We have taken every care in the preparation of the content of this website, in particular, to ensure that prices quoted are correct at time of publishing and that all products have been fairly described and portrayed. We will try to resolve any errors on the website as soon as we are reasonably able to, and if we reasonably think that a mistake on our part has affected your order, we will do our best to let you know. We cannot however be held liable to you for errors contained on the website given that we take these steps. International delivery charges are calculated on a per carton rate and are an estimate only. All items are also subject to availability. We will inform you as soon as possible when the out of stock goods you have ordered are back in stock and have been shipped to you.
After you've placed an order through our website you will receive an order acknowledgment from us. This acknowledgment, simply acknowledges that your order has been received and is not an acceptance of that order. Once the payment is accepted, a third party system runs some further security checks. Depending on the results of these checks, the order may be cancelled or put on hold and further details may be requested from you. This is to protect you and us from any fraudulent activity. When we have received payment in full for each relevant order placed by you, together with the cost of any associated delivery charges, we will issue you with a despatch email, and only at this time is your order accepted by us.
We reserve the right to refuse orders prior to acceptance.
If you are placing an order outside of the UK, please be aware we do not accept international orders at the moment. If your order is placed through our system, we will directly contact you with further details.

Delivery, Returns, and Refund:
When you cancel an order or part of an order, the goods must be returned in the original unopened packaging and in the condition that the goods were purchased in. We offer free postal returns on all mainland UK purchases within 30 days of purchase when any goods purchased are returned in their original packaging and in the condition that the goods were purchased in. In order to take advantage of this service, please follow the instructions on the delivery note enclosed with your goods. So unless your product is faulty, we simply ask that your purchase is unused and unwashed and in its original packaging. You are responsible for the goods prior to return and for insuring or bearing the cost of the items until they are received by us.
Following delivery, we ask you to raise any queries or inform us of any missing or damaged items within 48 hours or 2 working days. After this period we may not be able to deal with any claims for missing or damaged items, however, this is handled case-by-case. We operate on a fair and flexible basis and will always look into any query in order to help our customers. The earlier you raise a return query or inform us, the sooner your returns will be received by us and your refund will be processed.
When receiving returned goods that have, in our opinion, been used, altered, damaged or are in any other way unfit for resale or return to the manufacturer for a credit we will withhold any monies due, advise you in writing or by email within 14 days of any such intention and describe the nature of any such refusal to refund. During any period thereafter the goods will be retained by us for a period of no longer than 30 days and be available for inspection by any interested parties, experts, or witnesses if required. Thereafter, unless the subject of further legal claims, the goods will either be destroyed or at their request returned to the original purchaser, at their expense, following the signing of a release form as provided by us.
If your goods are found to be faulty within 30 days of purchase, you are able to receive a full refund, pending inspection if required. However, we cannot guarantee we can accept or process refunds after 30 days of purchase. Nothing contained within these terms and conditions affects your statutory rights.
