All contracts shall be deemed to be formed in England. IT IS IMPORTANT TO NOTE THEREFORE THAT WE WILL NOT BE OBLIGED TO SELL YOU GOODS IF, FOR EXAMPLE, THE GOODS ARE NOT AVAILABLE OR THEY HAVE EITHER BEEN INCORRECTLY PRICED OR DESCRIBED ON THE WEBSITE. We also reserve the right:

3. Order Processing
Unless we specify otherwise we will aim for the goods ordered by you to be delivered to you within 30 days of our accepting your order.
However, without prejudice to the statutory rights afforded to consumers under English or other applicable law, we accept no liability for any failure to dispatch goods as a result of our inability to do so, or our decision not to dispatch them as permitted by these terms and conditions, provided we take all reasonable care and steps to inform you by e-mail within 7 days of placement of your order that the goods will not be dispatched. If we do not accept or subsequently cannot, or do not, fulfil your order, we will notify you by e-mail and your payment card will be credited with the full amount of your order if previously debited by us.

Unless you inspect the goods promptly upon arrival and notify us at wwwChrisCarson.co.uk of any defects to them, the goods shall be deemed to have been accepted by you on delivery.
