ORDERS

Order requests. Once you placed an order request through our Website, it will be sent to us so that we can confirm our acceptance. Our acceptance of your order request will take place when we email you to accept it and thank you for your order, at which point a contract will come into existence between you and us.

If we cannot accept your order request. If we are unable to accept your order request, we will inform you of this and will not charge you for the product. This might be because the product is out of stock, because of unexpected limits on our resources which we could not reasonably plan for, because we have identified an error in the price or description of the product or because we are unable to meet a delivery date request you have specified.

For individual customers only. You represent and warrant that you place orders on our Website for your own private use only and not for re-sale or leasing purposes. To the extent that we make our products available to you at a discount to our normal listed prices, you acknowledge (a) that such discounted prices are offered solely in reliance upon your representation and warranty set out above; and (b) that a breach of such undertaking by you will result in loss and damage to us (including, without limitation, loss of business and profits, which you accept would be direct and foreseeable losses arising from any breach of such undertaking). Accordingly, in the event that you re-sell or on-lease the products (or any part of them) to any third party then (i) we may terminate this contract forthwith; and (ii) upon our demand, you shall pay to us, as and by way of liquidated damages for such breach, a sum equal to the difference in the price paid by you for the relevant products under our contract and the price on our then current list price for such products. You acknowledge and agree that such liquidated damages represent a pre-estimate of the loss and damage which we are likely to suffer as a result of such breach.

We only sell to Hong Kong. Our Website is solely for the promotion and sale of our products in Hong Kong. At this point in time, we do not accept orders from or make delivery to locations outside Hong Kong unless otherwise agreed in writing by both parties. Once we are ready to accept orders from outside of Hong Kong, we will inform our customers by making an announcement on our Website.

Significant changes to the products and these Terms. As stated in the product descriptions on our Website, we may make other changes to the Product, which may be significant.
