You are given the opportunity to review and amend the contents of the Shopping Basket, including removing items added to the Shopping Basket and amending quantities for each item in the Shopping Basket.

Because these Products are hand prepared, the weight you receive may vary from the weight displayed on the Website at the time of the completion of your purchase. If the weight of the Product delivered to you exceeds the displayed weight, we will not charge you more for the additional weight. If the weight of the delivered Product is below the displayed weight, we will refund you the value of the price difference between the paid for weight and the actual weight. Where a product falls under this category of hand prepared products, we will prominently display relevant information on the Product page.

The weight you receive may vary from the weight displayed on the Website at the time of the completion of your purchase. If the weight of the Product delivered to you exceeds the displayed weight, we will not charge you more for the additional weight. If the weight of the delivered Product is below the displayed weight, we will refund you the value of the price difference between the paid for weight and the actual weight.

  • 6.15 We will fulfil (deliver) an order to you (subject to clause 6.10) unless we receive from you a cancellation of your entire order that we are able to meet.

We reserve the right to deliver and charge in full for any order where we cannot meet the cancellation request. Any payments you have made for orders which have been properly cancelled will be re-credited to you. Despite the foregoing, if you are a consumer, then you may also cancel the order in accordance with clause 10.3 below insofar as the order is for non-perishable Products or contains non-perishable Products.

  • 6.16 Despite the above provision, you are entitled to cancel a payment for Products where fraudulent use has been made of your payment card by a person not acting, or to be treated as acting, as your agent.

Disclosure of your Information

We may share your personal information with any member of our group at this time or in the future, which means our subsidiaries, our ultimate holding company and its subsidiaries, as defined in section 1159 of the UK Companies Act 2006.

We may share your information with selected third parties including:

  • Payment gateways and other payment processors

  • Analytics and search engine providers that assist us in the improvement and optimisation of our site

  • Business partners, suppliers and sub-contractors for the performance of any contract we enter into, either with them or with you

We may disclose your personal information to third parties:

  • In the event that we sell or buy any business or assets, in which case we may disclose your personal data to the prospective seller or buyer of such business or assets.

  • If Armando's or substantially all of its assets are acquired by a third party, in which case personal data held by it about its customers will be one of the transferred assets.

  • If we are under a duty to disclose or share your personal data in order to comply with any legal obligation, or in order to enforce or apply our terms of use or to protect the rights, property, or safety of Armando's, our customers, or others. This includes exchanging information with other companies and organisations for the purposes of fraud protection and credit risk reduction.

We will not knowingly sell or otherwise distribute your personal information to third parties, other than under the scenarios described in this section. That is our promise to you. 

Where we Store your Personal Information

Our store is hosted on WIX. They provide us with the online e-commerce platform that allows us to sell our products and services to you. Your data is stored through WIX’s data storage, databases and the general Shopify application. They store your data on a secure server behind a firewall. For more insight, you may also want to read WIX’s Privacy Statement.

In order help us meet our contractual obligation to deliver orders to you, your your delivery information may be shared and stored with external courier services and other delivery partners.

For email marketing purposes, we store email addresses and subscription preferences with both WIX and MAIL CHIMP (MAIL CHIMP is our email marketing distribution application).

To enable our operations team to collate orders on a daily basis, send out our own overnight orders to our suppliers, put together delivery routes, and capture internal financial data for our own profitability calculations, we MAY also store your information in a secure database outside of WIX.

The data that we collect from you may be transferred to, and stored at, a destination outside the European Economic Area ("EEA"). By submitting your personal data, you agree to this transfer, storing or processing. We will take all steps reasonably necessary to ensure that your data is treated securely and in accordance with this privacy policy.

Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. Although we will do our best to protect your personal data, we cannot guarantee the security of your data transmitted to our site; any transmission is at your own risk. Once we have received your information, we will use strict procedures and security features to try to prevent unauthorised access.

In particular, remember that certain providers may be located in or have facilities that are located a different jurisdiction than either you or us. So if you elect to proceed with a transaction that involves the services of a third-party service provider, then your information may become subject to the laws of the jurisdiction(s) in which that service provider or its facilities are located.

Data Retention & Storage

We will retain your personal information where we have an ongoing legitimate business need to do so, e.g. while you hold an account with us or to enable us to meet our legal, tax or accounting obligations.

We will destroy or permanently anonymise your personal information at the point that we no longer need to process it for our ongoing legitimate business needs or for any legal reason. If this is not possible (for example, because your personal information has been stored in backup archives), then we will securely store it and isolate it from any further processing until deletion is possible.

Contacting You

We will contact you via email when you have placed an order with us to confirm your order. We will also notify you via email when your order is out for delivery. In some cases we will outsource the notification to our delivery partners. This can be the courier service we are using to deliver a parcel to you.

We may occasionally need to contact you to enable us to fulfil your order correctly, for example if an item you have ordered is unavailable or if your delivery day needs to be changed. We will normally try to reach you by telephone or email.

We will not send you any marketing messages without your explicit consent. You can choose your marketing preferences on the checkout pages every time you place an order with us. You can also update or change your preferences by contacting our office or unsubscribing from any marketing email directly. We will always honour your updated preferences.

Security is important to us and we understand that when making payments online you need to have confidence in the website you are transacting through. We have highly secure facilities and processes to put your mind at ease.

We will never have access to any of your card details. At no time will any card details be stored on our website’s servers. At no time will we ask you to save your credit card details with us.

We process all payments through established online payment gateways that are certified to the highest security standards (PCI Level 1 Service Provider). You can confirm their certification in Visa’s Registry of Service Providers.

Armando's payment pages use industry standard Secure Sockets Layer (SSL), i.e. our payment pages begin with "https" and not "http". SSL does two main things: (1) encrypt data being transmitted and (2) verify that our browser is talking to the right payment gateway servers to minimise middle-man interception risk.

As part of the checkout process we MAY undertake the following checks to prevent fraudulent use of cards:

  1. CVC check (card verification code) - The CVV is a 3 or 4 digit number on either the front or the back of a card This check verifies that the customer has entered the correct code as shown on the card, a good indicator that they have the card physically present in their hands when making the order. Card companies forbid the storage of CVV codes, so if a credit card is stolen online it would not be useable.

  2. Address Verification System (AVS) - AVS compares the numeric portion of the customer’s billing address and post code to the information on file with the card issuer. This check is also a useful indicator for determining whether the payment is being made by the genuine card holder.

  3. Country of card issue - This check looks at the IP address of the computer from where the order was made and compares the country of the buyer’s billing address to the country the buyer placed the order from. This is used as an additional check and there's no fixed rule on rejection/acceptance since an order could be placed from abroad if, for example, a person is travelling.
