  • by posting a completed copy of the HOTcraze Order form (available on request) to HOTcraze, The Old Fire Station, Artillery Way, Discovery Park (Gate A), Kent CT13 9FL UK

• When you place an Order for a Product in any of the ways described above ("Order") you are offering to buy it for the price stated, subject to these Terms.

• When you place your Order online we will send you an email to confirm that we have received it. This email confirmation will be produced automatically so that you have confirmation of your Order details. The fact that you receive an automatic confirmation does not necessarily mean that we will be able to meet your Order. Once we have sent the confirmation email we will then check availability and contact you with a further email. If the Product is available and the details of the Order are correct, this email will be deemed an acceptance and will specify delivery details and confirm the price of the Products purchased. If the Product is not available we will also let you know by email.

• HOTcraze may cancel any sale and not supply Products if it is reasonable to do so and may change or discontinue the availability of Products at any time at its sole discretion. If an Order is cancelled, any payment made for the Products will be refunded in full. This does not affect your Statutory Rights.

• All new Orders are deemed separate and each is treated individually.


Price

• The price for each Product is shown on HOTcraze.co.uk and includes V.A.T at 20%.

• We always try to make sure that the prices on HOTcraze.co.uk are accurate but errors may occur. If we discover an error in pricing of the Products in your Order we will inform you as soon as possible using the contact details you supplied us with. We will then give you the option of reconfirming your Order at the correct price or cancelling it. (If we are unable to reach you we will treat the Order as cancelled). If an Order is cancelled, any payment made for the Products will be refunded in full.

• You will be notified of the delivery costs automatically before you submit your credit card details, based on the delivery address you specify.
