1.3. Your access to and use of the Website, including your order of Products through the Website, is subject to these Terms and Conditions.
1.5. We may use your personal information for the purposes of marketing, review and feedback, competitions and any other promotions operated by us. We will not disclose your personal information to any third parties, except where required by law.
2. Representation of Products
2.1. We aim to provide up-to-date pictures and details of the Products sold via our website. At times, the picture or details of the Products may differ from the Products actually supplied to you. We use our best endeavours, but do not warrant the accuracy of the information contained about the Products, descriptions and pictures, and recommend that you read labels carefully before consuming Products, together with any product specific updates on the Product details page for that item on the Website or within your order confirmation email.
2.2. All Products sold by us are done so on a unit basis. That is, there is a single price for that particular item. Even those items that naturally vary in weight are still sold at a unit price. The unit price and the price per kilogram of these variable weight items are expressed on the website based on the minimum weight of that item. All variable weight items will always be equal to or weigh more than the labelled minimum weight so you will never receive a pack that weighs less than you have paid for.
