Placing an order
When placing an order with us you are requested to read and agree to these terms and conditions. Any orders placed by you must be placed in accordance with these terms and conditions. If you are unsure about any of the content of our terms and conditions please contact Customer Services at [email protected] before you place an order.

Acceptance of your order
After receipt of your order we will send you an order acknowledgement email detailing the product(s) you have ordered and confirming the prices of the products. If you do not receive this order acknowledgement email within 5 days of placing your order please contact Customer Services at [email protected] .
The order acknowledgement email is not an acceptance of your order. Acceptance of your order and formation of the contract will only take place once we have confirmed your credit or debit card authorisation for your order and we have sent you a dispatch confirmation email confirming that the products you have ordered have been dispatched from our warehouse.
We reserve the right to decline any order you place. If we, for any reason, do not accept or cannot fulfill your order, no payment shall be taken under normal circumstances. If we have taken payment any such sums shall be refunded as soon as possible and in any event within 14 days.
Delivery, Risk and Ownership
Your order will be fulfilled by the estimated delivery date set out in the dispatch confirmation, unless prevented by circumstances beyond our reasonable control. If we are unable to meet the estimated delivery date because of such circumstances, we will contact you with a revised estimated delivery date. Whilst we make every effort to deliver all your goods in the agreed time, we will not be liable if we fail to do so in part or in full due to circumstances beyond our control.
We will deliver the products to the address you give us. Delivery will be completed once we have delivered the products to the address including, where relevant, any alternative address provided in your order.
If we are unable to deliver the products on the delivery date (if, for example, no one is available at your address to receive the products) we will follow any delivery instruction you may have given or attempt to leave your products in a safe place. If this is not possible, our carrier will leave a note advising of where your products have been returned to, and how to either arrange a re-delivery or collect them.
The products will be your responsibility from completion of delivery.
You shall only own the products once we have received payment in full of all sums due in respect of them, including all delivery charges if applicable.
This returns policy is specific to online purchases by consumers, it is not applicable to any purchases made in a Godiva UK store or concession or to purchases made by businesses. We are as passionate about customer satisfaction as we are about making chocolate. We hold ourselves to the highest standards…so you can, too. Your order is guaranteed to arrive in perfect condition, no matter the weather, containing the elegant packaging and quality chocolate customers expect from Godiva UK.
If, for any reason, you are not completely satisfied with the condition of your product, or you receive an incorrect product, simply contact us to return your order for a prompt replacement, refund, or exchange. You will be asked for proof of purchase.

Consumer cancellation rights under the Distance Selling Regulations 2000 or the Consumer Contracts Information, Cancellation and Additional Charges Regulations 2013 do not apply to products which have been personalised, or made subject to the buyer’s specifications or which are perishable or liable to deteriorate or expire rapidly. As our products are perishable, and may also have been personalized, these cancellation rights do not apply to sales through this website; however, this does not affect our Returns Policy above.
We will provide products that are of satisfactory quality, fit for purpose and as described at the time of purchase and as a consumer, you have legal rights in relation to products that are faulty or not as described. Nothing in these terms and conditions, including the Returns Policy above, seeks to exclude or limit your legal rights as a consumer. Advice about your legal rights is available from your local Citizens’ Advice Bureau. For both consumers and businesses if we fail to comply with these terms and conditions, we are responsible for loss or damage you suffer that is a foreseeable result of our breach of these terms and conditions or our negligence, but we are not responsible for any loss or damage that is not foreseeable. If you are a business we have no liability to you for any loss of profit, loss of business, business interruption or loss of business opportunity or goodwill whether or not foreseeable.
Nothing in these terms and conditions seeks to limit or exclude our liability for death or personal injury caused by our negligence; or for fraud or fraudulent misrepresentation.
In the event of any dispute, these terms and the agreement between us shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of England and Wales and any disputes will be decided only by the English courts.
