  • The conclusion of sales and availability of stock
    1. Users may place orders for Goods, which Home Cloud may accept or reject. Whether or not Home Cloud accepts an order depends on the availability of Goods, correctness of the information relating to the Goods (including without limitation the price) and receipt of payment or payment authorisation by Home Cloud for the Goods.
    2. NOTE: Home Cloud 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 Home Cloud come into effect (the “Sale”). This is regardless of any communication from Home Cloud stating that your order or payment has been confirmed. Home Cloud will indicate the rejection of your order (by Home Cloud itself) by cancelling it and, as soon as possible thereafter, refunding you for any amount already paid.
    3. 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 or your collection of the Goods, you may cancel the Sale only in accordance with the Returns Policy.
    4. Placing Goods in a wishlist or 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 the stock is no longer available or the price thereof might change without notice to you. You cannot hold Home Cloud 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.
    5. You acknowledge that stock of all Goods on offer is limited and that pricing may change at any time without notice to you. In the case of Goods for sale by Home Cloud, Home Cloud will take all reasonable efforts to monitor stock levels and ensure that when the 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 placing an order, Home Cloud will notify you and you will be entitled to a refund of the amount paid by you for such Goods.
    6. Certain Goods may not be purchased for resale. Should we suspect that any Goods are being purchased for sale, we are entitled to cancel your order immediately without notice to you.

    2. Payment can be made for Goods via –
      1. debit card;
      2. credit card: where payment is made by credit card, we may require additional information in order to authorise and/or verify the validity of payment. In such cases we are entitled to withhold delivery until such time as the additional information is received by us and authorisation is obtained by us for the amounts. If we do not receive authorisation your order for the Goods will be cancelled. You warrant that you are fully authorised to use the credit card supplied for purposes of paying the Goods. You also warrant that your credit card has sufficient available funds to cover all the costs incurred as a result of the services used on the Website;

  • Errors:
    1. We shall take all reasonable efforts to accurately reflect the description, availability, purchase price and delivery charges of Goods on the Website.
