Information Provided on our Site
We attempt to provide accurate descriptions of our products and illustrate them with their associated images, but please note that there may be slight variations in product colour, packaging design, ingredients or specifications from time to time. We do not warrant, however, that the descriptions are accurate, complete, reliable, current or error-free. If a Product is not as described, you can return the item, unless otherwise specified in writing by us.
We strive to provide accurate pricing information regarding the Products available on the Site. We cannot, however, ensure that pricing errors do not occur. We reserve the right, at our sole discretion, to not process or to cancel any orders placed for a product whose price was incorrectly posted on the Site. If this occurs, we will notify you by email.
The Site may contain information regarding the availability of products. In rare cases, a product may be in stock when you place the order, and sold out by the time we attempt to process the order. Should this happen, we will notify you by email and cancel the item from your order.
We may offer some products for sale before they have been manufactured or arrive at our warehouse. When you pre-order these products, we will ship them out once they are available. In rare cases, these items may not become available for shipping. Should this happen, we will notify you by email and cancel the item from your order.
We occasionally run competitions, promotions or provide limited-time offers for our Products. Please review the promotion or offer for eligibility and other terms and conditions which will override these terms and conditions in the event of any conflict between them. Please also see our Competitions and Prizes Policy.
All orders are subject to acceptance by us and availability. If the products ordered are not available, you will be notified by email (or by other means if no email address has been provided). You will have the option either to wait until the item is available from stock or to cancel your order.
You agree to provide accurate and up-to-date payment information at the time you order any products or services.
When you order online, you will place your order request for products from the Site by clicking on the Complete Order button at the end of the online order process. When you have placed your order, we will send you an email acknowledgement providing you with the details of your order (“Order Confirmation”), as well as the value of your order which will be debited to your chosen payment method.
Any orders placed by you will be treated as an offer to purchase the products or services from us and we have the right to reject or not accept such offers at any time. You acknowledge that any Order Confirmation or other automated acknowledgement of your order which you may receive from us shall not amount to our acceptance of your offer to purchase products or services advertised on the Site.
Unless we notify you by email that we do not accept your order for whatever reason, or you cancel your order, our acceptance of your offer and therefore conclusion of a contract between you and us will take place when we (i) debit your credit, debit card or PayPal account or (ii) dispatch the products to you or commence the services, whichever is the later. We will either not charge you or refund the charges for orders that we cancel or do not process.
We will take all reasonable care, in so far as it is in our power to do so, to keep the details of your order and payment secure, but in the absence of negligence on our part we cannot be liable for any loss you may suffer if a third party procures unauthorised access to any data provided by you or on your behalf when accessing or ordering from the Site.
