PRODUCT INFORMATION
We have made every effort to display our products and their colors as accurately as possible. However, the displayed colors of the products will depend upon the technical specifications and settings of the computer and monitor of the user, and we do not guarantee that the actual colors of the products will be accurately displayed on the user’s monitor. Products displayed may be out-of-stock, discontinued or otherwise unavailable, and prices are subject to change. We are not responsible for typographical errors regarding price or any other matter, and we cannot guarantee that any descriptions are totally accurate, complete, reliable, or error-free. The Products sold are supplied for your domestic and private use only. You agree that you will not use the Products for any commercial, business or re-sale purposes.

ORDERING AND AVAILABILITY
Products may be ordered by clicking on the items 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 "Place Order" button on the checkout page.

After placing an order, you will receive an email from us acknowledging that we have received your order and giving you an order reference number. Please note that this does not mean that your order has been accepted. Your order constitutes an offer to us to buy a Product. All orders are subject to acceptance by us. We are not obliged to accept your order and may, at our discretion, decline to accept any order. You do, however, acknowledge that by clicking on the "Place Order" button, you enter an obligation to pay for the Product(s). Where we accept your order, we will confirm such acceptance to you by sending you an email that confirms that the Product has been dispatched (“Confirmation”). The contract between you and us in relation to the Product(s) ordered (“Contract”) will only be formed when we send you the confirmation. After entering into the Contract, we will be under a legal duty to supply you with goods that are in conformity with the Contract.

The Contract will relate only to the Product(s) whose dispatch we have confirmed in the confirmation. We will not be obliged to supply any other Product(s) which may have been part of your order until the dispatch of such Product(s) has been confirmed in a separate confirmation.

DELIVERY
Your order will be fulfilled by the delivery date set out in the confirmation or, if no delivery date is specified, then within 30 days after the date of the confirmation, unless there are exceptional circumstances.

Your order will be delivered to the delivery address you specify when placing your order.

If your delivery address is geographically remote, for example certain outlying islands or other isolated locations, it is possible that we may not be able to deliver there. If that is the case, we will notify you before we accept your order. We reserve the right not to deliver to any country, including any country that is prohibited by applicable export laws. Orders cannot be delivered to PO Box or similar addresses.

Products comprised within the same order cannot be delivered to different addresses.

Deliveries are made by our trusted courier and take place on Monday to Saturday (or other normal working week days in countries that do not follow a Monday-Friday working week), excluding bank and public holidays, usually within the hours of 8am and 5pm. It is not possible to specify a precise time at which a delivery will take place. Please note that the courier may require deliveries to be signed for.

If you order Product(s) for international delivery, they may be opened and inspected by customs authorities and may be subject to import duties and taxes which are levied when the delivery reaches the specified destination. You will be responsible for payment of any such import duties and taxes. Please note that we have no control over these charges and cannot predict their amount. Please contact your local customs office for further information before placing your order. If you return an item, the import duties will be refunded if they were originally included in the purchase price. If they were not included then you will responsible for reclaiming duty directly from your local customs office.

Please also note that you must comply with all applicable laws and regulations of the country for which the Product(s) are destined. We will not be liable for any breach by you of any such laws.

RISK AND OWNERSHIP
The Product(s) ordered will be at your risk from the time of delivery or collection.  Ownership of the Product(s) ordered will also pass to you on delivery or collection, provided full payment of all sums due in respect of the Product(s), including any delivery charges, has been received.

PRICE AND PAYMENT
The price of Products is as quoted on the Properties from time to time.

Prices include value-added tax (where applicable) but exclude delivery costs and other taxes, which will be automatically added (at the cost shown) to the total amount due when you view the items in your shopping basket, and have selected your chosen different delivery method.

Prices and delivery costs are liable to change at any time, but changes will not affect orders in respect of which we have already sent you a confirmation.
The Properties contains a large number of Products and it is always possible that, despite our best efforts, some of the Products listed on the Properties may be incorrectly priced. We will normally verify prices as part of our dispatch procedures so that, where a Product's correct price is less than our stated price, we will charge you the lower amount. If a Product’s correct price is higher than the price stated on the Properties, we will normally, at our discretion, either contact you for instructions before dispatching the Product, or reject your order and notify you of such rejection.

Payment for all orders must be made by credit or debit card on the checkout page. We accept payment by most major credit and debit cards and Pay Pal.

You should be aware that online payment transactions are subject to validation checks by your card issuer and we are not responsible if your card issuer declines to authorize payment for any reason. We also carry out a standard pre-authorization check on your payment card, and Products will not be dispatched until this pre-authorization check has been completed. Please note, it is possible that your card issuer may charge you an online handling fee or processing fee. We are not responsible for this.

From time to time we may run promotions where we issue discount codes. These can be used in part-payment of the price of Product(s) ordered online, subject to the terms and conditions under which they were issued (as indicated in our relevant promotion from which you got the code). Discount codes can only be used once, and only during the period of validity stated and only in respect of the relevant Product(s) stated. Discount codes cannot be redeemed for cash.

RETURNS AND EXCHANGES
If you are not satisfied with your order for any reason, we will accept the return of items that are in new, unused condition, with original tags attached and all original packaging and other components included, when accompanied by an original Sweet Jones Cookies receipt/invoice or gift receipt. Returned items must not be washed, worn or altered. We do not accept returns of swimwear, underwear, custom-made, face masks, engraved, or personalized items or Clearance items.

Credit for your returned item(s) will be refunded back to your account in the same form of payment used to purchase the item(s). The credit should appear on your next statement. You should receive an email confirming the completion of return processing.
