Terms and Conditions

The legal stuff!

1.1 We may revise these terms and conditions at any time by updating this page. You should check this page from time to time to review the then current terms and conditions, because they are binding on you. Certain provisions of these terms and conditions may be superseded by expressly designated legal notices or terms located on particular pages of this Website. If you do not wish to accept any new terms and conditions after we have given notice, you should not continue to use this Website.

2.1 You are deemed to place an order with us by ordering via our online checkout process. As part of our checkout process you will be given the opportunity to check your order and to correct any errors. We will send you an order acknowledgement, detailing the products you have ordered.

2.2 Our acceptance of an order takes place when we despatch the order. We will send you a despatch confirmation by email. When we despatch the order the purchase contract will be made and you will be charged, unless we have notified you that we do not accept your order or you have cancelled your order.

2.3 We may refuse to accept an order:
(a) where goods are not available;
(b) where we cannot obtain authorisation for your payment;
(c) if there has been a pricing or product description error; or
(d) if you do not meet any eligibility criteria set out in our terms and conditions.

3.1 All prices include VAT (where applicable) at the current rates. We reserve the right to express the price exclusive of VAT, but we shall show VAT separately and include it in the total price.

3.2 Where we charge separately for packing, carriage and insurance and other relevant charges, the appropriate rates are set out in our specified pricing structure shown elsewhere on this Website.

3.3 Our prices are reviewed periodically and the next review will be on 01/01/2012.

(a) you can notify us by emailing before we have dispatched the goods to you; or
(b) where goods have already been dispatched to you, by advising us within seven days of receipt and then returning goods to us in accordance with clause 4.3 below.

4.2 If goods are returned to us by the couriers and customers are deemed to be responsible for the failed delivery, the unsubsidized cost of postage will be charged to the customer. Customers will be deemed responsible when the couriers have attempted to deliver on two or more occasions, have left the package at a local collection centre but no collection is made by the customer within one week of receiving notification. Customers supplying an incorrect delivery address will also be deemed responsible for failed delivery.

4.3 Under the Distance Selling Regulations 2000, you may return goods you have ordered from us for any reason at any time within 7 days of receipt for a full refund or exchange. Under the terms of our Returns Policy, we insist that the goods must be unopened and with all packaging returned inclusive (except in the case of product defect). The Distance Selling Regulations 2000 allows the opening of goods to inspect them as long as they do not feature within our list of excluded products below:

The following kinds of products may not be returned under the DSR (unless shown to be defective):

(a) Fresh or refrigerated products with a manufacturer specified shelf life of less than two months from date of purchase unless defective or damaged. (A full list of current products meeting this criteria is available upon request)

(b) Nutritional oils and other temperature sensitive products where refrigeration is considered essential, unless defective or damaged. (A full list of current products meeting this criteria is available upon request)

(c) Live bacteria products such as pre-biotics, pro-biotics and some digestive enzymes (room temperature stable and ambient stable products are not covered by this clause) unless defective or damaged (A full list of current products meeting this criteria is available upon request) ;

(d) Books unless damaged in transit

(f) Any prescription specific product ordered via Spartan Health Shop from one of our suppliers or manufacturers specifically to meet the individual needs of the customer/patient unless damaged or defective;

(g) gift vouchers.

4.3a All customers agree to a statutory duty throughout the thirty day period of cancellation to retain careful possession of the goods and take reasonable care of them

Unless the liability for the return lies with us (by way of product defect, in-transit damage or incorrect supply), the costs of returning goods to us shall be borne by you.

4.4 Upon receipt of the goods we will give you a full refund of the amount paid or an exchange credit as required. Goods purchased at ‘sale prices’ will be refunded at sale purchase price when returned.

4.5 The rights to return the goods to us as referred to in clause 4.3 will not apply in the following circumstances: –
(a) in the event that the product has been used
(b) to any products that by their nature have a limited lifespan, such as certain nutritional oils, live enzyme based products and all pre-biotic, probiotic and probiotic containing products of a non-ambient nature
(c) Trade returns made without valid RMA authorisation. Please see below for Trade and Practitioner customers

The provisions within clauses 4.3, 4.4 and 4.5 do not affect your statutory rights.

5.1 Unless otherwise stated BY MUTUAL AGREEMENT OR CONSENT, all purchases by practitioners or health professionals will be deemed as Trade Sales. If a return of Trade purchased items is required, an RMA (Return Merchandise Authorisation) must be obtained from Customer Support BEFORE goods are returned to us. All paperwork relating to goods returned must carry the RMA number in order for us to accept them back into stock. All goods returned by the customer are the responsibility of the sender until signed for and accepted back into stock by Positive Nutrition Limited. We would ALWAYS advise returning goods by a trackable, recorded or insured postal service

5.2 We reserve the right to refuse return of correctly supplied goods if this procedure is not followed. In most instances where goods have been supplied correctly by us and are returned from a Trade sale, we will levy a re-stocking charge of up to 25% of the product price to cover administration costs.

6. Sell-by and use-by dating liabilities 
6.1 It is understood by customers that all goods are supplied by us as a reseller only. We do not manufacturer the products we sell. We therefore have no control over use-by and sell-by dates that come associated with each product batch number.

6.2 Whilst we will always do our very best to supply products with a reasonable shelf life, we are unable to supply specific dated products on customer request nor are we able to accept liability for over-runs on the batch date expiry caused by customer multi-purchase. It is the customer’s responsibility to enquire as to the suitability of the product for use within a specified timescale and not ours. This is due to changing dosage regimes by the customer over which we have no control.

6.3 You have the right of return if you dem the dates unnaceptable for whatever reason. For products returned due to unacceptable sales dates, we are unable to accept or bear the postage/packing costs of return and we will only accept the product back into stock if unopened and returned in a re-saleable condition. We do not accept live bacteria, probiotic or liquid oil products back into stock when these have been deemed to have been correctly supply under the above 6.1 & 6.2 conditions
