TERMS AND CONDITIONS
Terms of Order
These terms of order in no way affect your statutory rights as a consumer (“you”).
At the time when you place your order, no contract is subsisted unless and until Filters Lane (hereinafter may refer as “we”) has accepted your payment. After acceptance of payment, a Confirmation Email will be sent to you afterwards. “Workday” for Filters Lane online shop means any days other than public bank holidays, Saturdays and Sundays. If you failed to receive any confirmation from us after two workdays from making your purchase, you shall contact email@example.com to check the purchase status.
To ensure a next-week delivery or collection at shop, the order must be placed before 12:00a.m. midnight of every Friday.
You are solely responsible for checking the accuracy of your order and personal details as stated in the Confirmation Email. Filters Lane shall deem all information known is accurate if there is no communication with us made by you within 24 hours (“Confirmation Period”) after the Confirmation Email has been sent (“Confirmation Email”). Upon expiration of the Confirmation Period, any changes made by you to your order or personal details shall be operated under the terms “Change Your Order” provided herein. A Notification Email will be sent to you after the ordered goods are dispatched or are ready for collection (“Notification Email”). A tracking number will be included in the Notification Email, if any. Filters Lane reserves the right to refuse completion of any order which is deemed to not have been conducted properly due to any reason or mistake or any third party’s refusal. Filters Lane retains the right to not complete any order providing that the monies have not been taken from you. Filters Lane’s goods/products cannot be bought for resale without prior permission from us. For reseller or wholesale enquiry, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Filters Lane dispatches on every Tuesday (“Dispatchment Time Frame”). In the case where the Dispatchment Time Frame falls within public holiday, we will dispatch on the next workday. You will be informed when the dispatchment has been made. In the event that we are informed by the delivery agent of their inability to deliver the goods within 3-4 workdays, Filters Lane will inform you immediately by email.
You shall be liable for a standard delivery cost of HKD$30, which is applicable when you opt for the delivery service. Please observe carefully of the delivery options available at check-out.

In the event that you opt for self-pickup at the designated service points provided by the delivery agent, the customer is solely responsible for ascertaining the correct store code is inserted at check-out, and you must provide an accurate mobile telephone number to Filters Lane in order to carry out such delivery service. You shall observe the delivery agent’s procedure and time frame for such delivery service. Filters Lane will not provide newly roasted or fresher beans after we complete packing your orders, or if you fail to collect the goods before the best serving time of the coffee beans expires.

For all coffee beans ordered, you shall collect the goods within 7 days of receiving the Notification Email. We will not provide newly roasted or fresher beans after we have completed packing your orders, or if you fail to collect the coffee beans before the best serving time expires.
In order to collect the goods in person at shop, you need to present either the Confirmation Email or Notification Email, with the payment card that completed the transaction. If collection is to be made by someone other than the original purchaser, the collector must present his/her own photo identification card with a copy of the Confirmation Email or Notification Email. We may retain a record of the collector’s photo identification card.
The collector needs to sign a confirmation of receipt of the goods when the goods are collected and by doing so, you accept the responsibility for the goods ordered from that moment on. If the collector is not the original purchaser, then you accept this signature as an evidence of fulfilment of your order by Filters Lane. You also accept the associated transfer of responsibility.
