10.2 All prices on our site are quoted in GBP (£). The quoted prices are inclusive of VAT. All prices quoted on our site are exclusive of delivery costs, which will be added to the total amount due and calculated in accordance with condition 8.2 above.
10.3 Prices and charges are liable to change at any time, but changes will not affect orders in respect of which we have already sent you an Order Confirmation.
10.4 Our site contains a large number of Products and it is always possible that, despite our best efforts, some of the Products listed on our site may be incorrectly priced. We will normally verify prices as part of our dispatch procedures so that, where a Product’s correct price is less than our stated price, we will charge the lower amount when dispatching the Product to you. If a Product’s correct price is higher than the price stated on our site, we will normally, at our discretion, either contact you for instructions before dispatching the Product, or reject your order and notify you of such rejection. We are under no obligation to provide the Product to you at the incorrect (lower) price, even after we have sent you an Order Confirmation, if the pricing error is obvious and unmistakeable and could have reasonably been recognised by you as a mis-pricing.
10.5 Payment for all Products must be by credit or debit cards, which are detailed on our WorldPay site. No handling or administration fees will be charged.
11. OUR REFUNDS POLICY
11.1 If you are unhappy with any products then please contact us directly either by email to firstname.lastname@example.org or by telephone on 01937 845 767 during the hours Monday to Friday 8:00am to 4:30pm to discuss the matter. Refunds will be arranged at our discretion.
11.2 Where you cancel a Contract before the Product(s) has been dispatched we will refund the cost of the Product(s) in full and will process the refund due as soon as possible and in any case within 30 days from the date on which you gave notice of your cancellation.

• 11.3.1 because you have cancelled the Contract between us within the seven-day cooling-off period we will process the refund due to you as soon as possible after we have received the Product in the same condition in which you received it. In this case, we will refund the price of the Product in full, including the cost of sending the Product to you. However, you will be responsible for the cost of returning the Product to us. You have a legal obligation to take reasonable care of the product whilst it is in your possession. If you fail to comply with this obligation, and/or the Product when returned to us is not in the same condition as it was when sent to you, we may have a right of action against you for compensation and may withhold part of your refund. You will also be responsible for the possible risk of loss or damage to the Product incurred during the transit back to us. We recommend that you send the Product back to us by recorded delivery and that you have sufficient insurance to cover the value of the Product returned. If the Product fails to be returned to us we cannot refund any payment made.
• 11.3.2 for any other reason (for instance, you claim that the Product is defective), we will examine the returned Product and will notify you of your refund (if any) via e-mail within a reasonable period of time. We will usually process any refund due to you as soon as possible and, in any case, within 30 days of the day we confirmed to you via e-mail that you were entitled to a refund for the defective Product. Products returned by you because of a defect which we have confirmed will be refunded in full, including a refund of the delivery charges for sending the item to you and the cost incurred by you in returning the item to us.
