3.2 How we will accept your order. By placing an order, you are making a request to purchase products on the terms and conditions set out in these Terms of Sale. Once you have placed your order, we will send you an initial acknowledgement of your order by email but it is not until we provide our acceptance that a contract will come into existence. Our acceptance of your order will take place when we dispatch your order. We will notify you of our acceptance by email (and, if you have an account with us, we will confirm this on the order page in your account), at which point a contract will come into existence between you and us.

If we are unable to accept your order, we will inform you of this via email (and, if you have an account with us, this information will be displayed on the order page in your account), and we will not charge you for the products. This might be because a product is out of stock, because of unexpected limits on our resources which we could not reasonably plan for, because we have identified an error in the price or description of a product, because you are not eligible to place an order or because we are unable to meet a delivery deadline you have specified.
3.4 Your order number. We will assign an order number to your order when we accept your order. It will help us if you can tell us the order number whenever you contact us about your order.

5.4 We are not responsible for delays outside our control. If our supply of products is delayed then we will contact you as soon as possible to let you know and we will take steps to minimise the effect of the delay.

6.4 How long do I have to change my mind?

10.3 What happens if we got the price wrong. It is always possible that, despite our best efforts, some of the products we sell may be incorrectly priced. We will normally check prices before accepting and dispatching your order so that, where the product's correct price at the acceptance date is less than our stated price at your order date, we will charge the lower amount.
