TERMS OF SERVICE
"Biscuit Boutique" means Biscuit Boutique B.V. is a company incorporated in the Netherlands and our company number is 863170596, registered in the Netherlands, also referred to as "we" or "us" in these terms and conditions.
We want to give you a fantastic service and for you to be really happy with us. But if you've sent or received a Biscuit Boutique pressie and you're not over the moon about the experience, please email us straight away. Our address is firstname.lastname@example.org. We'll do our very best to get back to you within 24 hours, and we'll do everything we can to put things right for you.
We take payment when you place your order rather than at the time of dispatch. This is to help avoid any last-minute hitches that might delay your delivery. We cannot accept an order until we've checked and approved it, and if there is a problem, we'll be in touch within three working days. We run special offers from time to time, and these are to be used independently, not in combination.
We make all our biscuits to order; please allow two business days for your items to be dispatched.
However, this period may vary due to busy seasons such as Christmas, Valentine's Day, Easter, Mother's Day, Eid Mubarak etc. And just so you know, we don't send out any items on the weekend.
Corporate Orders Policy
All orders are to be paid in full upon confirmation. Production will not start until payment is received so late payment may affect delivery dates. If you wish to cancel your order, please note the following points. If an order is cancelled more than 60 days before the agreed dispatch date, a 90% refund will be offered. If an order is cancelled between 60 and 30 days in advance of the agreed dispatch date, a 50% refund will be offered. Unfortunately, we are unable to offer any refund if the order is cancelled with less than 30 days notice before the agreed date of dispatch.
We will often provide seasonal offers via our newsletter and in our brochures. These are valid online at www.biscuitboutique.com unless stated otherwise. These will be valid for a limited time only; please see the expiry date in the newsletter or brochure. A discount will be provided once the stated code is entered at the online checkout. Offers will not include delivery unless otherwise indicated. Offers cannot be used in conjunction with other offers unless stated otherwise. Offers exclude bespoke orders and corporate orders unless stated otherwise. As our special offers are contingent on availability, we may change the terms of special offers and promotional codes or withdraw them together at any time and without prior notice. We also reserve the right, at our absolute discretion, to offer different personalised special offers and promotions, and it will therefore only be possible for the customer in receipt of the special offer to redeem the discount.
From time to time, we will provide seasonal offers for free delivery. These are subject to the terms stated above. In addition, they will always have an order threshold of at least €20 or more and will be applicable on orders being sent to one address only within the Netherlands. We also offer free delivery on orders over €60 sent to a single address. We cannot offer free delivery if your order is over €60 but is being sent to more than one address.
All of our deliveries are handled by DPD, who advise that their Tracked service delivery can take between one to two working days in the Netherlands. 98% of DPD parcels arrive the very next day, but some can take an extra day and therefore is not a guaranteed service. Unfortunately, we're not able to take responsibility for any delays on their part. But if there are any problems, we'll do our best to let you know as soon as we can. DPD categorises a parcel as 'lost' if it still hasn't been delivered after 15 working days. If your parcel has still not arrived after this time, we'll happily offer you a refund or send your parcel out again; completely up to you.
We use DPD as our standard service. You will receive a notification email from them the day before the item is due to arrive and then another on the day of delivery specifying your 1-hour delivery slot. Should you wish to amend any of the delivery details, advise a safe place or leave with a neighbour, you can do so by following the link in the notification emails. Please note, if your parcel is undeliverable for any reason not in our control and is being returned, we will offer a re-delivery for the usual shipping fee depending on your delivery address region.
Our courier company guarantees their deliveries for the next working day, but they can't cover delays that are out of their control. And although we pass any specific delivery instructions on to them, we can't guarantee that the driver will carry these out.
We're not able to accept responsibility for return postage costs or items lost or damaged in transit to us or any other circumstances beyond our control, except at our discretion. Please note any re-delivery instructions will carry additional return and re-shipping charges.
We guarantee to dispatch your order according to our courier partner's delivery promise. DPD offers "Next Day" delivery, so we dispatch your order the "working day" before your chosen delivery date. However, due to uncertain times, the courier may have to delay your order. If your delivery is delayed, DPD will inform you by email or SMS. Unfortunately, we're not able to take responsibility for any delays caused by the courier partner DPD and such a situation is out of our control.
We send deliveries to selected European countries (Luxembourg, Belgium, Germany, France, Denmark and Austria) using DPD road services. Once they arrive at their destination, they'll need to be signed for.
DPD parcels are tracked throughout the whole of their delivery journey and need a signature.
We're not able to accept responsibility for return postage costs or items lost or damaged in transit to us or any other circumstances beyond our control, except at our discretion. Please note any re-delivery instructions will carry additional return and re-shipping charges. Please note, that we do not offer a refund for returned and undeliverable items.
We reserve the right not to send a message that may contain offensive and/or inappropriate content.
We reserve the right to withdraw our discounts at any time.
