These Terms and Conditions are the only conditions applicable to the use of this website and replace any other, unless prior express written consent has been given by the Seller. These Terms and Conditions are important both for you and for us, as they have been designed to create a legally binding agreement between us in order to protect your rights as a customer and our rights as a company. You declare that, by placing an order, you have read and accepted without any reservation the present Terms and Conditions.
You agree that:
- You may only make use of the website to make queries or to process legally valid orders.
- You may not make any speculative, false or fraudulent request. If we have reasonable grounds to consider that an order of this nature has been made, we shall be authorised to cancel it and inform the relevant authorities.

The articles offered through this website are only available in the following Member States of the European Union: Germany (except the island of Helgoland and the city of Büsingen), Spain, France (except for Overseas territories), Italy (except San Marino, Liviano, Campione d’Italia and the waters of Lake Lugano), Portugal and the United Kingdom.
4. How the contract is formalised
This information and the details contained on this website do not constitute an offer to sell, but rather an invitation to do business. A contract does not exist between you and us, in relation to any product, until your order has been expressly accepted by us. In the event that your order is not accepted, but the amount has already been charged to your account, said amount shall be reimbursed in full.
To place an order, you should follow the online purchase procedure and click on “Authorise payment”. After this, you will receive an email acknowledging receipt of your order (the “Order Confirmation”). Keep in mind that this does not mean your order has been accepted, only that you have made us an offer to purchase one or more products. All orders are subject to our acceptance and we will confirm said acceptance by sending you an email in which we confirm that the product is being shipped (the “Shipping Confirmation”). The contract between you and us (Contract) for the purchase of a product is only formalised once the “Shipping Confirmation” email has been sent.
Only the products listed in the Shipping Confirmation shall be subject to the Contract. We are not obligated to supply any product that may have been ordered until we have confirmed its delivery in the Shipping Confirmation.
5. Product availability
All product orders are subject to availability and, to this end, if difficulties arise with regard to their supply, or if there are no units left in stock, we reserve the right to provide you with information on substitute products of equal or superior quality and value that you could order in their place. If you do not wish to place an order for these substitute products, we shall reimburse you for any amount that you may have paid.
6. Refusal to process an order
We reserve the right to withdraw products from our website at any time and/or to remove or edit any of their content. Although we endeavour to make all reasonable efforts to process all orders and ship all items, exceptional circumstances may arise that prevent us from processing an order once the Order Confirmation has been sent, and we reserve the right to do so at any time, at our sole discretion.
We accept no responsibility for the withdrawal of or modification to any product featured on this website, regardless of whether said product has been sold or not; likewise, we accept no responsibility for the withdrawal of or modification to any of the contents included on the website, or for refusing to process an order once we have sent the Order Confirmation.
7. Right to cancel the purchase
If you are contracting as a consumer, you may withdraw from the Contract at any time s within 7 working days of receipt of your order. In this case, you would be reimbursed the price paid for such products in accordance with our Returns Policy (see Clause 13).
Your right to withdraw from the Contract only applies to products that are returned in the same condition in which they were received. This must include all instructions, documents and packaging related to the products. No refund shall be made if the product has been used or if it has suffered any damage, so you should take care when handling the products while they are in your possession.
Please treat the products with reasonable care while they are in your possession and keep, if possible, the original boxes and packages in case of a return.
You can find more details on these rights as recognised by law, as well as the explanation on how to exercise them in clause 13 of these Terms and Conditions; you will also receive a summary of said rights with the Shipping Confirmation.
This provision does not affect any consumer rights recognised by current legislation.
Notwithstanding that which is established in Clause 5 above, and unless extraordinary circumstances occur, we will try to ship the order of the products/s listed in the Shipping Confirmation before the delivery date shown therein or, if no delivery date is specified, within 15 days of the Shipping Confirmation date.
- Delays may be due to the following reasons:
- Personalisation of products;
- Specialised items;
- Unforeseen circumstances;
- Delivery area;
If, for any reason, we are unable to make the delivery date, you will be duly informed and we will give you the option to either continue with the purchase, establishing a new delivery date, or to cancel the order and receive a full refund of the price paid. Please bear in mind that we do not deliver on Saturdays or Sundays.
For the purpose of these Terms and Conditions, it shall be understood that the “delivery” has taken place or that the products have been “delivered” at the moment of signing the corresponding receipt at the agreed delivery address.
9. Inability to deliver a package
If, after two attempts, it has not been possible for us to carry out the delivery, we will try to find a safe place to leave the package. We will leave you a note explaining where your package has been left and how you can collect it. If you know that you are not going to be present at the place of delivery at the agreed time, we ask that you please contact us to arrange a different delivery date.
10. Transfer of risk and ownership
Any risks regarding the products become your responsibility, effective from the moment of delivery.
You acquire ownership of the products once we have received full payment of the corresponding amount, including shipping costs, or at the time of delivery (according to the definition found in clause 8), if this takes place at a later time.
11. Price and payment
The price of the products is that which is stipulated on our website at the time of purchase, except in the case of an evident error. Although we try to make sure that all prices listed on the page are correct, sometimes errors can occur. If we discover a price error regarding the products you have ordered, we shall inform you as soon as possible and give you the option to reconfirm your order at the correct price or to cancel it. If we can’t manage to get in touch with you, the order shall be considered cancelled and you shall be reimbursed in full for the amount paid.
We are under no obligation to dispatch any item at an incorrect lower price (even if we have sent the Shipping Confirmation) if the error in price is obvious and unmistakable and could have been reasonably recognised by you as an incorrect price.
All prices on the website include VAT but exclude shipping costs, which will be added to the total amount due as set out in our Shipping Costs Guide.
Prices may change at any time, but (except as stated above) said changes shall not affect any orders for which we have already sent a Shipping Confirmation.
Once you have selected the items that you wish to purchase, they will be added to your basket and the next step will be to process the order and carry out payment.
To do this:
- Click on the “Shopping Basket” button at the top of the page.
- Click on the “View Basket” button.
- Click on the “Process Order” button.
- Fill in or check the contact information, the details of your order, the delivery address and the invoicing address.
- Choose your preferred method of payment.
- Click on “Authorise Payment”.
You can pay with Visa, Mastercard or American Express. To minimise any risk of unauthorised access, your credit card information will be encrypted.
If you prefer to pay with Paypal, you will be charged once we have confirmed the order.
By clicking on “Authorise Payment” you confirm that the credit card you are using is yours.
We use “Comodo” to ensure that the payment has been made safely.
Credit card payments are subject to checks and authorisation from the card issuer, but if that entity does not authorise the payment, we shall not be held responsible for any delay or failure to deliver and we would not be able to formalise a Contract with You.
12. Value added tax
In accordance with current regulations, any purchase made through the website shall be subject to Value Added Tax (VAT), except for those that are destined for the Canary Islands, Ceuta and Melilla.
In this regard, and pursuant to Chapter I of Title V of Council Directive 2006/112 of 28 November 2006 on the common VAT system, deliveries shall be deemed to be located within the Member State of the address where the items are to be delivered, and the applicable VAT shall be at the prevailing rate in each Member State where items are to be supplied as per the orders placed.
According to the applicable rules and regulations in each jurisdiction, the rule of “reverse charge” (article 194 of Directive 2006/112) may apply to goods supplied in certain Member States of the European Union, if the invoice recipient is a business owner or professional and as such is required to be a taxable person for VAT purposes. If this is the case, no VAT would be charged by us, subject to confirmation from the recipient that the VAT on the items supplied would be accounted for by the customer under the reverse charge procedure.
For orders destined for the Canary Islands, Ceuta and Melilla, deliveries would be exempt from VAT by application of the provisions set out in Article 146 of the aforementioned Directive, without prejudice to the application of taxes and fees in accordance with the regulations in force in each of them.
13. Responsibility and exemption from liability
Our responsibility with regard to any Product purchased on our website shall be strictly limited to the purchase price of said Product.
Nothing in these Conditions of Purchase excludes or limits in any way our liability:
In the event of any death or personal injury caused by negligence on our part;

