6. Transport and Delivery
Delivery of your order: The goods purchased are delivered within the stipulated period by recorded delivery or via courier service to the delivery address that the purchaser indicates on the order. The estimated delivery period is always shown for each product. If the purchaser orders several articles, the consignment will only be dispatched when all the articles are in stock. If, as a result, however, the order could not then be delivered within 30 working days, DESIGNARENAS will dispatch the out of stock article separately to the purchaser after this period.
If stocks are exhausted or if an article cannot be delivered within 8 weeks (56 days), DESIGNARENAS will contact the purchaser to agree on an acceptable delivery period or to cancel the order completely free of charge. DESIGNARENAS cannot be held liable for damage that might ensue from a product being out of stock or from delayed delivery.
Dispatch and Transport: DESIGNARENAS offers a complete transport service for purchases. Renowned transport companies and courier services are used. Products can be delivered worldwide. All consignments are recorded, so the purchaser must always sign for receipt. Standard delivery foresees ground floor doorstep delivery. Other delivery services, or installation services may be available upon request.
Loss or damage during transport: Loss and/or damage of a product that has been ordered will be borne by DESIGNARENAS. The purchaser is responsible for checking the goods on receipt. The purchaser must notify DESIGNARENAS of possible damage by email to info@DesignArenas.com within 2 working days. DESIGNARENAS reserves the right to refuse the purchaser's request if this term is not respected. On receipt of the notice of damage, DESIGNARENAS will give the purchaser instructions regarding the eventual return of the goods by the purchaser.
Delivery address: The purchaser is responsible for providing a full and correct delivery address. Incorrectly transmitted delivery addresses are the responsibility of the purchaser and may entail extra costs. In the event of errors in the address details of the addressee, DESIGNARENAS cannot under any circumstances be held liable for inability to deliver the products ordered. Circumstances beyond the control of the vendor, whereby he is released from the obligation to deliver are: war, uproar, fire, strikes, accidents and inability to find supplies. Under these circumstances the full amount will be refunded to the purchaser.
7. Cancellation of an order
You may inform us that you wish to refuse a purchase within 14 days of receipt of the product. The purchaser may notify DESIGNARENAS of the cancellation by email to info@DesignArenas.com.
The goods should be returned undamaged, unopened and in the original packaging within 5 working days of this notification. The purchaser should send a copy of the invoice or delivery note and a covering letter indicating his/her full account number (IBAN and BIC code) with the returned goods.
Cancellation is not possible for goods that have been made especially for you (= custom made products). If this is the case, it will be clearly indicated in the product description that you see whilst ordering. In the event of an order cancellation, DESIGNARENAS will refund, within 30 days of acceptance of the return, any sums paid, minus the direct delivery costs (transport and order handling costs). Carriage for the return of the goods is payable by the purchaser. DESIGNARENAS refunds carriage costs only if the purchaser did not receive the article that was ordered or if the article arrived damaged. DESIGNARENAS can refuse to accept or refund returned articles when the packaging has been opened or when the products have been used or damaged by the purchaser.
The purchaser may only return the article after notification from DESIGNARENAS to do so. The purchaser ensures the consignment is adequately franked and registered if the value amounts to more than 50 EUROS. We advise you to use a courier service and to insure the consignment. Always include a copy of the invoice or delivery note and a covering letter mentioning your full account number (IBAN and BIC code). The buyer is responsible for the return carriage costs. Not or insufficiently prepaid consignments are always refused and returned to sender.
