If, during the order process, you provide Us with incorrect or incomplete information, please contact Us as soon as possible.

If you do not give us the accurate or complete information within a reasonable time of Our request, We will cancel your Order and treat the Contract as being at an end. If We incur any costs as a result of your incorrect or incomplete information, We may pass those costs on to you.
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 acceptance is indicated by Us sending you an Order Confirmation by email. Only once We have sent you an Order Confirmation will there be a legally binding Contract between Us and you.
Order Confirmations shall contain the following information:
- Your Order Number;
- 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;
We will also email you a copy of the Order Confirmation rather than include it in paper form with your Goods.
In the unlikely event that We do not accept or cannot fulfil your Order for any reason, We will explain why in writing or by email. No payment will 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 1 week.
Any refunds due will be made using the same payment method that you used when ordering the Goods.
Payment for Goods and related delivery charges must always be made in advance and you will be prompted to pay during the order process.
