Your Status

By placing an order through our site, you warrant that:
You are legally capable of entering into binding contracts; and
You are at least 18 years of age; and

Payment

Visa Credit, Visa Debit, Visa Electron and Mastercard are accepted as methods of payment. All transactions are in pounds sterling.

Unavailability

In the event that a product is unavailable for whatever reason, we will contact you to ask you whether you would like us to supply a suitable alternative product. We will not supply you with an alternative product unless we receive instruction from you that you wish us to do so. If  you opt not to purchase an alternative product, we will refund the full value of the product and any applicable carriage charges.

Risk and Title

The Products will be at your risk from the time of delivery. Ownership of the Products will only pass to you when we receive full payment of all sums due in respect of the Products, including delivery charges.

Pricing

All prices quoted are inclusive of VAT. The VAT element of each purchase is clearly detailed on the ARMD invoice.

Our site contains a large number of Products and it is always possible that, despite our best efforts, some of the Products listed on our site may be incorrectly priced.  We will normally verify prices as part of our dispatch procedures so that, where a Product's correct price is less than our stated price, we will charge the lower amount when dispatching the Product to you.  If a Product's correct price is higher than the price stated on our site, we will normally, at our discretion, either contact you for instructions before dispatching the Product, or reject your order and notify you of such rejection.  We are under no obligation to provide the Product to you at the incorrect (lower) price, even after we have sent you a Dispatch Confirmation, if the pricing error is obvious and unmistakeable and could have reasonably been recognised by you as a mis-pricing.

Guarantees

ARMD follows the manufacturer's policy on guarantees, details of which will be included with the product.

If a product is faulty and under guarantee you should follow the procedures detailed below.

Import Duty

If you order Products from our site for delivery outside the UK, they may be subject to import duties and taxes which are levied when the delivery reaches the specified destination.  You will be responsible for payment of any such import duties and taxes.  Please note that we have no control over these charges and cannot predict their amount.  Please contact your local customs office for further information before placing your order.
