3.4 By using a credit/debit card to pay for your order, you warrant and confirm that the card being used is yours. All credit/debit card holders are subject to validation checks and authorisation by the card issuer. If the issuer of your card refuses to authorise payment we will not accept your order, we will not be obliged to inform you of the reason for the refusal, and we will not be liable for non-delivery. We are not responsible for your card issuer or bank charging you as a result of our processing of your credit/debit card payment in accordance with your order.
3.5 In the unlikely event that the price of an item has been incorrectly advertised on the Site, we will contact you to ask whether you wish to proceed with the order at the correct price.

Unless we have already confirmed despatch of your order, we will not be obliged to supply products at the incorrect price.
4.1 Subject to availability, we will use all reasonable endeavours to deliver the products you have ordered as soon as possible after your order is accepted by us. Delivery will normally be made within 3-8 working days if the items are in stock. We will usually deliver all products comprised in your order in one delivery, unless your order consists of multiple products, some of which are not available from stock, in which case, if all products are not in stock within 5 days of you placing your order, we will separately despatch those items that are.
4.2 Once delivered, the products ordered will become your property (provided they have been paid for in full) and your responsibility and, except in relation to products that are damaged or faulty when delivered or have been incorrectly delivered, we will not accept any liability for their loss, damage or destruction after they have been delivered.

If your order does not arrive within this period please be patient. We will not consider a courier shipment potentially lost until 10 WORKING days have passed from the shipped date. If an item is delayed, we cannot take any action until 10 working days have passed.
