We can only vouch for Cosi Tabellini prices on the official Cosi Tabellini UK website. We cannot vouch for the reliability of prices stated on shopping directories or through any other third party.
All prices listed on our website are correct at the time of entering the information; however, due to fluctuations in the price of our raw materials, particularly the key component of pewter - tin, we reserve the right to change prices of any product at any time and all former prices lose their validity. Any such price changes will be applied instantly to the website allowing you to be aware of them before ordering.
Special offers on the website do not reflect general pricing.

If you feel this is not the case, then please contact customer services within 7 working days, and we will offer you a refund if there is a genuine error.
However, the following considerations need to be borne in mind:
• Photos of products may not be to scale, so always check the dimensions listed in the product review.
• As all of the pewter products are handmade, there will be slight variations from the product photo to what you actually receive.
• Colours are reproduced as accurately as possible within photographs, however, there might be slight variations due to the lighting set-up when the photographs were taken, and also due to variations between different computer monitor / screen settings, and therefore the accuracy of colours cannot be guaranteed.
Cosi Tabellini UK will make every effort to respond quickly to all (applicable) email messages, however, it is under no obligation to do this, or to maintain your submitted comments in confidence, or pay compensation of any kind for your comments or submissions.
Each provision of the Terms & Conditions shall be construed as separately applying and surviving even if for any reason one or other of those provisions is held to be inapplicable or unenforceable in any circumstances.

Ordering & Payment
Cosi Tabellini UK accepts all of the following credit/debit cards and PayPal:
Visa, Mastercard, Maestro, Visa Electron and JCB.
All credit and debit card orders are processed securely by Worldpay; Cosi Tabellini UK does not handle or process any card data for orders placed online.
All credit and debit cardholders are subject to validation checks and authorisation by the card issuer. If the issuer of your payment card refuses to authorise payment to us, we will not be liable for any delay or non-delivery and the order will be cancelled.
If you prefer to place a credit / debit card order over the telephone, you will find the order number of an item on its product page. For some items, you need to choose colour, size or other specifications before the order number is shown.
All prices for Cosi Tabellini UK items delivered within the EU include VAT; the VAT being charged is set at the UK VAT rate. For items delivered to a non-EU address, or non EU VAT area, VAT isn't charged, and the items are zero-rated, but we maintain one price for each item as shown on the product pages of our website. Our international flat-rated pricing policy means that the total price you pay us for products is always the same, regardless of whether or not UK VAT is chargeable on the sale. Therefore non-EU customers will be responsible for VAT, as well as any other import duties and local taxes, on their purchases.
Reservation of Proprietary Rights
All goods delivered remain property of Cosi Tabellini UK until fully paid.
Please refer to our Ordering & Payment page for further information.
We do everything we can to ensure your online shopping experience is as safe and secure as possible and we only use reputable security devices and systems within our security measures.
All credit and debit card data (such as bank account number, sort code, name and address) will automatically be encrypted in transit using the industry-standard Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) protocol with an encryption length of 128 bits (which is the highest level commercially available, and the same level of encryption used by large banks to keep their information secure), ensuring that no third party can have access to your personal data.
As part of our security-conscious approach, we also use the Address Verification System (AVS), which means that the billing address must match the address held by your card issuer exactly. Should the details not match, then the transaction will be declined. If you have received an AVS error, but have had money debited from your account, then don’t panic, as the money is in ‘pre-authorisation with your bank, and it will be returned to your account shortly.
For all payments online, you will be required to provide the security code for your credit or debit card. This is a security measure we require for all transactions. The security code (or CVV2 number) is only listed on the card, and hence you need to physically be in possession of the card to provide the correct number. The CVV2 number is a three digit number on the back of the card on the signature strip, although on American Express cards, it appears as a four digit number on the top right of the front of the card. If you cannot read your CVV2 number, you will need to speak to your card issuer.
Our store is hosted on Shopify Inc. 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 Shopify’s data storage, databases and general Shopify application. They store your data on a secure server behind a firewall.
All credit and debit card orders are processed securely by the Worldpay payment gateway, and both Worldpay and Shopify will store your credit card data. It is encrypted through the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI-DSS). Your purchase transaction data is stored only as long as is necessary to complete your purchase transaction. After that is complete, your purchase transaction information is deleted.
Please refer to our Technical & Internet page for further information.
Cosi Tabellini UK may, in our sole discretion, terminate your account for violation of the letter or spirit of these Terms & Conditions at any time, and without reason.
