Effects of cancellation

4. Minor variations in goods

4.1 We will take reasonable care to ensure that representations and descriptions of goods appearing on our website are correct. We have made reasonable efforts to display as accurately as possible the appearance / colour / texture / finish of our goods. However, you acknowledge and accept that there may be minor differences between the actual goods and the way that they appear on our website. For example, the colour tone may differ. 

4.2 The labelling or packaging of the goods you receive may differ from the images of these which you see on our site.


5. Your order 

5.1 Your order is an offer to buy from us.

5.2 You place your order by using the ordering process on our site. This involves selecting the goods, placing them in the shopping cart and transmitting the order to us by         clicking on the “Pay Now” button. This process permits you to check and amend any errors before making an order by using the change function and/or the internet         browser back button. 

5.3 You must ensure that your order and any other information you supply to us is correct and you must promptly update us if there are any changes. 

5.4 We accept your offer and there is a binding contract when we send you a confirmation email. However, we are not obliged to supply any goods which are unavailable,         notwithstanding that we have accepted your offer. If any goods are unavailable, we will notify you of the unavailability as soon as possible and will arrange for a full refund         if you have been charged.


6. Payment and price

6.1 Unless we specifically agreed credit terms with you in writing, payment is in advance by the means stated on our payment page [INSERT LINK] and despatch of the goods is         subject to our receipt of full payment in cleared funds.

6.2 Our prices may change from time to time. The price for the goods you order is as stated on our site at the time you send us your order. VAT or sales tax is included in any         price shown. We may change the amount of VAT charged if the VAT rate changes unless you have paid in full for the goods by the date of the rate change.

6.3 Delivery costs are charged extra at the rate shown on our site at the time you place your order.  These will depend on the delivery method chosen. NB Our charges do not         include customs or import duties which may be applied to your order by the relevant authorities. We have no control of these and it is your separate responsibility to pay         for them. We recommend that you check with your local customs office in advance.

6.4 If we have mis-priced any item by mistake, we are not obliged to supply the item at that price provided we notify you before we despatch it. If we do notify you, then you         can decide if you want to order the item at the correct price but, if you do not, we will provide a full refund of any payments already made.

6.5 You must contact us immediately with full details if you dispute any payment. 

6.6 If any amount due to us is unpaid (including unjustifiable chargeback), without prejudice to any other remedy that may be available to us, we may charge you: (1) a         reasonable additional administration fee; (2) the amount of any third party charges imposed on us; and/or (3) interest (both before and after judgment) on the amount         unpaid at the rate for the time being that would be applicable if the debt were a qualifying debt under the Late Payment of Commercial Debts (Interest) Act 1998.

6.7 If, in our discretion, we give credit: Invoices must be paid within whatever period is specified on the invoice or, if none, 14 days. You must make all payments without any         set-off, counterclaim or any other deduction. Time shall be of the essence for payment.


7. Discount codes

7.1 We may offer discount codes from time to time. All discount codes refer to the price excluding delivery charges. Such codes may only be applied to purchases made         through the account in respect of which the discount code was offered and registered and are not transferrable or redeemable for cash. Unless otherwise stated: codes (1)         are only available for future new orders placed online, (2) cannot be used retrospectively and (3) can only be redeemed once per customer. Also you cannot use more than         one discount code per transaction unless we state otherwise; if we do so, the order in which the codes are to be applied is in our sole discretion. We reserve the right to         reject any discount code if we consider that it is being used in breach of these terms.

7.2 Discount codes are subject to any additional specific terms and conditions which are specified at the point of issue. We reserve the right to discontinue or otherwise         modify any discount codes at any time without prior notice.


8. Delivery

8.1 Delivery will be complete when we deliver to the address which you specify when ordering. We may deliver different parts of your order on different dates.

8.2 Delivery is only to the countries we specify and is otherwise subject to any restrictions on our delivery page [INSERT LINK]. 

8.3 Unless otherwise stated, delivery dates given on our website are estimates only. If you are a Consumer, we have no liability for any losses arising from delay in delivery to     the extent that this is due to circumstances beyond our reasonable control and where we could not have taken reasonable steps to deal with the delay. If you are not a     Consumer, we have no liability for any losses arising from delay in delivery.

8.4 If you receive notification of an unsuccessful attempted delivery, it is your responsibility to use the details provided to contact the delivery company to arrange re-delivery.     If nobody is available to receive the goods, we reserve the right to leave them at the doorstep, hall or reception as available, or with a neighbour.

