You agree that Your order is an offer to buy, under these Terms, the Products listed in Your order and there is no binding contract between You and Flymo until the order is accepted by Flymo. Whilst Flymo endeavours to supply all ordered Products, note that Flymo is free not to accept Your order for any reason, including where Products are no longer available.
2.1.2.In placing the order, You will be requested to provide information relating to You and Your order, such as contact details, delivery address and information relating to the selected payment method (e.g. credit card number)..
2.1.3.Following the placing of Your order, You will receive an order acceptance email, which details the Products You have ordered. At this point, a contract will come into existence between You and us. Please store Your order number and date for future references.
2.1.4.Once Your order has been processed and accepted by Flymo and Your Product is ready to be shipped, Flymo will send You a notice of dispatch by email, text or phone call.

If the quantity of Products that you have ordered is partially not in stock, we will deliver the Product(s) in the quantity available and we will cancel the remaining part of the order. If we are unable to accept Your order (in full or in part), we will inform You of this by telephone or in writing and will not charge You for the Product. As mentioned, this might be because the Product is out of stock, because of unexpected limits on our resources which we could not reasonably plan for, because a credit reference we have obtained for You does not meet our minimum requirements, because we have identified an error in the price or description of the Product or because we are unable to meet a delivery deadline You have specified.
2.2. We will assign an order number to Your order and tell You what it is when we accept Your order. It will help us if You can tell us the order number whenever You contact us about Your order.
2.3. The e-Store is solely for the promotion of our Products in the UK. Unfortunately, we do not deliver to addresses outside the UK.
2.4. The images of the Products on the e-Store are for illustrative purposes only.

2.5. If You wish to make a change to the Product You have ordered please contact us. We will let You know if the change is possible. If it is possible we will let You know about any changes to the price of the Product, the timing of supply or anything else which would be necessary as a result of Your requested change and ask You to confirm whether You wish to go ahead with the change. If we cannot make the change or the consequences of making the change are unacceptable to You, You may want to end the contract.
3.1. Flymo will arrange for shipment of the Products to You by using the shipment option selected by You in the checkout process.

If Products are not available in the ordered quantity, we will provide you with such lower quantity and we will cancel the remaining ordered quantity. We will inform You of such lower quantity by telephone or in writing and you may cancel the order in its entirety in accordance with section 5.1.
3.3. The delivery will be completed when Flymo delivers the Products to the address You specified during the order process. If no one is available at the address to take delivery, reasonable measures will be used to try and effect delivery. You acknowledge that You may receive information about rearranging delivery or collection of the Products directly from our sub-contractors (i.e. our transportation partners).You accept to reimburse Flymo for any additional shipment/handling costs caused as a consequence of Your failure to take delivery in accordance with the agreed terms for delivery.
