2 YOUR STATUS

3 HOW THE CONTRACT IS FORMED BETWEEN YOU AND US
3.1 After placing an order, you will receive an e-mail from us acknowledging that we have received your order (if a valid e-mail address was provided). Please note that this does not mean that your order has been accepted. Your order constitutes an offer to us to buy a Product. All orders are subject to acceptance by us, and we will confirm such acceptance to you by sending you an e-mail that confirms that the Product has been dispatched (the Dispatch Confirmation). The contract between us (Contract) will only be formed when we send you the Dispatch Confirmation.
3.2 The Contract will relate only to those Products whose dispatch we have confirmed in the Dispatch Confirmation. We will not be obliged to supply any other Products which may have been part of your order until the dispatch of such Products has been confirmed in a separate Dispatch Confirmation.
4 AVAILABILITY AND DELIVERY
4.1 Your order will be dispatched by the date set out in the Dispatch Confirmation or, if no date is specified, then within a reasonable time of the date of the Dispatch Confirmation, unless there are exceptional circumstances.
4.2 Dispatch will normally be made through Royal Mail. Please ensure that you order your Products in plenty of time for your special occasion to avoid disappointment. We cannot guarantee delivery times but approximate postage times according to Royal Mail and full details of our postage costs are outlined in our pricing and postage costs page.
4.3 The Products will be at your risk from the time of delivery.
4.4 Ownership of the Products will only pass to you when we receive full payment of all sums due in respect of the Products, including delivery charges.
5 DELIVERY OUTSIDE OF ENGLAND AND WALES
5.1 We are satisfied that our Products comply with all relevant laws in England and Wales. However, we cannot guarantee the position in any other country and if you order Products for delivery outside of England and Wales, you must ensure that the Products and your use of them complies with all applicable laws and regulations. We will not be liable for any breach by you of any such laws.
5.2 Products delivered outside of England and Wales may also be subject to import duties and/or taxes which are levied when the delivery reaches the specified destination. You will be responsible for payment of any such import duties and taxes. Please note that we have no control over these charges and cannot predict their amount. Please contact your local customs office for further information before placing your order.
6.1 All of our Products are very safe to use. However, they must be operated in accordance with our Safety instructions provided with your product.
6.2 It is your responsibility to use the Products safely and responsibly. They are not toys and must not be used by children. If a Product is damaged or defective in any way, you must not use it. Contact us in accordance with clause 8.4.
7 PRICE AND PAYMENT
7.1 The price of any Products will be as quoted on our site from time to time, except in cases of obvious error. These prices include VAT but exclude delivery costs, which will be added to the total amount due as set out in our pricing and postage costs page.
7.2 Prices are liable to change at any time, but changes will not affect orders in respect of which we have already sent you a Dispatch Confirmation.
7.3 Our site contains a large number of Products and it is always possible that, despite our best efforts, some of the Products listed on our site may be incorrectly priced. We will normally verify prices as part of our dispatch procedures so that, where a Product's correct price is less than our stated price, we will charge the lower amount when dispatching the Product to you. If a Product's correct price is higher than the price stated on our site, we will normally, at our discretion, either contact you for instructions before dispatching the Product, or reject your order and notify you of such rejection.
7.4 We are under no obligation to provide the Product to you at the incorrect (lower) price, even after we have sent you a Dispatch Confirmation, if the pricing error is obvious and unmistakeable and could have reasonably been recognised by you as a mis-pricing.
7.5 Payment for all Products must be by a credit or debit card listed on our site.
