1.2 Any Order is subject to acceptance by STBF. STBF is not obliged to accept any Order or to justify refusal of the same. Receipt of payment for Goods by STBF does not in itself constitute acceptance by STBF of the Order.
1.3 STBF may vary the terms and conditions of this Agreement from time to time by publishing new terms and conditions on the STBF website or catalogue.

Occasionally, prices advertised on the STBF website may differ from prices advertised in the STBF catalogue and STBF is under no obligation to honour the price in the website if the Order is placed through the catalogue. A delivery and/or insurance charge may be payable in addition to the price of the Goods. All prices are quoted in British Pound Sterling.
