Privacy policy

We will treat all information we collect from you under the terms of our privacy policy. This policy governs how we use the information we collect from you as you use our website and when you place an order.


This website displays prices exclusive of VAT at the prevailing rate. Prices in your online shopping basket are displayed without VAT and the total with VAT added appears below.

We do our best to keep our prices up to date, however sometimes mistakes can occur. If we find a mistake in the pricing on your order, we will contact you and advise you of the correct pricing. We will give you the option to cancel your order or continue at the new price. You may be asked to make an additional payment for the difference in pricing.

All prices are in British Pounds (GBP) and all payments and refunds are conducted in this currency. If you place an order from an account denominated in another currency, you will be charged an exchange rate from your currency to GBP by your bank or credit provider and may also be charged a conversion fee. We will not be responsible for any losses as a result of currency exchange charges or exchange rate fluctuations.

Availability of stock

Please contact us to be sure of stock availability. While every effort is made to keep stock availability information as accurate as possible, all items you order are subject to availability. We will check the stock of all the products ordered as we process your order and we will inform you as soon as possible if any goods are not available.

When we are expecting stock of one or more items on your order soon, we may part-dispatch the goods that are currently available, marking the remaining goods on your order "to follow". When this happens, you will not be charged an additional delivery charge for the remaining goods on your order and we will dispatch them to you separately as soon as stock is available. Goods marked "to follow" are usually dispatched within 7 working days. We will contact you if there are any exceptional delays to goods marked "to follow" and you will have the option to cancel your order of the remaining products.

Ordering errors

You are able to correct any errors on your order up to the point on which you enter your payment details and click on "make payment" or "submit" during the ordering process. We will send an e-mail confirmation of the details of your order to the e-mail address you give us. If any of the details appear incorrect on your order, please contact us immediately to correct them.

Payment terms

We will charge your credit/debit card for the full payment when you place your order. If it is not possible to obtain full payment for the goods from your account then we may cancel the contract and or suspend any further deliveries to you.

We operate strict anti-fraud measures and occasionally we may need to contact you to confirm some details of your order as a part of our fraud checks. If we suspect that an order may be fraudulent or if we are unable to complete our checks to our satisfaction, we may cancel your order and refund you in full without notice.

In the unlikely event that someone uses your card fraudulently on our website, you will receive full reimbursement; you will be required to provide evidence that a transaction is fraudulent.


We will attempt to deliver all the goods on your order within 30 days. If this is not possible, we will make every attempt to contact you using the information you provide to us on your order. We accept no liability if a delivery is delayed because you did not give us the correct contact, delivery or payment details.

We will deliver the goods to the address you specify for delivery in your order. It is important that this address is accurate. Please be precise about where you would like the goods left if you are out when we deliver. We cannot accept any liability for any loss or damage to the goods once they have been delivered in accordance with your delivery instructions.

We will aim to deliver the goods by the date quoted for delivery but delivery times are not guaranteed. If delivery is delayed due to any cause beyond our reasonable control, the delivery date will be extended by a reasonable period and we will contact you to arrange an alternative time.
