Before placing an order, please read these Terms and Conditions carefully. We recommend printing or downloading a copy for future reference. By clicking the “Place Order” button, you enter an offer to buy the products contained in your shopping bag and accept your agreement will be bound by these Terms and Conditions. The Seller will acknowledge receipt of your order by sending an email, the Confirmation Email, when the product is available and payment for your order has been received. A binding legal contract between you and the Seller is formed when the Seller sends you the Confirmation Email. When the product ordered is in stock and the Seller has received your payment, the Confirmation Email should be provided within 24 hours of placing the order. Should you not receive a Confirmation Email within 48 hours of placing an order, you are kindly requested to contact the Seller's Customer Support team (firstname.lastname@example.org). Should you not receive a Confirmation Email within 30 days of placing an order you will not be bound by your offer to buy the product(s) detailed in your order.
6. Delivery of Goods
Standard Shipping within the UK: your order will typically arrive within 5 to 10 business days after the day you receive the Confirmation Email. In the event the Seller is unable to deliver the ordered product because the Seller itself is not supplied by its own suppliers, without culpability on the part of the Seller, the Seller may withdraw from the contract. In such a case, the Seller shall inform you without delay and propose a comparable product. If a comparable product is not available, or if you do not wish to have the alternate product delivered, the Seller shall, without delay, reimburse any payment made. Whilst the Seller will do everything he can to keep to any specified delivery periods these cannot always be guaranteed and as such the Seller shall not be bound by them.

The price of products ordered from the Online Shop is the price which is valid at the time the order is placed. The price is indicated on the screen before you place the order and in the Confirmation Email. Prices are shown in GBP and include value-added tax (VAT). You accept that you will be responsible for paying any sales or other taxes, duties and charges levied on products in the country where the products are to be delivered to the extent the Seller has not already invoiced you for these.

The Seller shall have the option of lodging a complaint with the carrier or transport insurer regarding the damage. Failure to provide notification of transport damage shall in no way affect your statutory guarantee rights. All products remain the property of the Seller until the Seller receives payment in full.

Customers who are consumers have the right to withdraw from this contract within 14 days without giving any reason. A consumer is any natural person who enters into a legal transaction for a purpose that is neither attributable to their commercial nor self-employed professional activity. The following regulations apply to the cancellation right and the excluding of the cancellation right. The withdrawal period expires after 14 days from the day on which you acquire, or a third party other than the carrier and indicated by you, acquires, physical possession of the goods. To exercise the right of withdrawal, you must inform us (Emgee Trading bvba, Sonnisstraat 106, 3530 Helchteren, Belgium, email@example.com) of your decision to withdraw from this contract by an unequivocal statement (e.g. a letter sent by post or e-mail). To meet the withdrawal deadline, it is sufficient to send your communication concerning your exercise of the right of withdrawal before the withdrawal period has expired. Should you withdraw from this contract, all payments received from you shall be reimbursed, excluding the costs of delivery and return plus a 2% re-stocking fee based on the total amount of the order, without undue delay and in any event not later than 14 days from the day on which we are informed about your decision to withdraw from this contract. We shall carry out such reimbursement using the same means of payment as you used for the initial transaction unless you have expressly agreed otherwise; in any event, you will not incur any fees as a result of such reimbursement. We reserve the right to withhold reimbursement until we have received the items or you have supplied evidence of having returned the items, whichever is the earliest.
Items are to be returned without undue delay and in any event not later than 14 days from the day on which you communicate your withdrawal from this contract to us. The deadline is met if the items are sent back prior to the expiration of the 14 day period calculated from the date of receiving notification of the return. Any returns resulting from a failed delivery attempt by the carrier due to an incorrect address provided by you during the ordering process or failure to collect the parcel form a secondary delivery location will incur an administration fee of £ 8,50. This amount, as well as the original shipping fee, will automatically be deducted from the reimbursement.
