Please refer to Clause 11 if you receive incorrect Goods (i.e. Goods that are not as described).
6.3 Where appropriate, you may be required to select the required size, colour, and number, of the Goods that you are purchasing.
6.4 We cannot guarantee that Goods will always be available. Stock indications are provided on Our Site, however such indications are snapshots in time and orders made by other customers at the same time may affect stock levels before they are displayed.
6.5 Minor changes may, from time to time, be made to certain Goods between your Order being placed and Us processing that Order and dispatching the Goods, for example, to reflect changes in relevant laws and regulatory requirements, or to address particular technical or security issues. Any such changes will not change any main characteristics of the Goods and will not normally affect your use of those Goods. However, if any change is made that would affect your use of the Goods, suitable information will be provided to you.
6.6 We make all reasonable efforts to ensure that all prices shown on Our Site are correct at the time of going online. We reserve the right to change prices and to add, alter, or remove special offers from time to time and as necessary. Changes in price will not affect any order that you have already placed.
6.7 All prices are checked by Us before We accept your Order. In the unlikely event that We have shown incorrect pricing information, We will contact you in writing to inform you of the mistake. If the correct price is lower than that shown when you made your Order, we will simply charge you the lower amount and continue processing your Order. If the correct price is higher, We will give you the option to purchase the Goods at the correct price or to cancel your Order (or the affected part of it). We will not proceed with processing your Order in this case until you respond. If We do not receive a response from you within 10 working days, We will treat your Order as cancelled and notify you of this in writing.

7. Orders – How Contracts Are Formed
7.1 Our Site will guide you through the ordering process. Before submitting your Order you will be given the opportunity to review your Order and amend it. Please ensure that you have checked your Order carefully before submitting it.
7.2 If, during the order process, you provide Us with incorrect or incomplete information, please contact Us as soon as possible. If We are unable to process your Order due to incorrect or incomplete information, We will contact you to ask to correct it. If you do not give us the accurate or complete information within a reasonable time of Our request, We will cancel your Order and treat the Contract as being at an end. If We incur any costs as a result of your incorrect or incomplete information, We may pass those costs on to you.
7.3 No part of Our Site constitutes a contractual offer capable of acceptance. Your Order constitutes a contractual offer that We may, at Our sole discretion, accept. Our automated acknowledgement of receipt of your Order does not mean that we have accepted it. Our acceptance is indicated by Us sending you an Order Confirmation by email. Only once We have sent you an Order Confirmation will there be a legally binding Contract between Us and you.

7.4.1 Your Order Number;
7.4.2 Confirmation of the Goods ordered including full details of the main characteristics of those Goods;
7.4.3 Fully itemised pricing for the Goods ordered including, where appropriate, taxes, delivery and other additional charges;

9.2.1 Typically our goods can be posted through a standard letter box, however if no one is available at your delivery address to receive the Goods and they cannot be posted through your letterbox or left in a safe place nominated by you, Royal Mail will leave a delivery note explaining how to rearrange delivery or where to collect the Goods;
9.2.2 If you do not collect the Goods or rearrange delivery within 5 days Royal Mail will return them to Us. We will contact you to ask you how you wish to proceed. If we cannot contact you or arrange re-delivery or collection, We will treat the Contract as cancelled and recover the Goods. If this happens, you will be refunded the purchase price of the Goods themselves, but not the cost of delivery. We may also bill you for any reasonable additional cost that we incur in recovering the Goods.
9.3 In the unlikely event that We fail to deliver the Goods within 30 calendar days of Our Order Confirmation (or as otherwise agreed or specified as under sub-Clause 10.1), if any of the following apply you may treat the Contract as being at an end immediately:
9.3.1 We have refused to deliver your Goods; or
9.3.2 In light of all relevant circumstances, delivery within that time period was essential; or
9.3.3 You told Us when ordering the Goods that delivery within that time period was essential.
9.4 If you do not wish to cancel under sub-Clause 9.3 or if none of the specified circumstances apply, you may specify a new (reasonable) delivery date. If We fail to meet the new deadline, you may then treat the Contract as being at an end.
9.5 Any sums that you have already paid for cancelled Goods and their delivery will be refunded to you within 14 days. Please note that if any cancelled Goods are delivered to you, you must return them to Us.
9.6 Delivery shall be deemed complete and the responsibility for the Goods will pass to you once We have delivered the Goods to the address including, where relevant, any alternative address you have provided.
9.7 Ownership of the Goods passes to you once we have received payment in full of all sums due (including any applicable delivery charges) and dispatched the goods via our chosen carrier.
9.8 Any refunds due under this Clause 9 will be made using the same payment method that you used when ordering the Goods
10. Faulty, Damaged or Incorrect Goods
10.1 By law, We must provide goods that are of satisfactory quality, fit for purpose, as described at the time of purchase, in accordance with any pre-contract information We have provided. If any Goods you have purchased do not comply and, for example, have faults or are damaged when you receive them, or if you receive incorrectly priced Goods, please contact Us at firstname.lastname@example.org as soon as reasonably possible to inform Us of the fault, damage or error, and to arrange for a refund or replacement. IMPORTANT: It is your responsibility to order the correct size using the guidelines we provide in the Sizing Guide.
Your available remedies will be as follows:

10.1.2 If you do not wish to reject the Goods, you may request a replacement of the Goods. We will arrange a replacement within a reasonable time. If a replacement is impossible or otherwise disproportionate, We may instead offer you the alternative (i.e. a replacement of another item of equal value) or a full refund.
10.1.3 If, after a replacement, the Goods still do not conform (or if We cannot do so as previously described, or have failed to act within a reasonable time or without significant inconvenience to you), you may have the right to reject them in exchange for a refund.
10.1.4 If you exercise the final right to reject the goods more than 30 days after you have received the Goods (and ownership of them), We will reduce any refund to reflect the use that you have had out of the Goods.
10.1.5 Within a period of 60 days after you have received the Goods (and ownership of them), if the Goods do not last a reasonable length of time, you may be entitled to a partial refund. Please be aware that after 30 days have passed since you received the Goods, the burden of proof will be on you to prove that the defect or non-conformity existed at the time of delivery.
10.2 Please note that you will not be eligible to claim under this Clause 10 if We informed you of the fault(s), damage or other problems with the Goods before you purchased them (and it is because of the same issue that you now wish to return them); if you have purchased the Goods for an unsuitable purpose that is neither obvious nor made known to Us and the problem has resulted from your use of the Goods for that purpose; or if the problem is the result of normal wear and tear, misuse or intentional or careless damage. Please also note that you may not return Goods to Us under this Clause 10 merely because you have changed your mind.
10.3 To return Goods to Us for any reason under this Clause 10, please contact Us at email@example.com to arrange for a return.
