About the Website
Subject to these Terms, users may use the Website to order and purchase Goods. Additionally, please review the following documents which forms an integral part of these Terms:
1. Cancellations, Returns and Refunds Policy
The Website is intended only for users seeking to ship the Goods to physical addresses in the countries specified in the Shipping Policy. Therefore, we will not accept orders for Goods to be shipped by the Company outside of these regions.
If your shipping address is outside the regions specified in the Shipping Policy, or you would like to purchase an e-book version of the Goods, we will suggest that you contact another website operated by a different business than us, where you can consider placing an order. That other website operates under its own terms and sale and policies, and not our terms and policies. We are not responsible for that other website’s terms, policies, and practices. Any issues you encounter regarding those other websites should be addressed to those websites, not us.
The Company may change the inventory and variety of Goods on the Website at any time. Therefore, the fact that certain Goods were offered for sale on the Website at some point does not guarantee that they will be offered for sale in the future as well.
The Company does not guarantee the scope, availability, or minimal variety of any Goods. If Goods you ordered are out of stock, the Company will inform you via the Website, phone, or email address you provided and reserves the right to delay the shipment as long as reasonably required for the Company to replenish its stock.
Goods you selected to order on the Website will be listed in the Website’s "shopping cart" until you complete the order process or remove them from the cart. The Company may determine a minimum amount for the purchase of Goods through the Website as well as set maximum quantities for the purchase of Goods.
Errors in the Order Process
In order for us to provide you with the Goods you ordered, we must receive your order in a proper and orderly manner, including all the details required to contact you and to ship the Goods to you. The Company cannot deliver the Goods ordered if the order was not properly recorded on its systems, or if it was received incorrectly, even if the source of the fault is in the Company’s computers.
If you do not receive confirmation from the Company within a reasonable timeframe from the date of the order, by phone or e-mail, it’s very likely that there was an error in the order. In this case, we ask that you contact the Company. We will try to work out the issue and assist you in completing the order or canceling it if you prefer.
If you provide incorrect details when placing your order, we cannot guarantee that the Goods will reach the intended recipient. In the event that the products are returned to us due to incorrect details you provided, you will be charged for shipping, handling and restocking fees. Please be sure to complete accurate and up-to-date information.
Online Contact Form
When you contact us, you should refrain from sending us inquiries content that is unlawful, sexually explicit, harassing, insulting, hostile, harmful, threatening, rude, racist, offends the public, encourages the commission of a criminal offense, may constitute a basis for prosecution or civil liability, slander, infringes on privacy or constitutes another violation of the law. The Company reserves the right not to assist those who contact it with inquiries of such a nature.
The price of each item appears on that item’s page. Prices already include VAT, where applicable by law. Prices shown do not include handling and shipping fees, which will be explicitly presented when you place your order, depending on the shipping destination.
The Company may update the prices of the Goods on the Website from time to time and without prior notice. The price valid in relation to the order you placed is the price that was presented when you completed the order process (which includes the completion and approval of payment details information). If you abandoned the ordering process, and returned later to complete it, prices may have been updated in the meantime. In that case, you will be asked to confirm the order under the updated pricing.
Although we make efforts to continuously review the prices listed on the Website, there may sometimes be an error that results in an incorrect price being displayed on the Website. In that case we will contact you after you have placed your order, inform you what the correct price of the Goods and allow you to either confirm the purchase at the correct price, or cancel the order. If you cancel, we will refund the amount you were charged, back to your original payment method. In that case, we will not be under any obligation to supply the Goods to you, and you will not have any complaints against the Company.
The Company cannot guarantee that the prices of the Goods on the Website will necessarily be the cheapest, or that the payment or shipping terms will be the most favorable.
Payments, Payment Terms and Order Confirmation
Payment for Goods is made by third party payment processors such as Isracard, Paypal and Bit (each a “Payment Processor”). The Company reserves the right to support different types of payment methods on the Website, and allow the use of additional payment methods. The Website uses Israel’s currency (NIS) as its base currency, but for ease of use allows users to view items on the Website on their local currency. Our Payment Processors may also allow transactions to be completed in other currencies such as USD or EUR. Any decision to allow such transactions in other currencies is at the sole discretion of the Payment Processor (and will be displayed prior to checkout on the checkout page). The Company bears no responsibility in connection therewith, including with respect to any extra costs related to foreign exchange fees.
Once you have entered your payment details and completed the order process, an email confirming that we have received your order will be sent to you, along with a receipt.
If the payment details you provided are not valid, or if the Payment Processor denies the transaction, the transaction will not be completed. If the transaction completes despite one of the foregoing events occurring, the Company reserves the right to cancel the order after contacting you to update the order.
In addition to the price of the Goods you ordered, an additional shipping fee may be charged. The shipping fee will appear at the end of the order process under the Goods you have chosen to order. The full rates of the shipping fees are calculated based on the shipping address you provided.
The Company may change the shipping fees from time to time. The shipping fee applicable in relation to the order you made is the fee that was presented to you when you completed the order process.
Promotions, Benefits and Discounts
The Company may offer Website promotions, benefits, discounts, and coupons of various types (in accordance with the terms of each coupon as published on the Website or on the coupon itself). Subject to the provisions of any law relating to promotions, the Company may at any time terminate these promotions, benefits and discounts, or the validity of the coupons, replace them or change them, without the need to provide any prior notice. This does not detract from your right to use coupons or gift cards that have not yet expired in accordance with the amount stated in them.
Please note: Any change in your order details or price, whatever the reason, will be followed by a re-examination of your eligibility for a promotion, benefit, or a discount. Thus, for example, if you purchased Goods and were entitled to a benefit in respect of its purchase, but the Goods were not in stock, you will not be entitled to the same benefit; If you replaced the Goods, which was purchased during a sale, with replacement Goods that did not qualify for the sale, you will not be entitled to the same benefit that applied the purchase of the original Goods; If your order amount has decreased due to the fact that the number of Goods provided to you is different than your original order, your eligibility for the promotion, discount or benefit that would have been granted to you may be denied due to the reduction of the order total price.
These examples do not exhaust the possible changes in your eligibility for promotions, benefits, or discounts on the Website. At the same time, the Company will try to inform you by phone or email and receive your instructions in case your eligibility for a promotion, benefit or discount is denied or changed due to a change in your order details.
