You confirm that you are at least 18 years of age or are accessing the Site under the supervision of a parent or legal guardian. You agree that if you are unsure of the meaning of any part of the Terms and Conditions of Sale, you will not hesitate to contact us for clarification prior to making a purchase.


These Terms and Conditions of Sale fully govern the sale of goods and services purchased on this website. No extrinsic evidence, whether oral or written, will be incorporated.

FORMATION OF CONTRACT


Both parties agree that browsing the website and gathering information regarding the services provided by FO does not constitute an offer to sell, but merely an invitation to treat. The parties accept that an offer is only made once you have selected the item you intend to purchase, chosen your  preferred payment method,  proceeded to the checkout and completed the checkout process.


Both parties agree that the acceptance of the offer is not made when FO contacts you by phone or by email to confirm that the order has been placed online. Your offer is only accepted when we dispatch the product to you and inform you either by email or by phone of the dispatch of your ordered product.


Before your order is confirmed, you may be asked to provide additional verifications or information, including but not limited to phone number and address, before we accept the order.


Please note that there are cases when an order cannot be processed for various reasons. The website reserves the right to refuse or cancel any order for any reason at any given time.


ACCEPTANCE OF ELECTRONIC DOCUMENTS


You agree that all agreements, notices, disclosures and other communications that we provide to you electronically satisfy any legal requirement that such communications be in writing.


PAYMENT AND PRICING


We are determined to provide the most accurate pricing information on the website to our users; however, errors may still occur, such as cases when the price of an item is not displayed correctly on the website. As such, we reserve the right to refuse or cancel any order. In the event that an item is mispriced, we may, at our own discretion, either contact you for instructions or cancel your order and notify you of such cancellation.


We shall have the right to refuse or cancel any such orders whether or not the order has been confirmed and your credit/debit card charged. In the event that we are unable to provide the services, we will inform you of this as soon as possible. A full refund will be given where you have already paid for the products.


USE OF VOUCHER CODES


Our website accepts the use of voucher codes for orders placed online. The marketing voucher codes which are accepted on our website entitle you at the time of ordering a product to a saving on the order being placed on our website. Vouchers may also be issued to customers in exchange for advance payments made to us via transfer to our bank accounts for products intended to be purchased on the website.
