The price includes Value Added Tax at the applicable UK rate when the Product is sold to a customer in a European Union country. We may change the price of any Product before you place an order. We try to ensure that the prices displayed on our website are accurate but the price on your order will need to be validated by us as part of the acceptance procedure (see clause 4.4 below). We will inform you if a Product's correct price is higher than that stated in your order and you may cancel the order and decide whether or not to order the Product at the correct price. In the event of a pricing error we will endeavour to honour the price but do reserve the right to cancel any order which would be uneconomic or where the price has been abused. All prices are exclusive of delivery costs and applicable taxes.

We reserve the right to obtain validation (whether direct or via a third party) of your credit or debit card details before providing you with any goods or services.
