When you have finished placing products in your Basket, you will have the opportunity to check your order. Don't worry if the Basket isn't correct, you can change the contents of the Basket at any time before pressing "place your order" on the last order page.
Once you have been through the online checkout and placed your order by pressing the "place your order" button, you will be shown an order number along with a list of the products that you have ordered. Shortly after, you will receive the first email from us headed "Thank you for your Order" to confirm that we have received your order. We will then send you a second email headed "Your Order has been Shipped" and it's at this point our contract begins with you. This email will tell you how your order will be delivered to you. If there are any problems with your order, we'll contact you and let you know.
Provided that your payment has been successful and there are no problems with your order, you will own the products you order at the point they are delivered to your delivery address or if you have selected the "delivery to store" option, at the point you collect them.
We are human
We try to get things right all of the time but very rarely we may make a mistake by publishing inaccurate information about our products (e.g. the price, description or availability of a product you have ordered). If we do, we will hold our hands up and tell you that we've made a mistake. We may have to cancel your order at any time up to the point we send you the products, even if you have received a 'Thank you for your Order' email from us. If we cancel your order, we'll make sure that you receive a full refund including any delivery charges. Sometimes things happen which are outside of our control such as adverse weather or an incident involving one of our delivery vehicles which may mean we are unable to deliver or are delayed from delivering any product you have ordered from us. If this happens then:
We will contact you as soon as possible to tell you that delivery times may need to change.
When the event causing the problem is over, we will arrange a new delivery date with you and if necessary refund any delivery charges (for example, where you have paid for next day delivery).
