ONLINE TERMS AND CONDITIONS

Welcome to The West Country Cheese Co website. The terms and conditions below apply to all orders placed using our website www.westcountrycheese.co.uk and any orders placed with us by telephone and form the basis on which you can visit us and our website. Please read them carefully as they contain important information

Ownership of rights

All rights, including copyright and photography, in this website are owned by or licensed to The West Country Cheese Co. Any use of this website or its contents, including copying or storing it or them in whole or part, other than for your own personal, non-commercial use, is prohibited. You may not modify, distribute or repost anything on this website for any purpose

Accuracy of content

We have taken care in the preparation of the content of this website, that prices quoted are correct at the time of publishing and that all goods have been described accurately. All prices shown are not inclusive of delivery fees unless otherwise stated. The reproduction of colours is as accurate as the photographic process will allow.

Availability

All products listed on the web site are subject to availability. Some of our cheeses, for example, are either seasonal or come from small producers, and on rare occasions may not be available. It happens. We’re always happy to suggest a good alternative or substitute something we consider equally as good or better. If we are waiting to stock up on a cheese you require or its unavailable, we will advise you and you can opt for the alternative or reconfirm delivery timings once the item is available or if not suitable, a full refund will be given if you have already paid for the goods.

If your order is a gift we will send it as quickly as possible and therefore, in the rare event of any specific cheese stock shortage we may substitute a cheese with a like for like replacement so as not to delay the shipment. For any weddings, birthdays or other events which are ‘booked in’ with a specific date from us then we will always attempt to contact you to discuss a replacement. It is your responsibility to supply correct email and telephone contact details.

Cheese Weights

We do our best to cut the cheese accurately. However, with our staff being human and this being all done by hand, occasionally our weight may not be totally precise. What we do is cut to the nearest weight possible and where we are slightly under on one cheese we will make up for it on the next, so the overall amount of cheese we promise will be reached. Again, whole cheeses are approximate in weight as these are handmade, so if listed as 500g this may be slightly over or slightly under

Pricing

Prices quoted for cheese are by weight or otherwise by unit and this is specified next to each item. We reserve the right to alter any prices or specifications at any time without notice. If you have placed your order and prices are amended prior to despatch, you will be notified and have the option of cancelling with a full refund
