6. HOW THE CONTRACT IS FORMED
The information set out in the Terms and the detail contained on this website do not constitute an offer for sale but rather an invitation to treat. No contract in respect of any products shall exist between us and you until your order has been expressly accepted by us (whether or not funds have been deducted from your account). If we do not accept your offer and funds have already been deducted, these will be fully refunded. To place an order, you will be required to follow the shopping process online and press the "Authorise payment" button to submit the order. After this, you will receive an e-mail from us acknowledging that we have received your order (the "Acknowledgement of Receipt"). Please note that this does not mean that your order has been accepted. Your order constitutes your offer to us to buy one or more products from us. 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 "Order Confirmation"). The contract for the purchase of a product between us ("Contract") will only be formed when we send you the Order Confirmation. The Contract will relate only to those products whose dispatch we have confirmed in the Order 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 Order Confirmation.
7. AVAILABILITY OF PRODUCTS
All orders for products are subject to availability and in this regard, in the event of supply difficulties or because products are no longer in stock, we reserve the right to give you information about substitute products of an equal or higher quality and value which you can order. If you do not wish to order such substitute products we will reimburse any monies that you might have paid.
We reserve the right to withdraw any products from this website at any time and/or remove or edit any materials or content on this website. Whilst we will use our reasonable endeavours to process all the orders submitted to us, there may be exceptional circumstances which mean that we may need to refuse to process or accept an order after we have received it or sent you an Acknowledgement of Receipt, which we reserve the right to do at any time, at our sole discretion. We will not be liable to you or any other third party by reason of our withdrawing any product from this website, removing or editing any materials or content on this website or for refusing to process or accept an order after we have received it or sent you an Acknowledgement of Receipt.
Subject to availability, (see Clause 7 above) and unless there are any exceptional circumstances, we will endeavour to fulfill your order for product(s) listed in the Order Confirmation by the delivery date set out in the Order Confirmation or, if no estimated delivery date is specified, then within 30 days of the date of the Acknowledgment of Receipt, unless there are exceptional circumstances. Reasons for delay could include:
1. Customisation of products;
2. Specialist item;
3. Unforeseen circumstances; or
4. Delivery area.
If for any reason we cannot meet the delivery date you will be kept informed and offered a choice of either continuing with the extended delivery time or cancellation with a full refund. Please note however that we do not deliver on Saturdays or Sundays. Please ensure that products ordered can fit into your home, the areas for which it is intended or location for delivery. If the product(s) do not so fit, you can still accept delivery or you can return the products, but any return will be at your own cost (see further our Returns Policy). For the purpose of these Terms "delivery" or "delivered" shall be deemed to have occurred upon signing for receipt of the products at the agreed delivery address.
10. UNABLE TO DELIVER
If we are unable to deliver, we will try to find a safe secure place to leave your parcel. If we cannot find a safe and secure place, your product(s) will be returned to our depot. We will leave a note explaining where your parcel is and how you can rearrange delivery. If you are not at the delivery location at the time agreed, please contact us again to rearrange delivery for another mutually convenient day. However, we might have to charge you for the storage and redelivery of the product(s). Such costs are set out in our Delivery Costs Guide. Upon lapse of 30 days of the moment when your order is ready for delivery, without such order having been delivered on grounds not attributable to us, we may understand that you wish to cancel the Contract and it may be treated as terminated. Should we deem the Contract terminated, we will refund the price paid for such products as soon as possible and anyway within 30 days of the date on which we shall deem the Contract terminated. In such cases, we shall be authorized to pass on you any delivery costs and costs incurred in the termination of the Contract. This clause shall not apply to the virtual gift card for which the delivery shall be governed by the Use Conditions of the Gift Card and the above clause 9.
11. RISK AND TITLE
The Products will be at your risk from the time of delivery. Ownership of the products will only pass to you when we receive full payment of all sums due in respect of the products, including delivery charges, or upon delivery (as defined in Clause 9), whichever is the later.
