The Contract Between Us
Your orders are an offer to purchase goods from us, we will confirm receipt of your order by sending you an email summarising the details of your order (‘Order Confirmation Email’) or otherwise confirming your order back to you; this is the point at which we accept your order and the contract is formed (subject to these General Terms & Conditions). The contract is completed when the goods are delivered (also subject to these General Terms & Conditions).
You may register with us when purchasing through the Website. Please ensure any details you provide us with are true, correct, complete and up to date. Inform us immediately of any changes to those details. Please inform us immediately if you have any reason to believe that your username and/or password has become known to anyone else, or are being, or are likely to be, used in an unauthorised manner. You can access and update your details using the 'Your Account' area of the Website.
We reserve the right to terminate accounts, remove or edit content or cancel orders at our discretion, but without charge to you.
All orders for goods made by you on the website, social media, messaging apps or by telephone are subject to these Terms and Conditions.
Amendments: we make no guarantees that once placed and paid for, an order can be amended. If you wish to amend an order you must notify us by phone or email as soon as possible and provided the order has not already been dispatched we will try to amend it. We also reserve the right to cancel or amend your order before the goods are dispatched if the goods are no longer in stock (see Substitution below).
Large Corporate Orders: for orders for delivery to multiple addresses, please contact our customer service team via firstname.lastname@example.org and allow a minimum of 72 for dispatch.
Dude Coffee and Smoke may substitute an item of equal or greater value than the original item listed, or issue a refund for the product. This applies to items within Hampers, Gift Boxes and mixed orders. Where we have substituted an item, you may elect to receive a refund rather than accepting the substitute item by contacting Customer Services. We will make any refunds made under these General Terms & Conditions within 14 days of us receiving the item, or evidence of items acceptable to us, from you.
All payments for goods must be made when the order is placed. We will not reserve or dispatch goods before payment is received. Ownership of the goods will pass to you once we have received payment in full. We cannot accept cheques or cash as payments online.

A small locked padlock will also appear in the bottom bar of your browser window.
Please note that we cannot guarantee the security of data when communicating with Dude Coffee and Smoke via email, social media or messaging apps.

We reserve the right from time to time to vary the dimensions, specifications, descriptions and quantities of items displayed on our website without prior notice.
When you place an order, we collect certain personal and transactional information (e.g. name, address, email address, credit/debit card details) to process your transaction and to send marketing information about similar goods and services.

Items Damaged in Transit, Defective & Incorrect
If you take delivery of a package from us and the goods being delivered to you have been damaged in transit, or are: defective, not as described, not of satisfactory quality, not fit for purpose, or are not per a sample (i.e. “Faulty”), we will at your option either exchange or repair these items without charge to you, or (with the exception of the perishable and other goods above) for a period of 30 days from the date of sale, provide you with a full refund. We will check the items on their return, and we may request photos of the damage and packaging in order to enable us to investigate the matter with our courier and packing facility.
Delivery to United Kingdom Addresses
For full information of our delivery services and charges, please consult our website. If you order a number of items for delivery to the same address, they may be dispatched separately and we cannot guarantee delivery on the same day unless specific day delivery is selected. We make every effort to dispatch items on time.
All deliveries must be signed for and are to an address (which must be correct) not a named individual. If a signed delivery at that address is not possible a card will be left saying that delivery was attempted and stating where the items will be held and the options available for delivery to be re-attempted or collection. If the delivery subsequently still fails or the delivery is refused by the recipient (e.g. an unwanted gift) then the goods will be returned to Dude Coffee and Smoke and you will be contacted for instructions of where the goods should be delivered. Refunds will not be available in these circumstances. If we are unable to make contact, the returned items will be sent to your address and you will be liable for additional costs.
Delivery times may vary according to availability and any guarantees or representations made as to delivery times are limited to mainland UK and subject to any delays resulting from postal delays or force majeure (e.g. weather) for which we will not be responsible. Any new delivery charges incurred due to such errors will be passed on to the sender.
Delivery Outside the United Kingdom
We do not currently accept orders for delivery outside of the UK without previous contact. Please email email@example.com before placing orders for delivery outside of the United Kingdom to confirm availability and delivery charges.
Items for delivery outside the European Union may be subject to import duties, taxes and fees. These are levied once the items reach the specified destination. You, the customer, are responsible for import duties, taxes and fees incurred on your purchases. However, for orders placed on our website, you will be charged the delivered price. Customs authorities may request personal information such as Social Security number when inspecting your parcel; failure to provide this information to Customs will result in the parcel being returned, we therefore recommend that the recipient’s telephone details be included with the order. In this instance we are unable to refund the cost of postage and packaging. Please note that for items you order, you are considered the importer and must comply with all laws and regulations of the country in which the items are to be delivered. Please note that cross-border deliveries are subject to opening and inspection by customs authorities. Dude Coffee and Smoke cannot guarantee that your goods will arrive in the same condition that they were dispatched should they be subject to inspection.

Save to the extent that we are responsible for foreseeable loss and damage caused by us, to the maximum extent permitted by law, Dude Coffee and Smoke accepts no liability and shall not be responsible for any loss or damage, whether foreseeable or otherwise, including direct, indirect, consequential, special or exemplary damages however they may arise.
Events Beyond Our Reasonable Control
We will not be responsible to you for any delay or failure to comply with our obligations under these General Terms & Conditions if the delay or failure arises from any cause beyond our reasonable control, unless you have expressly provided us with a date by which a delivery must be made.
