A legally binding contract will only arise once we have completed delivery of the goods to you.
3.2 If you have entered an incorrect email address and receive no email purchase confirmation and/or any other details are incorrect then the onus is on you to contact us to amend your details and we can not be held responsible for the entering of incorrect information or your email service provider spam filtration.

4.1 The confirmation email we send will set out the latest time that you may amend or cancel your order, being 72 hours prior to the date of your delivery (the “cut-off time”). Please note that during our festive despatch period (1st December- 31st December each year) (the “festive cut off time”) you must provide us with 7 days notice prior to despatch to amend or cancel your order.
4.2 Should you wish to cancel your order after the cut off time or after the festive cut off time but prior to delivery, we may charge you in full for an amount equal to the value or your order, including any delivery cost.
4.3 Any cancellation must be sent to us by email to [email protected] within the cut-off time or festive cut off time.

5.2 The delivery charge applying to your order shall be set out at the time you checkout. No delivery charge shall be applied to orders with a value of £75 or more. During our festive despatch there will be an additional premium delivery charge on deliveries during the Christmas week of £4.

The delivery charge shall be amended and applied in accordance with paragraph 5.2.
5.4 We will debit the total cost of your order, including any delivery charge or packaging cost that may be applied, from your debit or credit card at the time you place your order.

7.3 Our deliveries are made with “no signature required”. In the event that nobody is available to take delivery of your order at either your primary or secondary delivery address or you ask us to leave your goods unattended at a secure place, the Curious Food Company expressly disclaims all liability that may arise in consequence of the delivery being left unattended, including, without limitation, theft, tampering or contamination, however caused.
7.4 If your delivery is refused or not accepted at a recipients address, we can not take responsibility for this and can not offer a free replacement box.
7.5 Events outside our control, for example, extreme weather conditions, may occasionally mean we are unable to deliver your goods at the time agreed. In these circumstances, we will contact you as early as possible to rearrange the delivery time. In such an event, our liability to you shall be limited to the price of the goods ordered and the cost of delivery.
7.6 Our Christmas delivery availability and prices are subject to change in the run up to Christmas. All changes will be reflected in the checkout process.
7.7 During December, we are unable to change delivery dates on orders placed.
7.8 From time to time delivery may take an additional day due to seasonal variations or volume. If you are ordering for a gift or a dinner party we advise to always allow an extra 24 hours. Your meat will stay chilled in our packaging – which allows meat to be in transit for 72 hours.
7.9 Our free standard delivery is applied to your order when you have more than £75 worth of full price items in your bag. You can have both sale or promoted and full price items in your bag but the full price items must total £75 or more.
