Unless we have notified you that we do not accept your order or you have cancelled your order in accordance with the cancellation section of the site, our acceptance of your order and the completion of the contract between you and us will take place when we have dispatched the goods ordered by you.

An exchange can be made for an item of same or lower value. Please specify the item you wish to exchange for when you return the product.
