2. How the contract is formed between you and us
2.1 You may place an order to purchase a Product advertised for sale on the Site by following the onscreen prompts after clicking on the item you are interested in. You will have an opportunity to check and correct any input errors in your order up until the point at which you submit your order by clicking the “Pay Now” button on the “Payment Options” page. No amends can be made by you to your order after this point.
2.2 After placing an order, you will receive an e-mail from us acknowledging that we have received your order and giving you an order number and a summary of your order. Please note that this does not mean that your order has been accepted. Your order constitutes an offer to us to buy a Product. All orders are subject to acceptance by us, and we will confirm such acceptance to you by sending you an e-mail that confirms that the Product has been dispatched (the Dispatch Confirmation). The contract between us for the sale of a Product will only be formed when we send you the Dispatch Confirmation for the relevant Product. If you order several Products from us which are being delivered at different times or separately from a 3rd Party Supplier, each contract is formed when we provide the Dispatch Confirmation for each Product.
2.3 Each Contract will relate only to those Products whose dispatch we have confirmed in the Dispatch Confirmation. We will not be obliged to supply any other Products which may have been part of your order until the dispatch of such Products has been confirmed in a separate Dispatch Confirmation.
2.4 We may choose not to accept your order for any reason and we will not be liable to you or to anyone else in those circumstances.
2.5 We may be unable to process your order if:

(b) the Product you ordered is for pharmacy-only medicines and our pharmacists have been unable to contact you to discuss your order, or a matter related to your order;
(c) a 3rd Party Supplier has for any reason been unable to action your order for a Product they supply;
(d) there is a problem with authorisation of your method of payment.
3.1 We will deliver the Products to you in accordance with the delivery option specified by you when you placed your order (e.g. express or standard delivery and delivery to store).

3.2 We will dispatch all Products comprised in your order which are supplied by us at the same time albeit on some occasions in multiple packages. If your order contains Products supplied by a 3rd Party Supplier, the 3rd Party Supplier will undertake delivery directly to you from their stock and this may or may not arrive at the same time as orders which are dispatched by us. Delivery will be made to the delivery address specified in your order. Please see Delivery Information for details of where we deliver and the available delivery options. We cannot deliver items within the same order to multiple addresses. We are not responsible for any additional carrying or positioning of Products ordered.
