Terms and conditions

These terms and conditions are – and this won’t surprise you – our terms and conditions. There isn’t really much to say about them except that we have bullied our solicitors into writing them in something approximating plain-English and we have avoided sneaky little small print.


These terms and conditions are effective from 1 May 2020 until further notice. These terms and conditions apply to (a) any orders made using our website, (b) any orders made in writing and (c) any orders made verbally. In fact, they apply to all orders.

Use of our lovely website

Perhaps the first thing to say is that any use of this website and any order you place are subject to the following terms.

In visiting the website and/or placing an order you warrant (posh word for promise):

  • The personal information that you are required to provide when you register as a customer of ours is true, accurate, current and complete in all respects; and
  • You will notify us by e-mail immediately of any changes to the personal information.
  • You also agree not to impersonate any other person (no matter how clever you are at impersonations) or entity or to use a false name or a name that you are not authorised to use.

Also, you agree fully to indemnify, defend and hold The Darling Experiment Limited and our officers, directors, employees, agents and suppliers, harmless immediately on demand, from and against all claims, liability, damages, losses, costs and expenses, including reasonable legal fees, arising out of any breach of the terms by you or anyone you are responsible for or any other liabilities arising out of your use of this website, or the use by any other person accessing the website using your shopping account and/or your personal information.

We will take all reasonable care, in so far as it is in our power to do so, to keep the details of your order and payment secure, but in the absence of negligence on our part we cannot be held liable for any loss you may suffer if a third party procures unauthorised access to any data you provide when accessing or ordering from the website.

If you want to set up an account with us the steps are as follows:

  • You apply to be a website user (for which we are very grateful).
  • You will receive your authorised account number and appropriate delivery day.
  • You place the order for your products on the website by pressing the confirm order button at the end of the checkout process.
  • We will send to you an order acknowledgement email detailing the products you have ordered. This is not an order confirmation or order acceptance from us.

Order acceptance and the creation of the contract between you and us will take place on the despatch to you of the products ordered.

If we can’t or don’t accept your order, we will notify you although we aren’t obliged to. We may refuse to process a transaction for any reason or refuse service to anyone at any time at our sole discretion. We will not be liable to you or any third party by reason of our withdrawing any product from our website whether that product has been sold or not; removing or editing any materials or content on the website; refusing to process a transaction or unwinding or suspending any transaction after processing has begun.

If you set up a standing order with us, we may terminate it at our discretion without notice. If we do so you will only be charged for orders that have been dispatched to you.

Payment can be made by any of the methods specified in the payment section of this website and payment will be debited and cleared from your account as set out in the payment section of this website. You confirm that the credit, debit or store card that is being used is yours.

All credit/debit cardholders are subject to validation checks and authorisation by the card issuer. If the issuer of your payment card refuses to or does not, for any reason, authorise payment to us, we will not be liable for any delay or non-delivery.