In any matter in which it would be illegal or unlawful to exclude, limit or attempt to exclude or limit our liability.
Notwithstanding the provisions of the preceding paragraph, and to the extent permitted by law, unless otherwise stated in these Terms and Conditions, we shall not accept any liability for indirect damages that occur as a side effect of the main losses or damages, however they occur, whether they are caused by civil wrongdoing (including negligence), breach of contract or other, even if they could have been foreseen, including but without limitation to the following:
- loss of income or sales;

If, during the term of a Contract, we cease to insist on strict compliance with any of the obligations assumed under it or with any of these Terms and Conditions, or if we fail to exercise any of the rights or resources we were entitled to exercise or impose by virtue of said Contract or Terms and Conditions, this shall not constitute a waiver of said rights or resources nor shall it exempt you from complying with such obligations.
A waiver by us of any default shall not constitute a waiver of any subsequent default.
No waiver by us of any of these Terms and Conditions shall take effect, unless it is expressly stipulated that it is a waiver and communicated to You in writing in accordance with the provisions laid out in the above Communications section.
If any of the present Terms and Conditions or any provision of a Contract is considered invalid, illegal or unenforceable to any extent by the relevant authorities, it shall be separated from the rest of the conditions and provisions, which shall remain valid to the extent permitted by law.
