Conditions Relating to the Sale of Products to You
This section deals with conditions relating to the sale of products by Pet Supermarket to you.
8. Our contract
Our contract will be on these terms and conditions to the exclusion of all other terms and conditions (including any terms and conditions which you purport to apply under any purchase order, confirmation email, specification or other document or transmission).
Pet Supermarket will endeavour to ensure that the supply of products through our Website complies with the relevant laws on veterinary medicines, as amended from time to time.
When you place an order to purchase a product from Pet Supermarket, we will send you an e-mail acknowledging your order and containing the details of your order. However, please note this does not mean that your order has been accepted.
Your order represents an offer to us to purchase a product which is accepted by us when we send e-mail confirmation to you that we've dispatched that product to you (the “Order has been shipped” Confirmation E-mail). That acceptance will be complete and the contract between us will only be formed at the time we send the “Order has been shipped” Confirmation E-mail to you. Any products on the same order which we have not confirmed in a “Order has been shipped” Confirmation E-mail to have been dispatched do not form part of that contract.
If we are unable to supply you with a product, for example because that product is no longer in stock or no longer available because of an error on our site (including without limitation an error regarding the price or the nature of the product you ordered) we will inform you by email and will not process your order. If you have already paid for the products, we will refund you the full amount as soon as possible.
We reserve the right to cancel orders at any time where we reasonably suspect that you have not acted wholly in accordance with these terms and conditions.
Prescription Only Medicine - Veterinarian:
Where an order is placed for a prescription only medicine you will need to obtain a signed prescription from your veterinarian. Thereafter, you will be required to post the original signed prescription form to Pet Supermarket’s business address within 45 days from the day of ordering. Please note that Pet Supermarket will not ship your prescription only medicines products until we receive an original prescription signed by your veterinarian. Failure to send the original signed prescription within 45 days of ordering may result in cancellation of your order unless otherwise agreed with Pet Supermarket. You will receive a credit for any sum that has been paid by you for the product less reasonable expenses incurred by Pet Supermarket in processing your order.
9. Your Responsibilities
In order for us to ascertain the suitability of sending veterinary products to you, we will require you to supply key information (such as species, breed, age and weight) on the animal/patient concerned. It is vital that all information you supply to us is complete and accurate in all respects because we will, in good faith, rely entirely on the key information you provided in order to ensure that we provide the correct and appropriate (if at all) medication to your animal.
Any false or inaccurate information you supply to us could result in certain products being prescribed to your animal that are unsuitable or inappropriate for the intended use you have specified to us. Therefore, you hereby undertake at all times to provide true, complete and accurate information to us when ordering any veterinary products from us. You hereby acknowledge that we shall have no liability or responsibility for any direct or indirect loss or damage that may result to you, your animal or a third party incurred as a result of our reliance on false or inaccurate information supplied by you or on your behalf.
Prior to the purchase of products, it is important that you are satisfied regarding the following matters: the appropriateness of particular products, correct use, storage, handling, waste disposal and correct administration of products.
In order for you to be satisfied regarding the matters set out above in respect of veterinary medicinal products, we ask that you read the data sheet(s) that apply to the veterinary medicinal products that you intend to purchase at you can find in the Product Information Database of Veterinary Medicines Directory’s website (VMD) (a link to which will be available on the product page), prior to confirming and proceeding with purchase of veterinary medicinal products.
Please note that we will use reasonable endeavours to ensure that every veterinary medicinal product supplied by us will be accompanied by an applicable datasheet.
If you wish to obtain advice or have any queries regarding any of the products supplied by us on this Website prior to the purchase of those products including without limitation, if having read the relevant information in the applicable data sheet(s), you still have a query or wish to obtain further advice regarding any veterinary medicinal products, we strongly encourage you to contact our pharmacist, vet or SQP.

