8.14 On rare occasions, our promotion codes may calculate incorrectly and therefore are incorrectly applied to your basket at checkout. In this event, we shall notify you as soon as we become aware, but in any event prior to your Products being dispatched, and reserve the right to cancel the order. Should this occur, you shall be given the option to cancel or amend your order in line with how the promotion code should have been correctly applied.
