- Purchasing on our site
4.1. When you place an order to purchase a product from our site, we will send you an e-mail confirming receipt of your order and containing the details of your order. Please note, that this confirmation of receipt of order does not constitute acceptance of your offer to enter into a contract for the sale of products to you. Acceptance of your offer shall take place only if we provide you with an order confirmation by email for the products confirmed therein, or, in the alternative, upon delivery of the products to you in accordance with these Terms, at which point a contract will come into existence between us and you.
4.2. Due to high demands some items may not be in stock at the time you place your order.
4.3. Our site is solely for the promotion of our products in the European Union. Unfortunately, on our website we do not accept orders from or deliver products to addresses outside the European Union. Contact our customer service team by phone on 0044 2035149347 or by writing to us at firstname.lastname@example.org for any orders for shipping outside the European Union.
4.4. If we are unable to accept your order, we will inform you of this in writing and will not charge you for the product. This might be because the product is out of stock, because of unexpected limits on our resources which we could not reasonably plan for or because we have identified an error in the price or description of the product.
- Our Products
5.1. The images of the products on our site are for illustrative purposes only. Although we have made every effort to display the colours accurately, we cannot guarantee that a device's display of the colours accurately reflects the colour of the products. Your product may vary slightly from those images.
5.2. The packaging of the product may vary from that shown in images on our website.
- Payment conditions
6.1. The purchase price for products is due immediately upon order confirmation and will be the price indicated on the order page when you placed your order.
6.2. We take all reasonable care to ensure that the price of the product advised to you is correct. However it is always possible that, despite our best efforts, some of the products we sell may be incorrectly priced. We will normally check prices before accepting your order so that, where the product’s correct price at your order date is less than our stated price at your order date, we will charge the lower amount. If we accept and process your order where a pricing error is obvious and unmistakable and could reasonably have been recognised by you as a mispricing, we may end the contract, refund you any sums you have paid and require the return of any products provided to you.
6.3. We accept payment including Visa, Visa Debit, Mastercard, Maestro, AMEX, IDEAL and Paypal. The ordered products will be dispatched to you only upon prior receipt of full payment to our payment provider.
