3.4 you are accessing the Website from the United Kingdom.
4. HOW THE CONTRACT IS FORMED BETWEEN YOU AND US
4.1 After placing an order, you will receive an e-mail from us acknowledging that we have received your order. Please note that this does not mean that your order has been accepted. 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 and you ("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 cancel a Contract at any time within seven working 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 in clause 9 below).
5.2 To cancel a Contract, 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 you fail to comply with this obligation, we may have a right of action against you for compensation.
6. AVAILABILITY AND DELIVERY
Your order will be fulfilled by the delivery date set out in the Dispatch Confirmation or, if no delivery date is specified, then within 30 days of the date of the Dispatch Confirmation, unless there are exceptional circumstances.
7. RISK AND TITLE
7.1 The Products will be at your risk from the time of delivery.
7.2 Ownership of the Products will only pass to you when we receive full payment of all sums due to us in respect of the Products, including delivery charges, and all other sums which are or which become due to us from you.
7.3 Until ownership of the Products has passed to you, you will:
7.3.1 hold the Products on a fiduciary basis as our bailee;
7.3.2 store the Products (at no cost to us) in such a way that they remain readily identifiable as our property;
7.3.3 not destroy, deface or obscure any identifying mark on the Products; and
7.3.4 maintain the Products in satisfactory condition and keep them insured against all risks.
7.4 Your right to possession of the Products shall terminate immediately if you have a bankruptcy order made against you or make an arrangement or composition with your creditors, or otherwise take the benefit of any statutory provision for the time being in force for the relief of insolvent debtors.
7.5 We shall be entitled to recover payment for the Products notwithstanding that ownership of any of the Products has not passed to you.
8. PRODUCT REPRESENTATION, PRICE AND PAYMENT
8.1 While we make every effort to represent our products faithfully through photography and text descriptions, we cannot guarantee that all products will be exactly as shown on the website. Colours cannot be reproduced accurately on all display devices and from time to time there may be minor technical or aesthetic differences between the product photographed and the one you receive. Rest assured that any differences are a consequence of design improvements made to ensure that we only supply the highest quality products to our customers.
8.2 The price of any Products will be as quoted on the Website from time to time, except in cases of obvious error.
8.3 These prices include VAT but exclude delivery costs, which will be added to the total amount due. The delivery costs will be notified to you before you place your order.
8.4 Prices are liable to change at any time, but changes will not affect orders in respect of which we have already sent you a Dispatch Confirmation.
8.5 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.
8.6 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.
8.7 Payment for all Products must be by credit or debit card. We accept payment by Visa, Visa Debit / Delta, Visa Electron, MasterCard, Meastro UK, American Express and card payments via PayPal.
9. OUR REFUNDS POLICY
9.1 When you return a Product to us:
9.1.1 because you have cancelled the Contract between us within the seven-day cooling-off period (see clause 5.1), we will process the refund due to you as soon as possible and, in any case, within 30 days of the day you have given notice of your cancellation. In this case, we will refund the price of the Product in full, including the cost of sending the item to you. However, you will be responsible for the cost of returning the item to us.
9.1.2 for any other reason, we will examine the returned Product and will notify you of your refund via e-mail within a reasonable period of time. We will usually process the refund due to you as soon as possible and, in any case, within 30 days of the day we confirmed to you via e-mail that you were entitled to a refund for the defective Product. Products returned by you because of a defect will be refunded in full, including a refund of the delivery charges for sending the item to you and the cost incurred by you in returning the item to us.
9.2 We will usually refund any money received from you using the same method originally used by you to pay for your purchase.

10.3.2 under section 2(3) of the Consumer Protection Act 1987;
10.3.3 for fraud or fraudulent misrepresentation; or
10.3.4 for any matter for which it would be illegal for us to exclude, or attempt to exclude, our liability.

14.3 Our performance under any Contract is deemed to be suspended for the period that the Force Majeure Event continues, and we will have an extension of time for performance for the duration of that period.

15.1 If we fail, at any time during the term of a Contract, to insist upon strict performance of any of your obligations under the Contract or any of these terms and conditions, or if we fail to exercise any of the rights or remedies to which we are entitled under the Contract, this shall not constitute a waiver of such rights or remedies and shall not relieve you from compliance with such obligations.
15.2 A waiver by us of any default shall not constitute a waiver of any subsequent default.
15.3 No waiver by us of any of these terms and conditions shall be effective unless it is expressly stated to be a waiver and is communicated to you in writing in accordance with clause 12 above.
If any of these terms and conditions or any provisions of a Contract are determined by any competent authority to be invalid, unlawful or unenforceable to any extent, such term, condition or provision will to that extent be severed from the remaining terms, conditions and provisions which will continue to be valid to the fullest extent permitted by law.
