After submitting an order to us, we will send you an order confirmation email. This email will include your order number, details of the Products you have ordered from us and delivery details. Please note that this email is an acknowledgement of your order and is not an acceptance of your order.
Acceptance of your order and formation of a contract of sale takes place when your order has been dispatched and we have sent you an email confirming this.
When placing an order for the first time, you may be required to or may be offered the option to register with us and complete certain required fields on an order form.

The customer is responsible to pay import duties and custom charges, wherever that applies.
Product prices are set at the beginning of each season using existing currency exchange rates. These prices are subject to change if the applicable currency exchange rate changes before your order is accepted or the items are subject to markdowns at any time during the selling period.

You confirm that the credit/debit card that is being used is yours or that you have been specifically authorised by the owner of the credit/debit card to use it. All credit/debit card holders are subject to validation checks and authorisation by the card issuer. If the issuer of your payment card refuses to authorise payment to us, we will not be liable for any delay or non-delivery.
To help ensure that your shopping experience is safe and secure, we use PCI compliant systems and 3rd party suppliers to ensure all data is handled safely and without risk.
We have the right to cancel your purchase without prior notification. Examples of occasions we may choose to cancel your purchase are: your card details have been flagged by our fraud screening processes or are declined by our fraud screening processed.
