Conditions of Sale
These Conditions of Sale govern the sale of products by Regency to you. Regency is wholly owned by Regency Spices Limited.
Please read these conditions carefully before placing an order with Regency. By placing an order with Regency, you signify your agreement to be bound by these conditions. Please also read our Delivery Information as these terms also govern the sale of products by Regency to you.
Your order is an offer to Regency to buy the product(s) in your order. When you place an order to purchase a product from Regency, we will send you an e-mail confirming receipt of your order and containing the details of your order (the "Order Confirmation E-mail"). The Order Confirmation E-mail is acknowledgement that we have received your order, and does not confirm acceptance of your offer to buy the product(s) ordered. We only accept your offer, and conclude the contract of sale for a product ordered by you, when we dispatch the product to you and send e-mail confirmation to you that we've dispatched the product to you (the "Dispatch Confirmation E-mail"). If your order is dispatched in more than one package, you may receive a separate Dispatch Confirmation E-mail for each package, and each Disptach Confirmation E-mail and corresponding dispatch will conclude a separate contract of sale between us for the product(s) specified in that Dispatch Confirmation E-mail. Your contract is with China Business Limited. Without affecting your right of withdrawal set out in the Returns Section below, you can cancel your order for a product at no cost any time before we send the Dispatch Confirmation E-mail relating to that product.
All specifications and packaging details mentioned on Order Confirmation / Invoice are binding. Other specifications and packaging details are subject to change without notice.
Infestation: Despite our best quality control measures, as our goods are all natural, we cannot guarantee that goods will not at a later date, be subject to infestation, unless specifically vacuum treated or heat treated. Even after treatments, treated goods can be subject to re-infestation if incorrectly stored. Untreated seeds, herbs and spices in any form, treated with approved chemical fumigants, are still susceptible to possible infestation, as insect eggs are not destroyed by current chemical fumigants.
Please review our Returns Policy which applies to products sold by Regency, which outlines our straightforward 30 days return policy. Regency does not take title to returned items until the items arrive at the returns address destination. At our discretion, a refund may be issued without requiring a return. In this situation, Regency does not take title to the refunded item.
Pricing and Availability
We list availability information for products sold by us on the website included on each product information page. Beyond what we say on those pages or otherwise on the website, we cannot be more specific about availability. As we process your order, we will inform you by email as soon as possible if any products you order turn out to be unavailable, in which case you will not be charged for those products.
Please note that unless otherwise stated on the website, delivery estimates are just that. They are not guaranteed delivery times, and should not be relied upon as such.
Despite our best efforts, a small number of the items on our website may be mispriced. We will verify pricing when processing your order and before we take payment. If we have made a mistake and a product's correct price is higher than the price on the website, we may either contact you before shipping to request whether you want to buy the product at the correct price, or cancel your order. If a product's correct price is lower than our stated price, we will charge the lower amount and send you the product.
When ordering products from Regency for delivery outside of Hong Kong you may be subject to import control, including but not limited to, import duties and taxes, which are levied once the package reaches the specified destination. Any additional charges for customs clearance must be borne by you; we have no control over these charges. Customs policies vary widely from country to country, so you should contact your local customs office for further information. Additionally, please note that when ordering from Regency, you are considered the importer of record and must comply with all laws and regulations of the country in which you are receiving the products. Your privacy is important to us and we would like our international customers to be aware that cross-border deliveries are subject to opening and inspection by customs authorities. If the package is rejected by the customs of your home country or otherwise and returned to Regency you will be responsible for the return shipping charges for the product.
Resale is not permitted
All products sold are for customers' use only, and shall not be commercially resold. Regency may refuse any purchasing order which it suspects is for commercial resale.
Amendments to Conditions of Sale
We reserve the right to make changes to our website, policies, and terms and conditions, including these Conditions of Sale, at any time. You will be subject to the terms and conditions, policies and Conditions of Sale in force at the time that you order products from us, unless any change to those terms and conditions, policies or these Conditions of Sale is required to be made by law or government authority (in which case it may apply to orders previously placed by you). If any of these Conditions of Sale is deemed invalid, void, or for any reason unenforceable, that condition will be deemed severable, and will not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining condition.
