Terms and Conditions
Our Pledge to You
At YourHealthBasket, we aim to provide the highest standards of Customer Service.
Below we specify the Terms and Conditions relating to shopping with us at YourHealthBasket.
If for any reason you do not agree with these conditions but still wish to purchase goods from this site, you first must receive an original, signed document from YourHealthBasket, stating any agreed variation. In the absence of such variation, the terms & conditions below prevail and your agreement to them is confirmed by the act of placing an order.
All payments are required in £ (Pounds) Sterling.
Accepted methods of payment are detailed at the checkout. These include MasterCard, Visa and Paypal. We also give the option of payment by bank transfer but your order will not be dispatched until we have received notification from our bank that your funds have cleared, typically this is up to 48 hours.
Other methods of payment may be made available in certain circumstances but must be agreed before purchase by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org
Prices displayed on the YourHealthBasket website will be the prices charged while stocks last.
We reserve the right to change prices without notice and in accordance with manufacturer/tax increases.
Bank transfers - the customer is responsible for ALL bank charges.
The website currency converter is a rough guide. You should always check the most up to date exchange rate before making the transfer or card payment as currency fluctuations are currently very unpredictable.
IMPORTANT - We are unable to provide refunds when paying by bank transfer due to bank charges and possible currency fluctuations. Should we be unable to fulfil your order, we will seek to find a suitable alternative or offer store credit. Should you cancel your order or return items, store credit will be offered.
Please note purchase orders are by prior approval only.
Please bear in mind our website does not have the facility to show which products are out of stock. Invariably we will occassionally run out of a product but we will always do our best to keep any inconvenience caused to a minimum. Any significant delays will be notified by email within 5 working days.
Discounts for practitioners are provided at the discretion of YourHealthBasket following verification of qualifications. We reserve the right to withdraw practitioner privileges if we feel orders are simply being placed for self use only. Please contact the office for more information.
Dispatch is targeted as the same day provided we receive your order before 3pm. Occassionally, during busy periods this can be difficult to achieve. Please ensure to contact us for time sensitive orders.
As a first time buyer and to those customers choosing to order over the phone it is your responsbility to check the email confirmation to ensure we have taken your address details correctly. We cannot be held liable for any errors in postcode or house number once an order has been dispatched. Additionally please take the time to check the emai confirmation, even if you have ordered the products yourself as occassionally typos occur or information gets missed. The email confirmation is your chance to ensure we have your correct details as we cannot be held liable for losses resulting from an incorrect delivery address.
YourHealthBasket dispatch orders 5 days per week but do not work on Bank Holidays.
In the unlikely event that YourHealthBasket will not be able to dispatch your order within 5 working days, you will be contacted by email and offered a full refund or further details of when fresh stock is expected.
All shipping is charged as per order weights and chosen method of dispatch as shown in the cart at the time of placing your order.
Shipping prices are charged at the cost price of the Postal/Carrier service chosen plus VAT.
YourHealthBasket customers are not charged for packaging unless a specific request is received prior to dispatch.
Please be aware that many of our products will not easily fit through letter boxes and it is the responsibility of the customer to give a satisfactory delivery address where delivery can be accepted. Please also note that high value orders will require a signature on delivery.
We reserve the right to amend the shipping method chosen to give your order the added security of tracking and/or a signature. If you specifically request we send an order without tracking, you agree to waive your right to a replacement or refund if the parcel is lost.
We retain proof of postage at all times.
If you have ordered multiple items and one item is flagged as SOI** (special order item) this means the item will be ordered in for you and your items will only be dispatched once the SOI item is available. If you wish for the items to be sent separately, an additional postage charge will apply.
Delays and Losses
YourHealthBasket want you to receive your order quickly but unfortunately we are unable to guarantee the delivery time of Postal/Carrier services as this is out of our control.
If there are any delays or problems with the delivery of your goods, YourHealthBasket will do everything within our power to help you trace your parcel including following up tracking numbers (where applicable) and contacting Royal Mail for further clarification
Beyond what is within our power, YourHealthBasket are unable to accept any responsibility for delays or loss caused by the Royal Mail until the Royal Mail's "claims waiting time" has expired. This is also the policy for all courier deliveries.
For domestic UK post, Royal Mail's "loss" policy is currently 15 working days beyond expected delivery date. In realistic terms, this will be 4 weeks after shipping before we are able to make any claim against the Royal Mail on your behalf. We accept this is less than ideal and we pledge to do our utmost to ensure you receive your orders quickly and hassle-free.
For domestic orders, if your items have not been received within 7 days, we encourage you to contact your local postal/sorting office to check that your postman has not forgotten to leave a "while you were out card." In more than 90% of cases, this is usually the resolution.
If your order has still not arrived after 4 weeks, notify YourHealthBasket and we will make a claim on your behalf and replace or refund your order as appropriate. If you fail to notifiy us of a loss after 60 days, regrettably we will be unable to assist as the claim period with the relevant postal service will have expired.
