2.1 MAKING A PURCHASE
Our site is designed to make it user-friendly. Click on WATERPROOF GUIDE to find your problem and our solution or simply browse our site and view our product line.

When you are ready, simply click on "Checkout" and fill in the information needed to complete your order.
2.2 VALIDATION OF ORDER
Your order becomes official once you click on CONFIRM ORDER on our website www.arcane-industries.co.uk The click on CONFIRM ORDER validates both these terms and conditions which will prevail over any and all other specific terms and conditions and the customers' order and will bear the validity date of this electronic signature.
When your confirmation of order is received, this is to indicate that we have received your order. It does not indicate that a contract exists between us. We will indicate acceptance of your order, and hence a contract between us, when we confirm your order and your payment.
This confirmation confirms availability of products and the price quoted at the time the customer confirmed the order. This term is to protect against any errors due to technical problems with the website.
If for one reason or another, the price of the goods ordered was not valid at the time of your order, we will contact you to inform you of the error and ensure that the any change in price is acceptable to you.
Likewise, if we are unable to supply a particular product within normal delays and for any reason (out of stock, discontinued, etc.), you will be informed and if your account has been debited at this time, it will be credited for the amount debited if you wish to cancel your order at this time.
An order by a business customer becomes irrevocable upon our website's (www.arcane-industries.co.uk) confirmation which will correspond to the date of acceptance of payment via your credit card or Paypal or any other payment organisation indicated on our website arcane-industries.co.uk.
2.3 Electronic Signature
A click on CONFIRM ORDER is the electronic signature of the customer validating the customer's acceptance of these terms and conditions and the customer's order. This signature has the same binding value as the customer's signature in writing.
