  • We will tell you if we or one of our fellow merchant retailers is the seller. If we are the seller, the legal contract for the sale and supply of those goods and/or services will be made directly between you and us. The terms of that contract are set out here and will find other links to them on our website or when you follow the online ordering process. You must read the terms before you complete your order to make sure you agree to them. There may be additional special terms applying to particular goods or services and we will tell you about these before the sale so that you can check and agree to them as well.
  • Other goods and services available on this site may be provided by a third-party merchant retailer through a third-party website (which is linked to or framed on our site), or alternatively by us acting as agent introducing a third-party retailer. In either of these cases, the legal contract will be made between you and that third party merchant (a ”vendor”). The merchant’s terms and conditions shall apply to the sale and supply of the goods or services. They will be made available to you by the merchant during the ordering process before you confirm your order.

    iv) The merchant’s data protection policies and practices may differ from ours. We are not responsible for, and have no control over, any data that is submitted to or collected by or on behalf of a merchant.
