The contract is formed between you and us through:
- Our shopping pages will lead you through the steps needed to take to place an order with us. Our order process allows you to check and amend any errors before entering checkout;
- Please take the time to check the details of your order at each stage of the order process and before clicking “Pay for My Order”, as you will not be able to make any changes to your order after this point;
- After placing an order, you will receive an e-mail from hmc acknowledging that we have received your order. Please note that this does not mean that your order has been accepted. Your order constitutes an offer to us to buy a product. All orders are subject to availability and acceptance by us.
- We will confirm such acceptance to you by sending you an e-mail that confirms that the product has been dispatched. The contract between us will only be formed when we send you the dispatch confirmation.
Please note that Items are subject to availability. As there is a delay between the time when the order is placed and the time when the order is processed, the stock position relating to particular items may change. If an Item becomes out of stock, we will notify you as soon as possible and you will be refunded where we have already taken payment.
We reserve the right to refuse an order for example if the Item you have ordered is unavailable or out of stock, if we are unable to obtain authorisation of payment, if there is an error in the product information including price or promotion or if we suspect fraudulent activity.
