  1. c) Orders

  • Register by providing your real name, phone number, postal/delivery address, e-mail address, payment details and other requested information
  • Possess a valid credit or debit card issued by a bank acceptable to Us.

 

By making an offer to buy a product, you specifically authorise Us to transmit information (including any updated information) or to obtain information about you from third parties from time to time, including but

not limited to your debit or credit card number or credit reports, to authenticate your identity, to validate your credit card, to obtain an initial credit card authorisation and to authorise individual purchase transactions.

We will take all reasonable care, in so far as it is in Our power to do so, to keep the details of your order and payment secure, but in the absence of negligence on Our part, We cannot be held liable for any loss you may suffer if a third party procures unauthorized access to any data you provide when accessing or ordering from the Website.

The technical steps required to create the contract between you and Us are as follows:

You place the order for your products on the Website by pressing the confirm order button at the end of the check-out process. You will be guided through the process of placing an order by a series of simple instructions on the Website. Before submitting your Order, you will be given the opportunity to review and amend it. Please ensure that you check your Order carefully before submitting it. Your Order constitutes a contractual offer. Our acceptance of that offer is indicated by Us sending you an Order Confirmation by email. Once we have sent you an Order Confirmation will there be a legally binding Contract between Us and you for the sale of the Goods. Payment for Goods and related delivery charges must always be made in advance. You will be prompted to provide payment details during the ordering process.

Completion of the contract between you and Us will take place on the date of despatch to you of the products ordered unless We have notified you that We do not accept your order. We may not accept your Order because, but not limited to, the Goods are out of stock, because of unexpected limits on Our resources that We could not have reasonably planned for, because We have identified a mistake in the description or price of the Goods, or because We are not able to meet a delivery deadline that you have set.

  1. d) Description of products

Each product purchased is sold subject to its product description.

We will take all reasonable care to ensure that all details, descriptions and prices of products appearing on the Website are correct at the time of publishing. Although We aim to keep the Website as up to date as possible, the information including product descriptions appearing on this Website at a particular time may not always reflect the position exactly at the moment you place an order.

Images of Goods are for illustrative purposes only. There may be slight variations in colour between the image of a product and the actual product due to differences in computer or device displays and lighting conditions. All descriptive and forwarding specifications, drawings and particulars of weights and dimensions issued by the Company are approximate only, and are intended only to present a general idea of the goods to which they refer and shall not form any part of any contract.

The right is reserved to change specifications without prior notification or public announcement.

  1. e) Pricing

We make all reasonable efforts to ensure that prices shown on Our Site are correct. We may change prices from time to time. Changes in price will not affect any Order that you have already placed.

All prices are checked before We accept your Order. If We have shown incorrect pricing information, we will inform you of the mistake in writing. If the correct price is lower than that shown when you make your Order, we will simply charge you the lower price. If the correct price is higher than that shown when you make your order, we will give you the option to purchase the Goods at the correct price or to cancel your Order. In this case, We will not proceed with processing your Order until you respond. If you do not respond within 5 working days, we will treat your Order as cancelled and inform you of the cancellation in writing. If We mistakenly accept and process an Order where an obvious and unmistakeable pricing error has been made, which you could have reasonably recognised as a mispricing, we have the right to end the Contract, refund any sums paid, and require you to return the affected Goods to Us.

  1. f) Refusal of transaction

We reserve the right to withdraw any products from this Website at any time and/or remove or edit any materials or content on this Website. We may refuse to process a transaction or order for any reason or refuse service to anyone at any time at Our sole discretion. We will not be liable to you or any third party by reason of Our withdrawing any product from this Website whether or not that product has been sold; removing or editing any materials or content on the Website; refusing to process a transaction or order or unwinding or suspending any transaction or order after processing has begun.

If You need confirmation of lead times and delivery dates You will need to contact us.

We will not be responsible for delays that are outside of our reasonable control. If delivery is delayed for such a reason, we will inform you as soon as possible and will take steps to minimise the impact of the delay. If there is a risk of a substantial delay to delivery, you may contact Us to request termination of the Contract. Subject to confirmation by Us we will be refunded any sums paid for Goods less any additional costs incurred by Us in processing the Goods. We will not accept any liability for consequential loss or damage whatsoever from failure to despatch or despatch to an agreed or advised date.

We will not be responsible for any non-delivered items after this time or failure to advise Us accordingly. Providing the above procedure has been carried out than any missing products will be replaced free of charge. This does not include any consequential costs which may arise out of a delivery problem.

Should the goods be returned to us due to failed delivery attempts, we reserve the right to charge the cost of another attempted delivery.

  1. h) Receipt of Goods

All deliveries must be signed for. Someone must be available to sign for the goods normally between 07.00 am and 20.00 pm. You may be asked to sign electronically. We are unable to offer timed deliveries.

The goods when received should be checked carefully upon arrival for the correct number of parcels, signs of parcel damage and correct content of parcels. If the outside of a package or parcel appears damaged but the contents are not and you are happy to accept the Goods, sign but state ‘Received Damaged’ on the carrier’s receipt. This will enable us to make a claim against the carrier if the Goods are found to be damaged.

UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES SIGN FOR AND ACCEPT THE CONSIGNMENT IF YOU BELIEVE THE GOODS ARE DAMAGED.

If you do this, we will be unable to claim for damage caused by the carrier which may make your claim on Us void. The carrier will return the Goods to us.

If delivery is not refused, and You fail to notify Us accordingly, You the Buyer will not be entitled to reject the Goods and We shall have no liability for such defect or failure, and You will be required to pay the price as if the Goods had been delivered in accordance with the Contract.
