5. Conclusion of Sales and availability of stock
5.1. Registered users may place orders for Goods, which Levisons may accept or reject. Whether or not Levisons accepts an order depends on the availability of Goods, correctness of the information relating to the Goods (including without limitation the price) and receipt of payment or payment authorisation by Levisons for the Goods.
5.2. NOTE: Levisons will indicate the acceptance of your order by delivering the Goods to you, and only at that point will an agreement of sale between you and Levisons come into effect (the “Sale”). This is regardless of any communication from Levisons stating that your order or payment has been confirmed. Levisons will indicate the rejection of your order by cancelling it and, as soon as possible thereafter, refunding you for any amount already paid.
5.3. Orders may not be cancelled after receipt of payment of the Goods by Levisons.
5.4. Placing Goods in a shopping basket without completing the purchase cycle does not constitute an order for such Goods, and as such, Goods may be removed from the shopping basket if stock is no longer available. You cannot hold Levisons liable if such Goods are not available when you complete or attempt to complete the purchase cycle at a later stage.
5.5. You acknowledge that stock of all Goods on offer is limited. Levisons will take all reasonable efforts to monitor stock levels and ensure that when stock is no longer available, they are discontinued on the Website. However, we cannot guarantee the availability of stock. When Goods are no longer available after placing an order, Levisons will notify you and you will be entitled to a refund of the amount paid by you for such Goods.
6.1. We are committed to providing secure online payment facilities. All transactions are encrypted using appropriate encryption technology.
6.2. Payment can be made for Goods via secure Paygate payment gateway.
6.2.1. When payment is made by credit card, Paygate will require additional information in order to authorise and/or verify the validity of payment. In such cases we reserve the right to withhold delivery until such time as the additional information is received by us and authorisation is obtained by us for the amounts. If we do not receive authorisation, your order for the Goods will be cancelled. You warrant that you are fully authorised to use the credit card supplied for purposes of paying the Goods. You also warrant that your credit card has sufficient available funds to cover all the costs incurred as a result of the services used on the Website.
6.3. Once you have selected your payment method and you accept these Terms and Conditions, you will be directed to a link to a secure site for payment of the applicable purchase price for the Goods.
7. Delivery of goods
7.1. Levisons offers one method of delivery of Goods to you, which is via courier.
7.2. Please see details of our delivery and shipping terms and conditions in our FAQ: Shipping Information, which is incorporated by reference.
7.3. Where it accepts your order, Levisons will deliver the Goods to you as soon as reasonably possible, but no later than 30 (thirty) days of receipt of your payment (“Delivery Period”). We will notify you if we are unable to deliver the Goods during the Delivery Period. You may then, within 7 (seven) days of receiving such notification elect whether or not to cancel your order for the Goods. If you elect to cancel your order, we will reimburse you for the purchase price.
We shall take all reasonable efforts to accurately reflect the description, availability, purchase price and delivery charges of Goods on the Website. However, should there be any errors of whatsoever nature on the Website (which are not due to our gross negligence), we shall not be liable for any loss, claim or expense relating to a transaction based on any error, save – in the case of any incorrect purchase price – to the extent of refunding you for any amount already paid, or otherwise as set out in the Returns Policy.
