How independent retailers will accept your order: An independent retailer's acceptance of your order for products will take place when you place your order via PayPal, at which point a contract will come into existence between you and the relevant independent retailer.
If an independent retailer cannot accept your order, the independent retailer will inform you of this and will not charge you for the relevant product or, where applicable, refund you the price paid for the product within a reasonable period of time. This might be because the product is out of stock, because of unexpected limits on a independent retailer's resources which the independent retailer could not reasonably plan for, because the independent retailer has identified an error in the price or description of the product or because the independent retailer unable to meet a pick-up time you have specified.

Although independent retailers have made every effort to display the colours accurately, independent retailers cannot guarantee that a device's display of the colours accurately reflects the colour of the products. Your product may vary slightly from those images.
Your rights to make changes. If you wish to make a change to the product you have ordered please contact the relevant independent retailer. They will let you know if the change is possible. If it is possible they will let you know about any changes to the price of the product, the timing of supply or anything else which would be necessary as a result of your requested change and ask you to confirm whether you wish to go ahead with the change.

If you have any questions about or issues with your delivery partner, please contact the relevant independent retailer supplying the product(s) to you.
