Price and payment
All prices are in pounds sterling and include VAT at the current rate.
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. 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.
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.
We do not store any information relating to your bank account, credit or debit card or paypal account. When you make a payment the payment is processed on our behalf by PAYPAL (except in the case of BACS when you are responsible for transferring the payment to our account, and we do not see any of your bank details).
Paypal use encryption to safeguard your credit card information.
