Our Contract

Making a purchase could not be easier. You will have the opportunity to check and correct any input errors within your order up until you submit your order.

All goods are guaranteed for a minimum of 30 days. On some products there is an extended guarantee, and in such cases the extended period is outlined in the product’s description. Your statutory rights are not affected.
