These are the terms and conditions governing the use of this website and the agreement that operates between us and you (hereinafter, "the Terms"). These Terms set out the rights and obligations of all users (hereinafter, "You" / "Your") and those of Awadolls (hereinafter, "us" / "our" / "we" / "the Vendor") in relation to the goods/services offered by us through this website or any of the other websites to which we may link (hereinafter, collectively known as the "Awadolls Services"). Before You click on the "Authorize Payment" button at the end of the ordering process, please carefully read these Terms and our Privacy Statement. By using this website or placing an order through it, You are consenting to be bound by these Terms and our Privacy Statement. If You do not agree to all of the Terms and the Privacy Statement, do not place an order.
These Terms may be subject to amendment, so You should carefully read them prior to placing any order.
2. USE OF OUR WEBSITE
These Terms are the only conditions that are applicable to the use of this website and they replace all other conditions, except with the express, prior written agreement of the Vendor. These Terms are important for both You and us as they have been designed to create a legally binding agreement between us, protecting your rights as a valued customer and our rights as a business. You agree that, by placing your order, You unreservedly accept these Terms, having read them.
You agree that:
1. You may only use the website to make legitimate enquiries or orders.
2. You will not make any speculative, false or fraudulent orders. If we are reasonably of the opinion that such an order has been made, we shall be entitled to cancel the order and inform the relevant authorities.
3. You also undertake to provide correct and accurate e-mail, postal and/or other contact details to us and acknowledge that we may use these details to contact You in the event that this should prove necessary (see our Privacy Statement ).
4. If You do not give us all of the information that we need, we may not be able to complete your order.
By placing an order through the website, You warrant that You are at least 18 years old and are legally capable of entering into binding contracts.
3. HOW THE CONTRACT IS FORMED
The information set out in the Terms and the detail contained on this website do not constitute an offer for sale but rather an invitation to treat. No contract in respect of any products shall exist between You and us until your order has been accepted by us. If we do not accept your offer and funds have already been deducted from your account, these will be fully refunded.
To place an order, You will be required to follow the shopping process online and press the "Authorize payment" button to submit the order. After this, You will receive an e-mail from us acknowledging that we have received your order (the "Order Confirmation"). Please note that this does not mean that your order has been accepted, as your order constitutes your offer to us to buy one or more products from us. All orders are subject to acceptance by us, and we will confirm such acceptance to You by sending You an e-mail that confirms that the product has been dispatched (the "Shipment Confirmation”). The contract for the purchase of a product between us (Contract) will only be formed when we send You the Shipment Confirmation.
The Contract will relate only to those products whose dispatch we have confirmed in the Shipment Confirmation. We will not be bound to supply any other products which may have been part of your order until the dispatch of such products has been confirmed in a separate Shipment Confirmation.
4. AVAILABILITY OF PRODUCTS
All orders for products are subject to availability and in this regard, in the event of supply difficulties or because products are no longer in stock, we reserve the right to give You information about substitute products of an equal or higher quality and value which You can order. If You do not wish to order such substitute products, we will refund any monies that You might have paid.
5. REFUSAL OF ORDER
We reserve the right to withdraw any products from this website at any time and/or remove or edit any materials or content on this website. Whilst we will make our best efforts to always process all the orders, there may be exceptional circumstances which mean that we may need to refuse to process an order after we have sent You an Order Confirmation, which we reserve the right to do at any time, at our sole discretion.
We will not be liable to You or any other third party by reason of our withdrawing any product from this website, whether it has been sold or not, removing or editing any materials or contents on this website or for refusing to process or accept an order after we have sent You the Order Confirmation.
6. YOUR RIGHTS TO CANCEL "COOLING OFF"
If You are contracting as a consumer, You may cancel a Contract at any time within 30 days, as of the confirmation of the dispatch of your order. In this case, You shall receive a full refund of the price paid for the products in accordance with our Returns Policy (see below Clause 13). The return of a gift card shall be governed by the Use Conditions of the Gift Card.
Your right to cancel a Contract only applies to products that are returned in the same condition as You received them. You should also include all of the products instructions, documents and wrappings. Any product which is damaged or not in the same condition as You received it or which is worn simply beyond opening the product will not be refunded. You should therefore take reasonable care of the product(s) while they are in your possession.

• Customized items
• Music CDs/DVDs; whose original wrapping has been removed

This provision does not affect your statutory rights as a consumer.
Subject to availability, (see Clause 5 above), and unless there are any exceptional circumstances, we will endeavor to fulfill your order for product(s) listed in the Order Confirmation by the delivery date set out in the Order Confirmation or, if no estimated delivery date is specified, within 15 days of the date of the Order confirmation.
Reasons for delay could include:
• Customization of products;
• Specialized items;
• Unforeseen circumstances; or

Please remember that we do not deliver on Saturdays or Sundays except in the case of the virtual gift card which will be delivered on the date indicated by you.
For the purposes of these Conditions, the "delivery" shall be deemed to have taken place or that the order has been delivered at the time that receipt of the order is signed for at the agreed delivery address, although the virtual gift card shall be deemed to be delivered in accordance with the Use Conditions of the Gift Card, and in all cases n the delivery date of the virtual card to the e-mail address indicated by you.
UNABLE TO DELIVER
If we are unable to deliver the goods after two attempts, we will try to find a safe secure place to leave your parcel.

This clause shall not apply to the virtual gift card for which the delivery shall be governed by the Use Conditions of the Gift Card and the above clause 8.
RISK AND TITLE
