These Terms and the Data Protection Policies may be amended. It is your responsibility to regularly read through them, as the Terms and the Data Protection Policies in force at the time that you use this website or at the time of the formation of the Contract (as defined below) will be the applicable ones.
By purchasing any item from this website, you enter into a contract with us on these terms.

Our Details

Your Details and your visits to this Site
The information or personal details that you provide us with will be processed pursuant to the Data Protection Policies. By using this website you are consenting to the processing of such information and details and you represent that the whole information or details you have provided us with are true and accurate.

Use of our Website
By using this website "Site" and/or by placing any order through it, you undertake:
(a) To use the website exclusively to make legitimate enquiries or orders.
(b) Not to make any speculative, false or fraudulent orders. If we are reasonably of the opinion that such an order has been made, we will be entitled to cancel the order and inform the relevant authorities.
(c) To provide correct and accurate e-mail, postal and/or other contact details to us and acknowledge that we may use these details to contact you in the event that this should prove necessary (see our Data Protection Policies). If you do not give us all of the information that we need, we may not be able to complete your order.
By placing an order through this website, you represent and warrant that you are at least 18 years old and are legally capable of entering into binding contracts.

How the Contract is formed
The information set out in the Terms and the detail contained on this website do not constitute an offer for sale, but rather an invitation to treat. No contract in respect of any items will exist between us and you until your order has been expressly accepted by us, whether or not funds have been deducted from your account. If we do not accept your offer and funds have already been deducted from your account, these will be fully refunded. To place an order, you must follow the online shopping process and click on "Authorise payment" to submit the order. After this, you will receive an email from us confirming receipt of your order (the "Order Confirmation"). Please note that this does not mean that your order has been accepted. Your order constitutes your offer to us to buy one or more items from us. All orders are subject to acceptance by us, and we will confirm this acceptance to you by sending you an email that confirms that the item is being sent (the "Shipping Confirmation"). The contract for the purchase of an item between us (the "Contract") will only be formed when we send you the Shipping Confirmation. The Contract will relate only to those items for which we have confirmed dispatch in the Shipping Confirmation. We will not be obliged to supply any other items which may have been part of your order, until the dispatch of those items has been confirmed in a separate Shipping Confirmation.

Intellectual Property
You acknowledge and agree that all copyright, trademarks and all other intellectual property rights in all material or content supplied as part of this website will remain at all times vested in us or our licensors. You are permitted to use this material only as expressly authorised by us or our licensors. This does not prevent you using this website to the extent necessary to make a copy of any order or Contract details.


Shipping policy

 How long is the order processing period?

Order processing times are between 1-2 business days after the day you place your order. Most packages are prepared within 48 hours, but if our warehouse is exceptionally backed up, processing times may go up to 4 business days following the day you placed your order. If your order has been processed for more than four business days, please contact us, and we'll help you.

I received a damaged item. What do I do?

We apologise that your shipment didn't arrive in perfect condition! Please Contact Us with your name and order number for further assistance.

Can I edit my shipping address after my order has been placed?

Once an order is placed, our warehouse staff can pack and ship out your order, so it's not always possible to process address change requests. If you notice an error, please email us ASAP with your name and order number so we can try to correct your package before it departs. There's no guarantee we can make it, especially once it leaves our warehouse, but we'll do everything we can!

Pick Up in Store

Once your "Pick Up in Store" order has been prepared, we will inform you that it is ready to be picked up. You can pick up the order either in person (by presenting the order number and proof of identity) or appoint someone else to pick up the order on your behalf. In such cases, the appointed person must present the order number and proof of his or her identity.

Unable to deliver

If after 15 days from the date your order is available for delivery, the order could not be delivered or was not picked up for reasons not caused by us, we will assume that you wish to cancel the Contract and will be deemed terminated. As a result of the termination of the Contract, we will return to you all payments received from you, excluding delivery charges, within 30 days of the date on which this Contract has been terminated.
