4.1 Your order constitutes an offer to us to buy a Product. All orders are subject to acceptance by us, and we will confirm such acceptance to you by sending you an e-mail that confirms that we have accepted your order (the "Order Confirmation"). The contract between us and you ("Contract") will only be formed when we send you the Order Confirmation.
4.2 We reserve the right to cancel orders that we believe to be fraudulent or constitute a misuse of a promotional or marketing activity or where an error has occurred including but not limited to errors relating to pricing.
5.1 Please note that in some cases, we accept orders as agents on behalf of third-party sellers. The resulting legal contract is between you and that third-party seller, and is subject to the terms and conditions of that third-party seller, which they will advise you of directly. You should carefully review their terms and conditions applying to the transaction.

We will endeavour to deliver your Products within the delivery times as set out in the Order Confirmation or, if no delivery date is specified, then within a reasonable period from the date of the Order Confirmation, unless there are exceptional circumstances. If a product is found to be incorrectly addressed by us, we will be responsible for the re-delivery or replacement of the product or refund of your payment for the product. If you have given an incorrect or insufficient address, we will not give a refund of your payment for the product, but will re-deliver or replace the product provided that all costs associated with, and responsibility for, correcting the delivery will be borne by you.
8.1 The Products will be at your risk from the time of delivery to you.
8.2 Title and ownership of the Products will only pass to you when we receive full payment of all sums due in relation to the Products, including delivery charges.

9.2 These prices include GST but exclude delivery costs, which will be added to the total amount due as indicated or as set calculated by our shipping calculator.
9.3 Prices are liable to change at any time, but changes will not affect orders in respect of which we have already sent you an Order Confirmation.
9.4 It is possible that, despite our reasonable efforts, some of the Products listed on our site may be incorrectly priced. We usually verify prices as part of our dispatch procedures, and where a Product's correct price is less than the stated price on our site, we will charge the lower amount when dispatching the Product to you. If a Product's correct price is higher than the price stated on our site, we will , at our discretion, either contact you for instructions before dispatching the Product, or reject your order and notify you of such rejection.
9.5 We are under no obligation to provide the Product to you at the incorrect (lower) price, even after we have sent you an Order Confirmation, if the pricing error is obvious and unmistakeable and could have reasonably been recognised by you as a mis-pricing.
9.6 All transactions are billed in New Zealand dollars. If you are paying by credit card you must use either Visa or MasterCard. Your card is debited by ANZ Bank at the time of processing the purchase. If you are placing an order on behalf of an educational institution or business you may be eligible to open an account.
