We are: Imogen Davison trading as Sugar Buttons Cakes
of 108 Constitution Hill, Norwich, Norfolk NR3 4BB. (Baker)
You are: The person (or persons) who have received the proposal (where there is more than one person, they shall be jointly and severally liable).(Client)
TERMS & CONDITIONS
PRICE & PAYMENT
Verbal or email instructions by the Client to proceed will constitute an acceptance in full of these Terms including the Price. Any invoices rendered from time to time are payable within 7 days and payment is not deemed to have been made unless it has been made in full
The Price includes the design and creation, baking and decorating to complete the Assignment. There is no VAT
The Price also includes any expenses that will be incurred by the Baker, unless otherwise agreed in writing by the parties
A non-refundable Deposit of 50% of the Price shall be paid upon entering this agreement and the Baker’s invoice for the Deposit will follow
The Price and the Deposit (and any expenses) shall be the Fees of the Baker. The Baker shall invoice the Client for the Price less the Deposit 35 days before the Event and all Fees shall be paid in advance (and at the latest 30 days before the Event) in full
If payment is not made in accordance with the above clauses, the Baker reserves the right to charge an administration fee of £50 to late payments together with interest at the rate prescribed by the Late Payment of Commercial Debt (Interest) Act 1998 from the date payment was due until the date payment is made
CANCELLATION OF AGREEMENT
Once the Deposit has been paid, the Assignment can be cancelled by either party in writing or by email subject to the matters set out in this clause
If the Baker cancels the Assignment, the Fees paid at the time of cancellation will be repaid to the Client within 14 days of cancellation and no further sum or compensation will be payable to the Client by the Baker arising from such cancellation
If the Client cancels the Assignment within 14 days of entering into the contract, then the Deposit shall be repaid to the Client in full. This right to cancel shall not be available to the Client if the Assignment is to create bespoke Goods, when the Deposit shall be non-refundable in its entirety
If the Client cancels the Assignment more than 14 days after entering into this contract, and at least 30 days before the Event, then the Deposit is forfeited and will not be repayable to the Client in any circumstances
Additionally, if the Client cancels this Assignment within 30 days or less of the Event, then the Fees in full (less any monies paid) shall be due to the Baker
DESIGN, CHANGES & ALTERATIONS
TO THE ASSIGNMENT
The Client acknowledges that the Baker owns all right, title and interest in and to the design created in the Assignment and that the Client has no right to use it outside the express terms of this agreement. The Baker grants a right to the Client to use the design, limited to all reasonable non-commercial uses for the purposes of the Assignment
So far as any goodwill is generated by the Client’s use of the design, it shall accrue to the benefit of the Baker
The Baker reserves the right to use images of the Baker’s design and Goods created during the Assignment for marketing, promotional, competition and editorial purposes
Slight design changes are at the Baker’s discretion and are not grounds for a refund. All cake designs are subject to artistic licence and the Client acknowledges this in placing their order
If, for any reason, the design has to be changed more than marginally, then the Baker will agree this in advance with the Client in writing. This will incur additional Fees
Flavour changes will only be accepted up to 21 days prior to the Event, and entirely at the sole discretion of the Baker and subject to availability. This may incur additional Fees and should be confirmed in writing
If there are any complaints about the design or the appearance of the Goods, they must be expressed at point of collection
Any change of date or postponement will be agreed subject to our availability and will be deemed a cancellation by you and our cancellation terms here shall apply, unless we agree otherwise in writing
The Baker will not be held responsible for any allergies or reactions caused by the Goods. Goods can be made without certain allergens, but they are still made in a kitchen using some or all of these ingredients, and regrettably the Baker cannot, therefore, guarantee the absence of traces of them.*
It is the Client’s responsibility to inform consumers of any risks.
*I have coeliac disease myself so I am fully aware of the severity involved with cross contamination. I adhere to very strict allergen procedures
DAMAGE IN TRANSIT
The Baker cannot be held responsible for any damage to the Goods that may be caused during transportation, once the Goods for the Assignment have been handed over to the Client for transportation.
Instructions for safely transporting and storing the Goods will be given.
VENUE SET UP
It is the Clients responsibility to ensure you have provided The Baker with the set-up details and location of the cake at the venue
The display location should be level, stable and strong enough to hold the cake. It should not be in front of a heat source, in a sunny window or in a location where it could be knocked easily by passing guests
We will photograph the cake at the venue as proof that it has been delivered and set up and left in perfect condition
Once the cake has been delivered and set up, the Baker has no further responsibility for its safe keeping or correct storage unless otherwise agreed in writing
STAND & DISPLAY ITEM HIRE
A fully refundable breakage deposit is applied for the hire of cake stands or dessert table display items. It is the Clients responsibility to return the cake stand to the Baker clean and in the condition that it was supplied
The Baker shall use reasonable endeavours to meet any performance date, but such dates shall be estimates only
Variations to the Services may only be agreed in writing by both parties.
The Fees will be paid after invoices rendered from time to time. No VAT is applicable. Payment terms are 5 days, and payment is not deemed to have been made until the Fees have been paid in full. If payment is not made in full and within time, the Services may be suspended and payment in advance may be required before the Services are recommenced
The Baker reserves the right to require some or all of the Fees to be paid in advance of the commencement of the Services where applicable and agreed in writing
Each party will keep the confidential information of the other party and any third party confidential and secret, and only use it for the purposes of supplying the Services or making proper use of the Services. Each party recognises and accepts its obligations with the regard to the control and processing of personal data under the current data protection legislation and regulations. For more information on this, please see our privacy notice on our website
The Baker will use reasonable care and skill in performing the Services.
The Baker’s liability in respect of any loss of goodwill, loss of business, loss of profits, loss of anticipated savings, loss of use or for any other consequential, special or indirect loss or damage will be nil
In respect of any other direct losses (in Contract or Tort) the total liability of the Baker will not exceed the return of all payments received, and thus, the limit of liability shall not exceed the value of the Services provided
Nothing in these Terms will exclude or limit liability for death or serious injury caused by the Baker’s negligence
The Services may be terminated if the payment of the Fees is not made in accordance with these Terms or if the Client commits a material breach of any of these Terms and fails to remedy the breach within 14 days of being notified in writing, or if the Client enters into any form of insolvency arrangement. Upon termination, the Client shall immediately pay any outstanding sums to the Baker
If the Baker is limited or hindered from providing any Goods or Services booked by the Client due to circumstances beyond its control eg. Government intervention, Acts of God, civil disturbance, war, national or local disaster, strikes, labour disputes, then the liability of the Baker to the Client shall not exceed the amount paid by the Client for the Goods or Services. The Deposit shall be non-refundable, (being an approximation of the value of Goods or Services already rendered) and the Baker shall (where the value of the Goods or Services already delivered to the Client is greater than the value of the Deposit) be entitled to be paid additionally for all Goods and Services delivered to the Client up to that point. The Baker shall not be liable for any additional losses incurred by the Client in such circumstances
Nothing in these Terms is intended to create a partnership or joint venture between the Baker and the Client, and no party has the right to act as agent for the other or to bind the other party in any way
These Terms and any dispute arising from them shall be governed by the laws of England and Wales
