Our contract

All orders are subject to acceptance by us and availability of the requested item(s).

After placing an order, you will receive an email from us acknowledging that we have received your order. It will state what the item(s) you have ordered are, the cost (including VAT and postage and packaging) and delivery and invoice details. If your order has been unsuccessful, you will be made aware of the reason why and possible explanations – this acknowledgment email does not mean that your order will have been accepted.

On orders for physical product sold from our 'Shop' we will send you a Dispatch Confirmation. That email shall represent our legal acceptance of the offer you made to purchase the item(s) and the contract between us (the Contract). This Contract will only be formed when we send you the Dispatch Confirmation. 


If the order is incomplete and some items are not dispatched, those item(s) will not form part of the Contract. In the event of any change, such as a change in price or expected delivery date between completion of your order and Contract formation, we shall inform you and you shall at that point have the right to either (i) accept such change (in which case your email reply will represent a new offer which we will accept upon notification of dispatch) or (ii) reject such change (in which case your email reply will represent a withdrawal of your order, or the relevant part of your order as the case may be).

Availability and delivery goods

Availability information and delivery times are clearly displayed on the site next to each individual goods/service. If no delivery date is specified, your order will be fulfilled within seven to ten days of the date of the Dispatch Confirmation, unless there are exceptional circumstances.

Risk and title

The goods will be at your risk from the time of delivery. 

Ownership of the goods will only pass to you when we receive full payment of all sums due in respect of the goods, including delivery charges.

Price and payment

All prices will include VAT where VAT is applicable, but exclude delivery costs, which will be added to the total amount.

Refunds and returns

Your statutory rights as a consumer are not affected if, for any reason, you wish to return any goods bought from us within fourteen days of the day after the date the item is delivered (by law, customers from within the European Union have the right to withdraw from the purchase of an item within seven working days of the day after the date the item is delivered). This applies to all of our products except for any digital items that are downloaded (see “Downloads”).

Where you have validly exercised your rights to withdraw from any purchase you will receive a full refund of the price paid for the goods in accordance with our refunds policy.

Please note that we only accept returns for non-faulty products that are returned in their original condition and which have not been used or have no signs of wear and tear.
