2.1 These Conditions (as updated by us from time to time) shall set out the entire agreement. No variation of these conditions shall be binding unless agreed in writing by us and attached hereto. You will be subject to the policies and terms in place at the time you order the product/services from us unless such change is required by law or government or regulatory authority (in which case it will apply to any orders you have previously placed). These Conditions apply to all purchases you make from us at any time, regardless of how the order is made.
2.2 Our employees and agents are not authorised to make any representation concerning the goods/services unless confirmed by us to you in writing. In entering into a contract, you acknowledge that you have not relied on any such representations which are not so confirmed.
2.3 We reserve the right to withdraw any offer or special promotions without notice. In the event that you have already placed an order under the conditions that we have withdrawn we will provide you with a full refund for any money received.
Orders and Specifications
3.1 Your order represents an offer to purchase the goods/services which is accepted by us when we issue you with written acceptance of the order. By placing an order, you warrant that you are at least 16 years old. All orders are subject to availability and on a first-come first-served basis as unfortunately we are unable to reserve a registration. We reserve the right to refuse to accept an order.
3.2 We shall not be liable for costs and expenses incurred by you due to inaccurate information submitted by you.
3.3 We reserve the right to make changes in the specification of the goods/services which are required to conform with any applicable statutory or EU requirements.

4.2 While we try to ensure that all prices on our website are accurate, errors may occur. If we discover an error in the price of goods/services you have ordered (whether this by our error or an error by any third party), we will inform you as soon as possible and give you the option of re-confirming the order at the correct price or cancelling it. If we are unable to contact you, we will treat the order as cancelled. If you have already paid for the goods and the order is subsequently cancelled, you will receive a full refund.
4.3 In the event that we are unable to supply the goods/services at the price or specification stated in the order, we will where possible notify you of any changes and where the goods/services ordered are not available we may offer you substitute goods/services whereby you will be asked to re-confirm your order at the new price and/or specification. You are not obliged to accept any substitute goods/services and will be entitled to receive a full refund if you confirm that the substitute goods/services are not acceptable.

5.3 In the event that a cheque or credit card payment is dishonoured by your bank or credit card provider, they (being your bank, credit card provider or our debt collection company) may charge a fee. Where we incur any fee or liability as a result of a dishonoured payment, you will be liable to reimburse us in full for the amount we have incurred.
5.4 All credit and charge card holders are subject to validation checks and authorisation by the card issuer. If the issuer of your payment card refuses to authorise payment to us, we will not be liable for any delay in providing goods/services. In addition, in the interests of preventing fraudulent use of credit, debit and charge cards, AGRADEMUSIC may validate the names, addresses and other information supplied during the order process against commercially available records (e.g Electoral Roll data, credit reference services). We reserve the right to instruct a third party to complete these checks. By ordering from our website, you consent to such checks being made. We may need to contact you by letter, telephone, SMS or email to verify details before we are able to process your order or we may be unable to accept your order and we shall not be liable for any delay this may cause. All information provided will be treated confidentially.
