Links from this site are provided for your information and convenience only. No responsibility or liability can be accepted for the content of any linked sites.
To the full extent permitted by law the Company excludes all liability for any direct, special, indirect or consequential damages or any other damages of any kind resulting from the use of, or inability to use, the goods or any information obtained either directly or indirectly from this site, or any action taken as a result of using any such information.
Product Availability and Delivery
Any reference to a product does not amount to a promise that such product will be available at any time or that the product is available in all countries.
We are not obliged to supply the goods to you until we have confirmed that we have accepted your order and received payment in full. If the ordered goods are not available we will advise you of this as soon as reasonably possible. You will be given the option of ordering an alternative product or cancelling the order and receiving a full refund if the order has been pre-paid.
Delivery within Cyprus will normally take place within 2 to 5 working days of the order being placed. Please discuss any particular delivery requirements with us. Every effort will be made to deliver the goods as soon as possible after your order has been accepted and within 30 days of your order unless we notify you to the contrary. However, we will not be liable for any loss or damage suffered by you through any delay in delivery.
The costumer shall, if required by the Company, accept delivery by installments but shall not be entitled to demand delivery by installments, except where specifically agreed by the Company.
The Company shall not in any circumstances be liable for loss or damage to goods in transit to the customer unless:
a) Any damage or shortage is reported in to the Company within 5 days after delivery.
b) In the case of total loss the customer notifies the Company of the non-arrival of the goods within a reasonable period (not exceeding 7 days) after receipt of the Company`s invoice.
In the event of goods or materials being collected by or on behalf of the customer its servants or agents such collection will constitute delivery to the customer.
If the Customer cancels a specially manufactured or customized order before its completion he shall become liable to pay to the Company a sum equal to the cost of the labor, materials and overheads expended in the execution of the said order, up to the date of the receipt of such cancellation, plus the profit which the Company would have made but for such cancellation. This shall not apply to finished products normally held in stock by us.
Account customers: Where payment is not normally to be made until after delivery and the latter is delayed by the Customer`s inability or unwillingness to accept such delivery at the time the goods are ready for dispatch, the Company reserves the right to demand payment in full after giving notice of its readiness to deliver the goods and to charge the Customer any storage expenses it may have to incur.
Return of Goods
Please call for instructions before returning any goods. Except where the goods are faulty or incorrectly supplied there is no automatic right on refund in transactions and the circumstances should first be discussed with the Company.
Restocking of goods and arranging credits or refunds is a costly exercise. If there is no fault on the part of the Company but notwithstanding we agree to accept the goods back, we shall normally apply a restocking administration charge of 10% of the value of goods returned with a €10 minimum and the purchaser is responsible for round trip carriage charges. So if you are uncertain about a purchase call us and we will be pleased to advise rather than risking ordering the wrong thing.
Goods sold by the Company and returned by the customer to the Company shall be at the sole risk of the customer until such goods shall have come into custody of the Company at the premises of the Company. This shall equally apply if the Company arranges collection of returned goods at the customer`s request and expense.
In order to receive a refund, the goods must be returned to us unused, and wherever possible in the original packaging. We recommend that you retain all of the original packaging until you are sure that you intend to keep the goods. For goods supplied in a box specifically intended for the item in question, absence of or damage to the original box shall render the returned goods as unsuitable for resale so a credit or refund will not be possible.
Carriage costs will only be refunded if the item is faulty. If you would like us to arrange collection of goods for return, please contact us. Return carriage costs will be deducted from any refund due. It costs more to collect goods than to dispatch them in the first place so our collection charges are higher than our delivery charges.
If items are purchased with ‘free delivery’ this means that we funded the delivery cost out of the value of the sale. If goods are subsequently returned for credit the cost to us of arranging the original delivery will be deducted from the amount credited.
Title and Risk
All goods sold by the Company shall remain the property of the Company until the payment of the price in full. The goods shall be the sole risk of the customer from the time at which they are delivered to the appointed delivery address.
The Company reserves the right to change these terms and conditions of use at any time by posting changes online. Your continued use of this site after changes are posted constitutes your acceptance of these terms and conditions of use as modified by the posted changes.
