The technical steps required to create the contract between you and us are as follows:

You place the order on the Website for the Products you wish to obtain by pressing the confirm order button at the end of the process. You will be guided through the process of placing an order by a series of simple instructions on the Website. The submission of an order is your offer to buy the Products. You will have the opportunity to check and amend any errors before submitting your order to us.

We will send to you a timed and dated acknowledgement email detailing the Products you have ordered. Please note this is not an order confirmation or order acceptance from us.

Unless we notify you that we cannot accept your order, our acceptance of your order to us will take place when we confirm to you the availability of the Products and we have received payment in full from you. At this point a contract will be formed between us and we will be under a legal obligation to supply the Products to you.

As your Products will be dispatched from our third party warehouse from our warehouse we will send you a dispatch confirmation email.

Non-acceptance of an order may be as a result of one or more of the following:

a. The Products you ordered being either no longer available or not expected in stock for over 30 days. In this case please choose an alternative item or try again in a few weeks
b. Our inability to obtain authorisation for your payment
c. The identification of a pricing or product description error
d. Your failure to meet the eligibility to order criteria set out in this Contract.
If an order is not accepted you will be notified by email. If the Products you have chosen are not available or not expected to be in stock for over 30 days, we will not substitute it with other Products, but recommend instead that you choose an alternative or try again in a few weeks.

All prices on this Website are in £Sterling and may change at any time. All prices are shown inclusive of VAT at the current rate, where relevant. The price you will pay is the price shown at the time of your order, unless we inform you of a pricing error. In the case of a pricing error your contract will be cancelled and we will not process your order, but will endeavour to inform you as soon as we can. Offers or discounts may be withdrawn by us at any time.

6. Variation

We may revise these terms and conditions if there are any changes to how we may accept payment from you or any changes to relevant laws and regulatory requirements.
