We have decided to arrange the website parts supply as a deferred payment contract. Our contract
to fulfill your order is not crystallized until the full process stated here is complete. This
means we have decided not to take your money when you enter and process your credit card transaction.
We will review your order after you have entered your credit card details and sent them as an order
to us. If we cannot fulfill your order we will contact you either by your telephone number or via
your email address. We will then void your payment transaction. The primary reason for this arrangement
is to give you a better service and not have you believe goods are available when they are not. There
is an explicit second reason. That being, should we have made a gross error of data inputting on our
website be it price (either higher or lower than stated), stock level or specification of goods then
we cannot complete the contract process and the transaction is deemed void.
