3.3 You are agreeing to pay for the Product you have ordered.
- FORMATION OF A CONTRACT BETWEEN YOU AND US.
4.1. After placing an order, you will receive an e-mail from us acknowledging that we have received your order. Please note that this does not mean that your order has been accepted. Your order constitutes an offer to us to buy a Product. All orders are subject to availability and acceptance by us, and we will confirm such acceptance to you by sending you an e-mail that confirms that the Product has been dispatched (the “Dispatch Confirmation”). The contract between us (“Contract”) will only be formed when we send you the Dispatch Confirmation.
4.2. We will not process your order until payment has been received in full in accordance with the provisions of clause 7.
4.3. If you make a mistake with your order, you may be able to correct any mistakes made by email prior to your order being processed. If your order has already been processed you will be unable to amend your order. If your order has already been dispatched, please return the Products to us in accordance with our Returns Policy.
4.4. The Contract will relate only to those Products whose dispatch we have confirmed in the Dispatch Confirmation. We will not be obliged to supply any other Products which may have been part of your order until the dispatch of such Products has been confirmed in a separate Dispatch Confirmation.
4.5. We are entitled to refuse any order made by you for any reason.
4.6. When making a request you undertake that all details you provide to us requesting goods or services are true and accurate, that you are an authorised user of the credit or debit card used to make your request and that there are sufficient funds to cover the cost of the goods and services. It is your responsibility to inform us of any changes to these details as soon as possible.
- CONSUMER RIGHTS
If you are contracting as a consumer, you may cancel the Contract at any time within 14 days, beginning on the day after you have paid for your Product. In this case, you will receive a full refund of the price paid for the products but will need to pay for the delivery cost, in accordance with our Returns Policy. You will not be refunded the delivery cost if you are returning an item to us, and this is at your own cost. Refunds are made within 14 days after the date on which we receive the goods back in saleable condition, and are by the same method as original payment. We may deduct the amount of any diminution in value if a product is returned damaged or used (unless it is faulty). Please keep all tags and labels attached to the Product and return it in perfect condition to be eligible for a refund.
- AVAILABILITY AND DELIVERY
Your order will be fulfilled by the delivery date set out in the Dispatch Confirmation or, if no delivery date is specified, then within 14 days of the date of the Dispatch Confirmation, unless there are exceptional circumstances. Please note delivery days quoted are working days only and are approximate as advised by our service partners. We are unable to guarantee delivery within these times on behalf of our couriers/service partners and these are subject to change during busy periods, due to times of year and volume of parcels sent.
- PRICE AND PAYMENT
7.1. The price payable for the products shall be as shown on the Website. Prices advertised on the Website include any applicable UK VAT but excludes delivery charges. Delivery charges are shown separately when ordering and must also be paid in advance.

7.4. Our site contains a number of Products and it is always possible that, despite our best efforts, some of the Products listed on our site may be incorrectly priced. We will normally verify prices as part of our dispatch procedures so that, where a Product's correct price is less than our stated price, we will charge the lower amount when dispatching the Product to you. If a Product’s correct price is higher than the price stated on our site, we will normally, at our discretion, either contact you for instructions before dispatching the Product, or reject your order and notify you of such rejection.
7.5. We are under no obligation to provide the Product to you at the incorrect (lower) price, even after we have sent you a Dispatch Confirmation, if the pricing error is obvious and unmistakable and could have reasonably been recognised by you as a miss-pricing.
7.6. Payment for all Products must be by credit or debit card. We accept payment with VISA, VISA DEBIT, MASTERCARD and MAESTRO.
7.7 The cost of foreign products and services may fluctuate. All prices advertised are subject to such changes.
