As part of our checkout process you will be given the opportunity to check your order and
to correct any errors. We will send you an order acknowledgement, detailing the products
you have ordered. 
2.2 Our acceptance of an order takes place when we dispatch the order. When we dispatch
the order the purchase contract will be made unless we have notified you that we do not

2.3 We may refuse to accept an order:
 (a) where goods, services or information ordered by you are not available;
 (b) where we cannot obtain authorisation for your payment;
 (c) if there has been a pricing or product description error;

 (d) if you do not meet any eligibility criteria set out in our terms and conditions; or
 (e) if we do not deliver to your area;
Where we do not accept your order but have processed your payment, we will re-credit
your account with any amount deducted by us from your debit or credit card as soon as
possible, but in any event within 30 days of your order. We will not be obliged to pay any
additional amount as compensation for disappointment. 
Please note: We do not take payment for orders until they are ready for dispatch, however
as part of the secure checkout process, your payment card will be pre-authorised for the
amount of your transaction.
3. PRICING

3.2 Where we charge separately for packing, carriage and insurance and other relevant
charges, the appropriate rate will be displayed to you prior to you placing your order.

goods.

import of the goods you purchase.
