Any variation from these terms and conditions is only effective if it is agreed by a director on behalf of IBB.

2.2 Our acceptance of an order takes place when we despatch the order. We will send you a despatch confirmation by email. When we despatch the order the purchase contract will be made even if your payment has been processed immediately, unless we have notified you that we do not accept your order or you have cancelled your order.

(d)the permission contained in paragraph(c) may be revoked at any time by notice by IBB and shall automatically and without notice be revoked uponthe commencement of liquidation proceedings (compulsory or voluntary) of the customer or the appointment of a receiver, administrator, administrative receiver or judicial administrator over any part of the customer’s assets;
