All other terms and conditions, whether express or implied by statute or otherwise, are excluded to the fullest extent permitted by law.
Nothing in these terms and conditions shall affect the statutory rights of any consumer.
When confirmation of order is received, this is to indicate that we have received your order. It does not indicate that a contract exists between us. We will indicate acceptance of your order, and hence a contract between us, when we send you an invoice. We have included this term to protect us in the case that a mistake has been made in pricing, we have inadvertently under-priced goods, or we are no longer able to supply a particular product for some reason. In the case of a change of price, we will always contact you first to ensure that the price is acceptable.
All orders for goods shall be deemed to be an offer by you to purchase goods pursuant to these terms and conditions.
You shall be responsible for ensuring the accuracy of the details provided on the order.
No order submitted by you otherwise than by personal attendance at our place of business shall be deemed to be accepted by us unless it is accompanied by details of a valid address within the United Kingdom for delivery of the ordered goods and by details of a valid address for correspondence.
No order submitted by you via our site shall be deemed to be accepted by us unless it is accompanied by a valid and subsisting e-mail address by means of which we may communicate with you.
No order submitted by you shall be deemed to be accepted by us until we confirm acceptance of such order by e-mail, letter or telephone.
We are entitled to refuse any order placed by you and will not be required to provide an explanation for such refusal.
You may cancel a contract with us for supply of goods by giving us written notice that reaches us at any time prior to the despatch date of the goods.
If a contract constitutes a distance contract (that is to say, a contract formed when your are not physically present with us at the moment of the contracts formation, including, without limitation, contracts entered into via our site), you shall be entitled to cancel that contract by giving us written notice within seven days of the day following the day on which you receive the goods.
If you cancel a contract under the foregoing condition following delivery of the goods, you agree to return to us the goods and their original packaging at your expense.
If you cancel a contract we shall refund all sums paid by you to us thereunder less a reasonable sum for collection of the goods if you have failed to return them at your own expense.
Goods supplied in fulfilment of your order may differ slightly from the images shown on the site.
We reserve the right to substitute products of a similar description and standard if the requested goods are not available but will use reasonable endeavours to match your order exactly. In the unlikely event of you receiving a substituted product you shall be entitled to return the goods for a full refund within 10 working days from the date of delivery, should the substituted product not be acceptable to you.
The price of the goods will be the price quoted on the site at the date the order is received and the cost of delivery in the United Kingdom unless specified otherwise.
If the total price of the goods ordered is equal to or greater than £100 , we will make no charge for delivery. In all other cases we may make a charge of the amount indicated in the order confirmation process for delivery of the goods.
We reserve the right by giving notice to you at any time before delivery to increase the price of goods to reflect any increase in the cost to us which is due to any factor beyond our control (such as, without limitation, any foreign exchange fluctuation, significant increase in the costs of labour, materials or other costs of manufacture).
In the unlikely event of there being such an increase in the price of the goods you shall be entitled to cancel the order at any time before delivery and to receive a refund in full of any payment you have made for such goods.
When we supply any goods to you under these terms and conditions, payment will be charged to the account detailed by you on the order form.
By placing an order, you consent to payment being charged to such account as is detailed on the order form.
Title to the goods will pass to you on payment in full of the price of the goods.
We will issue you with a receipt by letter or to your e-mail address if appropriate once the goods have been despatched.
The goods will be delivered to you at the address provided by you on the order form.
The risk in the goods shall pass to you upon such delivery taking place.
We shall endeavour to despatch the goods to you within seven days of acceptance of your order or within such other period for performance of the contract as may have been agreed between us. However, any dates quoted for delivery of the goods are approximate only and we shall not be liable for any delay in delivery of the goods however caused. If we are unable to deliver your goods by the date quoted for delivery you shall be entitled to cancel the order at any time before delivery takes place.
You should note that we are only able to deliver to locations within the United Kingdom at present.
We shall not be liable to you for short delivery of the goods however caused but will provide you with the outstanding goods as soon as is reasonably practical.
