It is only at the point when dispatch is confirmed that your order is accepted and a contract for the supply of the Product(s) covered by that Dispatch Confirmation is formed between us (“the Contract“).
The Dispatch Confirmation will be sent to the email address provided when you placed your order. The Contract will only relate to the Product(s) whose dispatch we have confirmed in the Dispatch Confirmation.
