Prices are liable to change at any time, but changes will not affect orders in respect of which we have already sent you a Dispatch Confirmation.
Despite our best efforts, some of the Products listed on the Site may be incorrectly priced.

We are under no obligation to provide the Product to you at the incorrect (lower) price, even after we have confirmed your order or sent you a Dispatch Confirmation, if the pricing error is obvious and unmistakeable and could have reasonably been recognised by you as a mis-pricing.