If your order has arrived but there is an item missing and no note from us stating that another parcel is to follow, please contact us within 24 hours and retain the original packaging in case there has been an instance of theft by the courier or delivery service. Failure to notify us by email or phone within 24 hours may invalidate any replacement or refund.
**Special note - should you specify a "safe place" where you would like your order left and tracking dictates that the order was delivered, YourHealthBasket cannot be held responsible for any losses or damage**
If a product arrives in an unexpected condition or you suspect the contents may be faulty, please notify us within 24 hours of receipt.
Communicating with us
If you need to communicate with YourHealthBasket regarding your order, please always quote the order number given on your "Order Confirmation" or "Dispatch Confirmation" emails*. This will help speed up the response to your email. We try to respond to all emails by the following working day and sometimes you will get a reply within the hour.
*If you have a spam/junkmail security system, please list YourHealthBasket as a contact or you may not receive dispatch notifications.
Calls to YHB may be recorded for monitoring and training purposes.
Prices and Availability
Price and availability is subject to change without notice. A contract will not exist between the customer and YHB until an order is paid and the goods have been dispatched*. Whether a purchase is completed or not, any dispute or claim arising from a transaction with YHB will be limited to the total purchase price of the goods involved.
When ordering products flagged as "special order items" your entire order will be held until this item arrives into stock. Please contact us if this is not convenient. Special order items may take anywhere from 3 working days to 21 working days to source.
*The exception is any "special order items" which should be treated as a customised or personalised order - cancellations and refunds prior to dispatch are not possible. In such instances, the contract between customer and seller exists from the moment payment clears.
YourHealthBasket operate a full no-quibble 30 day returns policy.
However, because of the nature of the products we sell, returns can only be accepted if the security seals are intact. We encourage all our customers to ensure the products they order are suitable for their needs and, as we are human, that no errors have occurred when the product has been picked in our warehouse. There may be instances where the manufacturer has updated their formula which has not been reflected on the product detail page. Please ensure you check the product label thoroughly when your order arrives PRIOR to breaking the seal and taking the supplement.
Before returning any item, please contact us by email to confirm.
The goods must be returned to the address given upon acceptance of the return by YourHealthBasket.
When returned items are received in their original, unopened condition, a refund/replacement will be issued. In cases where a replacement product is sent and if the original error was the fault of YourHealthBasket, we will provide a return envelope for you to return the incorrect/unsuitable item.
For all other returns for unwanted/unsuitable products, we strongly recommend that items are well packed and sent by recorded delivery. Refunds will not be made until goods are received by YourHealthBasket in their original, unopened condition. YourHealthBasket accepts no responsibility for returns lost before confirmed receipt by our office.
Returns can only be accepted within 30 days of the date of the original order and an extension on this timescale will not be granted unless the circumstances are highly unusual.
Goods which are ordered specifically at the request of the customer or noted as "special order item" cannot be cancelled or returned and orders from customers are accepted on that condition. It is your responsibility to ensure these specific product requests are suitable for your needs.
YHB cannot be held liable or responsible for allergic reactions or products which "do not agree" with a customer.
Orders returned made via a wholesale account or a practitioner bulk buy will be subject to a restocking fee.
These conditions do not affect your statutory rights.
Products sold by YourHealthBasket are not intended to diagnose, treat, cure or prevent any disease.
YourHealthBasket do not manufacture the goods sold and rely totally on the accuracy of the information given by the supplier/manufacturer.
YourHealthBasket cannot give medical opinions. No comment or entry in this site or in any communication from YourHealthBasket may be taken as such.
Customers must rely on their own expertise/research and that of their personal advisers or healthcare practitioners as to the use and suitability of products purchased. Customers should always carefully check all the details printed on the tub before opening the product.
Providing a product for sale does not imply YourHealthBasket's recommendation of that product, its suitability or its efficacy.
Customers Outside the UK
Items shipped outside of the United Kingdom are on the understanding that the customer has investigated the import regulations of their country and are requesting products, sizes, quantities and values which fall within the regulations of the country to which they request their order to be sent.
If any package is rejected by the import authorities of the delivery country, the customer will be responsible for any loss or costs incurred. If any tax or import duties arise, these too are the responsibility of the customer.
If a "special order item" is ordered in for the customer and subsequently rejected by the customer's country authority for import, the refund shall be provided for the product price as store credit only.
Deliveries sent overseas that are delayed or lost cannot be replaced or refunded until the Royal Mail official delivery timeframe has lapsed which is typically 21 working days from dispatch. We usually find that although delayed, orders will arrive at their intended destination and we encourage all our customers to contact their local delivery office prior to contacting us.
YourHealthBasket are passionate about you and we take our customer care very seriously but being human, we can on very rare occasions make an error at the time of picking your order.
If we do make a mistake, please tell us and we will do all within our control to remedy the situation as quickly as possible.
If you have any problems or concerns about the service you have received, please contact us immediately by email at email@example.com giving your order number and details of your concern together with an email address or telephone number on which you can be contacted during working hours GMT.
