These are the steps you need to take to conclude a Contract with us:
This Website contains information about our Goods which you will need to know before you place your Order including descriptions of our Goods, current prices including VAT, delivery and returns policies. The information about the Goods on our Website constitutes an "invitation to treat" and is not a Contractual offer from us which you may accept. This means that we reserve the right to correct any errors in that information without liability to you. It also means that in no circumstances will we be Contractually bound to supply you with Goods on the basis of any incorrect information, even if that information is repeated in your Order.
You can select any Goods you wish to purchase by clicking on the "Add to basket" or "Order" button. You will be taken to your shopping basket whenever you add a new item, but you can also view the contents of your shopping basket by clicking on the "view basket" link. The shopping basket screen lists your current selection of Goods with description, price and current subtotal. You can edit the contents of your basket and remove any input errors by removing Goods or changing quantities.
To purchase the Goods or Samples in your basket and proceed with your Order using our secure online purchasing facility, click on the "Checkout" button on the shopping basket screen. You will then be given the option to enter your email address and password, if you are an existing user of the site. You will then be transferred to our secure server provider to complete your Order. If you choose to order a Sample, you will not be transfered to a secure provider, as the service is provided free of charge.
You will be asked to provide certain information we need to enable us to process your Order such as your preferred delivery address and payment details. It is your responsibility to provide us with sufficient information to process you Order.
We will acknowledge receipt of your Order by email. This is not our acceptance of your Order, but confirmation that it has been received.
When you place an order that includes Samples, we pass on to our suppliers any required personal information (such as e-mail address, name, delivery address, phone number) you provided to us during the checkout process and they will dispatch the samples directly to you.
You may not assume we have accepted your Order until we send you an acceptance by email. Only if and when you receive our acceptance will we have a binding Contract between us.
You may receive acknowledgement from our payment processor advising you whether or not your credit or debit card payment has been authorised. This acknowledgement relates to your payment only and is not our acceptance of your Order.
We will be entitled to refuse to accept your Order if in our sole discretion we consider it necessary. In particular we must receive payment of the whole of the price for the Goods that you Order before your Order can be accepted. If we refuse your Order we will let you know as soon as we can. If we accept your Order we will inform you without undue delay.
Once we have entered into a Contract with you we shall supply you with the items specified in your Order in accordance with the terms of the Contract.
We can only conclude the Contract with you in English and not in any other language.
We may cancel the Contract between us if:
In the unlikely event that the Goods we deliver are not what you Ordered or are damaged / defective, or the delivery is of an incorrect quantity/Goods; you must notify us within 7 days of receiving it.

We make no representation and accept no liability in respect of the export or import of the Goods you purchase.

If a court does decide we are liable to pay you compensation, that compensation will be limited to the amount paid by you for the Goods in question.
Please note that nothing in this section of these terms and conditions (or in any other section) is intended to limit any rights you might have as a consumer or other statutory rights that may not be excluded by law, nor in any way to exclude or limit our liability to you for any death or personal injury resulting from our negligence of for fraudulent misrepresentation.
