Product descriptions are regularly updated to ensure that any information we are aware of that is pertinent to the product in question is displayed clearly. However, the product description content is for your general use and information only; it is subject to change without notice. Also, neither we nor any third party provide any warranty or guarantee as to the accuracy, performance, completeness or suitability of the information provided in the descriptions.

1.2   Product Availability

We endeavour to ensure that our stock figures are regularly up dated and are correct. However, as we sell our products on our own site, from our premises and via eBay, the stock position may change quicker then we can update our database. If we are unable to supply an item as it is out of stock we will contact you to let you know and discuss options from there. There are three possible options in this situation: we can credit you in reward points or refund you for the out of stock item, we can send other products to the same value as the out of stock item or we can send the items on to you when we receive more stock. If we are unable to contact you we will automatically refund you for the item(s). We are not responsible for any difficulties you may have in fulfilling your orders as a consequence of our stock levels.

1.3.2          Although we attempt to ensure that all prices on the website are correct, errors may occur. If an order has been placed that includes a product with an incorrect price we may have to amend the price which might mean that there will be extra to pay.
