1. While the vendor makes every effort to ensure that all items sold on the website are in stock, it may occur that an item ordered by a purchaser might not be in stock.

2. Should this occur, the vendor offers the following options which shall be communicated via email, telephone call or another suitable method:

a. An alternative but substantially similar item will be offered. The item may be of a different colour, brand, make or size but shall be comparable to the original item ordered. Should the vendor not
receive a reply to this communication within 3 (three) hours, the purchaser shall be given a voucher to the value of the item purchased to purchase any other item on the website.

b. Offer a "Back Order". Should the vendor be advised by a supplier that the item ordered by the Purchaser will be in stock within the next 5 (five) business days then in such an instance the vendor
shall inform the Purchaser accordingly. Should the Purchaser accept this Back Order the item ordered shall be delivered once it has been received from the supplier by the vendor on the customers
next order. Please note however, the vendor has no control over when the item in question shall be delivered by the supplier and thus prompt delivery to the Purchaser is not guaranteed and the
