The contract between us (Contract) will only be formed when we send you the Dispatch Confirmation.
The Contract will relate only to the Product whose dispatch we have confirmed in the Dispatch Confirmation. We will not be obliged to supply any other Product which may have been part of your order until the dispatch of such Product has been confirmed in a separate Dispatch Confirmation.

Descriptions & Corrections

However, you should be aware that the colours and appearance of the Product may vary from the way they appear on the screen. (due to contrast, hue settings on your monitor etc) and you will need to pay for the return delivery cost in the same manner that the Product was shipped to you for colour related issues.
If you have any doubt about the colour or suitability of the Product, please visit our gallery at Quay Art in Padstow where we can arrange for you to view the Product prior to purchase instead.

In the event that there is any dispute between us in relation to this issue, you agree that until the matter is resolved, an interim injunction will be an appropriate remedy. An Interim injunction is a court order, which would prevent any further use or distribution of the image that we are concerned about, until a final court hearing where the court will make a decision on all the facts.
