TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF TRADE
Our terms and conditions of trade explain how we will handle your order, your rights and our duty to you.
ORDERING AND PAYMENTS
Orders are subject to the required stock availability. Items that you add to your shopping basket on the site are not reserved for you and are available for sale to other customers browsing the site at the same time. Stock is reserved for you once you have placed your order and the sale is finalised once the order dispatches from our warehouse and a dispatch confirmation is emailed to you.
We accept payment by Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Maestro, Maestro International, and Visa Electron. By placing an order with us, you acknowledge that we will share your personal information and payment details with these providers.
Payments for all orders are subject to fraud checks and checks by the card issuer. By submitting a payment through the site, you are granting permission for such checks as required. For your security, when using a credit/debit card, the billing name, address and phone number must match that of the payment card. We reserve the right to cancel any order that does not match these criteria.
By submitting your order on our site, you are confirming that the credit/debit card is yours or that you have authority from the cardholder to make the payment.
We reserve the right to refuse payments and orders for customers who are not aged 18 or over, or for any order at our own discretion. If we are not able to accept your order we will inform you of this in writing and will not charge you for the goods.
Goods may vary slightly from their pictures. Although we have made every effort to display the colours accurately, we can’t guarantee that a device’s display of the colours accurately reflects the colour of the goods.
We check the prices on our website regularly, but if we find the price has changed or that there has been a pricing error when we receive your order, we will contact you and ask if you wish to continue with your purchase at the correct price. If you confirm that you do wish to proceed, then your confirmation constitutes a new order to us. Please remember that the sale is not finalised until we have dispatched the goods from our warehouse.
Prices shown on our website are inclusive of UK and EU VAT. Prices shown do not include delivery costs. The costs of delivery will be as displayed to you on our website and will be confirmed to you while placing the order.
LIMITATIONS ON OUR LIABILITY TO YOU

for death or personal injury resulting from our negligence or the negligence of our employees or agents
under section 2(3) of the Consumer Protection Act 1987
for any matter for which it would be illegal for us to exclude, or attempt, our liability.
Subject to paragraph 7 above, and unless prohibited by your local statutory law, these terms and conditions of trade shall not:

make us responsible for any damage or loss caused to you where you are not entering into these terms and conditions of trade as a consumer (as defined under your local statutory law).
Our aggregate liability to you for any loss or damage arising in connection with these terms and conditions of trade shall be limited in respect of each claim to the purchase price of your order or orders.
We are not responsible for any delay or failure to comply with our obligations under these terms and conditions of trade if the delay or failure arises out of any event which is beyond our control. Such events shall include, without limitation, failure of infrastructure, government intervention, wars, civil commotion, hijacking, fire, flood, accident, storm, strikes, lockouts, terrorist attacks or industrial action affecting us or our suppliers.
By using this website, you accept that communication with us will mainly be electronic. We will contact you by email or provide you with information by posting notices on this website. For contractual purposes, you consent to receive communications from us electronically (to the most recent email address you have provided to us) and you agree that all agreements, notices, disclosures and other communications that we provide to you electronically satisfy any legal requirement that such communications be in writing.
If any of these Terms & Conditions of Trade are determined to be illegal, invalid or otherwise unenforceable by reason of law then, to the extent and within the jurisdiction in which that term is illegal, invalid or unenforceable, it shall be severed and deleted from these terms and the remaining Terms & Conditions of Trade shall survive, remain in full force and effect and continue to be binding and enforceable.
If you breach these Terms & Conditions of Trade and we take no action, we will still be entitled to use our rights and remedies in any other situation where you breach these Terms & Conditions of Trade.