12. PRICE AND PAYMENT
The price of any products will be as stipulated on our site from time to time, except in cases of obvious error. While we try to ensure that all prices on the website are accurate, errors may occur. If we discover an error in the price of products you have ordered, we will inform you as soon as possible and give you the option of reconfirming the order at the correct price or cancelling it. If we are unable to contact you, the order will be treated as cancelled and if you have already paid for the products you will receive a full refund. We are under no obligation to provide the product(s) to you at the incorrect (lower) price (even after we have sent you a Order Confirmation) if the pricing error is obvious and unmistakeable and could have reasonably been recognised by you as incorrect price. The prices on the website include VAT but exclude delivery costs, which will be added to the total amount due as set out in our Delivery Costs Guide. Prices are liable to change at any time, but (other than as set out above) changes will not affect orders in respect of which we have already sent you an Order Confirmation. Once you have finished shopping all the items you wish to purchase are added to your basket, your next step will be to go the checkout process and make payment. To do this:
1. Click the "Basket" button at the top of the page.
2. Click on "Go to Basket".
3. Click on "Process order".
4. Fill in or check your contact details, the details of your order, the delivery address and the invoicing address.
5. Enter the details of your card.
6. Click "Authorise payment"
Payment can be made by Visa, Mastercard and American Express card. To minimise the possibility of unauthorised access, your credit card details will be encrypted. Once we receive your order, we will request a pre-authorization on your card to ensure there are sufficient funds available to complete the transaction. The charge will be made the moment we confirm the order. By clicking "Authorise payment" you are confirming that the credit card is yours or that you are the legitimate holder of the gift card or the credit voucher card. Credit cards are subject to validation checks and authorisation by your card issuer but if your card issuer fails to authorise payment to us, we will not be liable for any delay or non-delivery and may not be able to form a Contract with you.

Pursuant to the prevailing rules and regulations in force, all purchases done through the web site are subject to the Value Added Tax (VAT).
14. RETURNS POLICY
14.1 Statutory right to cancel your purchase
Under applicable regulations, if you are contracting as a consumer, you may cancel the Contract (except where the subject matter of such Contract is any of the products in respect of which the cancellation right is exempted as listed in Clause 14.3 below) at any time within seven working days of the date of delivery. In such case, you will be reimbursed the price paid for such products. Direct costs incurred in the return of such products will be borne by you. You may provide evidence of the right of cancellation through any of the means provided by law, and in any event, such right shall be deemed to have been validly exercised by sending the returns form that we provide you with (hereinafter, the "Returns Form") or by returning the products. This provision does not affect your statutory rights.
14.2 Contractual right to cancel your purchase
In addition to the statutory right of cancellation of consumers and users referred to in Clause 14.1 above, we grant you a 30 day period, beginning on the date you receive the products, to proceed to any return of products (except for those referred to in Clause 14.3 below, regarding which the cancellation right is exempted). Direct costs incurred in the return of such products will be borne by you. You shall exercise your right of cancellation by sending the Returns Form we provide you with or by returning the products.
14.3 Common provisions
You may not cancel the Contract whose subject matter is the supply of any of the following products:
1. Customised items.
2. Items; whose original wrapping has been removed.
If you wish to cancel the Contract within the periods specified above, you should inform us by contacting us via our web form or return the product to us at the address in the RETURNS FORM. Please send the product back to us (at your own risk) as soon as possible together with a fully completed RETURNS FORM that you will receive on delivery with the product, to the address indicated in the form. You will be responsible for the cost of returning the product to us in this manner and present with your returned product a fully completed RETURNS FORM (that you will have received on delivery of the product). Where possible, please use or include with the product being returned, all original boxes, instructions/documents and wrappings. We will process your refund as soon as possible (and in any case, within 30 days of the day that you have given us notice of cancellation). We will always refund any money received from you to the credit card originally used by you to pay for your purchase. However, you will be responsible for the cost and risk of returning the item to us, as outlined above. You should be aware that you are under a statutory duty to take reasonable care of the products whilst they are in your possession. If you fail to exercise such reasonable care, we may, depending on the circumstances, have a right of action against you for breach of statutory duty. Failure to exercise such reasonable care may, depending on the circumstances, be demonstrated by your failure to include all of the product´s instructions, documents and wrappings when returning the product, the product being damaged.
14.4 Returns of defective products
In circumstances where you consider that the product does not conform with the Contract at the time of delivery, you should promptly contact us via our web form with details of the product and its damage. You should return the product to us at the address indicated on the RETURNS FORM that you will receive with the product on delivery. We will fully examine the returned product and will notify you of your right to a replacement or refund (if any) via e-mail within a reasonable period of time. We will usually process the refund or replacement as soon as possible and, in any case, within 30 days of the day we confirmed to you via e-mail that you are entitled to a refund or replacement of the defective product. Products returned by you because of a defect, where one exists, 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. We will always refund any money received from you to the credit card originally used by you to pay for your purchase. This clause does not affect your statutory rights.

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. A waiver by us of any default shall not constitute a waiver of any subsequent default arising from the Contract or the Terms. No waiver by us of any of these Terms shall be effective unless it is expressly stated to be a waiver and is communicated to you in writing in accordance with the paragraph on Notices above.
If any of these Terms 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.
