Website Terms and Conditions
These terms describe your relationship with us and your use of our website. They are legally binding, and you accept and agree to them by using this website. These terms change from time to time, so please read them carefully each time you use this website. Your attention is drawn to the section below entitled 'Restrictions on our liability', as it restricts our liability to you - even if we are negligent. Your statutory rights as an individual buying something which is not for use in a business are not affected by these terms.
English is the only language used on this website.
In these terms: 1) 'us' and 'we' mean Mole Valley Farmers Limited. 2) 'including' and 'in particular' are used to illustrate particular examples, but they do not limit the scope of these terms in any way. 3) 'loss' means any loss or damage of any kind. It includes: (i) associated costs and expenses incurred in connection with any loss or damage or any related claim or legal proceedings, and (ii) compensation paid to third parties.
You: You confirm that: 1) you are accessing our website from within the United Kingdom, 2) you are over 18 years of age, 3) you are using your own payment card, 4) you are resident in the UK at the delivery address you give in the order form. If any of these are not true, you will compensate us in full for any loss we suffer as a result.
This website includes information which we have sourced from third parties and which we make available free of charge. We have taken reasonable care when selecting those third parties, but we have no control over the information itself and we do not accept any responsibility for its accuracy. Some of the information concerns forecasts which may turn out to be inaccurate or wrong. This website also includes 'How To' guides, which provide guidance on certain tasks. These are a basic introduction to certain tasks for those who have not undertaken those tasks before: they are not comprehensive and they may not be suitable in all situations. Whatever the nature of the information, it is provided for general information only: you should not rely on it and you should obtain professional advice if you need information you can rely on.
The pictures on this website are for illustrative purposes only, and the items delivered may be different in detail. For example, they may be a different colour. Some items may not be available, in which case we may substitute an appropriate alternative. We may change our prices at any time, although this will not affect any orders we have already accepted. With some items, especially software, you do not become the owner of the item; instead, the manufacturer gives you a licence - ie permission to use the item in accordance with certain restrictions.
You may only order items by adding them to your electronic 'basket' and then proceeding through the electronic 'checkout'. Further instructions will appear at each stage, and any charges you will have to pay will be clearly identified. Your order will be acknowledged when you submit it, but this does not mean that we have accepted it. Each item in your order constitutes a separate order. If we accept your order for all or any of the items, we will send you a further e-mail saying so. If we accept your order there is a legally binding contract between you and us. It consists of 1) the information on this website, 2) these terms, 3) your order, 4) our e-mail acknowledging your order, and 5) our e-mail accepting your order. It does not include anything else. Nothing on this website amounts to an offer to supply any items, and we are not obliged to sell you anything until we accept your order. We may decline to accept any order, or any part of an order, without giving any reason. You may be required to help us verify your age before we accept your order for certain items.

Cookies are small text files which a website may put on your computer or mobile device when you first visit a site or page. The cookie will help the website, or another website, to recognise your device the next time you visit. Web beacons or other similar files can also do the same thing. We use the term “cookies” in this policy to refer to all files that collect information in this way.
There are many functions cookies serve. For example, they can help us to remember your username and preferences, analyse how well our website is performing, or even allow us to recommend content we believe will be most relevant to you.
Certain cookies contain personal information although most cookies won’t collect information that identifies you, and will instead collect more general information such as how users arrive at and use our websites, or a user’s general location.
We use a number of different cookies on our site. If you do not know what cookies are, or how to control or delete them, then we recommend you visit All About Cookies for detailed guidance.
On some pages of our site you will see social buttons. These enable users to share or bookmark the web pages. There are buttons for: Twitter, Google +1, Facebook ‘Like’, LinkedIn ‘Share’, and StumbleUpon. In order to implement these buttons, and connect them to the relevant social networks and external sites, there are scripts from domains outside of Mole Valley Farmers. Please be aware that these sites are likely to be collecting information about what you are doing all around the internet, including Mole Valley Farmers's site. If you click on any of the social buttons, these external sites will be registering that action and may use that information. In some cases these sites will be registering the fact that you are visiting Mole Valley Farmers, and the specific pages you are on, even if you don’t click on the button if you are logged into their services, like Google and Facebook. You may wish to check the respective policies of each of these external sites to see how exactly they use your information and to find out how to opt out or delete such information.
EXTERNAL WEB SERVICES
We use a number of external web services on the Mole Valley Farmers website, mostly to display content within our web pages. For example, to show videos we use YouTube, Flickr for photographs. This is not an exhaustive or complete list of the services we use, or might use in the future, when embedding content, but these are the most common. As with the social buttons we cannot prevent these sites, or external domains, from collecting information on your usage of this embedded content. If you are not logged in to these external services then they will not know who you are but are likely to gather anonymous usage information e.g. number of views, plays, loads etc.
Some emails that we send you have no tracking in at all. Other emails we send we put in tracking so that we can tell how much traffic those emails send to our site but we do not know who has clicked so the data is anonymous. Some emails we can track, at an individual level, whether the user has opened and clicked on the email. We rarely use the latter information at a personal level, rather we use it to understand open and click rates on our emails to try and improve them. Sometimes we do use the personal information e.g. to re-email people who didn’t click the first time. If you want to be sure that none of your email activity is tracked then you should opt out of Mole Valley Farmers' emails which you can do via My Account or you can unsubscribe by using the link at the bottom of the email.

Your prescription must either be emailed or faxed to us, for more information about where to send your prescription please call 01392 872898.
Please note that we will not despatch your order until we have received an electronic copy of your prescription and we are satisfied that the prescriber and the prescription are genuine and legally valid. It is an offence for a person other than a registered veterinarian to prescribe a veterinary (POM V) medicine; and for a person other than the prescriber to amend a prescription issued by your veterinarian.
If we are unable to satisfy us that the prescriber and the prescription are genuine and legally valid we will cancel your order and issue a credit for the sum that has been paid by you for the product/s less reasonable expenses incurred by us in processing your order.
Any inaccurate or false information you supply to us could result in certain products being prescribed to you that are unsuitable or inappropriate for the intended use you have specified to us.

PLANT WELFARE AND LOSS REPLACEMENT POLICY
We cannot accept responsibility for the health and welfare of plants after delivery or collection from the nursery.
Please notify us within 7 days of receipt of goods to allow us to address any concerns. Within this time frame the Company is in a position to replace plants if there is good reason to do so. Following that period, the Company cannot be held responsible for the health and welfare of plants.
We cannot be held responsible for losses discovered within your planting scheme during the spring or summer following planting in the winter.
We pride ourselves on supplying healthy plants of the highest quality. However, it is not unusual for natural losses to occur following planting, even where good plant husbandry has been upheld, with the risk of losses being slightly higher for bareroot stock over and above rootballed or containerised.
Many factors exist which may have either a ‘positive’ or a ‘negative’ impact on the loss rate experienced, such as the storage and handling of plants upon receipt, the quality of planting, ground conditions, soil type compatibility, rainfall, drought and on-going maintenance. All of which are beyond our control.
We advise every customer to allow for this potential loss rate and to budget for replacements for two to three years following the initial planting.
Despatched with every order is our Plant Welfare Guide including what checks to make on receipt of plants, how to look after plants before planting out, as well as how to correctly plant and maintain them. Further, more detailed information can also be sought from our sales team or on our website.
The guides we offer are not provided as a 100% guarantee for plant success but as a help to reduce any potential loss rate.
