Whether or not Varkbek accepts an order depends on the availability of Goods, correctness of the information relating to the Goods (including without limitation the price) and receipt of payment or payment authorisation by Varkbek for the Goods.
- NOTE: Varkbek will indicate the acceptance of your order by delivering the Goods to you or allowing you to collect them, and only at that point will an agreement of sale between you and Varkbek come into effect (the “Sale”).This is regardless of any communication from Varkbek stating that your order or payment has been confirmed. Varkbek will indicate the rejection of your order (by Varkbek itself) by cancelling it and, as soon as possible thereafter, refunding you for any amount already paid.

You cannot hold Varkbek or a Third Party Seller (if applicable) liable if such Goods are not available or are not available at the particular price when you complete or attempt to complete the purchase cycle at a later stage.
- You acknowledge that stock of all Goods on offer is limited and that pricing may change at any time without notice to you. In the case of Goods for sale by Varkbek, Varkbek will take all reasonable efforts to monitor stock levels and ensure that when stock is no longer available, that offers thereof are discontinued on the Website.

When Goods are no longer available after you have placed an order, Varkbek will notify you and you will be entitled to a refund of any amount already paid by you for such Goods.
- In the case of Goods for sale by a Third Party Seller, Varkbek relies on inventory information supplied by the relevant Third Party Seller and Varkbek accordingly bears no liability for any inaccuracies in the information supplied to it. Consequently, should you order any Goods from a Third Party Seller which are in fact sold-out, any resulting dispute should be resolved between you and the relevant Third Party Seller, your respective rights and obligations being as set out in these Terms and Conditions.
