You must be over 18 to place an order.
All orders are subject to acceptance and availability. You will be notified by email of any goods ordered that are not available and given the option to wait until the item is in stock or to cancel the order.
You are responsible to provide us with a valid email address so that we can contact you if necessary. Any orders placed by you will be treated as an offer to purchase the goods or services from us and we have the right to reject such offers at any time prior to acceptance.
You shall be responsible for ensuring the accuracy of the details provided on the order form and we will not accept an order unless all details requested on the order form have been entered correctly.
A contract between you and us will take place when we accept your order by (i) debiting your credit or debit card, or (ii) despatching goods to you.
We are entitled to refuse any order placed by you and will not be required to provide an explanation.
As the buyer, your goods will be delivered to you at the address provided on the order form. We can deliver to an address other than the billing address, but please note that extra documentation may be needed to comply with such orders.
You will become the owner of goods you have ordered when they have been paid for and delivered to you.
Any dates quoted for delivery of goods are approximate only and we shall not be liable for any delay in delivery of goods however caused. If, however, we are unable to deliver your goods by the date quoted for delivery, you shall be entitled to cancel the order at any time before delivery takes place.
All prices are inclusive of VAT at the current rates and are correct at the time of entering the information onto the system. Prices quoted are for delivery in the United Kingdom unless otherwise specified. Prices are in Pounds Sterling unless otherwise specified.
We reserve the right, by giving notice to you at any time before delivery, to increase the price of goods or services to reflect any increase in the cost to us, which is due to any factor beyond our control (such as without limitation, any foreign exchange fluctuation, significant increase in the costs of labour, materials or other costs of manufacture).
In the unlikely event of there being such an increase in the price of goods or services you shall be entitled to cancel the order at any time before delivery or performance.
In the unlikely event that the price or description of an item or service has been incorrectly advertised, we will contact you by email, telephone or post to ask whether you wish to proceed with your order with the correct price or description. If you are not happy to proceed, or we are unable to obtain your instructions, we will cancel the order. Unless we have already despatched your order, we will not be obliged to supply products at the incorrect price or based on an incorrect description.
Payment can be made by any major credit or debit card or through an electronic payment account as explained on the order form. All types of cards accepted are listed on the home page and payment will be debited and cleared from your account before the despatch of goods to you.

If a product is damaged or faulty, please contact us at once and no later than 10 working days of receipt, or of the fault developing, and we will arrange a refund or replacement as you request.

If you are not happy with the replacement, you can return it in accordance with our returns policy as outlined above under paragraph 5.1.
Please allow 30 days from receipt by us of your item for your refund to be processed or replacement item despatched.
We reserve the right to refuse to issue a refund/replacement item and to recover the cost of the returns delivery from you in the event that the item is found to have suffered damage after delivery or has been misused or used other than in accordance with the instructions or if the problem is due to normal wear and tear.
