- 5.4 If we are unable to supply you with a Product, for example because that Product is not in stock or no longer available or because we cannot meet your requested delivery date or because of an error in the price on our site as referred to in clause 8.5, we will inform you of this by e-mail and we will not process your order. If you have already paid for the Products, we will refund you the full amount including any delivery costs charged as soon as possible.

After you cancel your Order we will refund any sums you have paid to us for the cancelled Products and their delivery.

8. PRICE OF PRODUCTS AND DELIVERY CHARGES
8.1 The prices of the Products will be as quoted on our site at the time you submit your order.

However please see clause 8.5 for what happens if we discover an error in the price of Product(s) you ordered.
- 8.2 Prices for our Products may change from time to time, but changes will not affect any order you have already placed.
- 8.3 The price of a Product includes VAT (where applicable) at the applicable current rate chargeable in the UK for the time being.

We will not process your order until we have your instructions. If we are unable to contact you using the contact details you provided during the order process, we will treat the order as cancelled and notify you in writing.
