4.1 Products and Pricing. We are under a legal obligation to supply goods that conform with our contract with you, however please be aware that the images of the products on our site ("Products") are for illustrative purposes only. Although we have made every effort to display the colours accurately, we cannot guarantee that your computer's display of the colours accurately reflects the colour of the Products. The Products you receive may vary slightly from those images. All dimensions and measurements indicated on our site have a 2% tolerance. The packaging of the Products may also vary from that shown on images on our site. Please note that all Products are subject to availability. We will inform you by e-mail as soon as possible if the Product you have ordered is not available and we will not process your order if made.
Our site contains a large number of Products. It is always possible that, despite our reasonable efforts, some of the Products on our site may be incorrectly priced. If we discover an error in the price of the Products you have ordered before we send the Dispatch Confirmation (in accordance with clause 4.3), we will inform you of this error and give you the option of continuing to purchase the Product at the correct price or cancelling your order. We will not process your order until we have your instructions. If we are unable to contact you using the contact details you provided during the order process, we will either treat the order as cancelled and notify you in writing or may (at our discretion) process the order on the basis of the incorrect price where this is lower than the correct price.
Please note that even after we have sent the Dispatch Confirmation (as defined below), if a pricing error was obvious and unmistakeable and could have reasonably been recognised by you as a mispricing, we do not have to provide the Products to you at an incorrect, lower price.
4.2 Payment Terms. Please note that if you buy a Product, payment will be in advance and will be processed when you submit your order. Subject to clauses 4.1 and 4.3, for each Product you order on our site, you agree to pay the price applicable for the Product as at the time you submitted your order ("Product Price") and the delivery fees for the delivery service you select ("Delivery Fees").

Please take the time to read and check your order at each stage of the order process. After you place an order, you will receive an e-mail from us acknowledging that we have received your order. However, please note that this does not mean that your order has been accepted. We will confirm our acceptance to you in a separate e-mail ("Dispatch Confirmation"), and a contract between us will only be formed when we send you the Dispatch Confirmation. If we are unable to supply you with a Product, for example because that Product is not in stock or no longer available, or if your order of that Product is cancelled in accordance with clause 4.1 because of an error in the price on our site, we will inform you of this by e-mail. In this case, if you have already paid for the Products, then we will issue, within 5 to 7 working days, a credit to your credit card, debit card or PayPal account (as appropriate) in the amount charged for the withdrawn order or withdrawn portion of the order (if your card or account has already been charged). If you have not yet paid, we will not charge your credit card, debit card or PayPal account.
