When you place your ”Order”, it represents an offer to purchase a Product from us. Your offer is accepted once we email you an order confirmation. Any Product on the same order which we have not confirmed in an order confirmation email are not part of that contract.

Alvar Carto shall under no circumstances be held liable for any special losses due to specific circumstances of the User and/or Customer, indirect or consequential losses or wasted expenditure.

Orders are placed and received exclusively via the Site. Before ordering from us, it is the Customer’s responsibility to check and determine full ability to receive the Products. Correct Customer’s address and post code/zip code, User’s up-to-date telephone number and email address are absolutely necessary to ensure successful delivery of Products.

All information asked on the checkout page must be filled in precisely and accurately. Alvar Carto will not be responsible for missed delivery because of a wrong delivery address or an inappropriate phone number.

Certain products or services may be available exclusively online through the website. These products or services may have limited quantities and are subject to return or exchange only according to our Return Policy described in these terms.

We have made every effort to display as accurately as possible the colors and images of our products that appear at the Site. We cannot guarantee that your computer monitor’s display of any color or image will be accurate.

We reserve the right, but are not obligated, to limit the sales of our products or Services to any person, geographic region or jurisdiction. We may exercise this right on a case-by-case basis.

We might temporarily change the fees of our Products.

If you want to change some parameters, Customer addresses, etc., please contact us as soon as possible. We are not bound to make such modifications in your order, but we will proceed with such requests on a case-by-case basis. Replacement of Products or refunds to User for Products claimed as damaged or not received are subject to Alvar Carto investigation and discretion.

Alvar Carto will review replacement of Products or refund requests within a time period 14 days after we received the order. If a Product is missing, damaged or has a print error, Alvar Carto will replace the erroneous Product with a new Product. To issue a refund process based on the aforementioned reasons, contact [email protected]. Refund requests will be processed and responded within five (5) working days. Keep in mind that the actual refund to your bank account might take longer depending on your bank’s policies and Stripe (payment gateway). For the sake of clarity, Alvar Carto is not responsible for situations when the Customer has provided incorrect information, such as wrong Customer name or address. Those situations will be reviewed case-by-case basis and by our sole discretion.

Due to the customisation of the Product, Customer has no right of withdrawal for the Product after an order is placed.

10. Delivery

Alvar Carto delivers to Users/Customers to most places in the world. Customer is responsible for delivery prices. Delivery prices are additional to the Product’s price and may vary depending on delivery location and/or sort of Products, and additional charges may be added to the order for remote or difficult to access locations that require special attention. Standard delivery charges are shown on our checkout page; however we reserve the right to advise you of any additional delivery charges that apply to your specific delivery address.

Alvar Carto cannot guarantee delivery dates and accept no responsibility, apart from advising you of any known delay, for Products that are delivered after the estimated delivery date. Standard delivery times are shown on the Site. It is only an average estimation, and some delivery can take longer, or alternatively be delivered much faster. All delivery estimates given at the time of placing and confirming order are subject to change. In any case, we will do our best to contact you and advise you of all changes. We try our best to make delivery of Product as simple as possible.

If the Customer fails to receive or pick up the delivered Product within the delivery company’s time limit, the Product is returned back to Alvar Carto. In principle, Alvar Carto is not responsible to compensate the Customer in any way, but we review each failed delivery on case by case basis.

If the delivery time is exceeded by 30 days, the product is deemed as lost. In a case of a lost product, Alvar Carto will deliver a corresponding product to the customer on its own expense, but is not obligated to compensate the customer in any other way.

Ownership of the Products will only pass to Customers when we have received a full payment, including delivery charges.

11. Accuracy of billing and account information

We reserve the right to refuse any order you place with us. We may, in our sole discretion, limit or cancel quantities purchased per person, per household or per order. These restrictions may include orders placed by or under the same customer account, the same credit card, and/or orders that use the same billing and/or shipping address. In the event that we make a change to or cancel an order, we may attempt to notify you by contacting the e-mail and/or billing address/phone number provided at the time the order was made. We reserve the right to cancel, limit or prohibit orders that, in our sole judgment, appear to be placed by dealers, resellers or distributors.
