Terms of Sale
NOTHING IN THESE TERMS OF SALE AFFECTS YOUR STATUTORY RIGHTS.
1. Supply of Products through this Site
1.1 The Site is only intended for use by people resident in the United Kingdom. We do not accept orders from individuals outside this country.
1.2 This Site is established to sell Products to end-use customers only. We reserve the right to refuse access to this Site and to cancel any Order for any reason, including Orders which we consider to be fraudulent and Orders from customers who we reasonably believe intend to re-sell and/or commercially export the Product(s).

If a delivery charge applies to your Order you will be notified both during the transactional element of the ordering process and again in the acknowledgement of Order email we send to you. Prices and delivery charges displayed are valid and effective only in the United Kingdom. Prices, offers and Products are subject to availability and may change at any time prior to our dispatching your Order and taking payment from you.
1.5 The placing of a Product on this Site is an invitation to accept offers for Products and is not an offer to sell at the listed price nor is it binding on us. We are under no obligation to accept your Order.
1.6 Whilst we try to ensure that all prices on the Site are accurate, errors may sometimes occur. In the event that a Product you have ordered is listed at an incorrect price due to a typographical error, we will notify you of the correct price by e-mail before despatching your Order, asking you to confirm you still wish to proceed with your Order at the new, correct price. Once we have received your confirmation we will then despatch your Order. If you do not confirm that you wish to proceed with the Order within 7 days of the date of our price correction email, we will consider this as a withdrawal of your Order and we will delete your payment details from our system.
1.7 Whilst we take all reasonable care to ensure the accuracy and completeness of the information on this Site and that all details, images and descriptions of Products are correct at the time that the information is first put onto this Site, the Site is provided on an "as is" basis and we give no warranty and make no representation regarding the accuracy or completeness of the content of this Site. Unfortunately we cannot guarantee the accuracy of images portrayed on this Site and colours of actual Products may differ from those in images and this is a product of our photographic process. Further, no warranty is given that the Site shall be available on an uninterrupted basis, and no liability can be accepted in respect of losses or damages arising out of such unavailability.

2.1.1 You must add the Product you wish to purchase to your shopping cart and then proceed to the Checkout.

2.1.3 You will then be asked to input your shipping and payment details.
2.1.4 Once you have completed compiling your Order you will be asked to confirm that it is correct, and that you agree to these Terms of Sale.
