3. Our Contact with you
3.1 Offers on our website
Whilst we take care to ensure that our prices and advertising are correct, our goods sell very quickly and we may change the type, availability or price of goods at short notice. All goods on our website are advertised as an “invitation to treat”. This means that it is not a contractual offer and we may change our prices or the products we sell up to the point where we accept your order.
3.2 Accepting your order
Our acceptance of your order will take place when we email you and confirm that your goods are available at the stated price. At this point a contract will come into existence between you and us.
3.3 If we cannot accept your order
If we are unable to accept your order, or part-order, we will inform you of this by email and we will not charge you for the product(s) we cannot provide to you. If payment has already been accepted, we will then provide a full refund for the product(s) that cannot be fulfilled.
The following reasons are examples as to why we may not be able to accept your order, or part-order:
- The product(s) is out of stock.
- We have unexpected limits on our resources which we could not reasonably plan for.
- We have identified an error in the price or description of the product(s).
- We are unable to meet a delivery deadline that was specified.
3.4 Your order number
We will assign a number to your order and tell you what it is when we accept your order. It will help us if you can quote the order number if you decide to contact us about your order.
3.5 User accounts
You can set up an account with us in order to purchase from our website without having to input your details every time you place an order in the future.
