1.2.2 If we have to contact you or give you notice in writing, we will do so by e-mail or by post to the address you provide to us in your order.
2. HOW THE CONTRACT IS FORMED BETWEEN YOU AND US
2.1 We contract with retailers worldwide, so as to make such retailer's merchandise available in your country. In doing this we can provide you with landed cost visibility in multiple currencies on transactions involving such retailer's merchandise.
2.2 By placing an order with us through our site, you acknowledge that your transaction will be with us and not with the respective retailer. You further acknowledge that upon successful verification by us of the authenticity and sufficiency of the information you provide, we will then purchase the merchandise from the respective retailer for the sole purpose of immediately reselling it to you for the amounts presented and agreed-upon when you submitted your order. We will be responsible for fulfilling the order to you.
2.3 Our site will guide you through the steps you need to take to place an order and make a payment with us. Our order process allows you to check and amend any errors before submitting your order to us. Please take the time to read and check your order at each page of the order process.
2.4 After you place an order, you will receive an e-mail from us acknowledging that we have received your order. You will be billed after your order has been processed and the Contract between us will only be formed at that point.
2.5 We will send you an e-mail that confirms that the Products have been dispatched ("Dispatch Confirmation").
2.6 If we are unable to supply you with a Product, for example because that Product is not in stock or no longer available or because of an error in the price on our site or the respective retailer’s site, we will inform you of this by e-mail and we will not process your order. If you have already paid for the Products, we will refund you the full amount including any delivery costs charged as soon as possible and will incur no further liability to you.
2.7 You acknowledge that we shall be permitted to verify the authenticity and sufficiency of the information you provide, and if we are unable to verify the information automatically, our representatives may contact you and/or your credit card issuing bank to confirm your identity and/or your intent to place the order.
2.8 Please note that any Products made available through our site are intended for non-commercial use, and purchase of any Products for resale purposes is strictly prohibited.
2.9 By placing an order or making a payment through our site, you warrant that you are legally capable of entering into binding contracts. Your credit/debit card or other payment method will be billed by us and charges on your statement will be accompanied by the description "eShopWorld", “eSW”, or similar. You warrant that all the information provided to us for the purpose of processing payments is correct and you are authorized to utilize the proffered payment method. You acknowledge that we will be entitled to verify the authenticity and sufficiency of the payment information you provide.
2.10 You acknowledge and agree that we shall conduct pre-payment screening on you and the information you have provided. These checks are designed to prevent eShopWorld from conducting business with a sanctioned individual, entity or country in violation of any applicable laws and regulatory requirements in the territories we operate (including without limitation all customs laws and regulations and export and import controls administered by the U.S. government (including, but not limited to, the Export Administration Regulations under the U.S. Department of Commerce), the European Union and any other applicable jurisdiction).
2.11 We provide the service of determining the appropriate taxes and duties to be applied to the importation of the Product by you, and to collect, report and remit these taxes and duties, as applicable, on your behalf, to the appropriate tax authority. For imports into the European Union, the resulting taxes and duties are included in your payment and are paid by eShopWorld and there are no additional costs. By accepting the Terms, you authorise eShopWorld to accept any additional claims for levies (additional assessment) from the relevant customs authorities. For certain non-European imports, you will be responsible for the remittance of taxes and duties to the appropriate tax authority. All Products purchased from us are made pursuant to a shipment contract. Title to the Products shall transfer from the relevant retailer to eShopWorld after exportation of the Products. Title subsequently transfers from eShopWorld to you prior to importation of the Product and you shall be the importer of record.
2.12 By ordering Products from us, you hereby authorize a licensed customs broker chosen by us to act as your agent and transact business with foreign revenue authorities to clear your Products, account for duties and taxes on your behalf, return your Products and if applicable, prepare and submit refund claims on your behalf for any merchandise that you return.
