Any applicable shipping charges will be calculated and displayed to you during the checkout. After the Products have been dispatched, you will receive a shipment confirmation email with a tracking number and an estimated delivery time. The estimated delivery times and delivery fees remain subject to change at our sole discretion. Please note that the delivery times are estimates only and may depend on the operations of our third-party delivery service providers. If you have not received your Products during the specified delivery times, please contact us and we will look into your order.

We are not liable for any Products that were damaged during shipment. If you receive damaged Products, please contact us within 24 hours following the receipt of the damaged Products. If the damage was caused by our delivery partner, you may need to file a claim with it.
3.3 Delivery delay. We use reasonable endeavours to ensure that the Products are delivered on or before the date indicated for delivery. However, we cannot guarantee delivery by this date as the delivery is executed by our third-party delivery partners and we are not liable for any delays that occur outside our reasonable control.
3.4 Delivery failure due to your fault. If (i) our delivery partner is unable to deliver your Products, (ii) such a failure occurs due to your fault, and (iii) you do not collect your Products from the delivery partner within the relevant time period, we may, but have no obligation to, agree to arrange for re-delivery of the Products. We reserve the right to charge you for the actual costs of re-delivery. Below are examples of situations where a failure to deliver is considered to be your fault: You provided the wrong address for delivery;
- There is a mistake in the address for delivery that was provided;
- The address for delivery is not reasonably or safely accessible;
- If in-person receipt is not required, there is no easy and secure means of leaving the Products at the address for delivery and there is no person available to accept delivery; or
- If in-person receipt is required, there is no person available to provide a signature.
- Fees, Payments, and Refunds
4.1 The Fees. The purchase of the Products is subject to the applicable fees (the “Fees”) payable by you in accordance with the Fees made available on the respective webpage of each Product. By concluding a purchase contract with us (i.e., placing your order), you agree to pay the Fees in accordance with these Terms, the terms and conditions of the respective Fees, and other terms and conditions in force at the moment the service contract is concluded. The Fees remain valid for as long as (i) they are indicated on the Site or (ii) as communicated by us. The Fees are subject to a change without a prior notice. Any changes to the Fees will be made available to you and, if necessary, we will request you to provide consent to the amendments of the Fees.
4.2 Taxes. Unless indicated otherwise, the Fees exclude sales tax and duties imposed by taxing authorities. We are not responsible for covering any Internet service fees, surcharges, and other amounts incurred as a result of your use of the Website and you are solely responsible for covering such costs.
4.3 Payment. All payments related to the Website and your orders are processed by our third-party payment processors (the “Payment Processors”). When you make a payment on the Site, the Payment Processors collect some personal data from you which allow them to make the payments requested by you (e.g., your credit card number, expiration date, billing and shipping address, and security codes). The Payment Processors handle all steps in the payment process through their systems, including data collection and data processing. We do not have direct access to your full payment information - only a part of it is made available to us by the Payment Processors. You are responsible for ensuring that all payment information is correct and the funds necessary for paying the Fees are available. You agree not to hold us liable for payments that do not reach us because you have quoted incorrect payment information or the Payment Processors refused the payment for any other reason.
4.4 Technical steps to conclude a service contract. If you would like to conclude a service contract with us need to: (i) visit the Site; (ii) register your User Account by submitting the requested personal data (optional); (iii) add the chosen Products to your shopping cart; and (iv) provide the required payment information and personal data. You will be able to identify and correct any input errors prior to clicking on the “Buy now” button. After you click on the “Buy now” button, we will send a confirmatory email informing you about your order. By clicking on the “Buy now” button and receiving a confirmatory email, you conclude a sales contract in English with us on the basis of these Terms. The details of the specific service contract will not be filed by us and, therefore, the specific contract will not be available to you. However, if you do require any information regarding the order, you can consult your User Account or contact us directly.
4.5 Returns. You have the right to withdraw from a service contract within the period of 30 days after you have physically taken possession of the Products without providing any reason to us.
4.6 How to return the Products? If you would like to receive a refund, you must inform us of your decision to withdraw from the contract by contacting us by email at email@example.com before the 30-day period expires. After you get our return notice, you have to return the Products at your own cost to the address indicated by us without undue delay and in any event no later than 30 days from the day on which you informed us about your wish to return the Products. The deadline is met if you send back the Products before the period of 30 days expires. The shipping costs for the return of the Products shall be paid fully by you and are non-refundable. To be entitled for a refund, the Products must be (i) new, (ii) unused, (iii) complete, (iv) in an impeccable condition, (v) with all manuals and accessories, (vi) with the applicable tags on, and (vii) in their original packaging. If any of these conditions are not met, we will not refund you for the returned Products.
4.7 Refunds. When you return the Products, we will refund the Fees, including initial basic (cheapest) delivery costs, by using the same payment method that was used to make the payment. In any case, you will not incur any fees as a result of the refund. The refund may be withheld until we receive the returned Products, the Products are assessed as being properly returned back (e.g., they are in an impeccable state, unused, and properly labelled), or you have supplied evidence of having sent back the Products, whichever is the earliest.
4.8 Faulty Products. If you find that the Products that you have received are faulty or wrong Products have been delivered, you can, within 30 days from the day you received the said Products:
- Cancel the purchase and return the Products as described above;
- Request a reduction of the Fees (please contact us for further information), which we may or may not agree to at our sole discretion;
- Request a repair of the Products; or
- Request to replace the Products with the same non-faulty Products or similar Products (please contact us for further information).

- The Digital Millennium Copyright Act
The Digital Millennium Copyright Act of 1998 (the "DMCA") provides recourse for copyright owners who believe that material appearing on the Internet infringes their rights under U.S. copyright law.

The notice must include the following information:
- (a) A physical or electronic signature of a person authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed;

If you believe in good faith that a notice of copyright infringement has been wrongly filed against you, the DMCA permits you to send us a counter-notice. Notices and counter-notices must meet the then-current statutory requirements imposed by the DMCA; see http://www.loc.gov/copyright/ for details. Notices and counter-notices with respect to the Site should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org. We suggest that you consult your legal advisor before filing a notice or counter-notice.
