ii. By placing an order with us, You represent and warrant that You are legally capable of signing binding agreements.
iii. When You place an order for goods via the Website, your order constitutes an offer to purchase goods from us. Where You order more than one item, your order comprises a series of offers for each item individually.

The Order Confirmations set out the final details of the order which You have submitted to the Website. Please take care when placing your order, as You will be unable to add to or amend your order after We send the Order Confirmations.
b. Order Acceptance
i. All orders are subject to acceptance by Us. For orders for goods that are produced to your specification (such as custom sunglasses) ("Made to Order Goods"), acceptance occurs when We send out our Order Confirmations.

ii. Except where otherwise set out in these Terms of Sale, the price payable by You for the goods is the price given by the Website at the time You place your order. Applicable taxes and the delivery fee will be added at the time You place your order, but will not affect the base price of the goods.

i. After We send You your Order Confirmation e-mail, We will send You a separate Shipping Confirmation email. The Shipping Confirmation email will include a tracking number that You may use to track your order on our delivery service provider's website and obtain an estimated delivery date.
ii. The goods will be delivered by a delivery service provider to the delivery address specified by You during the order process. Once the goods have been delivered to You, You become the owner of those goods and from that point they will be at your risk. This means You will be liable for any subsequent damage, loss or destruction.
