However, the Company cannot guarantee the availability of stock.

You may not hold the Company liable in the event that the Company rejects an Order.

If the Company does not receive such payment authorisation, your Order will be cancelled. You warrant that you are fully authorised to use the relevant credit card supplied for the purpose of paying for the Products. You also warrant that your credit card has sufficient available funds to cover all the costs incurred as a result of the services used on the Website.
