- We take payment from your card at the time we receive your order, once we have checked your card details and anticipated stock availability. Goods are subject to availability confirmation and price checking. In the event that we are unable to supply the goods exactly as detailed, we will inform you of this as soon as possible at which point a refund or alternative purchase can be discussed by our experts. A full refund will always be offered if required where we have already received your payment for the goods.
- The price you pay is the price displayed on this website at the time we receive your order and confirm that your chosen goods can be shipped. Whilst we make every effort to try and ensure that all prices on our website are accurate, errors sometimes occur, hence why we reserve the right to cancel orders prior to Shipping Confirmation.

If we are unable to contact you we will treat the order as cancelled. If the order is cancelled and has been paid, you will of course receive a full refund.
