  • The estimated date for delivery of the Products will be set out in the Confirmation E-mail. All delivery dates are estimates only and the time of delivery is not of the essence of this Contract. We are not liable to compensate you in damages or otherwise for non-delivery or late delivery of the Products, or any part of them, for whatever reason or for any direct or indirect loss arising. 
  • If we cannot deliver the whole or part of any Products because of any cause which is not reasonably within our control, the time of delivery shall be extended by a period equal to that during which the cause delaying delivery exists.

Unless you and we agree otherwise, if we cannot deliver your Products within thirty (30) days of the Confirmation E-mail, we will e-mail you to advise you and we will cancel your order.
