You must read these Terms and Conditions of Sale carefully as they tell you how we will provide products to you, how you and we may change or end the contract, what to do if there is a problem and other important information.
    2. By placing an order through our site, you confirm that you have read, understood and agree to these Terms and Conditions of Sale in their entirety. If you do not agree to these Terms and Conditions of Sale, you must not order any product through our site.
  2. Our contract with you
    1. Please note that completion of the online checkout process does not constitute our acceptance of your offer to purchase products or services from us. Our acceptance of your order will take place when we e-mail you to accept it, at which point a contract will come into existence between you and us.
    2. We will assign an order number to your order and tell you what it is when we accept your order. It will help us if you can tell us the order number whenever you contact us about your order.
    3. Our website is solely for the promotion of our products worldwide, excluding North and South America (Serviced Countries). Unfortunately, we do not accept orders from addresses outside the Serviced Countries.
    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 limited on our resources which we could not reasonably plan for, because we have identified an error in the price or description of the product or because we are unable to meet a delivery deadline you have specified.
  3. Our Products
    1. The images of the products on our website 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.
    2. The packaging of the product may vary from that shown on images on our website.
  4. Your rights to make changes
    1. If you wish to make a change to the product you have ordered please contact us. We will let you know if the change is possible. If it is possible we will let you know about any changes to the price of the product, the timing of supply or anything else which would be necessary as a result of your requested change and ask you to confirm whether you wish to go ahead with the change.
  5. Our rights to make changes
    1. We may change the product to reflect changes in relevant laws and regulatory requirements. In addition, we may make changes to these terms or the product, but if we do so we will notify you and you may then contact us to end the contract and receive a full refund before the changes take effect.
  6. Price and Payment
    1. The price of the product (which includes VAT and excludes delivery unless stated otherwise) will be the price indicated on the order pages in UK Pounds Sterling (£), the European Union (€), or USD ($) when you placed your order. We use our best efforts to ensure that the price of product advised to you is correct. However please see clause 6.3 for what happens if we discover an error in the price of the product you order.
    2. If the rate of VAT changes between your order date and the date we supply the product, we will adjust the rate of VAT that you pay, unless you have already paid for the product in full before the change in the rate of VAT takes effect.
    3. 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 the product's correct price at your order date is higher than the price stated, we will contact you for your instructions before we accept your order. If we accept and process your order where a pricing error is obvious and unmistakeable 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.
    4. During the checkout process, you will be asked to enter your payment details. All fields indicated as compulsory must be completed. Please note that we may collect and store your information, using an encrypted secure payment mechanism and will only use your information in accordance with our Privacy and Cookie Policy.
    5. We accept payment with Visa and Mastercard. All card payments are subject to authorisation by your card issuer. You must pay for the products before we dispatch them. We will not charge your credit or debit card until we dispatch the products to you.
    6. You own a product once we have received payment in full.

    2. We will deliver the products to you as soon as reasonably possible and in any event within 30 days after the day on which we accept your order.
    3. If our supply of the products is delayed by an event outside our control then we will contact you as soon as possible to let you know and we will take steps to minimise the effect of the delay. Provided we do this we will not be liable for delays caused by the event, but if there is a risk of substantial delay you may contact us to end the contract and receive a refund for any products you have paid for but not received.
    4. All risk in the products you order shall pass to you and will be your responsibility from the time we deliver the product to the address you gave us or you or a carrier organised by you collect it from us.

    3. It will be your sole responsibility to comply with all applicable laws and regulations for the country which the products are destined. We will not be liable or responsible if you break any such law.
  9. Your right to end the contract
    1. You have a legal right to cancel the contract under the Consumer Contracts (Information, Cancellation and Additional Charges) Regulations 2013 at any time up to 14 calendar days after the day on which you receive the products you ordered. This means that during the relevant period if you change your mind or decide for any other reason that you do not want to receive or keep a product, you can notify us of your decision to cancel the contract and receive a refund. Advice about your legal right to cancel the Contract is available from your local Citizens' Advice Bureau or Trading Standards office.
    2. To cancel the contract, you just need to let us know that you have decided to cancel. The easiest way to do this is to contact us.
