No variation of these Sale Terms will be binding upon us unless agreed to by in writing by one of our authorized representatives. If you are unable to understand, or have any questions about these Sale Terms please contact us using the contact information set out on the Website. You will be required to confirm that you have read and accept, and agree to be bound by, these Sale Terms before you submit an order to us. Without limiting the foregoing, by placing an order for any Product you accept and agree to be bound by these Sale Terms.

Offers and Prices
We will have the right, at any time, to make changes to information about Products displayed on our Website, including information about prices, description or the availability of Products, and we may do so without first giving you notice of the changes. We will not make any changes to the price, availability or description of any Products after we have accepted an order to supply the Products to you.
The prices on the Website are exclusive of shipping charges and sales, use, excise and all other taxes.
Order and Acceptance
If you would like to order Products, you can use the order process on our Website to place an order.
Each order submitted constitutes an offer to purchase Products from us. Orders are subject to our acceptance and are not binding on us until accepted pursuant to an order acceptance email as described below. We may, at our discretion, refuse to accept your order, including where orders cannot be processed due to an error in information you have provided to us, for example, where you provide us with:
an incorrect payment card number, expiration date or card security code;
incorrect billing information (e.g., where the billing information you provide is different from the information that the bank which issued your payment card has on record);
insufficient or an incorrect shipping address (i.e., street address, city, country or postcode); or
there is an error on our Website relating to the Products that you have ordered, for example an error relating to the price or description of the Products as displayed on our Website; or
the Products that you have ordered are no longer available through our Website; or
the destination to which the Product is requested to be shipped is beyond our scope of delivery.
We will, unless we suspect that your order was placed for fraudulent purposes, send you an email to the email address that you have provided to us if we are unable to accept your order, informing you of the reason.
After we have received your order via the Website, you will receive an email from us confirming receipt of your order, usually within minutes. If you do not receive an email, you should email or call us before you try to place another order for the same Products. You should note that the email that we send to you confirming receipt of your order does not constitute acceptance of your order.
Your order is only accepted by us if you receive a separate order acceptance email. The purchase and sale contract between you and us is created when we send you such order acceptance email. If your order contains more than one Product, and we only accept parts of the Products you ordered (“Accepted Products”) in the order acceptance email, the purchase and sale contract between you and us shall be created only with regard to the Accepted Products.
We will send you a further email when we dispatch all, or if earlier the first part, of the Products covered by our order acceptance to confirm that your order has been dispatched.
We will take reasonable steps to ensure that the prices and other information about Products on our Website are accurate. If there is an error relating to Products for which you have placed an order, we may reject your order. If we reject your order because of an error, we will notify you at the email address or, if you placed your order over the telephone, the telephone number that you have provided to us and ask you whether you would like to re-submit your order to purchase the relevant Products once we have corrected the error. If we have notified you that we have accepted your order, you will not be required to pay more for the product than the price that was displayed on our Website at the time that you placed your order for the Products.
If you have any questions, suggestions or concerns regarding our order acceptance policy, or if you consider that your order was rejected by us in error, please contact us.
The inclusion of any Products on our Website does not imply, warrant or guarantee that the Products will be available if you wish to place an order to purchase it.
Products on Backorder
We will notify you at the email address that you have provided, if we are unable to deliver the Products on backorder within thirty (30) days from the date of your order (“Products on Backorder”) and ask you if you would like us to send you the Products on Backorder when it becomes available or if you would like to cancel your order. If we do not receive a response to our email, we will assume that you do not want us to cancel your order and so we will ship to you the Products covered by your order as soon as it is in stock.
Any Products on Backorder will be shipped by our standard delivery service when it becomes available.
You can cancel your order for Products on Backorder at any point prior to shipment of Products on Backorder by emailing us.
