We make all reasonable efforts to ensure that all descriptions and graphical representations of Goods available from Us correspond to the actual Goods. Please note, however, the following:

Images of Goods are for illustrative purposes only. There may be slight variations in colour between the image of a product and the actual product sold due to differences in computer displays and lighting conditions.

Images and/or descriptions of packaging are for illustrative purposes only, the actual packaging of Goods may vary. Please note that this sub-clause does not exclude Our responsibility for mistakes due to negligence on Our part and refers only to minor variations of the correct Goods, not to different Goods altogether.

We neither represent nor warrant that Goods will be available.

We make all reasonable efforts to ensure that all prices shown on Our Site are correct at the time of going online. We reserve the right to change prices and to add, alter, or remove special offers from time to time and as necessary. Changes in price will not affect any order that you have already placed.

All prices are checked by Us when We process your Order. In the unlikely event that We have shown incorrect pricing information, please note the following:

• We will contact you in writing before proceeding with your Order to inform you of the mistake and to ask you how you wish to proceed.

Orders – How Contracts Are Formed

Our Site will guide you through the ordering process. Before submitting your Order to Us you will be given the opportunity to review your Order and amend it. Please ensure that you have checked your Order carefully before submitting it.

No part of Our Site constitutes a contractual offer capable of acceptance. Your Order constitutes a contractual offer that We may, at Our sole discretion, accept. Our acknowledgement of receipt of your Order does not mean that we have accepted it. Our acceptance is indicated by Us sending you a Dispatch Confirmation by email. Only once We have sent you a Dispatch Confirmation will there be a legally binding Contract between Us and you.

Dispatch Confirmations shall contain the following information:

• Confirmation of the Goods ordered including full details of the main characteristics of those Goods;
• Fully itemised pricing for the Goods ordered including, where appropriate, taxes, delivery and other additional charges;
• If We, for any reason, do not accept or cannot fulfil your Order, no payment shall be taken under normal circumstances. If We have taken payment any such sums will be refunded to you as soon as possible and in any event within 14 days.

Delivery, Risk and Ownership

All Goods purchased through Our Site will normally be delivered within the times given in the Delivery Info page.
