In the event of a period of inactivity during the connection, it is possible that the DOLPHINS & SHARKS Products that you have chosen will no longer be available. You will then be asked to re-enter your selection of DOLPHINS & SHARKS Products from the beginning.
Before any final order, you will have the opportunity to check the details of your order and its total price, and to correct any potential errors, before confirming that order in order to express your acceptance.
For any order that you place through our Website, a confirmation email will be sent to you with your order number and the details of the DOLPHINS & SHARKS Products you have ordered.
All of the steps necessary to place an order are described on our Website.
We keep a copy of any orders for 6 years.
Despite all the care we take in presenting the DOLPHINS & SHARKS Products on our Website, we cannot guarantee that their real appearance will correspond exactly to how they appear on our Website, your computer screen or mobile device.
Where permitted by law, we reserve the right to limit the quantities of DOLPHINS & SHARKS Products that we supply, and/or to refuse any order for any reason including orders that appear to us to be unusual, designed to permit resale of DOLPHINS & SHARKS Products, fraudulent orders or orders placed in bad faith. In addition, we reserve the right to refuse any order from a client with whom there is a dispute concerning the payment on a previous order.
Certain DOLPHINS & SHARKS Products may be subject to certain import restrictions specific to your country. In that circumstance, you will be notified at the checkout page and be asked to remove the item from your cart.
Article 4 : Price
The price of DOLPHINS & SHARKS Products is given in Euros or Sterling (for Great Britain), including taxes and duties, respecting the rules of the shipping country. By exception, the price of the DOLPHINS & SHARKS Products to be delivered in the United States are shown in Dollars with duties calculated in the cart.
You will not receive a VAT refund for your purchases on our Website.
A printed invoice will be sent with your DOLPHINS & SHARKS Products.
We pay the closest attention to the accuracy of the prices on our Website. However, in the case of an error on our part and subject to applicable law, we reserve the right to not provide the DOLPHINS & SHARKS Products for which the posted price was manifestly incorrect.
We can modify the prices listed on our Website at any time and without prior notice. However, such modified prices will only be applied to new orders made after the price change, and will not affect the pricing on orders that have already been placed.
There is no duty if the DOLPHINS & SHARKS Products are shipped to you in the European Union. Outside the EU, customs duty and import tax are specific to the particular country. Customs authorities in each country calculate duty and tax based on a number of factors, including :
At the checkout page, you will have information on the cost of shipping your items before you make the purchase. The total cost of your order includes :
The final total cost with shipping fees will be recalculated once you have specified your delivery address and chosen your shipment method.
You will pay for the DOLPHINS & SHARKS Product and the cross-border delivery in a single checkout.
For countries where tax and duty is pre-calculated and pre-paid, you will generally not see Customs paperwork and your total cost is fixed and guaranteed. You should be aware that the actual tax and duty charged by the Customs authorities in your country sometimes turns out to be higher or lower than the amount you paid, for a number of reasons. For example, a particular Customs authority may classify your product in a different category in the Harmonised Code (HS) system from the category used by the Total Cost Calculator, or your local Customs authorities may (for whatever reason) use a different formula to calculate the duty; or the calculation may be affected by a change in currency exchange rates between the time of our calculation and the time the tax and duty is paid to Customs authorities. In such situations, you will not receive a refund (if the amount is less) or be charged extra (if the amount is greater). This is due to the administrative time and costs that such arrangements would require.
Article 5 : Conditions of payment
The only method of payment accepted is by credit card (Visa, Mastercard, Carte Bleue and Maestro).
Your credit card will be charged at time of confirmation of your order.
In jurisdictions where permitted, your payment will be regarded as a deposit. Consequently, if, for any reason beyond our control, we could not deliver the products you ordered, we would refund the amount you paid to us, but we won't pay any damages. Moreover, if this amount was paid to us more than 3 months prior to the report of our inability to deliver to you, additional interest calculated at the legal rate will be deducted, the countdown beginning retroactively on the day of your payment.
For that purpose, you will guarantee that you are the holder of the bank card to be charged or debited and that the name appearing on that card is in fact your own.
You will then provide the 16-digit number and the expiry date that appear on the front of your bank card and, as applicable, the number of the visual cryptogram appearing on the back. This information will be encrypted using current industry standards (including the SSL protocol) (confirmed by the appearance of the “https” in the address displayed by your navigator).
The security of this bank information and the online check towards banking institution and agencies will be made by Banque Populaire, through its safe solution Systempay.
If the amount owed cannot be charged or debited for any reason whatsoever (objection, refusal by issuing center, etc.), the order will be immediately cancelled and the online purchasing process will be terminated.
In order to fight fraud and abusive usage of bank cards, Systempay may store and automatically process information concerning each order, including the bank card information, but at all times consistent with the security norm of PCI-DSS Version 3.0.
Systempay and DOLPHINS & SHARKS are the recipients of the data related to each order. Failure of transmission of data related to an order will prevent the completion and analysis of the corresponding transaction.
Any non-payment due to a fraudulent use of a bank card will result in recording of the information related to the order associated with that non-payment in a file of non-payment events set up by Systempay. An irregular statement or an anomaly may also be subject to specific treatment.
In accordance with the Privacy Law dated 6 January 1978 related to Data Protection, you have the right, at all times, to access, correct and oppose to all or part of your personal data, by writing in a letter including your identity, to Systempay.
Some banks charge additional fees for foreign money transfers and credit card transactions in foreign currencies. If your order is not priced in the currency of your country, you should confirm the applicability of any fees before placing your order with your bank. DOLPHINS & SHARKS will not be liable for additional charges associated with foreign currency transactions.
