Terms of Sale

In order to contract with the Bookstore, you must be over 18 years of age and possess a valid credit or debit card issued by a bank acceptable to us. The Bookstore retains the right to refuse any request made by you.


By placing an order on this Site, you are offering to purchase a product(s) or services subject to the following terms and conditions. All orders are subject to availability and confirmation of the order price. If your order is accepted, we will inform you by email and we will confirm the identity of the party which you have contracted with. Shipping times may vary according to availability and subject to any delays resulting from postal delays or force of nature for which we will not be responsible.


In some cases, sales may be through a third-party, Linked Site. Where a contract is made with a third-party, Linked Site, the Bookstore is not acting as either agent or principal and the contract is made between yourself and that third-party and will be subject to the terms of sale which they supply you. When placing an order, you undertake that all details you provide to us are true and accurate, and that you are an authorized user of the credit or debit card to cover the cost of the goods.

 

Contract Formation

When you place an order, you will receive an acknowledgement email confirming receipt of your order: this email will only be an acknowledgement and will not constitute acceptance of your order. A contract between us will not be formed until we send the goods to you. Only those goods listed in the confirmation email sent at the time of order placement will be included in the contract formed.

 

Pricing and Availability

While we try and ensure that all details, descriptions and prices which appear on this website are accurate, errors may occur. Delivery costs will be charged in addition; such additional charges are clearly displayed where applicable and included in the 'Total Cost '. All prices advertised are subject to change.

 

Payment

Upon receiving your payment, we carry out a standard authorization check on your payment card to ensure there are sufficient funds to fulfill the transaction. Your card will be charged or debited upon authorization being received. The monies received upon the debiting of your card shall be treated as a deposit against the value of the goods you wish to purchase. Once the goods have been shipped and you have been sent a confirmation email, the monies paid as a deposit shall be used as consideration for the value of goods you have purchased as listed in the confirmation email.

 

Liability

The material displayed on this Site is provided without any guarantees, conditions or warranties as to its accuracy. Unless expressly stated to the contrary to the fullest extent permitted by law the Bookstore command its suppliers, content providers and advertisers hereby expressly exclude all conditions, warranties and other terms which might otherwise be implied by statute, common law or the law of equity and shall not be liable for any damages whatsoever, including but without limitation to any direct, indirect, special, consequential, punitive or incidental damages, or damages for loss of use, profits, data or other intangibles, damage to goodwill or reputation, or the cost of procurement of substitute goods and services, arising out of or related to the use, inability to use, performance or failures of this Site or the Linked Sites and any materials posted thereon, irrespective of whether such damages were foreseeable or arise in contract, tort, equity, restitution, by statute, at common law or otherwise. This does not affect the Bookstore’s liability for death or personal injury arising from its negligence, fraudulent misrepresentation, misrepresentation as to a fundamental matter or any other liability which cannot be excluded or limited under applicable law.

 

Invalidity

If any part of the Terms of Use is unenforceable (including any provision in which we exclude our liability to you) the enforce-ability of any other part of the Terms of Use will not be affected and all other clauses will remain in full force and effect. So far as possible where any clause/sub-clause or part of a clause/sub-clause can be severed to render the remaining part valid, the clause shall be interpreted accordingly. Alternatively, you agree that the clause shall be rectified and interpreted in such a way that closely resembles the original meaning of the clause /sub-clause as is permitted by law.

 

Waiver

If you breach any of these conditions and we take no action, we will still be entitled to use our rights and remedies in any other situation where you breach these conditions.

 

Entire Agreement

Any waiver of any provision of the Terms of Use will be effective only if in writing and signed by an authorized Bookstore authority.
