Terms and Conditions
Delivery Terms and Post out time-scales:
We endeavour to process orders within 72 hours of receiving the order but cannot guarantee this. Typically, most online orders will be processed and posted out within 24hours.
In our shop we quote the price of the goods in the basket plus taxes and any postage and packing fees as relevant.
We offer standard Business 48 service by Royal Mail (Monday to Friday) or Optional Courier service may be offered depending upon the weight of the parcel and the location for delivery. We are unable to guarantee a next day delivery service on any item and reserve the right to deliver later than expected where adverse weather conditions, mechanical failures or seasonal holidays impact on delivery times.
If (for example due to the value of the goods or the weight of the goods) it is not possible to send out orders by your preferred delivery method we will make our best efforts to find a suitable alternative.
Payment is due in advance and in full on all orders. We accept credit/debit card, paypal or BACs. We reserve the right to withhold ordered goods until confirmation of payment is received.
Returns policy: (Not trade sales)
In many cases if you change your mind about a product you have purchased from us you can send the product back to us and can expect a refund. We ask that customers exercising this right to change their mind only return the goods if they are in their original condition i.e. UN-USED, with original seals unbroken, with all paperwork and in the original packaging.
Please read the notes below for how to return your goods to Four Element Salt.

What if my goods are undelivered?
From time to time goods can go astray. Please contact us if your goods have not arrived within 5 working days of your placing the order. We will let you know how and when the goods were posted out and assist you in finding out where the parcel has got to!
Non-delivery due to incorrect or incomplete address.
Four Element Salt cannot be held liable in any way for goods that are undelivered or are delivered to the wrong address if the address supplied to us is incorrect or incomplete. No form of refund can be claimed and no replacement goods will be sent.
What if the address is correct but my goods might be lost in the Royal Mail post?
If sent by Royal Mail we will not be able to track the order within the UK. We can provide evidence of postage from our warehouse that will help you support your claim for loss from the Royal Mail.
As your item was posted by Royal Mail you will need to check at the local Royal Mail/Post Office depot after 14 days has passed to see if the undelivered pack is there awaiting collection. Any expenses incurred by you in visiting the Depot are not refundable by Four Element Salt. If the pack has still not arrived after 14days contact our offices and we will email information to assist you in making your claim from the Royal Mail. You are required to wait 14 days from the date the order was posted out to you before the Royal Mail/Post Office will accept that they have lost your package, it is at this point that you may make a claim for the loss from them.
Four Element Salt would not normally send replacement goods unless the fault in postage was our own in which case we will replace the goods. No refund for lost goods will be given by Four Element Salt unless it is clear that the loss was due to a mistake created by us.
If the goods were dispatched by Courier then we can track this for you and find out the status of your goods.
Where delivery is attempted by our nominated courier but is unsuccessful then Four Element Salt’s obligations for delivery are deemed complete and we cannot be held liable for any refund against the price of delivery we charged at the time your order was placed.
If you are not at home when the Delivery driver attempts to deliver your goods a card will be left advising you that delivery was attempted and asking you to contact the delivery company to reschedule the delivery. When you contact them you will be given the choice of having the goods redelivered another day, or, the option for you to pick up the goods from the depot where it is held (Any expenses incurred by you in visiting the Depot are not refundable by Four Element Salt). If you do not contact them within 24 hours your goods will be returned to Four Element Salt and our terms for restocking non delivered items will come into effect.

Notes about delivery
From time to time customers give us an address where they may not be when the delivery company attempts to deliver their order. Customers are invited to leave us a note about delivery eg ‘leave in garage if not at home’ or ‘leave with neighbour’ that Four Element Salt can choose to place on the front of the parcel to help the delivery company. We do not guarantee that the delivery company will follow the request.
If you have added a note to your order giving permission for the delivery company to leave the package without a signature, or with someone else or at a specific location that is not your address then Four Element Salt cannot accept liability in any way if the pack goes missing, if it is claimed to have not been delivered or if has been delivered and not passed to you. No refund will be given or replacement sent. In this instance, you will need to make a claim personally for the value of the lost item and postage to the Carrier for the value of the goods.
Restocking non-delivered items
When goods are returned to Four Element Salt due to non-delivery we will immediately restock the item and refund you the original cost of the goods after deducting a 20% restocking fee and any and all postage and handling fees we have incurred.
