CONSUMER TERMS OF SALE
PLEASE READ THESE TERMS OF SALE CAREFULLY BEFORE PLACING YOUR ORDER

Formation of the contract
These terms of sale apply to all goods supplied by The Finest Bubble Ltd, having its office at 11 Shillingford Street, Islington, London, N1 2DP ("the Seller"). No contract exists between you and the Seller for the sale of any goods until the Seller has received your order together with payment in full and the Seller has accepted your order. Once your payment has been received, the Seller will confirm that your order has been accepted by sending an email to you at the email address you provide in your order form. The Seller's acceptance of your order brings into existence a legally binding contract between you and the Seller.
The contract is subject to your right of cancellation (see below). The Seller may change these terms of sale without notice to you in relation to future sales.
The Seller will not sell or deliver Champagne or alchol to anyone under the age of 18. By placing an order you confirm that you and the recipient of the goods are at least 18 years old and the Seller reserves the right not to sell or delivery goods if it is unsure of this.

- Three Hour Delivery in London - At checkout we allow an option to pick a preferred delivery time; this is not a guarantee; while nearly all deliveries will be made within three hours there maybe occasions when a combination of traffic and distance greater than five miles from our Islington offices mean the delivery could be delivered within four hours.

Breakages & Shortages
If there are breakages the Seller will refund the cost of the broken bottles to your credit card or send replacement bottles. The Seller will refund any item that is received broken. Claims for breakages will only be accepted if the Seller is notified within 24 hours of delivery in writing by email to email@example.com and the damaged products and their packaging are kept for inspection and returned to the Seller on request. The courier must be informed of breakages or shortages at the time of delivery. The Seller will not accept any claims for breakages or shortages unless they are stated on the courier's documentation.
The Seller will be happy to exchange any goods purchased which are corked, tainted or out of condition, provided that the bottle with at least 90% of the Champagne is in the bottle along with its cork are returned to the Seller. The return carriage fees are the responsibility of the person sending back the Champagne. We take great care to only buy champagnes directly from the House or with some older vintages we buy them when there is perfect provenance, so we know storage has been right. Champagnes from 1999 or older are bought at your own risk and are not refundable.
- Champagne shipped outside of the mainland UK – This is shipped at purchasers risk and cannot be returned; If customs refuse the bottles or the delivery fails, we will require you to pay the return shipping costs. Any damaged bottles need to be photographed on the day and recorded damaged on the courier POD system and damage claims need to be made on the day of the delivery by sending photographs to firstname.lastname@example.org - We buy all our champagne directly from the champagne producer and hence leaves us in good condition. Cork taint in champagnes made in the last five years is rarely seen; the official statistics are less than one tenth of 1%.
- Important Information for outside of UK Delivery: When a bottle/s is imported into your home country from the UK it is likely Customs in your home country will contact you to confirm details about the importation. If you don't respond to customs call or email then the package will be returned to us. In this situation we can only refund the product cost and not the shipping costs.
- Champagne Quality and Storage - we buy all current releases of champagne direct from the producer or their UK agent and it is professionally stored. This means in the dark at around 12 Celsius. To keep the champagne in good condition we recommend storage at a constant temperature ideally close to 12 Celsius and in complete darkness. Do not expose clear bottles to any light until ready to drink; all champagne in clear bottles will spoil if you expose it to light and as little as 60 minutes in light can have a negative effect. Cellars in champagne use yellow lighting because that is the only light frequency that doesn’t damage the champagne.
Your right of cancellation
You have the right to cancel the contract at any time up to the end of seven working days after you receive the goods (see below). A working day is any day other than weekends and Bank or other public holidays.
To exercise your right of cancellation, you must give written notice to the Seller by email, to email@example.com and include details of the goods ordered and the delivery location.
If you exercise your right of cancellation after the goods have been delivered to you, unless the item is defective or we have delivered the item to you in error, you must arrange for the goods to be delivered back to the Seller at your expense. You must take reasonable care to ensure the goods are not damaged in the meantime or in transit.
Once you have notified the Seller that you are cancelling the contract and the Seller has received the goods back and has accepted they are in a satisfactory condition, then the Seller will refund or credit you within 7 days of receipt of the returned goods, for the sum you paid.
The Seller will take all reasonable precautions to keep the details of your order and payment secure, but unless the Seller is negligent, the Seller will not be liable for unauthorised access to information supplied by you.
