If you submit an order for any item advertised for sale on this Website, this shall be taken to constitute acceptance by you of these Terms:
Purchase of products
If you wish to purchase any item for sale on this Website (the ‘Product’), you must submit our completed order form. Your order will not be accepted unless you place us in a position of being able to receive full payment for your order at the time we accept it.
If we agree to accept your order, we will confirm this by email (the “Confirmation”) and will supply the items you have ordered (the “Product”) to you in accordance with the Confirmation and with these Terms.
The sale and purchase of Products via this Website will be governed by a contract between you and us formed when you have placed an order. We have accepted your order when we have sent you Confirmation of this (the ‘Contract’). Please note, as soon as we confirm your order, it will enter our electronic system and we will be unable to prevent it being dispatched to you.
You acknowledge and agree that, in entering into a Contract, you do not rely on and have no remedy in respect of, any statement, representation, warranty or understanding (whether negligently or innocently made) of any person (whether party to the Contract or not) which is not expressly set out or referred to in the Contract. This is not intended to limit or exclude liability for fraud on our part.
You acknowledge that:
(a) all information and specifications relating to the Products and any material produced by us are approximate only; and
