These General Terms and Conditions of Business apply to all orders and deliveries between We Love Nutrition, 3 Trinity Street, Bungay, NR35 1EQ, (hereinafter: We Love Nutrition) and its customers via the online shop http://welovenutrition.co.uk.
Order process, entering into a contract, quantity limitation
- We Love Nutrition offers its customers a comprehensive range of dog and cat foods. By clicking on the products or product descriptions, the customer navigates to the product details, e.g. details regarding the product design, size or flavour. The product is placed in the virtual shopping basket by entering the requested quantity and clicking on the shopping basket icon.
- By clicking on the “shopping basket” button, displayed in the top right-hand corner of the online shop, the customer navigates to an overview page and at any time can check the goods in the virtual shopping basket and, where necessary, make changes.
- If a customer does not wish to purchase additional goods, they can continue via the “To order/checkout” button. Registered customers can enter their usernames and passwords here to automatically use their saved information for the order. Alternatively, the customer can register as a new customer and set up a customer account or continue the purchase without setting up a customer account. In such a case, the customer must enter their address and invoice information on the following page.
- By further clicking on the “Continue” button, the customer reaches the penultimate order stage “Overview”. The customer has access to an overview of the order here with details of the price (including the statutory VAT) and details of the delivery service and costs.
- The order is entered into by clicking on the “Buy” button. This means a binding offer has been made.
Entering into a contract
The images of the range in the online shop are intended as an illustration and do not constitute binding offers for sale. By completing the order process by clicking on the “Buy” button the customer makes a binding offer to enter into a purchase contract. The customer thereupon receives an automated confirmation of receipt of order by e-mail (order confirmation). This order confirmation does not constitute acceptance of the offer. The contract with We Love Nutrition is only concluded when We Love Nutrition sends the ordered product to the customer and the shipping to the customer is confirmed by e-mail (shipping confirmation).
The offered goods are sold in customary domestic quantities only and only to persons of an age at which they are capable of entering into legal transactions.
Prices and shipping charges
All prices include statutory VAT and exclude shipping costs. We do not sell to businesses, therefore we do not issue VAT receipts, nor do we refund the VAT.
We Love Nutrition offers free delivery on all subscriptions, or £4.99 per order if not using our subscription service. The maximum weight for any parcel we can dispatch is 31kg. Orders weighing over 31kg will be dispatched in 2 or more parcels (depending on weight). Based on the value and weight of your order, a service charge of £1.99 per additional parcel will be applied to cover additional costs. The fee will be visible before checkout.
Dispatch and delivery
Unless stated otherwise in the offer or product details, the delivery period is 2 to 3 working days after dispatch. Frozen and perishable raw food products are only dispatched on Mondays and Tuesdays (public holidays excluded) and can only be delivered to the specified address. Please ensure somebody is available to accept delivery. The delivery service we use is DPD. Information about delivery and shipping conditions is available here.
In the event that some of the ordered products are not in stock, We Love Nutrition shall be entitled to provide partial deliveries at its cost provided this is acceptable for the customer.
In the event that We Love Nutrition is unable to deliver the ordered product because We Love Nutrition itself is not supplied by its own suppliers, without culpability on the part of We Love Nutrition, We Love Nutrition may withdraw from the contract. In such a case, We Love Nutrition shall inform the customer without delay and propose a comparable product. If a comparable product is not available, or if the customer does not wish to have that product delivered, We Love Nutrition shall, without delay, reimburse payments made by the customer. Deliveries are free of customs duties within the EU. In the case of delivery in countries outside the EU customs duties, taxes and other levies that may apply shall be borne by the customer. (Do we want to include the EU or are we delivering to the UK only?)
In the event that supplied products are damaged en-route, the We Love Nutrition customer service is to be contacted, where possible, without delay. As a result, We Love Nutrition shall have the option of lodging a complaint with the carrier or transport insurer regarding the damage. If the customer fails to provide notification of transport damage, this shall not have any effect whatsoever on the customer’s statutory guarantee rights.
In order to fulfil customer orders, We Love Nutrition needs to pass on the customer email address, and if available a contact phone number to the delivery company authorised to delivering the goods. This forms part of the contract with We Love Nutrition. The customer does not have the right to object. For further information please see our Data Protection page.
Retention of title
The goods shall remain the property of We Love Nutrition up until payment in full. Prior to the passing of ownership, pledging, ownership transfer by way of security, processing or redesigning are not permitted without approval by We Love Nutrition.
Right of withdrawal
Customers who are consumers have a 24-hour cancellation period after receiving the parcel if not of a satisfactory standard. A consumer is any natural person who enters into a legal transaction for a purpose that is neither attributable to their commercial nor self-employed professional activity. The following regulations apply to the cancellation right and the excluding of the cancellation right. If customers have any further questions about cancellations, they can contact the We Love Nutrition customer service.
Instructions on withdrawal
The exercise of the right of withdrawal
Right of withdrawal
You have the right to withdraw from this contract 24 hours after delivery if the product is of a high standard.
The withdrawal period will expire after 24 hours from the day on which you acquire, or a third party other than the carrier and indicated by you, acquires, physical possession of the goods.
To exercise the right of withdrawal, you must inform us (We Love Nutrition, 3 Trinity Street, Bungay, Suffolk, NR35 1EQ, email@example.com) of your decision to withdraw from this contract by an unequivocal statement (e.g. a letter sent by post or e-mail). You may use the attached model withdrawal form but it is not obligatory.
To meet the withdrawal deadline, it is sufficient for you to send your communication concerning your exercise of the right of withdrawal before the withdrawal period has expired.
