For the avoidance of doubt, this means that the Terms apply at the point of placing the order, irrespective of whether the order is accepted or not.

X Marks The Spot Limited reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to modify, alter, or otherwise update these Terms at any time and buyers agree to be bound by such modifications, alterations or updates.

3 We will not charge value added tax (VAT) on products if they are being delivered outside the European Union.
4 Product cost, VAT where applicable, handling charges and postage and packing for your order will be itemised on the invoice you will receive with the goods.
Orders and Payment
5 The customer is responsible for ensuring that the product is suitable for their needs. In accepting these Terms the customer confirms that he/she has read and understood the applicable product description, FAQs and delivery timescales relating to the product ordered. X Marks the Spot staff are available by phone and email should you require any clarification or help in making a choice.
6 No order is accepted by us unless and until confirmed by us in writing (usually by email following your purchase)
7 Payment in full is required before goods are despatched.
8 Cheques must be crossed and made payable to X Marks The Spot Limited.
9 All credit/charge card payments are subject to authorisation by the card issuer. If your payment is not authorised, we will cancel your order (and notify you that we have done so) and you must return the goods to us (if you have already received them) at your own expense.
10 X Marks The Spot reserves the right to charge a credit card handling fee. Any such fee will be clearly identified on our website at time of purchase or via email for offline purchases.

We will advise you of a target delivery date when we get your order. If we cannot meet our delivery target we will agree an alternative where possible or offer a full refund.
13 You may have the option to pay extra for faster processing of your order or faster delivery. Please note that we cannot be held responsible for delays in postal or courier services.
14 All products are subject to availability. On occasion an order cannot be fulfilled because a treasure hunt is not available because it is being updated or is not yet released, such as a Christmas treasure hunt. Also, on rare occasions, it may not be possible to fulfil an order because there is insufficient time to do so for your preferred date. As availability is dynamic please therefore note when booking online that the ability to "Add to Cart" does not necessarily mean that a product is available. If we cannot meet an order we will offer a full refund or an alternative. If in doubt please contact us first to check availability before purchase.
