Your order constitutes an offer to Us to buy a Product. All orders are subject to acceptance by Us, and We will confirm such acceptance to you by sending you an e-mail that confirms that the Product has been dispatched (the “Dispatch Confirmation“).

The contract between you and Us (“Contract“) will only be formed when We send you the Dispatch Confirmation.
4.2 The Contract will relate only to those Products whose dispatch We have confirmed in the Dispatch Confirmation. We will not be obliged to supply any other Products, which may have been part of your order until the dispatch of such Products has been confirmed in a separate Dispatch Confirmation.
5. CONSUMER RIGHTS
5.1 If you are contracting as a consumer, you may change your mind at any time within thirty days, beginning on the day after you received the Products. In this case you will receive a full refund of the price paid for the Products in accordance with Our refunds policy (set out below).
5.2 If you change your mind, you must inform Us in writing. You must also return the Product(s) to Us immediately, in the same condition in which you received them, and at your own cost and risk. You have a legal obligation to take reasonable care of the Products while they are in your possession. If we don’t receive the item back from you, we may arrange for collection of the item from your residence at your cost. If you fail to comply with this obligation, We may have a right of action against you for compensation.

In the interests of hygiene, We may refuse returns where it’s apparent this hasn’t been done. This provision does not affect your legal rights.

In this case, We will refund the price of the Product in full, excluding shipping costs.
5.6 We will usually refund any money received from you using the same method originally used by you to pay for your purchase.
5.7 Details of this statutory right and an explanation of how to exercise it are provided in the Dispatch Confirmation. This provision does not affect your statutory rights.

The Shipping Charge does not cover the cost of any local authority customs duties or import taxes which will need to be paid by You unless otherwise stated on a time limited promotion.
6.3 Delivery: For accepted orders outside of the United Kingdom and outside of the EU Countries i.e all other international orders, we charge £15 minimum Shipping (“Shipping Charge”). This Shipping Charge only covers the cost of Our shipping company to deliver the Products to you. The Shipping Charge does not cover the cost of any local authority customs duties or import taxes which will need to be paid by You unless otherwise stated on a time limited promotion.
6.4 International orders outside the UK and EU may be subject to local and national import taxes and duties which may be applied when the delivery reaches that destination and which are your responsibility where they apply. If so, the shipping company will contact you by telephone once your Products are in customs to let you know the cost. Be aware that this may delay your delivery time and if Products are held at customs it will be your responsibility to pay the necessary charges to any national or local authorities and to arrange the release of the Products. If you choose not to pay the necessary charges to local authorities to release the Products, We reserve the right to charge any additional costs incurred by Us to you. We have no control over these charges, as duties and taxes vary from country to country and may depend on what Products have been ordered. We are unable to provide you with an estimated cost and you should contact your local customs office for further information before placing your order. We will not refund to you any sums in respect of Products that are held at customs.
6.5 You must comply with all applicable laws and regulations of the country for which the Products are destined. We will not be liable or responsible if you break any such law.

8.6 Our Site contains a large number of Products and it is always possible that, despite Our best efforts, some of the Products listed on Our Site may be incorrectly priced. We will normally verify prices as part of Our dispatch procedures so that, where a Product’s correct price is less than Our stated price, We will charge the lower amount when dispatching the Product to you. If a Product’s correct price is higher than the price stated on Our Site, We will normally, at Our discretion, either contact you for instructions before dispatching the Product, or reject your order and notify you of such rejection.
8.7 We are under no obligation to provide the Product to you at the incorrect (lower) price, even after We have sent you a Dispatch Confirmation, if the pricing error is obvious and unmistakeable and could have reasonably been recognised by you as a mis-pricing. We may end the Contract and refund any sums paid by you. If the Products have been dispatched we can require you return them to Us.
8.8 Payment for all Products must be by credit or debit card. We also accept payment through Amazon Pay, Google Pay, Apple Pay, and PayPal with Mastercard, Maestro, Solo, Visa, Giropay and American Express if listed. Your card will be charged at the time of placing your order.

In this case, We will refund the price of the Product in full, excluding the cost of sending the item to you. However, you will be responsible for the cost of returning the item if you live outside of the UK. (b) for any other reason (for instance, because you have notified Us in accordance with clause 18 (see below) that you do not agree to any change in these terms and conditions or in any of Our policies, or because you claim that the Product is defective), We will examine the returned Product and will notify you of your refund via e-mail within a reasonable period of time.
