Terms of sale
This page tells you the terms and conditions on which we supply to you any goods through the site (Goods) to you. Please read these terms and conditions carefully before ordering any Goods from our site. You should understand that by ordering any of our Goods, you agree to be bound by these terms and conditions.

1.1.1 you are legally capable of entering into binding contracts;
1.1.2 you are at least 18 years old;
1.1.3 you are resident in one of the Serviced Countries; and
1.1.4 you are accessing our site from that country.
2. How the contract is formed between you and us
2.1 After placing an order, you will receive an e-mail from us acknowledging that we have received your order. Please note that this does not mean that your order has been accepted. Your order constitutes an offer to us to buy the Goods. All orders are subject to acceptance by us, and we will confirm such acceptance to you by sending you an e-mail that confirms that the Goods ordered have been dispatched (the Dispatch Confirmation). The contract between us (Contract) will only be formed when we send you the Dispatch Confirmation.
2.2 The Contract will relate only to those Goods whose dispatch we have confirmed in the Dispatch Confirmation. We will not be obliged to supply any other Goods which may have been part of your order until the dispatch of such Goods has been confirmed in a separate Dispatch Confirmation.
3. Consumer rights
3.1 You may cancel a Contract at any time within seven working days, beginning on the day after you received the Goods. In this case, you will receive a full refund of the price paid for the Goods in accordance with our refunds policy set out in Clause 7.
3.2 To cancel a Contract, you must inform us in writing. You must also return the Goods to us immediately, in the same condition in which you received them, and at your own cost and risk. You have a legal obligation to take reasonable care of the Goods while they are in your possession. If you fail to comply with this obligation, we may have a right of action against you for compensation.
3.3 Details of this statutory right, and an explanation of how to exercise it, are provided in the Dispatch Confirmation. This provision does not affect your statutory rights.
4. Availability and delivery
4.1 Your order will be fulfilled by the delivery date set out in the Dispatch Confirmation or, if no delivery date is specified, then within a reasonable time, which shall be a maximum of thirty (30) days from the date of the Dispatch Confirmation, unless there are exceptional circumstances.
5. Risk and title
5.1 The Goods will be at your risk from the time of delivery.
5.2 Ownership of the Goods will only pass to you when we receive full payment of all sums due in respect of the Goods, including delivery charges.
6. Price and payment
6.1 The price of any Goods will be as quoted on our site from time to time, except in cases of obvious error.
6.2 These prices include VAT but exclude delivery costs, which will be added to the total amount due.
6.3 Prices are liable to change at any time, but changes will not affect orders in respect of which we have already sent you a Dispatch Confirmation.
6.4 We are under no obligation to provide the Goods to you at an incorrect (lower) price, even after we have sent you a Dispatch Confirmation, if the pricing error is obvious and unmistakeable and could have reasonably been recognised by you as a mis-pricing.
7. Our refunds policy
7.1 When you return Goods to us:
7.1.1 because you have cancelled the Contract between us within the seven-day cooling-off period see Clause 3 we will process the refund due to you as soon as possible and, in any case, within 30 days of the day you have given notice of your cancellation. In this case, we will refund the price of the Goods in full, excluding the cost of sending the item to you. However, you will be responsible for the cost of returning the item to us; or
7.1.2 for any other reason (for instance, because you have notified us in accordance with Clause 19.2 that you do not agree to any change in these terms and conditions or in any of our policies, or because you claim that the Goods are defective), we will examine the returned Goods. We may at our sole discretion, if the Goods are returned within 36 months of the delivery date, repair or replace the Goods. We will notify you whether we have decided to repair or replace the Goods via e-mail within a reasonable period of time. We will usually return the repaired or replacement Goods 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 replacement or repair of the defective Goods.
7.2 We will usually refund any money received from you using the same method originally used by you to pay for your purchase.
