Orders are submitted via the Website in the following way for retail customers (wholesale customer details can be found in the terms and conditions specific to the wholesale website):
Once you are ready to make a purchase, click on ‘add to bag’ to add the Product you wish to purchase to your bag. Then proceed to checkout to purchase via our secure servers to complete your Order.
All Products are displayed on our Website as an invitation to treat, which means they are not provided as an offer by us for you to accept. A binding legal contract will only be formed if and when we accept your Order in accordance with the process set out below.
You will have the option to create an account with us using your email address and you will also be asked to create a password. You must keep this password confidential and must not disclose it or share it with anyone. We hold a secure password file to enable you to request a reminder, should it be forgotten on future transactions.
If you have already registered with us you may enter your sign in details to access your account.
You may proceed as a ‘guest’ if you do not wish to have an account or do not wish to register with us.
You will then be asked to input your billing and delivery addresses. The billing address that you enter must be the address that the card statement is sent to, however you can use a different delivery address.
You must then input your payment details and agree to the website terms and conditions by ticking the option prior to completing your order. By clicking on the “Complete Order” button you consent to the Terms of Sale.
Once you have completed compiling your Order, you will be asked to confirm that it is correct. If it is not correct, you can revisit your Order and correct the mistakes before confirming and submitting your Order to us by clicking on the “Complete Order” button.

We will then send you a confirmatory email to acknowledge that we have received your Order. This is sent out automatically by us to the email address you use to place the Order.
After sending you this email we will check to make sure we are able to fulfil your Order. If and when we are able to do so, you will then receive a second email from us confirming and accepting your Order, confirming dispatch of the Product(s) to the delivery address you have requested and giving you a link for you to track your Order. This is sent out automatically by us to the email address you use to place the Order. At this point we will process the payment details you have given to us to take payment for your Order.
We will also notify you if any Products you have ordered are not available and you will not be charged for any missing items.
The Dispatch Confirmation and all subsequent emails relating to your Order will contain an identifying number “Order Number” for your Order. You should make a note of your Order Number because we may ask for it in any subsequent communication, we may have with you as it will help us to identify and therefore assist you quickly and easily.
You should check both emails for accuracy and let us know immediately if there are any errors. Your Order will be accepted by us when we send the Dispatch Confirmation to you confirming and accepting your Order and dispatch of the Product(s) and at this point, the contract between us (“Contract”) is formed. Ownership of the Product(s) will pass to you on delivery.
When you submit your order, you are offering to buy the Product(s) at the price set out in the order.
If you discover you have made a mistake with your order, please contact us immediately. Please do this before we send the Dispatch Confirmation confirming your Order. We are unable to rectify mistakes after this time, although you still have the right to cancel described below.

Your Right to Cancel
If you are a consumer (i.e. you are not purchasing either wholly or in part for your business or you are not a business) you have the right, in addition to your other rights, to cancel the Contract within ninety (90) days without giving any reason (other than for personalised or other products which we have specified as non-returnable) and receive a refund from us, including any delivery charges you paid when ordering the Product. You must inform us by way of a clear statement in writing by email at email@example.com if you wish to cancel. The cancellation period will expire after ninety (90) days, starting on the day after the Product(s) are delivered to you.
To meet the cancellation deadline, it is sufficient for you to send your communication concerning your exercise of the right to cancel before the cancellation period has expired.
If you choose to cancel, then you must return the Product(s) to us at your cost and risk and we advise you to ensure the Product(s) are adequately insured during the return journey.

You must ensure that you take reasonable care of the Product(s) including the original packaging supplied with the Product(s) if any.

As set out in the “Damaged or Defective Product(s)” section above, you have a legal obligation to take reasonable care of the Products while they are in your possession. If you fail to comply with this obligation, we may make a deduction from the reimbursement for loss in value of any Products supplied, if the loss is the result of unnecessary handling by you.
If you have received the Products, you shall send back the Products without undue delay and in any event, not later than ninety (90) days from the day on which you communicate your cancellation from this contract to us. If you have not returned the Product(s) within ninety (90) days of cancellation or when requested by us to do so, whichever occurs first, we can collect the Product(s) from you at your cost.
Gift recipients are entitled to a non-refundable merchandise exchange or may request that a refund is made to the purchaser of the Product(s).