Unless the product is faulty or not as described, you will be responsible for the cost of returning the products to us. If we have agreed to collect the products from you, we will charge you the cost to us of collection.
- If you cancel your contract we will:
- (a) refund you the price you paid for the products. However, please note we are permitted by law to reduce your refund to reflect any reduction in the value of the goods, if this has been caused by your handling them in a way which would not be permitted in a shop;
- (b) refund any delivery costs you have paid, although, as permitted by law, the maximum refund will be the costs of delivery by the least expensive delivery method we offer. For example, if we offer standard delivery at one cost but you chose to have premium delivery at a higher cost, then we will only refund what you would have paid for the cheaper delivery option; and
- (c) make any refunds due to you as soon as possible and in any event within the deadlines indicated below:
- a. if you have received the product and we have not offered to collect it from you: 14 days after the day on which we receive the product back from you or, if earlier, the day on which you provide us with evidence that you have sent the product back to us; or
- b. if you have not received the product or have received it and we have offered to collect it from you: 14 days after you inform us of your decision to cancel the contract.
Upon receipt of your order for products not requiring a written prescription or receipt of your signed prescription for your prescription only medicines products, Pet Supermarket will use reasonable endeavour to deliver your products to you within 7 working days.
Where Pet Supermarket is unable to deliver your products within 30 days from the day of receipt of your order, or as applicable, signed prescription, Pet Supermarket will advise you by email of the reason for the delay and provide a revised date for the delivery.
If for any reason you do not accept delivery of any of the products or Pet Supermarket is unable to deliver the products on time because you have not provided the appropriate instructions, Pet Supermarket may attempt to deliver the product again in which case you will be liable for all reasonable related costs and expenses.
If you do not accept delivery of any of the products because you have cancelled the contract pursuant to Clause 10 above you will receive a refund or credit for any sum that has been paid by you for the products within 30 days of cancellation less any premium delivery costs, less any cost Pet Supermarket incurs for collection of the product.
The products will be under your risk and responsibility from completion of delivery.
However, you will only own the products once we have received payment in full, including all applicable delivery charges.
Please note that some couriers may leave the products with a neighbour, or in a place on your property which they consider to be a ‘safe place’ if you are not in.
12. Price and Payment
Price shown will be inclusive of VAT but exclusive of delivery costs.
The prices of the products will be as quoted from time to time on our website, subject to clause 13 below. Payment for the products is due immediately upon the placing of your order.

If an item is not available at the time of ordering, this will be mentioned as “out of stock” on the product information page. As we process your order, we will inform you by e-mail if any products you order turn out to be unavailable. Please note that dispatch estimates are just that. They are not guaranteed dispatch times and should not be relied upon as such.
Despite our efforts, a small number of the products in our catalogue are mispriced. Rest assured, however, that we verify prices as part of our dispatch procedures. If a product's correct price is lower than our stated price, we charge the lower amount and send you the product. If a product's correct price is higher than our stated price, we will, at our discretion, either contact you for instructions before dispatch or cancel your order and notify you of such cancellation.
14. Product quality
We are under a legal duty to supply goods to you that are in conformity with the contract between us.

Pet Supermarket will endeavour to deliver products that are not due to expire within a reasonable period of time of the date of delivery.

Repeat Orders - Terms and Conditions (‘Repeat Order Terms’)
These terms and conditions govern the relationship between us and the customer (‘you’, ‘your’) in respect of your repeat orders, in addition to our usual Terms and Conditions, Privacy Notice and any other legal terms on our website. By placing a repeat order, you are agreeing to these terms.
In the event of a conflict between these Repeat Order Terms, and any other of our terms, these Repeat Order Terms will prevail.
Setting up Your Repeat Orders
Repeat orders are available on products where indicated on the product page. You will be able to set up your repeat order on the cart or checkout page, selecting how often you would like to receive your repeat product (from 1 week to 1 year).
If you set up multiple repeat orders on the same day, at the same frequency, we may group these into one repeat order. If the orders have different delivery options, the cheapest delivery option selected will automatically be applied to the grouped order.
Your subscription will continue until cancelled in the manner set out below.
Each repeat order is a separate contract by law. The contract is concluded when your order is dispatched and you are sent confirmation of dispatch.
Price of the Products
For your first order, the price of the products will be the price displayed on the website at the time you place the order.
For subsequent recurring deliveries, the applicable price will be the price of the product at the time payment is taken (approximately 5 days after you are emailed to remind you about your order (“Reminder Email”)).
You may select express delivery for your first order. For subsequent repeat orders the same delivery method will automatically be selected.
Any discount codes or specific promotions applied to your first order not apply to subsequent recurring orders.
After your first order, the repeat order will be automatically placed at your selected interval, using the same payment method used to set up the recurring order. You will be sent a Reminder Email 5 days before payment is taken to confirm that the order is being placed at which stage you will have the following options:
- Do nothing and receive your order as specified in the email;
- Amend frequency of order;
- Edit quantity of ordered products; or
- Cancel your repeat orders altogether.
These actions can be performed up to 5 days after your Reminder Email within your customer account area.
Your payment will be taken 5 days after your Reminder Email, and dispatch usually occurs 2-3 days after payment (depending on the delivery option selected on your first order).
If you card is nearing expiry, expired, or otherwise fails to process, the order will fail to go through and we will try to contact you. Similarly, if your order fails for any other reason (for example the product is out of stock or your address is not recognised) our customer contact centre will get in touch.
Repeat orders may be returned in accordance with our usual returns policy.
Cancellation or Changes
You can make changes to your subscription as per the bullet points above at any time in your customer account online.
You can cancel your recurring order at any time by contacting our customer care team on 0203 675 0780. Please be aware, it may not be possible to cancel your recurring order once payment has been taken (although customer care will do their best to help you if you phone them!)
Please note we may cancel your recurring order for any reason in our sole discretion, including if the ordered product is discontinued.
Alteration of Service or Amendments to the Repeat Order Terms
We reserve the right to alter, suspend or terminate the repeat orders scheme at any time by updating the relevant website page.
We also reserve the right to amend these Repeat Order Terms at any time by updating this page. You will be subject to the Repeat Order Terms in force at the time that each order is placed.

