- PRICE AND PAYMENT
12.1. Where to find the price for the product/service. The price of the product/service will be the price indicated on the order pages when you placed your order. We use our best efforts to ensure that the price of product advised to you is correct. However please see clause
12.3 for what happens if we discover an error in the price of the product/service you order.
12.2. Value Added Taxes:
12.2.1.

If the product’s or service’s correct price at your order date is higher than the price stated, we will contact you for your instructions before we accept your order. If we accept and process your order where a pricing error is obvious and unmistakeable and could reasonably have been recognised by you as a mispricing, we may end the contract, refund you any sums you have paid and require the return of any goods provided to you.
