Vegan Arborist is not a retailer and is not responsible for the provision of any products advertised, promoted or displayed on Our Websites or for any information published on Our Websites relating to such products including any information relating to the setting or controlling any prices we displayed.

Any products which you find and/or purchase via Our Websites are provided by independent retailers or other third parties (“Retailers”). Vegan Arborist Limited facilitates your ability to purchase from Retailers but is not responsible and has no liability to you in respect of such purchases.

If you click on a link on Our Websites relating to any products advertised, promoted or displayed on Our Websites you will then access a third party’s website and any information then provided about any products and any transaction that you may then elect to enter into relating into those products, or any other products, will take place on that third party website and not on Our Websites. For the avoidance of doubt no sale transactions take place on or via Our Websites.

The identity of the relevant Retailer and the terms and conditions applicable to your purchase with them (“Retailer Terms”) will be notified to you at or before the time of purchase and you should ensure that you read and fully understand them before completing your purchase. The Retailer Terms are solely determined by the Retailer and we are not responsible for the content of any Retailer Terms or for the compliance of the Retailer with the Retailer Terms or any legal obligations of the Retailer as the supplier of the products.

The Retailer Terms will set out what rights you have against the Retailer and will explain their liability to you in the event of anything going wrong. You agree to comply in full with all applicable Retailer Terms. You acknowledge that breaching the Retailer Terms could result in the cancellation of purchases and other benefits, the loss of consumer rights, and additional charges.

In the event that you encounter any problems with any retail product purchase you make or attempt to make via Our Websites, you acknowledge that you should resolve that issue directly with the relevant Retailer and that your sole remedy in such circumstances, including any refund, lies with the relevant Retailer and not with Vegan Arborist Limited.

You may see advertising material submitted by third parties on Our Websites. Each individual advertiser is solely responsible for the content of its advertising material and Vegan Arborist Limited accepts no responsibility for the content of advertising material, including, without limitation, any error, omission or inaccuracy therein.

To the maximum extent permitted by law, we (together with our officers, directors, employees, representatives, affiliates, providers and third parties) do not accept any liability for:

(a)   any inaccuracies or omissions in the content displayed on or via Our  Websites; or

(b)   any act of God, accident, delay or any special, exemplary, punitive, indirect, incidental or consequential loss or damage of any kind (including, without limitation, lost profits or lost savings), whether based in contract, tort (including negligence), strict liability or otherwise, incurred by you arising out of or in connection with your access to, use of, or inability to access or use, Our Websites or any content contained provided therein.

Vegan Arborist may in its absolute discretion immediately terminate any agreement with you under these Terms at any time upon notice to you and/or, if you have a log-in account, by cancelling your customer registration and your access to your account. Vegan Arborist may suspend your use of Our Websites without notice at any time, without incurring any liability to you whatsoever.

10. General provisions

You acknowledge that your unauthorised use of Our Websites may result in irreparable damage and injury to Vegan Arborist Limited and/or its affiliates or licensors for which money damages would be inadequate. Consequently, in the event of such unauthorised use, we and our affiliates and/or licensors (as applicable) shall have the right, in addition to any other legal remedies available, to seek an immediate injunction against you prohibiting any further use of Our Websites.

These Terms are personal to you. You shall not be entitled to assign these Terms in whole or in part to any third party without our prior written consent.

These Terms represent the entire agreement between us and you and supersede and replace all and any previous terms, conditions, agreements and arrangements in respect of your use of Our Websites.

We will act promptly to any indications of User Content that is in breach of these Terms. Where you know of or suspect any illegal activities, or know of or suspect that works belonging to you have been infringed, please write to us at the address provided at the start of the Terms marked for the attention of our ‘General Counsel’.

A person who is not a party to these Terms shall have no right to enforce any provision of these Terms.

11. Severability

We have made every effort to ensure that these Terms adhere strictly with the relevant provisions of applicable laws. However, in the event that any of these provisions are found to be unlawful, invalid or otherwise unenforceable, that provision is to be deemed severed from these Terms and shall not affect the validity and enforceability of the remaining Terms. This clause on “Severability” shall apply only within jurisdictions where a particular term is illegal.

12. No Waiver

In the event that either you or we fail to exercise any right or remedy contained in these Terms, that does not mean you or we (as applicable) have waived that right or remedy and so shall not be construed as a waiver.

13. Revisions

From time to time we may update these Terms to take account of changes in the law or for any other reason. If we update these Terms, we will post a new version on Our Websites, and as soon as you use Our Websites after they are posted, you will be deemed to have agreed to the updated version, but you will still be bound by the terms of any previous versions to which you have agreed or been deemed to agree. If there is a conflict between two versions of the Terms to which you have agreed or been deemed to agree, the more recent version shall take precedence unless it is expressly stated otherwise.
