Your order represents an offer to purchase products from us. By completing and submitting an online order form you are making an offer to purchase products in accordance with these terms and conditions which, if accepted, will result in a binding contract between you and us. Note that the Acknowledgement Email is not acceptance by us of your offer to purchase goods.

Your offer to purchase products will only be accepted by us when we send an email to you advising that your order has been accepted and despatched (an "Order Confirmation"). Only at this stage is a binding contract created. Until this point you may vary or cancel your order.
5. We reserve the right to refuse any order prior to issue of an Order Confirmation.
