No Order shall be deemed accepted by the Seller unless and until it is confirmed unconditionally by the Seller in the Order Confirmation. The Seller has a policy of continuous product development and reserves the right to amend the specifications of any of the Goods without prior notice.
Goods supplied may therefore differ as a consequence of natural variance in ingredients or reasonable changes in the recipes which Marché57 uses - notably, a change in the amount of an ingredients in a recipe, or a replacement of an ingredient for an equivalent one.

The Buyer must inspect the Goods on delivery and, in the case where Goods have been delivered by carrier, sign the required proof of delivery document or collection acceptance document. A signature on that document will constitute conclusive evidence against the Buyer of receipt of the quantity of Goods indicated on that document free from any apparent defect or damage. The Buyer may not reject the Goods or any part of them solely on the grounds of short delivery of an installment.
If the Goods are alleged to be damaged or defective on delivery, a description of the alleged damage or defect must be given in writing at the time of delivery and signed by or on behalf of the Buyer. The Seller reserves the right to make delivery of the Goods by installments. If the Goods are to be delivered in installments, each delivery will constitute a separate contract. The Buyer may not treat the Contract (as a whole) as repudiated if the Seller fails to deliver any one or more of the installments or if the Buyer has a claim in respect of any one or more of the installments. If the Buyer wrongfully fails to take delivery of the Goods, the Seller shall be under no obligation to refund the Price. Goods may not be returned to the Seller except as provided in Section 7 below.
6. Risk and Property
Risk of damage to or loss of the Goods will pass to the Buyer on delivery at the agreed address. Notwithstanding delivery and the passing of risk in the Goods, property in the Goods will not pass from the Seller until the Seller has received full payment of the Price and all other sums which are due, owing or payable by the Buyer to the Seller in respect of the Contract or any other Contract between the Seller and the Buyer.
