Your use of our websites and any service contained within constitutes acceptance of these Terms & Conditions.
** Please ensure your browser allows cookies for our web site and allows pop ups/redirect to Google Checkout , PayPal and Sagepay otherwise the contents of your basket cannot be transferred for payment. If you have problems using our web site please contact us by email or by telephone and we will try to assist.
2. Customer Information
2.1 You should always check that the contact information you provide is correct before creating a customer account or proceeding to payment.
2.2 You are responsible for maintaining your own username and password if required to access your customer account. You should ensure that you store your username and password securely and that the details required to access your customer account are not provided to another party.
2.3 As a customer you are responsible for your customer account and actions taken within it. If you are aware or suspect that your customer account username and password or other details have become known to a third party, you should inform us or if applicable Google Checkout, PayPal or Sagepay immediately. We will never ask you to reveal your password to us.
4. Product Pricing and Title
4.1 We make every effort to ensure that the pricing displayed on our website is correct. However, if an error in the pricing of a product is found we reserve the right to either cancel your order or contact you to arrange payment of any extra sum due or refund any over-payment made by you (as applicable). The processing of an order can be cancelled or corrected by us at any time up to the shipment of that order and any related items. We reserve the right to alter all product pricing without notice.
4.2 Title in any products ordered from us does not pass to you, the purchaser until we have received and processed a valid payment, and that payment has been made into our own bank account.
5. Your Order
5.1 When you place an order you will automatically receive a confirmation email to confirm your order. Your order constitutes an offer made to us to purchase the goods specified in the order.
5.2 Your offer is only accepted by us once we have confirmed the dispatch of your order. We endeavour to ensure our current stock position is correctly displayed on our website but occasionally during pre-delivery inspection we may discover missing or damaged stock in which case we will inform you of this and if we are unable to fulfil your order we will automatically cancel it and refund any payment already taken.
5.3 Product items not included within the dispatch confirmation are not included in the order and contract between you and us.
5.4 We reserve the right to delay or refuse or cancel orders where a transaction contains incomplete details or details that cannot be verified or where fraud is suspected.
5.5 If we are unable to reasonably ascertain these details or resolve these issues a full refund will be made against the card used at the time of purchase. No other form of refund or credit will be offered nor will a refund be made to any third party card or account.
6.1 All orders received by us are shipped subject to availability. We can only ship products for free to Mainland UK addresses. Regrettably due to courier charges, import/export duties, etc, we are unable to ship goods for free to non UK addresses or to The Isle of Man, Isles of Scilly, Channel Islands, Scottish Islands, Northern Ireland, Eire, etc. Products are normally delivered within 2 working days of placement of the order and confirmation of payment being received by us but may take longer at peak periods. Our aim is to despatch all orders received before 2pm on a normal working day on that same working day and goods are normally delivered on the following working day but this time scale cannot be guaranteed. Delivery to mainland UK addresses as stated above is currently provided by us free of charge.
6.2 We reserve the right to ship products at a later date (up to 28 days after purchase) where the product ordered is not in stock at the time of purchase. In this situation you will be contacted and offered a full refund instead of delivery of the product.
6.3 We cannot be held responsible for disruption to shipping caused by industrial disputes or action outside our direct control. If such disruption occurs you will be offered delivery via an alternative delivery method or or if we are unable to deliver we will offer a full refund.
