- FORMALISING THE CONTRACT
The information contained in these Conditions and the details contained on this website do not constitute an offer of sale, rather an invitation to treat. There shall be no contract between you and us in relation to any product until your order has been expressly accepted by us. If your offer is not accepted and your account has already been charged, the amount of the same shall be reimbursed in full.
To place an order, you must follow the online purchasing procedure and click “Authorise Payment”. After doing so, you will receive an e-mail confirming receipt of your order (the “Order Confirmation”). Keep in mind that this does not mean that your order has been accepted, since it constitutes an offer that you are making to us to buy one or more products. All orders are subject to our approval, which you will be informed of via an e-mail in which we will confirm that the order is being sent (the “Shipment Confirmation”). The contract between us to buy a product (the “Contract”) shall be formalised only when we send you the Shipment Confirmation.
Only the products listed in the Shipment Confirmation shall be subject to the Contract. We are not obliged to provide you with any other product that has not been ordered until we confirm that these have been sent in a Shipment Confirmation.
- AVAILABILITY OF PRODUCTS
All product orders are subject to availability of the same. Along this line, if there are difficulties regarding the supply of products or there are no more items left in stock, we reserve the right to provide you with information on substitute products of the same or higher quality and value that you may order. If you do not wish to order the substitute products, we will reimburse any amount that you may have paid.
- REFUSAL TO PROCESS AN ORDER
We reserve the right to remove any product from this website at any time and to remove or modify any material or content from the same. Although we will always do everything possible to process all orders, there may be exceptional circumstances that force us to refuse to process an order after having sent the Order Confirmation, and we reserve the right to do so at any time.
We shall not be liable to you or to any third party for removing any product from this website for removing or modifying any material or content from the website, or not processing an order once we have sent the Order Confirmation.
Notwithstanding clause 7 above regarding product availability and save for extraordinary circumstances, we will endeavour to send the order consisting of the product(s) listed in each Delivery Confirmation prior to the date indicated in the Delivery Confirmation in question or, if no delivery date is specified, in the estimated timeframe indicated when selecting the delivery method and, in any case within a maximum period of 30 days from the date of the Order Confirmation.
Nonetheless, there may be delays for reasons such as the customization of products, the occurrence of unforeseen circumstances or the delivery zone.
If for any reason we are unable to comply with the delivery date, we will inform you of that situation and we will give you the option to continue with the purchase, establishing a new delivery date, or cancel the order with full reimbursement of the amount paid. Keep in mind in any case that we do not make home deliveries on Saturdays or Sundays.
For the purposes of these Conditions, “delivery” shall be understood to have taken place or the order “delivered” as soon as you or a third party indicated by you acquires physical possession of the goods, which will be evidenced by the signing of the receipt of the order at the agreed delivery address.
- INABILITY TO DELIVER
If it is impossible for us to delivery your order, we will attempt to find a safe place to leave it. If we cannot find a safe place, your order will be returned to our warehouse. We will also leave a note explaining where your order is located and what to do to have it delivered again. If you will not be at the place of delivery at the agreed time, we ask you to contact us to organise delivery on another day.
If after 30 days from the date your order is available for delivery, the order could not be delivered for reasons not attributable to us, we shall assume that you wish to cancel the Contract and it will be terminated. As a result of the termination of the Agreement, we will return to you all payments received from you, including delivery charge (except for any additional costs resulting from your choice of any delivery method other than the ordinary delivery method that we offer) without any undue delay, and at any rate, within 14 days of the date on which this Agreement has been terminated.
Please keep in mind that transport derived from the termination of the Contract may have an additional cost which we will be entitled to pass on you.
- TRANSMISSION OF RISK AND OWNERSHIP OF THE PRODUCTS
The product risks shall be your responsibility from the moment of delivery.
You will take ownership of the products when we receive full payment of all amounts due in relation to the same, including delivery fees, or at the moment of delivery (as defined in clause 9 above), if that were to take place at a later time.
- PRICE AND PAYMENT
The price of the products will be as stipulated at all times on our website, except in the case of an obvious error. Although we make every effort to ensure that the prices featured on the web page are correct, error may occur. If we discover an error in the price of any of the products that you have ordered, we will inform you as soon as possible and give you the option of confirming your order at the correct price or cancelling it. If we are unable to contact you, the order will be considered cancelled and all amounts paid will be reimbursed to you in full.
We are not obliged to provide you with any product at the incorrect lower price (even when we have sent the Shipment Confirmation) if the error in the price is obvious and unmistakable and could have reasonably been recognised by you as an incorrect price.
The prices on the website include tax, but exclude delivery fees, which are added to the total price as indicated in our Delivery Fees.
Prices may change at any time. However, except as stipulated above, the changes shall not affect the orders for which we have sent an Order Confirmation.
Once you have selected all articles that you wish to buy, those will have been added to your basket and the next step will be to process the order and make payment. To that end, you must follow the steps of the purchase process, filling up or verifying the information requested in each step. Furthermore, throughout the purchase process, before payment, you can modify the details of your order. You are provided with a detailed description of the purchase process in the Shopping Guide. Also, if you are a registered user, a record of all the orders placed by you is available in “My Account” area.
You will be charged from the purchase order on payment.
You may use, as payment method, the cards Visa, Mastercard, American Express and PayPal.
To minimise the risk of non-authorised access, your credit card details will be encrypted. Once we receive your order, we will make a pre-authorization on your card to ensure that there are sufficient funds to complete the transaction. The charge on your card will be made at the time your order leaves our warehouse.
If your payment method is PayPal, the charge will be made when we confirm your order.
When you click “Authorise Payment”, you are confirming that the credit card is yours or you are the rightful holder of the gift card or the voucher.
Credit cards are subject to verification and authorisation by the card issuing entity, but if the entity does not authorise the payment, we shall not be liable for any delay or failure to deliver, and we will be unable to formalise any Contract with you.
- BUYING GOODS AS A GUEST
The functionality of buying goods as a guest is also available on the website. Under this type of purchase, only such data which are essential to process your order will be requested from you. Upon completion of the purchase process, you will be offered the possibility of registering as a user or continue as a non-registered user.
- VALUE ADDED TAX
Pursuant to the prevailing rules and regulations in force, all purchases done through the web site are subject to the Value Added Tax (VAT), except for those to be supplied directly to customers the Canary Islands, Ceuta and Melilla.
In this regard and pursuant to Chapter I of Title V of Council Directive 2006/112/EC of 28 November 2006, on the common system of value added tax, the place of supply shall be deemed to be within the Member State of the address where items shall be delivered, and applicable VAT shall be at the prevailing rate in each Member State where items are to be supplied as per the orders placed.
Pursuant to the applicable rules and regulations in each jurisdiction, the rule of the “reverse charge” (article 194 of Directive 2006/112) may apply to goods supplied in certain Member States of the European Union if the customer is or is required to be a taxable person for VAT purposes. If this is the case, no VAT would be charged by us, subject to the confirmation by the recipient that the VAT on the items supplied would be accounted for by the customer under the reverse charge procedure.
As regards orders to be supplied in the Canary Islands and Ceuta and Melilla, they would be VAT exempt as provided under article 146 of the above referred Directive, subject to the application of the relevant taxes and custom duties pursuant to the prevailing rules and regulations.
