- Formalization of the Contract
The contract will not be understood as formalized or concluded until We have expressly accepted your order. If your offer is not accepted and a charge has been made to your account, the amount will be refunded in full.
To place an order, you must follow the online purchase procedure, clicking on “Buy” and then clicking on “Pay.” Upon doing that you will receive an e-mail acknowledging receipt of your order. All orders are subject to our acceptance, of which you will be informed through an e-mail confirming that the product is being sent (the “Shipping Confirmation”). The contract will be formalized only when we send you the Shipping Confirmation and only products related to the same will be subject to the contract.
- About the availability of products or services
All product orders are subject to their availability. In this sense, if there are difficulties in the supply of products, we will inform you about substitute products of equal and superior quality and value that you would be able to reserve or pre-order. If you do not wish to place an order for substitute products, we will refund any amount you may have paid.
- Processing and availability of orders placed
The products or services we offer on this website are only available for delivery or shipment to Spanish territory.
We can remove any product or service from this website at any time and remove or modify any material or content therein. Although we always try to process all orders, there may be exceptional circumstances that force us to refuse the processing of any order, even after having sent an order confirmation, so we reserve the right to do so at any time.
We are not liable to you or to any third party for removing or withdrawing any product from this website, removing, or modifying any material or content therein, or for not processing an order once we have sent you the Order Confirmation.
- Conditions related to the delivery of the Products and Services
Without prejudice to the provisions of clause 8 above regarding the availability of the products and unless extraordinary circumstances occur, we will try to send the order consisting of the product(s) specified in each Shipment Confirmation prior to the delivery date shown in The Shipment Confirmation sent. If no delivery date is specified, the delivery will be performed within the estimated period indicated when selecting the shipping method and, in any case, within a maximum period of 30 days from the date of the Order Confirmation.
However, there could be delays due to unforeseen circumstances or in relation to the delivery area.
If for some reason we could not meet the delivery date, we will inform you and give you the option to continue with the purchase by establishing a new delivery date or cancel the same with a full refund of the price paid.
For the purposes of these General Conditions, it will be understood that the “delivery” has occurred or that the order has been “received” when you, or a third party you authorize to do so, acquires the material possession of the products, with proof of delivery in the form of a signed receipt of the order at the agreed delivery address.
- Impossibility to deliver an order
If it is impossible for us to make the delivery of your order, we will try to arrange a safe place to leave it. If we do not find a safe place, your order will be returned, and we will leave you a note explaining where your order is and how to proceed to resend the order.
If 15 days have elapsed since your order is available for delivery and the same has not been delivered for reasons not attributable to us, we will understand that you are withdrawing from the Contract and we will consider it terminated. As a result, we will refund all payments received, including delivery costs (except for the additional costs arising from your choice of a delivery mode other than the least expensive mode of regular delivery that we offer) without any undue delay and, in any case, within a maximum period of 15 days from the date on which we consider the Contract terminated.
It is worth mentioning that the transportation or delivery resulting from the termination of the Contract may have an additional cost, so we will be authorized to charge you for the corresponding costs.
- Transfer of Property and Risk
The ownership of the Products and Services is acquired when We receive the full payment of the amounts owed in relation to them, including the shipping costs, or at the time of delivery (according to the definition set forth in clause 10 herein) if the same took place later. It will be understood that the risks of the Products or Services will be your exclusive responsibility as of the time of delivery.
- Price and Payment
The price of the products or services will be the one established on our website at the time, except in case of manifest error. Although we try to make sure that all prices listed on the page are correct, errors may occur.
If we discover an error in the price of any of the products or services that have been ordered, we will inform you as soon as possible and give you the option to reconfirm your order at the correct price or cancel it. If we are unable to contact you, the order will be considered cancelled and the amounts that have been paid will be fully reimbursed.
We will not be obliged to supply any product at the wrong lower price (even if we had sent you the Shipping Confirmation) if the error in the price is obvious and unambiguous and you could reasonably have recognized it as an incorrect price.
The prices on the website include VAT, but exclude shipping costs, which will be added to the total amount.
Prices may change at any time, but (except as stated above) the possible changes will not affect the orders on which we have already sent an Order Confirmation.
