Terms of Sale
By placing an order you are offering to purchase a product on and subject to the following terms and conditions. All orders are subject to availability and confirmation of the order price. Dispatch times may vary according to availability and any guarantees or representations made as to delivery times are limited to mainland UK and subject to any delays resulting from postal delays or force majeure for which we will not be responsible. Please see our Delivery Charges notice for further information. In order to contract with you must be over 18 years of age and possess a valid credit or debit card issued by a bank acceptable to us. Crooked Tongues retains the right to refuse any request made by you. If your order is accepted we will inform you by email and we will confirm the identity of the party which you have contracted with. This will usually be Crooked Tongues or may in some cases be a third party. Where a contract is made with a third party Crooked Tongues is not acting as either agent or principal and the contract is made between yourself and that third party and will be subject to the terms of sale which they supply you. When placing an order you undertake that all details you provide to us are true and accurate, that you are an authorised user of the credit or debit card used to place your order and that there are sufficient funds to cover the cost of the goods. The cost of foreign products and services may fluctuate. All prices advertised are subject to such changes.
When you place an order, you will receive an acknowledgement e-mail confirming receipt of your order: this email will only be an acknowledgement and will not constitute acceptance of your order. A contract between us will not be formed until we send you confirmation by e-mail that the goods which you ordered have been dispatched to you. Only those goods listed in the confirmation e-mail sent at the time of dispatch will be included in the contract formed.
Pricing and Availability
Whilst we try and ensure that all details, descriptions and prices which appear on this Website are accurate, errors may occur. If we discover an error in the price of any goods which you have ordered we will inform you of this as soon as possible and give you the option of reconfirming your order at the correct price or cancelling it. If we are unable to contact you we will treat the order as cancelled. If you cancel and you have already paid for the goods, you will receive a full refund. Where applicable, prices are inclusive of VAT at the rate appropriate to the country of receipt within the EU. VAT is not included in our prices for customers outside of the EU. Delivery costs will be charged in addition; such additional charges are clearly displayed where applicable and included in the 'Total Cost'.
Upon receiving your order we carry out a standard pre-authorisation check on your payment card to ensure there are sufficient funds to fulfil the transaction. Goods will not be dispatched until this pre-authorisation check has been completed. Your card will be debited once the order has been accepted.

No needless name-calling and flaming. Healthy debate is fine. Calling people out or swearing at and harassing them isn't.
Watch what you post. Oddly enough, what you and some others find funny might not be so appropriate for other people checking the site.
Consider the feelings of other folk. Yes, this might be reinforcing a what we've mentioned earlier, but when it comes to certain matters that might lead to an immense flaming war, give it a second thought before you post and consider the tedious outcome.
Try to put what you post in the right place. We think you'll agree that to put it where it belongs keeps things tidy and benefits all parties.
If you feel aggrieved by something on the site, get in touch. Don't suffer in silence.
Watch what you share - keep it legal and respect all of the website terms.
It's our site. We can do what we want. Sounds cold, but it's the truth. Obviously we won't exploit this, but if we want to remove content, de-activate accounts, or issue warnings, we will.
Heads-ups are great. Blatant buying and selling is not.
Show love, drop knowledge!
