Your order constitutes an offer to us to buy Goods. All orders are subject to acceptance by us, and we will confirm such acceptance to you by taking payment and delivering the Goods. The contract between us (“Contract”) will only be formed when we accept your payment or deliver the Goods (whichever is sooner).

The Contract will relate only to those Goods whose dispatch is confirmed in our delivery note. We will not be obliged to supply any other Goods which may have been part of your order.

Prices are liable to change at any time, but changes will not affect any orders which we have already accepted.

Our website contains a large number of Goods and it is always possible that, despite our best efforts, some of the Goods listed on our website may be incorrectly priced. We will normally verify prices as part of our dispatch procedures so that, where the Goods' correct price is less than our stated price, we will charge the lower amount when dispatching the Goods to you. If the Goods’ correct price is higher than the price stated on our website, we will normally, at our discretion, either contact you for instructions before dispatching the Goods, or reject your order and notify you of such rejection.

Payment for all Goods must be by credit or debit card acceptable to us. We accept payment with most major credit and debit cards. Payment must be made at the time of the order or otherwise in accordance with such credit terms as we have expressly agreed with you. Where payment is made at the time of the order, we will not actually charge your credit or debit card until we despatch your order.
