That acceptance will be deemed complete and will be deemed for all purposes to have been effectively communicated to you at the time Tapa coffee sends the e-mail to you (whether or not you receive that e-mail).


Tapa coffee reserves the right refuse any order which is deemed to have not been conducted in the correct way or where any foul play may have taken place.
