You must pay by credit [or debit] card at the time of order. The price of any product is the price in force at the date and time of your order and will be subject to VAT at the prevailing rate. VAT is included in all listed pricing unless otherwise stated.? We may change the price of any product before you place an order. We try to ensure that our prices displayed on our web site are accurate but the price on your order will need to be validated by us as part of the acceptance procedure.

You must ensure the confirmation is accurate and contact us if not.
You undertake that all details you provide to us for the purpose of purchasing products which may be offered by us on our web site will be correct, that the credit or debit card, or any electronic cash, which you use is your own and that there are sufficient funds or credit facilities to cover the cost of any products. We reserve the right to obtain validation of your credit or debit card details before providing you with any products.
If for any reason you will not accept delivery of any of the products when they are ready for delivery, or we are unable to deliver the products on time because you have not provided appropriate instructions, documents, licence's or authorisations:
• Risk in the products will pass to you (including for loss or damage caused by our negligence);
• The products will be deemed to have been delivered; and
• We may store the products until delivery whereupon you will be liable for all related costs and expenses (including, without limitation, storage and insurance).

interest to us on such sum from the due date for payment at the annual rate of
3% above the base lending rate from time to time of Barclays Bank plc, accruing
on a daily basis until payment is made, whether before or after any judgment.
