TERMS & CONDITIONS
TERMS OF USING THE SITE
PLEASE READ THESE TERMS VERY CAREFULLY.
The content of the pages of this website is for your general information and use only. It is subject to change without notice. You should therefore review our policy regularly in case of any changes.
The term ‘The Bee Thrive’ or ‘us’ or ‘we’ or ‘our’ refers to the owner of the website whose registered office is [address]. Our company registration number is [company registration number and place of registration]. The term ‘you’ refers to the user, viewer or customer of our website. They define how the Customer interacts with the site and conditions of purchase.
The Bee Thrive provides a platform for, as well as our own good, different Merchants to sell products. Each individual Merchant will be responsible for the distribution and return of your purchased product and will have agreed to our Terms and Conditions. All transactions are made via a third party secure payment gateway.
You may only purchase Products from us if:
▪ you are legally capable of entering into a binding contract with us (for example, in England and Wales you must be at least 18 years old);
▪ you are an authorised user of the credit or debit card used to pay for your order;
▪ you are resident in a country that we deliver to (please see our “Deliveries” page here for further information).
When you place an order, you should receive an acknowledgement e-mail confirming receipt of your order. We then carry out a standard pre-authorisation check to make sure there is enough money on the card.
We only accept your order once payment has been approved and we have debited the payment card. The contract is then made based on these terms.
You may be able to cancel or change your order within a short period of ordering depending on your chosen delivery method and ours, or the Merchant’s, cancellation policy. This will be set out in the confirmation email.
All orders are subject to availability and confirmation of the order price. If there’s an issue with an order, we will get in touch with you.
Very occasionally, we may need to refuse or cancel an order or close or freeze an account, even if we have previously confirmed your order, (e.g. if we think there is something suspicious going on with an order or an account). If this happens to you and you think we have made a mistake, please get in touch with us and we will be happy to speak to you about it.
