified as under sub-Clause 9.1), if any of the following apply you may treat the Contract as being at an end immediately:
- We have refused to deliver your DUG Products; or
- In light of all relevant circumstances, delivery within that time period was essential; or
- You told Us when ordering the DUG Products that delivery within that time period was essential.
- If you do not wish to cancel under sub-Clause 9.7 or if none of the specified circumstances apply, you may specify a new (reasonable) delivery date. If We fail to meet the new deadline, you may then treat the Contract as being at an end.
- You may cancel all or part of your Order under sub-Clauses 9.7 or 9.8 provided that separating the DUG Products in your Order would not significantly reduce their value. Any sums that you have already paid for cancelled DUG Products and their delivery will be refunded to you within 5 calendar days. Please note that if any cancelled DUG Products are delivered to you, you must return them to Us or arrange with Us for their collection. In either case, We will bear the cost of returning the cancelled DUG Products.
- Delivery shall be deemed complete and the responsibility for the DUG Products will pass to you once We have delivered the DUG Products to the address including, where relevant, any alternative address you have provided.
- Ownership of the DUG Products passes to you once we have received payment in full of all sums due (including any applicable delivery charges).
