After placing an order via our Site, you will receive an e-mail from us acknowledging that we have received your order. Please note that
this does not mean that your order has been accepted. Your order constitutes an offer to us to buy Goods. 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 Goods have been dispatched (the "Dispatch Confirmation"). The
contract between us which shall incorporate these terms and conditions ("Contract") will only be formed when we send you the Dispatch Confirmation.
The Contract will relate only to those Goods whose dispatch we have confirmed in the Dispatch Confirmation. We will not be obliged to supply
any other Goods which may have been part of your order until the dispatch of such Goods has been confirmed in a separate Dispatch Confirmation.
NYCoS reserves the right to refuse to accept any order that is deemed to be contrary to NYCoS's policies in force at the time.
NYCoS reserves the right (without prejudice to any other remedy) to cancel any incompleted order or to suspend delivery in the event of any of the Customer's
