The technical steps required to form a contract between the Supplier and the Customer are as follows:-You place the order for your products on the Site by pressing the ‘Make Payment' button at the end of the check-out process. You will be guided through the process of placing an order by a series of simple instructions on the Site.
We will send to you an order acknowledgement e-mail detailing the products you have ordered and where you wish the products in the order to be sent to. This is NOT an order acceptance from us; it is merely acknowledging that we have received your order and are considering whether to accept it.
Order acceptance and the entering into of a contract between you and us will take place as soon as we have sent an e-mail to you stating that we have accepted your order and dispatched the products to you. That acceptance will be deemed complete and will be deemed for all purposes to have been effectively communicated to you at the time we send the e-mail to you (whether or not you receive that e-mail). This email amounts to an acceptance by us of your offer to buy products from us.
If we notify you that we do not accept your order, or do not reply to your order (which we will always endeavour to do, but cannot guarantee that this will always occur); then there will be no contract between us and you to sell you the products that you ordered.
Non-acceptance of an order may, amongst other matters, be a result of one of the following:
- the product you ordered being discontinued or unavailable from stock;
- our inability to obtain authorisation for your payment;
- the identification of a pricing or product description error;
