The contract between us (Contract) will only be formed when we send you the Confirmation, unless we have notified you that we do not accept your order.

7.7 We will take all reasonable care, in so far as it is in our power to do so, to keep the details of your order and payment secure, but in the absence of negligence on our part we cannot be held liable for any loss you may suffer if a third party procures unauthorised access to any data you provide when accessing or ordering from the website.
