Our VAT number is 404617224.

We operate the website https://www.mysquaremetre.co.uk

Contacting us. To contact us via email us at hello@mysquaremetre.co.uk. How to give us formal notice of any matter under the Contract is set out in clause 18.2.

Our contract with you. 

Our contract. These terms and conditions (Terms) apply to the order by you and supply of Goods and Services by us to you (Contract). They apply to the exclusion of any other terms that you seek to impose or incorporate, or which are implied by law, trade custom, practice or course of dealing.

Entire agreement. The Contract is the entire agreement between you and us in relation to its subject matter. You acknowledge that you have not relied on any statement, promise or representation or assurance or warranty that is not set out in the Contract.

Changes. We may change any aspects of these terms at any time. Any changes to these terms will apply from the date that we post them on our site.

Language. These Terms and the Contract are made only in the English language.

Placing an order and its acceptance

Placing your order. Please follow the onscreen prompts to place your order. You may only submit an order using the method set out on the site. Each order is an offer by you to buy the services specified in the order (Services) subject to these Terms.

Correcting input errors. Our order process allows you to check and amend any errors before submitting your order to us. Please check the order carefully before confirming it. You are responsible for ensuring that your order is complete and accurate.

Acknowledging receipt of your order. After you place your order, you will receive an email from us acknowledging that we have received it, but please note that this does not mean that your order has been accepted. Our acceptance of your order will take place as described in clause 3.4.

Accepting your order. Our acceptance of your order takes place when we send an email to you to accept it (Order Confirmation), at which point and on which date (Commencement Date) the Contract between you and us will come into existence. The Contract will relate only to those Goods and Services confirmed in the Order Confirmation.

If we cannot accept your order. If we are unable to supply you with the Goods and Services for any reason, we will inform you of this by email and we will not process your order. If you have already paid for the Services, we will refund you the full amount.

Our Goods and Services

Descriptions and illustrations. Any descriptions or illustrations on our site are published for the sole purpose of giving an approximate idea of the services described in them. They will not form part of the Contract or have any contractual force. Similarly, when we provide you with statistics and figures concerning the planting of wildflowers, such statistics and figures are an approximation only and should not be relied upon as being a wholly accurate summation of the number of wildflowers planted on any particular parcel of land.

Reasonable care and skill. We warrant to you that the Services will be provided using reasonable care and skill.

Time for performance. We will use all reasonable endeavours to meet any performance dates specified in the Order Confirmation, but any such dates are estimates only and failure to perform the Services and provide the Goods by such dates will not give you the right to terminate the Contract. By placing an order, you hereby acknowledge and accept that the Services may not be provided at the time of placing the order. In most cases, we will make marketing posts on social media, primarily Instagram, and our website (where applicable) within 2-3 weeks of receipt of the order. Planting of wildflowers will occur later and generally around 18 months from placing of the order. This time period is subject to change should acquisition of appropriate land take longer than anticipated.

Long term use of land. When we acquire land for re-wilding, we generally secure it for 10 years. During this 10-year period we split it into parcels of 1 square metre each and plant wildflowers as part of the Services defined in the order. After 10 years, the land may be permanently re-wilded, converted to agricultural use, or transferred to community management. We will endeavour to inform you of any changes tothe nature of the land.

Your obligations

It is your responsibility to ensure that:

the terms of your order are complete and accurate;

you cooperate with us in all matters relating to the Goods and Services;

you provide us with such information and materials we may reasonably require in order to supply the Goods and Services, and ensure that such information is complete and accurate in all material respects; 

If our ability to perform the Services and supply the Goods is prevented or delayed by any failure by you to fulfil any obligation listed in clause 6.1 (Your Default):

we will be entitled to suspend performance of the Services and delivery of the Goods until you remedy Your Default, and to rely on Your Default to relieve us from the performance of the Services and supply of the Goods, in each case to the extent Your Default prevents or delays performance of the Services or supply of the Services. In certain circumstances Your Default may entitle us to terminate the Contract under clause 15 (Termination);

we will not be responsible for any costs or losses you sustain or incur arising directly or indirectly from our failure or delay to perform the Services or supply the Goods; and

it will be your responsibility to reimburse us on written demand for any costs or losses we sustain or incur arising directly or indirectly from Your Default.

You agree that you will only use the output of the Services for fair and honest use. For example, you will not use the output of the Services to make any false or exaggerated statement regarding your business and its adoption of green processes.

You agree that you will not modify the output of the Services in any way and will only display and share marketing posts in the manner authorised in the Order Confirmation.

Charges 

In consideration of us providing the Services or supplying the Goods you must pay our charges (Charges) in accordance with this clause 8.

The Charges are the prices quoted on our site at the time you submit your order.

If you wish to change the scope of the Services or an order for Goods after we accept your order, and we agree to such change, we will modify the Charges accordingly.

We use our best efforts to ensure that the prices stated for the Goods and Services are correct at the time when the relevant information was entered into the system. However, please see clause 8.7 for what happens if we discover an error in the price of the Services you ordered.

Our Charges may change from time to time, but changes will not affect any order you have already placed. 

Our Charges are exclusive of VAT. Where VAT is payable in respect of some or all of the Goods and Services you must pay us such additional amounts in respect of VAT, at the applicable rate, at the same time as you pay the Charges. 

It is always possible that, despite our reasonable efforts, some of the Goods and Services on our site may be incorrectly priced. If the correct price for the Goods and Services is higher than the price stated on our site, we will contact you in writing as soon as possible to inform you of this error and we will give you the option of continuing to purchase the Goods and Services at the correct price or cancelling your order. We will not process your order until we have your instructions. If we are unable to contact you using the contact details you provided during the order process, we will treat the order as cancelled and notify you in writing. However, if we mistakenly accept and process your order where a pricing error is obvious and unmistakeable and could reasonably have been recognised by you as a mispricing, we may cancel supply of the Goods and Services and refund you any sums you have paid.

How to pay

Payment for the Goods and Services is in advance. We will take your payment upon acceptance of your order in respect of one-off services. If you are purchasing a subscription we will take an initial payment upon acceptance of your order and subsequent payments at the intervals specified on our site.
