However please see clause 5.b) for what happens if we discover an error in the price of the product you order.
b) What happens if we got the price wrong. We will normally check prices before accepting your order so that, where the product's correct price at your order date is less than our stated price at your order date, we will charge the lower amount. If the product's correct price at your order date is higher than the price stated to you, we will ask you if it is okay before we accept your order. If we accept and process your order where a pricing error is obvious and unmistakeable and could reasonably have been recognised by you as a mispricing, we may end the contract, refund you any sums you have paid and require the return of any products provided to you.

c) We are not responsible for delays outside our control. If our supply of the products is delayed by an event outside our control then we will contact you as soon as possible to let you know and we will take steps to minimise the effect of the delay. Provided we do this we will not be liable for delays caused by the event, but if there is a risk of substantial delay you may contact us to end the contract and receive a refund for any products you have paid for but not received.
d) Our chosen carrier may make arrangements with you for redelivery or collection if you are not at home when the product is delivered. If you do not re-arrange delivery you may be charged for storage costs and any further delivery costs and if, despite our/our chosen carrier’s reasonable efforts, we are unable to contact you or re-arrange delivery or collection we may end the contract.