8.5 This paragraph applies only if you are not a Consumer: You must inspect all goods immediately on receipt and you must notify us in writing of any damage to the goods         within three working days of delivery and within ten working days you must give notice in writing in detail of any ground on which you allege that the goods are not in         accordance with this agreement. If you fail to give such notice, the goods shall be conclusively presumed to be in all respects in accordance with this agreement and free         from any defect which would be apparent on reasonable examination of the goods and you shall be deemed to have accepted the goods accordingly.


9. Risk and ownership

9.1 Risk of damage or loss to the goods passes to you on delivery to you or to somebody identified by you to take possession of the goods or to your carrier.

9.2 You become owner of the goods after the later of delivery of the goods and payment of the price plus delivery charges. Until that happens, you hold the goods on our         behalf. If you are not a Consumer, you must identify the goods as ours and keep them separate from your other goods until ownership passes.


10. Manufacturer guarantees

10.1    Some of the goods that we sell may be subject to a manufacturer’s guarantee. If so, please read the term and conditions of those guarantees.

10.2    A manufacturer’s guarantee does not affect your legal rights if you are a Consumer. You can get advice about your legal rights from your local Trading Standards office             or Citizens' Advice Bureau.


11. Liability

11.1    Nothing in this agreement in any way limits or excludes our liability for negligence causing death or personal injury or for fraud or fraudulent misrepresentation or for             anything which may not legally be excluded or limited. In this section, any reference to us includes our employees and agents.

11.2    The following clauses apply only if you are a Consumer:

            a) We are not responsible for any loss or damage caused by us or our employees or agents in circumstances where:

             i) there is no breach of a legal duty owed to you by us or by any of our employees or agents;

             i) such loss or damage was not reasonably foreseeable (meaning it was not an obvious consequence of our breach or not contemplated by you and us at the time we                 entered into this contract);

             i) such loss or damage is caused by you, for example by not complying with this agreement; or

             i) such loss or damage relates to a business (as we do not intend for goods bought by Consumers to be used for business).

            b) You will be responsible to us for any reasonably foreseeable loss or damage we suffer arising from your breach of this agreement (subject of course to our obligation                 to mitigate any losses).

11.3 The following clauses apply only if you are not a Consumer:

            a) Our liability of any kind (including our own negligence) is limited to the price paid for the goods.

            b) In no event (including our own negligence) will we be liable for any:

             i) economic losses (including, without limit, loss of revenues, profits, contracts, business or anticipated savings);

             i) loss of goodwill or reputation; 

             i) special, indirect or consequential losses; or

             i) damage to or loss of data

                (even if we have been advised of the possibility of such losses).

            c) You will indemnify us against all claims and liabilities directly or indirectly related to your breach of this agreement.

            d) To the extent allowed by law, you and we exclude all terms, whether imposed by statute or by law or otherwise, that are not expressly stated in this agreement.

            e) This agreement constitutes the entire agreement between us with respect to its subject matter and supercedes any previous communications or agreements between                 us. We both acknowledge that there have been no misrepresentations and that neither of us has relied on any pre-contractual statements. Liability for                 misrepresentation (excluding fraudulent misrepresentation) relating to the terms of this agreement is excluded. 


12. Events outside our control

12.1    We are not liable for failure to perform or delay in performing any obligation under this agreement if the failure or delay is caused by any circumstances beyond our             reasonable control including third party telecommunication failures. 


13. Privacy

13.1    You acknowledge and agree that we may process your personal data in accordance with the terms of our privacy and cookies policy [link] which is subject to change             from time to time.


14. Disputes

14.1    These terms and conditions shall be governed by English law and any disputes will be decided only by the courts of the United Kingdom.  

14.2    If you are a Consumer, you may be entitled to use an EU online dispute resolution service to assist with any contractual dispute you may have with us. This service can             be found at http://ec.europa.eu/consumers/odr/. Our email address is [insert].


15. General

15.1    We may send all notices under this agreement by email to the most recent email address you have supplied to us (unless otherwise stated in this agreement). Headings             used in this agreement are for information and not binding. Any failure by either party to exercise or enforce any right or provision of this agreement does not mean             this is a “waiver” (i.e. that it cannot be enforced later). If any part of this agreement is ineffective or unenforceable for any reason, the rest of the agreement shall             continue to apply. We may transfer this agreement to a third party but this will not affect your rights or obligations.  A person who is not a party to this agreement shall             have no rights to enforce this agreement except insofar as expressly stated otherwise.
