However, if we discover an error in the price of good(s) you ordered, please see clause 8.13 for what happens in this event.
8.10 Prices for our goods may change from time to time, but changes will not affect any order which we have confirmed with a Confirmation Email.
8.11 Our site contains a large number of goods. It is always possible that, despite our best efforts, some of the goods on our site may be incorrectly priced. If we discover an error in the price of the goods you have ordered we will inform you of this error and we will give you the option of continuing to purchase the goods at the correct price or cancelling your order. We will not process your order until we have your instructions. If we are unable to contact you using the contact details you provided during the order process, we will treat the order as cancelled and notify you in writing. Please note that if the pricing error is obvious and unmistakeable and could have reasonably been recognised by you as a mispricing, we do not have to provide the goods to you at the incorrect (lower) price.
