If we cancel an order we will advise you prior to the dispatch of goods and refund any money you've paid in full. You also agree that we may replace an item you ordered with a substantially identical item if we consider it appropriate to do so. For example if you order an item of a particular colour, and that colour is not available, we may substitute an item of another colour. Or if you order an item of a particular make and model, and that model has been superseded, we may replace it with the new model. We also reserve the right to substitute any delivery method selected by you at checkout with a different delivery method if we consider it appropriate to do so. For example if you select "express post" but express post is not available in your area or is otherwise not reasonably practical (for example because of the size or shape of the item ordered, or because of where you live or where the item is being dispatched from) we may substitute it with the most practical delivery method in the circumstances.
