6 AGE OF CONSENT N/A
The Seller warrants that the Goods will at the time of dispatch correspond to the description given by the Seller. Except where the Buyer is dealing as a Consumer, all other warranties, conditions, or terms relating to fitness for purpose, merchantability, or condition of the Goods, whether implied by Statute, common law or otherwise are excluded, and the Buyer is satisfied as to the suitability of the Goods for the Buyer’s purpose.
8.1 Goods supplied within the UK will be dispatched within 3-5 working days (it may take slightly longer during busy periods) by 1st class tracked signed for service and will normally be delivered within 2 – 3 working days of acceptance of order. 8.2 Goods supplied outside the UK will be dispatched within 5-7 working days of acceptance of order (it may take slightly longer during busy periods) and will normally be delivered within 5-7 working days (it may take longer due to random customs check). 8.3 If you purchase a number of titles that are released in the future with varying publication dates, we will send them separately and P&P will be charged accordingly to reflect the additional shipping cost. Time is of the essence in the Seller's performance of its obligations. We will dispatch orders by date of availability and will not be able to collate orders to dispatch together in order to achieve faster delivery times. 8.4 Where a specific delivery date has been agreed, and where this delivery date cannot be met, the Buyer will be notified and given the opportunity to agree a new delivery date or receive a full refund. 8.5 The Seller shall use its reasonable endeavours to meet any date agreed for delivery. In any event time of delivery shall not be of the essence and the Seller shall not be liable for any losses, costs, damages or expenses incurred by the Buyer or any third party arising directly or indirectly out of any failure to meet any estimated delivery date. 8.6 Delivery of the Goods shall be made to the Buyer’s address specified in the order and the Buyer shall make all arrangements necessary to take delivery of the Goods whenever they are tendered for delivery. The Buyer must promptly inform the Seller if and when a delivery address needs to be updated before a subscription renewal or availability of pre-orders. If the Buyer receives an order confirmation email which has an incorrect shipping address, the Seller must be contacted and informed within 48 hours to update. 8.7 Various items will be dispatched from different locations. Items from the same order may be delivered separately. 8.8 Title and risk in the Goods shall pass to the Buyer upon delivery of the Goods. 8.9 If your delivery method is 'Collect from store', books will need to be collected within 3 weeks.

10 FLAWS AND DAMAGES
Whilst we pride ourselves in supplying collectable books in the highest quality, there may be instances where our high standards cannot be met due to the production process. What is considered a flawed or damaged book will be assessed based on the general quality of a title we have received. Production flaws may include but are not limited to imperfect sprayed edges, minimal creasing, wrinkles or dents to the book or dust jacket, small stains, discolouration, light scratches, removable residue, blemished edges, bleeding onto pages, wavy pages. If there is an issue with the book you have received, please provide photographic evidence so that we can assess it and provide a solution.
11 REQUESTED NUMBERS
Where specific numbers are requested for numbered books, we will endeavour to fulfil them as often as possible. Specific numbers cannot always be guaranteed due to a number of factors including but not limited to identical requests, flaws, damages and limitation number. Number requests must be added to your order using the order notes box at checkout. We cannot accept number requests after your order has been confirmed, either by email or telephone.
12 EARLY ACCESS/ BOOKS BOUGHT SECONDHAND
We will grant you access to purchase sequels if you have bought other books by that author or the previous book(s) in the series directly from us. Owning any previous books in the series does not guarantee you an order for any sequel book(s) – this is subject to availability, order confirmation, and whilst stocks last. We will not accept requests for transfer of ownership for books and/or requested numbers which have been bought on the second-hand market. You may request access to sequels at the point when we have offered the sequel book(s) to previous buyers but procuring books via the second-hand market does not guarantee you direct access, a secure order, and is subject to availability.
13 LIMITATION OF LIABILITY
Except as may be implied by law where the Buyer is dealing as a Consumer, in the event of any breach of these Terms and Conditions by the Seller the remedies of the Buyer shall be limited to damages which shall in no circumstances exceed the Price of the Goods and the Seller shall under no circumstances be liable for any indirect, incidental or consequential loss or damage whatever.
No waiver by the Seller (whether express or implied) in enforcing any of its rights under this contract shall prejudice its rights to do so in the future.
15 FORCE MAJEURE
The Seller shall not be liable for any delay or failure to perform any of its obligations if the delay or failure results from events or circumstances outside its reasonable control, including but not limited to acts of God, strikes, lock outs, accidents, war, fire, pandemic, failure of any communications, telecommunications or computer system, breakdown of plant or machinery or shortage or unavailability of raw materials from a natural source of supply, and the Seller shall be entitled to a reasonable extension of its obligations.
If any term or provision of these Terms and Conditions is held invalid, illegal or unenforceable for any reason by any court of competent jurisdiction such provision shall be severed and the remainder of the provisions hereof shall continue in full force and effect as if these Terms and Conditions had been agreed with the invalid illegal or unenforceable provision eliminated.
17 CHANGES TO TERMS AND CONDITIONS
The Seller shall be entitled to alter these Terms and Conditions at any time but this right shall not affect the existing Terms and Conditions accepted by the Buyer upon making a purchase.
18 GOVERNING LAW AND JURISDICTION
