For all content that you provide, you warrant that the content is accurate, up to date and not misleading; that you own or otherwise control all necessary rights to meet your obligations under these terms regarding such content; and the use of such content does not and will not infringe any intellectual property rights of any third party.
A seller's rights to make changes
Sellers may make minor changes to their Listing from time to time in order to:
(a) reflect any changes in relevant legal and regulatory requirements; and
(b) implement minor technical adjustments and improvements to the content
These changes will not affect a buyer's use of the Product.

If a seller makes significant changes to their Products or the Seller's Terms for the Products, the seller will notify the buyer prior to the changes take effect. If the buyer does not accept the changes, the buyer may contact the seller to end the contract before the changes take effect and receive a refund for any Products paid for but not received.
The price of the Product will be the price indicated on the listing pages when a buyer views it online. Each seller must take all reasonable care to ensure that the price of the Product advised is correct.

It is always possible that, despite best efforts by the seller, some Products may be incorrectly priced on the website. If the correct price for the Product at a buyer's order date is less than the price stated to the buyer, the seller will charge the lower amount; but if it's higher than the price stated to the buyer, the seller will contact the buyer for instructions before accepting the buyer's order. 

Buyer's rights to make changes
If a buyer wishes to make a change to the Product he has ordered, please contact the seller. The seller has full discretion whether or not to accept the changes. The seller will let the buyer know about any changes to the price of the product, the timing of supply or anything else which would be necessary as a result of the requested change and ask the buyer to confirm whether he wishes to go ahead with the change. If the seller cannot make the change or the consequences of making the change are unacceptable to the buyer, the buyer may request to end the contract 
 
Contracts of sale between seller & buyer
A seller's acceptance of a buyer's order to buy occurs when they email the buyer to accept it, at which point a contract will come into existence between the seller and the buyer. The actual contract for sale of Products is directly between the seller and the buyer. We are not responsible for the enforcement of any contractual obligations between any buyer and any seller. We are not an agent of any buyer or seller, we are a website that allows users to offer, sell and buy Products.
