2. Purchase of Products

At the same time, if we have accepted your order, we will notify you of delivery dates. The contract between us (“Contract”) will only be formed when we send you the Order Confirmation for your order.
2.6 The Contract will relate only to those Products whose order we have confirmed in the Order Confirmation. We will not be obliged to supply any other Products which may have been part of your order until the acceptance of such Products has been confirmed in a separate Order Confirmation.

If the Product becomes unavailable prior to delivery, we will notify you as soon as possible following the Order Confirmation. Either us or you may then cancel the part(s) of the order relating to the unavailable Product (including those Products which can be reasonably linked to the unavailable Product) or we will, where possible, give you the choice of purchasing an alternative from us (an “Alternative”). A full refund will be issued to you for all cancelled parts of your order after we have received from you or sent notification of cancellation of the order.

If you confirm you want to purchase the Product at the corrected price, we will then arrange delivery of the Product to you. If payment has been taken for the Product and you cancel your order we will, on return of the Product (if the Product has been sent out) issue a refund. If only some of the Products you ordered are mispriced it will not affect the order in relation to any Products which were priced correctly.
