10.10 As a consumer, you will always have legal rights in relation to Products that are faulty or not as described. These legal rights are not affected by the returns policy in this clause 10 or these Terms.
11.1 Your order will be fulfilled by the estimated delivery date of fourteen (14) working days of the Dispatch Confirmation, unless there is an Event Outside Our Control (as defined in clause 16). For the purposes of the Terms a working day is a day other than a Saturday, Sunday or public holiday in England when banks in London are open for business. If we are unable to meet the estimated delivery date because of an Event Outside Our Control, we will contact you with a revised estimated delivery date and we will take steps to minimise the effect of the delay.
11.2 The costs of UK delivery will be as displayed to you on the site.
11.3 Delivery will be completed when we deliver the Products to the address you gave us.
11.4 The Products will be your responsibility from the completion of delivery.
11.5 You own the Products once we have received payment in full, including all applicable delivery charges.
12. INTERNATIONAL DELIVERY
12.1 We deliver the Products internationally (International Delivery Destinations). The cost of delivery to International Delivery Destinations varies by country and is available on request. Please contact us by sending an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org to obtain a quote for delivery to your address.
12.2 If you order Products from the site for delivery to one of the International Delivery Destinations, your order may be subject to import duties and taxes which are applied when the delivery reaches that destination. Please note that we have no control over these charges and we cannot predict their amount.
12.3 You will be responsible for payment of any such import duties and taxes. Please contact your local customs office for further information before placing your order.
12.4 You must comply with all applicable laws and regulations of the country for which the Products are destined. We will not be liable or responsible if you break any such law.
13. PRICE OF PRODUCTS AND DELIVERY CHARGES
13.1 All charges are in UK pounds (£). Prices displayed in your shopping basket are the current prices of the Products and the amount you will be charged for each item when submitting your order. The prices of the Products will be as quoted on the site from time to time and are subject to change without notice. We take all reasonable care to ensure that the prices of Products are correct at the time when the relevant information was entered onto the system. However if we discover an error in the price of Product(s) you ordered, please see clause 13.5 for further information about what happens in this event.
13.2 Prices for our Products may change from time to time, but changes will not affect any order which we have confirmed with a Dispatch Confirmation.
13.3 The price of a Product includes VAT (where applicable) at the applicable current rate chargeable in the UK for the time being. However, if the rate of VAT changes between the date of your order and the date of delivery, we will adjust the VAT you pay, unless you have already paid for the Products in full before the change in VAT takes effect.
13.4 The price of a Product does not include delivery charges. Our delivery charges are as quoted on the site from time to time and at the point of order.
13.5 The site contains a large number of Products. It is always possible that, despite our reasonable efforts, some of our Products on the site may be incorrectly priced. We will normally check prices as part of our dispatch procedures so that:
(a) where the Product's correct price at your order date is less than the price stated on the site, we will charge the lower amount when dispatching the Products to you. However, if the pricing error is 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 the incorrect (lower) price; and
(b) if the Product's correct price is higher than the price stated on the site, we will contact you as soon as possible to inform you of this error and we will 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 treat the order as cancelled and notify you in writing.
13.6 If you choose to purchase a product from a multi-buy offer, but do not purchase enough Products to qualify for the special discount, the Product(s) will be charged at the normal price.
14. HOW TO PAY
14.1 You can only pay for Products using a debit card or credit card. We accept the following cards: MasterCard Credit, MasterCard Signia, MasterCard World Debit, MasterCard EEA, MasterCard Debit International, Maestro/Solo UK, Maestro International, Visa Credit, Visa Debit UK, Visa Electron UK, Visa Debit International. We also accept PayPal and Stripe.
14.2 Payment for the Products and all applicable delivery charges is in advance (before we dispatch them). We will not charge your debit card or credit card or PayPal account until we dispatch your order.
15. OUR LIABILITY TO YOU AS A CONSUMER
15.1 If we fail to comply with these Terms, we are responsible for loss or damage you suffer that is a foreseeable result of our breach of these Terms or our negligence, but we are not responsible for any loss or damage that is not foreseeable. Loss or damage is foreseeable if they were an obvious consequence of our breach or if they were contemplated by you and us at the time we entered into the Contract.
15.2 We only supply the Products for domestic and private use. You agree not to use the Product for any commercial, business or re-sale purposes, and we have no liability to you for any loss of profit, loss of business, business interruption, or loss of business opportunity.
15.3 We do not in any way exclude or limit our liability for:
(a) death or personal injury caused by our negligence; nor
(b) fraud or fraudulent misrepresentation.
16. EVENTS OUTSIDE OUR CONTROL
16.1 We will not be liable or responsible for any failure to perform, or delay in performance of, any of our obligations under a Contract that is caused by an Event Outside Our Control. An Event Outside Our Control is defined below in clause 16.2.
16.2 An Event Outside Our Control means any act or event beyond our reasonable control.
16.3 If an Event Outside Our Control takes place that affects the performance of our obligations under a Contract:
(a) we will contact you as soon as reasonably possible to notify you;
(b) our obligations under a Contract will be suspended and the time for performance of our obligations will be extended for the duration of the Event Outside Our Control. Where the Event Outside Our Control affects our delivery of Products to you, we will arrange a new delivery date with you after the Event Outside Our Control is over; and

18. OTHER IMPORTANT TERMS

18.3 Subject to clause 18.1, this contract is between you and us. No other person shall have any rights to enforce any of its terms.
18.4 Each of the paragraphs of these Terms operates separately. If any court or relevant authority decides that any of them are unlawful or unenforceable, the remaining paragraphs will remain in full force and effect.
18.5 If we fail to insist that you perform any of your obligations under these Terms, or if we do not enforce our rights against you, or if we delay in doing so, that will not mean that we have waived our rights against you and will not mean that you do not have to comply with those obligations. If we do waive a default by you, we will only do so in writing, and that will not mean that we will automatically waive any later default by you.
18.6 Please note that these Terms are governed by the law of England and Wales. This means a Contract for the purchase of Products through the site and any dispute or claim arising out of or in connection with it will be governed by the law of England and Wales.

However, if you are a resident of Northern Ireland you may also bring proceedings in Northern Ireland, and if you are a resident of Scotland, you may also bring proceedings in Scotland.