Once you have chosen all the items you want to buy, they will be added to your shopping cart and the next step will be to process the order and make the payment. To do so, you must follow the steps of the purchase process, providing the information requested at each step.
Also, during the purchase process, you will be able to modify the details of your order before making the purchase.
To minimize the risk of unauthorized access, your credit card information will be encrypted. Once we receive your order, we will pre-authorize your card to ensure there are sufficient funds to complete the transaction. The charge on your card will be made at the time we confirm the order. By clicking “Pay” you confirm that the credit card is yours.
Credit cards will be subject to verifications and authorizations by their issuer, but if that entity does not authorize payment, we will not be responsible for any delay or failure to deliver and we cannot formalize any Contract with you.
- Return Policy
- Legal right to desist from the purchase
If you are hiring as a consumer and user, you have the right to withdraw from this Contract within a period of 14 calendar days without the need for justification.
The withdrawal period will expire 14 calendar days from the day that you or a third party authorized by you, other than the carrier, acquires the material possession of the products or in case the products included in your order are delivered separately, upon 14 calendar days from the date when you or a third party authorized acquire the material possession of the last product delivered. In terms of the subscription of services, the withdrawal period will expire 14 calendar days after the purchase was made.
To exercise the right of withdrawal, you must notify us by writing to the email firstname.lastname@example.org or through our contact form, stating your decision to withdraw from the Contract. You can use the model withdrawal form that appears as an Annex to these Conditions, although its use is not mandatory.
To comply with the withdrawal period, it is sufficient that the communication whereby you exercise this right is sent prior to the expiration of the corresponding term. It is worth mentioning that your right to withdraw from the Contract will apply only to those products that you return in the same conditions in which they were received.
No refund will be made if the product has been used beyond the mere opening thereof, of products that are not in the same condition in which they were delivered or that have suffered any damage, so you should be careful with the product or products while they are in your possession. Please return the item using or including all original packaging, instructions and other documents that accompany the same. In any case, you must include the ticket you received at the time of delivery of the product duly completed, along with the product to be returned.
After examining the returned item, we will let you know if you are entitled to the refund of the amounts paid. The reimbursement of transportation costs will only be made when the right of withdrawal is exercised within the legal term and if you return all items that make up the order in question. The refund will be made as soon as possible and, in any case, within 15 days from the date in which you notify your intention to cancel. However, we can withhold reimbursement until we receive the products, or until you have submitted a proof of the return of the same, depending on which condition is met first. The refund will always be made using the same means of payment that you used to make the purchase.
You must be responsible for the direct cost of returning the products. Please keep in mind that if you decide to return the items to us, we will be authorized to charge you the expenses in which we may incur.
- Consequences of withdrawal
In case you decide to withdrawal, we will refund all payments received, including delivery costs, if applicable, (except for the additional costs arising from your choice of a delivery mode other than the least expensive mode of regular delivery that we offer) without any undue delay and, in any case, no later than 15 calendar days from the date on which you inform us of your decision to withdraw from this Contract.
We will proceed to make such refund using the same means of payment employed when you made the initial transaction. You will not incur any expenses as a result of the refund. Notwithstanding the foregoing, we may withhold reimbursement until we have received the products, or until you have submitted a proof of the return of the same, depending on which condition is met first.
Unless you return the products through a delivery service or courier organized by us, you must be responsible for the direct cost of returning the products.
You will only be responsible for the decrease in the value of the products resulting from a handling other than the necessary to establish the nature, characteristics, and operation of the products.
- Defective Product Returns
If at the time of delivery, you consider that the product does not comply with the provisions of this Contract, you must contact us immediately providing the product data as well as the damage it suffers, so we can indicate the way to proceed.
We will proceed to carefully examine the returned product and we will notify you by e-mail within a reasonable time if the refund or replacement of the product is appropriate (if applicable). The refund or replacement of the item will be made as soon as possible and, in any case, within 20 days from the date on which we send you an email confirming that the refund or replacement of the non-conforming item is applicable.
The amounts paid for those products that are returned because of some fault or defect, should this really exist, will be reimbursed in full, including the delivery costs incurred to deliver the item and the costs you would have incurred to return it to us. The refund will be made in the same means of payment that was used to pay for the purchase.
In any case, the rights recognized by current legislation shall remain unaffected.
