• provide an eligible delivery address in Great Britain or Northern Ireland (see below for further details);
• be legally capable of entering into binding contracts; and

You may place an order by clicking on the “ADD TO BAG” button and proceeding to the checkout page.
At the checkout page you will be provided with an opportunity to review your order(s), read and accept these Sales Terms, check the total price of your order(s) and the information you have provided, and correct any input errors before confirming your order(s).
You must check and ensure that your delivery address is correct before placing your order as it may not be possible to change your address before the order is dispatched. Please see section 4 (Order Processing) below which deals with this in more detail.
The Celeste Earth currently ships to all addresses within Great Britain and Northern Ireland excluding hotels, hostels, prisons, P.O. Boxes and BFPO (British Forces Post Office) addresses. We do not currently deliver to Channel Islands.
4. Order Processing and Contract Formation
Once you have submitted your order(s) using the Celeste Earth, Celeste & Earth will send you an email acknowledging receipt of your order(s) (“Order Receipt Confirmation”) and setting out details of the ordered Product(s).
Celeste & Earth may not always be able to accept your order and Celeste & Earth may choose not to accept your order in its sole discretion. For example (without limitation) there may be pricing errors, insufficient stock, unusual orders or orders which Celeste & Earth suspects are not placed in good faith. There may also be unexpected events outside of our control meaning we may be unable to fulfil your order.
If your order is not accepted Celeste & Earth will inform you via email, and if any payment has already been taken you will be reimbursed in full for any sums paid to Celeste & Earth for that order.
After receiving your order(s), Celeste & Earth will check that the relevant Product(s) is/are in stock. A contract for the sale of Products between you and Celeste & Earth, which will be governed by these Sale Terms, will only be formed when Celeste & Earth emails you confirming that all or part the Product(s) is/are still available and has/have been dispatched (“Shipment Confirmation”).
The contract is formed upon Celeste & Earth sending the Shipment Confirmation to you at the email address provided with your order. Please contact Celeste & Earth’s Customer Care Team if you have not received your Shipment Confirmation within 72 hours of placing your order.
A contract for the sale of Products will relate only to those Products whose dispatch has been confirmed in the Shipment Confirmation. Celeste & Earth will not be obliged to supply any other Products which may have been part of your order until the dispatch of such Products has been confirmed in a separate Shipment Confirmation.
In the Order Receipt Confirmation you will receive a copy of these Sales Terms, however you are encouraged to download, save and/or print a copy of your Order Receipt Confirmation and these Sales Terms for your records.
If you would like to amend or cancel your order before you have received your Shipment Confirmation, you must contact the Celeste & Earth Customer Care Team as soon as possible using one of the methods set out in section 17 (Contact Details) or as otherwise set out in the Order Receipt Confirmation. It may not be possible to amend or cancel your order, or to prevent dispatch of the Products, due to the speed with which orders are processed. If Celeste & Earth is unable to amend or cancel your order and the Products are dispatched to you, you have the option of either refusing to accept the delivery, in which case the Products will be returned to Celeste & Earth, or accepting the delivery and then returning the Products to Celeste & Earth in accordance with section 12 (Returns and Refunds).
Once you have received your Shipment Confirmation, it will be too late to prevent the Products from being dispatched to you. If you would like to cancel your order after this point, please see section 12 (Returns and Refunds) below.
5. Prices, Shipping and Handling, Charges and Taxes
The price charged for a Product will be the price in effect at the time your order is placed and will be set out in the Order Receipt Confirmation and in your Shipment Confirmation. All prices are payable in Great British Pound Sterling (GBP).
In the event of a pricing error, whether on the Celeste Earth or in an Order Receipt Confirmation or otherwise, you accept that Celeste & Earth has the right to correct such error and charge the correct price or cancel the order. If the actual price is more than the amount shown on your Order Receipt Confirmation, Celeste & Earth will notify you of the correct price and give you the option of proceeding with the order or cancelling it. If we are unable to contact you or if we do not receive a response from you, your order will be cancelled and any amounts paid by you to Celeste & Earth for the Products will be reimbursed. If you do not want to proceed with your order your sole remedy in the event of such a pricing error is to cancel your order.
You acknowledge that even after Celeste & Earth has sent you the Shipment Confirmation, if the pricing error is obvious and could reasonably have been recognised by you as an error, then Celeste & Earth will be under no obligation to provide the relevant Product(s) to you at the incorrect price.
Prices for the Products include VAT and/or other applicable taxes but do not include charges for shipping and handling. Separate charges for shipping and handling (and their related VAT or other taxes) will be clearly displayed on the screen prior to the completion of your order and will be confirmed in your Order Receipt Confirmation.
Prices for Products and for shipping and handling are liable to change at any time, but changes will not normally affect orders in respect of which we have already sent you a Shipment Confirmation (save in the case of a manifest pricing error as described above).
Payment shall be made by one of the methods you have selected during the checkout process (being VISA, MasterCard, Maestro, PayPal, Apple Pay or Celeste & Earth Gift Card).
Approved credit and debit card types are listed at the Celeste Earth checkout. In the event Celeste & Earth does not receive the appropriate authorisation from your card or payment service provider, Celeste & Earth reserves the right to reject your order.
Payment for your order, including all applicable taxes, shipping and other charges, will be settled from the applicable card or payment service once Celeste & Earth has sent you the Shipment Confirmation.
You should allow up to 3 days (excluding Sunday and bank holidays) for standard delivery and up to 1 business days for next day delivery (orders must be placed by 8:30pm) for in stock items (check here for current delivery periods). Delivery shall in any event take place within 30 days after Celeste & Earth has sent you the Shipment Confirmation. Celeste & Earth reserves the right to substitute another carrier of equal or lesser cost to deliver your order. The delivery options described above are the only shipping options available for sales through the Celeste Earth. Celeste & Earth is unable to accept any special delivery requests, which are outside the scope of these two options.
If Celeste & Earth cannot deliver your order within the period specified in your Shipment Confirmation, Celeste & Earth will notify you as soon as possible. You may choose to cancel your order, in which case Celeste & Earth will provide you with a full refund. If you choose not to cancel your order, Celeste & Earth will endeavour to deliver your order within a reasonable period of time.
If you unreasonably defer delivery or delay the receipt of delivery after Celeste & Earth has notified you that the carrier has tried to deliver the ordered items to you, or if you have provided Celeste & Earth with an incorrect delivery address which results in an unsuccessful delivery, the delivery package will be returned to Celeste & Earth, your order will be cancelled and a full refund will be issued to you.
8. Events Outside the Control of Celeste & Earth
Celeste & Earth shall not be held responsible for delay or failure to perform, if the delay or failure is caused by any act, event, non-happening, omission, accident or circumstance beyond its reasonable control, including, but not limited to:

• strikes or lock-outs (or other industrial action);
