If we have to contact you we will do so by telephone, email or post by using the telephone number, email address or postal address you provided to us in your order.
2.3 "Writing" includes emails. When we use the words "writing" or "written" in these terms, this includes emails.
3. Contract restrictions
3.1 Consumers only
Our products are only intended for use by consumers (that means people who want to buy our products for their personal use and not for any business purposes). We reserve the right to reject or cancel your order if we reasonably think that you are buying our products for business purposes but we will attempt to contact you (using the contact details you have provided) to discuss this before cancelling your order.
3.2 Restrictions on delivery areas
Please note that we can only deliver to addresses in mainland UK. Please see paragraph 9 for further information on delivery arrangements.
3.3 Confirmation of personal status
By placing an order with us through our website, you are confirming to us that you are a consumer, that you are not purchasing our products for any business purposes and that you are at least 18 years old.
4. Our contract with you
4.1 Contract terms
We revise our terms and conditions from time to time. You and your order will be subject to the terms and conditions in force at the time that you submit your order a contract is formed between you and us (as set out in paragraph 4.2).
4.2 How we will accept your order
Each time you place an order and we accept it, a new contract is created between you and us. We will provide confirmation of receipt of your order by email which will be sent to the address you provided once we have received your order, but please note that this confirmation of receipt is not our acceptance of your order. Our acceptance of your order will only take place when you receive confirmation of our acceptance of your order in an email which will be sent to the address you provided, at which point a contract will come into existence between you and us.
4.3 If we cannot accept your order
If we are unable to accept your order, we will inform you of this by email and will not charge you for the relevant product. This might be because the product is out of stock, 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.
4.4 Your order number
We will assign an order number to each order you place via our website and will tell you what it is when we accept your order. It will help us if you can tell us the order number whenever you contact us about your order.
4.5 We only sell to the UK
Our website is solely for the sale of our products in mainland UK. Unfortunately, we do not accept orders from addresses outside mainland UK.
5. Our products
5.1 Product images
The images of our products on our website are for illustrative purposes only. Although we have made every effort to display images accurately, we cannot guarantee that a device's display accurately reflects the colour of the products. Your product may vary slightly from those images. This will not affect the price of the products you ordered unless paragraph 6.3 applies. The packaging of our products may vary from that shown in images on our website.
5.2 Product information
The product information contained on our website has been published in good faith and we will do our best to ensure that it is accurate. However, it may occasionally be incorrect, incomplete or out of date due to human error or circumstances beyond our control. Where information is incorrect due to an error or circumstances beyond our control, we reserve the right not to accept your order for the affected products, or if your order has already been accepted, not to supply the affected products to you. We will notify you if this is the case and will not charge you for the product.
6. Price and payment
6.1 Where to find the price for the product
The price of the product (which includes VAT) will be the price indicated on the order pages when you placed your order. We take all reasonable care to ensure that the price of the product advised to you is correct. However please see paragraph 6.3 for what happens if we discover an error in the price of the product you order.
6.2 We will pass on changes in the rate of VAT
If the rate of VAT changes between your order date and the date we supply the product, we will adjust the rate of VAT that you pay, unless you have already paid for the product in full (i.e. including VAT) before the change in the rate of VAT takes effect.
6.3 What happens if we get the price wrong
It is always possible that, despite our best efforts, some of the products we sell may be incorrectly priced. We will normally check prices before accepting your order so that, where the product's correct price at your order date is less than our stated price at your order date, we will charge the lower amount. If the product's correct price at your order date is higher than the price stated to you, we will contact you for your instructions before we accept and process your order. If we accept and process your order where a pricing error is obvious and unmistakeable and could reasonably have been recognised by you as an error, we may end the contract, refund you any sums you have paid and require the return of any goods provided to you.
6.4 When you must pay and how you must pay
You must pay for the products before we dispatch them. We accept payment by PayPal.
6.5 What to do if you think the order price is wrong
If you think the order price is wrong, please contact us via email at firstname.lastname@example.org promptly to let us know and we will not charge you interest until we have resolved the issue.
7. Your rights to make changes
If you wish to make a change to the product you have ordered, please contact us. We will let you know whether the change is possible. If the change is possible, we will let you know about any changes to the price of the products, the timing of delivery or anything else which would be necessary as a result of your requested change and ask you to confirm whether you wish to go ahead with the change. If we cannot make the change or the consequences of making the change are unacceptable to you, you may want to end the contract (see paragraph 10, Your rights to end the contract).
8. Our rights to make changes
8.1 Changes to the products
We may change the products:
8.1.1 to reflect changes in relevant laws and regulatory requirements;

8.1.3 in response to a product recall.
If these changes will affect your use of the product, full details will be provided at the time.

9.3 We are not responsible for delays outside our control
If our supply of the products is delayed by an event outside our control of which we are aware, we will contact you as soon as possible to let you know and we will take steps to minimise the effect of the delay. Provided we do this, we will not be liable for delays caused by the event, but if there is a risk of substantial delay you may contact us to end the contract and receive a refund for any products you have paid for but not received.
9.4 Ending the contract for late delivery
If we fail to deliver the goods by the agreed date or within 30 days of accepting your order, whichever the longer, you may choose to treat the contract as at an end and cancel your order for any of the goods or reject goods that have been delivered. If you wish, you can reject or cancel the order for some of those goods (not all of them), unless splitting them up would significantly reduce their value. After that, we will refund any sums you have paid to us for the cancelled goods and their delivery. If the goods have been delivered to you, you must either return them in person or arrange for them to be returned to us. We will pay the costs of postage or collection. Please contact us on email@example.com to make arrangements.
9.5 When you become responsible for the goods
A product that is goods will be your responsibility from the time we deliver those goods to the address you gave us.
9.6 When you own goods
You own a product that is goods once we have received payment in full.

10.1.2 if you want to end the contract because of something we have done or have told you we are going to do, see paragraph 10.2;
10.1.3 if you have just changed your mind about the product, see paragraph 10.3. You may be able to get a refund if you are within the cooling-off period, but this may be subject to deductions and you will have to pay the costs of return of any goods;