Here are the types of information we gather:

Does Pet Supermarket Share the Information it Receives?
Information about our customers is an important part of our business and we are not in the business of selling it to others. Pet Supermarket shares customer information only as described below.

This also includes exchanging information with other companies and organisations for fraud protection and credit risk reduction. Obviously, however, this does not include selling, renting, sharing or otherwise disclosing personally identifiable information from customers for commercial purposes in a way that is contrary to the commitments made in this Privacy Notice.
With your consent: other than as set out above, you will receive notice when information about you might go to third parties and you will have an opportunity to choose not to share the information.
Whenever we transfer personal information to countries outside of the European Economic Area in the course of sharing information as set out above, we will ensure that the information is transferred in accordance with this Privacy Notice and as permitted by the applicable laws on data protection.
Is my Information Protected?
Pet Supermarket has implemented security policies, rules and technical measures to protect your personal data from unauthorised access or modification, improper use or disclosure, unlawful destruction or accidental loss.
We work to protect the security of your information during transmission by using Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) software, which encrypts information you input.
We do not reveal your credit card number when confirming an order, nor do we store or log your entire credit card number. Of course, we transmit the entire credit card number to the appropriate credit card company the first time a card is added. This generates a ‘token’ (which we store, together with the last 3 digits of your card number) in order to process subsequent orders.
We maintain physical, electronic and procedural safeguards in connection with the collection, storage and disclosure of personally identifiable customer information. Our security procedures mean that we may occasionally request proof of identity before we disclose personal information to you. It is important for you to protect against unauthorised access to your password and to your computer. Be sure to sign off when you finish using a shared computer.
All our employees and data processors, who have access to, and are associated with the processing of personally identifiable customer information are obliged to respect the confidentiality of our customers.
We will ensure that your personal data will not be disclosed to state institutions and authorities without your consent except if we are required to do so in order to comply with any legal obligation, to prevent or detect crime, or catch and prosecute a suspect, or pursuant to a subpoena or any other law enforcement procedure or investigation.
What About Third-Party Advertisers and Links to Other Websites?
Our site may include third-party advertising and links to other websites. We do not provide any personally identifiable customer information to these advertisers or third-party websites.
Accessing and Changing Your Information
Pet Supermarket gives you access to a broad range of information about your account and your interactions with Pet Supermarket for the limited purpose of viewing and, in certain cases, updating that information. This list will change as our website evolves.
You can request access to the information that we hold about you and correct or update any such information which would not be accurate. Some information may be accessed simply by logging onto your account. Examples of information you can access easily online include: up-to-date information regarding recent orders; personally identifiable information (including name, e-mail, and password). For accessing any other information not available in your account, you may contact us at [email protected]
We will retain the personal information we collect from you in accordance with our data retention policy as set out below.
You can close your account through the Pet-supermarket.co.uk website or by contacting our customer service team. If you close your Pet Supermarket account, we will mark your account in our database as “closed”, but will keep some of your account information in our database for up to 10 years, after which time it will be deleted irretrievably. This is necessary in order to deter fraud, by ensuring that persons who try to commit fraud will not be able to avoid detection simply by closing their account and opening a new one. We will also retain your prescription order history. We are required to keep this information for at least five years by our regulators. However, if you close your account, your personally identifiable information will be put beyond use. This means that it will not be used by us for any further purposes, nor sold or shared with third parties, except as necessary to prevent fraud and assist law enforcement, as required by law.
Your account and all your personal information will be deleted if there is no activity on your account for 12 years.
What Choices Do I Have?
As discussed above, you can always choose not to provide information, even though it might be needed to make a purchase or to take advantage of certain Pet Supermarket features.
You can add or update certain information on the Your Account page. When you update information, we usually keep a copy of the previous version for our records.
You have the opportunity to opt-out of receiving commercial e-mail from us. If you block or otherwise reject our cookies, you will not be able to add items to your Shopping Cart, proceed to Checkout, or use any Pet Supermarket products and services that require you to Sign in.
Are Children Allowed to Use Pet Supermarket?
Pet Supermarket does not sell products for purchase by children. If you are under 18, you may use Pet-supermarket.co.uk only with the involvement of a parent or guardian.
Notices and Revisions
If you have any concern about privacy at Pet Supermarket, please email us a thorough description and we will try to resolve the issue for you.
Our business changes constantly and our Privacy Notice and the Conditions of Use and Sale might also change based on your comments or in order to adapt them to our practices. Any changes we may make to our Privacy Notice in the future will be posted on this page. We may e-mail periodic reminders of our notices and conditions but you should check our website frequently to see recent changes. Unless stated otherwise, our current Privacy Notice applies to all information that we have about you and your account. We stand behind the promises we make, however, and will never materially change our policies and practices to make them less protective of customer information collected in the past without the consent of affected customers.
