Once you have submitted your order details, you will see an on-screen acknowledgement that your Product(s) has been placed in the 'Order History' area of your account. You will receive a receipt for your payment and an acknowledgement of your order by email. However, please note that this does not mean that your order has been accepted. Our acceptance of your order will take place as described in paragraph 12.4.1e).

For registered users we keep a record of the orders that you place with us in the 'My Orders' area, which you can view by logging-in to your account.
12.4.2. If we cannot accept your order. If we are unable to supply you with a Product, for example because that Product is not in stock or no longer available or the Driving Experience has been cancelled or because of an error in the price on our Site as referred to in paragraph 12.7.5, we will inform you of this by email and we will not process your order. If you have already paid for the Products, we will refund you the full amount as soon as possible, by the same method in which the payment was originally made.
12.5. YOUR RIGHTS TO MAKE CHANGES TO YOUR ORDER
Changes to your order. If you wish to make a change to the Product you have ordered please contact us. We will let you know if the change is possible. If it is possible we will let you know about any changes to the price of the Product, the timing of supply or anything else which would be necessary as a result of your requested change and ask you to confirm whether you wish to go ahead with the change.

This is charged at £7 per order and all orders placed before 2pm should be delivered within one working day, except weekends and bank holidays, or where a longer lead time has been specified due to stock availability;
c) for all orders above £100, the Express and Signed For delivery will automatically be pre-selected; and

Prices for our Products may change from time to time, but changes will not affect any order which we have confirmed with an Order Confirmation.

12.7.5. What happens if we got the price wrong? We use our best efforts to ensure that the prices of Products are correct at the time when the relevant information was entered onto the system. However, the Site contains a large number of Products and it is always possible that, despite our best efforts, some of the Products on the Site may be incorrectly priced. We will normally check prices as part of our dispatch procedures so that:
a) where the Product's correct price is less than the price stated on the Site at the time you placed your order, we will charge the lower amount when dispatching the Products to you; and
b) where the Product's correct price is higher than the price stated on the Site at the time you placed your order, we do not have to provide the Products to you at the incorrect (lower) price as the Contract between us, formed when we send you the Order Confirmation, will not yet have been formed. We will contact you in writing as soon as possible to inform you of this error and we will give you the option of continuing to purchase the Product at the correct (higher) price or cancel 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.
