Conclusion of sales and availability of stock
Registered users may place orders for Goods, which Solomons Fishing may accept or reject.
Whether or not Solomons Fishing accepts an order depends on the availability of Goods,
correctness of the information relating to the Goods (including without limitation the price) and
receipt of payment or payment authorization by Solomons Fishing for the Goods.
NOTE: Solomons Fishing will indicate the acceptance of your order by delivering the Goods to
you or allowing you to collect them, and only at that point will an agreement of sale between you
and Solomons Fishing come into effect (the “Sale”). This is regardless of any communication
from Solomons Fishing stating that your order or payment has been confirmed. Solomons
Fishing will indicate the rejection of your order (by Solomons Fishing itself ) by cancelling it and,
as soon as possible thereafter, refunding you for any amount already paid.

you do so before receiving a dispatch or delivery notice. After delivery or your collection of the
Goods, you may return the Goods only in accordance with the Returns Policy

constitute an order for such Goods, and as such, Goods may be removed from the shopping
basket if stock is no longer available or the price thereof might change without notice to you.
