    2. We will send you an Order Acknowledgement on receipt of your Order.
      This is not an Order Confirmation or order acceptance by us.

We will accept your offer and create a contract with you by sending to you an Order Confirmation once we have confirmed availability of the Goods or Services, verified your credit card or payment details as necessary and prepared the Goods for dispatch. We reserve the right to obtain validation of your credit or debit card details before providing you with any Goods or Services.
    4. The Order Confirmation will be binding on you unless there is an inadvertent discrepancy between the Goods or Services that you ordered and those detailed in the Order Confirmation. You should notify us as soon as you become aware of any such discrepancy.
    5. When you place an order, you are undertaking to us that:(a) all details you provide to us for the purpose of purchasing Goods or Services are correct and(b) the credit or debit card you use to make a purchase from us is your own card, that you are authorised to use it and that there are sufficient funds or credit facilities to cover the cost of any Goods you order from us.

    2. We shall use reasonable endeavours to despatch Goods to you by the estimated delivery date, but we shall not accept liability for failure to deliver within the stated time or on a stated day, where this is caused by circumstances beyond our reasonable control, such as delays caused by delivery companies.
