2. USE OF OUR WEBPAGE

3. SERVICE AVAILABILITY
The articles that are displayed throughout the website can be sent worldwide.
4. EXECUTION OF THE AGREEMENT
The information contained in these Conditions and the details contained in this website do not constitute an offer to sell, but an invitation to tender. No agreement will exist between you and us in respect of any product unless and until we accept your order. If your tender is not accepted and a charge has already been made to your account, it will be refunded in full. To place an order, you must follow the online purchasing procedure and click on "Authorise payment". Soon thereafter you will receive an email acknowledging receipt of your order (the "Order Confirmation"). Please note that this does not mean that your order has been accepted; since it is an offer you make us to buy one or more products. All orders are subject to our acceptance, which will be notified through an email confirming that the product has been dispatched (the "Shipping Confirmation"). The agreement between you and us for the purchase of a product (the "Agreement") will be formalised only upon our sending the Shipping Confirmation to you.
The Agreement will only refer to those products listed in the Shipping Confirmation. We will not be obliged to supply any ordered product until shipping has been confirmed by means of a Shipping Confirmation.
5. AVAILABILITY OF PRODUCTS
All orders are subject to availability of products. If difficulties arise in respect of the supply of products, or if any particular product is not in stock, we reserve the right to inform you about substitute products with the same or higher quality, which you will be able to order. If you do not want to order any of those substitute products, we will refund any prepaid amount.
6. REFUSAL TO PROCESS AN ORDER
We reserve the right to remove any product from this website at any time and to remove, or modify any material or content thereof. Although we will do our best to always process all orders, exceptional circumstances may require us to refuse processing an order after sending the Order Confirmation, therefore we reserve the right to do so at any time, in our sole discretion.
We will not be liable to you or to any third party for removing any product from this website, regardless of whether the product has been sold or not, for removing or modifying any material or web page content, or for refusing to process an order after having sent you the Order Confirmation.
7. SHIPPING AND DELIVERY
We ship worldwide with Corres Express (Spain) and DHL (international).
The items will be shipped to the delivery address that the client has indicated when placing the order.
Once the order has been dispatched from paloma wool warehouse, an e-mail will be sent to the client notifying him/her of the orders dispatch. The order will be sent to the delivery address that the client has stated in the registry form- it is important that the client ensures that address details are correct as these cannot be modified, “paloma wool” cannot be held liable for lost orders related to an incorrect address or incomplete information entered on an order.
For security reasons paloma wool will not send any order to a post office nor will it accept an order when it is not possible to identify the person making the order or the address. The liability of the items of Paloma Wool will be transferred to the client once the order has been delivered.
Delivery to Non-EU countries can incure additional custom duties and value added taxes (VAT), which are not included in the price and shipping cost listed on our website. We are not responsible for covering these expenses.
Note: The timeframe refers to working days –week ends excluded- from when the order may have been dispatched from the warehouse. The order made by the client will be delivered in the indicated timeframe from when the dispatch has been made from the warehouse.
8. DELIVERY FAILURE
If after two attempts delivery of your parcel becomes impossible, we will try to find a safe place to leave it, and will also leave a note to let you know where your parcel is and how to pick it up. If you are not going to be in the place of delivery at the convened time, please contact us to agree on another delivery date.
If 15 days after your parcel is available for delivery the parcel has not been delivered for reasons not attributable to us, we will understand that you want to cancel the Agreement and it will therefore be terminated. Following said termination we will refund you the price paid for such products as soon as possible and in any event within a maximum of 30 days from the date in which we deem the Agreement to be terminated. In such case, we will be authorised to charge you the transportation costs arising from the shipping and termination costs.
9. PASSING OF PRODUCT OWNERSHIP AND PASSING OF RISK
You will bear all risks associated with the products from the moment of their delivery. You will acquire the ownership of the products the moment we receive full payment of all amounts payable in respect of them, including shipping costs, or at the time of delivery (as defined in clause 9 above) if delivery takes place at a later time.
10. PRICE AND PAYMENT
The price of each product will be as quoted in our website, except in cases of obvious error. Although we do our best to ensure that all prices listed on the website are accurate, errors may occur. If we find an error in the price of any product you have ordered, we will inform you as soon as possible and give you the option to either reconfirm your order at the correct price or cancel it. If we are unable to contact you, the order will be deemed as cancelled and you will receive a full refund of the amounts you have prepaid.
We are under no obligation to supply you with any product at the incorrect lower price (even after we have sent you a Shipping Confirmation) if the pricing error is obvious and unequivocal and could have reasonably been recognised by you as a mispricing.
Once you have finished shopping, all the items you wish to purchase will be added to your cart and the next step will be processing and paying for your order.
For some countries we display and collect payments in the local currency when you select your shipping country. You will be charged in the currency listed at checkout. Paloma wool is not responsible for any currency exchange fees charged by banks.
You can pay for your order using Visa and MasterCard cards. In order to minimise the risk of unauthorised access, your credit card data will be encrypted. Once we receive your order, we will hold the price in your credit card account (pre-authorisation) in order to ensure that there are sufficient funds to complete the transaction. The charge on your card will be made at the time your order leaves our warehouse.

We will not be liable for any failure or delay in performance of any of our obligations under an Agreement that is caused by events outside our reasonable control ("Force Majeure Event").

We will take all reasonable action to put an end to the Force Majeure Event or to find a solution that allows us to fulfil our obligations under the Agreement despite the existence of the Force Majeure Event.
Under no circumstance our failure to demand your strict compliance with any of your obligations under an Agreement or under this Conditions, or our failure to exercise any of our rights or actions under said Agreement or the Conditions, will constitute a waiver or limitation on such rights or remedies, and it will not exempt you from compliance with such obligations.
No waiver by us to a specific right or action will constitute a waiver to other rights or actions arising from the Agreement or the Conditions.
No waiver by us to any of the present Conditions or to the rights and actions arising from the Agreement will become effective unless it is expressly pronounced a waiver and formalised as such, and a notice in writing is served to you in this respect in accordance with the provisions of Notifications section above.
If any of these Conditions or any provision of an Agreement are declared null and void by a final decision issued by a competent authority, the remaining terms and conditions will remain in effect without being affected by said declaration.

Neither party will have action in respect of any misrepresentation made by the other party, orally or in writing, prior to the date of the Agreement (except in case of fraudulent misrepresentation), the only action that this party will have is an action for breach of contract in accordance with the provisions of these Conditions.
