All orders placed by you are subject to our acceptance. We reserve the right at all times and at our sole discretion to refuse to accept an order for any reason and without liability to you.
Orders may only be placed by individual customers and corporations purchasing goods other than for resale. (Wholesale customers should contact us direct at the above address.)
After you have placed the order with us, we will send you an order acknowledgement by email with your order number and details of the product you have ordered. This email is only an acknowledgement of receipt and is not an acceptance of your order. The acceptance of your order and a contract of sale between us will not take place until you have been advised the said goods are available and these goods have been paid for in full including any applicable charges. No payment shall be considered to have been received until we have received payment in cleared funds.

In doing so you give us a commitment that you are authorised to use the address in question. You will also be asked to input a password.
You should not disclose or transfer your password to any other person. You must notify us immediately if you become aware of any unauthorised use of your password. Without prejudice to our rights, we may suspend your access to the website without liability to you if in our reasonable opinion such action is necessary to safeguard the website.
