5. OUR STATUS AS PRINCIPAL
5.1 Please note that in some cases, in order to make our service to you quicker and more efficient we accept orders as the principal seller but ask our supplier to deliver them directly to you. However, the legal contract is always between you and us (and not with our supplier), and is subject to the terms and conditions.
5.2 We may also provide links on our site to the websites of other companies, whether affiliated with us or not. We cannot give any undertaking, that products you purchase from third party sellers through our site, or from companies to whose website we have provided a link on our site, will be of satisfactory quality, and any such warranties are DISCLAIMED by us absolutely.
