These Terms and Conditions apply to all use of therange.co.uk (referred to as "website/site") including all transactions for the sale of goods on therange.co.uk.
Please read through these Terms and Conditions very carefully and we recommend that you print and keep a copy of these Terms and Conditions for future reference. We also recommend that you read through the Terms and Conditions of other services that you access through our website.

The Range Website is operated by CDS Superstores International (referred to as "The Range/we/us/our") and as a user of this website (referred to as "you/your") you fully agree with these Terms and Conditions even if you do not register with us. If you do not agree with these Terms and Conditions, do not use this website.
The dimensions displayed on our website are approximate but we do try our best to make sure they are as accurate as possible.

If we are unable to contact you we will treat the order as cancelled.
