- Processing and Delivery of your Order
We reserve the right, at any time prior to dispatching your order and our communicating our acceptance to you (clause 9 Acceptance Email), to refuse any order or any part of an order, or to require further or better information to enable us to evaluate and/or process the order.
We may subsequently be unable to ship the products of your order, or may decide on reasonable grounds not to do so, such as if there are safety concerns or fairness between customers where supplies are limited. Where this is the case, we will inform you and either not take payment or, where we have already done so, offer you a full refund to your original method of payment.
Beyond providing you a full refund, we accept no liability for any failure to ship products where this results from our inability to do so or our decision on reasonable grounds not to do so. This does not affect your statutory rights as a consumer.
In order to avoid disappointment, we strongly recommend that you order in good time to allow for processing and delivery of your order. We will do our best to deliver to you your order as quickly as possible, and in any event within 30 days of accepting your order.

The risk in any products you purchase and the responsibility to insure them will pass to you when the products are delivered to you.
