B. Your Order
Your order shall constitute an offer to us to purchase the Product(s) specified in the order. We may accept or decline the order. Please note that acknowledgement of an order by us does not constitute acceptance of that order or that a contract has been made.
We will confirm acceptance to you by email stating that the order is accepted and that the Product is ready for dispatch or has been dispatched (“Order Confirmation”) at which point a contract will come into existence between you and us.
We reserve the right to (i) refuse any order you place with us, and/or (ii) limit the sales of our Products to any person, geographic region or jurisdiction, and/or (iii) to cancel an order before the Products are delivered, for example, due to an event outside our control or the unavailability of stock or due to an online price error or if the product, despite appearing on the Website, has been discontinued and is no longer available. We will contact you as soon as possible if this happens.
After you place a request for Product(s) on a Marketplace we may respond by notifying you that we have the relevant Product(s) available to sell to you (“Acknowledgement”). You may then choose whether to offer to purchase those Product(s) from us. We may then choose whether to accept or reject your offer. If we choose to accept your offer, we will email you stating that your order has been processed and that the Product is ready for dispatch or has been dispatched (“Order Confirmation”) at which point a contract will come into existence between you and us.

We may, in our sole discretion, limit or cancel quantities purchased per person, per household or per order. These restrictions may include orders placed by or under the same customer account, the same credit card, and/or orders that use the same billing and/or shipping address. This might be because the Product is out of stock, because we have identified an error in the price or description of the Product (including where we have provided such price or description to you following a Marketplace request) or because we are unable to meet a delivery deadline. If we are unable to accept your order or we need to cancel your order, we will inform you of this (using the contact details provided at the time the order was made) and will not charge you for the Product, or, if you have already paid for the Product(s), we shall refund the payment within 7 working days (unless, we reasonably suspect a fraudulent card payment, or have reasonable concerns in relation to identity fraud and/or money laundering).
