1.2 We must receive payment of the whole of the price for the goods and delivery (where applicable) before your order can be accepted. Payment of the price for the goods represents an offer on your part to purchase the goods, which will be accepted by us only when the goods are despatched. Only at this point is a legally binding contract created between us.
2.1 When selecting a product advertised for sale on our website, you may place the order by following the on-screen prompts, after clicking on the item you wish to order. You will have an opportunity to check and correct any errors up until the point you place your order by clicking the ‘Pay with Card’ or ‘Pay with PayPal’ Button on the checkout page. Thereafter you will have the right to cancel as laid out in the Consumer Rights Directive June 2014, details of which are set out on the Right to Cancel page of our website.

We may, at our discretion, process any part of the order which is available. Where goods are out of stock, we will refund you in full the price you have paid for such goods as soon as possible, and in any event within 14 days.

5.2 Occasionally, an error may occur and goods may be incorrectly priced in which case we will not be obliged to supply the goods at the incorrect price or at all. We will, at our discretion either cancel your order and refund the price you have paid or use every reasonable endeavour to contact you and ask if you wish to continue with the order at the correct price. If we are unable to contact you or you do not wish to continue with the order at the correct price, we will cancel your order and refund the price you have paid.
5.3 We have taken every care in the preparation of the content of this website to ensure that all goods have been described accurately. However, orders will only be processed if there are no material errors in the description of the goods. Any weights, dimensions and capacities given about the goods are approximate only and can be subject to change.
5.4 From time to time we advertise goods at promotional prices, where a promotion/voucher code is given the code must be quoted at checkout. You must check this has been correctly processed at the checkout before confirming your order, otherwise you may be charged the full price.

5.6 Each transaction is verified through a fraud screening and authorisation process provided by our secure gateway and when required we may ask for identification from you to verify yourself as the customer. This is an action recommended by the payment gateway during the fraud screening. The ID we require is used to verify you at the address. We may also perform additional checks on orders more than £200 to verify the billing address matches bank records for the transaction to be completed.
If the issuer of the card refuses to authorise payment will not accept your order or purchase, we will not be obliged to inform you of the reason for refusal and will not be liable for the item not being delivered or provided to you. Once your payment has declined, please do not enter your card details again or re-process your order on the website; you will in this instance need to contact your bank for further information and to resolve.
