6.1.1 Images of Goods are for illustrative purposes only. There may be slight variations in colour between the image of a product and the actual product sold due to differences in computer displays and lighting conditions;
6.1.2 Images and/or descriptions of packaging are for illustrative purposes only, the actual packaging of Goods may vary.
6.2 Please note that sub-Clause 6.1 does not exclude Our responsibility for mistakes due to negligence on Our part and refers only to minor variations of the correct Goods, not to different Goods altogether. Please refer to Clause 10 if you receive incorrect Goods (i.e. Goods that are not as described).
6.3 Where appropriate, you may be required to select the required size, model, or colour of the Goods that you are purchasing.
6.4 We cannot guarantee that Goods will always be available. Stock indications are provided on Our Site, however such indications may be inaccurate due to order processing schedules.

6.6 All prices are checked by Us before We accept your Order. In the unlikely event that We have shown incorrect pricing information, including any change in the rate of VAT, We will contact you in writing or by email to inform you of the mistake. If the correct price is lower than that shown when you made your Order, we will simply charge you the lower amount and continue processing your Order. If the correct price is higher, We will give you the option to purchase the Goods at the correct price or to cancel your Order (or the affected part of it).

7.2 If, during the order process, you provide Us with incorrect or incomplete information, please contact Us as soon as possible. If We are unable to process your Order due to incorrect or incomplete information, We will contact you to ask to correct it. If you do not give us the accurate or complete information within a reasonable time of Our request, We will cancel your Order and treat the Contract as being at an end. If We incur any costs as a result of your incorrect or incomplete information, We may pass those costs on to you.
7.3 No part of Our Site constitutes a contractual offer capable of acceptance. Your Order constitutes a contractual offer that We may, at Our sole discretion, accept. Our acknowledgement of receipt of your Order does not mean that we have accepted it. Our acceptance is indicated by Us sending you an Order Confirmation by email. Only once We have sent you an Order Confirmation will there be a legally binding Contract between Us and you.
7.4 Order Confirmations shall contain the following information:
7.4.1 Your Order Number;
7.4.2 Confirmation of the Goods ordered including full details of the main characteristics of those Goods;
7.4.3 Fully itemised pricing for the Goods ordered including, where appropriate, taxes, delivery and other additional charges;
7.5 In the unlikely event that We do not accept or cannot fulfil your Order for any reason, We will explain why in writing. No payment will be taken under normal circumstances. If We have taken payment any such sums will be refunded to you as soon as possible and in any event within 3 working days.

You should note that some items may require a signature to confirm successful delivery..

If we cannot contact you or arrange redelivery or collection, We will treat the Contract as cancelled and recover the Goods. If this happens, you will be refunded the purchase price of the Goods themselves, but not the cost of delivery. We may also bill you for any reasonable additional cost that we incur in recovering the Goods.
9.3 Delivery shall be deemed complete and the responsibility for the Goods will pass to you once We have delivered the Goods to the address including, where relevant, any alternative address you have provided.
9.4 Ownership of the Goods passes to you once we have received payment in full of all sums due (including any applicable delivery charges).
