1.28 Delivery will be completed when we deliver the Products to the address you gave us.

1.29 The Products will be your responsibility from the completion of delivery.

1.30 You own the Products once we have received payment in full, including all applicable delivery charges.

International delivery

1.31 Outside the UK, we deliver only to the member states of the European Union, Norway, USA and Canada (International Delivery Destinations) unless we agree otherwise in writing. If you wish to order from outside these International Delivery Destinations, please contact us at info@addalit.com to check whether we are able to deliver to your country.

1.32 If you order Products from our site for delivery to one of the International Delivery Destinations, your order may be subject to import duties and taxes that are applied when the delivery reaches that destination. Please note that we have no control over these charges and we cannot predict their amount.

1.33 You will be responsible for payment of any such import duties and taxes. Please contact your local customs office for further information before placing your order.

1.34 You must comply with all applicable laws and regulations of the country for which the Products are destined. We will not be liable or responsible if you break any such law.

Price of products and delivery charges

1.35 The prices of the Products will be as quoted on our site from time to time. We take all reasonable care to ensure that the prices of Products are correct at the time when the relevant information was entered onto the system. However if we discover an error in the price of Product(s) you ordered, please see clause 1.40 for what happens in this event.

1.36 Prices for our Products may change from time to time, but changes will not affect any order which we have confirmed with a Dispatch Confirmation.

1.37 The price of a Product includes VAT (where applicable) at the applicable current rate chargeable in the UK for the time being. However, if the rate of VAT changes between the date of your order and the date of delivery, we will adjust the VAT you pay, unless you have already paid for the Products in full before the change in VAT takes effect.

1.38 The price of a Product does not include delivery charges. Our delivery charges (including VAT) are as follows:

(a) UK: £25

(b) European Union, Switzerland and Norway: £45

1.40 Our site contains a large number of Products. It is always possible that, despite our reasonable efforts, some of the Products on our site may be incorrectly priced. We will normally check prices as part of our dispatch procedures so that:

(a) where the Product's correct price is less than the price stated on our site, we will charge the lower amount when dispatching the Products to you. However, if the pricing error is obvious and unmistakeable and could have reasonably been recognised by you as a mispricing, we do not have to provide the Products to you at the incorrect (lower) price; and

(b) if the Product's correct price is higher than the price stated on our site, we will contact you as soon as possible to inform you of this error and we will give you the option of continuing to purchase the Product at the correct price or cancelling your order. We will not process your order until we have your instructions. If we are unable to contact you using the contact details you provided during the order process, we will treat the order as cancelled and notify you in writing.

How to pay

1.41 You can only pay for Products using a debit card or credit card, or via BACS, CHAPS or wire transfer. We accept the following cards: Visa (credit and debit), Visa Electron, MasterCard, Maestro, Solo.

1.42 Payment for the Products and all applicable delivery charges is in advance. We will charge your debit card or credit card as soon as you place your order. If you are paying by any other method, we will not process your order until we have first received your payment in cleared funds.

Our liability if you are a consumer

This clause 1.42 only applies if you are a consumer.

1.56 If we fail to insist that you perform any of your obligations under these Terms, or if we do not enforce our rights against you, or if we delay in doing so, that will not mean that we have waived our rights against you and will not mean that you do not have to comply with those obligations.
