9.5 You own the Products once We have received payment in full, including of all applicable delivery charges.
9.6 If We fail to deliver the Products, Our liability is limited to the cost of obtaining replacement Products of a similar description and quality in the cheapest market available, less the price of the Products.

9.7 If You fail to take delivery within 14 days after the date of the Dispatch Confirmation, We may resell part of, or all the Products and after deducting any reasonable storage and selling costs, account to You for any excess over the price of the Products or charge You for any shortfall below the price of the Products.
9.8 Occasionally Our delivery to You may be affected by an Event Outside Our Control. See clause 16 for Our responsibilities when this happens.
10. INTERNATIONAL DELIVERY
10.1 Delivery for outside the UK is available on certain products (“International Delivery”). International Delivery is charged in accordance with the size and destination address of the order as per the delivery cost at the time of order. However, should the volumetric weight be heavier when the parcel has been packed up We reserve the right to ask for additional funds to cover the cost of the delivery which You shall be liable for.
10.2 We use different couriers for International Deliveries depending on size, weight and number of parcels, and it will also depend if You have chosen next day delivery.
10.3 All delivery charges are subject to change depending on the delivery country, the size and the weight of Your parcel.

10.5 If You are ordering products for International Delivery to someone else, please make sure they are aware that they will be responsible for these additional charges. We have no control over these charges and cannot predict what they may be. We recommend that You check the import fees in the country You would like to send to before ordering products to be delivered there.
10.6 We will contact You prior to Dispatch Confirmation should Your order attract any additional charges for delivery, import taxes or otherwise, and You will be required to pay any additional charges prior to Dispatch Confirmation.
10.7 You must comply with all applicable laws and regulations of the country for which the Products are destined. We will not be liable or responsible if You break any such law.
11. PRICE OF PRODUCTS AND DELIVERY CHARGES
11.1 The prices of the Products will be as quoted on Our Site at the time You submit Your order. We take all reasonable care to ensure that the prices of Products are correct at the time when the relevant information was entered onto the system. However, please see clause 11.5 for what happens if We discover an error in the price of Products You ordered.
11.2 Prices for Our Products may change from time to time, but changes will not affect any order You have already placed and has been accepted by Us.
11.3 The price of Products excludes VAT (where applicable) at the applicable current rate chargeable in the UK for the time being. However, if the rate of VAT changes between the date of Your order and the date of delivery, We will adjust the VAT You pay, unless You have already paid for the Products in full before the change in VAT takes effect.
11.4 The price of the Products does not include delivery charges. Our delivery charges are as advised to You during the check-out process, before You confirm Your order. Delivery charges are subject to change and may vary dependent on size, weight, number of parcels or the destination for delivery. As a result, Our choice of courier may vary. To see a full list of delivery charges, delivery timescales and couriers, please visit Our Shipping and Returns page.
11.5 We sell a large number of Products through Our site. It is always possible that, despite Our reasonable efforts, some of the Products on Our site may be incorrectly priced. We will normally check prices as part of Our dispatch procedures so that:
11.5.1 where the Products' correct price is less than the price stated on Our site, We will charge the lower amount when dispatching the Products to You; and
11.5.2 if the Products' correct price is higher than the price stated on Our site, We will contact You as soon as possible to inform You of this error and We will give You the option of continuing to purchase the Products at the correct price or cancelling Your order. We will not process Your order until We have Your instructions. If We are unable to contact You using the contact details You provided during the order process, We will treat the order as cancelled and notify You in writing. However, if We mistakenly accept and process Your order where a pricing error is obvious and unmistakeable and could reasonably have been recognised by You as a mispricing, We may cancel supply of the Products and refund You any sums You have paid.
