1. Our Contract With You
1.1 Our shopping pages will guide you through the steps you need to take to place an order with us. Our order process allows you to check and amend any errors before submitting your order to us. Please take the time to read and check your order at each stage of the order process. Alternatively, you can request that a member of our customer services team places an order on your behalf.

1.3 When you submit your order and receive an Order Confirmation from us, this does not mean that we have accepted your order, this only means that the order has been successfully received into our system. Following Order Confirmation, we will undertake validity and verification checks.
