The notification of receipt is not a confirmation, that the order has been accepted.

2. Description and Price of Goods
We have taken every care to describe and show all items as accurately as possible, and with accordance to the manufacturer's specification. Despite this, a slight variation in items may occur. We provide you with product information on the website. If there is anything, which you do not understand, or if you wish to obtain further information, please contact us via email: firstname.lastname@example.org

Every effort is made to ensure the prices shown on the website are accurate at the time of placing an order. If an item has been under priced in error, we will contact you and offer the following three options:
1. Placement of a new order at the correct price of the goods;
2. Cancellation of the whole order;
3. Cancellation of your order for the mis-priced goods and reconfirmation of your order for the correctly priced goods.
If you do not choose one of the three available options within 14 days, your order will be cancelled, or the under priced item(s) will be removed from your order. Any payment received from you with respect to the cancelled item(s) will be credited back to your original method of payment.
If, within 3 days of accepting your order, we discover some, but not all of the items, are unavailable*, we will contact you and offer you the option of amending your order to substitute the unavailable item(s) with applicable alternative goods. If you do not choose a substitute alternative within 3 working days, and the unavailable items total 20% or less of the number of items ordered the unavailable item(s) will be removed from your order and we will dispatch the available goods. Any payment received from you with respect to the cancelled item(s) will be credited back to your original method of payment. Celtic Earth Spirit will not substitute an item without contacting you first regarding your order(s).
Please note that our suppliers import goods from all over the world, as well as locally. We make every effort to keep the supplies as uninterrupted as possible. Due to the logistics of stock supply, we occasionally find an item that has become unavailable.
Where possible recycled packaging is used to send orders out - we do not believe in using more resources than necessary.

If the couriers are unable to complete a delivery due to nobody being present, a calling card will be left asking you to contact them directly to arrange a re-delivery. If you do not contact the couriers within 2 days of receiving this card, the goods will be returned to our Despatch Depot and a re-delivery charge may be applicable to your order. In the event of charges applying, they will be the same as those charged for the initial despatch.
