7. On receipt of your order, we will send you an order acknowledgment email detailing the products ordered. Your receipt of an electronic or other form of order confirmation does not signify our acceptance of your order, nor does it constitute confirmation of our offer to sell. We reserve the right to reject any order you place with us, and/or to limit quantities on any order, without giving any reason.

10. Any dates quoted for the delivery of the goods are approximate only and we shall not be liable for any delay in delivery of the goods however caused. Time for delivery shall not be of the essence unless previously agreed by the seller in writing. The goods may be delivered by us in advance of the quoted delivery date upon giving reasonable notice to the buyer.
11. Where delivery of the goods is to be made by us in bulk, we reserve the right to deliver up to 5 per cent more or 5 per cent less than the quantity ordered without any adjustment in the price, and the quantity so delivered shall be deemed to be the quantity ordered.
12. Where the goods are to be delivered in installments, each delivery shall constitute a separate contract and failure by us to deliver any one or more of the installments in accordance with these conditions or any conditions or any claim by the buyer in respect of any one or more installments shall not entitle the buyer to treat the contract as a whole as repudiated.
13. If we fail to deliver the goods for any reason other than the cause beyond our reasonable control or the buyer’s fault, and we are accordingly liable to the buyer, our liability shall be limited to the excess (if any) of the cost to the buyer (in the cheapest available market) of similar goods to replace those not delivered over the price of the goods.
14. A good delivery will be assumed unless:
(a) A qualified signature on the consignment of delivery document is not received;
