Terms of SaleBy placing an order you are offering to purchase a product on and subject to the following terms and conditions. All orders are subject to availability and confirmation of the order price. Dispatch times may vary according to availability and subject to any delays resulting from postal delays or force majeure for which we will not be responsible. In order to contract with STC you must be over 18 years of age and possess a valid credit or debit card issued by a bank acceptable to us. STC retains the right to refuse any request made by you. If your order is accepted we will inform you by email and we will confirm the identity of the party that you have contracted with. This will usually be STC or may in some cases be a third party. Where a contract is made with a third party, STC is not acting as either agent or principal and the contract is made between yourself and that third party and will be subject to the terms of sale which they supply you. When placing an order you undertake that all details you provide to us are true and accurate, that you are an authorized user of the credit or debit card used to place your order and that there are sufficient funds to cover the cost of the goods. All prices advertised are subject to such changes.
(a) ContractWhen you place an order, you will receive an acknowledgement e-mail confirming receipt of your order: this email will only be an acknowledgement and will not constitute acceptance of your order. A contract between us will not be formed until we send you confirmation by e-mail that the goods that you ordered have been dispatched to you. Only those goods listed in the confirmation e-mail sent at the time of dispatch will be included in the contract formed.
(b) Pricing and AvailabilityWhilst we try and ensure that all details, descriptions and prices, which appear on this Website, are accurate, errors may occur. If we discover an error in the price of any goods that you have ordered, we will inform you of this as soon as possible and give you the option of reconfirming your order at the correct price or cancelling it. If we are unable to contact you we will treat the order as cancelled. If you cancel and you have already paid for the goods, you will receive a full refund.
(c) Risk of Loss/DeliveryAll items purchased from STC are made pursuant to a shipment contract. This means that the risk of loss and title for such items pass to you upon our delivery to the carrier. Delivery costs will be charged in addition; such additional charges are clearly displayed where applicable.
(d) PaymentUpon receiving your order we carry out a standard authorization check on your payment card to ensure there are sufficient funds to fulfill the transaction. Your card will be debited upon authorization being received. The monies received upon the debiting of your card shall be treated as a deposit against the value of the goods you wish to purchase. Once the goods have been dispatched and you have been sent a confirmation email the monies paid, as a deposit shall be used as consideration for the value of goods you have purchased as listed in the confirmation email.
(e) RefundsIf a defect is found in the purchased product, you must: (i) notify STC, in writing, of the defect within ten (10) days of the date the defect was discovered, (ii) with proof of purchase with the date thereof as well as a description of the alleged defect in reasonable detail is presented to the satisfaction of STC, (iii) and at STC’s request, representative samples of the allegedly defective Product are returned to STC in accordance with STC’s instructions, then STC shall provide either (a) a refund of the purchase price, including sales tax and shipping charges, or (b) a replacement of the product. The specific method of dealing with the issue shall be chosen by STC, in accordance with the nature of each case. In cases where a product is refunded, the purchase and sale contract between STC and the customer shall automatically become void. In such cases, STC shall refund the purchase price in exchange for the return of the defective Product. The refund shall be made in cash or by cancellation of the credit card transaction. The method of refund shall be decided by STC in accordance with the nature of the case.
