3.1 Our Website will guide you through the Order process. Before submitting your Order you will be given the opportunity to review it. Please ensure that you have checked your Order carefully before submitting it to ensure that it is complete and accurate in all respects.
3.2 In order to confirm your Order, you will be asked, and will need, to accept these Conditions. Our acceptance of your Order will take place when we email you to accept it, which is when the Contract shall come into force. Each Order that you place with us shall form the basis of a separate Contract.
3.3 If we are unable to accept your Order, we will contact you in writing and will not charge you for the Goods. This might be for a variety of reasons, including (without limitation) because the Goods are out of stock, because we have identified an error in the price or description of the Goods or because we are unable to meet a delivery deadline you have specified in the Order process.
3.4 If we are unable to accept your Order because the Goods are out of stock, we will contact you in writing and refund the value of the out of stock Goods together with the related shipping costs and if applicable, we will supply you with the remainder of your Order in relation to the Goods which are still in stock.
4.1 All Goods advertised on our Website are subject to availability.
4.2 The images of the Goods on our website are provided purely as an illustration. Although we have made every effort to display the colours, dimensions and other features of the Goods accurately, we cannot guarantee that such features appearing on any illustration reflect the Goods with complete accuracy. Your Goods may therefore vary slightly from those images.
4.3 Product, prices and any relevant technical requirements are subject to change at any time without notice. We shall not be liable if the manufacturer makes any changes to the Goods.
4.4 Although we have made every effort to ensure that all details, descriptions and prices which appear on this Website are accurate, errors may occur. If we discover an error in the price of any Goods which you have ordered we will inform you of this as soon as possible and give you the option of reconfirming your Order at the correct price or cancelling it. If we are unable to contact you we will treat the Order as cancelled and refund any amount paid by you.

6.2 We do not have to agree to any changes that you request. If we do agree to any changes, we will let you know whether it will have an effect on the cost or timing of the supply of Goods, and this will constitute a counter-offer from us. If you do not wish to go ahead with the change or do not respond to our counter-offer within a reasonable amount of time, we will not have to honour the change and the original terms of the Contract will continue to apply.

Where the Goods do not consist of clothing, they must be returned to us in their original, sealed packaging.

11. Our rights to end the Contract

11.2 If we cancel the Contract due to any of the cirumstances set out in Clause 8.9 or 11.1, we will refund any money you have paid in advance for the Goods and we may deduct or charge reasonable compensation for the net costs we incur as a result of you breaking the Contract.
12. Our liability
12.1 We are responsible for loss or damage you suffer that is a foreseeable result of our breaking this Contract or of our failure to use reasonable care and skill. We are not responsible for any loss or damage that is not foreseeable. Loss or damage is foreseeable if either it is obvious that it will happen or if, at the time the Contract was made, both we and you knew it might happen. However, our liability shall not in any circumstances exceed the price you have paid for the Goods, except where clause 12.2 applies.
12.2 We do not exclude or limit in any way our liability to you where it would be unlawful to do so. This includes liability for death or personal injury caused by our negligence or the negligence of our employees, agents or sub-contractors, or liability for fraud or fraudulent misrepresentation.

13.2 If our performance of the Contract is prevented or delayed by any circumstances beyond our reasonable control for a continuous period of 1 month, we will contact you as soon as possible to let you know and reserve the right to terminate the Contract immediately upon written notice, and we will refund to you any amount already paid to us under the Contract.

15.4 If we do not insist immediately that you do anything you are required to do under the Contract, or if we delay in taking steps against you in respect of your breaking this Contract that will not mean that you do not have to do those things or prevent us taking steps against you at a later date.
