- 7.2 If the rate of VAT changes between the date of your Order and the date we take payment for the Product, we will adjust the rate of VAT that you pay to account for such changes.
- 7.3 Incorrect pricing - It is always possible that, despite our best efforts, some of the Products we sell may be incorrectly priced. We will normally check prices before accepting your Order so that, where the Product's correct price at your Order date is less than our stated price at your Order date, we will charge the lower amount. If the Product's correct price at your Order date is higher than the price stated to you, we will contact you for your instructions before we accept your Order.

You must pay us interest together with any overdue amount.

If you continue to use a Product after notifying us of an issue or concern regarding such Product, and cause damage to the Product, we reserve the right to reduce the amount of any refund provided to you to reflect the reduction in value of the Product.
- 12.3.3 if, upon our inspection of the Product, it is apparent the Product cannot be resold or refunded from our suppliers due to your handling, use or alteration of the Product (including your handling, use or alteration of the packaging), you may not receive a refund to reflect the reduction or loss of value in the Product;

- 12.3.8 you may not be entitled to a refund on any custom made, bespoke or personalised Products purchased from us. If you ask us to change the colour, add a design or make any modification to a Product, then the Product shall be deemed a custom made and personalised Product created solely for you.
