In rare occasions, the availability of a product may be misrepresented on the website. When we process your order, we will inform you by email if any products you order turn out to be unavailable and where possible inform you when they will become available. If, however, we are unable to locate your item, we will offer you an alternative.
All dates quoted for delivery are estimated delivery dates only and may be subject to change and we can accept no liability for any loss or damage, charges or expenses (whether direct or indirect) for delivery at any time other than the estimated date for delivery.
