  1. Contractual Relationship

2.1 The KML online shop is an invitation to treat and by proceeding to select products displayed on our website and activating the “Check-Out” button you confirm your offer to purchase the products selected by you (“Order”). While we will immediately confirm the receipt of your Order by e-mail, using the e-mail address provided by you, the receipt confirmation does not constitute our acceptance of the offer.

2.2 We are entitled to accept your offer included in the Order within 5 [five] working days from the receipt of your Order. We will communicate our acceptance of your Order, either by means of an e-mail confirmation or by dispatching the ordered products (followed by an e-mail confirmation of the dispatch). The purchase contract will be concluded only on our acceptance of your Order in accordance with this paragraph 2.2. We are entitled to refuse your offer to purchase the products indicated in your Order, (a)  if we do not ship products to your country, (b) the products ordered by you are out of stock (c) if we are not able to successfully use the payment details provided by you, (d) if we are not satisfied with your creditworthiness and/or (e) for any other reason that, by our policies and work ethics justifies our refusal of your Order. 

2.3 We offer products for sale only until stocks last. Products that are out of stock will either be indicated on our website as such or they may no longer be displayed on the website. If you are in the process of building your Order and a product runs out of stock it will either no longer appear in your Order or a notification will appear to inform you that the Product is no longer available. 

2.4 Once you have built your Order, prior to confirming your offer to purchase the Products included in your Order by activating the Check-Out button, the details of your Order will be displayed and you will have the opportunity of correcting any errors and/or revising your Order.

 2.6 You as a consumer will be given the facility to create your own account with us, which will enable you to save certain details such as your payment and shipping details. Creating an account facilitates a faster and more efficient order conclusion and check-out process. However, you may create an account at your own discretion. For the purposes of setting up an account with us, you will be required to create and use your log-in credentials. Any information that you submit for the purposes of creating and maintaining an account with us shall be governed by our Privacy Policy and applicable Data Protection Law.

  1. Prices and Terms of Payment

3.1 The prices of products  (“Prices”) displayed on our website at the time you conclude an Order is binding.

3.2 Our prices do not include custom and import duties. If your shipping address is outside of the United Kingdom you may be subject to custom and import duties, which we will not be able to reflect in your invoice, as these will be calculated by the local authorities in the recipient country. Custom and import duties, if any shall be payable directly to the concerned authorities.

KML is not liable for a third-party’s terms of business and/or the way they collect and process your Personal Data.
