When ordering items, the buyer will be required to provide payment details and you represent and warrant that the payment details you provide on ordering are both valid and correct and you confirm that you are the person referred to in the billing information provided.
When an order is made online, the order confirmation issued by the company clearing the credit/debit card payment does not constitute acceptance of your order by us. We reserve the right to check any discrepancies and an order will only be processed when it is verified by us.
All orders are subject to acceptance and availability.
Any error in the ordering process due to technical or other reasons beyond the seller’s control entitles us not to treat the order as being binding on us.
There is a limit of €1,000 on the value of goods that can be purchased by any individual or on any individual credit card in any one transaction.
Once a choice has been made and the order has been placed, the buyer will receive an email acknowledging the details of the order. This email is NOT an acceptance of the order. Unless the buyer cancels the order in accordance with the seller’s Cancellation Policy, acceptance of the order and completion of the contract between buyer and seller will be perfected when we dispatch the goods to you.
The sale contract is therefore concluded in Ireland and the language of the contract is English. The contract will be subject to these terms and conditions and governed by Irish law and the buyer agrees to submit to the non-exclusive jurisdiction of the Irish courts in respect of any dispute that may arise under it.
The seller reserves the right not to accept the buyer’s order in the event, for example, that we are unable to obtain authorisation for payment or that the item ordered is out of stock.

In the case that the goods have been damaged in transit, the buyer must keep all packaging as this may be required when making a claim.
