- This site requires you to enter your post code in order to validate if delivery is possible to your area. Should you change this during the checkout process, we may not be able to deliver goods to you and as a result your order will not be processed and no contract will be formed.

How the Contract is Formed Between You and Us
- After placing an order, you will receive an e-mail from us acknowledging that we have received your order. At this point payment will be taken for the goods and we will contact you to confirm a delivery date. 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 us ("Contract") will only be formed when we send you the Dispatch Confirmation.
