8.2 All orders are subject to acceptance and availability. If we are unable to supply you with the Goods in your order due to matters such as unavailability of stock, materials, key staff or an Event Outside our Control or because we have identified a mistake in the description of the Goods or the price stated by us, we will notify you. We will not proceed with the order and will refund any sums you have paid us.
