Purchase of a product and/or subscription through this website is conditional upon your acceptance of these terms and conditions. We sell products and subscriptions to our customers whereby we send the desired product at the agreed time to the desired place. Every product and/or subscription is made clear at the time of purchase and through subsequent confirmation emails.

Our subscription packages will auto-renew (except any bought as gifts). You can ask to cancel the packages before your subscription is due to renew. Plans will renew on their anniversary date.


By placing an order through our site, you confirm that:

  1. You are legally capable of entering into binding contracts;
  2. You are at least 18 years old.

You grant us an irrevocable non-exclusive licence to use for any purpose any content you post on our website or otherwise communicated to us via any media.


After you place an order for a subscription and/or product, you will receive an e-mail from us acknowledging that we have received your order. This does not mean that your order has been accepted. Acceptance is confirmed by us sending you an email that confirms that the product(s) have been dispatched. The contract between us will only be formed when we send you dispatch confirmation.


Cafédirect Handpicked’s obligations under this agreement are to issue the product and/or subscription to you under the agreement. We are responsible for you receiving the desired goods to an (at least) acceptable quality.

We may provide links on our site to the websites of other companies, whether affiliated with us or not. We cannot give any undertaking, that products you purchase from third party sellers, or from companies to whose website we have provided a link on our site, will be of satisfactory quality, and any such warranties are disclaimed by us absolutely. This disclaimer does not affect your statutory rights against the third party.


If you have a problem with a product or service you bought online on Cafédirect Handpicked, you can submit your complaint via the Online Dispute Resolution Platform of the European Commission via the following address http://ec.europa.eu/odr which may allow out-of-court dispute settlement.

If you are contracting as a consumer, you may cancel a contract at any time within the cancellation period. This cancellation period begins when you receive dispatch confirmation and ends 14 days after the day on which you receive the goods. You will be responsible for returning a cancelled order to us . You will receive a full refund of the price paid for the subscription and/or product, in accordance with our refunds policy, unless there is any reduction in the value of the goods caused by your handling, in which case the refund will be reduced to reflect this. The refund will include the cost of delivery charges up to our standard delivery charge as a maximum. If the product has been delivered to you before you decide to cancel your contract, you must return it to us without undue delay and in any event not later than 14 days after the day on which you let us know that you wish to cancel the contract. 


The price of any product and/or subscription will be as quoted on our site, except in cases of obvious error. These prices include VAT. If there’s an obvious pricing error in relation to the product and/or subscription which could have reasonably been recognised by you as a mis-pricing then we have the right to cancel any product and/or subscription issued in respect of the deal and issue you a refund in respect of the same.

Payment for all products and subscriptions may be made by credit or debit card and/or PayPal. We may sometimes preauthorise your credit card, debit card and/or other method of payment when you offer to make a purchase but will only charge your credit or debit card up to 14 days before the products are despatched.


We will comply with our obligations in relation to damaged or faulty goods in accordance with your statutory rights.


If we are providing a refund:

  1. because you have cancelled the contract between us in accordance with this agreement and within the 14-day cancellation period, we will process the refund due to you as soon as possible and, in any case, within 14 days of the day we receive back from you any goods supplied or, if earlier, 14 days after the day you provide evidence that you have returned the goods. If no goods were supplied, we will refund you by no later than 14 days after the day on which we are informed about your decision to cancel the contract. In this case, we will refund the price of the product or subscription in full;
  2. for any other reason at our discretion we will notify you of such refund via email within a reasonable period of time. We will usually process the refund due to you as soon as we can.

We will also usually refund any money received from you using the same method originally used by you to pay for your purchase.


Our liability for losses you suffer as a result of us breaking this agreement including deliberate breaches is strictly limited to the purchase price of the subscription and/or product you purchased and any losses which are a foreseeable consequence of us breaking the agreement. Losses are foreseeable where they could be contemplated by you and us at the time your order is accepted by us. This does not include or limit in any way our liability:

  1. For death or personal injury caused by our negligence;
  2. Under section 2(3) of the Consumer Protection Act 1987;
  3. For fraud or fraudulent misrepresentation; or
  4. For any matter for which it would be illegal for us to exclude, or attempt to exclude, our liability.

We are not responsible for indirect losses which happen as a side effect of the main loss or damage and even if such losses result from a deliberate breach of these terms and conditions by us that would entitle you to terminate the contract between us, including but not limited to:

  1. loss of income or revenue
  2. loss of business
  3. loss of profits or contracts
  4. loss of anticipated savings
  5. loss of data
