Terms of the contract
If you place an order for goods as a consumer, these terms and conditions apply to your order and to the contract between you and us.
We may change these terms and conditions at any time. Any changes will apply to any orders that you place after the time that we update the terms and conditions on our website. The changes will not apply to any order that you place before we make the changes on our website.
We have taken care to ensure that our website (including the help pages) and these terms and conditions do not contradict each other. However if there are any inconsistencies or contradictions then these terms and conditions shall apply instead of any contradictory or inconsistent part of our website.
When the contract is created
No contract exists between you and us until we notify you that we have accepted your order and delivered the goods.
We are not obliged to accept your order.
We may cancel your order if we cannot supply the goods for any reason.
Description and price of the goods
We make every effort to ensure that prices and descriptions of goods shown on our website are accurate at the time you place your order.
The price of the goods will be as shown on the checkout page of our website when you placed your order. We will charge you this amount.
You must also pay a delivery charge for the goods as indicated on our website at the checkout page.
In the unlikely event that the price shown on the checkout page is wrong, and we discover this before accepting your order, we are not required to sell the goods to you at the price shown. We always try and ensure that the prices of goods shown on our website are accurate, but occasionally genuine errors may occur. If we discover an error in the price of the goods that you have ordered we will let you know as soon as possible and give you the option of reconfirming your order at the correct price or cancelling it. If you cancel your order and you have already paid for the goods, then you will receive a full refund. We may occasionally have to increase the price of goods, even after your order has been accepted by us. If we have to do this, then you may cancel your order.
We will deliver the goods that you order to the delivery address you give when you place your order. Fraud prevention rules of payment providers/gateways/merchants prevent changes to delivery addresses after an order is placed, please ensure that your delivery address is correct, as once your order is submitted this cannot be changed under ANY circumstances.
Once we accept your order, we will endeavour to deliver the goods within the delivery period that applies to the option you have chosen. If our delivery service providers do not come to the delivery address within the applicable delivery period and you have given us the correct full delivery address then you may apply for a refund of the delivery charge.
If there is no one available to accept the delivery when our courier arrives, the couriers may attempt redelivery, try to leave the goods with a neighbouring property or leave the goods at your local Post Office (Royal Mail/Parcelforce). If delivery cannot be completed or you do not collect the item from your local Post Office we may treat the order as cancelled by you. In this case we will refund the price of the goods, but we shall be entitled to keep the amount you paid for delivery.
If you give us an incorrect or incomplete delivery address and as a result we try but are not able to make the delivery, we may treat the order as cancelled by you. In this case we will refund the price of the goods, but we shall be entitled to keep the amount you paid for delivery.
If delivery cannot be completed within the expected time-frame due to circumstances outside the control of both us and our service providers, such as bad weather, natural disaster or severe traffic disruption, our couriers will endeavour to attempt delivery at the first possible opportunity and you may apply for a refund of the difference between the service level paid for and the service level received.
If you intentionally refuse delivery of the goods, under the DSR Regulations we will treat the order as cancelled by you. In this case we will refund the price of the goods, but we shall be entitled to deduct from this amount the costs of failed delivery, including our administration costs and surcharges for return to sender applied by our couriers.
If some of the goods you ordered are not available we may deliver part of your order. We will deliver the rest of the order as soon as possible afterwards.
Your right of cancellation under the Distance Selling Regulations
