2.2 In any event to you as a buyer or prospective buyer of our goods or services.

2.3 We shall accept your order by e-mail confirmation, after you have completed the checkout process on our website or if you have given your order over the phone. Automated emails do not constitute an acceptance of your offer. That is when our contract is made. Our message will also confirm the details of your purchase and tell you when we shall dispatch your order.

2.4 We may change these terms from time to time. The terms that apply to you are those posted here on Our Website on the day you order Goods.

2.5 Unfortunately, we cannot guarantee that the Goods advertised on Our Website are all available. We do attempt to show the correct quantities in stock on the product page but occasionally this may not be accurate. It is not our intention to deceive you, as our policy is to stock what we sell. Typical stock levels would be about 98%. The other 2% is for special order items and will be displayed as being a special order with a typical delivery time shown.
2.6 If we do not have all of the Goods you ordered in stock, we may offer you an alternative. If this happens you may:
2.6.1 accept the alternatives we offer;
2.6.2 cancel all or part of your order;

2.7 If in future, you buy Goods from us under any arrangement which does not involve your payment via Our Website, these terms shall continue to apply.

3.1 You agree that you have provided, and will continue to provide accurate, up to date, and complete information about yourself. We need this information to provide you with the Goods.

3.2 If you use Our Website, you are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your account and password and for preventing any person from using your computer. We will maintain the security of our servers. We do not get or keep your credit card information.

3.4 We reserve the right to refuse you access to Our Website.

4 Price and Payment

4.1 We endeavour to keep Our Website and catalogue prices updated and accurate but it is possible that the price may have increased from that published. If that happens, we will not send your order until you have confirmed that you wish to order at the new price. However, at our discretion, we may decide to absorb this cost.

8 Goods returned

8.1 Our most important task is to ensure your absolute satisfaction. We will always strive to reach that target. However, we acknowledge that mistakes are made occasionally.

8.1.2 The date, if relevant, when the fault became apparent;
8.1.3 When and how you discovered the fault;

If you send goods to us without a RMA number, we may not be able to identify sufficient details to enable us to attend to your complaint and your goods may not be processed properly.

8.4 The Goods must be returned to us as soon as any defect or fault is discovered. Any further use of the Goods after the defect or fault has become apparent will invalidate your warranty and your right to return the Goods.

It is your responsibility to prepare the returned item(s) for shipment and to make sure they are securely and properly packaged (or on a pallet if required) to protect the item(s) against transit damage or inclement weather when being picked up or being delivered. We will require you to confirm by email that the item(s) are prepared for pickup and we will then arrange the pickup.
