FORMATION OF THE CONTRACT
Our website does not, in any way, contain an offer for sale but rather an invitation to make an offer. A contract of sale shall exist only upon our acceptance of your order.
To place an order, you must follow the online shopping process and press the “Place Order” or "Complete Order" button to submit your order. You will then receive an e-mail acknowledging our receipt of your order (the “Order Confirmation”). Your order constitutes your offer to buy products from us.
All orders are subject to our acceptance and we will confirm our acceptance by sending you an e-mail confirming that the product has been dispatched for delivery (“Shipment Confirmation”). The contract of sale (“Contract”) will only be formed when we send you the Shipment Confirmation. The Contract will cover only those products whose delivery has been confirmed in the Shipment Confirmation. We are not bound to deliver products until the delivery of such products has been confirmed in a separate Shipment Confirmation.
AVAILABILITY OF PRODUCTS
All orders for products are subject to availability. In the event of supply difficulties or non-availability, we may give you information about substitute products of an equal or higher value, which you can order. If you do not wish to order such substitute products, we will refund any payments made by you for the non-available products.

We reserve the right to withdraw any products from this website at any time and/or remove or edit any materials or content on this website. We, likewise, reserve the right to refuse to process an order after we have sent you an Order Confirmation, at any time, and at our sole discretion. We will not be liable to you or any other third party for the foregoing reasons.
Subject to availability, and unless there are any exceptional circumstances, we strive to deliver the products in the Shipment Confirmation by the delivery date indicated in the Order Confirmation or, if no estimated delivery date is specified, within 15 days from the date of the Order Confirmation. Delay in the delivery may be caused by the following:
- Unforeseen circumstances such as natural calamities and weather disruptions, accidents, civil disturbances, and other similar circumstances
- Shipping service interruptions
- Access to delivery area
- Incomplete address indicated by customer or no one to receive the order
- Peak season and holidays
- Customization of products
- Specialized items
If we are unable to deliver the products ordered after two (2) attempts, we will contact you explaining the attempts to deliver. We will agree when and where the products should be delivered after the two (2) attempts. All shipping costs incurred after the first delivery shall be charged to you and should be settled before we attempt to deliver again.
RISK AND OWNERSHIP
At the time of delivery, risk of loss and/or damage to the products will be transferred to you. Ownership over the products will only be passed to you when we receive full payment of all sums due from you, including delivery charges.
If there is an error in the price of any product you ordered through our website, we will inform you thereof as soon as possible and give you the option to reconfirm the order at the correct price or to cancel the order.
