Terms and conditions
Policy: It has always been our policy to treat our customers in exactly in the way we like to be treated ourselves. Our toes curl at the sight of small print, but it appears that not only to add to our creditability but to comply with new legislation (EC Distance Selling Directive) we are required to offer you our own ‘large print’ version. You should note that your statutory rights under the current consumer protection laws are not affected (more probably enhanced).
