2.2 You are solely responsible for the accuracy of your order. Please take care to check and amend any order before submitting your order to us.
2.3 Your order is an offer to buy from us. All orders are subject to acceptance by us. After you place an order, you will receive an email from us acknowledging that we have received your order.

If you have already paid for the Products, we will refund you the full amount as soon as possible.
3. Delivery and Risk of Loss
3.1 Unless otherwise agreed in writing by The PBC Foundation, delivery of the Products will take place at the Delivery Address specified in the ordering process.
3.2 The Products will be your responsibility from the completion of delivery. You own the Products once we have received payment in full, including all applicable delivery charges.
3.3 Any date specified by The PBC Foundation for delivery of the Products is intended to be an estimate, and time of delivery is not of the essence of the Contract.

If due to exceptional circumstances we are unable to fulfil your order within a reasonable time period, we will email you or contact you to let you know.
3.4 Where you have opted for delivery of the Products in the UK to by normal Royal Mail service, The PBC Foundation shall not be liable for any non-delivery of the Products unless written notice is given to us within five (5) days of the date when the Products would, in the normal course of events, have been received.

(ii) the Products will be deemed to have been delivered; and
(iii) The PBC Foundation may store the goods until delivery, whereupon you will be liable for all related costs and expenses (including, without limitation, storage and insurance).
3.7 The PBC Foundation reserves the right to defer the date of delivery or to cancel the Contract in the case of any strike, lockout, disorder, fire, explosion, accident or stoppage of or affecting The PBC Foundation's business or work which is beyond our reasonable control and which prevents or hinders the delivery of the Products.