Effects of withdrawal
If you withdraw from this contract, we shall reimburse to you all payments received from you, including the costs of delivery (with the exception of the supplementary costs resulting from your choice of a type of delivery other than the least expensive type of standard delivery offered by us), without undue delay and in any event not later than 24 hours from the day on which we are informed about your decision to withdraw from this contract. We will carry out such reimbursement using the same means of payment as you used for the initial transaction, unless you have expressly agreed otherwise; in any event, you will not incur any fees as a result of such reimbursement. We may withhold reimbursement until we have received the goods back or you have supplied evidence of having sent back the goods, whichever is the earliest.
You shall send back the goods to:
We Love Nutrition Returns
3 Trinity Street
without undue delay and in any event not later than 7 days from the day on which you communicate your withdrawal from this contract to us. The deadline is met if you send back the goods before the period of 7 days has expired.
You are only liable for any diminished value of the goods resulting from the handling other than what is necessary to establish the nature, characteristics and functioning of the goods.
End of Information concerning the Right of withdrawal
Exclusion of the right of withdrawal
The right of withdrawal does not apply in the event of delivery of goods:
- that are not pre-produced and an individual selection or determination by the consumer is authoritative for their manufacture or goods that are clearly geared towards the consumer’s personal requirements; goods that may perish quickly or goods whose sell-by-date would quickly run out,
- that are not suitable for returns for reasons involving health protection or hygiene if their seal has been broken post-delivery,
- that were post-delivery inseparably mixed with other goods.

Guarantee and liability
The statutory guarantee provisions apply.
Veterinary medicine diet feed should only be used where recommended and by way of regular monitoring by the veterinarian. The veterinarian should be visited regularly (every 6 months) during the feeding for check-up examinations and without delay in the event of deterioration in the domestic pet’s condition. We Love Nutrition is not liable for the consequences of inappropriate use of veterinary medical diet feed or use that is unnecessary.
Payment methods, invoices and credit notes
Payment for goods is to be made by Visa, Mastercard, or American Express credit card & Visa or Maestro debit card. Unfortunately, we cannot accept payment sent in the form of cash or cheques and are not responsible for loss.
Your credit or debit card will not be charged until your goods leave our warehouse. In the case of possible returns the amount paid will be refunded. Should your credit card have insufficient credit we reserve the right to invoice you for the costs incurred in making requests for payment.
We Love Nutrition reserves the right in individual cases or depending on the delivery method chosen by the customer to accept only certain types of payment
If the customer defaults in payment, the purchase price shall incur interest during the default in the sum of 5 percentage points above the ECB base lending rate. If the customer is not a consumer, the default interest shall be 8 percentage points above the base lending rate. We Love Nutrition reserves the right to assert a claim for greater damage caused by default subject to furnishing proof in that respect.
Payment via bank transfer
Please be sure to include your order invoice number in the payment reference field when you enter the information for your bank transfer. Please transfer the balance to the following account:
We Love Nutrition
Account Number: 63524397
Sort Code: 09-01-28
Payment by credit card
In the case of payment by credit card, amounts are booked within one week after shipping the goods.
PayPal is an online account-based system that lets anyone with an email address send and receive online payments using their credit card or bank account. You can use it at We Love Nutrition to pay safely, easily and quickly. During the ordering process, you can also open up a PayPal account if you don’t have one. The advantage of PayPal is that our system recognises the payment immediately and your items are shipped after 24-48 hours!
We Love Nutrition only issues invoices in electronic form. All invoices will be emailed to the customer as a downloadable PDF.
In the case of redeeming credit notes, the specific, valid redemption conditions, minimum order quantity and period of validity etc. are to be adhered to. The corresponding information is stated on the credit notes. In any case, only one credit note or one order / customer-related reduction can be redeemed for each purchase. Payment in cash or subsequent setting off with previous orders is not possible. Resale is not permitted.
Purchase of Vouchers
Gift vouchers are valid for all products at www.welovenutrition.co.uk and for ancillary costs (e.g. postage & packing). All vouchers are valid for a period of three years from the date they are sent. The period of validity of individual vouchers may not be extended. First-time buyers must use a credit card to purchase gift vouchers; returning customers may use the payment method of their choice. We Love Nutrition reserves the right to accept only certain payment methods in individual cases. The invoice for the purchase of the gift voucher will be sent to the purchaser by email. The voucher will be sent to the recipient by email with a PDF attachment. The purchaser of the gift voucher will receive a copy of said email for confirmation. Gift vouchers may not be ordered together with other products at We Love Nutrition.
Gift vouchers may be used only once at the online shop www.welovenutrition.co.uk. Only one voucher may be used per order. The use of several vouchers for the same order (e.g. a combination of gift vouchers and offer vouchers/coupons) is therefore not possible. If the order value exceeds the voucher amount the difference may be paid by credit card, direct debit or payment on invoice. If the voucher amount is not used up upon redemption the difference is forfeited. There will be no cash payout. It is not possible to offset vouchers retrospectively against current or previous orders. Vouchers may not be exchanged or redeemed for cash and cannot be used to buy gift vouchers. Vouchers may not be sold on.
Transfer of risk/liability
We Love Nutrition accepts no liability for loss or theft of vouchers and for voucher redemption by third parties without the knowledge or permission of the customer. Equally, We Love Nutrition will not be responsible for typing errors in the voucher recipient’s email address.
We Love Nutrition takes the protection of its customers’ data very seriously. The We Love Nutrition data protection declaration can be viewed here.
