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 Acknowledgement. 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, or for removing or modifying any material or content from the website or not processing an order once we have sent the Order Acknowledgement.
Notwithstanding Clause 7 above regarding product availability and except for extraordinary circumstances, we will endeavour to send the order consisting of the product(s) listed in each Order Acknowledgement on the date indicated when selecting the delivery method and, in any case within a maximum period of 30 days from the date of the Order Acknowledgement.
Nonetheless, there may be delays for reasons such as 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 deliveries on Sundays or public holidays.
For the purpose of these Conditions, the "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 delivery address indicated by you.
10. INABILITY TO DELIVER
If it is impossible for us to deliver 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 organize 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 Order and it will be terminated. As a result of the termination of the Order, we will return to you all payments received from you, including delivery charges if no attempt at delivery has been made (except for any additional charges 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 Order has been terminated.
Please keep in mind that transport derived from the termination of the Order may have an additional cost which we will be entitled to pass on to you.

The products shall be under your responsibility from the moment of delivery to you (or a third party nominated by you) as outlined in Clause 9 above.
You will take ownership of the products when we receive full payment of all amounts due, including delivery charges, or at the moment of delivery (as defined in Clause 9 above), whichever is the later.
12. 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.

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 Order Acknowledgement) if the error in the price is obvious and unmistakable and could have reasonably been recognized by you as an incorrect price.
The prices on the website exclude goods and services tax (GST) and delivery charges, which are added to the total price.
Prices may change at any time, but (other than as set out above) changes shall not affect the orders for which we have sent an Order Acknowledgement.
Once you have selected all articles that you wish to buy, they will be added to your basket. The next step will be to process the order and make the payment. To that end, you must follow the steps of the purchase process, indicating or verifying the information requested in each step. Furthermore, throughout the purchase process, before payment, you can modify the details of your order. Also, as a registered user, a record of all the orders placed by you is available in "My Account" section.
You may use, as payment method, the following cards: Visa, Mastercard, American Express and JCB.
To minimise the risk of non-authorised access, your credit card details will be encrypted. Once we receive your order, we request a pre-authorisation 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 you submit the Order.
When you click "Pay Now", you are confirming that the credit card is yours.
