6. Goods, Pricing and Availability
6.1 We make all reasonable efforts to ensure that all descriptions and images of Goods available from Us on Our Site match the actual Goods. Please note:
a) Images of Goods are for illustrative purposes only. There may be slight variations in colour between the image of a product and the actual product due to differences in a computer or device displays and lighting conditions;
b) Images or descriptions of packaging are for illustrative purposes only and the actual packaging may vary OR
c) Due to the nature of our Goods, there may be a small variance in weight, between the actual Goods and the description.
6.2 Please note that Para 6.1 does not exclude Our responsibility for mistakes due to Our negligence. It refers only to minor variations in the correct Goods, not to different Goods. If you receive Goods that are not as described, please refer to Para 12.
6.3 Minor changes may, from time to time, be made to certain Goods between your Order being placed and Us processing that Order and dispatching the Goods, for example, to reflect changes in relevant laws and regulatory requirements, or to address particular technical or security issues. Any such changes will not change any main characteristics of the Goods and will not normally affect your use of those Goods. However, if any change is made that would affect your use of the Goods, suitable information will be provided to you.
7.1 We make all reasonable efforts to ensure that prices shown on Our Site are correct. We may change prices from time to time. Changes in price will not affect any Order that you have already placed. If applicable, the price will change automatically, with the rate of VAT at the time of placing the Order.

If the correct price is lower than that shown when you make your Order, We will simply charge you the lower price.
7.3 If the correct price is higher than that shown when you make your Order, We will give you the option to purchase the Goods at the correct price or to cancel your Order (or the affected part of it).

If you do not respond within 14 days, We will treat your Order as cancelled and inform you of the cancellation in writing.
