Accepting the order and completing the contract
When you place an order to purchase an item your order represents an offer to purchase that item which we may chose to accept or refuse. Your order does not represent a legally binding contract.
All items are offered subject to availability. The information displayed is considered as an invitation to treat, not an offer for sale from Churnet Valley Railway. The completion of the contract between you and us will only occur when we send you the confirmation of dispatch of the items ordered unless we have notified you that we do not accept your order, or you have cancelled it (see below for cancellation procedure).
An order may not be accepted due to one of the following:
·         the item(s) you ordered are out of stock,
·         authorisation cannot be obtained for your payment, or
·         we have found a pricing or product description error or change.
As soon as we discover any of the above we will contact you by email and set out the alternatives available.
