2. Pricing and payment
The real price to pay and shipping costs are displayed in the cart. VAT and net prices are calculated on the basis of the total before tax.
Purchases can be paid with Visa, MasterCard, PayPal and any other payment options we may offer. Transaction processing is only made at the time of shipment of the order.
We reserve the right to refuse any order you place with us. We may, in our sole discretion, limit or cancel quantities purchased per person, per household or per order. In the event we make a change to or cancel an order, we will attempt to notify you by contacting the e-mail and/or billing address/phone number provided at the time the order was made.
We reserve the right to limit or prohibit orders that, in our sole judgment, appear to be placed by dealers, resellers or distributors.
The products are delivered to the shipping address you provided during the ordering process. While we ship to most countries, if your country is not included on the list on the ordering page, it means we do not ship to your country. We reserve the right to split deliveries. A participation fee for processing and shipping will be charged for one shipment only. We cannot be held responsible for any consequences of late delivery. In the event of unusual delay, an email will be sent to you. The times indicated are average times and correspond to the time of treatment and delivery for products shipping in Europe.
