If, for any reason, there is a problem with collecting payment from your credit / debit card or other chosen payment method after we have confirmed receipt of your order, we will not be obliged to despatch your order. Additionally, on some occasions, we may be unable to process an order. This may be due to: the item being out of stock or no longer available, your payment being declined, our identification of a pricing error or product description error or an unspecified technical error. If you are sure you are using a valid form of payment, please try again or use a different payment method.
As part of our policy to protect against the fraudulent use of credit / debit cards, we conduct security checks on all orders received. These checks can take various forms and may involve contacting you by telephone before we process your order. We may also procure the services of various credit rating and fraud prevention companies and we may share details of your order with them for the sole purpose of detecting and preventing fraudulent use of your payment cards.
As part of our policy to protect against the fraudulent use of credit cards, we conduct security checks on all our orders. Where vouchers have been used as part tender for an order and the credit / debit card used in conjunction fails fraud checking, the redeemed value against that voucher will not be reversed.
