Images of Goods are for illustrative purposes only. There may be slight variations in color between the image of a product and the actual product sold due to differences in computer displays and lighting conditions;
Images and/or descriptions of packaging are for illustrative purposes only, the actual packaging of Goods may vary. Please note that this does not exclude our responsibility for mistakes due to negligence on our part and refers only to minor variations of the correct Goods, not to different Goods altogether. Please refer to our Warranty if you receive Goods that are not as described.
Where appropriate, you may be required to select the required color and number of the Goods that you are purchasing. We cannot guarantee that Goods will always be available.

Minor changes may, from time to time, be made to certain Goods between your Order being placed and us processing that Order and dispatching the Goods, for example, to reflect changes in relevant laws and regulatory requirements, or to address particular technical or security issues. Any such changes will not change any main characteristics of the Goods and will not normally affect your use of those Goods. However, if any change is made that would affect your use of the Goods, suitable information will be provided to you.

Prices are shown on the Site and include VAT (sales tax) for customers in the UK. Other taxes and customs duties are not included in our prices and are payable locally by you. We pay sales tax and duties on behalf of recipients for all orders shipped to an individual domestic address in the EU only.

We make all reasonable efforts to ensure that all prices shown on the Site are correct at the time of going online. We reserve the right to change prices and to add, alter, or remove special offers from time to time without notice. Changes in price will not affect any order that you have already placed. If the price of Goods you have ordered changes between your Order being placed and us processing that Order and taking payment, you will be charged the price shown on the Site at the time of placing your Order.

You may be required to pay extra for delivery and it might not be possible for us to deliver to some locations. Our delivery charges are set out in the Site.

We may from time to time offer promotional discount codes (either directly or via third parties) which may apply in respect of any, or certain specified, purchases made through the Site. Such codes may only be applied to purchases of full-price items and cannot be used in conjunction with any other offer or discount unless otherwise stated. They must be applied during the checkout process and may not be applied retrospectively.

2.4 Orders – How Contracts Are Formed

The Site will guide you through the ordering process. Before submitting your Order, you will be given the opportunity to review your Order and amend it. Please ensure that you have checked your Order carefully before submitting it.

If, during the order process, you provide us with incorrect or incomplete information, please contact us as soon as possible. If we are unable to process your Order due to incorrect or incomplete information, we will contact you to ask to correct it. If you do not give us accurate or complete information within a reasonable time of our request, we will cancel your Order and treat the Contract as being at an end. If we incur any costs because of your incorrect or incomplete information, we may pass those costs on to you.

No part of the Site constitutes a contractual offer capable of acceptance. Your Order constitutes a contractual offer that we may, at our sole discretion, accept. Our acknowledgment of receipt of your Order does not mean that we have accepted it. Our acceptance of your order takes place on the dispatch to you of the products ordered unless we notify you that we do not accept your order. Only once we have dispatched the goods to you will there be a legally binding Contract between us and you.

We reserve the right to refuse any order you place with us. We reserve the right to limit or prohibit orders that, in our sole judgment, appear to be placed by dealers, re-sellers or distributors. We may, in our sole discretion, limit or cancel quantities purchased per person, per household or per order. These restrictions may include orders placed by or under the same customer account, the same credit card, and/or orders that use the same billing and/or shipping address. If we make a change to or cancel an order, we may attempt to notify you by contacting the e-mail and/or billing address/phone number provided at the time the order was made.

In the unlikely event that we do not accept or cannot fulfill your Order for any reason, no payment will be taken under normal circumstances. If we have taken payment, any such sums will be refunded to you as soon as possible and in any event within 7 working days.

2.5 Order Dispatch Confirmations

Order dispatch Confirmations shall contain the following information:

  • your Order Number;
  • a link to the order containing Confirmation of the Goods;
  • if you have chosen a tracked delivery service, the tracking number and service for your order;
    Any refunds due will be made using the same payment method that you used when ordering the Goods.

2.6 Payment

Payment for Goods and related delivery charges must always be made in advance, and you will be prompted to pay during the order process. Available methods of payment are shown on the Site.

2.7 Delivery, Risk and Ownership

We will deliver the goods ordered by you to the address you give us for delivery at the time you make your order. It is your responsibility to ensure that the delivery address you give us is correct and accurate and that there is somebody to take delivery of the goods from the delivery service used.

You will become the owner of the goods you have ordered when they have been dispatched to you.

If your order is returned to us because the courier or postal service could not complete the delivery to you for whatever reason, then you will be responsible for the repeat delivery costs.

All Goods purchased through the Site will normally be delivered according to the times set out on the shipping information at checkout.

Delivery shall be deemed complete once we have delivered the Goods to the address you have provided - as evidenced by proof of delivery confirmation from our carrier, where applicable.

In the unlikely event that we fail to deliver the Goods within 30 calendar days of our Order Confirmation, you may treat the Contract as being at an end immediately and be entitled to a refund of the amounts paid by you.

Any refunds due will be made using the same payment method that you used when ordering the Goods.

2.8 Cancelling Orders

Your order can't be amended or cancelled once you've placed it. This includes swapping products, changing your delivery address, and changing payment methods. You can return any unwanted orders to us for a refund unless your order is for personalised goods.

2.9 Returning Goods

For orders placed through this Site, please see our Returns & Exchange Policy- link here.

If any event described immediately above occurs that is likely to adversely affect our performance of any of our obligations under these Terms:

  • We will inform you as soon as is reasonably possible;
  • We will take all reasonable steps to minimize the delay;
  • To the extent that we cannot minimize the delay, our affected obligations under these Terms will be suspended, and any time limits that we are bound by will be extended accordingly;
