Unless otherwise stipulated on the Site, all charges are in the EUR currency. Subject to clause 4.12 below, this is the total that you will pay for receipt of the ordered Product. You acknowledge and accept that we can not calculate in advance the applicable custom duties, taxes, fees and charges, so you hereby acknowledge and accept that you will be the only and exclusive responsible for both the payment and declaration of any and all applicable custom duties, taxes, fees and charges, and you hereby undertake to pay them to the competent authorities. Normally such applicable custom duties, taxes, fees and charges will be indicated to you by the courier at the delivery, and you will pay them directly to the courier or to the competent authority that will be indicated to you. We advise you to contact your local authorities before placing an order on our Site, in order to evaluate in advance all applicable custom duties, taxes, fees and charges.
4.3 You shall pay for the Product in full at the time of ordering by supplying us with your credit or debit card details from a credit or debit card company acceptable to us, which we require as a prior condition to process your Order. Alternatively, you may pay by any method that we have said is acceptable to us, but in any event you acknowledge and accept that we shall not be bound to ship and supply any Product, before we have received full payment of your Order Price. Depending on the results of a credit check we reserve the right not to offer certain forms of payment and to refer you to our other forms of payment.

Acceptance shall take place when we expressly accept your Order by email to you, in the form of a document called a “Confirmation of Order” stating that we are accepting your Order. Our Confirmation of Order shall be deemed to come into effect when it has been dispatched by us. Without affecting your obligation to pay us earlier, we may send an invoice to you at any time after we have accepted your Order. Until the time when we accept your Order, we reserve the right to refuse to process your Order and you reserve the right to cancel your Order.

However, we cannot guarantee that we will be able to amend your Order in accordance with your previous instructions, especially in case where the Order has already been accepted by us.
4.12 We try our best to ensure that the price given to you is accurate, but the price of your Order will need to be validated by us as part of our acceptance procedure. If the price for the Order changes before we accept your Order, we will contact you and ask you to confirm that you wish to proceed at the amended price.
