1.4. Changes to these Terms and Conditions will not apply unless the seller agrees in writing.
1.5. Your statutory rights as a consumer are not affected by anything in these Terms and Conditions.
2. Price and Payment
2.1. The price you pay for the product will be that featured in the current seller price list, however published.

3.3. The seller will always try to meet stated delivery dates. But if the delivery date is not critical, the seller will not be liable for any losses, costs, damages or expenses you, or any third-party incurred, either directly or indirectly, because of the estimated delivery date not being achieved.

If the seller can't deliver the products within seven days (see Clause 3.2) one of the seller's representatives will contact you to explain the position and you will have the option to cancel your order, get a total refund, or choose to have your order delivered at a later date.

On certain products a warranty extension can be provided by simply registering the products warranty after purchase online.
5. Cancellation / Returns and Refunds
5.1. The seller delivers many thousands of products and only a small fraction prove faulty. Of course, the seller understands how difficult this might be for you.
