3.1 You must be aged 18 or over to purchase product(s) from the Website.
3.2 You should follow the onscreen prompts during the order process to place and pay for an order.
3.3 You must check your order carefully before placing it as you are responsible for ensuring that your order is complete and accurate.
3.4 After you have placed your order, we will send you an order confirmation email detailing the product(s) you have ordered. This does not mean that your order is accepted.
3.5 Your order is an offer to purchase from us. Our acceptance of your order will take place when we despatch your order, at which point a contract will be formed between you and us. This contract will be in English.
3.6 We are not obliged to accept your order and may reject your order at any point before despatch. If we do not accept your order, we will inform you of this in writing and we will not charge you for the order. The reasons why we might not accept your order may include: the product is out of stock; there are unexpected limits on our resources which we could not reasonably plan for; you do not meet our eligibility criteria to place the order (e.g. you have purchased an age-restricted product and we reasonably believe you are below the applicable minimum age for it); we have identified an error in the price or description of the product; we cannot obtain authorisation for your payment; or we are unable to meet a delivery deadline you have specified.
3.7 For product(s) being delivered to you, we will send you an order despatch email when your product(s) have been despatched.
4.1 Product(s) may be subject to special terms and conditions set out in the description of the product including, without limitation, warranties, guarantees and delivery restrictions.
4.2 We are only permitted to sell certain products to customers who are above a certain age and it is an offence to purchase or attempt to purchase certain products if you are under a certain age (e.g. knives and alcohol can only be purchased by and for individuals aged 18 and over). By confirming your age when requested during the order process, you confirm that you meet the specified age requirement and that you are not purchasing any age-restricted product for any individual below that specified age requirement. We reserve the right to take steps to verify your age and not supply an age-restricted product where we reasonably believe that it has been purchased by or for an individual below the relevant minimum age.
4.3 We provide the content on the Website in good faith and for information only. We make reasonable efforts to ensure that product details are correct when entered into the Website. However, we make no representation, warranty or guarantee that such details or any content on the Website are accurate, complete or up to date or that the Website or its content does not infringe the rights of any third party. Further, the information provided on the Website is not intended to amount to advice on which you should rely (including in respect of the operation or use of any product).

Your product (including the packaging) may vary slightly from these images.
5.1 The price of a product will be the price indicated on the order page when you place your order.
5.2 Our prices include VAT (where applicable). If the rate of VAT changes between the date of your order and the date we despatch the product(s), we will adjust the rate of VAT that you pay to the rate of VAT applicable at the time of despatch.
5.3 It is always possible that, despite our best efforts, some of the products we sell may be incorrectly priced. If we accept your order and it contains an obvious and unmistakeable pricing error that you could reasonably recognise as a mispricing, we may end the contract, refund to you any sums you have paid and require the return of any product(s) provided to you.
