2.1 The prices payable for goods that you order are as set out in our website
2.2 You may be required to pay extra for delivery and it might not be possible for us to deliver to some locations. Our delivery charges are set out in our website. If your address is in a remote location we will contact you with shipping options before your order is shipped if necessary.
2.3 Prices are set at GB Pound Sterling rates, prices in other currencies will therefore fluctuate relative to the exchange rate against the website price in GBP.
3. Right for you to cancel your contract
3.1 In accordance with the Consumer Protection (Distance Selling) Regulations 2000 “The consumer has the right to cancel within seven working days for most goods and services.

3.5 Once you have notified us that you are cancelling your contract, any sum debited to us from your original method of payment will be re-credited to your account as soon as possible and in any event within 30 days of your order PROVIDED THAT the goods in question are returned by you and received by us in the condition they were in when delivered to you. If you do not return the goods delivered to you or do not pay the costs of delivery, we shall be entitled to deduct the direct costs of recovering the goods from the amount to be re-credited to you.

For UK deliveries goods cannot be classified as missing in the post until 15 working days have passed since the day of posting. We cannot take any action during this period, but will immediately make enquiries and re-send orders if delivery hasn’t been made following the 15 working day period.
5.4 We cannot be held responsible for failed deliveries, either due to an incorrect address or unavailability of a signature on delivery. If goods are returned to us for these reasons we can re-charge for postage and handling, or deduct the cost if a refund is requested.
