2. Prices and Payment
The prices for products displayed for sale on this website are as set out on the website. All prices are in Euros (€), exclusion of possible applicable VAT. Delivery may be charged in addition, and any such additional charges are clearly displayed under “Shipping Costs”, where they apply.

Prices may change at any time prior to (but not after) acceptance of Your order. The prices in Pounds listed on our website are just an indication to give You a rough idea about the price in this currency.

In the unlikely event that the price of an item has been incorrectly advertised on this website, we will contact You by e-mail (at the address provided with Your order details) or telephone You, to ask whether You wish to proceed with the order at the correct price. If You are not happy to proceed, or we are unable to obtain Your instructions, we will cancel the order and provide You with a full refund of any monies debited.

By using a credit card or PayPal/Bank account to pay for Your order, You confirm that this card or account being used is Yours. For fraud-prevention we might request additional identity prove for order larger than €150,-. All credit card and PayPal/Bank account holders are subject to validation checks and authorization by the card issuer, bank and/or PayPal. If card issuer, bank and/or PayPal refuses to authorize payment we will not accept Your order and we will not be liable for any delay or non-delivery and we are not obliged to inform You of the reason for the refusal. We are not responsible for Your card issuer, PayPal or bank charging You as a result of our processing of the payment in accordance with Your order.

Your credit card and account details are always transferred encrypted using the secure encryption technique SSL.

For orders made from the European Union, 21% VAT is added to Your order. VAT is not charged to orders from other countries. If You are a VAT-registered business within any EU country and specify Your business name and VAT number at the time of ordering, VAT will not be charged. You can provide this information with Your order. The shopping cart will however still add VAT, but this will be compensated when we process the order.

3. Delivery
Subject to availability, Leoné will use its reasonable endeavors to deliver the products You have ordered, within 1-14 days of You placing the order, but we cannot accept any liability for late deliveries which are due to circumstances outside of our reasonable control. We will deliver the products direct to the address You specify when You submit Your order.
Leoné cannot ship items from the same order to multiple addresses.

Deliveries will be made to Your door. Leoné is not responsible for any additional carrying or positioning of products.

Most of the items dispatched are insured for additional peace of mind. Check these shipments before You sign for them. If the shipment arrives damaged, You must note that fact on Your receipt/bill of lading and have the driver acknowledge with their signature. The Customer must report shipping damage to the carrier and to Leoné within ten days of receipt of products. You are responsible for initiating all freight claims with the carrier.

Once delivered, the products will become Your property (provided they have been paid for in full) and Your responsibility. Leoné will not accept any liability for their loss, damage or destruction after they have been delivered.

In case You wants us to deliver the ordered item to a different address other than the invoice (credit card and/or PayPal registered) address, then we can ask to send us further documents to prove the legitimate identity and address. We reserve the right to decline shipments to a different delivery address. We will always try to contact You if we have to send the order to the invoice address.

If the products You order are not available, for whatever reason, Leoné will inform You of the position by e-mail (at the address provided with Your order details) or telephone. If the products are temporarily out of stock, we will ask if You wish to wait for the products to become available.

Returns cannot be accepted without prior authorization. Before You can return a product You first have to request RMA (Return Material Authorization). If the return is authorized then we will provide You with information about how to return the product. These authorizations are only valid for 7 days from the date of issue. Shipping costs of the return are always paid by the customer. For some products we use the RMA policies of our suppliers, so it’s also possible that You are requested to send the product directly to our supplier.

Products sent back without prior returns authorization will be returned back to You and the cost of this delivery charged to Your account

The returning products should always contain all its accessories and should be in re-sellable conditions. If the products have been used or not in a re-sellable condition, then the refund may be rejected or higher re-stocking fee will be applicable.
