This document (together with the documents referred to herein) sets out the terms and conditions governing your use of this website and your purchase of products from this website ("Terms").
Please read the Terms carefully before using this website. By using this website or placing an order through this website, you agree to be bound by these Terms and if you do not agree to all of the Terms, you must not use this website.
These Terms shall be the terms and conditions applicable to you.
USE OF OUR WEBSITE
By using this website and placing orders through this website you agree to:
- Use this website only for the purpose of making legally valid enquiries or orders.
- Not to place any false or fraudulent orders. If we reasonably believe that such an order has been placed, we shall be entitled to cancel the order and inform the relevant authorities.
- To provide us with your email address, postal address and/or other contact details truthfully and accurately.
- If you do not provide us with all the information we require, we will not be able to process your order.
By placing an order through this website, you declare that you are over 18 years of age and have the legal capacity to enter into a contract.
FORMALISATION OF THE CONTRACT
The information contained in these Terms and Conditions and the details contained on this website do not constitute an offer to sell, but an invitation to contract. No contract will exist between you and us in relation to any product until your order has been expressly accepted by us. If your offer is not accepted and your account has already been debited, you will be refunded in full.
To place an order, you must follow the online purchase procedure and click on "Authorise payment". You will then receive an e-mail acknowledging receipt of your order (the "Order Confirmation"). Please note that this does not mean that your order has been accepted, as your order constitutes an offer by you to us to purchase one or more products.
All orders are subject to acceptance by us, of which you will be informed via an email from us confirming that the product is being shipped to you (the "Shipping Confirmation"). The contract for the purchase of a product between you and us (the "Contract") will only be formed when we send you the Dispatch Confirmation.
Only those products listed in the Dispatch Confirmation will be the subject of the Contract. We shall not be obliged to supply you with any products that may have been ordered until we confirm the dispatch of the product to you in a Dispatch Confirmation.
AVAILABILITY OF PRODUCTS
All product orders are subject to product availability. In this regard, if there are difficulties in the supply of products or if items are out of stock, we reserve the right to provide you with information about substitute products of equal or superior quality and value which you may order. If you do not wish to order such substitute products, we will refund any amount you may have paid.
REFUSAL TO PROCESS AN ORDER
We reserve the right to withdraw any product from this website at any time and to remove or modify any material or content on this website. Although we will do our best to always process all orders, there may be exceptional circumstances which require us to refuse to process an order after we have sent the Order Confirmation and we reserve the right to do so at any time, at our sole discretion.
We shall not be liable to you or to any third party for removing any product from this website, whether or not such product has been sold, removing or modifying any material or content on the website, or for refusing to process an order after we have sent you an Order Confirmation.
Notwithstanding the above Clause regarding the availability of the products and unless extraordinary circumstances occur, we will endeavour to dispatch the order consisting of the product(s) listed in each Dispatch Confirmation before the delivery date stated in the Dispatch Confirmation in question or, if no delivery date is specified, within 15 days from the date of the Dispatch Confirmation.
However, delays may occur for any of the following reasons:
1. Unforeseen circumstances; or
2. Delivery zone.
If for any reason we are unable to meet the delivery date, we will inform you of this circumstance and give you the option of either proceeding with the purchase by setting a new delivery date or cancelling the order with a full refund of the price paid. Please note that we do not deliver on Saturdays or Sundays.
For the purposes of these Conditions, "delivery" shall be deemed to have taken place or the order to have been delivered at the time of signing for receipt of the order at the agreed delivery address.
IMPOSSIBILITY OF DELIVERY
If after two attempts we are unable to deliver your order, we will try to find a safe place to leave it. We will also leave you a note telling you where your order is and how to collect it. If you will not be at the place of delivery at the agreed time, please contact us to arrange delivery on another day.
TRANSFER OF RISK AND OWNERSHIP OF THE PRODUCTS
The risks of the products shall be borne by you from the time of delivery.
You will acquire ownership of the goods when we receive payment in full of all sums due in respect of the goods, including delivery charges, or at the time of delivery (as defined in clause 9 above), whichever is the later.
PRICE AND PAYMENT
The price of each product will be the price stipulated at any given time on our website, except in the case of manifest error. Although we try to ensure that all prices shown on the site are correct, errors may occur. If we discover an error in the price of any of the products you have ordered, we will inform you as soon as possible and give you the option of reconfirming your order at the correct price or cancelling it. If we are unable to contact you, the order will be deemed cancelled and any sums paid will be refunded in full.
We will not be obliged to supply you with any goods at the incorrect lower price (even if we have sent you an Order Confirmation) if the pricing error is obvious and unmistakable and could reasonably have been recognised by you as the incorrect price.
