  3.  Our Contract 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, we will inform you of this by email and will not charge you for the product or will provide a refund if we have already charged you. This might be because:

  • the product is out of stock,
  • we have unexpected limits on our resources which we could not reasonably plan
  • we have identified an error in the price or description of the product
  • we are unable to meet a delivery deadline you have 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 tell us the order number whenever you contact us about your order.

3.5 User Accounts

You can set up an account with us so that you can purchase from our website without having to input your details every time. You do not need to set up an account to purchase products from us and can check out an order as a guest.
