1. Formation of the Contract
Where you place an order for goods we will send you an email confirming receipt of your order and setting out the details of your order. Your order is an offer to purchase goods and no contract exists between you and us for the sale of any goods until you have received confirmation that your order has been dispatched. Once you receive confirmation that your order has been dispatched, there is a binding legal contract between the parties (the “contract”). Any goods on the same order which are not confirmed as having been dispatched do not form part of that contract.
In using this website and by placing an order, you warrant that you are legally capable of entering into a binding contract and that you are at least 18 years old.
2. Description and price of the goods
The description and price of the goods you order will be as shown on this website at the time you submit your order. You can correct any errors to your order up to the point at which you click on “Complete Order” on the final page of the ordering process.
Sometimes the product specifications of goods may change, in which case we will offer you a reasonable substitute of the same or better quality at the same price. All measurements are approximate but we try to ensure that they are as accurate as possible. On the rare occasion that there is an error, we will advise you about it within a reasonable amount of time.
Every effort is made to ensure that products are accurately represented online in our photography. We accept no liability for variations. This does not affect Your right of cancellation under clause 5 or in respect of returns under clause.
We do not accept liability for any errors and/or omissions contained in our website and reserve the right to change information, prices, specifications and descriptions of listed goods, products and services at any time and without notice.

If you wish to cancel your order we will refund or credit you for any sum that has been paid by you or debited from your credit card or other account for those goods. There may be restrictions in place from time to time in relation to the number and type of goods that can be purchased and the maximum sum of money which may be spent on any one order. If any restrictions apply you will be notified of these before you submit your order.
Every effort is made to ensure that prices shown on this website are accurate at the time you place your order.

To exercise your right of cancellation, you must give written notice to us by hand, post, fax or email, at the address, fax number or email address shown below, giving details of the goods ordered and (where appropriate) their delivery.
If you exercise your right of cancellation after the goods have been delivered, you will be responsible for returning the goods to us at your own cost (unless we delivered the goods in error or if the goods are damaged or defective when delivered). You must take all reasonable care to ensure that the goods are not damaged in the meantime or in transit.

We will usually refund any money received from you using the same method originally used to pay for your purchase. The delivery cost you originally paid is non-refundable unless we have sent you an incorrect item. If we are making a refund, we will usually do so as soon as possible and, in any case, within 30 days of the day on which we received the returned goods in question from you.
If you wish to obtain a refund because of a defect in the goods, you will be refunded in full provided that we are satisfied that the defect is genuine and that we cannot replace the goods within a reasonable period of time. This section 6 does not affect your statutory rights.