    3. If you cancel the contract before you receive the products we will: (a) refund you the price you paid for the products. However, please note we are permitted by law to reduce your refund to reflect any reduction in the value of the goods, if this has been caused by your handling them in a way which would not be permitted in a shop. If we refund you the price paid before we are able to inspect the goods and later discover you have handled them in an unacceptable way, you must pay us an appropriate amount; (b) refund any delivery costs you have paid, although, as permitted by law, the maximum refund will be the costs of delivery by the least expensive delivery method we offer (provided that this is a common and generally acceptable method). For example, if we offer delivery of a product within 3-5 days at one cost but you choose to have the product delivered within 24 hours at a higher cost, then we will only refund what you would have paid for the cheaper delivery option; and (c) make any refunds due to you as soon as possible. Your refund will be made within 14 days from the day on which we receive the product back from you or, if earlier, the day on which you provide us with evidence that you have sent the product back to us.
    4. If a product has been delivered to you before you decide to cancel your contract: (a) then you must return it to us without undue delay and in any event not later than 14 days after the day on which you let us know that you wish to cancel the contract; and (b) unless the product is faulty or not as described, you will be responsible for the cost of returning the Products to us.
    5. If you have returned the products to us because they are faulty or mis-described, we will refund the price of the products in full, together with any applicable delivery charges, and any reasonable costs you incur in returning the item to us.
    6. We will refund you on the credit card or debit card used by you to pay. If you used vouchers to pay for the product we may refund you in vouchers.
    7. We are under a legal duty to supply products that are in conformity with this contract. You have legal rights as a consumer in relation to products that are faulty or not as described. Advice about your legal rights is available from your local Citizens' Advice Bureau or Trading Standards office.
  10. Our goodwill refund policy
    1. Our goodwill refund or exchange policy (where there is no legal right to a refund or exchange under the Consumer Contracts Regulations or otherwise) is offered on products when they are returned in a resalable condition with a receipt or parcel summary document within 28 days of purchase.
    2. Our goodwill refund policy does not affect your legal rights under the Consumer Contracts Regulations 2013.
  11. Liability
    1. If we fail to comply with these Terms and Conditions of Sale, we are responsible for loss or damage you suffer that is a foreseeable result of our breaking this contract or our failing to use reasonable care and skill, but we are not responsible for any loss or damage that is not foreseeable. Loss or damage is foreseeable if either it is obvious that it will happen or if, at the time the contract was made, both we and you knew it might happen.
    2. We only supply the products for domestic and private use. If you use the products for any commercial, business or re-sale purpose we will have no liability to you for any loss of profit, loss of business, business interruption, or loss of business opportunity.
    3. There are certain liabilities which we cannot exclude by law and nothing in these Terms and Conditions of Sale limits our liability for personal injury or death caused by our negligence or fraud.
  12. How we may use your personal information
    1. We will use the personal information you provide to us in accordance with our Privacy and Cookie Policy: (a) to supply the products to you; (b) to process your payment for the products; and (c) if you agreed to this during the order process, to inform you about similar products that we provide, but you may stop receiving these at any time by contacting us.
    2. We will only give your personal information to third parties where the law either requires or allows us to do so.
  13. Other Important Terms
    1. We may transfer our rights and obligations under these terms to another organisation. We will always tell you in writing if this happens and we will ensure that the transfer will not affect your rights under the contract.
    2. You may only transfer your rights or your obligations under these terms to another person if we agree to this in writing. However, you may transfer our guarantee at clause 10.1 to a person who has acquired the product. We may require the person to whom the guarantee is transferred to provide reasonable evidence that they are now the owner of the relevant item or property, for example by providing the receipt or delivery note of the goods.
    3. This contract is between you and us. No other person shall have any rights to enforce any of its terms, except as explained in clause 13.2 in respect of our guarantee. Neither of us will need to get the agreement of any other person in order to end the contract or make any changes to these terms.
    4. Each of the clauses of these terms operates separately. If any court or relevant authority decides that any of them are unlawful, the remaining clauses will remain in full force and effect.
    5. If we do not insist immediately that you do anything you are required to do under these terms, or if we delay in taking steps against you in respect of your breaking this contract, that will not mean that you do not have to do those things and it will not prevent us taking steps against you at a later date.
    6. These terms are governed by the laws of England and Wales and any disputes shall be subject to the exclusive jurisdiction of the courts of England and Wales.