The prices on this website include VAT, but exclude delivery charges, which will be added to the total amount due as set out in our Delivery Charges Policy.
Prices may change at any time, but (except as set out above) any changes will not affect orders in respect of which we have already sent you a Dispatch Confirmation.
Once you have made your purchases, all the items you wish to buy will have been added to your basket and the next step is to process the order and make payment. To do this:
1. Click on the "Shopping Basket" button at the top of the page.
2. Click on the "View Basket" button.
3. Click on the "Checkout" button.
4. Fill in or check the contact information, the details of your order, the address to which you want the order to be sent and the address to which the invoice should be sent.
5. Enter your credit card details.
6. Click on "Authorise Payment".
You can pay with the following cards: Visa, Visa Electron, Mastercard and PayPal. To minimise the risk of unauthorised access, Visa and Mastercard payments are only made via CES, Secure Electronic Commerce transactions. If your payment method is Paypal, the charge will be made at the time we confirm your order.
By clicking "Authorise Payment" you are confirming that the credit card is yours.
Credit cards will be subject to checks and authorisations by the credit card issuer, but if the credit card issuer does not authorise payment, we will not be liable for any delay or non-delivery and will not be able to enter into any Contract with you.
VALUE ADDED TAX
In accordance with the provisions of article 68 of Law 37/1992, of December 28th, on Value Added Tax, the delivery of the articles shall be understood to be located in the territory where Spanish VAT applies if the delivery address is in Spanish territory, except for the Canary Islands, Ceuta and Melilla. For orders destined for the Canary Islands, Ceuta and Melilla, deliveries shall be exempt from VAT in accordance with the provisions of article 21 of Law 37/1992, without prejudice to the application of the corresponding taxes and duties in accordance with the regulations in force in each of these territories.
LEGAL RIGHT TO WITHDRAW FROM THE PURCHASE
In accordance with the applicable regulations, if you are contracting as a consumer, you may withdraw from the Contract at any time within 14 working days from the date of delivery of your order.
In this case, you will be refunded the price paid for such products. You will bear the direct costs of returning the product.
You may prove that you have exercised your right of withdrawal by any means permitted by law, and in any case this right will be considered to have been validly exercised by sending the withdrawal document that we provide you with or by returning the products.
This provision does not affect other consumer rights recognised by current legislation.
CONTRACTUAL RIGHT OF WITHDRAWAL
In addition to the right of withdrawal legally recognised for consumers and users and mentioned in the previous Clause, we grant you a period of 30 days from the date of the Dispatch Confirmation to return the products (except for those mentioned in the following Clause, for which the right of withdrawal is excluded).
In this case, you will be refunded the price paid for such products. You will bear the direct costs of returning the product if you do not return the product by any of the free methods mentioned in Clause 14.3 below.
You must exercise your right of withdrawal by sending the withdrawal document provided by us or by returning the products.
Your right to withdraw from the Contract shall only apply to products that are returned in the same condition in which you received them. Please return the item using or including its original packaging. You must also include all instructions, documents and product packaging. No refund will be given if the product has been used beyond the mere opening of the product or if it has been damaged in any way, so please be careful with the products while they are in your possession.
You will find a summary of how to exercise this right of withdrawal when you receive the Dispatch Confirmation.
Returns can be made at our VOLTAGE shop in Vilanova i La Geltrú (Barcelona) or via a messenger/courier that we will send to your home address, (see shipping policy).
For returns by messenger/courier you must contact us through our email firstname.lastname@example.org so that we can organize the collection at your home. You must return the goods in the same package in which you received them.
Please note that if you choose to return the goods to us carriage paid, we will be entitled to charge you for any costs we may incur.
After examining the item, we will let you know if you are entitled to a refund. The refund will be made as soon as possible and in any case within 30 days from the date on which you informed us of your intention to withdraw. The refund will always be made by the same means of payment that you used to pay for the purchase.
If you have any doubts, you can contact us at email@example.com or by calling +34.93.895.26.57.
RETURNS OF DEFECTIVE PRODUCTS
In cases where you consider that at the time of delivery the product does not conform to what is stipulated in the Contract, you should contact us immediately by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by telephone at +34.93.895.26.57, where we will tell you how to proceed. We will proceed to carefully examine the returned product and will inform you by e-mail, within a reasonable period of time, if the product is to be returned or replaced (if applicable). The return or replacement of the item will be made as soon as possible and in any case within 30 days from the date on which we send you an e-mail confirming the return or replacement of the non-conforming item.
The amounts paid for those products that are returned because of a tare or defect, when it actually exists, will be refunded in full, including the delivery costs incurred to deliver the item to you. The refund will be made by the same means of payment that was used to pay for the purchase.
The rights recognised by the legislation in force remain unaffected.
