6. Membership; User Names and Passwords
Any online community hosted on our Website (the “Community”) is designed for you and your family’s enjoyment. As a member of the Community, you may receive certain specialised content, as well as special offers from Company. If you become a member of the Community, you represent that: (i) you are authorized to join Internet programs in which e-mail communications are used; and (ii) you are 18 years of age or older. In addition, with respect to such membership, Company may refuse to grant you, and you may not use, a user name (or e-mail address) that is already being used by someone else; that may be construed as impersonating another person; that belongs to another person; that violates the intellectual property or other rights of any person; that is offensive; or that we reject for any other reason in our sole discretion.
You further agree that you are responsible for all activities that occur under your account or password, and agree not to sell, transfer or assign your subscription or any associated rights. Company reserves the right to terminate your membership to the Community if any individual other than you attempts to access the Website using your user name or password or if you (or anyone using your user name and password) otherwise breach these Terms & Conditions. You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your password and for restricting access to your computer so others may not access the Website in violation of these Terms & Conditions. It is your sole responsibility to ensure that the e-mail address you initially provide is deliverable and, should your e-mail address change, it is your sole responsibility to return to the Website and update your e-mail address.

In such cases, no retroactive benefits will be provided for the period your membership was in a suspended state. You must remove yourself from membership to the Community should you wish to no longer receive e-mail communications from Company. Simply “replying” to an e-mail message sent to you is not an authorized method of removal and such requests will not be processed. Removal from the Community is properly accomplished by using your web browser to visit the Website and entering your e-mail address and password. Once logged in, you will need to opt out of participating in the Community by sending a request through Contact Us. Company may send you an email confirming your removal from the Community. No other methods of removal are approved or authorized.

14. Product and Service Availability
Reference to any product or service on the Website does not constitute an offer to sell or supply that product or service and does not mean that the product or service is available or that the name and description of any product from our wholesale distributors will be the same as that included on the website. Prepackaged gifts and kits are assembled individually and may vary slightly. We reserve the right to substitute a product of equal value and nature if the original product becomes unavailable. We will not be able to fill your order if you require shipping outside of the United Kingdom.
Inventory information is generally available on the website for U.K only. This information can be used to estimate the likelihood that merchandise will be shipped immediately after you place your order. However, we cannot guarantee that a product listed as available will actually ship right away, as inventory can change significantly from day to day. In rare cases, a product may be in stock when you place your order, and sold out by the time your order is processed. However, if an item that is purchasable in your shopping cart when you place your order is sold out at the time your order is processed, we will notify you by email that your order will not be filled and your credit card will not be charged.

In the event a product or service is listed at an incorrect price due to a typographical error, or any other reason, we shall have the right to refuse or cancel any order placed for such product or service at the incorrect price, even if the order has been confirmed and/or your credit card has been charged. In the event that an item is mispriced, we may, at our discretion, either contact you for instructions or cancel your order and notify you of such cancellation. If your credit card has already been charged for the purchase and your order is cancelled, we shall promptly issue a credit to your credit card account in the amount of the incorrect price.
Our wholesale distributors are under no obligation to honor our Website pricing or product promotions.
17. Order Acceptance

We will provide notification to the customer should such limits be applied.
Some situations that may result in your order being cancelled include limitations on quantities available for purchase, inaccuracies or errors in product or pricing information, or problems identified by our credit and fraud avoidance department. We may also require additional verifications or information before accepting any order. We will contact you if all or any portion of your order is cancelled or if additional information is required to accept your order.
