THE LEGAL BITS

Privacy Policy

Your privacy is so extremely important to us. It is The Bagel Shop Company's policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect from you across our website, http://www.thebagel-shop.com, and other sites we own and operate.

We only ask for personal information when we truly need it to provide a service to you, especially our exclusive Bagel Club. We collect it by fair and lawful means, with your knowledge and consent. We also let you know why we’re collecting it and how it will be used.

We only retain collected information for as long as necessary to provide you with your requested service. What data we store, we’ll protect within commercially acceptable means to prevent loss and theft, as well as unauthorised access, disclosure, copying, use or modification.

We don’t share any personally identifying information publicly or with third-parties, except when required to by law.

Our website may link to external sites that are not operated by us. Please be aware that we have no control over the content and practices of these sites, and cannot accept responsibility or liability for their respective privacy policies.

You are free to refuse our request for your personal information, with the understanding that we may be unable to provide you with some of your desired services.

Your continued use of our website will be regarded as acceptance of our practices around privacy and personal information. If you have any questions about how we handle user data and personal information, feel free to contact us.

This policy is effective as of 4 July 2020.

Financial Conduct

We operate our site so that customers are able to purchase bagels both for delivery and collection. From this process, we come into contact with the customer's name, address, email address and telephone number so that we can contact them about their order. However, these are destroyed in a secure manner immediately after use. 

We never come into contact with any card details. Our online payment partner, Stripe, handles the transaction side of each sale and we receive the sale via a stripe payment. Stripe is an American  Financial Services company headquartered in San FranciscoCalifornia, United States. The company primarily offers payment processing software and application programming interfaces (APIs) for e-commerce websites and mobile applications. They are the payment provider of choice for Amazon, Google, Microsoft, Uber, Spotify, Booking.com and Deliveroo - and The Bagel Shop is therefore in both good, and safe, company.

27.         In any case, regardless of events beyond our control, if we do not deliver the Goods on time, you can (in addition to any other remedies) treat the Contract at an end if:

a.   we have refused to deliver the Goods, or if delivery on time is essential taking into account all the relevant circumstances at the time the contract was made, or you said to us before the Contract was made that delivery on time was essential; or

29.         If you were entitled to treat the Contract at an end, but do not do so, you are not prevented from cancelling the Order for any Goods or rejecting Goods that have been delivered and, if you do this, we will (in addition to other remedies) without delay return all payments made under the Contract for any such cancelled or rejected Goods. If the Goods have been delivered, you must return them to us or allow us to collect them from you and we will pay the costs of this.

30.         If any Goods form a commercial unit (a unit is a commercial unit if the division of the unit would materially impair the value of the goods or the character of the unit) you cannot cancel or reject the Order for some of those Goods without also cancelling or rejecting the Order for the rest of them.

31.         We do not generally deliver to addresses outside England and Wales, Scotland, Northern Ireland, the Isle of Man and Channels Islands. If, however, we accept an Order for delivery outside that area, you may need to pay import duties or other taxes, as we will not pay them.

Risk and Title

35.         Risk of damage to, or loss of, any Goods will pass to you when the Goods are delivered to you.

36.         You do not own the Goods until we have received payment in full. If full payment is overdue or a step occurs towards your bankruptcy, we can choose, by notice to cancel any delivery and end any right to use the Goods still owned by you, in which case you must return them or allow us to collect them.

Withdrawal, returns and cancellation

37.         You can withdraw the Order by telling us before the Contract is made if you simply wish to change your mind and without giving us a reason, and without incurring any liability.

38.         This is a distance contract (as defined below) which has the cancellation rights (Cancellation Rights) set out below. These Cancellation Rights, however, do not apply, to a contract for the following goods (with no others) in the following circumstances:

a.   foodstuffs, beverages or other goods intended for current consumption in the household and which are supplied on frequent and regular rounds to your residence or workplace;

b.   goods that are made to your specifications or are clearly personalised;

c.   goods which are liable to deteriorate or expire rapidly.

39.         Also, the Cancellation Rights for a Contract cease to be available in the following circumstances:

a.   in the case of any sales contract, if the goods become mixed inseparably (according to their nature) with other items after delivery.

Right to cancel

40.         Subject as stated in these Terms and Conditions, you can cancel this contract within 14 days without giving any reason.

41.         The cancellation period will expire after 14 days from the day on which you acquire, or a third party, other than the carrier indicated by you, acquires physical possession of the last of the Goods. In a contract for the supply of goods over time (ie subscriptions), the right to cancel will be 14 days after the first delivery.

