7. No international delivery
7.1 Unfortunately, we do not deliver to addresses outside the UK.
7.2 You may place an order for Goods from outside the UK, but this order must be for delivery to an address in the UK.

We take all reasonable care to ensure that the prices of Goods are correct at the time when the relevant information was entered onto the system.

8.2 Prices for our Goods may change from time to time, but changes will not affect any order you have already placed.
8.3 The price of Goods excludes VAT (where applicable) at the applicable current rate chargeable in the UK for the time being.
