After you place an order for Products, we will confirm that your order has been accepted by sending an email to the email address you provide on your registration form (Acceptance Email). The Acceptance Email brings into existence a legally binding agreement between us.
Whilst every effort is made to ensure that any amendments requested to orders after they have been placed are carried out, we cannot guarantee this.
PRICING AND AVAILABILITY
We take great care to ensure that prices are accurate, although all prices are subject to change prior to the agreement between us being formed.
It is always possible that, despite our reasonable efforts, some of the Products on our site may be incorrectly priced. If we discover an error in the price of the Products you have ordered we will inform you of this error and we will give you the option of continuing to purchase the Product at the correct price or cancelling your order. We will not process your order until we have your instructions. If we are unable to contact you using the contact details you provided during the order process, we will treat the order as cancelled and notify you in writing. If you are shopping using the list 'My Account', the prices on your previous order may no longer be valid. However, the correct prices will be applied when you select an item from the shopping list and it is added to your current basket.
All prices include VAT where appropriate.
The images of the Products and packaging on our site are for illustrative purposes only.

OTHER IMPORTANT TERMS

This contract is between you and us. No other person shall have any rights to enforce any of its terms, whether under the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties Act) 1999 or otherwise.
Each of the paragraphs of these Sale Terms operates separately. If any court or relevant authority decides that any of them are unlawful or unenforceable, the remaining paragraphs will remain in full force and effect.
If we fail to insist that you perform any of your obligations under these Sale Terms, or if we do not enforce our rights against you, or if we delay in doing so, that will not mean that we have waived our rights against you and will not mean that you do not have to comply with those obligations. If we do waive a default by you, we will only do so in writing, and that will not mean that we will automatically waive any later default by you.
These Sale Terms are governed by English law. This means the purchase of Products through our site and any dispute or claim arising out of or in connection with it will be governed by English law.
