In instances where goods are despatched in multiple deliveries, i.e where the lead-times on fulfilment differ, the goods form a Part Order. If an order is being delivered in multiple parts it will be noted on your despatch confirmation order form.
All goods and services are subject to availability.

In the instance where a product is listed with an incorrect price due to a typographical error or there is an error in pricing from our suppliers, taxes or duty changes, we reserve the right to refuse or cancel any orders listed at the incorrect price whether or not the order has been confirmed. If we discover an error in the price of the goods that you have ordered from us we will notify you as soon as possible and give you the option of reconfirming your order at the correct price or of cancelling it. If we are unable to contact you then we will treat the order as cancelled and issue a full-refund back to the original source of the payment.

Credit/Debit Card Security
Credit/debit card details are encrypted by either PayPal or Nochex to minimize the possibility of unauthorized usage or disclosure.

These standards mean that you cannot place an order through an unsecured connection. Your complete credit card number is transferred to this secure machine across a proprietary one-way interface. This computer is not accessible by network or modem and the number is not stored anywhere else.
At times a notice may appear on your screen alerting you that you are moving from a secure server to one that is not secure. The secure part of the website is where your credit card and personal details are taken and is to protect your data.
Age of Consent
When placing an order you are declaring that you are the appropriate legal age to purchase the item and that the person accepting delivery of your order is aged 18 or over. If it is found that you are not legally entitled to order certain goods, we reserve the right to terminate all account facilities immediately, without notice, and we will not be obliged to complete the order.
