Conclusion of sales and availability of stock

  • Vigitech will indicate the acceptance of your order by delivering the Goods to you or allowing you to collect them, and only at that point will an agreement of sale between you and Vigitech come into effect. This is regardless of any communication from Vigitech stating that your order or payment has been confirmed. Vigitech will indicate the rejection of your order by cancelling it and, as soon as possible thereafter, refunding you for any amount already paid.
  • Prior to delivery or your collection of the Goods, you may cancel an order at any time provided you do so before receiving a dispatch or delivery notice. After delivery of the Goods, you may return the Goods only in accordance with the Shipping and Returns Policy.
  • Placing Goods in a shopping basket without completing the purchase cycle does not constitute an order for such Goods, and as such, Goods may be removed from the shopping basket if stock is no longer available or the price thereof might change without notice to you. You cannot hold Vigitech liable if such Goods are not available or are not available at the particular price when you complete or attempt to complete the purchase cycle at a later stage.
  • You acknowledge that stock of all Goods on offer is limited and that pricing may change at any time without notice to you. Vigitech will take all reasonable efforts to monitor stock levels and ensure that when stock is no longer available, that offers thereof are discontinued on the Website. However, we cannot guarantee the availability of stock. When Goods are no longer available after you have placed an order, Vigitech will notify you and you will be entitled to a refund of any amount already paid by you for such Goods.
  • Goods may not be purchased for re-sale without prior approval. Should we suspect that any such Goods are being purchased for sale, we are entitled to cancel your order immediately on notice to you.

  • Payment can be made for Goods via -
    • electronic funds transfer: if you pay via electronic funds transfer, payment must be made within 2 (two) days of placing your order. Vigitech will not accept your order if payment has not been received;
