3 Product descriptions
3.1 We attempt to be as accurate as possible when describing our products on the Website; however, to the extent permitted by applicable law, we do not give any guarantee, conditions or warrant that the product descriptions, colours, sizes, prices or other content available on the Website are accurate, complete, reliable, current or error-free.
3.2 You acknowledge that, as between you and us, we own all present and future copyright, registered and unregistered trademarks, design rights, unregistered designs, database rights and all other present and future intellectual property rights and rights in the nature of intellectual property rights existing in or in relation to the Products.
4 How to order Products
4.1 When you have found a Product on the Website that you would like to buy, please click on the button labelled "add to bag". This will add your Product to a virtual "shopping bag". You can then proceed to pay for the Products in your virtual shopping bag by clicking on the button labelled "proceed to checkout". Alternatively, you can continue browsing the Website and add additional Products to your virtual shopping bag.
4.2 You can see what Products are in your virtual shopping bag at any time by hovering over the blue tab in the top right hand corner of the webpage labelled "bag" and clicking on the button labelled "view your shopping bag". If you wish to remove a Product from your virtual shopping bag, simply click on the button labelled “remove” next to the relevant Product. You can pay for the Products in your virtual shopping bag at any time by clicking the button labelled “proceed to checkout”.
4.4 After placing an order, you will receive an e-mail from us acknowledging that we have received your order. Please note that this does not mean that your order has been accepted. Your order represents an offer to us to purchase that Product, which we may choose to accept or refuse – it does not represent a legally binding contract.
4.5 Whilst we will do our best to fulfil your order (once it is accepted), we cannot guarantee to do so (for example, where we are out of stock, where your card issuer refuses to authorise your payment or where Products have been incorrectly priced on our Website). If we accept your offer, we will confirm such acceptance to you by sending you an email that confirms that the Product has been dispatched ("Delivery Confirmation"). The contract between us ("Contract") will only be formed when we send you the Delivery Confirmation.
4.6 The Contract will relate only to those Products as confirmed in the Delivery 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 Delivery Confirmation.
4.7 The Contract will be concluded in English.
4.8 You can view details of orders placed and their status by clicking on the button labelled "order status" at the top of the webpage.
4.9 All promotional offers available from time to time on the site are limited to the United Kingdom and are subject both to stock availability and the offer time period stated. Current promotions are not redeemable on (i) prior orders, (ii) in store, or (iii) through partner websites.
4.10 Samples are subject to availability and will only be sent to addresses in the United Kingdom (excluding the channel islands). Any samples we provide for you to test are for your personal use only.
5 Price and Payment
5.1 The price of the Products will be as quoted on our site from time to time except in cases of obvious error. Prices shown on the Website do not include delivery, packaging or other charges, which will be added to any order you place.
5.2 Delivery charges are as set out in our delivery information.
5.3 All prices shown on the Website are in pounds sterling and inclusive of Value Added Tax (“VAT”) at the relevant rate. If the rate of VAT changes between the date of your order and the date of delivery, we will adjust the VAT you pay, unless you have already paid for the Products in full before the change in VAT takes effect.
5.4 Our site contains a large number of Products and it is always possible that, despite our best efforts, some of the Products listed on our site may be incorrectly priced. We will normally verify prices as part of our dispatch procedures so that, where a Product's correct price is less than our stated price, we will normally charge the lower amount when dispatching the Product to you. However, if the pricing error is obvious and unmistakeable and could have reasonably been recognised by you as an error, we do not have to provide the Products to you at the incorrect (lower) price. If a Product's correct price is higher than the price stated on our site, we will normally, at our discretion, either contact you for instructions before dispatching the Product, or reject your order and notify you that we are rejecting it.
5.5 All Products will remain our property until we have received payment in full for those Products (including delivery charges).
5.6 All card payments are subject to authorisation by your card issuer. If your payment is not authorised (at any time) we will cancel your order and notify you in writing (which may include e-mail) that we have done so.
5.7 If we cannot supply you with the Products that you have ordered, we will cancel your order and inform you of this as soon as reasonably possible. We will give you a full refund where you have already paid for the Products.
6 Delivery of the Products
6.1 Your order will be fulfilled by the delivery date set out in our delivery guide. Please note the dates set out in this guide are indicative only.
6.2 Delivery will be to the address specified in your order. If no one is available at the address at the time of delivery, the Products will be retained by the delivery company for a reasonable period of time and then returned to us. If Products are returned to us by the delivery company, we will issue you with a refund for the Products but reserve the right to retain any costs incurred in arranging for the delivery and return of the Product.
6.3 Please note that unfortunately we are not able to deliver any Products to a P.O. Box.
6.4 All risk in the Products you order (including risk of loss and/or damage to the Products) shall pass to you when they are delivered to the delivery address specified in your order.
6.5 We shall be under no liability for any delay or failure to deliver products if the delay or failure is wholly or partly caused by a third party or circumstances beyond our control.
7 Return Policy
7.1 We operate a "no questions asked" returns policy provided that you return the Products to us within 28 days beginning on the day after you receive the Products. You must take reasonable care of the Products, do not use them and return any Products received in their original and unopened packaging and condition with the relevant order reference or delivery note.

8 Gifts and Messages
8.1 When you request a Product to be sent as a gift to a third party you give your permission that your name and address may be provided to such third party.
8.2 From time to time we may offer you the opportunity to include a message with a delivery.

You agree that your message will not contain anything offensive, abusive, harassing, obscene, blasphemous, racist, defamatory, scandalous, vulgar, indecent, threatening, unlawful or otherwise improper.

11.3 Our performance under any Contract is deemed to be suspended for the period that the Force Majeure Event continues, and we will have an extension of time for performance for the duration of that period. We will use our reasonable endeavours to find a solution by which our obligations under the Contract may be performed despite the Force Majeure Event.
12 Written Communications
Applicable laws require that some of the information or communications we send to you should be in writing. When using the Website, you accept that communication with us will be mainly electronic. We will contact you by e-mail or provide you with information by posting notices on our website.
