We will contact you to confirm that you are happy to proceed with the order and agree to wait for the product(s). If you are happy to proceed, payment will be taken for out of stock products to secure stock.
There will be no contract of any kind between you and us until payment for your goods is authorised by your bank or credit card issuer. At any point up until then, we may decline to supply the goods to you without giving any reason. At the moment that payment for the goods is authorised (and not before) a contract will be made between you and us ("Contract"). Authority for payment must be given at the time of the order. Payment for your order will be taken once stock availability has been confirmed. If for any reason the goods cannot be supplied then payment will be refunded in full within 30 days from cancellation of the sale in compliance with distance selling legislation.
Delivery will be made to the UK address specified by you. We will make reasonable endeavours to dispatch orders received before 2pm on the same day: orders received after 2pm on the following day; and orders received after 2pm on Friday to Sunday inclusive (or on public holidays) on the next working day. Customers may also select the day of delivery upto 3 months in advance. All orders will be delivered by Royal Mail (or other commercial carrier at our discretion).

To obtain a refund you must return the product(s) to us in the same condition in which you received them. We will examine the returned product(s) and will notify you of your refund via e-mail within a reasonable period of time. We will usually process the refund due to you as soon as possible and, in any case, within 30 days of the day we confirmed to you via e-mail that you were entitled to a refund for the defective product.

We will not be liable or responsible for any failure to perform, or delay in performance of, any of our obligations under a Contract that is caused by events outside our reasonable control ("Force Majeure Event"). Our performance under any Contract is deemed to be suspended for the period that the Force Majeure Event continues, and we will have an extension of time for performance for the duration of that period. We will use our reasonable endeavours to bring the Force Majeure Event to a close or to find a solution by which our obligations under the Contract may be performed despite the Force Majeure Event.
No failure or delay by us to exercise any right or remedy provided under a Contract or by law shall constitute a waiver of that or any other right or remedy, nor shall it preclude or restrict the further exercise of that or any other right or remedy. No single or partial exercise of such right or remedy shall preclude or restrict the further exercise of that or any other right or remedy.
These Terms and Conditions and any document expressly referred to in them represent the entire agreement between you and us in relation to the subject matter of any Contract and supersede any prior agreement, understanding or arrangement between you and us, whether oral or in writing. You and we both acknowledge that, in entering into any Contract, you and we have not relied on, and shall have no right or remedy in respect of, any statement, representation, assurance or warranty (whether made negligently or innocently) other than as expressly set out in these Terms and Conditions (and any document expressly refered to herein). Nothing in this clause shall limit or exclude any liability for fraud.
These Terms and Conditions shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of England and Wales and any disputes will be decided only by the English courts. If any of these Terms and Conditions are held by any court of competent authority to be unlawful, invalid or unenforceable, in whole or in part, this will not affect the validity of the remaining Terms and Conditions which will continue to be valid and enforceable to the fullest extent permitted by law. Only you and we shall be permitted to enforce these Terms and Conditions.
