Once you have placed your order and we have checked your card details we will take payment for the order that you have made. Products are subject to availability and in the event that we are unable to supply the products, we will inform you of this as soon as possible.
We will not accept your order until such time that you are emailed to say that the products you have ordered have been dispatched, are ready for collection or, in respect of any services, begun. Once you receive such an email, we will be contracted to you, and your contract will be concluded upon delivery of the products or completion of the services.
Any products or services on the same order that we have not yet confirmed via email will not form part of that contract and will form part of a separate contract when the remaining products have been dispatched, are ready for collection or, in respect of any services, begun. Placing an order does not constitute a contract with us until we confirm the products as dispatched, ready for collection or services begun.
We reserve the right not to accept your order for any reason whatsoever, including, but not limited to, payment problems, product availability and product price or description error.
A minimum order value of £5, excluding delivery costs applies for online orders.
Some of our products are restricted to persons over a certain age as laid down by law.

If you would like someone else to collect your order on your behalf and your order contains an age-restricted product (e.g. Knives and blades), we will not be able to provide your order to the person collecting if they are under the relevant legal age.
If, for any reason, there is a problem with collecting payment from your credit / debit card or other chosen payment method after we have confirmed receipt of your order, we will not be obliged to dispatch your order. Additionally, on some occasions, we may be unable to process an order. This may be due to: the item being out of stock or no longer available, your payment being declined, our identification of a pricing error or product description error or an unspecified technical error. If you are sure you are using a valid form of payment, please try again or use a different payment method.

You are responsible for checking with the local customs authorities before placing an order for international delivery. We are unable to offer you any assistance in this regard. Please check thresholds and duties for the international delivery address before placing an order. You are responsible for ensuring that the product can be lawfully imported to the destination country. When ordering from us, the recipient is the importer of record and must comply with all laws and regulations of the destination country.
Please also note that for international deliveries: any manufacturer warranty may not be valid; manufacturer service options may not be available; product manuals, instructions and safety warnings may not be in destination country languages and the products (and accompanying materials) may not be designed in accordance with destination country standards, specifications, and labelling requirements.

Since orders are dispatched promptly, subject to your statutory rights and these terms and conditions, we are only able to cancel orders that have not been dispatched.
If your order has already been sent out, you may still cancel your order if you change your mind, and to do so, simply return your order to our Online Returns Centre within 14 calendar days of receipt. Please refer to Online Returns & Refund Policy.
We are unable to provide a refund of the delivery charges where only part of your order is being cancelled, unless the order was faulty, damaged upon delivery or incorrect.
You may cancel your contract in respect of the following items provided that it is in its original condition (including the packaging where it forms part of the goods, for example, boxed garments and gift items) and for hygiene or safety reasons have not been worn, opened, assembled or used and any seals on the product remain unbroken. Where an item has a swing ticket attached, it must still be attached and undamaged upon return.
You cannot cancel your contract in respect of made-to-measure/order goods (e.g. bespoke/personalised mapping/gifts) or perishable goods (e.g. foods) unless they are faulty, damaged upon delivery or incorrect.
Where you have failed to take reasonable care of the goods, we reserve the right to refuse a refund and return the goods to you at your own cost.
When you purchase goods online we appreciate that you are likely to be seeing any goods you have purchased for the first time. While you are deciding whether to retain your purchase, you do have a statutory duty to take reasonable care of our goods and they remain your responsibility until they arrive safely at our warehouse.
It is imperative that when your unwanted goods are returned to us they are done so in a resalable condition. We reserve the right to inspect all goods that are returned to us so please do not damage the goods while you inspect them. This applies to any original packaging and labels, particularly if the packaging forms part of the goods such as boxed garments and gift items. Extra care must be taken when trying on clothing. Please ensure you are not smoking, wearing any make-up, fragrance or deodorant that may leave a scent or a mark.
Where goods are returned damaged or not in their original packaging, we reserve the right to refund you the purchase price less any deductions due by way of compensation for any damage that may have been caused. In the event that substantial damage has been caused then we reserve the right to refuse a refund or exchange. We may instead return your goods to you. Prior to sending it, you will be charged for all costs in respect of returning such goods (e.g. postage or courier charges).
We do not accept liability for any goods that do not reach our warehouse nor can we accept liability for any goods that may be returned in error. We recommend that you return goods via a recorded delivery service and retain the proof of postage.
In the event that we return your goods to you for any of the above reasons and you do not accept return of the goods, we reserve the right to destroy the goods.
Once we have received the product(s) and if appropriate, any packaging, a refund will be credited to the correct payment card within 21 days. Please note this usually takes between 5 – 7 days but may take up to 21 days.
Please see our returns policy here.
