8.5 If no one is available at your address to take delivery of the Products, we will leave you a note informing you of how to rearrange delivery the Products.
8.6 If you do not collect the Products from us as arranged or if, after a failed delivery to you, you do not re-arrange delivery we will contact you for further instructions and may charge you for storage costs and any further delivery costs. If, despite our reasonable efforts, we are unable to contact you or re-arrange delivery we may end the Contract and clause 2 will apply.
8.7 You have legal rights if we deliver the Products late. If we miss the delivery deadline for any Products then you may treat the Contract as at an end straight away if any of the following apply:
8.7.1 we have refused to deliver the Products;

8.9 If you do choose to treat the Contract as at an end for late delivery under clause 7 or clause 8.8, you can cancel your Order for any of the Products or reject Products that have been delivered. If you wish, you can reject or cancel the Order for some of those Products (not all of them), unless splitting them up would significantly reduce their value. After that we will refund any sums you have paid to us for the cancelled Products and their delivery. If the Products have been delivered to you, please contact us using the details set out in clause 19.2 for to arrange collection. We will pay the costs of collection.

9.3 It is always possible that, despite our best efforts, some of the Products may be incorrectly priced. We will normally check prices before accepting your Order so that, where a Product's correct price at the time of your Order is less than our stated price at that time, we will charge the lower amount. If the Product's correct price at the time of your Order is higher than the price stated to you, we will contact you for your instructions before we accept your Order. If we accept and process your Order where a pricing error is obvious and unmistakeable and could reasonably have been recognised by you as a mispricing, we may end the Contract and refund you any sums you have paid.
9.4 If your payment is not authorised, your Order will not be fulfilled.
