The processing of an order can be cancelled or corrected by us at anytime up to the shipment of that order and any related items.
4.2 We reserve the right to alter all product pricing without notice.
4.3 Title in any products ordered from us does not pass to you, the purchaser until we have received and processed a valid payment, and that payment has been made into our own bank account and your order has been shipped.
5. Your Order
5.1 When you place an order you will automatically receive a confirmation email from us to confirm your order (providing you have supplied a valid email address with your order). Your order constitutes an offer made to us to purchase the goods specified in the order.

6.1 All orders received by us are shipped subject to availability.
6.2 We reserve the right to ship products at a later date (up to 28 days after purchase) where the product ordered is not in stock at the time of purchase. In this situation you will be contacted and offered a full refund instead of delivery of the product.
