2. Purpose of these Terms
NOTE: your attention is drawn to clauses 3 and 8 in particular.
2.2 Before submitting your order for Products to us, you will be asked if you agree to these Terms. If you do agree to them, please click on the ’I accept’ button. Please only click ‘I accept’ if you are happy to be bound by these terms, are at least 16 years of age and resident in the United Kingdom or one of our specified European delivery destinations, which are: Germany, France, Ireland, Belgium, Denmark, Italy, Luxembourg, Netherlands and Spain (‘European Shipping Destinations’)
2.3 If you find yourself unable to agree to these Terms, then you must not use our ordering service and we ask that you cancel the details of your order by removing all the items you have selected from the shopping basket and clicking the refresh button at the bottom of the order form before returning to our home page.
2.4 We may revise these Terms from time to time to reflect changes in how we accept payment from you, laws and regulatory requirements or technological facilities we use. Every time you order Product(s) from us, the Terms in force at that time will apply to the contract between you and us for those Product(s). Please check the latest version of these Terms by coming back to this page whenever you place an order to ensure you understand the Terms which will apply at that time
2.5 At some points in these Terms we use the words ‘working days’. This means Monday to Friday, excluding Saturdays, Sundays and designated public holidays in England and Wales.
3. Orders and Formation of Contract
3.1 Set out below is a useful summary of the steps which you must follow in order to conclude a legally binding contract with us:
Step 1: After you have agreed to these Terms by clicking on the "I accept" button, you will be asked to enter your payment card details at the appropriate stage. The next page to appear on your screen will be our standard order form which contains information on the total price of your chosen Product(s) together with a description of them and an explanation of any promotional offers which may apply.
Step 2: You can, and it is your responsibility to, check and amend any errors at each page of the order process before submitting your order to us. If you change your mind and do not wish to submit an order to us, you should remove the item(s) you have ordered and click the refresh button then return to our home page. Once your order has been submitted you will not be able to amend errors, though you may cancel your order and return any Products not required in accordance with your right to cancel, or our returns policy which is explained below. The details about your recent orders can be found in your customer login.
Step 3: Once you are satisfied the information you have provided is correct, you can submit an order to us by clicking on the "SUBMIT" button which appears at the end of the form. There are some situations where we cannot accept an order, and in the order form, you will be asked to identify if any of these are applicable to you. By clicking on ’Submit’ you will confirm that none of these situations applies to you and that your responses are not misleading or inaccurate, and accordingly you acknowledge that we are reliant upon you to complete the order form accurately. For legal purposes, by completing and submitting the electronic order form you are making an offer to purchase Products which, if accepted by us, will result in a binding contract.
Step 4: We will send you an email simply confirming that your order has been received. However, this does not mean your order has been accepted, as this will only happen when we send you a further email confirming despatch and delivery details (‘Dispatch E-Mail’). There will only be a legally binding contract between us once we have sent the Despatch E-Mail to you. Please note that we may debit your payment card before a binding contract has been concluded, but you will be entitled to a full refund if that contract is not made for any reason.
Step 5: Once we are in a position to fulfil your order we shall send the Despatch E-Mail to you, at which point the contract between you and us for purchasing the Product(s) is legally formed. If we cannot fulfil your order for any reason in relation to some or all of the Product(s) you ordered, we will not send a Despatch E-Mail to you. However, we will inform you that your order cannot be fulfilled in relation to those Product(s) and a refund of any money you have paid in relation to those Product(s) will be made to your payment card.
3.2 Please note that while we will send emails to you as appropriate under this clause, as with all communication over the internet we cannot guarantee that the notification we send will be received by you, nor that, if it is received by you, it will be legible and uncorrupted.
4. Product Description and Pricing
4.1 Prices quoted for Products on the Website are stated in UK Sterling, are inclusive of VAT at the current standard rate and exclusive of our delivery charges. Details of our delivery charges are noted below, and can also be found on our Shipping Information page. You will be notified of all relevant delivery charges when or shortly after you place your order in any event.
4.2 The price, availability and specification of the goods as stated on the Website are subject to change without notice, but changes will not affect any order we have accepted with a Despatch E-Mail.
4.3 Our Website contains a large number of Products and it is always possible that some of the Products on our Website may be incorrectly priced. We will normally check prices as part of our dispatch procedures so that: (a) Where the Product's correct price is less than the price stated on our Website, we will charge the lower amount when dispatching the Products to you. However, if the pricing error is obvious and unmistakeable and could have reasonably been recognised by you as a mispricing, we do not have to provide the Products to you at the incorrect (lower) price; and (b) If the Product's correct price is higher than the price stated on our site, we will contact you as soon as possible to inform you of this error and we will give you the option of continuing to purchase the Product at the correct price or cancelling your order. We will not process your order until we have your instructions. If we are unable to contact you using the contact details you provided during the order process, we will treat the order as cancelled and notify you in writing.
4.4 All photography appearing on the Website are for illustration purposes only and, as such, may vary slightly, particularly colours depending on your screen settings. Whilst it is our intention to keep the Website up to date and error free, product description or pricing errors may occur. If we discover such an error after you have submitted an order to us but before we have sent you a Despatch E-Mail, we will contact you prior to accepting your order with the correct details. You may then either cancel your order and receive a refund or re-confirm it based on the correct information. If we are unable to contact you, we will treat your order as cancelled.
4.5 Details of any promotional offers and discounts, their duration and steps or evidence required to claim them will be detailed on the Website. It is your responsibility to claim any discounts which may be available and apply to you. Where you have redeemed a promotional code or any other offer against your order, acceptance of the order is subject to us verifying from the information provided that you comply with all the eligibility criteria and/or terms of the offer. We reserve the right to withdraw or vary the availability of any discounts or promotional offers. Any changes will not affect any order which we have confirmed with a Despatch E-Mail.
5. Payment and Ownership
5.1 Ownership of the Product(s) ordered remains with us until such time as payment in cleared funds has been received from you for all the Product(s) ordered and all associated delivery charges. You will own the Product(s) once we have received payment in full for them and all associated delivery charges, and you have received them.
5.2 Payments are accepted from the credit and debit cards listed on the Website, or from a valid PayPal account you are authorised to use.
5.3 We may debit your payment card before a binding contract has been concluded i.e. before the Despatch E-Mail is sent to you. Such action will under no circumstances constitute acceptance of your offer on our part and, in the event that we ultimately are unable to accept or fulfil your order, a full refund will be made to your payment card.
5.4 All payments will be encrypted to ensure that orders you place through the Website are as secure as possible.

8. Returns Policy
8.1 We want you to be completely satisfied with your new purchase from us. You should notify us if you believe the Product(s) delivered to you suffer from any fault or if they do not match the specification on the Website at the time you ordered them. Please try to let us know within 14 days from the date of delivery/collection or (where the issue was not apparent on reasonable inspection at that time) as soon as possible after you notice the problem. You can get in touch with us to report a defect by sending an email, writing to us or calling us using the contact details shown at the top of these Terms.

Alternatively you can return the goods via your own postage at your own initial expense.
