2. Becoming a Customer and Ordering
For ordering Products at the Store you must
- inform your name, address, phone number, e-mail address, payment details and other required information for the transaction;
- be of full legal age
- be the lawful owner of the credit card used for the transaction.
Roberts reserves the right to approve or reject a customer before delivering Products.
3. Product Information and Availability of Products
Before ordering Products, you must ensure that the Products are fit for your intended use. You can use the Product Information available at the Store for verifying this. If the content of the Store is different compared to information provided at another internet site or other source of information, the content of the Store at the time of purchase prevails.
Roberts does not warrant the availability of the Products. Roberts reserves the right without any prior notice or liability to change, suspend or discontinue the manufacture and sale of any Product.
4. Prices, Taxes and Duties and Customs Policies
Price charged for the Product is the price effective at the time you place your order and the price is confirmed in the order confirmation. If the price at the Store is incorrect due to a typo or other comparable mistake, the incorrect price is not binding on Roberts.
In case you use a discount code, the discounted price is indicated at the cashier after you have inserted the discount code.
Roberts is entitled to change the prices without any notice. Changed prices apply to orders placed after the price change has become effective.
Prices and payments are in Euros.
If you order Products from a country or location belonging to EU customs and taxation union, prices are exclusive of transportation and handling cost, value added tax and other applicable taxes.
If you order Products from a country or location not belonging to EU customs and taxation union, the prices are exclusive of transportation and handling costs, but you may have to pay value added taxes or other additional taxes and/or customs duties. You may also be required to pay a brokerage (handling) fee for the shipment. These charges are separate from the price charged by Roberts and are levied once the package reaches the specified destination.
We request that you contact your customs office and ask about import regulations and restrictions as well as applicable taxes and duties before placing your order. It is important for you to become familiar with customs policies for your specific country or location before ordering. Customs regulations differ by country and not knowing their regulations can result in your order incurring high import duties, the delivery being delayed or even returned. Please check with your customs office to see if your country permits the shipment of the Products you are planning to order from us and if any additional licenses or permits are needed.
You are responsible for complying with the laws and regulations in the country of destination including, but not limited those regarding customs procedures and payment of the applicable duties and levies.
5. Processing the Orders and Conclusion of the Contract
Your order is an offer to purchase the Products listed in your Order. We may choose not to accept orders in our sole discretion, particularly notably unusual orders or orders that have not been submitted in good faith. When you place an order to purchase a Product from Roberts, we will send you an e-mail confirming receipt of your order and containing the details of your order (the “Order Acknowledgement E-mail”). The Order Acknowledgement E-mail is acknowledgement that we have received your order, and does not confirm acceptance of your offer to buy the Product(s) ordered. We only accept your offer, and conclude the contract of sale for the Products ordered by you, when we send the e-mail order confirmation to you (the “Order Confirmation E-mail”)
We recommend that you keep the Order Confirmation E-mail for possible further use as the Order Confirmation E-mail is your receipt of the purchase.
Payment can be made by authorized credit cards listed at the Store. All payments will be subject to security checks. Our customer service may contact you to verify your order information and order details.
We deliver Products to European countries via PostNord and to other countries via FedEx courier service.
The estimated delivery time for the ordered Products is 3-7 workdays from the date of order confirmation. The delivery time does not exceed 30 days, unless Roberts has specifically agreed a longer delivery period with you.
Please Note: If your order is returned to us due to a banned/restricted products policy, a wrong address, refusal to pay customs fees or Products seized by customs, refusal to accept the order or because no one was there to accept delivery of your order or other such reason that is attributable to your act or omission, we will not make any refund.
