Sale of Products to you through the Website
Time of Contract
Any order you place through the Website represents an offer to us to purchase a product which is accepted by us when we send email confirmation to you that we've received your order, and including a contact name, the total price, an order/reference number and instructions of how to contact us (the "Confirmation Email"). The contract for sale between you and us is, therefore, formed at the time we send the Confirmation Email to you. Any products on the same order which we have not confirmed in a Confirmation Email do not form part of that contract.
We aim to deliver your order to you in accordance with the Delivery Policy but offer no assurances or guarantees on time or date of delivery.
It is not possible for us to be specific about availability. When the order is not in stock we will first find out an approximate delivery date, and post as much information as we are able to on the Website. In the instance that a Confirmation Email is sent and it is only discovered the item is out of stock, after the fact, you will then be contacted with this information and you will have the choice to either cancel your order with a full refund of any monies paid or you may choose to continue with your order.
When payment details are provided to us and payment is not made by yourself via our secure real time credit card transaction facility we will not process the payment until we know that the order is in stock.
If you cannot be contacted via email or phone within 7 days of first attempted delivery then your parcel will be returned to DK Distribution and you will be liable for an undelivered rate of €4.95 (this fee will apply whether you received free P&P or not).
Our Returns Policy should be referred to in relation to any return you wish to make, whether for a replacement or refund. Nothing in the Returns Policy or these Terms and Conditions affects your statutory rights.
Credit Card Payments
We use secure webpages and offer the use of our secure real time credit card transaction server. We reserve the right to refuse to supply to individuals whose credentials cannot be verified, We will use our sole discretion in these matters and will not authorise payment or supply unless we are completely satisfied that the order is legitimate.
The Confirmation Email will act as a receipt, we will be pleased to provide any additional documentation you may require.
It is possible that a genuine mistake may cause some of our products to be mispriced. If the correct price is lower than that stated on the Website at the time of your order, we charge the lower amount and send you the product. If the correct price is higher than that stated on the Website then we will contact you for instructions before dispatch or cancel your order and notify you of such cancellation. All prices are inclusive of VAT unless stated otherwise.
