Format of the Contract
These terms of sale apply to all goods supplied by Pico Bags, a subsidiary of Livelink Solutions Ltd. registered in England No. 4166926 (the “Supplier”). In these terms “you” and “your” as appropriate refer to the buyer and “us”, “our” and we refer to the seller, Pico Bags and any other associated company. “Days” refers to working days, being Monday to Friday inclusive, excluding of bank holidays or national holidays unless otherwise stated.
Pico Bags is pleased to accept orders subject to the Terms and Conditions of sale as stated in this document. Your use of the Pico Bags ecommerce trading websites and purchase of the products (or services) (“products”) on it means that you agree to these terms and conditions (“terms”). No variation of these conditions shall be binding unless agreed by letter signed by an authorised representative of Pico Bags. Please read the terms carefully before placing your order. We would advise you to retain a copy of them for your future reference.
No contract exists between you and the Supplier for the sale of any goods until the Supplier has received and accepted your order and the Supplier has received payment in full (in cleared funds). Once the Supplier does so, there is a binding legal contract between you and the Supplier.
By way of clarification, an acknowledgement of your order will be sent to you via e-mail when you place your order, but acceptance of your offer to buy the goods will not take place until after your payment is taken and you receive your acceptance e-mail. It is at this point that a binding legal contract is created and any contract is subject to these Terms and Conditions.
The contract is subject to your right of cancellation (see below).
The Supplier may change these terms of sale without notice to you in relation to future sales. All such changes may be viewed in this document in the future.

The description and price of the goods you order will be as shown on the Supplier’s website at the time you place your order. The price for each product is shown in UK Sterling and may exclude or include VAT where applicable. VAT is specified by the HM Revenue and Customs and currently is set to 20%.
Prices do not include charges for delivery. The charges for delivery are additional depending on the value of the order or weight of the products.
The goods are subject to availability and restrictions or conditions may apply.
If on receipt of your order the goods you have ordered were shown in stock and are then not available in stock, the Supplier will inform you as soon as possible and advise you of the earliest possible delivery date. Should you wish to cancel your order at this point, you must immediately send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org stating your order acknowledgement number and that you wish to cancel your order. On receipt of your email the supplier will issue a refund or re-credit to you for any sum that has been paid by you or debited from your credit card for the goods. The Supplier may retain a cancellation fee of up to but not limited to 3% of the total order value to cover credit card payment charges, shipping and carriage charges and other sundry charges that the Supplier may have legitimately incurred.
