The Seller accepts your order for a product by sending you a second email confirming this (“Confirmation Email”). The Confirmation Email will contain details of your order. The Seller will send you a Confirmation Email when the product is available and if the Seller is able to process your payment. A binding legal contract between you and the Seller is formed when the Seller sends you the Confirmation Email.

Standard Shipping: typically your order will arrive within 1 to 8 business days after the day you receive the Confirmation Email.
Although the Seller has sent you a Confirmation Email, it is possible that a product which you have ordered is not available because the Seller is not able to obtain it from its own supplier. When this is not due to any fault of the Seller and is beyond the Seller’s reasonable control, the Seller reserves the right to withdraw from the contract. In this case the Seller will notify you by email and on the Online Shop that the product is not available and your payment card will not be charged. If possible the Seller may offer you a substitute product of equivalent quality and price. You are free to accept the offer or not.
Whilst the Seller will do everything he can to keep to any specified delivery periods these cannot always be guaranteed and as such the Seller will not be bound by them, unless it he expressly agrees.
