2.1 These terms and conditions apply:2.1.1. so far as the context allows, to you as a visitor to Our Website; and 2.1.2. in any event to you as a buyer or prospective buyer of our Goods.
2.2 Goods advertised may not be available.
2.3 We shall accept your order by e-mail confirmation. Our message will also confirm details of your purchase. Only when we email you with despatch details will we be deemed to have accepted your order and formed a contract with you. It is possible that the price may have increased from that posted on Our Website.
2.4 You confirm that you are at least 18 years old, or if in the country where you are ordering or to where you want the Goods shipped there is a higher age required to enter into a binding contract or buy the Goods concerned, that you are at least that higher age.
2.5 We may change these terms from time to time. The terms that apply to you are those posted here on Our Website on the day you order Goods.
2.6 All descriptions, weights and sizes of Goods are those of the original manufacturers and you may not rely on their accuracy. Accordingly, any such description shall not form part of this Agreement.
2.7 If we do not have the Goods you order in stock, we will offer you alternatives before we despatch your order. If this happens you may:
2.7.1. accept the alternatives we offer;
2.7.2. cancel your order;
2.7.3. leave the order valid, but tell us to omit the out-of-stock item.
2.8 If we owe you money (for this or any other reason), we will credit your credit or debit card as soon as reasonably practicable but in any event no later than 30 days from the date of your order.
3. Accessing Our Website
3.1 Access to Our Website is permitted on a temporary basis, and we reserve the right to withdraw or amend the service we provide on Our Website without notice. We will not be liable if for any reason Our Website is unavailable at any time for any period.
From time to time, we may restrict access to some parts of Our Website, or our entire site, to users who have registered with us.
3.2 Commentary and other materials posted on Our Website are not intended to amount to advice on which reliance should be placed. We therefore disclaim all liability and responsibility arising from any reliance placed on such materials.
3.3 We aim to update Our Website regularly, and may change the content at any time. If the need arises, we may suspend access to Our Website, or close it indefinitely. Any of the material on Our Website may be out of date at any given time, and we are under no obligation to update such material.
3.4 We will not be liable for any loss or damage caused by a distributed denial- of- service attack, viruses or other technologically harmful material that may infect your computer equipment, computer programs, data or other proprietary material due to your use of Our Website or to your downloading of any material posted on it, or on any website linked to it.
4. Price and Payment
4.1 You must pay us the full price of your order before we will send any part of it. Ownership of Goods will pass to you on delivery but only if we have received payment in full.

4.6 Prices and delivery charges are liable to change at any time but changes will not affect orders in respect of which we have already sent you a despatch confirmation.
4.7 Our Website contains a large number of Goods and, despite our best efforts, some of the Goods listed on Our Website may be incorrectly priced. We will normally verify prices as part of our despatch procedures so that where the correct price is less than our stated price, we will charge the lower amount when despatching the Goods to you. If the correct price is higher than the price stated on Our Website, we will normally, at our discretion, either contact you for instructions before despatching the Goods, or reject your order and notify you that we are rejecting it.
4.8 If the pricing error is obvious and unmistakeable and could have been reasonably recognised by you as an error, we do not have to provide the Goods to you at the incorrect (lower) price.
5. Information you give us
5.1 You agree that you have provided, and will continue to provide accurate, up to date, and complete information about yourself. We need this information to provide you with the Goods.
5.2 We will use our reasonable endeavours to respond to any point of dissatisfaction by you, provided you contact us within three months of purchase.
6.1 Any delivery dates given are estimates only and are not binding on us. Deliveries will be made by the Carrier to the address stipulated in your order. You must ensure that someone is present to accept delivery. We may make an extra charge if there is no one present to accept delivery and Goods have to be re- delivered.
6.2 If we are not able to deliver your Goods within 30 days of the date of your order, we shall notify you by email to arrange another date for delivery.
6.3 We may deliver the Goods in installments if the Goods are not available at the same time for delivery.

Please also note that you must comply with all applicable laws and regulations of the country for which the Goods are destined. We will not be liable for any breach by you of any such laws.
