- How the contract is formed between you and us
2.1 You may place an order to purchase a Product advertised for sale on the Site by following the onscreen prompts after clicking on the item you are interested in. You will have an opportunity to check and correct any input errors in your order up until the point at which you submit your order by clicking the “Make Payment” button on the “Payment Details” page.
2.2 After placing an order, you will receive an email (the “Order Confirmation”) from us acknowledging that we have received your order and giving an order number and a summary of your order. Please note that this does not mean that your order has been accepted. You must proceed to payment directly into our bank account. Please use your Order ID as the payment reference. Your order won’t be shipped until the funds have cleared in our account. All orders are subject to acceptance by us, and we will confirm such acceptance to you by sending you an email that confirms that the Product has been dispatched (the “Dispatch Confirmation”). The contract between us will only be formed when we send you the Dispatch Confirmation.
2.3 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.
2.4 We may choose not to accept your order for any reason and we will not be liable to you or to anyone else in those circumstances.
2.5 We may be unable to process your order if:
The Product you ordered is out of stock or discontinued;
There is a problem with the payment method you’ve chosen for payments.
3.1 We will deliver the Products to you in accordance with our chosen delivery option.
3.2 We will usually deliver all Products comprised in your order in one delivery. We will deliver directly to the delivery address specified in your order. Please see Delivery Information for details of where we deliver and the available delivery options. We cannot deliver items within the same order to multiple addresses. Where possible deliveries will be made to your door. We are not responsible for any additional carrying or positioning of Products ordered.

4.1 Once delivered, the Products ordered will become your responsibility and, except in relation to Products that are damaged or faulty when delivered or have been incorrectly delivered, we will not accept any liability for their loss, damage or destruction after they have been delivered.
4.2 Ownership of the Products will only pass to you on: delivery of the Products to you; or us receiving full payment of all sums due in respect of the Products, (including delivery charges if exist) whichever is the later.
- Price and Payment
5.1 The price of any Products will be as quoted on our Site from time to time, except in cases of obvious error.
5.2 These prices include VAT but and delivery charges.
5.3 Prices are liable to change at any time, but changes will not affect orders in respect of which we have already sent you a Dispatch Confirmation.
5.4 We cannot complete your order until you have paid for it in full. Payment can be made by bank transfer.
5.6 Our Site contains a large 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 rectify any such errors as soon as possible once we become aware of them. If a Product’s correct price is different from 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.

6.1 You may cancel your order (or any part of it) at any stage before the Products are dispatched to you, and up to 28 days afterwards. Please refer to your (“Dispatch Confirmation”) email for the Returns Procedure for online orders or by contacting our Customer Services team at [email protected]
6.2 Where you decide to cancel an order after we have dispatched the Products, you will be under a duty to return them to us, at your own risk. All such Products should be returned within 28 days after the Products have been delivered to you. Until such time as they are returned, you must retain possession of the Products and take reasonable care of them. You should return the Products to us unused and in the same condition in which you received them together with the original Product packaging, by one of the means set out in our Returns Procedure.
6.3 After you cancel your order and return the Products, you must provide us a bank account number so we can refund you by bank transfer in full. We will notify you of your refund via email within a reasonable period of time. We will usually refund any money received from you using the same method originally used by you to pay for your purchase except Paypal returns in store. Refunds for Products purchased as gifts can only be given to the bank account of the person who placed the order. We will usually process the refund due to you as soon as possible and, in any case, within 30 days of receiving the order back from you.
6.4 If any Product you purchase is damaged, faulty or incorrect, when delivered to you, we may offer an exchange or refund as appropriate, in accordance with your legal rights.
