Jurisdiction and applicable law:
No contract for the sale of any order will subsist until we have received full payment from you and that we have sent you a confirmation email and that the goods have been shipped to the address specified. You are responsible for ensuring all details you supply are fully accurate and we are not liable for any inaccurate information provided. If there are any changes, you must notify us immediately. If the order has already been dispatched, we can not take any responsibility for any incorrect information which you have provided.
When you submit an order, you are confirming that all details are correct and that you will pay for the order. You must undertake that the credit or debit card you are using is your own and that there are sufficient funds to cover the cost of all the goods ordered. Please note we can not accept payment details via email as this is not secure. Payment must be made by the secure payment methods we have made available to you. We cannot accept registration or payments from anyone under the age of 18. Payment must be received in full before items are dispatched. Failure to do so would deem the transaction void. All items include any applicable sales taxes. Payment must be made in pound sterling. Some items may be out of stock in which case you will be notified as soon as this becomes apparent and you will be given the choice for a full refund for that item or you may choose to wait until it becomes available (if applicable). Current stock statuses are as up to date as we believe. However, stock inaccuracies can occur from time to time.
