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 that we are rejecting it. If the pricing error is obvious and unmistakable and could have reasonably been recognized by you as an error, we do not have to provide the Products to you at the incorrect (lower) price.
