It is your responsibility to seek any relevant information from the local authorities in your country, with regards to possible import limits on products which you are considering ordering.
4. STAGES OF CONTRACT CONCLUSION.
On placing his/her first online order, any new client is required to create a “Client Account”; a username (“login”) and password will be requested. On confirmation of your order, you will be redirected to your account via a secure connection and provided with an order summary. Your order can be altered at any point prior to final confirmation. It will not be definitively placed until certain information has been entered and the final confirmation made. Any order placed on our site will be automatically cancelled in the event of the non-receipt of payment. WOODMAP LTD stores order forms and invoices on its servers (a copy can be provided on request against payment of any reproduction costs). The contract is validly concluded following your “double click” (it is possible to check the details of your order and the total price, as well as to correct any possible errors, before confirming and accepting it). The taking into account of your order is confirmed by an email automatically generated by our website and sent to the email address entered during the client account creation process.
The prices featured on the website are shown in euros, and are not inclusive of delivery fees. Delivery fees are calculated automatically, according to each order; they are displayed in your order summary prior to final confirmation. Where this is not the case, you will be sent a personalised quote. Any order delivered outside Mauritius could be subject to relevant local taxes, customs duties, dues and fees for customs clearance on delivery. You will bear any such payment which remains your responsibility. Relevant information should be sought from the local authorities in the country of delivery.
Any payment made would not be considered as being a deposit. The accepted means of payment are specifically detailed on the “Means of payment” page of the website. You can never, on the grounds of a claim, withhold the entirety or part of sums owed, nor apply offset compensation. In the event of a late payment of either some or the entirety of the amount due by the deadline, WOODMAP LTD subsequently may, and without the need for any notification, immediately cancel delivery, without your right to claim any damages. As part of its fight against fraud, WOODMAP LTD may request proof of identity, address and the means of payment used. In this instance, your order will be processed once these documents have been received. Where these supporting documents are not received or are not deemed compliant, the order will be cancelled and the account blocked.
7. DELIVERY TIME FRAMES.
Unless otherwise indicated, WOODMAP LTD delivers goods without any justified delay and no later than thirty days after the date of your order confirmation. Delivery is provided to the address submitted when placing the order. Delivery is understood to mean the transfer of physical possession or control of goods to the consumer. WOODMAP LTD cannot be held responsible for any delivery delay exclusively due to the non-availability of the client following several proposed delivery times on the part of the courier.
Any risk of loss or damage to goods is transferred to you at the moment you yourself, or a third party other than the courier proposed by WOODMAP LTD and appointed by you, takes physical possession of these goods. We recommend refusing delivery where a package has been damaged, opened or repackaged and where any specific reservations and circumstances have not been detailed on the delivery note. We encourage you to immediately check the contents of the package and to contact WOODMAP LTD immediately should any product be damaged or missing with respect to the packing list. We recommend that any complaints or reservations be followed up in writing and by registered mail with the courier within a period of three days as of delivery, in order to ensure your right of legal recourse against said party.