42.         To exercise the right to cancel, you must inform us of your decision to cancel this Contract by a clear statement setting out your decision (eg a letter sent by post or email). You can use the attached model cancellation form, but it is not obligatory. In any event, you must be able to show clear evidence of when the cancellation was made, so you may decide to use the model cancellation form.

43.         You can also electronically fill in and submit the model cancellation form or any other clear statement of the Customer's decision to cancel the Contract on our website www.thebagel-shop.com. If you use this option, we will communicate to you an acknowledgement of receipt of such a cancellation in a Durable Medium (eg by email) without delay.

44.         To meet the cancellation deadline, it is sufficient for you to send your communication concerning your exercise of the right to cancel before the cancellation period has expired.

Effects of cancellation in the cancellation period

45.         Except as set out below, if you cancel this Contract, we will reimburse to you all payments received from you, including the costs of delivery (except for the supplementary costs arising if you chose a type of delivery other than the least expensive type of standard delivery offered by us).

Deduction for Goods supplied

46.         We may make a deduction from the reimbursement for loss in value of any goods supplied, if the loss is the result of unnecessary handling by you (ie handling the Goods beyond what is necessary to establish the nature, characteristics and functioning of the Goods: eg it goes beyond the sort of handling that might be reasonably allowed in a shop). This is because you are liable for that loss and, if that deduction is not made, you must pay us the amount of that loss.

Timing of reimbursement

47.         If we have not offered to collect the Goods, we will make the reimbursement without undue delay, and not later than:

a.   14 days after the day we receive back from you any Goods supplied or

b.   (if earlier) 14 days after the day you provide evidence that you have sent back the Goods.

48.         If we have offered to collect the Goods or if no Goods were supplied, we will make the reimbursement without undue delay, and not later than 14 days after the day on which we are informed about your decision to cancel this Contract.

49.         We will make the 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 the reimbursement.

Returning Goods

50.         If you have received Goods in connection with the Contract which you have cancelled, you must send back the Goods or hand them over to us at       The Courtyard, Cross Lane, Sidmouth, Devon, EX108AE      without delay and in any event not later than 14 days from the day on which you communicate to us your cancellation of this Contract. The deadline is met if you send back the Goods before the period of 14 days has expired. You agree that you will have to bear the cost of returning the Goods.

51.         For the purposes of these Cancellation Rights, these words have the following meanings:

a.   distance contract means a contract concluded between a trader and a consumer under an organised distance sales or service-provision scheme without the simultaneous physical presence of the trader and the consumer, with the exclusive use of one or more means of distance communication up to and including the time at which the contract is concluded;

b.   sales contract means a contract under which a trader transfers or agrees to transfer the ownership of goods to a consumer and the consumer pays or agrees to pay the price, including any contract that has both goods and services as its object.

Conformity

52.         We have a legal duty to supply the Goods in conformity with the Contract, and will not have conformed if it does not meet the following obligation.

53.         Upon delivery, the Goods will:

a.   be of satisfactory quality;

b.   be reasonably fit for any particular purpose for which you buy the Goods which, before the Contract is made, you made known to us (unless you do not actually rely, or it is unreasonable for you to rely, on our skill and judgment) and be fit for any purpose held out by us or set out in the Contract; and

c.   conform to their description.

54.         It is not a failure to conform if the failure has its origin in your materials.

Successors and our sub-contractors

55.         Either party can transfer the benefit of this Contract to someone else and will remain liable to the other for its obligations under the Contract. The Supplier will be liable for the acts of any sub-contractors whom it chooses to help perform its duties.

Circumstances beyond the control of either party

56.         In the event of any failure by a party because of something beyond its reasonable control:

a.   the party will advise the other party as soon as reasonably practicable; and

b.   the party's obligations will be suspended so far as is reasonable, provided that that party will act reasonably, and the party will not be liable for any failure which it could not reasonably avoid, but this will not affect the Customer's above rights relating to delivery and any right to cancel, below.

Privacy

57.         Your privacy is critical to us. We respect your privacy and comply with the General Data Protection Regulation with regard to your personal information.

Excluding liability

Subject to this, the Supplier is not liable for (i) loss which was not reasonably foreseeable to both parties at the time when the Contract was made, or (ii) loss (eg loss of profit) to the Customer's business, trade, craft or profession which would not be suffered by a Consumer - because the Supplier believes the Customer is not buying the Goods wholly or mainly for its business, trade, craft or profession.
