    1. Our acceptance of your order will take place when we email you to accept it, at which point a contract will come into existence between you and us.  Acceptance of the order is subject to availability of stock.

    2. If we are unable to accept your order, we will inform you of this and will not charge you for the product, or, if payment has already been made a full refund will be given in respect of the unavailable products. This might be because the product is out of stock due to unexpected demand or otherwise, because of unexpected limits on our resources which we could not reasonably plan for, because we have identified an error in the price or description of the product or because we are unable to meet a delivery deadline you have specified. 

    3. We will assign an order number to your order and tell you what it is when we accept your order. Please tell us the order number whenever you contact us about your order.


    1. Products may vary slightly from their pictures.  The images of the products on our website are for illustrative purposes only.  Although we have made every effort to display the colours accurately, we cannot guarantee that a device's display of the colours accurately reflects the colour of the products.  Your product may vary slightly from those images. 

    2. The packaging of the product may vary from that shown in images on our website.

      1. to reflect changes in relevant laws and regulatory requirements; and 

      2. to implement minor technical adjustments and improvements.
