10. Our contract
When you place an order to purchase a product from Chocobong.com, we will send you an e-mail confirming receipt of your order and containing the details of your order. Your order represents an offer to us to purchase a product which is accepted by us when we send e-mail confirmation to you that we've dispatched that product to you (the "Dispatch Confirmation E-mail"). That acceptance will be complete at the time we send the Dispatch Confirmation E-mail to you. Any products on the same order which we have not confirmed in a Dispatch Confirmation E-mail as having been dispatched do not form part of that contract.
Please review our Returns Policy, which applies to products purchased from us. In addition to our Returns Policy, you are entitled to a statutory cooling-off period of seven business days. Please be aware that Chocobong.com's products are all food items with a restricted shelf life. We are unable to accept returns on items purchased more than 14 days after their delivery date.
12. Pricing and availability
We list availability information for products sold by us on the website, including on each product information page. Beyond what we say on that page or otherwise on the website, we cannot be more specific about availability. Please note that dispatch estimates are just that. They are not guaranteed dispatch times and should not be relied upon as such although we do our very best to meet your delivery date requests. As we process your order, we will inform you by e-mail if any products you order turn out to be unavailable.
Despite our best efforts, it is possible that a product can be mis-priced. Take confidence however, that we check all prices as part of our post order processing. If an items correct price is lower than our stated price, we charge the lower amount and send you the product. If an items correct price is consequentially higher than our stated price, we will, at our discretion, either contact you for instructions before dispatch or cancel your order and notify you of such cancellation.
