2. How the contract is formed between you and us
2.1 You may place an order to purchase a Product advertised for sale on the Site by following the onscreen prompts after clicking on the item you are interested in. You will have an opportunity to check and correct any input errors in your order by going to “View Basket” up until the point at which you submit your order by clicking the “Go to Checkout”.
At this point you will be asked to Sign In or Register if you are a new customer – see section
2.2 After placing an order, you will receive an e-mail from us acknowledging that we have received your order, giving an order number and a summary of 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 will only be formed when we send you the Dispatch Confirmation.
2.3 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.
2.4 We may choose not to accept your order for any reason and we will not be liable to you or to anyone else in those circumstances.
2.5 We may be unable to process your order if:
a) the Product you ordered is out of stock or discontinued; or
b) there is a problem with authorisation of the payment on your credit card.
3.1 We will deliver the Products to you by standard delivery (e.g. first class, Royal Mail or 48 hour Parcelforce). This is subject to a £3.95 charge for all orders to a total value of £39.99. All orders of £40 and over will not be required to pay the postage and packing charge of £3.95.
3.2 We will deliver directly to the delivery address specified in your order. We can deliver to all addresses within the United Kingdom of Great Britain (England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland).

5.5 By using a credit/debit card to pay for your order, you confirm that the card being used is yours. All credit/debit card holders are subject to validation checks and authorisation by the card issuer. If the issuer of your card refuses to authorise payment we will not accept your order and we will not be liable for any delay or non-delivery and we are not obliged to inform you of the reason for the refusal. We are not responsible for your card issuer or bank charging you as a result of our processing of your credit/debit card payment in accordance with your order.
5.6 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 rectify any such errors as soon as possible once we become aware of them. If a Product´s correct price is different from 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.
