    2. We will endeavour to inform you of the estimated delivery date at the time when We accept your Order, or as soon as practicable after that time. Orders that require importing items from overseas, may take a minimum of 3 months for delivery but we will endeavour to inform you with as much of the details relating to this as possible.
    3. Occasionally Our delivery to you may be affected by an Event Outside Our Control. See clause 9 for Our responsibilities when this happens.

    7. Goods can only be delivered to a person over the age of 18 years old and able to accept delivery (an appropriate person).
